A better view of that awesome Emperor Norton statue at Comstock.

Hail!

Previously, previously, previously, previously.

also, I was previously unaware of The Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus: The Clamper flag was a hoop skirt, with the words "This is the flag we fight under."

    I find it both unbelievable and somehow totally expected that you have never heard of ECV.

    Oh Dear, oh dear...

    Not only are there Clampers in my Dad's yacht club, one of them is the current Norton (and if you are not aware, Norton is the eternal leader of the society.)

    Clampers are protectors of "widders an' orphans" and the grandest pranksters of all time.

    When I was a wee lad being hauled around to various Wild West steam train and steamboat events by my Dad, it was always the highlight of my day to see the Clampers carousing around in their gold-rush era togs and black powder pistols.

    Jeff and I have contemplated applying for membership many's the time.

    I like the Lego-man feet, for some reason.
