I love that the early appearances of the Red Ghost had him in a green jumpsuit. (It was his political affiliation that made him red, not his costume). One assumes that this was back in the day all the baddies were secondary colors for the most part, with red, yellow and blue usually saved for heroes like Spidey, Superman and Captain America. Bad guys like (and antihero Hulk) got green, purple and oranges for the most part. Later, Red Ghost got a spiffy Red Jumpsuit to go with the communist moniker, but I was thrown as a kid trying to make sense of the costume being mismatched with the name.

Bonus points for having super powered and highly trained ape-o-nauts as sidekicks rather than a college roommate (albeit a pilot), a girlfriend and her teenaged brother like that cretin Richards.

#swampwalk quarantine isolation day 403

Whew, getting pretty hot in the sunlight at midday. Says 66F but I call shenanigans on that…it feels like the 80s. No wind off of the bay, but once I was in the shade, it was feeling more my style.

#bogsafari – critters were out in major force today! Several lizards / skinks were sunning happily on the stump pylons en route home, many turkey vultures in the air, insects buzzing and flying about, from bumblebees to horseflies. A couple of frogs by the water’s edge in the wooded areas, they are probably eating quite well. One osprey, a pair of cardinals, three (at least) squirrels. Humans in the neighborhood continue to not wear masks, even those working next to one another to move a hot tub out of a house down the road from ours.

Next up on my Vonnegut reading list is Galapagos. Had to take a little break for a bit…some writers get a bit same-y if taken too close together, Kurt doubly so. Filler between books has been nonfiction about World War One, asorted marvel comics digests and Maureen Johnson’s “Truly Devious” books. Pretty entertaining all told.
