BRANCHING OUT ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Heads were turning at 7th and Montana this morning as a Curious Stick Figure -- a woman balancing what appeared to be a large tree branch across her shoulders -- made the scene. "Good Lord," I said to Ace Photographer Kovar as the Stick Figure made her way across 7th Street, "The Loons are Branching Out!" But this was no ordinary bird: She was dressed like an Ancient Chinese Water Carrier, complete with a Floppy Straw Hat and a Long, Black Braid running down her back. All that was missing were the water buckets on either side of her stick ... and a rickshaw in case she got tired. Rumor has it she was heading to the Palisades, where she's building a nest overlooking the Pacific ...!

Is it some sort of strange walking stick? One where you don't actually put it on the ground?

I'm stumped. [snicker]

Wonder if the braid is real?

Maybe she's divining for water? But then she'd have had two prongs
