A message from Big Ernie!



Big Ernie thinks things are slow, too.


Retired Fire Chief #Alan Brunacini used to say, “The farther you are away from your last major incident, the closer you are to your next.” So, Southern California firefighters, LEO’s & emergency management personnel, we must be ready.


Is that a Photoshop or did that naturally occur. I’m leaning hard towards Photoshop. Usually clouds all look like chickens.

You are correct. The vertical feather is photoshopped. You erase that, and it’s clearly a hen pecking off to the right. You have an eye for detail!

Same image was going around about a decade ago in Central Oregon with the caption ‘Big Ernie Salutes Deschutes’.

You nailed it. Story of the picture from the old site.
“Big Ernie Salutes Deschutes: We were on the highway between Sisters and Crooked River Ranch on Thursday Sept 4, 2003 when I caught this once in a lifetime photo. I was watching the B & B Complex column when this appeared. I grabbed my camera and snapped this shot, then in a few seconds it was gone. Photo compliments of BLM Tom.”
