Clint Eastwood comes to Blue Island.

Well, a brief non-birding is a photo of my Mom (wearing the Hard Rock jacket) with Clint Eastwood on Tuesday. Clint was in my hometown of Blue Island directing "Flags of Our Fathers," the story of the men who raised the flag on Iwo Jima. They tried to keep the filming a bit of a secret, but word gets out...

This is the second major film to be filned in Blue Island, "Light of Day" with Michael J. Fox and Joan Jett was filmed in town when I was a kid, maybe around 1985??? They also filmed an episode of "Cupid" (with Jeremy Piven and Paula Marshall, I think) and two episodes of "Early Edition" in town in the 1990s.
