Hey, that sounds great. We can do it.

I'm reading Trevanian in preparation. Watching the Eiger Sanction again.

And pondering the lyrics of Lambchop.

If total darkness is the absence of light, then what is total light?

"Blues are born
out of the darkness
with the help of light."--Al U. Nedano from this film

In the heart, in the idle mind,
in the eyes, in the daily grind,
in your want, in your need,
therein lies the bluish seed.


They have the blues in Chico,
They get the blues in Redding,
Both are lucky they're not flooded out
When Shasta's tears are shedding.



Piss on my grave when I'm gone.
I won't be there, son.
I'll be playing the bluest blues. No, son, I can't lose.

It's a cryin' shame about Alving Lee. I haven't listened to him in like ten years.

Kinda begs the question, what did you do thereafter?


On the way up to Joe Herb park I stopped in here for gas.

Gas was a much better deal in the old days.

SCSeagoat, very nice to hear.

I suppose it might be the height of discourtesy to remind ANYONE that nice is a seldom-used word that fell out of use about the year I was born--the French, sacre bleu, have bequeathed the word and we seem to have forgotten it originally meant "foolish" or "stupid."

It has been modernized by hipsters to "grooby." Interesting, isn't it?

n.b., thanks for cheeking in. Peeking + checking = cheeking. :)

Terrible triffids troubled Toledo till Terrible took the tiller.

Things went from Terrible to Worse, Worse, and Worse, Attorneys-at-Law, when he had to defend himself from the results.

Toledo tanked and thanked Terrible not at all.
All in all, it was quite a thriller.

Holy Toledo!! Was that Boris I saw, alive as you or me?

Ron loves to hug the rock using Xtreme form...

His formula for success might run like this:

X(treme) > (O, o)(0 + 0) = Nothin' to it.

Xcellent photo, Shawn.

My apology to Clint.

Credit: Jim Shirley

Here is PROOF that I AM WRONG!

This goes back to the very first page of The Flames.

I need to explain: had I found this shot earlier, or noticed it, I should say, My Apology would have been extended that much sooner to Clint Cummins.

It is easy to see the top of the cliff is Pinnacular in form. Sort of like this knuckle-head's brow.

My chagrin is controllable, however.

As in previous posts, here I stand with pie in the face, the fatal finger in place, and still having fun doing it.

In fact, I may have learned something--just what I will need to process.

Just another day behind the grill of the Taco Wagon.

Ya want some Taco Sauce with that disculpa, Old Gringo?

Also, FTR, that is moi on the rope. Mathis don't do face climbs if he can help it. And that's m'style, too. Toesies.

The intention was to get better than I am now.
See this thread for the story:http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=2086616&msg=2086616#msg2086616

Gentle looking peak looks like Tioga or Tioooga. Gardisky lake is just out of view. Short walk straight up from road to Saddlebag. Used to be great fishing there before everyone and his sister started slinging bait. Bait slingers!
Tioga peak is now a good place to watch bighorns.

Well, Ron, I hope you have it goin' on. How's the gently-aging process f*#ked with you here lately? Can you bite through steel yet?

Tad must've been a tad insecure cuz of us, I think. Or tryin' to impress Maureen. He forgot himself and left out the stretching, I just know it. If you think you haven't done enough, do more. It's the right way.

Sorry, Tad. You're right there! Well, it's OK, I've THOUGHT about execising to the extent I've taken two five-pound dumbells and thoroughly stretched using them in a free-form way, depending on how I feel. I feel loose. I can haul it up anything as long as there's a rope, just like always, except it'll take two time longer. Joints, that's the thing. Not the muscles. At least it is for me.

Never lift until you've stretched. Never get on a machine until then, either. I know that, and I haven't lifted since 1965 and haven't ever tried a machine. All that racquetball and not one time on a weight or iso machine! Like walking by the climbing gym, if one were here.

Eat more salad than you think is good for you and go have a fun night tossing pies with the wife! It's more fun than is good for you, too, I bet.

Chocolate mousse sounds appealing, too. LOL

hey there, say, say, mouse...

mouse...

painting is coming a long nice...
(not as your previous note, on nice)...

:)


say, nice shots, too, of the 'rambling man on mt'...
forgot:
also, nice snow, 'like it up here' seems like
why start rambling, in that case... :))

i love rocks, but today was not so happy with them...
meaning:
those odd rocks in your photo of liz and kids,
i could not paint into their proper 'noteworthy presents'
thus, it presented itself more like a dirt-mound, :(

the dirt mound IS solidify, however, so there is hope...
:)


everything else equals:

Wow, two Chico posts in a week! Great to hear from TT of the Feather River Country.

There is a prize going out tomorrow with your name on it. Well, not exactly, but you'll see.
