Clouds. Always in the way...

We are soaking it up here in Merced.

Yosemite's gonna be real wet today.

The Flames blame the rain, Mary Jane, and Cain, who was no Boy Scout, or he might have bothered to find some dry wood. His brother was able to. Cain blamed the rain. Gotta blame it on somethin'.

Hook me up with some words, man?

The only thing missing or on the right of these dishes is the salad and bean soup with red sauce to put on top, already ate the beef tongue they bring as well. If you ate the last of the rice they will ask if you want more or salad,bread,soup or the rest of these dishes.

They do or have sandwiches especially lamb and garlic on the lighterside.

Then this is dessert : typical Pyrenees bread and blue cheese.

Tried to get Ben into smoking ciiiiiigars on the way back. No way he said: guess we could ride on the top, will ask if he has a rack.

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
Don't know what I was thinkin, never trained for climbing BITD.
Feels alittle better today, I'll give it a week and see how it feels.
