It's toatalizingly ludicrecious that I could be miscombobulated by such perniculinarily synchopated passages of mellifluous soniphograms.

This is the best, in many opinions, of Linda's pieces. It took me several looks before I saw it. This is the same area that I traipsed around as a young teen, plinking at birds and posts and picking up buckets of crawdads.

This is in the southern end of the county.

She tells me she's lived in Yosemite thirty years. This show is all about how she sees this place. I took the two above before the show ever opened and she says HELLO, WAYNE & CINDY!

There other things at the exhibit, too.

These are reputedly from Oroville, just a stone's throw (though who would) from Nita & TTR.

Why 'these' when only one? Good question - bad explanation.

58' wood interurban for Northern Electric Railway (California). Note the corner windows, and the arched clerestory windows.

It seems to me that driving every kind of rig that's ever been made and only being rewarded with weed, whites or wine is not that great a deal.

I'll go ask Alice or Terrible Herbst, though.

One thing for sure, that ain't Casy Jones in the bowtie.

All the same, old bean, the numbers add up to thirteen.

2 + 3 + 8 = 13

It takes no Einsteen to seen that.

As for the driver's potential for disaster, we can only pray: In Casei donat Caeser, Deus suscipiet eam.
Never fear, the cowcatcher will catch her.

similarly, by the identity property of addition

2 + 3 + 8 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 13

238000

In a RGB color space, hex #238000 is composed of 13.7% red, 50.2% green and 0% blue. Whereas in a CMYK color space, it is composed of 72.7% cyan, 0% magenta, 100% yellow and 49.8% black. It has a hue angle of 103.6 degrees, a saturation of 100% and a lightness of 25.1%. #238000 color hex could be obtained by blending #46ff00 with #000100. Closest websafe color is: #339900.

And I just had an email from Larry Jones.

Let's see, dinner with CO Williams (chili cheese dogs, fries, o-rings and wine), a missive accompanied by infoon the name Aisha, as well as this about that.

Is someone trying to say somthing to me?

"I've attached the pic I was working from so you can see what I was trying to match. I agree the blue is a bit much, but I had painted it at least three times and Frank and I were getting tired of it. Remember that rivers, as with all bodies of water, act as mirrors and reflect the sky."

I wonder about the coincidence but let's chalk it up to God's knowing more than me.

I will say this--the bridge over the Merced River in the photo has obscured the reflection of the sky on the surface of the water. Larry ignored the shadow entirely. Free to paint it how you see it or want to see it. Not the case in portraiture. I appreciate the pains you are taking with the eyes, neebee. Sounds like you know how to go about it, too. What, me worry?

As Prince Buster observes in "Hard Man fe Dead"

Them seh, the cat's got a nine life
But this man got ninety-nine life, cause...
Them pick him up, you lick him down,
Him bounce right back,
What a hard man fe dead! (Hard man fe dead!)

Them boil one pot of chocolate tea.
And all the fried fish they caught in the sea
They also got six quart o' rum
Saying that they waiting for the nine night to come

It gets me to wondering just what the nine night is, so:

The Merced Transpo Center, our Bus Line Hub.
This is on the old SP tracks, now BN. There is no Amtrak service here. It is on the Santa Fe across town about a half a mile.

It seems cockamamie to me to call it the transpo CENTER, when the bulk of Yosemite tourist traffic is through the train, not the Greyhound, which stops here, but not at the Amtrak. The riders of the Greyhound can catch the YARTS bus here, however, and this is where the bulk of Yosemite workers board, too. It is one block off of West Main ST. There is a connecting city bus from station to station, as well. You just have to be able to read the posted schedules and ASK THE BUS DRIVER, cuz it's not easy.

I'm mentioning this only because I met lots and lots of sojourners to Yosemite in the used bookstore, wandering around killing time on their way to/from the Amtrak or the Transpo. We had a visitors' book they could sign to make them feel homesick, I guess. It made for a good keepsake for the family when the owner of the shop passed.

say there hey, Neebee

Glad you liked the photo. It was taken in CA, but my aunt lived her life in Michigan. Her husband, Uncle Bill, took care of my mom on the farm there in Ironwood, after my grandfather died.


So Mouse, not only do you hang with Tim Leary's bro, you also get email from Mr. Jones.

I know something's happening, just don't know what it is.

Some of those cows would boogie on away when I tried to catch 'em. Kinda catch as catch can you might say.



How are moo?

The closest glacier was at El Portal.

The closest laundry was in the back of the shack. You needed to supply everything from soap to nuts.

It wasn't Ivory that was dumped off Glacier Point, zBrown, back then, they hadn't any...it was glowing soap nuts.

The closest gold in them hills was where ya found it.

Mercury Zephyr

The Mercury Zephyr was a compact car sold by the Lincoln-Mercury division of Ford Motor Company for the North American market. Introduced as a replacement for the Mercury Comet, it was produced from 1978 to 1983.

Along with its corporate cousin, the Ford Fairmont, it was the first use in the Mercury division of the long-lived unibody Fox platform, which did not completely leave production until 2004.

Zephyr, taken from a poetic name for the west wind, has a considerable history in the Ford line. Yee-haw!

It was first used in the late 1930s for a smaller, less expensive Lincoln, which provided the basis for the first Continental. From 1950 to 1972, it was used on a European Ford model. In 2006, it returned to the Lincoln line once again.

They are now extinct. Kaput. No mas.

A little-known fact, the line-dancing craze started in Detroit.
