I wish I could say my work here is done, but the Bulldags of Fresno never sleep. The Flames, BTW, never HAD colors, accepting ALL colors, shapes and sizes. The closest we ever came to symbological representation was the Budweiser handkerchief I inherited from Liz, who wore it to biker's functions (but not to Biker's Field). We flew the hankie at the last Eastside solstice reunion I attended. Millis blew his nose on it for good luck.

zBrown, I see you have a plenitude of holes in the yard. I counted 13.
How many boids in Hitchcock Hall?
How many voids in porosity casting?
How many holes will it take till we learn,
everybody poops and the poop's gotta go somewhere.

Mice just go.

I'm fixin' a hole where the dirt falls in - 13 times, sure glad it isn't Friday.

George told me one night, someday Bruce, all this could be yours, but the sun could shine in your backyard someday too. One never knows.

I fixed the "Hole in My Heart" yesterday. I didn't know I had one, but it got filled.

Lots of fresh air. The ides is past.

It rained. I did not get wet.

I got my renaissance fix.

Yosemite, I love ya, babe, God knows I do.

Have another hit of fresh air. Sweet California Sunshine and Shadow.

Let's see some obscured shots from Mister Obscurity himself.

Justin was there. We met at Lenna's last week. He asked where was Ayshe?

"Turkey," I said. "She's back with Mohammed." No, I just said she left to go back to Ankara and her life as a big-time bridge expert. I hope she understands, if she's lurking, that I was enormously impressed by the similarities in our two lives. It showed me that humans are more alike in ways we can't imagine than we can imagine.

And then I went out to Leidig for an hour to see my other rock bros.

Say M-Ansel, you're getting pretty good with that camera, I'd say. I'll be pilfering your gallery soon.

Keep them coming or going, whichever suits your fancy.
