I have loved meadow larks ever since Sacramento in the
50s, gong to school each morning.

Alpine start. Alpine start.

Never happened!! Whatchoo sayin'? What is goin' throuh my head is a bunch of guys layin' in bed.
Won't get up till they've been fed.
Time was in Camp 4, you'd open the tent dooer and smell Camp 4--Cawfee!
And it often took the place of the challenge.
We'd end up boogerin' the day away.

Yeah. Listening to
Weight!

Did I mention I HATE alpine starts? So why did I subject my fragile
psyche to so many? Or was that 'sposed to read 'psycho'?

Dang, Reilly, it was worth it for as long as you took to get back into the sack!

Heroes do with no cawfee!

Shoulda, couldn't, woulda had we a guide. Jist o' Jim and Dillis. Occasionaly Lloyd. The Bros. Bircheff.

No concerted efforts on our part, just relying on, "I took along a real rack."

"Well, should we use just pins or just nuts?"

Cryptic answers, all we got, except from Lloyd. He had a license.

wimp.com "Climbing tools--the piton." Suggested dideo.

That's the wimp. Sorry. A4, let's go to the cawfee shop.

In removing the piton, should it resist coming free, connect your cleaning biner, which is conncted to your waist, and hit the $&*#@! pin and push your weight away at the same time.

WHACK!

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Waste time, f*#k around, just don't make another sound.

WHANG!

We're good...

Providing you are suspended from ascenders, of course!

Wooo-hooo-hooo!

Motherís Joy: Jeff's m'Boy!

Barbara raised me to love the One Who gave us life and breath.
This is dedicated to my best friend, the better half of Mouse and Jeff.

She and Betty both were both concerned
When our diplomae we had earned.
And to the Valley our faces turned.

There it was we met our fate
In forms we loved and forms weíd hate
With stacks of pancakes on our plate.

Jeff could really cook, and jam, and screw,
I washed, belayed, and wished I knew
A nice blonde easy gal or two.

All that happened long ago,
In days of Yo in old Camp 4,
Heís sixty-five. (Iím sixty-four.)

Heís older now and weíre both lots wiser.
I owe my life to Lilly and Pfizer,
And to Jeff. (canít wipe my eyes, here).



Mom ďcame to meĒ this morning after I was out shooting on the balcony.
She and Jeff share the same birthday, the twenty-ninth of March.
I was pretty hammered last night. This nearly worked.

Happy Birthday coming, Mom.
Weíll see about the REV.

Jeff Mathis' address, birthday card-wise

PO Box 982
Groveland, CA. 95321

Ph. 209-878-0423

He's not online, never will be, but he's still connected.

I been out fightin' the law again, sure hope it doesn't win.
Here's a couple from Corona Del Mar (could be South Laguna), where I used to hang out.

I can't remember if they tore down 2 or 3 houses to build this one. Some guy told me he knew who owned it, but he wasn't saying.
I just grinned and shook his hand, no was all I said.

After you cut down those termite infested trees, you have to whack them up into little pieces. Always good to have an ax-man like Jimi around to listen to when you're whacking. Was kinda irritated anyway cuz all my orange shirts were in the washer.

On a clear day you can see all the way from Corona Del Mar to Maui (it's somewhere some few meters over the rainbow).
Just don't judge me by my shoes.

Nice tan, Chan.

For sure, one of the best autobiographies I have read.
Try this Life and then We Gotta Get Outa This Place by an animal or a bird, one.

Catching the full moon bus to the Valley in the morning.

I'll be in touch.

Easter Break begins at MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

There are no black and white days scheduled in the next month.

The view down the avenue from Union Point.

Killing some time waiting for the bus.
I had the whole hog for breakfast.
I penned this last night while the moon was directly above, more or less.

Moonyanna

Bridal night on Bridalveil Creek

the legend of Tis-sa-ack
http://www.sacred-texts.com/nam/ca/lly/lly28.htm
the legend of Po-ho-no
http://www.sacred-texts.com/nam/ca/lly/lly29.htm

The orb and the dome come together and kiss.
Long-lost cousins or a maybe just a loving couple?
The granite dome is three-quarter orb to begin with, in a way of seeing which is perfectly natural.
Oh, Diana.
Oh, the Lizzes.
Oh, Tis-sa-ack.
Oh, North Dome.
Oh, three-Starr King.
Oh, old Po-ho-no.
Oh, papoose.
Oh, donít you all moon-dance on the same night.
I canít be in two places at once.
Not when Iím right here in the center of the universe.
Did God plan when He created?
He should not have had to, being who He is.
But move over here, itís the center of MY universe, a skewed vision of the real, maybe more real, I can't tell.
So this can happen, though not on the same night, of course:
This kissing of former planetary cousins, at one time one being.
It is illusion, practiced by the lens-man, who plans both illustration and illusion.
There is no kissing of Luna and Rock in reality.
It is simply a nice conceit.
Itís good, though.

I guess He could have gotten it better, if He did plan; it is all part of the mystery of the universe.
I just think I might want to carry this night around in my wallet as a memento.
Along with the one thatís already there of the Golden Arches and the Liz and my self.
It will help me remember my universe belongs to the one who made me.
Or is it the other way Ďround, do you think?
