excitable boy had a good sense of humour and knew his words, didn't care much for authority, not sure of his photographic skills, other than a photographic memory, never reneged

the bad news is, I cannot remember exactly what I said, so rather than distort history - I'm just gonna let it slide

Becky is the owner of Pacifica. She's a busy lady. Runs the show here in Merced for all these out-of-towners. There's a shot of her and her grandson earlier on with some fabric I bought there.

Generally, the approved protocol when posting photos of trees, unless of course it's just one tree as in Gypsy's post, is to post a count of the number of trees and and identification of the species being documented.

Unless of course they are undocumented and appear in the photo illegally.

Photos of apes are exempt from the protocol, since most do not have a camera and therefore only a passing knowledge of the rules.

Tree huggers!

zBrownish-Redd Man, the mystopudlian link.

How in the dickens...But they were extinct.

And you can't beat that chest with a MC Hammer!

But how's his belay stance manner? He doesn't just sit there and yammer?



Clint Eastwood's in the tail endo that Edison reel,
that VINTAGE REEL,

trying to claim it in the name of the holy catholic church.

He should have just talked it over with Francis.

It had everything to do with Clint's sister Sara, played by Shirley, the sister of Warren Beatty.

Thanks, Ron.

Ron Kauk, ladies and gentlemen.

I was lamely wondering and wandering on Main ST. in search of whatever came and I got shots of the moon.
Credit: mouse from merced
Credit: mouse from merced
They weren't great, but I didn't know my best shots were waiting just in the same block. While I was wandering, ROK was in the MCAC discussing the sacred.


Just what I was saying, right, neebee?


In nature's way
everything is
talking, and
we just need to
remember how
to listen and
respect.


This is going to take some time to digest, settle, and be absorbed as spirit food. It was a fact I missed the presentation, the slides, the lecture. Spare me o christ. I made it to the after-party and started asking questions, dumber than snot, but found Ron and put it to him, WTH, Bro? We'd never met. We seemed to be in agreement. Kids need mountains and hills and seashores and trees and rocks and sand to expand and grow grand. That's basically it.

I've done my part by giving. I suggest you find the opportunity to help ROK the planet, the moon, and the stars.

You can't afford to ignore opportunity.

In mysterious ways, he muses, the universe expands to incorporate. Why souldn't you?

It's all over now, BABY BLUE.

Here. Have a think about how you got where you were ready.
