There was a town called Bagby upriver from the Exchequer Dam on the Merced River. It was home to a friend of my brother Mike, a man known to him as Old Dog Charley. He got washed out by the rising McClure Reservoir. He sold Mike some of his hunting hounds when he moved.

Always heard of this fellow; turns out he lives here in Merced in the off-season when he's not operating the China Peak Ski Resort above Freesnow. I've seen him on their ads on the local TV channels.

He's a bit younger than I, and had a recent injury. This was taken last Friday. The ski season's over at China Peak. He's philosophical about it, as one must try to be.

It's not the end of the world.

It's fall in Brazil, after all.

The seasonal wheel keeps turning, never stops. It's not a perpetual thing, however. It's gonna end sometime, it can't defy the laws of physics, only draw the process out somehow. It will collapse, eventually.

Is Modesto considered a suburb of Merced?
If Merced is the gateway to Yosemite will my senior pass work there?

96 Tears, exactly.

No, Mo isn't a subdivision of, nor a hamlet of, and definitely not a suburb of Merced. Though a mayor of Merced's maiden name was Nora Hamlet. She ran this place which used to be Cecil's Golden Chicken, at the end of The Drag on "G" St., the other half to Vernon's on "R" St., a mile down 17th St., now Main St.

It's now this pig eatery. They have lots and lots of bacon. And good Foster Farms chicken, you bet.

Here's what went down, in twenty-five pictures or less, when the Rev came to visit. He actually said, "Let's do lunch," and I was gonna oblige him anyway by taking him to the 510 Bistro for his big-time 65th, but he had his face set for In n' Out. I convinced him he's 65 and shouldn't eat that crap. And he oughta eat more chicken and fish. We had mushroom bisque. He had tea, I a Bloody Mary. Arrgh... And salmon. He burgered up as usual.

After we ate we noticed these two out in the park.

We saw them in a hurry. We hurried back to town so the Rev could scoot back to Greeley Hill and Denise. His dad is doing fine after the hernia surgery, so he's relieved as can be.
I excused myself at the Coffee Bandits and we parted company with some PLANS for this May, tentatively. We're looking for an old beater.

Nope, Randy never worked for George Lucas. We used to go to his studio a lot for the "rushes" of films Randy was working on; but he never worked for Industrial Light and Magic. We had friends that did. We had friends in "high places"

I took this photo in 2006. I wonder what is happening with the temple these days. At that point, there was a fence around it and somebody living in a trailer. The place was pretty run down and had been seriously vandalized.

Nice photos you two.

Seems like a trend, I never worked for George Lukas either, though my friend Wally (physicist & musician) worked for Stevie Wonder.

Half the people can be part right some of the time I guess.

Is Santa Cruz a suburb of Merced? I have only been there once. Friends were living in what seemed like a four-story Victorian house previously occupied by one of the U.S. Presidents. It wasn't Nixon.

I notice by the back of your head mouse, that you do not have eyes there and that perhaps you have mastered the art of tripodery (ask DMT on the correct spelling).

If you contrast mastered and mustered, on first cut they don't appear to be that different, on deeper reflection they still don't appear to be that different, especially when say comparing mastered and mustard.

Think about it, but not for too long.




Legal update: In the words of my friend George (Harrison, not Lukas) - "I'll have to admit it gettting better, so better all the time".

He was down, it was almost too late, he knew he was doomed and it wouldn't be long. Yoda mustered his Force and mastered the sittuation.

It was Colonel Mustered, with a poison pen in the master suite of La Bahia Motel, SC, Seagoat.

Munster mastered mustard in chef school.

I'm wondering if this might be the Santa Cruz house and whether maybe the President "visited".

Takes me back to the day the music died, in Santa Cruz anyway.

“Detrimental to both the health and morals of our youth and community."

One more sin to pin on the soul, brother.

The KYOS radio station management had to fire the brother Jumpin' Vernon Brown for using teminolgy (lingo, argot, slang) relating to intemperance, ahem, by using the familiar brotherly address for himself over the air--are you ready for this?

He felt he was our "stoned partner" in rock 'n' roll and life.

You could see the man in his radio studio, driving by on G St., hanging the slow cruise

Every boy must get stones thrown, no matter is he's stoned or not, just talkin' like a niggah back then gotcha the hook. 1964.

Banning rock n’ roll
is like banning rock ‘n roll
is like Banning rock ‘n’ roll,
which is basically the same
as Oakland's, even though there's no there, on the air.

It's all over in San Francisco,
the city made in the image of the tip of a penis
on the map of California.

Banning wins by virtue of being closer to the heart of Southern Cal rock climbing.

But the banned played on and we got real Southern Rock, even in Arkansas.

Tonight’s Dancing with the Stars was on mute.

I played I Know What I Know and the music’s beat was perfectly timed with the dancing and the combined musico-terpsichorean effect was MIND-BLOWING!

And to make matters more coincidental or MIND-BLOWING, the previous number on DWTS was Huey Lewis singing The Heart of Rock ‘n’ Roll and it was MIND-BLOWING in the way one of the best rock songs ever can BLOW YER MIND.

Zephyrus.
Zephyrus is the Greek god of the west wind, believed to live in a cave on Thrace. He is the son of Eos and Astraeus, the brother of Boreas, Eurus and Notus. He abducted the goddess Chloris and gave her dominion over flowers. In Roman myth, he is Favonius, the protector of flowers and plants.

Fearsome beak, Reilly.

Is that some kinky cadaver bird? (First time I've had my TV on in ten days. Watching Body of Proof.)

Ornithophobic, anyone? Any necrophobians?

That little dicky-bird on the creek was just hoppin' and nippin' and HE KICKED MY ASS trying to keep up!

Got downtown, sat on the bench in Bob Hart Square, looked up and there was the black one on the wind vane.
