That Craftsman driver page is cool, if you mouse over (don't confuse with over-mousing) a portion of the small picture it gives you a super-enlarged close up.

I was wondering, why the ST Forum doesn't have that feature.

In San Diego, in surfing and I suppose in general there are some written rules and some unwritten ones. This appears to be an attempt at a written one.

I think that is Robert the Bruce on top of that turret, probably looking for his cat or maybe Katmandu.

There's usually a point at which I am aiming, more or less, though I tend to ramble like a little kid in Family Circus, sometimes.

Point A.
I bought this paper at the Coffee Bandits. I came back to the Tioga, watched some NCAA, went down to the street expecting to get some photos of the renters' discussion with the media, which did not happen, and fell into hog heaven when I went in to Merced Tours to speak with Jessica and her husband, Jay, who is in the photo above with his black and white aerial candy.

As the rent committee left, I began shooting and questioning. They have this new business, Merced Tours (c'est tres Nice et interessant). It will have a small museum of Merced and the environs, i.e., Yosemite.

I then went to the bistro and came home to find the paper and read the article on the Greek colony in Merced. My older brother's two wives are Greek, just HAPPEN to be cousins...

Anyway, on the way home from the bistro, I had stopped and taken a picture of 519 Main St., an address on the ground floor of the Merced Lofts acrosse from the bistro and the bookstore where I worked. I was thinking of climbing ratings, naturally, in taking the pic.

I got into the article and the line jumps out at me

Instead of returning to greece, Peter came to Merced in March 1921 and started a shoe shine and repair business at 519 W. 17th St. (Main).

Well, I'm not one, well, I guess I am, at that, who goes and thinks God's tapping him on the shoulder, making him wonder, causing him to do foolish things. I tend to look at these things differently now that I'm older and have read some feralfae Buchanan--HAW!

I checked out yer posts, I just can't think of anything better than what you have said. You do cause me to think. Looking forward to your success(es), and failures, and recoups. Bonne chance.

As I was saying, this is just coincidence, it don't mean shee-it, as Mr. Natural say.

Then, I looked underneath the article on the Greek colony at the bottom of the page.
This is point zB.

I really don't drink much Guinness in the yard. Nothing like Java for yardwork prep.

Michele was a math teacher and hard worker. Sometimes I only have to supervise. Unless of course, it's termites, then I'm up in arms (well axes actually).

It's a thing I keep in the back of my head.

Walkin' like a millionaire
Smilin' like a king
He leaned his shopping cart against the wall
He said, I been a lot of places
And I seen a lot of things
But, sonny, I seen one thing that beats 'em all
I was flyin' back from lubbock
I saw jesus on the plane
...or maybe it was elvis
You know, they kinda look the same
Hey, look out, junior, you're steppin' on my bed
I said, I don't see nothin
He just glared at me and said,

If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
If dirt were dollars
I wouldn't worry anymore
