I simply took the sign that said Hardin Flat Road on the left coming out of the Park, then ditched onto a paved Forest Service numbered road. Clockwise semi-panorama in a foothill river valley.

After "turning around and going back down, down the way I came from" (QSM Pride of Mice),
I followed the road from old I knowed would take me to Sunset Inn.

Mouse and Lauren Nickell (at the same time, simultaneous-like):
"Where's a man" "It's not"
"bound to find" "a guest at all."
"a good meal" "It's just"
"hereabouts?" "Mouse."

I took no photos, had a fast Fat Tire with Bill, said hello to the kids, wished them a happy Mothers' Day meal at the Evergreen Lodge, and exited stage pronto.

Back out on the highway, looking for no more adventure, just a place to lay my head.

I'm stalled. I cannot load pictures to ST. I'm taking a break and going to visit the bank for some real world problems, the Banco de Mexico across the street, aka Banquo of America

I must be feeling suicidal.

SLACK!

This is me standing forlorn and feeling safer than poor Jeff, who was about this time trying to yell at Millis for some slack.

But the wind blew his words forwards, then it blew them backwards and Mousewards and air-words, just not towards Millis, around the corner in a slung belay.

Jeff was is dire straits; he could not go forwards and could not go back.

He was on the sloping summit, just out of his aid slings! He hadn't used any long runners to lessen rope-effing-drag, a new phenomenon introduced in the worst possible place.

I saved his miserable butt (Love ya, Jefe!) by intervening with the ignorantly blissful Millis.

Soooo lucky, we were.

Like I told Amy, Bill and Lauren's daughter, a waitress in a Groveland bistro (!?), the forks were with us that day.

Back on the road the road the road the road the road...

I can't help deepening affection for the lowly adjunct to many road photos, the humble fencepost. Some of what I know of them, first-hand second-hand knowledge from former alkies is what it is, repeated here again:
Many bent fencepost nails around the planet are revered by reforming alcoholics who shall remain anonymously reverent while talking six-penny slang like downing a six-pack and driving home the point that Higher Beings exist, the Force exists, and Nirvana is out there, too. Just not at the bottom of a bottle.

Yes, I am one. Yes, I scare myself in my reddish chariot of flame.

Ora pro me.

And I may pray for thee.

I have a fencepost near Chinese Camp I go to.

I'm wondering why this no longer works when it used to.

It does seem to work if you click on it, but not when embedded.

Now it's working again. It was easier just having to wonder who wrote the book of love.

Oh well, I'm walking down the line with Johnny Elephant, not because I'm an early riser, I didn't go to sleep last night.

THocking thinking of me.

My two trips to Yosemite, one to visit Jim D and then another to visit the Rev, and then on Wednesday afternoon...

blood clot in the lung, straight to ER, do not piss out of the urinal, Mr. B., we need the pee to see how your sodium retention level is, please let me scan your wristband before I collect this blood sample, here's your med, no, we never let you sleep, you putz.

This is what I get for not renewing my Rx for Warfarin, the RAT POISON.

Second time around, last time the clot was in the heart three around Christmas of 2011, same cause.

At any heart rate, the Mouse is climbing stairs and down to 177 #.



Let my condolence flow to all who suffered from the climbing accidents on the West coast.

I haven't been following the ST, but wonder if Donini and George Lowe got up the NIAD, plan on it soon, or WTF?

Cheers, Pentecost was a beautiful day for me, in spite of being hospitalized.

I need sleep desperately, a joint and a shave--no more free razors in the healing centers--but will do them in reverse.

Ora pro me, and I shall pray for y'all.

Cheers, but I've stopped drinking.

Glad to hear that you're more or less OK. I figured you and Donini went off on some kind of music listening jag and got thrown into Camp 14 (this is different from Camp 4).

I'm happy I don't have to come and get you two out.

If you need any blood, let me know. I'm a very good blood donor.

Take care of yourself. I know you're still the man you used to be, but just a bit older.

Mouse,
I had a strange feeling that something might not be right in Middle Earth,
I mean after the events at Tahquitz and Muir Wall, when the Flames thread
dropped to page 4 I knew sumthin was no bueno.

Sorry to hear of your recent health scare and glad your back home and hopefully "feelin alright"
Remember that Traffic song penned by Dave Mason?

How many days in the Hospital?
Are ya back on the Rat Poison?
Anything we can do for ya?

Anyway get some rest and feel better,
Tad

Instead, blinding sheet.

Tay, Hockwad!!

I'm heading for Lenna's in Gladdenfields, I mean Sonora.

It's Bob's Birthday again, can you believe it.

That's Saturday the 24th.

And then we'll go see Mr. Hyong-duck's presentation in the cavern in the canyon.

Number nine.

I am Warfarining, ya Smeagol.

My little sis knows nothing of my illness, just cuz I lost my phone list here in the empty EMT madness of "Hey, what'll we do to this guy's room? Stash that here, put some old food out for the roaches, too."

All I know is that she'll be cooking steak on Saturday. the Rev and I were getting together this last Saturday, but nope. So I'll ask him and his tiny dancer up and my brother Tim, and since Mike the Grave is fishing in Maine, my sister-in-law, as well, but she'll decline: "Oh, honey, thanks, but..."

And Lenna and Ed will be quite enough. Tim never drinks, Lenna likes to fish and can drink like a fish, too, so I have one very supportive bottle of vino for her. It's white, but she'll manage it with a steak, pretty confident.

I have discovered the Coors Non-Alcoholic brew, and it's decenter than OD's, which is roach pee, mostly.

I have the itch for NeeVada and Carson City to seek the whereabouts of an old mouse friend, Jim Livermore and then will point it to Mound City to see the Taxman, if he will send his phone, if he will point the way, I will not delay.

And ideally, the Far Niente, the Red Incarniente, will point towards the northern part of 395 and cross over Beckwourth and photograph low Sierra Nevada, not NeeVada, lowlifes crossing the Sierra Nevada a second time, as I've only driven it once in the seventies. Perhaps a night of waning moon, mon.

In a two-holer in some Anderson dive.

STay alive, I'm going climbing with you, Old Thunderbox.

Another leaf from Sixty Minutes last nite, zBrown.

Dingus style.

Guy can tell a story.

Needs some good instruction in adding MUSIC THAT FITS HIS DISTINGUISHED STYLE.

Running from bees, climbing nekkid, flying high.

A Great among the Cheap. And we are cheap talk experts on the Taco.

But DMT walks the talk, talks not sh#t, and loves his rocks, so he's a role model waiting to roll when & where the whim goes.

Me so horny! Need woodfeasting, mood boosting, BDay celebrating.

I can leave the Sonora bivvy, crampon over to the 395 and follow my nose to Mood Woody.

Ah, Telly...woody man, savant, and suck-up to Hef, George, and George's brother, the Great Liberace.

Telly the Spare Hair is just allright with me.

Bro George, not Boy George.

Vood Vests are best by gov't test.

Where do I go? I'll find out on the Internet!

Hang around, Thunderbox, and the TaxMan.
I got lotsa sh#t in the PA can!

Hey, it's not Mickey's vault he was molested as a drop of ink. That whole "Dad" thing is just Disney.

so i been in and out of supertopo very fast... saw the serious posts, so went there first and did not get to the neat history posts here... or the neat daily-reporter on the street stuff, ... though now, i see the daily-reporter was OFF the steets... :O

I just got off the phone with my sister Lenna Louise, and she's got shrt rbs from S. Kor., I have rib steaks from this critter I met this morning, and I also have some sweet broccoli salad for the BDay dinner.
I kept the conversation brief.

Then I called the Rev. He's expecting me and maybe Skip on his dirt bike following me to the holy precincts of Man's and Ita Way in Greeley Hill.

He was talkin' sh#t about "heading up to the T. Pass" but had forgot it were gonna be the big weekend. We're hiding out at his place, so sorry.

I was wondering what the tree looked like behind the man who was behind Brian Wilson. After some careful research I determined that it was this guy and the tree looked just like this (or similar).

Wilson Brothers banned

Who was behind the Everly Brothers? I do not know, but I will look in to it. I do have a good idea who was in front of them.







Everybody’s wearing a disguise
To hide what they’ve got left behind their eyes
But me, I can’t cover what I am
Wherever the children go I’ll follow them
