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.


Ron/Taxman? and I will be at Woodfest Sat/Sun, are you going to be in the area on Sun?. I was gunna drive home to RDG. Sun. afternoon, but if yer in the area I could delay my trip home to meet the Mouse.

I was wondering (again?) just who is the man behind the mouse. After some careful research, I discovered it must be this guy.

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.

hey there say, mouse... oh my, :O did not know you were in the hospital...

been busy catching up on house and yard cleaning... garden in, now.. mostly onions, carrots and beets, and a few tomatoes, being that perhaps i will have more garden success if the stuff can grow as fall crops too, seeing that we don't get much sun, :O

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


god bless, pray, and take care... hope you next little adventure that you posted of, will be very special!

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.

A 45-minute wait for the gate on Saturday on Hwy 120 at noon. Three kiosks, credit cards preferred, and enjoy your trip to Yosemite Valley. We have some high country, too, if yer interested...

I wish I could say the coppery-looking shots were taken with a telephoto lens, but it's best just to say it straight out:

I fought the law and walked away with nary a scratch.

Miss LEO and her radar-gunner said, "His 65th birthday was yesterday."

There was not an ounce of karma wasted and everything gonna be "O-tay!"

The lady and her husband on the bicycles are from Montreal, eh?

And there is the oh-so-nice telephoto shot of Tom's Thumb's summit, Hocking sahib.

After turning off at Craned Flat, I sat for ten minutes. Not one car came by. Everyone was going down to the 140 junction and then into Yosemite Valley. Good---fewer people to compete for the attention of the mosquitoes at the 8-9 thousand foot level.

Not exactly roaring, I 395ed to the correct place, confident that my co-pilot heeded my prayers to just allow me to do nothing and drive.

Bella cosa far niente.
"It is beautiful to do nothing."

Just listen to nothing on the Tioga-Pasadena expressway some day.

You should be so lucky.

Any body says Moosedrool's funny but no body believes any body, so WTF.

He is smart. He's not exactly handsome. But his heart and his wallet speak volumes. Mr. Andrew, I salute you. Enjoy the picture of the Valley View. It cost you $XX.xx, but it is magic from 1941, older than Donini, and worth every red cent, as they used to say in Poland.

mouse, correction; your photo labeled Mt Saint Helena is Saint John Mountain.
Nita and I were at the rd 68 overpass on Saturday. Must have just missed you. We'll be one mountain southwest of there next weekend; Snow Mountain Wilderness. We were one mountain north of there yesterday, off Alder Springs Rd. Cool country that hardly anyone visits. Glad you made it up to Tad's place and your birthplace and pigfest. Mouse is mobile!

The '35 Duesenberg Model SJ was owned by a friend's father, Ben Hudson, in purchased the car in 1947 for $1,500. It is pictured here with a stock 8 cylinder engine that produced 320 h.p. Mr. Hudson sold in in 1958 for $12,000.
In it's speed record setting configuration it looked like this: and had a 12 cylinder engine producing 400 h.p.
