REAL PEOPLE HERE.

Fakes here.

Saturday, August 24, 120 volunteers from three local Merced Credit Unions bussed to Camp Green Meadows outside the Wawona entrance to Yosemite.

Their purpose was to paint, clean, and rebuild at the camp, which serves as a recreation camp in summer and is an outdoor school operated by the Merced County Office of Education the rest of the year, seving students from throughout California in one-day and week-long classes.

The camp celebrates its 50th year next year; I was a counselor there for a week in 1965, its second year of operation; and I was a senior in Merced High then.

These volunteers were from EECU, MSEFCU and Merco Credit Union, which is the biggest sponsor of the series of races in March here in town and out in Snelling. The list of tasks: painting picnic tables and splitting stackin firewood, rebuilding the archery range backstop, and constructing a retaining wall and much more.

CEOs talk pretty much the same, "The common thread...and blah-blah-blah...community project....win-win situation...yak-yak-yak...credit unions support...working together...spirit of people helping people.”

It was a Face-lifting, is what it was.

It’s good to know the school’s lasted this long and has the continued support of the community’s credit unions, two of which got business from Liz and myself--auto loan and checking account.

Camp Green Meadows is on Facebook, like.

So how about those Giants, kids. Champions one year, cellar the next.

I blame it on the Rim Fire and the drought.

Wait till next year, when we moitalize 'em.

Word of the month potential there.


I heard a really funny two-part joke about male and female Rice Krispies and now I cannot recall the story, much less the punch lines.

The priest at Notre Dame and the dead bell-ringer, though, I'm still laughing. "His face rings a bell!" Sheesh!

The pastor should have interviewed a disabled Sumo wrestler for the bell-ringer's gig...

"I had heavy misgivings about that missing leg after we ascended the tower. I had no way of knowing he was epileptic, too. I don't speak Japanese so well."

Which only deepens the question, "Why does everybody hate Christianity so much?"

Getting back to the Romans. If you do as the Romans do in Rome, then when not in Rome, as the Romans don't do. This seems to leave a very wide latitude in behavioral options.

I wonder how many of these shirts are still available.

That LOOKS like band length.

The Merced HS Marching 100 was nearly 4/5 of a mile long lying down stretched out and with their respective instruments between each student.

There are two more high schools, make that three--I forgot the newest, El Capitan Redux--in tne area and the size of the Marching 100 has dwindled considerably. At one time in the seventies, the student population of Merced High was the largest in the STate. BELIEVE IT OR NOT.

Of course they included the baton twirlers. Not sure about the letter-carriers, but likely.

Ellll Cap! Yay!

What's the prize for fifth place in the US twirling competition? You lose your first joint of the non-twirling hand's thumb. It's hard-core at the national level, man. You don't want to hear about fourth place finishers, many of whom turn to orb-searching, for some reason, when their careers end so abruptly.

Most races employ longer batons than we are accustomed to in the USA and Canada.

Next up from The Gym Coach, Noah Fingers: Rhythmic Ribbons, Salsa Style.


Instructions on how to measure for a twirling baton.

1. Find a tape measure. Common tape measures used in sewing or dress making will suffice.

2. Have the twirler stand in front of you. Tell her to extend one arm. The arm should be parallel to the floor. When at the right position, her arm and body should form a 90-degree angle.

3. Place the tape measure at the base of the twirler's neck. Tell her to hold the tape measure while you unroll the tape measure down to the end of her middle finger. Note the measurement in inches and write it down.

4. Visit a store that sells batons. Try sporting goods or specialty stores to find a wide range of baton brands from which to choose. A wide selection can help you pick a quality baton.

5. Use the measurement to select a baton of the same size. Batons are available in inch-lengths* and should correspond to your measurement. Choose a baton that is one size above your measurement if you find that the measurement falls between the standard baton inch-lengths.

6. Purchase the baton.**

*There are places to acquire batons which are made in half-inch increments, so don't believe EVERY little thing Coach Fingers says.

**But only if you want to. no pressure. You can go back to your piccolo and twirl that, too. It's a specialty of the Marching 45's wind section, all seven or eight of them. And preferably from a dealer in Baton Rouge, LA, home of the Red STick Ale brewing company, if you can afford the postage.

This is slightly more relevant than the My Pretty Pony thread, wouldn't you agree?

Battin' cleanup, Baton Rouge! As long as it tastes and looks good and doesn't leave a red stain on your hands, it's ok buy me. On the other hand, could be a badge of courage.
