Could be the notorious Judge Dread. Just don't judge him by his shoes.

You can tell a lot about a climber by looking at his shoes.

Two feet. One left. One right.

Likes colors. Likes BRIGHT colors.

Knows a word or two of the french language. RD, PA, par example.

Can tie his overhand knots.

Probably does little aid.

Has a certain size of foot.

Climbs a little bit. Or they are new shoes. Or he just uses the hell out of the shoes, which is what I would hope.

And the cycle re-starts with homies picking up realty really cheap and then reaping the profits and so on so their kids can grow up big and strong and go climb and listen to Woody.

We are only human, all us bankers, payment-dodgers & itinerants.

Forgive us our debts.

Pray to God for the likes of the Plaidman, a very glad man, just about now.

This is for his efforts, the best;
Man, get that obsession off of your chest.

It was just a gopher, not mr musteLID.

Oh, I floated back into Merced from the canyon and culverts in that canyon of mercy.

Met a few folks again.

Missed some I knew who knew THOSE folks

And it was fueled by Mousish Drems of shooting Plaidman's Dream.

Way off the beam.
I left it too late.
Sorta finding a gate
That lead to an old meme

And then fulfilled with Plaidman's Dram,
An honor extreme
To have met him,
The Current Stud of the Merced.

Almost as soon as he debarked, MFM approached his homeboy for some "must" and got down with Pacifico (Clara)meant to go to Midpines and the bachelor Simpson brothers. I guess there's 3 of 'em living there at Bear Creek...

I know of 2, Isaac and Jeremiah. Talking to Robbie Nelson, there's at least 3, Devin's the other brother. Don't know him.

Their cat's cute. Their place is about what you'd expect.

Targets.

Brush.

Projects, either finished (!)--diminished (2)--or un-finished (lots).

They were all born in Mariposa County. They live the outlaw lifestyle and play good music and spread good vibes.

They weren't at home.

I left a little gift.

I did meet the landlady, LuAnn, and HER dog, Bear, who has adopted her.

Weird how that works.

He was Isaac's dog 2 months back. Isaac was almost ready to move, kind of in between, so Bear decided he liked LuAnn better than the Simpsons...with

That Midnight CAT
Hangin' round,
Hangin' round...

Quarter-a-mile away
Bear found a way
To make his way
Closer to,
Closer to
Yosemite
Highway!

He's otay.

Not a stray.

"Go east, young Al. Go west, young guy,
Wither you will, but don't ask me why."

The river's whisk took me to the bottom and look what turned on up.

I never come down.

I'm stumped on the tree removal question.

Is it okay to have loved climbing so much that we lost that tree? Apparently some feel it is okay, but it's split milk, ex post facto, get a grip and try to keep it from happening again.

The trundling fools (whom you'll recall "trundled" their prize all of three feet) are worse by one degree, I feel. No real good or bad was accomplished, it was just superstupid, even to film it, watch it, or worry about it as much as we seemed to have worried about it by talking about it.

"Modern Gonzo" is a real good example of how to screw your video up. My advice is to shoot much less of yourself and more of the scene because most viewers don't care about your mug or most of your stupid comments!

It's a "nice" place, if you like "plain food."

The cook's name is Chiloe and he is a marvelous whistler, kind of like the Mono wind; and Nicely's is year-round dependable, like the Mono wind.

There are neither fish tacos nor Mono Cone chili dogs in November.
