MESSAGES

Saucer of rain
Box of secrets
Honky tonk men
Women at work

Rock on the water
Roll with the flow
Go and come around
Be here and now

All the stuff
You heard
As a teen-ager
Is true

Everything
THEY said
YOU needed to be
Is crap

Did your thing
Didnít do theirs
They done did it
They had their day

Been yourself
Didnít be them
Youíve just been you
Be glad itís true

Know yourself;
others;
them;
us.

Love likewise
if you ever again
have the chance.
I like to dream,
myself.

Remember the last words of that song, "You don't know what we been feelin'."

You won't know if you don't watch, "STupid." :0)

Nobody's stupid here: We here are all enlightened beyond normal, for our collective age and our collective climbing ability and gumption here around ST compared to other sites is simply beyond comparison.

WE are so hot!

Separately, not so much.

Reprise/Echo

On The Ph.A. thread, we heard this poem read by Sir Richard Burton. That's one version. I love G. M. H.'s poems, for the most part, and this version just reminds me of Max Headroom, whom you might recall from the Reagan/Bush era...

I tend to agree with that analysis, overall.

Amyjo and I had a similar take, or at least she suggested it then, and I agreed, on the birding trip out that direction, when we passed the same group on the road to Snelling and Merced Falls.

She didn't use the language, but had the same cynicism--no black men, and of course, women can't keep up with the gossiping!

I know the dentist.

There was an old "daffynishun" in the Boys' Life magazine in the fifties, of the word "climate," which said that it is what a Boy Scout does whenever he sees a ladder. I keep to that by climbing the windmills and pillars of graveyards.

This looks like an easy target for next time. I didn't even think of climbing this until I saw the picture with the decades of dirty hands wearing out the rocks on the shoulders of the chimney, I swear.

There is a perfect landing area, too, just a bit soft, with just the right amount of give. Of course, it's up to the faller to land right, as always.

I know, climb at your own dammed risk.

I changed my icon to a bird that is in service, the clean-up guys are always the last to get the praise.

That would be WBraun's job, and he's handled it so well, over the years, I can't say enough in praise of his tireless and brave commitment to covering for our stupid moves, the weather, and our piss-poor judgement and plain bad luck.

Just plain thanks doesn't seem enough, but zen he won't care, anyway, so I'll just leave this where the cat won't get it.

Duck quick - here he comes again.

Well, depending upon how you look at it, I have either returned to or from the oZone again. BethatasitMay, it is comforting to know that with little tune-up I can pass for homeless at the public library.

zb - do you have wireless?
msLibrarian - why yes we do.
zb - i lost my card, can I get a replacement?
msLibrarian - do you have any id?
zb - no, not with me.
msLibrarian - (after much painstaking research) i found you.
zb - that's good!
msLibrarian - you know it will cost you $3.00? (implying i didn't have it).


Surprise, surprise the homeless guy actually had three bucks, collected new card, receipt, and new found ability to access the internet wirelessly from the public library.

Too bad I forgot my notebook.



Will try to catch up, probably won't.


Neither will Duclk Dunn, bless his heart, but TIME IS TIGHT

Last U.S. performance.

What the HECK the FECK do I care about the HOLY BLUEBALLS HOLIDAYS, Black Friday and White Elf Mass (Middle Earth's holiest day)?

We can no longer wish folks Merry Christmas.

I was wondering, but would never ask, just how many wives were involved.

An inquiring mind is like a town without pity. Who knows what either can do.

However, little minds can tear you in two.

When you're masquerading as homeless, it feels just like a dusty road.



Kinda makes you wonder why Sam and Dave have 55K views on utube, whilst the Blues Brothers have over 8 million (actually over 12 million, but who is counting).

When you're homeless Mr. Jones won't even talk to you.

Sha la la la la la.




When I look at that teleVison, I wanna see me lookin' back at me.
