A Peloton of Pricks.

Three Accountants, two lawyers, at least one dentist, a Database Administrator and the rest are mostly Middle Management with one General Contractor in the mix to throw us off.

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.
"What a load," said Santa. "You never know what's gonna be on a list."

The elves know.

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.

Brother Tim called and said to get my young ass up to Jamestown.

He has turkey, access to the Grotto, and a plethora of smoke.

Time is of the essence.

Bye.
