Well, I'm looking for my face
And I got no place to go

I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more"
I said, "Oh no, doncha follow me no more"
Well, pick your own mind
And don't you touch mine no more

Still waiting here for a single idea
In your clothes and your hair, I wore it last year
Oh no, doncha follow me no more

I said, "Oh no, doncha copy me no more"

Well, all the clubs and the bars and the little red cars
Not knowing why, but trying to get high
Oh no, doncha follow me no more
Doncha follow, doncha follow


Oh no! Photo! No bow! Hey, doncha know that I'm the Dun Crow!

Carlow, didja select that based on the cat photo or based on the music? Or both?

Because either or any way, you can't be faulted.

The cat is blind, right? Is that that the gag?

Great keyboard. Tight.

Hit replay.

The bait is set before the fish in a completely natural way.

Is today officially Herr Braun Day? One picture 8 (or 10) words, depending on how you look at it, but nonetheless, it speaks for itself - no?

As Werner's name appears in 150 thread titles, he probably doesn't need to see more 'recognition' or receive more Jolly Good Fellow fellatio.

UN-officially, carry the hell on, pilgrim. And take Sgt. Rock along, as he don't take sh#t either, like WBraun.
He used to ramrod E and zCompany  both at the same time.  He is solid.

As far as recognition for SAR folks goes, the oldest recorded recognition of such took place on the Steve Allen Show sometime in the late fifties.

I must say here and now, that the quality of ST's reproduction of our photos sucks. If anything I have noticed in the last year plus I've been posting here, that's the one which has continuously bugged the crap out of me.


You got that right buddy!! Why do you think i post all mine from Flickr!

Here's why.


Merry Christmas good sir, from Sandra and I!

Say there say mouse, is that your Corvette?

Nice camera work there Big Mike. Can't help but observe that you squeezed a tower into the shot.

Anyway.
Dang! That sure looks like the Merced Tower up thread yonder.



Time passes slowly up there in the tower. Just ask Charlie Whitman.




EDIT: Just a side note, but if I hear one more TV person utter the phrase "went missing", I'm gonna dig Herr Whitman up and revive him and give him unlimted access to my VISA card to charge ammo to take these folks' transmission towers out.

Ah, neebee, the koalas are all down under the ground, not one survived.
The owners were so despondent over the situation they began drinking heavily and the koalas all escaped one night
and were slaughtered by Basque shepherds who made the best sausage you ever had.

Actually, the whole Koala Ranch thing is a big fib. I made that up. I needed a good caption. I must control that impulse. I'm sorry to have misled you.

What happens when the place is infested with fleas? Eucalyptus leaves; and soon, the fleas flee, too.

My grand-kids make me proud, and they make me laugh. Jake and Noah and the kids from their church. If you go on Youtube, there are a zillion just like this from last night alone!

On the first day of Christmas my pastor said to me, "We'll be Happy birthday, Jesus, number three-three-three-three-three."
Check out the little guy on this end of the choir. I believe that's ADD/HAPPYDANCE, and it makes me wonder, is that a sign of wonder, that God makes such people?

Why don't you take a picture? It lasts longer.

Famous words. Lasting. They get the point across like a photograph.

Concision. A normal-sized word of merit. Big words and lots of them are bunk.

The Big Picture. A black and white series of 1950s vintage dealing with the fight against Commies. I looked forward to the BIG picture each Saturday morning before cartoons, even.

Now I look back and the picture is so much larger.

Time has gone by like the wind past the wings in the Skytrain that Boomer flew.

The Porky Pig cartoons, the Rough Rider, Crusader Rabbit, howdy and goodbye, and thanks again, Uncle Walt, especially.

If streams were conscious they might not like the things that we put in them.

My streaming costs nothing. It is constant in my mind. I would that I could share it more readily.

But the fact is that you stream your stream. We all stream what we stream.

I want some egg cream. The whimsical connection is Lou Reed. This IS the secret underground Velvet Underground thread, is it knot?
