All I recall
Of Frankie Laine personally
Is North Shore
Lake Tahoe 1950s
Had a "night club"
The folks, Boomer & Bobbye and Nana & Grandad,
Took the grandfolks' new Rambler Ambassador
To see and hear this lounge lizard.
They engaged a babysitter
who skeezed all winter
and played and sat
alternately
in the off-season.
She was named Betty.

Lane changes on the Flames occur randomly.

Drive carefully and watch the "speed limit."

There is none, sorry.

He carved a block out of a block and became an Errit Badger.
The most Merit Gadgets in four days is 49 hours.
And Scout's honor, I left my cell at home.
What's a kibo?

It's my pleasure to welcome you to what may well be the best experience of your week, and I'm so glad you could attend the campfire, sponsored by
Glad Sandwich Bags (baggies, man):
by The Cream Society of Merced;
and by Martha Stewart's Living the Dream, a feature-length commercial, coming soon.

I'm Mouse, a member of the Low-Rider Patrol, Campo Quatro.

As part of my Errit Badger* series of lectures on how to grow the heck up in Merced, here is my latest offering.

I am doing this series as a public service project to enhance the Taco and to earn my Eagle Scout badge.

A little background on old Errit Badger would be in order here. Errtit slipped on Michael's Ledge and had tied in with a slip knot. We all think it might have gone down to his being in the can that day the guys tipped the kibo, but Errit was a daisy and a huckleberry, too, so...

Enjoy this Grade A Class One Family Fun Film Today in Your Home, Free.

And take that stick,
that sacred stick
in your DVD player, zBrown,
Take that stick right out of here.

Who is Mount Baden-Powell's namesake?
Y is it 4-H and where's THEIR camp?
What did you guys think of Mirror Lake? Reflect on that during the hike back to camp.
Where is the other half of yur butt?
What is Scout Juice?


Oween Wilson, farts and all.
Campfires, capers, bugle calls.
Camp Rakhouta's kibo falls.
Everyone is growing balls.

Love of nature had its roots
Back in Scouting,, we had some hoots.
We were honest, reckless youths.
Clean and revern't to our boots.


We were headed to Campo Quatro,
The Flames Patrol of the FlameDragons Troop.
We were full of energy and cum
And also had to poop.

*For the ones who'd like to dim the Flames, the word "errit" is from Basque and means "rate." As in grade. As in Eagle grade, class, rate, rank. I know some things. Keep lookin' at me.

In the immortal words of JEREMY STOVER & KEITH (don't call me kBrown) BROWN

Don't let them take me to where streams are red.
I want to stay here and sleep in my own bed.
I got this thing, I've got to keep it sharp.
Don't go to places where it won't shine in the dark.



Rock & Ice Will Stand (hear those sax blowin' sharp as lightning?)

This was brought about by a missed communication, this Jonestown thing tonight,
JJthe rTist formerly known as rSin henceforth here to be known as JJ, or JJ the rTist.

"Hey!" said Carlow. "It fits. I'll wear it."

:0)

& comments appreciated now, because...you'll see: I been hearin' things.


JJ, the thing about Jonestown, simply don't try to keep up with history.

they lie (shh)

Cover-ups abound
Whirlybirds go round and round
Snooping here and blathering there
As if anyone would care
About TRUTH,
Who is indeed a sojuourner.

I was reading, or planning on reading I Chronicles, where I found this and some old memorial cards and thank you cards.

I generally read Bobbye's Ryrie study bible, the New American Standard Translation. It has leaves to find the books, but the print's kinda small, so I took up the other, the black one.

I began reading about Altamont, not Calvary.

Safer than Jonestown.

Safer than the front seat of the Rambler when I got crazy with matches out in the woods.

No, that was the blue Nash. Sorry.

Crazy Horses Lyrics
from I Can't Get There Without You

There's a message
--Floating
In the air
Crazy horses riding everywhere

It's a warning
It's in every tongue
Gotta stop them crazy
Horses on the run

What a show, there they go
Smoking up the sky, yeah
Crazy horses all got riders
And they're you and I

Crazy horses
Crazy horses

Never stop and they never die
They just keep on puffin
How they multiply

Crazy horses
Will they never halt
If they keep on moving
Then it's all our fault

What a show, there they go
Smoking up the sky, yeah
Crazy horses all got riders
And they're you and I

So take a good look around
See what they've done
What they've done
They've done, they've done
They've done, they've done
They've done, they've done

Crazy horses
Crazy horses
Crazy horses
Crazy horses

A. OSMOND/W. OSMOND/M. OSMOND


Hey, no matter what things happened at the Altamont Naked City or the JonesBonesTown site, we'll always have the music.
This was bootlegged, thank the fairie queen, or someone else...

And get a groove.
Sky smile.
Sky smile.

Switch gears, not Disraeli Gears. Just move on.
From Nashville. Keith's a devoted guitarist, BTW.

I'M EASY Keith Carradine (Nashville)

It's not my way to love you just when no one's looking.
It's not my way to take your hand if I'm not sure,
It's not my way to let you see what's going on inside of me,
When it's a love you'll not be needing, you're not free.

Please stop pulling at my sleeve if you're just playing,
If you'll not take the things you make me want to give,
I never cared too much for games and this one's driving me insane.
You're not half as free to wander as you claim.

I'm easy,
I'm easy.

Say the word, I'll play your game,
As though that's how it ought to be.

I'm easy.
Don't lead me on if there's nowhere for you to take me,
If loving you will have to be a sometime thing.
I can't put bars on my insides;
my love is something I can't hide
I still hurt when I recall the times I've tried.

I'm easy,
I'm easy.

Take my hand and pull me down.
I won't put up any fight, because I'm easy.
Don't do me favors, let me watch you from a distance,
Cause when you're near, it's hard for me to keep my head.
When your eyes throw light at mine, it's enough to change my mind
Make me leave my cautious ways and world behind.

I'm easy.
I'm easy.
