Four tee tude.

A soupcon of attitude.

Buds, let's not be too crude.

Several ladies are present.

A lady whose folks moved to Planada in 1928, for example. She has dogs. Her companion has dogs. They love dogs and rescue the little dogs. They laff about how little they eat. They laugh about how little they two eat, too.

They are so broke, they need St. Vincent's thrifty ways, so they certainly shop there.

I got some wine glasses there last year.
One broke when I packed it up when the roaches got sprayed, and I didn't know.
I nearly cut my hand on the thing, two nights ago, whist shifting things around,
looking for something else in that basket of kitchen items.

I was being protected, I believe, from a partial faux stigmata.

Wonderful book, Misfortune, by Wesley Stace. There is a (dead) sister of the protagonist named Dolores. He spend his time inside a doll house conversing and playing with her shade. She fell to her death from a tree while they contemplated the clouds in the high branches. She was only five. She is AKA Anonymous(e).

Complications abound: He is in need of an heir, apparently, to satisfy his mum, who is not mum, just lays in bed and cannot move her limbs, waiting for him to regenerate the Loveall; Pharaoh delivers and manages to escape to live another day. The tyke is supposedly a he, but really a she. How can a she inherit in the early eighteenth century under British law?

I'm just now getting into it. It's like candy. A chapter a day keeps the Doctor away. It's very funny in parts, and full of lore about the richest folk in Great Britain (not very nice), as well as the poorest (some nice, like some mice). Very like Dickens.

That said, it's a beautiful day. I'm takin' it to the streets.

Big fifty year high school reunion coming up in September. There's a website and all. So this is a duplicate post I guess.

Original Merced Criterium.

http://www.ncnca.org/ncncaevent/original-merced-criterium-2

Begins early, is a closed-circuit loop of downtown and Courthouse Park.

Come have your picture taken and watch the thing.
I think I might set up on the top level of the parking arcade between Eighteenth and Nineteenth to see the Starting Line/Finish Line from on high instead of street level.
I'll be at the corner of M Street and 19th Street.

It ALL starts here, in downtown Merced.

It would be diverting and it's going to be a nice day, too.

My all time favorite movie on bike racing is Breaking Away, naturally.

How does stuff get from here to there. Part 1. O-Tay!

The Dulzura Conduit is a 13-mile-long aqueduct beginning at Lake Barrett, mostly concrete-lined but partly flumes, pipelines, and tunnels. Passing through remote and rugged terrain the Conduit diverts water west to Dulzura Creek leading to the Otay River. The water then flows through the river channel into the Lower Otay Reservoir.

Yeah but that's like the chicken without the egg isn't it? O-Tay{2}!!

Morena Reservoir is located in East County about 45 miles from San Diego, near Campo. Water released from Morena flows down Hauser Canyon and into Barrett Reservoir.

Yeah, but from whence the water in Morena? O-Tay{∞}!{∞}

Listen up. A flow chart from a Cal-grad of flumes on The Flames.

He secretly belonged to the fraternity Sigma Otay Sigma.

At their secret UNDERBROWNED meetings, he sat in the very front row, went with the flow, dontcha know?

I heard that via the Grapevine.

I remember it well, because we were listening to Twine Time at the time.


I know this great song from the only day I ever played (seriously) hookie from dear old MHS in 1966. Mickey Padilla and I hopped into his Karman-Ghia and went to the pool hall, then located across from the Merced Theater on The Main Drag. I played this several times in between racking the balls.

I could not beat the Mick, try as I would. He is the one who informed my mom that she was "Mrs. Mouse," because he had just met me on that day in 1961, a day after my nickname had been installed.

Cambridge, St. John's College, 1940.

The True Last Bastion of Civility and Culture.

Following the February, 1942, capture of Singapore, I think things got less idyllic for many of these gents and ladies.

I would love to see comments from General S.P.R. Taco.

And the Japs thought they had it going on with their bowing and the tea serving routine--I guess we showed them.
