Remind me to ask Fred what his bottom ten list is. I've hung out with at least three people on that top 10 list and it makes me suspect a certain bias but he seems to know everybody. Make that 4, if you count my brief chat with Ram Das at the Rainbow Gathering, 1979, White Mts, AZ.

I'm very bummed I missed the Snowy Owl irruption. Some of my best bird times have been in the New York city limits.

I had to console myself with this today, after a very short work day.

Dyslexic dude show up a toga party dressed as a goat?

Anhywaty, there is good news, Licky has commenced work on a book about the Mayonaise missing airplane.

I don't know much about talking with celebrities, but Michele was once told by Nancy Reagans' secret service agent that "Mrs. Reagan does not speak to servants". WWTTFF?

The Process is ongoing.

Scientific methodology is the new religion.

LIKE IT OR NOT!

But, "Why; Why; Why?"

Stay tuned in, suckers, I mean seekers.

The truth is WAY out there,
yet closer than we can know.

"The wide way you seek is higher than you can possibly imagine, sister.
I say go this way: take a left at the second star,
then follow the bull straight through to morning.
You'll get to the base of Peter Pan a lot faster than walking.
And, no, I don't know about any plane crash. Sorry."

Dear Readers,

We have settled on the Working Title of of zBrown's memoirs, now nearing the conclusion of its third draft:

Noontime on the Beaches of North and South Bay.
Bolt, Mineheart, Point Richmond Publishing Co.

I predict a bit more than 20 weeks on the Times Bestseller List, topping out at #9 or #10.

No literary prizes will be collected, though it's likely to be on several long lists for literary rewards--the Ban Looker, the Quicky Licky, Braun Brown, and the No Bull prizes, I'm thinking.

Pre-order your copy today. Subscriptions are available thru my email, so PM me and send cash, check, money order, or wait till my Pay-Pal account is set up. Ten dollars and fifty cents per order.

Hey, it's already on the bargain cart, manner of speaking.

Who sez surfers can't write as well as climbers?

Tami, we understand your unwillingness to be the illustrator, and Throwpie, we know you have serious other commitments.

Lollie was too busy, as well.

When the tough get going, we rule. We have done it ourselves and are rather proud of the results.

We are still interested in a bomber cover photo, however.

And Tom Wolfe's still negotiating for the introduction, but I am not sanguine about this.

Chouinard, well, he's just not a South Bay guy, though he thought he was qualified. Besides, he wouldn't pony up for any pre-orders himself, so...

You know, put zBrown's head on Slim and switch Slim to goofy foot with an insert of Richie Valens right below "Hi There". Gotta cater to the entire audience if you know what I mean. La Bamba, SA.

Did he die in a plane crash of a plane full of dope? Doncha tell Waylon.




*No need for Lollygagging around with Tami and the Bachelor with Locker onboard. Notice who just moved back to Southern California. Baby you can shine my shoes, yes I'm gonna sing the bluz.
