I love the part of this that lists the title in Portagee. See, Mr. Silva is of that descent. Whaddya make of that?


Bent minds think as one, on occasion.

The straight and narrow has too much mass appeal and is bad for us in the long run.

Nature runs no straight course, but meanders.

Thanks for that, Mr. zBrown.

First cousins once removed
Two people for whom a first cousin relationship is one generation removed.
The child of one's first cousin; also the first cousin of one's parent.

There. I have established what, in English-speaking countries, is my and Connie Jo Coonrod Marecich Chesnel __'s relationship.

We are first cousins, once removed, it appears.

It also appears, from Connie Chesnel's information on Facebook, that she is now living in Paris, and not in Sedona, AZ.

It may be, too, that she is no longer married to Pierre the Baker, from the Country Bakery.

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/60389/PIERRES-COUNTRY-BAKERY--A-SEARCH-FOR-PERFECT-FRENCH-BREAD---JUST-THE-WAY-HE-REMEMBERED-IT.html?p

Her FB page lists a marriage on March 27, 2013.

I sent a friend request. I hope she's friendly. This date, March 27, is the date of both my Nana's AND my Grandad's births.

Sister Lenna was coming to town that day for a picnic on their graves, but commitments to her grandkids will keep her in Sonora instead.

Driving back home, we noticed all the cows were moving slowly south. We saw nary one cow going in another direction.

UNTIL THE COWS COME HOME - Bruce Phillips once told me on a long drive from Irvine to Santa Monica that this was Dylan's working title for the Bringing it All Back Home album. I could not confirm this with Bob at the frisbee-a-thon since I was adamant about not acknowledging who he was.

So:

Cows are notoriously languid creatures and make their way home at their own unhurried pace. That's certainly the imagery behind 'till the cows come home' or 'until the cows come home', but the precise time and place of the coining of this colloquial phrase isn't known. It was certainly before 1829 though, and may well have been in Scotland. The phrase appeared in print in The Times in January that year, when the paper reported a suggestion of what the Duke of Wellington should do if he wanted to maintain a place as a minister in Peel's cabinet:


If the Duke will but do what he unquestionably can do, and propose a Catholic Bill with securities, he may be Minister, as they say in Scotland "until the cows come home."

December 10, 1965 - Dylan is reputed to have called out, just before Tom Thumb's Blues - "this goes out to zBrown out there in the cheap seats, sorry z, Albert said no more free tickets and passes".

Head out on the highway









//John Elwell wrote about this image of one [Tijuana/IB] Slough Rider (himself) & his Phaeton on the beach at Coronado: "The Phaetons were rare cars. The 32's were special. I heard only about 20,000 were built and not many are around. They are worth big bucks now. In California they were called 'Tubs'... two door covertible sedans. Mine was a 'hot rod'. Racing and dragging was in, in those days. I kept a sleeping bag in the back and my diving gear. This one was finally into a wreck in Mexico when a drunk Mexican rear-ended two cars at a road block and I got stabbed in the melee that followed. We had been racing all the way from Coronado, with pit stops in Cantina's in TJ and Ensenada. The wreck occurred about 2:30 AM after the Ensenada pit stop on the way to a lobster hole at 181 Kilometers, a fish camp called Erendida." ~ Photo & caption courtesy of John Elwell.//

EDIT: As I look at the photo more closely, that little man is not working in the technical sense because he is not being paid (not even royalties for this gratuitous use of his image). Next off, that sure does not appear to me to be Coronado Beach.

Was thinking of him just the other day. Met him a couple of times. We had old friends in common. All the way back to the Utah lefties and wobblies.
Even before Moose Turd Pie.

"He's good though".

Now I actually was working on that drive north with Utah Phillips, since I got paid by the University of California to do it. He had participated in a class at UCI. What a good man he was.




BTW, if ya gotta just mail it in, then be sure to use Jimi stamps*:





*DISCLAIMER: I get no royalties from Jimi's estate.

So that's why you're always refering to moose turd pie.

Definitey gonna load up on Jimi stamps. Thanks for the heads up.

Was fortunate to see Utah a number of times getting all Wobblie.

I was just looking back upstream. That Jasmine Stephenson is really pretty.

Maybe I'll send her a letter, in which case I'll definitely use the new Jimi stamps.






you might say:

a fantastic collection of stamps good enough to win friends and
influence Uncle Tom
