I know he has a sister in Sonora and a btother in the area but I have no contact info. I know he has heart problems. If any of you are friends with him on FB, maybe see if his brother or sister can be contacted. I think his sister's name is Lena.

Hopefully he is on the road, blissfully untethered to the internet.

I know the green is always grassier on the other side of Merced, but you gotta stop playin' around and get back to business. Nothing ain't worth nothing, even if it's free.

Sometimes they are right when they issue flash flood warnings.

Recent heavy rains in Fish Creek show what happens when you don’t listen to the weather forecasts. Flash floods were predicted yet a father and son drove to Wind Caves to hike in the morning. Their truck was washed 1.75 miles down Split Mountain and the father and son were helicoptered out.

That little fisherman keeps popping up all aournd San Diego county.

Where oh where has our old mouse gone?

I'm a bit worried.


None of that Ultimate Chimney crap, m'kay?


Where are you mouse????


Don't end up like Burl!


I mean, we got our hair done and everything!


We dug, drilled and pumped the internets for information... nothing!


Out on the flats of Fresno? Nothing!


Down at the Mission? Nothing doing!


Stairway to heaven? I sure hope not!


Ah! I bet he's under a bridge?


Mouse where are you? I leave for a week and the whole world turns to shit!

A DENIER is a person with his head in the sand.

I do not deny that my head has been in the sand.

Therefore, I am still confused.

Did the blood rush to my head, causing me to black out, fall and not be able to rise?

No.

Did I go off on a toot?

No.

Did my internet funding cease?

Yes.

Am I back?

I was never there. How can I answer that? Do I look like a trichotomy?

To wit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trichotomy_(philosophy);

You kids have been awfully good since I have been away, if I was away.

What have you guys REALLY been up to?

Climbing? Nah, it's too wet.

So here's the Cranky Old Man, going on about his parenting style. He's Joe Bob Briggs's nicer side, ya ask me.

WHAT DID YOU DO TO HIM?

Perhaps the greatest validation a parent can receive is for his own children to emulate his parenting style. I recently observed my son copying one of my main parenting rules…never be a referee. Actually I did not realize this was my rule until my son reminded me.

One of the Crankettes came running to my son complaining that he was pushed and hit by his older sibling. My son’s response?

“What did you do to him?”

“Nothing.”

“Nothing?”

“I tookt his ball.”

“Give the ball back and stop fighting.”

The Crankette returned to his brother and they went on playing without incident.

My son then turned to me and said,

“I learned that from you, you know.”

“Learned what.”

“That the way to stop from being a referee is to always take the non-whiners side. You always did that. Mike and I learned quickly to never bring you into an argument. We settled our battles without you because you always asked, ‘What did you do to him’.”

“Really.”

“Oh yeah, one time Mike and I got into a fight when you and mom were out to dinner. He pushed me and just as you and mom came home, I punched him in the nose. His nose started to bleed. He didn’t have a chance to retaliate. He didn’t cry, but he was mad at me. He was mad at me because,

‘Now I’m going to be in trouble because dad is going to ask what did I do to make you punch me.’

Sure enough, you heard the ruckus, came upstairs, saw Mike’s bloody nose and yelled,

‘What did you do to make Matt punch you?’

Because you always assumed any battle was the result of retaliation from what the other must have done, we never bothered to bring you into our battles. I am using the same technique.”

I am so proud!
