I don't think Big Mike'll buy that, not for a Canadian buck. F that A.

And no, that's not Barney's purple head lyin' on the pages of my non-scripted mind.

It is the beast, but that's my final daft or "clean" copy.

It still needs editing, though.

Nawmean?

The waiter brought another tray...with a wider shade of jail, off-width being like that, and...

...and he said, "No raison, monsure, for doing this insane unprotected merde.
See, there is an easy face to the right.
Ma tante and her poodle do it daily."

I left un pourbouire and we adjourned to catch the purple route to EC Parking Lot/Storage Facility.

AKA the "E" Route, six stops, including the Center of the Universe.

The driver was a climber formerly named Roger Murray and now he's known as Roger Safety Star.

It's a source of wonder that a guy from Oakhurst,
whose ancestor is buried in the Yosemite Cemetery
(his folks go BITD, I'd say),
and who lived the climbing life in the squalor of C4 (until he wised up, it seems)
would settle in as a safe, courteous, reliable and nice guy.

Nice to have met you, Roger.

Speaking of the Rev, who's never smoked, and who is barely tolerant of my habit but has learned to keep it to himself
(His wife Denny does, but she's not allowed to smoke in the house, so there.)

Speaking of Mathis, the Rev--

Smoking is a probable cause of depression, as I see it. I know first-hand that it causes unhappy thoughts. Enough about me and theory. It's putting it into practice that's hard.

Here's where faith comes in, that a higher power is willing to help in any small way.

I'm pretty useless against this vice
'n the Good Lord's help would be real nice.
But my own dad quit.
His last ciggy remained unlit.

The truth is I don't want to quit. The truth is I never listened to Boomer's advice as a young man, and as an older fool I listened but politely ignored it.

But it's ironic that in my everyday life I am a quitter in so many ways, even in ways of which I'm unaware.

My most amazing friend, zBrown, is well into this scene. I thank him for all his good offices, of which he may have no inkling, but which have been real to me.

You see what quitting booze will do for you.
And I mean it's a good thing, zeebster.
I love you, man!



I hope, too, I'll never tire or quit of you Tacos.

Suddenly sensing danger, the bear's eys changed in appearance, no longer soft. There was a gleam of hatred in them now that made Ron tremble. He knelt and propped the holy water pitcher on the huge trunk of the ash.

"That's the devil I'm talking to!" he thought. Taking a small sip of the water calmed him immediately. He reached into his pocket for the turkey baster.
Available wherever fine veggies are found, except for Khanom's Hopping Rabbit Farm.

So Gene is offering an alternative, MooseTroll.

The infamous Sonora Pass took place once in the sixties at a bed and breakfast near Twain-Harte.

It caters to film crews as part of its legacy. The photos adorn the walls, the good wishes from celebs abound, and the ambiance is pure-D grade-B western movie.

And Rock Hudson was in one room, Marilyn in another, adjoining.

I'm not saying anymore for fear of stepping on reputations.

But, seriously, the rest is history.

My wallet was in the red pack that was taken from the park last week.

I got to the Amtrak, found this out, calmed down, walked back over and called Gene from a neighbor's phone.

Well, I've been away soes I have some catchin' up to do, I will remark regarding your last post, that an expired driver's icense apparently is not deemed to be sufficient identification for the purchase of beer by a sixty-seven (going quickly on sixty-eight) year old man. The store is called Rite Aid.

Maybe I need to buy a passport photo. Eh?




Anyway, I was wondering what it would be like if ol' zBrown had gotten together with Sweet Georgia?

What to call the kids? Hint, not SweetPea?
