Cortez was a killer, no?

Don't tell me he's been beatified. If that big dumb blonde with her wheel in the gorge ever gets nominated I'll self-ex-communicate straightaway.

Funny thing, I didn't dream I saw St. Augustine last night, but I did dream I got a brand new trumpet with a really sophisticated mouthpiece, so with no further ado, here's Harry's mom and her posse.

I know I said no further, but (no offense to Willie Waldman intended)I have to observe that I do not sweat profusely when trumpeting. Likely excuse here is the bright lights of the big city and lack of rehearsal time.

Everybody went down to that million dollar bash, yet only the Dude's dad came back up*. Happy hunting. Like a Bridges rising out of troubled water it seems.


*Maybe not factually correct, but fair use under The Flames Literary License to Kill. We do know for sure that Captain Ahab came back up a couple of times, but he eventually went down for the count.

While it may be safe to get back in the water, don't drink it.

But that is not how the broom of history swept

I hope I do ten times over before it is the Via Ferrata it can and maybe should be.

By placing this in quotes, I wash my hands of any responsibilty for the veracity of any of it's assertions, becoming thus just another fellow traveler on the waters of oblivion.


The book Emerging Infectious Diseases: Trends and Issues cites the 1984 Rajneeshee bioterror attack, along with the Aum Shinrikyo group's attempts to use anthrax and other agents, as exceptions to the belief "that only foreign-state supported groups have the resources to execute a credible bioterrorism event".[58] According to Deadly Cultures: Biological Weapons Since 1945, these are the only two confirmed uses of biological weapons for terrorist purposes to harm humans.[5] The incident was the single largest bioterrorist attack in United States history.[3][59][60] In the chapter titled: "Influencing An Election: America's First Modern Bioterrorist Attack" in his 2006 book Terrorism on American Soil: A Concise History of Plots and Perpetrators from the Famous to the Forgotten, author Joseph T. McCann concludes: "In every respect, the salmonella poisoning carried out by the cult members was a major bioterrorist attack that fortunately failed to achieve its ultimate goal and resulted in no fatalities."[19]

Hell of a way to make it to the top ten, but ..,. she did make it

As a result of a follow-up investigation, The Oregonian learned that Leslie L. Zaitz, one of their investigative journalists, had been placed as number three on a top-ten hit list by Sheela's group.[14]

When I first came to town I was fascinated photographicaly[Click to View YouTube Video] By decrepit properties.
[Click to View YouTube Video]
Homes that had sprouted trees in parlors and had vines for roofs.
[Click to View YouTube Video]
Being new to town and not wanting to draw attention to myself,

I have not taken the pictures.

Pictures of falling up homes and boarded up shops.

So again, thanx for letting me get to see

the things in my minds eye

if I only knew where to look

a small wish, you know, that this type of a 'fantasy movie' as, in reality,
it seems never to happen, :(
WOULD happen in many nice helpful ways, for all the everyday folks,
trying to live and work and provide for their families in life...

:)

maybe 'odd' is rooting for me, :)

^^^Richard Carlson was the name of my roommate in the old employee housing tents down by Leidig Meadow near where the maids' dormitory was located, just across Northside Drive from Camp 4.

He bears a resemblance to Harry Morgan, from Dragnet and MASH.

Harry Morgan and Frank Morgan are no relation, as these are stage names.

Frank Morgan played the humbug wizard in Wizard of Oz. (Talk about yer FANTASY!)

So don't feel all alone, Gnome.

Your appreciation ratio is climbing and my heart soars like the hawk.

I wonder what's in store for half-time snackage at Reinero's.

It's Super Sunday.

No rest, though.

Engage those prayer wheels for rSin, who is despondent and hurting.

Be kind amid all the violence and turmoil.

Stanley Morgan was once a wide receiver for the Patriots. Stan the cow pony has it from the Clydesdales...take the Hawks.

He is rooting for the Pats.

Fierce or fast?

In the winter of 1971, I chose to return to Yosemite Valley. I wanted to work and live in the dorms; but no jobs were available at the time. So Skeet showed me a talus slope cave above Camp 4 where I could live. I slept there sometimes but mostly I preferred to sleep in the meadow by the river or up on the valley rim. I got to be friends with the women who lived in the apartment at Degnanís dormsóSheila, Molly, Mary Lou and Terry. One night they invited me to a spaghetti dinner. Terry and I had just come back from backpacking in the little Yosemite. Randy who was a friend of Mary Louís was there too. He was living at June Lake at the time and working as a ski lift operator. We got to chatting and about ten p.m. that night we walked out the door together and stayed together almost 24/7 until he died April 1, 1983.

Gypsy, you have probably said someplace, but who was the lucky one to whom you sold Toad Hall when the time came?

I remember the Dwight Way apartment across from Herrick Hospital.

When Dolores and I had moved in with you two we bought that uncomfortable hide-a-bed sofa and you two took the closet with the double doors.
I always envied you two, snugly tucked in there in the dark--it was like a tent or small cave in there.
And the used bookshops up on Shattuck.
And sidereal time out back in the parking area.
And kites on the ridge top.
And Larry Jones showing up with us at first and finding the St. George's home for disturbed teenagers on Arch Street which led him to meet his Barb (RIP).
And enchilada feasts.
And drying long hair over the floor vent because no one had hair dryers then.
And occasional bouldering sessions at IR and Cragmont--we actually completed a route there!

Those were the days, my friend, we thought they'd never end.

The sunglasses on young Downhill Randy appear to be slightly on the feminine side, like the ones I had from Dolores only more fifties than seventies.

Now earlier I pointed Out that In some way This drinking Is new for mwa

Not that I had to stop, or ever had a problem,

So I stopped for more than a decade and missed the craft beer revolution.

Now your memory is leaving you Mouse. Randy and I slept on the double bed in the living room. You and Dolores had a mattress in the kitchen. There was no hide-a bed when we lived there. Lee Bibby (now Lee Lalone) slept in the closet. We never did.

But I do remember cooking a Thanksgiving dinner there. And George Sykes and Claire (?) came to eat with us. And someone found a rather tiny bedraggled tree drying out in an alley and brought it home and I made paper chains to decorate it. We did have a fire place and that wacky chandelier with blue and red bulbs that kept coming on and off at the weirdest times. I loved that floor vent.

And I worked in the Medical Records department at Herrick Hospital so my commute was walking across the street. Randy had to walk to the North Face on Telegraph Avenue. I usually got off work first, walked to North Face and then we would walk to Indian Rock.

I don't remember who bought Toad Hall. We sold it when we were living in Aptos and Ariel was about two or three years old--1978 or 79.

When Randy and I moved in, the former tenant was moving out. She was going to Europe and asked us if it was okay if she just left everything there as it had been left there when she moved in. We said "Sure" as the only things we owned fit into our Kelty frame packs and we didn't have any furniture. There was a great radio console in the living room that had speakers in the kitchen. We listened to KPFA all the time when we were home. There was all kinds of construction paper and crayons left behind too and I gave them to the little girl in the upstairs apartment. "My name is Sibhoan," she said. "It's Irish". And that dumbwaiter that was closed up.
