I was out one morning breathing the air around Tom Paine and this thing showed up. Any beta, alpha, and/or scuttle-butt on just what this thang is for?

zB, I had a raccoon come to the house yesterday. Right up to the patio, catering away, after some carrot bits I'd put out for the rabbits. The raccoon and I exchanged greetings and he commented on his extended range now that things are a bit warmer around here.

So we have raccoons and foxes, skunks and jackrabbits around here. But no buffalo.

Be cool,

Hiya ff

I've only encountered one fellow who had a pet 'coon'.

In South Laguna beach. That animal definitely had a mind of it's own and I don't think his 'caregiver' ever changed it, but it's like so many things in Ancient History, ya just never know and probably never will.

Anyway, and this is the truth even if it never happened, Rocky (was that his name) couldn't surf a lick.

In 1959, an extremely valuable, 60-year-old Senegal date palm was left to the Zoo from the Henry B. Clark estate in Ocean Beach.
The Zoo staff was thrilled, especially the Horticulture Department.
Now they had to get it from Ocean Beach to the Zoo--
no easy task, since the multi-trunked tree (15 trunks) weighed some 26 tons and was 40 feet wide.

The only other outfit to bid on the move.

In 1932, the San Diego Zoo almost closed!
The San Diego County Assessor, trying to obtain funds for a city struggling during the Depression, announced that the San Diego Zoo owed more than $6,000 in back taxes on the property and holdings.
But the assessor hadnít done his homework: the Zoological Society leased the property from the city and did not own it, and therefore did not owe taxes.
The Zoo board declined to pay. Courtesy of San Diego Union-Tribune


That thing on the beach looks like it's a site for a tank for offshore crude. #ScuttledAbout #RoomerHazzit

He was more inclined to IB than OB, owning a house there at the north jetty, but that may be Vincent Price in the black and white photo above.

I'll check to see if that Senegaleze is still with is or whether it had been deported,

That round thang, now gone (to Senegal?) played a role in WWII.

Cooking Pot

I said
"Do you have a cooking pot?"
"No," said the man
In this sixty trillion
star night sky

Now I sit by the cigar store Indian
He says
"You don't have a pot to piss in!"
I don't know why
I don't know why

Wearing my SoCal basketball shorts
It's 11:12 pm
Mountain time 20 miles south
Of Canada
Oh Canada

Ain't got a
Ain't got a
Pitty pitty pitty pot
To piss in
Under a temperature drop sky

I know Route 66 is in LA, but is it in SD?

If so how in the hell did it get there?

US 101?

Anyway, get some KIX, as long as they're not from China,

Taiwan? I'll have to defer to Domin

What is made in Norway these days ?

Marlowe?

Route 66:
The western terterminus was located at the Pacific Coast Highway, then US 101 Alterternate and now SR 1, in Santa Monica, California.
A left takes you to SD, home of the Cavemen.

I've only encountered one fellow who had a pet 'coon'.

I leased a house in Seattle and sub-let the basement to a guy and his coon. He went to school during the day while the coon slept. At night he would study but seemingly most nights it sounded like a war down there. Some mornings he'd come out of his hole clearly having gotten the worst of it. LOL!

One advantage of "cooning-up" (as we called it down at Wood's Cove, at least when Bette Davis wasn't around) is that whilst dogs are explicitly banned from the beach, no such prohibition exists for raccoons.

So the guy would bring him on down as the saying goes and attempt to 'discipline' it with a two inch dowl.

The raccoon would look back at him and you clearly could see that it was thinking "bring it, is that all you got".

If you can read this, you've got a better eye surgeon than I do and mine is pretty damn good. BTW after my epiretinal membrane peel (glad I did not watch the video before surgery) I'm right about 20/25 in my right eye after about 5 days.

I don't hink Ted done it thisaway.

Local section SD Union Tribune (not union made in America)

"FOUR STUDENTS STABBED IN FIGHT NEAR HOOVER HIGH"

Is "Theodore the Thumper" turning over in his grave regretting that choice not to go to San Diego High (which btw is actually in Balboa Park).

http://www.trbimg.com/img-57b919fb/turbine/sdut-balboa-park-lease-charter-san-diego-high-school-2016jun14'


The school was going to ge the boot, but

A measure renewing the lease of San Diego High School to be located in Balboa Park was on the ballot for San Diego voters in San Diego County, California, on November 8, 2016. It was approved.


Oh yeah, Phoenix Reclinata, Balboa Park. Is it the one? I'm looking for Vincent Price as I type.

First reports of the bombing of Pearl Harbor were received here in our own front yard down in IB.

And what is it today, you ask? The area is being converted to a quite large Navy SEAL training facility at the end of which was probably one of the worst surf breaks in all of California known as "Shacks". Looking on the bright side, it was a safe place to drink beer without being hassled by "The Man" (not Vincent P).

North Island? Boy, howdy, did we 19 yr old Middies pound down the 25 cent
gin and tonics at the Officers Club there, or what? Good thing we had a
carrier to walk back to - anything smaller and we'd a probably missed it.
