Hi Elliot!
sorry about the bike thing.

*pours Becherofka, leaves bottle on bar*

nice tunes, thanks gang!
*heads for dark corner booth*

so, I met with my cousins son and bride to be.......they've asked me to perform the wedding ceremony!!
I'm so happy to do it.
and, on top, they said they'd like it short, funny if possible (yeah baby), but no direct "pope" jokes, as half the family is devout catholic.
But I can say "Thank you Baby Jeebus"!!

now, to work on me schtick......

Not the least concerned over the bicycle itself -- a $59.95 from Reno WalMart. But these kids are growing up like wounded animals!

Well....

I declare Summer! 75 F today, absolutely perfect. Sky so clear this evening I "gotta wear shades" to look at the stars. I moved here for a reason. My back neighbor and folks all over town are trimming trees, allowing more sunlight to reach their gardens. The grocery stores are full of vegetables.

In other news, the Sheriff and the District Attorney are suing each other, and the Board of Supervisors are officially "sick and tired" of the incompetent and belligerent Sheriff. I voted for this Sheriff. No wait! I did not vote for him. I voted against the incumbent corrupt Sheriff. There is a difference.

The DA's shit cannot possibly stink in this county, since... a few weeks ago he personally rescued an unconscious person from a burning car.
The person was arrested for stupefyingly drunk driving. Again. Maybe the DA isn't such a hero after all?

The Chamber of Commerce moved into the office of a local real estate firm, pending completion of the Chamber's own new office. On approximately the same day, the owner of the real estate firm tumbled her car into a ditch all by herself and was arrested for drunk driving. Slightly unfortunate timing for the Chamber.

The Lakeshore Lions Club, of which I am a member, holds an annual Comedy Night fund raiser event. We also hold a liquor license. I do not attend Comedy Night, for the sake of my sanity, but a fellow Lion reports that the funniness of the semi-professional comedians from S.F. increases in proportion with the drunkenness of the audience. The event is a roaring success. I asked how everyone gets home afterward. My friend replied: "Luckily."

At the front of a local grocery-store parking-lot sits an elderly 4x4 pickup-truck with a For Sale sign. Various body panels are different colors. The left side is smashed in. The front driveshaft is in the bed. A tire is flat. The registration expired three months ago. The little indicator above the steering column that shows what gear you are in is missing, just all gone -- I think that's a first. There are various sizes and shapes of lug nuts. And so on and so forth. The price is on the broken windshield in white shoe polish, with the addendum "FIRM". How would we live without dreams?

Same old, same old.

Cheers! Beer season opened today. :D

Morning, (((MDF))). Loved YG, Fishy, and MDF's comments to Knownmad. Elliot's hometown stories were a wonderful read. Way too early to be up. You know the dust is getting closer when the ARTery meetings start up again. First one of the year tonight. Yay! See a bunch of friends at BMHQ tonight and start planning Art Tours and other wondrous stuff!

Summer is here!

top of the mornin to you all! just got to work, not a damn thing to do! guess i'll head to the bar for a "whistler coffee" (my fave drink in whistler canada, coffee with baileys. yum)

morning elliot! morning ygmir! (i have tried to pronounce this in my head since i got on this board. no luck, i always come out with quagmire, which i know is a cartoon character from something)
cheers knowmad! i have seen a ton of bunny gear around, and i always think of you (is that weird, since we don't know each other?)
MDF - you seem sweet as pie, maybe that's how you got so lucky to be surrounded by love?
figjam- how do you always find such amazing tidbits?

if you guys wouldn't mind giving me your opinion on something? read here about how un-burner-y motorhomes are, sort of scoffed on the playa. this is my first burn, and i rented a box truck (sort of motorhomey)...is this generally seen as a copout? i obviously have reasons for doing so, good ones in my own mind, but just curious. also, it's fine with me if anyone turns their nose up at me for whatever reason, just curious...

*clinks drink* cheers!

hi Asquared.
it's not what you bring, or what you have......it's all about attitude and kindness.
I've seen assholes in tents, and saints in motorhomes.
there are several threads here, with tons of good info on both box trucks and RV's.
be a good neighbor, no one will care where or how you sleep.
and if they do: Foogem!!

Box trucks seem to be exempt from most criticism, because they don't come with noisy gennies, aren't favored by helpless sparkleponies, and are not seen as luxurious (although they can be more comfortable than tents). A friend of mine drives an enormous box truck (with a huuuge ridiculous trailer attached; he's basically driving a small Amtrak train) and brings the entire infrastructure of a camp. Except for the last two years--when he slept in the trailer--he has always slept in the box truck. It is a non-issue. Also, it's a good wind block. Folks in tents can have a symbiotic relationship with it. :)

Even folks in RVs don't get much flak on the playa itself, if they're considerate neighbors.

Don't worry about it.

Ok I'm Off for the better part of the weekend. I think I might have run over a lookieloo on some other thread. Prolly harshed her right out of her Political correct complacency or pissed her of untill she curses every bunny she sees. Blah.

A² Thank you! that's sweet. I am but one of a million Bunnies running around Burner land. The fact I spent an entire Year in bunny ears between burns the other year just makes me more out front. as far as Campers go Try to Stay out of the back of DocPyro's (unless your into that kinda thing) and Ygmir's totally correct it's all about ones attitude and the way the interact with their neighbors.

Please have fun for me everyone! I'm going out into the world I will try to come back with a tale of daring adventure or a poignant description of the infinite beauty and delicate fragility of the human condition.
Cheers! :coffee:

And I guess that the catholic cardinals are finally admitting that their sexual outlook is completely freaky by electing a talking mule as pope.

Ai yai yai! I get a three day weekend since I worked last Sunday. Yay! I have been in dark compression lately, and this afternoon I just looked around and saw it was sunny and nice, and WOW, little eye opening, what what. Let's have fruity Rum drinks and sit outside and listen to music. on the Bar's Veranda, I guess. Get some sunlight into those peepers.
