Yessirree Bob!


It sure is one of them kinda days..... why, golly&stuff!.... it must be almost 80! And the leaves are crisp and blowing and making this neato-keen kinda sound shuffling across the sidewalks.  So.... I have to be brief here... cause it is just one of those days that is just all together just too nice to sit in front of a puter screen.
Boy Wonder called me from Portland late in the afternoon yesterday.... he was in the downtown at the occupy Portland protest/rally. He was filming with Johnny B and said that he would send me a copy later.  Mostly..... he just held up his phone for about five minutes so I could listen to the chanting and the marching and the songs and stuff.  "Hey, Dad, does it bring back the good old days for you?"  Yes it did Bub. Thanks.
Haven't heard much from his sister lately.  Last semester of college and she has a lot of artsy-fartsy stuff to finish. She's a good kid.  Has never once asked me for bail money,
any ways.....
it just is just a beeeeuuutiiiifulllll day..... way too nice to sit inside looking at a computer screen...... and besides.......
it must be happy hour somewhere.

Good for those Portland people. And all the others across the country.

As for the photo above, I see you know where to go for a very happy hour. :)

None of the bars 'round here go topless when it's warm. Except the topless bars.

In the bunch of e-mails I haven't had time to read was a notice to "occupy Viola"( town 2 miles away) from an organization with 37 consonants and vowels that make-up it's acronym. When I moved here, driving through Viola was like driving through a ghost town. Even the local bar has a sign that says, "sorry, we're open."

I was very happy to see the Occupy Portland parade. To think I only missed it by a year.

"Even the local bar has a sign that says, 'sorry, we're open.'"

Reminds me of a sign I saw in a place called, IIRC, Dirty Larry's. If memory serves me, it went like this:

"Our food is awful, rated -5 stars in the local paper. Our service is the subject of a couple of lawsuits. But you really want to watch out for our restrooms. Even guys from the Missing Persons Squad know better than to go in there alone."

Damn straight, I'm sure there is some tropical island somewhere on this planet right now where a bartender is mixing up afternoon margaritas.
