Go to a Jimmy Buffet concert and imagine for a few brief hours that the world's problems can be solved by simply drinking a margarita, on a beach, at 5:00 (somewhere).

Lot of negativity elsewhere in the LJW today. Yawn... Thank you all for the humor. Hey, where is T_O_B? We need him around here. Andini too.

I'm looking forward to the Douglas County Fair. Those Carnies are some of my best customers. I also seem to pick up some extra business at the Demolition Derby. And there's nothing like jumping on a ride at the fair with some amped, crazed, demented looking carnie at the controls. I'm always a little nervous about whether he'll hang around to stop the ride or just walk away. At least I usually know the guy who runs the ferris wheel. His name is Clovis. As I'm getting on the ride I tell him "No ticky, no laundry". He knows he won't get a bump till he lets me off.

Right now, I'm just doing the Jersey Shore routine. GTL-Gym, Tan, Laundry. But hopefully I'll finally be accepted as a mentor in the Big Brother program. 10 of my last 12 DUI's have been expunged. I have a wealth of knowledge I could share with a young man. Especially my vast knowledge of cooking and chemistry.

I'm going to record a hit album and write the great american novel and then end poverty and homelessness.

Autie, is this similar to when you thought you were the only kid to have ordered the secret decoder ring from the back of that comic book in the whole school, then you find out they're the same decoder ring they put in the last run of Cracker Jack boxes?

Spend more time bronzing up at the pool, be with the family, drink more, go to the Zoo. I'll be in Lawrence Sunday, too bad the sidewalk will be sold by then, but at least the bug-eyed people will be gone. They frighten me, almost as much as Carnies.

I would really like to be able to go out to the airport and check out the WWII planes..a P-51 and B-24. I've all over the B-17 before.....pretty neat stuff.

R_I, belay that previous message....I was wrong. Antique typewriters like that one can be had for around $500 all day long.

Spring cleaning

R-I, how were the undersides of the sidewalks of Ellinwood? Was the Wellington formation worth the cost of admission?

Kalea, "find a larger pair of sun glasses. Maybe some with a fake nose and mustache".

They all look like the Sleestak off of Land of the Lost. I have used this reference before but apparently few people are familiar with the bug eyed lizard people on the old 70's TV show.

Stay employed and kill all the bug-eyed aliens that are invading downtown Lawrence.

Open a boutique for insectoid sunglasses downtown. Looks like they are popular again.
