"Copper Harbor on the Keweenaw Peninsula of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan."

Ah a man of taste! I'd say Grand Marais, Minnesota.

Copper Harbor on the Keweenaw Peninsula of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Yooper Country. And, Redwood Country on the Pacific Coast.

I like to go back to places where I lived before; the Pacific Northwest (adore their rocky, wild beaches and extinct volcanoes. Well, one of them is not so extinct.) and the south end of the Appalachias. (Why does that guy on "Coal" call it "the Appalatchas" with no long a's? Y'aint from around thar , air ya?) I miss my Mommy In Law and wish I could see her :(

I was planning on going to the Lawrence SRS office this Summer but that changed. I take vacations in the Winter because the Summer is when I break into houses and take people's chit so that I can afford to take a vc in Winter. If you guys could just please email me plans that would be great. Have a Whitney of a day!

Years ago this friend of mine was doing some work near Tulsa. He stayed at the Adamar Inn motel. Evidently, the joint failed the standards of Ramada and wasn't allowed to keep the name. So the owner kept the letters and just spelled it backward. True story.

Damn right, CW. Like I say, there but for the Grace of God go I. I almost drank myself to death once in a room in that very motel 8 years ago. I don't know what it was called then, not the Ramada, but at least it had a real sign, not a flimsy plastic banner.

Trouble paying your taxes? Need someone to get between you and the IRS? Well, don't call that fat guy on those Tax Masters commercials. You''l have to drop a few grand up front and they won't be able to help you. Plus, I think Mr. Portly is facing several indictments right now. You might as well spend your money on a legitimate, horrible, horrible attorney. They won't help you either. The IRS does not make deals, unless it's completely to their benefit. I'm good friends with Bankruptcy, too. Your student lons and delinquent taxes will not be discharged. I actually took a crack at being a revenuer at KDOR once. After 3 weeks of waking up vomiting, I didn't go anymore. I didn't quit, I just didn't go anymore, like that guy in "Office Space". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4B0pL...

I usually travel in the winter to avoid the cold. I like warm weather and actually like Kansas this time of the year.

Not a fan of winter.

Used to go to Hawaii a lot but have kids that are really too young for that flight across ocean.....

We are going to Florida for weekend to watch KSU vs The U and kids will probably stay with grandparents for little 3 day trip (not really winter but something to do)

" or off (or on) his meds"

Definately "on" his meds if his Facebook adventure of last week is to be any indication.

0

HollisBrown 2 years, 9 months ago

Yes, Autie and I are kindred spirits. I mix my meds with my booze, but I have a feeling Autie is a little more responsible/mature than me. Just a little.

HollisBrown 2 years, 9 months ago

Autie, I hope you take your smartphone with you. I don't have any fun when you're not here. I'll be damned. I guess they do still use the cotton gin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gin...

Farm Aids? No, thanks. I already have a cold, and that Farm Aids sounds like a nasty strain. You can thank, or maybe blame, Uncle Bob for Farm Aid. When he played Live Aid in 1985, the USA for Africa thing, he mentioned to Wille Nelson or somebody that it would be nice if we could keep some of the money here to help the farmers. I didn't know there were farmers anymore. I thought they went the way of the cotton gin. But it's all good. Big politician telling lies; Restaurant kitchen all full of flies. Don't make a bit of difference; don't see why it should. But it's alright, cause its all good. Its all good. Its all good.

Be on vacation tomorrow. I forgot. I'm taking some city kids (female type city kids) out for a little fishing expedition. I guess I should be ready for some OMG and Ecckkkkk! Catch a nine pound catfish and cook him in the pan.

At this rate, they may need to do a Lawrence Aid.

Farm Aid? Time Magazine tells me farming is akin to investment banking.

Dumbass East Coast media.

My favorite summer destination is the back stoop. Cheap, shady and I don't really have to go anywhere.

Anyplace but here.

As a yute, we too family vacations south to Florida or Texas. My dad always said it was crazy to go to warmer places during the hottest month of the year.

I would like some Appalachian Mountains, a cabin, a cooler and either a lake or a river.

Though I wouldn't turn down a palm tree, sand and a cocktail as long as there are cute cabana boys.

Hows about a funny Bob Dylan story. Bob was playing a concert in NYC at Irving Plaza Dec. 8th 1997, where the opening act was Joan Osborne, who made the mistake of singing "The Man in the Long Black Coat", one of Bob's songs. After singing her set she was at the bar drinking, and it is a small place...maybe two thousand...Dylan had just finished his first seven, eight, songs and was introducing the band and thanking the opening act...All of a sudden he says: "And I'd also like to thank Joan Osborne;Joan and I is gonna sing a song..." and Joan in the back stands up to come to the stage, when Dylan says: "But not tonight."
