My friend, Tom, called me yesterday. We haven't seen each other in a while and his wife went to visit her Mom for Mother's Day, so we're gonna meet up today at Krystel's and shoot the bull a little bit. Tom's been my buddy for along time and he kinda reminds you of an older "Grizzly Adams". We've known each other for a while and when I first met Tom, he reminded me of a young "Grizzly Adams". He's just one of those good guys you run across from time to time, full beard, big as a bear, and just as nice a guy as you'd ever want to meet. If my mind functions somewhat normally today, I'll snap a picture and show you tomorrow.
Today is the gas boycott day. I'm not sure of what's going to come of it, but emailing may just be a way for the common folk to make statements. I received a lot of emails from different sources, all with the same message for today. Then, again, I get the occasional chain letter messages that tells me about God and that something bad will happen if I break the chain. I can assure you that I first report it as spam (friend or no friend) and then I break the shit out of the chain by deleting same. I speak to God every evening and he assures me that he does not own a computer !
The Pictures: My friend Pamela sent me these very funny billboard signs. I love them and I hope you do too. You have to look at very one of them or something bad will happen to your neighbor's hamster (you're sick. I know). I added the "usual suspects" and a picture for Indigo.
