Friday's Dispatch

Wolfman Jack in the glow in the dark indoor mini golf place in Weatherford. Don, take your daughter here- a good time will be had by all . It is on main right by the Tracto Supply.
  • When considering a new sleeping bag go for down if you can afford it- you'll never go back. Also, consider stuff size: anything under 13 inches is pretty good- anything over 14 is getting hugenormous.
  • If you choose down- you'll never turn around.
  • Hey, the American Down Council just got a new slogan.
  • You're welcome ADC.

    Red, welty areas from having my arms across my torso- I'm allergic to myself.
  • What she said: If you don't wise up Kevin you are going to lose me and I'm the best thing you've ever had.
  • What she said.
  • What I should have said: The best thing I've had- yet.
  • Ha. That would have gone over like a pregnant pole vaulter.
  • B2P pens from Pilot are made from recycled water bottles and are great. They are a translucent blue to connote the water bottle heritage and that always gives me pause as I think it may come out blue- which I can't use at work.
    Monstrous snapping turtle- a killing machine
  • My daughter is a drummer consequently everything is a drum to her.
  • A Journey Around The World 1806 by Alexander Campbell- what I just finished reading.

When I was a kid, we used to catch alligator snapping turtles down at the local bayou. They look sort of like regular snapping turtles that got chewed up, and they're bigger and meaner.

I hear they're almost extinct now, but back then, they were everywhere.

When I first looked at that pic, my thought was of Zoltar, from Big, not lupus sapiens, even though certainly many/most of my Friday nights in the '70s were spend in front of the TV at 12:00. Sounds like some place we should put on our list.

Right now, we are trying to put together a camping trip, hammering out whether to make it minimalist, or 'glamping'. The danger with the latter, of course, is that it almost requires a trailer to transport, and takes too long to put up/down.

Speaking of down, I saw the coolest trekking vest at Sam's Club the other day - probably under a pound, for about $25. Unfortunately, they didn't have my size in the color I wanted.
