    The 70s, unmistakable. My HS basketball team was called the Merry Pranksters. I played center.

    Coach, and Dean Of Students (plaid jacket) came close to getting dosed, then good sense returned. Headmaster was more deserving than Coach.

    I ran into a little trouble flying into NYC a few years ago. The US arm of the Egyptian Antiquities Bureau stopped me and charged me with smuggling Egyptian artifacts. But they had no legs to stand on. You see, the antiquities were me. And I own my own self. –Ozymandias

    This is, in Greek, Ozymandias, otherwise Ramses II, who expected his monuments and hisownself never to be lost to history. From Jefferson Starship, Spitfire.

    Nice Ozy, pretty funny. My beard went from a trimmed goatee to a full santa claus, no pics unfortunately.

    This is the woman I catch dancing around my kitchen on Sat. mornings listening to Dead, honky-tonk and TX music. For 34 years now. We’re racing one another to be the most gray on our 70th birthdays. She’s ahead because she’s older.

    I mentioned this in the George Floyd post. This is the non-criminal record my former municipal employer’s PDept. coerced another employee to take of me.  I had made unflattering comments about the PD and a Lt. wanted this for officers to pull up on car computer when they stop me. If they were ever to stop me they were to give me the works in searches and traffic infractions (I have none), and no breaks on speed limit.  I know this because I was in the next room when I heard the Lt. tell the employee to take the photo at a C-mas party (not very stealth of the Detective, was it?).  She didn’t want to but did as she was ordered (he was not in her chain of command).  We just relocated the photo on the city server.  It is criminal for a PD to keep non-criminal records on citizens.  My lawyer is ready.  How would this have gone if were black? Instead of a hillbilly.

    Let’s welcome the newest canine rescue to our BOR family. Her life was definitely saved from the fate that most municipal animal shelters bring to street animals they find, at least down south. Up north their life expectancy may be a little longer. It was a Happy Thanksgiving for all. Her name is Thea and she has a family committed to her happiness now, and it’ll go the other way once she recovers from the abuse she suffered on the street. (not my recue)

    Thanks go to the family.

    Just awesome. Giving happiness to God’s beautiful creature.
    Me & my girl gave up watching Animal Cops years ago becasue the toll it took on us was too much.

    Thanks for sharing OZY… and for giving a life, lots of love, belly rubs & treats ❤
    Welcome Thea, to our SG family.

    Thanks to Ozy for introducing (Al)Thea and to BTJ for the kind words. We adopted her yesterday, she is a mixed breed with a lot of Pit. Animal Services believe she escaped from a breeding farm (which up here is a boarded up abandoned house with a mess of dogs thrown in and, when the inevitable happens, the puppies are collected and sold). She is severely underweight and was bred at < 1 year of age. The good news is that she is eating like Joey Chestnut so should be gaining weight soon.

    What Ozy didn’t mention is that for many years he has volunteered countless hours to save and take care of rescues. He is also very knowledgeable about dog behavior and is providing guidance on how to coax Thea out of her shell. She is very skittish about lights, so no pic yet, but one will come soon.

    Try this again.

    The whole crew on our last long road trip summer 2019, my kids are now 16, 13 and 13.

    Hopefully this summer will see us again on the road for 3-4 weeks, already have reservations in Tillicum, Or., The central coast of Washington, Olympic NP and The Orcas Islands.

    Hopefully covid cooperates this year.

    Right on AikoWolf. Great pic!!!
    Amazing view… and what a beautiful looking family!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Love to put faces with freaks (musically speaking) like me ❤
    I’m looking to get back to the PNW soon too!!!

    I say we all go visit Room204 and turn his place upside-down for a crazy weekend!
    Of course, I will pay for damages.

    thanks BTJ, party at 204 sounds great. My wife refuses for the time on our family vacations for to meet my “imaginary friends” from online, and since she’s the one paying 95% of the bills and expenses…

    I’m just saying I’ll be solo when it happens.
