Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Reader Shelley Walker thinks that the man with the porkpie hat, the trenchcoat, and the Dick Tracy watch is a figment of the Wine Commonsewer imagination. Not so, and here he is with Jake and the House Blond in Maui at Aloha Mixed Plate, one of the few places on the Island with excellent and relatively inexpensive food and grog. Plus the drinks are good. In case you didn't notice, the shirt is a drinking man's shirt. Stevie is to booze what Cheech is to dope.
Stevie Crown, the embodiment of Ricky Nelson's Travelin' Man (Think: pretty Polynesian baby, over the sea....), flew over to Maui from Honolulu after performing some kind of unseemly business for the Dark Side.
I got an email from him today and I quote.....
Now I am offshore once again with our Sailors. Quite a rewarding experience! Morale with the troops is quite high. Unlike the news media, most of them support George.
Hell, I thought he was on his way to Japan. Hope I haven't gotten him killed by publishing this photo.
