Good Morning Gentle Readers,
This reminded me of a certain long-time Gentle Reader, frequent commenter, and friend who lives down around Houston Texas with some feral cats and a wood-fired blacksmith's forge. He's sometimes referred to as Smart Ass SOB. Or, SASOB for short. Or, SA for shorter.
Also reminded me of an old friend I lost track of years back. Guy grew up on the streets and was funny as could be. Last I heard from him he got in a jam and called moi asking that I send him an unregistered pistola with which he intended to wreak havoc on somebody who crossed him. I figured he was dead serious and declined.
Back when we was vagrant yoots, this guy, Keyston, got beefed by the CHP for modified to amplify. In English, that means his mufflers weren't mufflin'. The conversation went something like this:
CHP: I'm writing you a citation because your mufflers are too loud.
Keyston: If they're illegal, why do they sell them at at Super Shops?
CHP: You can buy marijuana, can't you?
Keyston: Well, I suppose. How loud is marijuana?
Heh, three obscure and amusing (to moi) little tidbits.....
TWC should be tippin' a glass to someone but he don't recall who.
