Northern California music scene ain't what it once was but is still better than most IMO. As to naked girls dancing in the park, you clearly go to the wrong parks.

Any idea what your highest wind speeds were Al?

We never got the predicted 60 mph winds here. . . highest I saw at the house was about 40.

Looks like I need to clear the drain lines on my lazarette hatch gutter. As Rosanne Rosannadanna said...

Let me know if you need any help getting things squared away Al. Have you thought about getting help from FEMA?

Now those were the day's, wet bikini Contests, Flat bottom V drives, jet boats with dry stacks, Naked Vollyball, bathing suits were cut off levis and tee shirts, Good redneck fun.

"Federal Emergency Management Agency" These are the guys who shovel out prodigious amounts of taxpayers dollars to victims of natural disasters.

Good thought, Ron. Thanks for the offer to help mop up but I'll probably hire it out. Our illegal 'indigent' population is flooded out of the fields and looking for work. I'll get the FEMA application process started.

Wonder if FEMA will reimburse me for the two six packs of Modelo I dropped when slipping on a wet leaf in the heart of the storm?

I believe you should be eligible. It would be judgmental and discriminatory to deny you based upon your poor taste in beer.

In all fairness the weather sucked. Didn't feel it safe to drive the extra 3 miles to the good beer store.

Though the quality may not have been as good, but I miss the days of a gas station and bar on every corner; 32c a gal. for gas and a "quality" cup of coffee for 20c.
The thought of having to drive 3 mi. for beer is outrageous - what has this country come to!

Put in for the beer reimbursement. FEMA is the same outfit that sent checks to incarcerated prisoners after Katrina.

Our gas tax alone is around 56c per gallon and now they want to add a odometer tax as well. . . . I don't see us getting back to the "32c" per gallon level anytime soon Jim. . . . Is 10am too early for that Bud lite?
