Yes, this is a rope leash. Not bad for forty-four, and not a bad hotel room self-portrait.

I'm bored, and you're lucky...

O, well, I'm sick of looking at that. Here's a murderous portrait:

I think that's just the first...the rest probably aren't suitable for this family-friendly website... :lol:

Nice pic Rope!
A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. Do you think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fuckin' cross? It's kind of like going up to Jackie Onassis with a rifle pendant on.

Lapins: That's supposed to be my "stern, serious author" look. You saw right though it.

Oil: Stealth is my greatest weapon.

PoP: I take compliments much better than I do criticism. Rave on.

I might use this thread to post some favorite photos. I take a lot of pics one the road, and I actually pass up a lot of opportunities because I'm just too lazy to stop.

Anyway, thanks for the positive comments. Here's someone I know:

Goody goody so like candy

Postby A rope leash » Fri Jun 27, 2003 5:45 pm

I like chicks. They don't have to be black.

Call me McDonald's, because I just wanna see 'em smile.

I'll call her Arlene, because that's what her name is. Just say "lean".

She was like a cat. I was in an indelible crash at the old hospice, the sun outside my dark dream box just peeking in on a new day. I heard a sharp wail, in my dark first and then in my awakening. It had an odd melodic quality, rising up and down like a siren, without the mechanistic rythm. It gave my heart a brutal chill.

I slowly picked myself up and walked to the window. Lean was there, wailing into the window of the landlady's bedroom. They were sisters.

The caturwauling broke into a sort of angry song, accusatory and interrogative. The gist of it was that Arlene's boyfriend was in some deep deep shit. With Arlene.

We partied some. A few years later, my dead wife kicked me well out of the house, and forced me to pay up six months of mortgage that I couldn't accommodate at the time, due to the unemployment caused by my recent return to California by her request.

I landed a job and got a really nice apartment in Vacaville. I was seeing Arlene from time to time, and it progressed, she began using my beat-up and extremeley over-powered pickup truck to drive work everyday in Oakland, where she was from originally. I loved Arlene alright, but she would not allow the lust. I'm not really sure aht she wanted, maybe just some help.

Eventually, she needed a place to stay, and my place was just irresistable. She appeared outside one day with the truck all loaded up with her stuff. "Fuckin-A-right", I said. We started bringing it in.

Here comes bitch apartment manager. "You can't do this, didn't you read your lease?" She's red in the face. "All occupants must clear our credit requirements..."

"Really? What if we were traditionally married? I mean, if I worked and she stayed home? Is there no one like that living here?"

"We can and will evict you".

So here's the thing: We weren't married, or even making love. It was a two bedroom apartment. I was just helping her out, and letting my penis make the decisions.

Well, maybe it wasn't because she was black, but they wouldn't even let Lean try to muster credit. Lawyers were zero help. The provision was there, and unless you have thousands of dollars to contest it, then you must abide by your signature. The bill of rights is for those who can afford to enforce it. You can't call a cop.

I could have just said, "you have to find another place". But I wasn't making the decisions. We moved together to a poor neighborhood, where her credit standing appeared to be a non-issue. I had lived in that neighborhood before, and I didn't like it. You wouldn't either.

One night, she brought home a lover, and the next morning I loaded up the truck and told Arlene I was moving back east. She asked if I could leave the television. I couldn't.

I left California, and moved here:

Vacaville used to be a lot of fruit orchards, and an air base, and some place called The Nut Tree.

Hey, Mood, did you eat at Murillos? Dang, I miss it.

The photo is pretty much out my back door. Mortally hot out there right now...

It just never ceases to amaze me how people can run all over getting drunk and acting stupid, and I'm not allowed to smoke some herb and get silly. This is not fair people....!

I've done my share of drinking, and I've done some stupid things because of it, mostly in my youth. Once, I launched my brother's VW off a major hill, and busted the back glass. Then there's the time I launched my dad's pick-up truck, and nearly broke my girlfriends neck. Then there was the time I got drunk and puked on my brother's roomate's shoes. Then there's the time I got drunk and slapped the shit out of my dead wife after repeated requestes from her to do so. Then there's the time I drank a ton of ice beer and chased Salavador Dali all aroound my apartment. Then there's the time I drank too much wine and ran naked down the streets of Sonoma, yelling about my slut girlfriend's bad habits. Then there's the time I drank too much Canadian, and lectured some little kids about the evils of Republican presidents.

Drinking is not funny. If you continue to do so, you'll wind up like this:

...and that ain't funny! (look carefully, you'll see the DT's)

Borglum was sixty when he first started chopping away at this.

It's pretty damn cool. Not a bad defacement of a mountain, if I do say so.

I like the way Jefferson is right behind Washington, the visionary behind the strategist. Roosevelt lurks in the shadow of Lincoln's singular stature.

An impressive wooden walkway takes you this close:

I was in the area to do some work on an earth station in the area. The entire region was absolutley swarmed with motorcyclists attending the Sturgis rally. I took photos of satellite systems, museum pieces, national monuments, my campsite, and old dried-up used cars, but I didn't even accidently take one photograph of any of the hordes of folks on bikes that where dominating the environment.

I wonder why that is...







O, those weren't the only presidents I saw when I was in South Dakota:

If Mount Rushmore was an album cover for The Beatles, it would definitley go John, George, Ringo Paul (from left to right).
