About a year after Elvis died, I was driving through a rustbelt town, a guy had table in an old supermarket lot selling velvet pictures of "Fat Rhinestone Elvis" and "Christ With The Crown of Thorns". I thought it was about the funniest thing I'd ever seen. The next summer on the first anniversary of "The Big E's" death, the pilgrimages to Graceland began.

I hope that guy up in the Youngstown suburbs found out, moved to Memphis, and made his fortune.

I saw the Monkees in 1967, The Boyce and Hart Band played from behind a screen while the real talent in the Monkees. Davey Jones had a live mic.

It was an interesting crowd, a friends older brother took us in his monstrous '63 Plymouth Fury because he wanted to see the back-up band, some crew of hippies called "The Jimi Hendrix Experience"? I think Jimi and his crew learned that 12,000 screaming, booing, nine year old girls were too much for their sound system to overcome even though it went to eleven.

Trudy was pissed by Hendrix's racket, I can tell you that. No backseat hand-holdin' on the hour ride home.

A woman I know actually went to jail for illegal dumping on Thanksgiving. Her name wasn't Alice, though. The label on a letter got her.

Boyce and Hart showed up on "I Dream of Jeannie" a number of times.

I wrote Tork a fan letter trying to get a pic of him for my hand-holding at recess girlfriend. Trudy. Even included postage. Boy, I lit him up in my next letter! I told him if I ever got as famous as him, I was treating my fans the same way he did his. If I owe you a QSL, get it from the Tork estate!

It's been used by pirates in W. Europe from time to time, also. Nearly always in AM, though.

I guess this brings some new meaning to the old tradition of "outhouse tipping".

It's a simple, but effective means for boys to get back at cops and carnies.

A carny was fool enough to leave my cousin Jake and I hanging upside down on top of double Ferris wheel for about a half hour while he swept up our loot and went off to eat. He came back to let us out after we raised Hell from above. He wouldn't give us our money back, or our change that had dropped. We we were seething.

A couple of days later we were over there on a busy night keeping an eye on him. He goes in the port-a-jon. I said "Lock it from the outside, Jake, I'm pushin' this SOB over." He uttered words from inside I'd never heard before while the people outside were howling.

We ran all the way to my Aunt's house imagining him bobbing for turds.

White Castle Slider's were widely known as "Squirtburgers". A term coined by the franchise owners son, no less.

You better not be eating your squirrel brains mixed in with your scrambled eggs, Josh. Creutzfeldt- Jackobs is common in your area and carried by squirrels. The mid-Ohio river drainage and the Upland South are the heartland of squirrel hunting country and the disease.

It can take decades for it to hit you and is much more common in women than in men. Women used to regard the brains as a delicacy, but since the word started getting out in the late 80's, they're discarded. A great-Aunt by marriage died from it, the last two decades of her life were brutal.

The currently conservative radio fire-breather, Michael Savage, was the gatekeeper at the Millbrook Estate, up the Hudson from NYC, where Leary did his cocktail party Acid scene for the wealthy and adventurous of that city. Some nights when he's bellowing I feel like calling his show and asking him, "Where were you at the Be-In at Golden Gate Park, Mike?"

Leary brought his Millbrook crew west to S.F. to meet with Kesey at the event. They were shocked by the chaos, but they had to sample the local product.They were fed huge amounts of the Owsley, which came in much higher doses than that legal Sandoz product they'd been playing with back East. Tim uttered his famous words "Turn on, tune in, drop out." the next day in Golden Gate Park.

Leary had made national news before, but that incident was the lead-in on all three TV networks and a top of the fold newspaper item from coast to coast. He was hanging on at Harvard by a thread for his Millbrook hijinks, The Be-In incident snapped it.

Year's later Leary is doing a morning drive-time show for Pacifica in L.A. and tells everyone to keep an eye out for the whales
mating just offshore in the Santa Barbara Channel. He had traffic backed up both ways for miles. End of that career. The "Great Comet Kohoutek" prediction was sometime in that era. Someone should tell George Noory and his bunch we've been living in peace and harmony with the Space Brothers since 1973.

We already have a horde of legaly stoned people out driving on prescription meds that state in the little white sheet that this "medicine" makes people suicidal and/or homicidal, why not legalise pot and add more to the streets. The thing about pot to me at least is why would anyone want to deliberately make themselves even more retarded? I didn't think that way when I was 18 but I do now.

Even Tim Leary said "Pot makes you stupid". but he followed it up with "Some days it helps to be stupid."

I still get a kick out of the fact that everyone who ended up in the military between roughly1960 & 1985, took a personality test designed by Tim at the beginning of his "psychedelic enlightenment" to determine if they were fit for duty. Only in America.

How long is the year on your home planet? You told me once, but I can't remember. I want to say 400,000 Earth days, but that may be the molting season.

You don't think with Somerset-like clarity. There are still a couple of feuds going on down there. You can't be too careful. (No, I'm not kidding about the feuds.)

That part of KY. can be a dangerous place, period. It's a good place to hide out in, and a lot of people do.

LOL! I've got few from Abercrombie and Fitch when they were the premier outdoor outfitter in the world. They belonged to my Grandad. 50 plus years old and some of the indigo ones still bleed dye when you wash them.

It scares me when I wear one and pass a mirror, only to have to do a double take to make sure I'm not him? Same frame, same male pattern baldness. Where's my chainsaw?

You know Jim, we could have Al play the alpenhorn and yodeling to his love goats as an interval signal.

You missed Col. Steve Anderson of Yaweh Radio's shoot-out with the KY. State Police? He used an AK-47 in that incident. I can't remember if that was the one he survived and went on the run from, or the one that killed him? Say what you want, but Col. Steve was a man of words and deeds.

He should have stuck to snakes or branch water and strychnine. Both are Bible approved ways to test your faith.

Steve, BTW, was a ham who went bad. He would sometimes use his name and call sign along with the station name. He was on nearly every night. What a nut!
