melbrod Yes, the white cheddar is my go-to cheese. A touch crumbly on crackers, but hey...it gets eaten pretty fast anyway.

How do you pronounce Puyallup?

But for some reason our Safeway seems to have dropped the yellow Extra Sharp (with the black label) Tillamook cheese. I bought the store brand extra sharp in desperation the last time I grocery shopped---it was not even remotely sharp and was truly gross. I'm not sure which of us will finish what's left.

Maybe Hairy.
They used to carry the Extra Sharp white cheddar (also in a black label) too--it's even a little sharper than the yellow. I only buy sharp cheddars--I grew up with everyone making cheese sandwiches out of velveta (and on white bread)--I hated velveta--it felt funny in my mouth--so my mother stopped buying it and it was my stepfather who figured out that I would eat sharp cheeses.

Yeah--dogs are nice--they'll eat almost anything that remotely resembles food.

You'd think considering I was raised in Washington State and have now spent almost as many years in Oregon as I did in California that I'd know how to spell Tillamook. I can, however, both spell and pronounce Puyallup which seems to be one that out of the area folk find unpronouncable.

I really need to go to the store instead of sitting here writing my autobiography--the fog cleared up and it's even sort of warm but at least it's sunny.

dobebug Kenny,

Pauli was the outcast guy from what I was told was a pretty big league New Jersey crime family. He was the one they sent to Los Angeles, got him a job with an airline driving carts to incoming planes that needed their food supplies (this was back when they still fed you breakfast, lunch and dinner--free drinks of anything soft and real booze was like maybe 50 cents a drink) . He drove the supplies out in a electric cart and loaded them for the stewardesses. He was a 50/50 guy--half the time he was in rehab for something or other and the other half he was either going up or coming down.

I bailed so many of these moron out of Pacific Division's jail the cops at the desk knew my name. I got all the calls because (or I think) I was the only one ever sober enough to do that. Even worse the officers at Pacific Division also knew the names of everyone I came over to spring.

I was driving the SO's truck one morning because he was going to take mine in to get it serviced. My friend and co-worker was riding with me--I didn't do a full stop at a right turn on the way--we were running a little late and there was no traffic.

My friend said, "Oops there's a cop." I stopped and as I did and the cop walked up to my window, about 10,000 empty beer cans rolled out from under the front seats.

The cop looked and finally asked me if this wasn't Bruce's truck. I allowed as how it was and I had it because he was taking my truck in to be serviced. The cop looked at the beer cans again and grinned at us and said that maybe before I drove Bruce's truck again I should check to make sure all of the beer cans were empty.

My friend, a red head from Texas who was usually so gabby you couldn't shut her up was uncharacteristicly silent all the way to work. As I was parking she said, "Are ya gona' kill him?" I thought about if for a minute and told her she should probably call and warn him to lock up the guns.

I didn't kill him but I did go home and announce that even though it was my night to cook I wasn't cooking so someone better go get take out because I was cleaning the beer cans out of Bruce's truck. Three big leaf and lawn bags worth of beer cans. It was early in the day and age of can and bottle recycling in Calfornia but I did recycle them and got about enough for them for about a half a tank of gas.

And I didn't get a ticket--for the sleazy right turn--the cop was far too amused by the dance of the Budweiser cans to even write me up.

That wasn't Ray. He was Pauli, I remember coming home from work and finding him and my SO at the time sitting at the kitchen table racing snails (I can't even tell you how screwed up both of them were) Pauli was eating carrots--shortly thereafter he ran out the front door and the SO ran out after him--when they came in I asked what was going on. Seems Pauli puked up all the carrots in the front flower bed. I was beyond mad--I was fully enraged and kicked them both out demanding that they clean all of the puke and all of the carrots out of the flowers.

Probably the only time I've ever been that angry--I scared them to death.

The other thing that's worth noting is that although I drank I didn't do drugs--didn't like them--made my brain nonfunctional--later I asked the SO what the heck Pauli was doing--Mexican black tar heroin and some upper--probably Meth. Lovely group of people I ran around with. But a lot of them were really nice when they weren't on drug cocktails and a scotch a bourbon and a glass of beer.

I just reread this Kenny--you're right I couldn't make this stuff up--now I live a quiet life with a couple of cats and a borrowed puppy.

Funny how that works--with this quiet life my doctor complains that my blood pressure is too high--tells me I should do this and that--it must by my age--I never used to have high blood pressure even when I was kicking drunks and dopers out of the house.

ABTLH

PS--that was an oops--that was our Beau that gave me the award--but really--I don't make this chit--a lot of it is too weird to even be fiction.

Took my drivers test on my mothers giant Chev station wagon.

First car--1962 VW Bug Ocean Blue
Second car 1969 VW Bug Endeavor Blue
Third car--very used yellow(ick) VW hatch back--might have been a 1975
Fourth car--1983 Toyota Tacoma
Fifth car--used 1999 Toyota Tacoma--I'm still driving it...I think I bought it in 2005

Cars 1 and 2 were stolen
Car 3 used and a desperation move--I paid too much for it but sold it at a profit to a drunken druggy who thought it looked wonderful and the back was big enough to sleep in if he was so screwed up he couldn't drive. He drove it for years--replacing things that fell off or died or burned up (that was the air filter for the engine--a cop drove up behind him as he opened the hood and put the fire out for him.
Car 4 blew an oil pump when I was on the freeway in the middle of rush hour traffic and I couldn't get over fast enough to keep the engine from turning into a lump of metal.
Car 5--well I'm still driving it.


I hate to learn to drive something new--so if it hadn't been stolen I'd probably still be driving the 1992 VW--even though it only had something like 35 HP (I've used industrial sewing machines that had more HP than that.

So I just go on driving them until someone steels them or the wheels fall off
...and the vehicle that I'd really like since I'm down to one borrowed puppy is a Toyota Rav4.

lets see--that makes 5 vehicles in 58 years--not so bad...

melbrod We had a Toyota hatchback way back when we had our first dobe--it was a stick shift with a console thingy between the two front seats. It didn't have a whole lot of room--an oversized dobe in the back, two people in the front and camping gear pretty much filled the thing, so we would stuff our sleeping bags on the floor between the front and back seats. One vacation trip (Chicago up around Lake Superior and back down through Minnesota and Wisconsin) he discovered a new trick--he could lie on his back upside-down between the front seats with his rump in the back and his chest and head up with us in front. He would brace his front feet on the ceiling of the car to stay steady.

I remember passing a guy who was hitchhiking--he pulled his hand down awfully fast when he saw us go by. I guess from the outside it looked rather like we had two deer legs sticking up between us.

We got a bit tired of the trick very shortly, so we fixed it. We got to a park somewhere or other, stopped the car and both jumped out as fast as we could with a "Let's go, Caesar!!"

It took him a couple of minutes to manage to detangle himself from his upside-down, wedged-in position--and he didn't try that again.
