Trax Brundisium

Lost in a
time warp
Seen without

I need to hop a freight - one with like about 83 cars and at least two coal hoppers - preferably headed to Klamath Falls - make sure to bring a radio.

It's been a rather uneventful month. Problems with fairway woods have caused much concern. The car's backseats need to be reupholstered. Got champagne? Ever wonder what would have happened if Las Vegas had been Pahrump and Pahrump had been Las Vegas? Would Elvis be singing "Viva Pahrump"?

So what the heck happened to February, March and April???

Regan Smith wins at Darlington. What's up with that?

A baseless blob of black ink. A gravel trap for decades of insight. How to remove it???

Seems like it's going to be a long hot summer even if that means having to shop at the Irvine Spectrum.

Now on stage - nat d gnat!

whut is the big deel with the kala4nea gnatcatcher   why so much preferenshul treetment 4 them at the egspense of others   i m a gnat and prowd of it   we gnats have had 2 deal with gnatcatchers as long as we kan remember   thay are nothing more than blud thirstee killers   do u humans no what its like to have a giant monster swoop down frum the sky 2 eat hundreds of yore frends and famlee and yet u kum 2 the defents of these killers   we gnats have always bin law abiding and well behaved   sure sum of us kan get pesky at times but do we deserve 2 be victums of mass gnatocide

Here's one of my favorite recipes - Broiled Marinated Porcupine!

2 pounds porcupine meat (dequilled)
1 cup white wine
3/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons minced parsley
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped onions

Chop meat into chunks and marinate with the remaining ingredients for 4 to 5 hours in the refrigerator. When ready to cook, place the mixture in a shallow pan and then place under a preheated broiler. Broil about six minutes while turning once. When serving, place porcupine quills around plate for decoration. The quills also make for excellent aftermeal toothpicks. Some hardy oldtimers have even been known to use them as dental floss.

Seems the times have long since gone when our forefathers could get a discount on WD-40 oil, ice cream sandwiches, broccoli or a road map of Texas. Since so many have gone before and been left behind, the avians in our midst must sing softly about the fiduciary restraints. Give me a word that rhymes with heaven! Seven. Eleven. Skit skat, how 'bout that! So much for indented treasures. Go lose yourself in a zone of reliquaries and blue carpets.

Even the preliminary remnants of the sidewalks left unwashed reveal a shocking lack of improprieties, even from the bushwackers known to habituate the border between Kansas and Missouri.

Mr. Jones, meet Mr. Wilson.
