I'll never, ever forget the first time I ever met him.. waking up through my fog of the previous night still lying on the cushions loosely thrown on the second floor of this crazy 1920's mansion in South Florida. This booming voice coming from downstairs in the kitchen..

"Alright everybody.. we're gonna start down real low and then get louder and louder, are you ready? We need an eight ball.. We need an eight ball.. WE NEED AN EIGHT BALL!!! ****WE NEED AN EIGHT BALL!!!****" - While jumping up and down screaming wildly at the top of his lungs..

This was a precursor to my entire experience. He is not simply a man, but an experience. That's all I have to say about that.



Just to clarify, we had a billiard room and someone stole the Black Ball...

we couldnt play without it, no one will play nine ball slop with me, i'm freakishly lucky...so we needed an eight ball, in order to complete the set upstairs.

that IS my story and im sticking to it.

LOL! I once hauled a cat 700 miles across Utah-Wyoming-Nebraska on a flatbed trailer. Poor guy must have crawled under the tarp for shelter when I stopped in Utah. Emerged, unhappy, when I stopped in Nebraska. Headed back west at a gallop without even so much as an up yours.
I know.... Not nice to laugh about it. But he did look a bit comical when he emerged.

I theorized that it came from the frog pond. That was the closest shore line to where we found it. It was a little after sun rise, so it might have walked all night to get there.??? Anyone know how far a motivated skunk will walk in a night?

I never got any closer than when I took the picture. It kept assuming the spray position and running in what could be considered a circle. I really did not want to be responsible for funking up a truck.

Alas, I never heard anything else about it. As far as I am aware, only my rider and myself saw it in person.

Secretly, I was hoping it would take refuge under the dj booth of a sound camp and then have a little freak-out after the gates opened...

WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you encounter this person, DO NOT let him engage you in conversation as he will go on endlessly about....

swamp coolers

shade structures

garden sprayers

playapods

lag bolts vs rebar

onesies vs dust masks

swiss army ashtrays

love as a learned phenomena

emotional responsibility

till your ears bleed!!!!!!!!!!

The only defence is to look him squarely in the eye and say...

FIGJAM, STOP!!!!!!!!!!

This will render him speechless long enough for you to make your escape.

This is for your own protection, and will not "hurt" his feelings in any way!

This PSA was made to prevent bleeding ear MOOP if you encouter this "Shaddy" individual.

I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for this guy, and if I see him, well...
I realize I might be flirting with danger here, but...
I'm going to have to ignore the warnings and experience these rants for myself.
They sound awesome.

FIGJAM, you look exactly like your avatar (somehow) and mischievous as hell. Great photo!

I love this pic, Knowmad. You're glowing -- clearly in your element! Love that dust all over your hands & arms... and what a beautiful smile you've got (all the better to swoon us with)!

:mrgreen:

Since most skunks have zero fear of humans, picking them up by the tail is easy as long as you don't make any sudden moves - the hard part is then setting that pissed off skunk down without getting sprayed.
