Hang in there AntiM and Larry. Health first and everything else next. Don't push. Both of you restup. Everyone is thinking 'get well' thoughts.

Hi All -- Been along time away but you've all been in my mind. So good to see so many folks are still about. Too many to name. I will start to drop by again. Had some health problems this year that now seem to have all resolved, except the ones that come with getting older. But hey, as long as you are getting older you are still seeing the grass from the preferred side!

I'll be in camp envy with Ygmir this year hoping that they will have the camera going so I can have a dust free virtual Burn. This time of the year, I get out all the books of photos of the Playa art and shenanigans and that makes me know the great fun I was fortunate to have for 9 years from 2007 - 2015.

BVB, I still have the photo shopped pictures you sent to me after my By Pass on my office wall, and the art I picked up from AntiM, and the charcoal profile LF drew of me as we camped together in Hushville, and Ygmir's granite sculpture is proudly displayed in our garden.

So, kiddies, stay firm but loose!

Carpe Diem

Great to see you stopping in for a visit Marty! Glad to hear you're well, and excited about participating in Camp Envy. In my 'off' years I've certainly appreciated and enjoyed the online stream. I've found that it does kind of make you homesick though. Then again, on the up side, no cleaning and storing all of the things, no playa lung, and the bank account is still above water. All in all though, I wish you and others who can't make it this year were able to come out to the playa.

Speaking of which, AntiM, sorry to hear you had to cancel, but health comes first. I know my eyebrow raised a bit when you mentioned having a new scar a few days ago. I hope you heal quickly, and are raring to go next year. Meanwhile, you guys have a great regional to fill in the gaps.

Hey Marty! Long time no see. I miss you. If you come to Decom I'll be in the Commissary feeding the help. (That's one of my favorite jobs.) If not there around Christmas there's another thing. You could be my +1.

Hi Ratty, Best offer I have had all day! I will make it to the Decom for sure and be your +1

BVB, you now know that you are in a special place in my heart. Reminded of you every day by your great creations

AntiM, my thoughts are with you and Larry. Here's to a very rapid recovery..

Cheers

hey gang!!
wow, Marty, Cc, LCN, BVB, AntiM, Ratty, Patsh.......on and on........yeah camp envy for me.
Though, I don't know I'll be in "envy" mode.....I need a year off. And, have taken on a huge job, that was going to be small when all the people who said they'd help, said they would....well, nope. So, now that I've started, I need to keep going till it's done. Siding the Hof with 20 ish tons of granite blocks I hand made. Ugh.
I sure hope things go well AntiM!
Miss you Marty!

I am actually healing nicely from my surgery and would have no trouble, but MyLarry is in the hospital for a biopsy. Results came back this afternoon, lung cancer. Well, fuck, huh?

Crap... AntiM. We are thinking of you both. Don't forget, your wayward art is by our backdoor. We think of you every day when we walk to the shop.

Ygmir, take the time you need. Our last year was 2015 and we flew into Reno and drove from there, rather than our usual drive across the continent. It was good, but the drive across the US is really just as much a part of the Burn for me as the Burn. So the last time we really went was 2010. That's when we saw each other that time.

*sets saucer of cream in rafters*
ah yeah, LCN. That was one of my favorite moments.....seeing you on "The Contraption".....realizing it was probably you....seeing you see me and probably recognizing.....time slowed as we crossed the playa to hug....it was magic!

Damn, AntiM!!! All my very Best to Mylarry.....and you. crap, best wishes for a good outcome.
and yeah, I have "wayward art" in my sitting room....double special, since it turns out to have been donated by Fishy....sigh, old times, good times.

Hugs and more hugs for antiM and Mylarry, the most wonderful neighbors imaginable. Years that keep us away and apart still can't erase those memories. Camp envy, indeed.

yes, Salute to MyLarry. Where will I meet again a bearded grown man in a green fairy outfit (absolutely selling it,) or with a bow tie on his beard? as Killbuck said, "one of the best kind."
