:coffee: first.
Wednesday is a day off in the middle of the week for me. It's called the donut shift, with a hole in the middle.
This thing in the desert is looming, and I will be attending this year. I have accumulated enough stuff, so that there is no big purchasing schedule. I get to sort through what I already have, and will try a less-is-more approach. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! So easy to write that shit. I want to put a guitar amp on the back of my trike. I need to buy another axle for said trike. I need to fix the pickup in the little peanut backpacker guitar. The lamp stands need imagineering. Will the picnic table/bench ever get built?

I just found out that butterflies are attracted to urine.

So if you want butterflies, pee in your garden. 8)

Re: attracting butterflies. It's a bit cruel, don't you think? Will they be fooled enough to come back after that trick? The tale of the bladder who cried, "pollen!"

Back at the hive a bee will be doing a dance with your address in it, and whatever the bee description is of "definitely not nectar" and "stay the fuck away, believe me."

(*staggers thru the door, dripping with sweat, one shoe half off, eyeballs spinning.
stumbles around behind the bar until he finds the Jefferson’s Reserve Very Old Very Small Batch Bourbon and pours himself about half a shot*)

Hark. Ahhhhhhhhh….

Say… may I move in and live here in The Bar for a while? I simply must get out of Clearlake.

(*the usual suspects gather around*)

Couple months ago, new people moved in across the street. Woman around 50, man similar age, her son 18 – plus, recently, her mom twohundredandfourtyeleven.

Rough people, but perfectly nice to me. The man and I are playing with bicycles already. He is short and broad – a powder-keg of muscles and tattoos – and gregarious.

The woman’s son is tall and lean and quick -- and quiet.

This afternoon… for the first time… there were loud and angry voices over there.
I was enjoying my siesta with ice cream and a nap, and tried to ignore them.

Until the woman shouted “Help me! Help me!”

….
….
….

I jumped for the door, turned around and put shorts on, went out and ran across the street and into their house.
I couldn’t tell you whether their door was locked or not.

In the kitchen are the man and the son, waving machetes at each other. So, obviously, I walk in between them with a broom.

Long story short… I finally managed to take the powder-keg for a walk around the block – several blocks.
By the end of our walk, I have him ready to take a four week vacation to see the country by Greyhound bus – something he tells me he enjoyed once before.
That will give the woman and her rebellious son a chance to have their “You are 18 now” talk.
The powder-keg hugged me.

And now I need to print business cards and an invoice pad.

Where do I send the $600.- invoice?

(*sips the last drop of his half-shot of Bourbon. dozes off*)

ha! fair enough.
I just seem to remember, more LEO and first responders are injured or killed in domestic disputes?
Years ago, when I was young and strong, I broke up a fight where a guy was slapping a woman around in a parking lot....threw him off and against a truck.....and she started attacking me, telling me not to hurt him... so yeah.

That woman's reaction would be hilarious, if it were not so serious and sad. I forget what this phenomenon is called, but it is about women who are "addicted" to staying with their abuser. To her, being beaten by the lout is normal. Also, he is "the devil she knows" -- the next guy could be worse.
And from what I have read, this phenomenon is alarmingly common.

Let's hope my new neighbors do not have this problem also.

Sham, that really is funny, because... they are vaguely aware of Burning Man and that I go there, and that I bring lots of Stuff and I repair bicycles and whatnot.
And... a couple weeks ago, the woman asked if I needed help up there. She figured they could come with me and help out, and get a free trip to "the show".

They are wonderfully pleasant people to me and other neighbors. They go to an annual event about flying saucers and such -- aliens landing in Egypt thousands of years ago, Erich von Dennicken (sp?), and that stuff. So they have at least a slight inkling that I do something similar, which makes me OK in their book. (I will grasp at any such straw to support neighborliness.)

But dang... two unaltered males of rough backgrounds in one corral....

It's a glorious morning. The birds are singing. Just a coffee with a shot of Kahlua for me. BRC Census is decorating lab coats today. Oh, today is action day. The Permaculture people are teamed up with burners in Oakland to rework and plant an elementary school yard. Gotta run.

*staggers in - looks around*
Whoa! This place is still here! Sweet! I see a few of the usual suspects!
*grabs a cool sarsaparilla from the bar*
Plans are definitely afoot for this year! Gathering a crew and throwing the lounge up once again. Building a small temple this year as well and hoping to have it in one of the city plazas! Check out the Temple uv Enlightenment!
*drains glass and waves*
See you all soon!
*wanders off purposefully*
A plan is what you vary from.

Destiny Lounge has been proven to cause cuteness in small kittens.

Destiny Lounge 3D - located in the 3:00 Plaza at G for 2019! Look for our art installation too: The Temple uv Enlightenment!
