Nice day at home. Both my kids are here for an early Father's Day celebration (I'm going to be on the road for most of June). I told them I had three requests: a bike ride, and jump in the pool and make me laugh. After our bike ride (three women are riding in the new horse arena, and two of them are talking on cell phones as they ride), we all held hands and jumped in the pool (an old tradition from their early days, when I would take them by the hand and say, "There's only one way to get in this pool!" and then we'd run and jump in). We laughed and laughed (check off request no. 3).
Kid War Spreads to Ringside Seats
"Kudos to Freddy Nolan! That Jim Johnson guy is a real nut case. Be wary—once you show interest in him, he's like a tick you can't quite get to."
"Who is Billy the KId? Was he a western character? Why are the British so upset about one of ours, go figure. Who was Jack the Ripper?
By the way, my wife and I have three dogs and five cats. All but one of the cats is a rescue. I say that to let you know we have a real heart for critters. Don't be scaring me about Buddy Boze Hat Killer possably being done in by coyotes. I'm glad you found him...I can't wait until he eats your new hat.
As a point of interest, we are having coyote problems in the suburb of Atlanta where we live. Small dogs and cats go missing so it's obvious that our house is interesting with our populstion onside. I keep my hats and boots under lock and key."

"Johnny Baker was the male shooting star counterpart to Annie Oakley featured in Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show. Fred Nolan would get my vote for the male counterpart to the unpleasant 'Nasty Nellie' in the Little House on the Prairie books written by author Laura Ingalls Wilder and subsequently became a popular television series. Nellie Oleson's character possessed a haughty & vile attitude, Nolan may be passionate in his ideals, but lacks the true spirit of any real Western pioneer - where a stranger is a friend and necomers are made to feel welcomed. Good thing that old salty mad dog lives on the other side of the pond, cause likely he's all piss & wind and wouldn't have lasted in a fair gunfight.
