TDS/TCR (Another Vacation!?)

Had I known I might have devoted more time to my pieces.

On the other hand they could have picked better guests.

I suppose it’s just as well.  Next week I’ll be mobile too and instead of blowing off my hosts politely excusing myself so I can spend some quality time with you, dear readers, I’ll be stuck dealing with them able to pay attention to every.  last.  excruciating.  detail.  of Uncle Phil’s hip replacement (while wittly pointing out I don’t understand why he needed it replaced since he’s just so with it and having him shake his cane at me and declaiming- “And that’s the problem with you kids today!”  C’mon Phil, I’m 120+ years old!).

These are the times you savor as you’re hooked up to your respirator gasping for your last breath because they remind you living is highly over rated.

Go into the light!  Actually it won’t be nearly that bad.  I’ll be travelling north where the only problem is that the bridge is still there when I have to leave.  Nope, it’s sheer inertia that makes me hate change as much as I do, even the good kind.

How will you fare?  I suspect without me, though I’m not vanishing to another dimension and I’m fairly well set to continue my usual obnoxiousness on the road. You know where I can be found.

I’ll be all around in the dark – I’ll be everywhere. Wherever you can look – wherever there’s a fight, so hungry people can eat, I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a cop beatin’ up a guy, I’ll be there. I’ll be in the way guys yell when they’re mad. I’ll be in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know supper’s ready, and when the people are eatin’ the stuff they raise and livin’ in the houses they build – I’ll be there, too.

I don’t understand it, Tom.

Me, neither, Ma, but – just somethin’ I been thinkin’ about.

Oh, you’d rather be listening to Wu-Tang Clan.  Me too.

The Next Sean Hannity

The Next Reagan Democrat

Tracy Droz Tragos has another vision of Tom Joad

Brian Chesky is the newest Internet Billionaire, head of the phallicly symboled Airbnb.  I’ve always wanted to live in a hotel.
