So, you were down in San Diego, were you? I assume that-with your taste for the finer things in life-you took this train down there?

Does that thing move? There are about 4 square blocks of downtown SD devoted to drinking. It'a almost as bad as New Orleans. We had $6 James Bond Martinis with Bombay Sapphire at some happy hour in La Jolla. They were really tasty. Then we had a pitcher of margaritas at Alfonsos.


SG disappeared into an art gallery and I had to go fetch her after 20 minutes. She was taken by this huge print where the artist had photgraphed attractive young women as water sprites or some such thing (underwater) and the composited it without the water so they appeared to be floating, life size on a huge white background. The absence of gravity made their "bosoms" quite perky. The level of photgrpahic detail was amazing. They were sans clothing but the poses were very discreet. It was quite beautiful but I had better things to spend $4500 on.

SG is somehow tricked into telling the saleperson that I did a couple of water colors once.


Unguinous Salesperson: Oh, so you are an artist? What do you think Mr. Mandrake?

Me:<Now I am really annoyed SG dragged me into this..that's why I hate galleries. I pretend to inspect the work> Hmmmm. Water musta been cold.

Little girls are coming back from Idaho after being away all summer. <makes Dominican good luck sign> This means going out less for drinks and having to pick up a lot more crap around the house. This is probably a good thing, right?

Nearly 8 PM and I nearly stepped on a 4 1/2 foot rattler trying to get the dogs out of the way of a mountian bike rider. Idiot!

I don't know what to think about that. Seems kinda shady. I see three possibilities:

1) They are moving stolen Nazi art pieces.

2) If you respond, they ask for a $4000 money order made out to the Commiittee for Art Support and Help (CASH) to defray the cost of instruction materials. This is to be sent to an address in Lagos.

3) It's a money laundering scheme for th Arellano Felix cartel.


Whatever yu do, just make sure they have dental and vision coverage.

I wonder how many antitank guns 14 Brigade dragged across the Burmese jungle? Against a Ronson, a PIAT would work but my kids had Nerf guns that shot further. Much fewer tanks in the attack today.

Then there is this. A detachment of 86th Naval Guard, on garrison duty in the Marshalls, has been assigned to find female companionship for the unit as Tokyo is short of Korean Comfort Women and the free market charges too much. Radio intel suggest a detachments of WREN's on Nauru.


*****************Nauru Island, 08:20, Jan 31, 1943(c)*****************


25 Japanese Naval Guard troops surround a bunker carved from bird guano and covered with palm trunks. There are firing holes at intervals around the bunker and an artillery obervors periscope protruding from the roof.



Lt. Watanabe: Give up GI! Where WREN's?

Maj. Reginal Tomkins, CO, and last surviving member of Wren Engineering Detachment: My good man, we have no WREN's. This is the Wren Force Engineering Detachment and I am no GI, I am Major Reginald Tomkins of His Majesty's Armed Forces.

Lt. Watanabe: Give up or we kirr you.

Maj. Reginal Tomkins, CO, and last surviving member of Wren Engineering Detachment: I shan't

Lt. Watanabe: Whata "shan't" mean?

Maj. Reginal Tomkins, CO, and last surviving member of Wren Engineering Detachment: It's a contraction for "shall not". First person singular, future tense, but don't quote me on that.

Lt. Watanabe: Whata "shall not" mean?

Maj. Reginal Tomkins, CO, and last surviving member of Wren Engineering Detachment: Look, you annoying little man, did you come her to fight or for English lessons? I've been waiting for you baaahstards for 14 months. Are you coming or not?

Lt. Watanabe: "Engrish ressons"? <grows visibly agitated> Son of bitch! BANZAI!!!!!

The cry is answerd by the Naval Guardsmen. There is a tremendous volume of gunfire lasting 30 minutes. When the guano dust settles, one can just pick out the spotter periscope searching..moving.

Tour Guide: "And just remember, be extra careful in the countryside between 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock in the afternoon."

Tourists, in unison, with looks of combined wonder and concern (the kind like being apprehensive, not like sympathy or empathy): "Why?"

Tour Guide: "Because, my naive foreign friends, in Morocco 2 to 4 in the afternoon is the time of day when goats jump from the trees!"

Tourists, in unison, with widening eyes and a drawing back (not the artistic kind of drawing, the movement kind): "Uhhh!!!"

Tour Guide, in a menacing tone and posture: "And do you know what is that sticky stuff on the bottom of the goats' hooves? Do you? It is slow tourists!!!"

I bet their employment form asks for you bank account number and Social Security Number [whatever the British equivalent is] so they can direct deposit to your account - and whether you are interested in buying a lovely bridge in Nigeria.

A proper RN joke:

A matelot dancing around Jo's spots (unbelievably) a nice looking bird in the corner. He asks her if she'd like a drink to which she replies
"To be honest do you just fancy taking me home?"
So he takes her home and gets invited in, she asks
"Do you mind me asking, but are you a sailor?"
At this point he knows he has blown it but tells her that he is indeed a sailor
"Oh that's great, my grandad was a sailor - you're the first one I've ever met! Do you smoke?"
Well Jack's over the moon and he answers yes whereby she goes out into the kitchen and brings out 100 Blue Liners!
"You can have these if you like, I don't smoke and they've been in the cupboard for ages! Do you drink?"
Well Jack asks for a lager but she comes back with a bottle of pussers rum. At this point he looks up to the heaven and thanks the God of Jack for this goldmine!
"Do you mind if I slip into something more comfortable" she asks to Jack's delight
When she returns she is wearing a see through nightie with every ship, past and present on the hem. Jack can't believe his luck now, then she purrs at him
"Do you want to come through to the bedroom and play a little game?"
Jack replies


"Bloody hell - you got UCKERS as well!?"

Look. You have alredy been warned. Do you want to go to the Cornefield?


Cabron,

Billyieve me-I was kidding. I doe'n't want to be sent to the "Cornefield" and be the butt of jokes. So, really, I'm on the horns of a dilemma here. No need to be Gruff.

A proper RN joke:

A matelot dancing around Jo's spots (unbelievably) a nice looking bird in the corner. He asks her if she'd like a drink to which she replies
"To be honest do you just fancy taking me home?"
So he takes her home and gets invited in, she asks
"Do you mind me asking, but are you a sailor?"
At this point he knows he has blown it but tells her that he is indeed a sailor
"Oh that's great, my grandad was a sailor - you're the first one I've ever met! Do you smoke?"
Well Jack's over the moon and he answers yes whereby she goes out into the kitchen and brings out 100 Blue Liners!
"You can have these if you like, I don't smoke and they've been in the cupboard for ages! Do you drink?"
Well Jack asks for a lager but she comes back with a bottle of pussers rum. At this point he looks up to the heaven and thanks the God of Jack for this goldmine!
"Do you mind if I slip into something more comfortable" she asks to Jack's delight
When she returns she is wearing a see through nightie with every ship, past and present on the hem. Jack can't believe his luck now, then she purrs at him
"Do you want to come through to the bedroom and play a little game?"

Wait...how'd he know that she wasn't going to play WAFU rules? That would be enough to take the fun out of it!
