    I can't recall the last time I felt the need for a three day weekend as badly as now.

    Hmmm do we need a 'Mio water corporate shill' thread
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    It is so quiet today. I can hear that buzz, you know? When there's no sound so all you hear is your own ears buzzing? And Elvis' ghost sometimes, but mostly the buzzing.

    This would have been a good weekend to go watch WOMEN'S TACKLE FOOTBALL but the local team drew a bye tomorrow.

    What the hell is that buzzing noise I keep hearing?

    I thought that was a link to the Lingerie Football League (yes, they tackle)

    I don't know about buzzing, but we have a serious case of crickets chirping here. I think the phone has rang twice the whole day.

    Well then it's most fortunate for us that dandy is going to start that really entertaining and engaging FAC thread. I wish she would hurry up and post it already.

    No need to do that. Like I said, this place is going to get hopping once dandy posts that awesome new thread. Expectations are great that it will be most memorable.

    Well I'm getting impatient. Maybe I'll just bump a random thread that best expresses the spirit of the upcoming holiday weekend.

    Call of the year:

    Me – hello Community Planning this is TOFB, may I help you?

    Caller – yes, can you tell me the zoning of 403 w 5th street

    Me – sure, hang on while I look that up

    Caller – It is across the street from the Courthouse

    Me - yes it is; OK I can see the block, there is mixed zoning there, what is the address again?

    Caller – 403 w 5th. It is just down the street from Davenport City Hall – you can see it from your office

    Me – yes it is just down the street. However, I can’t seem to find the specific address – it’s on the north side of 5th, right?

    Caller – yes

    Me - are you sure about the address?

    Caller – positive.

    Me – is it next to a parking lot? Could it be 503 W 5th?

    Caller. Maybe . . .





    long pause









    . . . this is Davenport WASHINGTON, right?

    It is Friday 4:27 pm. right before the Memorial Day weekend kicks off. My office has been inundated with tall grass/weeds complaints the last 45 minutes or so. WTF? Why are people making their hate calls to rat on their neighbors now? Do they honestly think someone is going to race out there in the last hour of the day to swiftly deal with the evildoers?

    Don't 'cha just hate how women oogle us like we were meat? Okay, not really.

    This morning a lady in a big truck almost ran me over in the crosswalk. I just wanted to yell, "Hey, lady, my eyes are up here!"

    She made me feel so cheap and dirty.

    But she was driving too fast for me to thank her.

    Yeah, sometimes you are...

    But my point was that, as hot as you may be, there have been no attractive men showing up here and there in the last 5 years.

    What were you doing on 5-31-03? This Bear was taking his first walk in Cyburbialand. So, what has happened since then?

    Told y'all about De Noc. Endlessly.
    Shared some fun moments.
    Shared some not-so-fun moments.
    Started numerous threads, many of which enabled crickets.
    Authored the infamous Random Thoughts threads, a grande tradition.
    Co-hosted the Death Pool threads. Yeah, yeah.....very late on updates this year, yadda.
    Posted over 9000 times.
    Lumbered over to Stanfests in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, and Ann Arbor. Bears lumber, donchaknow?!
    Watched, via the magic of this here interweb thingy, as numerous Cyburbians came and went.
    Felt a real sense of loss when the death of Chet was announced.
    Shared my somewhat varied musical tastes.
    Bragged about my homeland, NW Ohio, Toledo, Swanton, very rural Henry County.
    Kept all up-to-date on that patch of America known as The Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
    Berated and praised my Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings.
    Shouted from the highest hill, Go Blue!
    Screamed in glory then pain as my Pittsburgh Steelers won a couple Super Bowls and then lost one.
    Provided details (sometimes way too much) about my life, loves, marriages, relationships, yadda.
    Smiled as my friends from Cyburbia all piled into my rugged Tundra for a long, fun ride.

    Thanks for the swell ride. Hope to enjoy many more miles.

    Occupy Cyburbia!

    Bear you not leaving are ?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
