Back in town | The Bleat.

I’ve been away – the annual trip up (and down) Highway Ten to restore my spirit and reconnect with life outside the narrow parameters of life here in town. En route I posted to the new iPhone-photo-blog – it’s here. Quite nifty: take a picture, email it to the blog, and it’s up. Many more pictures and tales to come, of course. See you tomorrow.

    James, your link is hosed…has a double address…

    Try this.

  2. Tom in Denver says:

    The bleatniks never cease to amaze me. No sooner do I say to myself this link doesn’t work, someone else has already noticed and fixed the problem. Can I post all of my problems?

  3. Jan says:

    @Tom in Denver

    So true, Tom in Denver. My husband won’t pick up his dirty clothes. I patiently await a handy “Try this” solution from the sympathetic and knowledgeable Bleatership.

  4. boblipton says:

    Stop picking it up yourself. In fact, leave your dirty clothes lying around.

    I just got lucky, the Config. Mgmt. server at work died, so it stopped my work, and I just happened to click on Bleat right after JL posted that. Now if someone would kindly help fix the Config Mgmt. server I could finish my software deployment.

    Tom, I’m just down the road in C. Springs. Great weather this summer! As usual.

    Coloradoans are infecting this board at an ever increasing rate! I live in Co foothills halfway between Denver & Co. Spgs. (w of Castle Rock near Devil’s Head). James you need to move where all of your fans live. I suggest down by Trogdor. Beautiful country.

  7. Pat In Colorado says:

    I guess you must consider cold and wet with intermittent hail as great summer weather, cause that’s how it’s been here in Westminster.

  8. Mr_Lilacs says:

    Another denizen of the Front Range, but my mom’s from the area where Mr. James Jim Jimmy Lileks was just passing through, so I know that area too. Had a chance to move to northwestern Minnesota some years ago. Glad I didn’t as I’m not a small-town guy.

    And yeah, the wife and I vacationed in the Springs back in June and got caught in a couple nasty storms. But our weather is still much nicer than Minny’s.

  9. Liman says:

    Sorry, but it’s the same empty box and dreaded red X that keeps showing up through the bunny link.

  10. Emily says:

    Sparkly….

    I’m sorry, what were we talking about?

  11. JDB says:

    There’s a New York Mills on the western border of Utica, NY. It was a textile company town wih a lot of Polish immigrants. Any (corporate) relation to the New York Mills, MN James visited? Wiki doesn’t say…

  12. Mr. B says:

    James, I hope you had a great visit with your Dad. I am 2 months younger than your Dad.. Was in the Navy, but later than him. (1944) Have been with your Bleat since Knat was born. I haven’t missed a Bleat and have followed Ohio Joe which I liked and answered a couple of times.

  13. Ross says:

    “Posterous”, eh? So, this is the main course, the full-blown absurdism, as opposed to something labeled “Preposterous”…hmm.

  14. fizzbin says:

    The Fiend of Motley sez…Touch my udder with cold hands again and THIS is what you’ll get!!!

  15. Trogdor says:

    @fizzbin
    browsing radio stations on the internet, heard this joke: “Thought I’d help you out today so I milked your cow. Boy that was a stubbornest cow I ever saw.” Reply “I ain’t got a cow, just a bull”. “I gotta go brush my teeth…”

  16. fizzbin says:

    Herr Trog…after reading that joke, I’m JUMPIN’ off the wagon, gavolt!
