Yessir, I reckon the postin's are gonna be light fer a spell. With this damn cursid midwest bloggin' dust bowl, seems a feller caint feed his own kin on a 100 acre TypePad spread no more. So tomorrow mornin' me and Tammi Jo are fixin' to load up the old Ford and head out west. Californy, or Bust!
Good Lord willin' and the creeks don't rise, onced we get out thar we'll be sendin' back a few purty picture postcards, over to the Bolus blog. Rose Hightower's boy Roy Don says they got zucchinis out there in Californy as big as yore whole haid. I 'spect he's pullin' my leg, but I seen fer myself the big palm trees and such in the movin' picture show over to Central City.
So y'all be checkin' back here now. We're supposed to meet up with the Coopers' boy, Coop, the one who found work out there paintin' pictures of naked ladies with the big bosoms. He found him a real nice gal to marry, and they says that with the writers strike and all that, maybe I can find some pun or double entendre work at WB or UPN or somesuch, long as I don't mind being hollered at and called a scab, and have them Union boys in the picket line throw hot decaf macchiatos at me. He says them networks got plenty of jobs fer writers, long as you don't agitate fer the Union. I tolt him, hell no, I ain't no goddamn communist! I just need some gag jobs so's Tammi Jo and the babies don't have to go hungry no more. He says, well that's a good thing, elseways the bossman'll be siccin' the studio Pinkertons on you.
Until then it don't matter. 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, and there are people who want to lay side bets on that fight, 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, or drunk, or just feel like yellin'. I'll be in the way kids laugh when they see drunk yellin' guys, and when the people are lootin' the Wal Mart when the cops are too distracted beatin' up the drunk yellin' guys - I'll be there, too.
Because we are the people, and we are Glory Bound.
