The bears carjacked the family and everyone had to walk home.
Just kidding. The rest of the family was eaten by the bears.

SO!! If you agree, OR, if you are feeling TOO happy and want to reign that shit in, check out my shitty blog, The Bad Actor. It's chock full of mental/social/emotional/physical health and wellness tips; sob stories about how life has continued to screw me over; Witty inspirational sayings; scientific articles regarding nutrition, food, depression, and relationships; and a bunch of other crap I've ripped off from other sites. In fact, I've posted more crap there in the past two weeks than I have on Moonpie in the past two years. More or less.

The fall of the year is approaching and this is when we really turn up the posts. We are not going to tell you why we have been too busy for Pie, but simply to say we are returning.

If ever there was a perfect place to work, this might just be it. The tour guide called out to one of the workers as we walked along: "How ya doin' today?!"
He replied "I work in a brewery. Doesn't get much better."

Rick, being the penny-pinching Scot that he is, could not see laying out $80 for a cap and gown he would never wear again.
"I've a perfectly serviceable kilt and sporran," he said. "Time to wear it before I lose too much weight."
Oh, how we laughed and laughed over that one.

In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.
That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.
The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.
From January 2006 until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moskow etc.
At the moment there is no ascertained relation or common trait among the people that have dreamed of seeing this man. Moreover, no living man has ever been recognized as resembling the man of the portrait by the people who have seen this man in their dreams.
The Moonpie Chronicles is oddly happy to support the thisman.org website and its mission: - to help those who have seen this man in their dreams and to foster communication among them;
- to understand who this man is and why he appears in an apparently pattern-less array of situations in the dreams of such diverse human subjects.

OK, that's not true. It was not so much that we were running from the law but that we were running into the law and they were making us pour our beer out and smash our bongs.
Anyway, here's an old APD Ford Galaxie 500 cruiser. This was one of my dream cars with its Police Interceptor engine.
Actually, when we were in our teens, I believe APD was using Plymouth Satellites. I think they'd gone to the all white car by then, but they still had the classic cherry-top (aka gumball machine.) The low-profile light racks they have nowadays make it hard to spot Johnny Law sneaking up behind you on the road.
I don't know where I'm going with this. I just spotted this car up the street and thought it was bitchin'

Dick was also the host of New Years Rockin' Eve, and that was the place to be on New Years if you were too young to go our of the house, or didn't have any friends ofr a date or anything. Kind of sad really.
From The Band to playing Loretta Lynn's daddy in "Coal Miner's Daughter" to his work with The Levon Helm Allstars, a great blues band, Helm's contribution can't be denied.
Rest easy, rest in peace, old boy.

Business was booming at The Bud Farm Landscapes in 1979 and the Movie Apocalypse Now was all the rage. We just aquired a new Design Center for homeowner installs and patios. This catches the crew directing the client to the new location and sales staff.

A heavy drinking session, the likes of which we will hopefully not see again for a long long time followed with much jocularity.

America, the true melting pot.

Here are a few pages from the original book regarding our affiliation with NORML - the National Association for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
Back in 1976, flush with cash from my $364/month salary in the US Army, I bought Vance a membership in the organization as a birthday present.
|The NORML BMW -- combining our favorite car (before it was a Yuppie Machine) and our favorite recreational drug! Also a brochure from NORML and a cartoon about cops and pot. (Click the pic to biggify)|
|A generic letter from the NM branch of NORML. Note that the address of the former NM HQ is now a gift shop. NO, not that kind of gift shop. (Click the pic to biggify)|
You can still support NORML and help rid our nation of these draconian laws bu clicking one of the many links located on this page. Including this stupid looking link that didn't quite work as I'd imagined it.
"Hey, are you three ladies from Scotland?"
One of them chirped: "It's WALES you friggin' idiot!"
I was so embarrassed. But it's an innocent mistake.
I apologized and said, "Sorry, are you three whales from Scotland ?"
Then the lights went out...

They say youth is wasted on the young. I say good hallucinogens are.
I also say I should be grading papers instead of fucking around with this nonsense.

Rick and his child bride went with the products from the earth and built this cool cottage, complete with 'green roof'. Very nice.

It's a funny world we live in. If you don't think so, just wait 30 plus years and then get back to me. Hell, I remember when I was a repairman on IBM Selectric typewriters (these are bulky machines on which you could print letters and shit with) before the PC's. I thought those days would never end, I was set for life with a trade.
