Wanna Box Cutter? How About 100 Or So

Attention knife collectors, tool collectors, odds and ends collectors. The Oakland and Sacramento Airports have banded together, created an eBay seller name and are selling, at great prices, all the confiscated pocket knives and scissors and what not on eBay. This is hightly entertaining. According to the San Fransisco Gate article, they have made up $16,281.00 and compared to hauling off all the stuff to a scrap metal incinerator, they have been able to get the tools back into circulation. I am sure that some folks are angry that they are profiting from this – and I am not sure if there are steps to take to get back your confiscated stuff after your flight, but at least it isn’t all going to waste.

    Zoo Fest – Redux

    A fine day yesterday as a gaggle of friends and family hit Denver City Park for a picnic and then a trip to the zoo. Three hours of focused walking, I am kinda beat today, but what a fun afternoon. Zoos are for kids, they say, but I had a great time. Monkeys and lions and tigers, oh my. Julie, Ed and Fun Shelly didn’t want to take in the bird house or the Tropical Adventures exhibit. They equated birds and lizards as not worthy – I think it is safe to call them scaredy cats. But the monkeys were captivating, as we just stared and stared at their human like features. They know when the audience wants a show. And the same seemed true for the elephant. She trumpeted and did some fancy foot work for the crowds gathered.


    Guest Poem Du Jour

    Sung to the tune of Springsteen’s “The Rising”

    Can see bills in front of me
    Can see credit man coming up behind
    I make my way through this on-sale
    I can't feel nothing but these debts that bind me
    Lost track of how much I've spent
    How much I've charged, how many I've bought
    On my card's a ton of tickets
    On my card, over a grand of charges

    Come on up for the milking
    Come on up, put your credit on the line
    Come on up for the milking
    Come on up, go into debt tonight

    Signed online this morning
    Error Messages filled the air
    Picked up the phone started dialing
    I got lucky, I'm going, oh yea!

    Come on up for the milking
    Come on up, add a show or more
    Come on up for the milking
    Come on up, is Bruce a whore?

    oy,oy, oy,oy,oy,oy, oy,oy,oy

    There's shows before and after me
    Shows in July, now on August nights
    May your bootlegs sustain me
    Bruce, as I try for tickets, all day and night


    I see you Mary in section 323
    In the stadium up so freakin high
    There's a band playin way down below
    Music fillin up the summer night
    May you be able to see them
    May you hear the sound way up high
    A dream of a show comes to you
    Like a video you watched, the other night

    Summer of Bruce and tailgates (a dream of mine)
    Summer of fun, summer not to forget (a dream of mine)
    Summer of music and friendship (a dream of mine)
    Summer of laughs, summer of debt (a dream of mine)
    Summer of shows and bootlegs (a dream of mine)
    His burnin' music fills our souls alright
    Shows of passion and companionship (a dream of mine)
    Shows with Bruce, fill up my life

    Come on up for the milking
    Come on up, add a show or more
    Come on up for the milking
    Come on up, is Bruce a whore?

    oy,oy, oy,oy,oy,oy, oy,oy,oy
