My friend Larry... gossip King
Larry says Miss Meme across the street is a big mouth bitch gossip. Larry says, "the bitch stands in her window with the lights out till all hours of the night. The old loud mouth sidles up to folks on the sidewalk to get a juicy bit. That catty slut may even go through peoples trash at six in the morning [Larry is a downtown boy and thinks 6 AM is the middle of the night]." What Larry hates most is she is an amateur. She stands up there on her hill, like a general, observing the battle, while he, a lonely infantry man, fights the real battles hand to hand in the trenches. "That old bitty know nothing about gossip, I'm the king of gossip." First off you got to use the right truth serum and none of that cheap sh--t. Larry's favorite is Jose Cuervo. After about a half bottle of truth serum you get the really good stuff. Larry looks over at me and says, " okay here is the skinny boy, you know how I know when I'm getting the really good stuff?" I tell Larry I have no idea. "It's when they say Larry, you loud mouth sob, if you tell anyone what I'm about to say I'll break your damn knees. That my friend is when you get the good stuff and become the King."

My Main Man
Guitar Man is a nice, sweet guy. He never uses curse words. He talks like he is from California and always has a smile on his face. He's part of my extended family. He ate Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner with us this year. Unlike a lot of people living close to the street he is a one-beer kind of guy. Guitar Man is also an engineer and is in the process of turning his street wagon/cart into a hover craft. We may need to schedule a trip to West Ashley to get parts from Home Depot. GM explains that a hover cart will be easier to get over some of the high curbs downtown. GM is also looking to buy a cell phone and has his eye on a $20 basic phone that he can purchase calling cards for as he needs them. He says that if the phone is a bust he can use the parts on the hover wagon.

Biking in Charleston.........
Jennifer works in a dump!
My daughter Jennifer has to work in this drafty old building on the Citadel Campus. She has to fight traffic for 2 miles to get to work. It got to 77 F here yesterday. We have a hard life.
Larry lives in a dump!

These people gotta be drunk.............
My cousin Attracta from Wisconsin sent me an e-joke about Alabama hillbillies. Gee, an addmitted Greenbay Packer fan making fun of someone else! This was too easy. I didn't have to make something up--just post a picture of Greenbay Packer cheese heads! People going around with a dairy product on their head? That's a real joke. There is also an obvious business opportunity here--should I offer her a land deal? Ocean front lots for $2,000.00 an acre near beautiful downtown Knoxville? I could also point out that hillbillies in Alabama are called Rednecks. Okay, here is the deal: we'll send some Georgia crackers to go with those Wisconsin cheese heads.

Dog Poop 101....... Lesson Three
Cooper River Bridge
Want to do some hill training in Charleston? Well, this is the place or you can drive 60-70 miles north of town. One of the workers told me the high point of the road bed is 250 feet off the water? I climbed from east of the Copper into a 30 mph west wind on my fixed gear bike. Had to stand the whole way up which created more drag and made it even harder. Good thing there is a 8 foot wide bike/footpath because I was weaving all over the place.
The hard life...........

Neighbors from the North......accomidations
Welcome to the 3rd installment of our ongoing series designed to introduce our Yankee friends to historic downtown Charleston.
Once you get your automobile parked, naturally you'll be wanting a place to park your fat white asses and Charleston has many fine hotels like the one pictured on the left. Rooms start at a little as $500.00 per night [$1000 if you want glass windows].
If your one of those pricks who can't stand a few bed bugs and fleas they got some nice beach front condos in West Palm for $50.00. You have to take I-95 directly to Florida with out stopping in SC to get this deal.
PCM rides again....
What can I say other than it got warm. I was ready to work again and tourons are coming to town for Wild Life Expo.................... Big money.

Neighbors from the NORTH...Parking.
Welcome to the 2nd installment of our ongoing series designed to introduce our Yankee friends to historic downtown Charleston.
Naturally, when you drive into town your first concern will the safety of your car. Not to worry we have several fine parking decks with touron prices starting at a low $200.00 per day. Note: hard hats available for small additional charge.
Click on picture for better view of our George Street garage.
Note:. If you have a Yankee tag, don't waste our time complaining about a little broken glass and dents. If damage is a major concern, you may want to get a SC tag in Columbia, SC [those idiots are always looking for a new revenue stream] and while you're at it, why not just stay there.

What I have to put up with...........
What no motor?
the way I hoped financially! Actually, the boat isn't
too bad but that stupid life vest has got to go. There is a moral to the story; stay away from
Pump and Dump. Don't know about pump and dump? Let's say you get an email or letter promoting some low priced per share stock [pumping]. How can you go wrong at such a low price? Next thing you know the price has dropped 75% [dump]. I've lost enough on these to buy a motor. BUT.........if I can figure out the cycle, get in before the pumping and dump ahead of the crowd..... Right! Then my next pic will show me swimming naked.

Been working a on a cross country pedicab trip. The original idea was Joel's [he is one of the owners of Charleston Pedicab]. The trip got out of the talking stage when I got Guinness to recognize it as a Guinness World Record attempt. Joel has new baby at home, not a good time for taking off across country. I figured if we can get some backing with big bucks it might be worth Joel's effort and more to the point get his wife's blessings. To get money you need to put together a plan [pro forma] and I can't even get Joel to help with this part [like be available for pro forma pictures]. Currently, the whole deal is in irons; all talk no action. My problem is I still want to do it. Any ideas?

Super Bowl XL
Okay, Seahawks lost but I changed teams with 65 seconds to go in the game so that my new favorite team, the Steelers, won. Hot Dog Man was right about Pittsburgh. I should have made the bet.

Hot Dog Man: GIVE. I ax if he sells a Charleston Dog. He ax me what is a Charleston Dog? So I ax if he's ever eaten sushi and he ax what does sushi have to do with it. So I say, "The sushi place has a Charleston Roll. If they have too much tuna, the Charleston Roll is tuna. They also have Downtown Roll and Mt. Pleasant Roll. If they have too much tuna, these rolls are tuna." My advice to the Hot Dog Man is to put out a sign late in the day that says Special Charleston Dog,
and whatever inventory needs to be pushed goes on the Chas Dog. One day it might be a sausage with pickles and pepper and the next it might be an all-beef with cheese and grilled onions.
GET: The Hot Dog Man ax me who I'm betting on in the Super Bowl. I tell him I don't bet on football. He say I'm crazy cause Steelers will win by 20 points and that he, THE HOT DOG MAN, guarantees it. He say the Steelers have beat the best 3 teams in football during the play offs [Colts, New England and Denver] and the Seahawks didn't beat s__t!
The Guitar Man: GIVE: Has been hassled by the ordinance police [a major, no less] and told he is breaking the law playing his guitar in the market during the day. When The Guitar Man shows the major a copy of his license, signed by said major no less, the major say he's still breaking the law, but he can't do anything about it [I'm not making this stuff up]. My advice to Guitar Man is to tell the major to drop dead. GET: His advice to my big white ass is not to come back in the next life as a small black Guitar Man cause The Man will put a knot on my head.
