I’ve been busy scanning our collection of slides (you old timers will remember these) and came across one that we took in Yosemite National Park in 1976 while on a camping trip there. In our haste to get out of town, I failed to pack the tent poles. We had to improvise.

Golf and Government

Message for Old Dad
Hey, Old Dad, if your Prius accelerator gets stuck, point it toward Florida and come for a visit. Call ahead and we’ll get the nets put up across the highway.
Once in a black and blue moon . . .

A German man mooning at railway staff in a departing train got his trousers caught in a carriage door and ended up being dragged half naked along the platform, out of the station and onto the tracks.
Dangling by his trousers, the 22-year-old journalism student got pulled along for about 200 meters, all the while managing to keep his legs away from the wheels of the train.
The ordeal ended when a passenger pulled the emergency brake.
Rescue services were called in, causing rail services between Bremen and Hamburg to be suspended for over an hour, delaying 23 trains.
Moral of the story: When your mother told you, “Just keep your pants on,” she wasn’t whistling Dixie.
