The One Thing……

……We don’t have in Oklahoma, Thank God, is Mudslides…… ¬†Sorry to hear about the huge one just North of Seattle…… ¬†I think I would rather be sucked up in a Tornado than squashed and suffocated by tons of gooey Earth…… ¬†Our hearts go out to the community in Washington, and, I’m not making fun of […]

Another New Member!…..

Can you believe it!….. ¬†Seems there’s more of us Non-Looby’s (ask Anon) out there that want to stand up and be counted…… ¬†I, MRambler, hereby officially welcome “Shadowgraph” to our ranks of the Super-intelligent, Know-it-all, Been There – Done That Community who “Say what we mean and Mean what we say”….. ¬†Don’t expect any slack, […]

Back in OklaLooby…..

Yep, I’m back, trying to recover from packing in about a month and half’s worth of good times in 8 days (The 2 travel days don’t count, especially the 13 HOURS it took to get to Seattle due to flight delays)…… ¬†Getting settled back in slowly while trying to make some progress on a “To […]

It’s Pre-Turkey Day…You Turkeys…..

Happy Thanksgiving to the MR Community, one and all…… ¬†Writing this today, just in case tomorrow I will be too busy (eating, Eating, EATING), to think about such things as sending out a T-Day wish…… ¬†Have a safe and fun one…….

Jealousy – Smelishly…..

Right?…. ¬†No one’s Posting or commenting because I’m having a SUPER GREAT time in Seattle (Ha!)….. ¬†The weather’s great – I brought all the OklaLooby sunshine with me and the temps are moderate with NO wind….. ¬†Already been jammin’ and going out to listen to music tonight!….. ¬†I know it has to end in less […]

I’ve Got It…..

Going to Seattle soon….. ¬†The part I hate is going through Security….. ¬†Here’s my plan….. ¬†I’m wearing NOTHING but see-through underwear – no shoes, no pants, no shirt, etc…… ¬†My bags with all be transparent plastic and anything electronic I’ll ship a day or two ahead of departure….. ¬†It may sound weird, but, that’s right […]

Jammin’ with Jimi….

Yep, I jammed with Jimi in downtown Seattle (Ha!)…..

TTop and Jek at McCartney

A fantastic show from Sir Paul, featuring an encore with a Nirvana reunion! He was in fine form, and Jek even got to hear a few of his favorite Wings obscurities. Massive pyrotechnics during “Live and Let Die” and a great “Helter Skelter” encore with Dave Grohl. Follow this link to the Flickr set for […]

If It’s Not One Thing…..

It’s Another….. ¬†We finally got all the big fires out in Oklahoma…. ¬†We sent them to the West, including Washington state…. ¬†Sorry ‘Bout that!….. ¬†I would say you Northwesters’ should move to Oklahoma where all the ground is already burnt, but, we have a much deadlier enemy now – West Nile Virus.…. ¬†The worst outbreak […]

Jim Marshall – R.I.P.

On April 5th, 2012, the Music World lost one of it’s most famous people….. ¬†Not for being a musician, but for the creation in his garage of one of the most famous line of guitar amps known….. ¬†Made even more famous by it’s use by Seattle’s own Jimi Hendrix…. ¬†Again, we have to say goodbye […]

Thunder Sonics……

Lost AGAIN!!!…. ¬†I think the Thunder Sonics have been taking lessons from Bob Stoops and the OU Football team….. ¬†They have a great team during the regular season – Get in the Playoffs – Turn a 0-2 start into a 4 game winning streak getting them into the Finals…. ¬†Then they revert to their childhood […]

Happy Birthday, Jek!…..

Now, I’m not saying today is his Birthday – It might be tomorrow, or the next day,or, maybe even yesterday….. ¬†Don’t want to give out too much personal information to the more than slightly off-center society that we live in today….. ¬†Anyway, I’m sure Jek knows when his Birthday is, and, it’s around this time […]

Nearing the END!…..

I can’t believe it!….. ¬†I just got here seconds ago, and, it’s already time to start packing to leave!…. ¬†IT’S NOT FAIR…. ¬†…But, it’s been great!….. ¬†Stuffed about two months of serious goofing-off into nine (9) days (minus two (2) days of travel time – Where’s Scotty and all that beaming technology we’re supposed to […]

T-o-o Fast!…..

Already in the third day of my Seattle getaway!…. ¬†Going by – way, way too fast!….. ¬†Already visited with Jimi – shot some video, checked-in with Anon, and lots of other fun stuff…. ¬†Going to hear some live music tonight, etc., etc….. ¬†Working on a Jek ordained “MR¬†To-Do List”….. ¬†Nothing backbreaking, just some cool odds […]
