    Digital Gee envy

    Well, okay, not Digital Gee himself, but ...

    I spent the week between Christmas and New Year's in Southern California. Went for a walk on the beach without a jacket (although the natives seemed to think it was cold), looked at the pictures of the 2nd major snow storm in two weeks hitting Colorado, and really wished I had my bike with me.

    Back home and shovelling snow again today. Sigh. Now don't get me wrong -- I wouldn't want to live in S. California all the time. But I can see how a vacation home there might be nice

    I'm getting tired of this. I didn't make it to work because they
    kicked in the chain law on Monument Hill and my bus beat a
    slugish retreat! We are supposed to get clobbered (sp?) in
    March, not now!

    Naw. The chain law is when you have to hook a chain to the car in front of your bicycle and they tow you through the snow on a chain. No calipers or wheels involved.

    I wore out the "scraper bar" on my snow blower last week. Have ordered a new one. Hope it gets here soon.

    Shoot...thought I finally had someone envious of me. Not even I am envious of me!

    As for SoCal, I moved here in 1974 and I'm pretty sure I'm going to stick around a while. It's a great place. According to local custom, I became a 'native' in 1984 (according to the guidelines of a local celebrity).

    I love those three words in one headline: " Digital Gee Envy." Now I'm gonna angle for "Webb Diego Envy." And I'll die a happy man.

    You've got a lot of "angles," don't you fella? Yeah, I knew a guy like you in the service. He played all the angles. There wasn't a trick in the book he missed. Until one day he ran up against his match, and it almost cost him his life. Oh, I know. Everybody knows a guy who knew a guy who tried to "scam" another guy, and ended up pushing up daisies. But that can't happen to you, can it Buster. No, you're the smart guy with all the answers. Well, just hang around long enough, you'll get yours. It happens all the time. Some joker gets away with murder one too many times, and he ends up looking down the business end of a loaded .38 caliber revolver with a teflon coated hollow point slug in the chamber, just itching to find it's way into your brain. If you had one. Which you don't. Take it from me, Punk. The next time you see a little old lady walking down the street with the deed to her home sticking out of her purse, and you think to yourself, "this looks like an easy score," remember this...the sap who gets taken down the next time might just be you. And that wouldn't feel too good would it, Cowboy?

    Is there a Morgan Diego straight man?

    Or do we all take turns playing that role?

    Are we talking about the same Digital Gee who a few days ago was desirous of "taking a mulligan on his life?"
