Every day, it's a-getting closer,
Going faster than a roller coaster.
Love like yours will surely come my way.

Everyone says go ahead and ask her.

Good morning, all! It's Friday already. Unbelievable! Boxes are filling quickly, inventories written for Customs, I want everything finished at least 3-4 days before deadline. I want to just relax those last couple of days with nothing to think about except a peaceful move, maybe a couple of good meals at some different restaurants, etc. Right now, it's a liters of unbranded Keemun tea, granola bars, and foods I can eat while moving around the house. Good thing I don't have to carry around all that extra weight around my middle any more! Now it's just carrying heavy boxes around and stacking them in the living room!

You'll have to change your nic to 'EscrimadorScope!' Have you piled up used tires in your back yard yet? When you're ready, let me know and I'll teach you how to put a 'serious' edge on a krambit.

Tea break... and an observation; if a wall is going to fall on your head, it's better that it's made of paper and thin strips of wood rather than 2x4's and sheetrock.

I bought mine in Manila. I think I paid almost $2.50 for them, but they saw a tourist coming and figured they'd make some money...
Check out Jeff Speakman's stick work at the one minute mark. He's a Kenpo stylist (as I am/was? both of us started with Ed Parker) who's now developed a new MMA/Kenpo, adding ground work that was missing from Ed Parker's system.

Mango lassi as an after-dinner desert!

Back home, and enjoying having my favourite teas. This morning, a pot of Peet's Anniversary Breakfast Blend. Now, I've got a new batch of bacon on the smoker and a pot of Keemun to drink.

Welcome home Charlie. It sounds like you were able to stock up on some Peet's to bring home.

Nothing in my cup and waiting for a fresh cup of coffee to brew.

Trailer for sale or rent
Rooms to let fifty cents
No phone no pool no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Ah but, two hours of pushing broom
Buys a eight by twelve four bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

Third boxcar midnight train
Destination Bangor Maine
Old worn out suit and shoes
I don't pay no union dues
I smoke old stogies I have found
Short but not too big around
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road

Good morning, everyone! Boxes are piling up quickly... So much stuff... Where did it all come from?!? At least I know where the tea came from. Compliments of the East India Company. "Royal Breakfast" tea today, and a couple of slices of cold pizza left over from last night's working dinner. A delight after a few months of no-calorie meals!

Rattan is dirt cheap in Asia. I used to make rattan hanbo, jo, and canes for Hopkido stylists and folks who like the 'CaneMaster's' wide 'crook' concept but didn't care for the weight of the heavy hardwood canes he sold. A 10ft length of rough straight 1.25 inch rattan cost about 25 cents as of four years ago when I left Thailand. When I bought my escrima sticks in the P.I. 25 years ago, the stuff was even cheaper. I was told by local stylists that I should have paid about 20 cents each for the smoothed and burned sticks... But here's a site that sells good quality rattan for more realistic 'today's' prices.

Time to dive back into the closets...
