Greetings Rastafarian Rejects,

Hopefully this letter finds you all as fit as a malley bull and twice as dangerous.
Summer is just about here with the old mercury starting to nudge 35C (95F). It's about bloody time. I've had my share of wearing jeans and jumpers. Plus the beers taste a whole lot better when it's a hundred in the waterbag.
Last weekend I shot up to McCall to give a mate a hand. For the uninitiated, McCall is kind of a yuppie hang out two that got a huge lake for summer sports plus in winter there is snow everywhere for all and sundry to enjoy. It takes me about an hour and a half each way to get there and back. My mate Tom (Blouse) and MJ (Mary-Jo) moved into some new digs and needed me to help move some gear. Like I've always said, I'm not real bright but I can lift heavy weights. Prior to moving, they had the place painted, and fair dinkum, their 3 year old son Cameron could have done a better job. Put it this way, it two rolls of film just to highlight the cockups.
This weekend sees the 10th annual Boise River Festival take place. It's a big family day out that lasts for nearly a week with most of the attraction being free to get into. I been going for the last couple of years and always seem to have a fair amount of fun even though you get bombarded with corporate advertising bullshit. They have a sand sculpture competition that is truly awesome. It amazes me to see what the can make with some sand, a shovel and a bucket. I generally just go to see that event.
This weeks update sees the town of Bangor, Maine on the East Coast of the United States. Bangor is the home home of the horror novelist, Stephen King.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Stay Happy ;-)

On the main street is the Paul Bunyan Statue. Paul was a lumberjack who's deeds have risen to mythical proportions over the years.

You learn really fast that the only public toilets worth visiting in America are found under the "Golden Arches".

The Old Mill Pub in Skowhegan, Maine is a great little place to chill out and have bite to eat and a sherbet or two.
