    Since I foresee traveling cross country to be much more tolerable under the influence, last night I went all MacGyver mode and sawed down the three remaining edibles I smuggled in from Washington state a few months ago.

    I’m not sure if strategically fitting these in Orbit Sweet Mint Gum wrappers is the most intelligent way to go about it, but I believe it should pass through the TSA cronies A-OK. Otherwise, my trip report will conclude at a local juvenile detention center in a few hours time.

    I hollowed out a travel size shaving cream can to bring them cross-country in a checked bag and I did succeed in transporting some buds inside an Advil bottle from Chicago to Vegas last Summer, so let’s see if I can complete the TOD (Trilogy O Deviousness).

    The real issue is whether I read my Sammy Hagar autobio from start to finish or I mix it up and watch a picture show at some point.

    If I sit next to an impressionable tween or a nun, I’m hitting up Door B, Alex.

    This is good (the band and the cover)…and it fits:



    Off to the airfield.

    Am I the only one that thought about the movie La Bamba and Ritchie’s nightmares about his friend who dies from an airplane crash debris that falls on the playground where he’s shooting hoops?

    Cap'n Rodriguez and First Officer Martin got that plane into the air and flew it real good.

    I feel being muh-fuh'in' stoned was a very good thing as there was a lady talking to some French chap sitting directly behind me who would spew out the most random shit. "Oh, there's a difference between the accent of someone from Tennessee and someone from Texas." "Those fellas in Texas sure are proud of their state, wearing the cowboy hats all the time." "I have to ask, can you get granola bars in France?" "Oh, Frank Sinatra sings a real famous song about Chicago."

    The edibles did their job as I was reading, hallucinating and trying to get that ladies voice out of my head.

    We were flying so high up there and I was thinking, "man...we sure are up here a bit! Woah!!"

    Then I look over to the two ladies sitting in 6C & 6D and I'm freakin' out, mon!!

    All the while I'm reading about Sammy Hagar sleeping on a mattress on the floor being probed by alien beings.

    It's too much. Too, too much.

    Thank God for the United Club at O'Hare and their honeydew melon spread.

    This could happen, Chicken D. My last trip I woke up with blood caked to my arm and I don't recall whatever it was that happened.

    This could definitely happen, Snoop!

    Holy. In a twisted way, I like that someone is suffering from the same annoying mirage that I am.

    I'll refrain from relaying my minivan dream, @Vegasworm Woah-ho, Nellie.
    Thanks, my man. When are you getting back out to LV? It feels like you haven't done a report forever.

    Send me some baseball winners.

    May Lady Luck be with you. May you wake up every morning with both kidneys. I wish I could bottle your sense of humor. I know more than a few who need a daily spritz.

    Do the gummies really work? I think I may have to make a trip to a dispensary for the hubs. I can’t indulge. I have a nursing license to lose and the Texas Board of Nursing doesn’t give a shit what Nevada Law says. I’m surprised I’m not asked to pee in a cup after every Vegas trip.

    Oh and May you be strategically positioned at the the tittie bars - oh right it’s Gentlemen’s Club. Don’t forget my sister is still single. I’m still ironing out all the betrothement details. Women are like fine wines. You are going to have to bring more to the table. You know a bigger dowry. She kind of resembles Aunt Bea from The Andy Griffith Show. She won’t be available for much longer. I think I’m going to load her profile on Tinder- I’m sure she won’t mind. Shit- she would kill me if she knew I was disparaging her.

    I'm definitely getting on board for this ride! Love that there has already been James bond type intrigue, crime, and violence and we haven't even arrived in Vegas yet!

    Ironically enough, Geo, even though I am in my 40's, I remain living at The Albemarle County Orphanage after all of these years. I'm ready for a family who will love me and I'm available for adoption, pronto!

    They let me out for about twenty four days out of the year so I can go drinkin' somewhere. Do you have one of those secondary refrigerators in the garage strictly for booze?

    And the first drink of this trek. The booze ticker might resemble the national debt clock, but I'm trying not to have a stroke this go-'round.

    Have you heard the song 'D'Yall Know Where The Herb Is'? Well, you're in luck. You can listen to it, here. Go on!

    I know where the herb is. If J.P. & Jamie Toulon were here in this very room, I'd tell them it's about to be put into my lungs in the bathroom, here. I can't tell them, however. They od'ed quite a few years ago.

    Madison, WI legends.



    Going to eat and drink a bit before...other things.
