I Went Back to Ohio ....


A few years back I was born in Xenia Ohio....I went back a week after my city was gone in 1974. I let my dad drive, we were amazed by the devastation and by the new idea of microwaved nachos, still a food staple in my recipe...card. Oh! To help me heal, buy Travels with Roscoe.
If you do not buy this book you will alway dresdan the day you let oppurtunity knock and you said, "go away I am waiting for oppurtunity". My best JW

Is "Travels With Roscoe" a work of yours?

The fool or is it The Fool...No it is a work of a good friend of mine. A writer without confidence but when you discover his wit, which it is a discovery, you do not read the first few pages and fall over laughing, you read the entire book which we pieced together from his scattered writings and you will not be disappointed. A true work of art is not immediately understood, it takes time, sometimes years, but the first to discover the brilliance are forgotten but they have the rare privilege to brag about discovering Roscoe. Kind Regards JW

Josh, I'm taking a "mental health day," which means I will be searching for new employment most of the day, but I will sit down and read "Roscoe."

As for visiting Erin. I tell you, how much better of a guest could I be? I mean, I brought my own damn gift soaps?!?

I guess I could have brought pizza. Pizza's always good ...

Pizza – like death – is the great equalizer.

I have no idea what that is suppose to mean.

Apparently I really do need a mental health day.

helen: I ♥ pizza and it is the great equalizer and I do like it even if I have no idea what it means.

As you know, I have purchased and read my copy of Travels with Roscoes. I cannot, however, find how to convert it into Nachos as you post seems to suggest.

Please send the sauce. I cannot do this on my own.

Jane: Toast the book at 450 degrees for 17 hours. Pull out of oven and let it sit until room tempature, lightly salt then put in oven at 450.5 degrees, (not 451) bake for 17 more hours remove add cheese put in microwave for 2.30 secounds. Done!

If you put cheese, olives, ground beef and sour cream on the nachos, four of the major USDA food groups are represented.

Well, the book certainly is affordable...econo even...perhaps I'll give it a shot.

Zen: I thought the four food groups were caffeine, nicotine, alcohol and bacon…

The fool: First upper case last lower case just to cover my bases. Yep, good price great lit. Now I did talk to Roscoe today and he mentioned seeing a monkey clock that was not earning him any money. He was a bit sore about the fact that as his publicist I have let the merchandising side of his art drift behind the rest of my efforts. I assured him I would do what ever it took to patent the monkey the chimpanzee and even the baboon, so as to save them from being exploited by others. Roscoe feels as well do I that he should own all licenses to the simian franchise.

Well, "Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms" is an Alabama shopping list for the weekend, I know that.

zen: I was visiting Nevada the Reno area and bought liqour and 38 shells from the same shop.We shot milk jugs full of cool clear water. I was the best shot as you have already guessed. But this was part of the cycle tour, ride the rough single track trail and then in the evening we would be offered the chance to shoot guns...I am not unfamiliar with fire arms my grandfater taught me well, in other words dont point it near anyone, kinda like a penis unless you want a baby. In fact the stores advertised booze and firearms. Truth. I prooved the best shot and the most safty concience...What it is with guns but people just want to wave them around and point them in your direction. I did not learn this way, I was taught the thang will kill you or me so keep it pointing in away from everyone you love, or even dont hate.

My word, that book gave me the runs. I've been shitting Roscoe's words of wisdom for the past 18 hours. Please send beer.

Jane: I put a case of Steal Reserve on a Freighter this morning. In 4 to 6 weeks your little problem will have a cure.

Speaking of Travels -- Josh, have you guys considered making a PDF e-book for easier distribution? People could pay-pal $2 or $3 and it would be pure profit for Roscoe. No production costs, no shipping, instant delivery worldwide ... e-books don't work so well for Dostoevsky, but Roscoe is pretty short and would be easy to read on-screen, or to print. Something to think about.

It's so long since I commented I just forgot my password.

Just wanted to say hello and think that you won the duel I reckon. It's all dust and buckets of gone-ness now. But, thankyou for the grand fighting.

Molly: Welcome, you have been missed, thanks for hosting the fights, I have not seen hide nor hair of Bunyan, me thinks he is hiding. If he remebers his password he may come back, but you know Bunyan a coward to the core.Molly stick around, have a smoothie I made some tea...
