I would 2nd Ross' suggestion to get back to our real roots here

a Canadian, of course, would be exempt from such an invitation
(however a slight financial assessment just might get you in),
so it be very easy my friends--if you've been to Sunday Lake,
Washington Island, done the Northern Portage with 2 backpacks
and a canoe or had the unique opportunity of visiting Dorothy
and drinking her root beer (and I'm not talkin' about a trip
into that trailer on Timberlane Proper), then give the idea a
slight wrangle in yer brain. TIME FOR YET ANOTHER VOTE!!!

I agree with Ross in concept, something more rustic might be in

realized that it's been 15 years since she died (and I think in
just a few more, it'll be 10 years that our Cajun King, Walter
died). I particularly enjoyed the discussion questions, posed

The reunion trip
Guys, listen to me. The trip is already set. A 3-day 2-night
whitewater rafting trip out of Taos, New Mexico. You fly to
Albequerque and drive to Taos. The cost is $450, which includes
guides, food, tents, etc. Last year 2 Timberalums went with me.
I've already talked with 6 for this year. We leave on May 30,
the Thursday after Memorial Day. No girls allowed. The first
night we camp at a hot springs. Class 4 rapids, no experience
necessary. Here is there website. Call their 800 number and ask
for Kim. Tell her it is for Elliot "Lee" Glicksman's raft trip.

year John and Barry Hanover went. This year, I've had
discussions with them, Scott Gordon, Bruce Gollub, Stuart Speer

I had dinner with Mike Cohen last night and he shared this
absolutely classic H story:
When Mike initially contacted H about having interest in buying
the camp, Mike was still working at Camp North Star. He wrote H
a letter and told him he could be reached at camp. H excitedly
phoned Mike at camp right away, only when he called Robert
Lebby - the owner/director of Camp North Star answered the
phone. H did not want to stir up any controvery calling one of
Robert's employees at camp so he tried to disguise who he was.
He asks for "Mike Cohen" and Robert says, "I'll be happy to get
him, can I ask who's calling?" H pauses for a moment and says,
"Tell him this is Harold.... Harold Washington."
Robert - having to contain himself because he recognizes who it
really is on the phone - goes to the public address system and
pages Mike to the office:
"Mike Cohen come to the office, the Mayor of Chicago is holding
for you on line one!"

The unit (a CRANE) is one of those 1.6 Liter flush-type-setup
units and came to $148.86 (tax included and WESTPORT seating
attachment also included). I hauled the terlet off myself. Upon
testing the unit, especially after a heavy night of Mexican
food, followed by a few beers at a local tavern, its flushing
capacity was flawless. These 1.6 liter units don't "appear" at
first sight to get the job done, as the water fills
approximately no more than 1/4 of the bowl when the terlet's
inactive. Upon flushing the contents, however, the swift
swirling action (combined with strong suction capacity)
eliminated ALL of the bowl's contents. The entire bowl unit
will swirl with water. It should be duly noted that aim is
moderately important, especially when there's a significant
amount of power involvement or diarrhea (that's why I took
archery & riflery), so as not to have turd left sticking to
the bowl unit. If this happens, any TP that has been thrown in
the bowl will act as a rag in a car wash and the bowl should
sparkle, regardless. I'm very happy with my new terlet. OK, I'm

This could very well be my lucky day! My older brother Jeff has
been in town for the last week. He's been hangin' out here most
of the day, drinking my beer and watching football. He wandered
into my bedroom and located what amounts to be 17,800 pesos in
a jar that I've had sitting on one of my dressers since 1992,
when I came back with the stash from a meeting in Acapulco.
Suffice to say, 17,800 Mexican Peso = 1,948.17 US dollar, less
($200 commission payable to big brother) = $1748.17 (net) for
the Pud Man.

Welcome Goldie...your whereabouts have become stuff of legend.
Actually I almost got a hold of you after Reunion-2000. Matt
Healy said he knew your locale and I asked him to please inform
you about Tushball.com when he got home. So he took out his
Palm Pilot and made a note of it , "No problem Gazzoo..." Matt
said, "...by the way, did I ever tell you about how dylithiem
Anyhow, not more than an hour later, Matt and his Palm Pilot
were floundering in Lake Towanda when the canoe he was in
overturned on the way over to H's house. He was so pissed when
he emerged (see picture) that I didn't dare ask him to remember
to call you; though I do recall the Palm Pilot being put in an
oven... I guess the contents were never recovered.
