“Have done my part,

My car’s filled & parked,

My territory now marked…”


A.D. Member Ed Matlack,

From His Poem - Buried



Music: Frank Zappa,

Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow



Yet another frantic telephone call

From our Ma, hours before dawn

“Pee Wee, did you watch the news?

Look what’s on your brother’s lawn!


“Last time, he was snow blowing - nude,

Now, he’s been marking his territory;

Why does your brother do this to me?

Every time it snows now, another story.”


“Aw Ma, I really can’t be held responsible,

For the things done by the old Jersey Devil;

He wrote a poem, about marking his territory,

It’s a shame he just didn’t bury it with a shovel.


“I think he was really worried about the wild critters,

He didn’t want them comin around, stealin his food;

So just try to hang in there, Ma, and don’t watch TV,

And have a glass of wine, it’ll put you in a better mood.”


“Oh, I guess you’re right again, dear Pee Wee,

I better wait until Spring, to watch any more TV.”


Poor Old Ma - Again

I'm walloped with a blizzard as well, and watching every I Love Lucy episode ever made in a sleeping bag by the fire.
You guys are funny nuts!

Easy solution. Roast and eat the pests, if you know what's healthy and best!

You said your brother Jersey was a deep thinker, now I can see why, well at least it's not liquid, like down Aussie way. There is more coming, and if, should his thoughts get out,,,well think of the possibilities, he'll be a regular Philosoph.
