The Local _ Cooking _ Making the World a Better Place?

Posted by: vatsuG 24.Jan.2015, 01:42 AM

So let's hear it Localers:

What are you going to do, personally, this year, to make the world a better place?

What is the point of anything if we aren't making progress?

Best regards,

Gus

To post here in good faith and in a comedic way, so as to provide an outlet for all those out there who lead dull, sad and unrewarding lives.

By creating here a small Edenic place to provide a refuge for those that need it, due to the harsh pressures and depredations forced upon them in their continuous pursuit of the unreachable pleasures and fulfillment that life only promises to them, but never provides.

Is that progress enough???

Sounds good to me, my Caprinaen friend.

And you do it so well.

Inactivity and silence. I'm just not going to add to the chaos.

Ask me in about 11 months.

I am going to write a book about one of my exposes, most likely one of the unsolved murders like that of Olof Palme, John P. Wheeler or Suzanne Jovin.

Will make up my mind in the next few weeks.

Wonder who Gus is. Could he be my old covert buddy in Cuba, released as part of Washington's rapprochement with Havana?

Gus has something about him that makes me feel like he has been here before...in another life...

Welcome back!!!

I would love to put some funny posts on TL and get a discussion going instead of all this MV crap which nobody can answer except MV but i feel like giving up on this site and becoming a Benadictine monk instead

Here is the thing, Model T.: our good friend Dr. Trowbridge Ford does not have a playful sense of humour about his name and identity. It is inconceivable to me that he would be including the name of a 100 year old American car in his posting name. I am also pretty sure that he stopped posting here when he moved back to Connecticut.

On the other hand, I am not adverse to someone taking up the good Doctor's mantle and mission. He is like Batman, Birger Jarl, and Elmer Fudd wrapped up into one. If you are worthy of being Trowbridge 2.0, then so be it.

Here then, is the test. Answer the following questions within 24 hours of this post.

(1) What was your nickname as a lad?
(2) What was the nickname of your father's military unit?
(3) Where did you go to high school?
(4) Where did you go to basic training?
(5) What was the name, nickname, and breed of the dog you had in Sweden?

Show me that you know the man's life well enough to use his name.

Tick, tick, tick...

Oh, hi Gus, didn't see your post, as I have been dealing with matters pertaining to the Jovin murder here at New Haven. You certainly sound like the real Gus.

The answers to your questions, not necessarily in the right order, are\:

Snow, Grasshoppers, Phiillips Exeter, July 1952, and Fresco or Freshy.

P.s. How did you finally escape from Castro's prison after I set you up as part of my Agency mission?

It really thought that you were part of Palme's long-term commune entourage, like that journalist from Latvia.

.I was just following orders from Anatoiy Golitsin.

Well played, Dr. Ford.

I noticed that you gave the year that you were at Fort Holabird, as opposed to the name of the fort, but close reading has never been your forte, so that is within the margin of error.

I never blamed you for your actions in Cuba. I knew that, as always, you were serving the greater good.

I spent four months in a prison in Ciego de

Looks like those Castro brothers ruined your memory, Gus, as I went to Fort Dix in July 1952, and on to Holabird after Christmas.

Basic training was worse than anything the Cubans could have done to you. Our instructors treated us college graduates as if we were worse than the North Koreans, and the all black company across the way looked as if they wanted to start the revolution right then and there.

Moving back to the States has proven more difficult than I thought.

Will explain later after the blizzard sets in. Niow I am busy preparing for it. Looks like more Pentagon-made weather modification to me.

Think Mzungu is just taking his usual break in SA

Hope things are good in Jamtland.

Yours,
Trow.
