Don’t even get me started. I’ve given up! I figure it will be 95° and 100% humidity in a couple of weeks, and I’ll have to start complaining about that.

Anderson Animal Shelter - Ride 4 Animals

tcr! · May 21, 2019 at 3:23 pm

Anderson Animal Shelter Ride 4 Animals

Guys, check this out: Anderson Animal Shelter is having quite the animal extravaganza on June 23. You can ride 4 animals! Personally, I’d be exhausted after riding just 2 but hey, I’m an old man.

I suppose they’ll have ponies, donkeys, maybe even saddled cats. But you’ll prob need to be half a pixie tall to ride the latter. Bring a bow and arrow if you are indeed one of the pixie folk.

I really hope they have at least one hippopotamus, too. I’ve never ridden a hippo before but I heard the Escobar had feral hippopotami that were all the rage.

Anyways, see WEB for details. I’m assuming that’s something to do with Charolette’s Web since we’re talking about animal farms but your mileage WILL very. Most of the time I don’t know what I’m talking about.

How exactly do you ride 4 animals? I could barely ride 1 without falling off!

I hadn’t considered riding all 4 animals at once! I guess they’re animal experts and will train us in their riding wizardry.

Desperately seeking lost license plate for 20th century truck

tcr! · May 18, 2019 at 2:24 pm

It jumped off on a whim somewhere in the Fox Valley. Maybe in the Blue Goose parking lot. Maybe at the Geneva Public Library. Maybe on the corner by Water Street Studios. Who knows.

The last four confirmed digits are 1317 — see partial photo of rear plate below.

1317 license plate

The missing front plate is metal (not magnetic) with a white background, red lettering, and blue embossed numbers. Sadly, it does not respond to voice commands no matter how firm or how gentle your tone.

The STC police issued me one verbal warning last night and the officer confirmed a ticketed warning could be next. I’ve alerted Jessie White to no avail. After repeated attempts to contact him earlier this morning, all my calls are now being immediately directed to voicemail.

The reward for safe and prompt return of this license plate is one signed copy of my latest book — see attached photo of myself and said book below.

tcr! and the diaries for 2018 book

The diaries for 2018 book will be handsomely delivered to your personal front door, or your preferred rendezvous location.

I know I could simply get replacement plates but first I need an emissions check and then I need to go to the DMV. And my poor truck needs an oil change. And then to make matters completely worse, it’s raining and thundering right now. Or it was at least when I started writing this.

Until this matter is resolved, my truck and I will continue to live on the edge of the legal system. Per usual. I should probably print up flyers and hang them at Blue Goose, the Fox Valley libraries, and Water Street Studios.

Please help.

And yes, the book / plate swap is a real thing.

Did you check DMV website to see if you can get just the one? I thought you could…. And WHAT did you do to SC police to have them hot on your tail about this? There are plenty of cars around with just the rear plate, and although we’re supposed to …See More

tcr! tcr! · May 18, 2019 at 3:14 pm

I don’t really like going the DMV website. It’s callled cyberdrive.com and it makes me feel kinda weird inside and not in a good way. I’m not exactly sure why the police pulled me over last night. He said my pink taillights were kinda dim and then all I could think was “How would you know unless you’ve been checking out my backside when I wasn’t looking?!??!!”

I hope you find your plate. But now I feel like I have to read your book!! If one is not holding your plate for ransom, how would they obtain a copy of the book pictured!? I feel like there needs to be a link to purchase.

Always go to the one in Plano. No lines, no people and the woman behind the counter is friendly. After that you can stop at Rural King and get free popcorn and admire the chick(ens).

We had ours stolen off my husband’s car. We drove with a police report until Jesse White’s team got around to resolving the issue. Dirtbags…

I think some folks will use it negatively in reference to people deemed hippyish. The derogatory term for people who actually came from Bohemia (my heritage) was bohunk.

diaries for 2018 - a book reading

tcr! · May 16, 2019 at 7:33 pm

20180505 You can't dump that there

20180505 You can’t dump that there - MP4

I read one of the entries in my new diaries for 2018 book, affectionately titled You can’t dump that there. It was one of my more popular podcasts from last year so I thought it’d be a good fit for a reading. The video clocks in a little over 9 minutes so pull up a chair and pretend like you’re at my dining room table.

If you’re new here, this is the current tagline for the book:

The ebbs and flows of this alcoholic, it’s all true. A year’s worth of words on my recover journey. Most of the time I don’t know what I’m talking about.

You may be asking yourself where you could buy this book. That would be a very good question. Below are links for your clicking pleasure.

• amazon.com: Paperback → Kindle →

• tcrbang.com: diaries for 2018 book →

Books purchased on tcrbang.com come signed with a personalized inscription. Because that’s what you do when you’re me.

Thanks for stepping outside of your comfort zone & recording this. I love the eyebrows comment & I can only assume by your own comments that it’s not your most natural position to have your mug right up on the screen ( or is it? ), either way, kudos to you!!!

I remember very clearly reading this entry sometime in the springish of last year & it was chocked full of so much incredible insight that I’ve carried snippets of it around in my inner spiritual library since then. You are so incredibly real & compassionate & honest to your own self… it keeps me hopeful. Thank you.

Photograph by Def Leppard

tcr! · May 16, 2019 at 10:00 am

On Tuesday Maggie and I went over to her mom’s apartment so Maggie could run in and grab her dress shoes for her choir concert. On the way we were rocking out in the truck as we do, listening to Photograph by Def Leppard.

As we pulled into the parking lot Joe Elliot was singing “you got some kinda hold on me, you’re all wrapped up in mystery” and Phil Collen hammered out his barred chords.

It was early evening, sunny outside, we had the windows down. It was perfect.

After I pulled up to the front of the building, Maggie hopped out, walked about three feet, and then stopped.

Then she turned around, came back to the truck, and said through the open window, “dad, you may want to turn the music down.”
