The Incredible Ham Radio Network of Panhandlers

NP: Get Up Kids - Red Letter Day

I'm not exactly sure how they did it, but it happend, but it did. I have always been pretty good about giving money to homeless people/panhandlers/gutter punks. While I lived in Sacramento I had more disposable income, so I gave a little more often. It also turned out that there was more homeless people/etc. in Sacramento. So this went on for a few months, and now I'm back in Lancaster, and its the same down here. Im pretty sure there aren't more "beggers" down here then there were when I left. What I think happened was at one of the monthly meetings of "The Intercoastal Panhandlers Union" (IPU) one of the board members brought up my name and the fact that I was moving back to the Antelope Valley, and they made a unanimous decision to faxtelegraph/ham radio my name and description to the local chapter of IPU in the AV. Now they all know about me and the change is flying right out of my pockets. Here's to the panhandlers!

veggie delight of death or the real difference between northern and southern california is how much i wear my hat

I've been putting this off for no good reason. I decided to put it off no longer. I am back in Southern California, and I am glad to be back. I miss a couple people in Sacramento, a couple places, and a dog, but not anything enough that I would go back. Im still writing songs, and I am actually playing them for people down here, which is a good step in the right direction. It's nice to see allison every day and its good to see all the other wonderfriends on a regular basis. I had a good bbq the other day with whit and trish and atticus and zane. Tonight should be a beer night. If there was a brick wall in this blog, this is where it would be, and I would have just ran right into it.
