Rō’bear Re’por going to the dark side

Unknown.pngDear Readers

Rō’bear is going to the Dark side for a few weeks beginning Sept. 14th. Traveling south to check out rumors of a Deep State in the Central Andes along with some fly fishing and of course observance of the daily Pisco Hour.  He will procure assistance from local personas de mala reputación y conferencistas invitados residing in Rio Blanco, Portillo & Papudo Chile  …  then hopefully return with a few stories early October to share with rŌbert devotees.

While the jefe is visiting the Dark Side you can go to the bottom of each page in the Re’por to Older Posts which will take you back in time to past stories from the bad old days.

High Coots

Peter by the lake
Pens haiku on butterflies.
Writing moves the earth.
 
Green woods, cobalt sky,
White clouds, primary colors.
Few pastels to paint.
 
Monsoons, heavy rain, 
Clover & moss come alive.
Read a book; stay dry.
 
Peaches & cherries,
Early season Hotchkiss fruit. 
Corn, chilis yet to come.
 
Walk, hike, trek, ramble,
With friends into Swamp Canyon.
Elderhaus on foot.

the joke

The Deli Lama

This cartoon is a shameless pseudo-hack of two jokes, so no, I didn’t think of the punch line, so sue. The first joke really isn’t a joke per se, it comes from a book called “Awakening the Buddha Within” by Lama Surya Das, aka Jeffrey Miller, aka “The Deli Lama” which is what his mom called him after the author in his 20’s, a Jewish boy from New Jersey traveled to Nepal and became a buddhist monk. The part about, “Make me one with everything” is from a joke that goes, “What did the Dali Lama say to the hot dog vendor? Make me one with everything.”

So there. I’ve deconstructed the cartoon and probably sucked all the humor right out of it. But life is suffering, right?
