Bustin through the ice...


Pablo cracks me up. This dude does the craziest things. I'm gonna narrate this fine specimen like the discovery channel does with wild animal shows. Just read the following with a british accent:



Here we have Pablo, a man of mystery and adventure. This fine specimen falls into the category of "lone wanderer." He fancies travel, warm meals, and dry places to rest his weary head. Though seemingly lost, Pablo is never lost. When asked where he is he always responds with a sure answer, "America!" With a thick hispanic accent and features to match many south Americans, one might think Pablo is from South or Central America. A fun fact about this type of wanderer is that you will be hard pressed to discover his native lands. When asked where he's from, he responds, "South of here." A fine specimen of this sort will never reveal his actual origins for fear of deportation. Same goes for his present local.  


Here we  see the determined man forming a circle in the ice. Why would this man of wonder pound through the ice? Perhaps he is driven by hunger? After all, wanderers such as him feed off a steady diet of fish. Or perhaps he wants to take a bath? Or maybe he is driven by fear? One can only imagine what is running through Pablo's mind as he hacks his way through the frozen layers.


Determined as ever, the flannel back will repeat blow after blow, while others around him use more efficient devices like gas powered ice drills. None the less, the proud male chipperly chips, and chips away. 


When his metal hatchet fails him, he resorts to other hard objects like rocks. However, Pablo soon learns that ice on a lake can freeze deeper than four inches. 


After a quick assessment, the determined hacker seems proud of the circle that has not punched through the ice nor does it seem to serve any purpose. What could be this man's motive? Is he making art? Does this hole serve some grand ritual purpose?


YES! YES IT DOES! While the rest of us fish for food, and struggle to survive... Pablo fishes for ice cold beer. I can never actually tell if he's just foolin' around or if his meanderings have purpose. As you can see in this instance, Pablo's got purpose... ice cold beer. Until we meet next week...

TOTES


Anyone ever heard a young girl say, "totes?" I had no earthly idea what that meant. Audrey says that to everything. She'll be on her phone and start saying, "totes, totes, I totes agree!" At first, I thought she was talking about her tater tots.  I mean everyone has a favorite food, but it just didn't seem right that a young girl would be talking that much about tater tots. When Pablo started saying, "totes" to everything, it was then that I realized, she wasn't talking bout no tater tots. I confronted her and asked her what in the heck, "totes," meant and she laughed at me. She laughed so hard she made Pablo laugh. Both them was making such a ruckus neither of them could tell me what the totes was totes going on. So I got on the internet and this is what I found, "TOTEs: is an abbreviation youngens use for 'totally.'" It's like them valley girls back in the 90's runnin around and sayin, "like, totally." Except Audrey aint takin to flipping her hair yet, so I guess it's a might different. Anywho, I totes hope ya'll understand what the totes I'm talkin about. And in the event you don't, totes off!

TOTES GETTA BOOK!

Trenching...




I am mighty certain many of you folks are wondering where I'm going with this. Well, for those of you who aint from the south, you may not have an affection for crawfish, but where I been down in the dirty south, they take them water bugs (in the west they call them craw dads) mix them with some amazing seasonings, boil them up, and make the most nasty looking water bugs taste amazing! I aint joking neither.
Anywho, the other day, I was sharing some of my southern culture with Audrey and Pablo. Course Pablo aint really one for bugs, he flails his hands and gags when I eat them craw fish. Audrey on the other hand didn't believe me. So I taught her how to trench. Here's what ya'll need to know about trenching, tie a fishing line with three or four hooks on it. Then take a really greasy piece of bacon and snag it on each hook. Once you've set your line, try trench in clear waters so you can see them water bugs come out of their holes and latch onto your bacon. But if all you got is muddy water like the Mississippi, then what you do is pull your line up on occasion to check it out. Now I aint never seen a water bug that could refuse a good piece of bacon, so you should have no problem getting craw fish. Once you get your score, throw 'em in the pot, add a little cajun spice, tabasco sauce, 1 egg, a pinch of coco, tuna fish oil, and a couple of strips of bacon. Don't pay no mind if them water bugs starts hissing, that's just what they do before they turn bright red and roast out. 
Now you gotta figure out how to eat them red devils. This here is where I lost Audrey. She don't like watching me tear their tails off and chew them up, but that's how it's done. Sides, once they are boiled, them tails come right off. All thats left is cracking them claws open and sucking that tender meat.  Give it a go and let me know.

Nerd chick can't remember where this place is. She didn't get a business card and she don't remember where the heck this store is. Kind of funny the name of it is Book Shop.

Hope ya'll enjoy Prince & Princess, Book Shop! Guess I'll catch you on volume II!

Things that make you go boom


Da, da, da, da... Happy Halloween! Pablo dressed up as... well himself. Did I mention that I love 80's music? Of course you can see that my costume is an 80's rocker. Well maybe more like Jewel. Anyway, 80's is totes the best! It doesn't sound anything like music today. It's got all kinds of umph! I just created an 80's channel on Pandora. If you haven't, you should check out Madonna, Boyz II Men, Duran Duran, Skid Row, Guns N' Roses (love November Rain), ACDC, and Aerosmith. These guys really knew how to rock back in their day. I ask my Dad what he thinks about these bands, and he says every chance he got, he went to a rock concert. Those were truly the days. By now you've seen all the hard work I've done for my Dad. Not sure how I did it, but I managed to get his book published. This is really exciting for us! I hope you guys like it. Feel free to keep on emailing me at audgepodge500@gmail.com. Keep rocking and don't let your body stop dropping (that's an 80's line-- so funny.) xoxo Audge
