- Beans fer Breakfast! - One of Daves last projects


Yes I spelled "fer" correctly, it's the way Navy Davy spelled it : )
He was so much like Willard, and we miss you too Willard!!!

I still have so much stuff Dave sent me in the last few months that I need to edit and post.

I had finally finished this video just a few days before Dave left us : (

I got a package from him only about 10 or so days ago and he said he was doing well and gardening and going outside which was only a few weeks ago.

I thought he was doing well, he did say that he felt sick a few evenings when we spoke about 2 or maybe 3 weeks ago but he was still wanted to do art and was asking me for ideas on what I was doing, so I just didn't want to believe anything was serious.

I will cherish all you have done over here at the Nation and in my life Dave!

God Bless You Dave, Your Friend, Beetlejuice, John McNair

Can't you just about smell the tin can hobo coffee?  Smells great to me and I don't drink coffee.

I read once that the coffee habit saved a lot of lives in the U.S. civil war.  Boiled water for coffee was much, much safer than creek water with PFC Perkins taking a crap 50 yards up stream. 

I once had a co-worker say he was going to go take a crap. My other co-worker said, "No!  Don't take it.  Leave it!"  

By the way, in Iowa, we don't say creek.  We say crick.

It will be nice to see these Lynas projects appear even after he's gone. So sad but such a gift.

Love the hobo pic and your music enhances the feeling.   I hear trains.
