“Lies, Half-truths and Stuff That We Made Up”
What We Got Here
An announcement of a charity auction, and something ripped from the pages of a calendar.
’Bout 14 Miles Northeast of Pisgah
An announcement from Crispy Critter Patrick Joseph:
There will be a charity auction in Soldier, Iowa on November 18th for some friends of mine that are having huge medical bills to pay. I am donating my copy of the American Gramaphone 45 RPM record “Old Home Filler-Up an' Keep-on-a-Truckin' Café” (that’s how it’s spelled on the 45’s label) that I’ve had since 1974. I will also include a CD copy that I created from the 45. Since Soldier is close to Pisgah, where the cafe is located, it might draw some local interest. American Gramaphone will also be donating a couple gift baskets to the auction.
The auction will be at the community building in Soldier. The luncheon will start at 11:30 AM and the auction at 12:30 PM.

One-Tenth of One Percent of the Places You Need To See Before You Die
On the desk across the room from mine, amongst such curious items as a dragon-shaped incense burner, a crescent-moon desk lamp and an empty can of Diet Coke (Just for the taste of it! Diet Coke!), there’s one of those “Page-a-Day” calendars with a theme of 1,000 Places To See Before You Die.
Coincidentally, the “Place To See” for this past September 24th has a connection to C.W. McCall:
Here’s the text, if you can’t read it:
1,000 Places To See Before You Die Calendar
Durango and Silverton Railroad
Train fans should hop on board Colorado’s Durango and Silverton puffing, vintage steam locomotive, which makes several trips a dap along a 45-mile scenic route climbing a 3,000-foot ascent through glacier-carved valleys, along narrow canyon bridges, and through impassable stretches of the dense San Juan forest and mountains.
