¿existen los señores de la droga en su tienda? And Picnic

As to be expected, once word got out about the $2 million reward, Tijuana was teeming with people of all ages and sizes and sexes in search of the drug lords. I found one suspicious character. When I showed him my handcuffs he got really excited. But no. Turned out he just wanted to do some cosmetic work (on my car? On me? A package deal?)

Don't forget the Saturday blogger picnic in Altadena. Starts at noon. If I haven't caught at least one drug lord by then, my return trip will be both business and pleasure. I intend to snoop around the local Rite-Aid. (Duh, if you're looking for drugs, where do you go? The drugstore. If you're looking for a lord, where do you go? The church across the street from the drugstore.)



(As Tim at altadenablog continues to remind everyone, that's him -- on the far left.)There will be contraband -- SC makes a mean, mean, mean Sangria.

  1. Ok, I'll be there. But I'm not chasing drug lords on my day off.

  2. Please be safe. Wear a bulletproof vest and bring the sangria. It can't hurt.

  8. Reading Ken Mac's comment, I swear, I heard Bogie.

    Funny, in a moment of fantasy today I calculated the drive time to California: whoo-eee!

    The thought rose from a reminder to self to wish you guys a good time, and that I would think of you all and join in a toast, in spirit at least, to our shared
    passion for creative expression.

    But you went and beat me to it, dint'cha? How very thouthful you really are.

    Hey, maybe after the weekend check out some renhai-I'm always looking for collaborators.

    Give Al and Pheeb a hug for me.

  10. The hiker is going rogue in Mexico.

    Somewhere I read that Mademoiselle G will be attending the picnic, bringing raisinettes and a miniature bottle of beefeater.

    Virg is roadtripping naked.

    These acts are hard to follow.

  11. Come as yourself, Laurie. Nobody can top that.

    When I look at all the spectacularly interesting people around here I think, "I'll bring my husband and my dog."

  12. Is your 60's jones kicking in again? I told you to get offa that stuff. Did you listen? NOOOO. Anywho, that's my turf. Don't make me have to talk to you again.

    ReplyDelete
  13. You can keep your turf, 3dot, I'm jonsing for the 1860s; they knew how to live, didn't they?

    Petrea, make sure Boz is suitably attired.

    We'll toast you too, Willie.

  14. You got to get serious ‘bout yo’ life. There will probably be cartel members attending. I’ll bring my posse the guard the perimeter. Don’t talk to them, and don’t look directly in their eyes. They don’t like that. You might miss me. I'll be wearing my 60's afro, braided with summer of love beads.

  15. Boz will be nekkid. I've got enough trouble getting John to wear clothes. Boz won't make eye contact with the posse but I can't promise anything about John.

    My WV is sated.

  16. 3dot, and your muumuu? Wait, that isn't right... your dashiki? It'll be tough, but I'll try to find you.

  19. So, you're taking a break from bounty hunting duties? Thought I would attend pic-a-nic in spirit so I PayPaled Miss Havisham $5.00 for Oreos/something suitably decadent (for $5.00???).
    Virginia, if you show up naked and someone gives me proof, well, I'm supposed to be in New Orleans on Sunday and Monday and I'll streak Bourbon St in return.
