FOR ENTERTAINMENT by HAROLD

A piece out of Harolds letter today,

Today I began making a papermach spider and roach. Using coffee to color it, paper, headphone wire and shoestrings with a bit of water I have created busg that at first glance, look realistic. It will take a couple of days to dry, plus I have a few little minor things to do, add string etc. When I`m finished the fun shall begin! In the past my bugs have created laughter - always at someones expense but always in fun. It is good to laugh in here. What is real fun to see is the tatooed, musclebound badasses, the tough guys jump and holler over a bug!!
My spiders will look like adult Taranalas when I`m finished. The Roach is about 3" long and about 1" wide in the middle.
The things I do to entertain myself...

A RIDE WITH MY BIKE by HAROLD

I remember it well, as if it vere just over
Instead of years ago
Check the tank, oil
Dust the seat
Straddle it, grasping the handlebars
Left boot puts up the kickstand
Standing there for a moment, anticipation
Fingers on the choke
Right foot giving slow kicks
Crack the throttle, hard kicks
A pop, kick again
It fires sluggishly
Less choke more throttle
It rumbles to life
Left hand clutch in
Left foot pushes down, first gear
Crack the throttle a few times
Feel the vibrations
The beast is alive again
Sitting back feeling the power
Clutch out, throttle twisted
Feet up, it moves
With a roar it`s gone
Clutch in, second gear
Third gear, fourth gear
The beast is on the prowl
Blastin` down the road
Feeling the wind, feeling free

CRAIG`S OPINION

Today I received a letter from Craig where he asked me how my blog is..

"How are your blogs? I would like to be involved in it, but, have no idea on what to say?!"

Now I think I will ask him to write a bit about his study, that would be intresting cause it`s about a very urgent topic. Enviromental science is probably one of the most needed sciences in the future and as far as I noticed....it`s quite a bit to learn.
The last essay he had to write was about "Flooding" which happens more every year, we all know that. So hopefully I will be able to put in something of his work soon...
