The caller who never got through

Some say suspicion surrounds the Wisconsin Public Radio program, The West Side, and it’s guest, the speaker, Andrew Dane, whom witnesses say “stacked the deck” loading WPR call-in lines with callers favorable to his position during his segment.  I say outrage surrounds it.  One caller who we will call Harson Conaker so that they can remain anonymous tried to call into the radio show.  When asked what his question was, he was denied.  I thought the question was appropriate being about food, one of my favorite subjects.  All I wanted to ask was:  if pizza's "organic properties" were better prepared when the pizza is baked in the oven upside down.  I'm just saying, this Andrew, who is on the radio and talking about food, who must be a doctorate of foodology, must have the lowdown on how to seep the good stuff out of that favorite Italian delicacy.  I guess to truly know the answer, I must bake a pizza upside down.  I can only imagine the jubilation on family's face when I surprise them when they sit down and I open the oven and the sweet aroma of the upside-down-baked pizza fumes go wafting into their faces.  I can only imagine ...

The Plot Thickens

Local Freaks and Geeks are buzzing about the sudden disappearance of Dane and family, questioning whether or not fleeing the state was the answer...," We're thinking he may try a name change..." Speculated one local freak.


Event Nears, Shirts Available

Excitement is building as the Freaks and Geeks camping event nears. The first of the t-shirts rolled off the press just after noon Thursday and straight into the hands of Aimee Abbott. "I think this shirt is Anwen's, but it looks great on me, so I will take it!" she was heard to say.

The shirts do look great!  A wonderful design by our own freak ...or is she a geek? Joanna Dane.  And a good job of printing by Chippewa Falls version of Evil Kinevil.

Around the Abbott house, lists are being compiled. A series of yellow stick notes stuck to the door of things that must not be forgotten.  Do we have bug spray?  Where is the sun screen?  Who left all this mud in the cooler?  It is a flurry of events around here as Thursday storms and tornados loom on the horizon.


It was the Law of the Sea, they said. Civilization ends at the waterline. Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top.
