    all that while spinning a rope.

    A couple decades ago, when I was hospitalized for depression, took a field trip to Will Rogers Park in the Los Angeles area.

    The front lawn is a polo ground. The house is an unassuming ranch type, but big; over 30 rooms. The living room walls were covered w/ animal heads and skins.

    There was a mysterious skin no one could figue out. Turned out it had once belonged to a kangaroo. The guide said Will didn't shoot things. Fans sent him all that stuff.

    Was it Will who said if dogs didn't go to heaven, he didn't want to go there either?

    near Barrow , Alaska. That's a few hours up the road from Fairbanks, where we used to live. A cold, dark place this time of year.....although, they've just got the sun back for a few minutes a day. The sun is not visible to Barrow residents from the end of November to the end of January....the sky just lightens up a bit for a short while, then it's back to dark.
