HELTER SKELTER!!


Last night was the Paul McCartney concert for us yokels here in Des Moines. We had the worst seats ever...

but thankfully there was some very large monitors that aired a spectacular video version of the show! It saved the night.

Paul was really on - did not see any age in his voice or step. We got to hear a majority of the great Beatles tunes that we were hoping for... and a few from Wings that sounded pretty darn good live. The real excitement came in the second encore (he did 3) when they fired up Helter Skelter and did it in style. It was loud - hard - and amazing. Paul noted that this tour was the first time he had ever done the song live in the US.


Aside from some cheesy crowd butt kissing... it was a spectacular show!!

Weekend is upon us.. Sheriff is gone off with Nut Flopper for a wedding/Halloween extravaganza in Chicago... I am sure his update on Monday will be envious. We are throwing a little Halloween party of our own this weekend... check out the game we are going to play... quite similar to the scavenger hunt we did for my birthday a few years back.. yowza!


Have a good Halloween kats!!

I can't get there. I had perviously commited to help some freinds host their halloween party. But I can send someone by to blow up your driveway in my place. It will be JUST like your birthday.

I feel a story coming on...

HA! Oh Deric... that was classic.

Gourd had the ingenius idea of building a fire in the middle of the driveway at my mother's house... unfortunately, he did his job faaaar too well. An explosion occured and cement chunks were embedded in several peoples uncomfortable spots.

Humor was abound.

WHERE'S THE DAMN MONKEY!?!??!

Kern said...

Holy cow, guys! That's pretty wild...we didn't get around to blowing anything up at Kern Returns last year. The closest we got to a blowout is when Urnotme's pants ripped in his bathing suit area and we thought his man charms might pop out. To our great relief, nothing of the sort happened.

Crisis averted.

That pumpkin hunt sounds so fun!

Oh, Damn!! I forgot about the monkey!!! I think the monkey is in Lawrence KS. I think. It was stolen from me, and then it was stolen from the person who stole it from me. But I think I know who has it. It will be point number 12 on the scavenger hunt.

OK. But Kern. The driveway thing was not my fault. It was not MY idea to build a fire in the driveway. Jed had the idea to just dump logs on the driveway and poor kerosene over them to start a fire. I was the one who used my boy scout skills to build a propper fire. I beleive that fire provided true warmth to all right up until the time it exploded.

Kern said...

Jed likes it hot. And explosive, apparently.

I believe Deit when he says that he used proper Boy Scout technique. The idea of a fire in the driveway seems a little on the ACME side, but that's cool.

I am unclear on the monkey talk.

Deit Heimley said...

OK. What blew up is the cement underneath the fire. You see the fire I built was very hot, and it actually got so hot that it buckled the cement and blew a hole about three inches deep and six inches in diameter. The bad part were the limbs of fire hurling end over end toward those unfortunate enough to have tried to warm themselves near the fire. Nobody was hurt severely except with laughter.

Oh, and I don't remember a monkey. Yeah, I think I was thinking of something else. There was no monkey. Don't think about the monkey. No good will come from talking about that monkey. Or I mean nothing would .. you know if it ... it actually existed. Right. That's it.

OK. Explosion not my fault. Monkey does not exist. Just keep that in mind this weekend.
