The Argue Thread

Yup. The comics from that period are simply amazing. I'm glad I survived the experience. My buddy and I darn near got run over by a Muni bus that ran the light close by where we crossed Market Street to get to the theatre. I noticed him starting to run 3/4 across the street. I barely made it to the curb, and I heard the zipper pull on my jacket as it went tink, tink, tink down the side of the bus as I hit the curb. Just a little too close for comfort. But hey, the movie was well worth the time...

Being in the Navy on an aircraft carrier and participating in two cruises off Vietnam, not so much. . Survival is a GOOD thing, IMHO.

I had an ex-girlfriend who moved to Haight-Ashbury in 1973 or '74 with another ex-girlfriend because they wanted to live the hippie life. They were years too late and maybe not too smart since they didn't check that out (they were ex-girlfriends after all). Later one married and even later divorced a doctor in Santa Barbara and the other was last seen by a friend (who could have been a girlfriend, but I was too dumb to realize it and take up the offer) waiting tables in Walla Walla. I've never been in Walla Walla, Santa Barbara or the Haight and I'm not even trying to avoid ex-girlfriends.

Regardless (and that 'graph was easy to disregard which would be regard-
less), is this now the Agreeable Thread?

Speaking of Zapps, if you haven't have their chips, better get some now. To die for if you need some munchy ambiance.

I am back from the Key's. Had a great time. My back did quit hurting after I got there. As for my sandals, it was a good thing I had a back up strap on mine. I was kayaking at low tide and got stuck. After getting out and trying to pull the thing out, my foot with the sandals on sunk in about 10 inches. Flip Flop would still be there.

And GENE, the hippy chicks I had as girlfriends could have kicked your girlfriends butt.

Agreeable threads are for sissys.

Chef's pants are traditionally checkered. The pattern helps to hide minor stains. Chef's aprons don't go all the way to the floor because they'd be tripping hazards, thus some stains end up on the lower pants legs instead of the apron.

Paisley would probably hide stains better, but paisley prints are for sissies.

During the Summer of Love I was hanging out with one of my hippyish friends in Bronx Park. One of us, don't remember who said "hey wanna go to a concert upstate?" "Sure", I was up for anything in those days so we walked to the Bronx River Parkway and started hitching. We got to the 3 m long Tappen Zee Bridge on the NYS Thruway and kept getting pushed back by the NY State Police. Not seeing any kind of vessel to commandeer, and not thinking swimming across the Hudson was a good idea we got on the NY Central RR back to the city. This is my Woodstock story.

Listen to it. Zep is well known for "borrowing" songs

A good one! I had a similar experience [not] going to Woodstock. Nice new Avatar by the way . . . some of the shops in the village of Woodstock still sell tons of signs and T-shirts with similar reminders of the era . . .

Peace

[Question -- is "not arguing" actually "arguing" with the directive to argue?]

Only if you're belligerent about it…

Arguing is a matter of attitude as well as content. Just as one can disagree without arguing, one can argue without disagreeing, depending on HOW you state your case. This is the art of rhetoric…

What I get a kick out of is when so called internet experts start disagreeing or arguing. That can get very entertaining as they fan boys choose up sides. Usually it is about hitch or tires. But on Airforums any subject can be augury worthy.

The second part of that statement is pure nonsense.
