Monday 14 May 2001
Your editor made his first visit to the Price Chopper which is
rather a nuthouse with stockers guiding electric forklifts
equipped with horns.
Tuesday 15 May
Today is Election Day in the Town of Oxford, Established 1713.
One UPS package arrived for Bud_Light.
Wednesday 16 May
Jim and Bud were heard at the Webster Five ATM.
Two Priority Mail packages arrived for Bud_Light.
WPX had digital TV cable installed with three new boxes and 901
channels which she was demonstrating with a new long remote
control. One channel is rap.
Our Bud_Selectman has graciously retired after saying a final
"goodnight Gracie" and publicly turned-in the Town beeper to
Without debate Bud and Bud_light were unanimously re-appointed as
Oxford Civil Defense police restricted to recreation areas (in
the event that citizens are picnicking during war???).
No postcard from Bud_Light yet..
Thursday 17 May
Happy birthday to Bud_KEG!
Our Head_Bud must have had a hard day since he stated, "I wish I
had a job at McDonald's." Furthermore Bud's Dunkin' Donuts shop
is down for renovations or something.
The USA's first lowercase president Blythe-Clinton was egged in
Friday 18 May
According to "The Shopper" the 20-screen-theater sign has been
erected on the site of the former Ray Farm. (Your editor still
would not hold breath waiting to buy tickets.)
Saturday 19 May
The OTW lawn was mowed aboard the Allis-Chalmers B-207 which ran
fine in dusty cndx. (During last year's setback we recall that
some laughed at the classic marque because of its age. Being a
good ol' American product you know that something is running and
the swivel joint in the center of the frame makes for an
interesting ride which you won't get on a John Deere!)
No postcard nor other means of communication has been received by
the Bud_Log commemorating Bud_Light's vacation. This is
understandable but even Marty got zilch.
For good luck Norm sent up the attached image FOURLEAF.JPG which
rare clover was not easy to find. Now there is dedication to
locate and forward this to the Bud_Log.
Sunday 20 May
The Bud_Net was plagued by RF noise in the center of Oxford but
was carried on by WB3CUU/1 using the Ten-Tek's noise blanker with
WA3KEY and N3CRP in the Keystone State.
Jim's computer began turning itself OFF so he purchased a new
Compaq 766MHz on sale.
Bud reported that the IPG cooling tower is returning 58-degree
water to the building so was pleased. Now a "particle counter"
is to be added to deal with "3 microns". Your editor loves to
hear people speak high tech like that. It was learned that the
particle guy at Insmell was dubbed "Particle Pat".
At ~2300 Bud_Light popped up on Instant Messenger so is back from
vacation. Check out MVC-015S.JPG to see a funny-looking Hog in
