Would You Like Dorks With That?

Would You Like Dorks With That?

After being stuck in really bad traffic for over an hour on my way home the other night, I wearily stopped off at a Carl’s Jr for a quick bite and some desperately-needed caffeine. Upon ordering and sitting down to await my meal, I heard some loud, oddly excited voices nearby. “HA HA HAAA! I...

A week or so ago, I was home by myself getting a few errands done while the wife and kid were away for the night. I had invited a friend over to watch a game, and was putting dishes away. I glanced out the window to see if my friend had arrived, (he was going to...

Beard No Beard, the legend grows

On Friday night my younger brother relayed a VERY interesting story about our favorite local bearded bike rider. My little brother does a ton of driving for his job, and just this last Friday he was out in Palo Cedro for the day. Sometime in the mid afternoon, he stopped into a convenience store to...

“BLLK” Revisited

Last night while on our way to stay with my wife’s folks in Sacramento, we stopped to have dinner in Vacaville. We were a little pressed for time, so we pulled in to the Wendy’s there for a quick bite. As soon as we parked, I realized that it was the very place where the...

Wehlcum to Wahlgreens!

Ok, this is a bit random, but I felt like I had to post something. Just last week my younger brother and our significant others, made a quick trip to the Pacific Northwest. We were spending most of our time in Portland (managed to visit a fellow MAL member Fernando) it was a low key...

TEN YEARS.

Believe it or not, Mis Amigos Locos turned ten yesterday. Yes, this crazy thing has been with us for a full decade. You guys have made this a lot of fun, and reading through our posts here reminds me of some of the reasons why we are ‘amigos’ in the first place. We all share...
An Unusual Request

An Unusual Request

Yesterday while en route to Redding, my lovely wife and I saw an unusual sign in the back window of an RV. You may need to click on the image to see why this is noteworthy. Was this a joke played by mischievous youngsters? The guy driving the RV seemed normal enough, not the type...
Tin Foil Hats in Northern California

Tin Foil Hats in Northern California

While cleaning up our little home office the other day, I came across something that brought back some funny memories. Back in late November of 2011, my wife and I were doing our annual post Thanksgiving tradition of tracking down Christmas Trees with the in-laws. It’s a fun tradition, and recently it’s been rather easy...
Silent Onlooker: The Story of Numb John

Silent Onlooker: The Story of Numb John

This one is long overdue. As most of you Amigos remember, during the first couple of years of my college career (1992-1993) I lived at a JC in Rocklin called Sierra College. Though I didn’t think so at the time, in retrospect it was actually a pretty decent place. I’ve explained previously why I was...

Technically Not Homeless

Technically Not Homeless

I spotted this unique structure the other day at an intersection downtown where panhandlers usually hang out. Apologies for the terrible photo, I took it from the car while waiting at the stoplight. It’s one of those plastic playhouses for little kids, covered with junk and held together with string. I’m not sure what those...
