An Island: Somewhere

Looking on the bright side, at least this week the Lemming left a picture we could post. Next week there may be more: then again, maybe not. Norbert Nerdly has cleared his schedule, just in case. (December 18, 2015)

Beware the Droste?!

You may recall that Narcissus-X filled in for the Lemming last August: with characteristically turgid turbidity, but surprisingly few penguin references.

That was then, this is now, and the Lemming is wondering what to make of the latest Narcissus-X post: which included this — odd — image.

Elton Baum's Golf Cart

From the Loonfoot Falls Chronicle-Gazette, 2008:

When gas went over three dollars a gallon in late 2006, Elton Baum decided to do something about it.

"I couldn't keep the price down," he said with a grin, "but I could do something about how much I used. Now, I don't go into town with the truck, unless it's for something really big."

Even a small car uses some gasoline, so Mr. Baum looked around for an alternative.

"About a year ago, I found a golf cart. Trouble was, I couldn't drive it on the roads except in daylight, and in good weather. Makes sense, but I wanted something where I wouldn't be stuck in town, or out here, if it started raining."

Elton Baum's golf cart looks about the same as it did when he got it, except for an extra bar across the back and license plates.

It's what you don't see that makes it special.

Under the seats, ten golf cart batteries take five or six hours to recharge. "Four, if I'm lucky," Elton said. He doesn't use a pedal generator to recharge his cart. "I thought about it," he said, "but … life is too short to spend that much time cycling."

A beefed-up suspension and high-performance motors boosted the golf cart's top speed to about 40 miles an hour, so Elton doesn't need a slow-moving vehicle sign. He does, though, generally wear a motorcycle helmet when he drives. It's safer, but that's not the main reason.

"It gets breezy, driving with no windshield."

We do All the Work - - -

"We do all the work, they get all the credit...."

"...How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child!..." Go Albany! Go Neril! Go, team, go!

The Lemming just got back, and already feels like taking another vacation.

Posts not even the Lemming thinks are related to this. Then again, maybe they are:
