Dance Master Bob

September 4th, 2014 | Posted in Nutjob Hills | Comments Off on Dance Master Bob

These “Bob rumors” are strangely persistent.  In spite of the fact that we all know that none of them are possible.

Yet here we have another rumormonger trying to sell the idea that Bob has become a “dance master” and has gone into business as a master of dance instructors world wide.  One recent glaringly inaccurate version of this rumor states that Bob recently opened a new studio that is the first dance lessons santa monica has seen ever in a local studio.

Frankly I doubt this.  Even if this rumor were true, which it is not, I’m sure that there are now and have been in the past, many other dance studios in santa monica.

All that aside.  Not only does Bob not dance.  With the exception of the various and sundry gyrations performed by the cast of “Babes of Star Trek Gone Wild”, he has said many times that he hates dancing.

I do some more re-design work on the launcher and send it up on an un-manned test flight.  A flight with surprising results.

Odd Shopping List

There’s a lot you could say about Harry.  All of it true and most of it frankly confusing.  “Harry is as Harry does” folks around here say.  I’ve lived here going on twenty years now and I still don’t understand what that’s supposed to mean.

Then again, understanding Harry or things about Harry isn’t something anyone does.  For example recently he was in the Nutjob Hills Diner with one of those really thick spiral notebooks.

He’d sit and stare at it for five or twenty minutes and suddenly pick up a pencil and write something down.

He kept this up for over an hour.  Finally one of the waitresess couldn’t stand it any longer.  She just had to know what it was he was writing.

The next time she went to that part of the diner she made it a point to find a way to be busy at the table behind Harry.  The next time he started writing she got up and looked at his notebook as she slowly passed.

double cheeseburger
cereal – heat shrink cutters
yellow cake mix
carburetor – four barrel

As she should have expected.  Knowing the answer to her question only raised a dozen more.

I take another look at spaceplanes and then talk about why I’ve taken something of a break from KSP lately while I re-design the launch vehicle used for the moon flights.

Ok so the moon landing went ok and now it’s time to return to Kerbin.  Ideally without crashing, burning up, or running out of fuel too soon.
