We Interrupt This Blog For A Trip Back To Nature

  As you may have noticed, Penwasser Place has been running at reduced capacity the past couple of days.  The first week of August is traditionally time for the "Penwasser Brothers Campfest" at an undisclosed location in Rhode Island.

  Our wives do not accompany us.  Apparently, we fart, scratch, and tell bawdy stories.  There is some drinking involved, as well.

  I should be able to read your blogs and comment on them, but I won't really be able to write any wickedly funny material (as if I ever did) for at least a few days.  The reason being is that all I'll have is a smart phone.  I can get away with using one finger to comment, but to write a post, I need two.

   In any event, I should return sometime next week.  Unless I get arrested.

  That bathroom's a long way away, you know.

I sure hope that tree is still there.

  1. You guys have a blast. Make that many blasts. Especially if you eat beans.

    1. We didn't need beans. But we made sure to stay downwind from the fire. Who'd have thought peanuts would have that effect?

    1. Our wives had absolutely no interest. I think they enjoyed the break.

  5. Don't forget to burn at least one thing valuable and blame it on the beer!

    1. We threw my brothers Trivial Pursuit into the fire. I'm not really sure why we did that. But, beer is as likely as any other reason.

    1. Or a raccoon wanted to use "Little Al" as a play toy.

  8. And no lighting farts; they might emit a beautiful blue hue but the practice infringes health-and-safety legislation.

    1. At my age I'm reluctant to fart, willy nilly. I'm afraid of an O Ring malfunction.

    1. The sad part is, now that it's over, I can see the end of summer.

  11. Can't wait to hear all about this Al, sounds like it's going to be seriously bad ass, the Penwasser boys are coming to a forest near you, I can't work out if the forest has anything to fear or not, have a blast mate!

  12. I have had my fill of camping... but you boys have a good time. And just be sure and check the tree for squirrels first... they hate it when you pee on them. Or, so I've heard.

    1. I'm real careful not to pee on squirrels. They like nuts, you know.

  13. Wow dude and now I truly understand how you related to that tree on my site. I will add that I don't mean you're actually related to the tree. Then again, maybe you are a bit of a tree-hugger. I'm going to see if my illustration has been pissed on. Crappy, I mean happy camping and hopefully things aren't too in tents....

    1. We camped at a different site, so I didn't use that particular tree. But I found another one which worked just as well. And had a knothole which was waist high.

  14. I look forward to the after-stories, and I'm glad I'm no where near that undisclosed location in Rhode Island.

    1. Now I can tell. It was at Burlingame State Park in Westerly. I didn't want to reveal my location because the paparazzi can be such a pain.

  16. I'm jealous. I haven't got to go camping yet this year, so get bug-bitten and sloshed in the forest for me!

  18. Oh man, what is with people and camping? No technology, no wifi, no internet, no plumbing, pollen and insects...

    Not for me.

  19. But you can pee on a tree. That's gotta count for something.

  20. Stop harassing that tree!!

    Hope your camping trip is a great one, Al!! I can see my boys getting away to enjoy time like that when get older.

  21. Be careful! You don't any mosquitoes attacking that thing...

  22. Ok so I posted on the tent post first and made a crack about planking. I see now that I should have saved that comment for this post. Maybe I can come up with something re - woodpeckers... but that would just be obvious.

    Moral of the story - read posts in order from oldest to newest.

    1. Woodpecker....doesn't that have something to with Pinocchio?

  23. Sounds relaxing. Except for sleeping in a tent on the ground and all the mosquitoes. But, you drink enough and it just doesn't matter. :)

    1. Mosquito bites can lead to some nasty swelling. That's why I walked around the campsites with my pants off.
