My calendar at work this year has pictures of Japanese mountains: one for each month. I recognize Mt. Fuji, the Japanese Alps, Mt. Tanigawa , and the mountain surrounded marshlands of Oze .
(the last 2 are about 30 minutes away from where I live)
The other 8 mountains look scenic and impressive, but I have no idea where they are.
I’m kind of disappointed.
I was hoping Mt. Splash, Mt. Big Thunder, and Mt. Space were going to be on it.
note: I’ve Googled the mountains of West Virginia and there is no Mt. Mama! … John Denver is full of crap! … I kind of liked him in Gilligan’s Island though.
double note: if it wasn’t for Mt. Kilimanjaro, I’d think Africa was flat.
triple note: if it wasn’t for Heidi and “The Sound of Music“, I wouldn’t know anything about Switzerland at all … except for that Nazi gold, cheese, chocolate, cuckoo clocks, neutrality, army knives, and that Disneyland ride they invented.
quadruple note: the photo has nothing to do with mountains. I just thought those that saw the little red car before would like to be updated on what the owner has been acquiring.
Today I said the word “dink” for the first time in about 20 years. It still sounds funny!

I am a mountain:
best seen from a distance and …
if you stand on the top of me you can see a long way.
note: if there is a “Mt. Me” somewhere I bet they sell a lot of t-shirts.
double note: why isn’t it Mt. Splash, Mt. Big Thunder, Mt. Space, Mt. Witch, Mt. Big Rock Candy, Mt. Dew …
triple note: I guess all mountains are named after someone … probaby Mr. Mountain. (old joke)
“What’s the matter Horn?” I asked my friend Horn.
“I’ve never killed a man Jaro” I said to my friend Jaro.
“I never rest” I’ve never said.
quintuple note: is there a “Mt. Everestaurant” in Nepal/Tibet? … cause there should be!
notes to myself #103
The albums lying around the house while you’re a kid will stay with you forever. Jim Croce is timeless. Time In A Bottle is well spent … sometimes.
