    Growing up in a suburb of the ROC, my family were members of a little ski club called Ski Valley. One chairlift, one T-bar, about a dozen trials and a cute little lodge. Even had a run called Yodeler. Spent many, many days lapping the place. Loved it. I mean ... I LOVED IT! Still remember the day I skied the lift line from the top without falling. These are the things that make a life I tell ya.

    However, it closed down at least 15 years ago and became overgrown and broken down. Until some dude buys it a couple of years ago and keeps it all for himself. Went by it on my bike ride today.

    And he's got a little fleet of groomers. No idea if the T-bar is functional. The chairlift is DEFINITELY not functional.

    Honestly, why not? He looks like he’d fit right in. No gloves, heater.
    Correct disposition.

    Saw him at Thirsty's last Tues. Guy gets around. Plus he put on some serious winter weight.

    (might have been the guy who cuts my hair but who can say for sure)

    Didn’t make it to Thirstys much (more of a JD Oxfords guy) , but my college did host a happy hour there before graduation.

    Got so fucked up that I tried to walk back to my city apartment, by way of the canal and river, in a downpour. Good times

    so thanks to you fine folks I question news reports these days
    Associated Press
    Couple: Man has tossed used cups in their yard for 3 years
    Sun, April 18, 2021, 7:41 PM
    LAKE VIEW, N.Y. (AP) — An upstate New York couple may have finally solved the mystery of who's been tossing used coffee cups in their front yard for nearly three years.

    Edward and Cheryl Patton told The Buffalo News they tried mounting a camera in a tree in front of their home in Lake View to catch the phantom litterer. But it wasn’t until some neighbors got involved recently and followed a minivan and jotted down its license plate number that there was a break in the case.

    After Edward Patton called police, they waited and pulled over a vehicle driven by 76-year-old Larry Pope, who Cheryl Patton said had once worked with her and had had disagreements with her over union issues.

    Pope was charged with harassment and ticketed for throwing refuse onto a roadway.

    “I found it very hard to believe that someone I knew would do something like that, especially at his age,” Cheryl Patton told The News.

    The Pattons said the littering has stopped since Pope was pulled over.

    A message was left at a phone number listed for Pope on Sunday.

    That is perfect upstate. Casual, rude, effective, confrontational and caustic.

    Plus, the guy had the time to do it. I feel like I could harbor grudges if I was less busy.

    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.
