    Opening the box had a definite Corleone feel to it, that surprising moment when you flip the heavy wooden lid and there's a head looking at you.

    I'm learning more by the minute. Moments ago my wife showed me some photos from that era that came along with The Head, there was J. Allen Hynkek (the man was ultra big in UFO investigation on behalf of the military..he was hired to debunk everything, in fact he came to acknowledge there was a lot of unexplained stuff supported by American military witnesses) cavorting with my wife's family dog... heady days those (ha).

    And he moves to the top of the list of DBR folks I want to meet. I'll spread mulch if it gets me an invite.

    Iím a little concerned budwom has been radio silent the rest of the day. We may have a Nic Cage National Treasure situation on our hands.

    I think he could kill people with mulch. Not concerned about him. At all.

    beer drinking did not commence until 5:30, so I can't blame the beer (ultimately it was two Double Bags from Long Trail). The head is fully deployed in the garden now, haven't even begun to leaf thru the nine large photo albums behind me.

    The backstory (should anyone be interested) is that my wife's father was an astrophysicist educated at Ohio State...when the satellite era began in 1957, the U.S. (Harvard Smithsonian) set up a bunch of satellite tracking stages, and my wife's father was appointed to run the one in southern Spain (Cadiz). Interesting time, lots of famous people like Hynek (also a Buckeye) and Sagan were around, Spain was still under Franco, a fascist state, but it was luxurious for Americans who lived like kings...
    My wife got to live like a little princess, became fluent in Spanish, on many weekends they'd put her in a donkey cart and haul her off to the bullfights...definitely a different era.

    what's kind of funny is that it's hemlock...Shakespeare was onto this centuries ago.
