Billy Dog n Pinky 12/29/15


We're off to see the Wizard, The wonderful Wizard, cause Billy Dog has a new trick.

You might remember that I wrote about how I built a lovely Dog Pen, because Pinky n Puddy are runners.
Well it's also been great for just throwing the dogs out n not having to think about them getting into trouble. 
That's until Ole Billy Dog figured something out.

Billy dog first started jumping into the pen with Pink n Puddy just for the fun of it.
Basically a straight 3 foot jump with a 4 ft drop. No problem.
Well tonight I threw her out cause she was making puking sounds.

Kathy was outside, I went to let Billy in n she was gone.
Called her n I got to watch her jump back in the pen.
The most graceful thing I've seen in a good while.

Billy Dog at a full run, have I mentioned how fast she is?
Leaps off the porch like a launching ramp, front feet hit the top of the wood fence to get that extra push n lands 6 foot into the pen. 
Just beautiful to watch, such grace of motion n athletic ability.

Kathy said Billy thinks she can fly.
Me, I know Billy Dog can fly, I've seen her do it.

Billy Dog is let's call it one of the most unique dogs I've ever shared time with.
19 horses, 1 Billy Dog. At times it's a pretty even match. Pain in the ass wise.
Though the grace of her motion is absolutely beautiful.
What a Knucklehead.

Billy Dog update. It's now been a couple of days n Billy just jumps that 4 ft fence whenever she want.
I'm in the office, Billy jumped into the dog pen so she could access the back door.
Oh, did I forget to mention, Billy Dog knows how to turn the knob on the back door n let herself into the house. 
Yeah, That Too.

Billy Dog is an unstoppable force of nature.
Billy is very optimistic and determined to make her mark. 

This coming year is probably the peak of Billy Dogs youth n athletic ability.
Should make for a fun year.

I prefer Big Red Dogs but I believe Billy Dog through sheer will power is going to become one of the most unique dogs I've ever had. Bill Loves with an open unshielded heart. 
To not return that love would be a sin. 

After all, What's a girl gotta do to get some love round here? 
It's a Bird, It's a Plane, Nope It's Billy Dog. 

Good Dog, Bad Dog

All puppies start out with a clean slate. 
It's people that create bad dogs. 
Want a good dog, do a good job raising it.

A picture of a snarling dog was posted on facebook.
I'm sure you could post a thousand.
What I'd like to see are the stupid people who created that dog.
It does not happen on it's own.

I've been working with dogs for almost 50 yrs.
You learn a lot along the way.
The different types of training methods.
Treats n praise or discipline n deception. 

I prefer cohabitation training.
Figure out what's important to each of you n try to find accommodation.
Billy dog likes to dig, well ok I can live with that.

I try to keep as much of the puppy as possible in the adult dog.
It makes for a more pleasant companion.

Puddy is a miniature Dachshund.
She lives with Pinky an albino Doberman, Billy Dog is a Great Dane, Proby a Bull Mastif
& Aunt lou a farm dog.
Three of the dogs are rescues. All my dogs have impeccable manners.
Puddy plays daily with dogs 20x her size.
They all know that to hurt Puddy is to hurt me, so far never happened.

You'd think n in some houses Puddy then would become a yappy nipper.
No sir re bob. Manners, you do not do that.
My dogs live very rich full lives. In exchange all I ask for is good manners.

Where a lot of people go wrong is that they think a good guard dog must be brutish n aggressive. 
Wrong, a good guard dog is one that loves unconditionally.
In a worst case you are asking a dog to maybe die defending you.
Tell ya what, that dog better love you n you better love that dog.

There is a special place in hell for people who abuse dogs. 

A special note to an old friend John Laspina who recently lost his best friend. 
John I feel very deeply for your loss.
When I lost Rudy I couldn't even talk about her for over a month without losing it.
All my best to you.
Your dog is now playing with Boomie, Rudy, Soupy, Mo Mo n Big in Doggie heaven.



There is a friendly spat about a dog that I've been linked to on facebook.

Dogs are not a sprint, they are a marathon.

You can teach a dog not to whatever very quick, but are you sure fast is what you want?

Each time you use fast you loose a little piece of the natural dog.

I prefer long conversations about a subject.
Currently Billy thinks heading down to play with the deer hunters is a good idea.
I catch on within 5 minutes n call her. Each time her punishment is she goes in the dog pen.
No more free Billy until after dark.

Table n counters as a safe place for objects.
God I long for those days. Top of the refrigerator is the only safe zone in our house.
Cookies or cakes on a counter? You might as well just give them to Billy.

Truth is Dogs settle at about 4 years old n your work finally comes together.
You want a dog with character, be patient. For years goes by real fast.

Picture Day

Who doesn't like a good Billy Dog post.
Bill asked me, am I gonna be more famous than Pez Outlaw?
Yes Billy Dog, you are more famous than Pez Outlaw.
Looka that you even have your own hashtag #billydog.
For all I know, you could even be trending.

Billy Dog update.
6-14-2016
So we are doing hay the other day.
Thanks again to, Joshua Glew, Heidi Jo Glew, Moriah Newman, Matt Newman, Laurie Svendsen n Kathy Glew over 1000 bales in 2 days

Billy Gets Airborne

Billy Dog likes to run around on top of the hay.
I'm working along n all of a sudden a blur of black flies by my head.
It was Billy dog getting airborne.

Another one. 
I'm up on the wagon tossing the hay off.
A job I was fired from rather quickly because I broke a bale.
I'm not bitter.
Anyway, 16 foot up in the air top of the wagon, there's Billy n me.
All of a sudden Billy decides she could make the jump.
I grabbed her ass before she got airborne again n tried to explain to her that 16 feet was just to high.
Didn't matter I broke a bale n both Billy n I got fired from the wagon.

The common belief was that Billy n I were foolin around to much.
With hay everything starts at the wagon n if the human n dog throwin the hay off are foolin around thing just go sideways.
So Billy n I got fired n played stacking hay.
Billy Dog says you can find a good game doin anything.
I agree.

Occurred to me that you haven't seen a good pic of Billy Dog since Skinny Bill of a year n a half ago.

So Billy Dog Picapalooza.
Quite a difference from Skinny Billy Huh.

Cart in pic below is a new one. 
Wheels are from a wheel chair.
Kinda an outstanding cart.
made from; wheel chair, baby crib n treadmill.

Ole Josh found the wheels by the side of the road.
You gotta have an eye to the possible.
Note the muscle tone in her back legs.




You ever notice how hard it is to get a pic of just one dog?
N yes these 2 dogs are half the reasons we do not have people just wander onto our property. Though when visitors do come both wait for direction as to acceptability.
Billy n Po stay in there yard but they watch intensely for unacceptable deviation.
You raise good dogs to have a strong sense of order.
They watch flow, tone n motion.
Good dogs key off you. 

Billy has now taken over for Rudy after a 4 year gap.
The dogs get spun up at night n it's Billy Dog who goes out with me to do patrol.
Billy gets about 10 ft out front of me n all her senses take over.
Nose to the air, ears alert n eyes surveying.
I had to wait a long time for her to be ready to take over, but Rudy would approve. 

I always knew Billy would get there.
Others had a lot of doubt.
Now everybody can see the dog I knew was in there.
Yes Billy Dog you are way more famous than Pez Outlaw.
#billydog

Billy has decided her job is to keep track of Mom. Good Billy Dog.
Personal note to John Laspina.
It took 4 years but I was able to find a new friend after Rudy passed.
Thing is, you have to be open because it may not be what you were expecting.
There is no way I was ever expecting Billy Dog.

OK Po, yes a pic of just you.
After Pez Outlaw, I intend to retire.

But Wait, There's More. #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw


Have you ever seen the guy on TV who for whatever reason his job has him around women in Bikini's. The guy looks at the camera n says, "I love my Job".
That's me out driving around on my tractor in 6 inches of mud, I love my job. 

I can be outside doing chores getting a bit tired, get on the tractor n start moving poo n my energy returns.
Like I've told you. I used to be a Jeep man, now I'm a tractor man.

Once a week doing chores with Billy Dog n Po an idea will start taking form in my head.
Problem is that there is no freedom until I can get back in here and write it down. Only then can my mind move on.
So we go from yesterday where my brain was fried n I sucked to this. WELCOME!

I know you've heard the phase less is more. Well so have I, actually I've had it said to me in one form or another so often that I thought maybe it was coined for use in my presence.

Kathy is always giving me the nod, hand signals or flat out OK moving on.

That's why when Jeff Maysh said are you ready for what's about to happen it kinda took me by surprise. The idea that folks might go crazy about me n actually want to talk to me or wonder what I think?

You see for a long time now in public I'm that homeless person on the curb with the coffee cup.
People avoid eye contact in a hope that if they don't look at me I won't try to talk to them.
Seriously all I need is the sign "Will Work For Food" and a busy intersection.
I'm that guy. What I'm not is the guy anybody willingly wants to talk to.

So Jeff Maysh, Am I ready for people to be swarming me wanting to talk to me n take my picture.
The real question is Jeff, Are they ready to talk to Me?
Oh by the way "Pictures Are Forbidden". I'm kinda one of those folks that thinks if you take a picture of me, you steal a piece of my soul.
People try taking pictures but my hand goes up like a perp walk.
Some guy who came here wanted to take a picture of me on my tractor. He said, Why not it's just a picture. He got my back and a FIRM NO!

But you know othern that, whatever if you think that's actually what you really want.
It would be different to talk to people who are under the missread that they really want to hear it.
Topsy Tervy World. Cats marrying Dogs, The apocalypse is here.

My large bolt cutters arrived today.
The postal lady n I were laughing at how they'd only be good for robbing small banks. 
Stop it, that was a joke.
My new bolt cutters are for cutting snow chains to the size I need on my tractors rear tires. 

Unwrapped Bolt cutters n they are awesome, just like the ones SWAT Teams use on TV.
They were only $50.00 but saw that they were on Sears for 79.95 regularly $150.00.
Too Cool.

Cranky Old Bastard ALERT! #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

What do you think, should old men have "Cranky Old Bastard ALERT!" warning labels?


Dogs n Horses Yes but No Children Allowed.
I don't know why I should have to keep saying this, but apparently I do.

I will not follow anyone on twitter whose page image is a picture of a child.
To me it goes beyond not being in good taste.
I'm a 64 year old man. If the image on your twitter page does not at least look 20, I can not follow you back.

If your homepage image is of a horse or a dog, no problem.
If your home page image is of a child, No.

I also can not follow back any page on facebook or twitter that's in Arabic.
I  have no idea what's being said and I just can not take the chance.

Oh yeah n no porn or excessive cursing. 
Yes I screen each persons page that follows me.

I also shy away from advert pages. Like buy follower pages.
Only real people please.  No Twitter Follower Farms.

Oh yeah there's one other type of page I do not follow back because it's a waste of time.
When I screen your page one of the first things I check is the ratio of follows to followers.
If you follow say 50 people but have 2,000 followers, I will not waste my time with a follow back.
You are just going to remove your follow after the follow back is given.

Other than that though I try to follow back any real people that follow me on twitter or facebook,
After I screen your page.

I will also admit to being confused by the huge number of twenty-something young women that follow me on twitter. 
My home page image:

If you're a twenty-something woman, why on earth would you follow that?

Somebody is cranky this morning?
Is there such a thing as cranky tweeting?

Box Of Puppies #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

Views from the Asylum are at times not a box of puppies.
Have you ever felt like your sitting in a ditch trying to splice wires back together.
Darkness closing fast, time running out.
You get there but it's a patch job n you know it.
Welcome to the Asylum.

Every month when the moon is full my old friend depression comes to visit for a few days. It may be coincidence but I really don't think so anymore.

I finally started noticing the relationship about a decade ago. It would appear that when the moon is full n at it's strongest, that it just yanks on my brain. Yanks on your brain is a medical term.

So don't expect to find me in the cheering section over the coolness of 2 full moons in one month. The second full moon in one month being the definition of Blue Moon.

The good news, if there is any in depression. When I was younger this monthly depression could last a week. Now one day into it, the day of n one day coming out.

I will take this small gain. BTW, I feel better today.
So to all you suicide jockeys. It gets better, a good day is coming.
But a fan of Full moons or Blue Moons. No.

malaise or maturity

The rate that I'm losing interest in different things is starting to cause me to be concerned.

I seem to be downgrading things that I once thought very important or that excited me.

I also seem to be better at holding down my temper n keeping my mouth shut when annoyed.

I'm not sure if it's malaise or maturity.

My mind also seems to function better. Less people running into the room yelling fire.

2 Worlds #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

I walk between two worlds. Pez Outlaws world and the simple life I live here on the farm. 
3 hours, mornings, are spent working here on the computer promoting Pez Outlaw.
The rest of my productive hours, afternoons, are spent feeding watering the horses and general farm work.

Once Pez Outlaw is a success, I plan to leave him behind and turn to the farm full time.
So getting Pez Outlaw strong enough so that he can stand on his own is my goal right now.

To be honest with you all these people that are working on what I'm not allowed to talk about have gone silent. I hear nothing and nobody is contacting me in any fashion anymore.
Though I knew going in that it could be between 1 and 3 years.

You know it's just one of those deals where everybody is your best buddy until you sign all the contracts. Then, well then buddy your on your own again.

Though I'm not sure I care anymore.
The intensity of the fight that was all consuming for over ten years has left me.
I want this to work but I'm not sure I care as much as I did a decade ago.

For 15 years almost in one way or another I have been writing about Pez Outlaw.
Nothing changed within me until I started writing here in Notes From The Asylum.
I have found more peace over the whole Pez thing in 5 months writing in Notes From The Asylum than I did in a decade writing in Pez Outlaw Diary.

I view it as it took the Diary for me to be able to get to the Asylum.
Long story short, I'm in a better place now, thanks to the Asylum.
Instead of being upset about something that happened, I'm daily looking inward and reflecting on things.
Not to mention that Notes From The Asylum is more rewarding.

Well there you go, that's my deal for today.

I always follow back after someone follows me on twitter.
I always friend back on facebook.
except pages I consider not in good taste.

We're Walking, We're Walking. #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

You know how people are always asking you, How much crazy you got in that bag?
Considerable Son, Considerable. 
And the thing is I can get it out to play whenever I want.

If 99 people say yes and you are the only one that says no, what is the conclusion?
For me, the 99 are wrong. 
To me this is not defiance, it's a belief to your core in yourself and what you believe.

I believe it possible that one person can see something true in a fog. 
It takes more conviction to stand by a lone belief than to agree in a crowd.
Independent Unique thought is very precious. 

There is a lot of pressure from all directions to conform nowadays. 
Very few are able to withstand that pressure.
Your capitulation is sought to validate group think.

You perceive that a crowd in unanimous agreement is strength.
Truth is there inability to tolerate independent thought shows how weak there position is.
There is safety in group think agreement, that a voice from the wilderness challenges.

True strength is the ability to stand alone and defend or exhibit independent thought.

People say to me.
They'd never make a movie out of my life.
It's to boring.

Well you haven't got your crayons out yet, have you?
It's not your life that's boring, it's how you view that life.

Every since I've taken over writing my life, I'm a happier person.
Of course that means adding a lot of characters that folks enjoy hearing about.
Or is it that they are polite about? Either way I'm happier. 

There is crazy and there is CRAZY.
Truth is there is a very big difference.
My kind of crazy is fun and full of good stories.
I don't even want to give voice to the other kind.

That was the disclaimer.
It's actually sad that I even had to give it.
But you know current events etc, best to say it.

Now I'm depressed. 
We'll be right back after a word from our sponsors.
ALPo, Ed.

Raindrops fallin on my leg. #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

This time 2 years ago I found myself very anxious about the article Jeff Maysh was writing. 
Though I was not allowed to tell you that I'd sat down for the story that would later appear in The April issue of Playboy.

 Jeff trying to calm me down saying, Hollywood is about to shut down for a couple months. Christmas n New Years.
That not much was going to happen till March or April.

I remember thinking how much that sucked, yet with April came the release of the story.
A year later, here we are again. This time I know without being told that Hollywood shuts down for a couple months.

Maybe in March or April? 
Well that sucks.
You know me, I just love to wait.

So to bide my time I will just keep writing in Notes From The Asylum.
Though today I have been looking at snow chains for my tractor.

In case you missed the joke from the title.
It's the old joke.
Don't piss on my leg n tell me it's raining.
so it follows, being an optimist.
Raindrops keep fallin on my leg. 
A twist on the old song "Raindrops keep falling on my head".


The impatient optimist. "Irony".
Eat your Wheaties so you too can grow up big n strong like Pez Outlaw. 
It could be a thing?

If Wishes Were Horses #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw p

Pie in the sky.
Livin on dreams n promises.
Bills to pay, empty days to fill.

Inadequacy, watching the pain.
Roles to play.
Wishing I could take the burden.

Tightly gripping the edge of the cliff.
Dreaming of sounder ground.
Redemption just out of reach.

Hold the dream close.
Belief is all you have.
Suppressing the Anger.

Mustn't speak what should not be spoken.

All the things I can and the things I'm forbidden to say.

I've been speaking in riddles for so long now that at times even I'm uncertain.

Pez Outlaw Diary 

Misdirection #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

Is it that I'm rarely certain of exactly what I'm doing or why.
Or nothing is what it appears to be on the surface.

Are there agendas under the stated agenda.
When I'm talking to bob am I really talking to someone else I know is reading this.
In short, Am I the alligator?

Nothing I ever say is meant for just one ear or interpretation.
Let alone meant for only one outcome.

Only one thing is certain, and even that is not the stated subject.
The stated subject is simply the means to the true goal.
None of which are celebrity. 
Celebrity meaning the success of Pez Outlaw is just a means to an end.

The commonly held belief for the outcome of Pez Outlaw is a ruse.
That which others would roll like Preashus Pup over is not at all the goal.
To be honest the realistic win of that scenario does not cover the tab. 
For the goal/bill to be actually achieved takes a domino effect.

Pez Outlaw will go on to whatever future or mark he makes, but he n I will part ways once my true goals are achieved.

I've been speaking in riddles for so long now that at times even I'm uncertain.
Clarity seems to be a rare commodity in a world that demands it.

Some things in my personal life have clarity.
That would be the farm and what is expected of me by my employers, the horses n dogs.

Other things like Pez Outlaw not so much.
I have no idea what's going on at the moment with Pez Outlaw, I'm definitely not in the loop.
Truth be told I know less every day.

My dream is to just walk away?
Clear the racks, load the bin.
And never look back. 

Operating on autopilot.
Endless stream of Zero's.
No emotion, no investment.

Crazy isn't all it's cracked up to be.

For the record. Have you ever tried to argue with a computer.
The most ridiculous things are required just because the algorithm says so. 
Stupidity is irrelevant. You just comply n swallow the absurdity. 
You can not win an argument with a computer, they are cold and unfeeling.
Like a good little drone you answer stupid til the computer says you can go. 
Roughly 100 times today.

Relentless n Shameless #pezoutlaw #hollywood

I am never offended when someone unfriends me because they just can't take it anymore.

Every time somebody I know asks to be friended on facebook.
I ask them or at least think, 
Are you sure you really want this?

I often think of my methods as Brute Force.
In the vane of the old Soviet Method of re-engineering technology.
Give me something stupid, I use it.
Lack of understanding how to use something, no problem.
Just plow forward.

No fear of being trashed by someone who might take exception To Pez Outlaw Diary or a post on Notes From The Asylum.
There anger would just be free publicity.

On twitter alone I've got over 56,600 posts.
My facebook friends definitely grow weary of being the conduit to my imaginary perception of the Internet as an entity.

Anyway I'm sorry to my friends on facebook.
I'm not going to stop, but I am sorry. 

This post is a prime example.
There was a point to the Torture of today's posts on google+, facebook and twitter.

I know that I can get over 1,000 views of Notes Fron The Asylum in less than 4 hrs if I'm willing to put the work in. Today once again I proved the point. 1,100 views.

It's not about being right. Proving a point or using you.  

To the contrary I really appreciate you and the dependable interest level in Notes From The Asylum.

Notes From The Asylum has 254 individual blog posts and that is after deleting well over 100 that were very weak. Example, just replaced the show your butt girls post with this one. 

Anyway days like today are to show myself the strength of Notes From The Asylum, but only if I'm willing to personally put the work in.

Please allow me one more little brag.

n The Horse You Rode In On.. #pezoutlaw #hollywood

Shock value over, I cleaned it up. My apologies to facebook friends.
Pez Outlaw Diary is written by a proud member of the writing world substrata.

We write because we can not help but write.
We receive no money for our labors.
I say we are writers because we write.

Our work is not considered up to the professional standards of paid writers.
Yet we are who professional writers and movie producers turn to for original thought n ideas.
Our work is from our hearts, raw in it's originality.
I was told true to my perspective, indicating I suppose raw.

OK, all well n good.
I feel that we who write for no pay are mistreated by the predatory element of the aspiring writer world.
I do not fear for myself, I know who I am. My writing is for myself, as yours should be. 
You don't like it or take exception to my work. Well you know, who needs ya.
That's me though. I have to think those who scheme for a profit would not continue if win loss was not in there benefit.

To my brothers n sisters in the world of writing who do not get paid for your work.
Write because for you there is no alternative.
Write because you must get your thoughts down.
Do not seek approval, stay true to your work.
Commercial writing is full of compromise.
Demographics, focus groups or movie potential.

Our work is the source, the fountain that professional writers n movie producers drink from.

To the point.
If someone wants money from you for any purpose concerning your work.
NO, is the only correct answer.

Pez Outlaw Manifesto #pezoutlaw #pez #hollywood

#whoispezoutlaw that's really the important part #pez #pezoutlaw

Every Self Respecting Crazy Needs A Manifesto! 
Though I do suggest you skip the cabin in the woods. 

I would do business with shady folks over corporate types any day of the week.
In my experience shady folk can be trusted way more than corporate types.

When I was a Pez smuggler I earned 4.5 million dollars dealing with shady types.
I did one deal with Pez Corporation n lost 1/2 million dollars and 20 years of work.

If I had a Do Over. I never would have tried to go legit. It was more fun and way more profitable being a Pez Outlaw.

You can buy the loyalty of shady folks. Corporate types can not be trusted, they will double cross you in a second.

I'll walk on the shady side of the street from here.

I believe what I see, the rest is just noise.

Today is kinda an odd day for me. I find myself missing the game.

Would I do it again now. Yah, I guess I would but here's the thing. Back then It was money that did the trick. 

Today I'd do it different. Pez Outlaw is my currency, only he can or could make the things happen that folks wanted money for before.

The name Pez Outlaw is a brand now which changes things. If you want to be associated with the Pez Outlaw brand, my rules.

Yes of course you'd get your money, but not up front anymore. When n if you deliver n it sold well, then you get paid.

The hobby n Pez Corporation have been living off what I built and my ideas for a decade n a half.

The Pez world I built n it's success has been squandered. God bless it took 15 years to slowly lose everything I built. Only Pez Outlaw could rebuild it.

In today's world nuance is lost as mediocrity, BOLD takes the day.

The 24 hr rule is in effect. Not a reader of the Asylum? Then you won't know what that means.

Talking to Animals #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

There is a horse on the farm that was scared of me/men when she came here.
It's taken 3 years but the other day when she saw me she came running full speed to me. 
All I did was give her room, respect her space n provide a steady reliable routine.

With horses and dogs I've had to undo a lot of damage by ignorant previous "owners".
It can take years to undo. Sometimes all you can do is lessen the damage.

One of the ways I do this is by talking to the animals.
A lady was working with Johnny Cash (horse) I asked her how it went.
They were having issues.
This happens over n over with lots of horses.
It sounds simplistic but I always ask, are you talking to him.
I feel it's important to have a relationship with a horse before you ever try to ride it.
If a horse likes or loves you, they will give you the benefit of the doubt.
No relationship, they'd just as soon put you on the ground.

That's not to say that a group of horses can't be trained n made to understand that there job is to give strangers rides. But then again they are doing that out of respect for there trainer "Kathy" that has asked them to do that. In that case they are doing it because of the relationship that they have with her not the rider.
 
Another way I communicate with animals is by example. 
I present as calm n strong a presence as I can.
It does not hurt that I also feed them.
To the horses I'm steady Eddy.
Every day roughly same times, I'm there with food.
I ask nothing, I just feed them. Trust me they notice.

With my dogs.
I eat, then they always get a good portion of whatever or whenever I eat.
Exactly the same way it would be in there world in the wild.
Dogs understand this, the leader of the pack always eats first, then he shares.

One quick note on rescue dogs.
I have one trick I use from day one.
I rename the dog the day it arrives.
New name for a new life.
You might be surprised to learn Billy Dogs original name was Lilly.
Lilly was the dog tied with a rope to a tree in zero degree temps.
When Billy arrived she asked me if she could have a better life, I told her she was home now.
Billy Dog is my Knuckle Head buddy. 
Billy is the unstoppable dog, optimistic beyond reason. 
Billy helped me get over the loss of Rudy.

I don't know what Pinkies name was.
Found him in the corner of a pasture at a young age freezing n burns all over his back.
Pinky asked me to please take him in, I told him all that was over, he was home now.
Being an Albino Doberman I gave him as playful a name as I could think of.
His trauma was very deep, years n years of talking to help him find a place he can live with in his mind.

Once a dog picks me I have no choice, I must agree to give them all I can.
I give them my strength to lean on n they give me there's.

I love Dogs n Horses, they are my friends.
In most cases I like Dogs more than I like humans.

Never, "Mind" #pezoutlaw #hollywood @pezoutlaw

Do we hold on to tight to our dreams sometimes?
Believe it or not this is not about Pez Outlaw.
It's about something I've been watching now for over 30 years.

I don't want to be specific because that might be unkind.
Here's what it boils down to.

People sometimes find meaning in things that are not there own.
Even though it's not there's they treat it at time like it is there's.
I also keep seeing the desperate struggle that goes on to keep the dream alive.
Floundering yet unwilling to accept reality.

It's not important, I just keep watching it repeat over n over.
Make's me wonder, is this just a symptom of a bigger thing.

We've all been beat down for so long, are we all within our spheres rebelling.

We may know it's futile but just can't bare the thought of losing again.

Like I said, it's not important.
These dramas need to play out.

I'm not putting a lot of money on my brain today.
It's not a dependable unit at the moment. 
Nobody has escaped that I know of, but my mind does feel a bit understaffed. 

Hey does anybody know?
Is Hollywood back from the Holiday break yet?
I could use some good news. #pezoutlaw #hollywood 
I followed 5 days of the flu with a kidney stone. so yeah some good news would be welcome.

Incommunicado & NFTA Reduction #pezoutlaw

I do not have a cell phone.
I had a  cell phone but Kathy canceled it because I never turned it on. 

With the recent activity on Pez Outlaw Diary, there are people out west that wish this was not the case. 
I do not talk on telephones. I dislike them with a passion. 
This is a rule I do not break except for Kathy. 
You want to talk to me, facebook is the only way & even there I'm very selective.
When certain things begin, this will also act as a filter against unwanted attention or interest.

In The Sockology of Cell Phones, Mirrors n Technology... I go into my dislike of cell phones n technology in general. 

A few years ago Kathy used to pay my grandson to fill the water tanks, she wanted to give him some money, I do it now.
My grandson had his head down looking at n typing into his cell phone the whole time.

People in general nowadays are tethered to n at the beck n call of there cell phones. 
Everywhere you look people are hunched over fooling around with there phones.
If you are having an actual face to face with someone, there phone wrings or texts them, there no longer there.

I've always had a disdain for the idea of telephones.
Someone out there decides it's convenient for them to reach out with a phone, the act has no consideration for if you even want to talk to them or anyone at that moment.
The act assumes & decides that what you are doing is secondary to the whim of the call n it's timing.

The second part is this.
The preoccupation of the young n some old with cell phone, always hunched over looking at them.
This activity does not respect a good work ethic.
You do your work, then you play or relax.
Current habits with phones mix the two, showing disrespect to the people around you & the work you are supposed to be doing.

That's why I only communicate on facebook. 
I only talk or respond when I like.
You only pay attention to what you want to.

NFTA = Notes From The Asylum
I just cut approximately 1/2 the posts on Notes From The Asylum.
You could say I did some editing with a meat cleaver not a scalpel.

Reason, They sucked.

OK there was more to it than that.
With Notes From The Asylum I want to put my best foot forward.
If someone happens on Notes From The Asylum I want hem to be interested.
Say the post they happen on isn't very good, well you know. Bye, Bye.

There is a grading system for posts on Notes From The Asylum.
That grading system is defined by the number of views each post gets.

BOOOOOM! My Head Just Exploded. #pezoutlaw is currently at just under 1,500 views.
It's the #1 post on Notes From The Asylum.
All the deleted posts were at less than 125 views
Over 100 posts were deleted.   

I need new viewers of  Notes From The Asylum  to only see the best posts. 
This cut was at 125 n less views.
The next cut I'm considering is at less than 150ish views, but that's a bit down the road.

Let Her Rip. #pezoutlaw #hollywood

This is the Asylum so I'm gonna let her rip.

With my writing no one piece is at all what it's about.
My intent is the creation of an overall abstract impact on an entity I do not understand.
That entity is the Internet.

Sistine Chapel or common inner city tagger.
Each day I get out my brushes n try to create a stroke of paint on the canvas of the Internet.
Unlike most who write on twitter, facebook or blog, I'm not writing for or to people who might want or do read it.
My work is for an overall impact on that entity "the Internet".
No one piece is going to own its moment.

I've told you that the Universe speaks to me.
Horses, Dogs, garden tractors etc.
That I will lay under a tractor for 45 minutes feeling around n observing until I see the problem n it tells me how to fix it.

I feel the Internet is the same thing.
Each post is me feeling around n listening once I post it.
The Internet hasn't spoken to me yet, but I'm patient.

When the Internet speaks it will speak in the form of a million views.
That dear reader is when n where you come in.
Until then my job is to be prolific.

You wanna hear one thing that's kinda funny.
The Internet does not like it when you refer to it as the internet.
It prefers the capital I in Internet, not small i.
On that point it has spoken to me.

Living With n Doin Without #pezoutlaw



I try very hard to keep my needs n wants small.
Kathy has worked very hard to pull us out of the hole that was created by the Pez Years.
see Pez Outlaw Diary

I live as modestly as I can. I do not go anywhere.
I create from free for my amusement.
I find joy in creating from scrap n waste.
It's a new dimension for me. google EW-ME

You don't look at or think about things you can't do anything about.
You push past these things to the things you can do something about.

Between you n me.
It's a secret so don't tell anybody.
I kinda feel like a lazy bum next to how hard kathy works.
The woman is a force of nature.

When I started this I wanted to talk abstractly about a lot of things.
But I can't, not allowed.
Suffice it to say, those of us living closer to the ground live with n do without a lot.
So back to the Billionaire thing. NO, they are flat out Aliens. They are not by any stretch like you n me.
Yes, Billionaire's annoy the shit out of me. It's kinda obscene when you really think about it.

Pez Outlaw Diary



Yet I keep hearing about people with a Billion Dollars or 10 billion plus.
These people are like entities from another planet to me.

Bill Gates has talked Warren Buffet into giving his money to some charity he n his wife run.
Like you can buy your way into heaven.

I've always thought that the idea of rich folk giving all there money away was absolutely ignorant.

Let's play Billionaire for a minute, just for fun.
If I had 10 or 20 Billion Dollars, What do I think I'd do.
To me that kind of money carries big responsibility to your fellow man.
BUT.
You do not just give it away like a do gooder.
You build things with it, providing jobs for other people.

A favorite fantasy of mine would be to buy a car company or start one.
The first product I'd make is a 1950s era pickup truck.
Bottom up as close as law would allow to the originals.
Personally I think there'd be a good market for that era of a retro pickup.

Anyway, you do not give money away, you put it to work so regular folk can earn.

Can Poetry can change your life?

Is it to snarky to say you should ask a person living in there car, because they've lost there home.

I see these popup ads next to my facebook page.
One line will grab my brain.
Never I'm sure the way the advert intended.

I sometimes wonder if there heads are so far up that they are stuck.
Real people don't think like this.
Real people are seriously puzzle by there pondering's.

I won't yank up any old saws n repeat them.
There just seems to be two ways of thinking in this country.
Those that have n those that have not.

The haves are very busy trying to show the have nots how deeply they care about everything.
The have nots are just trying to make it each day, kinda keeps them to busy to ponder on foolish.

Focus groups are not going to enlighten you on the real thinking of the have nots.
You're gonna have to get out there n live it a bit to get it.
I think that's why politicians and the media are always playing catch up n missing it.

Popup guys, I'm not going to vote in your click here adverts.
I don't n never would even hook a phone line to my DISH TV receiver.
I don't want to be diced, sliced n dissected for info by anybody.

We're different now. #pezoutlaw



I liked this. didn't know any other way to share it.
Where I got it from.
Basically somebody said that nothings different, we're just more aware now.
Which is just modern for I'm OK, you're OK.

To me, no.
We were different back then.
In the 1950s n earl 1960s we viewed the world, our neighborhoods n our neighbors different than today.
As a child, I was different from most children today.
Grab at me or cross me n we were gonna fight.
Don't care who you were or how big you were, we were gonna fight.
Touch my brothers, we were gonna fight.
Hurt a girl, we were gonna fight. Broke my collar bone on that one.
Talk wrong about my Mom, we were definitely gonna fight. 

Let's face it, I made a pretty insincere Flower Child.
I kinda fought a lot especially in grade-school.
Nowadays somebody acts wrong. You smack them up side the head n you're in trouble.
Things have just went backwards. 
Society no longer allows adjustments for bad behavior, so it just continues.

My grandsons are being raised that way n I put wrenches in my granddaughters hands as often as I can.

The Difference.
A little girl from California was here when we did Hay.
A board was missing on the wagon.
California said we should put a caution sign around it.
I guarantee you my granddaughters were thinking,
Grandpa, you need to fix that.
One granddaughter in particular if she thought I'd let her would have been grabbing a board nails n a hammer. If she'd been given even a nod. 

No, OH BUDDY YOU BETCHA Things are different now for sure.

To me it's how we look at it.
Like the new thing, Free range parenting.
When I was young that was called parenting period.

I think that's why I kept going back to Hungary in the 1990s.
Beyond the obvious reason "PEZ".
Hungary in the 1990s reminded me of my childhood in the late 1950s n early 1960s.

We live in a society where if someone behaves in a proper fashion, people call them a hero instead of a good neighbor. 

A postscript after Paris.
Not a criticism just not How I'd look at it.
A terrorist says on your knees.
To late dude I'm already coming.
I like my odds against a terrorist better if I go at him than on my knees.
I know a lot of other Americans that would agree with me. 
Don't think about it, just go.
It's not a choice, it's about survival.
