House Update 4


Subject: House Update 4

Started: Apr 6, 1999

Sung to the Beverly Hillbillies tune:

Come 'n listen to my story 'bout a man named Deb

Poor Powegean barely kept his family shed (1)

An' then one day, he was goin' to his mountian top

An' up thru the bushes came a Quino Checkerspot

Butterfly that is! Lepidoptrea!

Well, the first thing ya know, Deb's in a state

Kin-folk said, "Deb, butterflys you can't hate."

Said the city is the place to get mad

So he loaded up the car and he went to poway.

City hall that is, bureaucrats, politicians.

Ol' Deb built a house, Lawdy it was small

Next door neighbor was a trucker on a call, (2)

Lotsa folks objected, but the trucker found no fault,

'Cause ol' Deb paved his road with as-phalt,

Tar and Rocks that is, curbs, gutters.

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Deb and all his kin

An' they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin' in.

You're all invited back again to this locality,

T'have a heapin' helpin' of their hospitality.

Powegean, that is! Set a spell, Take your shoes off!

(1) Shed - Shelter...

(2) A bible thumper

On a related note, the house now has a name


If you don't get the name, a hint, our computers are named:

Marvin(SparcStation 10)

Zaphod(2 Headed Mac 7500)

Arthur(Portable 1400c)
