Friday Foibles

Cam Wilde called me this morning. Cam is one of the funniest people I have ever met and has been my cohort in some of the most insane hijinx I have been involved in in the antiques business.

Its a wonder we haven't been thrown out of shows, institutionalized or put in jail for some of our adolescent behavior. Who can forget the tag team with the fart machine at Hillsborough or the stinky cheese incident or the moldy sandwich caper?

The antique business was more fun in the old days when we started our day off with shots at the bar at Whispers in San Carlos.

Cam has matured somewhat and I think better off since he decided to forsake the young boys. (JOKE) Cam now lives with Birgit, a svelte german woman which is kind of strange since he has always favored big chubby girls. He is one of the few caucasians in Salinas and a well known figure at Jack's, The Penny and other similar dives. Even he will admit that life has improved since they removed the court authorized ankle bracelet.

Cam said that he went into AAA the other day and told the women behind the desk that he was there for the twelve step meeting. She looked at him quizzically as he stumbled in front of her and then he looked up and said "Oh shoot, this is Triple A, my bad - in that case give me some car insurance and a map of Michigan."
