Five years ago to the day we met the person who is Elsie J. Hook aboard a Detroit-bound Delta from Bumpkins County, NY.

I remarked on the surprisingly good quality of the Delta biscotti to the woman seated next to me. She agreed. I handed her the tinytowntimes,com business card after learning that she enjoyed crossword puzzles. She said she enjoyed the Grassroots Festival and I ranted about how sick I was of the in-Festivallainy of destination events that would soon turn tiny town into the Big Lots of once-quiet getaways.

We met again when she won the ttt.com contest for solving a teaser. Her reward was Diaries of a Dirty Old Man by Charles Bukowski. That was the beginning of a beautiful editorial relationship most of which is redacted to spare me any more regret.

Here's to meeting Elsie J. Hook who was not Elsie just yet. That would take some dyslexicity of my part before the names caught-on:

The song "I'll Trade a Cookie for Your Photograph" was first recorded in 2012 and never recorded again.

DRINK-UP: Whatever Could it Be?

 

Tiny Town, USA – Alert citizen X was crossing the bridge of sighs at EastEduCorp.com. X,  looked down and noticed a lovely bright green radiator-beverage spilling from the maw of a corporation tube.

Said image-taker reported the beautiful effluent to the second responders at the Department of Environmental Conversation and it is reported that the jolly green liquid is nothing more than glycol. As we all know, Glycol is in a class of organic compounds belonging to the the alcohol family. So, you know, it's good for you

In the molecule of glycol, two hydroxyl (-OH) groups are attached to different carbon atoms.  You'll some times hear a local saying something about "knocking back a half pint of ethylene glycol" to get themselves right in the morning, especially if "there isn't any Sterno around."

Joanne B. of Lansing posted: "Saw it while walking and reported it. Then when I came back through the Cornell employee said it was glycol from the heating system of one of the buildings and they were trying to figure out which one. I hope they figure it out soon."

We'd show you a picture of its atomic structure but why should we bother?

The corporation's agency of safety told the folks here that it was nothing more than a "storm drain dye test" ... That's the most we can make of it.

Another rumor spread that a performance-enhancing human electrolyte-replacement fluid the color of Lime Green Kool-Aid was rejected by all participants, especially the children,  in the organization's summer camp program owing to the "foul Jonestown tasting piss water" ... Subsequently forty gallons of the stuff was poured into a storm drain that ran into a human-made lake.

That's the most we can make of it.
