Border Hoppers
Posted at 12:50 AM


Kass showed up at the house early yesterday morning with his new Mercedes something-or-other. Bought it down south in Milwaukie, on a whim. Imagine that. A 1978.

Fucker was on a mission: “Draplin, we’re going to Vancouver to fill the trunk with fireworks.” Done.

Border hopping. Fireworks. Vintage Mercedes two-doors. This just might have been the first time I had ever been in a Mercedes. And, a little sports coupe to boot. I found myself wishing for Steely Dan to be playing. In fact, that rig should have a Steely Dan tape/8 track glued into the deck, on rotation forever. “Drink Scotch whisky all night long…And die behind the wheel…”

Kass Mission 01 : “This is what I woke up to.”
Kass Mission 02 : “Soar.”
Kass Mission 03: “American Spirit.”
Kass Mission 04: “One instance of great Chinese firework box type.”
Kass Mission 05: “New Small Bee.”
Kass Mission 06: “So much trouble to choose from.”
Kass Mission 07: “Mission: Dumbassable.”

Some lot passes from 1967.

Tell Kass to wear his earplugs - those things are dangerous!

Thanks. Looks like there are still some classic song lyrics out there I need to re-learn. Would have still sung it “And drive behind the wheel.” Which does seem a little redundant, now.
