Eemeergency... Everybody to get from street!

Don't Let The Chicken Turn You
In To A Criminal Or An Accomplice

The Chicken is big on lying and manipulating people to do his bidding. He will tell plausible sounding stories and enlist the innocent to do his dirty work or get sucked into whatever plot, plan or scheme he's concocting. You may be tempted to participate based on a promise or even payment but there are a few things you should know. Be aware that you follow a long list of participants that he has turned on or have figured out for themselves, often too late, that he is bad news and every endeavor is corrupt from its conception to its execution.

  • Everything he tells you is an exaggeration, a misrepresentation or an outright fabrication. EVERYTHING!!!

  • Everything he tells you is calculated to manipulate you, hit on you (if you're female) or enlist you to do his bidding.

  • He is not legally connected to any real-estate in Connecticut other than the building he sits in that is in foreclosure and the electricity has been off for the last twenty days due to non-payment.

  • He will tell you that he owns many buildings that are not his in an attempt to get you to help him vandalize that building or steal something.

  • He will tell tales of great injustices committed against him by all sorts of people and how you need to help him get even. Don't fall for it! He has created every situation he now considers himself a victim of through wanton spending to show off and lying to, cheating on and stealing from everyone he comes in contact with.

  • Take the time and look in to the long list of people he has turned on that were part of his inner circle. There are dozens and each of them can tell you all about his behavior, his motivation and his activities.

  • The only vehicle he owns is the one that sits outside the building he occupies until the bank evicts him. He owns no other vehicle in Connecticut.

  • He WILL turn on you as soon as it is convenient for him to do so.

  • Be aware that all of my tenants in all of my buildings know who he is and all about him and anyone that may do his bidding. They are all eager to collect my offer of a month's free rent for making a phone call to the state police that results in him or you being arrested. They inform me regularly of any suspicious activities on, in, around and even near any of my properties.

  • If you are on any of my property with him, as a result of him or on behalf of him you are trespassing.

  • A simple stop at the town hall will verify ownership of any piece of property. Don't fall for any of his crap. You will pay for it and he will lie to set you up no matter what he claims to the contrary.

  • Notice how you are one of the few left in the inner circle. There is a reason for this. Learn the reason and save yourself.

Day 25... It's Good To Be Alive!!!

with NO ELECTRICITY!!!


      Twenty-five days straight with no electricity at al-Kabong headquarters and the Chicken is out of control again. As of the last update sources had told me all permits to run anything that remotely resembles a restaurant were pulled by the health department. Before that we learned that the fire marshal intervened and wouldn't allow anyone living in the building besides the Chicken. Apparently this warning didn't last very long. I hear the Chicken is renting rooms on the second floor (without electricity) to one or more people and then true to form harassing them. It seems a call to the state police was placed today and they again tried to make a very wrong situation right. I hear the issue may have been racially motivated. The barricaded stairs and doors and no trespassing signs seem to be the result. There's always time to make the place homey with a new set of wind chimes though. How long will it be until they boot the Chicken out as well? It seems like everyone is getting tired of this horrific train wreck of a situation.
      There's still no positive id on the Chicken's fellow diners at the Brooklyn Country Club Restaurant last week. I hear he's making a four-engine run on sabotaging a new business attempting to open near by. No doubt revenge for some perceived injustice against him by the future proprietors. I hear he just shot his mouth off promising money to start the business and then was dropped like a hot potato when he turned out to have stalked away every last penny.

Day 30... Down and Must Be Dirty

with NO ELECTRICITY!!!


      Thirty days straight with no electricity at al-Kabong headquarters and the Chicken is still clinging to the raft. Rumor has it the state police were called again over some issue with some "residents" of the building. Looks like one of the awnings was hit by a truck due to it extending two feet into the road or possibly someone jumped through it from above attempting to escape the inner sanctum. Either way it adds another touch of Chicken class to Main Street

Day 32... He's still looking at YOU!!!

with NO ELECTRICITY!!!


      Thirty-two days straight with no electricity at al-Kabong headquarters and the Chicken has some new issues to deal with. Seems he's been cut off from his source of stalking money and can't afford the Cash for Chunkers program any more. Rumor around the Leach Field is there's a bench warrant out for his arrest for passing bad checks. He's probably in full scam mode trying to come up with the dough before D-Day. I bet he's working the New Jersey crowd for a ride out of town before the boom drops. I wonder what story he's made up to explain away all this. Maybe he'll wait for a sunny day and make a break for it in the Cleveland Steamer. Since the roof won't go up any more it's been covered with a tarp out next to the stolen trailer. There's probably raccoons living in it by now. Maybe even groundhogs! Remember Bill Murray in Groundhog Day? "Don't drive angry!" Punxsutawney Chicken? Leach Field Phil? Maybe he can stalk his own shadow.

Today saw the weather turn from a clammy humid fall-feeling morning to a great late summer afternoon. Work is underway on a Crabby page to honor the poor little critter and I think I got some great shots of some great sailboats as night fell on India Point Park in Providence, Rhode Island. I hope to have those up tomorrow time permitting. There's clams in the cooler that need steaming (or eating) and a million other things to tend to but I'm still fighting off a summer cold/flu type of thing that made tonight's walk in Providence a bit of a chore. The last mile back to the truck really sucked but the sailboats and the waterfront revived me for a while. Time to call it a night and get some sleep. There may not be too many more balmy nights to have the windows all cranked ope and hear crickets so go for it.

Day 33... He's still lying about me!!!

with NO ELEC... TRICITY!!!


      Thirty-three days straight with no electricity at al-Kabong headquarters and there's still plenty of action. 8:15 PM saw yet another visit by the state police. His last bestess buddy did a quick U-turn when he saw the cruiser in he parking lot. I wonder what this visit is about? Where have all the Chicken's buddies gone? Seems like there's been dozens and dozens in a few short years. They all seem to go from golden boy (or girl) to Chicken enemy number one in short order. seems like the road to Chicken Town is a one way road that crosses a burning bridge. One thing the Chicken is good at is burning bridges. He talks shit about everyone in his inner circle to everyone else and thinks no one ever compares notes. So even if you have reached "bestess buddy" status, he's already trash talking you to the next one.

Day 34... And ready for MORE!!!

with NO ELECTRICITY on the first, second or third floor.


      Thirty-four days straight with no electricity at al-Kabong headquarters and there's no end in sight. I wonder where Bubbles is. Seems like not so long ago he was telling everyone she's his new girlfriend and that seems like where most of the money went and then POOF! That's back when Mr. real-estate big shot hijacked the building and was going to show us all how it's done. He drove out every tenant with his lying and manipulating and stalking and wasted the rest of his money on two ridiculous failed sham businesses and countless corrupt schemes. The building is in foreclosure and he's the laughing stock of laughing stocks. Quite a success story. He should market one of those "how to succeed..." systems on TV.

Day 36... With no way to fix...

the ELECTRICITY!


      Thirty-six days straight with no electricity at the Chicken Tabernacle. Rumor has it there's no water either. The surveillance team reported that he was spotted at Zip's Diner a while ago with the primary Cash for Chunkers "participant" and maybe even her mother. CREEPY!!! Another report says the rumored deal to lease the restaurant from hell fell through... or someone did a little research about him and backed out like they were sprayed by a skunk. Everyone hopes the cell phone rumor isn't true. There's been a lot of speculation about what happened to the awning. My favorite is that he was hanging from it flinging feces as passersby. Swingin' 'n' Flingin' man... Sounds like something Elvis would say. Reports have him trying to grub money at a local business again today around noon. The cash crunch must be hurting stalking activities.

Coming Soon: Cell phone video from the inner sanctum of Doctor Strange Love

Not for the faint of heart. REALLY creepy!!!


Spin & Rich Number 5


     Friday, September 18, 2009     

      Today was a turning point on a small scale. I decided that the "cold" I had been nursing for two weeks had progressed far enough to warrant a trip to the doctors. Each morning of late I wake up feeling worse than the morning before but after a few Ibuprofens, some cough medicine, a few coffees and a pile of vitamins I felt functional. My doctor is one of the smartest guys I know. I haven't had a lot of contact with him but based on our limited exchanges of questions and answers and casual conversation I'd hate to have to try and outsmart him. I asked him to quantify his support for the proposed healthcare reform bill in a single number signifying his percentage of support. We discussed it for a few minutes and the resulting number was 70.
      He told me if we don't do anything we're screwed. He told me that the Democrat's reasons for the bill far outweigh the Republican's reasons against it and if we dare entertain any of their alternate proposals that we are certainly doomed. The example he used was the Bush sponsored Prescription Drug Bill that increased cost to participants by 250%, burned up their deductibles sooner and increased profits for the pharmaceutical industry by 45% the very next year. He and his peers called it the Pharmaceutical Industry Relief Bill. These are all conclusions I have come to myself but I always like hearing concurrence from someone I respect and admire.
      I was prescribed a strong generic antibiotic for bronchitis, weighed in at 249 and sent on my way to fill an $8.00 prescription. I had been avoiding food all day due to an invite from Joe Cicanesi to dine at the Nordic Lodge with two other associates. All you can eat lobster, fill mignon, prime rib, king crab legs, clams, lobster shrimp and everything else you can think of.
      I wasn't about to miss that due to illness and found that the antibiotics seem to serve as an appetite stimulant. I was in bed by 10:00 but life, for the moment, was good. The day started with aches, pains, coughing and mucus with 39 degrees on the wing-bridge thermometer and ended with that Thanksgiving-Dinner overstuffed contented bliss that comes from eating way too much delicious food. Life can be good no matter what the circumstances.

The Rez
Five minutes to another world

     These pictures were taken at Wauregan Reservoir, also known as Quinebaug Pond State Park, just a few minutes drive from the Train Station in downtown Danielson. The opportunities to experience "The Rez" in all its glory become scarcer as fall approaches. It's a beautiful spot any time of year, but nothing soothes the need for nature in short notice like an afternoon paddle around the perimeter in a kayak. Turtles and frogs still abound and the shallows are teaming with small fish. Three bass and a snapping turtlte on the prowl were easily visible in the clear water. There was scarcely a ripple on the surface. This is one of the best places in Killingly, CT.


Please note...
This is the first new entry in the One-legged Sandpiper since Sunday, December 14, 2003.
I guess I've been kinda busy. I'll be restoring hundreds of pages of the old stuff and adding new stuff as time permits.

Crabby is rescued at the Rez

Crabby
A Very Lucky Hermit crab

     Kelly was fishing at The Rez and I was walking along the bank when I noticed some movement near my feet. At first I thought I had kicked a rock, but then noticed a snail type of shell on the ground in front of me. I picked it up and found it was occupied by Crabby. Crabby is a Hermit crab that someone released at The Rez thinking they were doing him a favor... or getting out of caring for him. He's missing his big claw but otherwise seemed in good health. Being from the Caribbean, there's no chance he would have survived September in the "wild" and would no doubt get eaten or stepped on so... His new home is now in a ten gallon fish tank with a horseshoe crab shell for a cave, clam shells for food, fresh water and salt water AND... New Jersey beach sand to stroll on.


I Predict...
If it starts looking like McCain/Palin will implode in this election, the Talking-Chimp may lend a hand by letting one get by the goalie and using a terrorist attack as reason enough to suspend the election. He could always resort to picking a fight with Iran, Pakistan or Russia in case plan A doesn't happen. Maybe even letting the "financial crisis" turn into a reason. Keep your head down... time is growing short!

Day 46... And he's still getting his kicks...

With no ELECTRICITY!


      Forty-six days straight with no electricity at Al-Kabong headquarters. The surveillance team reported that three of the Al-Kabong bimbos have been arrested and removed from play... One found hiding in a closet in Al-Kabong headquarters. Rumor has it the bank was in the other day doing the final pass before taking the building... which will leave the evil one homeless. Beware!!! I hear he was even spotted dining by flashlight in a restaurant in town. One with lights and electricity and everything! The Chicken has worked SO hard to get where he is today we should all congratulate him every chance we get. It took years of wonton spending, showing off and a string of the stupidest decisions ever to spend himself to oblivion.

The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated

The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

Sounds like the work of the Chicken again!

I'll repeat the warning below just in case you missed the first one:


Eemeergency... Everybody to get from street!

Don't Let The Chicken Turn You
In To A Criminal Or An Accomplice

The Chicken is big on lying and manipulating people to do his bidding. He will tell plausible sounding stories and enlist the innocent to do his dirty work or get sucked into whatever plot, plan or scheme he's concocting. You may be tempted to participate based on a promise or even payment but there are a few things you should know. Be aware that you follow a long list of participants that he has turned on or have figured out for themselves, often too late, that he is bad news and every endeavor is corrupt from its conception to its execution.

  • Everything he tells you is an exaggeration, a misrepresentation or an outright fabrication. EVERYTHING!!!

  • Everything he tells you is calculated to manipulate you, hit on you (if you're female) or enlist you to do his bidding.

  • He is not legally connected to any real-estate in Connecticut other than the building he sits in that is in foreclosure and the electricity has been off for the last twenty days due to non-payment.

  • He will tell you that he owns many buildings that are not his in an attempt to get you to help him vandalize that building or steal something.

  • He will tell tales of great injustices committed against him by all sorts of people and how you need to help him get even. Don't fall for it! He has created every situation he now considers himself a victim of through wanton spending to show off and lying to, cheating on and stealing from everyone he comes in contact with.

  • Take the time and look in to the long list of people he has turned on that were part of his inner circle. There are dozens and each of them can tell you all about his behavior, his motivation and his activities.

  • The only vehicle he owns is the one that sits outside the building he occupies until the bank evicts him. He owns no other vehicle in Connecticut.

  • He WILL turn on you as soon as it is convenient for him to do so.

  • Be aware that all of my tenants in all of my buildings know who he is and all about him and anyone that may do his bidding. They are all eager to collect my offer of a month's free rent for making a phone call to the state police that results in him or you being arrested. They inform me regularly of any suspicious activities on, in, around and even near any of my properties.

  • If you are on any of my property with him, as a result of him or on behalf of him you are trespassing.

  • A simple stop at the town hall will verify ownership of any piece of property. Don't fall for any of his crap. You will pay for it and he will lie to set you up no matter what he claims to the contrary.

  • Notice how you are one of the few left in the inner circle. There is a reason for this. Learn the reason and save yourself.

  • If I have an apartment to rent you would have heard that from me. If you know, or are in any was associated with the Chicken, the apartment is not available to you. Trust me 100% on this.

I paid two guys a thousand dollars
to break your kneecaps!
 

Maybe you should have paid them $500 for breaking one of my kneecaps and paid the water bill with the other $500. Was it each guy got a $1,000... Or each guy got $500? Maybe you could have had ONE guy break both kneecaps for $500. It would really be almost as effective to have one guy break one kneecap for $250. That would leave $450 for the water bill and $300 for stalking activities. Maybe the one guy and I could split the $250 and get $125 each and I could pretend to limp for a few days. It's all very complicated. Maybe I better make a spreadsheet.

Spinning Chicken Update


Word comes from down thar...
Spinning Chicken's by far...
The worst driver 'round hyar...
And now can't drive his car...
Hardy Har Har... and not the Ralph Cramden version

     Fans of the Freaky Fowl may have noticed that the chicken has flown the coop. This usually means something he initiated is about to hit the fan but... in this case rumor has it his insurance cancelled due to twelve (12) points on the ole license. Whoopsie! The only thing that remains to be seen is who gets blamed for THIS one.
