    DECEMBER WINNER

    Bringin back some good Christmas cheer. Slap wishes who da heck wrote that story, cuz it says guest, and he be a big winner that long ago Christmas story. What an adventure he has. YEEEHAAAWW, SLAPPY BE FEELIN DA CHRISTMAS SPIRIT...SANTA BE COMING SOON.
  3. Hot damn folks, here comes Slappy’s Adopt-A-Wash 2.0. Well, Slap would love to tell you that it has all the new bells and whistles, glitter, and fancy pancy dance with Nancy presentation………………………….but it is not. It is good ol fashioned get your hands dirty to keep our Mother Glamis clean. Yes, she has gotten a bit ugly these last few years or so, but it is not her fault, it is OURS. She provides us with best platform in the world so we can pursue peace and excitement that all of us duners crave, and she does it in so many wondrous ways. So why did we let her get so ugly? Because we started taking for granted the belief that everybody who regulates on her has the common decency to clean up after themselves. Our open eyes of the past have become extremely shallow, centered, and narrow. It’s not about US, it never has been. This actually reminds Slap of a little wake up call he had the other day. Now pay attention……..Slap was in the garage working on the McSlappmachine, and it was a mess; tools everywhere, floor splattered with oil, piston rings missing, casing split, “where’s the 12mm”?, “Is that fork seal blown?” DAMN!!!! Slap was moving way too fast, way too tense, and trying to get everything done all at once. Well, as Slap was on the gas, he didn’t notice his sweet little old neighbor, Gwendilynn Bond, slowly walking up the driveway. Mrs. Bond is the sweetest 91-year-old lady on da planet, and she needed some attention. “Hi Slappy” she said in a slow scratchy whisper”. “Oh, hi Gwendilynn, have you seen Slap’s 12mm socket?” Slap said as he slipped past her towards the rims and tires. “Well…..Slappy….um….I…..don’t” she said as Slap slipped past her again without even hearing a word. Then all of a sudden it hit Slap, “What are you doing? STOP, TURN AROUND, MRS. BOND NEEDS YOUR ATTENTION.” Right at that moment, Slap took a deep breath, held Gwendilynns hand, and said, “How are you doing today you beautiful lady?” Slap looked into her eyes, and she began to slowly talk. It turns out that she has been very sad lately. “Why?” Slappy asked with concern. Well, she had lost her dearly beloved husband, Mr. Bond, a couple years ago, and Slappy didn’t even know. It seemed like only yesterday that Mr. Bond strolled up to the Slapphouse with a freshly baked apple pie straight from the oven. Yeah, it seemed like only yesterday, only yesterday. They had been together for 67 years, and never did a day go by that they weren’t together. She told Slap stories of their time together as Canadian spies, based in the Andes, disrupting the illegal sugar cane shipments heading to Hong Kong. She told story after story. We talked for hours, and we cried together. She told Slap that she has been trying to talk to people, but no one would listen, no one cared to help, life was moving too fast, and she had slowed down. She has a life story, and she looked so beautiful telling it. She came to Slap in hopes that he would listen, in hopes that he would help. Sound familiar? Mother Glamis is trying to talk to us, and we aren’t listening. She needs US right now. She has a story, and that story needs our attention. Why? Because it isn’t a pretty one; she is dirty, and she feels ugly, and she has come for our help. She needs a new story, and we are going to help tell it. The Adopt A Wash Program is simple! All you have to do is pick an area in Glamis that you want to keep clean, and adopt that area. The more people adopting that area, the better. For many folks, it is their camping spot. What this means is that you are responsible to keep that area clean, and this includes cleaning up after your neighbor. If your neighbor leaves, head over to that vacated spot and make sure it is spotless, all the way down to the last cigarette butt. If you are feeling spunky, jump on that fire pit with rakes and magnets. There is glass, metal, and trash all over Mother G, and we need to throw on our gloves and get a little dirty. Mr. Red Tail, Ms. Fringe Toed, Mr. Sidewinder, and Ms. Primrose all need our help, and they are counting on us. Mother G knows we can throw a party, but it is our responsibility to clean up after. BTW, this party is a BYOB, Bring Your Own Bag. It is our responsibility to pick up that aluminum can that we passed on our ride. Don’t look away, or think that someone else will get it. It is up to us. And yes, there are good folks that have been doing the work all along, and we thank you. But, our numbers are outweighed by the Glamis wave of the uneducated, and we are here to educate. Talk to your neighbor, spread the work for a clean Mother Glamis, and feel free to ask for help. Below you will find topics with most all the areas you can adopt, from wash 1 to Roadrunner. Pick the area and reply in that topic; your name is sealed to that area. If your area isn’t on the list, let us know. Feel free to communicate in your adopted thread. The more people adopting a specific area, the prettier that area can be. Slap’s gonna be serious for a second. Now, Slappy ain’t telling you to go all gung ho. You don’t have to do much, just at least do a little. If everybody is doing a little, in the end it’s a lot. HOT DAMN SLAPPY WANNA DANCE. It is a long, big dune that we are to travel, and that dune may never end. SLAP ARMY, LET'S ENJOY THE RIDE!

    A Slappy Thought

    Life has a way of throwing things at you, and most of the time you are not prepared. Think ahead for all the things that MAY happen on your journey, and you just might be ready to handle that unsuspecting event. Bottom line: Be prepared, for it can happen in a split second.

    3-Wheelin' (a KG story)

    Wonderful to see you KG, welcome back to da Hood. And hot darn, Slap be lovin three wheels.
  8. This....is a fabulous thread. McScrappbook material...all of it. Every now and then, something very special comes along, and it could be in the form of one simple question. A question that allows us to open doors within ourselves and walk through and explore. The doors might creek a little, they might have been closed for a very long time. One simple question... Girlfriend came home tonight after being out and wearing a glamis shirt. Stranger asked her what is Glamis while they were checking out at the grocery store. Her impression and explanation made me wonder what others say or how they explain Glamis. I know I've been asked a number of times. She explains it as super fun, like a roller coaster, it's big sand dunes up and down and sideways but without any tracks. You have to know what your doing or you will go into big holes called witches eyes. It's camping with friends, family, fire and fun. How do you explain what Glamis is. To me it's a release. It's a breakaway from the daily grind. It's nature when you don't expect it, it's challenging at times yet peaceful when you look for it. It's huge sand dunes and fast rides. It's slow rides and counting butterflies. It's avoiding bushes yet smiling at the dried flower you find in August when prepping for the season. To me it's necessity in my life at this time. Brought out what The Enlightenment of Glamis is all about. YOU are the folks with the stories, many, if not all, are filled with extreme emotions, both up and down. Explaining to someone why something is so beautiful, yet dangerous, is hard, cuz selling emotions is hard. Everybody's is different. The experience you have in your mind when you have your helmet strapped and only the sound of the engine fills your head as you move forward; you are in your own world. Or the time at the fire, when it was just you and.......you..........you...... (point at your screen and see a fellow duner on the other side, he/she's pointing back you)...". Or, standing on that dune at sunset, with the wind blowing hard, and all I thought of was....Well, you get it....How do you encompass that? A story, a statement, pros, picture? It's not that hard to do, it's your story, it's your emotions, you are the enlightenment. And this is Slappy's favorite thread, in a long while. Slap loves reading your stories and feeling your feelings. It has tickled Slap's G bone as he chews cherry taffy, skippin down the road as his toes tippy tappy. This is what Slappy's Neighborhood is all about. How do you explain what Glamis is. Is a slapptacious question Grease, well done. Thanks for sharing in Slap's Hood, it got Slap thinkin hard, about the good stuff...You is a Slappy Favorite. You are welcomed and encouraged to drop by Slap's Hood any time you feel, the door is always open.

    Yes sir GM, Slap was looking in the mirror this time...and sometimes an apology is necessary.

    A Slappy Thought

    Most folks are very proud, and ego can have a dramatic affect on ones demeanor. When you finally come to the conclusion, that maybe, just maybe, you were the one that effed it up, the world seems a bit easier. Move on.
