The lovely and talented Tom
with TCCMWPCW band T-shirt -
It had been an interesting year but something was missing in my life. I was bored often. One day in
November I was off for three days, had no car or bicycle, so I decided I'd
walk for six hours, turn around and
walk back. Simple plan, right?
I walked from 6am to noon, and as
I was about to turn around, a
policeman drove up to question me.
He saw my military I.D. and asked
where I was from. I replied,"The
base". He said,"What base?" I told him I was stationed at Offutt Air Force Base. He
said,"You're over 20 miles out!" Oops. I didn't realize I'd been walking that fast. I covered 43 miles that
day. I wasn't bored though.
Another visit to Evansville-I was
20 and, Tom and I hadn't seen
each other in over a year, so we re-lived some old memories.
What happens when you don't get enough alchohol? Look at the photos.
Tom, seen for the first time in stylish plastic
bag, was born Thomas Curtis Crayner,
December 11, 1965, eight hours before I,
in the same hospital. We'd been together
since 1973, although we'd known each other
all our lives. As teenagers we made
recordings as the
"TCCMWPCW Band" using assumed names.
I was Millenium Worpuscle Palimony, he
was Troy Cranium Carcus. We recorded on a cheap stereo in his living room. Patches, his cat, once attacked Tom's stereo speakers in a fit of rage over what was tearing at her little kitty ear drums. However,
technically, we DID write our own songs...or something.
