Fire @ Burgee Dave’s

I’ve been reading the autobiography of William Bull Meek (He of E Clampus Vitus fame) and his accounts of fires that destroyed most of Camptonville in times past. Through it all, I marveled that the historic Mayo building has survived the carnage to become the home of the legendary Burgee Dave’s restaurant.

But, to my horror, I read today that the evil flames finally caught up with the old building. It looks as if they will be able to save the structure, and the able crew is serving up BBQ and their famous Bloody Marys on the outdoor deck.

We wish Brian and Sandi all the best in their efforts to recover from this disaster.

Getting There Is Half The Fun

Buses, being an integral part of the socialist restructuring of civilization, will soon be running to the Yuba River on Highway 49. Amazingly though, this service will be a commercial rather than public enterprise, without subsides and bureaucracy. It will no doubt alleviate the current parking dysfunction, although the swimming holes may get a bit more crowded.

We here at RL wish the effort well, and hope that someday, the long suffering denizens of the north county will also be blessed with affordable transportation. That is, if we haven’t moved on to flying cars, bullet trains, pneumatic tubes or teleportation by 2040.

Bloviating From The Bunker

Any resemblance to persons living, dead or online is hardly coincidental.
