  1. I have been really worried about you, knowing you live in California and I have been investigating some possible solutions for when the water runs out. It looks like the best one is saving and drinking your own urine. However this should only be done as a last resort: http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2011-03/fyi-it-ever-ok-drink-your-own-urine

  2. Tube, since I have been ‘doomsday prepping’, I have a room that is stocked from floor to ceiling with bottled water and it is YOURS whenever you send up your unique smoke signal from your top floor corner office in the underground bunker overlooking Washington, DC from Oakland, CA. Man, I got yo back! You have gots to know that! LOL!

    “Tube, if the water runs out.
    Don’t take the piss.
    Just go without and give me a shout.
    I’ll hook ya up and quench your thirst.
    But pay my bill ’cause it comes first.”

    ROTFLMAO!!! Love ya Tube! “wink*

    But seriously, I got yo back!

      Thanks again Shelby Tubularsock knew you’d cover Tube’s back! And thank you so much for the offer. But bottled water ……. aaah? Tubularsock has also done some doomsday prepping and filled his underground bunker wine cellar to the brim. And even extended the whisky bar. And as George and Tubularsock say, “Bring It On!”

    California Dustbowl 2015 – Year of Searing Irony. It’s beginning to look like Kansas and the MotherRoad is Dead.


    • tubularsock says:

      Well Don, maybe not just yet …… this may only mean a reverse migration. With old Mercedes and BMW’s people escaping the dead and drying landscape of Cali-forn-i-a with their tattered mattresses on the tops of their vehicles and a latte in hand they move along Route 66 which had to be renamed to Route 99 because of the backward trend. Yes, Kansas and Oklahoma are starting to even look good to some as the MotherRoad back stretches out in front of those who are seeking a better life. And YES …… “2015 – Year of Searing Irony.”

  4. So Tubularsock, will you be moving along too? A nouveau ‘Oakie’ to be sure! But I keep trying to imagine all these California dreamers blending in with the whole flat-earth Kansas mindset. Oh the culture shock! Still, as long as they don’t have to recycle their own urine, maybe it’d be worth it. – Linda

      Well Linda, Tubularsock will not be leaving California but I do like the image of Tubularsock as a “nouveau ‘Oakie'”. That would almost make it worth it. From childhood Tubularsock has been promised that any time now “THE BIG ONE” will hit the State and we’ll all fall down. In 1989 the Loma Prieta Earthquake almost brought the house down with Tubularsock in the second story. Time literally stood still as things feel about him. The standup piano was rapidly racing across the room toward Tubularsock when the earth came to rest. That was one of Tubularsock’s high adrenaline moments. Tubularsock was higher than a kite!

      But then Tubularsock was told by the scientists that THAT WASN’T “THE BIG ONE”! Well shit ……… so still Tubularsock waits.

  5. Damn. Personally, I just hate it when pianos attack me … though I’ve more than earned their undying hatred, the way I’ve tortured and mutilated them over the years. But sounds like it’s been okay for you — and waiting for The Big One certainly gives you something to look forward to every day. Bonne chance!

    Perhaps you could stock up on sake before the drought takes all the piss out of you. Oh well, at least the lawns and country clubs will be well manicured.

      Excellent idea Jeff. Tubularsock will start with breakfast.

      Oh yeah! Never fear people will be crawling to the fence line of the country clubs to try and lick the runoff as it flows in the streets. Sure security will be necessary.
