Give us your Pawnee Rock newsand we'll spread the word. Warning: The following contains opinions and ideas. Some memories may be accurate. The original poetry imprinted in my soft brain was about fishing. Fishy, fishy in the brook. Papa caught him on a hook. Mama fried him in a pan. Baby ate him like a man. I tried so hard for a while to be that baby who ate fish -- fish sticks, fried catfish, fried trout, fried bluegill, and our school lunchroom's canned-salmon patties and pollock squares served on Fridays.

The only fish I remember enjoying was a channel cat baked in foil on a Scout camping trip. What it came down to was that Dad didn't catch many fish, Mom didn't like frying them, and I, the big baby, didn't like eating them. But then in the Pawnee Rock Lions Club gave me the gift of a lifetime -- membership in the Kansas Lions State Band, which that summer went to the international convention in San Francisco. Two other musicians, from Hiawatha and Lawrence high schools, ed me in traipsing around that non-Kansas city.

For lunch one day, we stopped at Fishermen's Wharf and ate unbreaded seafood: clams, broiled flounder, broiled shrimp, and sauteed scallops. Maybe it took getting out of Pawnee Rock to free my mind to like seafood, or maybe it was the freshness of the fish or the saltwater ambiance, a word permitted in San Francisco but not in Pawnee Rock. Regardless of the reason, that one culinary experience revealed to me that I could handle pleasures I had not ly imagined. Last night my wife fixed salmon patties, using humpbacks the boys and I caught in a rising tide two days before; the photo shows Nik holding our stringer of pinks.

I ate the fish like a man, without tartar sauce, and as soon as I can get my fork into some halibut, I'm going to eat that too. Not every bite will remind me of San Francisco, but at least now not every Free sex chat Pawnee Rock United States will remind me of Friday in the school lunchroom.

I am sure those women faced trials similar to their sisters on the Santa Fe Trail, so it gives me an idea of what people were thinking as they passed Pawnee Rock. The diaries also make me think of today's wagon trains -- those endless parades of motorhomes and fifth-wheelers that fill the highways during the summer where we live now. The Alaska Trail -- excuse me, the Alaska Highway -- is 1, miles of asphalt track over the Rockies and Coastal Range, and good drivers don't want to come too early or too late at that altitude and this latitude, just as wagoneers had to mind the calendar on their way to Oregon.

RV folks are much like the trail riders of the s. They are self-sufficient and generous and frugal, and they band together on the road and in Wal-Mart parking lots to ward off raids by state troopers and thieves alike. Like the one-way pioneers of old, these folks are bid farewell by loved ones whose inheritance they are spending and who wish in their heart of hearts they could go too.

She and her companion, Ray, left their place in northern California and arrived this month in Alaska. They invited me out to their fifth-wheeler when they parked a half-hour's drive from my home, and we chatted for three hours until suddenly it was time to pat their cats goodnight. Pat told lots of great stories about the s and Pawnee Rock.

One of the tales was about how she departed from Pawnee Rock. Her father had left her mother and siblings, and things were hard, as they were for many people in Pawnee Rock during the depression and war. One day, Mrs. Wycoff bought a truck that was kept in a now-gone barn next to the Miller place, which is across the street south from the old Methodist Church. Wycoff made some improvements, such as putting a wooden box in the back for Pat's seat.

And then the many Wycoffs set off from their home at Santa Fe Avenue and Rock Street, going north a block to the curve at the end of Rock, then west, then north past the salt plant. The first day was hard; they had a flat within five miles.

But they persevered and made it to Hays and, by careful use of ration cards, to a relative's home on the West Coast. Those are tough people, the kind you'd expect to find on a wagon train. The kind who, whether or not they're written up in the history books, are just like the pioneers we revere.

Most long-distance travel these days is done for fun. The Lower 48 states have been conquered by concrete, and no longer do the caravans coming to Alaska bring only those who intend to stay. Now road-smart travelers, like Pat Croff, make the trip both ways in a summer, heading south again before the promised land gets cold and appears less like a vacation postcard.

But look around you, even in our hometown. Families with gumption are moving inconspicuously across our country, looking for a safer home, a place where they can just earn a living or give their kids a better start. Like the settlers on the Oregon Trail, the vacationers on the Alaska Highway, or the Wycoffs on their way to a fresh start, they're the pioneers of the new day. Adventures at the table: I have enjoyed eating the spicy pork sausage known as chorizo since I first made its acquaintance in a Texas newsroom in But that was before yesterday, when I bought a pound of beef chorizo and my wife showed me the label.

You'll notice that beef itself is not the most important ingredient of this particular brand.

And there's this: How do you go about separating salivary glands and lymph nodes from the rest of the cow? Their haircuts were a half-inch this side of skinhead, and they had more silver studs than my winter tires do. These were not the guys you'd ask to take your daughter to the prom. Their pickup was a stripped-down black Ford of a decade ago. Its tailgate was gone, and so was its rear window.

A bench Free sex chat Pawnee Rock United States was bolted into the bed. And the truck was stuck, buried to its rear axle in wet silt. Its four-wheel-drive was taking the truck nowhere. I don't think the men were at the creek to catch pink salmon, as the boys and I were yesterday.

I imagine they were just in this gold-rush-era hamlet for the weekly weekend party and had driven to the end of the street to turn around in the mudflats. As Alaska boys, they're used to driving on gravel, rocks, asphalt, and snow and ice, but Alaskans in this mountainous part of the state rarely come across real mud more than an inch deep. So there they were, flummoxed. But I grew up in the land of mud, where the only thing worse than having to call Willard Wilson or beg a farmer to pull you out was the pure shame of getting stuck in the first place.

So I, and you, learned how to get unstuck. When I saw the guys standing around the truck, I felt a sneer coming on but I also felt pity. I strode over, thinking I'd help push the truck out, but it didn't take long to realize that tactic wasn't going to work. I got the driver to help me carry some heat-broken rocks from an old campfire and put them in the watery trench that the rear wheels had dug, and then I ordered the other guys to help push the truck as the grateful driver strained forward onto drier soil.

I'm glad I could help, I told them, and headed back to my car, which was parked on grass. They weren't such bad fellows after all, I thought. They let me teach them something. Usually, it's something that stirs up strong attraction or distaste. This time, the feeling is all in my fingers. You and I have walked along the shelterbelts and found the fruit of the bois d'arc or osage orange tree -- hedge apples. Free sex chat Pawnee Rock United States time of year, they weigh down the branches, and we find them on the ground under the tree and in the tall grass in the ditch.

Pick one up. Did you remember how they're heavier than a softball? Remember the texture? I hope you brought some water to wash the milky sap off your hand. Jim Quinn, who taught music to the junior high classes, was taking us through some love song by the Carpenters, and our mixed chorus just wasn't making beautiful music together. Quinn was a pleasant fellow and fairly new to teaching. Our classes -- I was in eighth grade -- were full of nice people.

But you remember how it is between teachers and pupils. There's always some tug of war being played out. On this day in the basement band room, the chorus was winning. We were yanking Mr. Quinn's rope a little too hard with our civil disobedience, and finally Mr. Quinn went red and snapped out an ugly word. I think we were surprised. We never had heard a teacher, other than a football coach, speak like that. And in the presence of the Carpenters' ball, too. Still, we knew we had been asking for it. One of the seventh-grade girls, a perpetually petulant neighbor who must have learned the bad word at home from her brothers, immediately announced that she was going to tell the principal.

The rest of us kids knew she was playing with fire, and we leaned forward to see who burned first. Quinn was no dummy; he knew what Mr. Stone and the school board could do if he got crossways. So he apologized in words that must have tasted bitter. That didn't work with the girl, who was the kind who could smell fear. Inspiration came to Mr. He wrote the word on a scrap of paper, pulled out a book of matches, and right in front of the chorus burned that paper.

I used to think that episode showed weakness by Mr. Quinn, yet at times in my own career I've found myself caught like he was. In his case, he was finding out that he couldn't undo an action that an opportunistic seventh-grader had taken up as self-created moral crusade. It's easy now to say that Mr. Quinn should have just let go of the tug-of-war rope and gone on with the class. It's easy now to say that I, or someone else from the class, should have said, "Let's sing.

I don't know how that episode ended officially; maybe it never was put into Mr. Quinn's Permanent Record.
