All the bad things you thought you might one day read had happened to Keith Richards...

Was falling out of a tree even on the list?

A Figian squirrel must have run up a tree with Richards' little bag of drugs.

after having his blood changed to prevent dying from heroin. after staying up seven days in a row on a drug fueled speed laced binge, after sobering up and continuing to milk that cash cow every five years...that's pretty funny. why was he up there is my question...just relaxing, most likely, i think?

anyhoo. this is a big reason i like ann's blog. i came for the politics and stayed for the slice 'o life.

I came for the NYT, but I guess we have to read it ourselves today. She's out of town.

Any onlookers have been handed the greatest 'vacation story' of all time. "I saw the guy shoot the Archduke!" would maybe rival it.

Mick has long claimed to be a monkey man; perhaps Keith was jealous. (Sorry. I earlier tried a line involving "ya-yas" but it didn't quite work.)

If Julia Butterfly can prove that even the deranged can climb trees then why not Keith?

Was it the ugly tree? Anbody get a branch count?

I kept wanting to work in the line "No one I think is in my tree..."

Pat Patterson said...

After a while Keith woke up, covered in monkey poo and coconut husks, and assured the horrified onlookers that indeed, "No one I think is in my tree."

Pat-
"After a while Keith woke up, covered in monkey poo and coconut husks"

This is unusual how, exactly?

Pat Patterson said...

Coconuts in the palm tree, monkeys in the palm tree eating out of the coconuts and QED, monkey poo and coconut husks. Maybe the monkeys didn't like the last Stones album or the ten or fifteen before that one.

As my wife just said as the story appeared on TV, They don't call them the Rolling STONES for nothing.

Once upon a time you dressed so fine

You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?

People’d call, say, beware doll, you’re bound to fall

Outta the tree

Now you don’t seem so proud

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on the ground

"Standin' on the gallows with my head in the noose.
Any minute now I'm expecting all hell to break loose!"

One of the legacies of the sixties!

He`s not quite the 'monkey man' anymore. Maybe he`ll go "acoustic."
