Randy Wyrick, Freedom Writer

Howdy and welcome to Town Talk Towers, where the Led Zeppelin can’t be played loudly enough and we want to elect Eddie Van Halen as president.Movin’ straight into it.Da Boys are back in townHere’s hoping all the ski industry pioneers who helped build this place, and every other place just like it, are basking in the glow of a job well done, as well as a little under the influence of Too Much of a Good Thing. The International Ski History Association was in town this week, celebrating the glories of the Good Old Days, while telling the world about the glories of Things to Come. We’re talking Pete Seibert, filmmaker Roger Brown, Aspen Originals Miggs and Dick Durrance, Vail’s Pete Seibert and Bob Parker, Arapahoe Basin and Keystone founders Edna and Max Dercum and Winter Park pioneer Jerry Groswold, and Billy “I’m Too Young To Be An Old Timer” Kidd. A Lifetime Achievement Award went long-time ski writer Charlie Meyers, who’s still a stud after all these years. Here’s hoping they had Too Much Fun, and they’ll be back soon. Also, if you see Deb McClenahan, who helped ride herd on the whole thing, tell her it’s time to relax.Single Black FemaleThe following ad appeared in a newspaper.SBF seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I’m a svelte good looking girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods. Riding in your pickup truck. Hunting, Camping, and Fishing trips. Cozy winter nights spent lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. Rub me the right way and watch me respond. I’ll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. Kiss me and I’m yours.
