It's a really old box...From back in the days of my youth. The traveling monks moved on to the forests of Barstow many years ago except for a small group that settled in the hills of Muscoy to make wine and raise migratory waterfowl.

I thought they chopped all the trees down to build the Forest Views housing development and the Big Tree shopping center!

"Fictional History", who would expect fiction among those who build and play these things? Have I mentioned how I got that old cigar box from a group of traveling monks in the woods of Rancho Cucamonga?

Had a bit of a bran muffin yesterday and thought of this song. Great bit of history in that one Mr Clock.

Token bit of information for all the health nuts out there. Once ya lick the icing off a cupcake, it becomes a muffin and muffins are healthy.
