“To the gang at Joe’s, There’s not many things about southern California that I have missed since moving to Oregon a few years back. However, there’s not a day that goes by without a faint urge for a schooner, a special and a couple of eggs. I’ve searched far and wide for good eggs up here, from Portland and Walla Walla and down to Ashland, hell most people don’t even know what the hell a pickled egg is. The poor ignorant clods. Anyway, it was good to see the old gang there this last weekend. Dipper, give a hey to Mark and tell him sorry I missed him. The minute I got home, I proudly displayed my new “joejosts.com” shirt to my wife, and her reaction: “Jesus, not another Joe Jost’s shirt.” Life is good. Take care.”
