: Let's start with The Gathering ...
: Add two more names to the list, Bertha & Martha Boucher from up Canada way ... Welcome aboard! Also, make Summer's last name, Rognlie ... DUH! So, according to my primitive calculations, we now have 65 folks coming ... 13, or so, more than last year. We've decided to take the direct link to the sign-up page off our front page ... Not that we won't welcome anyone else, just no need to push it! We'd probably have to cut-off all sign-ons at 75 anyway ... PRETTY darn close now! Two more who WON'T be there, Ann & Mike Weldon. Heard from them last night ... and they wish you all well. I, for one, will miss Ann's jokes. A great teller of funnies ... accents, pantomimes, and all!
: So, updating ... The Bear Den Cabins are bought and paid for. All events are planned, facilities booked. The T-Shirt is a-comin'. Raffles are shaping up. I believe we can still squeeze a soul or two in at the Cabins, if you are interested. At the present time, theater tickets cost $11.54 each, $10 of which everyone has already paid as part of your reservation ... so come prepared with your wallet stuffed with the additional $1.54 (or, maybe, less!)!!
: Before I forget, please visit the page of ECO, Environmental & Conservation Organization, if you've yet to do so, and fire off a letter or two to the powers that be regarding the State of NC's proposed purchase of The River Walk property! See: http://www.main.nc.us/eco/
: The past three weeks in a row, I've quoted e-mail to you. A couple most positive; last week's a bit bizarre! This week'll be no different. Maybe a new feature: E-Mail Of The Week! Oh, BOY! There was a time, not long ago, when we felt the need to be all things to all people ... bent over backwards to not offend anyone (unless they REALLY made us mad!!!), bit our tongues, etc., etc. Did no good. People got mad anyway, and we just got frustrated. So, guess what? We don't care anymore. Send us BS? We might just decide to make it public. If that does nothing more than relieve OUR stress, we'll be satisfied. That's where we're headed ... to make running this Web Site FUN again, for us. Hopefully, that means for most of you, too. Anyway, a few weeks back, we posted our Mohican Press Frequently Asked Questions to quell some of the E-Mail (legitimate, as well as not-so ...). Now, this ... Send us something really ridiculous, we'll post it! We're headed towards a MAJOR change soon ... or so we think. All signs point towards it ... but that's for another time. Right now, I have an E-Mail for you ... a real gem! I did omit names, allowing for the very REMOTE chance that this is for real. It's a good warm-up for the new COURIER out this week! Keep in mind, this is not so out of the ordinary for us ... real or not! Oh, it's called, in the subject line, "Two Hot Blondes"!
: "Hey there. We, 'A' and 'B', really admire your work. It's quite
: intresting. Plus, we enjoy watching your movies. If this is not sent to
: Eric Schweig, we apologize immensely. We are sixteen years old. We find you
: attractive. Also we find your masks creative, and inspiring. We hope to
: find a man our age that looks just like you. We are high on apples and
: bread. Do you like apples and bread? We are so bored. Help us. S.O.S. My
: 9th grade geography teacher used to beat me, we just 'B'. He was sad that
: he couldn't have 'B', because all he could get was an inflatable air head
: of a wife. Actually the real story goes like this. 'B' was tardy every
: day to class, so Mr. V ... (that is his real name [real name ommited]) took 'B', a
: beautiful, young flower maiden, into the hall and there he began to yell at
: 'B'. When he was finished he kicked her in the shoe and cried mightly
: "*%%#" actually he only said dangit. And that's where the beating began.
: We're not in 9th grade anymore and we hate Mr. V .... Another thing, our
: assumption that his wife is infaltable is that he always talked about her,
: but she never came in to see him and he didn't have any pictures. We made
: masks in his class out of poster board. 'B' made a cheetah. It was very
: vibrant and colorful. 'A', me, made a lion and used a hoola skirt, I
: don't know how to spell that, as the main. Although we know you don't
: specialize in African masks, you may borrow my idea of the hoola skirt for a
: mask of any sort when ever you feel like it. We are still bored. We are
: actually very social butterflies but today is Varsity Ball at our school and
: we can't go because we are grounded and that's where everyone is. Oh, we're
: just grounded from the dance. That is our little story, what do you think?
: On a more serious note, please if you would tell us if you have any up coming
: movies. We would buy a mask but seeing how we are just teenager and we don't
: come from rich families, we have no money. We don't even have jobs yet, but
: we plan on getting one. 'B' wants to be an interior decorater when she
: grows up and 'A', me, wants to be an actress, writter, model, and mother
: when she grows up. So far I have already acheived being a model and writer.
: I model for Sheek Agency,(I think its only big in Utah) and 'B' will
: design my clothes for me someday because she also wants to be a fashion
: designer. We are best friends. We have been best friends since 7th grade.
: We're tight, just like you and Vern. So, would you consider your self a
: child of the 80's? If you watch the movies you make, is it weird seeing
: yourself on the screen? Well looks like we should go. Please write back and
: tell us what you think. May be we'll be more serious next time."
: Whew! Poor Eric!
: So, with that as a tease, we invite you to read the new Courier. In fact, we invite you to read ALL of our "Off The Beaten Mohican Trail" Pages! They harken back to an earlier day, when life here was fun, when the simplest way to gain entry to MohicanLand was merely a sense of humor, and something as innocent as "The Edict of Lainey" did not cause feathers to ruffle ... of course, not much WAS ruffled, it was just meant to LOOK that way! Life in MohicanLand! Much more on that in the forthcoming, "Companion Guide To On The Trail ..."!
: ... "Clean your Finger before you point at my Spots!" ...
: Happy Trails, All!
Dear Courier Editors,
Good to see The Courier back in circulation again. I must say, I felt terribly disconnected from the real world when all I had to read on Sunday morning were things like the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune. It is apparent from the various reports that Mohicanland is ripe for an uprising of some sort. Nefarious things are roiling around under the surface, and mischief is bound to surface if we wait long enough. Only The Courier reports the REAL news.
There is definitely something to be said for publishing an "E-mail Of The Week" column. Could be equally bizarre to anything we come up with ourselves, and would be amusing. Also might generate phenomenal volumes of additional weird E-mail in your Inbox, as crazies all over the world compete to get their lunacy recognized and published. Should we lobby for additional laughs or keep your computer system (not to speak of your sanity) from crashing with overload? Hmmm, decisions - decisions.
Many thanks for the new edition.
