He's hiding in the desert! On the run with an unknown woman! No trace of the VFR! Had plastic surgery to render him unrecognizable! Had a blood transfusion in Switzerland like Keef! Partying with Jim Morrison in Paris!

So what you're saying is, he's beyond worm food.

At the track they say the fast guys brake at the last marker, the top 10 wait until they see the Lord, and the winner doesn't brake until he sees Opus. . ..   :bigok:

I believe that I was one of the few who tracked Opus down on that trek.  As I recall, they were very, very interesting days. . ..   :gerg:

The penguin and the XX hottie - those were the good ol days for sure...


You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack  -You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile- You may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife-
You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

Found the date (June 30- Opus Missing?), unfortunately not archived down to that depth. Wouldn't that have been a resurrection hoot?   :pope:
