Toaster is sad.
And he was only about 212-years-old!
But he had a good life. And he gives good advice:
Stand tall and proud.
Sink your roots into the earth.
Be content with your natural beauty.
Go out on a limb.
Drink plenty of water.
Remember your roots.
Enjoy the view.
Toaster thinks trees are very smart.
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

He never wanted it too hippy-dippy the way some of the ESPN guys were doing it back then.

(Not to be confused with the Goldberg Variations.)
at dinner recently, my favorite Buckeye mentioned a friend who performed with the hockey band. shoe-lovers that we are, the discussion took a turn toward icey footwear, and then to the script Ohio on ice. savor that phrase. here they are:
Oy! What a work of beauty!
Toaster is verklempt ….
He wonders if the band can do “Script Ohio on Water Skis.”
If not, maybe the squirrels in Ohio can give it a try.

It is one of Toaster’s favorites. He particularly likes this number:
(It’s not Script Ohio, but then again: what is?)
Who knew that the Swedish Chef was so musical?

Toaster is really miffed that the Tournament of Roses Parade nixed his idea for a Toast Float honoring The Best Damn Band in the Land.
And those green and yellow Oregon band uniforms gave him a headache.
But he is enjoying tonight’s game and is hoping for a big victory.
7 minutes left in the fourth quarter and Ohio State leads 26-17!!!
