- Career Objective

Give me a job!

- Professional Profile

All of this waiting is driving me nuts. I can't pass a drug test but I still think I can drive a shuttle bus for the mountain. I need a free season ski pass.

- Profile

Henrietta ran off with the former steer-wrestling champion of Buckskin County. Horace is on Ski Patrol and Hortense has shacked up with some dude she met at the Buckle Bunny Saloon. He wears tight Wranglers, a big belt buckle, drives a diesel pick-up, and has some problem with his lip. There's always a bulge in it and he spits a lot. His name is Clyde-Cody, I think. It's hard to understand him when he talks because of that lip/mouth problem. Horace has a ski pass, darn it, and I want one too.

I finally have a job! I'm working at Tires-R-Us mounting snow tires. Why do you locals wait so long to get your snow tires on? I qualify for a merchant ski pass! I work the midnight to 7 a.m. shift so I'll have the whole day free to ski. I am a little tired but I think after a nap in my Subaru and a latte I'll be ready to bust out some turns on Heavenly Daze. See you on the slopes!
