Yesterday the confines of the tiny but prolific Higley Secret Cave was, for the first time ever breached by invaders from the North country. A Dark Wizard accompanied by two Evil Minions...ah...enough of those half truths...

Had a very nice visit yesterday with Cliff Ball and Sons (the Ball family name is in 4 good hands). Cifford & Co. stopped by for biz reasons but still is the first ever allowed in to see what the 'shop' really looks like. Boy I'll bet they they were disappointed!!! Haha

Really nice folks...maybe I'll let some others in someday, but don't count on it! Smile

Thanks Cifford and best of luck to Andrew and Christopher...or is it Christopher and Andrew...

All I can say is Wow! No literally, that's all I can say. I was sworn to silence by...oh, I daren't say the name. I'll tell you what I can, from what fractured memories are left....Driving down HWY 5 we were suddenly surrounded by Black SUVs (my first thought was Crap, not again! But then I remembered where I was headed) and escorted off of the Freeway, took a potty break and then we taken by blindfold up to Higley's Fortress of Doom.

Doug's deep booming voice guided us in, coming from some unseen sound system. Upon being admitted past no less than 6 electronic THICK Titanium security doors amongst a maze that cornfused even me, we then walked through what turned out to be a hallucinogenic mist (something Egregor would love I am sure) that makes it difficult to now distinguish what was real and what was a hallucination. I seem to have an image of a garden gnome in my head for some reason, but I digress...Let's just say, real or not, the secrets we learned were very worthwhile and we were not disappointed! We got a hands on lesson in the grindshow - believe me, this greenie needed it! And hey, THERE BE MONSTERS HERE! After seeing a decades old picture of Doug surrounded by monsters, I could see that his path in life was pretty well decided. This is a man of much history, practical wisdom and integrity and I am honored to have been granted admission to The Cave. And I assure you it was not a dream, despite the fact that we awoke in the parking lot of an In n' Out Burger just off of HWY 5, surrounded by burger wrappers and faces covered in In n' Out secret sauce. Maybe it was the munchies from the mist. Yeah, that's it.

But I do have proof of the visit, something I didn't have on the drive down...a beautiful beastie along with his own tent, all thoroughly committed to lifting dollar bills from every passerby they can. I look forward to giving it a spin, it sounds incredibly fun and compared to what I do, a vacation!

Clifford, how lucky can you get? Escorted into the INNER SANCTUM! Allowed to pass the veil of hidden mysteries! Just call me "William the Green" (with envy)!

Clifford,

You're in for a lot of fun, and turned Doug into Disney's own Hell's Angel. It's a win win situation.
What would Wavy do?

Actually in full disclosure mode...the inner sanctum is but a small converted bedroom (steeped in aura).

Also, in fact, I am being turned into a Disney Hell's Angel by a TRUE ANGEL (who wishes to remain anon.) who showed up prior to the sale of the set up from a far away land. I do not agree that the 'Angel' should remain anon. but of couse will abide by the wishes.

Also Mr. Bill...Mr. Ball learned no secrets. haha. (that I'm aware of)

This is like Batman saying, I just keep my cape in the hall closet, next to the Yahtzee game ;-P

Remember, we are Bizarrists heart and soul here and we relish the aura and always see it, no matter what our eyes may try to deceive us with.

It's good to know you are hooked up! Maybe the sale can pay for charging the batteries and some iron spikes to dress it up a bit. Or a leather jacket with Biker Mickey giving the bird. Wait-a-minite, that is difficult with only 4 fingers.... Smile

No secrets? You forget who I am Smile I got my share of secrets, at least the ones I need right now. Doug doesn't realize all the secrets he has!

The 'sale' did a lot more than that! It performed the seemingly monthly extraction of fat from fire routine which facilitated the 'hooking up', otherwise there would have been a diversion of funds by the War Dept to what she deemed more pressing matters than my mobility. Tell ya later.

I think the only secrets I have left is what brand of Ball Park hot dogs I eat.

oops.

One more thing...While I have a few Higley items already, I never ventured into the Grindshow side of things. I thought it sounded like something fun but wasn't sure if or how I would do it. Well, my friends, among the things that made it outside of the Fortress of Doom in my possession was a book of Higley's Top Secret Secrets for vacuuming up dollar bills from the wallets that pass by. I have read this twice now and I gotta say this is pure gold. This is the difference between a 90 pound amateur wrestler with glasses and Andre the frickin Giant. You cannot possibly read this and not know exactly what to do after reading this. If you were thinking about getting a Higley but are unsure of how to show it - trust me - you will get COMPLETE instruction on EXACTLY what to do to make money. And the beauty of Doug's expertise allows you to use the same setup for any Higley you want to try it with. Nothing difficult about it, you don't have to be a "pitchman" or "carneyfolk". Your set up does the selling for you and people hand you dollar bills. Children will adore you, women will swoon and you'll be the envy of men. What more could you want Smile
