Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, the lands around here are home to a vari­ety of unusual crea­tures. Our favorite is the Rocky Moun­tain River Hippo. Unlike its African coun­ter­part, the River Hippo has adapted to sur­vive in the moun­tains. First, they are equally happy in water and on land. Sec­ond, the hip­pos are indis­tin­guish­able from gran­ite, which pro­tects them from preda­tors. Third, they are actu­ally made of gran­ite, which pro­tects them from hav­ing to work, eat, or think. Some adven­tur­ers have dis­cov­ered Rocky Moun­tain River Hip­pos cov­ered in a green organic mate­r­ial sim­i­lar to Polar Fleece, but mostly on the north side. If you come upon a Rocky Moun­tain River Hippo in the wild, be very quiet. This is espe­cially true if you are white water raft­ing. You don’t want to wake River Hippo. Nobody knows what hap­pens when one wakes up … and we don’t want to find out.

Accord­ing to Moon­al­ice leg­end, the cal­en­dar is not fixed. It is a mat­ter of per­sonal choice. We bring this up because today (August 31) is Hardwood’s New Year’s Eve. He will be dis­trib­ut­ing party hats and noise mak­ers after the show. We invite you to join us in cel­e­brat­ing with what­ever organic mate­r­ial suits you best.
