The Florida auditor general in 2014 found that the city of Weeki Wachee had $1,164,963 in total liabilities.  The majority of the liability stems from a legal services bill from the city attorney, McGee & Mason, P.A. This bill has made it difficult to dissolve the city, because at that point the county would become liable for the city's bills.

Goofy Stuff: Bar Room Buddies

On 15 February 1981 I wrote a song I called “Passed Out,” which is curious because I drank only coffee, juices, and water then, being that I was in the military and forced to run PT three days a week.  On 29 June 1998, less than a year after we moved into Old House, I rewrote it a little, renamed it “Bar Room Buddies,” and that night I recorded it on my computer at my dining room table.
