Brews, Brats and Bats

This month’s typical Excentric Reader is our good friend, Tom Buroojy, of New Jersey shown here with Bernie the Brewer, mascot to the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team. Bernie seemed to get excited while looking at the Big Picture Page. Tom, never without a copy of his favorite publication, stopped by the concession stand for–what else?–a brewski when he bumped into Bernie, who never passes up a photo opportunity. Soon, they were arm in arm singing the theme song to Laverne and Shirley. Related posts: Typical Excentric Reader Typical Excentric Reader Typical Excentric Readers

This month’s typical Excentric Reader is Nan Anders, of Sun City, AZ who visited Pebble Beach, Monterey and other coastal California cities with her favorite publication in tow. On one of her stops, Nan paused to get her picture taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, along with her Excentric. In her note, Nan also mentioned she was traveling with Julie and Kevin Cislo, her daughter and son-in-law. Nan is hoping they find a home soon so she can send them a subscription. We complete a great care package.   Related posts: Typical Excentric Reader . . . Typical Excentric Reader…

This month’s Typical Excentric Reader is Randy Seal. His accompanying note stated, “And the Story goes; t’was the very last day of the year 2014 when Randy Seal reads the Sedona Excentric ‘Astrology For The Weak’ to the snow ducks perched in this Cottonwood yard. Lucky Ducks.” Little did Randy know he’d be the last Typical Excentric Reader to grace the pages of this paper. Unless, of course, Randy knows someone who wants to see the publication continue. Thanks, Randy, and all the other Typical Readers. Related posts: Typical Excentric Reader Typical Excentric Reader Typical Excentric Reader Typical Excentric Reader

This month’s typical Excentric Reader is Joan Bowen of Cornville, AZ. Joan took a liking to last month’s cover story, as it had the bones of a king dug up in a church driveway in Leicester (pronounced Lester), England. Joan was born, grew up and worked in Leicester near that very church. Her current husband first thought the bones to be those of a previous suitor of Joan’s. DNA tests proved him wrong, but not before he left a note declaring that if he was to go missing, to dig up their driveway and garage. Related posts: Typical Excentric Reader…

This month’s typical Excentric Readers are, from left to right, Nancy Welbaum, Amy Gray and Rita Rusch (The Party Sisters), with cousins Joellen and T.C. Brown. They are shown reading copies of their favorite paper, namely the Sedona Excentric, while working at this year’s Festival of the Superstitions in Apache Junction, AZ. Judging by the way each is posed with their copy, T.C. seems to be the most literate among them, as he realizes that with satire, you must read between the lines. Thanks, Rita.

This month’s typical Excentric Reader is Tom Buroojy, our favorite Typical Excentric Reader. Tom sent is this picture a while back while he was preparing for street parade of some sort. he couldn’t recall is it was Labor Day or Independence Day. It most certainly wasn’t Thanksgiving Day, although he did watch that parade on television. Tom showed up before the rest of the crowd and relaxed with his favorite paper, the Sedona Excentric. We want to thank Tom for his continued support through the years. Related posts: Typical Excentric Reader . . . Typical Excentric Reader Typical Excentric Reader…

This month’s typical Excentric Reader is Tom Buroojy Well – it’s where Tom was supposed to be. He had a copy of his favorite paper, February 2014 issue with him on vacation in Scottsdale one very hot day. Rather than fry or misuse the paper for a sun screen, he rested it in the shade, along with a plastic spoon. According to Tom, the spoon was laying in wait for the ice cream vendor due to arrive soon. Tom went inside and waited for the familiar tune blasting from the truck. Take heed of the headline, Tom.

This month’s typical Excentric Readers is Nan Anders, who hails from Sun City, AZ. Nan is pictured here on vacation in front of the Lone Cypress, one of the most photographed trees in North America. The really old tree is located between two of world’s most well known golf courses. The cypress has been scarred by fire and has been held in place with cables for 65 years. While Nan is considerably younger than Lone Cypress, and not held together with wires, she stands a majestic figure in her own right.

This month’s typical Excentric Readers are Pat Morgan and Ellen O’Connell. The accompanying note read: We respectfully submit this photo from somewhere in the Bronx, NY. A dedicated Excentric reader, Pat Morgan, is on the right. A newcomer, Ellen O’Connell, is on the left reading the Excentric to her pet bird, species unknown to the human race! Best wishes, Kathleen Sullivan. Thanks. We assume Ms. Sullivan took the photo. Sadly, Ms. O’Connell seems attached to a wooden bird.

This month’s typical Excentric Readers are Drew and Arie Smith of Fort Worth, TX visiting San Antonio for a weekend, shown here in front of the Mission San Antonio de Valero with their Excentric. Roughly 200 Texan defenders fought courageously here, but eventually succumbed to 1500 soldiers from the Mexican Army. Their bravery inspired other Texans, and 6 weeks later, the Mexican Army was defeated at the Battle of San Jacinto, thereby ending the revolution.  While the Alamo has served as a variety of purposes, such as a church, school, hospital, etc., and even  the alleged location of Pee Wee…

This month’s typical Excentric Reader Ernie, (last name withheld for reasons unknown) who lives in the Village of Oak Creek, some nine miles south of Sedona. He sent this picture of the Atomium structure while vacationing in Brussels, Belgium.  The Atomium was constructed as an exhibition for the 1958 Worlds Exposition. Ernie was at that original Exposition and recently decided to return for a visit some 55 years later.  It was still there – an amazing sight! Especially from the windows at the uppermost sphere. Ernie always takes his favorite newspaper on his trips to keep up with important happenings…

This month’s typical Excentric Reader Colonel One Eye, shown here with two eyes. Colonel One Eye can be seen along AZ highways throughout the year watching over Verde Valley youth picking up trash left by litterers while participating in Folksville USA – a virtual anti-litter town organized by Gary Chamberlain, a member of American Legion Post 135 in Cornville, AZ. A program called Bag Ready Jobs empowers youth groups to develop personal and civic responsibilities, fund raise, and keep America beautiful. It would seem Colonel One Eye had both eyes working when he read a copy of the Excentric, freaking…
