The Idea of Order in Pleasant Valley

The Idea of Order in Pleasant Valley

The Idea of Order in Pleasant Valley (2002)

Sometimes I really appreciate the "exquisite corpse" possibilities and the ironic juxtapositions uncovered by search engines:

From a page for the Pleasant Valley Baptist Church:

Welcome to Pleasant Valley Baptist Church in Liberty, Missouri. We are a vibrant community of people who are connecting people with God and others by sharing Christ, growing in Christ and serving Christ.

From Mass Audubon:

Pleasant Valley's thriving beaver population is one of the many fascinating features of this sanctuary. When you walk along Yokun Brook, take note of the “lodges” of tree branches and mud, where these nocturnal creatures spend their days.

Maybe the two sites should get together for a community picnic? And don't forget to throw this group into the lemonade mix:

From the "facilities" page of California state government -- "Welcome to Pleasant Valley State Prison":

Pleasant Valley State Prison provides long-term housing and services for minimum, medium and maximum custody inmates. Productivity and self-improvement opportunities are provided for inmates through academic classes, vocational instruction and work programs.

And I'm sure the prisoners would some enjoy spending quality time in the park with...

From Pennsylvania Pleasant Valley Youth Wrestling:

It's always hard to be done before you finish what you came to do but all the Pleasant Valley wrestlers have a lot to be proud of this year.

And, since Pink Floyd recently buried fossilized hatchets and came together for Live 8, maybe the Monkees will reunite and play (or lip synch?) this song on a grassy knoll:

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land
Mothers complain about how hard life is
And the kids just don't understand

Creature comfort goals
They only numb my soul and make it hard for me to see
My thoughts all seem to stray, to places far away
I need a change of scenery

Ta Ta Ta...

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Charcoal burning everywhere
Another Pleasant Valley Sunday
Here in status symbol land

Another Pleasant Valley Sunday...

Fire up the grill and pass me some Bible/wood shavings/shiv/Gaterade, will you, neighbor? Thanks.

And after we've stuffed ourselves with tuna casserole, tree limbs, and testosterone -- and after the beavers chew out the Monkees at badminton -- and after the Baptists and prisoners and wrestlers play Twister for that last piece of apple pie, we'll top off the afternoon's festivities with a nightcap here:

Mr. Green he's so serene...
