This takes place in Missouri, in the 1940’s. He’s headed to land. He’s trying to escape. He could be doing something else. He’s going to use the bathroom once he gets there. He’s intelligence. He’s going fishing. This guy will get to where he’s going. He’s a likeable person. It looks like he had an injury but is doing better now. He’s a pleasant guy. He’s articulate. He likes to go to interesting places. He’s not a party dude.
Some of the rocks are bigger and some are smaller. There’s a lot of water there too. When he gets to where he’s going he has something that he’s doing. My brother is who I am looking for. He appears to be carrying something in his right hand. Maybe he’s coming from the store. He has quite a ways to walk but he’s heading there. This is not only in Missouri but it’s the Missouri River. I’ve been there once and it was wide and flat. He’s handsome. He’s pretty good looking. He’s good. Let’s call him Dennis. You don’t have a shovel in your hands (laughter from Dennis)!
It feels very dry there. It’s spring time. That guy better get out of the water because the water is rising obviously. It’s a cold spring day and the guy likes to get out and do a lot of walking because there are a lot of pretty girls there. He’s walking along the water enjoying himself. He’s feeling robust. The grass is green. It’s a cool day. He’s crossing the creek on the stepping stones. I hear gurgling, running H20. I hear an airplane. This guy is partially bald. He’s losing his hair. This could be an indication he is married with children and maybe retired!
