    I think I’ll float over and see how Tom Cross is doing on the 13th hole.


  2. - Lil Enchilada - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:11 am:

    If you prefer an indoor pool, come to my house and visit my “finished” basement!


  3. - Darienite - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:16 am:

    Shrinkage, definite shrinkage!!!!


  4. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:17 am:

    Willie works his precinct.

    (Must be a lot warmer in Oswego than Chicago)


  5. - RNUG - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:17 am:

    Darn … my beer just floated away.


  6. - Muffin Man - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:23 am:

    Is this Oswego Willy? No way!
    Is this “Free Willy”? Perhaps. Only The Shadow (and his wife) knows.


  7. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:27 am:

    Leave the cannoli, take the life raft.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:27 am:

    Rich!

    I thought that pictures like theses would never see the light of day!

    That is indeed me…

    Yes, those are my golf shoes I am wearing.

    I was afraid to get them wet.

    I would have worn a shirt but my thinking was, “I have SPF 90 on, I need to get a base tan ready, and its too early in the season to really burn, so what the hey?” and off my shirt went.

    I was on my way to the Wal-Mart on 34, and I want it to be noted, I am making a complete stop at the “stop” sign. Upon arriving was tossed out for “No Shirt” and their policy on that … and my golf spikes were making a terrible clicking sound, or so THEY say, I dunno.

    I am sad that this picture is out there, I do not apologize for saving my golf shoes, but to the Wal-Mart greeter that kicked me out I am sorry, I just wanted some Cannoli, I hope you understand …


  9. - Amalia - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:28 am:

    thanks, needed some laughter!


  10. - Res Melius - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:34 am:

    (Ode for O.W.)

    Taking a break,
    From Capitol Fax.
    Hope we don’t get,
    A Leisure Tax.


  11. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:36 am:

    “That would be a nice place for a Tom Cross Yard Sign!”

    “I hope no one calls me, I forgot my Bluetooth and don’t need a ticket …”

    “Got … to … hurry … must … save … polling place ….”

    “Wonder what they are going to serve tonight at the Kendall County Lincoln Day dinner … better NOT be river trout…”

    “Mrs. Smith, wrong finger to say ‘Number 1′ …”

    “That is the LAST TIME I say, ‘I’m king of the world!’ on the balcony during a storm”

    “Ok, I go left, Yorkville, right, Plano … ”

    “I picked a bad day to forget to get my dry cleaning…”

    “Ma’am, if I lift my feet, my golf spikes might pop my raft … yea, I know … just turn your head, count to 20 and I will be gone …”


  12. - OneMan - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:37 am:

    Oswego Willy paddles furiously to avoid drifting into Aurora…

    Oswego Willy calling the superintendent of the Oswego 308 School District

    “Yeah, the flooding isn’t that bad, kids should be able to get to school, it’s not like water is spewing forth from the floor at Oswego High or the power is out at Oswego East”

    Yes, only Willy and I may get that last one


  13. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:42 am:

    “Build right here … it never floods …”

    “Great, now I have to paralell park this raft…”

    “Last time I use the ‘Caine Mutiny’ as a metaphor …”

    “Which way to the Oberweis Ice Cream parlor?”

    “I gotta remember, when walking into the District Office, ask nicely for a Tom Cross t-shirt …”

    “Remember, you are still in Oswego, this isn’t a scene from ‘Deliverence’ …”


  14. - titan - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:45 am:

    I had presumted that O Willy had more sense than to swim in that sort of water Or is Oswego so exurban that it is sanitary enough to do so?


  15. - Norseman - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:47 am:

    The Fox comes a knockin.

    Yes! No mowing this week.

    Kids, you wanted a pool.


  16. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:48 am:

    - titan -,

    Look, if I had my “floaties” maybe, but then who would save my golf spikes? Having priorities is hard!


  17. - Norseman - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:50 am:

    For you Muffin Man:

  18. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:54 am:

    “The last place I saw my laptop floating was on Hafenrichter …paddle, paddle, turn right!!”

    “Well, serves me right, Jason said plagues were coming for me …”

    “If Governor Quinn comes by, do I get a picture? I have been working out …”

    “Boy, I hope - Anonyomous - never sees me like this, I will never live it down …”

    “That is the LAST deck I build with RP Lumber … now where did it float after this corner …”


  19. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 11:58 am:

    Blago wig: $1.50 at local garage sale.

  20. - Boone's is Back - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:02 pm:

    Whose ever heard of Sepsis? Hand me another beer.


  21. - MrJM - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:08 pm:

    “Miller ain’t the only one what owns a watercraft…”

    – MrJM


  22. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:09 pm:

    “New Buicks are in early this year …”

    “The one day I forget my Man-zere….”

    “Perfect. How do I get on I-88. I left my I-Pass on the Inflatable Tire last night …”

    “I defend Pat Brady, now this. Coincidence?”

    “…’No Mr. Willy, the shirts are for Tom Cross supporters, not you’ … ”

    “Rain, rain, go away, Oswego Willy wants golf today …”


  23. - Wensicia - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:11 pm:

    OW: “Man, this cruise line trip isn’t exactly what I envisioned when I ordered my ticket.”


  24. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:11 pm:

    “Man, I hope the paparazzi don’t see me catching a few rays.”


  25. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:12 pm:

    “If you can’t walk door to door for the GOP, float!!!”


  26. - Amalia - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:14 pm:

    if it keeps on raining, levee’s gonna break. and apparently did.


  27. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:18 pm:

    “AA said our con$ulting firm needs exposure. This should do it.”


  28. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:20 pm:

    “Last time I ask the Village for more recreation things to do on the river …”

    “So I say to the Oswego PD, ‘Do you know who I am’…. next thing I know, they give me a pink raft, and push me towards the flood …”

    “I know the law, drive-thrus do not require shirts if you float through …”

    “The more I think about this on my raft, Kate and Leo probably couls have fit on that foor if they tried …”


  29. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:24 pm:

    “Where did I leave my toga?”

    “Don’t mind me, folks, I’m on a ‘listening tour”

    “Darn, I wish I had the floatie with the beer holders!”


  30. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:24 pm:

    “…No, Mr. Willy, a signed petition on your chest is not good enough for ballot access, you should know that, flood or no flood.’ …stupid election laws!”


  31. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:26 pm:

    “Some Oberweis Ice Cream and I would be in heaven!”


  32. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:34 pm:

    “What the! … Is that … the Rauner Chicken…nope, just a duck….”


  33. - CarrollCounty - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:46 pm:

    “Authorities are again reminding citizens to avoid contact with floodwaters.”


  34. - OurMagician - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:47 pm:

    “Does anybody know where I can find a good plummer?”


  35. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 12:53 pm:

    “Yes, he was a man, no shirt and golf shoes,… and he said he would be right back, and grabbed our pink raft, babbling something about a Cross or something, 13th hole …jibberish, actually… Yes! No shirt and golf shoes… Yes in Oswego … Yeah, it was like a real bad episode of ‘Cops’ … Maybe we dunno, his name ould have been ‘Willie’, is that important?”


  36. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:00 pm:

    Willie: “I feel adrift in today’s GOP…”


  37. - LincolnLounger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:05 pm:

    When Oswego Willy says the GOP needs a field operation, he really means it!


  38. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:09 pm:

    Willie: “Last I remember, I went out for drinks downtown with Cross, Radogno and Oberweis….”


  39. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:14 pm:

    From the opening scene of the upcoming movie “Bachelor Party 4 - Oswego”


  40. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:18 pm:

    Willie: “Just when I thought this week couldn’t get any worse….”


  41. - Sunshine - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:31 pm:

    Almost pretty in Pink!
    Up the creek without a paddle!


  42. - Cincinnatus - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:38 pm:

    Willy paddles to Oberweis Dairy for a delicious ice cream!


  43. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:41 pm:

    “I knew that Ice Cream tasted funny …”

    “I was going to the worst place in the world for a “Reagan Ruler” and I didn’t even know it yet. Weeks away and hundreds of miles down the river that snaked through the Bloomington like a main circuit cable plugged straight into Springfield. It was no accident that I got to be the caretaker of the GOP Modeerates and their memory any more than heading back to Springfield was an accident. There is no way to tell the “Reagan Rule GOP story” without telling my own. And if the “Rule of 80%” is a story, it might really be a confession, then here it goes…”.


  44. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:42 pm:

    Let’s be honest, I’ve looked worse, ok?


  45. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:42 pm:

    Willie, lol.

    “Never get off the raft.”


  46. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:44 pm:

    Sorry, I was looking for Mangoes …


  47. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:45 pm:

    By the way, if you’ve never seen it, check out “Heart of Darkness,” the documentary by Eleanor Coppola, Francis’ wife, on the filming of “Apocalypse Now.”

    Blow your mind. It’s amazing them any of them came back alive and with their noodles.


  48. - Anyone Remember? - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:51 pm:

    “Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in!”

    Could it possibly be Wordslinger punking Oswego Willy?

    Anyone else find it curious this is a picture of a person afloat in water, cut off from the internet … and there have been no posts from Michelle Flaherty … . Hmm …


  49. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:52 pm:

    Oh snap.

    I was going for “the Hangover 4″ but Rich covered that one pretty well.

    “I demand to be taken to Commander Jo Galloway!”


  50. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:52 pm:

    “My orders say I’m not supposed to know where this pink raft is taking me, so I don’t! But one look at the ILGOP, and I know it’s gonna be hot!”


  51. - Joe from Joliet - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:52 pm:

    Gee, Rich, when you said you had a place at the lake we didn’t realize it was Lake Brigadoon.


  52. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:54 pm:

    “I went down that river once when I was a kid. There’s a place in the river.. I can’t remember… Must have been a gardenia plantation at one time. All wild and overgrown now, but for about five miles you’d think that heaven just fell on the earth in the form of gardenias…”


  53. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:55 pm:

    “I was going to the worst place in the world, and I didn’t even know it yet. Weeks away and hundreds of miles up a river that snaked through the war like a main circuit cable plugged straight into Kurtz. It was no accident that I got to be the caretaker of Colonel Walter E. Kurtz’s memory any more than being back in Saigon was an accident. There is no way to tell his story without telling my own. And if his story really is a confession, then so is mine.”


  54. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 1:55 pm:

    “Raft? No one said anything about a pink raft!”

    Commander Galloway - “Geez OW, you’re in the ILGOP for crying out loud!…”


  55. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:01 pm:

    - Anyone Remember -

    ===Anyone else find it curious this is a picture of a person afloat in water, cut off from the internet …===

    Do you want to know where my WiFi is on my Pink Raft? I don’t think so …


  56. - 47th Ward - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:02 pm:

    Hey, man, you don’t talk to Oswego Willy. You listen to him. The man’s enlarged my mind. He’s a poet warrior in the classic sense. I mean sometimes he’ll… uh… well, you’ll say “hello” to him, right? And he’ll just ignore your comment. He won’t even notice you. And suddenly he’ll grab you, and he’ll throw you in a corner, and he’ll say, “Do you know that ‘if’ is the middle word in life? If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, if you can trust yourself when all men doubt you”… I mean I’m… no, I can’t… I’m a little man, I’m a little man, he’s… he’s a great man! I should have been a pair of ragged claws scuttling across floors of silent seas…


  57. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:12 pm:

    “I love the smell of the Rathskeller in the morning… that gasoline smell…it smells like… victory…”


  58. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:12 pm:

    “Oberweis don’t surf!”


  59. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:14 pm:

    Willy didn’t get much USO. He was dug in too deep, or movin’ too fast. His idea of R&R was cold rice and a little rat meat. He had only two ways home: death or victory


  60. - Rich Miller - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:15 pm:

    “You are fighting for the biggest nothing in history.”


  61. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:15 pm:

    Some Housecleaning if I may …

    - Bluefish -, well done! Very good!

    Everyone with an alcohol theme, if Rich didn’t ban …Yikes the things that Pink Raft couls tell!

    The boat/Rich Miller referneces, awesome.

    - LL - you know I mean it!

    - OneMan - , funny local flavor, and to all good stuff, don’t stop, but I felt y’all needed a tip of the cap.

    - wordslinger - I have heard of the documentary and there have been a few times I was tempted to grab it. Once I get “Toots” completed, that will be next.

    - wordslinger - and - AA - good stuff! Can never go wrong with Apocolypse Now

    Rich Miller, dropping the Apocolypse Now references for clarity, good stuff, and - 47th Ward -, that was Priceless.

    Finally, Thanks Sam, …Frank


  62. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:16 pm:

    LOL, I’m not sure if I like Willie better as Kurtz or Willard.

    But, they were really two sides of a coin.


  63. - Anyone Remember? - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:18 pm:

    ” ‘Stuff’ … charging a man with ‘corruption’ in this place was like handing out speeding tickets at the Indy 500.”


  64. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:18 pm:

    ===I’m not sure if I like Willie better as Kurtz or Willard.===

    ….

    ===But, they were really two sides of a coin.===

    The answer to that … is yes.


  65. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:21 pm:

    “Oswego, I’m still only in Oswego… every time I wake up I think I’ll be back in the jungle…”


  66. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:25 pm:

    The last to try the “Reagan Rule of 80%” went missing for months, a letter finally arrived, he was with the Blood Oathers. It read, “Sell the house. Sell the car. Sell the kids. Find someone else. Forget it! I’m never coming back. Forget it!”

    I was on a Pink Raft, floating to the abyss


  67. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:25 pm:

    Willie, on reviving the Illinois GOP:

    “Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service. It was a real choice mission, and when it was over, I never wanted another.”


  68. - Anyone Remember? - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:31 pm:

    ” ‘Willie,’ I don’t know how you feel about this shrimp [from the Rathskeller], but if you eat it, you’ll never have to prove your courage in any other way.”


  69. - Grandson of Man - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:35 pm:

    When life gives you floods, bring out the old raft and make a party of it.

    That’s what I call making the best of a terrible situation, and also one of the coolest pictures ever.


  70. - Ghost - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:42 pm:

    As it turns out, Oneman is in fact an island. We appogize for any confusion.


  71. - train111 - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:49 pm:

    If OW could get 3 or 4 more rafts out there, the entire GOP caucus could have a ‘floating meeting’


  72. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:55 pm:

    - train111 -, for ya …

    “Look, I don’t mind the HGOP hitting me up for tickets to the “Caucus Cruise”, but hey, taking my shirt and sending down the river, was that called for?”


  73. - Cincinnatus - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 2:56 pm:

    OW goes belly up…


  74. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:23 pm:

    “OneMan is an island”

    LOL


  75. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:26 pm:

    “I can tell you right here and now, Willy is one of the smartest, sharpest, brightest guys you ever want to meet.”

    “You mean the guy on the pink raft, drinking, with his shirt off, baggy shortsm and golf shoes on?”

    “(pause)…Sorry for wasting your time, our secretary will validate your parking, and let’s forget I even spoke about … (OW yelling and slurring to get attention of the two, responds) Hey, OW… yeah … hi …”

    “Let’s just forget the whole thing.”


  76. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:30 pm:

    “Next slide … THIS is our nemesis, Oswego Willy…. Yeah, the shirtless guy… on the pink raft, yes … oh, I don’t know… that might be a beer in his hand, you can deci … yes? … Golf shoes, right … No, this is the buffoon … Look, he may, or may not, be passed out, ok, that is not the point, the point is he is our nemesis … “


  77. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:36 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Ha. Ha. How does it feel OW to be made a mockery of? Not too funner, is it? Tweet back where you got the sweet raft! #JasonCollectsLazyRiverRafts


  78. - dupage dan - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:37 pm:

    Dammit, I spilled beer on my Garmin GPS. Now I’ll never find my way home.


  79. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:42 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - What a joke! A picture of OW on a raft, with Golf shoes on, no shirt, laying down in the flood …ok, that’s cool… Dang It! #OWDoesAllTheKoolStuffDadSaysNoTo


  80. - wordslinger - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:47 pm:

    Willie, what’s the new movie? I ain’t got it?


  81. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:54 pm:

    “Perfect. I finally get going, now I have to go to the bathroom …”

    “I will say one thing about Jim Oberweis, when he looked me, dead in the eye, and said he was sending me down the river, he MEANT it.”

    “Oswego Willy enjoying the whole ‘Flood Crawl’ experience a bit too much.”

    What is not known, is that Oswego Willy rarely wears shirts, so a picture with a shirt on, is worth quite a bit more.

    “…’Lit-Mus’ … (in the distance) ‘Test-ers’ …

    “getting closer, ‘Lit-Mus’ ….in the distance) ‘Test-ers’…”


  82. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 3:56 pm:

    ===check out “Heart of Darkness,”===

    Got to check that out.


  83. - D P Gumby - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 4:00 pm:

    “Wait a minute. I think I’ve figured out how to float this pension thing!”


  84. - Norseman - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 4:01 pm:

    The yodeler is shouting. Oh, Willy, may the flow be with you!


  85. - Jake from Elwood - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 4:09 pm:

    The picture has more of a “Weekend at Bernie’s” vibe to me, but maybe its just because I grew up in the 80’s.


  86. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 4:15 pm:

    Still playing the game …

    “Lit-Mus” …

    (far away, on another raft) “Test-ers”


  87. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 4:22 pm:

    “Eigh-ty”..

    “Per-Cent!”


  88. - Just The Way It Is One - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 4:23 pm:

    Between torrential downpours yesterday afternoon, local resident known as “Oswego Willy” ponders a run for election as the latest, outspoken GOP Office-Holder in the area. While comfortably floating about, Mr. Willy was quoted as chuckling aloud, “Hey, if ya just can’t BEAT the flooding, JOIN it!!!”


  89. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Apr 19, 13 @ 4:26 pm:

    - AA - … lol

    “As I float on my pink raft, intoxicated, aimlessly drifting, I recall the great advice I once got …’Plastics’…”
