Tell us where we can learn more about this group, what is important to them, and what stories they tell themselves? Are there any novels or texts written? What, in other words, is in their canon?

Dear old Rapaire, always ready and hot to trot when the subject turns to long, narrow explosive objects.

I think we ought to send the Legion into New York State to secure it for Obama.

Just as soon as enough acetone gets here.

Arkansaw stuck himself to the tap on the beer car. Lizziebelle and Rowdy stuck themselves together. Peeleg managed to stick himself to his Ronny Ray Gun (shoots genuine sparks when you pull the trigger!) which he managed to stick to the Colonel-General's...backside. And she is stuck to the statue of the Unknown Idahoer out in front of the Hovel.

I told 'em, "The Legion Always Sticks Together!" but I think they're going to change the Legion's motto when this is over.

Just to make the whole Legion thing more interesting, it's started to snow and later today that will become rain AND snow. The Legionaires and Legionettes started running around, sticking to each other and to things and I'm not at all sure that I'd want to sleep with my face glued to Red Ale's posterior as Saddle Sammy had to.

It ain't a purty picher up there right now, nossir!

Well it turned nice down here and I'm heading to the back yard right now to grab the dogs and bring them in for baths. Those two girls have gotten a tad stinky over the past few weeks of cold cold weather.

Two is enough for us. They're clean and smell sweet and are quite frisky. I chose the warmest part of the afternoon for bath time, but with time left for sunshine so they could dry completely before sunset. It is still January, after all.

Wisdom runs deep in Texas, so they say. From politics to dog-bathing.

When in doubt, consul a Texan.

Most of the dark and windy nigh: hordes of rain drops, sweeping in giant formations down from the skies like malevolent, cold-eyed hussars from heaven, filling the reservoirs, ending the shortfall, flooding the streets, eroding the mountainside homes of the rich, drowning the mosquitos, soaking the motorcyclists and pedestrians, drowning worms and nourishing the lawns and flowers of Southern California. More expected today. Film at eleven.

I don't need an awful lotta luck --
Only three things I need in life,
To get me through the bog.
They're a smooth running pickup truck,
A beautiful affectionate wife,
And a clean-smelling, obedient dawg.

I'm glad I took advantage of yesterday's lovely weather. Today is not cold, but it is overcast and windy. Not so nice. And I had to walk six whole blocks home in it from the car dealer up at the corner by the freeway ramp. I decided to take it in after I left the house so I didn't have a jacket (I usually drop off my son at the school bus and drive back home and head straight in the house so I don't need a jacket.) The truck is leaking coolant a few drops at a time for the last few weeks. Time to catch it before it becomes serious.

MOM agrees--within limits. She took her pickup truck in for work and it needed so much work that she had them do it then let them KEEP the truck to pay for the work. It's shank's mare these days.

Speaking of dogs, one of the staff at work lost her golden retriever to old age last Fall. Yesterday they were down in Arimo (that's a town, not a condition) and fell hard for another golden. Well...you know danged good and well that they now have another dog.

Nice!

Most days when I check the mail it's because I heard the truck pull up at the curb (my office is next to the front door). And there is usually a cat with me. So today for variety I brought Cinnamon into the house. She thought it was a lot of fun, sitting and looking through the glass door at the world pass by (usually she watches the world from the back yard) and then was happy to see Anthony come up the walk. I had to sign for a package so let go of her collar and told her to sit. And she sat very well for most of the transaction, though she did finally stand and politely sniff his shoe. Oh, those killer pit bulls. You never know what they're gonna do. (He said he dropped a bite of his hamburger on that shoe when he was eating lunch. She simply detected the few remaining ions of grease, and knowing this dog's nose and intelligence, probably also knew the breed of cow and what state the meat was shipped from.)

My best friend when I was in elementary school was from a devout Catholic family. She distilled it down to its essence: "If you're ever in a car crash and you're sure you're going to die you can sprinkle yourself with some radiator water and that's good enough to get you to heaven."

But infants operate ENTIRELY on faith -- they're MADE of the stuff!! THat's how they survive.

And, the other thing I miss about this question is the word "valid".

a. What does it mean in this context?

b. Whose decision is it to make or to announce?

Amos - there are over 80 thousand hits on google for "infant baptism versus adult".

*grin* I personally doubt if sprinkling, submerging, drinking, dunking or anything else with water makes any difference to God; but you know how hung up administrators get about procedure.

AH, well. I stand reproved, for trying to make you dig it all up and condense it for me.

I cannot help but wonder whether those who get wrapped around the axle on the precis emoment of watering have any sense of the disproportionality between their exegisis and the take of Genesis.

Speaking of sprinkling water. . .

there has been a spot on my garage floor for a few weeks. Yesterday I took the pickup in to see if it was the radiator (proximity being my sole diagnostic tool in this matter). Nope. Water pump. Set me back $500 smackers this afternoon. Oy. Some heavenly intervention via a cash infusion would be mighty welcome about now!

Well, was the floor mature enough to assert its faith before you sprinkled it? IF so, even water-jacket water becomes sanctified through some divine process of sublimation, and your prayers may be answered1.

Dear MM:

Counting is done in this wise. You start with A Number -- any will do. You then add to it by a single whole number and increment it to this new total. Thus, if we start with "1", counting goes 1...2...3...4... and so on. This works for any starting number. If we begin with your age,for example, it would go like this: 51...52...53...54....55... and so on. See? I leave it as an exercise for you to work out how this would apply, for example, if you begin with your IQ!


I did NOT miss.
