That's a line of sunshine that came between the house and the garage that morning. Contrary to popular belief, the sun doesn't sit out in space with the planet turning nearby, Old Sol spends a lot of time out in the woods on both sides of our yard, travelling from the front yard in the morning to the back yard in the evening, and during the night it creeps around the ox bow down in the creek bed to come back to the front yard the next morning. This photo was when it was just peeking through those woods to see if anyone was up and watching yet.

Oh geez, everybody knows the earth doesn't just sit there with the sun revolving around it! It wobbles a little bit.

Well of course it wobbles a little bit. Haven't you ever watched those guys spinning plates on poles? They always wobble a bit.

It's the whatchamacallit - hygroscopic effect caused by the uneven distribution of the weight of the oceans on the spinning disk of the earth.

Exactly! As the Earth spins the Sun pulls the oceans in its daily journey around the Earth. This imparts a double wobble to the Earth, but we don't notice it because the "wobble waves" are so close together that we feel them as one rather than two.

Every time my dachshund utters a deep sigh and FLOPS! down to his position of rest on the carpet, the Earth wobbles a little. Then there was the time Eddie Whatnoll fell off the couch while he was having a bad dream. The tremors were felt as far away as Tierra Del Fuego.

Until we tossed him out permanently we used to have a guy come into the Library who cracked the foundations of building for blocks around whenever he fell down. The Seismographic Laboratory at the University always recorded it as a major, major quake and alerted the cops, who would reply, "Nah, Joel fell down again."

Wouldn't the act of "tossing him out" have itself been rather hazardous?

Every time the train passes a mile from here I can feel the vibration and hear the slight rattling of some framed art on the walls. The sun doesn't stomp or rattle or anything. Just oozes across the top.

For reference: (from My Fair Lady, "You Did It")

Bear in mind that in the film version this oily character was played by the absolutely MARVELOUS Theo Bikel.



Pickering Tonight, old man, you did it!
You did it! You did it! You said that you would do it,
And indeed you did. I thought that you would rue it;
I doubted you'd do it. But now I must admit it
That succeed you did. You should get a medal
Or be even made a knight. Henry It was nothing.
Really nothing. Pickering All alone you hurdled
Every obstacle in sight. Henry Now, wait! Now, wait!
Give credit where it's due, A lot of the glory goes to you.
Pickering But you're the one who did it,
Who did it, who did it! As sturdy as Gibraltar,
Not a second did you falter. There's no doubt about it,
You did it! I must have aged a year tonight.
At times I thought I'd die of fright.
Never was there a momentary lull Henry
Shortly after we came in I saw at once we'd easily win;
And after that I found it deadly dull. Pickering
You should have heard the ooh's and ah's;
Every one wondering who she was. Henry
You'd think they'd never seen a lady before. Pickering
And when the Prince of Transylvania
Asked to meet her,
And gave his arm to lead her to the floor...! I said to him:
You did it! You did it! You did it!
They thought she was ecstatic
And so damned aristocratic,
And they never knew
That you
Did it! Henry Thank Heavens for Zoltan Karparthy.
If it weren't for him I would have died of boredom.
He was there, all right. And up to his old tricks.
Mrs. Pearce Karparthy? That dreadful Hungarian?
Was he there? Henry Yes.
That blackguard who uses the science of speech
More to blackmail and swindle than teach;
He made it the devilish business of his
'To find out who this Miss Doolittle is.'
Every time we looked around
There he was, that hairy hound From Budapest.
Never leaving us alone, Never have I ever known
A ruder pest Fin'lly I decided it was foolish
Not to let him have his chance with her.
So I stepped aside and let him dance with her.
Oozing charm from every pore
He oiled his way around the floor.
Every trick that he could play,
He used to strip her mask away.
And when at last the dance was done,
He glowed as if he knew he'd won!
And with a voice to eager,
And a smile too broad, He announced to the hostess
That she was a fraud! Mrs. Pearce No!
Henry Ja wohl! Her English is too good, he said,
Which clearly indicates that she is foreign.
Whereas others are instructed in their native language
English people aren't.
And although she may have studied with an expert
Di'lectician and grammarian, I can tell that she was born
Hungarian! Not only Hungarian, but of royal blood,
she is a princess! Servants Congratulations,
Professor Higgins, For your glorious victory!
Congratulations, Professor Higgins!
You'll be mentioned in history! Rest of Servants
(Simultaneously) Congratulations, Professor Higgins!
For your glorious Victory! Congratulations,
Professor Higgins! Sing hail and hallelujah!
Every bit of credit For it all belongs to you!
Footman (Simultaneously with Rest of Servants)
This evening, sir, you did it! You did it! You did it!
You said that you would do it And indeed you did.
This evening, sir, you did it! You did it! You did it!
We know that we have said it,
But-you did it and the credit
For it all belongs to you!

Hi Mom! Sorry I haven't been around for a couple of days. I've been incommunicato courtesy of a horrendous hailstorm that blew through here Wednesday night. It screwed up some phone company stuff. Fortunately, the biggest of the hailstones were only about 3/4" so they didn't damage our cars or anything, but there were LOTS of 'em. Covered the ground about two inches deep in three minutes. It was whatchacall intense. And noisy too.

To night we prepared a nice dnnner for two old friends we haven't seen in years, and they told us a true story about a woman who carefully wove her way around the barriers at the entrance to a freeway ramp that was closed for repair, and drove straight into a huge patch of fresh poured quick-drying concrete, much to the amazement and annoyance of the men who were working there,


She finally got out with their help, and they hosed the car off and warned her to get it put up on a hoist and cleaned but she was so put out by the incident that she drove home and pouted instead.

Her husband came home and seeing she was in a bad mood tried to cheer her up by telling her the"... funny story he had heard to day about some dingy broad who drove past a barricade at a freeway ramp in a yellow....a yellow....oh, no....tell me that wasn't you....".

No, this really IS a true a story!!! Poor guy ended up with a hammer and a brick-set under the car on a crawler chipping off the remainders of concrete from the transmission case.

The summer sun comes laughing out
Over the flowered lawns
And rollicks down the warming sands
Where the beach folk have all gone.

In Spring the son a lovers dance
Comes courtly over trees
In the blush of green and hopeful hours
That come up by degrees.

But winter is a time of woe
When everybody loses
And then the sun is sulken, low,
Preoccupied with blueses.
It does not dance, or sing, or love,
In Winter, it just oozes.

Do more slow children play in streets, or does one simply not have to be as cautious when fast children are playing in the street because they are more likely to be able to outrun your vehicle?

Inquireing minds want to know.

Slow children playing are just more vulnerable to interruption, as they build their worlds with scrupulous attention to every detail; the blast of a brazen, worldly car-horn could shatter their whole cognitive world into smithereens. Fast children don't mind as they just zip things together every which way, for the sake of the play, and if a car comes by they just feature it right in without a hiccup.

What about other-worldly children, such as I once was?

I like the signs that say "Watch Children". You can run over them, back over them, and do all sorts of things as long as you watch them.

The sign "Children At Play" -- I wonder about the children who are working, like cutting the grass or something. Do they feel left out? I really don't know because as a child I never got to play, but had to work all the time to help put food on the table. Even now my brothers and I will reminisce about the days when we had to go out before dawn and kill an apatosaurus or an archeapteryx so that we could have breakfast.

Well, yes, I suppose I did. Dad used to make me work on building the house and Mom, well, let's just say she ran the House. Every day, after killing, cleaning, and cooking our breakfast (what, by the way, are "Wheaties"?) I would have to go out and make nails in my Little Handy Andy Blacksmith's Shop. For hours I would turn out steel nails: 4 penny, roofing, 6 penny, scaffolding, finishing, 10 penny -- whatever was required. Sometime in the late afternoon I'd get to make stuff for the neighbors: spearheads, swords, shackles, arrowheads, and the other things that were needed for whatever neighborhood events were coming up.

Ah, those were the days! There's nothing like tempering a good sword in the guts of a prisoner or knowing that your work contributed to the destruction of a distant monastery to assure your self-esteem in the years ahead.

You're right about that! I remember once when my brother had managed to get one down and had the critter in a headlock when out of nowhere it slammed him with its tail. Knocked my brother for a loop, it did, but he managed to keep the headlock on the beastie. Being a good brother I waded in and bashed him in the head with my club. Probably would have been better if my aim was better and even today my brother (who was nicknamed after a local dance craze he was pretty good at) is known locally as "Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump." Anyway, we did manage to have the apatty for breakfast but my brother was never the same afterward. Personally I couldn't tell any difference.

I think I realize what is going on with our librarian friend. He reads too much. All those tales from up and down the both real and imagined timelines of spacetime have got all his past lives stirred up and he is constantly being battered with pictures from ancient traumas which he has confused with the recent past (or the near future) So he gets his lifetimes all mixed up and as a result is prone to making contextually weird statements.
