"there does seem to be a similarity between these short men and posing with a hand in an odd position in a jacket. Or is he scratching?"

It's obvious that he was reaching for his DWM and Frankieboy was about to taste lead. You know them gun totin Windthorst lads eh.

Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken Aktien-Gesellschaft (German Weapons and Munitions public limited company), known as DWM, was an arms company in Imperial Germany created in 1896 when Ludwig Loewe & Company united its weapons and ammunition production facilities within one company. In 1896 Loewe founded Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken with a munitions plant in Karlsruhe (Baden), formerly Deutsche Metallpatronenfabrik Lorenz, and the weapons plant in Berlin.

All the very best von und zus were connected.

Hmmm, that is one option, Rap. But I think I'd get there faster if I could feckin' flap.

On another note: I did make it home in time for Tom to catch Granny in one of her last lucid moments. Hospice has now been in, and they set up a hospital bed as well as arranged for some morphine. Those two things alone have helped immensely. I made dinner for everyone tonight (except for Granny, she's stopped eating), and they ate in shifts. All in all, it is a solemn but not miserable time. It would be so much sadder and more poignant if she weren't 87 and very anxious to go.

Ah, dear. Coraggio. THe passage will happen whether it is welcomed or detested. SOmewhere in between is best, a compassionate tolerance for what is. Communication continues regardless in these relationships. Stay clear!

She knows the family has "given permission" and she is surrounded with love. She can leave anytime now, restfully and at peace.

Is your grandmother in a nursing home or a private home? It's a somber time, unavoidable, so one best handled with respect and grace. Happened a couple of weeks ago with an old family friend - there can be complications due to religion (not surprising, I suppose) and that made for some angst, but he died peacefully.

Amos, did you tell the San Diego gendarmes about Don and Shane? Were they the culprits in the house, do you think?

That is the greatest gift of all at such a time.

Granny is at home. (Not the Eternal Home---yet). I'm a bit removed because I'm the ex-inlaw, but that actually helps because I was able to do the arrangements for the eventual cremation and be the liason with the funeral home because the others just couldn't handle it. Tonight I've made some delicious German soup and will serve it up in a few minutes to the hungry crowd.

What kind of German soup? Leberknödelsuppe? Aalsuppe? Schneckensuppe? Or is it soup made from Germans? If the last I suggest you cook it thoroughly in a bock stock with a ham hock.

You ever eat liver noodle soup, Amos? Or snail soup? We had them all the time when I was growing up, because we were very, very, very, very poor. We were so poor that the church mice were looked down their noses at us. So poor that we eat cow pie for a special treat. So poor that beggars and tramps gave US crumbs of bread. We didn't even have our own pants until we went into the military...we had to share the same pair for years and years, which got tricky at school and church. We were so poor we not only didn't go to movies and have a radio or television, we hadn't even heard about them.

And yet, it built character and made my siblings and me what we are today: eccentric as all hell, but never boring.

*grin* funny to see liver dumpling soup and snail soup used as examples of poverty - because I've seen recipes for them from VERY posh restaurants....

IT depends on where you get the snails, and whose liver is dumplinged.

ANyway, Rapp, I have all respect for the alleged poverty of your alleged childhood. You are truly the Munchausen of the Have Nots.

Chongo, fergeeddaboudit. You was dreamed up, not born, a synthetic revery with artificial time built-in. You was never any younger than you was the day that happened. 'Course you don't age much, either, so it's a trade-off I guess.

By that manner of reasoning, anyone ever mentioned on paper is "immortal." Needs a little stronger evidence of existence than that - how about a blood test?

Interesting leap of flawed logic. "I do not age, therefore I am immortal" completely ignores the much more probable explanation: "I do not age, therefore I am not real!"

Immortality is achieved, Amos, as long as a character lives on in people's minds and is remembered. That's why Sherlock Holmes is immortal while Jake Palmer isn't. Why do I even have to explain so elementary a principle to a man like you?

The Chimpanzee at the Bottom of the Garden

I'm going down to the bottom of the garden
I'll be back in time for tea.
I need to have a little talk there
With the winged chimpanzee.
Yes there's a chimp at the bottom of the garden,
And you needn't scoff or sneer.
He lives among the bluebells there
Quite free of any fear.
Oh there are chimps down there in the garden
They live there bold and free
But big folks just can't see them!
The only one who does is me.

A Good Chimp


I woke before the morning, I was happy all the day,
I never said an ugly word, but smiled and stuck to play.

And now at last the sun is going down behind the wood,
And I am very happy, for I know that I've been good.

My bed is waiting cool and fresh, with linen smooth and fair,
And I must be off to sleepsin-by, and not forget my prayer.

I know that, till to-morrow I shall see the sun arise,
No ugly dream shall fright my mind, no ugly sight my eyes.

But slumber hold me tightly till I waken in the dawn,
And hear the thrushes singing in the lilacs round the lawn.

Bobbie Louie Stevie,
whenever, wherever

I hardly know what to say about that poem, Stilly. It's touched me, touched me deeply. Having read it my life was completed and all other poetry and prose have, like an insubstantial pageant, faded and left not a rack behind. Other poetry, like gorgeous palaces and cloud-capped towers, have faded into air, into thing air. I know now that they were but such things as dreams were made of and their little life were rounded with a sleep.

A Test of Love

"I love you, Mother," said little John;
Then, forgetting his work, his cap went on,
And he was off to the garden swing,
Leaving his mother the wood to bring.

"I love you, Mother," said little Nell;
"I love you better than tongue can tell!"
Then she teased and pouted half the day,
Till mother rejoiced when she went to play.

"I love you, Mother," said little Fan
"Today I'll help you all I can,"
To the cradle then she did softly creep,
And rocked the baby till it fell asleep.


Then stepping softly, she took the broom,
And swept the floor and dusted the room;
Busy and happy all day was she,
Helpful and cheerful as she could be.

"I love you, Mother," again they said,
Three little children going to bed.
How do you think that Mother guessed
Which of them really loved her best?

And down the stairs did softly creep
Stealing his long dead father's gat
And hitting the road. What love is that?
Leaving her, aged, to moan and limp
Such is the love of Chongo Chimp.

Once a little chimpanzee
Was learning at his mother's knee
Of the ways of apes and chimps,
Monkeys, bonobos, orangutangs and pimps.

"Yes!" shouted the little chimpanzee
"A pimp is what I want to be!"
His poor mother fainted dead away,
And her little son went out to play.

He sold his sisters to some men
Who used them up, one died, and then
He stole his elderly father's gun,
And from his mother stole quite a sum.

He used ill-gotten loot to buy
A ticket to the You Ess Eye
Where he slipped through Immigration tight
By hiding in a tun of shite.

Now he lives in the Windy City
(A place to be in fear and pity)
Denies his sister, mom and dad:
Methinks this chimp's gone to the bad.

Granny has gone to her eternal reward. It is actually a relief, to all the others as well as to Granny herself. Three hundred sixty-four days ago exactly, my middle son came running in the house with a very subdued look on his face and said solemnly, "Granny just died . . . " I waited, a bit shocked, and he continued ". . . April Fool!"

I don't think I'll remind him. :)

Your Granny and Janie's father. Death didn't take a holiday today.

Just in case your son does remember that, you might want to talk about it with him - that jokes can't bring on events. At least not events like this. Because when tomorrow rolls around, he may think back, but he is liable to not share his thoughts, just worry about them.

Tomorrow is the annual art glass sale on campus. It gets bigger every year and most of the glass is now untouchable. I'm awfully tempted to go - they've been doing some wonderful things with fuzed glass, as well as blowing and molding. The students and faculty there are a real glass act!

My nephew, Dan, was VERY upset because on the day before my brother collapsed in the ER his father had sighed and said to him, "Dan, you'll be the death of me yet" as he checked over Dan' homework. It took quite a lot of work to convince him that it was just an expression and he wasn't guilty of anything.

Stuff like that can come back and haunt someone.

I don' wanna be now businessman
Or a monkey in a tree
Ever since I was a little ape
A pimp is what I wanted to be
Yes I am bound to pimp
A pimping chimp's the life for me
Let me beat on the ladies
A pimpin' chimp's what I wanna be.


Gonna drive me a pink Caddielac
And shoot a big pink gat
Gonna shake down all the ladiers, yeah
In a pink fedora hat
Yes I am bound to pimp
A pimping chimp's the life for me
Let me beat on the ladies
A pimpin' chimp's what I wanna be.


My momma often tole me
You should not act like this
Just think of poor sweet Chinga
And protect your little Sis
But I am bound to pimp
A pimping chimp's the life for me
Let me beat on the ladies
A pimpin' chimp's what I wanna be.

You know I love hard whiskey
And I love those big cigars
I wanna spend like a big-time pimp
And drive a big pimp's car
Yes I am bound to pimp
A pimping chimp's the life for me
Let me beat on the ladies
A pimpin' chimp's what I wanna be.
