SRS... is there an attachment for "heavy" tilling like, say, an engine?

A... "What a bold, sweet, and scintillating sentiment!" indeed! Great imagery.

I think, Amos, that your innuendos sometimes become too blatant. I realize you're jealous, but to discuss in public that I "hang" is a bit over the top even for you. Perhaps you might like to apologize to the ladies yourself, but I will help you.

Ladies, please excuse Amos's earlier comment that I "hang" myself. I'm certain that he did not mean to offend you, and I ask that you take my word for it that he is not always that crass and offensive. Indeed, he is almost always more so.

Gentlemen, I should also ask that you too excuse Amos's comment. He was, as I am sure you are aware, the object of vilification and laughter in the showers after Physical Education in High School and it has turned his life into a chasm of continuous shortcomings.

A tiller, a toiler
A character soiler
What makes you speak so badly.
You used to create
Good BS
But now it's horseshit, sadly!

"Have you no place to go, no home, no rooom?" he asked.
"Nay, good sir," she did reply, "and why come you here masked?"
"You live upon the streets?" he asked, with lechery in his eyes.
"Yes, good sir, and my pimp protects me from naughty guys."

Oh, he longed for her fair bod
And long he lusted it o'er
But a six-six dude with a sawed-off
Put her quite beyond his roar.

Oh pity all you the poor working girl,
Who strives to make ends meet!
She supports hereelf, her kids, her pimp,
The cops, six judges, and many elite.

I have an electric rototiller -- small, but enough for my simple needs and wants. It will turn over forty or so acres with relative ease if I guide it along and that is sufficient to supply my larder. Some salsify, potatoes, rotenkraut, avocados, heritage tomatoes, wild strawberries transplanted from a mountain meadow, an acre or so of huckleberries, some turnips and beets, a few carrots, quinoa, spelt, barley, lentils, spelt, dewberries, and perhaps some black raspberries.

Cold at night in those altitudes, but warm wherever people gather, because of their high attitudes. Old Tom the Banker says:

"The Chair she sat in, like a burnished throne,*
Glowed on the marble, where the glass
Held up by standards wrought with fruited vines
From which a golden Cupidon peeped out80
(Another hid his eyes behind his wing)
Doubled the flames of sevenbranched candelabra
Reflecting light upon the table as
The glitter of her jewels rose to meet it,
From satin cases poured in rich profusion;
In vials of ivory and coloured glass
Unstoppered, lurked her strange synthetic perfumes,
Unguent, powdered, or liquid - troubled, confused
And drowned the sense in odours; stirred by the air
That freshened from the window, these ascended90
In fattening the prolonged candle-flames,
Flung their smoke into the laquearia,*
Stirring the pattern on the coffered ceiling.
Huge sea-wood fed with copper
Burned green and orange, framed by the coloured stone,   
In which sad light a carved dolphin swam.
Above the antique mantel was displayed
As though a window gave upon the sylvan scene*
The change of Philomel, by the barbarous king*
So rudely forced; yet there the nightingale* 100
Filled all the desert with inviolable voice
And still she cried, and still the world pursues,
"Jug Jug" to dirty ears.

You want to come? I got a room with two double beds -- I'll be using one, ALONE. Just don't awaken me with what your saddle and boots are all about and fer God's sakes, remember to take off your spurs when you're on the bed! No quirts, bridles, and bits either -- YOU might be into the "rough trade" but I'm not and I'll fill your guitar so full of holes you can use it as an Aeolian harp if the screams are too loud. I'm a crotchety old gunflinger and I needs mah sleep.

No, we went to drop off Hazardous Waste and the Farmers' Market. Saw Eiseley there, bought some lettuce and spinach and one jar each of raspberry and huckleberry jam.

Starting about May 14 we'll be on a ROAD TRIP!!!! First to Chicago for a wild night near Midway airport, then a rollicking trip to Springfield, IL and a night of unrestrained carousel there. The next day, the 16th, I drive the Quincy, IL, my hometown and one ROCKIN' place for a reunion of my old National Guard unit -- we were activated 45 years ago this coming May 13! Then back to Springfield, and after that we're off to St. Joe and Indepence MO as well as Pat revisiting Leavenworth, KS where she did time while her father was in CGSC there! Then another wild and crazy night near Midway and we'll be home on the 29th.

While we're gone, our sidewalk along the street will be dug up and re-poured! We'll have a new sidewalk when we get back!

Doesn't that sound like a wonderful schedule to you? Oh -- I see that I forgot the mention that from the 16th through 18th Pat will be working on a program for Midwest Fabric Study Group in Springfield, my youngest niece will be graduating from Missouri State on the 17th, my nephew Dan will be both a new father and on the 17th receive an Associate's degree in Landscaping and Turf Management (graduating Magma Come Loudly, no less). Oh yes, Dan's daughter is due the week he has finals.

Rap, you know that Kansas is only two states away from Texas, and it's the sideways (skinny) states, you could drop by Fort Worth if you stretched and added just a couple of more days into the trip. Just a thought!

Ya can't watch Portland Cement concrete dry. It's gotta be covered and wetted or it's gotta be sealed. BUT... after that, ya get to watch it cure for six months! Of course, the first 28 days are the most exciting but that last 5% of strengthening is pretty good too.

Here is a photo time lapse frame by frame of concrete curing that I did as part of a term paper in Crete 2501.

Initial set :






18 hours; sawcut (note slight ravelling)


__________




7 days:


__________




21 days:


__________




28 days; compression break 96.5%; 30MPa spec


__________




Pretty heady days I had in the halls of higher learing. Of course, that part of the paper ain't really exciting unless until you see tha pic of the the three specimens after 28 day compression failure. Hold onto your hats!....

I didn't know you were allowed to put pictures like that on Mudcat! Oh, for shame!!! Do you still take them out and indulge in lascivious thoughts and actions as you look at them? Do you fondle pieces of concrete for pleasure? Are you "excited" by superhighways and multistory parking garages? Do you "get off" looking at pictures of the bunker's along Hitler's "Atlantic Wall"?

Have you considered professional help? Perhaps from an electrical engineer?

Oh, Portland Cement concrete highways are fookin dangerous in The Frozen White North! The joints get so large in the cold that they make a monotonous thump when driven upon and lull people to sleep. Besides that, any injuneer knows they just ain't gonna work where the sun don't shine so it's a $ thing fer yer crooked polynicians eh?

As fer parking garages, who don't get stemie over them? I got a cool story about a parking garage design problem while I was at the Hallowed Halls of UNB (U Need Brians) but it involves only ONE student out of over 80 getting a perfect assessment on the weekly assignment and I don't like to boast. It was ME! I solved it in less than twenty minutes by myself while groups of many worked on it for hours and came up short... apparently, I was the only one that knew it got too fuckin cold in the winter to meet the space requirements so I said, "Assume enclosed, heated space." 10/10. Yeah... I know... my bad.

(There is a reason that story is special to me but I'll save for my memoiries.)

MAn, what a trip. Unbe-effing-LEIVABLE. Friday flew to Albuquerque, rented car, drove an hour north to Santa Fe, got in around ten and spent the next 8 hours traipsing over the wild hill country north up to Truchas, Met wild-eyed artists and cool-eyed sculptors, a genuine brujita curandera lady who keeps a back room full of herbs, and nearly iterrupted a serious deal in the back roads of a heroin area which had us all feeling nervous for a bot. That night drove back to Albuqerque and picked up Darius and drove him back to his hotel playing catch up on old times. Next day ran around like mad things getting details ready for concert, big dinner party, drank red wine on top of antibiotics (tooth surgery last Wednesday) and get poleaxed as a re4sult. Survived. Sunday was the concert, a huge affair at the Santa Fe Lensik Theater, swarms of people--about 350 of them, I think, coming to hear Darius and his local pick up jazz group knock out some Brubeck classics and some of his own music from his career in Africa. All the glitzy artistry in the world in the reception afterwards where I met all kinds of fascinating people. The whole affair was in support of the humanitarian gruntwork being done to stop the ravages of HIV and cultural mutilation of women in East Africas, work done by the Humankind Foundation, god bless them one and all. Monday drive back to airport and catch flight back home. Magic on every hand in the Santa Fe wonderland, but I am bushed, I don't mind saying. It was old home week for me, and I loved every minute of it. Except the getting poleaxed part.

And I *always* "Mind Your Own Bottle." That's why yours get so low so fast -- I'm minding it for you.

You could retire to worse places than SF,NM. Of course, there's the scorpions, the sidewinders, the centipedes, the gila monsters, a lack of water, dust storms, the occasional blizzard, hostile natives, radiation left over from the '50s, NARPs, and similar things but don't let any of that discourage you.

and... Now, I wouldn't get near a Virginia White Tail... them SOBs is NASTY rigs! Tastey with pancakes and maple slurpup but I wouldn't wanna try to pet one with less than a dirty thirty.

As fer yer cougar, we got em but I only ain't ever seen one but three and they was going away from me at a great rate a knots. Fact is, the DNR here still says I ain't never seen a big cat up country. They just ain't there accordin ta the gubmint folks. Jus my magination. So are the tracks, I guess.
