I sent it quite some time ago. I thought you'd gotten it. Never mind; I'll check on it when I get home. That'll be Monday, because the PO isn't open on Sunday and I'll be flying all day tomorrow. In any case, I'll send it again. You may assume that many cuss words are flying; pick out the ones you deem most appropriate.

Thank you for Rapparree, clever and glib,

Thank you for Little Hawk, never unready.
Thanks you for those who post sometimes (quite wisely)
And thank you for MMario, and thank you for Eiseley
Thanks for the flak and the banter and chaffing
Thanks for the posts that reduce me to laughing
Thanks for the fantasies, mad and insane
For Chongo and Corridus, and perhaps also Shane.
Thanks for the MOAB, the house of all knowing
Where welcome awaits when there's nothing else going.
Thanks for the MOABites wit and aplomb,
Thank you for Mudcat, and thank you for Mom.

Thank you for Big Mick and thank you for Max!

And a happy Thanksgiving to one and to all!!

And he IS living a dream...one in his own head. Perhaps hospitalization and medications, or even electro-convulsive therapy, is in order. Then again, a frontal lobotomy might better serve, assuming there was anything in his frontal lobes to start with. But then, assuming that Shame WAS lobotomized, how would anyone know the difference?

I'm ESPECIALLY thankful for the last!!

Lordy. Can you imagine being Shame? Drinking the dregs out of beer cans discarded in the dumpsters or in the gutter, smoking fag ends cadged from coughing consumptives, being slighted by Sudbury sluts because of your stink, denying the evidence in your sliver of mirror about your syphilitic sphincter sores and the dental decay rotting your jaws away, all the while knowing full well that you'll be buried in an unmarked grave, forgotten by everyone except those to whom you were in debt at your death?

Be thankful!!!

If you WAS me, man, you would reelize how flippin' great it is to be ME. You would turn yer back on the flippin' idiotick life you are livin' now, move to North Ontario, and start growin' dope, datin' hot chicks, and bein' a majerly cool dude fer a change instead of, like, bein' the flippin' looser you are now, eh?

But none of that is gonna happen! You are doomed, man. Doomed. There ain't no hope that you are gonna change yer boltheaded way of life and become a cool dude, eh? Not a flippin' chance!

Meenwhiles, I am walkin' down the street in alls my glory, a flippin' legend in my own flippin' time. All the women want me. All the men (except maybe Don) wish they was me. I am livin' the dream, man! The dream that most guys can only flippin' dream of....I am livin' it EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE.

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the US. I have many things to be thankful for:

1. Having had a brother from 1948 to 2011.
2. A good marriage.
3. Being mostly healthy.
4. Being able to pay make ends meet and a tiny bit left over.
5. For having had a long and satisfying career.
6. For good friends.
7. For Mom.
8. BUT MOSTLY BECAUSE I'M NOT SHAME MCBRIDE, THE PRINCE, NAY, THE ULTIMATE, OF LOSERS!

MOM stopped by the grocery store earlier this week to order a pre-made Thanksgiving dinner. She said with as scattered as all of her kids are she's not going to the trouble to cook if none of them get here today. But she's hoping a few will, hence the ordered dinner.

Better get over early if you want to have a visit with her, she's drinking cider out on the sun porch and I don't think it's the sparkling variety.

I have just performed the latest of at least seven fish funerals this year. Here are the words I read over the porcelain bowl as they go off on their long swim:

Oh hush thee, my baby
The night is behind us
And black are the waters that sparkled so green
The moon or the cold looks downward to find
At rest in the hollow that wrestle between

Where pillow meet pillow
Then soft be thy prayer
A weary beat flipper
Is curled at thy knees
The storm shall not wake thee
Nor shark overtake thee
Asleep in the arms of this slow swinging sea

Where pillow meet pillow
Then soft be thy prayer
A weary beat flipper
Is curled at thy knees
The storm shall not wake thee
Nor shark overtake thee
Asleep in the arms of this slow swinging sea.

We wuz 42 seven and ninety some
On the way to Forty-three.
And the wind blew high, and the wind blew low,
And it boiled up a follerin' sea.
As we trimmed our sheets, and froze our feet
On the way to Forty three!

On the long sea road, with a BS load
Such merry souls were we,
As the main yards groaned midst the holy stones,
On the way to Forty-Three!


We was short of hands, and wuz far from land
Not a beachhead could we see,
And the rollers came on every hand
In a dark and wind-torn sea.
But we never blinked, nor slept a wink,
We was bold as bold could be,
On the way to Forty Three!

On the long sea road, with a BS load
Such merry souls were we,
As the main yards groaned midst the holy stones,
On the way to Forty-Three!


Oh, the lee rail drowned in the whistling sound
Of the foam caps blowing free,
And the cold sea roamed by the hatches coam,
And the bilges smelled like pee.
But the hands were stout, and they all turned out,
When the bosun's pipe sang wee,
God bless us all, on that cannon ball,
Making way for Forty Three!

On the long sea road, with a BS load
Such merry souls were we,
As the main yards groaned midst the holy stones,
On the way to Forty-Three!

You are old, Father Amos, the young man said
And your hare's grown exceedingly long
Yet you still play guitar with a capo and pick
Do you think, at your age, it is wrong?

In my yout, said the old man, I took to the sea
And fought in bars from Olso to Aden
The scar tissue resultant quite addled my brain
So with picks and with capos I'm laden.

You are old, Father Amos, the young man said
And your...Shut up! you nasty young bounder!
If you cannot keep a civil tongue in your head
I'll feed it to sharks and to flounder!

Well, I never! said the young man, completely aghast.
Oh, surely, the old man replied
I doubt that you could do it at all very well
No matter how hard that you tried.

Last night we had Alice to dinner; Alice is 78 years old and leathery as a working bridle, with bright black eyes that are always laughing. She is bright of soul, having been through six hells in her many years. She is a wrangler and a rider and a lover of beaten dogs and good horses.

I served a nice dinner of brown rice with vegetables and nuts, broiled bison flank steak, red wine and salad.

It was nice sipping wine and talking to Alice. I sang her "Buffalo Skinners" and we talked about all sorts of things. Then she went home and we washed all the dishes so we would not have to deal with them in the morning.

There's a rare cold snap blowing through my SOtuhern California town, with gray skies and rattling branches, and a dank chill to it all which I am ill equipped to survive. I suffer, and wish for summer again. I am even wearing a sweater. But to no avail!! I am wearing my wooly bedroom slippers, tyoo!! But nothing works!!

Then in my fit of chilled shivers I remember Eiseley, whose patient fingers made me a pair of beautiful warm green woolie socks for my footsies. I hasten to my old bureau and dig them out, and put them on!!! Ahh, relief!! Warmth!! The chills subside and I can think clearly once more.

So today I am grateful to our own Ms. Eiseley whose perspicacity and wit are matched only by her dexterity and generosity of soul.

Thank you, Ms. Eiseley!!

Left my vorpal blade out in the rain,
And it rusted 'til I can't use it again
And I don't think I can take it
'Cause it took so long to make it
And the Elvin smith won't work for me agaiiin!
Oh, noooooooo!

The gods decree the man who battles,
Takes his stand and roars and rattles,
Takes what he has and stands for truth,
Fights on for justice, gilt and sooth,
Shall be rewarded life composed
Full free of ruth, and warm of toes
And by his heart-full use of Self
Shall gain composure, and good pelf.
While he who far from struggle bends
And to assert his truth forfends,
Shall slowly --as he condescends --
Succumb to spiritual bends
And like some sanctimonious Hessian
Be all undone by decompression,
And on the heights, shall fall in flight,
Because, when low, he would not fight.
