Make the scene? Shakespeare, Clifford Odetts, Pirandello? Brecht, Jonson, Greene, Marlowe, Moliere, Sophocles, Sartre, Williams? One of the Russians, perhaps? I think LH would make a very good scene.

Or do you mean "make the scene" as in throwing a tantrum in a grocery store?

YEah. With three days to use, I should spend two of them driving up to Orillia to pick up Chongo? Nahhhh. I pass. I'd love to see LH at the Getaway, though!! But he has to come because he wants to make the scene, man.

Hey, you'd be travelling through family territory! My Dad's family had a house in Salladasburg, near Williamsport. It's beautiful around there.

So make Chongo ride on the roof. Or in the trunk. Enjoy the view, and about now you should be getting into some lovely fall colors.

Why doesn't one of you run up to Orilla and pick up Little Hawk and take him along to the Getaway? I doubt anyone has a vehicle large enough for the rest of the Orilla residents who inhabit space at Mudcat, but I suspect you'd all enjoy meeting the primordial source of Chongo, Shane, etc.

Again with the wild referents, Rapaire!

Amos, Book 4:

12 "Therefore this is what I will do to you, Israel,
       and because I will do this to you,
       prepare to meet your God, O Israel."

13 He who forms the mountains,
       creates the wind,
       and reveals his thoughts to man,
       he who turns dawn to darkness,
       and treads the high places of the earth—
       the LORD God Almighty is his name.


Note that Rapaire is not even mentioned in there.

As for honoring the name of the place with its original name, that's a fine and high-minded justification, but it is equally true that you are being obscure intentionally under the guise of that excuse. This makes you look knowledgeable and wise, I suppose, or at least rude.

Have you considered putting in raised beds and domesticating your crop of wild referents?

An ultrasound emitter at the valve would induce nano-scale cavitation and femto-second bursts of coherent light, known as sonoluminescence. Might be worth exploring.

SRS... engineering can be beautiful too. I wonder what art could be produced by introducing cavitation at the valve although that might mess up the light transmission downstream of the valve. Be neat to try it. I wonder if a modified needle valve could be used offset from the centroid of the flow to achieve such cavitation... perhaps a concentric set of needles allowing laminar flow at the centre and at the circumference. Hmmmm... lots of problems with that, but it would be worth a shot.

I think Rapaire means the Paha Sapa: The Black Hills (Pahá Sápa in Lakota, Moˀȯhta-voˀhonáaeva in Cheyenne) are a small, isolated mountain range rising from the Great Plains of North America in western South Dakota and extending into Wyoming, USA. ...


His policy of Tantalus obscurus absurdum (teasing people by being ridiculously hard to understand) only grows doubly noisome when compounded by misspellings. Paha Sopa is a Mexican breakfast soup containing shaved espadrilles, not at all what he meant.

A few glasses of wine and a good night's sleep and I think the unconscious has sorted through a lot. I will conclude that for as sad as everyone was yesterday, there was no surprise. I just wish it didn't seem like it was inevitable.

MOM had more wine than I did so is still snoring in there -- it may be a while before she reports back on what she dreamed.

It's a humid overcast day, and I think it's time to put the dog spa away for the year. Next one who sees MOM head out to the back yard ask if she wants me to siphon the water into the garden, around the trees, or just pour it there on the lawn near the stairs. You'll remember that last year when we did that she stepped into the mud and lost a shoe in the lawn. It turned up after the yard dried and froze this winter, but she couldn't ever make that shoe look as good as the mate to wear again.

We talked to her brother, a friend of my son's, and as it happens, my son texted at that time that he wished he could be there, so I was able to hold it up for his friend, a kind of long-distance yet local condolence.

My daughter was one of the best high school friends of the young woman who died, and as we walked up to her mother I told Moonglow that she needed to simply let her Mom give her a big long hug and cry. Moonglow was going to be a surrogate for her friend at that moment in time. Yup.

Do you remember the Münchhausen-by-proxy mother in the film The Sixth Sense? The father wasn't as bad as that, he was wearing a light green shirt, not red, but I had never met him before and if he hadn't been pointed out I wouldn't have recognized him as the father of a dead child by his demeanor. He of the ultra-fundamentalist bent.

Tomorrow is the funeral. I'll get a big enough dose of BS there to last me for weeks, but I'll slough it off and come check up on MOM before much time passes.

On Sunday it will be 23,741 days since I was born, to my Other Mom.
That's 101110010111101 in a binary system. If you are three-toed and slothful, it is 1012120022 in ternary. If you have only one hand it is 1224431 in quintal. If you're twice a square, then it is   56275 in octal, and if you an ubernerd the hex is 5CBD. It is also 2,051,222,400 seconds OR 34,187,040 minutes OR 569,784 hours of which I have spent about 130,00 wandering in dreamland.

My grandmother said I was nuffin' but a broiler. But what did she know? Look how I turned out!!! Well done!!!
