Sometimes a power line Company owns the right of way and sells the underground property to pipeline utilities. Where it is convenient gas lines are buried 10 to 15 feet under power lines. So we are hanging out in a residential neighborhood when we hear explosions in the back yard. A power line had fallen from one of those giant robot like metal towers and was blasting large chunks of dirt and rocks where it dances around and touches the ground. The power line is like a mad dog on a chain so we know how close we can get without getting struck. Before long a gapping 12 foot hole was blasted open with an electricity I can not fathom. Then Kabooom a gas line opens up sending flames 50 feet into the air. We were way too close for that but the stupid and the brave held their ground. At least it wasn't raining.

Rapaire we do not get news of fires like yours unless they effect our commute. Oblivion can be a bitch. Be Careful. If not careful be prepared. If not prepared, buy some marshmallows.

Less than twelve hours from OBLIVION! Mom, whatever are you dr/thinking? You know you have to get up and do something about the fire. Get your friend Issa to help -- this started on Shoshone-Bannock land so he should be okay with it.

Acme, good luck. I hope Mom catches whoever is stealing your spoons.

Gee. Took me a while to catch up. Kinda busy and thought-occupied for a while so I have just been goofing off on yer Facebook when the opportunity arose. Glad to see everyone is still here even if they ain't all there.

Now... what did I come in here for? Oh... yeah... my glasses. Don't see 'em. I'll look in the kitchen.

I cooked up a storm today, preparing to host a family birthday party tomorrow. Everyone had a birthday this year, so it'll be for all of us. :) An old friend is in town and most of her family (who live around here) will be over, so we chose to do it when the all can attend. I'm sure I'll be very tired tomorrow, moreso than right now. MOM's job tomorrow will be to keep track of spoons in the various dishes and sauce containers.

I think prosciutto and melon sounds like a good thing to serve when we have company on Thursday next. Thanks for reminding me of it.

Ole BL's in need of washin'
He is bound for the land of Goshen
Weather there is hot and muggy
Don't take rides in an Amish buggy!

(Fiddle break)

Way up North on the shore of the ocean
The Amish rule in the land o' Goshen
Don't need no independent thinkers,
Cut 'em up for catfish sinkers.

Yes, Rap, we're exhibiting at the Amish Acres Festival in Nappanee and staying in Goshen. We've been doing the show for 14 years. Used to be ten or so potters here, but they've all dropped out, so now we get all the pot money.

Then we are taking a side trip up to Lansing, Michigan to visit Elderly Instruments 'cause my wife needs a new bodhran. I am not going to buy anything. Oh, maybe some strings and a new Dobro slide, but no instruments. Oh, I may test drive a few, but I'm not buying. Seriously. No kidding....

Depends, Amos. For it is written that "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last." And it is also written that John had his Apocalyptic Vision on "the Lord's Day." And it is from these things that we can determine that the End will come on the day we call "Sunday" or the Day of the Sun. For in some nations and lands Sunday is indeed the first day of the week, and among others, such as the land of the French, Sunday is the last day of the week. And it has been known as "The Lord's Day" per omnia sacula sacularum. And so it is indeed the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega of days, and the day upon which John the Apostle, John the Divine, had his vision on Patmos. And so The End will come on a Sunday. And the Elect shall be raised up in garments white like wool, white like the snow, and the Lord shall say unto the Elect with a voice like unto a brass trumpet in Bb, "Git thee outa here, you elected politicians, who are like unto whiten sepulchers filled with offal, and take thou those robes off and give them unto the folk singers, the banjoists, the accordionists, players of the bodhrán, to the guitarists and fiddlers, to the harpists and the pipers and all of the scorned and despised of the Earth. Now git before I gotta smite thee!"

Sunday. Definitely Sunday.

I live in a peaceful zone, Rapp. In my county alone we probably have enough armament to fend off any incursion from Delaware and Virginia. South Carolina won't move and Florida will have drowned by the time anyone gets out of their high-rise with their walker. Especially if the apocalypse comes on a Saturday.

An interesting question: what day of the week do you think the apocalypse will occur on? Surely not on a weekend! That would be too cruel. Maybe on a humpday Wednesday?

Spring-mounted urinals. Back when Ma Bell was the only game in town, that construction would have been forward-thinking and revolutionary. There was an old WWII bomb shelter in the woods near my middle school, a popular exploration spot for neighborhood kids. Down the hill in a wooded ravine.

It's a quiet afternoon here in Sonny's North Carolina.
Brief rain moistens of the earth yesterday evening, and today the skies clear and pleasant, with small birds singing in the branches and an abundance of greenery on every hand. I took Maggie the dog across town to a bend in the Eno River called fuse ford, where she greatly enjoyed doubling her toes and dipping the rest of her self among the rapids deep in the state park part of the Eno. The new floor on the tool shed is almost complete a precise array of shiny pressure-treated joists is perfectly installed and footers of been poured to anchor the joists to a frame and the frame to the ground and of course to the walls.

By and large, I am very satisfied with my decision to remove from Southern California to North Carolina. My happiness will be complete when I find totally effective barrier against mosquitoes and midges for summer use.

Just offerin'. As I sit here, right over my head (actually a bit to my left) a Hutton saber is crossed with a repro of an 18th Century small sword. In addition to the epees, etc. there are Other Things in the closet. There is a corn knife and a Gerber machete in the workshop and a sickle in the garage. Yes, I have and do use them at times!

A corn knife, years back, damned near cut my right hamstring. We were clearing tall weeds and corn from a soybean field and the guy to my right chopped at one. I felt a pull on my jeans, looked, and said, "You cut my pants." He was sort of in shock and replied, "That's not all I cut!" This being a Boy Scout thing the Scoutmaster got to practice the medic skills he'd used in the South Pacific. Fortunately it wasn't all that deep and all I got out of it was a scar. The guy who cut me later embezzled enough money from his family's bakery business to bankrupt it and the last I knew (or cared) he was residing at the Graybar Hotel.

Rap, my daughter is a blacksmith so can probably make herself something to use should she require a durable blade. For now she uses one that is cartoonishly lightweight. The sword is fake but the hair is real, and she made many of the costumes people wore for this particular adventure.

Well, that depends on your definition of "not from the skydiving". If you mean he didn't go "SPLAT!" because his chute failed to open, you're correct. His chute deployed properly, but he died from blood loss when an eagle mistook a certain part of his anatomy for a tasty snake.

Guy over in Nevada back in the 1880s hired an old Dutchman to dig postholes. The old fella did it with one of those railroad pinch bars, jamming it into the ground and working it to make the hole. He kept the line as straight as a surveyor's layout, too. On his first day he asked how far to do postholes and was told to keep going until the rancher came to get him.

Around noon the rancher had a heart attack and died. And ever today riders say that you can see the old Dutchman, his pinch bar now about a foot long, digging his postholes and if asked he just says, "Dey come and git me soon."

First, you don't fence in armor. Secondly, you're supposed to block the cuts and thrusts. Thirdly, your opponent was probably doing something unsafe. But consider: you have a saber scar and you can reminisce about your days at Heidelberg as a member of a Studentcorps, cutting your swath with a Mensurschläger and drinking beer until bleary.

As for Truly Extreme Sports: Skeet Jumping (ski jumping while shooting skeet), ice tennis, figure gymnasics, high bump (done with cars), horse hockey (riding horses on ice and you have several "pucks"), and naked bobsled come to immediately to mind.

Some X game innovators have a knack for combining sports to create something really fresh and exciting;

Cross country bowling, Sabre badminton, Interstate wheel chair rallies, Poker skydiving and my favorite, Tour de Darts (darts vs. bikes) -fan participation is terrific.
