I've traveled all over this country
Prospecting and digging for gold
I've tunneled, hydraulicked and cradled
And I have been frequently sold.

For each man who got rich by mining
I noticed that hundreds grew poor
And I made up my mind to try "booking"
The only pursuit that was sure.

So, rolling my grub in my blanket
I left all my tools on the hole
And started one morning to shank it
For the country they call Idaho.

Arriving flat broke in midwinter
I found it enveloped in snow
And covered all over with mountains
Thick as hair on the back of a sow.

When I looked on the prospects so gloomy
The tears trickled over my face
And I thought that my travels had brought me
To the end of the jumping-off place.

I staked me a claim in the forest
And sat myself down to hard toil
For two years I chopped and I struggled
But I never got down to the soil.

I tried to get out of the country
But poverty forced me to stay
Until I became an old settler
Then nothing could drive me away

And now that I'm used to the climate
I think that if ever so
A place to live easy and happy
That Eden is called Idaho.

No longer the slave of ambition
I laugh at the world and its crooks
As I think of my pleasant condition
Surrounded by acres of books.

Maybe I have. Could be. Yep, sure could be.

And a "blue-butted schoolmarm" is a logging term (perhaps only in the North of Wisconsin and Michigan?) for a log with a crotch in it, the trimmed branch of which can catch a guy as it moves down the belt or chain and carry him into the saw. Think of a Y-shaped log.

By the way, Amos: a while back I tried to buy a hand-held star drill. I finally gave up. If you know where I can get one please let me know.

A winze, should one wish to know, is a secondary or tertiary vertical opening sunk from a point inside a mine for the purpose of connecting with a lower level or of exploring the ground for a limited depth below a level.

I am moved to ask, good Rapaire, if you have, yourself, ever hewed hard-rock in search of color? Ever cut the face of a drift? Hand tools and tons of earth and quartz to move?

I've done a little, up north of Placerville in some old abandoned mines in the California gold-rush region. 'S why I am asking.

Amos - in this day of panty-hose; "blue -butted" is a logical, though rare, extension of the Regency "blue-stocking" -- thus appropriate for Schoolmarms.

sometimes youare so littoral.

Adit - A horizontal or near horizontal entrance into a mine from the surface. This tunnel may be used for haulage, drainage, ventilation or any combination of the three. Adits in the Highlands typically average 6 feet wide by 6 1/2 feet tall and are somewhat arched

Grizzly - A grating placed over an opening to an ore pass or chute usually made of steel rails that prevents large rocks or ore from falling below.

Stope - The cavity or void created after the ore has been excavated

Blue-butted is a term usually applied to baboons, monkeys, some species of birds and one kind of lizard, but I have never heard it applied to schoolmarms -- how would anyone know? If Rapaire reforms I am sure he will give us some source references for his logorrheic fantasy, in any case.

Spinnakers are foresails, but the only connection of spnnaker with mining is inthe software world, a data-mining software module.

It would be so nice if Rapaire chose to enlighten us. Of course, it might be too much trouble since it would require a major change of purpose from "impress" to "inform".

Sigh. Maybe Mom will wallop him. At least that would be fun to watch.

As one who prefers clarity to intentional and oppressive obscurity, I should point out that a "prussik knot" is actually a Prusik knot, named after Karl Prusik, a climbing expert.

Rapaire's stream-of-semitechnical-consciousness, in contrast, is intentionally as confusing and demeaning to the reader as possible. There is a common misconception that doing this sort of thing makes the originator seem knowledgeable or important. This, I have learned from long hard experience on both sides of the exchange, is a delusion. WHile such fugues of poly-babble certainly qualify generically as BS, I don't think anyone would defend the assertion that they constitute quality BS.

Well, THAT was interesting. And I'm danged glad it's over. Carabiners can fail, but you really wouldn't expect that a spinnaker could do that. Especially after the prussik knot was so well tied, and the saddle wasn't even a center-fire rig. The main shaft was flawed, I guess, and that allowed the adit to collapse on the grizzly. Anyway, the bearing were salvaged and so was the collar so nobody was hurt. Bruised, sure, but you'd expect that from overburden removal with slurry and the after-leading halyards in irons. Fortunately, we'd truss tackled the tops, and so when the highline dropped a blue-butted schoolmarm on the stope we were all okay.

As I said, it was interesting and I'm right glad it's over!

I'm really pleased to have found the gutter helmet--what a concept! But think of what it might have done to some of the songs we love, of drunks lying in gutters--if they'd been wearing gutter helmets, would the pig have gotten up and slowly walked away, or would he have demanded one also? Would the lady in disguise have been less disguised wearing a gutter helmet?

Great thoughts to ponder, my friends. It's like as if You-Know-Who were igorning the prime directive.

I think I will get one of those Gutter Helmets for days when Mom is swooping a-southward toward the dark horizon, her poor head reeling with bad ideas and her blood pounding with the terror of a long fall toward the endless edge of all being. When it seems her acceleration is unstoppably, ineluctably south to the bottom, then I will strap on my Gutter Helmet and with the grace of God and the dexterity with which our Mother endowed me, I will swoop down and snatch Mom from the gutter. I will do this, not once, nor thrice, by a thousand times as long as Mother needs me. For I yam a true Son of Mom.

Thus have I spoken.

How nice to have a friend. I used to have a friend. His name was Andy. We'd play in the yard and go for walks together. Sometimes he'd just run away and then the dog catcher would bring him back. Once I fell into an old well and as I was looking up Andy peed on the well sweep. He was my friend except when I didn't have food. Then he wasn't my friend any more.
