And now that he is conspiring to run off with Penelope Rutledge and help her find True Feminine Equality by spending half of her income for her, we'll see even less of him! Sigh.

Alas, alas for little Hawk
Who got embroiled in normal talk
And missed the many great events
Transpiring out by MOAB's tents.
The roaring laughter, and the crowd
Of people interesting and loud
The mesh of magic, wit and tongue
That keep the MOAB always young
And even on her dullest days
Inspire global words of praise.
So let us mourn a jot and tiddle
For dear neglectful pal, Hawk (Little)
Who oft at joining us did balk
And so remained a little Hawk.

You missed getting a t-shirt order in, LH. Rapaire is actually going to the Utah town named after our dear Mudcat Mom, and is picking up shirts for those who requested them. And Amos is a granddad now. You've missed tons, just by cavorting with the riffraff out there in the rest of the threads and not checking in on MOM regularly.

Just be sure to get a big healthy dose of the real thing as often as possible!

No postcards from Rapaire yet. Just because it is a federal holiday, that shouldn't slow him down. He needs to send them with Gluon.

The Html gremlins strike again...

I put it in the right place,
But is it there? No chance!

I thought I might, this morning, but the day was sunny after all; I spent the morning chatting over coffee, the afternoon picking and singing with a bunch of fine upstanding ne'er-do-wells in Lemon Grove, the evening dining at a fancy restaurant down town and attending some new small theater production. A very enjoyable day. I am not exhausted!

Hey, Mom, I spent the morning doing web pages, the afternoon shopping, and now back to web pages. Keep me company as I stare at the screen and coax the scanner to cooperate with my decades-old black and white prints to get some good images to use on these pages. Looks like no one else is around. . .

I could have sworn I posted something here after Amos but before I went out to dinner. It has vanished--is that Rapaire playing tricks, maybe hiding behind a tree to see if we really do go along without him, like he's afraid we can?

Ha! Wait behind that tree some more!

Pleased with ourselves?? I should say so!! Do you realize (of course you do) what an amzing thing we accomplished that day? Years and years in the development, centuries ion the planning, millenia in the contemplation, twined and merged in that single day to produce the one human being capable of being all that young Lennon will become. Of course we were pleased with ourselves. I was so dewt-eyed and gaga over Lennons arrival, when it finally occurred, that I completely forgot to tell him about Rapaire. Fortunately, Rapaire won't notice because by the time he comes back here the thread will have gone long ahead and he will never take the time to find this one lousy paragraph up thread and read it. The only way that would happen is if he were to prove such an insufferable egotist that he searched for his own handle in the body of the thread just to see if anyone said anything about him. But that's unimaginable. No mature human would be so self-centered.

Yes, we were dancing with delight. The new father was a bit fazed, I must say, after two straight days on stand-by and assist duty. He stood for many long minutes over the bassinet in the nursery, toying with his son's fingers, speaking softly to him, admiring his features, and looking far, far with wet eyes. Thus unfolds the next act.

Know that after you truly KNOW the hurt it's not going to hurt any less, but that you sure looked damned silly sitting there examining it and that although you might be mocked and derided forever you did bring me a moment of laughter as you sat there making a fool of yourself -- sucker!

Somehow, thanks to your penetrating intellect, I am unsure of everything and am beginning to wonder whether I really was even IN Santa Monica that day. I know that all freedom begins with doubt, but why does it have to hurt so much?

Yeah, old Grampy Amos. Jist pitcher him, sittin' on the back stoop with his li'l grandkids gatherer 'round, and him a pickin' on a mandolin (and slicing the tips of his fingers off in the process) and sayin' things like, "Hee hee, I 'member back in the Spring o' '47, er mebbe it was the Winter of '48, no, now thet I think about it it musta been the Winter o' '89 er mebbe the Summer of '87, anyways, either Reagan er the first Bush was president, only mebbe it were Carter...anyways, yer granny an' me was at Woodstock, the first 'un, the big 'un, you know, and ol' Joe Cocker, you 'member him doncha?, okay, ol' Joe comes up to me an' says...now what was it? Oh, yeah, Jerry Garcia says to me, "Got a light?" an' I says, "Sorry, don't smoke" an' he says, "Damn!" and that was the high point o' my life, meetin' Jimi Hendrix like that, or mebbe it was Bill Monroe...."

And the little grandchildren sneak quietly off and tell Grandma that Grampy is reminiscing again, and she comes and quietly takes him off to bed for his nap.....

ooooh, the prospect of a new t-shirt! Size medium, maybe with a v-neck if you see something tasteful (no chartreuse, no red), in a darker color, perhaps? I kind of like aubergine, I've discovered that one lately. Green, black, blue, they're all good. Up to about $15, in addition to postage? Do you do PayPal? Otherwise, a check.

And Amos a grandpa! He kept this big news mighty close to the vest for months and months, didn't he? Maybe so his friends here wouldn't do what my Dad's friends did when I had my daughter (today--Aug.30--she's 18!), and his first grandchild--they threw him a grandpa shower. I ended up getting a big box of stuff in the mail from him, and he kept the t-shirt with a limerick friends composed on the occasion:

There once was a man named John D.
Who claimed that all children should be
Confinded to a zoo
Till age forty-two
'Except for my grandchild,' said he.

Mom:

Tell Rapaire I usually wear a large tee.

But I want him to surprise me, and make it a gift, after all he's put me through. It's the least he can do. If he does I will wear it to the Getaway.

I am leaving for Santa Monica in the morning, Mom. My adopted son is having a baby, so I shall be a Grandfather, un grand-pére, an OoomPapa. I never htought I would live to see the day. I thought I would have been eaten by giant squid, or diced up in a motorcycle gang battle, or drowned in a gale off the Tierra del Fuego, or stubbed my toe to death, by now. But no, I am ALIVE! Unto the second generation...as of tomorrow morning, as best we can tell. The kids are at the maternity ward now, preparing for inducement. Induction? Anyway, I am going there in the morning.

I am glad you're here and will see you Monday or maybe before.

Dear Mom,

Whilst Bunny and Amos and all make puns about great opera and greater music, I just remembered that I really should let you know that I'll be gone starting Friday afternoon for a whole week.

That's right, Mom! We're heading off to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Northern Arizona, Navajo country, and guess what, Mom!

We're gonna spend a couple of nights in the town named for you: MOAB, Utah! That'll be our last nights out, 'cause we'll be heading back right after that so I can go to work (yuck!) a week from next Monday.

You know, Mom, I betcha they have MOAB tee shirts and things in MOAB, Utah. And I'll betcha that I could pick some up if a) people would send me their sizes and some color preferences and, b) their addresses and, c) reimburse me in some way for the tee shirts. Think of the impression that could be made at Getaway (sigh!) if MOABites wore the appropriate tee shirt.

But I'll be around until about noon on Friday, Mom. Try to bear up under the burden of my absence, okay?

Your favorite and the apotheosis of the gene pool,
Rapaire
