Amos, Marlon Brando is doing great. We had lunch last week in a little dive he found down on the waterfront. Maybe you can join us sometime.

Maybe national politics -- you don't gotta know nothing there and you can stay on for life. It's kinda like prison that way.

Wow. It's a good thing you're not applying for a career position somewhere.

That's Ms. Eisley, MLS, you know. Eiseley, Mistress of Library and Information Science. Well, Master of. "Mistress" just doesn't sound quite right, somehow. I suppose she's mastered it, whipped it into shape, chained its concepts to her mind, and dominates it. There are, as far as I know, no leather garments involved in doing this, or at least there weren't when I got mine. Times may have changed, however.

There's an interesting thing I should mention. The School from which I received my Master's degree no longer exists. Nor does the one I went to for two semesters before that. My undergraduate college changed its name, so it no longer exists. My high school is long gone. If they ever close my grade school I won't know nothin'.

Whew! I just came home from a long trip down south: to the very small town of Price, Utah. We (two of the boys and I, along with my dad) attended Granny's memorial service. It was very nice, especially cousin Elizabeth's rendition of Little Brown Jug at the very end. Years ago when Liz learned to play the piano, Granny asked her to play that song at her funeral. So she did. Unfortunately my former husband, whose grandma Granny was, was not able to muster up the strength to attend. But he did care for her in her last years, so I don't think bad thoughts toward him.

Then we had a wonderful rest of the weekend in the bosom of the family. Oh, and a friend gave us symphony tickets so I was able to see and hear a wonderful concert of The Rite of Spring and Richard Strauss's Last Four Songs. Beautiful! But it's very good to be home.

Just watched the first bit of that there movie on yer You Tube and I gotta watch me that. And I gotta get me one a them there masks and a cape on accounta it seems to work with the babes eh. Shane should look inta them there too.

Well, I already got a cape of sorts. It's a Kmart flag I, ah, well, aquired late one night. I had worked there for three summers when I was in high school and I outworked my way from stockboy to checker/pricer to top salesman so I figured that there flag was due me. Came in handy at uni where I was Captain Kmart and fought evil on Friday and Sarrurday nights. A course, that was back when I could do a bong hit a Thai Stick and climb the residence stairs four steps at a time on a dead run. Didn't have no sword... just a 99 cent water pistol but justice was served to any and all evildoers, especially those who would open their doors when I said, "Pizza".

Nowadays I can't even run downhill, don't know where my water pistol or cape are, and don't even know where I could score some dope even if I wanted to. Even superheroes get old I guess.

Ah, Rapparee, that makes him no less incredible, nor any less a man for having completed his shuffle on this mortal coil in that masterful identity.

Ah, Amos...unless you know something none of the rest of us do, Marlon Brando hasn't been with us since July 1, 2004. He passed on then, walked through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, left this Vale of Tears, took the Ferry, kicked the bucket, croaked, left us behind, went to his Eternal Reward, became one of the Great Majority, was vitally challenged.

But it IS a good movie.

We had a fine dinner with friends Friday night, and sang until late.

If you have never seen the movie "Don Juan de Marco" imagine Faye DUnaway playing against Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp. It is a killer movie for those who truly love reality, or really love truth, or believe love is the true reality.

I loved it. We saw it last night for the second time in order to show it to a friend and it was as new and deep and sweet as the first time.

Marlon Brando is an incredible man.

I don't have to go to work tomorrow.

Of course, since I'm retired I don't have to go to work any day. I just do whatever I want to do, without a care in the world. Of course, I really really really want to cut the lawn and do the laundry and stuff like that because it's FUN. Cleaning the toilets -- WOW! I really want to do that kind of stuff!

Gentlemen don't discuss such things about other gentlemen, but if you were to crop around a sleazy public house called "Blacky's" near the San Diego docks you might run into a woman called "Galloping Gertie" who could tell you a few things about Amos and congress. You might have to "grease the ways", though, since she IS a businesswoman.

This was sent to me.

A congressman was seated next to a little girl on an airplane so he turned to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."

The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know," said the congressman. "How about global warming, universal health care, or stimulus packages?" as he smiled smugly.

"OK," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

The legislator, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence, thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea."

To which the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming, universal health care, or the economy, when you don't know shit?"

And then she went back to reading her book.

Okay, Canadians are a bunch of unwashed, surly, mean bastards who spend too much time cooped up in tiny snowbound cabins and who stomp lemmings and moose to death in fits of simple pique. They drink nothing but hoochanoo and eat nothing except flour and bear-kill leftovers. They also kick kittens.

It was a wild pancake, both fluffy and free
Alone on the prairie, a bold crepe was he
And never suspecting his true destiny
Was to end the career of the bold Rapparee.

He rolled over fences, not caring to mend,
And lived all his days without needing a friend
As he rolled into Idaho just 'round the bend
Rapparee's bold career was approaching its end.

(Etc., etc., and etc..)

None of those hybrid dehydrated boxed or frozen pancakes for us. My recipe tends to be watered down enough to cook quite thin (not quite like a crepe, but close). A Swedish pancake is probably a step-sibling of the ones my Norwegian mother taught me to make as a child. Any leftovers we used to eat them cold by smearing on strawberry jelly then rolling them.

mignardise (n.)

(1) Tenderness, gentleness; affected delicacy of behaviour or appearance; affectation. Also: an instance of this. Now rare.
(2) A type of narrow braid on which a design of crochet border or edging is worked (more fully mignardise braid); also, the design of crochet border or edging worked on this braid. Now hist.
(3) Chiefly U.S. A fancy cake or similar sweet confection, usually served at the end of a meal. Also fig.

Used in a sentence in 1631 by B. Jonson:

"Entertaine her, and her creatures, too, With all the migniardise, and quaint Caresses, You can put on 'hem."



"Rapparree needs to practice embellishing his posts with a touch of mignardise."

I think a long, colorful ballad could be found in that picture--the day the pancake tackled Rapparree.

There was syrup in his eyes, and butter up his nose,
And bits of buttered bacon sprinkled all around his clothes,
It surely was an awful fight, A terrible sight to see,
the day the pancake tackled Rapparree...
