It seems that you changed it back or Joe changed it for you. Interesting.

Or was one of your dogs typing that and gave you a new moniker? My dogs would love to take a shot at typing on my keyboard. I'm certain the pit bull can spell quite well, but the blue heeler would hog the keyboard and her passion to say everything at once would override the pit's accurate typing and spelling.

I dunno what it's like in your neck of the woods Rapaire, but here, the driver's license pictures are so bad, it's hard to tell WHO is looking back at you. And that's when you are sober.

If you've been drinking tea laced with Bundaberg Rum, as in the tea thread, it becomes well-nigh impossible.

Well, if you don't know I suggest you look at your driver's license. It should have your picture on it. Look also in a mirror. If the picture on the license and the reflection in the mirror are the same, you're most likely the person whose name appears on the driver's license.

(I do this every morning and evening, just to be sure.)

Just for the heck of it I am sporting a new name for now. I'm sure I'll change back, but I'm kinda tickled at the new one.

According to the news, Stilly, it was quite pleasant in San Diego today. Temperature about 80F.

I have also heard from my nephew, who graduated from the USMC Recruit Depot in San Diego last December, that because the Marines are having a difficult time meeting their enlistment quota they have taken to "impressing" folks. I thought that the kid meant flashing medals and that blue uniform, but he explained that they were recruiting by means of drugged drinks, blackjacks in dark alleys, and the old bag-over-the-head trick.

You don't suppose that Amos has been "impressed," do you?

Yes. But Barky's imminent move is becoming much easier, as she now has forty sturdy boxes and four new tires on her newly washed, repaired and filled car. Ah, the things we do for those we truly love.

Amos, is it still hot there? Perhaps your words evaporated before they had time to fly through the ether.

Mine are threatening to float away on Sycamore Creek. We're up to several rain storms a day, about an inch for each episode. And more than that, it is now raining according to each major boulevard one crosses on the Interstate. So as I drove Moonglow to work today we had distinct, discreet storms at Granbury Road, Hulen St., Bryant-Irvin, the Trinity River (an avenue of sorts unto itself), Vickery Blvd, and again at the Bluebonnet traffic circle. They probably have their own names on the weather map in effect during that 5 - 10 minute period.

I prefer that you engage in the delightful and intellectually stimulating unwrapping, finding meaning within meaning as each subsequent veil is ripped away as you would eat an artichoke, savoring each leaf until you find, hidden under the inedible choke, the goodness of the heart.

The rumpus over my death is far too celebratory, and the rumor far too exaggerated. Pray, calm yourselves, lest Mom overhear and be set back four thousand posts by an onslaught of irremediable grief.

I was commenting that in the grand array of Rapaire's many skills are included tap-dancing as well as the infamous cross-over performance of the Dance of the Thousand Veils. He calls on the tap-dancing to cover up the fact that in doing the latter, for reasons he has never answered for, the Veils of Discretion and of Good Taste are always misplaced and never easily found until some 998 OTHER Veils have been shown and duly penetrated. Their names are legion and their hems higher, and their virtues much lower, than the two he pretends to invoke here. Yet he seems to prefer any of the 998 to these last two.

Perhaps he will some day enlighten us as to why this is.

I guess we can be thankful for all the politicians being on the campaign trail, well away from here. That much less hot air really helps keep things cool.

I'm sorry, but I really can't bring myself to describe it. Suffice to say that it involves several swans, chicken fat, several members of the human sexes, fresh raw liver, a couple of live snakes, several pounds of melted chocolate, five or six largish pieces of quartzite, a copy of the original unexpurgated Kama Sutra, several white mice, and a room in a seedy motel that has one of those vibrating beds.

Beyond that I must draw the veils of Discretion and Good Taste.

It is very hot today in San Jose, where I am now, Mom. I am taking it slow and easy for the first time in years, and I must say it is a very bizarre experience, like walking around underwater.

And I have to say I am thrilled at all the support Mom is getting. A fine head of steam, indeed.

SRS, you're quite right that we don't need a bathmat to keep water off the floor. It's tacked to the ceiling to keep water off the ceiling!

The little boys are a problem though - I've got one here right now - my grandson Max. He's very cute but he wants to take over my computer and play computer games. Those upside down games are very strange - particularly the one with the balls that keep falling off.

well mom, the nephew is a deacon. it's official. it only took him seven years to accomplish what is now an 18 month process. My great-niece was really tired and I rocked her to sleep at the back of the church - so when I went to present rabbit's stole at the appropriate time rowan was snoring on my shoulder. it was fun trying to put the stole on him one handed!

but the "official" photographer took a bunch of pictures of Rowan as well - so she is now immortalized in the annals of the Episcopal church.

No Bill, there wasn't anything in that list about 18181. That's because it was all that was left to my mother (apart from the kids, of course) when he died. She kept it close to her heart, but she'd let us see it when we brought dandelions and other flowers that children pick to put on his grave. It was, she said, "their number" just as they considered "Stardust" as "their song."

Ah, I remember those days so well...our grubby chubby little hands clutching wild violets and dandelion flowers in aluminum foil "vases"...the tears...the prayers said around the grave as we knelt on the scabby knees of children...my mother gathering us around and saying "Here is the Family Number, passed down from generation to generation. Someday I will pass it on to the oldest son as it was passed on to your father by his mother."

And we children took the message to heart, and even though my brothers, tried their best to succeed me as the oldest son, I survived and Mom passed that number on to me with her dying breath.
