Sonnet 19/05/01                        DLIII

        A perfect day for planting, with no sun
        To burn life from small leaves; The promise of
        Water to sustain new growth. Here's one
        Of Nature's subtle gifts, to show her love.
        You plant sweet herbs for future use, and weed
        Unwanted growth, but know a use for all
        The garden grows. Four senses gardens feed,
        And birds, who nourish fifth with evening call.
        The breeze brings cool contentment, as the day
        Slides into night. You have the future sown.
        In time, all that you plant will grow, to pay,
        With interest, labor done by harvest grown.
        With laughter in eyes, and smile touching cheek,
        You have in your garden all I might seek.

Got 114 cubic feet of mulch down in the flower beds today. No rain, just chilly wind.

Six hours later we're still hearing the thunder from those storms. I'd guess we have at least 4 inches of rain today. Every little bit helps, but I do wish it would pace itself. An inch a week for a month would be much more helpful than four inches in a day and no rain for weeks after.

I was planting tomatoes as the rain started falling from this huge mass of storms going over the top of us today. They're thoroughly watered in.

Not on the Cat, certainly, but possibly in some old newsgroup such as alt.religion,bullshit, for example.

The Diane Rehm show is interviewing an author who wrote about Orville and Wilbur Wright. Now there is a great source of pontificating and BS. Early aviation and "pioneer patents." I wonder if we could get a pioneer patent for MOAB? Has anyone looked to see if there is a longer thread extant?

Post? You WANT to POST? Well, me bucko, you only HOPE to post! Interdimensional pirates have seized control of the CPU in the server and even now they are bailing the backup bit buckets of bytes, throwing them into to seething seas of semiconductors! P-junctions are prancing the plank and if/then statements cringe in their own heat sinks! Nay, until the Forces Of Good finally prevail you can only HOPE to post, and in the meantime the black flag of "rm -r *" flies from the fan's tail!

The Texas lottery runs twice a week and I figured out a sure-fire way to win $104 every year - don't buy lottery tickets. It's more than I won when I was buying them.

I wouldn't bet on the Magic. I don't even like basketball. Now. Yankee football, I do well. Did well. Used to do well. Don't bet much anymore. Baseball? Well, it's not even a real sport unless yer a Cubs fan with money to throw away. Curling? I would but nobody carries it. The horses don't pay. So, I throw $5 at Lotto Max when the pot is $50M and has "extra" $1M payouts.

Just found out my buddy's lad has prostatitis. A tad in his mid 20s. Never heard of it and I woulda googled it long ago if my doc had heard of it on accounta... well, you know. When I read it can cause lower back pain, I near shit myself. When I read that it can be worsened by stress, I shit on my doc. Oddly enough, I immediately felt a bit better and actually just walked 1.3km without stopping. I intend to go back out for another walk tonight now knowing I might only be an imperfect asshole.

I didn't win the Lotto last night eithrer. Well, I got one number right and it was a "Mega" which means I get $1. THe interesting thing is that each person in the huge population who buys these tickets stands in the crossroads of two entirely incompatible views.   They know the statistical odds are one in 147 million that they will win the Big Tamale. ut at the same time they know that it COULD happen, and HAS happened for SOME people, so why not them?   In the endless war between Magic and Math, it is human nature to keep one ear cocked toward Magic.

I didn't win the Lotto Max last night so the party for tonight is cancelled and, as I won't be buying a ticket for the next one due to the fact that it's a paltry $13M, no party next week either.

I don't want to put a burr under anyone's saddle, but I'm off cowboy shooting tomorrow. Of course, we always eat what we shoot. Tough, stringy, and tasting of cheap beer and snoose, but ya gotta keep the population in check or they'll overrun their environment. Then the next thing ya know there'll even be clusters of cowboys in town and everywhere...in roller skatin' halls and scarin' the horses and who know where else.

Amos, your feeble attempts at punning might baiter be described as carping. You cod do baiter, but you have to be hooked on puns to do so and you do net seem to be. Commitment to the pun is needed, not some feeble (albeit reel) lines. Without it you risk spinning out of control, and I'll bait that you trout out your sinkers every chance you get. But cast away, for I will not stop yawl and who knows? Someday you might land one that doesn't get away.

Amos, one of my best long mountaineering backpack trips was up into the Olympics. We traversed a section of the range from Appleton Pass and came out on the Elwa. High anxiety a couple of times as we crossed areas not exactly ready for hikers (would have been easier with anchors and ropes on-belay).

Yer Costco don't put no Babies Breath in with the roses no more. Ya gotta buy it separate and it's $11. Worth every penny. One of the vases looks positively gorgeous. I went to Sobeys to get a matching vase... you know... like the ones I have been walking past since my Bday. None. The other vase is a tall bluish rig that is too narrow for a dozen roses and BsB to be displayed properly but it's the thought that counts. Gotta get me a pic of the nice one. I be quite the flower deranger me.

Downhill on greased skids, huh?

Amos, if you ever took the time to notice, my surname is very, very similar to that "Mr. Zimmerman" uses. It is intentionally that way to save myself from screaming mobs of groupies and a shower of "unmentionables" that I really have no use for except to stock a used lingerie shop. Suffice to say that my Uncle Bob is memorialized, as is my cousin and family friend Vern Zimmerman. I took the next name to doubly insure my privacy...and to honor Dylan ail Don of Wales.

For resons I deo not fathom I am drawn of late to long torrid poems-inp-music by the national poet of my generation, Bib Zimmerman Dylan. I have successfully absorbed and performed in public the winding tale of "Tangled Up in Blue", and tonight have begun to gingerly wrap my wits and fingers around this strange surreal gem:

      Am       E      Am
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Am       E      Am
Saying this land is condemned
          E       G    D    F    G Am
All the way from New Orleans to Jeruselem
    Am       E      Am
I travelled to East Texas
Am       E      Am
Where many martyrs fell
          E      G          D
And I know no one can sing the blues
F          G       Am
Like Blind Willie McTell

Well I heard that hooter singing
As they were taking down the tents
The stars above the barren trees
Were his only audience
Them charcoal gypsy maidens
Can strut their feathers well
But nobody can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell

See them big plantations burning
Hear the cracking of the whips
Smell that sweet magnolia blooming
See the ghosts of slavery ships
I can hear them tribes a moaning
Hear that undertaker's bell
Nobody can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell

There's a woman by the river
With some fine young handsome man
He's dressed up like a squire
Bootleg whiskey in his hand
There's a chain gang on a highway
I can hear them rebels yell
But I know no one can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell

Well God is up in Heaven
And we are what was his
But power,greed and corruptable seed
Seem to be all that there is
I'm gazing out the window
of the St. James Hotel
And I know no one can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell

Sweet you-know-who! Just remembered. I gots ta get me arse ta the Costco fer roses tomorrow... two dozen with a descent amount of Baby's Breath (WTF do they call it THAT? Babies don't brush.) fer less than a dozen with SFA B'sB anywhere else. I get's a dozen red and a dozen white. The red symbolize her pain and suffering and the white symbolize my perfection at birth. Already got Mum a card. Lobster will be on sale this Thursday. Already got a bottle (475ml) of bubbly. Hopefully, it will make up for her broken dentures which she must have by now... the roast of beef I just cooked and served is as tough as leather even when ya slice it see-thru thin. Jaysus! Somewhere in Alberta, there is a big farm sayin... "They bought that shit for $2.88 a pound! Let's ship more." NO more 'boneless' blade roasts fer MY mum. Lobster, champagne and roses.
