Sometime this week I'll re-visit my old duty station, Ft. Sumter. I hope that it's in better shape than when I last saw it.

Amos, if Dani needs a Decoder Ring, I'll check with my friend Fargo North. He's in that business. Developed the so-far-unbreakable 2 bit encryption algorithm, he did. I'd explain it to you but it would undoubtedly be too complicated for you to understand.

C4 all his troubles? That would indeed be "interesting".

I received an urgent communication from a lad earlier today enquiring after a delivery that he made to my humble abode whilst the Pats were in the process of thrashing their third opponent of the Yankee Football season. I went fire forward immediately. Normally, I would have fired upon opening the door when being taken away from a Pats game but, when I saw he was bearing gifts, I lowered my weapon. When he said "Mooze and bar clams.", I safetied backward and accepted. I even took time to tell him the score in the Pats game before I said, "I gotta get back to the game. Thanks." and shut the door. His message read, "Try the mooze yet?" Normally, I tell people to "just leave me alone" but I made an exception in this case and responded as follows...

Nope. Beer and chicken wings on Sundays and Mondays (football)*. Tuesday is garbage day upon which all leftovers are eaten or chucked. Wednesday is diet day with fruit & veggies. Thursday is diet day with fruit & veggies and beer (football). Fish on Fridays. So it'll be Saturday at the earliest, later if the weather is warm.

* Week 2, 4, 6... are wing weeks.** Week 1 is chili week as it's always warm enough to open the windows. Week 3, normally Bratwurst, hot Italian, etc sausage week (see week 1 for supporting details) has recently be rescheduled to burger week (BBQ looks possible) as Coop has lean burger for $2.49, Vlassic pickles on 50p off with coupon attached to jar. HINT : The coupons are on old stock (and in my wallet) but the new stock is in the rear of the shelf. Vlassic is USA. Do not support you local Coop brand pickles as they are from India. Note that Coop has the best price on Vidalias.

**Wing weeks may be altered upon a vote by quorum the preceding week but mooze and bar clams are NOT options on accounta I ain't tellin NObody shit! Also, wing weeks may be altered to Sal's Pizza if Sal has the 16 Works pies on for $15. Best buy in town!!! Plus, I can stagger there and back... them there $515 pizzas do not interest me. AND, the buggers are cold by the time ya get yer truck outta impound!

PS RG3 sucks! WHO IN FUCK DUNNO HOW TO TUCK???!!! What the fuck was he doin pretendin ta be a back in the first place? QBs do NOT fall forwrad in open field. I hope the dumb fuck got a hefty club fine fer that shit! Cost me COIN and braggin rights.

PSS Ya like cherry matahs? I might have some extra. Depends on the rain... I lost about 100 last big rain.
**********************************************************

Now, the above may not be quality BS of the calibre of some who grace Mum's Motherthread but it is, nonetheless, bullshit. Quantity is all I have to offer by times, mind. Yer welcome.

If you could be so kind, Rapparee -- which remains to be seen -- would you swing through North Decoder and get Dani a Dakota ring? She needs one for some of the local signals here.

Rapp, I said you deserved a medal, but I also chided you for poor behavior which, IMHO, deserved it. If you want all sunshine and medals, you're gonna have to work just a wee bit harder, but I just know in my heart you can make it if you try.

I yam sorry you won't be at the Getaway, though. I was gonna bring some plastique to put in your magic sawbox thingy.

No. I was going, but was rather forcibly reminded that Getaway is the same weekend as our 40th Wedding Anniversary (the bruises are fading nicely and the breaks will heal in time). I even had a couple of group things all ready to go, but alas! it was not to be. One was with the Amazing Amos (songs around magicians and as a finale I was going to saw him in two as he sang and played his guitar) and another with the charming Charmion.

Well, next year. I'll just have to go back to Idaho the end of the week.

Why, Amos! And here i am in Mount Pleasant South Carolina you're saying hard things about be. I don't say hard, mean things about you. If you are in Mount Pleasant you should be pleasant, and I can only say that it was very nice of you to let poor gnu look at your guitar from a distance however far away it was. Did you make him use a telescope? Did he have to wear acid-free cotton gloves and a mask when he touched it? I'm just curious.

He'd NEVER buy a bike. Unless he could get a bullet proof case for that lovely geetar. I approached it and looked at it closely, from a short distance, and then asked if i could touch it. One should never touch another man's instrument without permission. He said, "Sure. Play it if ya want to." I said, "Oh! I wish I could still do that." I checked the action from first fret to last on the biggest and littlest strings by gently poking them every few frets without taking the geetar from it's recline against my living room curtain. Perfection. I looked at A and said, "Nice, man." He replied, "I like it." I smiled, knowing that he would soon again make that action react. He did. Magical evening it was.

I have often thought that I wish I had somehow "videotaped" every kitchen session I ever had whether they me eves of music or just banter so that I could share them with all and sundry. If I had, A and G's visit would be among the top favs. A lot of laughs, good tunes and enlightening conversation. Maybe I shoud try to keep this dump cleaned up so I could accept more visitors... even ladies of the female persuasion. Hmmm... that would require a LOT more housework. I mean, Gabe went barefoot where a lady would not dare to tread!

Y'all are too kind, except Rapparee, who is not quite kind enough with his derivative simulating.

I am sorry to report that I am flying home, else I would be in Fort Worth shortly after the Getaway. I have turned in my little red rental car and hanging out at Dani's this week. Today I am helping organize the basement. There's a guy down the road selling a Harley Wide Glide from 1981 for 8 grand, but it sounds like the sound track to a bad motorcycle gang film. Hillsboro, Nawth Carolina is a grand rown full of angelic sprites like Dani and Janie. Last night she invited a couple of score friends over and we raised the roof some to good effect. Janie's sister Annie even came and played the fiddle, which was a special treat. Mighty good times, mighty good. The Hran is here, next to Dani's banjo, but so far she has stuck to playing the fridge, the range and the skillet. All of which she does exceeding well, I must add.

Rapparee deserves a medal for hauling Mom up from the basement, but then karma is always difficult to figger.

Mum and I are watching NFL on Fox Sunday and they are about to do a piece on the best QB in a high powered offense so we still have time to bet against that team. I am trying to convince her to go havsies on a two dollar bet. I still have $2.89 in my account but she won't cough up the coin so it comes down to trusting her to pay up tomorrow. I asked her to sign an affidavit so she can't blame the beer if she "forgets". When someone won't sign and date their words... I must see how beer are in her cooler.

Mum picked the Chiefs and I am sure she cheered all six sacks on Vick as much as I did. She's goin Pats, Skins, Broncos and, just for olddude, her upset pick is Steelers at home but she ain't got no coin on that one (pretty sure Dan don't neether).

Approaches now the Next of Kay.
Time and the world march on; duress
Forces the birth of New BS
And every voice partakes the line
That leadeth the Kays to Forty-Nine!
Now all our art and skill and tricks
Reduce the gap of posts to six
And ere the day or week are through,
The Forty-Ninth Kay will come through.
Than shall our labors doubled be
As raising our eyes aloft, we see
Like a glimmering star of hope divine
The Fiftieth follows Forty-Nine!

The long and endlessly faskinatin' voyage approaches its southern terminus; I have been in Nawth Carolina, the GRand Northern State, for a number of days now (don't ask which number as I have lost count in my meandering mind). I stayed a day with Bill and Rita in Maryland and then drove seven long hours to arrive at Sir Beaubear's most amazing estate tucked back in the wooded farmlands of Wingate, North Carolina, a short distance from the border with South Carolina. My stay with Bobert and Peavine was indescribably delicious. We hoisted and hauled thirty bales of hay from the neighbor's horse farm and stacked them in Bobert's barn. We went to the amazing reborn city of Charlotte and dined on pulled pork and beef brisket. We swapped songs in Bobert's secret lair, where all the mind-blowing stories are born, and dug out mud from the creek where fallen trees had choked the flow. We talked to Famous and Ghost (horses) and discussed affairs with a black cat named Kendall. Bobert and Peavine demonstrated their fencing techniques, a masterful demonstration of marital harmony and counter-point refined to a scintillating edge. We laughed a great deal. Peavine sang for us, and showed me her array of plantings, a subject of which she is an Ascended Master. With great regret, I left their sweet plantation.

I have come now, after several hours of driving, back to Hillsboro, the sweet spot of North Carolina, where I have settled down at Dani's lovely cottage in the trees, and peace reigneth upon the land. Herself is off to work, and a light rain has ended the most recent drought here, and the trees are wet and green, the spider webs sparkle like jewels, and all is well with the world. Aside from an occasional burst of public radio I have been exposed to almost no news or chatter from the media for some time, and I am finding it is quite salubrious to my mental state.

Writing from the POV of someone not oneself is fraught with ambiguities. I have a dear female friend - and known to most of you - who has written songs in the name of someone else- and an acquaintance said to her, I didn't realize you have a daughter.

Notwithstanding that the song mentions 'Daddy'.

Incidentally, the acquaintance is a psychologist. :)

I watched the brilliant red orb of the Sun sink behind the Missouri foothills and bathe the Mississippi with its glow. I saw the mountains of Utah merge into those which surround Denver, and those flatten into the plains of Kansas and Missouri. I dared to drive across the Wide Missouri River in a rainstorm so fierce that it was as if a fire hose was playing full force against me. And now, at peace, I can at last watch the lights of the bridges spanning the Father of Waters glitter on the wavetops below.

Have ANY of you done this? Tried to write just a simple protest song/prose/poetry for someone else? I have written a lot of stuff that is in the vault but all of it is just "for me".

Seriously, have you tried to write something to express the views and concerns of others? I still find my product lacking because I didn't address all of their issues. NObody wants a song that long. >;-)

Dear Family and Friends of The Mother of all BS threads,

We are approaching a change from one "thousand" to another. The next change after that will be from one "ten thousand" to another -- in this case, 50,000 posts.

This is a record unexceeded anywhere, not just in the Mudcat Cafe but on the entire World Wide Web. It behooves us, as this remarkable event approaches, to remove our headgear and pledge the following:

I (state your name, not this parenthetical statement) do commit myself to posting the best BS of which I am capable. I shall use correct spelling and grammar whenever possible and appropriate, and shall endeavor to make all of my endeavors reach the unparalleled heights envisioned so long ago by King Khandu, our founder and inspiration. I swear this by the gods my people swear by or if I'm an atheist I'll just do my best. SO MOTE IT BE!!

Thank you for participating in this. The firing squad will now load ten rounds ball ammunition and will ensure that you keep your promise. Bugler, sound the Charge or something!

Being AMos is not a simple breezy task to be undertaken by the part-time scholar or the dilettante in search of a mere frisson. It is a full-time job, and requires the most complete attention and concentration.

Rapparree, for example, could never do it. And don't think, secretly, that he hasn't tried! I feel his envious efforts seeping through the psychic gloom like the exhalations of some over-grown treefrog aspiring to the status of a turtledove.

Yes, it does seem that way. ;-) Although I haven't been divorced, technically speaking, never having married, but I HAVE experienced the same thing after breaking up with incompatible girlfriends. However, I think it's more like recovering one's original self than being reborn as a different being...though it could work either way, I guess.

gnu also said: "It's like reincarnation but without the death part. That part sucks."

Well...wait a minute. How do you know????? For all you know, death might turn out to be way better than anyone here can possibly grasp prior to experiencing it! I'm optimistic about that, and I have my reasons, but they must remain unspoken at this time. True, death is hard on the physical body...but if the dead body is analogous to a cast off suit of old clothing, that hardly matters, does it?
