You notice we have a nice little Two-Part Invention going here. Stilly and I meandering through the raspberry bushes and the boys going on about beheadings and biblical jive. Now if we just start talking about blood and guns and the guys go sit on the porch swing this will become a fugue.

If it ain't baroque, don't fix it.

Charles Henri Sanson, full title Chevalier Charles-Henri Sanson de Longval (February 15, 1739 - July 4, 1806) was the Royal Executioner of France in the court of King Louis XVI and High Executioner of the First French Republic. He administered capital punishment in the city of Paris for over forty years, and by his own hand executed nearly 3,000 people, including the King himself. Charles Henri Sanson was the fourth in a six-generation family dynasty of executioners. (Wikipedia)

I am so grateful to Wikipedia--without it I would never keep up with Rapaire's eclectic meanderings.

I just remembered that I wanted to mention that I did some beheadings this morning and, until I was stopped by rain, yesterday morning. I'm thinking of changing my handle to "Monsieur de Pocatello", like Sanson was known as "Monsieur de Paris". If you would like to help with the beheadings please let me know.

I have the other 93% here in Tejas to go with your 7% in Idaho, Eiseley. Wanna swap?

The porch swing and lemonade sound marvelous. Growing up in Western Washington we kids literally grazed in people's back yards. One old guy had put in an orchard when he and his wife were young, but after she was gone and he was elderly, we would creep through the brush and always head straight for the raspberries. Mmmmmmm!

I 'most fell outa mah saddle in shock when I saw that name, Amos. Ever since I got this here netbook I've taken to ridin' while usin' wireless ta communicate. I keep the hoss in mah backyard and ride him around the golf course in the evenings and around dawn. Nice hoss -- grulla gelding outa quarter horse stock. Nice ride with mah 16" Billy Cook Nebraska Rancher saddle, just sorta lopin' across the fairways, ropin' golf carts an' runnin' down runners.

Dear Stilly,
Come and take a virtual seat on my porch swing. The sprinklers are going and a fresh breeze is blowing from the northwest. It's probably about 80 degrees on this quiet breezy porch, and I have a whole pitcher full of icy cold raspberry lemonade. The raspberries were picked yesterday afternoon at the peak of freshness and the lemonade is just the right tartness. MOM's gone back in the house to take a nap, so we'll have the porch to ourselves. Did I mention humidity? It's about 7 percent right now, so it could be 20 degrees warmer and you still wouldn't feel sticky. I'll pour you a glass right now.

Eiseley

Why, surely 'tis, straight on!! Dang. And thanks to your impeccable dedication to correct sources, Mister R, I can now correct my corrupted excerpt from a battered memory over forty years of change and improve it from an authenticated transcript:

So The Nazz and his buddies was goofin' off down the boulevard one day and they run into a little cat wit' a bent frame. So The Nazz look at this little cat with the bent frame and he say "What's the matter wit' you, baby?" And the little cat with the bent frame, he say "Well, my frame is bent, Nazz- it's been bent from in front."

So The Nazz look at the little cat with the bent frame and he put the golden eyes of love on this here little kiddie and he looked right down into the windows of his soul and he say to the little cat, he say "Straighten!" The cat went up straighter'n an arrow and everyone jumpin' up and down and sayin' "Look what The Nazz put on that boy! You dug him before - dig him now!"

Amos, are you trying to turn this into a music thread?? You know Mom switches you for that! Of course, Bob Dylan reciting "Junior" Whitman does have a certain je ne sais quoi appeal to it. I think (Bob) Dylan doing Dylan (Thomas) might be interesting. Or maybe Dylan (Thomas) doing (Bob) Dylan. Difficult, I know, what with Dylan T. being dead and all, but I've heard that a good engineer can overcome all sorts of difficulties. If you overcome that, I'd also like to hear Shakespeare doing Shakespeare. Thanks!

Walt Whitman In Democratic Vistas, an 1871 prose work, writes,

I say we had best look our times and lands searchingly in the face, like a physician diagnosing some deep disease. Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States. Genuine belief seems to have left us. The underlying principles of the States are not honestly believed in (for all this glow, and these melodramatic screamings), nor is humanity itself believed in. What penetrating eye does not everywhere see through the mask? . . . . It is as if we were somehow being endowed with a vast and more and more thoroughly-appointed body, and then left with little or no soul.


Allen Ginsberg, asks, a century after the first publication of Leaves of Grass,

"America when will you be angelic?
When will you take off your clothes?
When will you look at yourself through the grave?"


The conversation is then taken up by the people who have brought you Levi's Blue Jeans since 1849, using Walt Whitman's voice from a cylindrical wax recording.

Me name's Rod Blagojevich, the ex-governor
I'm on trial though I did nothing wrong
I tried to get someone into the Senate
And now I am singing this song.

CH: With me ring-ring, and a clink-clink, and a dollar
With me ring-ring and a clink-clink and a tie-dee
Sum for a chair that is vacant
'Cause Obama had done moved away.

Our last guv was jailed for all but sheep stealin'
Me brother's a son of a bitch
Me wife's more profane than I am
And I just wanted bad to get rich.

CH.

So I put a Senate seat up for auction
And the FBI tapped all my phones
Suppose I'd appointed my own self --
You'd be deaf in Guam from the groans.

CH.

I'm not guilty of all that corruption
Nor guilty of anything else
A four hour work day just suits me
I've got mine, and yours, and who else?

CH.

So I flew home ever night to Chicago
At the Illinois voters' expense
It's not like I was stealing some money
But it made the unwashed very tense.

CH.

I'll be glad when this trouble is over
If I'm found guilty I'll be in a stew
'Cause they'll lock me up with George Ryan
In a neat little cell built for two.

CH.

It is hardly news, Amos, that rotenone is a piscicide. So are certain extracts which can be made from saponins, which include the maple tree. One can also use dried and powdered walnut or hickory nut hulls or simply stir up the mud of the Ol' Fishin' Hole sufficiently to deprive the fish of the necessary oxygen.

As for explosives, you seem to be far more familiar with them than I am, which I suppose says something about your character.

Not all at the same time! Why, all the shady spots would be taken! No shade, no fish(ing). Let those who will speed around on the water in high-powered boats pretending to fish -- I'll save my money for beer and/or soft drinks and/or worms. And if the boaters try to see how close they can come to my line, well, my late friend Steve dealt with that by sitting there with an (unloaded) 12 gauge across his knees. No sirree! you just give me a shady bank, a straw hat, a cane pole, a can of worms, a sandwich and a jug and I'm happy all day, just like my grandma was. Don't really need the cane pole, neither -- a stick cut from the bank will do fine. In fact, I don't need much of anything except some string to go fishing (it's easier than makin' my own).

Rotenone, by the way, is a natural substance extracted from the root of certain plants, which constricts blood vessels in a fish's gills and causes suffocation. Also used as an insecticide. One of the plants it can be derived from is the ordinary Jicama.

Tovex (also known as Trenchrite, Seismogel, and Seismopac) is a water gel explosive composed of ammonium nitrate and methylammonium nitrate that has several advantages over traditional dynamite.

I know Rapaire likes to use these little known terms to create an air of mystery and superior knowledge, like a cloud of small insects, about his person. I think, myself, that a due respect for the clarity of thought in others' minds, compels the clarification of such terms and that making them known, and dispelling the authoritarian mystique around them, is a more liberating approach.
