Well, I have spent another day doing absolutely nothing of consequence - turning into a pattern. Perhaps if I smoked some of that salmon it might fire my imagination if nothing else? Maybe I'll ask MOM if she and I might spend New Year's Eve at the Legion Hall.

In the meantime, this Spanish Red will have to do.

Knowing those Legionaires as you do, brother Rap, would you recommend we carry small silver daggers in our garters?

Well, darn. Trying to order alder chips online. The ACE hardware folks gouge on their shipping charges. I compared prices and though I had two screens open the damned thing changed even though I sent through the form with the correct number. Arrggggh. How can I smoke my salmon (soon) without good alder chips? I cancelled (I hope) the order and will place it again later. It costs me 80 cents more for shipping to buy three bags of chips as it does to buy one bag of chips. MOM would be steamed about this if she'd placed the order. Just as well she didn't--she's hard on monitors when she's pissed off.

Chilin's or Chil'en or something like that. But "chitlins," isn't that fried intestines (minus a few letters that aren't pronounced?)

Hi Mom! You know everything, so I'll ask you....

The call letters of US radio and TV stations begin with a "K" if the station is west of the Mississippi River, or with a "W" if it's to the east, right? So, do wou think there's a station somewhere with the call letters "WTF"?

Rapaire is already thinking of anatomically correct snowMEN positioned over holes, with anatomically correct snowWOMEN placing the flag in...well, nevermind.

Oh, oh! I just thought of something!

I'll freeze some yellow colored water in a narrow arc, walk over to the third green (approaching it from a different direction than directly from my house!) and place the frozen arc appropriately over the hole. I think I'll take some unfrozen yellow water with me and sprinkle it around a bit. Footprints to the arc, footprints away from it...boy, was it cold out!

What a wonderland of opportunity. Those little flags sticking through their bleeding backsides. Fingers stuck in holes. Snowmen enjoying ball-washing machines. Wow...

Kick back and enjoy view of the golf course. If it snows enough will you go build snowmen out there? Place them conspicuously over the hole in the middle of the green, or very close by. Build anatomically correct snowmen and let them appear to pee into the holes. Think of all of the possibilities!

Good evening, everyone. I have returned to my little old sod shanty in Pacific Northwest, surrounded by acres of claims. And the snow lays as a quilt upon mountains, a whitework piece that only Nature (or Mom) can create.

I am so very glad to be back, and to see that Amos and MMario and Stilly and Janie and everyone has been taking such good care of Mom. I did my best, but that George and Laura! fight fight fight all the time. If it's not over Condi it's over the girls' desire to help their friend Paris with her project about drunken Indian elephants and George saying in all seriousness "I didn't KNOW the Apaches had got into Eli's pants" and, well, the chaos was unbelievable.

Phooey on them, I say. Fie upon them. It's a dysfunctional family and I can't do a thing to help them if they don't cooperate.

I got enough trouble with the Legion.

Grrrr. . . I'm in a fowl mood.

I can't believe the number of trips and calls I've had to make in order to get this video card for my son's computer. We shopped and decided last week (two trips for that decision), and we ordered online to save some money. The company sent it out super fast (we paid for overnight, ordered on Friday and it was in the next town over on Saturday morning according to the tracking info. And still there until Monday morning, when it vanished from their facility.) A claim has been filed and we said "fuck it" and went and bought part of the gift at the store. The sale part is ordered online. Geez, Louise. Never use DHL as your shipper if you want to get what you ordered. I have never voluntarily used them, but every time it has been necessary, they have NEVER gotten the goods to me when they said. Or intact. Ever. How do they stay in business?

Okay, back to your turkey leftovers. I'm done grousing.

Put on your overcoat and a warm hat and gloves and take some kind of strong warm bag and go poke around those dark spaces where a cat might crawl and die by itself. Better if they're in the house with people, perhaps. I have an elderly cat myself, who's coming up on the age of my last very old cat who died of liver failure. He's healthy, but my kids have known this cat almost all their lives, so when he goes, it will be something that hits everyone hard. Good wishes to your b-i-l and others in the household who cherish kitties.

hey! I made an enteire jello pit of poached Nile Crocodile! What more do you want?

Sorry - bit grouchy and on edge -

we have one cat at the vet's with renal failure - not expected to live the day

The second (his brother) has pnuemonia but went out early this am and hasn't returned (about 3 hours when I left for work); thus overdue for medication and awol. Plus - it's probably been 2 months since he's stayed out longer then 20 minutes or so.

and the third hasn't been seen since yesterday morning at about 11 am. He's also sneezing and getting sick.

Meanwhile - I'm worried (hey - you don't live with a pet for 18 years without worrying when they get sick) ; but my b-i-l is *really* upset. and that bothers me because *his* health ain't the greatest. Sister in Japan with niece.

It's leftovers and re-runs for us tonight, the last of our Xmas celebration. TOmorrow early Barky and Co., head Nawth again, bound for LA and San Jose, to wqhich they know the way, tumtumtumteetumtytumtytum, and we head to the offices for a couple of days. Then the New Year week looms and we head for LA and thence up to Mudlark's in the central Coast region, where the vinyards groan with their burdens and the wine flows all year around.

One of the nicver things I got for Christmas was a final stainless-steel-cased compass from the Dalvey company in the Scottish Highlands. The instruction manual goes to the trouble of pointing out, however, that it is not suitable for use in the Southern hemisphere. So my wife wanted to know what they use in the Southern hemisphere, and I told her they used a Tates.

"What's a Tates?", she said, all innocent, like.

"It's a special compass for use in the southern hemisphere," I explained. "You don't see them up here, where they don't work. Up here, he who has a Tates is lost...".

There was a moment's thundering silence, while three female brains clicked and whirred, and then I was overwhelmed by flying Christmas wrappings, some of them still containing hard objects.

We've had a lot of comings and goings since the weekend. This morning we opened gifts and then before Moonglow and her boyfriend headed out to the boyfriend's family events, the four of us stood in the kitchen and tested sliced bites of 8 different little "game" sausages my sister sent. Pheasant, duck, elk, bison, antelope, venison, boar, and caribou. Moonglow tried to lay claim to them to take them to her home in the north, but we all wanted to try them. So they're tested and now they're in little snack bags and a cooler headed out to other households for the novelty taste test.

It's a beautiful day, and I don't think we're going to try to do a fancy dinner. We're too dinnered-out after the big blowout on Saturday and the hot turkey sandwiches we had late at night on the 23rd. A good walk with the dogs, maybe a movie this evening. Right now my son is in watching some of his new Simpsons episodes (years 9 and 10). This could take a while.

Now twenty-one two-fifty
Of posts have come and gone
And vanished in the winter air
Of a crisp, bright Christmas morn.
Today, there's peace in Bethlehem,
Where folks stroll with aplomb,
And this is due to the rising light
Of our ever-conscious Mom.

Yes there's nothing like BS for the holiday
When winter's bitter ruth
Gives way to something warmer,
And closer to the Truth.
There's nothing like BS for the Solstice night,
Knowing the spring doth come;
And with it, joy, and babies,
And, better still, more Mom!

No, just too rich a diet for my lean, keen eagle-bright mind. And no bragging rights to you, sirrah, who wanders off for days on end without so much as a postcard.

Barky and her room mate came down Friday. Yesterday they spent the whole morning in the kitchen, and we had a groaning board of turkey, hand-made mashed potatoes, broccoli and squash made into colorful delicious patterns, whole grain bread and fine red wine. Rich imported coffees and a home-made ambrosia dessert that melted on the tongue.

Then we did a wonderful gifting thing, which is our Chrisatmas Eve tradition. I got a hands-free phone unit for the car which I really liike, and we gort new flatware which we really needed.

And Mom got a cuddle blanket for comfort.

This morning we did stockings!! I got the Dangerous Book For Boys. Barky has a wicked good eye for a gift, eh?

When I woke up on Christmas,
Our Mom was half-way down,
And no-one offered her a post,
And no--one came around.
It seemed so cruel and thoughtless,
Leaving her hang that way,
Without a post to bring her joy,
On a crispy CHristmas Day.

And so I wrote this little poem
To help Mom towards the top,
To get her kids to rally round
Or a stranger, or a cop,
Or just some starving pregnany girl,
With no place else to stay,
Might come give birth on MOAB's floor,
On this crispy Christmas Day.

And then I saw, upon her hearth,
Six boxes bright and gay,
Wrapped up ii silver, red and green,
With little cards to say,
"We love you Mom, you're in our hearts,
Even when far away!'
And I knew someone had brought them by,
That crispy Christmas Day.

(Sorry....I just can't finish this right now...umpffff...brrfff... Some other time ,may be...)

"Los Angeles is on track to end the year with fewer than 400 homicides for the first time in nearly four decades -- a hopeful milestone for a city so long associated with gangs, drive-by shootings and sometimes random violence.

With 386 killings recorded as of this morning, the city has experienced one-third the number of homicides it did in 1992. The last year with a comparably low figure was 1970, when Los Angeles had a million fewer residents, guns were far less prevalent and street gangs were a much smaller part of life in urban neighborhoods."


Note the crime rate in Los Angeles has plummeted directly as the post count in MOAB has constantly risen higher.

Coincidence? I don't think so!!

On Christmas Joy her careworn glances rest,
And in the Saturnalia hour of light,
Rejoices at the coming End of Night!
When sure upon the Earth there rises Dawn,
The Spring of Springs, the growing light comes on,
And every heart new warming does proclaim.
And every mind in search of self-styld fame,
Doth from its Winter's weary labours rest,
And sallies out to welcome New BS!
Marry then fellows of the BS Hall,
Come Stilly, Rustic, Tweed, come one, come all,
And bring forth like Spring blossoms from the West,
The warming gentle winds of fresh BS,
And thus dispel the shadopws of the East,
And on our Mother's life, bring ye New Lease.
So here's a glass of brightest BS cheer,
A merry BS Xmas, and BS New Year!!
