Yeah, I know the feeling. We have Big Lots stores around here and they had the large boxes of Kleenex on a really good sale last week. I picked up about 10 boxes and distributed them around the house where all of our old boxes had been depleted.

So, the weekend is here, the weather is good, I'm feeling better--time to stay in the house and do my income taxes. Whhhaaaaaa!

Two weeks ago we had 14 boxes of kleenex. This morning we had four.

Prednisone? Did you stuff poison ivy up your nose to try to deal with your sinus infection? Sounds like your household is a walking advertisement for three-ply Kleenex.

Who has a dirty mind?

March, the Month of Mud. And it's nearly over.

I'm on prednisone and Augmentin, myself. Pat's on Z-Cillin for the same thing. Coughing and infection. You have a dirty mind.

Hey, Mom, the doctor didn't get mad at me when I fessed up that I dosed myself with a week's worth of amoxil. Said it was a good guess at getting the sinus infection. It just didn't get it all, so I have a stronger one for 10 days to nuke it.

I seem to have missed most of March. . .

That doesn't seem very fair. Has anyone tried negotiating with those sturgeons?

A Sparse Grey Quibble tied on a #32 barbless hook is the favored fly for catching the wily Portneuf River sturgeon. Naturally, it's catch-and-release if you manage to land one. If you hook one and don't manage to land it it's catch-and-eat from the sturgeon point of view.

I would personally prefer to see it as "in the pretense of thy religion" - but won't quibble.

Okay, I already did quibble, but you know what I mean.

OOOOH! Google is offering salmon for sale at the bottom! But I didn't log on for that, I logged on to share this:

The 23rd Qualm
(Written by a retired Methodist minister. )

Bush is my shepherd; I dwell in want.
He maketh logs to be cut down in national forests.
He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness.
He restoreth my fears.
He leadeth me in the paths of international disgrace
for his ego's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution and war,
I will find no exit, for thou art in office.
Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control, they discomfort me.
Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the presence of thy religion.
Thou anointest my head with foreign oil.
My health insurance runneth out.
Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall follow me
all the days of thy term,
And my jobless child shall dwell in my basement forever.

Oh, hell, Amos. That fish was caught and cooked years back!

Demne was the son of Cumhail mac Art, a warrior killed before his mother gave birth to him. Fearing for her son's safety at the hands of her husband's killers, she sent him away to be raised by a woman warrior and druidess. They taught him first to be a hunter. When he raced and caught wild deer and brought them back to the women who raised him they decided it was time for him to learn the skills of a warrior.

Not long afterward, Demne came upon a group of boys playing hurley. For several days running he beat them single-handedly, first a quarter of the boys, then half, and finally the entire group. The defeated boys complained about their shameful defeat to their chieftain and at the chieftain's suggestion plotted to kill Demne. They attempted an attack in the water but Demne not only saved his own life but also drowned several of them.

Unable to avoid pursuit by his father's enemies, Demne decided to become a poet. A poet's status in the Celtic society was so high that being a member of that profession would shield him from harm. He took up study with a poet named Finneces who lived near the River Boyne.

The River Boyne was home to a magical salmon that ate nuts from a hazel tree and was known as the Salmon of Knowledge. A druid had foretold that whoever ate first of the flesh of that magical salmon would have knowledge of all things. After many years of watching the salmon, Finneces finally caught it and told his apprentice Demne to cook the fish.

A hunter and warrior Demne might have been but those skills would not protect him from the burning his thumb while the salmon was cooking. He sucked his thumb to ease the pain, thereby tasting the salmon. Demne told Finneces what had happened and his mentor decreed that the young Demne was the one intended to eat the salmon and changed his name to "Finn". Henceforth known as Finn mac Cumhail, he received three gifts that would make him a great poet: magic, great insight, and the power of words.


There were several pieces of The Salmon left, however, and these were gathered up and fed to other salmon and in this way the powers of The Salmon has been passed on over the generations. These fish are kept in a special pool of the River Liffey (WAAAAAAAAAAAAY upstream from Dublin!) and when the time is right are smoked and sent to Library Schools around the world. Each graduate of each school, having been Deemed Worthy to graduate is given a piece of this smoked salmon to eat -- and what happens is so wonderful that everyone that tastes of it craves both the taste of The Salmon and what it brings.

That's why the traditional graduate degree for librarians is called an "MLS". We've camouflaged the real meaning by telling everyone it means "Master of Library Science" but it really means "More Liffey Salmon."

I've never told anyone this before, but here's The Truth. Don't, for goodness sakes, tell anyone I told you or I'll be drummed out of the Bibliotecal Bruderbund (Includes Women).

When Ghatma Buddha studied under Siva and Kali, he rejected Kali's teaching and thereby gained only half the knowledge he needed. Kali became angry at this rejection of her Wisdom, and was going to start The Dance but was dissuaded by Lao Tzu. Instead, Kali seduced Freya into sleeping with Math Mathonwy by offering Chango a piece of the Salmon of Knowledge.

Freya got preggers from the encounter and gave birth to triplets: Elesie, Odwy, and Udsie -- two girls and a boy. Given their parents and the gifts given to the three at their birth by Siva, Kali, Math Mathonwy, Lao Tzu, Chango, Lilith, Osiris, Isis, Pele, the Hiiakas, Ereshkigal, Inanna, Uzume, Amaterasu, Oya and the rest of the gang, the three kids were wise before their time. When they had grown they gathered to themselves women and men of surpassing intelligence, wit, charm, beauty, spin, up, down, and all the rest of the virtues. These people work to bring Order from the Chaos of Knowledge while preserving what Martin Buber, in his early work "Daniel" called "the whirlpool."

But ranged against these noble warriors of the mind are a group known only as "The Perfect Unwashed Ones" or TPUO (pronounced "Ptooey"). These do their awful best to thwart the followers of The Three by stealing books, censorship, mutilating books, keeping stuff overdue, and cutting library budgets.

Many times the followers of The Three have thought to make their work easier by having Kali do a little dance; just a few steps, nothing really major, but decided that ol' Kali might get carried away and forget to stop and then where would we be?

So Elsie, Dewey, and Udeesie (as the three are now known)made a plan a couple hundred years ago which will bring about the complete destruction of the TPUO and usher in a New Age where books will be arranged in neat rows on the shelves, nothing will be overdue, and babies will not puke on the pages.

The time for the New Age is almost upon us, and has nearly reached that ripeness from which the New Age will burst forth like pus from a nice, ripe, juicy, pimple.

If you don't want to be numbered among TPUO, get your library books back on time and pay your fines (if any). And you'd better do it very soon.

You do realize the Military will newver allow this, don't you? Most of the cost of a Bookmobile is in the shielding that prevents L-space from being detected by the users. Your trailer just isn't going to be large enough in the present dimension to allow that, and there is no way "they" will allow a mobile unshielded L-space carrier to be operated.

Hah! We are working on turning loose on the public streets a small trailer (5 ft. wide x 8 feet long x about 65 inches high) which will carry about 800 books in shelving along the outside walls. The walls will lift up to open the shelves for business; in the middle will be stored returned books, chairs, and stuff needed for the trailer. We'll tow it with the Library's 1996 Subaru stationwagon, which will tow up to 2,000 pounds. Something like this, which the Chicago Public Library ran in 1939.

The three local Rotary Clubs are working with us on this, and it's moving forward rather quickly.

Why? I hear you asking.

Because this trailer will cost about $3,200, as opposed to about $200,000 US for a bookmobile. Because almost anyone can drive the Subaru with the trailer, and I'd have to hire AT LEAST two drivers with Commercial Drivers' Licenses for a bookmobile. Because Bookmobiles get about seven (7) miles to the gallon if you're lucky, and we do have to buy gasoline. Because housing the trailer will be less of a problem than housing a bookmobile.

Yes, there a certain drawbacks. But everything has drawbacks. When this hits the streets we will be, as far as I know, the ONLY public library in the US doing this sort of thing.

As mud season approacheth and temperatures get warmer the wild life and semi-wild life in the area is beginning to become more evident. A pair of mallards has taken up residence on the farm pond - but they have yet to indulge in one of their wild orgies (a spring tradition with them) - good thing too - they can get pretty raucous!

The panther went outside last night for what is really the first time since fall turned to winter. He spent about an hour outside before running back in, nerves atwitter with the excitement of having been off the porch.

The orange barn cat turned elderly house cat was stalking four deer yesterday morning - they were very nervous about it and finally the four of them rushed him all at once in order to get past the corner of the house where he was crouched, slavering, dreaming of venison.

Rain and seven hours sleep.

I've managed to get the dogs to stop barking outside the back door until I feed them by short-circuiting the process. They don't get fed first thing any more, they get a 15-30 minute walk, then we come back home and they get fed. They bark if they know they'll get fed soon, but they don't bark in order to go for a walk.

Pretty smart, eh? (Until they think of some other annoying trick to turn into a habit, that is. . .)

However we do believe he *may* be related to Harvey (of stage and screen fame) but on the visible side of the family. Harvey of course, being a poookah, does fit your description.

Hmmm...this implies, of course that the OTHER side of your family is invisible or ethereal or trascendental. And since "side of the family" implies lineage through one or the other of two parents, you seem to be saying that your parents were one mortal, and one ethereal or invisible -- perhaps a holy ghost, or a visiting Olympian figure, or an alien from another dimension, or an aery sprite of some sort out to do mischief and spread seed among other realms?

I do have an old Black Panther who comes in every now and then. Nice guy.

Here's a nice thing for you:



Men, try to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive woman.

My name is Ron. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife, Julie.

When I took "early retirement" last year, it became necessary for Julie to get a full-time job, both for the extra income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she stated working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age.

I usually get home from the golf course about the same time she gets home from work Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home cooked grub when I hit that door.

She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner. I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.

Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think. For example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two or even three days. That way she won't have to rush so much.

I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I mean). I say this gently. I like to think tact is one of my strong points

When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only half finished mowing the yard. I try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me too.

I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support Julie. I'm not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help each other...

Ron


EDITOR'S NOTE: Ron died suddenly on March 26. He was found with a Calloway extra long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver II rammed up his backside.

Today it is apleasant 68 degrees F. outside, and cargo shorts are seen in the land on every buttock. I wear my Tivas to work. Life is good.

Yesterday we went to the zoo in the late afternoon and took pictures up close of a giant black jaguar, a fuzzy Koala, a number of strange critters of the Cat family, and a school chum who showe dup unexpectedly. We saw trained macaws and sea lions and all kinds of monkeys.

I did get the lawn mowed this weekend, though, and it didn't throw me into a feverish faint or anything like that. (It was essential--my tall grass last year was apparently an invitation to burglars to come on in 'cause no one was home. So it was aggravating to let the lawn get so tall again while I was recuperating. I didn't want to leave while it looked so untended for fear I come back from some errand and find things missing again.) Even Quark hanging around couldn't prevent that.
