I really should be doing some conversion to ABC for the shanty thread - but that would require a functional brain cell.

y'knmow - it used to be you could hit "back" after posting and then post again, and again by hitting submit.

But it looks like you can't any longer be a multiple submissive - even if you change the message in the submit box it doesn't take the message!

drat!

I just noticed something. I'm off away to England on Thursday for a week, and at the current rate of posts, will therefore miss the big moment. I will feel very guilty if we suffer a raid by Flamenco Ted, or other such indignities....

Looks like a slow-moving torando came through here.

Last night my son's bed lost the support bar the runs under the middle of it. We hefted the mattress off, shifted the box spring, got out the broom, and swept up one of the missing nuts. The other was on top of his dresser where I put it when I found it weeks ago, not knowing what it went to but figuring I'd leave it in the proximity for later discovery.

Dust kittens galore, and when we moved the frame, a few got flattened. We had a nice momentary chuckle at his reaction to my comment about a "flattened kitten." He had an image of one of our cats biting the dust (so to speak) back there, and then found this pancake of dust.

Do you have any of those at your house Amos? Kind of makes you wonder what your electronics are finding to breathe, doesn't it? Mom has a point about cleaning up your room.

At least we know there aren't any Freds or Ralphs under his bed.

In our peregrinations we encountered a huge furniture store conducting a final going out of business sale; so we bought a pair of matching drawer-things for the bedroom. I will finally have a separate drawer for my socks. Today the flooring goes in, and the baseboards. Then, the furniture goes back, and the books get sorted -- by SUBJECT this time, not by size or color... and the chaos gets returned to its normal dimensions (normal dementia is more like it).

Meanwhile, out in the back yard, the liner is in and the pump inlet has been secured, the stone wall has been adjusted according to new inspirations (ouch) and this week the outlet will be finished and the end of the wall put together to make a pleasing jet into the cascade.
Then we get to test the bloody thing. Funny how when you don't know what you're doing, you have to make it up as you go along and every step takes two extra ones to get it right...

:D

Good morning mother
Our mother Dear
We're all so happy
To see you here.
Our faces washed,
Our hands are too,
Good morning Mother,
Dear, to you....

I bet Amos will find a lot of things he thought he lost that were buried in the 10-years' stack.

I found a wonderful sturdy pine bookshelf yesterday, one of those big rustic Mexican pieces that are becoming so popular with their distinct southwestern look. Found it at an area hardware store. It is strong enough to hold my LP collection--now that is strong! I moved albums out of boxes on the floor into this beautiful cabinet, and now if I can just figure out how to arrange all of the components of my audio and video system (9 pieces--VCR,DVD, Receiver, Dual cassette deck, Phonograph, RF filter, Dish Network box, rewinder, extra small cassette player for rewinding). And the TV. I've been doing the math for a while now, trying to keep those things in sight of their various remote controls but up away from the cat hair or the wagging dog tails. Everything is on a large (and unattractive) sturdy wire rack. Back to my pondering.

Somewhere in this broad land, protest is raising its angry head; some people are protesting one thing, some another. Wherever in this gentle land human life has been encroached upoin, toes stepped on, wrong characterizations offered, injustices promoted, crimes disguised, there you will find the clarion voice of Protest. For example, a friend of mine is protesting a traffic sign that was erected right in front of her front door by the road, without any consultation or agreement on her part. Someone else is protesting the nomination of Judge Alito. It doesn't matter whether the issue is large or small. Often, it doesn't matter whether the issue is even real, or wholly imaginary. Protest -- like justice -- is often blind.

An interesting study could be made in the ways people handle the feeling of protest; often they just stop their gobs and suck it up. Other times they make small suggestions. Sometimes they march, yell, wave banners or scream. Occasionally they (gasp) do something.

The other night my friend wanted to know how to renew the blade in a hacksaw. I wonder what her outlet of protest could be.

I may be offline sporadically this weekend -- my computer has been temporarily moved to the dining room with a long jury-rigged extension to the Ethernet running over the floor. After ten years of developing carefully nurtured stacks in every quarter, I have had to empty my office literally to the floorboards. Reason is we get new floor put into tit Monday. Meanwhile every stick of library and desks and stuff is stacked up in the garage.

Happy Saturday, Mom!! I saw your name today on a map of ancient Palestine. Right next to Edom.

If buttercups buzz'd after the bee,
If boats were on land, churches on sea,
If ponies rode men and if grass ate the cows,
And cats should be chased into holes by the mouse,
If the mamas sold their babies
To the gypsies for half a crown;
If summer were spring and the other way round,
Then all the world would be upside down.

And you mistake my interest. It isn't my goal to bag that number, it is my goal to discourage poaching by the likes of Flamingo Ted and daylia, of late, who only came by to bag a number.

So they took her aboard in a jiffy
And the shark stood at attention the while,
Then he raised on his flipper
And ate up the skipper
And went on his way with a smile.

And this shows that the prince of the ocean,
To ladies forbearing and mild,
Though his record be dark,
Is the man-eating shark
Who will eat neither woman nor child

Then he proffered his fin and she took it-
While the passengers cheered
As the vessel they neared
And a broadside was fired in salute.

And they soon stood alongside the vessel,
When a life-saving dinghy was lowered
With the pick of the crew,
And her relatives too,
And the mate and the skipper aboard.

She struggled and flounced in the water
And signaled in vain for her bark,
And she'd surely been drowned
If she hadn't been found
By a chivalrous man-eating shark.

He bowed in a manner most polished.
Thus soothing her impulses wild:
"Don't be frightened," he said,
I've been properly bred
And I eat neither woman nor child."

And delicious to eat,
Fell into the bay with a scream.

CHIVALROUS SHARK

The most chivalrous fish of the ocean,
To ladies forbearing and mild,
Though his record be dark
Is the man-eating shark
Who will eat neither woman nor child.

He dines upon seamen and skippers,
And tourists his hunger assuage,
And a fresh cabin boy
Will inspire him with joy
If he's past the maturity age.

I didn't call him a ralph, because he didn't say "Har!", but he wasn't a particularly pleasant person. I quoted Dr. Seuss at him and I think that upset him ("And the big Kangaroo said 'me too!'") after a couple of people posted on the same topic. There was a guy who agreed with me, but his post was so odd that I wasn't sure who he was scolding, hence my quote. The first guy I think wasn't sure what to make of that part of it. :)

This may be an instance where you had to be there.

I seem to have picked a fight with a member of my gardening discussion list. (!) I made a simple remark that 'although I didn't support the man or his politics, I was interested to know if the Bush family had organic or other environmental operations going at the ranch in Crawford.' Several of us discussed what we knew about the design and organics, then a guy came in, not to say anything about organics, but to highlight my position on Bush and say he hoped we weren't going to start down the road of making political remarks in this site blah blah blah. I told him politics is part of life and I had restrained myself admirably. He sent a private message telling me he spent good money to join the site for the organic information and didn't want to see the politics. I wrote back and told him he only complained because he supported Bush, otherwise he wouldn't care. I called him petty to interrupt a perfectly good conversation to say his piece. (I could have accused him of being MG or Beardedbruce or one of our other arguers, but then I'd have had to explain myself. . . well anyway, I see that I have another private message from him.

What are the odds that he's going to say "Actually, I oppose Bush, but I don't want to start a landslide of Bush-bashing threads here at our gardening site and forgive me for making a fuss."

Yeah. I should open it and post his remarks here.

As any Bush gangster knows, truth in such an attack has nothing to do with anything; there is no defense if one IS as labeled, and if one is NOT as labeled, one is likely to be so labeled anyway, especially if the accuser repeats himself often and loudly.
