I'm goin' off to Heaven in my trusty Winnebago
An' I'm takin' seven geetars, two banjoes, an' a Dobro
My rifle an' my shotgun an' a dozen fishin' poles
If I can't take my shit with me, I ain't a gonna go.

And I am not particularly splenetic, choleric, cranky, cross, excitable, hot-tempered,   impulsive, inflammable, irascible, irritable, passionate, peppery, petulant, quarrelsome, over-sensitive, short-tempered, shrewish, temperamental, testy, or waspish

The beauty, Amos, of being a librarian is that you leave behind you work that survives for a century or more, sometimes much, much more. You touch lives that touch other lives.

The ripples I have the most delight in leaving behind are the ones which reflect the generations before me to the ones after me. These are captured in the moments when a song suddenly blooms in your brain like a hologram leaping out of its own time and into yours. It's a reason for singing--to refresh the species-song, and the race-memories, which remind us of who we are (as we have always been) regardless of the flux of circumstance, population, technology and which corner of the pool we happen to be swimming in.

I was confronted with my mortality on about April 14, 1968. I went out and bought a Buck "General" as a result.

I've noticed, Maggie. It gives one pause.   

Some of us are old, and most of us are not spring chickens. We are confronted with the mortality of our corporeal presence, on the one hand, and blessed with the reminder of how we are immortal, though perhaps forgotten as individuals in a generation or two.   As we recognize how others live on in our memories and in their individual and cultural influences, and the music of common folk is preserved and evolves, and always valued in some manner or another, so we understand that even as we pass out of memory of the generations that follow, our influence, for good or ill, will continue.

No rapture rupture, just a burst bubble.

I'm going to say this quietly over here, not start a thread, but have you noticed a LOT of mudcatters and potential/honorary (i.e., Mike Seeger) mudcatters are passing away this summer? I'd be willing to be they're not doing it to hold a place in line for that Winnebago ride. Sad business.

Can the Rapture cause injury? A rupture, perhaps? A Rapture rupture?

I raptured a hornet that appeared from out of nowhere Sunday night, whizzed around my head a few times, and then headed for the light over the sink.

What with the toad and the hornet, Sunday was critter day.

No snakes from the wilds of the Everglades, however.

According to Garrison Keller, a lot of fundamental and/or evangelical Christians are going to be really surprised when "that Great Day" arrives, and only the cars with Unitarian bumper stickers are suddenly left empty of people on the highway. The Unitarians will be pretty shocked as well. I think I quote fairly accurately ..."Raptured? The Unitarians? Unitarians don't want raptured. They want closure!"

However, I know I few that would reconsider their position if there was a nice, just-like-new Winnebago waiting for them, parked on a big, puffy cloud. Just think, one could astroplane in style and comfort!

Well, see, this here rapture thing is set for just before Aunty Christ arrives. Or maybe during Aunty's visit. Or maybe after. Ain't nobody quite sure exactly when it's gonna happen. But when it does it's gonna be some Serious Shit. Graves are gonna yawn and the dead will arise, those that are goin' on to glory. I don't know what happens to the rest. Just continue laying there, I guess. Best read I've read on it is "Job: A Comedy Of Justice" by Robert A. Heinlein.

Yeah, but us recalcitrant sinners like me and Amos won't be there to see it, will we? ;-D Seems like kind of a shame. I'd consider reformin' so as to share in the spoils after the Rapture comes down and the Shit hits the Big Fan, but that would mean givin' up booze, cigars, fast women, and questionably gratuitous acts of violence. It would also mean forgivin' all my enemies and turnin' the other cheek to them. It would mean givin' the other guy my vest, coat, hat, and shoes when he asks me fer my shirt.

No fun at all, in other words.

So I guess we can just forget about that possibility, right?

But when is this Rapture thing s'posed to happen? I would maybe consider reformin' and gettin' "saved" in the last 24 hours just before the big hammer comes down, so as to cash in on the jackpot without givin' up too much fun in the interim...

I have never been inside it, but it is well along in years and I fear it might suffer from mildew or other symptoms of mortality. Come the Rapture, of course, all that will be swept away and a bright new spiritual Winnebago revealed in its stead, the hidden true soul of the thing.

Amos, you should offer to give his vehicle an occasional test drive, just as a neighborly service. Take it for a couple of days workout at a time, to be sure you've given it a good checkout. It's the least you can do.

Into darkness then did descend the spirit of God,
Upon the watery chaos, whereon he made his abode.
Which darkness then was on the face of the deep,
In which rested the Chaos, and in it all things asleep.

Rude, unformed, without shape, form or any good,
Out of which God created all things as it stood.
But first he commanded a light to appear,
That all might be seen, that before was hid.

And God saw that the light was good and clear,
And the darkness and light he did then divide,
Calling the one day, and the other night,
For darkness [to] obscure (and day for shining bright).

And a firmament then God did let make,
To sever the waters above from those below;
And divided the Earth from the waters also,
Wherein greatly his power he did show.

Then out of this Chaos, the four elements were made:
Heat and cold, moist and dry, in like wise,
Which are the beginning of all creatures wide,
That under the globe of Luna do abide.

The quintessence (that some men it call)
Was taken out of the Chaos before the four elements all:
Which is the first being, as we may descry,
And uncorruptible, whereof was made the sky,
And celestial bodies all, which do never die.

By the Alchemist, Simon Forman (1552-1611)

Dang, I yam jealous of Kendall.

But it is alright. There will be more parties.

If the world does not end first.

I have just learned that my very unusual elderly neighbor, who drives off to church twice a day and rarely otherwise comes out, has a secret reason for the large RV he keeps in his driveway. He is too weak to do anything recreational with it, but he keeps it and maintains it in ready condition. Turns out he figures it should be kept ready for the Rapture. I never heard of anyone wanting to be Raptured in an RV before, but I guess creature comforts might be useful on a long trip like that. I can't imagine how he thinks the voyage will end, though...

I swear I am not making this up.

Aww, MOM, I am absolutely replete with good food and good company. Dani, Elena, Holly, Kendall and a friend of mine from work, Greg, just left.

If I do say so myself, the meal I fixed was on par with the fine company. We drank a champagne toast to the nomination of the Utah Phillips tribute CD for a Grammy, yakked our heads off, filled our bellies with good food and good wine, and our hearts and minds with good conversation and good company.

Kendall appreciates Maine much more, having come to NC for the first real southern heat spell we have had this year. (He arrived with a lush beard, which is now gone after a day or so in this heat. Hope Jacqui forgives him.)

This site works a starting phrase from English into Japanese and then back to English until it arrives at "equilibrium" where both translations are the same (that is, until the English comes out the same way twice in a row).

A fine example:

He kept three firefighters off their lunchbreak today while he grilled them about how their pumper truck worked. He's curious and affectionate. A real joy to be with.
