THOSE stairs are okay. It's the ones in his basement that are more of a problem. But not as much of a problem as the tree roots. Did you know he keeps The World Tree down there?

I hope you navigated those stairs okay. And I don't want to read in the paper "he went to bed and he bumped his head and he couldn't get up in the morning."

Okay, you people can sit in your complacent homes and eat your complacent cheese, but you'll be happy to know that I've alerted the Idaho Legion to the Tongan Threat. Even as I type this they are readying themselves for the coming defense of the Homeland. Rifles are being distributed, knives are being whetted on the soles of boots, and horses are being saddled.

(Well, rifles WOULD be distributed if anyone could find the keys to that Arms Room, which most think that Pied Peter has with him, where ever he is. Somebody said that they think he was on a freight heading North or maybe East, so messages have been sent to Boise, Portland, Salt Lake City and Phoenix to be on the alert for him and to tell him that we need the keys to both the Arms Room and the Latrine.)

Wrong! NASA and the ESA both say it's Tonga! And the CIA's report on the Tonganese military might is, shall we say?, sparse. Oh yes, Tonga is a threat to the world! For instant, this satellite photo, which shows the largest atomic cannon in the world (built in 1952) and which is currently housed near Junction City, Kansas (at the end of the zig-zag road in the center of the photo), is being readied for transfer to the Tonganese military! Courtesy, of course, of the Tongan-loving Bush Administration.

I hope that the new Congress stops Tonga before their plans become a reality!

That shot is neither of Tonga nor of ganymede, clearly, so I fail to see its use to you as a rhetrical aid. Looks more like an impediment to your case, if you ask me.

You mean 'Interogative Shoals' - an offshoot of the Great Barrier reef?

Lots of good snorkeling there - as long as you avoid floating pumice.

The Tongans out on Ganymede
Have means of travel, various;
(That's how they get to Ganymede
To pursue their ends nefarious!)
But though Rapaire sounds the alarm
And sets the bells a-gongin'
He cannot show a single soul
(On Ganymede) who's Tongan.

If there are oil reserves on a volcanic island I would be astonished. There is a possibility of rare earths and radioactives, of course. Most effective WMD though, would probably be a fire/magma diety with a bad temper.

ALERT!! WARNING!! ALERT!!

Tonga has apparently created a new island in its attempt to take over the world! A yacht and a fishing vessel have both seen the new island, which has four peaks and is about a mile in diameter. Neither the Tonganese government nor the Tonganese defense forces have either confirmed or denied the existence of this new island, proof positive that not only does it exist but that it is being used by Tonga for their nefarious purposes.

The UN must act now, before it's too late and the US does!

There is no word yet about oil reserves or weapons of mass destruction.

I heard that when I woke this morning--breakfast was a very happy meal here! And of course I didn't mean to get metaphysical about Bush and Rumsfeld in my last post. He may indeed pass harmlessly through the bus if his particles are less dense, but I meant that Bush THREW him in front of the bus, causing a messy impact for a major distraction. Just in case our philosophers thought different.

Well, in truth the approbation out here in Idaho is "Beer! Beer!" This is especially heard at various gatherings, such as those at the Legion Hovel or at Dirty Dick's Dark Dingy Diggin's (a local bar of ill repute).

Perhaps this is the place to mention the celebration last night at DD'sDDD. It was over the election, of course, specifically over the breakdown of the county's optical scanning equipment. They're not much for technology over at DD'sDDD, other than a bottle opener or a corkscrew or a bung starter.

If we were to be genteel, good Rapaire, we would cry, "Hear! Hear!", a widely-accepted form of approbation, rather than "Here! Here!" more commonly heard as reproof. But as we are not, I suppose we can say "There! There!" in consolation.

I gave a little test on the back fence this morning. I think bouncing rocks near strays is probably sufficient. I do agree-these things can kill, so they need to be used carefully. But I don't want to be seen out in the street holding a pistol-shaped object shooting at dogs--just what I need, to be called in for discharging a weapon or shooting dogs. Hell, my dogs were both strays at one time. I just want them to leave us alone. I suspect that just having something in my pocket will be enough to change our body language and convince strays to back off. But last week I was followed home three times by a stray that was big enough to cause real problems. I'd like to just lob a couple of rocks his direction and let him know that I mean business. I want my dogs socialized with other dogs, but when they're on leashes and a stray isn't it can be a difficult situation.

The slingshot has some pellets in the handle, so I'll try some of those. They're there as backup if I run out of rocks. :)

Fire it in the backyard first, at cardboard, so you get the feel of the thing. Also rocks are less accurate than ball bearings because of their non-aerodynamic shape. If you bought a wrist-rocket and not the traditional Y-shaped one you should be aware that it can kill small game (so can the other, of course).

If you're seriously attacked by a large dog (small ones can be punted away) I suggest something like this. It will help keep noise down in the neighborhood.

But it could dribble in my pocket. The sling shot won't "leak rocks" in any significant way. (I'm planning to use native material, not those little metal shot pellets. I don't expect I'll be pulling the thing hard enough to do much damage, so the larger projectile is going to compensate in the surprise department.

She could use it for target practice. Or I could. I stopped by the local sporting goods store this evening and bought myself a slingshot. I'll practice a little against the fence in the back yard before I'm street ready. I am really tired of being rushed by dogs (there's one across the creek I won't mind nailing) and pestered by strays when I'm walking my dogs on their leashes. I figure pop a dog on the butt and it'll take off and leave us alone. I have no desire to injure the critters, just send them on their way.
