What, the citizens are leaping over the tourons? Stumbling over them? Climbing them?

I'm glad to see there will be a component for academic librarians. I have one in mind. . . she makes me work my tail off, but she's doing great work. I'd love to nominate her. Maybe I can make it a surprise!

The very idea of Mom taking me seriously is laughable, you doodoohead. And I dunno why you have to go making up stories to suck up to Mom, just because you forgot her birthday and I didn't. But that's okay. We're brothers under the MOAB Flag, so I will back you up if she asks. But I don't think she's gonna.

I got to sing and play for Sam Hinton Friday night!!

I selected it, Mom. I paid for it. I even helped Amos sign his name because he's not very good with penmanship yet. Amos put it in the mailbox, but I paid for the stamp and put it on.

The burial is over. The caisson and the horses were there, and we walked after the caisson and as far as I know nobody stepped in the road apples. The firing party fired, the band played, and the bugler played "Taps." Very nice. I thanked a captain afterwards and he said, "You're welcome, Sir" and I told him that I wasn't a "Sir", I worked for a living, and he smiled at that old NCO witticism. There is/will be a video.

All for now Mom, I'm tired. And don't take Amos too seriously, but you know that.

It is really strange having oles healing in your jawbone. But I believe in a few months it will be as good a snew and I will have two titanium-core teeth to grind my food with. This will make me feel lively and carnivorous. I look forward to that. At the moment I feel bruised but basically operational.

Thanks for being here, Mom. Rapaire said he says thanks, too. He saidf to tell you the Mother's Day card I sent you was really from both of us.

MOM, I know it's quiet with the boys away for a little while. I wish I'd been better company today, but I was finishing up web pages and announcements at work because the kids all come back to campus in a couple of weeks. You know how THAT is. . .

I wonder if Rap is going to be able to bring his loot back in the airplane, or if he'll have to FedEX his luggage home. (Peter Greenberg, the travel reporter on TV, says he does that all of the time, just to avoid the airline luggage threshers and light fingers).

I can well imagine you dropped that much at that museum. I've seen the New York City branch of it (in the Customs House at Bowling Green in lower Manhattan). They have some nice books and hand-crafted trinkets.

There could conceivably also have been some nice quilts at the museum. There are some famous quilt patterns favored by American Indian quilt makers. Star quilts, in particular, I seem to recall.

But alas and alack, I cannot deprive her of her sole and only connection to the quilting world (except for the two friends who are also here for the burial, and G Street Fabrics, and...).

Here's a tidbit for those who want to do a little trolling through the databases while acrueing BS:

from The Chronicle of Higher Education,
August 10, 2006

Library Searches Made Easy
The OCLC Online Computer Library Center, a nonprofit group, announced this week that it was making available to the public WorldCat's search engine of library holdings. WorldCat, which is maintained by the library center, is a database of materials from 10,000 libraries worldwide. Previously, only library patrons could gain access to WorldCat's search tool. Now available through WorldCat.org, the search tool also helps people locate the library nearest them that has the book, article, or video or audio recording they are looking for. "People are starting their searches on the Web rather than in the library, and that's where we want to be," said Bob Murphy, a spokesman for the library center.—Andrea L. Foster

Yep. Now we're on that downward slide to ol' 14,000. Fear not for Rapaire, Amos. He can wipe that shit off his boots when he prepares to get back on the plane. Or maybe he can wash it off at the security checkpoint with the water from his carry-on bottle of water, or his shampoo or his shaving lotion or his conditioner . . .

There's only so much BS a person can be exposed to before they have to push the lower calibre stuff away and stand up for the true meaning of BS--which isn't synonymous with "nonsense," as the FAA/Homeland Security actions would suggest.

Amos is right and has said it so often
The chit chat has won and bullshit in a coffin.
That doesn't mean that it can't be resurrected
Hell, it can float on water.

Amos has plead for more insanity,
He wanders this thread in hopes to see
All the little chit chat be rejected
Hell, BS can float on water.

Amos can see where it all may lead
To pointless chatter we all must read
But bullshit is strong and can rise from the dead
Hell, it can float on water.

So Amos hold tight,don't give up hope
Pot-bellied pigs, can climb up a rope
All is not lost, don't be disenchanted.
Hell, bullshit can float on water,

into a creek,
connect with a river,
on to the sea,

out with your pee,
Oh!
Hell, bullshit can float on water.

Freedom to express a thought or desire will come to those who are willing to express a thought or desire. If a thought changes that desire to another desire, then that thought is more desired than the thought that was less desired therefore, considered undesirable or less desirable but non the less once desired.
If the desire to express freedom is a desired expression it is to be considered a desirable expression and free expression is a desired freedom from which to express that freedom in a way that will and is desired.
Free to expression, desire of expression and expression of freedom leads to a free form of desired expression of freedom.

Speaking of hard choices--I bit the "mom at home" bullet (since I telecommute) and said my son could have five or six of his 14-15 year old friends over today. It tends to be a noisy time when even two or three are over, but this is the last gasp of summer vacation. One boy has moved, but is back in town for a couple of days, and his friends all wanted to visit, but no one wanted them unsupervised in anyone's home. They're good kids, and supervision is one reason. So I'm working in my office and closing my ears to the racket that will erupt once the doorbell rings and another mom drops them all off before heading out to keep her appointments. Wish me luck!

I did a google search to try and find the author of the Ode you posted, Goode Rapaire, to make up for your lack in attributing it. The only trace led to a question submitted to Google Answers seeking the Ode, and a link to an early on-line discussion about the possible author of it, citing possibly one A.P. Herbert. The cited discussion was a Mudcat thread.

Small world.

I don't suppose you know where it comes from?
