It will not be, keberoxu
For who would stoop to do it? Who?
Mother of greatness! Mother of toasts!
Mother of fifty-six thousand posts!
Cheerer of souls! Shunner of ghosts!
Who of ALL threads has given most!
Stop the MOAB? Close the thread?
Send to rest her poor gray head?
Oh, never let such things be said
While e'en ONE sibling wields a pen
And gives one post to raise her up again!
ONWARD, my siblets! Onward still, I say,
For over the hill across the distant way
Lies the glittering dawn of Fifty Seven Kay!

Half a leek, half a leak, half a leg onwards.
Into the 57 kay rides the brave siblings.
Politics to the right of them, trolls to the left of them
Volleyed and thundered!
Onward they wrote and wrote
And they knew by rote
MOAB would never die!
Gallant brave siblings!

Meatloaf? Fuck meatloaf. I cooked an old recipe today. To the letter. Fuck meatloaf. Hamburgers with all the fixin's from this day forward. And, they shall have VIDALIA ONIONS! Vidalia onions from Gergia, USA. And USA pickles and NEVER pickles from India at half the price of USA pickles. (Pickles from India on my local Sobeys shelves??? FUCK OFF!) And I shall eat my hamburgers with gusto! But, that shit where it says my burger might be from USA? I ain't happy about that. You Yanks got burger full of steroids. I'll stick to Canuck beef. Why do you guys allow that shit?

One morning, as I was out sibling
The sibbles were strong in the West
And they seemed not to quibble
From sibble to sibbled
Agreeing that Mom was the best!
And the siblings all sibbled back, "Yes!"

They said "Why do we post with our siblings?
And why do we sibble all day?
We ain't gettin' no where
And we're losing our hair,
And we all know that sibling don't pay."

But they never reached a hundred Kay
Never watch as it drew to the top.
They never watched Mom ride the wave back up,
And they say we don't know how to stop!

So I caught up the rest of my siblings
And stuck in a barb for Rapaire
And when BWL tried to chastise Donuel
I just made up some crap from thin air.

I told them, "Here's why we post with our siblings!"
"Here's why we scribbble all day!"
"We scribble and sibble, because we know well,
That we're bound for that Fifty Eight Kay!"

Ransom Hardly Wirthit, Kansas City MO. 1976

Mom! The room in which one relieves oneself in a home is called a "bathroom". A similar room in a public building is called a "restroom", presumably because it has no bath or shower. So, what about homes in which the bathtub is in one room and the toilet is in another? Does it have a bathroom and a restroom?

Dunno, but down here in Texas when people need to visit that room they often time say "I have to wash my hands." Presumably, after whatever else really takes them to that room.

Sorry I haven't been around much, MOM, there has been some distracting stuff going on in Texas. (And today I see the Clown in Chief is headed down here because Harvey knocked him off of the front page for a couple of days and he wants back on. I defy him to get wet and hug some poor sweaty bedraggled survivor). Time to go outside and work in the yard. MOM, are you going to make some of your iced green tea with lemon balm? That would taste good this afternoon.

And why is a small room with a sink and a toilet called a "half-bath"? It doesn't have a bath at all. It should be called a "no-bath".


And speaking of the Clown in Chief, the only reason Trump hasn't royally fucked up the Harvey response is because of a relatively recent law requiring that the FEMA director have at least five years prior experience in disaster work. Left to his own resources, Trump would probably nominated one of his cronies and it would be Heck-of-a-Job-Brownie all over again.

He picked up a poor black toddler in a one-piece pajama and planted a kiss right on the lips. So unnatural it smacks of child abuse.

Ironic also that "toiletries" doesn't apply to THE toilet (the noun) but to the older existing term applied to act of dressing and preparing oneself (getting dressed and made up has been around a lot longer than the porcelain thrones, though I suppose there is an act of that preparation that included the chamber pot or a trip to the jakes or outhouse.) So is that older term a noun also, or a verb? (I'm too lazy to look it up.)

On Friday 1 September, to go by the lady who let me through the turnstile at the Rental Car Center after checking my license, the whole world and his brother showed up at Sky Harbor airport and proceeded to the airport's Rental Car Center to take all the autos.
What remained for the likes of me, the next day, was pickup trucks and minivans. All the sedans and coupes were outtathere.

So I'm driving the rental minivan (sigh) in beautiful Paradise Valley with the Sirius satellite radio on, some station called the Bridge.

Except for Idaho's Ice Cave bats, which live in volcanic tubes left as the Yellowstone hotspot barfed up lava in its move across Idaho. THOSE bats are bad characters -- usually rabid and with a very, very cold bite. They live mostly on ice worms.

Hi, Mom!

Have you ever noticed that it's impossible to make a bad film based on a Phillip K. Dick story? If PDK were still alive, he'd probably write a story in which several film-makers attempted to intentionally make bad films from his stories, but they all turned out to be a roaring successes. Then they'd make a film based on that story and, needless to say, it would be great.

Of course, I meant "PKD", not "PDK". PDK is Phillip D. Kick, not Phillip K. Dick. Phillip D. Kick was not an author at all. He was a janitor at an elementary school in Gary, Indiana. A film based on one of his stories would be a surefire failure since he was barely literate and had the imagination of a garden slug.

We did it.

Verizon. Apple SE phones as they fit the hand better than most of the others. Outside of the Otterbox case mine is a neat-o silver color. Inside the case it's black.

Now we gotta learn to use them phones, cuz we'd' always been flip phones and Sprint. Sprint since using them for our long distance carrier in the early 90s. Thank gnu! the phone numbers are the same.

See, back about 2.5 weeks ago my less-than-a-year-old flip phone croaked. I took it in, Sprint fooled with it, and offered me some really stupid plans to replace it. Well, we'd decided that we wanted a GSM network, texting, and a modicum of data (use wifi, let others supply the connection whenever you can). So we did. And with only 128GB in each phone I simply don't know how we'll be able to support all that we want to do!

Anyway, off to DC and then Iceland on the 15th, back on Oct. 2. Then off to see a neice git herself hitched in St. Louie on the 14th and then to Manchester, NH and then home until roughly November 12 and then back on the day after Tgiving and then...home. Nothing on the schedule for me (Pat's got a thing in early February) after that -- yet.
