Hi MOM,

Sorry to have neglected you. I see the boys have generally been up to their quarrelsome ways.

We love them anyway.

The "Foot Loose" production was quite nice. I'm going back tonight. Watching high schools test and explore their creative wings is quite uplifting.

Sum Yung Sun's drumming was spot on. In fact, the entire 5 piece band did a a great job. Turns out, he could have been nekkid because the band is behind a screen and not visable to the audience. Heard lots of comments, with which I agree, that performing to live music instead of canned really added to the musical.

Several of the kids had real pipes on them. I was very, very impressed with the singing of several, and the acting ability of all.

We had a dachshund for many years whose name was Oberon Waldemar von Schlendrien.

Match that for sheer nobility! ;-) He was an aristocrat. The poor fellow finally passed away a couple of years ago at a very advanced age, about 140 in human terms.

Rapaire has raised a bizarre string indeed.

""von" = any nobility (includes knights)
"zu" = higher nobility*, lost their name-giving place in the Luneville peace agreement 1801 or following years (Standesherren)
"von und zu" = higher nobility*, still owned the name-giving place in 1919

*- of Herrenstand, i.e. minimum Freiherr (baron)
The prefix "zu" was also awarded to the nobility that lost the territorial rule over their subjects due to Napoleon's radical changes to the German dukedoms and other small territories in 1803/1806 but retained the related title; unlike those who remained in power after 1815 (the Viennese Congress, as we all know) and bore the simple prefix "von".
"

Most, but not all, surnames of the German nobility were preceded by or at least contained the preposition von, meaning of, and sometimes by zu, which usually is translated as of when used alone or as in, at, or to. The two were occasionally combined into von und zu, meaning of and in approximately. (In general, the "von" form indicates the place the family originated, while the "zu" form indicates that they are still in possession of that place.) Other forms exist as well: von der (of the), vom (of the), zur (of the, in the, etc) and zum (of the, in the).

"Like nobles elsewhere, German nobles were acutely aware and proud of their superior social position, and often had disdain for commoners. As shown in Theodor Fontane's novel Effi Briest, they referred to one another as Geborene, or "ones who have been born", while commoners were called Geworfene, corresponding roughly to "whelped", "calved", or "foaled" in English, and properly referring only to non-human birth.
German noble families were almost always armigerous."


As the most armigerous of Mudcatters, Rapaire therefore thinks of himself as Geborene. Is it any wonder these poeple cracked up?

Hitler sort of did the Bush thing of holding up his "common man - a guy you would like to have a beer with" thing as a Nazi ideal. Interesting, isn't it? ;-)

****

Valdy was indeed an aristocrat, you could see that in his grave and thoughtful nature, but he wasn't at all arrogant or aggressive about it, quite to the contrary. He was a shy, poetic sort of soul, one who deliberately avoided the limelight, but who did everything with exquisite sensitivity and style. He always gave the impression of wearing a tuxedo, probably with a rose in the lapel. He was extremely unusual among dachshunds, as most of them tend to be quite arrogant and brash, but not Valdy. If he had been human, he would have drunk only the finest wine, and would probably have composed sonnets and played the violin, and led a rather solitary and contemplative life. He was gentle and soft spoken.

There was a sort of wistful sadness about Valdy, as if he found the worries of corporeal existence weighing on his mind. He took great care with his health, and avoided any form of excess. He remained slim and good looking until he was very old, finally become quite grey around the muzzle.

There would, no doubt, have been a massive funeral, but his body was never found. He went out one night in a drizzling rain...extremely unusual, because he hated wet weather! And... he never returned. An exhaustive search failed to turn up his body.

It is assumed by those who knew him that he never died in the usual fashion at all, but somehow ascended straight from this world into some heavenly realm, leaving no physical trace behind. He walked into paradise on a moonbeam, angels in attendance, and left us here to sorrow and remember.

A most unusual dog was Valdy.

Not anymore. He's a zombie dachshund, because he was bitten by a zombie toy poodle and was ashamed to go home. The only way to stop him is to put either salt or daschie treats in his mouth.

In the meantime, know that he's waiting...waiting...waiting...and wear your hip boots (all Canadians have them).

For example, Wimbledon was shocked to its core a couple of decades back by a Hund who showed up wearing a Pollyana yellow skirt and orange sneakers on court. A major scandal was only averted when medical pathologists investigated and declared the offender was actually a Zombihund. Rapaire's pretentious assertions notwithstanding, that is the correct medical term.

Zombiehunds are extremely stealthy. They approach silently, slinking out of the shadows. This describes Valdy's hunting technique rather well. He was indeed quite stealthy when hunting chipmunks and other rodents, a favorite pastime of his. Many a rodent died without even knowing who it was who had caught him.

Still, I think he is now in heaven and probably surveying the grounds of his magnificent schloss, high in the heavenly Alps, and trying to decide whether it should be roast duck tonight or pheasant under glass.

He might, however, have been sent to Dachsund Hell for his depradations of others among God's creations, in which case he might be choosing between roasting Dachshund and pheasant-up-your-ass. No good choices once you take the Big Fall.

Nonsense. A dachshund's God-given job is to hunt down and destroy rodents. He would be failing his very life purpose if he did not hound them to their doom. Valdy knew this, and he pursued his vocation in the impeccable and focused way that he brought to everything he did.

Amos, my son has ungenerously deleted my links posted on a remark of his on Facebook, but I think I captured most of it in a new thread I started here. The subject is a Man of the Year promoted by hackers and an obscure game that has its origins in Dostoevsky (thinking about the polar bear). More or less. I think it is suitable as a BS subject, I should probably have launched it straight from here. See what you can do with it, will you? "The Game" is mentioned in the thread title.

I am at a loss to know who Moot is, what 4chan is, or why anyone would find it amusing to play The Game. Well, I do have some theories about the latter, because it resonates with a deep archetypal pattern of creation and resistance, and so has a gloss of some sort of cleverness; but a very short-lived one, I would think. The only thing that is interesting about it all is how the guy got his players to play and what they did to cook the books.
