Well... if I had done the inspection, Rap, I would have only pointed out that the systems were old. As for the wax... no way to tell during a one-time visual inspection although I did use a non-invasive moisture meter. All in all, I probably would have reported... this is a typical house in this neighbourhood so take yer chances.

I have been sued up the arse by people who think that I should have used my xray vision during a 3 to 4 hour visual inspection. FFS! If I had xray vision, I would have charged a LOT more $$$. I am glad I lost my business because of the fucked up care I received in post-op after the tumor removal in my parotid gland. It also meant NO MORE CELLPHONE. Sorry for yelling. Pet peeve them there cell... electronic leashes. I have a cell. Made one call on it to make sure it worked. Haven't turned it on since. I bought minutes and make sure I top them up and roll them over in case I need the cell in an emergency. I'll bet that pisses Rogers off.... I hope.

Cell phones suck, and my cousin, who was a trucker and used his cell all day on the highway, may not see Xmas. He has been battling a brain tumour for about 4 years. Chemo up the arse... one batch was from Switzerland and he got it because cousin Moira's husband is Dr. Gruber at the NY State School of Medicine. Blue Cross wouldn't pay the $26K unless 4 docs in Moncton said he needed it and they bowed to Gruber on it. Long story short... Rodass (Rodney) is going to die. From a fuckin cell phone. Ahhhh shit... tears cometh again. Sorry for the drama. Just put the cell down and walk away.

Jesus H. Christ I am getting tired of waiting for these thunderstorms to get here and move on. I wanna go to bed but I gotta be on deck for Mum in case she freaks out. And, what if the power goes out? Little chance of that but if I am not on deck, well, who wouldn't be on deck for their Mum, eh? This sucks. AHA! A flash of lightning! Please sweet Baby Jesus... get this shit done and over so I can go to bed.

"Imminent Threat" warning came on my cell phone -- flash floods. Fortunately they didn't affect me, but I don't know about those Down Below.

Yup, all the low places flooded,including The Legion's missile silos. Guess the preemptive strike on Boise is out for a while, at least until the launch fuses dry out.

I make a mean clam chowder. Well, the clams do, I suppose. And the water, milk, flour and corn starch. Well, the onions really do the trick. The fresh spuds (Dog bless America for early spuds) beef it up. I guess all I did was throw it in a pot and boil it. Sniff... I am worthless. I wish I was a clam. At least I'd be tasty.

Bearded clams excluded. It's dicey eh?

DIcing bearded clams is highly risky, Gnuzer. Suggest you stick to them imported Rocky Mountain oysters.

Perhaps you're a Space Alien and are unaware of it? Take this simple test!

1. Do you have a craving to visit Roswell, New Mexico?

2. Do you have an insider's knowledge of Area 51?

3. If I said "inertialess antigravitic hyperspace drive" would you be able to sketch one from memory?

4. Do you enjoy inserting various probes into people?

5. At night, looking at the stars, do you wistfully sigh, "Third star to the right and straight on 'til morning"?

6. Do you occasionally receive mental messages from the Galactic Overlord?

7. Do you obey them?

8. When you see an attractive human being do you think, "Nice protein!"?

9. Do you consider yourself to be politically liberal or conservative or something else?

10. Are you REALLY certain people landed on the moon? Did you meet them there?

Ah...I've tried to keep it sorta undercover. Really. But I'll tell now, and it's THE REAL TRUTH.

Last September I took over as facilitator and Peer Specialist for a local VA PTSD Group (Group North, to be exact). I am trained to help veterans (and others, I guess) who have PTSD work through recurrent problems, such as flashbacks, anger, nightmares, depression, and such stuff. I volunteer to do this; for VA purposes I'm a "WOC" (With Out Compensation). My "home base" is the George E. Wahlen Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salt Lake City (see here.) I took this on because the person who was doing it was retiring and the group would fold if someone didn't step up. It is my very good fortune to be the Peer Specialist most distant from the place in SLC and work out of the most distant Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC).

Veterans don't talk about their hard experiences except with other veterans, so a Peer Specialized program provides someone who's been there, done that, and won't make judgements like "You shouldn't have machine-gunned that teenager even if he WAS shooting at you, you horrid little man!" It also frees up a psychiatrist, psychologist, or social worker to do more in-depth work with those who need it.

Yes, there are some pretty hairy stories out there. No, I can't tell you. You see, even Dear Mom MOAB ain't worth going to a federal penitentiary over.

But I'll leave this thought: people with PTSD is far, far more likely to harm themselves that others. Hollywood and the media have a LOT to answer for. And it's no big secret that as the Vietnam vets retire and work doesn't eat up their time, The Memories are coming back and the PTSD that they've had all along to flare up and bite them in the butt.

But it was a good session yesterday.

I grew up with an MSW psychiatric social worker mother who was a vet (WAC during WWII, working psych wards in Army hospitals). PTSD as a term hadn't been invented before she retired, though the concept of "shell shock" and the depression following enlistment were known. She worked with child protective services, a tough beat also, and we used to hear stories (sans names or identifying aspects) because she needed to get it out of her system. Had she lived longer, I think she'd have been good at the kind of work you describe.

Just happened and I just wrote this flat out so ignore any typos, grammar infractions.. even logical progression... I was trying to get feelings down on paper, so to speak.

So, I'm down ta the Powerhouse, the one in the building complex what got the Fairlanes Bowling in er, an I see this guy squatted and holding a cardboard sign in front of the vacant shop next door. I got outta me truck (he couldn't see me) and checked me billfold. No fivers, so's I go in making sure not to look in his direction, got me case and got a fiver in hand. I comes out an he's gone. Fuck me!

I was immediately taken back to a similar incident some years ago.
I'm up ta my buddy's corner store an as I am backin out, this guy what looks in his 60s was comin toward the truck with one hand extended. I looked directly in his eyes... I could see a desperation, a fear. I saw red blues eyes and several days of white beard growth. He didn't look good and I felt a desperation, fear. I took off. I turned onto the street and felt an overwhelming sense of guilt. I asked out loud, loudly, "Why didn't you help that man? What the fuck is wrong with you?" I made a left into a gas bar just 200 m away and went back. He was gone. I drove around the block… he had vanished… no way he could have gotten further away unless he was driving and I just couldn't see that. I was pissed off at me. And then it hit me. I pictured his face in my mind and it was me. I swear that he looked like me. Is that what had frightened me. I continued to look for him but to no avail. It weighed on my mind… still does.

Well, this time? No fuckin way! I roared that truck up to the main drag. Nope. I floored that truck back around the building complex an I spies a guy on a bike an he's got a piece a cardboard. I zipped up alongside an I says, "Hey buddy. I seen ya back there with a sign. What's it say?" "I'm trying to get help." I handed him the fiver and he thanks me sooo much. Then he tells me he's tryin ta get money ta get back home on accounta he's livin in a roomin house on assistance an he lost his job an… I stopped him, got me wallet out and said "I'll trade ya a ten for that fiver. He takes ta thankin me profusely again and I knew… I asked "Where ya from?" Stephenville, NF… he can get a hitch but he's gotta come up with $165 fer gas an… I stopped him and held out the fiver an said "When you get to Stephenville, you look up Ed LaValley an tell him Gary Owens told you to say hello for him." He started all over again and I said "You just remember to tell Ed Lavalley that Gary Owens said hello." I drove away.

I hope he gets home. I hope he contacts Ed. My hello might be worth a lot more than $15.

Odd thing how odd things happen eh?

Is that wishful thinking that the disposal will die? Did you try the reset button? Maybe it's just playing a trick on you, or Gluon jostled it when she hid under the sink before jumping out to surprise you recently.

Mom, you know I love my music and I love singing good old songs and even some good new songs. But how many times do I have to listen to a guy with a Yamaha and a flatpick play "Wagon Wheel" in galumphey four-four time sounding like a washbasin being rolled down a frozen street? Or any other of a dozen 1980 standards with the musicality of a starving giraffe meeting an acacia tree? It's not the songs themselves, I suppose, it's the styling that sounds like pressed metal forms coming off a conveyor belt.

Well, Mom, no one else seems to care. So here's a poem to cheer your heart!

I Wonder Where My Papa Is?
by "The Sweet Singer of Michigan"

I wonder where my papa is,
Oh, where could he have gone,
I wonder why he does not come
And see his Lilly Long.
He would come and sit by me
When the fever burnt my brow,
I wonder where my papa is,
For he comes not near me now.

I hear no more the foot pace
In the hall by my door,
Where he would gently, gently tread
Upon the oaken floor.
His place is vacant by the hearth,
There stands his easy chair;
I hear no more his loving voice
Raising the evening prayer.

The last time I saw my papa dear
Was just five days ago,
He took me in his arms and said,
"You are getting better slow,
Thank God, my little Lilly pet
Will soon be well again,
And run about the house and play
With little Nettie Lane."

I wonder where my papa is,
Oh, where could he have gone,
It cannot be he has forgotten
His little Lilly Long.
No, he never would have left me
And mamma without aid;
I fear my papa has fallen
A victim of the "plague."

The mother listened to her child,
Her heart filled with pain
To hear her loved one mourn for him
Who would never come again.
Tears were falling from her eyes,
From her bossom heaved a sigh;
Little Lilly asked in wonder,
"Mamma dear, what makes you cry?"

"Dearest Lilly must I tell you
That your papa is no more,
That he cannot come and see you
And caress you as of yore.
He has gone to live with Jesus,
In the heavenly home above,
Where are dwelling the blessed
In God's everlasting love."

Lilly listened to her mother,
She uttered not a sound,
O'er her little pale cheeks softly
Tears began to trinkle down;
At last she sweetly murmured,
"Mamma dear, you and I
Must live so we can meet papa
In Heaven, by and by."

"Yes, my child," the mother answered,
"Your words are very true,
While we live on earth we should keep
The heavenly land in view;
Then bright on earth will be our future,
Bright as a shining star;
We will live in love together,
Till we reach that home afar."

There are worse...here's a good example of that. Note the exquisite use of phrasing and grammar. Big Mick would, I'm sure, be proud of this poem, if only he knew about it.

Grand Rapids Cricket Club
by the same person as before

In Grand Rapids is a handsome club,
Of men that cricket play,
As fine a set of skillful men
That can their skill display.
They are the champions of the West,
They think they are quite fine,
They've won a hundred honors well;
It is their most cunning design.

Brave Kelso, he's considered great,
Chief of the club he is found;
Great crowds he draws to see him bowl
The ball upon the ground.
And Mr. Follet is very brave,
A lighter player than the rest,
He got struck severe at the fair ground
For which he took a rest.

When Mr. Dennis does well play,
His courage is full great,
And accidents to him occur,
But not much, though, of late.
This ball play is a dangerous game,
Brave knights to play it though;
Those boys would be the nation's pride,
If they to war would go.

From Milwaukee their club did come,
With thoughts of skill at play,
But beat they was, and then went home --
Had nothing more to say.
Grand Rapids club that cricket play,
Will soon be known afar,
Much prouder do the members stand,
Like many a noble star.
