Subject: BS: Catspaw - Change of Plan - hold the card
From: katlaughing
Date: 10 Jan 11 - 02:23 PM

I decided a new thread would be better than adding to the other. Karen just called me. She sounded tired and said she's been better. Pat is back in the ICU unit with a fever of 107 on a cold blanket to try to get it down and on constant temperature monitor. He's back on the vent. His mind is still working....he's aware. She said he is so skinny...something she would never have thought she's say about him.

They are very strict about visiting in the unit, so she is going to go to work, tonight, in order to be able to see him, tomorrow, as they are getting a hug snowstorm.

Please continue to do what you can. Karen said the Sing really helped and I told her we'd do it, again. I'll re-up that thread..maybe we could just do it at noon or midnight, whatever is best for each person, with him in mind, every day if possible.

Thanks and much love to Karen, Pat and the boys as well as Connie, Wayne and family.

I had a fever of 107 once, and it made me the man I am today.

Can't hurt Spaw; he's that way to start with.

Now git up and git outa there! It makes you sick!

A fever like that feels awful, but it means his body is working really hard to get rid of something. Good luck getting over this and back into the recovery area, Spaw!

Good idea to start a new thread.

Not the kind of news I like to hear about our old Mudcat friend.

Looks as if I'll have to pour out another full cup of mead to the Old Gods, to help get him out of there and back home where he belongs.

Deep breathing and healing thoughts activated. I am on the road (on tour in Florida with my dear husband). We will both be singing for Spaw and holding him in our hearts. I can read the Mudcat on my phone but for some reason can't post. So this is my first chance to see this.

Spaw, I've been sorry ever since we drove cross Ohio last year and didn't stop in to say hi. Listen, you have to get better soon so we can meet next time for sure!

Look here, spaw old boy... I don't care how hard you try, you just can't boil beans on your forehead, and niether should you either.

Now let's get serrious here... Kev McGrath tripped over the grim fellows scyth the other day, but his pals pounded him black and blue and brought him to his feet. Don't make the doctors pound on you, it makes them feel guilty about it latter, pounding a poor fellow on the cheast just because he ... well, don't do it, or we will be vexed as well as sad.

Here is a challenge I placed on Kev... a race between you and Kev to reach your hundredth birthday... lots of crunchy veggies... briskish accompanied walks... etc. I've joined both Team Spaw and Team Kev in this contest... so, drop the fever old boy and start the heavy breathing and low carbs...

Get well old boy, and back to blasphamy on line.

We all care about you, and wish we had a friend who could try to bring positive energy and focus to us in a struggle like the one Pat is facing. Listen...you rest. You have done what you can. Let the rest of us pray, focus energy, channel light, and do what we can for our old friend. Believe me, if I could take a share of his pain, I would, just as I know you would.

Remember how in the old novels someone is lying in bed surrounded by anxious loved ones or even just one lone haggard person at the bedside and then the fever breaks and the breathing quiets and there is a small sheen of sweat on the brow and the doctor turns and says, He has turned the corner. He will be all right.

And everyone falls to weeping tears of relief because they know that against heavy odds he has done it again.

The fever breaks, Spaw, and we are so relieved. Don't forget, Pat.

Thanks to all of you. I called Karen just now and woke her up. Good grief! She just laughed and said she'd had plenty of sleep and not to worry.

She is "guardedly optimistic." He turned around, today, and they plan to move him to the step down unit, tomorrow. He was the most coherent she's seen since this all started and he just realised, today, that he's been in hospital for 45 days.

I forgot to tell you all that Karen put a new doorknob on all by herself. He is very proud of her for that AND he made her leave early to go get her tire fixed. They are having more snow.

They've been alternating him on the vent and CPAP.

I told her I'd talk to her again in a couple of days.

Thanks, again, y'all.

Just had a great conversation with Sister Connie. She is a wonderful person...I can see why Karen and Pat love her and Wayne so much. IN the course of our conversation, I was telling her about how much my osteopath's soft tissue manipulation helps my back and we ought to see if there is one there who could work on Pat because it can really help with breathing and back pain. It works on the para-sympathetic something or others, muscles? Anyway, I just know I can always breath more easily after she works on me and my back doesn't hurt as much.

Then, I told Connie my doc also said I should have a hot rock massage, (for real, guys.:-) THAT got Connie and I to laughing at the thought of having a SPA DAY for SPAW. I told her I'd be sharing that vision with you all. She envisioned that one scene in Wizard of Oz when they are at the salon getting all fixed up. I have plenty of other visions, but I think I'll stick with that one!:-)

A severe aside here. "Our new senator, Mr. Manchin, is not pleased." Janie

Janie, Manchin impressed me when I saw and heard him on a panel recently so I went looking for his vitals. Alas, I am no longer impressed.

i doubt I will ever understand why it is that bright, decent, well-meaning people can disagree so radically on what needs to be done.

Good news...no fever and he was moved to a private acute care hospital yesterday at 4p. Karen was there with him until about 8 or 9p when she went home. He is alert and aware enough to know about Ted Williams, the homeless radio voice guy.

He is in ICU in private room, really nice, with sliding glass doors. All docs, etc. came in and talked with them about what the plan is from now on, for getting him better, etc. AND, they listened to Karen and Pat. He will move to a regular private room in a couple of days if all goes as planned. No laptop available, though, much as they'd like.

I told Karen we'd work some Mudcat Mojo on her work as she's having trouble with the leave of absence people at work, but will get it worked out. He is doing well with CPAP and is very alert and anxious to get to work to go home.

Thanks,

kat

She should discuss this with the folks in Human Resources, who should have a comprehensive understanding of the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), most Federal employees are entitled to a total of up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period for the following purposes:

  • the birth of a son or daughter of the employee and the care of such son or daughter;
  • the placement of a son or daughter with the employee for adoption or foster care;
  • the care of spouse, son, daughter, or parent of the employee who has a serious health condition; or
  • a serious health condition of the employee that makes the employee unable to perform the essential functions of his or her positions.

    Under certain conditions, an employee may use the 12 weeks of FMLA leave intermittently. An employee may elect to substitute annual leave and/or sick leave, consistent with current laws and OPM's regulations for using annual and sick leave, for any unpaid leave under the FMLA. (The amount of sick leave that may be used to care for a family member is limited. See "Sick Leave to Care for a Family Member with a Serious Health Condition") FMLA leave is in addition to other paid time off available to an employee.

    SRS, thanks. She's been there several times in the past. It is mostly a deal of papers, tons of them, which have to be filled out every time she wants to request a day off under FMLA because she has asked for it as needed, not in a lump amount. That, and the people in HR, who have to approve it, are really rude/snotty, according to Karen. We had the papers when Rog broke his foot and they tried to make us use it while waiting for Workers Comp. The paper work is unbelievable, but it's still good it's available.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear about the laptop. Karen just said she wished she could get him one to use while in there.:-)

    I was going to mention FMLA but SRS beat me to it. And there's no reason for HR to be snotty and rude about it -- it's FEDERAL LAW, not some benefit given by the employer.

    Actually, there's no reason to be snotty and rude to people at work at anytime. Angry and/or murderous, perhaps, but not impolite. Remember, ALWAYS wash your hands well after strangling someone because they might have been carrying germs that could make you sick.

    It sounds to me like Karen's employer is just trying to make it hard to use FMLA Leave. And she should find out when it "resets" itself -- on January 1 or one year from the date it is first used. If the employer's policy is based on a calendar year (resets January 1) then she started new and fresh when it became 2011.

    ..."Come hither to me - hither, hither," said Peeleg, with a significance in his eye that almost startled me. "Look ye, lad; never say that on board the Peapod. Never say it anywhere. Captain Ahab did not name himself. 'Twas a foolish, ignorant whim of his crazy, widowed mother, who died when he was only a twelvemonth old. And yet the old squaw Tistig, at Gayhead, said that the name would somehow prove prophetic. And, perhaps, other fools like her may tell thee the same. I wish to warn thee. It's a lie. I know Captain Ahab very, very well; I've sailed with him as mate years ago and as cabin boy before that; I know what he is - a good man - not a pious, good man, like Bildad, but a swearing good man - something like me - only there's a good deal more of him than I have, if thou takest my drift. Aye, aye, I know that he was never very jolly; and I know that on the passage home, he was a little out of his mind for a spell; but it was the sharp shooting pains in the bleeding stump of his manhood that brought that about, as any one might see. I know, too, that ever since he lost his, ah, leg last voyage by that accursed whale, he's been a kind of moody - desperate moody, and savage sometimes; but that will all pass off. And once for all, let me tell thee and assure thee, young man, it's better to sail with a moody good captain than a laughing bad one. So good-bye to thee - and wrong not Captain Ahab, because he happens to have a wicked name and used to have the wickedest, ah, leg in all of Nantucket. Besides, my boy, he has a wife - not three voyages wedded - a sweet, resigned girl, for what else can she now be? Think of that; by that sweet girl that old man has a child: hold ye then there can be any utter, hopeless harm in Ahab? No, no, my lad; stricken, poxed, blasted, if he be, Ahab has his humanities of a sort!"

The smaller device might be easier to use.

    Looking at Kat's remarks I get the impression they don't have one now. Laptop or other. Sam's Club has them starting at $300.

    Ok Spaw I'm thowin down the gauntlet for a challenge of story tellin

    True Story Tellin

    I triple dog dare ya




    On Niagara Blvd, north of Buffalo in Tonawanda there is a Volkswagen dealership named Schmidt's. Old man Schmidt was an honest guy who looked like a heavy set Bob Newhart. He was a hands off owner and didn't pressure or pry anyone especially the sales manager Lance Parker who impressed Mr. Schmidt because he was an intimidating guy.
    Parker came from a military and law enforcement family going back 3 generations. Lance was sales manager since he was over the top assertive and also because he got thrown off the DC police force from one too many kills with his police weapon.

    The sales staff was Don the soft spoken rookie who said he had been a hypnotist, soul brother Charlie with an infectious smile and finally Mark Levin who was top dog salesman and should have been a politician and might be one day since his dad was a judge. Mark Levin had come from his own business where he contracted to train and motivate sales staffs. His dynamic personality cut that career short when he jumped on a disagreeable sales manager's desk and pissed all over the desk and manager. The manager had apparently made a few disparaging remarks about Jews in which Mark voiced a fluid resignation speech.
    Since Lance was a Viet Nam veteran, a disgraced dismissed policeman and a recent divorce' he relied on his sales staff for his therapy in the form of dishing out vengeance for all the grief that the world had dumped on him. One day he asked the rookie Don about how the Police Chief's son was doing after test driving the Wolfsburg GTI. Don mumbled something about the kid being a snotty show off and nearly wrecked the car. As if on cue Lance stood and shouted "what are you, some kind of hero to zero? He is the Chief's son you son of a bitch and you're not worthy to wipe his ass" Don said he was glad about that and was summarily told to get the F out of the office.
    The next day Charlie told Don that he better watch out, Parker has a way of getting even the devil hates.
    Charlie and Don were friends only after Don said he would kick Charlie's ass. Although Charlie was twice his size he took it as some kind of macho respect and sort of looked out for Don after that.
    The showroom speaker barked "Don to the sales office" Don walked in sheepishly while Mark was writing two sales contracts at once. Don stood there for almost two minutes while Lance went through the motions of paperwork. There was a grilled chicken sandwich from Chick Fillet on the desk that smelled delicious. "Sit down" Lance said in a tone that almost sounded apologetic. "It looks like the Chief's son is buying a Charger, I guess it's a better fit. So anyway you need 3 more sales to beat your draw so show those Golf GTIs, they have the best spread. Don said OK while looking at the sandwich. Lance said "have you had lunch? 'no' "here take this extra sandwich, Debbie brought me lunch but I already ate" "Thanks". Don was not without suspicion but the sandwich said "I taste even better than my delicious aroma"
    Despite the subtle warning, Don did not know that Lance had a older brother Randy in the FBI with total access to black ops labs. What you thought were rumors about the FBI carrying our covert operations in Cuba to discredit or even eliminate Castro, were all true. Even the chemical that purportedly caused such intestinal distress that they planned to give it Fidel in a drink to cause him pain or embarrassment while giving a speech. Randy gave some of this elixir as a present to Lance for a ex wife prank that they had only joked about until today.
    Don jumped in his VW Golf and was on his way to pick up his girlfriend at University of Buffalo on the bright June evening. In the car his stomach was making a squeaking sound like clean tires on the showroom linoleum floor. Don had followed Cindy from Rochester and they had been together for 3 years. Don and Cindy stopped at the Hertel Ave sub shop and got 2 hot meatball and cheese subs if laid end to end were over 4 feet long.
    Back at the apartment the bedroom was hot. The windows had been painted shut decades ago. The living room opened to a porch door but whenever the dog upstairs went to the bathroom the porch would rain dog pee so the door stayed closed except for this first really warm June night. Don had discovered that the TV in the tiny living room would work only if he took a spray bottle of water and squirted the back of the TV but Cindy wanted to get right to bed. While they both felt a bit like beached whales they laid spooning after love making for a bit when the persistent stomach noises all day changed frequencies into a much deeper register. Suddenly Don realized that he was actually swelling before his eyes. There was no pain but he knew time was up. First he had to lift a leg over Cindy to get out of bed. Oh my god that's impossible without unclamping the desperate sphincter of doom. Trapped on the inside of the bed he began to sweat trying to think of some kind of rolling move but the bed was right against the wall. He thought maybe I could just stand and run when Cindy asked "Are you OK?
    He was halfway over Cindy when she broke the silence and all hell wanted to break loose. Don's failed choreography turned to plan B which was to just let go under the sheet and blanket and hope for the best. Just then a near perfect B flat tuba blast from Also Sprach Zarathustra began to sound and to both their amazement grew deeper down to the range of the bottom pedal bass note on the grand organ. The sound resonated in Don's chest. Maybe the submarine sandwich saved his life from an intestinal tear but it may have acted like cannon wadding. Ten seconds had passed and so had at least 6 liters of gas as it neared the 15 second mark. Cindy's eyes were as big as saucers, Don was looking for any opportunity to force some kind of emergency cut off valve attempt but the end wasn't even close.
    Twenty miles away was Erie Lackawanna renown for the slinkiest steel mills in the country. Tonight Lackawanna was a garden of lilies compared to Don's bedroom. The only place that had more methane was the moon Titan. Just when the staggering duration of window rattling woofer splitting bass notes became truly terrifying as a cannon like retort introduced the finale like fireworks on the 4th of July. Bambambam BAAM Bam bam.
    It was dark. There was no breathing. They both staggered out of the bedroom and breathed their first deep breath at the back porch door as though they had emerged from a deep dive while holding their breath. The only other door opened to a stale hallway so the apartment did not exchange a bit of air. There were flies on the floor spinning on their backs. Don and Cindy gasped for Oxygen.
    Neither of them had anything to compare it to as they headed for the car at midnight. While they didn't know it yet they were actually drawn closer by this near cosmic event. It had been the fart of a lifetime, the fart of the century. There had been nothing like it for eons since the dinosaurs had died out.
    Don returned to work the next day and felt Lance's eyes study every move for any detail, for any clue. He hovered nearby to catch any word or tell tale indication what had happened last night. Don never gave him the satisfaction. Even Mark cracked first and spilled the beans that he was told to find out if anything unusual happened last night.
    What Lance didn't know was that he had given Don ten times the recommended dose of "FBI Castro Oil". The next time he tried it he gave his wife's new husband 100 times what he gave Don. It was the first case of spontaneous human combustion that Tonawanda had ever seen.

    Pat is now in a private room and will be having his first physical therapy session, today. He is at "Select Acute Care Facility" room #336, but Karen didn't have the addy handy and I am not sure I found the right one online, so I'll have to post it later.

    Anyway, he is on his way back up, but it could be a long haul. Karen said this is the first time she's seen him seem so overwhelmed, getting over the shock of how long it's been and what it has entailed. He's feeling really anxious to get better but is very, very weak. They've stopped all antibiotics, but one and will wean him off the vent over about a week and a half. They really need the "output" to slow down so that he can take care of himself. He's worried that he won't be able to work up to a strong enough point before the next three weeks are over, plus the pain of it all is very wearing.

    Karen is really impressed with this facility. At the hospital he'd been in, she said the docs were never around or available to speak with. At this place, everyone seems available and caring. They are having a meeting on Thursday with his case mgr., docs, Karen & Pat, obviously, plus all other people involved, to map out their strategies for getting him on his way back.

    I felt a nice, deep sleep come over me this morning...the kind that comes after deep fatigue...may it bode well for our friend.

    Karen asked me to tell you all THANK YOU...it means a great deal to her, esp., to know we are all out here sending them good thoughts and all. She thought maybe she could get some handicapped program to help with a laptop or something, but she hasn't much time for looking into it and was grateful and overwhelmed at even the thought of some help for a notepad(?) or laptop for him.

    When I called, just now, I got to talk with Tristan! He told me he and his mom were cleaning house and that he was fine and, yes, he had been cleaning the snow, too. I love the way he says my name, "caught."He is such a sweet young man. Karen said she had to do some deep cleaning, stuff that's been piling up, including the two of them moving the piano out of the middle of the room!*bg* We didn't get around to Michael, but I would guess he was either helping or out with his gf. They've both been great for Karen and good about going to see Pat.

    That's it for a few more days, unless something happens. I'm going back to rest some more

    ...No man prefers to sleep two in a bed unless it be with a woman. In fact, you would a good deal rather not sleep with your own brother, especially were he younger and prone to dampening the mattress at night. I don't know how it is, but people like to be private when they are sleeping alone. And when it comes to sleeping with an unknown stranger, in a strange inn, in a strange town, and that stranger a harpooneer, then your objections indefinitely multiply. Nor was there any earthly reason why I as a sailor should sleep two in a bed, more than anybody else; for sailors no more sleep two in a bed at sea, than bachelor Kings do ashore, which isn't saying much when you think about it. To be sure they all sleep together in one apartment, but you have your own hammock, and cover yourself with your own blanket, and sleep in your own skin, unless the cabin boy be comely.

    The more I pondered over this harpooneer, the more I abominated the thought of sleeping with him. It was fair to presume that being a harpooneer, his linen or woollen, as the case might be, would not be of the tidiest, certainly none of the finest, wore he any at all. I began to twitch all over. Besides, it was getting late, and my decent harpooneer ought to be home and going bedwards, especially as I would be sharing him. Suppose now, he should tumble in upon me at midnight - how could I tell from what vile hole he had been coming?

But this is even better, and thank you Dan, to the rescue again! Is there anything else this computer needs? A percussion pad for sitting on Spaw's lap, or do you suppose he'd blow his own - er - first - anyway, will he destroy the computer without having a barrier? ;)

    mp3 players are all over the place these days. My last two or three phones could act like mp3 players. The last dedicated players I bought were for my son and myself, replacing a couple we'd bought 2 years earlier. He managed to wear his out then kill mine when I gave it to him. He wore out the new one in one semester and I didn't give him mine again, having learned my lesson. I offer this story only as a way to suggest that the SansaFuze 8 gig player sounds good, but it doesn't hold up as well as others might. Any suggestions on other players, or perhaps we can make sure to send mp3 files on something like a flash drive and a good set of earphones to use with the computer? Or a Pandora account for his computer? I have heard good things about those, but have never tried it.

    We have to all chip in and get Spaw a Dachshund as a homecoming gift when he returns from the medical facilities. Better that it should be a purebred miniature Dachshund, because they have really buggy little eyes and sharp noses and they're mostly a bit nuts. Very entertaining. ;-) I can't imagine what could put him in a better mood and hasten his recovery more effectively. Perhaps the dog could even be brought to his bedside now if the nurses are agreeable. Dachshunds do not mind strong odours. In fact, they seek them out. The more I tbink about it, the better this idea sounds.

    Or if Dave has an old Oldsmobile Cutlass with knocking rods and a rusted out floor board that has been used to haul hay bails and manure, I know a certain guy who is currently hospitalized but loves a challenge. I guarantee he would have the engine overhauled and spitting blue flame, but he would likely fix the floor board with a piece of cardboard.
    Not to mention any names.
    Like Greaseball...

    ...We had been sitting in this crouching manner for some time, when all at once I thought I would open my eyes; for when between sheets, whether by day or by night, and whether asleep or awake, I have a way of always keeping my eyes shut, in order the more to concentrate the snugness of being in bed, especially with Queequeg. Because no man can ever feel his own identity aright except his eyes be closed; as if darkness were indeed the proper element of our essences, though light be more congenial to our clayey part. Upon opening my eyes then, and coming out of my own pleasant and self-created darkness into the imposed and coarse outer gloom of the unilluminated twelve-o'clock-at-night, I experienced a disagreeable revulsion about myself and what I had just done. Nor did I at all object to the hint from Queequeg that perhaps it were best to strike a light, seeing that we were so wide awake; and besides he felt a strong desire to have a few quiet puffs from his Tomahawk. Be it said, that though I had felt such a strong repugnance to his smoking in the bed the night before, yet see how elastic our stiff prejudices grow when love once comes to bend them. For now I liked nothing better than to have Queequeg smoking by me, even in bed, because he seemed to be full of such serene household joy then, as if we were a long-married couple. I no more felt unduly concerned for the landlord's policy of insurance. I was only alive to the condensed confidential comfortableness of sharing a pipe and a blanket with a real friend. With our shaggy jackets drawn about our shoulders, we now passed the Tomahawk from one to the other, till slowly there grew over us a blue hanging tester of smoke, illuminated by the flame of the new-lit lamp and an odor redulant of smoldering hemp.

    Time for that great old song, "I'll Give You a Dachsie a Day, Dear"

    A Dachsie a Day

    He remembers the first time he met her
    He remembers the first thing she said
    He remembers the first time he sniffed her behind
    And the night they sneaked under Dad's bed

    He remembers her sweet way of waggin' her tail
    Sayin' "Honey, has somethin' gone wrong?"
    He remembers the fun knockin' garbage cans over
    And the reason he wrote her this song

    I'll give you a Dachsie a day, dear
    I'll give you a Dachsie a day
    I'll love you until the rivers run still
    And the four winds we know blow away

    They would trot down the street in the evenin'
    And for years I would see them go by
    And their love that was more than the dog tags they wore
    Could be seen in the gleam of their eyes

    As a kid they would take me grave robbin'
    And I loved to go taggin' along
    We'd find road kill to roll in and shit to disturb
    And the old dog would sing her his song

    I'll give you a Dachsie a day, dear
    I'll give you a Dachsie a day
    I'll love you until the rivers run still
    And the four winds we know blow away

    Now he walks down the street in the evenin'
    And he stops by the old butcher store
    And I somehow believe he's believin'
    That they're sharin' a sausage once more

    For he feels like she's walkin' beside him
    And he smiles at the things she might say
    Then the old dog walks up to the hydrant and pees
    And he gives her a Dachsie a day

    I'll give you a Dachsie a day, dear
    I'll give you a Dachsie a day
    I'll love you until the rivers run still
    And the four winds we know blow away


    Oh, and here's the human version:

    A Daisy A Day

    Well, well, well....seems he is doing much better! He did four hours on the trach mask, for his first time which met their goal. He got a little anxious and muscos-ey, but the respiratory therapist was so pleased, s/he wants to speed up the weaning. Karen thinks by next week, they should be able to cap the trach. He is still extremely weak, balance is gone, and he's a bit bewildered by just how much, but Karen tells him he will work through it, it's just going to take more time, this time.

    He ate REAL food, yesterday...tuna tettrazini. If he keeps that up, they will be able to take out the feeding tube.

    Karen is so excited and grateful to everyone. Dan, she says, "Yes please!" to skype, after I explained it to her. I do have a card addy, now:

    Please PM me for the address.

    Laughter IS the best medicine, but if you've had some surgeries, it can really hurt. Remind me - what originally put Pat in the hospital? Is it something that laughter will hurt or harm?

    I came home after cancer surgery in 2000 and thought I'd try that "laughter" therapy and turned on reruns from a couple of television programs I'd always liked. Frasier and The Golden Girls were remarkably funny, and I would have to hold my stomach to laugh. So it doesn't need to be just movies.

    But if you're talking funny movies, over the holidays I put the National Lampoon christmas vacation movie in and my ex and my daughter's boyfriend apparently had never seen it. They were like deer in the headlights, with regular bursts of laughter. And the one that really made them squirm was Peter Sellers in Being There.

    All this talk of denizens of the brine made me think of Michael Smith:

    You have hundreds of miles to go says I
    Take this fish to the land of the Finn
    For the Finn woman knows more than I do so fly
    To the land the blue fireworks burn in
    Schlep this fish child
    Across the wild tundra tonight
    While a pitiless pale moon above
    Shines on me lighting whale oil
    And sitting at table
    And dreaming of someone to love
    For though reams of Lapland laddies urgin' mergin'
    Would send me little paper love notes of intent
    No one could make me consent to dent my virginhood
    Like someone venting sentimental on a sturgeon would
    And though I'm just a girl from God knows where
    Still I'm a dreamer too
    I've got a fantasy I'd love to share
    With each and every one of you

    For sometime now I've had this secret wish
    Someone would send me a love letter on a fish
    For a fish and a love letter
    Just seem to go together
    The sooner I get my fish wish
    The better I would say
    Someone could start out
    To pour his heart out on a trout
    I'd read and sigh and then I'd fry it my delish
    Even when the weather's sunny
    And it makes the mailbox smell real funny
    Send me a love letter on a fish

    Oh I would love to hear from you on one condish
    That when you pitch your woo you pitch it on a fish
    It would give me such a thrill
    To read I love you on each gill
    Or darlin' on a marlin
    Things profounder on a flounder
    If you'd fain complete your pass
    Don't be crass employ a bass
    Yeah use that shad for a pad oh I insish
    Ten million postcards on a school
    Holy mackerel Batman cool
    Send me a love letter on a fish

    Send me a love letter darlin
    Send me a love letter on a fish
    Show me that you like me
    Tuna melt me smelt me pike me
    Send me a love letter on a fish
    If you think I'm super
    Say it with a grouper
    When you're mushy on a sushi I'm in blish
    If you want a date
    Get out your Papermate and
    Decorate a skate
    Send me a love letter on a fish

    I wonder why do I find it so romantic
    That your stationery hails from mid-Atlantic
    Why billets-doux upon some shrimp
    Can make this lady's knees go limp
    Wanna kiss me in the dark
    Forty-one cents and a shark
    Send me some real postal scales just for the halibut
    Don't leave me languishing on ice like Lillian Gish
    What I'm sharing here is show your caring
    On a herring from the Bering
    Send me a love letter on a fish
    And though most ladies that you know would go oh ish
    Send me a love letter
    Don't use an Irish setter
    Send me a love letter on a fish
    And seal it with a kish

    I may wind up in hospital myself in a few days if the newer, better, stronger, meaner antibiotic doesn't turn me from Pumpkinhead back to normal. I think it will so I'll try and say high in food threads.

    Tell him I have a newish cat whose name is Holly and we named her that because when we found her as a kitten she was surviving but hunting and eating Crickets. He should get the joke whilst those under 40 usually look at me sideways like a puppy who has hear a high pitched noise.

    Not for a while, yet, Bruce. He will be at the acute rehab at least three weeks, then rehab where he will learn how to walk again, get his balance back, eat solid food, etc. Long ways to go, yet.

    This machine belongs to Spaw but what I am going to try and do is see if I can get some other notebooks. I was thinking too many of our friends are crashing lately and doing long hospital or rehab stays. It would be nice to have some backup notebooks that we could lend people while they are recovering. Kinda like a library loan. I am not doing it with this machine as it belongs to Spaw but I will try to do something along those lines in the future. Notebooks are expensive and many of our friends don't have access to one when they end up doing the jail time in the hospital. Plus we are all aging sadly and the health problems that go with it are starting to surface way too often here.

    My university library has laptops for 24-hour loan and they're out all of the time. Even being able to borrow them occasionally for that long period can make work a lot easier. Good idea, Dan!

    We have a software they use to "wipe" data and reset the computers each time they're returned so data doesn't get left behind, etc.

    Take care, Pat! Sounds like they're going to make you do some work, but as long as you remember to wear a bathrobe that hospital gown shouldn't be too drafty as you're wandering the halls. I'd think twice about Rapaire's bean and cheese burritos - you don't need to launch yourself on a trajectory following Janie's moonbeams. :)

    BillD...beautiful, awesome!

    And, now, may I have a drum roll?

    Just after lunch, my cell rang and I heard a familiar voice..sounding stronger than I expected. It was Spaw himself!! He sounded strong because he was using a device over the trach hole. He didn't last for very long...got worn out and the docs came in, so we had to say goodbye, but it was so good to just hear him. Definitely on the mend, slow, very slow, but still in the right direction. He thinks he may be out of that place by the end of next week on to the next as this one is geared towards medical rehab and he's now almost ready for mostly physical rehab. Karen will catch me up on that later.

    My cell phone quality is not the best, so I missed a lot of what he said, but I know he has been around the room with a walker. Also, he got a little anxious and asked me to let you all know that it may be quite awhile before he gets back on here; he mentioned the amount of energy it takes. I told him he is not to feel ANY pressure from us that we're all here holding the fort, etc. NOT to worry about it. I told him the laptop was for mp3 listening, movie watching, and talking with his family via skype. I think I may have blown it. I thought Karen had already told him about it, but he obviously was "gobsmacked" when he asked me to repeat what I'd said about what you are doing, Dan. And, you, Rapparee. I'll have to tell Karen sorry. She said she'd call me later tonight. Since the docs were there I am guessing I'll have more news about all of that, too.

    Phew! My heart is a lot happier, now. Lots of Thanks givings being sent up!

    My wife is having one, and possibly a bilateral, lumpectomy on February 1. This is quite unfair because she's already had thyroid cancer (half a century back, when she was 17). She does NOT want long faces, doleful expressions, and "you're gonna die!" attitudes around her -- not the first time and not now. She wants smiles and laughs and brownies with icing. I suspect Spaw feels the same.

    before people get hurt,

    I would point out that the motivation of evry poster in this thread is a desire and hope to see Spaw get better, that means Kat, Olddude, Raparee etc

    So if someone gets uncomfoprtable, they are only sqaying so because they want the best for spaw, and if they push the boundaries of humour, again, they are only doing it because they want the best for spaw.

    None of us have to change, just be understanding of each other (not the same as understanding each other - I might not understand, but I can still be understanding)

    So admire each other for trying to achieve the same positive ends, even if it is in a different way to the way we believe is best.

    all the best to you all folks.

    Dan,

    My apologies if I hurt your feelings and the rest of you, too. That last remark was with tongue in cheek...I should have included my usual caveat "**BG**, because that's how I meant it. Please don't leave because of me. You are one of the bestest, kindest of us all and I know Pat means a lot to you. He might think I have shit for brains and my Pollyanna front is just that because I am only a runner-up to Father Joe-Bro, and he might be right, but I am not worth losing your darlin' self, so please come back!

    On to how the heck is he. In a word: "Grumpy" according to Karen. She was visiting when I called. She said he bitched for over an hour so she knows he is on the mend. I know you'll all be glad to hear the bum plug is gone.:-)

    He will most likely move by the end of next week to one of two rehab facilities. They both sound good, but one he will be evaluated for with Ohio State sounds better. He still has the feeding tube as they are still doing one night feeding and restricting his diet. His sodium is low, for some reason. As soon as they get him going better on that and eating more real food, he'll lose that tube, too.

    He did 18 hours with the CPAP last night, so he's ready for more weaning from the trach. They will probably do that completely by next week, leaving a small hole with a plug for awhile.

    He spoke with me a little bit, but it's really noisy and hard for him to hear on the phone. He asked me to tell you all Thank you and that this one "really took a big chunk" out of him, both literally and otherwise. He's talking about end of February to get home when he's actually wanting to be there, very badly, now. He's missing his pets, being home, etc. I reminded Karen some places allow pet visits. She said one of the rehab places does as she'd asked.

    The laptop will help tremendously, Dan. Rapparee, the headphones got there. He and Karen both realise they don't know ho to use them, but they will figure it out. They are both excited about it and very grateful to you both and to the rest of us.

    That's it for now, folks.

    kat

    Kat, like many people here (I'm sure), I'm watching this thread carefully to keep up with how Grumpy is doing and I'm glad to see that he is doing so well. I expect that there are 10 reading for every one commenting. HOWEVER, I still think that it's unfortunate that you started a second thread and closed out the first one - by now he'd have his very own 1000-message "get well soon" thread! I really think you should join the two and send him a print-out when he gets home.

    ...The hatch, removed from the top of the works, now afforded a wide hearth in front of them. Standing on this were the Tartarean shapes of the pagan harpooneers, always the whale-ship's stokers. With huge pronged poles they pitched hissing masses of landlubber into the scalding pots, or stirred up the fires beneath, till the snaky flames darted, curling, out of the doors to catch them by the feet and other parts, and when they fell, as they must, their comrades would jab them with the pronged poles and toss them into the pots. The smoke rolled away in sullen heaps. To every pitch of the ship there was a pitch of the boiling oil, which seemed all eagerness to leap into their faces. Opposite the mouth of the works, on the further side of the wide wooden hearth, was a winded lass. This young thing served for a sea-sofa. With her lounged the watch, when not otherwise employed, looking into the red heat of the fire, till their eyes felt scorched in their heads. Their tawny features, now all begrimed with smoke and sweat, their matted beards, and the contrasting barbaric brilliancy of their teeth, all these were strangely revealed in the capricious emblazonings of the works. As they narrated to her and to each other their unholy adventures, their tales of terror told in words of mirth; as their uncivilized laughter forked upwards out of them, like the flames from the furnace; as to and fro, in their front, the harpooneers wildly gesticulated with their huge pronged forks and dippers; as the wind howled on, and the sea leaped, and the ship groaned and dived, and yet steadfastly shot her red hell further and further into the blackness of the sea and the night, and scornfully champed the white bone in her mouth, and viciously spat round her on all sides; then the rushing Pequod, freighted with savages, and laden with fire, and burning corpses, and plunging into that blackness of darkness, seemed the material counterpart of her monomaniac commander's soul, while upon the sea sofa the winded lass made much money.

    Yeah, but the NFL and the other major leagues have divided Ohio in half. The line goes right through Columbus -- through some dorms at Ohio State, in fact, and has even divided homes. North of the line you back the Cleveland teams, south of the line you back Cincinnati (there are some outcasts on both sides who back the Cubs, but they are considered unclean). Spaw LIVES south of the line.

    ...You may have seen many a quaint craft in your day, for aught I know; - squared-toed luggers; mountainous Japanese junks; butter-box galliots; nuclear submarines; log rafts; and what not; but take my word for it, you never saw such a rare old craft as this same rare old Pequod. She was a ship of the old school, rather small if anything; with an old fashioned claw-footed bathtub look about her and hatch-covers stained with the blood shed in ancient floggings. Long seasoned and weather-stained in the typhoons and calms of all four oceans, her old hull's complexion was darkened like a French grenadier's camp-follower, who has alike fought in both peignoir and boudoir. Her venerable bows looked bearded, like a goat or a tree bedecked with Spanish moss, but it was but a fungus. Her masts - cut somewhere on the coast of Japan and made of bamboo, where her original ones were clumsily lost overboard in a gale or sold as lumber by the mate - her masts stood stiffly up like the spines of the three old kings of Cologne. Her ancient decks were worn and wrinkled, rotted through here and there, like the pilgrim-worshipped flag-stone in Canterbury Cathedral where Beckett bled. But to all these her old antiquities, were added new and marvellous features, pertaining to the wild business that for more than half a century she had followed. Old Captain Peeleg, many years her chief-mate, before he commanded another vessel of his own, and now a retired semen, and one of the principal owners of the Pequod, - this old Peeleg, during the term of his chief-mateship, had built upon her original grotesqueness, and inlaid it, all over, with a quaintness both of material and device, unmatched by anything except it be Thorkill-Hake's carved buckler or bedstead or the figurehead of a garbage scow. She was apparelled like any barbaric Ethiopian emperor, his neck heavy with pendants of polished ivory. She was a thing of trophies and odors of old, foul and unspeakable evils. A cannibal of a craft, tricking herself forth in the chased bones of her enemies. All round, her unpanelled, open bulwarks were garnished like one continuous jaw, old and missing many teeth, with the long sharp teeth of the Sperm Whale, inserted there for pins, to fasten her old hempen thews and tendons to. Those thews ran not through base blocks of land wood, but deftly travelled over sheaves of sea-ivory and dried whale pizzle. Scorning a turnstile wheel at her reverend helm, she sported there a tiller; and that tiller was in one mass, curiously carved from the long narrow lower jaw of her hereditary foe. The helmsman who steered by that tiller in a tempest, felt like the Tartar, when he holds back his fiery steed by clutching its jaw, his hand bitten and bleeding. A noble craft, but somehow a most melancholy! All noble things are touched with that, save of course my own self and my dear friend Queequeg.

    Janie, Janie, Janie.

    There are no 'innings' in FOOTball! There are QUARTERS, and they FLIP them to see who gets to get stompled first, and then there's HALFtime, when Justin TImberlake takes off Janet Jackson's clothes, and they wear really tight pants and almost NEVER talk about 'outings'.

    In college my NFL cheerleader daughter once signed up for the Women's Rugby team. All 101 lbs of her ... thankfully that was a passing fancy and she was in it for about 5 minutes LOL ... Now it is Ironman ... it is really difficult for a dad to have girl jocks in the family ... ya never stop beating your head against the wall wondering when the next injury will occur.

    Now if we can get some Rugby guys to haul Spaw outta that place, life will be good again. Here that Spaw, the Rugby guys are going to come a knocking

    I just spoke with Karen - Spaw has been texting her - something she's very happy about as he hasn't been doing that for a while. She is very excited about the laptop - while Spaw doesn't show any signs of wanting to use one right now she thinks that, when it's there, he'll not be able to resist coming on line. Watch out world!

    It's likely that his trach will be coming out before too long - they've turned it down some already. He has the catheter out and is walking down the hall. She says that he is doing much better although he is still very weak, but is getting stronger every day. They are hoping that he will go for rehab at Ohio State - a very aggressive rehab centre.

    He wants to go home - he says that he is worried that his cat will forget him. Karen says no chance, she wants him home to get the cat off her - she can't give it enough attention.

    Both boys are doing very well and have said that they will be there whenever needed when Spaw is finally allowed home.

Dave shipped it ground since he included a crap load of stuff that Spaw really doesn't need or will use. One very big box including an external monitor, external keyboard, docking station, external mouse etc... I just needed the notebook ... I may need to reformat and load windows 7 for him. Will overnight it to him once i am done. I saw the specs on the machine, it is a beauty

He is hoping anyway. It was just so good to hear him and know he is getting stronger and moving around again. He is feeling much better, he was doing some coughing and it scared me a moment then said they want him to do that. All in all sounding very good indeed.

    Well, actually a gun store mailed it to another gun store with all the proper paperwork and shipping and stuff. He's a nice enough guy, but I'm not willing to go to jail for him. I'm too pretty for that.

    old dude,
    The weather along the east coast has been horrendous. Even if UPS wanted to ship your package, half their employees never made it to work and most of the planes never made it into to Boston to load.
    I am not a big UPS fan but my company is having the same delays and our customers are less than thrilled.

    Things shipped in boxes that reflect the contents can be more vulnerable to the "five finger discount" in areas where security isn't so good. I have had things go missing from warehouses when they were in boxes labeled "NewEgg," etc.

    Hey, Vinnie brings him a Sterling M34A1 with a coupla full magazines and a pair of pants. Spaw shoots his way out, and since it's suppressed he doesn't even disturb the other patients. Outside a snatch harness pulls him into a helicopter or a C-130 and he's outa there. Hell, Vinnie would do it just for fun, but his Uncle Carlo might want a "tip" for making the arrangements with the Ohio Air National Guard so the rescuing aircraft ain't shot down.

    ...During all this blackness of the elements, Ahab, though assuming for the time the almost continual command of the drenched and dangerous deck, manifested the gloomiest reserve; and more seldom than ever addressed his mates, not even warning them when waves tore them from their stations and carried them away to be lost forever in the Southern ocean. In tempestuous times like these, after everything above and aloft has been secured, nothing more can be done but passively to await the issue of the gale with the insecurity of those below. Then Captain and crew become practical fatalists. So, with his ivory peg inserted into its accustomed hole, and with one hand firmly grasping his shroud, Ahab for hours and hours would stand gazing dead to windward, while an occasional squall of sleet or snow would all but congeal his very eyelashes together, his meditations only occasionally broken by inserting his ivory peg into the cabin-boy. Meantime, the crew driven from the forward part of the ship by the perilous seas that burstingly broke over its bows, stood in a line along the bulwarks in the waist; and the better to guard against the leaping waves, each man had slipped himself into a sort of bowline secured to the rail, in which he swung as in a loosened belt, each awaiting the cabin-boy. Few or no words were spoken; and the silent ship, manned by painted sailors in drag, day after day tore on through all the swift madness and gladness of the demoniac waves. By night the same muteness of humanity before the shrieks of the ocean prevailed; still in silence the men swung in the bowlines; still wordless Ahab stood up to the blast, still silent the cabin-boy was passed from each to each. Even when wearied nature seemed demanding repose he would not seek that repose in his hammock, but heaving upon the heaving deck. Never could Starbuck forget the old man's aspect, when one night going down into the cabin to mark how the barometer stood, he saw him with closed eyes laying flat on his floor, his screwed chair tossed aside; the moisture of the emotional storm from which he had some time before emerged, still slowly dripping from the unremoved hat and coat. On the table beside him lay unrolled one of those charts of tides and currents and drawings of naughty mermaids which have previously been spoken of. His ivory peg swung from his tightly clenched hand. Though the body was erect, the head was thrown back so that the closed eyes were pointed towards the needle of the tell-tale that swung, along with the cabin-boy, from a beam in the ceiling.

    ...Over his ivory-inlaid table, Ahab hovered like a mute, maniac sea-lion on the white coral beach, surrounded by his wart-like but still deferential cubs. In his own proper turn, each officer waited to be served. They were as little children before Ahab; and yet, in Ahab, there seemed not to lurk the smallest social grace. With one mind, their intent eyes all fastened upon the old man's knife, as he carved the chief dish before him, the cabin-boy, roasted to a turn and with an apple in his mouth. I do not suppose that for the world they would have profaned that moment with the slightest observation, even upon so neutral a topic as the weather. No! And when reaching out his knife and fork, between which the slice of sea-beef was locked, Ahab thereby motioned Starbuck's plate towards him, the mate received his meat as though receiving alms; and cut it as tenderly as once he had held it to his bosom; and a little started if, perchance, the knife grazed against the plate; and chewed it noiselessly; and swallowed it, not without circumspection and without sauce. For, like the Coronation banquet at Frankfort, where the German Emperor profoundly dines with the seven Imperial Electors, so these cabin meals were somehow solemn meals, eaten in awful silence; and yet at table old Ahab forbade not conversation; because only he himself was dumber than the heads in the bows of the Pequod. What a relief it was to choking Stubb, when a rat made a sudden racket in the hold below, giving promise of different food at a different time. And poor little Flask, he was the youngest son, and little boy of this weary family party. His were the shinbones of the saline beef; his would have been the drumsticks. For Flask to have presumed to help himself, this must have seemed to him tantamount to larceny in the first degree. Had he helped himself up onto that table, doubtless, never more would he have been able to hold his head up in this honest world; nevertheless, strange to say, Ahab never forbade him. And had Flask helped himself, the chances were Ahab had never so much as noticed it. Least of all, did flask presume to help himself to butter. Whether he thought the owners of the ship denied it to him, on account of its clotting his clear, sunny complexion; or whether he deemed that, on so long a voyage in such marketless waters, butter was at a premium, and therefore was not for him, a subaltern; however it was, Flask, alas! was a butterless man, never to indulge in the delights of even one hot ruttered bum!

    I talked to Karen just now. Spaw will be going HOME, most likely by the end of the week. Rather than going to a residential rehab they are looking to getting him to a daily unit for the work he needs.

    He has said that he would prefer to spend a couple of extra days in the hospital right now - I would think to make sure that he doesn't have to turn round and go right back in.

    Karen and Tris have been making sure that home is set up for him, moving furniture to make it easier to move around etc. Karen will take a few days off once he's home - she's already warned work that this will be happening. Tris said that he would also take a few days off, Karen put paid to that idea and confirmed that he would be going to school! Nice try anyway Tris.

    Spaw is coughing quite a lot at the moment, which is disturbing his sleep, but Karen has asked me to tell you all that the old Spaw is back! Now that is REALLY good news.

    He hasn't had a chance to read any of the thread yet so will probably be kept occupied, if not quiet, while he reads it all.

    ..."Ka-loo! Ka-lay!" chortled Queequeg, as if smacking his lips over a mouthful of tube steak. And thus with oars and yells the keels cut the sea. Meanwhile, Stubb retaining his place in the van back in the parking lot, still encouraged his men to the onset, all the while puffing the smoke from his mouth. Like desperadoes they tugged and they strained, till the welcome cry was heard - "Stand up, Tashtego! - give it to him!" The harpoon was hurled. "Stern all!" The oarsmen made water; the same moment something went hot and hissing along every one of their wrists and down their pants-legs. It was the magical line: Do you come here often? An instant before, Stubb had swiftly caught two additional turns with it round the loggerhead, whence, by reason of its increased rapid circlings, a hempen blue smoke now jetted up and mingled with the steady hempen fumes from his pipe. As the line passed round and round the loggerhead; so also, just before reaching that point, it blisteringly passed through and through both of Stubb's hands, from which the hand-cloths, or squares of quilted canvas sometimes worn at these times, had accidentally dropped, leaving Stubb with a stigmata difficult to explain to OSHA. It was like holding an enemy's sharp two- edged sword by the blade, and that enemy all the time striving to wrest it out of your clutch so that this enemy could become the True Transmission King Of England.

Unterdessen Stubb, das zurück seinen Platz im Packwagen im Parkplatz, noch angeregt seinen Männern zum Anfang, währenddessen luftstoßend der Rauch von seinem Mund behält. Wie Desperados zerrten sie und sie belasteten, bis der willkommene Schrei gehört wurde - " Fastfood-, Tashtego! - geben Sie es ihm! " Die Harpune wurde geschleudert. " Heck alles! " Die Oarsmen bildeten Wasser; der gleiche Moment ging etwas heiß zischend und entlang jedem ihrer Handgelenke und wirft ihre Hosebeine nieder. Es war die magische Linie: Kommen Sie häufig her? Ein Augenblick vor, hatte Stubb schnell sich zwei zusätzliche Umdrehungen mit ihm ringsum den Dummkopf verfangen, woher, aufgrund seiner erhöhten schnellen circlings, ein hempen blauer Rauch jetzt oben spritzte und mit den unveränderlichen hempen Dämpfen von seinem Rohr sich vermischte. Wie die Linie rundes und rundes der Dummkopf führte; so auch, kurz vor dem Erreichen dieses Punktes, überschritt sie blisteringly durch und durch beide von Stubb' von denen s-Hände, die Handtücher oder von den Quadraten des gesteppten Segeltuches, das manchmal zu diesen Zeiten getragen wurde, versehentlich gefallen waren, Stubb mit die Schanden lassend schwierig, OSHA zu erklären. Er war wie das Halten eines enemy' s-scharfe zweischneidige Klinge durch das Blatt und dieser Feind ständig, der sich bemüht, es aus Ihrer Kupplung heraus zu entreißen, damit dieser Feind der zutreffende Getriebe-König von England werden konnte.

    Wie anderwohin geschrieben worden ist,

    Das meiste weiß man über Walther aus seinen Werken. Fragen zu seiner Biographie sind vor allem dann wichtig, wenn sie die Dichtungen verstehen helfen. Dazu gehören nicht die Diskussionen, wo Walther geboren wurde oder wo er begraben liegt. Lokalpatrioten interessieren sich dennoch dafür, um Walther vielleicht in ihrer Heimat ansiedeln zu können.

    Das „Ich" einer Dichtung ist sehr oft nicht mit dem Dichter identisch. In Liebeslyrik wird dieses „Ich" meist als „lyrisches Ich" bezeichnet, wenn es sich um Stimmungslyrik handelt. Es berichtet dem Publikum von einem Liebeserlebnis. Wenn eine erzählende (kurzepische) Haltung vorwiegt, spricht man vom Sänger. Jedenfalls ist es eine fiktive literarische Figur, keine autobiographische Äußerung des Dichters.

    In politischer Dichtung und Auseinandersetzungen mit literarischen und sonstigen Feinden des Autors hat das ‚Ich' große autobiographische Anteile, ist aber trotzdem literarisch stilisiert. Für heutige Leser ist noch schwerer erkennbar als für die Zeitgenossen, wo die Grenzen zwischen autobiographischen Anteilen und Fiktion liegen. Da es außer den oben genannten und seinen eigenen Gedichten keine Quellen über Walther gibt, hat das Walther-Bild notgedrungen unhistorische Anteile.

    Insbesondere die Chronologie der Werke steht nur dort auf sicherem Boden, wo politische Ereignisse eindeutig angesprochen werden (zum Beispiel die Krönung oder der Tod eines bestimmten Fürsten; identifizierbare Reichstage). Lieder, die die Stimmung eines alten Mannes wiedergeben, reiht man üblicherweise unter Walthers Altersdichtung ein, obwohl auch ein jüngerer Dichter in die „Maske" eines alten Mannes schlüpfen könnte, usw. Eine derartige Aussage ist als – wertvolle – Aussage über die Stimmung, die das Lied im Publikum erweckt, zu verstehen; kaum ist sie Hilfsmittel zu absoluter Datierung. Allerdings zeigt die datierbare politische Altersdichtung Walthers einige Stilzüge, die auch in anderen Liedern auftreten, die man gerne seiner Altersdichtung zuordnen würde, so dass vieles der unten gewählten zeitlichen Strukturierung auch der Minnelyrik zwar unbeweisbar und im Detail umstritten, aber nicht unsinnig ist.


    Verbessern Sie meinen eigenen Vorfahr, Ludwig Windthorst, wer Otto von Bismarck erklärte, zur Hölle zu gehen.

    ...Daz ist beir mir læger,
    wezeheizen,
    (nu enwelle got!), so schamte ich Michigan.
    Wes er mit mir pfeiffer,
    niemer niemen

    ...Concerning all this, it is much to be deplored that the mast-heads of a southern whale ship are unprovided with those enviable little tents or pulpits, called crow's-nests, in which the lookouts of a Greenland whaler are protected from the inclement weather of the frozen seas, most especially when the call of nature sounds. The fire-side narrative of Captain Sleet, entitled "A Voyage among the Icebergs, in quest of the Greenland Whale, and incidentally for the re-discovery of the Lost Icelandic Colonies of Old Greenland;" in this admirable volume, this tome of perspicacity, this penned gift, this folio of divine guidance, he tell how all standers of mast-heads are furnished with a charmingly circumstantial account of the then recently invented crow's-nest of the Glacier, which was the name of Captain Sleet's good craft, his ship, his home upon the waves. He called it the Sleet's crow's-nest, in honor of himself; he being the original inventor and patentee, and free from all ridiculous false delicacy, and holding that if we call our own children after our own names (we fathers being the original inventors and patentees), so likewise should we denominate after ourselves any other apparatus we may beget upon any person, thing, or place whatsoever. In shape, the Sleet's crow's-nest is something like a large tierce or pipe; it is open above, however, where it is furnished with a movable side-screen to keep to windward of your head in a hard gale. Being fixed on the summit of the mast, you ascend into it through a little trap-hatch in the bottom, always calling first, as this is also the channel by which the aforesaid calls of nature are completed. On the after side, or side next the stern of the ship, is a comfortable seat, with a locker underneath for umbrellas, parasols, comforters, shawls, knitting, and coats. In front is a leather rack, in which to keep your speaking trumpet, pipe, telescope, and other nautical and musical conveniences. When Captain Sleet in person stood his mast-head in this crow's nest of his, he tells us that he always had a rifle with him (also fixed in the rack), together with a powder flask and shot, for the purpose of popping off the stray Narwhales, or vagrant sea unicorns infesting those waters; assorted loafing crew members, and rats for dinner; for you cannot successfully shoot at them from the deck owing to the resistance of the water, but to shoot down upon them is a very different thing. Now, it was plainly a labor of love for Captain Sleet to describe, as he does, all the little detailed conveniences of his crow's-nest; but though he so enlarges upon many of these, and though he treats us to a very scientific account of his experiments in this crow's-nest, with a small compass he kept there for the purpose of counteracting the errors resulting from what is called the "local attraction" of all binnacle magnets; an error ascribable to the horizontal vicinity of the iron in the ship's planks, and in the Glacier's case, perhaps, to there having been so many broken-down blacksmiths among her crew; I say, that though the Captain is very discreet and scientific here, yet, for all his learned "binnacle deviations," "azimuth compass observations," and "approximate errors," he knows very well, Captain Sleet, that he was not so much immersed in those profound magnetic meditations, as to fail being attracted occasionally towards that well replenished little case-bottle, so nicely tucked in on one side of his crow's nest, within easy reach of his hand. Though, upon the whole, I greatly admire and even love the brave, the honest, and learned Captain; yet I take it very ill of him that he should so utterly ignore that case-bottle, seeing what a faithful friend and comforter it must have been, while with mittened fingers and hooded head he was studying the mathematics aloft there in that bird's nest within three or four perches of the pole and indeed finding that upon at least six occasions his magnetic deviations were perpendicular to the keel of his ship.

    ...During my researches in the leviathanic histories, I stumbled upon an ancient Dutch volume, which, by the musty whaling smell of it, I knew must be about whalers or whales or perhaps about dachshunds or a whaler's crew after a long voyage. The title was, "Dan Coopman", wherefore I concluded that this must be the invaluable memoirs of some Amsterdam cooper in the fishery, as every whale ship must carry its cooper, many of whom have long since flown the coop. I was reinforced in this opinion by seeing that it was the production of one "Fitz Swackhammer". But my friend Dr. Snothead, a very learned man, professor of Low Dutch and High German, or perhaps High Dutch and Low German, in the college of Santa Claus and St. Pott's, to whom I handed the work for translation, giving him a box of sperm for his trouble - this same Dr. Snothead, so soon as he spied the book, assured me that "Dan Coopman" did not mean "The Cooper", but "The Merchant". In short, this ancient and learned Low Dutch book treated of the commerce of Holland and other low subjects of the Low Lands; and, among other subjects, contained a very interesting account of its whale fishery. And in this chapter it was, headed "Smeer", or "Fat", that I found a long detailed list of the outfits for the larders and cellars and basements and butlers' pantries of 180 sail of Dutch whalemen; from which list, as translated by Dr. Snothead. I transcribe the following: 400,000 lbs. of beef. 60,000 lbs. Friesland pork. 150,000 lbs. of stock fish. 550,000 lbs. of biscuit. 72,000 lbs. of soft bread. 2,800 firkins of firkin butter. 20,000 lbs. of Texel and Leyden cheese, put up in Leyden jars. 144,000 lbs. cheese (probably an inferior article, perhaps the cheese of Limburg). 550 ankers of Geneva. 10,800 barrels of beer. 174,000 lbs. of wood shavings, to provide fiber for the diet. 8,000 hogshead of claret. 2,900 barrels of fine brandy or cognac. 18,000 kilts, of the best Scottish plaid. 250,000 gross of gutta-percha coats for the members of the members of the crew. 7,200 firkin knives for the firkin firkins of firkin butter.

    I don't think they had room for whales. I think it was kinda like when my brothers and I go deer hunting: we have a good time, but the hunting part just means hauling them out of the woods, cleaning them, having the butchered and all that. Far easier to tell stories than to actually hunt the things.

    ...The harpoon was darted; the stricken whale flew forward; with igniting velocity the line ran through the groove; - ran foul even as it set upon the very boat, being as it was near the petrol tanks. Ahab stooped to clear it; he did clear it; but the flying turd caught him round the neck, and voicelessly as Turkish mutes bowstring their victim, he was shot out of the boat, ere the crew knew he was gone. Next instant, the heavy eye-splice in the rope's final end flew out of the stark-empty tub, knocked down an oarsman, and smiting the sea, disappeared in its depths.

    For an instant, the tranced boat's crew stood cheering and applauding and voicing their approval; then turned. "The ship? Great God, where is the ship?" Soon they through dim, bewildering mediums saw her sidelong fading phantom, as in the gaseous Fata Morgana or something similar, I know not what; only the uppermost masts out of water; while fixed by infatuation, or fidelity, or fate, to their once lofty perches, the pagan harpooneers still maintained their sinking lookouts on the sea. And now, concentric circles seized the lone boat itself, and all its crew, and each floating oar, and every lance-pole, and spinning, animate and inanimate, all round and round in one vortex, carried the smallest chip of the Pequod out of sight and down the drain from which Ahab had so recently removed the plug.

    But as the last whelmings intermixingly poured themselves over the shrunken head of the Indian at the mainmast, leaving a few inches of the erect spar yet visible, together with long streaming yards of the flag, which calmly undulated, with ironical coincidings, over the destroying billions of billows they almost touched; - at that instant, a red arm and a sickle and hammer hovered backwardly uplifted in the open air, in the act of nailing the flag flag of rebellion faster and yet faster to the subsiding spar. A sky-hawk that tauntingly had followed the main-truck downwards from its natural home among the stars, pecking at the flag, and incommoding Tashtego there; this bird now chanced to intercept its broad fluttering wing between the hammer and the wood; and simultaneously feeling that etherial thrill, the submerged savage beneath, in his death-gasp, kept his hammer frozen there; and so the bird of heaven, with archangelic shrieks and curses and obscenities too awful to repeat, and his imperial middle feather thrust upwards, and his whole captive form folded in the flag of Ahab, went down with his ship, which, like Satan, would not sink to hell till she had dragged a living part of heaven along with her, and helmeted herself with it, even though I have no idea of what that means.

    Now small fowls that maken melody flew screaming over the yet yawning gulf; a sullen white surf beat against its steep sides; then all collapsed, and the great shroud of the sea rolled on as it rolled five thousand years ago, but in truth longer, for as I said earlier, there is, one knows not what sweet mystery about this sea, whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath, or perhaps God's own spatula; like those fabled undulations of the Ephesian sod over the buried Evangelist St. John. And meet it is, that over these sea-pastures, wide-rolling watery prairies and Potters' Fields of all four continents, the waves should rise and fall, and ebb and flow unceasingly; for here, millions of mixed shades and shadows, drowned dreams, somnambulisms, reveries; all that we call lives and souls, lie dreaming, dreaming, still; tossing like slumberers in their beds; the ever-rolling waves but made so by their restlessness and the discharges from the head of Pequod. To any meditative Magian rover, this serene Pacific, once beheld, must ever after be the sea of his adoption, his home, his very soul. It rolls the midmost waters of the world, the Indian ocean and Atlantic being but its arms. The same waves wash the malignant moles of the new-built Californian towns, but yesterday planted by the recentest race of men, and lave the faded but still gorgeous skirts of Asiatic lands, older than Abraham; while all between float milky-ways of coral isles, and low-lying, endless, unknown Archipelagoes, and impenetrable Japans, and watching this water roll and roll again makes one wish to make water with it, and so one does, especially Peeleg. Thus this mysterious, divine Pacific zones the world's whole bulk about; makes all coasts one bay to it; seems the tide-beating heart of earth. Lifted by those eternal swells, you needs must own the seductive god, bowing your head to Peter Pan and his mistress Tinkerbell. As I said before. In the meantime, everyone, including me, was dead.

    The African nation's justice ministry says the proposed legislation is part of a wider campaign to "mould responsible and disciplined citizens".

    Well Spaw, guess you'll have to scratch Malawi off of your potential vacation destination spots:


    Malawi row over whether new law bans farting

    Two of Malawi's most senior judicial officials are arguing over whether a new bill includes a provision that outlaws breaking wind in public.

    Justice Minister George Chaponda says the new bill would criminalise flatulence to promote "public decency".

    "Just go to the toilet when you feel like farting," he told local radio.

    However, he was directly contradicted by Solicitor General Anthony Kamanga, who says the reference to "fouling the air" means pollution.

    "How any reasonable or sensible person can construe the provision to criminalising farting in public is beyond me," he said, adding that the prohibition contained in the new law has been in place since 1929.

    The Local Courts Bill, to be introduced next week reads: "Any person who vitiates the atmosphere in any place so as to make it noxious to the public to the health of persons in general dwelling or carrying on business in the neighbourhood or passing along a public way shall be guilty of a misdemeanour."

    Mr Chaponda, a trained lawyer, insists that this includes farting.

    "Would you be happy to see people farting anyhow?" he asked on the popular "Straight Talk" programme on Malawi's Capital Radio.

    He said that local chiefs would deal with any offenders.

    When asked whether it could be enforced, he said it would be similar to laws banning urinating in public.

    Well, I guess it's time to post this:

    Space Oddity (by David Bowie)

    Ground control to Major Tom
    Ground control to Major Tom
    Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
    (Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
    (Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
    (Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may God's (Blastoff) love be with you

    This is ground control to Major Tom, you've really made the grade
    And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
    Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

    This is Major Tom to ground control, I'm stepping through the door
    And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
    And the stars look very different today
    Here am I floating 'round my tin can far above the world
    Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

    Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still
    And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
    Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows
    Ground control to Major Tom, your circuits dead, there's something wrong
    Can you hear me, Major Tom?
    Can you hear me, Major Tom?
    Can you hear me, Major Tom?
    Can you...
    Here am I sitting in my tin can far above the Moon
    Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do....

He just drums himself up a near-death emergency and then he comes back and gathers in all the adulation and weepy sentiment and rolls in it like a dachshund in a new cow-pie. It's just his way of saying "Hey, muvvafuggah, wheah's da Luhuuuve????"

    He is still feeling that this last one was too close a call and the effects of such a long hospital stay and, as a result, is having trouble concentrating for a more than a few minutes so hasn't been on the 'Cat for long. He has said that he will be back when he is feeling up to it.
