I see 'Spaw is practising how to play "Happy Birthday" on the possum... or at least I think that's what he's doing......

WHAT?>

You're kidding? and it makes a better noise than my kazoo?
Well I better open up the seven star as it's a special occasion

OH BOY, A PARTY! For me?......Oh, three years, huh? Anybody need a hand with the decorations?

Maybe this crowd can sing "Happy Birthday" right; Seems any time I hear it sung at a party, everyone slows down to try to match the other people's timing, and it comes out sounding like a dirge.

Hey! Who took the last cup and didn't make more coffee!....While this is brewing, I'll slip over to the office and get some confetti from the shredder.

Thread creep warning (in the Tavern?). While on my recent sojourn on Samos it was St Stavros day so everyone called Stavros had a nameday. We were on a beach with a Dutch family who had two young children and had got to know a local fisherman who was called Stavros. When his boat beached, the parents pushed the children forward and they went up to the boat and sang "Happy Birthday" in English! Slightly surreal mix but it worked! Stavros much touched, free fish for the family, who shared a lager or two with the fisherman (not the children of course!).
Any way, party on guys!
The conga line starts over by the jello pit, pass me one of those flamingo legs, love the coating, not Col Sa**ers, more Col Parker- King Creole sauce with added sequins, guitar-pickin' good, very more-ish (Scotty Moore-ish).
Now I've got the verses, anyone want to hear me do "Last Train to San Fernando"?
You do?
Oh, you want me to take it not sing it.
Well it was worth a try, I'll add my kazoo accompanyment if Wolfgang will sing it with Bert & Steve P.

I came to make sure the decorations match my dress, um, I mean Tuxedo. Light blue with ruffles and white patent leather shoes. I volunteer to jump out of the cake, but Big Mick's gonna jump out of a giant vat of black vile stuff. Where's my tiara, um, I mean crown. This is gonna be great. Let me see if I can add a feature for the festivities.

It wasn't as hard to give birth to as it is to raise. This three year old of mine sure has a mind of her own, and a temper, sense of humor, opinion... Well, at least she's house trained.

Hey, everyone's got to kiss the catfish on their way in the door. On the lips.

Mud is thicker than black vile stuff.

Hi, alison and all. I'm not much of a drinker, but I need some distraction to raise my spirits... so I'll join this crazy party. My significant other suddenly took a job and moved to another state - this is real, not virtual, folks, - and I had to pry it out of him... he didn't have the guts to tell me about it until I sat him down and asked him what was going on. So, well, there went my tango partner.

Sing me a song, someone, I need cheering up!!

For Alice:

hope this makes you feel better not worse....

Once there was a Rogue, a Scoundral, and Scalawag;
Who by Dint of Great Effort, Much Luck, and No small Amount of Skill, Did become a Master Knight. And in the Due course of Time, He did find Himself Betrothed to the Daughter of a Wealthy and Influential Lord.

Now the Daughter, Being her Father's Favorite, Had long dreamed of a Marriage of her own choice, Not for Gold, Not for Influence, But a Marriage of the Heart; and for Love.

And the Lady did Refuse the Betrothal, as She did Not believe the Knight's Protestations of Love; Having Heard of His Reputation amongst the Ladies of the Court,...and their Maids,...and the Kitchen Wenches,... and the Washer Wenches,... and the Milk Maids,... and the Goose Girls,... and ye see the general drift of things, now do ye not?

But her Father did Insist upon the Marriage, and though the Lady did Beg, and Plead, and did Cry most Piteously, her Father would Not release her from the Bethrothal. So the Lady had caused to be Cast about the Knight an Enchanted Circle, imprisoning Him Within.

Now it was that the Circle could only be Broken in Two Ways. Th Knight could Renounce any Claims upon the Lady or Her Hand in Marriage, forever;

Or, He could state his Love for Her in Such a Manner that She would Truly Believe Him.

Now the Knight thought long and hard Upon his answer, for though his Reputation may have been a WEE bit exagerrated, it Was Well Deserved. And if the Truth be Told; When he had Entered into theBetrothal, He had thought much about the Gold and Lands he would be receive and the Influence that the Ladies Father would be Granting him at Court, And Very Little upon the Lady Herself.

But as he Pondered, the Knight did Find within his Breast a Desire for that Which the Lady did Desire; a Marriage of the Heart, and For Love.

This then, was the Knight's Reply:

Whither thou Goeth, I'll go.
And Whither thou stayeth, I'll stay.
I''ll be Your Partner Forever, if only You'll say I may.

Put your Hand in my Hand, Dear.
Walk by my Side, My Love!
We were Meant for Each Other,
just as the Hand fits the Glove.

Would that I wake to your Beauty,
at the Dawn of each Day.
And I would praise God each Evening,
if I were Permitted to Say:

Whither thou goeth I'll go.
And whither thou stayeth I'll stay.
I'll be your True Love forever, if only You'll say I may.

With this Ring I would Wed thee,
With your Ring make me thine.
But two Metal Bands, about Our hands, are but the Outward Sign.
The Flame of Love we have Kindled, May it always Shine!
May we always See its Light, in each Others Eyes!

Whither thou goeth I'll go.
And Whither thou stayeth I'll stay.
Side by Side, forever, if only You'll say I May.

Let us grow Olde together,
United through thick and through thin.
Two made One, forever, Surrounded by Kindred and Kin!
I will pledge You my Love, Dear;
If You will pledge yours Mine.
All I have, and All I am, are Yours for All of Time!

Whither thou goeth I'll go.
And whither thou stayeth I'll stay.
I will be faithful forever, if only You'll say I May.

Yes I will be Faithful Forever, If Only You'll Say I May!

*pause* So I ask you? Did she believe him or no?

We weren't living together, just dancing partners and exclusive dates for 4 years, and I thought of him as my significant other, and he seemed to reciprocate. He was the guy named Norris (remember the thread on what does Norris mean?) and four years certainly made me think I deserved more than a furtive move out of state without notice or comment. Well, who wants a coward anyway, right?

Alice, that is sad and makes me think of a tune that goes with these words, most of which i have forgotten, but this should be a sing-along, so someone grab a gitar and shall we serenade the lady at the top of our lungs:

"well i'm busted, disgusted and bent all out of shape...talk about the low-down blues, I've got 'em..."

now, Spaw, having tried to look up "lamarca" in various dictionaries and so forth, I have yet to establish exactly what type of flamingos are high-stepping around this joint. So far am partial to "Lamarckism" to explain the word and hoo hah there have certainly evolved some pur-rity stir-range critters in here...

Alice,

Cowards end up living the life they deserve. I'm so sorry you were hurt by this creep. Remember that you've got a lot of friends who share in the belief that he should be subjected to hundreds of paper cuts just before falling into a vat of lemon juice. While Barry Manilow plays in the background.

'spaw, besides everything else you are (although right in the head isn't one of them), you've become the encapsulator of the 'cat. How do you remember all those threads and references? Well, I guess ingrown hairs encapsulate too. It's vintage 'spaw. Funny, touching and right on.

I'll volunteer to monitor the b'day cake. I know it's only three candles, but when you think of the intention and love and energy which reside in this place, you know they'll burn bright.

Here's a toast my friends, to Max and his elves and fairies who keep the lights on at the Mudcat. Friends be upstanding: Max, and the Mudcat, Many Happy Returns of the Day.

E.S.

Alice,

I really sympathize. Other than losing companionship, it's awful to lose your regular dance partner. I did ballroom & high-level round dancing w/ a man for 6 years. After we parted, it hurt me for years (& still does, when I hear certain songs. It's not the end of the world, but it's sure no fun! Let's all the girls get together for a good hug!

love,

Barbara

P.S.--Catspaw, as flattered as I am by Mom of the Year, I'm concerned that you must have too much time on your hands if you can think up lists like that! ;)

Alice, so sorry to hear of your news, have a drink or two and feel the warmth of mudcat, and if you need a cuddle I can recommend cats, a quick stroke can take some of the sting out of a lot of sorrow.

Hello everyone!!

I have always felt that it should be the parents that get the gifts on someones birthday, so Max, here is a great big hug and kiss for making such a wonderful and successful child. OOOXXX

Come here and let be get you something to drink, Alice. I've been there a couple of time myself, and I've caused a little pain myself. It's never easy either way, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Cry for a while then go out and enjoy your freedom. Dance with a few and have fun til the one who dances perfect just with you comes along. No need to be lonely til then.

Meanwhile, you're welcome to come and visit with us anytime you'd like or feel a need to have friendly warm company.

May I have a Tanqueray and Tonic, no lime, please?

MAG, the alcohol content in this rum is so high you have to set your blender on "dice" or it will explode into flames. When you remove the blender cover, the onrush of fumes will give you a close encounter with the secret of all creation. The hot rush of rum down your throat, coupled with the frozen ice-cream slush, will make you feel that you are are riding a flaming toboggan through a blizzard on the Matterhorn.

Hey, I'm back. I've been in the ladies room warming up my voice out of eardrum distance... Pur dicesti, o bocca, bocca bella, o bocca bocca bella, Quel soave e caro sì, sì, Che fa tutto il mio piacer, il mio piacer.
There, now the vocal folds are tuned, and we can all sing a rousing Mudcat Radio, then I'll give you the one I keep meaning to tape and mail to Max:

Come all you loyal Mudcats,
Wherever you may be,
And don't follow just any webmaster,
You know Max is for you and me.
For you can log on early,
In the clear day light of dawn,
And I know that you'll always be able,
To find your favorite song.

My vocal cords may wear out,
My voice, it may get thin,
And my lips, they are a tremblin',
For the shape that Catspaw's in.
But our voices rise up early,
In the clear day light of dawn,
And I know that we're all able,
To pray while he is gone.

Well, rise up all you Mudcats,
And sing to break of day,
Don't sink into the deep despair,
Of gloom and clouds of grey,
Whatever this old world may bring,
You know your friends are still there,
Cause all around the world,
Mudcatters have joined in prayer.

And Catspaw, he'll return again,
He's here in every thread,
For if you do a forum search,
You'll find old things you've read,
That made you wince or laugh and smile,
The way he only can,
And we know that when he's back here,
Cat **** will hit the fan.

So, blessings on all Mudcats,
And be they near or far,
We sit by cyber firesides,
And drink another jar.
By the flickering lights of monitors,
We slide the silent mouse,
And I know that wherever we're living,
We're together at Max's house.

(written back when Spaw was in the hospital... glad you made it to this party, Spaw.)

Sorry Alice.....When we finally got home, I went of and played in the chat room and was about to go do afew other things now that the rest of the family is asleep and my insomnia is kicking in. But I thought I'd check in at the Tavern to see if Cletus had dropped off the stuff...I guess I missed your first post when I was screwing with Max.........Like our dear Mario, I'd like to apologize for the male of the species. Seems like I did this somewhere else just the other day on a different thread!!!I don't really understand the male animal and I'm one. This boy of yours is a real fockin scumbag and if you find his new address or e-mail, I'd be happy to send him a "Spaw the Dago" Special.

Your song Alice...deeply touched me then as it does now. Before you send it to Max, you might be able to work it around more generically without the references to me. The spirit and community of the Cat come through so very well though and "that's what its all about." Thank you once again.........and I'm glad I made it here too. I'm glad we're all here.......what a wonderful group ..............

Work it up in the shower and send that 10th warped harp to the party with the other nine!!!!

Hi gang, I'll have a quart of that frozen mudslush stuff, with a shot of tequila back. It's been a day.

Alice, as you may remember from a previous posting, I, too, got unceremoniously, spectacularly dumped at the beginning of the year (we were engaged, living together, I came home one day and he was packed and leaving, with absolutely NO conversation about it at all...I nearly died. But I didn't). HOWEVER, karma is such a sweet thing. He moved out of town, took a "great new job" in another state and basically thumbed his nose at all who knew him.

I just heard that the company is going under and he's deeply, deeply screwed. I don't like myself for the thrill of vengeance I feel, but I must admit to feeling it. Yesssss! And I, on the other hand, am having a great time and actually starting to breathe again. The idea of ever having a relationship again makes me cringe, but I AM living and doing well. So. The wheel turns. He'll come to no good for this. You, on the other hand, will be splendid. Already are.

And now, that tequila, barkeep, if you please?

You know, we come to know each other, on the web in a very special way. No visuals, no phony stuff, we get to know one anothers hearts. And let me tell you what I know about you. You are as fine a person as I have ever met. A person of deep feelings, who has learned a lesson or two along the way. No person loves their child more than our Alice. It seems that there is only one weakness that I can see, and that is that you didn't recognize that this idiot was a spineless scoundrel. But I suppose your oversized heart is to blame for that. At any rate, the wheel always turns, and this gobshite will get his. And I can tell you this for sure. He is an eejit to let go of someone like you. You have such depth. But as your friend, I am sorry you have to go through this. Makes me very sad. So come on, dear friend. Let's take a spin around the dance floor. Didn't know that I could tango, didja? Hell, MMario isn't the only one who knows how. I don't t'ink THE FAIR ONE will mind. Besides, she and I are going to play find the potato later....What FAIR ONE?

Happy Birthday, to the best damn spot on the net. I am proud to be one of the regulars here. I know my work takes me away for long periods, but I come back and it is all still here. I love this place, and I love you all for being here.................And Alice, we all love you and remain here for whatever you need from us............now come on, let's go do that tango.........and then you and I have to sing a song together.............

Okay..............

The government observed your lust for The Fair One and named a missile after you...ICBM, Intercontinental Big Mick...because you "go off" just about as fast. Quit flattering yourself by buying those National Condoms labeled "Irish Super Stud"....according to the American Condom Manufacturers Association generic brand sizing chart, that's the 15 mm Micro-Mini.............Which is all you need since, like Father Joebro, in heat you resemble half of a melting popsicle flanked by 2 dessicated jelly beans. And your Grandfather never drank beverages he could see through because as a youngster he had a sip of 'Shine that knocked him on his wimpy ass for 17 days. It also caused him to lose half of his original IQ and altered his genetic make-up, assuring that each succeeding generation would be nicknamed "Charlie Carrot" and not know shit from Shinola...Which explains why you need a day job since you stupidly invested $54,000. on a huge pile of manure delivered to your house assuming it was shoe polish.

Alice, you'll have no shortage of dancing partners here full of old world courtesy, and in the virtual ballromm noone can step on your toes. (Hey, PeteT does that qualify as a DEEP THOUGHT?).
Now where's that broom (the Robert Johnson superdust model) I'll make a start on the debris, not fair to leave it all to bbc & LEJ.

I'm trying to get into the New York Times as a famous Mudcat artist, challenging contemporary mores, standing up for freedom of speech and the right to smear our icon, and hoping to make big bucks!

Had you asked me three years ago whether I thought you could get that sense of comraderie on-line that you get at a live festival with lots of group music sharing, I would have said no, impossible. If today proves anything its how wrong I would have been. Happy Birthday to us.

BTW. Hope you don't mind if I treat this like my party too, just a little. Back on this day in 1960, I pushed my way into the world.

I brought a big crock pot of homemade chicken Gumbo with some real nice andouille sausage, and a pot of steamed rice.

Hey, when do we start comparing our exotic dance techniques?

Happy Birthday, Jack (who is called Jack). A round for you. Yes, kat, my exhibit contains all these, some frozen wading birds, a picture of you erasing Taliban warriors with a spiritual Kalashnikov rifle, and the SAD-O-METER (which Susan A-R keeps threatening to return to me!!) which is not needed today, so it is gathering well earned dust in the corner.
yours, Peter T.

While you eat your birthday stew
We will loot the town for you,
Happy Birthday. [Hunh!] Happy Birthday. [Hunh!]

Indigestion's what you get
From the enemies you 'et,
Happy Birthday. [Hunh!] Happy Birthday. [Hunh!]

We brought linen, white as cloud,
Now we'll sit and sew your shroud,

Just be glad the friends you've got
Haven't found out you-know-what!

This one lesson you must learn,
_First_ you plunder, _then_ you burn!

Hear the Women Wail and Weep
Kill them all, But Spare the Sheep

alice - the "Volga Birthday dirge" aka "the Barbarian Birthday Dirge" has been around for a long time. I know the SCA (society for Creative Anachronism) claims to have originated it, but I have heard people claim to have heard it in the 50's which predates the SCA. It is sung to the tune of "volga Boatmen"

and you have to do the grunts.

ok, got it Mario.

I have an old, brittle copy of sheet music of the 'Song of the Volga Boatmen' - that inspired the Cecil B. DeMille motion picture production "The Volga Boatman" with William Boyd and Elinor Fair...

Pull once more, lad,
pull once more!
Yo-o Heave Ho!
Yo-o Heave Ho!

so, here we go with more Mudcat verses

Pull my leg, Art,
Give us another pun,

MMario, MMario, thanks, thanks, I heard that song years ago and couldn't for the life of me remember where. NOW I recall -- it was an SCA gathering in Los Alamos, New Mexico ten or more years ago.

Jack, Happy day of birth. What can I get you (to drink, to drink)? Unless, of course, you wanted a boost up so you can jump out of the cake, too. Of course, we can't lick icing off of absolutely EVERYbody who pops out of the cake, regardless of how much fun Max had when he jumped...

PRESS RELEASE (BUT RELEASE WON'T COME!)******
Mudcat Tavern -- October 2 --
Patrons at the infamous Mudcat Tavern have added to their reputation as the Internet version of the Japanese nuclear industry by sponsoring a "Freedom of, Like, Mumble" Exhibition to celebrate their survival after a 3rd Birthday Celebration.
Witnesses to the Celebration said that it was like outtakes from "Volcano" mingled with a dress rehearsal for "Opossum! : The Musical" designed by LEJ Fellini (first cousin to the legendary director). On sale to support open mumbling was a dress once worn by Marilyn Monroe and destroyed by a labor organizer, the empty bankbook of the jerk who dumped Wyowoman, a wiring diagram for the underside of the car of the jerk who dumped Alice, and a velvet painting of a nubile visionary holding a Kalashnikov rifle in a very spiritual manner over the dead bodies of a significant portion of the Taliban "Freedom Fighters". Protests against the portrayal of the Afghanistan leadership were sweetly responded to by the woman portrayed in the painting, a Ms. Katlaughing of Wyoming, in a phrase that sounded like "bottom feeding scum suckers".
Central to the exhibition is a second painting of a Possum dressed up to look like St. Francis of Assisi. Entitled "For The Birds", and thematically related to ecological concerns for planetary survival, the painting portrays the struggle of the animal kingdom to get its point across. Elephant Dung and Bird Poop are spread ingeniously across the painting surface, reminding patrons to look carefully, especially when wearing dress shoes and formal wear at the circus or on shipboard.
The Mayor of Mudcat Village, Completely Unscrupulos, a former Greek shipping magnate, has condemned the exhibition unequivocally. "I condemn this exhibition un -- un -- whatever that guy said in the last sentence!!!". The exhibition is currently sold out through the duration of its run. Tickets are available everywhere:
