I thought ChanteyLass lived in New Mexico. I'm probably thinking of someone else.

My niece married into a well-to-do Boston family (a house in Cambridge/Harvard Square, etc.) and they have a beach place in Rhode Island. I poked around on Google maps. It's in the realm of "just a house" a block or two from the beach, but I'm sure even those don't go for a song. Every one of them seems to be built large with plenty of bedrooms for family visiting in the summer.

Don mentioned a cough before, I was hoping it was a passing thing and there are no symptoms now? Anyway, you don't need to discuss it in the open thread, but stay well, my friend!

Funny you should mention submarines around Rhode Island,
because that reminds me of something else actually.
My brief acquaintance with Rhode Island,
especially the closer you get to the shore and the Long Island Sound,
is that there is more to it than
Newport and those impossible mansions rising seemingly out of the water's edge.

In places like Greater Providence, with its many suburbs,
or Pawtucket to the north and east,
there are whole enclaves of people who are
Italian-Americans by way of New York and New Jersey,
and submarines to them are sandwiches,
often very peppery spicy ones.
Don't even get them started on pizzas ...

Its a good place to go submarine spotting, highway race, raise chickens and probably smuggle. *The pandemic is the main thing, the fire is the second and coming in third is the hurricane. Fourth is the open season for police shooting black people. The long standing crisis is the coup against democracy.

*in order of lethality

deadly bratwurst is #1354 on the lethal list.

I tried bratwurst for the 1st time ever Sunday. I don't like it.
There is only a typical morning cough but there is distancing going on because my wife with no discussion went to support her recently widowed oldest sister in rural Oregon, which is in her character regarding family. My only good memory of the deceased was during a family photo when he laughed at my joke that 'extraneous DNA' always stand in the back row. After 20 years the joke still works.

Stay safe, Don. Are you having symptoms or were just in the proximity of someone with COVID?

Thinking about a foray out for fresh vegetables, but it's late enough now the stores will have regular shoppers, not just sleepy seniors who had to arrive at the crack of dawn for Senior Shopping.

Maybe tomorrow. There is still stuff in the freezer.

I've had to bypass the Hatch Act with nuance regarding yard signs

Mike Lindell of 'my pillow' isn't selling pillows like he used to so he now sells Oleandrin drops to put on your pillow for a magic 'Trump Approved' Covid cure. I bet he would do better selling My Dildo.

Mom!

The word "holdup" makes perfect sense when describing the robbery of a stagecoach. If a stagecoach is moving from one place to another, its progress needs to be held up for a robbery to occur.

But why are bank robberies also called "holdups"? Banks don't move. They aren't going anywhere.

Two hurricanes possibly slamming into the Gulf Coast soon, but it won't deter the windbags on the east coast (the Hatch Act isn't sparing the federal White House staff from party politics this week). Knocking the GOP off of the front page would be nice, but they're like the worst grass burs, once they're stuck on clothing or skin nothing is very effective against them.

You can still read everything in the original MOAB - you just have to get there via a search and read it one post at a time. So do a search on Amos (and Amos as a guest, because we could post in there that way also until recently) and figure out which posts are poetry. It took a while to hide them (he told me which, so I should see if I still have that list).

Have yourself a microscopic Christmas
Let your heart beat on
From now on our virus will go out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Respect blacks and gays
From now on Christmas is just a click away
Here we are as in olden days
Like pandemic golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Are all far from us, once more
Through the years we all will be together
If vac-cines allow
Hang the Donald Trump upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas
Have yourself a little tiny Christmas
So have yourself a merry little tiny itty bitty Christmas now

The Mudcat E book will soon be unveiled with its collection of essays, stories, musings, PM exchanges, candid conversations, compromising photographs, and audio and video (semi-musical) clips, as well as interactive quizzes, is unlike anything else available when it comes to the e-book experience. Folk Fans and musicologists will delight in its direct access to the brilliant, wacky minds of these popular and talented authors/musicians. There’s plenty of teasing, riffing and ragging on each other, but at the heart of the book are these writers’ innermost sentiments about the friendships formed, the love found, and the tragedy of losing to cancer the person who brought them together.
Unfortunately many posts by Amos will not be included due to an abundance of hope of future publication profits.

Did you know kiwi fruit have stiff, sharp, microscopic fibers in them that temporarily attach to your throat like tiny cactus thorns? It's not really noticeable if you only eat one fruit, but if you buy a marked down bag of ten and eat five at one setting, it'll feel like your throat is going to close up. Trust me on this. Do not attempt to verify by personal experimentation.

We carefully watch the AQI. I change the furnace filters (HEPA) more often than I need to. We even "sanitize" the blades of the ceiling fan. AC isn't high on my list of faves, but it's better than 100F heat and pollen. Recently I discovered that I'm allergic to the news.

A big plastic factory on the far east side of the county has been on fire for several days. The general direction of wind is NW so over downtown Fort Worth. I suspect everyone within a four county area has inhaled incompletely combusted hydrocarbons this week. Soon the air will be filled with ragweed pollen. The face masks are something we should probably be wearing anyway, even without COVID-19.

My Mondays are now 165 hours long. The only part of the week that isn't Monday is the three hours on Saturday evening that I spend playing socially-distanced music on a friend's porch. Monday begins immediately thereafter and runs until 8 PM the following Saturday.

My phone still says there are other days. For example, it says it's currently Tuesday. But I don't believe it. If I were to do that OS update that I've been putting off, it would probably say "Monday" every time I looked at it.

I wish mothers would stop using the possibility of an emergency room visit as a reason to wear clean underwear. If you should wind up in the ER due to a serious accident, they're going to cut all your clothes off anyway, So why waste a good pair of clean underwear? If they're going to be sacrificed, just wear dirty ones. In fact, you should make it a point to wear dirty underwear any time you get an a car, just in case you're in an accident.

Here's a question I just asked myself.

A wildfire is QUICKLY approaching you home and you have 30 minutes to evacuate. You have "grab and go" boxes containing insurance, family pictures, and other important papers; you can easily grab your laptop and the backup drives; your toiletries and medicines are simple to grab -- but you have room and weight for no more than six books.

What six books would you take? The rest of what you own will be ashes very quickly and you gotta load and scoot!
