Subject: Micca's got the blues: Help him out...
From: Fortunato
Date: 02 Dec 01 - 11:11 AM

I got a message that our pal Micca's got a bad case of the blues. I live too far away to go. If Morticia or Liz the Squeak want to they can pm me his phone # and I'll call.

Meantime, if Gervase or any other Londoners are fishing here today, you might give the little guy a call or take him out for a cuppa or a pint.

Micca has A LOT of friends here at the Mudcat I know. Do you have a message for him?



Regards, Fortunato

Micca,
I'm sorry you are having such a hard time right now. Try to think of the Getaway and Kendall's visit and all the good times. And then try to plan for doing it again next year. It won't take away the pain but it will give you a reason to keep going. And if it gets too bad, hop on a plane and spend some time in New York with me. Alice misses you.

Micca, if this thread doesn't cheer you, I don't know what will! Of course, after yesterday, you may need a little more cheering after you get your phone bill!
You know you are dearly loved and missed by all your US friends who had such a treat when you were here. Chin up, my dear, and get yourself around the comfort of singing voices until the dark time ends!

That's what happens when you demonstrate how much you like and need people Micca, old son. They come outta the woodwork whether you want 'em to or not!

The blues will end (they're usually about 3 minutes and 15 seconds...if Big Bill Broonzy's the milepost.)

Listen, my wee friend. Follow the instructions very carefully............Go get the Green Man/Folk Legacy hat and put it on..........A dram or 6 or 10 should be ingested slowly while thinking of your friends at the Getaway and in the States, all the while staring at your navel and humming "The Hash Me Father Scored" in Gregorian chant mode..........Once you have gotten yourself headed down the mystic road to giggles, finish the meditation with the mental image of Kendall and Max singing love songs to one another at half 4 in the morning..........then go get your intended, the flamingo..............this should do it. You should be laughing uproareously by now.

And always remember. You have friends.

Mick, one of your biggest fans.

Micca, my friend, I took that beer mug you gave me and placed it on the window sill just over the sink. Now, when I'm doing dishes, a job I hate, I can look at that mug, tankard? and remember my visit to London, and my time with you. I know what you are going through, been there twice meself, and, it sucks.Would it help to think what it would be like if you had no friends? You are aces in my book Mate, hang in there and remember, nothing in the universe is static, all things come to an end, including grief. It just takes longer than joy. Go to Yorkshire, spend some time with Dave (the gnome) get a fifth of spiced rum, and,get your mind off your problem for a while. Try to figure out what Dave is saying, that should keep you busy!

Micca, if you want to join a pub crawl meet up with me at the Crown on Clerkenwell Green At 7.30 pm on Tuesday and come out with East Saxon Sword. Mind you, you'll have to do a bit of walking but I think a bit of exercise won't be bad for you and we've one or two interesting pubs to visit.

And what with all you have going Micca, it's also coming into Christmas and that in itself can be a real bummer. As a matter of fact, it was just about this same time of year that I first met Cletus, Paw, and Buford.

I had noticed an area on Rt. 664 just outside of our little village being carefully prepared and roped off as I drove by and every now and then there were these three guys working there, building a little shed and driving stakes into the ground about 6 feet apart. It finally dawned on me that they were getting ready to sell Christmas trees. Now I have always gotten ours from the same place for years, but the prices were getting pretty steep so I kept an eye out for new sources. The day they put up the lights, I stopped by to see when they'd be bringing the trees in.

As I got out of the van I couldn't help but notice that these three, from all appearances, were a bit "down on their luck" and it made me want to help them out a bit. Cletus came up to me and introduced himself and I asked about the trees. He was glad to tell me all about them in that way which I've since learned to interpret. At that time however all I could seem to understand was that they were "working on them." These many years later, that kind of phrase would set off alarms, but I didn't know Cletus then so I thought it was just an odd hilljack way of phrasing things. Paw came over and I liked the old guy a lot right away. He said he'd seen me before and I remembered something about the sewage plant and the day it exploded. I couldn't place what it was that this guy had to do with it but the correlation seemed quite vivid. I shook his hand and he farted in return.

I had never met anyone who was quite so casual with flatulence. Paw used it almost as punctuation......."How ya' doin'?" (rriippp) "Purty day ain't she?" (bbraawwmmpp)..........Let's say it took some getting used to and made it easy to understand why this old coot could probably not find gainful employment. But for all that, he was a friendly cuss who told me they called him Paw because he was from Paw-Paw, West Virginia. He pointed out the other fellow named Buford who was involved in extricating himself from a string of Christmas lights that seemed to have attacked him. Even from a distance, the unmistakable smell of Iron City brew was pretty strong. I figured he spilled about the same amount on himself as he drank and I later found this to be not only true, but the amounts involved were prodigious.

All in all, I couldn't help but like them even if they were, well, let's just call them odd and drop it right there. They told me the trees would be in and they'd be open for business on Friday at 6 PM. I left shaking my head at the idea of bringing Karen and the kids to "pick out the tree" as was so traditional with our family. What the hell? We can at least check them out.

On Friday afternoon Karen and I were going into Lancaster and as we passed by I pointed out the place, not that it was really necessary to point. I'd never seen anything quite so garish in my life but it was one of those gray Ohio days, very cold and occasionally spitting snow so perhaps it was the contrast......perhaps not. Karen was making comments about the place, but as we drove past we could both see the trees that were now in place quite well. Surprisingly enough, they looked magnificent! All were very full and perfectly shaped and a greener bunch of Christmas trees I'd never seen. Even at 65 mph, Karen saw one on the far end of the first row that she said was absolutely "the one!" Since she and our kids were going to spend the night with Connie and go shopping on Saturday, I promised her I'd stop back and get the tree and forget the tradition for one year.

So on my return trip I looked at my watch and saw that I'd arrive about the time Cletus told me they would open and sure enough, I was the first one there. Cletus, Paw, and Buford, greeted me as a long lost friend. They were really in the Christmas Spirit and offered me some of their "spirits." Friends, there is 'Shine and then there is 'Shine and whatever it was they had in the Mason jars was not. I found out later that this was a homebrew of their own and made not from corn, but soybeans, and distilled through an old radiator off a Mack. Luckily I only tasted it, but that single gulp went down like a 4-stage rocket, taking my breath away, and immediately starting to bore a hole in my stomach. After the coughing subsided I gave them the common courtesy line you use upon tasting any 'Shine..........."Smooth!"

They were all adorned themselves with some of the seediest Santa hats I had ever seen and were ready for business. They said I was the first customer and I nodded appreciatively while glancing about at the trees. Even up at a closer viewing they seemed almost perfectly formed and beautifully green and I thought the light snow must be the reason they glistened so under the glaring bulbs. It was dark now and the temperature had dropped to about 25 with a nasty northwesterly blowing in a chill from Alberta. My eyes were no longer crossed from the 'Shine and I slowly became aware that something was odd about the trees. They weren't moving at all. Not a branch, not a needle, absolutely nothing was moving although the breeze was pretty stiff. Paw commented on the weather and let fly an air biscuit as I walked over to the tree Karen had seen earlier. I reached out to touch it and it was positively stiff!

I felt several branches and the whole thing down to the smallest needle was like glass. I put a little extra pressure on a needle and it shattered in my gloved hand. What the hell was this anyway? Cletus came up and asked how I liked them as Paw and Buford tossed wood in a barrel to start a warming fire. I said I thought these were real trees, but they seemed to be artificial. Cletus protested they were real.......and recycled. Once in awhile you hear sommething that is so completely ridiculous that it takes some time before you can absorb the fact that the speaker is completely serious. Recycled Christmas trees. My mind was slowly opening to the sound of Cletus' voice proudly telling the tale of how they collected them last year and then formed them up, glued in branches with rubber cement, gave them several coats of shellac, painted them with spray cans of "Yew Be Green" epoxy, and topped the job off with several coats of lacquer.

I stared at the tree. I stared at Cletus. I stared at the tree. I stared at Cletus. I stared at the tree. I stared at Cletus. Cletus noticed I was a bit pale and pulled me by the arm over to the shed where Paw and Buford had finished filling the barrel and were dumping gasoline onto the contents. Cletus said that I should have another drink and then Paw asked if I was cold. I nodded vacantly, my mind still unable to absorb the insanity which surrounded me. Then I heard Cletus say, "Hey Paw, show him how we light a fire."

With that, Paw bent over pointing his butt at the barrel, Buford held a Zippo to his ass, and Paw ripped a monster of a fart, something akin to a Cherry Bomb in it's magnitude. An enormous flame shot out of his ass and ignited the barrel which flared high in the air. But it was a truly huge blaster and the flames not only ignited the barrel, but the nearest recycled Christmas trees. Coated as they were with such a combustible mixture, they didn't catch fire, they friggin' exploded! Bits of flaming plastic-like shards went flying away on the wind to explode the next tree, and the next, and the next. Within 30 seconds the remnants of every tree was flaming brightly and in less than a minute the flames were gone and 50 smoldering sticks were all that remained. None of us had moved and Paw was still bent over and looking over his shoulder at the charred remains of their business.

The next day when I picked Karen up, we stopped at our usual place and picked out a lovely Frazier Fir. I had told her the story and that I figured that here was a case where a single fart may not have saved the world, but at least did save 50 home fires. We stopped at their place and the boys were cleaning up the mess and told us it probably meant a Christmas that would be a little bleak for them. Karen is a kind soul and right then and there invited them to our place for Christmas Day. She said they should come early and maybe Santa will have left something for them and that they would be welcome for Christmas dinner too. As we drove home I tried to explain that this probably wasn't a great idea but Karen felt pretty bad for them and they had cheerfully accepted her invitation.

On Christmas morning they arrived at 6 AM and the day went downhill from there. But that's another story.

So Micca old friend, no matter how bad it is and how you feel, there is always a friend out there for you. Even if you're obnoxious, nasty, and haven't bathed in a month, there is always the chance that if you can light a good fart, miracles will occur.

well, Chance, you are a piece of work!!!! But I thank you,( and forgive you!!) for the very kind thoughts,and the friendship of you and the lovely Suzette, and all my friends who have rallyed round and said nice things. ( I am Mightily embarrassed, but not a fool, I will take the support and affection of friends where ever it is offered with gratitude and as graciously as I am able and hope I can offer similar should the opportunity arise)
This "Blue" is just a part of a very hard process that is having to be got through just now and if the "high " of the trip to the Getaway and the rest of the trip had been less high ,it might have been less severe( I wouldnt have swapped a minute!!!) but divorce hurts and injures all partys, even if they do not open up and expose their feelings easily.. and it is , and has been my modus vivendi to hide my feelings, perhaps wrongly, or mistakenly, from those close (I wouldnt want to worry them) and some times one has to be sensitive to their ability to cope with the information one is imparting, and not make them feel they are or have to "take sides". There are many situations and events at the moment that contribute to this "Blue" and I am working , slowly towards the light. I thank you all for your friendship and warmth, there are some special folks here on the ol'Mudcat, I will not name names( except one) of the folks who have been very special, You KNOW who you are and you know how I feel about you,
The one name I will name, for so consistenly making me laugh aloud , even in the darkest times is my "cousin" Catspaw!!!! the Paw, Buford, Reg^3 stories, are so funny!!!! Thank you Spaw.. and to you all..

"Can you fix this?", he asked?...this was Blackwood, with less than 1/8 inch wall, and he wanted it glued so it could be used!!!..."No way", says I.....*sigh*....I don't know even now what he is wanting reeds for...

Micca, I'm struggling with the GS arithmetic here - 50% champagne and 50% peach juice doesn't leave room for the apricot brandy. I guess you're saying it's equal quantities of champagne and peach juice and a jigger of apricot brandy as deemed appropriate for the sum total of other ingredients? And taking account of likely ensuing hangover (unless you have a Terry Pratchett arrangement for dealing with the hangover in advance)?

Micca, we never got to talk about songwriting on you recent trip, darn it! Maybe next year at the Getaway, we could have a songwriter's circle and not a workshop... or a workshop AND a circle. People care about you, which I'm sure you know. Also, quite a few of us have either been 'round the bend or had our turn signals on. This song may not be your cup of... whatever came out of that flask, but it's just for you.

Chasing the Light
(c)2006 Jeri Corlew

Here's what I wish for an unhappy friend
Only that sadness and strife do end
Banish the clouds of another dim day
Find one patch of light to guide your way

And whether 'tis sunlight through autumn jewelled trees
That dapples and dances on fiery leaves
Or the moon that laughs on midnight green dew
Sometimes you find light, sometimes it finds you

But it never remains in the same place
You must chase it to feel it again on your face
And if darkness is where you now have to be
Gather strength for the hunt, 'til you can burst free

For chasing the light is a difficult thing
You must look anywhere it may shimmer and sing
But here is a thing that I'm sure you know --
It's the dark that makes the light dance so

Hey, how about a holiday joke?

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

"In honor of this holy season," Saint Peter said, "you must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven."

The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He
flicked it on. "It represents a candle," he said.

"You may pass through the pearly gates," Saint Peter said.

The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, "They're bells."

Saint Peter said, "You may pass through the pearly gates."

The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties. St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, "And just what do those symbolize?"

The man replied, "These are Carols."

I just bought, at a local French Market (if that isn't an oxymoron) a jar of 20 year old calvados in which floats an orange and a number of coffee beans and with sugar added. It was for Christmas but I had to try a sip and it is Beeeeeoooooootiful. Come and have a nip of it with us!!

Lastly (I know I said two things, but it's a bit like the Spanish Inquisition "Nobody expect...." etc) There is a pattern to all this even though you may not be able to see it, and you of all people know that things happen as they are supposed to and you will probably find, in the end, that it has all been for the best.

Chin up mate, you may not know who I am ( & that really does not matter ) but we have known each other by sight for decades, sorry to hear that you are hurting, but with time, yes maybe lots of it, it will subside, maybe not pass, but it WILL subside, hug your friends, that's what they are for, just like you would hug them if they where in pain.

Well, the rout HAS truly been called for the Blues! Let us derive dill caraway! New parodies to replace an old pair uv dose. You have support, and may your and hopefully your muse, humorous and serious, never abandon you.You seem to have a worldwide legion of friends willing to help pull you through anything whatever the actual circumstances and causes and solutions may be, and when you inspect the troops and call the roll, I'll be in formation in one of the many platoons somewhere in the ranks. A cup is raised to you-coffee, at this hour in Maryland-with the best of wishes. Hang in there!

Micca,

The tales of Mudcat friendship could have been written by Charles Dickens, and to the world outside must strain credulity. Indeed, Micca, the warmth surrounding you could heal Tiny Tim and bring good cheer to the workhouses and orphanages. In fact, these 'catters could redeem Old Scrooge himself.

Don't forget, on the other side of this sadness are many pints of cheer and songs love and honor and hours of warm fellowship. (And womanship, or ladyship or femaleship, you know.)

I'll be calling but Merry Happy HO HO HO, etc., etc.

MICCA, I went shopping the other day and found just the perfect SINSILL gift, but all things considered I think I'll send it off to you....BG ....

When I was your Santa all my clues said to send a very real package. But this time it appears to require a Blues fighting package and the signals are extremely different. Beware Sir I'm having a bit of fun with this one. NO PEEKING !!! And I may even give permission for it to be opened on my birthday rather than Yule...

Remember for you the door is always open, the new deadbolts do not apply to you.....

Next year I think we need to sit in the garden and raise a few songs to The Lady

Hugs and Hugs and More Hugs

This doesn't seem to be here at Mudcat, but I've been singing it alot lately....

This is to Mother You
Sinead O'Connor

This is to Mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to Mother you

This is to be with you
To hold you and to kiss you too
For when you need me I will do
What your own mother didn't do
Which is to mother you

All the pain that you have known
All the violence in your soul
All the 'wrong' things you have done o-oh
I will take away when I come

All mistakes made in distress
All of your unhappiness
I will take away with my kiss Yes
I will give you tenderness

For my child I am so glad I found you
Although my arms have always been around you.
Sweet bird although you did not see me
I saw you    and...

This is to Mother you
To comfort you and get you through
Through when your nights are lonely
Through when your dreams are only blue
This is to Mother you.

a "complete" bohemian --- I'm not sure the world is quite ready for Micca as a "complete" bohemian. He's demonstrated some strong tendencies in that direction, but.... is the world ready for Micca with no limits ???
