I like to imagine what virtual Everests of accomplishment might manifest if The Great Rapparree applied 20% of the energy he expends in BSing to some real creative valuable work. Mirabile hypothetical dictu! I know it ain't gonna happen, but I enjoy fantasizing about it. It's how I roll.

Yer Costco don't put no Babies Breath in with the roses no more. Ya gotta buy it separate and it's $11. Worth every penny. One of the vases looks positively gorgeous. I went to Sobeys to get a matching vase... you know... like the ones I have been walking past since my Bday. None. The other vase is a tall bluish rig that is too narrow for a dozen roses and BsB to be displayed properly but it's the thought that counts. Gotta get me a pic of the nice one. I be quite the flower deranger me.

Amos, one of my best long mountaineering backpack trips was up into the Olympics. We traversed a section of the range from Appleton Pass and came out on the Elwa. High anxiety a couple of times as we crossed areas not exactly ready for hikers (would have been easier with anchors and ropes on-belay).

The one that got away? I am thankful. This pic of my boss with my Sunday mornin catch in Nain, Labrador takes a half hour to tell properly. It includes me pissin my pants as I swam the last bit to shore with them fish (cod and char) on my back. No way was I leavin my fish to a Killer Whale. They say Orcas won't eat humans... that's on accounta the ones they ate ain't around to warn the rest of us. https://www.flickr.com/photos/15565423@N05/9641015510/

THOSE minnows? The fish I caught didn't get away, no sir! We cleaned 'em and ate 'em, just like Nature Intended. Here's a photo my brother took of one of them before we hauled it ashore and ate it.

Amos, your feeble attempts at punning might baiter be described as carping. You cod do baiter, but you have to be hooked on puns to do so and you do net seem to be. Commitment to the pun is needed, not some feeble (albeit reel) lines. Without it you risk spinning out of control, and I'll bait that you trout out your sinkers every chance you get. But cast away, for I will not stop yawl and who knows? Someday you might land one that doesn't get away.

I don't want to put a burr under anyone's saddle, but I'm off cowboy shooting tomorrow. Of course, we always eat what we shoot. Tough, stringy, and tasting of cheap beer and snoose, but ya gotta keep the population in check or they'll overrun their environment. Then the next thing ya know there'll even be clusters of cowboys in town and everywhere...in roller skatin' halls and scarin' the horses and who know where else.

I didn't win the Lotto Max last night so the party for tonight is cancelled and, as I won't be buying a ticket for the next one due to the fact that it's a paltry $13M, no party next week either.

I didn't win the Lotto last night eithrer. Well, I got one number right and it was a "Mega" which means I get $1. THe interesting thing is that each person in the huge population who buys these tickets stands in the crossroads of two entirely incompatible views.   They know the statistical odds are one in 147 million that they will win the Big Tamale. ut at the same time they know that it COULD happen, and HAS happened for SOME people, so why not them?   In the endless war between Magic and Math, it is human nature to keep one ear cocked toward Magic.

I wouldn't bet on the Magic. I don't even like basketball. Now. Yankee football, I do well. Did well. Used to do well. Don't bet much anymore. Baseball? Well, it's not even a real sport unless yer a Cubs fan with money to throw away. Curling? I would but nobody carries it. The horses don't pay. So, I throw $5 at Lotto Max when the pot is $50M and has "extra" $1M payouts.

Just found out my buddy's lad has prostatitis. A tad in his mid 20s. Never heard of it and I woulda googled it long ago if my doc had heard of it on accounta... well, you know. When I read it can cause lower back pain, I near shit myself. When I read that it can be worsened by stress, I shit on my doc. Oddly enough, I immediately felt a bit better and actually just walked 1.3km without stopping. I intend to go back out for another walk tonight now knowing I might only be an imperfect asshole.

Six hours later we're still hearing the thunder from those storms. I'd guess we have at least 4 inches of rain today. Every little bit helps, but I do wish it would pace itself. An inch a week for a month would be much more helpful than four inches in a day and no rain for weeks after.

Sonnet 19/05/01                        DLIII

        A perfect day for planting, with no sun
        To burn life from small leaves; The promise of
        Water to sustain new growth. Here's one
        Of Nature's subtle gifts, to show her love.
        You plant sweet herbs for future use, and weed
        Unwanted growth, but know a use for all
        The garden grows. Four senses gardens feed,
        And birds, who nourish fifth with evening call.
        The breeze brings cool contentment, as the day
        Slides into night. You have the future sown.
        In time, all that you plant will grow, to pay,
        With interest, labor done by harvest grown.
        With laughter in eyes, and smile touching cheek,
        You have in your garden all I might seek.

I gave up sonnetizing many years ago when I couldn't get them to stay at 14 lines. I tried the Petrachean and Shakespearean models and even blank verse, the the silly little buggers either ended up at 15 or 16 lines or shyly pulled back to 13 or even 10. And the last couplet never would hold still long enough to rhyme.

Sonnet 24/01/02                        DCL

A sonnet is a frozen tear, a kiss,
Preserved in fourteen lines. It is a pearl
Of layered thought, a gem too bright to miss
When set on page: One blossom, to unfurl
To perfect flower. As amber, sealed soul
In timeless tomb, it can show time long past,
Or hold this instant in it's grasp. The whole
Of heart upon one single page, to last
Beyond even our dreams, it seems a sip,
Distilled to essence. Refined within mind,
Lines sing sweet song, and rhymes in patterns slip,
To weave image that leaves mere vision blind.
A single chord, to resound in one's heart:
Echo of past that might your future start.

There were two old ladies of Birmingham
And this is the story concerning 'em...

AMong the dank, forgotten lines
The posts of anger, red-complected
ANd other topics much neglected.

When Mom has started sinking low,
But will, with all my wit and main,
But strive to raise her up again!
While others, who are unlike me,
But more like mean old Rapparree
With softened pates and dull neglect
Reveal the depth of disrespect
By being elsewhere in their brain,
ANd letting Mom drift down again!
