Thank you, on behalf of all Silly Engineers.

Oh, we take a lot of shit sometimes, but where would you go without us?

Efficient plumbing is the hallmark of a great civilization, Amos. Clean water and proper sewage treatment are the uncelebrated, unheralded, heroes who have made our so-called civilization possible.

This is what Leo Tolstoy wrote about Writing Without (very many) Vowels (in Anna Karenina):
`No,' said Kitty, blushing, but looking at him all the more bravely with her truthful eyes; `a girl may be so circumstanced that she cannot live in the family without humiliation, while she herself...'

At the hint he understood her.

`Oh, yes,' he said. `Yes, yes, yes - you're right; you're right!'

And he saw all that Pestsov had been maintaining at dinner about the liberty of woman, simply from getting a glimpse of the terror of an old maid's existence and its humiliation in Kitty's heart; and loving her, he felt that terror and humiliation, and at once gave up his arguments.

A silence followed. She was still drawing with the chalk on the table. Her eyes were shining with a soft light. Under the influence of her mood he felt in all his being a continually growing tension of happiness.

`Ah! I've scribbled all over the table!' she said, and, laying down the chalk, she made a movement as though to get up.

`What! Shall I be left alone - without her?' he thought with horror, and he took the chalk. `Wait a minute,' he said, sitting down to the table. `I've long wanted to ask you one thing.'

He looked straight into her caressing, though frightened eyes.

`Please, ask it.'

`Here,' he said; and he wrote the initial letters, w, y, t, m: i, c, n, b, d, t, m, n, o, t. These letters meant, `When you told me: it could never be, did that mean never, or then?' There seemed no likelihood that she could make out this complicated sentence; but he looked at her as though his life depended on her understanding the words.

She glanced at him seriously, then leaned her puckered brow on her hands and began to read. Once or twice she stole a look at him, as though asking him, `Is it what I think it is?'

`I understand,' she said, flushing.

`What is this word?' he said, pointing to the n that stood for never.

`It means never,' she said; `but that's not true!'

He quickly rubbed out what he had written, gave her the chalk, and stood up. She wrote, t, i, c, n, a, d.

Dolly was completely comforted in the depression caused by her conversation with Alexei Alexandrovich when she caught sight of the two figures: Kitty with the chalk in her hand, with a shy and happy smile looking upward at Levin, and his handsome figure bending over the table with glowing eyes fastened one minute on the table and the next on her. He was suddenly radiant: he had understood. It meant, `Then I could not answer differently.'

He glanced at her questioningly, timidly.

`Only then?'

`Yes,' her smile answered.

`And n... And now?' he asked.

`Well, read this. I'll tell you what I should like - should like so much!' She wrote the initial letters, i, y, c, f, a, f, w, h. This meant, `If you could forget and forgive what happened.'

He snatched the chalk with nervous, trembling fingers, and breaking it, wrote the initial letters of the following phrase, `I have nothing to forget and to forgive; I have never ceased to love you.'

She glanced at him with a smile that did not waver.

`I understand,' she said in a whisper.

He sat down and wrote a long phrase. She understood it all, and without asking him, `Is it this?' took the chalk and at once answered.

For a long while he could not understand what she had written, and often looked into her eyes. He was stupefied with happiness. He could not supply the words she had meant; but in her charming eyes, beaming with happiness, he saw all he needed to know. And he wrote three letters. But he had hardly finished writing when she read them over her arm, and herself finished and wrote the answer, `Yes.'

Mom, I celebrate the plumber, stout and burly, who clambered up to our roof today lugging a hundred and twenty pounds of scarred and brutish drain cleaning machine and placed it firmly in its place and made it snarl and spit and chew. From his high vantage point, using sheer will and the sweat of his bulbous muskles, he drove the tip of that shit-eating monster down through the air vent, into the garage drain and along the length of a lateral to the place where he found the Wall of Crud that had backed up our garage sink and kitchen drain. It was a gruesome situation, with foul black bilious waters oozing up into the kitchen sink and filling the laundry sink, but he was undismayed. He sent out fifteen, twenty, thirty feet of sinewy cable and drove his whirling steel tooth deeper and deeper into the muck. He strained and heaved and drove. The house shivered with the grinding clank of his monstrous wild rotary-steel machine, threatening at any minute to break his spell and flail out at him, throwing him from the rooftop or devouring him on the spot. But he held it in his steely gaze and iron grip, and drilled on.

And he conquered that pipe, Mom. He did. A moment came when the six inches of water in the kitchen sink sank and vanished, leaving only a rime of filthy black sludge in its wake. Another moment and the laundry sink, too, succumbed to his stubborn will and gave up its load to the pipes below, gurgling and gasping with resentful exhaustion as it yielded to his greater power.

A short while later he was done, the drains were running free with hot, clear water flushing them to the street and the giant sewer beyond. He beamed with the satisfaction of victory and hauled his slave machine, panting from the exertion, back down the ladder into its cage in the back of his DrainMedic truck.

He sank, exhausted, into our garage chair and laughed the weary laugh of the conqueror, home from battle.

I celebrate this man, who succeeded where others failed before him, and brought home the bacon.

Back when we were in our Youth,
Justice Beauty and the Truth
Was what we thought that Life was all about.
But now that we've aged apace
We have learned that Life is based
On water going in and coming out!

The plumber is the Man,
The plumber is the Man
He's never there until you call
Then he drives out through the night
And he puts your plumbing right,
Oh, the plumber is the man who saves us all!

It was difficult for a third grader to understand "w" as a vowel, but we really weren't into Welsh back in grade school. In fact, some of my classmates had a hard time with their vowels. I remember one or two who had vowel blockages for months, but they worked it out in the end.

Congratulations, Janie. You are one of the very few people who have ever actually SEEN a computer bug instead of merely experiencing one.

Amos, I am quite capable of eschewing my usual style of prose (which gives the reader the benefit of an assumption of a modicum of intelligence and erudition) and attempt communication in a more academic or obfuscating manner (such as Governmentese). Or, should you prefer, I can lower my style to that of, shall we say, Shame McBride. Which would you prefer?

(Not speaking German I'm afraid I cannot communicate in Germanic polysyllables. Making head-on collisions out of poor old ordinary words seems to me to be a way to wreck communications, not improve them. But as Schiller wrote, "Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens.")

Eiseley, you have confirmed a suspicion I've been harboring over the last few days. That big sink hole in Guatamala that people believe was caused by all the rain? Well, I don't buy it.

Rejoice with me! My three-week-long, very intensive Advanced Storytelling Class is over!!!

It was fun, but hard. You are now invited to "attend" my storytelling concert here. Everyone in the class recorded a fable---either one adapted from a fable in the public domain, or one he or she created. I chose the latter option and wrote one called "The Strong City." Please enjoy!
