Go visit the Chesapeake Maritime Museum. As I used to say to the young ladies during my college days, "Trust me, trust me...." (They always walked away rearranging their clothing, I think. I was usually knocked cold by then.)

Hi MOM, bet you have missed me bunches and bunches. Gonna have to keep missing me a bit longer. I'm off at quiting time tomorrow for a week to Sister Annie's on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with SumYungSun. We plan doing anything that is fun and free really, really cheap. The weather gods look like they are going to smile on us, with highs in the mid to upper eighties, so hope to kayak, bicycle, go crabbing and/or fishing in the Bay, maybe rent a sunfish to play around with, play in the surf, ride go-carts, and see a good movie or two.

Especially, hope to sleep late.

BubDubEll:

That is purely grass-roots original folk art at its finest. I declare, it should be in the New Yorker or one of them cosmopolitan rags, so as to give them nouveau riche buggers a remindment of where-all they come from.

The pickle comes in a plastic bag,
The gent comes in a condom.
The bookster sees his muscles sag,
And dreams of amor quondam.

Of once-won hearts, and passions past,
And times that were romantic.
While the Hawkster dreams up new cartoons
To fill his dances frantic.

The Bubster B he turns his pots,
And sells them if he can, oh.
And Janietta strums the lute,
And dreams it's a piano.

Ole Stilly, though, she plants her feet,
She's no romantic yuppie.
She plants her plants, and pickles buys,
And feeds her hungry puppy.

And so each of us does his time,
Pursuing what he'd druther,
And coming by, once in a while,
To pay respects to Mother.

Oh, the individually packaged pickles. Yes, I've seen 'em, but since I no longer smoke Marijuana I don't get the munchies badly enough to spend that sort of money for a single pickle. They're not exactly front and center in my pickle consciousness.

However, since giving new life to one's old poetry (sic) seems to be a popular mode of expression of late, here's a blast from the past:

How to Make a Pickle Fly

I've never seen a pickle fly.
Sometimes I sit and wonder why.
Is it simply for lack of wings?
No, there are lots of other things
that hurtle through the air with ease,
like rockets, baseballs and bee-bees,
that have no wings to them affixed.
How do they do it? What's their trick?

Simple. They're through the air propelled
by forces that come from elsewhere.
A gun, a bat, a rocket engine
supply the energies that send 'em
on their journeys through the air.
Well, dang, that gives me an idear!

Just take a pickle from a jar,
remove your pants and underwear.
Then shove that pickle up your ass
and leave it while sufficient gas
pressure builds up to send it flyin'
across the room! There's no denyin'
that fart-powered pickles can fly!
Just drop yer drawers... Give it a try!

The MOAB has gone continental! So tell us, polaitaly, have you performed the sacred duty to be undertaken by all novice MOABites? In other words, have you read this piece of crap thread from beginning to end?

Here's a short quiz:

1) Whose bright idea was this piece of crap anyway?
2) With what common construction site appliance is CarolC often associated? (No! It's not an accordion!)
3) Why are Amos' posts so often indecipherable?
4) Why are Tweed's posts always indecipherable?
5) Explain the correlation between Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, The Holographic Theory of Learning, The MOAB, and Waffle House's recipe for grits. "

"1. King khandu's
2. Outhouses
3. Because he knows too much fer his own good.
4. Because he don't know enough nohow.
5. The MOAB comprises the maximal concentration of postulated uncertainties within a singular locus of space-time theoretically possible, because of the density of knowable wavicles it provides within minimum distance as described in the Holographic Theory of Learning. This includes all possible knowledge including the design of accordions designed to look like outhouses and vice-versa. But, mysteriously, it excludes the Waffle House recipe for grits because no-one has ever been able to understand it.

It amazes me we put these mysteries to bed so long ago, and yet they perpetually renew themselves. My theory about the perennial renewal of safe ignorance as a necessary component in evolution seems to bear a bitter fruit...

Jerome does get a little confused, doesn't he? I doubt there will be many animals left after the 15 cubits over the mountains flood; and then there is the earthquake that "does for" all animals - yet a couple days later Jerome has them gathering in the fields roaring.

Likewise, all stones and rocks will crack, but houses and bullding remain intact to be destroyed later? And somehow people survive to "leave their abodes" (which are now piles of dust anyway - so they really don't have any abodes to leave)

Cutting by the signs?

"It is written (Luke 21:25): "There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars," etc.

Further, Jerome [St. Peter Damian, Opuscul. xlix; he quotes St. Jerome, but the reference is not known.] mentions fifteen signs preceding the judgment. He says that on the "first" day all the seas will rise fifteen cubits above the mountains; in the "second" day all the waters will be plunged into the depths, so that scarcely will they be visible; on the "third" day they will be restored to their previous condition; on the "fourth" day all the great fishes and other things that move in the waters will gather together and, raising their heads above the sea, roar at one another contentiously; on the "fifth" day, all the birds of the air will gather together in the fields, wailing to one another, with neither bite nor sup; on the "sixth" day rivers of fire will arise towards the firmament rushing together from the west to the east; on the "seventh" day all the stars, both planets and fixed stars, will throw out fiery tails like comets; on the "eighth" day there will be a great earthquake, and all animals will be laid low; on the "ninth" day all the plants will be bedewed as it were with blood; on the "tenth" day all stones, little and great, will be divided into four parts dashing against one another; on the "eleventh" day all hills and mountains and buildings will be reduced to dust; on the "twelfth" day all animals will come from forest and mountain to the fields, roaring and tasting of nothing; on the "thirteenth" day all graves from east to west will open to allow the bodies to rise again; on the "fourteenth" day all men will leave their abode, neither understanding nor speaking, but rushing hither and thither like madmen; on the "fifteenth" day all will die and will rise again with those who died long before."

IFfen them's the signs old Harry did his cutting by, I reckon he must a been plumb tuckered out before he got home from it.

Henry V had a nice spread over around Burley, Amos. Few hundred head of beef (destined to become the roast beef of Merry Olde England), running the roof-bar or arrow brand: ^
                                     |
Sorta like that, with line attached to the ^. Silly brand, too easy to change with a running iron, and lots of his neighbors did just that. In fact, that's how the Diamond I, the X Over I, and the Rocking Rafter I got started.

It's said that Hank (as his hands called him) was a dab hand with a rope and he could ear-notch and cut a calf as fast as it could be branded. He used an double undercut ear-notch, by the way, and did his cuttin' by the signs.

Chaces, as Rapaire knows but does nt tell, are game preserves, from the French verb chasser, to hunt.

Not typical cowboy haunts. The last time someone from Idaho was on one, somewhere out in Somerset, he was invited on a hunt, and was disturbed at how coolly he was treated afterwards. Finally he asked the host if he had committed some social blunder. The host responded reluctantly, "Well, sir, when you sight your quarry over here, the usual thing is to yell out "Tally-Ho!!"--not, "There goes the sumbitch!!".

It's little known, but Henry V of England was a cowboy. Shakespeare himself proves this with Henry's speech in Act I, Scene II of "Henry V":

"...Tell him he hath made a match with such a wrangler
That all the courts of France will be disturb'd
With chaces."

Whether he was a header or a heeler, a dally man or tied hard and fast, we don't know now. But that he was involved with "chaces" and was a "wrangler" Henry V himself admits.
