Amos came a knockin again after I posted. Couldn't find his hat. I searched upstairs and he downstairs. No hat. I figure he packed in his kit before he left and will find it soon enough... or it's in the car... on accounta I did a thorough search of everywhere he was. I even got under the cellar steps to see if it was there.

He told me to mail it to him if I did find it. Hahahaha! Not fuckin likely! He'll have to come back for it. And I'll make him entertain again before he gets it.

Yes... I am still atwitter AND agog.

They forgot 4 beers. Busch. Oh, I spotted them and thought I should say, "Don't ferget yer beers." Hahahahaa! Not fuckin likely! It's not bad. I'd say it's clear and bright as mountain air. Better, actually on accounta it's free.

Amos now has hair on his chest. I didn't see it, of course, nor would I want to. He said my Kent County tea would "put hair on your chest". Yup. I gotta wear a large size t-shirt from drinkin it.

Gee whiz... so many thought are whizzing thru my mind. A pisser of an eve and this AM was filled with laffs too.

Thank you, Amos and Gabe.

It's a damn shame that Amos could not have made it over to the Blind River area to meet Shane and Don, then down to Orillia to hang out with me and the other players here. Shane could have taken him to see Seldom Seen Road, for gosh sakes! Hardly anyone has ever seen it, but it's still there.

Eight hours ago, I wrote at FB...

WELL! THAT WAS FUN! I have seen and heard Amos on You Tube and thought he was great. Listening to him in my living room actually was "studio quality" stuff. As if I was there while he was recording. Wonerful geetar and rich voice.... RICH voice. The lads have sacked out. I am wired... still all atwitter and agog as I don't get much company unless someone like Amos insists (long story). I even was given permission to touch his geetar! All I did was check out the action from end to end with thumb and forefinger.... sweeeet! I even got a few pics! His bro is an amazing artisan and a cool dude. We had a lot of laughs. Amos actually got me to play a wee bit of Hran and.... sing with him. I haven't done either in years and I kinda think the little I could do was appreciated. Then again, ya know them Yanks eh, chante ma pomme la, eh? Damn! I ain't gonna get to sleep for a while yet.
*******************************************************************

I just had big goodbye hugs with Amos and Gabe. What a HOOT! What a night. Many laughs. Many stories. And You Tube vids of Amos pale in comparison to having a front row seat 8' from the stage in a living room. The richness of the voice will echo in my head for a long time... he even sounded good with the shower on and the door closed this AM. (EJ... you'll have to email him. He is at Tim's gettin coffee and then on his way... he had to return from the car which had to be moved at 6AM due to street construction to ask for directions to the highway... heheheee!) Oh what a night!

I realize it is 12 hours before MOM would drop off the bottom but on the screen she is third from the edge right now. Time to give her a boost back up.

I'm tearing up the inside of the closet to get just the right amount of space for some of the shelves I'm putting up. I'll go back to my bent nails and sawdust now.

You're welcome!

Grovel, wretch, grovel.

You don't have any IDEA what goes on in libraries all the time. Did you know, that according to a survey taken by very respected librarian, more librarians have had sexual encounters in elevators than any other segment of the US population? 'Tis true. Some speculate that this is the case because librarians can't afford a hotel room during conferences. Others say...well, us your imagination.

But librarians know how to keep their secrets and only talk about Certain Subjects with the Elect, not the Great Unwashed Masses.

Bosque is forest in Spanish. Wonder if that is a corruption in Maine-ese?

Library reorganization without resolving some former job and pay issues is a bitter pill for a lot of people, me included. Instead of paying a fair salary by writing the former job classification to actually fit the work some of us were doing, management thinks they can hit a reset button and wherever you end up is what you're paid for, and the adjusted salary they should have been paying you is gone. Forgotten. Pisses me off.

I am nestled in the bosky dells along the banks of the placid summer Penobscot Bay, watching the sun color the water gold and listening to gulls and tree winds. Ity is most benign. I have been revisiting old haunts in the Boothbay Habah region which has had an odd effect on my mind, confusing the present differences with the ancient similarities that never change on the granite coast. Delightful reveries. Beasutiful summer weather.

You take offense, Rap, at me saying librarians are boring in light hearted banter and certainly in jest? Why, all and sundry know what goes on in libraries after the doors are barred and the shades drawn. Decorum and shushes cease and bebauchery and mayhem begin. When confronted with choosing between being at "happy after hours" at a library or a morgue, I would always choose the library.

Tongue lashing? That was a punishment reserved for only the most egregious and anti-social wretches in ancient Ireland. Many of Shane's forbears, the notorious McBrides of Dangle, suffered public tongue lashings, for example. Others suffered execution. They eventually fled Ireland after having enraged almost everyone and sought refuge and a new start in North America. The seed was thus planted on our shores that has since flowered in none other than Shane McBride and his brother Don who reside in Blind River, Ontario. It is they who must carry the McBride legacy on to great new heights in the 21st Century.

I started a cleanup of my office/apartment 8 years ago, figgerin' I'd tackle it a bit at a time so as not to wear myself out. Operation Enduring Liberation, I called it. It ain't done yet. Matter of fact, I think it's provin' to be about as winnable a proposition as the USA presence in Afghanistan!

I am plannin' to make a strategic disengagement and a complete cessation of all further cleanin' attempts in 2014, declare "victory", and hope no one notices that the place looks a hell of a lot worse than it did when I started the old "cleanup" campaign.

That's the kind of weather where Chongo sits morosely in his walk-up office/apartment, trying to keep cool with an electric fan and a cold drink. His air conditioner hasn't worked in years, despite being threatened with summary execution by .45 cal if it doesn't shape up. He sweats and glowers. His apartment gets hot as hell on sunny days, because it's on the 3rd floor and the roof is not well insulated in the least. Eventually he can't take it any more and he heads down to street level and goes off to Murphy's Bar for a few cold ones.

I don't think I've actually ever seen ocotillo in Texas. It's a Sonoran Desert plant, Texas is Chihuahua Desert (and prairie that is hot-as-hell).

There have been several Keystone Kops kinds of forays across the border over the years, not just from Texas. There was one from Arizona that went badly (I'd have to look it up, I think it was pre-Gadsden, 1853.)

It's only forecast to be 98 today! I do love it when cold fronts pass through.

Hmm. Amusing! They sound like a bunch of disorganized pirates and freebooters rather than anything that could have been dignified with the term "military expedition". Mexico may well have been better off without them....though not without Texas itself, which was a valuable piece of territory.
