See you in a bit.

True. There are few creatures more intense and determined than a dog protecting its home.

The Legionaires have gone. I bribed them by signing over this lovely offer I had from some kindly person in Nigeria (a Prince, no less!) to pay me 10% of their 185 million dollars if I just help them transfer the funds to my Canadian bank for some minimal transfer charges...a mere few thousand dollars. ;-)

They all went off, happy as can be! They're going to divide it up equally and refurbish the Legion Hall.

The dachshund bark should alert any invaders that their case is hopeless. My friend Susie (injured in January, almost back to herself now, but weak on the left side, kind of like a stroke) has a min pin at her house now. It is a step down from the 75-lb Labrador retriever (who now lives at my house), but this 13-lb dynamo has a piercing little bark that echoes at the door - alerting all to his size, but that doesn't work against him because it also conveys his passion for defending his house. I'm sure it is similar with your pooch.

That is soooo cute! What a lovely story.

Meanwhile... Help! My house has been surrounded by a geriatric mob of enraged Orillia Legionaires. I have barricaded the doors and windows here. The Dachshund is in a barking frenzy. We are preparing to repel boarders!

I know I have been harsh on Chongo and called him a worthless son of a bitch, and I was wrong. I have now learned he was only adopted, and not the natural offspring I had taken him for. Beart in mind these photos were from before he turned out bad, but still...

Ha! Chongo's life is far more vivid than the life at that silly legion.

Listen, I know. I've seen the Legion in my own town and other towns around here. Just a bunch of crabby old men sitting around gossiping about the past and glumly working on their mug of beer while they watch the world change inexorably outside the walls of their mouldering little fortress of memories. Ugly furniture, poorly maintained display cases with military memorabilia, poorly built models of World War II airplanes and ships by local amateur modelers, tarnished old medals once given for deeds long forgotten, old ladies with purple-tinted hair and those hideous glasses that come to points at the sides, the smell of stale beer and ancient tobacco patina all over everything...

Yuck.

I don't know nothing about that stuff either. I usually don't shoot anything bigger than, say, a Honda Fit. Gotta keep the ol' shootin' eye sharp!

Speaking of which, there was a shooting at the Legion Hovel last night. Seems like True Blue Red White got into it with Blacky Kohl. Blacky shot his mouth off, and so did TBR. Bartender finally used a bung starter to quiet both of 'em down and they went to sleep in each others arms like a pair of unwashed, unchanged babes.

Wonderful heavy rain yesterday - so today I must find and drain all standing water. You may have heard that we have West Nile in the area. Not around here so much, but it can move, I imagine. I'll make the area inhospitable with dry planters and mosquito dunks.

Tomorrow, then, the Bold Booqueman of Pocatello is heading out, bound east to penetrate the empty rolling hills that cuddle up to the grand Tetons and surround places like Laramie and Caspar, CHeyenne and Sheridan, where the ten-gallon hats go all the way to eleven.

Let us hope he may return unscathed by the noble savages, the wild scalpers, frontmen, hucksters, sharps and cutthroats of the irremediably vicious and violent indigenous Homo Blanco population.

gnu - I may be able to help you, specially if they are USA coins, as I'm more knowledgable about those. If they're gold or silver coins, I can definitely find out what they're worth, providing I know the condition they're in. The best thing is probably if you send me some photos and a detailed description of the dates, mint marks, etc. I'll pm you my email address and you can follow up on that.

Gold and silver bullion have gone way high in price in the last year, so it's probably a good time to cash in on old coins in those metals...although one can never be certain whether the value will still keep going up. The most well-informed people I know think gold and silver are over-priced right now and heading for a correction...but no one knows that for sure. Gold is at about $1600/oz now, down from a high of almost $1900 last year, and silver's at about $28/oz...which has put the raw bullion value of a lot of collector coins above the old collector value of same. Chris at the coin shop thinks gold ought to be priced at about $1200 at best right now if it were being priced realistically.

The really crazy thing is, though....no one can ever be 100% positive where the trend is going to go. It depends on a lot of unpredictable factors.

Most coins of circulated types from the last eighty years are of very little value, I was sorry to find out. We had about three kilos of them handed down in a shoebox from my father in law, including some interesting prewar francs, some Japanese Occupation army scrip, a whole kaboodle of pence and shillings, and some Chinese coins from before the Revolultion; somehow none of them appraised for much. We gave them to my son for safekeeping to start his son's collection, if he grew up to be interested.

LH... perhaps you could help me with the value of some coins. Maybe pics could work? if you have time. Of course, if they are worth anything, I'll give you a cut. Maybe ship them to you and you give me a cut? Just a few weeks ago, I found a 100 Franc (French) coin which is, alas, now worthless.

It's a quiet, lovely, balmy morning in Southern California. My great excitement is that yesterday I received my new Allen&Heath ZED-10FX Mixer and have wrangled my way through the forest of buttons and knobs enough to get it to record and playback via my media Mac running SoundStudio. No small feat considering how little I really know about the intricacies of sound engineering. I have a pro coming Sunday to walk me through optimizing the recording session.

There is hope!

I just got off the phone with a friend in the Bay Area (see, I really do know people in California besides Amos!). I haven't spoken with her in several years -- she went through some VERY tough time and is now in a powered chair. I got in contact again with her because her father died just last week -- a true legend Back Home, he was. She was also working for AIG when AIG fired everyone and then went under...they had literally begged her to come back to work there.

Lovely! Sounds like you had a great day. I had an interesting visit to the local coin shop (in Barrie)today, sold some old coins for a really decent price. The guy there is a true hobbyist, does it for the love of it, and pays you what the stuff is worth instead of ripping you off.

Given that I already know what the stuff is worth, having done quite a bit of research first, I've avoided getting shafted by various less scrupulous outfits of which there are many around these days. Chris gives me 85 to 90% of what he'll sell the same item for. The gold and silver shops that have sprung up all over will sometimes give uninformed (and most often elderly) people as little as 10 or 15% of what the item is really worth!

With this sort of thing, as with most things, it's best not to be in a hurry, but to spend some time investigating and getting a number of different quotes before making a decision.

Now if ONLY I still had that old Hula Hoop! ;-)

Of course, banter, especially silly banter, is always fun. Anybody got any?

I attended a small family reunion today. My cousin and I regaled the old folks with much silly banter and stoies of our perceptions of "life on Lower Robinson Street" from when we were tads. Prompted them to tell theirs. Didn't get around to the story of the penny matches and the fire. Good thing perhaps. Supper was beyond delicious. A true Acadian chicken dinner.

I find Chongo much realer than Rap's delusionary excesses. Why? Well, he's more modest, that's why. Rapparee needs to attend a self-help course to cure himself of monumental grandiosity.

As for you, Amos, your continued attacks upon poor Chongo do you no credit, but reveal a nasty undercurrent of specist prejudice that is as shameful as it is uncalled for. Only a heartfelt apology can clear the air. I hope you realize that, my good man.

Here's the rub, Rapp: the imagination which you claim is the figmenter of all of us figments itself, in truth, a figment of your imagination; the truth is that we are not, ourselves figments of your imagination, but rather that your impressions of us are figments of your figmentary imagination, which is a product, in turn, of your actual imagination. Not that it doesn't take considerable horsepower to dummy up a whole extra layer like that and then imagine everything into it, but much as I respect the heroic aspects of your delusion, it's a case of loving honor more and all that.
