No, he could be picked up for decent exposure if gawking was involved. No sense in jailing him when he's pickled.

I was deliberately playing the straight man and just "playing dumb" when I pretended not to know why you were counting, Amos, and you rose marvelously to the bait. The question is, what do I do with you now that I have caught you? Should I throw you back? Should I fry you up in a pan on the campfire? Should I freeze you for later?

Decisions, decisions...

What sort of shoe was it? Mule? Horse? Stiletto heel? Bog boot? Calked logging boot? Saddle? Clog? Wooden?

Enquiring minds want to know!

IF yon Hawk had not put his shoe firmly into his mouth a ways upthread, he'd not now speak with two tongues, all unlaced, and ground down in the sole.

I wasn't aware that the sands of time were scrofulous. I'd made them out of plain old multitemporal silicon dioxide. Is medical intervention necessary? Could this be a source of plague? Glory be to me!

If you did swan, you wouldn't get it right. You would probably goose instead. You might even crow or start raven...

In short, sir, you are a chuckle-headed dolt, a fizzlewit, a capering dunce, a maleficent cutpurse, a wretch devoid of redeeming qualities, the very antithesis to both puissance and grace, a mere drifting shadow upon the scrofulous sands of time. Get thee hence and trouble me no more.

Tried asserting his means were heuristical

Proved him most ignor-ant
Of methods and precepts statistical.

I find that talking with myself is very productive.

Amos, it is obvious
That probability you ignore
For you could burst into flames
Just walking through your door.
It could snow in San Diego
Or the weather could be nifty
For the chances of anything happening
Is always fifty-fifty.

I did too, Don. It turned out to be molten lava and then an earthquake blocked the way I came it. But I had the strength of ten because my heart was pure and I blew until that lava cooled down. Then, using only my fingernails, I dug my way out and onto the sunny side of the street...where I got badly sunburned and now have skin cancer.

I had my eyes examined yesterday. The doctor was shining a bright light into my dilated eyes, telling me to look this way and that. Finally I said, "If I look straight ahead I see a bright light!" He replied, "Just don't move toward it."

Substitute bluebird for ortolan in this recipe.

Ortolans are solitary birds: they fly in pairs, rarely three together, and never in flocks. They are taken in traps, from March or April to September, when they are often poor and thin; but, if fed with plenty of millet-seed and other grain, they become sheer lumps of fat, and delicious morsels. They are fattened thus in large establishments in the south of Europe; and Mr. Gould states this to be effected in Italy and the south of France in a dark room.

The Ortolan is considered sufficiently fat when it is a handful; and is judged by feeling it, and not by appearance. They should not be killed with violence, like other birds; this might crush and bruise the delicate flesh, and spoil the coup d'ceil - to avoid which, the best mode is to plunge the head of the Ortolan into a glass of brandy.

Having picked the bird of its feathers, singe it with the flame of paper or spirit of wine; cat off the beak, and ends of the feet; do not draw it; put it into a paper case soaked in olive oil, and broil it over a slow fire. It will not require such afire as would do a steak; slack cinders, like those for a pigeon a la cravaudine, being sufficient; in a few minutes the Ortolan will swim in its own fat and will be cooked. Some gourmands wrap each bird in a vine-leaf.

Gluon is definitely responsible for the patch of missing lawn...and earth. Damned duckdog "went outside" and now I can see clear through to the other side. The whole place is swarming with physicists, geologists, and all sort of odd types -- one of the astronomers wants to put a lens on each end and make a telescope! Why can't that damned duckdog scratch dirt on the pile like the rest of 'em?

MOM! Are you hungry? Aren't any of the others up yet to check on you? I'll start a batch of blueberry muffins. I imagine they'll wander in and want to share your breakfast with you.

I bet the oven mitt is on the floor because of Zeke, not Gluon. But the fact that the kitchen light comes on and sparkles like a carnival ride, flying around the room, is because of Gluon.

I'm sure gnu wouldn't like Texas. We don't really have winter here, not like Canukistan. That would mean Zeke would be retrieving him all day long, little slow-down for bad weather. Most of the dog toys are in the yard, though I will be making a bin in the living room to keep him focused on "his" toys and leave the rest of the house alone. It's a big brass pot I used to keep a houseplant in. Comfy for sleep? I think not. . .

I know that's not interesting at all but fuggit, I don't care. That's just the mood I am in.

After seeing the doc... blood tests? ... CAT scan and then maybe an MRI? Friday the 13th? Yeah right. I'll bet I won't even win the lotto super 7 tonight. And then I'll have to wait a dog's age to get the tests done. What a shitty day.
