In early 2001, New Mexico's law making cohabitation illegal was repealed. The bill passed the Senate by a 26-5 vote, went through the House, and was finally signed by Governor Gary Johnson. The action followed charges against a couple living together in Los Lunas by the ex-wife of the man. The case drew national attention and was eventually dismissed in April 2000.

The law, enacted in 1963, made it theoretically illegal for couples to live together if they were not married. It had not been used for decades, however. The issue was last raised in 1987 and 1988 when a sheriff of Catron County and subesequently a reverend of Rio Rancho asked for it to be enforced. Their suggestions faded as they were told this was impossible.

The five senators who voted against the bill said they were doing so to strenghten families and marriage. They wanted the cohabitation law to be stricter, if anything.

Other states with such laws are Arizona, Idaho, Florida, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Go on, admit it - you've always wanted to haven't you? Perhaps not, but what if I told you that it's not just apes but those perennial favourites of enlightened humanity, monkeys, who have developed this enlightened way of devouring the humble banana? Yes, it's time we humans took that final step in our evolution - ironically by imitating our simian siblings! So, you ask, how exactly do I eat a banana like a chimp?

Chances are, if you pick up a banana with intent to eat it, you'll peel it by grabbing the stalk and ripping it downwards, then peeling down the other flappy bits. If that is your intention, stop now! Take a leaf (no pun intended) from the chimp's book. Basically, chimps eat bananas sideways, by bending the banana slightly (usually in the direction of its natural bend) until the skin splits, revealing the precious yellow inner. The fruit is then easily retrievable from its case, thus facilitating its transfer into one's mouth.

Why? WHY??

This is all well and good, but why bother? Well, let me ask you, why do you bother peeling bananas the way you do? As usual, it is all pure social conditioning! The way you peel bananas now is more work than the beautifully simple chimp method. Face it - chimps spend their lives surrounded by bananas, swinging joyously from banana tree to banana tree and eating bananas. They are banana experts! They know how bananas tick. Splitting the banana sideways in one swift action is not only much easier than peeling all the flaps from the top, but is also scientifically proven to greatly reduce the number of stringy bits you have to get off afterwards. Rigorous scientific testing has also proven this method to make the banana actually taste better!

As well as saving you precious life energy and producing a more pleasant eating experience, eating a banana like a chimp is less embarrassing than the usual, slightly phallic method. Plus, if you practise regularly, you get to eat loads of bananas! Bananas are good for you.

You've got it all wrong, Ed!

Canadians say "out".

Scots say "oot".

Americans say "aaaowwwwwwwwyyyyt" (make it really nasal like a halfwit Ozark hillbilly and you get the full effect.)

The Canadians and the English are, in fact, the only English-speaking people who pronounce "out" the way it should be pronounced. ;-)

My outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

When I awoke this a mornin' the rain was a pouring down
I was gonna wed the little river girl
just over the bridge across town

Now I'm a runnin' up and down the river
and my nerves are driving me wild
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and, I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

Oh rain oh rain stop fallin'
dark clouds hurry from the sky
The preacher and my bride are waitin'
and the weddin' bells are startin' to chime

I can't kiss and hold her
and it's drivin' me out of my mind
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

Yeah I got one foot in the river
one foot solid on the ground
I try to swim that ragin' ol' river
but I know if I try I'd drown

There's not a boat around me
they walked on out with the tide
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim
and my baby's on the other side

Yeah rain oh rain stop fallin'..
Cause my outies wheels fell off
and I can't swim

Actually that was a paraphrase of a childhood poem, in which the little elf-man insists he is just as big for him as the narrator is "for you".


I had completely forgotten thatpoem until LH reminded me.


I met a little Elf-man once

Down where the lilies blow.

I asked him why he was so small,

And, why he didn't grow.


He slightly frowned, and with his eye

He looked me through and through.

'I'm just as big for me,' said he,

'As you are big for you!'

: How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.

Quote, George Washington Carver, Inventor, Educator and Agricultural Researcher, known for his work with products using peanuts, 1864-1943

Agricultural chemist, George Washington Carver discovered three hundred uses for peanuts and hundreds more uses for soybeans, pecans and sweet potatoes. He start popularizing uses for peanut products including peanut butter, paper, ink, and oils beginning in 1880. The most famous of Carver's research took place after he arrived in Tuskeegee in 1896. However, Carver did not patent peanut butter as he believed food products were all gifts from God. The 1880 date precedes all [eanut butter inventors, except the Incas, who were first. It was Carver who made peanuts a significant crop in the American South in the early 1900's.

When the toll crept down to sixty-six,
The tired sons of Mother
Were growing faint and querulous
And snapped at one another.
Their tongues were sharp, their tempers frayed,
As might happen the same to you,
And their weary ears were tired of
The number, "32".

They'd done their turn, worked through the night,
And through the follering day.
Their backs were sore, their pants were worn,
And they still weren't all the way.
So you cannot blame those noble folk
For feeling sharp, that way.
They'd earned it all, in the service of
The thirty-two of Kay.

Stilly, you've been around long enough to know that it's the "freds" with a lower-case "f". But I would be at all surprised at your deduction: "ed" is half of "fred" and the "t" is just camouflage. Although, I suppose, freds might use letters as surnames or hive identification or something. Perhaps "Ed T" is actually telling us he's only half fred, like Spock was half Vulcan. We would have to investigate what the other half was, and given that he dropped the "fr" I suspect one of his parents was FRench and he's ashamed of it. The "t" would have to refer to Tau Ceti, in which direction his other parent came.

Now we have determined the "line" to the home planet of the freds! And all thanks to Ed T.

It's my guess that Ed T is under the influence of the Freds. He may even be one. Trying to ingratiate himself into the MOAB homestead. I get it now: through the looking glass, seeing Chinga as a male, it's more than a yin/yang thing. It's faulty interpretive software.

The count was down to seventy-eight
When the wind began to blow.
The red dust flew to the skies on high
And ruined our hopes below.
The air was thick as an old brick wall
And it slammed our bones with pain.
And we thought we'd never gain a yard,
Or ever post again.

And every hand who could even move
Was huddled behind a rock
As the wind blew through like a hurricane
No hand of man could block.
We was lying low, ducking from that blow,
And we feared we'd starve in the dark.
When through the screaming gloom appeared
A figure, tall and stark.

We heard him scream into that blow,
"Goddam your eyes and all!"
And saw him stagger to the rail,
Stumble, and lurch, and fall.
And we saw him scramble and rise again
And grab the line and cuss,
Hammering down in that screaming squall,
"Gimme 32 Kay, or bust!"

Then that shadow yelled like a fiend from hell
And he grabbed a rail and hauled
While his clothes were shredded and his skin was too,
By the force of that awful squall.
And the hands looked out as that rail went down,
And he hammered it onto the ties.
And they wept to see old Amos win,
Or from wind and dirt in their eyes.

So another chain was laid out true
In the face of that living hell,
And the winds went home, cuz they knew the truth,
They'd been beat, any man could tell.
So the hands crept out as the wind died down
And a couple of chimps joined the fray.
And they all turned to with a post or two,
For the sake of 32 K.

Indeed he is a bit on the feminine side....but, felt it might toughen up, like Johnny Cash suggested in the song.

I had considered adding a bit of Portland mixture to his swill. But, I reasoned it may cause skin irritation, and would take too much time suiting him up with all the safety gear.....the sideshielded goggles, akali-resistant gloves, high waterproof boots and coveralls with long sleeves and full-length trousers and duct taping it all to his boots to keep mortar and concrete off shis furry skin.

And, he does wear contacts, and the dust may irritate his eyes. It is a task getting those contacts in and out every day.

Now don't get me wrong. The creature can't read that well, expecially with the eye condition. But, I read bed time stories to him each night. He prefers the ones I shared with you, rather than the normal monkey bed time stories....that fill the shelves at Corporate book sellers, like Chapters.

Ed,

You can name your chimp anything you wish, of course; but let me just comment that names ending in "a" tend to be feminine. Chongo to this day repudiates his sister. She is biding her time, because the last thing she needs in her growing business is an alcoholic simian. Especially one with a gun. But in the fullness of time, Chinga knows, sooner or later, Chongo will appear in one of her bordellos. This is one of the reasons she expanded from Milwaukee to Chicago. And when the despicable sod walks in looking for some hootch or some kitty-action, you know, all her bruisers, bouncers, leaners-on and other henchmen know exactly what they have to do. And they all have copies of a faded family photo. So there will be no mistake, and bones WILL be broken.

Exactly why I named him Chinga, from yer past posts.    I got my Chinga (maybe I could call him currently known as Chinga", CKAC, so as not to confuse you MOAB folks. Let me know) from a salesman at the local feed mill. I first saw him through the car window, he gave me the finger....that convinced me we had to be friends. Kind of treminded me of meeting my wife for the first time. She was fiesty too.

Another reason for the name reminded me of my wife, Linda. She ran off with the Watkins man. I didn't notice the affair she was havin' 'til it was too late....but, as I lool back, the signs were there....she was buying so much lemon pie mix, without making any pies...the cupboards full of the stuff.

Think I'll pass in reading all the colourful posts you three or four (plus) folks put thogether from the depths of your minds and keys over the past few years. Chinga has to be taken care of....and he just got into a package of prunes....off to Walmart to stock up on diepies.

Chinga, not to be confused with yours likes to read my posts on how things works....like rubber and pumps...puts him to sleep.
