My youngest brother played the Irish cop in that. As he was supposed to be charging up the staircase he missed a step and slid halfway back down. The audience thought it was part of the show, so he bowed and did it again -- without slipping.

Actually, if I understand the dynamics, the Great Climate Change will cause everything west of me to fall into the sea, while driving Idahar and nearby regions into desert-hood.

Folks in Idaho don't talk much about it, but we can shovel shit with the best of 'em. No sir, we don't talk about it, we just do it. In fact, the State motto, "Esto perpetua", means "Let it be eternal" and they were talking about shoveling shit when they made that up, too.

Now you take California's motto, "Eureka!" That's Greek for "I have found it!" and was first shouted by Archimedes when he was running around town naked. So you have Californians bragging about finding some shit but folks in Idaho actually doing the work.

But it is no matter. Global Worming is going to flood California and give Idaho beachfront property, probably just outside of Pocatello. And when Amos kayaks up I'll give him a cold beer and a warm welcome because Idaho people are known for their sympathy and care of the less fortunate, the miserable, the down-and-out, and SoCalians.

Are you one of those "real" men who would rather sit at your screen and brag than help a lady shovel dog poop in the rain? I thought as much.

Amos, you could visit me in Texas and put the kayak in my creek. It's at the bottom of the back yard. You can't travel far, but there's enough water to float a boat.

It's NEVER too cloudy to go kayaking in Idaho! In fact, you can kayak all year 'round: in the winter you just put runners on your kayak and try not to do any rolls. I'd bet anything that ol' Amos has never been kayaking in the blizzard, or when the temperature was -20F, or in a survival suit. These are experiences enjoyed only by a select few adventurers, REAL men and women who live Life to the fullest, who grab Enjoyment and throttle the hell out of it. In short, THESE are Idahoans...Idahoers...people who live in Idaho.

It rained nearly 2 inches yesterday afternoon, so MOM is out trying to get the dog poop scooped before it gets too hot out there. One of you boys go help her, would you?

Yes, I agree. Amos really needs a hobby. Perhaps philately or numismatics or wandering around the streets examining random pieces of trash while muttering to himself.

A guy was selling bags of tamales in the Supermercado Winco parking lot today. I passed up the opportunity, even though I've always like tamales. Schullian's Grocery, back in the day, used to make the best I've ever eaten. Schullian's -- a good German name!

"The Prince of Wales's feathers is the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales. It consists of three white feathers emerging from a gold coronet. A ribbon below the coronet bears the motto Ich dien (German for "I serve", a contraction of ich diene = ich dien' ). As well as being used in royal heraldry, the badge is sometimes used to symbolise Wales, particularly in Welsh rugby union and Welsh rugby league; however, its use as such is controversial and rejected by some Welsh nationalists as a symbol of the British monarchy rather than Wales.
A painted carving on the main gate of Oriel College, Oxford depicting the emblem of the Prince of WalesThe badge has no connection with the native Princes of Wales. It is thought to have originated with Edward, the Black Prince, the eldest son of Edward III of England. According to legend, the Black Prince obtained the arms from the blind John I of Bohemia, against whom he fought in the Battle of Crécy in 1346. After the battle, the prince went to the body of the dead king (whom he admired for his bravery) and took his helmet lined with ostrich feathers. The feathers and the dead king's motto made up the prince's new badge and came to be used by subsequent Princes of Wales

Rapaire:

I am glad to hear your explanation for what I have hitherto conceived to be merely brutal antisocial showing off. And although I suspect your explation is in large part pure rationalization for a bad habit, I applaud that you undertook to at least come up with something approximationg a rational syntax. However, I maintain that in showering your audience intentionally with globs of relative mystery and obscurity, you are not communicating with them, but manipulating them; and these difference is even underscored by your explanation.

It would be more help, rather than betraying the use of a communication line to transmit anti-communication, to inform and educate. Thus, bringing about understanding as a more direct result of your own communication rather than essentially slamming people for not understanding. No-one, even Thee, is of such beadth and depth of exposure and thought as to have no missing data on the world. Why make this a condition of manipulation, inferiority, or punitive scolding? Be of more help and you will be more helpful.

There Isn't Time! by Eleanor Farjeon

            There isn't time, there isn't time
            To do the things I want to do,
            With all the mountain-tops to climb,
            And all the woods to wander through,
            And all the seas to sail upon,
            And everywhere there is to go,
            And all the people, every one
            Who lives upon the earth, to know.
            There's only time, there's only time
            To know a few, and do a few,
            And then sit down and make a rhyme
            About the rest I want to do.

Amos, just because I Know Things Which You Don't Know is no reason that either you or I have to lower ourselves to explain to the ignorant. Ignorance is curable, and the best way is to make the ignorant Look It Up. As D. H. Lawrence once wrote,

"The last time I slept with the Queen,
She smiled as I whispered, "Ich dien."

I'm quite certain that you would know immediately that "Ich dien" is the motto of the Prince of Wales as well as meaning "I serve" and thus becomes a pun of two or more layers -- and still more if you include the phallic feathers. But neither your time nor mine should be spent explaining everything. Let the others have the joy of discovery and erudition just as we did.

Well, if no one wants to help I'll continue beheading the blown roses myself and you can all enjoy the color when they bloom a second time. It's the usual thing around here: I do all the work and others get all the enjoyment. My very blood was spilled in the job and this is the thanks I get!

Well, no more! I'm going to paint all the roses transparent! Like a crowded church or elevator, you'll get the odor but won't know where it's coming from!

So there!

Charles Henri Sanson, full title Chevalier Charles-Henri Sanson de Longval (February 15, 1739 - July 4, 1806) was the Royal Executioner of France in the court of King Louis XVI and High Executioner of the First French Republic. He administered capital punishment in the city of Paris for over forty years, and by his own hand executed nearly 3,000 people, including the King himself. Charles Henri Sanson was the fourth in a six-generation family dynasty of executioners. (Wikipedia)

Dear Stilly,
Come and take a virtual seat on my porch swing. The sprinklers are going and a fresh breeze is blowing from the northwest. It's probably about 80 degrees on this quiet breezy porch, and I have a whole pitcher full of icy cold raspberry lemonade. The raspberries were picked yesterday afternoon at the peak of freshness and the lemonade is just the right tartness. MOM's gone back in the house to take a nap, so we'll have the porch to ourselves. Did I mention humidity? It's about 7 percent right now, so it could be 20 degrees warmer and you still wouldn't feel sticky. I'll pour you a glass right now.

So The Nazz look at this little cat with the bent frame and he say "What's the matter wit' you, baby?" And the little cat with the bent frame, he say "Well, my frame is bent, Nazz- it's been bent from in front."

So The Nazz look at the little cat with the bent frame and he put the golden eyes of love on this here little kiddie and he looked right down into the windows of his soul and he say to the little cat, he say "Straighten!" The cat went up straighter'n an arrow and everyone jumpin' up and down and sayin' "Look what The Nazz put on that boy! You dug him before - dig him now!"

Amos, are you trying to turn this into a music thread?? You know Mom switches you for that! Of course, Bob Dylan reciting "Junior" Whitman does have a certain je ne sais quoi appeal to it. I think (Bob) Dylan doing Dylan (Thomas) might be interesting. Or maybe Dylan (Thomas) doing (Bob) Dylan. Difficult, I know, what with Dylan T. being dead and all, but I've heard that a good engineer can overcome all sorts of difficulties. If you overcome that, I'd also like to hear Shakespeare doing Shakespeare. Thanks!

Walt Whitman In Democratic Vistas, an 1871 prose work, writes,

I say we had best look our times and lands searchingly in the face, like a physician diagnosing some deep disease. Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States. Genuine belief seems to have left us. The underlying principles of the States are not honestly believed in (for all this glow, and these melodramatic screamings), nor is humanity itself believed in. What penetrating eye does not everywhere see through the mask? . . . . It is as if we were somehow being endowed with a vast and more and more thoroughly-appointed body, and then left with little or no soul.


Allen Ginsberg, asks, a century after the first publication of Leaves of Grass,

"America when will you be angelic?
When will you take off your clothes?
When will you look at yourself through the grave?"


The conversation is then taken up by the people who have brought you Levi's Blue Jeans since 1849, using Walt Whitman's voice from a cylindrical wax recording.
