I guess that depends on who's playing it. It doesn't have to always Bb.

You are confused, lad. You can peck an armadillo, but you should never arm a pecadillo.

I know my pecadilloes are behind me, some of them at least, but have the ones for'ard of me also been pardoned? Otherwise how am I to follow your decree, Pater Noster ipocriticer, not knowing when I am coming and when going?

This morning I went through the Windows Explorer route to the C directory and am glad to find my old files are there, set aside by the new Win7 operating system. It has been a job to set it up, but it is in place. Everything looks different, but I may not have to reinstall everything, or at least I can connect the new install with the old data.

I know you said you never wanted to hear about computer stuff, MOM, but it's better than than dwelling on having to euthanize the cat yesterday. (See the declutter thread for that story).

Anyone getting snowed on? Any more bullets turning up in Rap's office?

We'll go waltzing by the willows
Pardoning our pecadilloes,
If Jesus Christ can do it so can we.
Never let our hearts be hardened,
All our peccadilloes pardoned,
We at last shall find our spirits free!

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
    where there is Amos, let me sow love;
    where there is Amos, your pardon Lord;
    and where there's Amos, true faith in you;

    O Master,
    grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console Mom's other kids;
    to be understood, as to understand what the devil Amos is;
    to be loved, as to try to love Amos;
    for it is in giving Amos troubles that we receive joy,
    it is in pardoning his peccadilloes that we are pardoned,
    and it is in dying...wait, I ain't gonna do that.

I live in Calee-forn-eeay
On a San Dee-ay-gan claim
And I was happy as could be
Til ma outhouse slid away,
Out ta sea ma outhouse slid away.

Well, out here in Sandy Aygo
The skies are always blue
Cept sometimes the town burns up
Er a cougar cat will chew on you
Er a cougar cat will chew.

Sometimes the buildings all fall down
When the ground does rockenroll
But it's always warm and the skies er blue
When you wander through the town
Through the wreckage of the town.

I'd built ma outhouse not to sway
I'd built it fireproof
But it'd rained fer days and days
And ma outhouse slid away
With ma wife inside ma outhouse slid away.

It was last seen not far from shore
And ma wife was a-raising hell
I'd 'preciate it if you'd tow 'er back
Cuz I really need that door
Don't wann buy another door.

When I was a sprout I would have happily operated on one or both of my brothers. I carried a Boy Scout pocket knife I had specially sharpened just so I could do medical procedures on them, like saving their lives after a rattlesnake bite or an appendectomy or even a tracheotomy. Mom wouldn't let me get it really sharp because she was afraid I might hurt myself, so I sharpened it with edge 90 degrees to the whetstone.

Never got the chance, though. No cooperation at all from rattlesnakes or their appendices or anything. Totally ruined my childhood, not being able to save my brothers' lives by amputating a cannonball-shattered leg.

I posted again yesterday and it vanished. Darn.

Son ended up at emergency room with gut pain early in the morning. His dad called, and we thought it was his usual migraine, and they would tell us so, so I didn't go down. We'd tried to get this diagnosed a couple of other times in years past but the emergency room at the children's hospital is so busy that the pain would pass before we got in to be seen, so we left. So the theory was a less busy hospital would be able to tell us it was a migraine.

The surgeon told us he had a slight elevated white count and the appendix (after a CT scan) was a little large, though it could be a normal size because it was within the normal range on the large side. He wanted to do an appendectomy that afternoon. Son had been on morphine for a while, he was in a lot of pain, but he was also really constipated. Full bowel with surgery? No problem, the surgeon says. We were skeptical, and decided that since he had a range of a few days before this might become critical if it was an appendix problem, we'd take him home and use the laxative the surgeon said he could take. Including that bottle of citrus salty stuff you take before surgery. It took that overnight, but it worked. And I don't think taking out the appendix "so if he gets this again, you can rule out appendicitis" is a good reason for subjecting a kid to abdominal surgery.

Duh. We need to make sure he has more roughage in his diet. I was slipping last week, and I think that was the culprit.

Okay, back to the regular BS. The Appendectomy S-blocked bowel has now been remedied.

It's okay, Janie. My nnnerves have ssssetttled down adquit a byttt.

Actually, I never was nervous or shaken. It was done, it was over, and I mostly wanted to figure out what happened to the lights. We had a problem with a breaker burning itself up about two weeks ago and I was more concerned with that than anything else. It was only after the electrician found the bullet I REALLY knew what had happened -- and if it was fired in my direction the shooter needs lessons.

My office sits behind a wall of good, honest BRICK, sir. Two or three courses of it. The hole in the drywall was in the wall that was put up to divide the old stacks area into rooms back in about 1992. Heck, part of my office is behind the (blocked, non-functioning) fireplace.

Bro's thought was somebody on the "bridge" between the old and new buildings popping a round through the open door to Administration and angling it so it went through the open door to my office (I really do have an open door policy!). I'm going to look at angles, sight lines, and the security camera tapes on Monday.

If that doesn't turn up anything, well, I'll just write it off as the time the 1907 building shot itself.

My very own younger brother thinks someone tweaking on meth used a .380 (9mm short) to take a shot in my direction through my open door. He's retired from the IL state police, so he thinks that way. If it happens again I'll asssume that is the case and move my office. Electricians get pricey.

I'll check the sight lines and security cameras on Monday.

It was fired and the copper jacketing and lead core were mashed where they hit the conduit. We have not found the cartridge case, which I suspect is in pieces somewhere inside the wall. I will admit that I own a .357 magnum, which will fire .38 rounds, but I don't carry it except to the range, it's a gate-loader revolver, and it's single action (you have to cock the hammer each time you shoot, like all good cowboys did). Ann was sitting in my office, facing me. She would probably have noticed if I was holding one of these.

We're writing off as one of the Library's mysteries. If it happens again, well...maybe that's a sign From Above that I best git outa Dodge.
