He also said I have been mispronouncing his name lo these many years, and it should rhyme with rapparee. I an gob-smacked. All those poems shot to hell! But I am going to stick to my guns and insist he change his spelling if he wants it pronounced differently. It just ain't right to spell it Rapaire ad expect anyone to know his secret pronunciation.

I had dinner with Rapaire last night, Mom. I don't think he enjoyed himself very much -- he told many tales of courage, glory, humor and accomplishment on the part of other people, and we drank a bottle and a half of vin rouge and sang some obscure sea songs and such. Maybe he did like it, but he said he has given up liking things or disliking them for Lent. So it was hard to tell. But I had a very good time!

The thread, mayhap, amigo. But the BS Protestant Book of Ordinary Hymns is as old as BS Protestation itself, which goes back much further, and so understandably it has many more pages.

Hi, Mom! Gotta run to Dallas to get an old friend who flew in from Arizona then head up to Denton to pick up Moonglow and her boyfriend and take them to lunch, then bring Moonglow and my friend back here this evening.

The important part of the message being that I am going to go drive in Dallas. Yuck.

Stand up, stand up for Mother!
Ye soldiers of BS!
Let not her numbers falter,
Nor fade, her noble dress!
From topic unto topic
Her whackos she will lea-ead.
'Til everyone is slack-jawed
And BS rules indeed!

Wierd hearing you talk about possible "snow day" when we haven't had any yet - and that is unusual!!! We often have a good storm or two before Halloween, let alone December!!!

After getting up at the regular time he played computer games for a while, but I made him do all of his homework in the middle of the day before he went back to them, so it wasn't as much a holiday as he might have liked. Now he's in practicing his guitar, and I can hear him making progress. He's doing the lessons from his teacher and he's doing some of his own thing--which is as it should be.

Ooops, MOM! You slipped out there! Careful, let me help you up!

I kept my son home from school today, even though the schools were open. I called him in sick so it wouldn't be called an unexcused absence. It looked like it was going to get really icy, and since I have to drive a lot further than most parents, and since his Dad has been out of town and might not make it back because of the weather, I figured I didn't want him home alone at his Dad's (where he catchest the bus in the morning). It has fizzled after some freezing rain and snow. Accumulations on the grass and garden, but not on the street. Looks like the district called it (but my university closed--there are so many commuters that they no doubt figured they wouldn't have many show up). Oh, well. I'll feel guilty for a little while--he's a good student and hasn't missed any other days and every day is important.

And I have indeed done hard time shoveling snow, helping stranded motorists out of a ditch, learning to control four-point skids, and other tribulations concomitant with living in a refrigerator five months of the year. This is one of the reasons I am content to reside in San Diego, where the living is a tad more laid-back by reason of our sunshine, and the salaries proportionately lower.

My childhood in Connecticut was alleviated by the Great Indoor Sport of listening to a kitchen AM radio for school closing notices during white, bright snowstorm mornings. Like playing keno -- you only won occasionally but it made your whole day when you did.

Have any done hard time shovelling snow?

Ooooo--I hear the thunder arriving! Rapaire's cold air from Idaho is running hard into the hot warm air from the Gulf of Mexico. Ker-POW! And tomorrow we're supposed to have bad weather, but I'd better get up at the normal time anyway to see if school is open or not, or if the cold and ice or sleet materialized. When it comes to anticipating snow days, there are usually more disapointments than anything else. Usually because the weather failed to advance sufficiently.

The Idaho Legion will not be coming. In fact, they're having a hard time getting out of the Hovel right now. The groundsman, Swoopin' Sammy, got a bit too thorough in his duties last night. Sammy ran the snowblower (we've had some snow here!) and cleared the parking lot, hitching post area, and hitchiking area right down to bare pavement. Unfortunately, he did this while most member were meeting inside the Hovel and because of his lack of familiarity with the discharge chute controls he managed to bury the Hovel and everyone in it under about 10 feet of snow.

Rescue attempts are being considered.

Dear Rapaire:

I read 'most every word you said
That streamed out from your fevered head
Each phrase and line, succinctly laid,
Advising me to be afraid.

Alas, although I find it queer,
I do not feel a trace of fear!
Not jot, nor tittle even wiggle!
Nothing appears but a muted giggle.

So though it's true, you are no stranger
I must remark, your sense of danger
Must have been bred in some dank mine,
Some place where sunlight never shines.

But when we meet, which will be soon,
You'll sing (I hope)a different tune,
And soon, on generous Bacchus' breast,
Your fears of danger lay to rest.

If not, the God will be annoyed!
And it will be hard to avoid
His wrath, as from his Godly void
He labels you a paranoid!

Kindest regards,

Amos

Here's a limerick that can only be appreciated by a post-hole digger:


A fencer who was plagued by a vole
Thought he'd sever the pest from its soul.
With a jab and a lunge
The vole's soul he expunged,
But he suffers post-trauma, post-hole.

You callin' me a mole hole, boy? Well, just for your information I have VOLE holes in my yard, not your common old MOLE holes.

Oh, wait. Sorry. You said "mohel" -- the guy who only works for tips as long as he can get a cut of your action. No, I used an epee with a string-wrapped French grip and a steel blade. Blunt tip, of course; these modern rules take all the fun out of it. "Wear a mask, be sure your jacket and plastron will withstand a hit of blah-blah Newtons, use blunt tips covered with a rubber or plastic..."

Wimps, every one of 'em. Why, back in the days when I started fencing you used a sharpened blade and sharp point, and by God you KNEW when you make a touch! And none of this "protective clothing" either because you fenced in your street clothes! And we were civil, too! We saluted our opponents and shook hands after it was over. Not like today, by crackey! A man wasn't a man then until he'd been in a few...what's that, nurse? Time for my meds? Okay...

I think that I shall never see
A Ra as handsome as is me.

A Ra that is a God all day,                 
And will fleece the supplicants who pray;        

A living God who may in summer wear        
A golden head dress on his hair;        

Who down in lovely muck has lain,        
Happy, 'til he rose again.

Of grand delusions, wild and faire
The Master, here, is bold Rapaire
Who often dreams himself a star,
Or leading Foreign Legions far,
Or fancies he is twirling twine
Upon some cattle-pony's spine.

But of all these grand delusions, one
Has beaten all the rest for fun --
Being the ancient God of Sun!
There's nothing quite so lahdeedah
As walking 'round dressed up as Ra!

And none who do it with the flair
Brought to the vision by Rapaire!
His swiveling hips and God-like gaze
Are certain all the Board to faze,
Though they may think such fearsome looks
Were better used procuring books.
