AT LAST!!!

I asked the Online Oracle (see another thread) and got The Answer!!!

Your question was:
Is Shame McBride a hermaphrodite?

THE ORACLE answers:

Maybe.


All is now clear!!!! All that is needed is a medical exam, if you can get a doctor who touch him, even inside a decontamination suit.

So does your Manne of Booques, but he's shy and retiring and can't remember the words so he might sometime make them up as he goes. E.g.:

Rise again, rise again
So her flour won't be lost
To the tastebuds of men
All those who love pie best
And were with her at the end
Will make the something something something do something again.

Or

Come all ye people, come gather round
La dee da da dee da dee da dee dound
Dum dum diddle diddley dum, I can't remember the words.

Or

The moon it shone down on old Dublin Town
When the deadly fight was o'er.
Thousands lay on the cold, cold ground
Sure to get a bad cold.
The moon it shone down on O'Connell Street
Where a purse full of gold guineas lay
Awaiting the next person to come along
And empty it with his mates in the nearest pub.

I have had an exhausted day recovering from a day in a tin tube cruising at 30,000 feet or whatever the right number is. I have to say I have become very impressed with North Carolina. We even got an evening with Chance and Suzette Shiver before we all crashed late Tuesday night. Wednesday dawn it was farewell to Micca, Chance, Suzette, off to Charlotte, while Dani and I headed to the airport and I set off to cross the continent in cramped quarters.

Betweent he Getaway's transcendent emotional and spiritual experience (they have excellent spirits) and the hospitality of Janie and Dnai I was most reluctant to leave the East, and between the sleep deprivation and the overburn of B complex, I am duly staggered my first day home.

But the music!! The voices, few and many, piping thin as a flute and crashing as strong as a hurricane of sound--the music I shall never forget or outlive.

Our Manne of Emms has the most wonderful voice. He should make records.

Just thinking, gnu...what if we had a worldwide cataclysm that killed about 2/3 to 3/4 of the population, knocked out our power grid and transportation systems, and reduced the scattered survivors to something like a stone age existence.

What would happen to that kitchen thingie you just bought?

Maybe some scientists would find it 10,000 years from now and have to speculate on whether it was:

- a religious artifact
- a ceremonial object
- an art object
- a weapon of some kind
- etc.

They'd advance theories about it. The one who found it would get it named after him. It would sit in a glass case in some museum.

Why would this come to my mind? Danged if I know, but it did.

Got my new toy. But I got a black one instead of a white one because they only had one and it was black. Well, it's still black but now they don't have any black ones either.

I shall arrange a connection to electrical power for it tomorrow and take it for a spin and put er through the paces, eh, and she if she's the horse she's supposed to be. BIG batch a fish cakes and then pizza dough and then maybe some asphaltic concrete for patching my driveway... I can get my money back within 30 days if I am dissatisfied in any way.

A Bridge Between ~ Northern Italy Come Hell or High Water [Kindle Edition]
Velia Pola

Publication Date:October 1, 2012
In the middle of the night in a darkened airport, a tiny voice inside her head taunted her. "Do you know where your mother is?" The voice began to shriek. "I am the caregiver."

Traipsing off to visit her 91-year old father's ancestral village in northern Italy, the author, more Peter Pan than Mary Poppins, is an unlikely caregiver and in over her head escorting her elderly parents. In an endearing memoir, alternately light hearted and soulfully tearful, the family travels far beyond the picturesque backdrop of northern Italy, breaking ground on what has become a universal journey for millions of adult children?caring for the parents who raised them. They barely keep their heads above water in Venice, do battle with Comacchian eel on the Adriatic coast and play a harried game of hide and seek in Ravenna. They nourish their bodies and souls in Emilia-Romagna, best a belligerent agent in Bellagio and reflect on love and loss in winter's shadow on Lake Como. From Venice to Savona, vivid landscapes and historic venues blend with lessons from the author's childhood in a crash course on aging with grace and determination.

As a generation of baby boomers confronts the long-term care of their parents, A BRIDGE BETWEEN transcends the role of travelogue to become a socially relevant love story of devotion, acceptance, and the evolution of familial relationships.




She did a good job.

I attended a Makem (yeah) in Deer Lake, NF with some buddies from a construction job back in the 80's. The foreman said, "Dat b'y 'as a t'roat on'n like a gannet sir!" Indeed. When your chest reverberates with the sound from lungs like mine did in row four, you are in the presence of an AMAZING voice.

Seen him many times. Helped get a concert performed here on one of his tours as he and his agent didn't understand the largest percantage (about 35%) of our province's population is of Irish decent (yeah). And, a large portion of the French population (about 30% of the total) share the same musical heritage because of the Celt "influence" in northern France.

Thanks Rap.

I saw the piper at the front door of the church as soon as I turned from the pall bearers' pew and said to myself, "I'm good until he plays. I'll just stare at the back of Ian's head and not look at anybody (big crowd)". Three steps later, "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" started it struck me funny. I let out a chuckle and immdeiately lost it. Couldn't see squat through the tears.

Ook! Ook! ;-D Yeah, I know they're SECRET. I just thought I'd ask anyway, and see what happened. Ya never know just how stupid the opposition can be, so I figger it's always worth a try. For instance, there are bozos in the North Side Gorillas who have fallen for that same ploy, see? I asked 'em, "So, what is the big secret about what yer up to on Monday over at the waterworks?" and the idiots blab the whole thing just to show off that they are in the know, and then go..."Ooooops!" when they realize they shoulda kept their big mouths shut.

Anyways, I intend to get to the bottom of these secret rites of yers. And then we'll see.

Givin' Amos the third degree sounds like an excellent plan. I gotta set that up the next time I'm out San Diego way. I bet he'll sing just like a canary with a little persuasion.

Well, Rapparee's reports are highly exagerrated. Dani, Abby Sales, Micca and I arrived safe back yesterday afternoon at our vartioous destinations and crashed. Today, errands and stuff for all. The Getaway, with its secret rites and incantations, has transformed us all. Rapparee is now thin and good looking. Unfortunately he had to turn in his sense of humor in exchange.

Flying out tomorrow AM to California. I suspect it will never be the same again.

I'm home. Last night I sat up for a while teaching Amos "Early Mornin' Rain" and "When the Work's All Done Last Fall" and some other songs. He was so embarrassed that he started jamming with Kendal instead. Kendall outdid him, and I heard this morning that Amos threw a nearly-full bottle of whiskey (cheap whiskey, it was his own) through a window and the sheriff's deputies (who camp out in the parking lot during Getaway) shot him with a Taser, and all the while Amos screamed, "This is all-acoustic! No electric here!" So one of the older deputies hit him a few times with a blackjack and Amos went out with smile on his face murmuring, "Ah, the good old days are back!"

Unfortunately, I'd gone to bed by this time (8:00 p.m., but at Getaway you keep late hours) or I could have helped. I had to leave quite early because I was leavin' on a jet plane, so I don't know if Amos is out of durance vile or even sober yet. Janie or Dani might know; Kendall's an old law enforcer and may have provided the blackjack.

You dodn't need to tell my fridge to FREEZE! It used to do it regularly on the top shelf. Then the Sears repair guy said that was happening because the fridge was insane - with a bonkers computer the freezer was too cold and pulling moist air in past the frozen gasket and made tons of ice on the back of the freezer. Looked like a frozen Niagra back there.

Fridges gotta be dealt with sternly and swiftly, gnu, and you gotta take 'em by surprise. The best way is, turn off all the lights in the house. Stay quiet for at least a half hour. The fridge will think you gone to sleep or gone out, and it will drop its guard. Then sneak quietly into the kitchen with a loaded gun. Creep over silently in the darkness...so far so good...then FLING open the fridge door and yell "FREEZE!!!" The chances are very good that you will catch that fridge red-handed with its inside light ON and burnin' bright!

Cuff the bastard by its door handle and call for backup right away. They can be fierce when they're cornered.

I would go down there and give him some instructions on proper and decent social behavior if I thought it would do any good, but I figger he's probably beyond help at this point, and my time is valuable. No use wastin' it on a fool's errand.
