MOM, you left dirty dishes in the sink overnight and the ants swarmed in and carried off plates and cutlery. You got at least lock it in the dishwasher so it stays put.

Huh? Both of my grandfathers were named Edward with a surname. Sometimes they'd drink a little whiskey, but mostly beer (being of good German descent). One grand mother was named Clara and the other Mary. My mother was named Esther, my father Ralph.

I think Amos is on some sort of SoCal herb....

I am, I am. But two wrongs don't male a right, nor a square six times, a cube.

He gets it from his grandfather's side of the family; he was a diehard drinking man they called "Cube O'Libre", half Spanish and half dark rum. Notorious for using large imponderable books with fancy bindings to seduce the ladies back when Tampa was in its heyday, black cigars, brown dancing girls, and dark rum the key to all his successes.

Benn there, slid that. I see Rapparee has migrated to exponents now. Why would he try to gild the lily by squaring himself?

Better than the 30mph toboggan.

A real one hurts worse than the aluminum ones.

Amos... a toboggan is essentially a wide ski with a large curl on the front end that you sit on and slide down a hill when there is snow on the hill. Google snow and you got it eh?

There's a powder for that; perhaps you should take it?

You know, "Bad Penny" Rutledge has an asterisk in front of her signature but I can't find ANYWHERE what the note is. Perhaps some flat? Or a simple "Ibid." or "op. cit."?

Legion caught a Californicator tryin' ta sneak inta the Hovel once. They tied him to a chair and made him drink pure California orange juice until he was sick of it and then switched to Florida OJ. He got sicker'n a dog. Finally, they took pity on him an' gave him a job cleanin' out the cuspidors. After a couple of years of that they made him an Assistant Associate Temporary Potential Member, and just last week voted him "Potential Member" for his long and fateful service. His name is Arnold or Andy or somethin' Swartsensomething. Up at the Hovel he's just called "Cal" (fer Californicator) or "Dummy" or worse.

"The true dachsund knows that anything of any importance relates directly to his ability or desire to eat, sleep, pass waste, chase interesting objects, bite things, and occasionally, to mate. What else is there in existence of any merit?"

That's pretty accurate, Amos, but it doesn't cover the dog's emotional needs, and they are considerable. Trust me on this. Dachshunds deeply crave companionship. They yearn for praise and acceptance. They do not like being made sport of. They want a lot of affection.

Outside of that your comments were most apt. I just thought I'd add in the emotional components.

...Tyrian purple was expensive: the 4th-century-BC historian Theopompus reported, "Purple for dyes fetched its weight in silver at Colophon" in Asia Minor. The expense rendered purple-dyed textiles status symbols, and early sumptuary laws dictated and forbade their use. The production of shellfish purple was tightly controlled in Byzantium and subsidized by the imperial court, which restricted its use for the colouring of silks for imperial use, so that a child born to a reigning emperor was porphyrogenitos, "born in the purple", although this may also have to do with the fact that the Imperial birthing apartment was walled in the purple-red rock known as porphyry.

The dye substance consists of a mucous secretion from the hypobranchial gland of one of several medium-sized predatory sea snails found in the eastern Mediterranean. These are the marine gastropods Bolinus brandaris the spiny dye-murex, (originally known as Murex brandaris (Linnaeus, 1758)), the banded dye-murex Hexaplex trunculus, and the rock-shell Stramonita haemastoma. The dye is an organic compound of bromine (i.e. an organobromine compound), a class of compounds often found in algae and some other sea life, but much more rarely in the biology of land animals.

In Biblical Hebrew, the dye extracted from the Bolinus brandaris is known as argaman (ארגמן). Another dye extracted from a related sea snail, Hexaplex trunculus, produced an indigo colour called tekhelet (תְּכֵלֶת‎), used in garments worn for ritual purposes.
