Speaketh up Sir Amos bolde


Stronge his arm and axillae withalle


Sir Amos who with grontes golde


Did sore ycled and yield trallalle!


Sayethe he This doth become


Naughte butte a way to theel and thum


All dawn til duske doth beate a drumme


And I hath feeleth mickle dum!


Nonne answerd him nonne to he spok


Yet perchance a yonge afrited byrd


Didst gyre and snatche a frogge to croke


And swiven swan untille it broke!

Nah, Friday's it's gonna be 71F. Tomorrow is slated to be in the 50s.

I think that during her days at University "Bad Penny" had quite a reputation for herself, quite a reputation. At least, I heard about her when I was at Cambridge1. If the stories are true she has superwoman powers in several areas, about which the least said the better. I do not sully a lady's reputation, assuming that she IS a lady and I, of course, give the benefit of the doubt.



1 This is true.

Perhaps you're onto something there, Little Hawk. It's not snowing here, but it's been raining since last Thursday and isn't supposed to stop until next Monday. That's eleven days of rain. Perhaps my own meager attempts at annoying Ms Rutledge are responsible for this lengthy patch of inclement weather? Discord in nature reflecting discord in the human heart and all that Shakespearian rot.

I think the fact that you have annoyed Penelope Rutledge probably accounts for the acute drop in temperature in your locality, Rap.

Heh! Heh! That was interesting, Rapparee. One can't help but wonder if some interbreeding may have occurred between the Irish Rutledges and the McBrides of Dangle? It sounds like they had a number of things in common.

It is a little-known fact that the surname of cartoon dog Scooby-Doo is Rutledge. But he pronounces it "Rut-ridge".

Personally, I consider the fact that Penelope may be related to Scooby-Doo as a big point in her favour. Perhaps the only such point.

My "lot" as you refer to us, have been lording it over your lot for centuries, if not millennia, and it's no accident, I assure you. You might think of it as a conspiracy, but I think of it as the natural order of things.

Hmmm.... Edward Rutledge (a slave holder) signed the Declaration of Independence and John Rutledge was one of the first Justices of the Supreme Court -- not exactly the sort to uphold your sort.

But enough of that. Penny, a bit of study finds that the "Rutledges" or "Routledges" were from...well, here:

...In the 16th century, we find the Routledges were one of a score of families that many English sources identify as Border Reivers who raided across the English/Scottish border, stealing sheep, cattle and horses, burning barns, etc.

In 1528 an expedition of 500 armed men drove the Routledge families from England into an area north of the Scottish border near Langholm called "Tarras Burn", a desolate region controlled by the Armstrong Clan. Some of these Routledges melded into the Scottish Clans around them, taking the Scottish clan names. Others immigrated to Ireland where the spelling of the name became Ruttledge or Rutledge. A third group drifted back into the Bewcastle area over a period of several decades and took up their old lawless ways. This third group eventually settled on the Routledge spelling of the family name.


Sheep stealing barn burners? Driven into the wilds of Scotland and then into Ireland? Well, the name apparently is geographical and means "red letch." Of course, no one is certain of that (unlike my own name, which translates from Old Dutch as "Keeper of the Sacred Places").   And many of the them eventually became Quakers, although it is most probable that some were expelled from the community because of their war-like actions.

Oh, yes -- "letch" mean "swamp," so it is quite possible your friend Mr. Ballsworthy is right about the reptilian thing.

Oh, my, this is getting funny! Bee-dub-whatever-it-may-be, you have NO idea what you are talking about. None whatsoever. But your vapid, uninformed ramblings are amusing to read. I do not have a younger sister. I do not have a sister, period. I think the person you may be alluding to is my niece, Veronica Rutledge. As for Winston, he is anything but a failure, except in terms of character. He has succeeded quite well in most people's terms, grows richer all the time, and is not what I would describe as "a drunk". This would imply that he is out of control of his life, which is hardly the case. He drinks, yes, but he is not a drunk. Drunks stagger about, slur their words, and wander into the kitchen at 3 AM dressed in nothing but a dilapidated bathrobe. This sorry picture in no way resembles Winston, I can assure you. He is always well dressed and well groomed, always articulate, dangerously handsome in a cold sort of way, and almost always insufferable, but definitely in command of all his faculties. He buys tasteless items like the elephant stool and the almost naked Mata Hari portrait just to annoy me. The only thing that could possibly persuade me to move to Arkansas, let alone to some godforsaken North American trailer park, would be if the rest of the world become completely uninhabitable due to killing levels of radiation...and then I'd still hesitate. There ARE worse things than death.

Back in the Olde Armye you waited in line and when your turn came you walked briskly up to the Company Commander (or designated officer paying), halted, saluted, and said, "Sir! Private (or whatever) [insert your surname here] reports for pay!" S/he would salute back, count out your pay (in cash!), you'd sign the pay voucher, salute again, do a left face, and face all of those who wanted their deduction from your pay (donations, etc.), and march out with a couple of bucks to last you the rest of the month if you were lucky.

Yes, I suppose a lieutenant colonel would be the battalion paymaster, but he'd need a pretty big bag of coins. Assuming that a battalion has around 500 men who are paid an average of around $2,000 once a month, that's a million dollars! If I were a lieutenant colonel, I sure wouldn't want to carry a million bucks worth of coins in a damned thigpen. I'd want a checkbook. Or a stack of prepaid debit cards.

According to Wikipedia, "Thigpen may also sometimes refer to a lieutenant colonel's bag of coins." This leads one inevitably to a plethora of obvious questions:

1) Why does a lieutenant colonel get a special name for his bag of coins?

2) Is a bag of coins vital to the performance of a lieutenant colonel's duties? If so, exactly what are the coins used for? Tipping hookers after the regiment's had their way with them?

3) What's a full colonel's bag of coins called?

4) What happened to the thigs who lived in the thigpen before it became the lieutenant colonel's bag of coins?

5) What's a corpsman's bag of condoms called?

6) What about a K-9 trainer's bag of dog biscuits?

7) Was the person who posted that on Wikipedia full of shit and a lieutenant colonel's bag of coins is not called a thigpen at all, but just a frigging bag of coins?

You are quite correct, Rapparee, I did use the wrong term when I said "dueling foils". I was thinking of the set of crossed rapiers that are mounted on the library wall. Then there are also the cavalry sabers in the study. Either would do well to dispatch Mr Kreuger or anyone else rash enough to invade this house...assuming they got by Baskerville, our Doberman Pinscher.

That makes twice that I have been wrong about something in the last 10 years or so. The other time was when I had the exquisitely bad judgment to marry Winston...he's in London right now, thankfully, no doubt boring someone absolutely to death over a glass of port. I plan to make some changes in his absence. That stupid elephant's foot stool he brought back from India has simply got to go, and along with it that wretched framed photograph of Mata Hari that occupies much of the west wall in Winston's smoking room.

Hey, Penny, there is no such thing as a "dueling foil." The foil is a weapon used in fencing, a sport, which can be fashioned to record a hit (or touch) electronically. It has a blunt tip. A dueling weapon can be a rapier, a small sword, a colichemarde, a saber, a messer, or any of the various weapons which have been used to skewer or cut an opponent -- and that is not sport. The epee, used in sport, evolved from the rapier and its antecedents and successors, and like the foil it has a blunt tip and can be rigged for electronic scoring. Of course, the saber (again, used in sport) evolved from the weapon carried by the cavalry and probably reached its zenith with the weapon designed by George Patton (US Model of 1913) -- just in time for it to be abandoned as a cavalry weapon.

And then there was the time, around 1972, that Billy Pilgrim, the unstuck-in-time protagonist of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five attempted to highjack my car and force me to drive to Tralfamadore so he could bang Montana Wildhack. I explained to him that a Volkswagen Beetle is not a spaceship, and that we could never get to Tralfamadore in it. I would have suggested we try to hitchhike, but The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy had not yet been written. So, I explained to Billy that, in Tralfamadorian terms, he had always banged Montana Wildhack, would always bang Montana Wildhack, and was, in fact, banging Montana Wildhack at that very moment, though not in the front seat of my VW. He seemed okay with that, so we went out for a beer instead.

What on Earth could Mr Kreuger's motivation for doing so have been, other than to make your day as miserable as possible? I think your response to him was quite appropriate, Bee-dubya-ell, and I'd have done the same, I'd have called his bluff...or I'd have run him through with one of the dueling foils, assuming it was well within reach.

Whether the beating should be done pre- or post-mortem is a matter of personal taste, but the way I figure it is, why waste a bullet?

Cheap wine and chlorine bleach, followed by a week-long soak in oxygen bleach. Run over the meat eight or ten times with a metal-lugged bulldozed (or ask your local tank outfit to oblige) for tenderizing, followed by about six months soak in vinegar and herbs. Sear in a pan of hot butter and garlic, and give to the hazmat team for proper disposal. Do NOT throw out or bury yourself! In fact, don't touch it without wearing a suit that's Ebola-safe.
