Oh, no. You get it by colonic infusion ; it's healthier that way (or so I'm told).

Mom says to give MMario his coffee and leave him alone. Take your fire truck out in the back yard to play and don't fool with the laundry that's drying on the line.

That's not a firetruck. It's a genuine Mark VII Clyster Pumper.

Clyster is an old-fashioned word for enema, more particularly for enemas administered using as clyster syringe ? that is, a syringe with a rectal nozzle and a plunger. Clyster syringes were used from the modern era to the 19th century, when they were largely replaced by enema bulb syringes, bocks and bags.

Dr Rapaire, in his newly found Republican abilities, has deftly ignored what was being said and turned it into something that was not.

Well, back to the same old grind....

Mom, I could use a hug.

I just learned that an acquaintance over many year's duration is dying of brain cancer. He's smart and a good teacher and a wicked flirt, and way too young to die, but he has round-the-clock hospice at his home. If he was in the room when you read a paper at a conference, you always felt like he really listened to it, enjoyed it, and had good comments, and he was this way for students and colleagues alike.

Thanks! I called to speak with him this morning--the oddest call I've made in ages, I must admit. He sounded so good and so "normal," but knows that he's dying very soon--days--and ends up spending his time comforting friends about his own passing. I wish I could have gotten past that to make it a better call for him. I let an old friend of his know that this is occurring, so I hope that her call will truly make him feel good. He did sound pleased when I encouraged him to keep flirting as long as he feels like it. Do people want to know they're still sexy even when they're dying?

Even more so than usual, I think; there is something in the shadow of mortality that makes the cells very anxious to know they are being duplicated out there somewhere. Thus, the baby boom occurred at a time when we were losing lives by the thousand. Protoplasm does not take extinction lying down, no matter how tranquil the spirit may be about it.

It is even more important for literature professors; they have invested all their energies in collecting and purifying the memes of their age, and selecting those worthy of being forwarded, and it takes a long time to gird yourself for such altitudinous work. So the shadow of death puts great things at risk, and important thoughts at risk of being left unsaid. One can only hope to have many children to inherit the best of such beliefs and views for the good of Mankind Future.

Written or said. We're pretty bad with smoke signals, heliograph, ASL, and so on. Unless you film or tape them. But as a medium smoke signals (for example) is not prone to preservation and they lead to mass resignations of catalogers.

I hate to see a good man die,
Even if he is only ordinary, because
Sometimes the most ordinary things said well
Make all the difference. And if not,
If he had some special spark,
Then any minute walkiing might unfold
Some seed, some small bright thing
That never would have reached us from the dark.
There is always some finer moment waiting!
That is why
I hate see a good man die.

Outriders At The End Of The Trail
Dedicated To The Memory Of My Uncle, Evan D. McRae
By Wallace McRae

They contemplate their town-boot toes
As they stand around and mill.
They check the south horizon,
'Cross the tracks above the hill.
Their suitcoats hint of mothballs.
Their Levis are clean and creased.
They speak of grass or cattle
But never the deceased.
Some have shook the Gov'ner's hand,
And one's been in the pen.
Crooked legs define the bronc hands,
Cropped-off thumbs the dally men.
Their spring-toothed necks are throttled up
In silky black wild rags.
Their faces scored like flower stamps
On well-worn saddle bags. .
They've come early to the funeral home,
Yet don't want to go inside.
There's no comfort in a breathless room
Or words of "eventide."
They somehow share a secret bond
As each one recollects:
Together.
Separate.
Silently.
Each pays his last respects.

You'll hear no keening to the vaulted skies,
But the good hands know when a good hand dies.

Thanks, Amos!

Ordinary (in a short and balding sort of way--he's the one in the boxing shirt, all 5'2" or so of him) and extraordinary at the same time. When we first met, he was quite rotund, but he decided about then that fitness was a good thing and got so fit that he has been working as a personal trainer on the side for some time now. And planned to keep doing that after retirement.

Thistles. Weeds. I have been working on xeriscaping. I do have some purple basil, golden sage, and Roma tomatoes in pots though. The voles (which I hope are now exterminated) were causing problems -- along with the other issues that have pretty much taken care of the Summer.

Hi, Mom! Want some green beans? Got lots of 'em. One little patch has been providing more than we can eat since early June and they're not finished yet. They're a bush variety, not pole beans, and bush beans usually only produce for a few weeks. They should have been totally spent a month ago but they just keep on going.

Potted Rosemary around the golf course could be dangerous. She might get hit by a ball or run over by a cart.

I have a rosemary plant here that must be about 10' in diameter about now. It's a monster. I could keep all of Fort Worth supplied with rosemary for an entire year.

Yes, indeed. Trying to pot Rosemary is not a good idea. You are likley to get thumped, and she can be vicious, but I love her anyway.

I did try to offer Mom some of the Rhubarb growing outside, even the good stuff that the sheep haven't half eaten, but nobody seemed interested.
