There is no single being in the Universe, good friends, who would not feel it was something to aspire to on a particularly lovely day.

Assuming he could even imagine the delights thereto appertaining!

Envy does not become you, Amos. You'll have to try to have something else become you. But there's a long list to chose from: lust, gluttony, despair, simony, blasphemy, heresy, hubris, extortion, embezzlement, homicide, necromancy...why, the list goes on and on and on....

Oh, well, yeah, I concede that...he has a soul. I saw it, glimmering faintly in the depths of his mind after a few drinks at the Getaway. Then he went off toward his cabin, and he came back a few minutes later dressed up as the personification of Death. Musta got inspired or sompn...

Well, I don't think he's exactly SOUL-less. Heartless at times, sure, but as far as I could tell he still has a soul.

So fallen! so lost! the light withdrawn
Which once he wore!
The glory from his gray hairs gone
Forevermore! . . .
Of all we loved and honored, naught
Save power remains; . . .
All else is gone; from those great eyes
The soul has fled: . . .
Walk backward, with averted gaze,
And hide the shame!

Nitpicking, Amos. The point was that Hemingway could have played with the words and ended up with egg on his face. You know, dumbing down, such as taking the perfectly fine "Scylla and Charybdis" and referring to them as "a rock and a hard place."

The most exciting thing about reaching 40,000 is that William Shatner may grace us with his presence, albeit briefly.

40,000 will be pastures new and manured fresh, skies of azure and sunbeams golden 'neath clouds puffy, where boys and girls young and innocent will gambol and frolic lamb-like in wonder new, coating their shoes new with the manure fresh to the dismay of their mothers irritated.

Every now and again, Sage, I drop in- scary as it is.

What made me open it this time is the fear of what will happen when the count hits 40,000. There will be rioting in the streets. I only hope it will be but virtual.

Home again! The boys are wrestling on the oriental carpet, the cat won't let me out of her sight. There is a dusting of snow on the unused car (I hid the keys before I left). I miss the friends (and the weather) in San Diego, but it is good to be home. Tomorrow to fresh woods and pastures new.

(That last line, by the way, from Lycidas, is the kind of poetryfied syntax that especially irritates me. Do you agree, Amos?)

Ebbie is reading the MOAB again. Must be a really slow day in the neighborhood. . . I've been pondering that he/him bit. I think I will have to actually get out the book and take a look.

Meanwhile, aren't we all glad that Hemingway didn't name the book Who The Bell Rings For. He nailed the subject/direct object bit and didn't end on a preposition.

"...he and Jacqui. Him is a possessive noun in "him and Jacqui," don't you think?" Some time back...

The way I keep the hisn's and hern's fairly correct: Drop part of the sentence and if it now clearly does not make sense, it ain't right, i.e. you would not say: "If you don't know Morse, you really should meet he." Or "if you don't know me, you should meet I."

Many librarians go to ALA conventions, and some librarians probably have ALS, and they might even go to ALA conventions, but I've never heard of a convention for people who have ALS. Could be, though.

We were commenting on how statistically noteworthy it is that of all the folkies and fans in the world, we end up here on the Mudcat, and of all the thread-clusters on the Mudcat I end up here on the MOAB with count'em not one not two but THREE librarians. I mean, aside from going to an ALS convention, what are the odds?

The sprout has returned to the desert southwest. His first day of class is delayed a day because the Obamas will visit campus on Wednesday. I hope he goes to hear the talk.

I got ways of stayin' young that you don't know about, Rap. It involves combinin' a spicy mixture of rare ingredients like good quality whiskey, Cuban cigars, classy dames, vintage weapons, and fast cars. But you gotta combine the ratios just right or you'll get old before your time. Ook! Ook! ;-D Yup. I seen people kick the bucket by 30 livin' the way I do. Ya know why? They didn't get the ratio right.

Amos, yer problem is that you ain't a complete anything. You can say what you want about me, but at least I ain't a partial jerk, a partial success, a partial loser or a partial intellect...like some people I could mention around here. No sir. Nothin' partial or half-baked about me. When I go fer somethin' I go all the way.

Bitter End: (nautical) the inboard end of a line or cable especially the end that is wound around a bitt.

Bitt: a single or double post fixed on a deck for securing mooring lines and towlines. On a deck, a bitt is more commonly called a bollard.

Golly gee, Amos. So did I. Didn't touch a firearm all day and I most likely won't tomorrow or Monday or Tuesday. For one thing I'm going to Lava Hot Springs to soak in hot water during this chill spell. For another I don't plan to do so and doubt the need to do so will arise.

I'm glad she didn't take her gun to town. Last time she was at a national library-type meeting she was in Seattle and started "hoorahin'" the town by flinging fish at passersby down at the Pike Street Market. Caught a cop up 'longside the head, stole his hat and badge and left him unconscious on the sidewalk with a doughnut in one hand and a herring in the other. The Seattle PD still hasn't figured out the mystic significance of this, if any.
