Welcome back. The political ferment that has assailed the forum in your absence is reaching apocalyptic levels of bloviation, and could only be improved upon by a post or two from your esteemed self. Get to it as soon as you have fully recovered, my good man.

IT's been the longest Xmas week ever; all day Monday was spent in a dreamlike tarantella with scores of cousins, nephews, and distant family connections who gathered to celebrate the life of my recent brother; it was one helluva day. I gave some remarks and sang The Parting Glass; Barky performed Taps and was told multiple times it was the best "Taps" ever performed. We did The Saints together as an end-piece and then all the cousins, nephews, sisters, daughters, in-laws and such gathered at a nearby motel and drank. AN amazing day. Bleary and still somewhat rattled from emotion, we climbed out of bed at five AM and drove from Grass Valley to San Diego. Whoooof!!!


Hiya, Mom. How ya been?

You darned right it can! A good used engine should cost you a lot less, and they're out there. Or turn it over to a good race car mechanic and turn him loose -- every see a Subaru do 170?

Janie, get a second opinion! The dealership is NEVER going to give you the lowest price. Click and Clack on Car Talk have a link for finding a good mechanic in your area. See who is around, either near your folks or near your house, figure out what the towing would cost if you had to tow it a distance (or rent one of the U-Haul car dolly things and take it yourself) and probably save a lot of money. Those dealers are expensive to begin with and when a woman walks in you can safely assume they see you coming. So to speak.

MOM says good luck, and kick some automotive butt and get it fixed for a reasonable price.

You can economize by using a much smaller abyss or even just a large hole and dropiing the engine into it. That way the Subaru will not have an engine that needsa to be replaced, being without any.

Some one please find me an abyss just the right size in which to shove a 1997 Subaru Legacy Outback Wagon with only 140,000 miles, in nearly perfect condition except for the engine, which would cost $7200 to replace.

Janie, I have a couple of bags that work that way. And though I've tried to reduce the size over the years, the number of smaller things one can store there still make finding any one of them quickly a challenge.

It's snowing here again, MOM. I thought you were going to make it snow on Rap and LH this year? And you always send a generous portion to Leo. We've had enough now. I gladly offer up the rest of it for the guys.

♫♫

Never drop a bowling ball upon a baby's head
It might squash the little blighter
Yes, it just might make him dead
So if you get a wanton urge to drop a bowling ball
Please gather up the children first
And tie them in the hall

And if you should be fishing out upon the ocean great
And there should be a child with you
Don't use him for shark bait
His mother wouldn't like it, she'd give you a dirty look
And children, they are far too soft
They won't stay on the hook

And if you're shooting skeet some day way out in the country
And you run out of clay pigeons
And some children you should see
Resist the urge to send a couple arcing through the air
They're large, slow, and easily hit
It wouldn't be quite fair

I would log out and join in the anonymous posting fun, but the possible consequences are far too dire. The Mudcat does have rules about anonymous posting on BS threads, you know. If one of your comments should be deleted, it would disrupt the continuity of the MOAB, thus leaving a huge gaping hole in the fabric of BS as we know it. Sorry, but even though I know the mods have far better things to do than monitor this crappy thread, and even though chances are none of them have even opened the thing in years, the possibility of a post being deleted fills me with fear, dread, angst, terror, horror, and other synonyms. YOU can take the risk of opening the BS equivalent of a black hole, but I'm not gonna do it.

It's a hole if the child playing in that sandbox falls in and can't get back out. And if that child lands on a bowling ball in the bottom of that hole, it'll hurt, and his parents are going to be pissed off and wonder what in hell is wrong with that BWL, anyhow?

I think I have it! For regular fokes who don't care about what mathematicians call a hole or not, a depression becomes a hole when its depth is equal to or greater than its width. A six foot diameter depression with a one foot depth is a dimple. A one foot diameter depression with a one foot depth is a marginal hole. A one foot diameter depression with a six foot depth is a by God hole.

A hole is a board goes completely through the board, a dent or depression does not. Same thing for your sandbox.

Hey, Mom! While you're driving down the highway in your that trucker's highjacked Kenworth, ponder this:

Imagine you have a good-sized child's sandbox filled with damp, unpacked beach sand. Now, imagine you were to gently place a bowling ball onto that sand. It would make a shallow depression, right? Then, imagine you were to lift that bowling ball an inch or so and drop it onto the sand. It would make a slightly deeper depression, right? Now, imagine you were to climb a step-ladder, lift that bowling ball over your head, and throw it onto the sand. It would make a hole, wouldn't it? So, at what point does the change from depression to hole occur?

It's sunny and cold here. It's usually sunny and warm here, so though I grew up in a northern clime, I'm no longer acclimated to sunny and cold. I'm thinking the suitable response is to head for dark and warm (a movie theater).
