Cherry blossoms in Dallas? I think not. Redbud. Magnolia. Bradford pear.

What brings you to town and can you swing by Fort Worth while you're here, or, shudder, tell me where you're staying and I might even go to Dallas for a visit. I don't do that for just anyone, just so you know. If it wasn't for the airport in town (Love Field) and a yearly convention my children attend, I could count the number of trips I've made to Dallas in the last 20 years on one hand. But there's a train, and good trams, and if worse comes to worse, I could drive my pickem-up truck over.

Hey, MOM, I logged on this morning to count coups. I swung by a garage sale and bought a big plastic bin full of classical CDs. Must be 50 pounds of good name high-quality disks in there. Woman running this sale (they do 2 a year, it's for their church) didn't figure she could move many of those, so asked if I wanted the lot for $20. I ran over to the corner market and got some cash. I'll sort the ones out that I already have and see what's left.

I like the way it will take a strip of negatives and sort them out into individual photos.

I'm working with 40 year old negatives from my days in Korea, back when I hadn't yet lost my boyish laughter and youthful innocence by toting a machine gun around them there hills (sucker was HEAVY, and clumsy as well).

But what I wanted to say was that I'm gonna be in Dallas in early April, just in time to catch the cherry blossoms.

They always have buttons I never use. I retrieve photos from within Photoshop usually. But those buttons look interesting. If you push the email button, do you think it will also write the message and address it for you?

Fly the scarlet banner!
Decorate the manor!
Raparee the Bookman just
Came home with a new scanner.

After all this planning,
And some tough unmanning
Finally he gets to put
His mind on doing scanning!!

Will it all be vanity?
Forward his insanity?
To what curious uses will
Rapaire apply his scan-ity?

Maybe he can even use it
To help all humanity!! O)hhh!

(Repeat ad infinitum)

You people on the west coast! Irrelevancies in season? In MARCH? There's just somthing very wrong about that. Irrelevancances are a summer item in this neck of the woods; very short season as well.

Oh sure, everyone has their favorite recipe for canned irrelevancies, but for FRESH ones you can't beat one newly plucked on a summers day in late August, warm from the sun, kissed by the dew and heavy with the expectations of future delights.

I'm pretty certain that there is at least one grave between Idaho and No' Caroliny, so yes, I am speaking to you from beyond the grave.

I seem to be consistently behind the "beat" today.

Oh well, at least I'm consistent about it.

Does that mean I'm dead?

Alternatively, does it mean you are speaking from beyond the grave?

Navel gazing and toe jam is the answer to a different question.

One of the signs of frostbite is if your toes turn white and then black and peel off. That's when the gangrene has set in and if amputation is done soon you'll die.

Nobody has shown any hard evidence that there is much of a future beyond death, except for great composers who have to play all their music backwards.

Which brings up the question: If a great composer, say Beethoven, had composed his works backwards from the beginning wouldn't he have already decomposed? And having once decomposed wouldn't he even today be composing and we'd be enjoying all of the works he never got around to writing in the first place?

Two of the suits are silly. He is representing himself on the first. It was dismissed in small claims court, and he has appealed. It got selected for arbitration, but neither he or I intend to blink. He has already informed me in writing that if he doesn't get exactly what he wants, he will move on to District Court. My legal fees for arbitration are going to be about equal to what I would pay him if I ceded, but my attorney is very clear that I don't owe him, and that she is pretty sure she can get him ordered to pay my legal fees. And it is clear that it is time to draw a line in the sand. Don't know yet what he will do regarding the second. My best hope with both is that they are dismissed, with prejudice, and that he is ordered to reimburse me for legal fees.

However, we have shared legal custody, and have 50/50 physical custody of our son, who alternates weeks with us. (That was Son's choice.) At present, no one is ordered to pay child support. I voluntarily pay for son's medical insurance and medical and dental expenses, school expenses, new clothes and shoes, drum lessons, summer camps, etc. It is a struggle for me to do so. I do have a somewhat larger income, but he has liquid assets far in excess of mine. In addition, his wealthy father recently died, and within several months he will have a substantial inheritance, including, but not limited to, trust funds for both himself and our son.

He is suing me for child support. Under North Carolina law, he might get it. He is an irrational person, and not capable of weighing the financial costs and benefits to himself of pursuing all this. What Granddad's estate represents to him is more money to pay attornies.

Bah! Enough of this.

Let's move on.

Is Good Better Than It Was Before the Future?



Enquiring minds really, really want to know, and it is an important question to all of us, at least those who have the guts to face it without whining like a baby or some damn Commie faggot bastard.

Discuss.

1. Get a damned good attorney.
2. Have the suits dismissed "with prejudice" -- that means that if any such thing is brought before a court again HE is slapped with a fine or jail time for contempt. At that same time ask the court to have him pay all of your costs (and nothing more -- that shows you're not in it for the money).
3. Get a protective order and a "do not bother" order at the same time.
4. Change your phone number to an unlisted one.
5. Change your email address.
6. If you haven't already as the court to restore your maiden name (that is, the name you had before you were married).
7. If he has firearms, tell the court that his continued harassment makes you afraid that he will do something violent and ask that the local cops collect the guns.
8. See if you can terminate any visitation rights he may have.
9. If he's paying child support or alimony tell the court if he's so much as a day late in his payments and ask for a garnishment.

If he wants to play with the courts you have to make it soooo expensive for him that he drops that game.

Janie,

You need an attorney who can make it clear that these are punitive, manipulative, frivolous lawsuits, and not only get them tossed out as an abuse of the court's time, but make him pay your fees. Surely this isn't the first time something like this has come across the dockets.

Good luck! Meanwhile, the burning paper bag of shit on his porch is a good move to make you temporarily feel better.

Time to organize a group of vigilantes. I'm thinking Rap, with sabers rattling and guns blazing, Chongo, the McBride boys - best leave the Legionaires at the Hall, I expect. Thugs, knights gallante, some one handy with a sharp knitting needle - hell - I'd even welcome our old friend Martin Gibson - well, no. That is definitely going to far. Strike that last line.

Just got notice of another lawsuit the ex has initiated. That is three in the pipeline now. I figure the mortgage I'd have to take out to fly the crew out here, keep 'em fed, and go their bail if they get caught will be considerably less that the mortgage I'm going to have to take out to cover the attorney fees to defend myself. He is determined to stay on my radar screen, no matter what he has to do accomplish that, and is willing to bankrupt himself and me if that is what it takes to be sure he still has my attention.

I just want to move on with my life and stop being distracted by all this to the detriment of Sum Yung Sun. I wish I could just cave in and walk away. Problem is, that is what I have been doing, hoping he would then leave me alone. He has experienced that as an invitation to push some more. (Silly me, I lived with the man for 25 years, and already knew that about him. He is not a monster, but is a man governed completely by his emotions - and boy, is he enraged at me for "abandoning" him.)

Talk about Bullsh*t!

They print the paper money here in Fort Worth, and the paper is closely guarded, from my understanding. But maybe you could make your own, Rap. It's about 80% cotton and 20% linen. You know that old pair of jeans in the back of your closet on the floor? Start with those. Someone told me the cotton in money comes from denim.

I guess you'll have to put it in the Waring blender. You can't run those jeans through the copier once you scanned your bills.

But I think it would be more enjoyable and less risky if you could contrive to get paid merely for scanning yourself, rather than using a fancy electronic device.

Rap, the one I replaced was an HP. It took a lot of coaxing to get the darned thing to work and I never found software updates that helped (on the other hand, I LOVE my HP laser printer). This Canon is a delight. Scanners always come with different operating software from what you're used to, and it took a little poking around to get it set on the professional/custom settings so it would easily let me save where I wanted and not just add to some hokey album. I think they'll all, by default, set for the home user who doesn't know a lot about scanning and doesn't want to learn.

MOM tried to scan a cat on Rap's scanner, but she never told him about it. The cat got so freaked out by the noise and the light that the entire thing pitched off of the table when the kitty escaped. It looked okay so MOM just put it back in place.

Sorry I never told you about that. . .

When you see how well a new scanner works you'll say "Good riddance" to the six year old one. I had to replace one a few months ago and the difference in speed, willingness to actually WORK and volume of operation are wonderful. And it cost less than the last one. Of course.

I've discovered that my scanner has croaked. And at a time when I needed it rather badly. I know that entropy increases but why must it increase when I need it not to?

Why is the Universe against me? I created it, fergawdsakes! I must have done so in a fit of depression or self-hate.

Now I have to go out and stimulate the economy by buying a new scanner and the other one not yet six years old.

I'll betcha this wouldn't have happened if Stilly hadn't stolen my number. Since it's her fault I'll send her the bill for my new scanner. And this time I'll get a decent one, not an HP.
