Mwahahaha... the idea of being called on by LH's imaginary playmate on a matter of "honor", sponsoring Rapaire, is so rich in multiple vectors of self-contradiction I can hardly contain my mirth. Just let Chongo know for me, that if he comes calling he will have to discuss his sordid and irresponsible history with his little sister, and she is not a good listener.

Rapaire, old buddy, you can count me among the good friends you have who are gonna call on Amos. He needs a good straightening out and I got just the medicine required for that. But maybe you have some suggestions of yer own? Let me know yer thoughts on this. I want to do "the job" right.

Janie, I've noticed her accent is thicker. For some reason her accent always sets me on edge, despite the fact that I like that kind of accent. Maybe if I'd heard it stronger first it would have been better--when she first was on the air it almost sounded like a fake accent. I suppose I imprinted on that impression.

So you were out tripping the light fantastic? How's your moonwalk? Or do you do the spinning break dance? :)

We lost someone who was a great potential MOABite. I think we should bestow a posthumous MOAB membership on Billy Mays. That man could gab.

Jealousy does not become you, Amos. It is not my fault that I am exceedingly bright, literate, multilingual*, well-read, good looking, trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, reverent, et sans peur et sans reproche. It is due simply to having the best genetic makeup in the history of the human race (the ne plus ultra as it were) and good raisin' up.

Don' worry about it none. Rapaire has credentials in any group, association, club, and back-room deal circle that has ever laid a claim to anything at all, mostly as a result of his stellar dexterity with librarian tools and the office xerox machine.

Yes, I deal pot and I'm damned proud of it! I prefer to deal pots (plural), but if someone only wants one pot, I won't chase him away, especially if it's a big one.

I haven't really noticed a change in Fiona's accent, Janie, but I have noticed that when I travel outside the southeast for any length of time, I'll start to lose my southern drawl. When I return to Floribama, I have to learn how to sound like an uneducated, inbred, rednecked peanut farmer all over again.

Hi MOM. Just took off my dancin' shoes after going to a pot luck and Michael Jackson dance party at Dani's.   

"You did what!?" you say?

It were fun. I'm 14 years older than Dani, so I didn't grow up on the Jackson 5 and MJ, as did both she and her kids.    But I loves to dance, and that music is made fer dancin.' The party was still going strong when I left.

Separate but related, I was listening to "Thistle and Shamrock" on the drive home. Anybody else notice how much thicker Fiona Richie's Scottish accent has gotten over time, since she returned to Scotland?

All of the above and more. For one thing, pigeons hated those beams of light; when they were trying to fly home after dark, when a party had been longer and wilder than planned, the beams would blind them and they would end up crashing into the duckpond in the park. The beams annoyed the hell out of bats because their prey, the small nocturnal insects, would all steer toward the beams and it would become harder and harder to find a square meal in reasonable reach of the home cave. The beams would mess up the circadian cycles of neighboring bears in winter and confuse the beavers in their lodges. so a groundswell of telepathic, organic, deep-seated resentment began to build up and grow and grow. It got so thick that even humans, whose memetic density if legendary, could not think of renting one of those spotlights without getting queasy and turning all absentminded under the subtle barrage of animal thought-beams protesting the idea.

Eventually, the market declined so far that no-one would run the business risk of buying one to rent out, and the rest rotted away through simple attrition.

Hi Mom! Ya know what I miss? Spotlights! The ones they used to rent out for grand openings of stores and car lots and such. Big humongous high-voltage zillion candle-power things that would shoot a beam clear up to the stratosphere. Remember them?

Remember going outside after dark and seeing the beams sweeping through the sky and then running back inside hollering, "Mom! Dad! Spotlight! Let's go find out where it's comin' from!"? Then everyone would pile into the car and drive toward what appeared to be the beam's origin point and, after making a few wrong turns, would eventually arrive at some Ford dealership or a new Western Auto store.

Whatever happened to 'em? Did the government decide they were an aviation hazard? Were they war surplus items that were made so obsolete by radar that they quit makin 'em? Did people just start getting so glued to their televisions that they quit going outside after dark? Did light pollution in big cities get so bad that you wouldn't be able to see a spotlight beam coming from a mile away? All of the above?

We went to a wedding of twenty-somethings, and we were all over fifty and we all cried. The innocence, ignorance, and faith was inspiring, the poetic and creative energy that went into the vows was inspiring, and nothing was as it was in our day, and yet nothing had really changed. So we made warm friendly nice with strangers and had some wine and came home. Maybe life requires a renewal of ignorance in order to keep going.

They will take away more of my superb, unparalleled, DNA on Wednesday, July 22nd. I believe that they are storing it so that they can use it to clone such superior beings as I when the Secret Government Agency doing it finds it necessary.

And you can believe this or not, but it's true: I chose the date of the surgery because it's the day after the monthly Board of Trustees Meeting and that way my #2 wouldn't have to do it.

I'm currently learning how much I really use my left arm. For example, putting on my socks or applying deodorant. Fortunately, I can still shoot with my right hand, but if...hey! I could keep a pistol in the sling on my left arm! Hmmmmmmmmmmm...easy to get to, too. Hmmmmmmmm....

Oh, by the way, we went down to the Welsh Festival in Malad today. There are more people per capita of Welsh descent living in Oneida County, Idaho than anywhere else outside of Wales. I wanted to have some of those Welsh Corgis but the didn't have any -- I've heard they're great with a butter cream frosting.

I have just learned from an unimpeachable source that Michael Jackson owned the production rights to "The Notre Dame Victory March" and the school song, "Notre Dame Our Mother" among the rights to other songs, including some by Dylan and the Beatles. These cannot be played until the estate is settled.

Notre Dame has elected to sing "Oh Mary We Crown Thee With Flowers Today" and, in an attempt to regain their football momentum, "Back In The Saddle Again" instead.

I'll have more on this as details warrant.

She used to be a school nurse in an elementary school in town before she retired, and MOM thinks she'll be able to see through all of these personalities and see the inner child that is screaming to be released.

Mrs. Crutcher retired about 50 years ago, so be sure to shout into her ear horn and articulate your words clearly.

Strange times, indeed! Chongo's long abandoned sister Chinga, who runs a prosperous chain of whorehouses in CHicago, New York, Schenectady and Skaneateles, has never forgiven her brother for walking out on their sick, destitute mother and her when she was too young to earn a respectable living, but too desperate not to turn to what she could do on the mean streets of Chicago. She has often threatewned to decapitate Chongo if he ever showsup in one of her establishments.

Meanwhile, Little Hawk, the perfervid and seriously under-employed inventor of Chongo, has taken exception to the multiple-personality-disorder diagnosis exercised on his case by the good Doctor Liebenscheiss, the Mudcat's resident Freudian psychoanalyst. Having a good deal of time on his hands, Little Hawk has demonstrated his vengeful nature by inventing a counter-identity and claiming legitimacy for it in Liebenscheiss' field of expertise, and trying in this way to project Liebenscheiss' diagnosis against myself as Liebenscheiss' inventor.

A sordid and complicated tale, you might say, in which the sorry extremism of a desperately eroded character leads to a war between himself and "everybody" through the means of his socially palliative invented characters.

Liebenscheiss advises me, and I think I agree, that to do no harm is the best I can hope for, and that to attempt to reason with Little Hawk in his present condition would only get him worked up. His irritation would lead to energizing more cartoon rebuttals placed neatly in the mouths of imaginary playmates, and the interaction between them would escalate things to the point where his already depleted anger-management skills would fail completely. Blood pressure, heart attacks, and individual acts of inappropriate violence would possibly ensure, none of which I would want to see happen.

THerefore I can only applaud Mister Hawk for his prolific creativity and wish him well.
