Good night, sweet Prynce of books!
May Heaven bless your slumber!
And bring you dreams of books galore,
ANd readers without number.
A million minds fed by your work!
Rich on your hallowed stores!
Who bring back every book on time,
And politely ask for more.
And Bookmobiles of marv'lous size,
Many, and large, and Great.
But please take care, when this comes true,
You do not forge their plates!

Hi moM. Sorry to have been neglecting you, but it appears that the others have been keeping you well entertained.

Up late trying to get IE on my son's laptop to work right after installing Spybot (and then trying to uninstall it and getting error messages.

If I had gone to bed when I was supposed to I would have missed the grey fox still prowling around the front yard to the music of the screech owls calling back and forth.

Headed up to Ma & Pa's in the green rolling hills of West-by-God-Virginia after work tomorrow to see my great aunt, in from Florida, and my great-neice, age 1, in from Long Island. Will also miss most of the blistering hot weather here in doing so. We will be 5 generations together. Neat!

Will be on a real coffee jag to stay awake until we get there about midnight, being as how it looks like I'm gonna be lucky to get more than 3 hours sleep tonight. Sum Yung Sun now has his learners permit so he can do some of the driving. Unfortunately, I will need to be awake for it.

LOL! Lovely solstice gift.

Boy, that Conan O'Brien is a bit of a wild man, isn't he? Very histrionic. Downright rude. Bill should have put the Vulcan death grip on him...

And the proof, as always in such matters, is on the registration papers, clearly signed by an agent for the Pocatello Library by the name of John Hancock....

Who's this "We" person? I don't have a bookmobile. I have a GMC van, a Toyota Corolla, a canoe, a paddleboat, and a wheelbarrow. No bookmobile.

It's one of the operational side-defects of solipsism, BWL--anyone right near the "I" is considered a "We", to compensate for the wee weewee.

Rapaire has a bookmobile!
It has some doors and a steering wheel!
My God! How good it makes us feel!
Rapaire has a bookmobile!

When I think of your BOOKMOBILE, Rapaire, I am eaten up with envy so badly that I can hardly go on living! You are so far up there in my estimation that it's just...just...well, it's ineffable. How I wish I had a BOOKMOBILE of my own! (sob!)

This clerk was cleped hende Amos.


Of deerne love he koude and of solas;


And therto he was sleigh and ful privee,


And lyk a mayden meke for to see.


A chambre hadde he in that hostelrye


Allone, withouten any compaignye,


Ful fetisly ydight with herbes swoote;


And he hymself as sweete as is the roote


Of lycorys, or any cetewale.


His Almageste, and bookes grete and smale,


His astrelabie, longynge for his art,


His augrym stones layen faire apart,


On shelves couched at his beddes heed;


His presse ycovered with a faldyng reed


And al above ther lay a gay sautrie,


On which he made a-nyghtes melodie


So swetely that all the chambre rong;


And Angelus ad virginem he song;


And after that he song the Kynges Noote.


Ful often blessed was his myrie throte.


And thus this sweete clerk his tyme spente


After his freendes fyndyng and his rente.

In the same vain vein, for alles lange syne:

Whilom ther dwelt at Pocyatelleo
80        A riche gnof, that gestes heeld to bord,
And of his craft he was Booke-Keepere.
Yet wythal was he a faire scoler,
Hadde lerned art, but al his fantasye
Was turned for to lerne astrologye,
And koude a certeyn of conclusiouns,
To demen by interrogaciouns,
If that men asked hym in certain houres
Whan that men sholde have droghte or elles shoures,
Or if men asked hym what sholde bifalle
Of every thyng; I may nat rekene hem alle.

This Booke-Keepere hadde newe a wyf,
Which that he lovede moore than his lyf;
Of most three scoare yeer she was of age.
Jalous he was, and heeld hire narwe in cage,
For she was wylde at Hearte, and he was old,
And demed hymself, been lik a cokewold.
He knew nat Catoun, for his wit was rude,
That bad man sholde wedde his simylitude.
Men sholde wedden after hire estaat,
For youth and elde is often at debaat.
But sith that he was fallen in the snare,
Her moste endure, as oother folk, his care.




And so it is, and so it ever was.

I wish I had a bookmobile!
It's better than a cooked pig squeal,
Beats hell out of a hook for eels,
And even a box of oatmeal.

If I just had a bookmobile
I'd be the biggest of big deals,
Not just some jerk, not just some heel.
I'd be the boss! I'd be the wheel!

But, oh, so sad it makes me feel!
My heartache's true! My pain is real!
My misery I can't conceal!
'Cause I don't have a bookmobile!

Well, you see, most people don't start at the beginning and read all of it. If you'd do that you'd understand completely and would immediately be able to post witty and pertinent comments. You would suddenly become young and good looking, once again able to turn somersaults on the front lawn in the fresh dewy dawn, to have stray dogs and cats and cops love you, to leap tall buildings, and to again do all of those things that you once could and now can't.

Come.

I feel your pain, Rig. I'll sometimes go for months without posting to this thread. It's something you almost have to do on a daily basis or disorientation sets in. If I go on a road trip for a few days, it's sometimes difficult to peruse what's been posted in the interim without developing symptoms of various physical and mental afflictions.

But fortunately, those are only symptoms. The real afflictions don't infect you. You, for example, could act, talk and think like a schizophrenic, but you wouldn't have schizophrenia. Good thing, or we could be shut down.

Sorry I've been away so long, MOM, but I see you had a couple of strangers wander up on the porch while I was away. I hope the dogs didn't lick them to death as they greeted them.

Moonglow came to town so we went out to spend a lot of money. I had spent about $100 for a push mower for her yard in her college town house (where the neighborhood assn. fines them if they don't keep the grass mowed). Then I found one for $10 at a garage sale, 20 years old and going strong. So I took the new one back. But the glasses, the eye exam, and the upgraded phone all add up. MOM, don't ever get a cell phone. Just sit on the porch and greet all passers-by. It's the best way.

Congratulations on your book truck, Rap. Will it have a motor, or are you simply pushing a book cart up and down the street with a few books on it?

If it weighs that much you have too much in your backpack as you push that book truck. Are the wheels flat on the bottom? That will also make it difficult.

Poor, poor Khandu. Once mighty and ignored, he is now puny and ignored. No longer King of Mississippi, he has been relegated to being Junior Assistant Princeling of Babbling Brook, New Jersey. Once surrounded by the Royal Dancing Bimbos, he is now surrounded by empty Thunderbird bottles and broken banjo picks.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen!

Even Tweed, who is even now clutching and scrambling and crawling his way to the Royal Throne, has fallen. Fortunately, he wasn't hurt much as he landed on his head.

As for the Nats -- well, three is better than none, I guess. At least they won't have a complete washout of a season.

King khandu sought to fulfill his long ago predicted destiny by abdicating his throne and running off with a cashier from Walmart. But when he got to Walmart, all the cashiers on duty were male, so he decided to use the self-checkout lane. Using irrefutable khandu logic, he determined that since he was acting as cashier, he could fulfill his destiny by running off with himself.

So, khandu is now holed up somewhere with khandu, living off of the Little Debbie oatmeal pies he bought at Walmart, and neither khandu nor khandu has been heard from in months.

That's scary.

MOM, I'm bushed. Literally. I boxed up and bundled lots of branches from various bushes and trees that I'd dumped in the compost a long time ago. They have been in the way, so I bundled and cut and stuffed and tied up several bundles that are now down at the curb for the trash guys on Monday. My mowing in the back is a little easier now. I shouldn't be throwing any more sticks and rocks with the mower. I know MOM was disappointed when the mower was throwing so much stuff that it knocked down some of her sunflowers and knocked a concoidal fracture type hole in the sliding glass door from that flying rock.
