Anyway, there's no delivery blockage to Canada. This country has a healthy respect for money. ;-)

A good high colonic could clear the blockage. We could stick the nozzle in a Certain Person in Blind River.

LH, if you buy it through Amazon, click on the link at Mudcat so Max gets a little of the action.

I went to a meeting this evening and learned something a bit...odd? frightening?

Some history: the Pocatello airport can last 747s -- it was a bomber training base in WW2. Off in the desert north of here it is said that there are still unexploded bombs, dropped by the trainees. The Navy also used the area to test 5" anti-aircraft cannon. Other things were done in other places around here.

About a week and half ago a fire broke out in Bureau of Land Management lands near 2 1/2 Mile Road (it was called, oddly enough, "The Two and Half Mile Road Fire"). A little over a thousand acres burned.

UNREPORTED in/on the news was that some of the fire fighters found two somethings that looked like a football attached to a length of pipe. Two more were found in a nearby gully; the fire had NOT burned over them.

As they were described, as above, I said, "Panzerfaust." Apparently at least four of them were brought to Pocatello and shot in the hills east of I-15 "back in the day."

Anyway, the military was called in. The four were bundled together, some C-4 was wrapped around them, and they were exploded about 70 years after they were made.

Ya wanna take a hike in the hills around here? Never know what you might stumble across.

I bet you don't have the one where his eyes are crossed and his tongue is hanging out. I was lucky...snagged it at a Thrift store in Espanola...they had no idea of its worth. One day I'll sell it on Ebay and retire, buy a yacht, and finally secure that long-delayed date with Winona.

Nah, I got a twenty where a picher of Lincoln is printed upside down. He's sucker enough to take it -- I got it from ma mother in law, who got it from her momma who worked at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in the "rejects" room.

Amos, I may buy another copy of your book to give to a friend. How do you prefer I do the purchase? Amazon? Direct from you? Tell me.

Wait a minute!!! Whaddya mean yer gonna post the book as soon as ya get the coin? WTF is that shit? Ya think I would say I sent it but didn't? $20??? A measly $20? I feel more than slightly slighted. Who do you take me for, sir? When have ever been not a man of his word?

And, Sally doesn't count. I was only 15. Ooooh dear Sally. She was such a good bad girl. She used to flirt with me and say her hands were cold and put them in my pockets to warm them... she warmed my... ahem... heart.

So... yer Jackson is on a horse eh, A. If the horse dies during interrogation at the border, I guess I'll never get to read your book.

Ya know. This is kinda funny. I changed a USD 50 inta a 20 and 2 x 10 and 5 fer ta get that 20 I sent ya what I got from this redneck hick in a town called Pocotellyah er sumpin like that on a similar book deal. Course, I didn't sign it on accounta tweren't my book.

I respect your precision, Sir Booque, even as I thumb my nose at your intensity of focus. I knew you were going to call out the reference to postcards. But I left it there, glowing in the moonlight like a radioactive mackerel, because it was so much semantically superior to the more precise "letters". The word "postcards" carries overtones of the time-honored post, and resonates with the other meanings of "post", including horsemanship, and at the same time reflects on the flimsiness of dreams such as those invoked to assert the reality of the Pony, a house of cards both economically and in terms of modern fancies. For all these reasons, I left it in, and for one reason only, you called it out. And I knew you would do so. But for all these reasons, I left it in.

Yup, ol' Dingus never tasted a banana. Neither did a lot of them Olde Weste gunne menne. Yes, that could be a reason why they turned to crime and outlawry. Imagine what would be the effect if the Clantons and Lawreys had been able to sit down and enjoy banana splits with the Earps and Doc Holliday at the OK Soda Fountain! Or Owen Wister's Virginian saying, "Smile when you offer me a banana."

Didn't carry postcards, carried letters written on the finest, thinnest paper available. And it wasn't cheap, so it was pretty much limited to essential business matters and stuff like Lincoln's First Inaugural Address.

In the West, especially in California, it was called "the Pony." The riding ended in Sacramento (or St. Joe on the other end); from Sacramento the mochilla was carried to SF by steamboat.

Assuming, of course, that it got to either end. The Paiute War, blizzards, wildfires, dust storms and other things made the ride less than peaceful. Getting to your last station and finding the next rider sick, absent, or refusing to ride was annoying to say the least, because that meant you had to ride on. Finding the next station burned to the ground was also annoying, but oddly enough the riders of the COC&PPEC had one heckuva work ethic.

There were also express (mail) riders from one town to another.

Never, or very rareful, was money carried in any form other than what might be in the riders pockets. Dangerous and too heavy.

Yes, Virginia, there was a Pony Express.

It lives on to this day, as it lived in years past. It flourishes in small boys' hearts as they read under the bedsheets with a flashlight. It lives in the minds of young girls still using training wheels as they tear down the Elm Street hill to deliver the mail under a hail of Comanche arrows. It lives in the dreams and memories of middle managers stifling under the weight of neckties and carbon copies, and in the faint fancies of bored suburban housewives who hear the pounding of hooves and the slapping of leather in a far-away dream as they vacuum their wall-to-wall carpets. It carries these dreams as surely and as bravely as the COC&PPEC once carried postcards. In these hearts, and minds, and aspirations, I can assure you that the Pony Express rides on.

Russell, Majors, and Waddell ran the Pony Express, not the Post Office. It died bankrupt and deeply in debt. Besides, the Pony Express never existed, but the Central Overland California & Pikes Peak Express Company did.

Please be more precise in the future and refer the COC&PPEC. Thank you for your small, even minute, contribution to historical accuracy.

I've seen/crossed over the pony express route out in the arid desert southwest. It might have been in Nevada. Did you know it only ran for two years? And I don't believe there was an Idaho branch. You'll have to try weather balloons and cross your fingers that a prevailing wind cooperates.

That sounded like a lovely dinner and evening, LH. Back there before the distraction of the Royal Library and the large print. (If the Royal Library has all large print books, as that big writing tended to suggest, that facility would be immense. As it would be if the books are all on cuneiform. Let's hope they were rational and kept the font and the page materials on a normal scale.)

Actually, the china there is quite nice. So are the carpets, paintings, silver, and furniture. If you DO decide to burn it down again, please get approval on the prerequisite forms needed for outdoor burning and be sure to file an Environmental Impact Statement (wait for approval). Otherwise you would get in trouble with the DC and Federal governments and you'd NEVER get clear of the red tape if that happened.

I was at the Mariposa Folk Festival all weekend. It was fabulous!!! Among some of the great acts were The Kruger Brothers (the most amazing bluegrass band you will ever see), Oh My Darling (4 lovely girls from western Canada), Steve Payne (superb blues player), Rose Cousins from the Maritimes, and Arlo Guthrie who did an absolutely delightful closing set. I expected him to be good, but he was way better than good.

The only thing I saw all weekend that wasn't very good was Randy Bachman, backed by The Sadies. I think Randy should stick to doing his radio show, because he's very good at that. Why the heck they brought him to Mariposa, I don't know...but I guess it got more people in through the gates. (and I do like quite a number of his hits...he's just not doing them very well anymore)

This year, my fav won in a very impressive 3 set victory over the No. 1 ranked player. Last year, Andy Scott was defeated in the final match. Soooo, he has gone from being a losing Scot to a wimming Brit and is the toast of Great Briton and and of Her Majesty's empire. The last Brit to win at Wimbledon was Fred Perry, 77 years ago.
