A chocolate arm, and a chocolate leg
Are sure to build up flab
And costly both they're sure to be
In Stilly's chocolate lab!

Where chocolate dreams, they all come true,
And no-one ever fears,
And bunnies from the chocolate lab
Keep both their chocolate ears.

For just one time, before you pass,
ANd they lay you on the slab,
You really must pursue your dreams
At Stilly's chocolate lab!

I didn't think they needed a lab to make chocolate! I was under the impression it was a relatively simple process. It's a wonder the stuff doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

More I think on it, the more the similarities become apparent between Rapp and a chocolate lab. For example, you give a chocolate lab to a six year old, first thing he's gonna do is eat off the ears on it. Same with Rapp.

He has a sense of guilt like my chocolate lab has a sense of guilt - caught in the act and if I use "that" tone of voice (the one that turns my pit bull into a quivering groveling puddle of pup) he gives a MICRO expression that says "well, yeah, maybe" and then he's back to his old open gregarious "what, who me?" expression.

Hell, the jail hasn't been buit would hold Rapparree for long. For one thing,k he hasm't even GOT long.

Besides, he'd have to invent a jail to hold himself, and as the solipsist king of All Universes, he would obviously never be so cruel on himself.

I'm in Laramie and I have to go to prison tomorrow for violations of the Man Act, specifically, acting like a man. Wyoming isn't known at "The Equality State" for nothing...and all I did was say something about women not being able to hold their liquor like a man can. I never got the chance to finish and say, "...no, they hold it better." WHAM! 271 days in solitary on stale bread and moldy water.

There is a man you hear about
Where folks are making free,
He comes from Pocateloo,
An' his name is Rapparee
And he hasn't got much money
But he doesn't just much care,
'Cuz the thing he likes to do the best
Is put out that hot air.

I made friends with Rapparee
And I took him on for fair
And we'd spar and banter loudly
'Til the quiet folks would stare
He would put out lists of sources
Of repute, renown and fame,
ANd was often known to post them up
Signed by someone   with his name.

He would generate translations
From the Aramaic tribe
Or the Mandarins of China
FUll of hexadecimal jibe
And he'd fill you with quotations,
Boys it's wholly plain to me
That there never was a scholar born
Could BS like Rapparee.

Well we tried to make him quiet, boys
But he argued in a way
That drove the MOAB upward
To the realms of Fifty Kay
And if BS overwhelms me,
And I'm ever forced to flee,
Lock the leather mask upon his face,
But give Stilly Sage the key.

True. There are few creatures more intense and determined than a dog protecting its home.

The Legionaires have gone. I bribed them by signing over this lovely offer I had from some kindly person in Nigeria (a Prince, no less!) to pay me 10% of their 185 million dollars if I just help them transfer the funds to my Canadian bank for some minimal transfer charges...a mere few thousand dollars. ;-)

They all went off, happy as can be! They're going to divide it up equally and refurbish the Legion Hall.

The dachshund bark should alert any invaders that their case is hopeless. My friend Susie (injured in January, almost back to herself now, but weak on the left side, kind of like a stroke) has a min pin at her house now. It is a step down from the 75-lb Labrador retriever (who now lives at my house), but this 13-lb dynamo has a piercing little bark that echoes at the door - alerting all to his size, but that doesn't work against him because it also conveys his passion for defending his house. I'm sure it is similar with your pooch.

Listen, I know. I've seen the Legion in my own town and other towns around here. Just a bunch of crabby old men sitting around gossiping about the past and glumly working on their mug of beer while they watch the world change inexorably outside the walls of their mouldering little fortress of memories. Ugly furniture, poorly maintained display cases with military memorabilia, poorly built models of World War II airplanes and ships by local amateur modelers, tarnished old medals once given for deeds long forgotten, old ladies with purple-tinted hair and those hideous glasses that come to points at the sides, the smell of stale beer and ancient tobacco patina all over everything...

Speaking of which, there was a shooting at the Legion Hovel last night. Seems like True Blue Red White got into it with Blacky Kohl. Blacky shot his mouth off, and so did TBR. Bartender finally used a bung starter to quiet both of 'em down and they went to sleep in each others arms like a pair of unwashed, unchanged babes.

gnu - I may be able to help you, specially if they are USA coins, as I'm more knowledgable about those. If they're gold or silver coins, I can definitely find out what they're worth, providing I know the condition they're in. The best thing is probably if you send me some photos and a detailed description of the dates, mint marks, etc. I'll pm you my email address and you can follow up on that.

Gold and silver bullion have gone way high in price in the last year, so it's probably a good time to cash in on old coins in those metals...although one can never be certain whether the value will still keep going up. The most well-informed people I know think gold and silver are over-priced right now and heading for a correction...but no one knows that for sure. Gold is at about $1600/oz now, down from a high of almost $1900 last year, and silver's at about $28/oz...which has put the raw bullion value of a lot of collector coins above the old collector value of same. Chris at the coin shop thinks gold ought to be priced at about $1200 at best right now if it were being priced realistically.

The really crazy thing is, though....no one can ever be 100% positive where the trend is going to go. It depends on a lot of unpredictable factors.

Most coins of circulated types from the last eighty years are of very little value, I was sorry to find out. We had about three kilos of them handed down in a shoebox from my father in law, including some interesting prewar francs, some Japanese Occupation army scrip, a whole kaboodle of pence and shillings, and some Chinese coins from before the Revolultion; somehow none of them appraised for much. We gave them to my son for safekeeping to start his son's collection, if he grew up to be interested.

It's a quiet, lovely, balmy morning in Southern California. My great excitement is that yesterday I received my new Allen&Heath ZED-10FX Mixer and have wrangled my way through the forest of buttons and knobs enough to get it to record and playback via my media Mac running SoundStudio. No small feat considering how little I really know about the intricacies of sound engineering. I have a pro coming Sunday to walk me through optimizing the recording session.

I haven't spoken with her in several years -- she went through some VERY tough time and is now in a powered chair. I got in contact again with her because her father died just last week -- a true legend Back Home, he was. She was also working for AIG when AIG fired everyone and then went under...they had literally begged her to come back to work there.

Lovely! Sounds like you had a great day. I had an interesting visit to the local coin shop (in Barrie)today, sold some old coins for a really decent price. The guy there is a true hobbyist, does it for the love of it, and pays you what the stuff is worth instead of ripping you off.

Given that I already know what the stuff is worth, having done quite a bit of research first, I've avoided getting shafted by various less scrupulous outfits of which there are many around these days. Chris gives me 85 to 90% of what he'll sell the same item for. The gold and silver shops that have sprung up all over will sometimes give uninformed (and most often elderly) people as little as 10 or 15% of what the item is really worth!

With this sort of thing, as with most things, it's best not to be in a hurry, but to spend some time investigating and getting a number of different quotes before making a decision.

Now if ONLY I still had that old Hula Hoop! ;-)

Of course, banter, especially silly banter, is always fun. Anybody got any?

I attended a small family reunion today. My cousin and I regaled the old folks with much silly banter and stoies of our perceptions of "life on Lower Robinson Street" from when we were tads. Prompted them to tell theirs. Didn't get around to the story of the penny matches and the fire. Good thing perhaps. Supper was beyond delicious. A true Acadian chicken dinner.

Sorry for the gobble. Back to youse. Anyone have anything of substance?
