Three blastocytes in North Carolina and some bits of his bits in Dallas. Poor Pinky. He was called that because he was an Socialist. He used to hang out with other Socialists like "Red" Skelton, "Pinky" Lee, "Red" Grange, and John E. "Johnny" Hoover (who supplied the money to keep the organization going).

Did I ever mention Pinky Malarkey, up at the Legion? Pinky was from Ireland, of course, and used to do dynamiting on the railroad. Pinky was usually a tad confused, which is why he blew up bridges and trains for the Union Specific (a short-lived company similar but different from the Oregon Short Line). He used to drink rye whiskey mixed with nitroglycerin because every time he burped he'd send everybody diving for cover. Then one evening, at the Idaho Legion's Great Cabbage, Burrito, and Beer Fest he had one too many. Poor Pinky burped in reverse, so to speak, and landed in a direct hit on the edge of Lake Bonneville. All of the nitro he'd accumulated in his system over the years exploded when he landed and blew a HUGE hole in the lakeshore. The Lake burst through the hole, causing the Great Lake Bonneville Flood, which in turn created the Portneuf Gap and changed the course of the Snake River, resulting in the Roll On Columbia Roll On River which was later immoralized by Woody Golftee in his famous song of the same name, "The Great Bonneville Flood". Pinky, you'll be glad to know, eventually ended up back in Ireland: in Cork, in Youghal, in Tralee, in Derry, in Kinvara, in Ballyferriter, in various places in Longford, in.....

Was there a big fight there? Most armies try to keep their battle stuff rust-free, but when you leave swords and spears and tanks laying around sort of willy-nilly you can get battle rust, among other things.

They broke the mold, but they may still have to battle rust in that ironic garden.

A lot of irony in that vegetation, Eiseley.

Vitamin C for infections, eh? I took some, but I'll add a little more. Am feeling better. Too bad the beer had to just sit there in the cooler. Maybe tomorrow.

They were selling some beautiful malarkey today at the Farmers' Market. One of the farmers gave me a bag of it and I took it home to have with dinner tonight. It was crisp and fresh and tastes a bit like arugula, but with a kind of tingly aftertaste. I didn't see Rapaire there, though. I think he grows his own in his backyard, but it is a different strain, more pungent. Too bad, because the organic stuff is much better for him. I think it cures infections.

"...the latest batch of malarkey from Pocatello..."

Do want me to chastise Eiseley? I will reprimand her if you wish. She shouldn't be feeding you a batch of malarkey, certainly not on MOAB. Mom stands for Higher Things than mere malarkey.

No, I don't. Do you know the words? If you do would you please share them so we can all sing together around the pie-anner like Mom taught us? Eiseley can play; I think she put herself through college playing the pie-anner in sportin' houses around the U. of Utah and, when she was at Cambridge, pubs. I don't know what she did when she was in the Senate, except to run errands.

Amos, I too have a thesaurus. He's been a pet since he hatched out of the egg and he's big enough now to eat San Diego AND El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula. He's been chomping at the bit, so to speak, to gobble to you up. I've only been able to hold him in check by reminding him that we attempt to eschew gobbledegook, jargon, and that we try to avoid polysyllabic disasters such as "bombilate" and "amphibological." He replied, and I quote, "Tell him I said that he should attempt to mictruate up cordage."

Quote of the month, in my opinion:

1955, Peter Novobatzky, Depraved and Insulting English:

"The residents of quiet, tree-lined Bowker Street were a peaceful lot as a rule, but their feathers got a bit ruffled when the local ice cream truck man refused to lower the volume of the horrid wheedling music his vehicle constantly emanated. And so when the deranged war veteran from the next block destroyed the truck with a bazooka one fine spring morning, they all felt the warm glow of epicaricacy spreading through their veins."

(epicaricacy (n))
1.(rare) Rejoicing at or derivation of pleasure from the misfortunes of others.

You know what they say, Amos: the family that lays together stays together. AND we're related to a neat-o extinct group of marine animals belonging to the cephalopod subclass Ammonoidea. They are excellent index fossils, and it is often possible to link the rock layer in which they are found to specific geological time periods.

The closest living relative of the Ammonitida is not the modern Nautilus, which they somewhat outwardly resemble, but rather the subclass Coleoidea (octopus, squid, and cuttlefish).

THEREFORE and BEHOLD and QED: All of Mom's children are cousins to the the Giant Squid!!!

30 ¦ And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
.36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
.38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

Oh, you know Mom. She probably got off at the wrong exit and stopped at a tavern to collect her wits...

Here's a story from Douglas Fairchild:

"y high school girlfriend's great grandfather (I didn't know this at the time we were going together ... she probably didn't either) had built the only house that had a formal dining room, so during the ten years of the Republic (between the Alamo and being accepted as a State), when the Circuit Judge showed up, they covered the dining room table with a blanket and set up court there. This was Judge "Three Legged Willie" Williamson, what it took to be a circuit judge in those days. He got the nickname because he had a withered left leg below the knee ... possibly from polio ... and had a wooden leg that strapped on at the knee, with a pant's leg on it down to his boot and the real one sticking out behind with another pants leg and shoe on it. Three legs. ) I don't know where the Sheriff was, or if they even had one, but the Judge obviously didn't need one ... the following was in the court records from those years:

One of the locals opined that "We settle our own affairs around here and don't need none of Sam Houston's law."Three Legged Willie placed a shotgun on the bench, laid his pistol beside it and announced, "Oyez, oyez, oyez! .... Court for the sixth district of The Republic of Texas is now in session or By God Somebody's Going To Get Killed."There was no further objection. He held court, settled some disputes and rode off next day to the another county."

The red-oak flooring is all in, with neat trim around and only a couple of little flaws in the fine carpentry, which I shall fix today. I was so worn and weary by the end of Sunday I just threw all my tools into the workshop and didn't clean up. But I gotta tell you after living with mustard yellow-green tile by that back entrance for 14 years it is just a HUGE improvement to the music room. Y'all should come see. This is a BFD, as our Veep would say. I like a man who doesn't mince words.
