I can see my hangnails
hanging in the sky
My elbow's up there with 'em
flying close by
And my knees,
if you please,
Are floating way
Above the trees
I've bid adieu to both my ears
But me, I am staying right here
'Cuz this Second Coming's second rate to me.

CHO:This rapture has been ruptured
The show is kinda of lame
If one of them scruffy angels asks,
Don't give him your right name.
The roundup's weak and boring
And I don't care for the company
Oh this Second Coming's second rate to me.

The times of Mother are hard-pressed
And mother's heart too often stressed
As all her children wander aimless
Making remarks she might find shameless
But still, her soul is softened when,
One by one they come back again
To ease her old maternal stress
With new inventions of BS.

I don't know if I should tell on Eiseley or not. It's all still pretty much under wraps and confidential and the cops aren't talking. Yet.

Maybe it'd be best to hear it from her own fingers. It's a pretty sordid story.

"It's a pretty sordid story."

No, it's best if you hear it from her. She's even written a little song about it -- a sorditty, if you will.

It is so unspeakably cruel, Raparree, to be a tantalus, constantly tickling the curiosity with false hope and half-baked implications. For fie!!

I just want you all to get the straight facts. I don't quite understand what happened myself, so it's better that she tell you. I truly want you all to know the truth, straight from her.

Obviously there is none more upright, strait, nor Virtuous than the Manne of Booques. So, Madam Eiseley, spill ye the beans!! Enquiring minds want to know!

We went to the San Diego Zoo with the Choreographer, which was most enjoyable; we rode the skyride. My foster-son had his 35th birthday--his bride kidnapped him and took him to Las Vegas. Greater love hath no bride.

ANd we got our TV replaced! Yay!

Considering what's on TV these days, I have to ask: did you get it hooked up?

No, I hooked it up myself, and we used it to watch a NEtflix film that was very touching and interesting -- a Swedish film called "Mother of Mine". We mostly use the TV for watching movies, Jon Stewart and an occasional history-making event or some such important thing. So "what's on TV" in the broadcast sense doesn't impinge very much.

I'd have to sell my soul before I would start watching most of the regular drivel available. Of course, no-one's offered me the right price yet...

It was three years ago, I think, when I dropped cable. I haven't missed much of it. A friend said a student of his was speaking about cable television one day and was asked "if you don't have cable, how do you get television?" Tim's answer was "it comes through the air." It seemed like magic to that student. :)

Okay, here's the story, and yes it does involve a song.

I've been visiting all the local schools pushing books and reading over the summer. The kids all get bright yellow backpacks to help them remember to come to the library, and in each class I've visited, I've sung a song set to Paganini's first Ghiribizzi variation (No. 1 in A, allegretto). Here are the words. If you listen to the tune, which is quite catchy, and then put the words to it, I might not be the only one in the world who has this melody running through my head all day every day.

Here are the words:

Oh won't you come to the library,
Come to the library.
Put all your books in your pack

Then you can join in our
Fun and activities,
And you will say,
"Mom, please bring me right back!"

"Relevision" -- well, it's a production company in Australia which produces TV shows and movies.

Other than that I can'r find any definition for the word at all.

Sorry, I wasn't watching MOM, I was in the hall watching the weather radar on the laptop. The dogs were in their leashes and asleep on their cushy dog beds as we all sat, inside the house, awaiting the passage of a nasty storm.

Moonglow sent quite an impressive photo of a tornado from her back door window. Wanted to see what my reaction was. By the time I'd gotten it out of the phone into the computer and then Photoshop, the shock of my baby near a tornado had lessened. I would have been there watching it with her, had I been at her house.

You may have to be a facebook member to see that photo. Not sure.

Actually, it's very much like the one this guy from Blackfoot is wearing. Silver on a purple velvet lining.

Story: Monday there was a call to the Lodge from a guy in Pennsylvania. Seems like he was digging up his garden and came upon one of these necklaces about six inches down. It was definitely from the Pocatello Elks' lodge, and he's sending it back to see what we can find out about it. It's in gold, which means that it's an "Exalted Ruler" (Lodge Chair) necklace. It's old, too.

No, I don't get to take it home. They ain't cheap.

You got bones in yer pancakes? Do they run wild in the woods, devouring anyone who gets in their way, ravaging lumber camps and leaving destruction in their wake? We have some of those out here -- sourdoughs, flapjacks, blueberries, huckleberries -- and they're so big you need at LEAST a .375 Winchester Magnum to put 'em down and even then it generally takes a whole magazine plus a "coop de grass" at the end. Our pancakes have few, if any, bones, but they are damned dangerous to those who walk in the hills.

A few years back one ate a game warden, truck and all.

You can hear 'em in the hills this time of year, making their "whoo-dee-dum-whup-whup-whup" mating cry.

Pancakes are one of those foods we sometimes have for dinner when we want something comforting and quick. Usually, of course, they're good for breakfast. They're also one of the more malleable foods for art. Making faces, figures, etc. all for a syrup bath.

a true pancake has bones....it's the flapjacks that are boneless...of course since they tend to interbreed you run the gamut of boneless to boned and every stage inbetween when hunting from a wild population.


The native American Pancake tends to be thicker and meatier, the European Flapjack (called crepes by some) tend to be thinner and far less substantial.

That's why most people stick to the farmed varieties; especially since Ms. A. Jemima perfected her method for dehydrating and powdering her ranched pancake/flapjack hybrids, selected for both substance and lack of bones.

I think a long, colorful ballad could be found in that picture--the day the pancake tackled Rapparree.

There was syrup in his eyes, and butter up his nose,
And bits of buttered bacon sprinkled all around his clothes,
It surely was an awful fight, A terrible sight to see,
the day the pancake tackled Rapparree...

mignardise (n.)

(1) Tenderness, gentleness; affected delicacy of behaviour or appearance; affectation. Also: an instance of this. Now rare.
(2) A type of narrow braid on which a design of crochet border or edging is worked (more fully mignardise braid); also, the design of crochet border or edging worked on this braid. Now hist.
(3) Chiefly U.S. A fancy cake or similar sweet confection, usually served at the end of a meal. Also fig.

Used in a sentence in 1631 by B. Jonson:

"Entertaine her, and her creatures, too, With all the migniardise, and quaint Caresses, You can put on 'hem."



"Rapparree needs to practice embellishing his posts with a touch of mignardise."

None of those hybrid dehydrated boxed or frozen pancakes for us. My recipe tends to be watered down enough to cook quite thin (not quite like a crepe, but close). A Swedish pancake is probably a step-sibling of the ones my Norwegian mother taught me to make as a child. Any leftovers we used to eat them cold by smearing on strawberry jelly then rolling them.

It was a wild pancake, both fluffy and free
Alone on the prairie, a bold crepe was he
And never suspecting his true destiny
Was to end the career of the bold Rapparee.

He rolled over fences, not caring to mend,
And lived all his days without needing a friend
As he rolled into Idaho just 'round the bend
Rapparee's bold career was approaching its end.

(Etc., etc., and etc..)
