That's great! I hope she and the baby and the gentleman involved are ecstatic about it. Really!

We are thinking of a tour to NWT during this coming cold season to see the aurora. You can easily make amends in Canada, Amos, by spending money.

MM:

Congratulations on the pregnancy, and also on not having anything to do with it.

Rapp, thanks for the suggestion, but I think the remedy should fit the offense, and therefore imaginary penance is all I can do. Anything more real would be inappropriate, ill-considered, inconsiderate and impecunious.

I have to tell you about an e-mail report I got about an acquaintance who's in the hospital:
    She had a recent fall and now has phenomena.
I wonder how the message would would have come out if the sender didn't have a spellchecker....

Our humbled and hallowed halls are made both haler and holier by the presence of Joe Offer to the House of MOAB. Especially with a world-class proposition like that.

I have come down with phenomena myself several times, and it is not pleasant. You try to sleep it off and just when you think you're back on your feet, phenomena raises their ugly head and hits you when you least expect it. Drastic measures must be resorted to to prevent a rapid decline into the sordid fields of insurance sales or home appraisal.

Amos, you could always run for political office.

My brother lost his bid to be Mayor of Athens. That's AYE-thens, like in Illinois, not like the one in Greece or Ohio. He won't run for a political office again, he says. I told him he was wise, for it would give him more time to enjoy drinking and playing the trombone (he does both at the same time because he's got talent).

Stick around, Joe. You never know what'll happen here next.

I can imagine the scene: Joe gets a goofy (needs a little translation) email. He thinks "I could start a thread at Mudcat. . . " but he himself has chastised others for the slight reasons they start BS threads. . . wait! There's the MOAB! Perfect!

Or something like that. Well played, Joe. I hope your friend doesn't end up in criteria condition. :)

Criteria condition! We'll have to put him in the Icey You! That would at least slow down the multiplication of phenomena.

I am sure Joe's daughters are not dogs of the sort that go around curring others, especially since their family motto is "Non mittet in aliis Curare ". Which means don't go around curring folks.

Poisson Ives, sir, was a nineteenth-century French essayist and water-colorist of the first rank. He was feted by the very best people, introduced in royal courts, and redefined the whole tenor of pre-existential Gallic maundering. Do not speak to me of Poisson Ives in the same breath which discusses currier types. Currier Types was the worst font ever designed for the Macintosh.

Friends, do you know that my half-brother Shane McBride has been arrested and is currently locked up? He was trying to bribe a policeman with stale doughnuts from Tim Horton's; the policeman was arresting him for the usual -- drunk and disorderly, possession of illegal drugs, annoying people by asking for handouts, etcetera.

I do so wish that he would change his ways! I'd be willing to mentor him through a 12-step programme. That would be my duty as a good Christian and as his half-brother.

I am getting in touch with Sister McPhee, who lives nearby, to see if she can intervene and get his sorry ass into a dry-out program which she runs in a bunch of chicken coops on her back acre. The aspirants are rigidly schooled in religion, abstinence, prayer, humility, and basic farm labor techniques. They help with farm chores in exchange for their extensive enlightenment. I have been told they are maintained on a healthy diet of oatmeal, peanut butter, rice and kidney beans.

SIster McPhee and I go way back, having been wild-eyed hippies back int he Sixties. We lived together in a large refrigerator carton under the Golden Gate Bridge, and sang folk songs to tourists for handouts, up in North Beach. What a life, eh? Of course that was before she got religion.

She was trying to get shut of SIster Mc{hee, who kept telling her she should get off the bottle and get straight with Jayzes and gawd. Mom challenged her, asking her if she'd ever even TRIED single malt; the good Sister confessed she had not, and Mom thought she'd won the day. I mean, because, how can you get all up in Mom's business telling he to quit when you don't even know what it is like. So Sister McPhee rallied to the challenge and swore she would try a shot. But it would have to be disguised as she was in her habit and it would be a huge embarrassment to be seen sipping the devil's brew and all.

So Mom goes into the saloon right next to where they are arguing and tells Jake McCall the bartender she needs a shot of his best single malt and to put it in a teacup, please.

So Jake looks at her and sez, "Oh, is that fucking nun out there again?"

We used the front door to go out to play, the back door to go to school (till we were in high school, then we went out front). And the basement to go into the garage and the car.

And after MOM put double locking deadbolts on all of those doors, we sometimes had to drop into the back yard from the sundeck over the garage, if we didn't have the key and were locked in.

Of course we had doors! We had our pride, or at least that what was left after we had to sell most of it to make ends meet. Sure, the doors were just used burlap sacks and didn't lock very good, but we had doors! They had windows in 'em too, so you could look out and see who or what was out there, and the edges were all sewed up so they didn't fray much usually too!

Not really. We lived on top of an old dump and sod was something for the wealthy. Our house was constructed out of whatever we could find -- for a while the roof was from an old "Model A" but it blew away during a blizzard and we had to go topless for several months. It was cold and wet and drafty, but we made pets out of the rats and cockroaches and sometimes they'd lead us to some garbage that wasn't too old and we'd have that for dinner.

One time we had to eat Dizzy, my brother's pet rat, because there was no other food. Dizzy knew we were starving and drowned himself so we would have something to eat. He wasn't very tasty, but he was awfully skinny. We used the stagnant ditch water we boiled him in as soup for a whole week.
