Amos, we're going to have to watch the results and pull together when someone becomes the candidate, but I'm still behind Ms. Clinton - I don't think young voters realize quite what the process is, and just because you state you want things like free college for all that you can just wave a wand and make it happen. Hillary is case hardened when it comes to political battles. And it's time - there hasn't been a more qualified woman candidate to date.

The year of the monkey in China? Aren't they throwing you a parade, Chongo? Why don't you go over there and check it out?

C'mon, Mom. Let's go to the Drunken Lout Tavern and get drunk and eat pickled eggs and embarrass the rest of the family. Maybe the place will be raided again and Amos, who's rich, can make our bail. Just five hundred dollars will set us free. I know, five hundred don't sound like much, but we've got old Amos to touch.

The doors are up! The handrail is up! The columns and the house numbers go up tomorrow! Now, if the locksets get in we'll be in great shape and the guy comes for putting aluminum sheathing around the trim, we'll be even better than great shape.

Broke, but in great shape.

I practiced my bugle! I can now play Reveille, Taps, To the Colors, Retreat, and Cease Fire. The last is especially important as I have yet to find my tuner. I know where I last saw it; for some reason it was hiding in the closet.

I didn't watch any of the Stupor Bowel either, Rap. Instead, I went out and played live music with a bunch of other musicians at a local place called "The Stone Grill". A great evening!

Two patio doors and two regular doors are in. They have to have the trim put on and deadbolts installed on the regular doors, but the new doors are in.

Just the trim, the handrail, the lights in the dining room, the house numbers, the porch columns, and a couple of little things to go.

Then, come Spring with its shoures soute, the deck (or as I call it, the back porch) gets resurfaced.

This is a great relief, as this stuff has been hanging fire for a while now.

I did it! I didn't watch ANY of the Stupid Bowl. I don't even know which teams were playing (it probably wasn't the Cubs). I don't know which team won. And I don't care!!!!

Zeke replied to my ad to sell a leather Adidas gym bag/case for racquets and three wood squash racquets for $40... "Is this squash or badminton? Can I see pictures of the racquets?"

I replied... "I am glad you asked me for pics of the racquets. When I took them out to take pics, I realized that I had priced the lot FAR below the actual value. I reposted my ad on Kijiji at a higher price with a pic of the racquets. Thanks. BTW, the Wilson Professional was only used in competitions. One Manta Pro Only is the one I used in league and the other one was used only long enough to get the feel of it as it was a backup."

Ya think Zeke will bother me again? Honestly! Some peoples' kids! A leather racquet bag and THREE expensive squash racquets for $40???? And he wants more pictures? Fuck me! It's a racquet bag... squash, tennis, badminton... it's worth $40.

If he lands here and offers me less, I will add the "less" on the asking price.

Yes, I am filling in time before returning to scrub walls. What's your excuse for wasting your time with reading my drivel?

Yessiree. It is the year of the Monkey. And you know what that means? I am not a Monkey...but they don't have the Year of the Ape on the Chinese Zodiac, do they? So what it means is that 2016 IS the year that I will be elected President of the USA. You can take that to the bank and cash it, mister. Trump, Hillary, Sanders, Cruz, Rubio, they ain't got a chance. Get ready for "Change" with a capital "C", America! A gun club on every corner and a buncha bananas on every table! Ook! Ook!

Hmm? No, I used the snow blower and a environment-friendly snow/ice melter and not much of that -- there was a giant heat lamp in the sky. And I didn't try to destroy ice piles or anything.

But you should have seen the dogs next door. I was blowing snow and throwing it to the east off the "RV pad" on the east side of the house (no, we don't have anything like an RV, unless you count a tent). The dogs were barking and all excited about the excitement -- and then, very unintentionally, they got a face full of blown snow. Talk about excited! I had to give them treats to calm them down to three-quarter speed.

Overall, not very taxing and a good deed for the folks on Monday. They've been slogging through snow for a month now.

A snare might cause pangs, Amos, but not defamation. And a well made and laid snare might cause but little pangs to the snared. Certainly in any situation in which I would lay a snare it would help spare me the pangs of hunger!

Unless...did you mean a snare drum? If so you could do the rolls as I played the appropriate bugle call. Just imagine the excitement at Getaway, for example, if Reveille was played on drum and bugle outside of the Peace Cabin! Everyone loves well played drums and bugles!

Amos has tried in vain to emulate my creative magnificence, Rap, but despite his valiant attempts he has come up "a nose short". Still, a worthy effort on his part. I am intrigued by the Irish tale about needing to find a king who was "physically perfect"! This would be akin to looking for the Fountain of Youth or the Holy Grail, in my opinion. Shane who IS Irish has often *claimed* to be physically perfect (specially below the belt)...but everyone knows it's a lie. Penelope Rutledge imagines herself to be physically perfect, and she almost is, except for the slight trace of a dueling scar on her left cheek, acquired during a disagreement with Angelique Forget on Penelope's storied romantic trip to Spain some years back. I've seen the odd Dachshund who was nearly physically perfect...

Yes, physical perfection is exceedingly hard to find in this world. I only know of 2 cases of it.

One is a local woman I know, a friend of mine who shall remain nameless, as I would not wish to cause her embarrassment.

And the other is, of course, Chongo Chimp. He is utterly perfect from his hard little cranium to the tip of his fully articulate toes, and this is another good reason to vote for him in November and finally put someone in the White House who isn't either a pathetic corporate shill or a certifiable lunatic.

The choice is obvious.

The story of Nuada, so glibly thrown out by Rapparree, is instructive. He was King, you know, over the Tuatha Dé, who fought for and won the right to occupy three-quarters of Ireland's fair isle.

Having lost his arm, Nuada was no longer eligible for kingship due to the Tuatha Dé tradition that their king must be physically perfect, and he was replaced as king by Bres, a half-Fomorian prince renowned for his beauty and intellect. The Fomorians were mythological enemies of the people of Ireland, often equated with the mythological "opposing force" such as the Greek Titans to the Olympians, and during Bres's reign they imposed great tribute on the Tuatha Dé, who became disgruntled with their new king's oppressive rule and lack of hospitality. By this time Nuada had his lost arm replaced by a working silver one by the physician Dian Cecht and the wright Creidhne (and later with a new arm of flesh and blood by Dian Cecht's son Miach). Bres was removed from the kingship, having ruled for seven years, and Nuada was restored. He ruled for twenty more years.[3]

Bres, aided by the Fomorian Balor of the Evil Eye, attempted to retake the kingship by force, and war and continued oppression followed. When the youthful and vigorous Lugh joined Nuada's court, the king realised the multi-talented youth could lead the Tuatha Dé against the Fomorians, and stood down in his favour. The second Battle of Mag Tuired followed. Nuada was killed and beheaded in battle by Balor, but Lugh avenged him by killing Balor and led the Tuatha Dé to victory.[

So be not too hasty, dear Bookmonster, to emulate a fallen king, no matter how brightly glisteneth his arm, his nose, or even his pearly smile!

Yesterday afternoon I saw the hand doctor (well, physician's assistant) who confirmed what I suspected: trigger finger caused by synovial tendonitis. Rather than surgery, he elected to shoot cortisone into the tendon of the ring finger on my left hand.

I will only say that it was extremely painful. The only thing I've ever had done that comes close is when, many years back, an oral surgeon injected a local anesthetic directly into a cyst in my mouth -- which caused me to pass out.

So far it's not doing much but I was told it will take a couple of days.

"In at least six precincts across Iowa Monday, Democratic caucus votes ended in a tie, forcing a coin toss to decide which candidate would win a county delegate.

Mrs. Clinton won all of these - securing her an incredibly narrow lead.

It seems quite ironic that the more socialist candidate lost because of cold hard cash."

Monday's all-important Democratic caucuses in Iowa ended in what amounts to a dead heat.

A statement from the party's leader called the finish between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders "historically close," but didn't declare a winner.

Dr. Andy McGuire said Clinton was awarded 699.57 state delegate equivalents, Sanders 695.49, Martin O'Malley 7.68 and uncommitted, .46.

One precinct still hadn't reported, in Des Moines, with 2.28 state delegate equivalents."
