Well, I'd accept the compliment except it's true. And when the cops searched Barny's cabin they confiscated enough weapons to outfit three SWAT teams, two National Guard companies, and the police force of Humphrey, Idaho. Barny really liked guns. He didn't like bullets because he felt you could get hurt with them -- just guns.

All the other stuff -- the nunchuks, the krisses, the halberds, the bearded axes, and so on and so on -- he said were just souvenirs.

Hmmm....

Nothing amusing to say.

But posting here sure beats...
a. working on the the 2006 books to finally get the taxes filed
b. working on the financial statements and affidavits needed to push through with a pre-divorce property settlement,
d. filling out on-line job applications for positions I don't want but might need to consider in light of the continued turmoil in public mental health
e. making a list of all the repairs that need done to the house if I get it and need to put it on the market
f. calling the several people I started gardening work for earlier in the summer to explain that things got weirder at work and I was too busy to get over there and finish what I had started, and also too depressed to call them, but can I have the check for the work I already did anyway and maybe I'll be able to restart and/or finish what was in progress by early July when I pulled a dissapearing act, but maybe not, things are still pretty bizarre

And when I take a moment to realize my belly button truly is not the center of the universe, I know absolutely that all the above is well and truly absolute bullshit so what better place to post it than here.

So let us all focus our minds and meditate on the following:

Ready? Focused?

Nice, slow, natural, belly breathing?

Good. Now, as one, let us say the mantra -

Rebahubber

Again.

Rrreebaahubber.

Ahhhhh.

Much better.

Thanks.

That's really funny, Rapaire. You give good BS,

LH, I love tweaking you and making you produce these long, earnest explanations in your best "honest boyo tells the truth" style. It's a lot more fun than hunting down purloined texts claimed by Rapaire.

And because they are also bred to dig the badget out, they somewhat dislike having a pedicure.

Sort of like when the cops took away Barny's .44. And his Bowie knife. And his brass knuckles. And his blackjack. And his sap. And his switchblade. And his studded gloves. And his sawed-off shotgun. And his boot knife. And his backup derringer. And his quirt made from a chain saw blade. And his steel-toed caulked boots. In fact, when they finished with him he was stark naked -- they even found the razor blades he had hidden in his toupee. THEN they cuffed him, loaded him into the paddy wagon, and hauled his naked butt off to jail.

Barny still had the last laugh: he gave all six cops one helluva cold.

Huh?

What in the world are you talking about, Amos?

It's no challenge whatsoever for me. I am not the one who'll be clipping the dog's nails.

I have clipped them on a couple of past occasions, with the aid of a muzzle and another person to hold the hysterical dog down. THAT was a challenge, let me tell you! No f*cking joke, even if he is a small dog. It's very hard to clip a dog's nails and not clip one of them too close to the quick and cause bleeding when the clippee is thrashing around like a mad thing. I have decided to let the Vet deal with it hence...because he gets paid to go through that sort of hell. I don't.

This dog does not believe that nail clipping is a good idea, and NO ONE is going to convince him otherwise. You either use brute force (at least 2 persons AND a muzzle required) or you sedate the little monster and do it while he's unconscious.

You don't want to get bitten by a frightened dachshund. They have quite powerful jaws, designed to haul a badger out of his burrow.

I don't have to stoop and scoop. My dog is too lazy to walk far enough to poop on anyone else's property. ;-)

However, I do clean the stuff up anyway. Otherwise the yard gets to be like a minefield after awhile, and that can be pretty annoying.

The little scoundrel is going to get his toenails clipped tomorrow. He hates that! He is convinced that they will do him mortal damage, and he fights for his life. Fortunately, those vets have a muzzle to put on his little jaws, and they know what they're dealing with.

Surely you jest? ;-)

No, I really, honestly do not drink beer. I just don't like it. It also leaves me feeling absolutely lousy afterward like I've been mildly poisoned. It feels like I swallowed a garbage dump. Even one bottle of the stuff has that effect on me, so I think it's pretty toxic to my system for some reason.

I tried drinking it when I was in my 20's...cos, hey, everyone else said they liked it, right? Well, my body could handle it okay then, but I honestly never liked it much even then. By the time I hit 40 I discovered that my body didn't like it one bit either.

I drink water. Or fruit juice.

Shane drinks beer. If you analyze his urine, you will find that it is barely distinguishable from beer, as a matter of fact. Stale beer.

I am sorry to inform you, gentlefolk, that the suffix "-eaux" is formed as the plural of words of Franken descent whose singular is formed "-eau". Thus, more than one beau becomes beaux, a second "chateau" creates "chateaux", and one of many Esquimeaux become Esquimeau.

Other forms of Franken descent of interest might include "incenseau" and its plural "incenseaux", "Myrreau" and the family form "Myrreaux" and "goldeau" and its rarely used plural, "goldeaux". The plural of "steineau" thus becomes "steineaux", a peculiarly Franken construction hardly ever seen outside of Eastern Europe.

Really. Some people need remedial work. Have another beer, there, LH.

Hell, even a SoCal goofus like me can see that ain't right, Rapaire. 18 plus 9 is 27, times 8 is a lot more'n 81, more or less.

It is an awful nice number though. Iffen you divide it by 9 it equals 219 whose digits add up to 12. Imagine that!!

18981 is unique. First of all, the sum of first or last two numbers equals the middle number. Also the sum of the last three numbers equals the first two numbers. Turn it upside down and it's 18681 and makes time run sdrawkcab. Add the first two number and multiply by the third and the result is the last two numbers. AND while it's palidromic, it's not a prime (3 x 6327) but there is only one way to obtain it, as I've demonstrated). If, however, you add all the numbers together you get 27, the sum of which is 9, or 1 + 8, or 8 + 1, or the middle number itself.

There is another thing about it, but not even Amos will be able to figure out what it is! Ha ha ha!

JABBERWOCKY
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wade;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree.
    And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came wiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
    He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

THE WALRUS AND THE CARPENTER
"The sun was shining on the sea,
    Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
    The billows smooth and bright --
And this was odd, because it was
    The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
    Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
    After the day was done --
"It's very rude of him," she said,
    "To come and spoil the fun."

The sea was wet as wet could be,
    The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
    No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead --
    There were no birds to fly.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
    Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
    Such quantities of sand:
`If this were only cleared away,'
    They said, `it would be grand!'

`If seven maids with seven mops
    Swept it for half a year,
Do you suppose,' the Walrus said,
    `That they could get it clear?'
`I doubt it,' said the Carpenter,
    And shed a bitter tear.

`O Oysters, come and walk with us!'
    The Walrus did beseech.
`A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk,
    Along the bring beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
    To give a hand to each.'

The eldest Oyster looked at him,
    But never a word he said:
The eldest Oyster winked his eye,
    And shook his heavy head --
Meaning to say he did not choose
    To leave the oyster-bed.

But four young Oysters hurried up,
    All eager for the treat:
Their coats were brushed, their faces washed,
    Their shows were clean and neat --
And this was odd, because, you know,
    They hadn't any feet.

Four other Oysters followed them,
    And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at last,
    And more, and more, and more --
All hopping through the frothy waves,
    And scrambling to the shore.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
    Walked on a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
    Conveniently low:
And all the little Oysters stood
    And waited in a row.

`The time has come,' the Walrus said,
    `To talk of many things:
Of shows -- and ships -- and sealing-wax --
    Of cabbages -- and kings --
And why the sea is boiling hot --
    And whether pigs have wings.'

`But wait a bit,' the Oysters cried,
    `Before we have our chat;
For some of us are out of breath,
    And all of us are fat!'
`No hurry!' said the Carpenter.
    They thanked him much for that.

`A loaf of bread,' the Walrus said,
    `Is what we chiefly need:
Pepper and vinegar besides
    Are very good indeed --
Now if you're ready, Oysters dear,
    We can begin to feed.'

`But not on us!' the Oysters cried,
    Turning a little blue.
`After such kindness, that would be
    A dismal thing to do!'
`The night is fine,' the Walrus said.
    `Do you admire the view?

`It was so kind of you to come!
    And you are very nice!'
The Carpenter said nothing but
    `Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not quite so deaf --
    I've had to ask you twice!'

`It seems a shame,' the Walrus said,
    `To play them such a trick,
After we've brought them out so far,
    And made them trot so quick!'
The Carpenter said nothing but
    `The butter's spread too thick!'

`I weep for you,' the Walrus said:
    `I deeply sympathize.'
With sobs and tears he sorted out
    Those of the largest size,
Holding his pocket-handkerchief
    Before his streaming eyes.

`O Oysters,' said the Carpenter,
    `You've had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again?'
    But answer came there none --
And this was scarcely odd, because
    They'd eaten every one.
