Bravo! Author! Author! Really, I am just tickled pink to see how well respected my name is on this...sight...sorry!...site is what I meant to say. It reminds me of the salad days back on Regulus 5. Ah, yes. She was tall, blonde, and single. She had that...look...in her eye. It told me...that she was in need of...entertainment. My kind of entertainment. What could I do? I have 5 days of leave and...no commitments. I had a free pass...to the planetarium and...a shuttle craft at my disposal. I did the obvious thing and asked her aboard for a look at my...star charts.

It was on the train to the Big Twelve Grand
Where the children of MOAB took their stand.
They had to stand for they could not sit
'Cause the place was hip-deep in bullshit.

Now Amos Jesup was the engineer
Of that train a-headed for nowhere.
With his steely eye and his bulldog jaw
He looked a lot like your mother-in-law

And the fireman was named Kid Rapaire
A bookworm with a quiet stare
And the quickest "OVERDUE" stamp in the west
And a forty-four beneath his vest

On lookout was Stilly River Sage
A stalwart gal by any gauge
A crack shot with an old six-shooter
And hell on a laptop computer.

And among the passengers on that train
Was Mmario and Bunnahabhain,
And Rustic Rebel, a guy named Giok,
And khandu, Tweed, and Little Hawk.

And in the back, in the caboose,
Was Bee-dubya, sometimes known as Bruce.
The janitor upon that train
An idjit with just half a brain.

Now the train was hummin' down the track
Bullshit a-blowin' from its BS stack
When Stilly cried "What's that ahead?
It looks just like Flamingo Ted!

That thief of posts of even hundred!"
But then it was Rapaire's gun thundered
And Ted was gone, his ass was toast,
He'd never steal another post..

And Amos poured upon more coal
For up ahead he saw the goal
The twelve-thousandth holy MOAB post
But then he turned white as a ghost!

For on the tracks there stood a fellow
A tub of lard with eyes of yellow
A talentless blob wrapped in fat
And Amos cried, "It's Bill the Shat!

The scourge of all in MOABland,
('Cept Little Hawk, Shat's biggest fan.)"
And once again Rapaire's gun sounded
And off the tracks that Shatner bounded.

And the MOAB train it blew right by
It spit BS in Shatner's eye.
The passengers began to cheer
The Big Twelve Grand was getting near!

But would they reach that hallowed ground
Without some jackass coming 'round
And as a joke, a goof, a whim
Taking that holy post from them?

We'll know in just a few more posts
And then we can sit back and coast
'Til thirteen-thousand comes around
Or Max decides to shut us down.

Way up high in the Mudcat peaks, where the yellow GUESTS grow tall
Old Ken Khandu started thread about BS one fall.
Then they talked about horses and freds and Ralphs and maybe a dog or two
And they swore they'd post 'most everything that came within their view.
And any 'Catters that flapped their jaws and didn't bathe each day
Got to post BS and carry on in a most artistic way.

Now one fine day old Bee-Dubya-Ell he throwed his wedged clay down
"Well I'm sick of the smell of these burnin' pots, and I allows I'm a goin' to town!"
So him and Amos saddles up and hits a lope, for they weren't much for a ride
And them was the days when could oil up their insides.
Oh they starts her off at The Tweezer's Place at the head of Whiskey Row
And they winds up down at the Christmas Tavern some forty drinks below.
And then they sets up and turns around and drinks her the other way
And to tell you folks the goddamned truth, them boys got stewed that day!

Now, as they was a-ridin' back to camp a packin' a pretty good load
Well who should they meet but Mom herself a-striding down the road!
Says she, "You ornery musical skunks, you better hunt your holes!
For I've found what you've done and I have come to blister you head to soles!"
Says Ol' Bee-Dub, "Well, I'll be damned! Us boys is kinda tight,
But MOM! We was just havin' some fun, and you said it was alright!"

Well, Amos started sniveling, and his tears fell straight and true,
But Mom hoisted him up by his left ear, and she pulled 'til it turned blue!
Now Bee-Dubya-Ell was a pottery man, and wedged his clay right neat,
And he didn't think, but grabbed some mud and groveled at Mom's bare feet!

Well, she kicked him one, and stretched him out, and then grabbed his right-hand ear,
And she frog-marched them a mile or two, then kicked 'em in the rear!
"No kids of are gonna consort with GUESTS, and...Oh, my land!
You keep this up and Flamenco Ted will grab that big twelve grand!"

And both them boys (they was sober now) they pled and cajoled and prayed
And finally Mom relented, providin' they blocked a Teddy raid.
So both them boys are sittin' there, necked to their keyboards tight
And they don't neither drink nor eat, protectin' a MOABite's right!

We were thirty posts from the big Twelve Grand,
Hard along the MOAB Trail;
We were seasoned hands of the MOAB kind,
And none of us was frail
So when Mom said, "Boys,
It's time to move,
Make 'em up and move along!"
We were ready with the BS brand
And we started up right strong.

Now one er two had had the flu
An' wasn't feeling spry.
But every hand in MOAB land
Said they'd damn well give a try.
So they heated up their tired brains,
And they stretched another strand
'Cuz the Boss, Ole Maw, had laid out the law
We was bound to make twelve grand.

Ole BWL, well, it's hard to tell,
How he come to meet his fate
He was typin' hot, but he hits some pots,
And ev'ything had ter wait.
But the rest of, hell, we understood,
What pot can do to a man;
So we tightened our belts, and oiled our pelts,
Heading on toward the big Twelve Grand.

Now, big Rapaire, he was feelin' rare,
And was riding in top form.
He could write great stuff full of fancy fluff,
Far above the av'rage norm.
But the Idaho Legion sent out a call,
Said they needed every hand,
So he called in sick (though Mom knew his tricks)
Left one less fer the ole Twelve Grand.

There's a few of still, and we onward spill,
Letting BS bravely fly,
And we'll raise our toasts, and make our posts,
An' we'll reach Twelve Grand er die!
And we ain't too neat but we'll keep our feet
And will bravely make a stand
Heading into time, till we cross the line
And the MOAB makes Twelve Grand!

Instant grits are an abomination! Regular grits aren't anything to write home about, but instant grits are only good for one thing. Spread dry instant grits on ant beds and when the ants eat them they'll swell up in the ants' digestive tracts, killing the little buggers.

Unfortunately, no similar beneficial use has been found for haggis.

We hire ours out, too. Might have saved the ol' marriage. Besides, it costs about US $ 350, but we get about (literally) ten times that back. I consider it a good investment.

It is Easter. I made grits souffle, smoked sausage, and fresh strawberries for breakfast.

Grits Souffle
(Quantities and temperatures are US, so adjust accordingly)

2 cups milk
1/2 cup instant grits
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3 eggs, seperated

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 1 1/2 quart casserole or souffle dish (I use butter).

Scald the milk; add grits and cook until thick, stirring constantly. Add salt, baking powder, butter and sugar; mix well. Beat egg yolks and add to grits.

Whip egg whites until they hold soft peaks and fold into grits mixture. Pour into prepared dish.

Bake at 375 degrees F. for 30 minutes and serve hot. Will serve 6, but more likely 4, or if you really like it as we do, 2.

HINT: Before adding egg white, mix in 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese and a dash of tabasco sauce. (I realized this morning that some finely dices mild green chiles would work well with the cheese and tabasco sauce. I also used Tiger Sauce this morning because I didn't have any tabasco and it worked very well.)


This recipe came from Christina Campbell's Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg, so don't go sniffin' in the air and think that it takes like watery grits. It doesn't. In fact, I'm make it more often if I had the time. Make it, serve it, and don't tell 'em what it is until after they say "YUM YUM YUMMY!"

Mom, looks like we're here all by ourselves. The guys must be out hiding eggs for neighborhood children. My kiddos are big enough they don't need eggs hidden (and we ate a good number of those wonderful Cadbury eggs during the last couple of weeks).

Still working on my taxes, Schedule A. Didn't have enough stolen that was not reimbursed by the insurance company to equal 10 percent of my adjusted salary, so I've stopped on that form and am working on the one to do with "Taxes You Paid" on Schedule A, lines 5 - 8. I shouldn't be playing on the computer at all except I had to come look up page five of the instructions for Schedule A. . .

Sorry to have been away so long, MOM. I'm a late one this year, spending the day doing my taxes. Every step seems to involve research and finding a folder with a form, and then finding the corresponding IRS publication with one paragraph that pertains to my number. I'm on Schedule A right now and realize one company didn't send me the form they should have so I have to fill things out a little differently and report the points on refinancing the house myself. The really slow part was the state sales tax, but by going through my receipts and totalling them I'll get a lot more back, since the allowance is about 1/3 of the actual amount I spent this year (the burglary and replacement equipment was part of it).

But everyone else probably had their taxes in a long time ago so isn't interested in this saga so I'll stop now. (Now that I've finished printing up form 4684 and instructions for casualties and thefts. . . I shoulda started this earlier, but I've had so many things to do this spring and I was sick with the crud for a whole month. . . I haven't even had time to put in a GARDEN, Mom! Whaaa!)

Time for bed. . .

Among my collection of power tools I have a circular saw. I don't know why they call it that because it's only good for sawing in straight lines. Try to use it to cut a circle and you'll probably cut your finger off instead.

I also have a jig saw with which I'm extremely dissapointed. When you turn it on it only goes "Whirrrrrrr...." I expected it to go, "WHIR, whir, whir, WHIR, whir, whir."

But, you see, misspelling "wrong" as "rong" goes well beyond merely negating the stated claim of infallability. It invalidates the entire concept, therefore making the "SHATNER" null, void, and utterly pointless! Look for the subtleties. Look for the innuendos. Look for the double entendres. Look for the union label!
