I just got new pics for my YT vid today! I am stoked! Off to work! Not that it matters a whit to any of you that I have poured my heart and soul into a project that I found distressing from the start. I mean, it's just a song, right? Fuck all to a wee rhyme eh? Unless you write it for soemone else and you have to get their message across.

Have ANY of you done this? Tried to write just a simple protest song/prose/poetry for someone else? I have written a lot of stuff that is in the vault but all of it is just "for me".

Seriously, have you tried to write something to express the views and concerns of others? I still find my product lacking because I didn't address all of their issues. NObody wants a song that long. >;-)

I watched the brilliant red orb of the Sun sink behind the Missouri foothills and bathe the Mississippi with its glow. I saw the mountains of Utah merge into those which surround Denver, and those flatten into the plains of Kansas and Missouri. I dared to drive across the Wide Missouri River in a rainstorm so fierce that it was as if a fire hose was playing full force against me. And now, at peace, I can at last watch the lights of the bridges spanning the Father of Waters glitter on the wavetops below.

Writing from the POV of someone not oneself is fraught with ambiguities. I have a dear female friend - and known to most of you - who has written songs in the name of someone else- and an acquaintance said to her, I didn't realize you have a daughter.

Notwithstanding that the song mentions 'Daddy'.

Incidentally, the acquaintance is a psychologist. :)

Slightly over a thousand more, Ebbie. That much BS comes out of Juneau is just a few hours -- when the legislature is in session, I mean.

Thanks, Ebbie. Re 50k... Rap was a boy sprout and is required to "Be Prepared". The rest of us are simply humouring him (he is armed to the teeth!).

I am not! I'm in Quincy, Illinois and peaceful and kind and courteous and friendly and cheerful and thrifty and helpful and the very epitome of the Boy Scout Law and the Acts of Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, not to mentions the Gifts of the Holy Ghost, the Eight Beatitudes, the Ten Commandments, the Seven Glorious and Joyful Mysteries, the Seven Sisters, the Forty Days in the Desert, the Eight Phases of Mitosis and the Five Cards of a Royal Flush.

Where ever you are, I am there. If you are looking West, I am in the East. If you hide you will be found. If you are below I am above, if you are above I am below. You cannot run fast enough, you cannot run far enough, you cannot hide well enough, you cannot have enough cover or concealment. Night, fog, smoke, darkness are all useless, for you will be be a target if I wish you to be. You cannot conceal your tracks, you cannot hide you scent.

I will find you. You have no recourse should I wish to do so.

The long and endlessly faskinatin' voyage approaches its southern terminus; I have been in Nawth Carolina, the GRand Northern State, for a number of days now (don't ask which number as I have lost count in my meandering mind). I stayed a day with Bill and Rita in Maryland and then drove seven long hours to arrive at Sir Beaubear's most amazing estate tucked back in the wooded farmlands of Wingate, North Carolina, a short distance from the border with South Carolina. My stay with Bobert and Peavine was indescribably delicious. We hoisted and hauled thirty bales of hay from the neighbor's horse farm and stacked them in Bobert's barn. We went to the amazing reborn city of Charlotte and dined on pulled pork and beef brisket. We swapped songs in Bobert's secret lair, where all the mind-blowing stories are born, and dug out mud from the creek where fallen trees had choked the flow. We talked to Famous and Ghost (horses) and discussed affairs with a black cat named Kendall. Bobert and Peavine demonstrated their fencing techniques, a masterful demonstration of marital harmony and counter-point refined to a scintillating edge. We laughed a great deal. Peavine sang for us, and showed me her array of plantings, a subject of which she is an Ascended Master. With great regret, I left their sweet plantation.

I have come now, after several hours of driving, back to Hillsboro, the sweet spot of North Carolina, where I have settled down at Dani's lovely cottage in the trees, and peace reigneth upon the land. Herself is off to work, and a light rain has ended the most recent drought here, and the trees are wet and green, the spider webs sparkle like jewels, and all is well with the world. Aside from an occasional burst of public radio I have been exposed to almost no news or chatter from the media for some time, and I am finding it is quite salubrious to my mental state.

In two weeks, the World-Famous Getaway!! The Grand Reunion of Singing Souls from All Over Earth!

You-all come, y'hear? Gosh-all Hemlock, yes!

Lo, like the dawning of inevitable day
Approaches now the Next of Kay.
Time and the world march on; duress
Forces the birth of New BS
And every voice partakes the line
That leadeth the Kays to Forty-Nine!
Now all our art and skill and tricks
Reduce the gap of posts to six
And ere the day or week are through,
The Forty-Ninth Kay will come through.
Than shall our labors doubled be
As raising our eyes aloft, we see
Like a glimmering star of hope divine
The Fiftieth follows Forty-Nine!

Tho' the poet remains anonymous
Cognoscenti know it's just Amos
Trifling again with foot and rhyme
Desperately clutching at sublime
Meter, scansion, words and verse
Making matters ten time worse
Forcing rhymes and sense attack
Hashing, grunting, pushed syntax
Everything to assume a part
That rhymes to create a word like "art".

I do indeed, Rap. Why, he even complimented me and I can assure you, as one who was once a master of Rhan, I suck. The only good thing nowadays is that my affliction and my injury preclude me from sucking for any length of time, thereby lessening my embrassment.

Mum picked the Chiefs and I am sure she cheered all six sacks on Vick as much as I did. She's goin Pats, Skins, Broncos and, just for olddude, her upset pick is Steelers at home but she ain't got no coin on that one (pretty sure Dan don't neether).

Mum and I are watching NFL on Fox Sunday and they are about to do a piece on the best QB in a high powered offense so we still have time to bet against that team. I am trying to convince her to go havsies on a two dollar bet. I still have $2.89 in my account but she won't cough up the coin so it comes down to trusting her to pay up tomorrow. I asked her to sign an affidavit so she can't blame the beer if she "forgets". When someone won't sign and date their words... I must see how beer are in her cooler. She ran out on Thursday night and I said, "Help yourself." Bad move.

I am sorry to report that I am flying home, else I would be in Fort Worth shortly after the Getaway. I have turned in my little red rental car and hanging out at Dani's this week. Today I am helping organize the basement. There's a guy down the road selling a Harley Wide Glide from 1981 for 8 grand, but it sounds like the sound track to a bad motorcycle gang film. Hillsboro, Nawth Carolina is a grand rown full of angelic sprites like Dani and Janie. Last night she invited a couple of score friends over and we raised the roof some to good effect. Janie's sister Annie even came and played the fiddle, which was a special treat. Mighty good times, mighty good. The Hran is here, next to Dani's banjo, but so far she has stuck to playing the fridge, the range and the skillet. All of which she does exceeding well, I must add.

Rapparee deserves a medal for hauling Mom up from the basement, but then karma is always difficult to figger.

He'd NEVER buy a bike. Unless he could get a bullet proof case for that lovely geetar. I approached it and looked at it closely, from a short distance, and then asked if i could touch it. One should never touch another man's instrument without permission. He said, "Sure. Play it if ya want to." I said, "Oh! I wish I could still do that." I checked the action from first fret to last on the biggest and littlest strings by gently poking them every few frets without taking the geetar from it's recline against my living room curtain. Perfection. I looked at A and said, "Nice, man." He replied, "I like it." I smiled, knowing that he would soon again make that action react. He did. Magical evening it was.

I have often thought that I wish I had somehow "videotaped" every kitchen session I ever had whether they me eves of music or just banter so that I could share them with all and sundry. If I had, A and G's visit would be among the top favs. A lot of laughs, good tunes and enlightening conversation. Maybe I shoud try to keep this dump cleaned up so I could accept more visitors... even ladies of the female persuasion. Hmmm... that would require a LOT more housework. I mean, Gabe went barefoot where a lady would not dare to tread!

C4 all his troubles? That would indeed be "interesting".

I received an urgent communication from a lad earlier today enquiring after a delivery that he made to my humble abode whilst the Pats were in the process of thrashing their third opponent of the Yankee Football season. I went fire forward immediately. Normally, I would have fired upon opening the door when being taken away from a Pats game but, when I saw he was bearing gifts, I lowered my weapon. When he said "Mooze and bar clams.", I safetied backward and accepted. I even took time to tell him the score in the Pats game before I said, "I gotta get back to the game. Thanks." and shut the door. His message read, "Try the mooze yet?" Normally, I tell people to "just leave me alone" but I made an exception in this case and responded as follows...

Nope. Beer and chicken wings on Sundays and Mondays (football)*. Tuesday is garbage day upon which all leftovers are eaten or chucked. Wednesday is diet day with fruit & veggies. Thursday is diet day with fruit & veggies and beer (football). Fish on Fridays. So it'll be Saturday at the earliest, later if the weather is warm.

* Week 2, 4, 6... are wing weeks.** Week 1 is chili week as it's always warm enough to open the windows. Week 3, normally Bratwurst, hot Italian, etc sausage week (see week 1 for supporting details) has recently be rescheduled to burger week (BBQ looks possible) as Coop has lean burger for $2.49, Vlassic pickles on 50p off with coupon attached to jar. HINT : The coupons are on old stock (and in my wallet) but the new stock is in the rear of the shelf. Vlassic is USA. Do not support you local Coop brand pickles as they are from India. Note that Coop has the best price on Vidalias.

**Wing weeks may be altered upon a vote by quorum the preceding week but mooze and bar clams are NOT options on accounta I ain't tellin NObody shit! Also, wing weeks may be altered to Sal's Pizza if Sal has the 16 Works pies on for $15. Best buy in town!!! Plus, I can stagger there and back... them there $515 pizzas do not interest me. AND, the buggers are cold by the time ya get yer truck outta impound!

PS RG3 sucks! WHO IN FUCK DUNNO HOW TO TUCK???!!! What the fuck was he doin pretendin ta be a back in the first place? QBs do NOT fall forwrad in open field. I hope the dumb fuck got a hefty club fine fer that shit! Cost me COIN and braggin rights.

PSS Ya like cherry matahs? I might have some extra. Depends on the rain... I lost about 100 last big rain.

Sometime this week I'll re-visit my old duty station, Ft. Sumter. I hope that it's in better shape than when I last saw it.

Amos, if Dani needs a Decoder Ring, I'll check with my friend Fargo North. He's in that business. Developed the so-far-unbreakable 2 bit encryption algorithm, he did. I'd explain it to you but it would undoubtedly be too complicated for you to understand.

Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads

Amos won't understand this, but this is how Fargo's 2-bit encryption system works:

Take your normal alphabet, A to Z and the number 0 to 9. Put 'em in a continuous line, then do it again under the first line but offset the characters one notch, with 9 under the A of the original line. Then do the same thing again but with 9 under the B of the top line. Or you can just skip the middle step and put 9 under B. Anyway, it ends up looking something like this:

ABCDE...
89ABC...

You can see how confusing this would be to anyone trying to crack the 2-bit encryption. The word "bad" would come out looking like "98B". But the real beauty of the thing is that you can use it either way: "98B" could be entered as "bad". You even write, "He is a 98B bad man" and nobody would know what you said!

This is all pretty easy with a supercomputer, though.

My advice - just freeze them and be done with it! Put them on a shallow baking pan with a rim and freeze them, then roll all of those tomato marbles into a zip lock bag and keep them for later. When you thaw them, the skins will slip off of them easily, you'll be squirting the insides of all of these tomatoes into a pan or bowl.
