Silly man. Language, ordinary and creative use of, is not plagiarism; while I am sure it would make you comfortable not to know the difference, there is no sense in pretending.

Then there came the hero Amos
Red his rod and red his ringlets
Dripping downward hiding fright-face
Hiding hideous halfling haunted
Gripping grimly a Gibson guitar
Quite at ready to marinate Martins.
This was Amos who fought the sea-mares
Fought the whale-fish fought the monster
Grendel's son hight Junior Grendel
Left him there sword-slashed and axe-cleaved
Long his mother weeped   o'er "Junie"
Long her eyes shed drops of salt-water
Until the Ocean rose itself up
Left its banks its meets and bounds
Leaving longships high on hillocks
Leaving longships moored on mountains
Heroes gon a-viking stranded 'til succumbed they to the sea.
Loud the weeping women mourned   mourned for men who'd come no more
Loud the keening of the kinder kith and kin killed by the waves.
Loud the cursing of dark Hela   adding rooms to her abode
For but few Valhalla-choosen   far but few heroes lived then
But for Amos him the hero who had caused this awful slaughter
Who had brought down Hela's wrath   her dark wrath up his head
She then cursed his Gibson guitar   her curse upon his fingers ten
Cursed to play a cursed Martin   or a cursed Apollonio
Cursed to play a Walmart Special left him cried forever more.

    --The Gruntersaga, ca. AD 784, trans. from Elder Erse, from
       runes of Skuffi Sigirdsdotter.

Amos,

Do you deny that every single word you have ever used to post ANYWHERE on Mudcat (and elsewhere) wasn't plagiarized, lifted and used without proper citation and attribution, from not one, but several, dictionaries? (Merriam Webster New Collegiate Dictionary, p. 1 et seq.)

Deny this if you dare!!! (Op. cit.)

"closet Republican"

That sounds sordid and kinky. Kinda like that trickle down stuff that you see on the internet and those sordid and kinky TV channels... like CNN and worse.

I defy you, sirrah, to find ONE iota ofg plagiarism in this thread posted by myself. This is rampant scurrilous projection on your part, and well you know it.

Fie on you, you closet Republican!

Amos, from old San Diego,
Was naught but guitar strings and ego
To cut Rap down to size
He'd oft plagarize
And then blame it on "El Diablo."

Ah woe, 'tis woe, when each line faire
Must always come here from elsewhere;
When deep reflections are in droughth
Except from some else's mouth
And we'll not ring the champions bells
For thoughts that come from someone else!

Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,
Tho' we know too well that Dust prevail;
Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie,
Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer and--sans Email!

Ice-creak-speak is a dizzying tongue
ANd only spoken by the young
It rules the minds of kids who get it
Until they're twelve, when they forget it!
But young ones know, when feeling weak
The answer lies in ice-cream speak!

Give thy thoughts no tongue,
Nor any unproportioned thought his act.
Be thou familiar, but by no means vulgar.
Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
Of each new-hatch'd, unfledged comrade. Beware
Of entrance to a quarrel, but being in,
Bear't that the opposed may beware of thee.
Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice;
Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.
Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
But not express'd in fancy; rich, not gaudy;
For the apparel oft proclaims the man,
And they in France of the best rank and station
Are of a most select and generous chief in that.
Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Last time I saw my grand parent's grave in PA I had a truck, a trailer, and a tired toddler with me and couldn't do more than nod hello, but one day I'll go revisit some of those, and hopefully have the grown kids with me so they know where these things are. Few in the rest of the family know.

Fall seems to be arriving overnight. I saw a good eggplant in the garden, so I'll grab it, and I'll cover my one intact acorn squash on the vine, see if it will ripen all the way.

I'm glad Eiseley has good squashes to bake. I picked mine too early (seems the stems have to almost fall off) so I'll have to use them in things like soups or beans.

Butternut squash pie - what a great name! Make sure you have plenty of butter and nuts along with the butternut! Mom says butter and nuts and butternuts sound like they would go real well with hot buttered rum. Seems like she's getting into the wintry and holiday mood!

Well, my brother Tony and I went to visit Ye Olde Family Graves today, and my brother's tombstone is very nice indeed. They do wonderful things with laser engraving these days, far more than I could ever do with simple sandblast. Cleaned up the headstones of my parents and both sets of grandparents, too.

A beautiful Fall day, temperature about 68F. I'm heading back that way tomorrow and intend, at some point, to visit my sister.
