We haven't seen Bunn around here in ages. Another reminder.

One of my guests last night dropped a plastic sack with her knitting in it out in the yard. She drove back a few minutes after leaving the house when she realized it had gone missing, but we looked in the house, not the yard. I had an email overnight--"can I come back and look again?"

When I went to get the paper this morning it was still pretty dark, but I spotted a green ball and a knitting needle on the lawn near a cactus, and I walked around and found another at the street curb next door. (It froze last night, no rain, so these were in great shape.) I returned to the house to fix an early breakfast for Caroline who had to drive back to her college town to work this morning, and she dressed and went to look for more, returning with another ball of yarn and a tangled frozen mat of green. It hadn't been so fortunate as the balls. The 12 inches or so of knitting had landed in the sandy wet spot at the bottom of the driveway across the street, and when my neighbor drove in after work (midnight) he drove across it. Caroline returned with a stiff plank of wool and leaves and sand all frozen into an odd-shaped tile, suspended on a knitting needle.

I thawed the yarn, rinsed it in ice cold water, used a little gentle hand soap to lift the sand colored stain, and though the "ball" that had been attached to it is a leafy tangle broken in a few places, it looks like the project survived. She called this morning and was amazed to learn that her knitting had wandered over three yards and into the woods (we still didn't find one set of circular needles. They may have been picked up by an early dog walker.)

I'll pop this in the mail this afternoon and though they don't advertise Sunday pickup, my post office usually has one. She should get this tomorrow. She was amazed, and said "I'll have to blog this."

High above Potomac's waters
With their waves of brown
Stands the nation's sole salvation
Don't let the sewage plant shut down.

Christmas cookies on the platter,
Cooling while our Mom gets madder,
She loves making MOABs fatter
Waiting drives her mad as hatters.
Time goes by and things get badder,
Stilly tiptoes, pitter-patter,
Janie, Bunn and Hawk all flatter
Other Moms, while ours grows sadder.
And Rapaire, that midnight padder,
Shun like fat-cat cad her
Wishes, leaves her feelings flatter,
Drinking, laughing, making chatter,
Where the power-dollars clatter.
Meanwhile, my heart just grows gladder,
Looking at that Xmas platter!
Back above I quickly sat her,
At the top, our stalwart Mater!
Up from the pit of past's dark adders,
Come, now friends! Now up and at her!
End your nounless nabob natter,
Make your neighbors cease their pratter,
Talk of Rome, Tehran or Qatar,
Come! Help Mom back up the ladder!

A quick look in before heading to bed. I'm bushed. The turkey was great. Thanks for the reminder of the floor a year ago. I'm going to finish some more of that work this holiday break. At this rate I might finish by the time I retire. :-/

Mom:

I know you have been waiting for the others to get home to share your new home-made Christmas Cookies, and I am sure they will be here soon; but just for now I will have a few off the edge of the plate to make sure they are still fresh, okay?? You know how Rapaire is once he starts hobnobbing with lobbyists. It brings out his inner Republican...

There are things in life top be grateful for. For example, a year ago at this time, Stilly had interrupted putting in her new floor in order to prepare against a tornado which had just missed wiping out W in Crawford. And Rapaire was throwing up in D.C. and ruining his vacation.

So far, Rapaire sounds okay this year.

The math book was a yellow soft cover. The year was 1961. The grade was 6th. The word was binary.

Almost did a horrible faux pas with one of those loaves. I took two to work, but as I spoke with one co-worker I realized that those spiked raisins simply wouldn't do--the other friend is Muslim. I asked him about his views on alcohol, then told him about that ingredient. I'll see about taking in another type of bread tomorrow. I'm glad I realized that mistake when I did.

Long day out with my youngest, shopping. Didn't buy much, but talked over the pros and cons of several possible purchases.

I hate it when a perfectly friendly but sorta tangential post gets left twisting int he wind with no support. Lime MM suggesting that Stilly should pop some rasins. Perfectly kind impulse, a decent thing to say. But when it is the last post in a long silence it sort of echoes down through the valleys.

Pop a few raisins, Stilly....."

Mom, I've been slaving over a hot oven this morning, making a double batch of my popular pumpkin bread. This time I had about a half-cup extra pumpkin so I tossed it in. "If a little is good, more is better" does work in this kind of cooking. I also soaked the raisins in brandy for several days so they're particularly flavorful, and put in half-again as many raisins and walnuts as the recipe calls for. I'll take a couple to work to curry favor with co-workers and pop the rest in the freezer as handy bricks loaves to give as forgotten impromptu gifts.

Dear Mom,

Again they left you fall and again I have rescued you from A Fate Almost Worse Than Death. But I can't stay because I have to fly to DC. That George and Laura! they're have "problems" again: George is drinking and messing around with That Other Woman and Laura has moved into a small apartment in the Library of Congress so she can be away from George and closer to Henry Reid, her current heart-throb. Sigh. Anyway, I'll let you know how things are as soon as possible...maybe tonight, most likely tomorrow.

Try to keep Amos sober. Maybe standing outside the tavern, begging him to come home, will work (but I doubt it).

Your fave rave,
R

Go away for a little while and see what pops up! Here is an NPR story about the Mormon/Jewish problem.

The jacket is not "pro-" it is decidedly "anti," and I'd be willing to bet this woman did know which way that band leans. I received a card from a fellow I met for the first time a couple of weeks ago at a library meeting. I'd taken photos of people attending and he emailed to ask for a copy. I sent it, and this week received a card that he'd offered my name up for a month of prayers on my behalf at a Carmelite monastery or something or other. Rather presumptuous--did he assume because my name is Irish that I'm Catholic? I wasn't impressed.

I know a lot of people who take their religion very seriously, and that's not a problem. It's those who don't realize that all religions are important and they shouldn't be trying to legislatively impose what they think is their "one true religion" on everyone else, in the process supressing the beliefs of others. Keep religion out of government and schools and secular society; keep it private and in the appropriate buildings or venues.

Off my soap box.

From "The Spoof", an Onion wannabe:

"WASHINGTON, DC -- Rabbi Jacob Baer stood before his congregation at Temple Sinai on Military Road yesterday morning, poised to perform a ritual that he had perfected just hours before. On a long table before him were a silver bowl, a small dark blue bottle, a lighted candle, a lockbox, and a blow dryer.

The Rabbi poured an ounce of Christian Holy Water from the bottle into the bowl. He removed from the lockbox a parchment scroll bearing a list of Jewish names and ignited it over the candle. When the scroll was entirely consumed, Baer sprinkled the ashes into the bowl, then pointed the blow dryer at it and turned the dial to full blast. Within 10 minutes, the water had evaporated.

Rabbi Baer had just performed what religion scholars believe to be the first "Reverse Baptism" in history.

"The article in yesterday's Washington Post was the last straw. I could not let this stand," he told reporters, who had been invited to witness the rite."...

Why not just use a playground and merry-go-round?

But most of the proxies are students at BYU, and since they don't drink, smoke or mess around there isn't much left for them to remember of their college days.

...The Baptismal pool,
The proxy names,
The year we lost to Notre Dame,
We'll have these moments to remember....
