No, Amos, not all of what Rapaire described. Just your simple opportunist.

Rapaire, I do believe that is the rare endangered protected cancer-curing "Minute Pink" geranium. The root has many told and dreamed-of properties, and there is a bounty of $50,000 an ounce on the plant.

I sure hope you can catch the garbage truck this morning. . .

I don't think he's going to fall for becomeing a "Pink Minute Man", ready and willing to grab his trowel and turn out at any hour to defend the world against the overbearing turf-landers..."Muskets? Oh, no, silly, you must be thinking of the OTHER Minute People. We're the geranium minute people. We use garden tools..."

'Sokay. I got 'em out of the garbage and have sent them to SRS because I know she can use the money. No, don't bother to thank me because I do it because I like doing good for others.

Oh, good. Maybe it will compete with and eradicate the Virginia creeper I think I finally dislodged from over and around my office window. What that stuff does to wood and mortar. . . oy.

So I suppose making wise cracks about someone's minute pink trowel thingy would be out of the question?

Amos, if you'll send me your email address I'll forward to you all of the email I receive about making your minute pink trowel thingy larger, thicker, last longer, and in general endow you with a better life, approved loans, and cheap pharmaceuticals.

Treacle trickle?

The pink thingies do sound as if they might be one of the wild geraniums.

A stop at a nursery last evening elicited the answer: what I am try to eradicate is mallow. The nursery has a spray that will kill it quite dead -- and also the surrounding flowers, grass, shrubs, and vegetables.

Shucks, I've got some extended release Round-up that'll do that AND make the ground fallow for three months thereafter. (I use it on the golf course fence line and on the stuff that comes up in the cracks in the driveway. You can also use it to write stuff on your neighbor's lawn if you don't like your neighbor, but I wouldn't know about things like that.)

I am sure the mallows of the world -- the fen mallows, the bog mallows, the hill mallows, the valley mallows, the river mallows, and the marsh mallows -- will now see you as the Great Anti-Mallow and will pass the word to hinder you at every opportunity. You will never again be accepted as a mallow fellow. Not even yallow mallows will talk to you, cuz they're such mellow mallows. Best to let the subject lie fallow, fellow, for mallows will follow and fill your fate with failure and falling.

Try to remember that weed you dismembered
when Round up wouldn't turn it yellow
Try to remember, at least till September
That you are a kind, and gentle, fellow.
Try to remeber
for you *should* remember
The mallow

By Tuesday mid-day the shock of re-entry, the forlorn sense of deprivation and loss as one awakes to the cold reality that the weekend is gone and was spent in endless pursuit of others' goals, has begun to fade and the hope of making some distinct, if small, difference in the world again asserts its weaselly nose under the tent flap.

Well, he wanted to shred all the budget documents, but I needed them so he went through about 50 sheets of blank paper instead.

He's also intrigued by the ceiling fans. He'll grab a remote and play with them for literally minutes at a time.

He hides them under incidentals in the budget, but the truth is that the motive power for those fans that cool the Library is supplied by indentured Nubians, some of them as tall as the stacks behind which they are hidden.

Well, it's amazing what you can hide in a budget if you know how to pull the strings. A little investigation has revealed that is no ordinary sedan chair -- not for our Rapaire, no sirreee. Turns out, under "Office Supplies and Equipment", he managed to finance a Hummer SUV chair!! Its kinda like a sedan chair only wider, twice as many carriers, and they wear baseball cleats. Lots of chrome and leather, built in map system and iPod, all the bells.

Twinkies. Throw them far for rapid acceleration, or closer in for more gradual acceleration, or behind you for braking.

That's littering, Amos. No, I just tie 'em to a stick: a long stick to go fast and a short one to go slow. Remove the twinkie-on-a-stick for braking and hold it behind for reverse.

And here's a tip: cabbage and bean burritos provide that little extra "oompf" you sometimes need for passing, but you might fail an emissions test.

Well, it's a sedan chair, not a motor vehicle. And only motor vehicles can be sent to get an emissions test, at least by the DMV. That's why it is the DMV. I suppose cautious fiancees might want to require one, but that's an individual choice.

Or, as here, the Dither of Madness' Velleities. In any case, I have reconsidered; if you are going to be carried around by six sturdy indentured Nubians, you probably want an emiossions test, especially if they take lunch breaks at Jack-in-the-Box, assuming there is any jack in the box after such profligate disbursements...

Way up in Pocatello,
They do things oddly, very;
They sent out for a two by four,
For the City Main Library.
They don't say what they want it for,
Or how they want to use it;
The city fathers are afraid
Rapaire wants to abuse it.
Or maybe he has kinky help
Who'll sleep with it all winter,
And you can tell -- they'll be the ones
Complaining about splinters.
Or maybe its for splitting heads
Who irk the Chief Librarian
They say that in a past life, he
Was a wild disciplinarian.
But still, the mystery stands obscure,
And folks are all resigning
To never know the reason dark
Behind Rapaire's strange pining.

Hey, Mom! I fixed my back door (sliding glass type) this morning. Darn think wouldn't move on the track to save a life. It has been tough to open for ages. I finally took it down, put on new hardware, and it runs as smooth as can be! Now I can open it regularly (with the lightest touch!) to wave out the flies that came in this morning while it was out in the yard.

It's nice to be able to open the door so easily when I have to step outside with the million candle-power flashlight to see what the pit bull has found up a tree. Not sure this time, but I expect we'll find something in the yard in the morning. She's going full tilt back there tonight, to the point that she whalloped the blue heeler for getting in her way. Both are fine, but I follow the loud dog conversation as they conduct it. Lots of wags and apologies when I walk out with the light, but message taken: "Stay away from me and my possum while I'm hunting it!"

Nopthing nicer than a sliding door that really slides. We lived with a cranky one for years, constantly having to re-seat it on its track. Now we have a nice new doublepand, u-v filtering viny-clad replacement -- it is a delight.

Mom, I finished the whole job on the caulking and trim painting, at last.

Now I take down the ancient fence and move some tonnage of dirt before the landscapers arrive.

Did you ever replace the chicken wire that was all over your house? (Amos had put it up to ground the Signals which They were beaming into his house to Confuse him so he wouldn't notice the Men In Black in the Black Helicopters landing his back yard. This is all very understandable if you live in Southern California.)

The 2 x 4, by the way, is to replace the "foot" of some shelving we're moving elsewhere in the building. It's old, old shelving and you can't buy parts for it anymore, so we have to fabricate our own. Librarians can do anything, especially the way the budgets are.
