Geeze, you guys. There goes the old Horse Race. It was gonna be such a dramatic ending too. Sigh. My fault. I shoulda known to keep an eye on things this close to the big 24 of K.
People have been known to kill where 24K is involved, you know...

This is small potatoes, Amos. He'll sleep it off for hundreds of posts, and meanwhile, you need to keep your eye on the far more substantial 25K.

Well...I dunno...it's a lot of work to transport a whole horse-race 1000 posts into the future. Maybe some other epic will have to do; it's probably easier to build from scratch in the 24-25K approach region.

Suggestions for Epic Themes welcome.

Kind of tearful beginning to the day--watched Meet the Press one more time. I often miss it, there are competing Sunday morning programs vying for my attention, but this was an important passage.

Back to the regular BS, all you Dad's and/or Father's of your domains.

I cut the lawn and put out some needed topsoil and grass seed. Pat and I went for a ride for about an hour, all she can take right now.

One thing I think is REALLY rude, LH, is when your chain has been yanked and you pretend not to notice...

I am thoroughly puzzled by Stilly's remarks. I think maybe it was her pit bull's chain that she was pulling instead. I have not noticed any sharp, tugging sensations at this end.

Numbnjess can be the symptom of serious dysfunctional syndromes, LH. When a pretty woman pulls your chain, you better notice!

There ARE dachshunds in Canada. Now go get 'em! And when you have, the Stars & Stripes will proudly fly over Canada just as it does over American Samoa, Guam, and parts of the Marshall Islands.

Here's one well chilled, but others are pretty tough.

Well, Mom, fencing is over for the season. I won't be going to Nationals or the Olympics, so I have wiped the blood off of my blades and put them away until September next. I'll practice as I can over the Summer, and otherwise relive my combats in my memories -- the screams of the wounded, the whimpers of the dying, the great gushing gouts of gore...ah, all put away until the Fall.

And so, until next year, the Scarlet Bookmeister contents himself with the mutilation of small, cylindrical canine objects, waiting for fall, when once again the hills will ring to the sound of his blade, and the rivers will turn pink with his rampaging spillage of human blood.

Somber shadows mark the trail, and cooling twilight winds shuffle the needles and leaves. It is a long slope, with many a dispiriting struggle in it. You can look up and up, with the lowering sun at your back, and face the grayness from which tomorrow -- and the Next Great K -- will be born into the world. The day to come is a speculation, an extension by intellect. Not all the conviction in the world will replace the arrival of the fact, as the thin, dark bands of night's darkness first start to tremble and yield to the marching, oncoming river of light that makes that fateful day materialize in your life. For it comes, as surely as your next breath, your next smile, your next heartbeat; be sure, it comes. It will come over those eastern shadowy peaks like a bolt of sunshine breaking into an ancient outhouse. The Great K will come. Be ready.

You may gloat, sir, ;litytle suspecting the trials and tribulations your small triumph has cost others, the pains they went to on your behalf, the deprivations they endured to ensure you were so gifted.

Well, sir, I predict that there is a grim comeuppance looming in your future and you will soon find the cowbird of ill fortune pecking at your window, the snake of vile calumny slithering down your driveway, and the polecat of universal rejection leaving a smelly and steaming "present" in your garden.

Where in West Virginia, sweet Mmario? Exactly where? Which Cracker Barrel? Was my cousin Billy there? Tall, anorexic looking fella who answers back to the voices in his head? Or my big red-headed cousin Charles and his little wife Linda? They would have been playing checkers while waiting for their party to be called.

Did you stop by Elmer and Beulah's farm, out on Turkey Creek? They're both buried out there, up on the ridge. I always think that if I were to go out there on a warm, Saturday night in June, and sit a spell on the porch steps, the noise of the insects, the frogs on the pond, and the wind in the trees would like as not resolve into the sound of stringed instruments, mountain voices, and the thump of feet clogging and flat-footing on the floorboards of the porch. Were the moon to be full enough to shed some light, I bet I'd see Elmer, frailin' away on his old banjo, gray-haired and plump Beulah leaning beside him on the rail, nodding in time to the music.   Glen would be leaning into the center of the circle, rosin rising from his bow like smoke in the dim light, and behind him and a little to the side, Tommy keeping everyone in perfect time with his rock-steady rhythm guitar playing. John wouldn't appear until it was late and time to slow things down just a bit with his country blues harmonica, and Kaye would by then be just tipsy enough to have the nerve to join in and sing nice harmony on the choruses.

When it got real late and the moon started going down, I imagine they'd all just gently fade into the dark. I'd stand up, brush the dust from the seat of my pants, and walk on back down the lane to my car, thinking, "Yep, those times were almost heaven."
