Her father has been, and continues to be, quite ill and hospitalized in Silver Spring, MD. We may have to make a frenzied trip out that way this weekend, but we hope not. Pat's been gone since Memorial Day weekend, an unintentionally lengthened jaunt in the East.

The evening and the day wore on,
Our lives were full of bother.
We posted when we had the time,
To our ever-bouyant Mother.
It was BS here, and BS there,
We'd not give up the ghost.
For we knew that somewhere down the road
Lay the Thirteen Thousandth Post.

Like the Grail of old, that number bold
Drew all our fevered dreaming
And if we let it fall to some drive-by cad,
We'd all be in for reaming.
We could hear the cheers and the bold halloos,
And the happy honoring toasts,
So we took the time to step once more
Toward the Thirteen Thousandth Post.

And if men died in far off lands,
And honor died betrayed,
And if we marched like Moses' band
Back into lives as slaves,
If virtue failed, and courage quailed,
And reason left for the coast,
Why, it's nothin' to us -- why raise a fuss?
Where's that Thirteen Thousandth Post?

Not to cause unpleasant associations, but I lost my mother on Memorial Day (observed) several years ago. It's difficult to live so distant from parents and have to come and go when you'd like to just stay with them for a while if you could at a time such as this. I had just returned to Texas for a few days when Mom died. Best wishes to both of you.

On another matter, did anyone else see the fine succinct discussion of duck dogs that BWL published elsewhere in the 'Cat? (here, for your reference)

Don't believe her! Belief in anyplace on the Mudcat besides MOAB means your soul will rot, eternal torment will be yours forever (even if that is redundant) and you will never ever have matching socks.

oh! almost forgot. At the wedding I sang at Saturday - one of the gifts the bride and groom got was a wooden pestle like vase-like object - and they looked at each other and said "Spatula crock!!!" - because they have an entire drawer full of spatulas. Made me homesick for the cat.

How do you insert the te? The only place that makes sense in conventional English generates Mathematical problems instead. Of course neither apply consistantly round here, but I'm still puzzled. Not that this is anything new....

I don't know how Rapaire inserted the 'te' -

The rude response, (which since MOM raised me correctly I won't use) would be "sideways".

I would suggest an edit button - but that might risk a visitation by The Shambles.

Anyone think we can hit 13000 by 4:30 when I go home?

I don't think that is necessary. YOu could be posting page after page of repetitious cut and paste quotes. That would be truly nont in the spirit of things, but you have been terse, but properly conversational.

On the other hand, none of this has really been quality BS if you know what I mean.

so - in an effort to raise the BS level...ahem.....

I was researching percussion instruments the other day and came across a fascinating monograph of a pioneer in big band music, Efrem Cympalist, JR., whose technique was considered, in his day, to be unbeatable.

Oh, how the quality has fallen! Woe unto ye, ye who drag the quality of BS through a sieve so that it is strained! For MOAB will surely not only strain thou thouself, but e'en rupture thou! And then thou will find not only that thou are weeping and gnashing teeth but lying in the roadsides, and in the gutters, and amidst whitened sepulchres, busily straining out gnats and swallowing camels! Woe to ye, I say, and woe unto the womb that bore thee and the breasts that gave thee suck, suckers! For in that time ye shall have no recourse but to be numbered amidst the sheep and goats awaiting branding, for with the branding comes the cutting and the men amongst thou won't care for that one little bit! And thou wilt suffer the fire that is never quenched and the beer that quenches not, unless thou restoreth unto Mother the quality that is verily and truly her due!

So kneel and beg her forgiveness and promise never to do it again and maybe, just maybe, Mother will let you have dessert tonight.

strain thou thouself,
Surely you mean strain thee, thyself, (or thine own self)

but e'en rupture thou!

Perhaps "rupture thee" might do better

And then thou will find not only that thou are weeping

Normal usage requires "thou art"

and gnashing teeth but lying in the roadsides, and in the gutters, and amidst whitened sepulchres, busily straining out gnats and swallowing camels!

Mayhap straining at gnats?

Woe to ye, I say, and woe unto the womb that bore thee and the breasts that gave thee suck, suckers!

Prefer "ye" so the plurals are in agreement.

and the men amongst thou won't care for that one little bit!

One can only assume "amongst you" is intended.

And thou wilt suffer the fire that is never quenched and the beer that quenches not, unless thou restoreth unto Mother the quality that is verily and truly her due!

Prefer "quencheth not".


So kneel and beg her forgiveness and promise never to do it again and maybe, just maybe, Mother will let you have dessert tonight.

Why bother -- it's just desserts?

And they strove and strained and overbore,
And bored e'en overmore
And gnashed their teeth and rambled far,
And hissed and cursed and swore.
And each one vowed he would peak the lot,
Each one would post the most!
But the dust went down, and the darkling town,
Still lacked what they sought the most --
The Thirteen Thousandth Post!

Then up did step our bold Rapaire
With vim and vigor shining,
ANd he loudly said he'd do the trick
With Elizabethan whining
But he botched the case, and the nouns and verbs
And the "thees" and "thines" were toast
And when he lay down, pale from his round,
No-one had seeen the ghost
Of the Thirteen Thousandth Post!

Fair Bunnhabain took up the train,
And spouted like a swivel
But he torched his soul at the firing hole
ANd what came forth was drivel.
ANd the rest of the crowd stood and sighed aloud,
And the air bore ne'er a boast
For though deep the night, there was never a sight
From the rivers to the coast,
Of that Thirteen Thousandth Post!

"You're all depraved! Your work is dross!"
He started out to say.
He thought he'd bring in Shatner
Or his fat and shimmering ghost.
But for the talk of Little Hawk,
Of Deity, grace, and Host,
Not a single saw had seen a trace
Of that Thirteen Thousandth post.

The gracious form of Still was seen
All svelte and shapely looking
But she had no time for foolish rhymes,
When dinner needed cooking.
So the town-folk stood in dull respect,
In cyber-cold glasznost
And wondered who or what might bring
The end to thir imposte --
That Thirteen Thousandth Post.

Sweet Laura sang, and faded off,
And MM took up the cross.
"We're only ten to go! To fail,
Would be a bitter loss!"
So he dreamed about a drummer boy
Who dined on cheap pork roast.
And posted that. But still none saw
The Thirteen Thousandth Post.

Just nine were left, but not a soul
Of those whom Mother raised
Could think of anything to say
They were numbed, and dulled, and fazed.
And even Gluon, bless his soul,
For all his verve and spark
Could not, for those who mattered most,
Raise up a single Quark
Or a Thirteen Thousandth post!
