Yes, Ballsworthy is continually stalking and pestering the Rutledge clan, seeking to prise information out of their domestic staff, spreading dreadful rumours about supposed human sacrifices, and generally making an utter pest of himself. Something really should be done about it. Can't Winston talk to some of his old friends in the SAS?

I saw snippets of it. I must say that those "tight ends" are attractive, in a visceral sort of way! Leave it to the Americans to be so forthright in naming playing positions. My niece Veronica also seemed to enjoy the show, as she went down to the pub to view it on the telly there. She must have stayed over with friends, as she hasn't come home yet. I do so hope that she didn't run into that awful Hector Ballsworthy chap, a cad of the first water.

SOme of the tackles and blocks I saw would fall under the butcher category. Anyway, it is a granfaloon event, a bubble of hot air wrapped in thick muscle and sweat and money.

Cleaver strategies? Meat or butcher? Or did they finally take my suggestion and use battle axes? Or...The Beaver wasn't playing tackle football again, was he?

Indeed.

I watched the SUper Bowl--I think this is the first year in which I have watched more than snippets of one. What an intriguing contest? Clashing Titans and collisions of cleaver strategies and brilliant manuvers under high pressure. And the sheer brute force of it!! Why it's better than watching lions eat Christians, I'm sure!

I didn't watch the Super Bowel. I didn't watch anything about people living in swamps or so far back in the hills the sun sets between them and the road. I didn't watch Fox News. I am, however, watching print on paper and the mountains off in the distance and the snow melting and lots of other stuff.

Ah, yes...Dachshunds! They're like a breath of fresh air to a stale room, aren't they? Lovely little creatures. What are they up to? I suspect they are hatching new schemes for acquiring FOOD, the main concern of a Dachshund's life. And stolen food always tastes better! Thus, a Dachshund is, by definition, a thief...and proud of it.

Anybody watched "W" lately? Or "Game Change"? I found them both very interesting.

My friend Mary's dachsie had to have three vertebrae fused in his neck. After SIX WEEKS of crate rest, even being carried to the yard, he's now his old self. However, he expects to be waited upon and carried out into the yard. That is, of course, no different than before the operation and the crate rest.

See, Stilly, if you would take out the back wall of your garage and install a door there instead you could put a grease rack in front of that back door and be able to do your own car repairs! In fact, installing the grease rack in the middle of a trench would allow you to work on the truck without using the rack for things you don't need a rack to repair. The dogs would love it, too!

No, no, don't thank me. I come up with solutions like this all the time.

"It's so hard to raise a daughter!"

Didn't understand it quite.
Curiosity never pays.

You are so deft at slippery talk, dear Sir, that politics is the only corridor in which you will ever feel at home; to turn the embarrassment of slow adaptation into a virtue by quick-tongued semantic tomfoolery is the ability sine qua non of the true politician. Failing that, you could try used car sales. "Those rust marks on the valve springs, Madam, are NOT a flaw--they bear testament to the fact that the car was never driven over 45 miles an hour!"

Mwahahaha. A Daniel, I say! A Daniel!

Before we reach another landmark number, one which will create a situation in which every second number is an odd number, I feel that this should be posted. It is so very sad, so very tragic, and so well summed up in the last line.

Lament on the Death of Willie
       by Julie A. Moore

Willie had a purple monkey climbing on a yellow stick,
And when he sucked the paint all off it made him deathly sick;
And in his latest hours he clasped that monkey in his hand,
And bade good-bye to earth and went into a better land.

Oh! no more he'll shoot his sister with his little wooden gun;
And no more he'll twist the pussy's tail and make her yowl, for fun.
The pussy's tail now stands out straight; the gun is laid aside;
The monkey doesn't jump around since little Willie died.

We changed from coal to gas forced air in 1968; in 1969 the old coal bin was converted into a darkroom.

So you see, Amos, my ash hauling and scattering experience is far more recent than yours.

I, too, was born into the coal-scuttle age, and hauled cold clinkers in grocery bags out onto a frozen driveway. We changed to oil-heat and electric kitchen in the 50's, which was probably for the best as far as my lumbago is concerned.

Many's the time in my youth I hauled ashes. We had a coal-fired furnace, first lumps and then a stoker, and I'd shake my ashes and haul them out. Yes, I even scattered them in the driveway during the winter to prevent slipping on the ice.

So I'm an experienced ash hauler and scatterer. Feel free to call for my services anytime -- special cut-rate prices for MOABites.

Jeremy Bentham also thought that corpses should be stuffed and used as light poles, hat racks, and other useful objects. Chong' would make a good hatrack if s/he were taller and didn't attract fleas.

Druther do that, Amos, than my first idea: have portions of my ashes mailed to various random people around the world with a note about how much I treasured their friendship and wanted them to have something to remember it by. Kinda like a Joe Hill, but to strangers.

Have you heard, Rap? Chongo wants to be stuffed and put on exhibit in a glass case after he dies, like that Utilitarian Philosophy guy, whatever the heck his name was....(?)

He figures it would serve as an inspiration to future generations.

Maybe they could even supply his stuffed body with power so he could beat cymbals and screech every hour on the hour like the "Jolly Chimp" toy does.

It would become a place of national pilgrimage...sort of like the Lincoln Memorial. Great idea, eh?
