BTW: it was a Gorgeous day today and a splendid evening, it finally cooled a little. MOM is on the porch with her bottle of wine and her Cheetos. The dogs are curled up around her feet, catching crumbs and lapping up wine spills.

I asked if a mudelf could remove the post from the Guest from Stupidity, but they say it could end up anywhere and someone else might post it. Well, yes, DougR or Teribus or one of the other cretins at Mudcat might. You guys did well, to ignore it, so I will also.

Since our visitor is colossally stupid, I'm using our invisible writing to post this note. Idjit will probably never see it.

I think they should close the place down. Move 'em all to small towns in Nebraska, Kansas, and the Dakotas, I say! Move 'em out! Same thing with DC!

Sounds like Eiseley and the boys had a good vacation, the kind you remember and dream about, that you don't want to end. That's the way they should be. They'll find the charm of Idaho once they go back, and realize they like both places.

Glad to see Amos reappear. And is he ending up in New York State or New York City? If he wants to retain the mellow beauty of his vacation, passing through rural parts of the state might be a better idea. MOM just threw her popcorn at the screen when another body turned up in the repeat of CSI: NY. She doesn't think Amos should go there.

Yes Rap. In spots in the Fundy "flats", 13 feet in a tide change. Problem is, it comes in fast and if you are away from shore between the islands or along the cliffs, when it gets above two feet the current might sweep you off your feet. Been a number of peeps drowned.

When they say highest tides in the world it makes for good pics... and danger for those that don't understand.

BTW... a tide in Alma, NB is twice that but you can swim ashore.

I wondered that as well, gnu. Do that at the wrong time and you can find out exactly how far it is back to the high tide line and how fast the tide can come it. Another neat place to do that are the mudflats around Anchorage.

I wonder if Eiseley knows that the library has moved storytime to 3 a.m. to accommodate the longer school day?

Amos! "I saw Shane in the Tim Horton's over to Antigonish..."

Another week and you'd be asking, "We're over ta Tim's. You comin with?"

I agreee A... I've been all the way around NS and CB and crisscrossed it too. Beautiful.

Walked Fundy mudflats. Where to?

This is our last full day in Michigan and the boys are all in mourning. They want us to move here and live off the kindness of our friends and family and never have to go to school and just fish and swim all day, all year. I don't want to burst their bubble. The lakes and ponds freeze solid here in a few months, and there are the little necessities like a job and an income and permanent housing with more than screens for windows that are kind of nice to have. But I'm glad they've had such a wonderful time.

When you move to the vacation spot, though, I'm afraid there can be a rude reality check. I think I'll let them dream about how nice life is here---without having to experience the reality. Idaho is pretty nice, too.

Flying home tomorrow. And actually, Rapaire, I would rather be the director in Grinnell than here. The economy is a bit better in Iowa.---or Idaho.

Eiseley

Date: 27 Aug 10 - 10:46 AM

Well, Mom, I cannot begin to describe how stuffed full of sheer beauty my little head is from the last few days. I have sailed at midnight under a full moon, spent a few hours mowing the north 40 on a large Massey-Fergusen with a big brsh-hog deck behind, watched the whales spout and the eagles cruise along the coast from a lonely porch looking out toward PEI from near Livingston Cove, walked the mudflats of Fundy, sung a handful of songs in the wild wind on the bluffs, and fought the gusty breezes from the northeast cutting over the bay outside of Ballantyne's Cove with a single reefed main and jib. Not to mention the grueling transit locked inside tin tubes being fed cocoacola and bad air for eleven hours. But it was worth every aches and pain. I am now taking a quiet lunch in a restaurant outside the Halifax airport.

There is no place on earth I have ever seen as beautiful as Nova Scotia, and I've seen many. We drove the coast road around Cape Breton up to Baddeck and back, gaped at the islands in the Bras D'Or lakes, ogled the Bell home up there, and came back to Gabe's farm in one day.

We leave for New York, Cleveland, and San Diego shortly, so I'll talk to you later.

BTW, I have finally made the grade and eaten Tim Horton's donuts and coffee. I saw Shane in the Tim Horton's over to Antigonish, wearing a strange gown; he had dyed his hair purple and was trying to convince the ggirl behind the counter to give him donuts on credit for his friends "in the mother ship" but she wasn't having any of that. There was a very beefy RCMP officer sitting there watching him suspiciously as I left with my coffee. Dunno how it turned out...

Works for bears, wolves, skunks, rattlesnakes, cougars, people...all sorts of animals.

But I do think I'll put Amos' hand in a bowl of warm water at Getaway.

Well, his friend WAS with him and was armed with a .375 Winchester Magnum rifle.... His friend also shot a bear -- with the rifle. Naturally, in both cases the bear dropped just a millimeter from the toes of the shooter's boots....

Now, if it had been ME it would have been the HEELS of my boots...but then, I wouldn't have been hunting bears to begin with. "Here, Mr. Bear! You want my deer (salmon, rabbit, ground squirrel, skunk, berries...)? Help yourself! Tell the folks I said 'Bye'!"

Indded, SRS. I have never killed a bear and I have been in TOO close proximity to back bears in the 6 to 700 pound range that viewed me as "never seen one a them things before... I wonder" way back in the woods but I had a formidable weapon, knowledge and caution (when I used to hunt years ago). I can't imagine actually hunting an even larger and nastier beast with a pointy stick, even with the mechanical advantage of a throwing device.

Makes the hair stand up on me neck.

Amos, the bleeding-heart hippie SoCal liberal, has gone to Canada to join the protests against and terrorism of the Gonish. You'd never have thought that he was Antigonish, but he is. There was also something about "Hell or Halifax" as well.

From: GUEST,Prime Communicator First r'nuf' ك - PM

Hello.

I have been told by The Elder Greys to communicate with you. We have taken the Entity known on your Planet as Shane McBride Of Blind River. In a fortunate circumstance it slipped in the excrement of a domestic animal and triggered The Beacon we implanted earlier. I say that this is fortunate as it was at this very time that its presence was again needed due to a Crisis in (I have no notation to tell you where). It was needed as it is one of the very rare carbon-based Entities who contain both levodioxyribonucleic and dextrodioxyribonucleic acids.

The Elders sensed your concern for this Entity and asked that you be reassured that it will be returned in the same condition as when it was Taken when the Mission is complete.

Thank you.

I knew that Amos worshipped the ground Shane walked on, but I am moved...deeply moved...by the fact that he has run away from home and come to Canada to ascertain for himself if his hero has really passed on. I certainly hope he doesn't yield to despair and jump off Niagara Falls or something. That just wouldn't do.

Jack wrote a book called "The Big Slur"?

Eiseley, Amos ran away from home. When he heard of the possible passing of the possibly late Shame McBride he screamed, "NO!! NO!! He is my Hero, my Guiding Star, this Cannot Be!" and even ran right through the screen door.

We think he's headed North to Find Out The Truth about whether or not Shame has left us, cubed. So far it is all rumours (since they come from Canada, where they spell funny). For all we know for sure, he may be in a little love-nest with Officer Dana, playing with his toes and trying to figure out what a toothbrush is for.

I've caught up with a week's worth of reading. Sorry to hear about the auto accident, Rap. Are you both feeling better now? We had a couple of occasions to slam on the brakes on our road trip, and fortunately enough clearance to avoid such an impact ourselves. So many distractions to avoid when one is driving.

I listened to 3 of the 5 disks of an unabridged recording of Jack Kerouac's Big Sur. MOM would love it - what a blast from the past! I seem to remember she spoke of a summer spent on the Northern California coast. . .

I'm glad you folks are all right, Rapaire.
Welcome home, Stilly.
Where did Amos go?

And now a reused eulogy:

Poor Shane is dead
Poor Shane M. is dead
All gather round his coffin now and cry
He had a heart of lead
And he fell and bumped his head
Oh why did such a feller have to die?

Poor Shane is dead
Poor Shane M. is dead
He's lookin' oh so peaceful and serene
He's all laid out to rest
With his hands acrost his chest
His fingernails have never been so clean

Shane was the most misunderstood man in this territory
People used to think he was a mean ugly fella and called him a dirty skunk and an ornery pig stealer
But the folks that really knowed him
Knowed that beneath them two dirty shirts he always wore
There beat a heart as big as all outdoors

He loved the birds of the forest
And the beasts of the fields
He loved the mice and the vermin in the barn
And he treated the rats like equals (which was right)
He loved all the little children
He loved everything and everybody in the world
Only . . . only he never let on
And nobody ever knowed it

Poor Shane is dead
Poor Shane M. is dead
His friends are weepin' wail for miles around
The daisies in the dell
Will give out a different smell
Because poor Shane is underneath the ground

Poor Shane is dead
Poor Shane M. is dead
He's lookin' oh so purty and so nice
He looks like he's asleep
It's a shame that he won't keep
But it's summer and we're runnin' out a' ice

Eiseley
