Dear God, now he's being his past life as Peter Roget, British 19th century physician... Gawd save us if he regresses to Harvey, or worse, Galen of Pergamum...

Amos, Amos, Amos. This is a library conference. We don't have sabers here.


























Bolos, Bowie knives, stilettos, dirks, Arkansas toothpicks, rondels, saxes, krisses, smatchets, Ka-bars, Fairbairn-Sykes, Fairbairn-Applegate...yes. But no sabers.

Well, Still, be sure to have those memorized when you walk into the restaurant so he doesn't get all excited and pull his saber out and waggle it at you...

IfF you have not gone to the theater and watched SLum Dog Millionaire may I recommend heartily that you so do? As flawed as it is it is a beautiful movie.

There is. Melvil Dewey and John Cotton Dana created during a "meeting" with Kate Sanborn in in 1881. To insure secrecy they never told anyone else or wrote it down or even used it themselves, but legend says that there are photos in the "Extremely Salacious and Obscene" section of the Vatican Library. So yes, it exists, but nobody can show it to you.

The most commonly used secret greeting is "Want a beer or something stronger?" The secret response is "You buyin'?"

The most common secret question is "So, did they leave any money in your budget?" The secret response is "SHEEEEEEEEEE-IT! Are you kiddin'?"

I hope so. But just in case, I'll ask at work to see if there is a secret librarian's handshake.

This confirms Rapaire is in a revivification of a past life: nobody mortars boats anymore since it has been proven scientifically that it makes them sticky and hard to steer.

I made it, Mom! The boat was mortared as we came in a couple of guys were hurt, but I made it. I hope you get this. We're pinned down on at a sea wall; lost a lot of good men getting up the beach. We're going to have to Do Something before the tide comes in. I lost my rifle in the surf (went head over heels) but I picked up a flamethrower so I guess it all comes out even.

Well, there's the whistle. We're going over the top. Tell Annabelle my last thoughts were of her and her sweet, tender kiss.

We went out to Lakeside, a sleepy town hovering in the vicinity of 1935, for a dose of quainitude which we found in full, a place that still has a Rexall. THere's a theater in the Old Town area that would make a bodfo coffeeshop/folkhouose, but I am not sure the area is ready for gentirefication.


Mom git up!! Lazy ole thang!!!!

Enjoy your dinner, Stilly. He's going to want to talk about me, I just know. So please take notes.

It's a pretty day in North Texas, though we had a "cold front" come through overnight. Still, it'll probably be warmer than Pocotello.

Dear Mom,

In a little while we'll get in the boats and head for shore. We know it's going to be hell on the beach, but the navy has done a pretty good job of softening it up and we hope that most of the enemy resistance has been blown all to heck. Of course, we know that won't have happened, but we also know that Our Cause is Just and that we WILL win for you and all of the folks who are doing so much in the airplane plants, the ammunition plants, the shipyards, and farms to give us the stuff we need for Victory.

But if you don't hear from me again, remember that my last thoughts were of you, of our little home on the farm, of your apple pie, and of the little brown church in the dell. And if you see her, please tell Mary Lou that my last thoughts were of her and of the sweet kiss on the cheek she gave me when I left. I haven't washed or shaved that spot since, and I don't care what the sergeant or the other guys say or the names they call me. Some things are sacred.

There's the bell, Mom. Well, my rifle is clean and oiled, my bayonet is sharpened, and I have the old family brass knuckles in my pocket. I also have that little bible in my shirt pocket because it always stops enemy bullets there. Got to load into the boat now.

Take care.

Your fave rave son,
R

The last time I was in Dallas was to see Notre Dame play Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl.

Come to think of it, that's the ONLY time I've been in Dallas (except once to change planes).

Oh, THAT'S what that was.

Best wine I ever drank, best food I ever ate.

Yes, I've met Amos and even been in his abode or dwelling (as the case may be). He is by no means a shriveled, dried up husk. In fact, he is very well rounded indeed, probably weighing well over 25 stone and all of it well-toned muscle. He is about 2.5 meters tall and he showed me how he could break a logging chain wrapped loosely around his chest simply by taking a deep breath. He carefully and gently lifted the corner of his house to tuck his car in the garage, explaining that doing so saves the energy his garage door opener would use. His guitar (a Martin Gibson Dreadnought) is strung with half-inch steel cable and instead of pegs he tunes each string with a winch. I enjoyed my repast and watched as he ate about 3 stone of raw beef, the blood still squirting with every bite he took. We shared some wine, as I mentioned earlier; I had a couple of glasses and Amos drank the tun from the tun.

No, he's not a dried up husk. I was just funnin' him.

Amos - MOM is very nervous about you diving with those reef mosquitos. She hears that the saltwater mosquitos are worse then barracudas. She says she just saw a FOX news special where a person skindiving in Belize scratched himself on a piece of coral and the reef mosquitos swarmed down on him and sucked every last bit of blood out of him.

I'm convinced the only reason Rapaire is in Idaho is because of the sheep.

Of course, it could be that Amos is so at home in San Diego because of the zoo.

Normal people live in places like Texas, Florida, Canada, North Carolina and New York.








Or maybe Saturn.

Tasty-Ego? What an odd, yet somehow fitting, name for a town in Southern California.

As for clean, sandy beaches -- with Global Warming I expect to have a beach outside of town any day now. My home will be close to the oceanfront and right on a golf course. Surfing, swimming, kayaking, golfing -- what more could you ask for?

Rapaire:

There's a fine line between the art of BS and the crime of vile and anti-social prevarication, calumny, and slander. In your most recent post, you have demonstrated a remarkable degree of deep insensitivity to that distinction. You imply, and overtly state, things that are not true.

San Diego is often called "America's Most Beautiful City".

We have miles of beautiful beaches, miles of beautiful mountains and miles of beautiful desert. None of which are experiencing problems with sewage, garbage, or rampant egoism as I write, unlike Pokeyfeller's most renowned citizen. Clean up thine own yard, scurrilous knave, ere casting remarks at thy neighbors.

Oh, by the way, did I mention I am going to Belize to dive the Blue Hole and the Barrier Reef? It's a fifty-meter wall dive, with sharks, groupers, rays and millions of brightly colored fish, fan coral, rock coral, sponges, and mosquitos.


And by the way, Spring has definitely come. It's shorts and golf-shirts and Birkenstocks at work. Life could be a helluva lot worse. For example, I understand there are parts of the country where the temperature goes below 60 degrees F.!! Fancy that, and be grateful for small blessings, I says to meself. Maybe we should rename this town TOasty-Ego??

I've always preffered the full Californinan Translation of the book of Amos to the "Teen Valley" transcription.

The same section in that version (published 1963) reads:

Oh, like, wow man! Mind blowing!
It's a trip, y'know?

I mean. like I love you, you love me, everybody loves everyone, cool?

But you gotta see, 'cause, Like, it's not everyone, that can, like understand how, y'know?

And they listen, but I dunno, they don't GET it, if you know what I mean; like the waves on the beach you see them,and you know how great it would be, but like, They see them and all they see is water.

Yea, though my mind is large as the world, and my heart filled with adventures;

Though my hands are strong and mine eyes not yet dimmed with time;

Though my blood warms me and my breath still fires my soul;

Yea, though I love more than many, and have been loved, and have owned much and been much owned in turn;

Yea, though I have seen the soul, and the mind, and the body, and the things on the face of the world, and am much traveled;

Yet do I doubt the forms of knowledge, and doubt the names given to the world by men. For verily, though you bring me ten thousand to learn, there is not one who can truly teach; for none knows what the fuck. Though the waves of the ocean may be high, yet they will not ride them in; though they work in full sunlight, yet they are pale. Though their mouths have answers and wisdom, and sound as brass, yet do they see as through a breaker curling, and all their song shall be as whatever, or as a soul in the desert calling out "Hey, maaan! Wot da fuque?" and hearing not any answer thereunto.

Book of Amos 99:123, Californian Translation.
