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.

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)

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?

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.

Had we but world enough, and time,
This koiness, lady, were no crime.
We would sit down, and think which way
To swim, and pass our long love's day.
Thou by the Indian Ganges' side
Shoudst fishies find; I by the tide
Of Humber would complain. I would
Love you ten years before the food,
And you should, if you please, refuse
Till the conversion of the Cod. . . .

Koi are carp. Carp will eat anything they can get their jaws around. I haven't tried it, but I understand that they're pretty exciting to take on a fly rod.

Filleted, lightly breaded with seasoned corn meal and fried, carp make a decent fish dish. They were originally brought into the US as a food source.

Koi too.

But they're koi! Koi are vegetarians!. Well, supposedly...

We gave our daughter a small koi which she put in an indoor aquarium along with her tropical fish. She fed them all tropical fish food, which has lots of animal-derived stuff like freeze-dried brine shrimp in it. A couple of years later, the nice, passive, vegetarian koi had become a raging carnivore and had eaten all the other fish in the tank!

The idea of turning a half-acre pondful of five-pound koi into carnivores to get rid of some pesky neighbors and their yappy dogs does have a certain appeal. However, I do go swimming in that pond and I'm rather fond of all my body parts, especially the one the fish would be most likely to mistake for a leftover hot dog.

Hi, Mom! I just got back from walking to the pond to feed my fish, and I have a question you may be able to answer. I noticed that the bag of fish food says "Floating Fish Food". If someone has floating fish, why do they need food? Floating fish are dead!

My fish aren't dead. They're alive and they swim. Why don't they make "Swimming Fish Food"?

Ah, Bunn...the SOBs from the Legion not only wore underwear under their kilts, but it was of the old-fashioned long red kind. They pretty much had to do so because some of them fellers ain't had them longhandles off in twenny or thirty years -- you'd probably have to chisel 'em off too, for some of them SOBs don't bathe all that regular.

Since they've been back some of them have taken to hangin' around in their Scottish get-up, asking young women if they'd "like to stick your hand inso my sporran and feel my sgain dhu." Those are pronounced "SPORE-anny" and "skinned doo." This has resulted in everything from indignent face slaps to arrests to frightening one poor SOB out of his skin when the young lady took him up on his offer.

I know many women with Kilts, of various lengths*. And various lengths of kilt too. Under the SOBHD rules and guidelines, they're not doing it right unless you can see their underwear.


* height would be more normal, but my current least favouite use** for female highland dancers involves laying them on the floor, and trying to end up in exactly the right spot, with the best technique I can and exactly on time. Or not landing on them at least, and tall women make it harder.

**It does share certain elements with more fun activities.

And who do you think is responsible for that? Hmmmmmm? The voters? Not likely! It was the Special Operations Boys* (called "the SOBs") of the Special Operations Branch (called "that SOB") of the Idaho Legion, that's who. They'll be happy to take your gratitude in, ah, liquid form.






*There are women involved with that SOB as well as men. Men were chosen for this particular SpecOp (as it's called) because of the kilts involved. The women work under the aegis of the Black Operations/Special Operations Mission; they are currently involved in Awfully Extremely Secret Operations Procedures involving the French postal authorities; more I cannot say under the provisions of the Legion Official Secrets Extraordinary Rules Statute.

You've gone and left you prophesing on by accident again, Rap. Gordon Brown will become PM in a year or two, and then the ascendancy of all things Scottish will happen.

Except the bit about the Isle of Man, which has a form of goverment that has evolved from Viking Tradions, and so has a special Status that gives it leave to ignore Westminster on most things.

They used to hold all meetings of the Tynwald ( parliment type thing) on Midsummers day, outdoors. This had the effect of keeping Govement to a bare minimum, as most people would either be drunk fom the morning celebrations, or wanting to finish up so they could go join in the Eveneing celebrations.... Doesn't sound a bad idea.


In fact, we should have all our parliments outside. No more seperating the politicians from the people. No shelter from the elements. They'd soon get the idea.....

Sir! Please! Do not confuse the Idaho Legion with a respectable organization! The last time someone did the Legion demanded an apology and when it wasn't received Certain Actions Were Taken. The Actions Taken were of necessity done "black" or "under cover" but I am certain that you are familiar with the results: a Scottish parliament ruling not only Scotland but England, Cornwall, Wales, and the Isle of Man; the restoration of the Scottish monarchy and the Pledge of Fealty by Elizabeth II; the piobrach restored to its rightful place in symphony orchestra worldwide, and, of course, the adoption of haggis as THE breakfast dish of the Scottish (formerly British) Isles.

Have you never walked through Prestonpans Square in London and gazed up at Wallace's Column? Or does your heart not beat a bit faster when you think on Dunnichen or Harlaw as you sip your Talisker?

You may thank the work of the Idaho Legion and their determined stand in defense of irrespectiveness.
