Mom, I think Amos has been trying to write his name in the snow again, only there isn't any snow at Getaway.

We have a lot of them here also. They seem to sneak in. I swapped out on in my bedroom because sometimes I work on projects (tiling, sewing, etc.) where I want to listen to something, maybe glance up occasionally. That tv is small enough to get moved to wherever I'm doing that work. And sometimes at night I listen to a few minutes of Charlie Rose before I go to sleep. The rest of them, well, the living room one is the one I watch most often, if I watch (I'm a radio person primarily). The front room is where the tv from my Dad's house is, and my son prefers that one. There is a little battery radio/tv in my office for storms, and a little LDC tiny one in the kitchen for storms. And there are some little battery operated ones in three other rooms. Then there is the garage sale color tv in my son's room for his video games, and the little 13" one that was in my daughter's room but now it's in my office because I decided I wanted to watch an old movie (I ran the coaxial cable from the front room VCR) while I did some filing in here. That doesn't count the computers that can play DVD. . .

All of this video power, and I listen to the radio most of the time. I think I've identified a couple of garage sale items.

Well, it ain't happened yet. But I oiled up the Tommy gun and got two magazines all loaded up just in case.

Bout two TVs this week. This makes four in a house with two people who watch MAYBE four hours per week. One, an LCD, is in Pat's office and the other is going into the Sun Room in the basement.

There is no TV in our living room or in my office. Awful stuff, that TV.

Hey MOM, sorry I wasn't around but I was busy yesterday. I was at Home Depot (not the natural home of organic gardening) and found a couple of trees I've wanted for my yard, so I brought them home and planted them right away. What trees, you ask? They're Italian Stone Pine, one that is well suited to my soil and climate, better than about any other pine. At HD they're labeled "live christmas trees" and pruned into the silliest conical shape, but they'll recover after a year or so. Anyway, I got the extra dirt out of the pot and unwrapped the roots and planted them. And then I saw a pickup pull into the woods across the street from me, and a couple of minutes later, I heard a chain saw start up!

I picked up my camera and phone and headed across the road. I snuck around to the side of these guys, a man and his two teen-aged sons (apparently) and I took a couple of photos, then walked out into the open and asked what they thought they were doing. They were gathering dead down wood, but they were in a park where no one is supposed to do that. It's part of the natural understory that breaks down, and I told him so. The man got ugly--"I know what you are, you're a goddam Democrat!" You can guess what my answer was regarding his politics, and MOM, I did use the "F" word. But then, I stood behind his pickup about 20' back, and since his tailgate was down, I squatted and took a photo of his pickup, then I walked away. "Who gave you permission to take a photo of my truck?" he shouted. I told him to call the sheriff to complain. "No, never mind. I'll call the sheriff and complain," I told him. He tossed his stuff in his truck and drove out of the park just a minute or so behind my hasty exit. He was still shouting as he drove off. And I have a crystal clear photo of his license. I'll call the village Monday and ask what their policy is on collecting wood in the park. Maybe they don't care. But as long as I can fake them out, I will. :)

Don't wory, it happened here instead. I had 4 Aberdonians descend on me unexpectedly last night. They were guided here by the one expected one, but even so, that's your bad event...

Well, Mom, it's powerful quiet around here. Too quiet, if you get my drift. Somethin's gonna happen, I kin feel it in my bones. I think I'll go loosen the sword in its scabbard and load a couple magazines for the Tommy gun. Just in case, ya know. Don't worry, I won't load the chopper; just fill a couple mags.

It's just too quiet...too damned quiet.

Dang near everyone is out of town, I guess. Even the Legion Hovel is mostly empty, but that's because they're all at Toenail-Eatin' Jake's political rally up in Potosi Gulch.

Jake's running for Guvner (as he spells it) on the Party ticket. It's called that because nobody could make up their minds on what to call the group. Jake's platform revolves mostly around free sandwiches when you "buy a free beer" and shipping all of Idaho's unused chicken manure to California "where they're used to a lot of that kind of thing."

They must have had a pretty good rally last night, because this morning's news mentioned that the Idaho State Police SWAT Team attended in full battle gear.

The State's political pundits give Jake's chance to be Governor exactly the same odds as those of Lord North, Osama bin Laden, Robespierre, and Jenghis Khan.

Amos did THAT a couple years ago when he tried to wash out where Gluon had thrown up on his bed, and between Gluon's "ejecta" and the Pu-239 dust from Amos's little projects he managed to reach critical mass.

I bet MOM is going to spend the weekend finally cleaning out Amos' room. Get a broom under the bed to evict the dust kittens and sweep up all of the electronic bits, wires, chips, fragments of old projects, spare particles and unused neurons bouncing around in his closet. And that spot on the bed where Gluon sleeps--that bedspread HAS to go in the laundry with her atomic power detergent! I hope she remembers to hang it out to dry on the clothes line. We don't want a repeat of what happened the last time when she forgot and put that coverlet in the dryer.

CHESAPEAKE MORNING

        Wake up, it's a Chesapeake morning!
        Have you ever seen something so new?
        Wake up, it's a Chesapeake mornin',
        There's so much we've been meanin' to do,
        So wake up, it's a Chesapeake mornin',
        Let's tell all of the neighborhood too,
        Wake up to this Chesapeake mornin',
        And if we see the whole mornin' through,
        We'll wake up to more Chesapeake mornin's
        And see all of our Chesapeake daydreams come true.

From the Cumberland hills to Solomon's shore
There's a Chesapeake sunrise outside your front door;
And its promise will wake you like never before.
Can you hear the alarm 'cause it's time to

        Chorus

We could work through the cities and farms on our way
To where the beautiful swimmers and waterbirds play;
'Til there's nothin' at all between us and the Bay.
It's so good we decided today to

I would have my friends call upon you if I had any. Instead, I have given your name and address to three members of the Legion (Larry, Moe, and Steeple Sam The Big Tall Man) and they will demand satisfaction, if they ever get that far. If they do finally find you and cannot get satisfaction they would post you as an arrant coward and knave, bald-faced liar, a low-down bushwhacking rattlesnake, and someone who tosses his hat on a bed if they were literate and could remember to do so.

That's the one. When Bill found that he'd been cheated out of thousands in royalties he took to drinking and gradually slid downhill from Chateau-Neuf-du-Pape to Wild Irish Rose to Ripple to Boone's Farm. Finally he fell off the rods in the Pocatello railyards and stumbled to the Legion Hovel, mistaking it for a hobo camp, albeit a truly low-class hobo camp. After cadging a few bottles of Stompin' Red (a local wine of extremely low moral character) it was discovered that he couldn't pay for them, pity was taken by the Legion Vice Commander, and Bill was given the job of cleaning cuspidors and teaching Theoretical Quark Mechanics at the University (where his personal hygience, dress, and other habits are written off as 'just another professor').

He has a warm bed in the basement of the Hovel, all the beef 'n' beans he wants, a gallon of red a day, and two part-time jobs that are, he says, in many ways very similar.

Bill's doing okay, for him.

Methinks I see a host of threads
Spreading their sails with glee
Down the Mudcat they do glide
All bound for the troubled Sea
Me thinks I see on each small thread
A few with hearts so brave
Going out to spread their tiny thread
And vanish in a cave

[Chorus]
    And it's three and point five
    Years that Mom's been posting strong
    Even though the recent fix
    Has made her number wrong
    The freds, the Ralphs, the Legion
    And the poetry as well
    They've long defied that bitter Night
    And kept dear MOAB swell!

Me thinks I've heard dear MOAB say
"My kids, we'll onward sail!"
Tho' Khandu falls behind our wake
And wallows like a whale
Me thinks I've heard her yet again
Say "Tweed has long passed out"
Yet our dear Mom is battling here
And spinning many a tale

[Chorus]

November's night brought such a sight
Twas never seen before
There were booze and songs and broken chords
A washing on the shore
There were many a lass "in trouble"
There was many a head was broke,
There were many a fine and hearty lad
Who had gave a cop a poke.

Mom, I had about 40 kids stop by tonight and I still have candy left over. But it isn't anything I'm too crazy about, so a lot of it will go to work in a few days and let college students munch when they visit our office (library administration). You never waste food when students are nearby. . .

Why is it so many of these folks just tramp all over the yard, and not up the path that is put there for them to walk on? I have a lot of shrubs and things that I don't want them tripping on. I finally got smart and just told them "stay on the path. The grass has stickers (grass burrs)." You get very good compliance when people know they might be getting those sharp as hell little burrs that draw blood when you step on them barefoot on your bedroom floor after they drop off of your shoelace following that trek across the lawn.
