ALways sounded to me like the name of a mountaintop in Colorado, for some reason. Ort one of those distant lands where you take your love to live a new life, in far Aspartame.

Sweetener? Honey's perfect if you can still get it. :D

BBW went in for rotor cuff surgery this morning -- I await the call to return to the center and help round her up. Schedfuled to start in 32 minutes.

Yepper. Starts Friday. Meanwhile she can squeeze a ball, and turn her wrist, but must not move elbow away from body. She'll be doing passive motion exercises once the pain wears off a bit. So far the pain has not started as the nerve blocker is in evidence, and she's feeling groggy of brain but generally quite bright and keeps on trying to do stuff, which I empathize with while trying to make sure she doesn't do anything with any force in it. Sheeshe.

One step at a time. The ligament, on inspection, was 95% shot, thin as a paper bag, and has now been cleaned up and nicely lid into a formed grove in the bone and spliced in with stout twine or something. They were very nice and gave us pictures, which BBW says is kind of like a mechanic handing you your old starter motor just to prove it needed replacing.

Well, the cops are on their way now. We found a steak knife with a 6" serrated blade in the Men's room.

Knives, bombs, clubs...all in the last 6 months or so.... Sigh.

Ya know, sometimes you have to stop repeating your well-established habit patterns and ask yourself, "What is it about THIS Men's Room...". Think outside the hole, so to speak.

Little Willie, feeling swell,
Pushed his sister in the well.
Said Willie's mother, drawing water,
"It's mighty tough to raise a daughter."


My first-born is back home now. She had demands this afternoon that have not been met. I'm bushed, the house is a mess, the animals need attention and when he comes in from his dad's house my son needs attention. I need attention.

Down into the well
Which the plumber built her
Aunt Eliza fell.
We must buy a filter.


Nah, Amos, the club and shotgun-shell-grenade were found outside the building. The knife was found in the trash in the men's room; I'm glad that the lady who cleans wasn't cut.

We have picked up odds and ends in the creek in the back yard. Several kitchen knives, pots and pans, chairs, a bench. . . I guess if someone leaves this stuff in the back yard when the adjacent creek rises, it will get washed downstream.

We're settling down for the night. I made a loaf of bread this evening and every mom knows that the brain generates lots of natural endorphins in the presence of hot sliced bread with melted butter. Moonglow is mellow (hydrocodone also helps).

Willy, with a taste for gore,
Nailed his sister to the floor.
Mother said, with humor quaint,

Well, BBW slept under the enchantment of the original nerveblocker until about 0300 when she was rudely torn from sleep by pain. Then it was she discovered the real meaning of modern civilization in Vicodin.

She is very brave and the pain stays manageable as long as she doesn't experiment.

I guess I can go to work today...


She counts the minutes until her next pill is legal ( four hours) but won't let it pass her lips a minute early. Tough lass, her.

Good morning, Still!! Two households of pain and drugs. What a world, eh?

BBW is fortunate--Moonglow has come up with a case of hives. Has to stop her Rx meds until we figure out which is the culprit. Probably the penicillin, we're waiting on a call back from the doc this afternoon. She has already checked with me regarding what she can take in four hours since the narcotic is off the list for a while.

Yup--hard on households. I wouldn't trade places with either of them right now. I'm working at home to keep an eye on the kiddo.

I'm arranging a little surprise for both of you.

The medics from the Idaho Legion have volunteered to come and help you both out! In fact, the entire 31415th Medical Battalion (Proctologic) is even now saddling up to ride to your aid. Companies I, J, and P are heading for Texas and Companies R, W, and U are entraining for San Diego. These are or were highly trained and skilled medical personnel whose expertise in proctology represents a total of literally weeks of experience. The Battalion Commander, Colonel Dr. Isaac C. Butts, came to the Legion after years of successful practice in Sexsmith, Alberta and should receive a license to practice shortly.

They should be headin' out as soon as the liquor ration is loaded.

I am very grateful to the legion, but they should be advised that they will be stopped at the border if they are accompanied by any vehicle less fuel-efficient than a 2006 Prius, which rules out the large-methane-quotient animals such as horses, cows, buffalo, and elephants. However, they could take a leaf from King Arthur's men under the Boss' impeccable guidance, and ride into town on bicycles. Once they made it over the Cuyamacas and the deserts just east of them, it would be all down hill from there. So they'd be right at home.

Sir, the Idaho Legion is a bunch of dyed-in-the-wool, deeply committed, pacifists except when they aren't. They believe that it is better to, in the immortal words of Monty Python, "Run away! Run away!" But when they must they will stand and fight like lions and lionesses, albeit either very young or very old ones. The Battle Flag of The Legion is replete with battle honors: Stillman's Run, 1st and 2nd Manassas, Tucker's Hole, Fetterman's Fight, Greasy Grass, and many, many more.

Gracious, a bullet-riddled ambulance! Why, the entire idea smacks of Chicago! Or a video game! The Legion maintains its equipment, especially if it might help them off.

We'll be in Pinedale and Cody and then we'll drive back through Yellowstone from the East entrance, which we've never done yet.

I understand that the grizzlies are out, but I'll do my best to avoid them! The paper said today that a guy from Montana who photographs the griz was mauled for the second time -- you'd have thought he'd learned not to mess with a griz and her cubs the first go-round, wouldn't you?

Interesting day ahead/ First bath with sling, and putting on a shirt, are like new adventures, cautious steps with occasional klaxons and rockets going off if the arm gets jostled wrong. We're off to see the physical therapist. The cutting was short and sweet; the healing from the cutting is long, slow, and painful as hell. A lesson for politicians.

Our recovery here is a little kinder and gentler--more time on the table, a little less pain in the recovery (perhaps). But we're still considering the possibility of hives from the meds. At least, when she complains that I don't understand I can assure her that I do--my poison ivy is itching up a storm and will do so for a couple of more weeks before it begins to subside.

Hey, MOM, lets get the window screens in place and clean the ceiling fan blades. It's time to keep the rooms cool with a gentle cross breeze.

Well, she got poison ivy when she was 7 and the doctors couldn't cure it with any of the usual or unusual medications. So they used one of the cutting-edge technologies of 1949/50: whole body x-rays, which cured the poison ivy. Ten years later Pat was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She was annoyed because she was two weeks late starting college.

I merely say what she blurted out to a botanist last week: "Poison ivy caused my cancer!"

I got Moonglow out of the house for a while so she'd get some exercise. The enticement--a new phone. We've had our latest Sprint phones for a couple of years so are both eligible for a $150 credit toward a new phone. I didn't upgrade mine today, but Moonglow is happily loading all sorts of stuff into her new Lazr phone. I may need to shop eBay for some phone tools software, but other than that, she's a happy camper. I dragged her around to a couple of other stores before we went home, and she is much perkier this evening. She finally even had a request for dinner--she hasn't been very hungry up 'til now.

That's okay. Mom likes a quiet weekend every now and then. I can take the time to tell her about the cleanup going in a neighbor's back yard (code enforcement nailed them--finally--for the colossal junky mess back there) and the sheriff's deputies who crossed my and my next door neighbor's yards a couple of days ago, guns drawn, to sneak up on the old fart who discharges his pistol in his garage to shoot the squirrels he traps in his yard. The neighbors report it any time they hear a gunshot.

But, Mom, it's been a wunnerful day. I got half the new caulking painted in the eaves around the north and east ends. Then BBW and I went out and found a really nice office chair at the Healthy Back Store; it arrives tomorrow. Tryly excellent. My old one was literally falling apart after twelve years of steady wear and tear. THEN we went to Guitar Central and bought two SHUR 57's and two boom stands for my home studio recording system, a belated Christmas present. Wow!! I yam stoked.

The children of the MOAB wander far, seeking to vindicate their Mother's faith that they would turn out as great successes. Their fates intermingle, and draw apart, and collide again in a labyrinth of strangely related fortunes, meandering through the bizarre reseau of Time. There are golden spots of joy and dark spots of fear, bright red bands of anger and irritation, and occasional blue streaks of momentary serenity. The Sons and Daughters of MOAB are the rainbow of time made human, of life in Western Civ evolving its own implacably wonderful destiny. They do not flail about, they do not flee, nor do they tremble or maunder, for these are the sons and daughters of MOAB, and they of all men are gfted with the Power of BS, and unto them shall all things come. If they wait long enough.

Hi, Mom-o-Mom!!

It did not remain here rain with us.

Sorry--I have been maundering around trying to get my wits around linguistics, and that dragged me into Suppes' remarkable cross-disciplinary genius which led me to the following charming account, excerpted here:

The Bell inequalities give necessary and sufficient conditions
for such correlated phenomena as the spin of particles, often represented
in entanglement experiments by the polarization of photons, to
have hidden variables as common causes of the correlations. The point
of the inequalities is to give a condition just in terms of the observable
correlations for there to be such hidden causes. It turns out, not
initially clear that this is the case, that the inequalities are equivalent
to requiring that the random variables or probabilistic events having
the pairwise correlations must have a joint probability distribution of
all four together. So Bell's requirement was just equivalent to a wellknown
probabilistic problem for a great variety of special cases: when
do random variables having certain marginal distributions have a joint
distribution?

The subject is messy and full of tantalizing partial results.
Some of the nice earlier results, with no connection with quantum
mechanics, were given by the distinguished French mathematician
Maurice Frechet, whom I met in the 1960s in Paris, but, as is usually
so for me and other academics who talk to a lot of different people, I
cannot remember anything about our conversations. (John Bell I did
meet once and had a very good talk about the foundations of physics
at the Stanford Faculty Club; Bell, like a lot of other scientists who are
well-known for conceptual innovations, had a strong natural interest in
philosophy.


I d0on't mind telling you, I am coming to the conclusion that I cannot be myself as a hobby with stuff like this coming at me from strange directions. It's a full-time job!!!

BBW continues to grow strong and is fiercely independent even when she could use some help with her sling-and-arm. She's under very narrow constraints of movement -- must not move left arm using own shoulder muscles under any corcumstances. She can move it passively, such as by laying it on a counter and moving back from it, or having someone move it through degrees of motion.

The pain attacks from her surgery are well under control and she is down to one Vicodin in the evening, and occasional Ibuprofen other times, to keep it manageable. She is an astonishing, strong, bright woman.

Aren't ya glad I married her, Mom?   I yam. You have no IDEA how much trouble I would have been, if I hadn't done that.
