Dearest Mother,

In a few hours they will come for me. I will rendered unconscious and then I will be filled full of holes -- I suppose they think it's more humane that way. I don't blame those who do this thing; they are only doing what they are ordered to do. Remember that my last thoughts will be of you and the sibs.

And Mom: Let no man (or woman) write my epitaph until MOAB has taken her rightful place among the nations of the Earth.

With Love,
Rapaire


PS: Give my slinky to Stilly because Amos is just a big poop-head.

MOM has been a little harder to reach this week. But I've been busy, so haven't tried as often as I might.

I'm dreaming html and styles and whatnot these days. Almost finished the design on some pages for work.

You are just lucky that my perfect limerick concerning your emergence from the anesthesiologist happened to be perfected at a time when Max wasn' t accepting MOAB posts, or your face would be so red.

I feel so much better knowing that MMario was weeping over the dishes. Pisses me off, though, that he set that night's dishes aside in a pan to mold while awaiting my return.

Don't tell any of the family secrets when emerging from the anesthesia, Rap. Otherwise, we will have to do what we can to make sure you never wake up!

Neither were most poets. Those who were, weren't poets. I mean, can you picture Keats waddling down the streets of Rome?

Sounds like a good weekend!

It's July 20 in North Texas and it is a heavily overcast rainy day. (It didn't manage "cool," but anything that isn't "fuckin' hot" is good!) I'm making note of this because a day such as this in July in North Texas is truly as rare as hens' teeth.

Janie has NO idea of the weeping, the moaning, the gnashing of teeth, the chewing of pillowcases, that her long absence induced in some of her siblings. Not missed!! I should say she was!! Why, the house nearly shook to death with people wandering around after hours bemoaning her absence!! We're all just too proud to say so, is all.

Hi MOM.

Doesn't look like I was much missed, but that's ok - I wasn't much missing anything or anybody either. Nice, low-key week on the Eastern Shore at Sister Annie's. Did a little kayaking in Assateague Sound while Annie taught Sum Yung Sun the rudiments of windsurfing.

Went to see a rather eclectic mix of movies ("Transformers" - awful, but as the Sun said, the whole point is robots and lots of explosions and fight scenes, and there were plenty of all that so he was happy, "Public Enemies", excellent cinematography and very good acting, and the latest Harry Potter - Well-done, but not enjoyable. As the story matured and became darker, I enjoyed reading them less, and so did not enjoy the last two books nearly as much as the earlier books, so it is not surprising that I also did not enjoy this latest movie as much.)

Also a day trip to Smith Island, (very nice, and would like to go back and stay a few days in a B&B with another grown-up,), a community crab and clambake at Crisfield and a very fun and relaxing Sunday cruising country roads, historic sites and State Parks in Annie's 1993 Saab convertible. Nice to drive a fine handling car for a change.

Actually read a novel cover-to-cover in three days, which I haven't had the time or concentration to do in years. Reynolds Price The Promise of Rest. I had read the first two books of the trilogy of the Mayfield family many years ago, when I still lived in West Virginia, and the scene of all three of the novels is the area in which I have lived in North Carolina for the past 20+ years, so I found it quite satisfying to finish up the series with a geographic and anthropological sense of place. (If you aren't familiar with Reynolds Price, I highly recommend his novels. Complex and richly psychologically realistic characters and lives.)

Also a delightful evening at a regular Thursday evening date Annie has with a couple of friends where she plays fiddle, Marion plays hammer dulcimer and Charlie plays guitar and banjo, and an evening with just Annie and me making music together.

The absolute best times were on Annie's back porch, with Annie and I sharing and swapping funny family stories with Sum Yung Sun, and deep belly laughs all around.

Also did a little plumbing. Both Annie and Sum Yung Sun sleep walk. One of them managed to break the bolts on the tank to the toilet in the main bathroom and also turned off the water to the tank, presumably after observing water pouring through the bolt holes at the bottom of the tank while still asleep.   

Under Annie's able direction, we reattached the tank the following evening, and decided we would make an effective plumbing duo, mainly because she is right-handed and I am left-handed, she knows what she is doing, and I can follow directions.

And now, back to real life.

Neither is as pleasant or delightful as meeting her in person. Not only is she pleasing to the eye, she is a triple black belt in twaekwondo, jui-jitsu, and kendo. An ex-Marine, she revamped the Marines' combat training and then, upon discharge, became a smoke jumper. That led to a career as a Park Ranger, where she not only preserved the Cascades single-handedly, she put the bend in the Big Bend. Although she won't, in her modesty, admit it, she is a dead shot with any small arm and can both throw and use a knife to deadly effect. She is also a highly regarded author and painter, missing the Pulitzer in 2007 by just the slightest amount and the Nobel in 2001 the by the same. Her painting and sculpture (eschewing the lost wax method she sculpts directly to the bronze) are on exhibit in many European galleries and museums.

It is definitely the thought that counts...cos the thought is father (and mother) to the deed. That's why I never let a friend down. This is always a good thing to remember when the bullets are flyin' and the clock is runnin' down to the last seconds of the game. Yessir, my friends are the ones that have come through thick and thin and never quit when the goin' got tough. Like Chachi the baboon. Like Nymbel the Capuchin. Like Renata Carson, my human campaign manager and best friend. She stuck beside me in the dark days of the last election. We was shut out and marginalized by the corporate mass media. Our supporters was shut out of the voting booths by a corrupt system. We was confronted with the ugliness of innuendo, rank specism, and false allegations of impropriety, but Renata never quit on me.

A friend like that is better than a suitcase fulla gold...or whiskey, for that matter.

You gotta keep yer priorities straight in this life, and that means ya don't forget yer friends.

Speakin' of which, have another beer, Ms Sage. The drinks are on me tonight.

Eaten in moderation (as I do all things, of course) there would be no harm in it. Only when taken in excess (which I take in moderation, of course) does a problem arise. If Amos were to reflect in moderation, which of course is impossible for him since he lacks the needed self-control, he would see that I am correct. It is for this reason that I have begun an investigation to prove my thesis that Amos is Shame McBride's long-lost brother or sister as the may be.

I think, on reflection, that you are mistaken. The immediate impact of my plan for Fly Blead would be to entertain and feed thousands of people. In fueling thousands of human brains, if only briefly, my product would enable Great Thoughts and Aesthetic Visions, untold possible combinations of HUman Affection, and possibly even Literary Inspiration.

Your theoretical condemnation is groundless, hypothetical, in the face of these substantive benefits.

In and of itself the selling pancakes or any other ware is, at worst, ethically neutral. If you sold an fusion weapon that also spread nerve gas and plague when it was exploded to a terrorist the item, and the sale, would be ethically neutral. It would be the intent of the user and the use to which it was put which would be "good" or "evil."

No, it was the marketing plans to create false impressions (or lies) in two countries to which I referred. Anyone who would do that is a follower of...well, evil.
