(Riters, Pocatello, Idaho) Last night at a Change of Command Ceremony, the Colonel-General Smite-Withers of the Idaho Legion stepped down saying, "I'm really thirsty...who's buyin'?" She turned the post over to Roxanne Smite-Withers, to whom she is related by some sort of genetic trick. "Poxy Roxy", as the new Commandant is known to one and all, will assume the rank of General-Feldmarschall und Oberste Führer auf der Legion von Idaho.

Poxy Roxy bought drinks for the house. Her assumption of command was celebrated in the usual ways, finally involving the police.

Well, there was a small riot -- one involving no more than a couple hundred people -- when the story came out today and it was found that the press had spelled "Smyte-Withers" with an "i" and not a "y". The General-Feldmarschall und Oberste Führer auf der Legion von Idaho pleaded for calm, but since she was holding the offending reporter at arms' length by his tie from a bridge over raging Portneuf River falls it fell on deaf ears.

When it was over and the pepper gas had dissipated somewhat, "Red" O'Moore was heard to say that he hadn't had such fun since they ambushed the Black-and-Tans between Liverpool and Dunleary. Even the cops enjoyed it.

It's so nice to see the boys out playing instead of holed up in that stupid smoley old cave of theirs counting bullets.

Nothing lasts forever, Eiseley, but the real gift of life is always in the present, not in past glories or imagined futures that may never come. Knowing this, you can thoroughly enjoy darning those socks that will one day end up in the trash...just like everything else we think we own (our bodies included).

Well...they've only got two cartridge right now and they can count them within a half hour or so. One's for a .90-50 Sharps buffalo rifle (NOT one of the guns that won The West) and the other is for a Dreyse Zündnadelgewehr. The new CG locked up the armory just before the riot and swallowed the key.

After Rapaire's adventures I'm just glad I was out of town this weekend. And I stopped subscribing to the paper after the press used some pretty lurid shades of yellow journalism some time ago. I guess all the news of the Legion I'll get is what I read here. Maybe that's for the best.

Now I'll go thread up my needles!

Mom:

It's been a very strained and stressful week between one thing and another, but tonight we went out to a beautiful Spanish restaurant and had a lovely celebratory dinner to observe our thirty-first anniversary.

Long ago, and far away, in a kingdom by the sea,

I married up to my best-beloved, and she married up to me!!

Yeeehaw!!

I love green threads!

There is an Amazon ad on this page, with a link for a GUESS Folk Shirt, Green New $79.00. I don't think Folk and $79.00 shirts often go together, do you?

I am on the road this noon, heading for the sleepy city of Oakland, California with stops in Paso Robles and various roadside rest areas.

Have a wonderful week and don't let Mom down!

Even the bears have dreams of things they've seen
Or hungered to see.
In browns like trees, and summer greens,
Places to be.
Not plagued by fear of predators or guns,
Full of fine foods, lady bears coy,
Delights, like summer morning runs
And other bear joys.
In the deepest of bear dreams is
The darkest green
Where being a bear is itself
Considered possible.

I had a couple of my own, and though I don't want them to feel like second class citizens, some of the repairs and repainting are waiting until they're not always underfoot. It'd be nice for them to enjoy the updates while they're here, but they probably wouldn't notice and they might continue to scuff the paint.

Tsk, tsk. The Latin for "railroad" is "ferrívia" and Asterix knows it. Just the other night, up at the Legion Hovel, he and Obelix and Psychoanalytix and Gibtermine and Metallurgix were sitting around, drinking and in general calling Romans nasty names in Gaulish, when Asterix asked, right out loud, "Quidquid id est timeo puellas et oscula dantes in ferrivia" and gave Obelix a big hug.

But the Ginkgo and the Dawn Redwood weren't so easy--both were presumed to be extinct, until they were found deep inside mainland China less than 100 years ago. They were only known by their fossils until then--and if Eiseley or Rapaire happen to travel to Seattle via Vantage, Washington, they can stop at Petrified Forest State Park (I see they've changed the park name since I was a kid - Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park).

The buzz saw snarled and rattled in the yard
And made dust and dropped stove-length sticks of wood,
Sweet-scented stuff when the breeze drew across it.
And from there those that lifted eyes could count
Five mountain ranges one behing the other
Under the sunset far into Vermont.

His sister stood beside him in her apron
To tell them "Supper." At the word, the saw,
As if it meant to prove saws know what supper meant,
Leaped out at the boy's hand, or seemed to leap -
He must have given the hand. However it was,
Neither refused the meeting. But the hand!
Half in appeal, but half as if to keep
The life from spilling. Then the boy saw all -

No more to build on there. And they, since they

Yay! Way to go, Stilly! Here's to the NEXT 35000!

I'd love to visit the Ginkgo Petrified Forest. There's a ginkgo I see every day as I walk to work. The leaves are silky soft, though not hairy at all like the underside of a sycamore---just soft. (It's on Clark Street, between Hayes and Grant, in front of an engineering company.)

Down the street is a park with tall elm trees that haven't been affected by Dutch Elm disease. They are huge, and the leaves are at least a hand-length long.

My sister, who lives in Salt Lake City, has in her front yard what some arborists say is the largest Catalpa tree in Utah. It has a trunk about five feet in diameter and a huge main branch that sweeps across the garden about four feet from the ground. Her children have sword fights with the stiff green pods.

What I want to see is a spreading chestnut tree. Are there any ancient chestnuts left out in the wild?

Chestnut Blight got 'em all in the US. Sometimes a stump will shoot, but nothing comes of it because the Blight is still resident in the stump. Same thing happened to my great-great-grandpa Elmer. Brought down by the Chestnut Blight even though the court said it was great-great-grandma Gertrude's shoot that got him when she caught him sneaking out of the schoolmarm's bedroom window at 2 a.m.
