Start up close and hand her the food saying "catch".

Then inch a way a bit at a time, as far as you can reach her.

Then from a few inches further, a gentle toss.

Etc.

Thanks LH. I love acknowledgement for my efforts at heroic verse.

I have established that, beyond a doubt, my dogs like peanut butter.

I have also verified that the catahoula is a complete idiot.

Sweet, but an idiot. I have been trying to teach her "catch" and even a peanut butter filled toy bounces off of her snout. The pit bull figures the game out in no time. Poppy can catch her food, but I haven't managed to get past that. I bought the toy to fill with food and will have to be very patient. I want this dog to learn to catch and fetch. But first she has to open her mouth.

Now is he summer of our deep content
Made bitter winter by this bookish son;
All of the finest steps thrown down,
Ruined each thing we have begun,
Now in the presence of Rapaire,
No summer light will bless our gaze;
There is only one sky there,
Where giant egos, only, blaze.
Go to, go to, thou shadows stark,
Thou summer breezes soft, belay.
Now is our playground chill, and dark;
Now to dark night succumbs pure Day.

24,000 is mine. So is 23832. All the really good numbers are now mine, because Mom gave them to me as a present for coming home even thought everything was late, including the airplane from Dublin (2 hrs. 45 mins.) and the even the bus up from SLC today. And I didn't cuss at all, and Mom's proud of me for that that she said I could have all the really good numbers from now on.

And on they came, like dust from hell,
Their drumming shoe like hail,
Their fiery breath and murd'rous gaze
And their flying, wind-swept tails.

The jockeys bent and cried and sang,
"Come on! Big Girl, come on!"
Around the flag at 23-8,
And straight to the end of dawn.

They hammered the turf with flashing feet,
And they filled the air with thunder.
The bettors gasped and watched Big Mom
With hope, and awe, and wonder.

She had come abeam of the very tip
Of the tail of bold Bright Glim,
And Big Mom smiled and stretched a tad,
And moved to the flank of him.

And the ladies fluttered their summer fans,
And recovered from summer swoons,
As a ripple of hope ran through the crowds
On that burning afternoon.

And still they roared and thundered on,
Bound onward toward the nine,
But the back three started to feel the heat,
Falling back in a long, thin line.

Brown Derby would not quail or flinch,
Moving out like a beast of steel,
ANd behind her Bright Glim raged ahead,
With an anger you could feel.

Then the crowd fell still, while on the stretch
While the trainers muttered and cussed,
On the far-away stretch they saw every horse
DIsappear in a cloud of dust.

The shyster on the field PA
Could only mutter and stew,
For they couldn't make out one horse from the next,
WHile the dust-clouds whirled and blew.

But the clump was driving fast as hell,
Faster than well-oiled dreams,
And the crowd grew wan, with a muffled gasp
And a few well-muted screams.

On down, on down, those ponies ran,
Into the rising sun,
And the hopes of every betting man
Hung balanced on their run.

And the gentlemen curled their mighty hands,
And the ladies whispered in dread,
As the distant cloud moved down the stretch,
With the nine in sight, ahead.

Stilly claims: 23800    200 to go until another significant number

I muyst disagree.

I believe 23832 is significant. It'll spin much better then the last one.

My fault, sorry--had to be out on the town this morning.

I see LH is still pondering the latest suggestive evaluation from Liebenscheiss. That German-born psychiatry is a powerful tool to bring about introspection. Not necessarily good for you though...

Maybe you should ignore Liebenscheiss, LH.

200 to go until another significant number. Numerologically speaking, that next number could hold all sorts of mystery. Let's not all rush there at once. . .

Good, it's about time. MOM thinks you left some wet towels on the floor in your room because it smelled really funky in there when she stuck her head in earlier. She closed the door again and said you can clean it up when you get home.

Well, look, I've always known very well not to jump off the roof. I'm naturally cautious. When I was a youngster I was amazed at the idiotic things other kids (specially boys) would do...just on a dare...or to see what would happen.

I could always reason out exactly what would happen without needing to do it. And accordingly I would not do things like jump off the roof, throw apples at the hornet nest, etc...

I was the most non-reckless kid I ever knew. I got no sense of excitement or challenge from risking my neck by taking dares and doing things that were likely to get me in deep shit.

This, of course, got me a reputation as "a brain" and "a nerd". Those can be tough crosses to bear in the school age years, but I survived it somehow.

Maybe I embody a slightly different form of Protestant guilt than the one you were alluding to? I know that as a child I always wanted very much to do "the right thing" and to obey "the rules", etc...is that a form of Protestant guilt? I mean, heck, the other boys were running around taking joy in breaking the rules and not doing what they were supposed to do. I thought they were idiots. They thought I was a nerd. So it goes.

Now I am the social radical with the radical ideas, the guy who questions everything, and most of them are the conventional people who sit in front of their TV every night and question little or nothing about the status quo around them.

Ironical, isn't it? ;-) Their revolution was all over by the time they were 25. Mine was just getting started.

On reflection, Protestant guilt is a very valuable concept.

If everyone just did whatever they wanted to or felt like, where would we be? Answer me that! If everybody jumped off the roof, would you think it was a good idea? Huh? It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye, you know. Better safe than sorry. If you don't look before you leap you'll never save nine.
