You guys. You let MOM drop out of sight on Thanksgiving Day, and just because I had no Internet access, I wasn't here to catch her.

Amos has been known to frenetically chase chords. By the use of his olfactory powers he has even tracked down chords that were better remaining lost. Many time he has been know to catch a chord, grimace, and bury it amid a detritus of AMm7/E and 13/8 time signatures. Once, amid cheers, he even caught his own fingers, which required very extensive bandaging of both arms to stop the bleeding from the cut on his left thumb.

Yes, but the up side is...he will retrieve things for you. And it's fun watching him sit up, roll over, and play dead.

Maggie the dog is, I understand, quite the lady. Amos, however, runs around excitedly in the backyard. Why, at Getaway he's known for tearing around, watering trees and fire hydrants, chasing cars, and in general being quite excited.

Amos, they will enjoy meeting her. Poppy is a little stand-offish at first, but Cinnamon and Zeke are quite a happy welcoming committee when dogs come to visit. I'm assuming she would enjoy running around like a fool playing with the others in the back yard?

Well, it's probably just as well that the teleporter can't be used. Musical instruments made of Brazilian rosewood prior to 1970 are exempt from certain provisions of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). But if an exempt instrument is transported via teleporter, the process of disassembling it down to the molecular level and then reassembling it makes it, technically, a brand new instrument. This would result in loss of exemption and likely confiscation of said instrument in the event its owner should ever take it across an international border. Better to put the old Martin in the back seat and drive.

It's not broken, but Trump says I can't use technology born later than 1957.

Stilly, thanks so much for the fine travel guide! I will see you on my way through Texas without question. Will advise as to dates. Maggie the dog will be traveling with. Your pooches like friendly cheerful fixed-female amigas?

I have some catching-up to do (I've been gardening and cooking for several days). I know about Amos relocating - and hope he will come through Fort Worth on his way across the country. I've done the drive to Tuscon many times recently with my son, and I lived in Arizona years earlier - those freeways that go from San Diego through southern Arizona (Gila Bend was a good place to get gas on my way to Organ Pipe Cactus Natl Mon) goes directly into Tucson.

From Tucson, head east on 10 (be sure to stop and enjoy the rest stop at Texas Canyon!) and I hear there is good Italian food in Willcox. (That recommendation is a few years old). Careful in New Mexico, they write speeding tickets (ask me how I know . . . ). Gas is expensive in Lordsburg, cheaper in Deming. You can get an excellent lunch or dinner at La Posta La Mesilla, just south of Las Cruces (a lovely and very old Mexican community that was in place when New Mexico was still part of Mexico). La Posta is adjacent to a parking lot for local customers. Give yourself a little time to walk around and enjoy the shops and the square.

If you have to stop for the night, do it before or in El Paso. Don't sleep in a rest area between El Paso and Sierra Blanca, and be sure you don't have anything that sniffer dogs will spot when you go through the Border Patrol highway stop at Sierra Blanca. That stop has figured in arrests of many musicians of greater fame than Mudcat's Amos. :) Willy comes to mind . . .

Van Horn is an interesting little town, there are old tunnels between buildings (from the Depression era) but I've never found a tour of them. Chuy's is a local place with kind of odd Mexican food; if you stay on I-10 instead of the business route there is a Wendy's at the Pilot Travel Center Truck Stop that usually has pretty good gas prices.

You have to take the I-20 side of the split as you head east, and give yourself a little time to drive north of the highway in Toyah. There is a very old High School and other interesting houses in the town. Monahans Sand Hills is another good stop - there are lots of sand dunes around the area, but the State Park has the best examples of the white sand dunes.

Lots of interesting little towns as you move east; look for the Allsup gas stations, or Alon, they seem to have good prices and a variety of foods, etc. Thurber is an area with a tall brick smokestack, a center of coal country in Texas. There's a DQ in Ranger, and then the next stop east should be in my driveway in Fort Worth.

The easiest way to sell a house is to die and let your heirs do it for you. Not a great plan if your goal is to move from San Diego to North Carolina, but a pretty good one if moving to The All-Encompassing Mystery Beyond Our Understanding is an acceptable alternative.

I agree with gnu. I like the woods, the streams, the freedom from man-made noise (including, sometimes, music). I do take comfort from a .45 or .357 or 12 gauge with me, because we have both black bears and grizzlies, not to mention cougar even though I just mentioned them. None of those comforts would stop an annoyed bear or cougar (except maybe the 12) but I hope the noise of a shot into the ground would chase them off. Those critters usually won't bother you, though. Now, a pissed-off moose or a frightened skunk....

This past July a law-enforcement Ranger up in Glacier NP was attacked and chomped by a grizzly. Reconstruction of the event showed a very high probability that the Ranger was riding a mountain bike and slammed into the bear. That is not a recommended procedure.

Supermoon. I used to treasure the bright full moons in fall with no cloud cover. No wind. Dead silence. I used to stay up until about 3AM. I'd walk the woods from after supper until then. Carry my Baikal (illegal but, stupid to walk the woods without a weapon... 600+# black bears don't even buy a licence to hunt humans). I could see 300 yards and I saw a lot. I even saw a birch partridge budding at midnight and a hawk after him... hawk went hungry... don't mess with an old cock partridge. Fuck I miss the woods. It's the only place I ever felt truly at peace. Just me and the woods, alone for days with only the woods to walk and witness and the air to breathe. I weep when I realize I will never get back there again. I truly weep. But, I gots me stories eh, I does? Made a lot of 'em when I could. Made a lot. If I had carried a camera/camcorder for my 45 or so years hunting and fishing... one a them there one's what ya can buy now and wear on yer head? Wow. Hiking back fifteen miles or more along a brook or on ridges between bogs, I saw things I doubt many have seen. Hehehee... maybe that's where I got the arthritis... wore meself out? Nah... it's psoriatic arthritis. Comes from the French side of the family. Now, combine that with the Irish temperament... in pain and short tempered... not a good combination. = cranky old man. BTW, if you ever venture way back and find a fir tree with a knot tied in it at the base when it was a young tree, that may have been me saying, "Gary was here." And if you find two trees where one has "grown through" the middle of the other near the butts of those trees, usually ash or maple, that probably was me saying, "Hello. I was here."... and you should spend time exploring the nearby area. Hmmm... anybody else do this? I have made inukshuks too, but stones on brooks on Kent County can be hard to come by and don't last like tree knots and bark cuts. Say, anyone bark cut anymore or do you just use flagging?

Why would I want to tell the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles anything? I live in Florida.

That's not to say that Louisiana and Florida don't have a lot in common. To wit:

Both are hot, muggy, and mosquito-infested in the summer.
Both have lots of alligators and cottonmouths.
Both regularly get the shit beat out of them by hurricanes.
Both have economies largely based on taking as much money as possible from visitors who live in other states.
Both have lots of rednecks, though the ones in LA speak French and are called "Cajuns" while the ones in FL speak some unspecified form of gibberish and are called "Crackers".

They probably have a few positive things in common too, but I can't think of any.

What's great about cavorting and frolicking is that you can do either of them almost anywhere. If truth be known, gyring and gimbling are more fun, but you need a wabe to do them in. I planned on creating a wabe over the summer, but the instructions were written in Runic Old Norse and I was a bit hesitant about finding a Viking to translate them. Wabes are cool and all that, but the raping and pillaging that comes with having a Viking around just isn't worth it.

I suspect it's all a conspiracy on the part of the owners of Mimsyland and Mimsyworld to keep people from building their own wabes. If you want to do a bit of gyring and gimbling and maybe hang out with a borogove or two, you have to drive many miles, pay an exorbitant admission charge, and put up with a bunch of ill-behaved children pretending to be mome raths and outgrabing all over the place.

Do remember what I remembered when we found the freezers buried under our deck: let the cops remove any bodies.

Remember too what ol' Fred Schiller said: "Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens." It'll help you survive Down There (and other places).

It will also help if develop a taste for chitlins, corn bread, turnip greens, collards, fatback, potlikker, grits (pronounced "gre-its" with sort of a smile on your face), and Brunswick Stew. The guy with the biggest pickup wins, and extra points are given if you have more than two gun racks (with guns in them, of course) and still more points if one of them is a Striker. Give up your fancy-dancy-schmancy wine and start drinking brands like Old Milwaukee, Keystone, and Yingling (however they spell it -- the company supported Trump).

Oh, yeah. You'd better do a LOT of research on barbecue sauces and barbecuing. Best to bone up on CSA generals and heroes, just in case. And know your stuff about Tarleton and fer Gawd's Sakes don't tell ANYONE you moved there from Sandy Ego (unless apologetically and with a weak smile).

The offer was accepted and suddenly there is a stream of objects disappearing into cardboard boxes, wrapped in bubblewrap and brown paper, stacking up in the garage. The traces of thirty years are slowly being erased from the house as we stage it for viewing by people thinking of their own futures here, rather than our long, intricate and storied pasts. It is the face of change, sturdy givens eroding and melting like a wax statue in sunlight; from which, a whole new chapter will be write and formed and built.

We live in interesting times this is a strange moment to move from a deeply blue state to one so tinged with pink. But, well, le coeur as ses raisons que la raison ne connait pas, I think it goes. When BBW called me from NC to report on this one house she was so exhilarated and excited by it she could hardly speak in coherent sentences; she declared herself non compos mentis temporarily, so rich was the impact.

The Truth and many other things, mon vieux, is often found between extremes. I doubted very much that you were buying a double wide when a simple trailer would suffice. I did believe that you'd want all of the "modcons" such as indoor plumbing, running hot and cold potable water, even that new-fangled electrical stuff.

Yes, you do collect a lot of stuff when you live somewhere for years. I have so much -- too much, I think sometimes -- but I have a hard time parting with (for instance) my late little brother's guitar even though I don't play guitar. He bought it new back in 1962, a Fender Stratocaster slab board sunburst, I think he said it was, and I'd give it to someone but he liked it and could play pretty well. Or my MIL's silver tea/coffee service -- it's plate, but my wife likes it. Like you, I remember simpler days but I'm not sure now I'd return to them even if I could. Older, hopefully but not necessarily wiser, I guess.
