The monotone microwave beep bird may just be imitating an appliance.
It sounds so inorganic. I don't think it is in love with the beep from my morning reheated coffee.


DC metro is being vastly improved after going 30 years with no maintenance. (a very American behavior} It is state of the art when compared to Boston or Chicago. If however the world's deepest longest escalator breaks down one gets to experience walking into a coal mine.

The bird outside my window is no longer trying to sell me tee-shirts. Instead, he's urging me to be patient. "Patience, patience, patience!" Or perhaps he's saying, "Patients, patients, patients!" It's hard to tell the difference without a bit of context.

Hey, Don, my globe-trotting librarian daughter will be in DC for a few days this summer. We'll have to exchange some PMs about what she might expect. She says she loves traveling to cities with good rapid transit because she doesn't like to have to drive in them. I like that also.

Mom! There's a bird outside my window trying to sell me tee-shirts. He keeps repeating, "Tee-shirts, tee-shirts, tee-shirts!" I'm not sure what kind of bird it is. I'm pretty sure it's not a hawk, even though he seems to be hawking tee-shirts. Maybe it's a blue jay. They sometimes imitate hawks.

Haw! Rap's hundred number post is no such thing! It's only a 99 number post!

Okay, it was a hundred number post, but that was before Acme deleted my errant and incomplete post. The one with unfinished sentences. The one where some mysterious sequence of keystrokes made Muddy think I had hit the "submit" button.

Chinese do not use gender specific pronouns for men and women.
They are so efficient they have only one time zone.
The French give the Moon a female gender. Germans don't.

English is a strange but funny mix.


Finishing sentences make a good psychological profile;

It's obvious to ME that you need to finish a sentence. Unfinished sentences hang out there, waiting like a wasp for a place to land, usually in your drink or in the salsa or on the nose someone you're talking with. Then you swat it and make a mess.

In the interest of safety, I shall graciously allow a choice of phrases to complete the sentence There are no :

A. jewels under this outhouse.
B. smart cells in the brain of President ____________. (Your choice)
C. reasons to go faster than 12 miles per hour.
D. bullets in this gun.
E. flies on Mom's children!

Pick one. There are no incorrect answers. You will be graded, and strip searched as you leave the testing room.

Oh, yeah, this is a hundred number post.

Consider this: We English-speaking humans use various gender-specific and gender-neutral terms to describe familial relationships. The two people who mated and produced us are our parents (gender-neutral) or our mother and father (gender-specific). We are their children (gender-neutral) or their sons and daughters (gender-specific). If our parents produced other offspring, they are our siblings (gender-neutral) or our brothers and sisters (gender-specific).

But if our parents have siblings, they are our aunts and uncles. There's no gender-neutral term to describe that relationship. And if our siblings have children, they are our nieces and nephews. Again, there's no gender-neutral term to describe the relationship.

But if our gender-specific aunts or uncles have children, they are only our gender-neutral cousins. We have to specify whether they're male or female.

Well, it's obvious to me that we need some new words.

Well, Mom, I'm working up the power point presentation for my thing on Sam Clemens on Saturday. Yes, that Sam Clemens. Your old custom...er, friend. You remember him: riverboat pilot and later you and he went West together to Nevada. He got into some sort of trouble there in Virginia City and fled to San Francisco and then went to the Sandwich Islands and then Back East. You told me once that you kinda lost track of him after that.

You may also recall that there was a period when Mudcat had radio silence for a week or more and we lost several thousand posts. I was amused when admin office coworkers, diligently comparing my work hours to the times that I posted on Mudcat (because Songwronger was trying to cause mischief) that when they came to the several weeks of no posts (they'd printed out my post history, just as Songwronger told them how) there was a question mark in red ink at the gap. I didn't explain to them about the great schism while they were poking around in my Mudcat history, suggest they should examine their own Facebook history while at work. Oh, they found that I hadn't, in fact, written any derogatory or abusive things about my employers (that was what took them to Mudcat to begin with). But I was still banned from using Mudcat during the day at work, while they still use Facebook. The Ferengi took over this department in 2012. I'm planning my escape.

We have not risen to Acme's State of Knowing and Seeing. She is our Guru, our Kahuna.

But I haven't been around, so I just wanted to bring Mom up to date. The door installation is done, and the new entranceway from the garage is operational -- we had a good contractor and he made light of the re-routing and step building and all. He finished today and the painters are here now (Pat: "So Art, when can you start?" Art: "This afternoon."). I found a cheap 410 shotgun for Sassy, went to the podiatrist yesterday, and just dropped off a food donation. And yesterday evening we went to Irish Language class.

My wife and I are working our way through the entire six seasons of the television series "Lost" at a rate of two or three episodes per evening. We are currently in season four, wherein our usual ways of relating to time are proving to be quaint conventions. Being mentally immersed in a fictional world of temporal weirdness, I see no problem with Acme reading 59,481 posts where only 57,164 exist. The other 2,317 posts do exist, we just can't detect them with our defective equipment.

There are a few spam posts that were deleted; they're still in the thread, just not on the screen so they're still in the count. I actually (accidentally) used the thread ID, not the post count, but even the post count probably is more than you can actually read if you start at the beginning. Someone read through and give it a count, you'll see what I mean.

Well, considering that my computer screen says Mom's current post count is 57,164, reading 59,481 posts would be quite an accomplishment. Of course, if you were to start reading now, the post count might well be 59,481 by the time you're finished.
