Silly people! A band saw is not used on individual instruments! It's used on entire bands, just like its name implies! You ain't heard nuthin' till you've heard a band saw ripping through the brass section of a big-name university's marching band!

Amos, I for one am pleased to see your attention turn to bandsaws and I don't care if you modify an entire orchestra with the new gadget.

Amos, repairing your instruments with a bandsaw should only be done by professionals. I know you're handy, but why not let an experienced luthier repair the inlaid D-45 that BB King gave you? You know what happened the last time, when you decided to use a belt sander on the bottom of the sound box.

Gets bloody teejus, sometimes, but the days are cooling slightly. I finally faced up to the job of replacing on my old bandsaw which I had been putting off forever. Grim work, but she runs right smooth now.

True, though many and various wild foods apparently "taste like chicken."

Wild mushrooms are great, but fried chicken doesn't have any poisonous look-alikes.

Be careful picking your fungi. All sorts of bad things can happen to the unknowing. I once picked a morel-like mushroom with what looked like tar on it while waiting for my mother to pick me up from work. It was stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus and P. Hadriani are commonest) and we drove home with the fungus being held outside the window. I put it in a tightly-lidded jar and brought it to my botany teacher the next day. He didn't open the jar, but did say, "Stinks like a dead horse, doesn't it?" I gave it to him.

These are edible, if you really want to eat them.

Its only a mist outside and a good time to troop through the woods and see what is growing. Morels are not likely without fires around here but chicken of the woods should be available in 100 lbs lots. Care is taken since angel of death shrooms show up here.

That would actually be a very good place for Shane and Don, because I think they could find many customers (for weed) there, not to mention women of "easy" virtue.

I'm having a hard time imagining a region in which Shane would be a hero.

The nearest thing I can come up with is a vast area where human potential is expressed in negative numbers. Sort of like a run-down trailer park the size of Rhode Island.

Way up on blind river it began to rain
where no one could see.
Down in the lowlands the roads of water
rose to an inland sea.
Shane didn't mind the rain until utterly drunk
he fell in a gutter
He floated half drowned for miles and
slammed into the dam with a shudder.
She was about to break when Shane called
the tavern in town
"if ya could dump some bottles in the gutter
she'll make a damn good
trip all the way down to the damn dam"
They put 2 & 2 together
and that's how Shane saved the town

An inspired piece of writing, Rap!

We need a similar song for Shane McBride to help raise him out of a deadly hangover after another lost weekend of feckless partying and debauchery. It happens pretty regularly. There isn't a lot to do in Blind River.

He went down one September in a pourin' drivin' rain
Mom she had been drinkin' and Amos felt no pain,
Too close to mighty Florence when he felt the awful blow
And poor old Amos Jessup settled low.

There were just his sibs about him when he finally was a-slosh,
We worked like hell to save him, and never mind the cost!
But the moan he gave as he fell down it caused us to proclaim
That the mighty Amos Jessup'd stand again!

CH.: Stand again! Stand again!
So his name it won't be sullied in the mem'ry of [wo]men
All those who cared a lot and saw him land on his end
Will help the mighty Amos Jessup rise again!

(More to come? and apologies to Stan Rogers)

We got a little bit wet, but no great shakes. A huge oak a block from here went down in a light wind--rotten to the core--and took out all the town's power for hours. Must've been a Republican tree. Even claimed to be a Red Oak. Wasn't wearing one of them red hats, though. But we are well and weather now balmy. Florence the Giraffe is firmly installed looking over the roadway just in front, unnerving the passersby by sticking out her little sheet-metal tongue at them, forever.

There was flooding in the lower areas of town but no huge harm. Further out the Interstate looked like the Missississippi River. That's what real gennulmen from down here in the South call it, anyway.

I would attribute the decline in use of "twice" and "thrice" to the fact that they sound too much like imaginary diseases.

"Oh, my God! I went to the doctor and he said I have thrice! What am I gonna do?"

"Well, I've never had thrice, but I had a bad dose of twice a few years back. Penicillin cleared it right up."

"But thrice is 150% worse than twice. And, anyway, I'm allergic to penicillin. I can not take it."

Why are so many people online writing the word "intact" as two words ("in tact") these days? Then too, nobody seems to know the word "twice" any longer. They say "two times", but they never say "twice". Will "once" soon be altered to "one time" in order to simplify things and avoid confusing millennials? (rolling my eyes) I don't see people writing "cannot" any more either. Instead they write it as two words ("can not"). Are we merely witnessing the death of compound words or is it the end of literacy? What do you think, Rap?
