I have to trust anything named da Vinci. It's in my blood or something. Thanks to Rapp for echoing my immortal prose here from there. It's not that I don't care about Mom, it's just I get addlepated and don't realize how long its been since I visited her sacred temple. Imagine! A whole page of Mom posts without my name on it. It's disgraceful, as The Orange One would say. Also, "No collusion!". Don't get me started.

Seriously, I have been on a clinical trial routine of chemotherapy combining cisplatin and gemcitabine (something like that) with a an immune system stimulant designed to make the body's own immune system recognize cancer cells and take them out. Anything to help move science forward, especially when so many are trying to move it backwards. Spare me from idiocy. So now, with the chemo behind me, they want to take the bladder out altogether to ensure no sneaky cancer cells pop back into play. Such tsuris. Surgery is on the 8th instant. Will advise.

self cloned bladders were the first organs developed by the NIH that people could use anew. I don't know how all the sphincters work.

The robot surgeon is named Leonardo d'Vinci and doesn't get hangovers.

Amos saith, in part, 22 hours before this post:

I have just returned from a loverly weekend in the wilding hills of West Virginia where a clan of song-loving folkies gather to spend the days and evenings swapping songs at a rustic inn called The Brazen Head. A long long drive. But well worth it for the chance to get my fix of people in song. :D

On the 8th of May I will be delving into the unknown as the amazing technology of modern medicine again converges on my mortal shell to tweak and remodel it. This time it will be a robotic surgeon with six arms which will be moving in through six very small incisions to remove my trusty bladder and some auxiliary bits including the seminal vesicles and prostate gland, so that when I awake I will have to re-learn the rare art of urination all anew, but this time en plastique. As far as I can recall I was an average student of micturition in my first training on the course back in the 1940's, and improved steadily to the point where I could write my name in the snow. I am not sure how well that will work with this new system, but the nurse who was trying to coach me on what to expect reassured me cheerfully that I would still be able to point the stream. Preserve the small pleasures, that's what I say.

I'm glad you didn't hack of the top of the storm picture to fit in an 8ft. ceiling room. Umbrellas do cheer it up.

Up we go, Mom.
Rapparee is accounted for,
and gnu has let us know he is lurking.

Now we need Amos to check in.

Ralphy's and Mikey's painting, especially that ceiling, are going to be given to the Society for the Preservation and Continuation of Absurd and Silly Uses of Paint (SPCASUP). That one part, of Adam getting the finger from Big Daddy, has been painted over. But you mentioned the storm one in particular -- you'll be pleased to know that trench coats, rubber boots, and umbrellas were painted onto is a few years ago so that children wouldn't worry that the subjects were going to catch cold.

Oh, I'm okay now. It was touch-and-go for a few hours, me hovering just outside Death's Door with one foot inside, the hearse waiting outside with the black plumed horses, but all the tests and EKGs came back normal so I decided to go home instead. It shows what an indomitable will can do!

NB: Don't fool around with the non-medical, oily, nitroglycerine. It is not something for make at home or even in your high school's chemistry lab. Trust me on this.

I have heard the local mockingbirds mimic car alarms. Seriously. They used to go off so frequently that the birds picked up the "call." Not so much lately because 1) car alarms work better and 2) more neighbors park their cars inside garages.

Pat found some of her ancestors in the Family History Library in SLC. At least she's pretty sure she did.

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.

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.
