At 0515 MST tomorrow I shall bare myself to the surgeon's knife. One of the instructions says, "If you see redness or pus...." See it? If I could see it I'd be a rich contortionist!

Pellets, droppings, scat, dung.... It's all shit to me.

Speaking of which, did you know wombats produce cube-shaped pellets, which they then use to construct things? Yes, Virginia, wombats really do literally shit bricks.

Gnu, we usually referred to "pellets," whether deer or rabbit, when encountering them in the woods. Bear droppings are more substantial and the term fits, though one does regularly hear "does a bear shit in the woods?" and I differentiate the act (shit) from the product (droppings). And "scat" fits all of it also, but in particular coyotes, who in their trickster ways are often found to have left a pile of stringy-hair-filled scat on top of a rock in the path or in some other distinctive display.

MOM, I put up some of the xmas lights this evening. I finish the rest tomorrow.

Droppings are what we from the backwoods of the fly infested bog country of Kent County, New Brunswick, Canada look for. That's how we find food.

Some people call it deer shit, moose shit, bird shit... but us upper class good old boys call it 'droppings'. On accounta we are gentlemen.

My point precisely, Don. Used to be if a TV series was dropped, it meant it was canceled. Now it's dropped when it's brand new and when it's canceled. It must be confusing for the poor TV series.

"What? I'm being dropped? But I was dropped six months ago. What? You say there's 'dropped' and then there's 'dropped' and their meanings are exact opposites? Sheesh! I'm out of a job and you assholes are playing word games."

Mom! It's me again!

When did the word "drop" come to mean "appear for the first time"? As in "So-and-so's new video will drop next Wednesday!" Don't we already have a perfectly good word, "premier", that has been covering that base quite adequately for a long time? Is there some subtle difference between between "premier" and "drop" that I'm not getting?

Mom!

Everyone wants me to sign up for credit cards, programs, and God knows what else so I can get points. Why? They don't say what the points are good for!

It's sorta like those free tickets we used to pass out in high school. They looked like raffle tickets, but they didn't have any numbers or anything on them. They just said "FREE TICKET" on both sides. You didn't get anything for having one, but the were free.

In the documentary 'Won't you be my neighbor' The replay of the very first episode by Fred on PBS was SHOCKING

It was as though he was speaking face to face to the EVIL personified by Donald Trump 30 years ago.

I did not know the Congressional Hearing to shut down PBS many years ago turned soley on the testimoney of Fred who saved the day.

MOM, it seems the holiday season is here, and though there are many maudlin, poorly-acted saccharine movies out there, a few really good ones are still around. Tonight while I baked banana bread I watched The Bishop's Wife, suitable even for this atheist because Cary Grant and Monty Woolley are in it, and then Hans Christian Anderson, that I hadn't actually watched for years but has Danny Kaye and the fabulous Zizi Jeanmarie who danced The Little Mermaid, which is much closer to the story than Disney ever managed . . .

BTW: Thanks, Don. I love that clip of Fred Rogers. My "YouTube Channel" has only one video so far, that ABC hasn't challenged. I recorded (VCR) an episode of Nightline when Rogers was preparing to end his program, and I converted it to a digital file and uploaded it here. I particularly like the scene in the train station when people recognize him after just a few seconds.

Well, Mom, it starts tomorrow at 11 a.m. with a visit to my doctor...nothing special. Then at 1:45 p.m. I go to have a hole blasted into my right eye lens. Thursday ol' Doc Fritz1 will cut out a polyp discovered during a colonoscopy that the colonoscopist said to have a surgeon remove (not supposed to be Something Awful). Oh, what a wonderful week! What joy I shall experience, as ol' Doc Fritz wants me to overnight in the local hospital.

With this one, 45,993 posts. Not including Facebook, LinkedIn, and some other stuff I rarely do anymore. Heck, I'm pretty much only a Mudcat and FB guy nowadays.

We were delayed in Denver because a light came on in the cockpit of the plane and it had to be checked out (better a delay in Denver than a crash in Colorado, I always say). This made us late into SLC, so we changed out pickup time from 4:30 pm to 6. The 6 o'clock bus driver never bothered to check on us or the other passengers who had to change, so we finally got on the 8 p.m. bus. Which means we got home around 11:30 p.m., only 18 hours after I'd awakened! No wifi on the bus ("They took all that out"), but USB ports so the electronics didn't go south. I probably played 1,497 games of freecell as we motored through the rain and snow (yes, snow!). Now I have to catch up on my sleep prior to two more-or-less minor surgeries later this week. Can you say, "##$@!! *&^§¶»£¥!!!"?

blues'll do

Won't you lend your lungs to me, mine are collapsing
Plant my feet in bitter leaf as my time is apassin
Breath I give and breath I take pray the day not poison
Stand among those live in lonely indecision

Fingers walk the darkness down mine are on the midnight
Gather all the gold you found you fool its only moonlight
If you start to take her home your hands will turn to butter
Better leave this stream alone try and find another

Salvation sat and crossed herself and called the devil partner
Wisdom burned upon a shelf who will kill the raging cancer
See the river at its mouth take the water prisoner
build a sky with screams and cries bathed the fiery answer

Jesus Christ was an only child and love's his only concept
The stranger cried in foreign tongues and dirty up the doorstep
And I for one and you for two ain't got the time for outside
Keep the injured looks to you an we'll tell the world we tried.

I have posted to Mudcat 64,968 times, beginning back in November 1999, over 19 years ago. If i was forced to count,, averaging 1.5 minutes for each post (some take much long, most a bit less) I would have to own up to having spent over 1600 hours posting on Mudcat, and probably twice that reading and chuckling over posts from others. SOmething like 170 hours a years.

Actually, I had a really interesting bus ride three years ago. From Boston to New York City. It cost all of about $23 from the South Station and the bus had an electric plug at every seat so devices could be charged. It may also have had WiFi. The weather was gorgeous, leaves were beginning to turn, and we stopped in a small town half way there for people to use the restroom and buy Chinese takeout from a buffet. It had to detour around some rough traffic so was a longer ride than planned, but they dropped me off just off the Bowery down near Canal Street and I easily made my way from there to my friend's apartment.

Even when she's at the bottom of the pile, Mom is head and shoulders above capitalistic concerns like Black Friday or Cyber Monday. But that's not to say she's totally divorced from consumer culture.

My dog considers all other animals to be potential playmates. This is a trait that is rather intimidating to cats, squirrels, and the occasional deer fawn. "Playful" and "hungry" probably look pretty much the same to a cat when a seventy-pound dog is racing toward it at 30 MPH.

Of course Dachshunds prefer to poop on nicely mown lawns. Their bellies and associated parts are too low to the ground to go traipsing around in the woods without consequence. You'd shit on the lawn too if the one time you tried to do it in the woods you came home with poison ivy on your balls.

Our cat had kittens before we thought to get her spayed (long time ago - I was a teenager) - and I kept one of the kittens. When I was still living at Mom's home my cat came up to my room at night to sleep on my bed (she would start to scold if I was staying up too late). We also had a German shorthair pointer who got along fine with the cats. One night conditions were such that the dog was afraid (lightning, wind causing sparks on the electric pole outside the back of the house, etc.) that we deemed it prudent that she come upstairs and sleep in my room. The cat was So Pissed. As I was going to sleep the dog had curled on the foot of my bed and the cat sat on the floor in the dark glaring at the dog (the cat usually slept on my pillow). In the morning I found that she'd resolved the problem by curling up and sleeping against the dog.

Gluon has visited that really big planet with the little bug-eyed cats and reports that the dogs and cats there pay very little attention to one another. It's an unforeseen byproduct of an experiment in weaponized dissonant sound waves. Prior to the misguided experiment, dogs and cats there behaved pretty much the same as on Earth: they despised each other. But after being bombarded with the wayward sound waves, they began to ignore each other. Instead, both species began to channel their aggressions toward members of the native equivalents of our crocodiles and alligators. While this accidental adaptation has led to harmonious relations between dogs and cats, it has also resulted in a bunch of happy and well-fed crocodilians.
