That alliteration is worthy of the first line of the great American novel. Change Sunday to Saturday and it won't sound forced. Besides Saturdays have more potential than Sundays.

It would have been even more MOABworthy if the sun dogs in South Dakota had appeared at sundown on Sunday. Mom is almost as fond of alliteration as she is of cheap gin. Not quite, but almost.

You missed the sun dogs.
They were in South Dakota anyhow.

A Tech six will fit in a more affordable human heart holster.

Rap does have 4 ridges surrounding his place and only one is manmade. Whether they are moraines or not is anyone's guess. He has named each ridge; spooky ridge, uzi ridge, snoopy ridge and ruby ridge II.

It depends on how much you want to spend on a custom holster.
If you can afford a fresh Bengal Tiger uterus insert the tech nine and allow the uterus to shrink fit. If not a young cow will do.
For a quick draw holster use a spinning bolt attachment to the nylon strap so you can shoot from the hip without drawing.

Is there a glacial moraine forming in any of your yards this week?

Let's talk six-shooters.

I've got this Tek Six that was given to me years ago. I haven't customized it or anything, but now I'd like to use it for quick-draw competition.

Any suggestions for a holster, etc.?

It's obviously a tool for a Johnson, made by a company that makes tools for Johnsons. Please use it for the purpose for which it was made, not for doing odd things to wallboard.

Mom!

I have a big T-square used for cutting wallboard. It's made by the Johnson Tool Company. Isn't "Johnson Tool" redundant?

I'll answer rhetorical questions. I often just thaw by pressing 3 minutes on high and go from there. I did a cartoon where the only buttons on the microwave was re heat or entropy.

Mom!

Why do the buttons on my microwave oven say "Time Defrost" and "Weight Defrost"? "Defrost" means to remove frozen moisture. Like from a car's windshield or the freezer compartment of an old refrigerator. That's not what I want to do to my frozen food. I want to thaw it. Completely. All the way to the center.

If you stuck a Kelvin thermometer up the sun's ass it might be about 6,000 K

Aaaand! Yesterdday Roto-rooter paid a visit. Having a nasty cough probably brought on by the sanding and painting in my wife's office, Sunday I went downstairs to the furnace to simply change the filter. So I knelt down and took out the old filter and put in a new one. When I stood up the knees of the my pants were wet.

Knowing I did not wet my pants this time I felt the carpet. Yup, wet. Looking closely I saw that the floor drain, into which some of the furnace condensate goes, was overflowing.

I did some creative cussing and brought out the shop vac and sucked up all the water I could and continued doing this. On Monday I called Roto-rooter. They came out and ran their mechanical snake through the drain a couple times and it's draining quite nicely now.

I should mention that while this cost me $98 it was a helluva lot cheaper than chiseling out the old (cast iron) drain and replacing it. Yes, the threads on the cleanout plug were rusted away, but they put in a new compression plug.

BUT! While I was sitting at this here computer Sunday evening I heard a loud CRACK! from the kitchen here in the basement. Knowing that such sounds do not bode well I investigated. The old plastic(?) shelving on which the beer/dorm refrigerator was sitting had finally given way. I removed the fridge and sat it on the floor. Yesterday I found a 1940s style end table in a thrift store ($14.99) and the fridge has a new stand.

I saw the doctor today. It was a scheduled visit, a followup for the heart thing last Spring. Instead we discussed my cough and he prescribed some Tessalon PERLEs, rest, lots of liquids, ibuprofen, nasal saline, and if there are any bad things happening call me.

Let's see: the score for the week is a partially flooded basement, a collapsed refrigerator stand, and a rather nasty cold/cough. At least I'm...no, I'm not going to say it.

I remember one winter when I was a kid when it was so cold all the words froze if you spoke outside. Come Spring you couldn't hear yourself think! Worse, shots fired by hunters froze in mid-air and all Spring you were dodging bullets and shot. Still worse were the frozen fires -- the fire department just stacks the flames on the ice of the river (Mississippi River, there's only one river) and in the Spring when the flames melted the ice the resulting steam blanketed the landscape from Memphis to St. Paul and from Pittsburgh to Council Bluffs.

Unless you have special equipment, temperatures below 50 below zero F can not be tolerated for more than 10 minutes. Puffy coats and a scarf won't do it.

In the bright sunlight at 63 below I thought I would be fine, but I wasn't.

Nature abhors a vacuum, and predators move in when there is good food and no competitors. Rock Creek Park would be excellent ground, as people won't bother them as long as they keep their heads down and don't make a fuss.

Fish and Game had a case just last week of a coyote eventually killing a calf and hurting the mama cow. Caught on a trail camera, so there's no doubt about what happened. Most coyotes won't tackle something larger than they are -- they're smarter than that.

The Stars before him from the Field of Night,
Drives Night along with them from Heav'n, and strikes

Methought a Voice within the Tavern cried,

Why nods the drowsy Mom outside?"

I found the Vatican's "Lexicon Recentis Latinitatis" and wrote a story!

Slim, a armentárius at the Circle B práedium rei pecuáriae curandae, drifted into town. He was no nóbilis Hispanus or homo hebes, but just a plain working stiff (as much as he'd like to be a iúvenis voluptárius). He was on a mission: he needed some brevíssimae bracae, a new lagoena calefactória, provocátio, and (should he see a praecípua scáenica actrix in brevíssimae bracae femíneae a lot of sui moderátio).

But Slim was no homo affectatus, not him. He tied his mount and went into the thermopólium potórium et gustatórium for some placenta compressa; placéntula. He gave his order and saw out the window his old pal Pete, now moved to town and all tricked out for a round of thorax láneus manicatus. Slim sadly shook his head. He paid for his repast and walked out.

He walked past the aleatórium, where he'd lost so much money last payday, and decided he'd have some sícera náutica and Coke before he went back. A television somewhere was broadcasting a game of ludus follis ovati and he wondered if anyone here was watching.

Then he saw it and all his good intentions of returning today fell apart. There was spectáculum equestre! And the boss would know where he was.

(If you can understand all this you spent too damned much time in Latin class. If you can't you can look it up here.
Mind you, the list is from Italian to Latin!
