You mean 0800, WAV?

Hey, Cecil, Amos is actually a good guy, but he decided to lock horns with you awhile back on the basis of some suspicion he had about you being "a troll"...and you know how the human mind works?

It decides "This guy (or gal) is no good!" and then it sets about fighting a war whenever it spots "that guy" from that point on. The usual thing that happens is that the other person reacts back in the same fashion. You now have 2 people who get more and more pissed off every time they read anything the other one says, and they react to it, and they post a sarcastic, contemptuous retort, and explain what a jerk they think the other person is. The reaction sets off a counter-reaction. This is exactly how feuds get started and how they grow worse over time. It's also how wars work. At the beginning of the war both sides are thinking in terms of holding to tradition, being honorable, only attacking the other side's combatants, not bombing any civilian targets...and so on...but by the end of the war they are both bombing the hell out of every civilian target they can find, massacring innocent people wholesale, executing and starving their prisoners, shooting up fishing boats because there are no big ships left to torpedo, and dropping A-bombs on helpless cities full of noncombatants.

And they both feel justified in committing every horrendous act, because they have lost all respect for the "rotten bastards" on the other side!!!

That's how it works. A nasty process.

Now, I know Amos personally, and he's actually a very nice guy, but very nice guys can get caught up in these feuds too.

I bet you are also a nice guy, Cecil. See what I mean?

Gentlemen: If you need seconds, Little Hawk and I will be happy to help in that regard. I dislike rising before the sun, and at my age staying awake after sundown is a chore. Perhaps we could agree to high noon as determined by the vernal equinox or Mr Timex, whatever is easier. I'd prefer the Timex because at noon I like to nap, and sometimes noon on the watch is not noon in the vernal equinox. Also, I have NO idea what the vernal equinox really is. Venereal equinox: that I would understand. Crabs, no problem. But Vernal? Nope. So, to clarify, what say we all meet at the corner of two agreed upon streets. Come bringing your preferred weapons--I have a distaste for LOUD NOISES, so anything over ten kilotons is a no-no, and we'll let nature take it from there. Lemme know.

(LH, we are gonna capture this on film. The flash from the weapon might over expose the final frame, so bring really dark filters.)

Little Hawk is indeed terribly wise; he is also a wise guy.

But in one small detail, he hath erred. I try to be polite, and I try to also say what I mean, a neat balancing act.

I never decided that Cecil was no good.

I did feel that the quality of his cybercommunications looked decidedly similatr to certain other entities known and unknown who have been snufflopping around these parts over the last couple of years, even though his handle appears to be of quite recent date.

This may be a correct intuitive decision, or it may be wrong.

If wrong, he has my apologies.

Well, you had your suspicions, right? Suspicion itself colors the way one sees and interprets things.

For example, my dog is suspicious of the dog across the way. The dog across the way feels the same about him. Their mutual suspicion grows day by day. Resentment builds and festers. Raucous insults and idle threats are daily exchanged across the property line.

You can see where this is going, right? ;-)

The problem is, those dogs just started off on the wrong foot way back at the beginning.

As we spun slowly through a warmer winter-night
    Some birds sung sweetly - out of my sight;
And then, finally returned to the waiting sun,
    The turned bathtub-taps soon ceased to run.

You do me a disservice, Amos, to criticize my obviously whimsical and satirical limerick, which quite deliberately employs the use of blatantly fictional words in order to strike a humorous note.

But then, what else would I expect from a man who stuffs anchovies in his underwear on public holidays and has been seen sprinting down Hollywood Boulevard late at night dressed only in a beanie cap and a set of dayglo green pasties? ;-)

Poem 229 of 230: JOYS OF LIFE

Leightons, and other great art;
    Plumes of fireworks at night;
The vivid reds of sunrise -
    Repeated at day's last light.

The beats through us of a drum;
    Winter's sun felt through closed glass;
Handing in the last exam;
    Awakenings – alarmless!

The ball off thee whacks their net;
    When to palms leather has stuck;
Orange juice during half-time;
    A warm bath to wash the muck.

Viewing set-over cricket;
    A golf ball, for once, well struck;
Viewing velodrome cycling;
    From net-chord, levelling luck!

Sticks, chants, didgeridoo,
    Haunting harps, and all bagpipes;
Clog, flamenco, tamure,
    Hula, and other dance types.

Out, by a cast, being told;
    In - taking tea and T.V.;
Highland views that command rest;
    The buildings of Italy.

Thrifty plant-propagation;
    By a wave one's body hit;
Upstream of camp - with paddle;
    By a fire - strongly lit.

Forest spent-leaves under foot;
    Tasting a host-nation's fare;
Alcedo atthis at work;
    Just bills being brought to bear.

Allegros when feeling low;
    An andante to wind down;
Spoken French and chorused song;
    The quiet when out of town.

A stroll through a kept garden,
    Before Sunday's roast dinner;
A pub game, drink and meal;
    One's team a comeback winner.
