Not so street. Looks domestic.

Thanks for the music today, Gypsy. As always, it's greatly appreciated, highly relaxing, and entertaining as well.

hey there say, mouse... wow, neat cup with all the laguages...
wayyyyyy back, before that was in style, as common, i used my dictionaries to make word-shirts, etc,and cards, with multi-languages, i love it...

i always loved the sound of many languages and of many musics, :)

i was learning 70 languages at once, long time back, and all those dictionary stuffs and tapes, etc...

would read french, spanish, portgues, italian,one day...
then,gernman, norwegian, dutch, danish, and something or other, another day...
hawaian, tahitian,pideaon, etc,
russian, bulgarian, slovenian, polish, etc, another day...

sure do NOT know much of anything of it anymore, :(
stopped when i was getting divorced and had to finaly get rid of all
my lovely books... i used the bibles, as reading, as the psalms
made great reference points, to KNOW what was reading , as i llarned more
nouns and verbs, etc... :)

sure miss it, but i have not the time to go back to it...
i even had mongolian and tibetian,i loved the tibet alpabet, :)

the yiddish was fun, the gaelic was differnt and a neat journey,
there was arabic arabic, urdu, persia, etc...

wow, so many, :(

turkish... greek, oh my...

well, it was fun... like cracking little codes, :)
good memory, though it neer amounted to anything:
was MORE important just being a mom, back then, :)
and i NEVER REGRETTED that...
quite a climb, though! and fun...


gypsy:

We're doing all this posting to please ourselves and certain people and then the nicest things happen.

Thank you for that reverie, neebee.

My heart's cockles warm when friends compliment and complement at the same time.

I'd like to say to anyone on the TACO that if you have something to share, please toss it into the bonfire here.

This isn't just a little campfire thingie--it's DE FLAMES, and flames will take anything and everything, eventually.

I've been asked about my Taco Sauce.

It uses basic ingredients, and I believe some vinegar is essential, but it's mostly the care with which the ingredients are prepared which makes it so tangy and piquant.

We have a master trail cook hereabouts who has her own wonderful recipes for the same, but I don't think I ever tasted no vinegar!

How's she do that?

She has the services of a sous-chef who works for free and knows some carpentry besides.

One of neebee's hey there say "no problem" problems.

I'm a firm believer in dreamcatchers. And their efficacy.

It's literally all in the mind.

The rest is up to you.

Because Bill Dolt Reuferferaux was stationed at Castle AFB he's a local climber from even before I got here. So now that I've had the experience of meeting his little unsung darling daughter and got to see her first exposure to Yosemite and a view of Arrowhead Arete in the early morning light, and now having read (well, I read part of it, I'm saving the rest for dawn, believe it or not), I felt this should be said, but I wrote it instead. Say it, sing it to the tune of Sam Stone. And remember, little pitcher, big ears.


THE LOCAL HERO

Daddy must have suffered.

Well, sweet songs hardly last.

It's the sadder ones which seem like they endure.


Wish he hadn't buffered

All the lost joy in his past:

His pain he stilled because he'd found no cure.

All The Best, PurpleBee.

You've been through the worst.

And so the morning breaks like two black rubber tires.


You'll get to be free

From your deep down thirst

And find that damned key to your inmost desires.


"Let's see. That's breaking traction, exhibition of speed, doing way over the limit all the way back to Crane Flat, erratic manipulation at high speed, and failure to signal...um, ten times, easy...and what's that white substance in the bag? Are you by chance a rock climber?"--excerpt from Tales of Piss Fir Willie, Ch. 12/An Odd Traffic Stop


InTO THE WILD DOLT YONDER

Here's a toast to the host
Of those who love the vastness of the sky!

Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder,
Sent it high into the blue;

Off we go into the wild sky yonder,
Keep the wings level and true;

If you'd live to be a grey-haired wonder
Keep the nose out of the blue!

(Out of the blue, Dolt!)

We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!


This is what is considered to be the "odd verse" in The U.S. Air Force, which song used to be titled as Army Air Corps, by Robert M. Crawford.

The third verse ("Here's a toast...") has a different melody, and a more reverent mood than the rest of the song to commemorate those who have fallen in the service of the Air Force and the United States.

This verse is sometimes performed independently of the other verses. The third verse is sung by itself as the Air Force Academy's alma mater after most Academy sporting events. Most notably, it is sung after games against rivals Army and Navy, when the teams combine to participate in the singing of both Academies' alma maters.

The third verse is also traditionally sung by Academy cadets and graduates to honor the passing of a fellow cadet or graduate.

Semper doltishness!

Semper farcissimus!

Semper Mort Hempel!

I defecate Avalanche--"Frontier Psychiatry" on the next page to Mister Bill dOLT.

It'll put juice on your chin. Hear the carrot talking?
