IT IS WHAT IT IS.

Curious phrase, should there be cause for alarm if:

IT IS WHAT IT ISN'T.

It's like that naggin philosophical question, what does * 5 A C have to do with safety goggles?

Oooh, good stuff! It needs some framing--minimalistic all-thread bars for the frame might be just the touch.

Good late morning and to be brutally honest, Bro, I don't quite get it and I've stared at it long enough that it made me do something naughty, to my embarassment. I am feeling brutally honest late this morning.

Are fasteners as important to the development of Western Civilization as the pen? The sword?

Did they play a role in the evolution of rock climbing? Rock 'n' Roll? (I think I busted a button on my trousers. You wouldn't want my trousers to fall down now would ya?).

How did you keep your tent closed, provided you were lucky enought to have one?



Talk about hair of the dog - another interesting phrase.


The creation of Velcro was actually inspired by burrs when Swiss engineer, George de Mestral, found them on his dog’s fur. When he put it under a microscope, he noticed these hooks that could easily become attached to almost anything, including clothing, hair and even other burrs

The link came up when I was looking to see whether Layton Kor and Warren Harding ever got to tie in with one another, as I think they could have thus defined "unstoppable" for all time.

At any rate, the beatles, the bosuns, and the bowling bones be beatin' de bongos over at Art Hop last Saturday night. Ben's Gallery with no name yet was hoppenin'.

That morning I made it to the Farmers' Market in time to buy some dried fruit for day trips to the Park.

And then on Monday (last night) I did some bar-hoppin' with Vern and Dawn from Middle Earth. We logged one bar, across the street from the Cinema Cafe and we were treated to big re-opening plans for Reinero's Italian Restaurant and the Trophy Room Bar, owned by Phil Reinero.

And the Sunday in between I wandered by the old site of City Hall, which has been converted into a microbrewery and restaurant featuring BBQ, which now caters to large groups. This is the third eatery to enter the building since renovation & the construction of the brewing rooms. The operators have planted some beautiful rose bushes for this go-round.

Barbara (Monique Serf, 1930-1997)

Il pleut sur Nantes
Donne-moi la main
Le ciel de Nantes
Rend mon cœur chagrin

Un matin comme celui-là
Il y a juste un an déjà
La ville avait ce teint blafard
Lorsque je sortis de la gare
Nantes m'était encore inconnue
Je n'y étais jamais venue
Il avait fallu ce message
Pour que je fasse le voyage:

"Madame soyez au rendez-vous
Vingt-cinq rue de la Grange-au-Loup
Faites vite, il y a peu d'espoir
Il a demandé à vous voir."

A l'heure de sa dernière heure
Après bien des années d'errance
Il me revenait en plein cœur
Son cri déchirait le silence
Depuis qu'il s'en était allé
Longtemps je l'avais espéré
Ce vagabond, ce disparu
Voilà qu'il m'était revenu

Vingt-cinq rue de la Grange-au-Loup
Je m'en souviens du rendez-vous
Et j'ai gravé dans ma mémoire
Cette chambre au fond d'un couloir

Assis près d'une cheminée
J'ai vu quatre hommes se lever
La lumière était froide et blanche
Ils portaient l'habit du dimanche
Je n'ai pas posé de questions
A ces étranges compagnons
J'ai rien dit, mais à leurs regards
J'ai compris qu'il était trop tard

Pourtant j'étais au rendez-vous
Vingt-cinq rue de la Grange-au-Loup
Mais il ne m'a jamais revue
Il avait déjà disparu

Voilà, tu la connais l'histoire
Il était revenu un soir
Et ce fut son dernier voyage
Et ce fut son dernier rivage
Il voulait avant de mourir
Se réchauffer à mon sourire
Mais il mourut à la nuit même
Sans un adieu, sans un "je t'aime"

//That is, you know the story
He returned one evening
And it was his last trip
And it was his last shore
He wanted to die before
To warm to my smile
But he died in the same night
Without a goodbye, without a "I love you"//

Au chemin qui longe la mer
Couché dans le jardin des pierres
Je veux que tranquille il repose
Je l'ai couché dessous les roses
Mon père, mon père

Il pleut sur Nantes
Et je me souviens
Le ciel de Nantes
Rend mon cœur chagrin

Let's get back to Big Columbia boulder and Raffi's bench.
You know he dropped an "a" from his name and Peter Paan picked it up.

So the boy's resting his nogg on his hands lying stretched out on the marble-like granite
He's thinking of the Fires of his youth (a "relative youth" even when purchased; God had just learned to "tie His shoes, always tie His shoes") which are in the bag for sale with the iron

He thinks how he hates them they've never been nice,
What the f*#k would good old Helen have to say if I laid that on her?

Back in the darkroom of my mind I am framing the view with my head on the SAR site side of the slab of granite, it's granite, I get it. I just took it for granite it was marble earlier.

so the boulder I'm weejing on the left side, the twisty cedar grows next to it behind the bench is bringing in the right side
snap the shutter and you see mainly tree

its branches spiral. its trunk twists. its barry bates in the fiber!
bump for the tree which has mastered the lightning and the bench which lies below
and Columbia's the gem of my notion
