hey there say, feralfae...


as to this:
The spirit I love left that old embodiment which had the body label of Doug. I was there when spirit left. So I know. Doug's last words, smiling as he looked up at the ceiling, were, "Oh, Wow!" I sent him with my love out to play in the stars. I think he is already back, so I am at peace. :) I have birds to keep fed, and rabbits to keep in chopped carrots, and deer who expect fresh fruits and veggies a few times each week. And play, and the fun of coming here to TOPO and checking on things during these days of not much work to do.

i am cherishing this in my heart:

i can see you with all the critters, now...

i am going to try to go treat mine, now... the overbearing old crows, seem to show up and take it all away, :(

but i shall not give up! having been mustered by your cheery work!



oh my, mouse... i missed the neat pics loading, but the ones from the other day are showing faster, so, ?my computer memory, cookies? or something, MUST have made the first ones, easy-access? ...

will let this sit, while i take care of some chores (almost type choss, oh my) ;)) and see what shows up, here, then, as to neat pics!

The "freeway" through Merced runs parallel to the numbered streets, then the "highway" takes an abrupt southerly turn below Yosemite Parkway and runs pretty straight for many miles.

The orange line follows the direction of the streets and freeway; the yellow, the direction of the highway beginning at the parkway, more than less, I think. NO compass, no heading, just dead reckoning will place those peaks in Sequoia National Park/Monarch Wilderness.

Well, I never met a termite that I did not loath ... until now ...

Termites can eat up days and days of your time, even if your time is not cellulose, I've discovered. Ah for the good old days when the only care was whether the Partisan was going to be open on New Year's Eve.

Sixteen minutes is a long time in the modern world, but give the first 1:45 a look if you're so inclined.

Each of us lives in his own Adventureland.

Bruce Willis, the headman of the yipee ki-yays, shops here for roach clips--
Yippie Hippie Shop
http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Yippie-Hippie-Shop/149379668433903

just a half a meter off the sidewalk and around the back of that redwood tree.

I wakened for a bodliy function but remembered the gifts--I had fallen asleep like a sack of seaweed, just lay inert for three hours, a standard length of time to sleep if you are my age, and now can't return there. It's not insomnia. It's just something to do till I fall back into slumber.

Jaybro's eighth day present is a locking 'biner, a harness, a 200m rope, and a cheap card.

How can I thank you?

Oh--dreaming. Sleepier than I thought.

Okay, this is the package. It made it here, but was hanging on by the skin of its wrapping paper to being a "secret." I could see the box, but not its contents, a wooden puzzle, the object of which is to confuse the assembler. The set came in a wood box and these were accompanied by the framed tile with the Japanese character for tranquility painted on it and fired.

An old olive oil container--a decorative item, for sure, since the cork is permanently em-placed--is also included at the nominal price of no charge.

Day eight there.

Yipee for the gang who got it together!

The more that neebee fills me in, the better this gift box becomes.

I won't embarrass the lot of you, fear not.

My aim this year, not a resolve, is to be nice, not snide.

To be uplifting, not posting and saying how I hate the subject, how disgusting something is, how ignorant, stupid or lame someone acted, and to post decent photos of people as subjects and to limit the rest to good stuff, level and focused.

(But the Raiders still suck and always will.)

I'm getting to where I'm nearly as good as some others here in my photography, and quantity is not what is called for when the audience is genuinely above average in intelligence, taste, and judgement.

I've gotten over my awe of the "names" here, for they are basically no different than I, simply better at their games than I or my old pals, the Flames.

This is absolutely fine and the way it should be. It's like an adoption into a loving family. You need it, they are willing to share it.

So, brevity being the best thing in a writer's or poet's bag of tricks, let me say nothing more, except that I wish and pray and hope and say

NOT Dorian Gray.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Is Leinengen behind this ANT caper?

Will the remake of "Same Time Next Year", tentatively titled "Same Time This Year," be allowed to proceed unmolested?

Will Chris Diamontopoulos return as "Moe" in the Three Stooges sequel to "Termites of 1938," working title of "Roaches of 2015." Or will I get the job?

Happy New Year Mouse and Everyone!


Mouse, sir:
Scape mice or poltergeists???

Was that not nice? I blame the mice!

Everybody needs scape-mice. I got'em.

Doug called them poltergeists, but scape-mice makes me smile, so thank you for a new image of those pesky poltergeists in the works. :)

And those mice are obviously celebrating the New Year arriving by jumping all over your keyboard! LOL Neebee planned a great deal of entertainment for you. So fun.

You can blame the mice. Nice.

Thank you for the beautiful Bacarisse by Yepes, kind sir. Doug and I used to revel in some of the old Sephardic music from Spain. Lush stuff. Good reminder: I am off to search for some exquisite New Year's evening music. At my age, I doubt that I will last until midnight. I have had a glass of 2003 Kiona Cab, a bottle Doug had collected. It was perfect with the Alaska Moose tenderloin I had, even as I toasted all good men. There are some excellent men walking this Earth, and I am so thankful for their presence. A small toast to Doug and all good men. :)

Thank you all for your honor. :)

Happy New Year, and may it be a Blessed year of Peace and Goodness for each of us.
