It's true -- despite all the "unpleasantness" and a perceived "lack of class," -- that Merced's a healthy community.

As is the mythical Tacoville.

Sheep helped make both into thriving centers of tourism and culture.

Old Ronnie's a Navy champ and has been doing this for a long time. The other night he explained how to tape your hands.

When a fighter's hand is taped, it is inspected by the officials and signed on the tape by the referee prior to the beginning of the fight, which is meant to ensure that the tape has not been tampered with.

You'd hate to have one of these hitting you, for instance, even under gauze and tape, right?

When the fight is concluded, the wraps stay on until the gloves come off and the officials check the wraps again before the fighters head to the showers.

Also, if there is an injury to the hand, the tape acts as a cast and the hand is x-rayed in its original position, allowing the docs to make their decisions.

"I say, I believe it's a split, Doctor."
"No, this man clearly lost, my good man."
"Paper, stone, scissors, then."
"You first."

Thank you, feralfae, for this get well card.

I may get to see the VA by July tenth to discuss planning the pre-op.

At least the VA glacier is moving, but who knows whether it's growing or slowing or in retreat?

I feel better just knowing someone cared enough to get up off her own pallet of pain and find this neato postcard to send.

God bless you and I pray that you get to feeling better, too.

These are the last words he wrote to me.

It is private mail, but deserving of a public apology.

We are nothing if not a bastion of civility.

I blame it on too many "bewks."

I'm so sorry for the misunderstanding, Moosetard.

I'm a "bewb" several times each day.

You are, I shall say instead, NOT BUXOM. :0)

Dear Mouse, in my world friends don't apologize. If you are my friend you don't mean ill. Misunderstandings do happen, though. Nothing to dwell on.

So, I was not offended by your words. Just was/am not sure what you meant.

I am glad I am NOT BUXOM, though. Whatever meaning you choose.

**bux·om adjective \ˈbək-səm**
of a woman : healthy and attractive with large breasts

Full Definition of BUXOM

1 obsolete
a : obedient, tractable
b : offering little resistance : flexible <wing silently the buxom air — John Milton>
2 archaic : full of gaiety
3 : vigorously or healthily plump; specifically : full-bosomed
— bux·om·ly adverb
— bux·om·ness noun

lol

Be well, buddy!

The conductor also made a point to bring music to foster children. “He really wants to inculcate a love of music, the whole emotion of what music can do for any person, young or old,” said Ann Andersen, vice president of the Merced Symphony Association.

http://www.mercedsunstar.com/2014/06/06/3685939/merced-music-director-leaves-symphony.html?sp=/99/215/#storylink=cpy

When I moved into my studio apt. here in Middle Earth the week prior to 9-11, all that I had to entertain myself were my books, my dreams, and my radio. I kept it tuned to Capital Public Radio and listened to classical exclusively, nothing else. I'd been doing so for a number of years since my wife passed. This piece was one which guaranteed my tears for several more years.

Now, it's a pleasant memory of several good crying jags. And I no longer am such a "genre snob." There is a world of music to which I'll never get to listen, simply because there is not time to do so.

But by becoming a member of TPR, Taco Public Radio, I am able to use my music-listening time so much more wisely than with no guidance except that of some jaded program director who is constrained by the collection of music available to him and by his own personal ideas of what's good for his audience, the mercenary bustard. All THEY want is my money.

Here, on TPR, it's all about the joy and the dancing and the sharing FOR FREE AND WITH NO QUALIFICATIONS the music of many lands and times. We have jazz, classical, lots and lots of rock in all its gaudy variety. We have Gypsy, with Musical Migrations. We have a number of excellent musicians, TT leading the pack, and Ron playing his guitar to get Sally to Lay Down, not to mention the rival Politard Choirs, the Blues and the Reds.

I want to thank the All-Taco All-Stars Music Appreciation Squad for providing us with such a weird and representative mix of melodies and noise.

I have had the opportunity to listen one time to the Merced Symphony, but ticket prices are higher than I can afford. The piece that stands out from that one concert is the Schumann Third Symphony, the Rhenish. I'm not a capable judge of live classical orchestral efforts. I did like what I heard and managed a smoke break with the maestro at the intermission. He is an exceedingly pleasant and jovial man and he was a loyal book buying customer of mine for several years after. (The best kind is the one that buys.) He'll definitely be missed around here.

Adieu, Henrik.
