Fluff, son, mere fluff. Cute as the Dickens, though!

My sister-in-law had one, or was it a Newfie? Yep, Newfie.

Give them hell and give them a hell of a lot of jug band music.
It'll make them feel just fine, mostly.

Yes, it's Dave van Ronk. Dave is definitely here today. He may be gone tomorrow. RIP, Dave.

Probably a strong evolutionary step to abandon Mel Lyman and add in Grisman.

FLAMES do it smarter, faster, and have no need for shovels.

this way is for forests thick and virgin, where tight is REALLY tight.

simply bore holes as shown.

light off a bunch of these rednecky tree-removal contraptions at one time.

go off quite a ways and wait a few days, take enough beer to keep u going, several cases, i think.

BOOM! CRASH! DYING FOREST SOUNDS ABOUND, REBOUND, ECHO, REVERBERATE, AND KEEP YOU FROM SLEEPING.

finally, dazed later, u go in, log off what's left, eventually.

now u have the rooom to swing an axe and use a saw, whereas before, u couldn't, due to crowding.

once the trees are history, it's time to plant HOPS and brew some beer.

are u with me, norwegian? could u handle this enterprise?

The Andalusian Mouse

It is a very quiet place, a courtyard. On a balcony, a man smokes.

In his hand, he has a blade. He strops the blade slowly.

Iím talking to him, but no sound comes out of my mouth,
nothing reaches his ears.

They are very LARGE EARS.

You know what they like to say...

But a half-a-mo passes,
The other half is on a bicycle.

The half-a-mo on the bicycle falls off in front of me.

Having fallen, he cannot get ĎUPí as he has no left side.

He needs help and ďIím the only one here,Ē as de Niro once said in a talking picture.

He appears to have died, but the eyes flash open.

I polka at him and he laughs.

I fall backwards in surprise.

I yell ďFalling!Ē

He silently mouths ďOff belay!Ē

I continue to fall, striking my head.

Iím suddenly out in the cold.

Iím shivering, quaking in terror.

The wind howls into the notch of the Lost Arrow.

Lurking in the Harding Hole, a marmot brews tea.

He offers me some. I take the cup and drink of it.

It is absinthe.

All is revealed.

Promptly at one oíclock a.m., Werner raps down, gives me a frown, and says what a bad mouse am I.
He offers me a hand. I only need the thumb, thanks.

IAMBIC ROCK

I am a rockiní poet

And all the blue states know it.

I am an island.

I donít feel your pain.

Iíll say it again.

I donít feel your pain.

I am Bic government.

I burn hot and cold.

I am what Iamb and the others be damned.

I have what I want.

I took it from others.

Then from their mothers

And uncles, aunts and dads.

Itís my rhyme scheme,

My meme scheme,

To take from them

Before they take from me, me, me...

I am defending the homeland

Our domestic domeland

From gormless gropers

Homo dopers

And backsliding ropers

Like some god

But itís a myth.

There's No Theory Like Microwave Theory

It started with Maxwell or maybe Coulomb
Experiments that opened up the way,
And then there was Oerstad, of course, Heinrich Hertz,
Marconi, and Michael Faraday.
So as we gather in Long Beach today.
We honor those who pioneering the way,
There's no theory like Microwave Theory,
A great theory to know.

Just sayin', the Taco needs flushing once in a while, but it's up to us to keep our heads and our noses out of the shht.

Not wanting a Great Society, just one that is a solid 5.7, maybe.

5.7X, but just about mediocre, see?

It's good enough for a buncha old dirtbags, flirtbags, hang-hags, and lurking mental cases.

Enjoy the culture. It's free of chlamidia, at least...

El Portal is spared yet one more time.
Bullet-dodging is the community pastime up there, lately.

CHICKENSKINNER!
I want to take the opportunity, while thinking of El Patrol, to thank Ken Yager from my heart for the time he has taken from his life to baby along the Yosemite Facelift. He will be leaving it to others in order to be more of a member of his family's life, which is only how it should be.

You can take a look at his FB page to see what Chickenskinner's plans might involve.

Best of luck to you with your last Facelift operation, and I hope we can get the same quality leadership in the future, Ken.
I LIKE myself this way.  I'm satisfied.  No more facelifts.

An Off-the-Wall Essay on Existence and Folly of Belief in Deities
Prompted by donini's humanism.


Everyone gets a chance to play God.

If you feel any empathy for fellow beings on this plane, you might forbear from killing them. You can be Buddhist if you want. But this empathetic response is self-serving in that it is for the purpose of escaping from this cycle, moving on to another. It has no basis in love for that creature whom you have spared, be it bacteria or roach or trophy chimpanzee or brother-man.

The role of destroyer and the role of creator are assigned to different deities in the varied religious sects of Hinduism. We are killed by human beings in war, however, put out of existence, destroyed not by a mythic being. Likewise, we are created by the conjoining of two different units, both human and, again, not mythic. Any animal is created by the same method, namely some sort of sexual or asexual act. Any plant or other living creature can claim the same for their race.

The phrase ďto play GodĒ is better termed ďto BE GodĒ when the two polar acts, destruction and creation, are being discussed, it seems to me.

We have no need for God, thus. He is walking among us dressed as the killer virus. He may come in the night and invade your home with his droogs. ďHe certainly looked like a nice young man, that Malcolm.Ē

He might be yourself, forgetting to tie in and taking the big fall, or not paying attention to your belay.

But the fact remains, and this is the sticky point, YOU cannot create your own physical self, your being is not capable of doing something if you yourself are not around yet to do so.

I wonít elaborate more. These are just thoughts I had while thinking about shaving this morning.

Iím not cutting my beard yet.

My future beyond my death is still on the table.

Have a nice day.

Mouse from Merced

p.s.: donini, thanks for the mental excursion into myself.
