Our host is absent these last two days...
Mouse I hope you are hanging in there.
For some reason I was thinking of you as I wrote about the wolves.

It's funny...I was set up and taking shots, got very thirsty out in the sun, came back to the pad, downloaded what I'd shot to check for light, went through them, went back out to the fire escape, and the parade had started without me!

Ha ha...

I expect that if any marching bands came along, they were in the vanguard. I got some hot mariachi, though.

A Fair Number Of Questions Have Arisen Lately

The Committee* has held hearings this weekend to determine answers to these and other pressing matters.

How much is a pro climber's income?

Why aren't more people concerned about climate change?

Who plays bluegrass?

What is the prevailing wind direction in the town of Joshua Tree?

Are you ready for some football?

Is Cochise Stronghold worth my time? Or yours?

What about Chico?

What book are you reading?

Is YOSAR contracting rescues now?

What are some of the US national policy issues after health care?

Why don't more people use chest harnesses?

What song are you listening to right now?

Who are the best writers?

What is "Mind?"

Who does the wide with pride?

And that's not all.

But don't look here for the answers.

--MFM


* The Committee is an ad hoc one.
It's responsibilities are very limited and undefined.
Its members are anonymous.
They claim only to be messengers.

Yes, Dingus.

Just not quite so bright in Iran near the Iraqi border tonight.

Kinda cold out there in the front yard, burnin' your furniture up to stay warm.

Just one more thing for which to be thankful...heat.

It's what we aim to do here, warm yer cockles and yer appendages.*


Hackles and Cockles

Herb went to the doctor with a pain in the hackles. The doctor said, "The hackles, huh. Well take off your shirt and we'll just take a look-see."

Herb took off his shirt. "Okay," said the doctor. "Let's get those hackles up."

Herb turned around and said, "What do you mean get your hackles up? I can't just get my hackles up on command. I need provocation."

The doctor peered at Herb. "You can't get your hackles up on command?" "No," said Herb. "Can anybody? Can you? I didn't know it was something you could do." "Oh ho," said the doctor. "A passive hackler. No wonder your hackles hurt. They're probably atrophying."

He wrote him out a prescription, said, "Go out and get yourself an exercise DVD. "Hacklecise is good."

"Thanks," said Herb. "Can I put my shirt back on?"

"In a minute. After we take a quick look at the cockles of your heart."

The Truth About Spam

In this committee of the fools
And foundation of the damned
While awaiting the apocalypse
And the ejection of man
I sit and weigh mortality
With bad knees and love of spam

In this garden here on earth
We've laid waste to all the land
Hunting down the animals
In murderous roving bands
And slaughtered all our neighbors
With tribal feuding hands

Placing spam as a priority
I've stockpiled all I can
In massive toxic bunkers
In the mountains of Japan
Prepared for Armageddon
And the rising of the clan

In this committee of the fools
And foundation of the damned
You take away my nitrates
And I won't know who I am
There's no substitute for sanity
But sodium and spam

We're escaping to the highlands
In a jeepney and a van
Underground our installation
Is where it all began
In our committee of the fools
And foundation of the damned

Dispelling all Rumors

It's not so what they say about me and my spam
I once tried spam sushi
Egg sushi
Octopus sushi
Under a new Hawaiian moon

There's no call for spam shaming
When mushrooms and shallots
Garlic for the palate
Can be equally addictive
No offense
Spam ain't my thing

Say what you will about ancient Chinese armies
Buried under the cities
Or Egyptian royalty
Waiting for future wars
Or the gods to give a damn

I don't pick favorites
It's not so what they say about me and my spam
