Mouse be moving into Nita and my old hood way back in the 1900s. Things probably haven't changed too much in Rawhide. Probably takes a while to sort out an Internet connection.
Auto correct capitalizes internet because it deems it more important than u or i.
Weep em and read GOTD. ;)
Still have one minute "on the clock".

Hey Mhan hows pix & trix?



from AoxomoxoA, back in the day

https://youtu.be/W-s0lFpflQw


the song the persona & the vibe

St. Stephen
by the Grateful Dead


Saint Stephen with a rose

In and out of the garden he goes

Country garden in the wind and the rain

Wherever he goes the people all complain



Stephen prospered in his time

Well, he may and he may decline

Did it matter, does it now?

Stephen would answer if he only knew how



Wishing well with a golden bell

Bucket hangin' clear to Hell

Hell halfway twixt now and then



Stephen fill it up
and lower down and lower down again


Lady finger, dipped in moonlight

Writing, "What for?", across the morning sky



Sunlight splatters, dawn with answer(s)

Darkness shrugs and bids the day goodbye



Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow

What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned



Several seasons with their treasons

Wrap the babe in scarlet colors, call it your own



Did he doubt or did he try?

Answers aplenty in the bye and bye


Talk about your plenty and talk about your ills

One man gathers what another man spills


Saint Stephen will remain

All he lost he shall regain

Seashore washed by the suds and foam

Been here so long,
he's got to callin' it home

Fortune comes a crawlin',
calliope woman

Spinnin' that curious sense of your own

Can you answer?
Yes, I can

What would be the answer to the answer man?


High green chilly winds and windy

Vines and loops around the twining

Shafts of lavender, they're crawling to the sun

Wonder who will water all the children of the garden
When they sigh about the barren lack of rain
and
troop so hungry 'neath the sky,

ay
Underfoot the ground is patched
With climbing arms of ivy
wrapped around
The Manzanita, dark and shiny in the breeze.



William Tell has stretched the bow

Till it won't stretch no furthermore


And all that they require in change

That hasn't gone before

hooblie,
I totally enjoyed your post, the images, and the play on words, too.
Thank you!

zB, oh, okay on the hot springs. Thank you for the explanation. We have some great wild hot springs around here, but they are all a hike in to them. The closer ones are commercial, lovely, but generally overstocked in winter. I guess the answer for many people is the hot tub.

Sunny and 52F here, but snow coming back in a few days. I saw a crocus being brave, and one daffodil has pushed up a double leaf. We might get Spring by summer. :)

I'm posting again, tryin' to get us on to the next page, so that when I open the Flames, the top image is not of some posh bar and a younger 45. Not that I hate him or anything, but it is just a little bit of eye irritation, and with Mouse gone, a reminder that we are still on this page, anticipating his return. I guess. And I am sorry Locker is gone. He was a part of the mix, sort of the chop on the corner of a stone panel, where the hammer slipped, but also an authentic part of the whole of climber life, really. Crude but real. Now a great opportunity for Coz and others to do their bizarre funerary gestures. Anthropologically interesting. I hope Locker is watching at least. It is amusing.


hooblie, we used to shoot lines across the ice towers with a bow. The throwing machine is vastly superior. That machine the guy has modified is quite the upgrade for sure. Interesting.

yeah old tricks,
ya' keep trying Tut but the gym horde is here, we all have been saying it for years, now it is happening at places where we had held the line. The line against the reduction of risk but also the mental challenge.
Mental challenge, created by risk & adventure(largo has a good definition, something to do with the nature of delving into the unknown) are intertwined, bring climbing down to the lowest common denominator breeds contempt of all things climbing


TTTTTTTT

for the 1st time in 2 decades my abode is home to Wine women and song, &Strong drink, a 5th of Vodka!
Now, it may become apparent, that as a parent we decided to not indulge till them spurts could join in.
We are not there yet, but cooking with wine & "Russian sauce"led to 1st sips, i think ive raised tea-totellers, one can only hope

see and see what the reason was, to 'make a new page' ...

man oh man, things seem to change fast, when we only 'stop by'
for fast posting...

i hope all folks, are doing well...
and that whatever happened, that the folks will all be friends again, etc...



there is no place, like chris's taco... and, the
climber folks here, have in the long-run, really
helped each other...

going to go take a read, before i get back to chores...
good to see you helping mouses' page, here, feralfae... :)

In keeping my own counsel
Iíve left out some good advice
But how I could never tell...

Where is that confounded Mouseman, anyway?
These Flameskeepers are pretty... Flameskeepy.

Little Polar Bear Ghosts

I was meditating for pain
To go away
And the swirling mandalas
What they had to say
With recurring themes
And tears that burn
Told me unspoken words
Un whispered memories

I heard the bells clang
On little goats
Outside Tibetan pastures
And saw the prayer flags
All so clearly
In my mind
A shining face
Smiled down on me
Familiar and warm
Full of love and acceptance

I used to climb
Then something changed
The crowds and the ethics
Were lost rearranged
What Iíd left in the city
Was found there near the light
So I shied away
Looking for that home
I thought I would find

It was me who had changed
I didnít hear the song
Now Iíve grown older
Away from that throng
Down by the backwaters
Out beneath those hills
Still look up at the mountains
Through the kaleidoscope

Little polar bear ghosts
Tugging at my sleeve
Calling and groaning
Where some would move forward
Iíve stayed here to listen
Out here in the past
For the time machine visitor
But it was only me

My mouse is misbehaving
and my keyboardís on the fritz.
The computerís not computing,
but is dropping bytes and bits.

The hard driveís click-click-clicking
and the printerís spitting ink.
The CDís started stuttering.
The screen is on the blink.

The memory is failing.
Things are grinding to a halt.
And, even worse, I realize
itís probably my fault.

I thought it would be funny.
It was really just a joke.
I never thought the whole computer
might go up in smoke.

I guess I learned my lesson:
When it comes to your PCs,
itís best if you donít ever try
to feed the mouse some cheese.

Hey Thnx Marlow!
I Read That out loud

The Telaphone Id called the number that has always brought a "Yup, its me "Brian"
but this time, it was to no avail,
so to what is purportedly MfM's voice mail?


Thnx Again Marlow, Cause its that good! read it out loud with passion, it is a fun one!
