It has been a dull weary sort of day. For one thing, tt has rained all the livelong day except for intermittent bursts of bright blue skies and sunlight. The creeks are running high and the gutters are gurgling. FOr another I had little sleep in the night and have been compelled to compensate by being half-asleep for a third of the day (which adds up to one-sixth of a sleep.) All I have managed to do is study subatomic physics and build a database of literary sites and walk the dog a couple of times when the rain let up. I am exhausted.

I hope you are feeling all right, Rapparree. Your hernial interventions worry me some. I am going under the knife Wednesday and will be out of circulation for a couple of weeks. But not for sa hernia. For droopy eyelids! Can you believe that! Ten days from now I will be moaning "What have I DONE?". But three weeks from now I shall be grinning a hard-edged grin, I am sure.

I had a llama sort of like that once. He had acute fear of heights, which would be a debilitating condition if he lived in his native Peruvian Andes, but he lived in Florida where there are no heights, so he never even knew he had a problem. He also abhorred the sound of Andean panpipes. A few notes would send him into fits of uncontrollable spitting. In fact, he hated anything having to do with Peru. Wouldn't eat lima beans. Tried to kick the door out of his llama trailer while we were driving through Peru, Indiana. I think that, deep down in his soul, he wasn't really a llama at all. Maybe a goldfish. Or an alligator.

Did I ever mention ol' Rex, our dog? He could do tricks. You'd tell him "Lay down -- STAY" and he'd stay that way until you put his food out. He had ailurophobia, agoraphobia, ergophobia, claustrophobia, atychiphobia, ablutophobia, gnosiophobia, tropophobia, and he didn't like very many people -- none, in fact.

We had a dog like that once. Rex (that was the dog's name) never made noise and never had to go "out". Rex protected the house and all of our possessions and us, too. Once, I remember, some bullies had chased us home from school and ol' Rex gave us protection and comfort when he hid with us under the bed. Then there was the time at the old swimming hole when my little brother went swimming immediately after eating a big plate of baked beans; he got his foot caught under an underwater log and would have drowned except for Rex, who napping in the house five or six miles away so I rescued my brother and gave the credit to Rex, who needed it.

As he got older, Rex got bigger and bigger. You would too if you never went "out". One day the city required that all dogs get a rabies immunization. Mom loaded old Rex onto the neighbor's flatbed truck and took him to the vet. The vet stuck the needle in and Rex exploded. Poor old Rex! The small town never has recovered from that disaster. Half the downtown -- six buildings, one two stories tall -- was destroyed. The town's entire street cleaning department immediately resigned; he said he didn't take the job to clean things up.

For months the residue lay around, and the hot summer sun didn't help matters. Finally the State environmental people declared a disaster area Superfund Site and the entire fiasco was loading into plastic bags, buried, and left for the future to deal with.

Dog beds washed today, resulting in enough dog hair in the dryer lint trap to knit another dog. Maybe MOM could do that, and then she'd have a quiet dog around the house that doesn't eat much and never needs to go out.

I heard the first spring peepers of the year tonight at our little pond in the yard. Tomorrow, I'll take the dog for a walk* up to the big pond just before sundown. There should be lots of them up there.


* I will walk, the dog will run. My dog doesn't know what "walk" means.

True story time...

All trucks and trailers traveling on Interstate 10 in Florida are required to stop for agricultural inspection at an inspection station between Tallahassee and Jacksonville. A friend of mine pulled into said inspection station while hauling his horse trailer and happened to be in line behind a truck carrying animals belonging to a petting zoo. When the menagerie truck got to the inspection point, the driver handed the inspection agent his manifest and opened the rear door so the agent could verify that the stated animals were on board. The agent checked the manifest against the animals and came up short one llama. The agent asked about this and the driver explained that the llama was an irritable traveler and it would be best if the agent just took the driver's word for it that there was a llama behind the closed door. The agent said that wouldn't do, that the driver would have to let him see the llama. So, the driver opened the door and the llama promptly spat a huge gob of masticated llama feed into the agent's face. The driver then closed the door, said "I told you so," and handed the inspection agent a bandana.

When it became my friend's turn to be inspected, he told the still dripping agent he had "Four horses. No llamas."

From the cradle to the grave our lives are sweet
But, seeming long, are but the distance of a bleat.
How slight would seem the woes of life's hard hammer,
If our One God turned out to be a llama.
But we could pray Him still to ease this shit,
Or grant (at least) the measure of a spit.

If you were a llama, spitting distance would be further than shouting distance, because llamas can spit but they can't shout. I think llamas bleat, but who ever heard of bleating distance?

Hi, Mom! This is post #51869. I hereby proclaim the distance remaining to post #52000 (131 posts) to be "within shouting distance". At some further point, the distance remaining to post #52000 will be "within spitting distance". I'll let you know when we get there. You can rest assured that the determination of said "spitting distance" shall be made in an entirely random fashion, leaving no room for concern with the vagaries of logic, common sense, parliamentary procedure, or the indecipherable manner in which a game of ten-pins is scored. I may or may not be wearing a cap when that point is reached.

When we were still a couple I was the one who most often wore hats.

My den is a step down from the kitchen and the house builders put in a metal rail along the top of that long step, leaving a gap to walk through. There is a knob on each side of that metal rail gap, and I hang my yard ballcaps there. A couple of them are the clean ones to wear when going out in public (like over to Home Depot to buy more top soil or lumber) and then there are the grungy ones for dog walks and working in the garden. My hall closet houses some fine straw hats with broad brims from my days of working in desert regions, and I have a fine woven palm Panama hat for yard work. There are a couple of old straw cowboy hats from when the kids were little, and I have a whole bunch of knitted and crocheted headgear for very cold weather. And my hats that I can't get rid of but that I also don't wear are several vintage Stetsons worn during my many years as a park ranger. Every so often I pull one out just to prove I really was a ranger. Who else would buy a "Smoky the Bear" hat?

If I were a woman, my SO's cap collection would probably be the last thing I'd want to take with me if the relationship should fall apart. Well, not necessarily the last thing. That would be his collection of toenail clippings. But the cap collection wouldn't be far behind.

My collection of peaked caps was closing in on 500 when "the incident" took place while I was away working construction in Labrador paying the bills. It wasn't the final straw that broke the gnu's back but perhaps it should have been. Who knows? All I know is, I am still out nearly 500 hats and some of them were worth $$$. Hey! A Cat Diesel Power hat? You know what kinda pool I had to shoot in a seedy bar in Labrador to win that hat? But, then again, I don't have to put up with "her" anymore so it's cool.

She took my cat too. My only solace is that my cat never liked her. I actually cried over the cat. Her? Not so much.

It's late on Friday night. Nuff said. gnightgnu.

I have about dozen or so "ball caps" -- I've got to sort them out soon. Four felt hats, several "stocking caps" or toques, and two newsboy-style flat caps in wool. And two straws for working in the yard, wearing in summer, and fishing. And a Tilley-style hat I bought for the cruise last July. That's about it. No fedoras, no homburgs, no bowlers, no sombreros, no military patrol caps, no top hats, no stovepipes, no derbies, no beanies, no porkpies, no panamas, no skimmers, no berets, no tyroleans, no helmets, no helms.

I have a dozen or so baseball caps and around a half-dozen knitted toboggans/toques/sock caps/whatever you want to call them. Since the top of my head is a vast expanse of skin, I usually wear a cap so other people won't experience temporary blindness from the reflected glare. Keeps sunburn away too.

No, it's not. But it is related. 4 tires x 38 psi each = 152 psi, or 10.6 kgf/cm2. So if all four tires blew at the same time your vehicle would be lifted up. Not very high, but up (assuming the tires blew out when the blow-out spot on each was down). Overinflate your tires enough and you could put your vehicle into orbit.

Sad to hear that, Rap. Good lock with the surgery(s).

That light on the dashboard? Fuck it. Mine came on 4 days after the warranty expired and it's a "Tire pressure sensor fault"! It's still on. My tires are fine. Ford is fucked up. Here is the kicker! A tire pressure sensor fault is nasty because they have to take EACH tire off to check EACH sensor. Fact is, they are gonna take em all off (maybe?) and charge for doing it even if the first one is the bum one. Fuck em. I have had a tire pressure gauge in my glove box since I was 14 and IT works. So does my eyesight and I look at the tires at least every few days. I mean, just look at them when you are walking toward the weehicle. It ain't rocket science.

A light goes on on my dash. This means some tire is underinflated. Then I check the tires and fix the problem or, more likely, it's time to take the car in for service and I let them do it.

Mom, I got bad news yesterday at my annual checkup. I have a hernia on each side and have to have surgery...again...the third time in a year. I see the surgeon tomorrow for a pre-surgery visit and may know more after than, maybe. But you know, Mom, that anesthesia is coooooooool.

There's a simple reason for long-term Mac use. It works better. We use the computer for other things, rather than as an occupation in itself.

This is less true than it once was, but it is still the general rule. UNIX based systems such as OS X work better than (shudder) Windoze.
