Afterwards.....

...I'd like to thank Elisson and his lovely bride for inviting us down this past weekend... folks, the man and his friends know how to cook, drink, entertain, and make a Tennessean feel welcome.... goose, roasted beef, beautiful desserts, fattened duck liver, barrels of wine..... good grief..... and stories, and laughter to boot..... Captain Aubrey would have been most proud.... hell, we even had a few broken glasses to add to the effect!.... it was also wonderful to see Denny the GOC again as well....... man, those fellows certainly know their wines......

.... it was a wonderful and welcome weekend of good company and festive excess..... which, I do believe, was exactly what they were aiming for...... Elisson, sir, you hit another home run......

.... in other news, I was just channe lsurfing looking for one of those creepy ghost shows that seem to be on everywhere these days and I ran across 24 midgets strapped to a DC-10 trying to out-pull an Indian elephant that was strapped to its own DC-10 airplane.... I was shocked, appalled, and weirdly fascinated by the whole scene, so I just had to watch it...... and yes, the elephant won....... but NOT before the well-coifed announcer screamed, "WOW!!!... just watch those LITTLE PEOPLE PULL!!"...... I nearly snorted a mouthful of tea out my nose.....

.... so yeah, anyway.... that "Man Vs Beast" show is just wrong...... I wonder where they found so many midgets who were that excited about pulling a 203,000lb airplane...... nevermind..... if you know the answer, don't tell me.... I just don't want to know....

Bullshit So Far

Some years ago I stopped by to see a logger I had worked with about a tract he was going to work for us in the near future. At that time, he was working on Federal property which meant he had a USFS nanny who stayed with the crew to make sure they stayed within contract. I met the logger and as we were talking he asked " Have you met our FS nanny yet? He's a midget." Unbeknownst to us, he was walking up as we conversed and announced rather loudly, "I'm NOT a midget, I'm a dwarf!" As we shook hands and I looked him over I realized he was in fact, a dwarf. There is a difference and as I discovered, to mistake one for the other, really pisses them off.
