Visits.....

...... a few days ago, Richard and Holder paid us a lovely visit..... and after a fine dinner a a local restaurant, we settled back here in the compound to watch their darling daughters beat the Hades out of their father on the pool table......it was epic.....

..... anyway, I was humbled by ole Holder..... see, she asked me about an old John Wayne quotation after seeing a poster or two of him in the living room, and I immediately made my way to the blogroom to fetch my old "Bartlett's Familiar Quotations"...... alas, the quote was not there..... and she, on her fancy cell phone, googled the quote and had it up on her screen within 30 seconds......

..... how sad is it that our telephones now are more capable than our fancy book shelves at finding information?...... fuck me, I have always prided myself on my collection of reference books!........ sheesh, just think of the thousands of dollars that I have wasted by buying books instead of blackberries!......

.... still, though, I drove into town today and had this song playing on the CD rack........ and it made me smile more than anything has in a long, long time..........

...... I love poetry with a passion..... and this song?...... it is both poetry.... and it is ALSO something that you want to turn up LOUD and lose yourself in........

.... as for the poetry........ the line "don't you know there ain't no Devil, that's just God when he's drunk" is absolutely epic.......

.... funny, though........ it isn't in the quotation book either....... perhaps that is saying something in and of itself.........

Bullshit So Far

Life is hard, it's harder when you are stupid!
It was awesome seeing you guys again. My youngest just loved playing with Fiona.
Next time you head South, let us know.
