Cat Knows What's Right And What's Proper


 Felis Catus believes that you have finally figured out how to live.  Finally you are lying around in bed in a dream state.  Warm and silent. Many hours of the day.

If you watch him, you will learn it all.

FC greets the day elegantly stretching.  A visit to the box.  A desultory crunching at the food bowl, a stampede across the house and to bed.

His awareness is exquisite.  The slightest wiffy rustle and his eyes are open. Perhaps he senses action outside.  He will alert you.  If you watch.

He can't guard the yard, but he is a darn good secretary.  (keeper of secrets?)

He knows to beat it when the going gets weird.

Bye the bye, FC is mad for classic rock and roll.


A very good morning, this Tuesday on earth, to you all.

Throwing My Hat Into The Room

I was thinking of writing about the making of a skeptic today.  But my slight case of youknowwhat has taken a turn for worse and my head is punkin full of pain, so some other day I will try to make sense.  My poor kid's case is worse too, so that weighs heavily.  

I'm sorry for what I did.  I hope that Roto can forgive me for being an idiot.

Here is a killer version of Hey Joe by Roy Buchanan.  Wow.



May the Lord bless this day for all of us.

The Terrified Compliant VS The Cautiously Skeptical

 In thinking about the last nearly three years now, I could just as well called this postlette The True Believers VS The Last Bloodyminded Holdouts.

Was it the media that railroaded the public?  We saw scary films from China.  I am now somewhat ashamed to admit that I watched some of those televised performances by Fauci and Brix.  You could hardly put in a novel a more unlikely pair.

The flavor in the air seemed to make reference back to other older times when the country all got together to do something big and important.  Say like win the second WW.


Many of our friends and family were pressured into compliance. Some seem to have escaped damage, so far.  Some not. We are left with a really bad taste in our mouths, those of us who were stubborn enough to pull off resistance.


For in Him we live and move and have our being, as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we are also His offspring.'  Acts 17:28

May He continue to have mercy on the people of earth as we work our way through this greatest outrage.

I pray for a rebirth of wisdom and freedom among the people.

A Week's All Expense Paid Vacation In BOGUS Falls!


 There's A Little Cream For Any Need Ya Got! 💖

This is a bit like the good old Live Blogging, but in this case its a relatively easy case of the Wuhan Flu.  Many people have been way way sicker than I am.  Lucky for me I have an intact immune system.

Its a bit like being seriously stoned.  I am way deep in my head, but weak about moving around. I have body aches, but not too much more than usual, ahem.  There are some other issues, but fek em, I won't give them the pleasure of hearing their names pronounced out loud.

LoneStar is right.  It all depends on how you look at it!


As directed by MM I am talking those little magic pills which I don't understand the mechanism of, anyhow.  

They may be trying to kill us all off, but it may not be that easy!  So ha.  If Delta were here she would slap Prissy, but since I kind of am Prissy, I shall have to slap myself!

Here's to a Grand Day, right here and now on the event horizon.  

Much love.  Being full of the baloney I write is like being pregnant.  You can't sleep until the birth is done! lol

Two Kinds of Customers

 



Dr. Boyce:  A man either lives life as it happens to him, meets it head-on, and licks it, or he turns his back on it and starts to wither away.

Captain Pike: Now you're beginning to talk like a doctor, bartender.

Dr. Boyce: Take your choice. We both get the same two kinds of customers. The living and the dying.


☆☆☆

Which one are you? 

Romans 8:13
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

☆☆☆


(Scare Easy, Mudcrutch)

...Yeah I had somebody once
And damn if I lost her
I've been running
Like a man possessed
I don't scare easy
Don't fall apart
When I'm under the gun
You can break my heart
And I ain't gonna run
I don't scare easy
For no one

A Walk In The Valley

 


23rd
Look, even when I'm walking in the valley where death is,
I am not afraid.
For YOU walk beside me.
YOUR direction and YOUR counsel are my comfort.

Even when I am standing among enemies, YOU provide enough for me.
YOU take care to bless me.
Its almost too much.
I know that YOUR goodness and YOUR mercy will be with me all my life.
And at last I will live in YOUR house forever.
*

Please forgive my foolishness.  Its just the way the 23rd Psalm hit me last night.  BTW here is a short explanation of how we got the word "psalm".
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/psalm
It has to do with plucking strings as an accompaniment to a poem or song.

SHALOM indeed!

Love vs Sentimentality


"Love Minus Zero / No Limit"

 

My love she speaks like silence

Without ideals or violence

She doesn't have to say she's faithful

Yet she's true, like ice, like fire

 

People carry roses

And make promises by the hours

My love she laughs like the flowers

Valentines can't buy her

 

In the dime stores and bus stations

People talk of situations

Read books, repeat quotations

Draw conclusions on the wall

 

Some speak of the future

My love she speaks softly

She knows there's no success like failure

And that failure's no success at all

 

The cloak and dagger dangles

Madams light the candles

In ceremonies of the horsemen

Even a pawn must hold a grudge

 

Statues made of match-sticks

Crumble into one another

My love winks, she does not bother

She knows too much to argue or to judge

 

The bridge at midnight trembles

The country doctor rambles

Bankers' nieces seek perfection

Expecting all the gifts that wise men bring

 

The wind howls like a hammer

The night blows rainy

My love she's like some raven

At my window with a broken wing 

************************************************************

I've long held an antipathy to what I conceive to be sentimentality.  It struck me as a largely self-serving emotional gesture with no substance.  It seems to be only feelings.  

Before I dig myself in too deeply, I realize that feelings are there in love too.

Help me out here.  How to define love.  Obviously it wishes the best for the loved person.  Sometimes it costs.  Its sacrificial sometimes.  

I'm sure you commenters will have something useful to say.  Its always a treat to read what you say.
