Saturday, May 21, 2005...

Today, aside from being a very busy day

at the Yard Centre, was also Armed Forces

Day. Would that we lived in a werld that

celebrated Unarmed Forces Day. OR~a place

where winning the Nobel Peace prize meant

that you had to try even harder that year to

finally End the suffering of all Humanity.

It's a scant prayer in troubling times.

What i meant to say is that my Fambly has

offered up many strong individuals into the

Service of Freedom...and we have nearly

never lost a One to anything but old age.

{My perfect blessings and condolences on

those families who have Paid much more.}

We have a particular propensity of sending

Boys out on boats...id est, into the Navy and

the Marines, and occasionally to the Guard

service [Coasty Cap=sizer] & the Merchants

[Uncle Malcolm at his best]. Only now, in my

middling age do i Appreciate what my male

relatives underwent to protect the life i lead

as a piddling Pacifist. And, more=over, what

the wives & sisters endure in the Shadow of

their Dedication. It's the job your own mother

wishes you wouldn't take. THEY did.

Run, run, run. Paper products! Instant Coffee!

Gasoline! It's a good thing i'm back at werk

and occasionally able to pay for such things.

{It's all on paper, or mostly so; real money

gives me a Rash.} Thereyago.

Amid all the hub=bub about this new Star

Wars installment, Regard The Sith, we have

lost the two remaining franchises of the Trek

continuum--Enterprise & Andromeda. I am

bereft. Where will i go now to catch sight of

the delightful Jolene Blalock & Laura Bertram?

Not that i caught every episode as they played

because who has that kind of Time? Does my

nerdy rhetoric exceed me? [don't answer that.]

*

The Riddler will be missed...altho, for a long

time i think Mr. Gorshin was just filling in

Spaces for head=liners in Vegas. That is, he

really was a big star in the 60s...and more than

a competent impressionist. Gone too soon,

we'll miss that we missed Frank. Heaven!
