    But not dust (or considering our impending deluge) not flotsam/jetsam either quite yet for Brother Muir please.

    One more Saturday night, Yeah!

    I can say that ’cause Arizona Time.

  • September 10, 2017 at 12:46 am

    Thank you for that, Chris. About bloody time we got something!

  • September 10, 2017 at 12:52 am

    Chris, only you could dismantle the fourth wall so throughly.

  • September 10, 2017 at 1:05 am

    Cutting out the middleman?

    Hmmmmm, Seems like something’s about to be stuck in the middle, man….

  • September 10, 2017 at 1:07 am

    And to all in the deluge, hunker down and stay safe. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.

  • September 10, 2017 at 4:47 am

    Well that well known slut Irma is coming to visit us here on the West Coast of Florida. Thanks Chris for distracting me for these few minutes of reading & imagining. Reality will soon be a real bitch but we will survive and rebuild just like Houston and everywhere a natural disaster hits. We are the Patriot’s Children, our nurture and nature is to come back better & stronger!

  • September 10, 2017 at 8:12 am

    That has to be the most romantic/beautiful phrase I’ve heard in all my 75 years. To all in harm’s way; prayers for your safety.

    So now Jan’s hair is long?

    • September 10, 2017 at 9:03 am

      When was it ever short?

      • September 11, 2017 at 7:54 am

        8/21 when I asked why Skye had tan lines and was corrected for not recognizing “That’s Jan”. 🙂

  • September 10, 2017 at 9:15 am

    STAY SAFE Chris!!!!

    So do the rest of us.

    There is no way an algorithm could show this outcome.
    Only a heart which beats true.

  • September 10, 2017 at 11:34 am

    Thoughts and prayers to Chris and all in the path of this wench! Stay safe!

  • September 10, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    Ah, Jan… you really know the right thing to say…

    Take a moment to appreciate the Sounds of Silence…

    World-as-Myth… or to paraphrase: “…who is more real, Shakespeare or Hamlet, Burroughs or Tarzan…?” The artist or his conceptual offspring?

    • September 10, 2017 at 3:17 pm

      The point of that rhetorical is not lost on Muir of course; Willie and Eddie are long dead while Hamlet and Tarzan live on.

      Chris loves his characters and knows they are immortal, while he and most of us down thisaway are feeling pretty mortal right about now.

      Would that we all can feel that our transience is made less so by what or who we leave behind. But as I said above, not yet, God willing and the crick don’t rise too much.

      Quoting RAH “Number of the Beast”? Excellent!

  • September 10, 2017 at 2:16 pm

    It will be interesting to see just how far the Big D is going to take this, or _can_ take this. He’s threatening the Gravy Train of the RINOs.

    • September 10, 2017 at 4:59 pm

      Unless they earned it by producing (for society and in other good ways), and still producing efficiently and well, No One Deserves a Gravy Train.
      RINOS do not qualify for a Gravy Train.
      Nor do Democrats.
      There are too few real Republicans to determine about them.

      Coming from the Construction Industry, I think Florida’s Building Codes are going to be changing even more to reflect the devastation wrought from these Hurricanes. See what is still standing after and go from there with any rebuilding.

      • September 10, 2017 at 4:51 pm

        When Dade County first put in building codes of a serious nature, the strength of the homes went down.
        In the 1950’s buyers relied upon the reputationof the builder. They made homes they knew would withstand a hurricane. Problem was, the old time builders would build a 2000 square foot home to their standards. The new builders would build a 3500 square foot home that met the Dade County building Code. Up to code and 1500 more square feet.
        After Hurricane Andrew it was easy to tell which were the older developments. The older developments had minimal damage. The newer, to code, developments were often piles of rubble.
        A sucker is born every minute, and a criminal gains great pleasure when masking his lies and theft within the majesty of the law.
        They have gotten better at it, but they are still rigid government clerical types. Big authority to screw productive people.
        I no longer have any skin in the Florida building game.
        Those poor bastards in the carribbean would have done well in homes we tried to sell in haiti.

        In Puerto Rico it was easy to see the homes that survived after some past storms. The homes that had all of the important walls and the roof made out of reinforced poured concrete were still standing, while just about everything else was rubble. I would say it was amusing, but that pain and loss isn’t.
        The question in society and culture is what we want and what we will pay for and what we can afford.
        I suppose those Dade County people wanted and could afford all of those built to code 3500 square foot homes that turned into rubble and kindling after experiencing the wrath of Andrew.
        Yup. dade County is now Miami Dade County. One of our Jaycees had aspiration to be on the Democrat ticket as Vice-President. No one knows where dade County is. Everyone knows where Miami-Dade County is.
        That Jaycee of ours then objected and said things after Elian Fernandez was taken from Dade County by AG Janet Reno’s orders, and delivered to fidel in Cuba. (Reno was our former State Attorney) Ah. History.

    Supposedly 3 million without power in Florida due to that sweetheart, Irma.
    I am one of them.
    Jerry rigged a backup. I’ll get a real backup system someday.
    I works to get on the internet. Did my mail also. Wonders of science.

    Continued prayers for all who are riding out Irma. May she weaken, die, and pass quickly.
