    You’re really ending the year on a high note, Chris… 😀

    Naomi in a DDQ skirt
    Barely wearing a DDQ shirt
    Those who grab and call it flirt
    They will wind up in the dirt

    Sam and Jan in matching fare
    Bustle beer and brisket fair
    Safe to carry their fair share
    Under Zed’s protective glare

    • December 12, 2016 at 11:08 pm

      All the patrons gather ’round
      hoist ’em high and drink them down
      no limbs stray out-of-bounds
      the DDQ reverbs with happy sounds…

      You guys realize you will not catch up to Pamela and Delilah in the poetry department right?

      Although you take a might swing.

      Not even if you start with the line, “There once was a man from Nantucket….”


      • December 13, 2016 at 12:01 am


        Doesn’t mean I can’t dream….

        I’ll be in my bunk….

      • December 13, 2016 at 1:35 am

        Thank you, Jayne!

      • December 13, 2016 at 8:56 am

        I wouldn’t presume to challenge either Pamela or Delilah as my writing strength flows more to the technical end of the spectrum. Yet even doggerel has it’s place as long as there are lovely visual aids.

        Hmmm, Chirs Muir illustrated poetry from Pamela or Delilah would be lovely, for sure…

        Wow,there’s an idea!!
        I would buy that book .

      You’d be surprised how quickly those little old Hughes helicopter can cut through the sky!

      Many a Huey and Black Hawk pilot cut his teeth on those at Fort Rucker, Alabama. And performed miracles in battlefields around the world.

      • December 13, 2016 at 4:33 pm

        I got 110 hours in those at fort Walters in “Miserable Wells”, Texas in 1968 and 69. Don’t recall seeing any when I wnnt to fort Rucker, Al. But I left their in 69 so they could have stationed some there after that as I never went back. The military designation for them was the TH55 also known as the Hughes 300. I ended up flying the Hughes 500 in VietNam which was Called the OH6. Got just under 1000 hours. Great aircraft –

    “Headwind” my left testicle. Riiiiight.

  • December 13, 2016 at 3:17 am

    I take it he’s speeding home. Did you really mean “headwind” and not “tailwind?”

    • December 13, 2016 at 3:27 am

      A headwind would call for the increased throttle that Naomi heard, to maintain the same speed over the ground.
      ‘Toly is lying through his teeth. Does anyone blame him?

      Come on Henry. Keep up. The little head wins…

    “President-elect Donald Trump’s race to enact the biggest tax cuts since the 1980s went under a caution flag Monday as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned he considers current levels of U.S. debt “dangerous” and said he wants any tax overhaul to avoid adding to the deficit.”…
    And just where the hell was this Quisling slimeball when President Obama was creating that massive debt that he is so concerned about now?
    The son-of-a-bitch wouldn’t oppose Obama when he was trying to destroy the working class, but he will stand in fake moral outrage when Trump tries to help the working class.
    I am so sick of the Elites and the MSM that has become them.

    • December 13, 2016 at 3:30 am

      Edit that from “President Obama” to “Previous Presidents”.
      He didn’t build that… by himself. It was a team effort.

    • December 13, 2016 at 4:08 am

      Interpretation: Mitch McConnell does not want the economic surge and massive increase in tax revenues that JFK and Reagan had when they lowered taxes.
      Nor does he want the infusion of trillions of dollars of offshore funds in USA corporations resting overseas due to current tax code to enter the USA and expand investment and job creation and tax revenues due to a fair tax when compared to what our taxes are compared to foreign taxes.

      Will the House elect Pat Ryan president because they cannot tolerate the fact that a person whose ideas and intentions coincide with at least 85% of Americans thought and beliefs was elected President by the people? Is this the national Emergency they are touting? Will the electors punt?
      Will the house elect a Triumvirate? OOPS. Wrong millennium. Never mind. Maybe?
      it is only 10 trillion a decade, or was that 100 trillion a decade, that the globalists want up front that is at stake.
      Lots and lots of minions can be bought and paid to crush throats with heels using that scratch.
      It is only control and world domination at stake.
      No pressure.

      • December 13, 2016 at 4:25 am

        Yet he virtue shows by making his incorrect, but good sounding, claims.

        no more fake politicians

    • December 13, 2016 at 8:14 am

      he wants any tax overhaul to avoid adding to the deficit

      Well, then, quit all the spending!

      Most of us are sick of the RINOsaurs. McConnell sabotaged the conservatives in his last re-election and laughed afterwards. We need to dump him.

    • December 13, 2016 at 2:05 pm

      In an article on Harry “from the crypt” Reid’s retirement, it went on about how he and Mitch McConnell are really good friends. They go out drinking together, etc. McConnell has done far more for the Democrats than Republicans!

      Plus, he looks like he has a wax face that is melting! He makes me think of some villain from Dick Tracy!

      • December 13, 2016 at 7:46 pm

        Yup. An evil villain snuck into a power position on the supposed good side.
        One former girlfriend, who then lived in condos in a, or The, Trump Tower in NYC, went to some hoity toity high school and is a friend with a daughter of McConnell. Everyone knows everyone by a few degrees. She ran into Trump now and again back then. Her parents bought condos from Trump back then.

    The Hughes 500, on the taller, for deep snow skid-legs, is an astonishing machine! On the High Arctic Ice, one winter, out Seismic Crew’s Hughes 500 was out with the Seismic Shot-hole Driller, his helper, and our Crew’s Mechanic, whilst the Nodwell-mounted Top-Drive Air-drill was being given an especial servicing… During the takeoff, to return to Camp, a gust of the Blizzard-wind drove the disc of the rotor-blades into the side of a tall pressure-ridge! After the crunch-landing, one side’s gear-legs needed replacing, and the matched set of rotor blades needed replacing. AOG, on a shipment of parts, produces quite a swift trip, from Parts-depot to Seismic Crew! The Hughes 500 was at work again, 3 days later = most of the time was due to the complex route, to Resolute Bay, NWT {The change to Nunavut came quite a few years later, eh?}.
    I like the Hughes 500 quite a bit, regard it as a natural pickup truck in the sky, whereas the JetRanger, and the LongRanger, are more akin to a 4×4 Station Wagon = do the job, but ya gotta be extra careful about the lower rotor-disc, and the inside of the passenger compartment is not as handy…

    • December 13, 2016 at 10:35 am

      The Hughes 500 is a great aircraft and served as the OH-6 for years in the military. However Toly is flying a Schweizer 300C which was derived from the older Hughes 269. The 269 was developed in the late 50’s early 60’s and widely used in agriculture, police work, etc. It was also used as the Army’s TH-55 training helicopter from the middle 60’s until 1988. When Hughes decided to stop making the small piston engine helicopter Schweizer bought the rights to it. Also VNA (velocity not to exceed) is only 90, hope Toly remembers that.

      Hughes 500, US Army designation OH-6 Cayuse, affectionately known as the “Loach.” One of the most crash-worthy aircraft ever built.

    While the DDQ will surely not discriminate against persons of any nationality there will, with equal certainty, be no acceptance of Russian hands or Roman fingers.

    • December 13, 2016 at 9:17 pm

      ” Russian hands or Roman fingers” will find themselves broken, snapped and squished.

      • December 13, 2016 at 11:35 pm

        Toly will be Naomi’s exception to Russian hands.

    AZSCRAM, thanks! Now I know why I was remembering Naomi as a brunette. 🙂

    • December 13, 2016 at 10:16 am

      Yeah, I remembered the same. However, I learned some time back that you never mention the color of a woman’s hair, other than to express admiration. With Naomi, the certainly is plenty to admire – blonde or brunette 🙂

    A bathing scene requires a bathing piece

    making her way to the bathing pool
    the quiet of the house behind her
    only now does she have time alone
    demand free

    finding the reservoir water still hot
    she unlaces her dress, slipping
    sliding it down past her ample breasts
    over her full, strong hips and legs
    dropping it to her feet, stepping away
    the chemise follows over her head
    yards of softened linen brush her skin
    reminding her of a lover’s touch
    up go her hands to unbind her hair
    held in place with combs and pins
    one by one out they come
    freeing the auburn curled mass
    shaken free…it cloaks her
    not hiding her strength

    wetting her hair, she lathers away
    the sweat of hard work… replacing it
    with lavender, rosemary and lemon
    more warm water, a rough cloth rubs
    rose soap over her face and neck
    down, over and under hers arms
    around her back where she can reach
    working out knots as she goes
    more rose warmth travels slowly
    over breasts bobbing with exertion
    the cloth’s roughness eliciting
    a response deep within
    more water… more roses
    glide over her belly, hips, bottom
    down her thighs and legs
    between her toes and feet
    scrubbing away the days toil

    fresh water and a soft cloth
    for delicate, sensitive skin
    slowly, carefully she cleanses
    her center, her seat of power
    eyes closed, sigh smiling
    dreaming of him feeling
    filling that moistened
    willing, ready place
    lazy circles again glazing
    over, around and in
    from behind she hears his voice
    asking if he may finish her bath
    warmth pours over her
    in concert with his hand
    streaking soap and longing away

    • December 13, 2016 at 11:43 am

      “…carefully she cleanses her center, her seat of power…”

      Yup, that’s what I thought Naomi’s hand was up to and into yesterday…

      That is lovely, evocative and provocative verse Lady P. Thank you.

    Querry: “Firewalling the throttle?”

    • December 13, 2016 at 11:09 pm

      On most single-piston-engine fighter aircraft with the engine in front of the cockpit, the firewall between the engine and the cockpit was literally just ahead of the instrument panel (“behind it” from the pilot’s POV). The throttles are traditionally on the left console so you can operate them with the left hand while keeping your right on the stick.

      When you ram the throttles all the way forward against the stops to go to maximum military power (aka METO -Maximum Except Take-Off), that’s known as “firewalling the throttle” or “balls to the wall”, the latter because the throttle handles used to be little spheres of Bakelite about an inch in diameter.
