Re: Prayers for Steve Weaver (our loved “saw”)

Click your heels together three times...

Home - where you can poop with the bathroom door open - and they're not waking you up at 4 am to stick needles into you.

On Writing

an excellent lecture on linguistics and the writer's craft - sets fire to some of the hoary old "rules", bureaucratese, and the extreme tenets of prescriptivism & descriptivism

Amazing. Looks like all that hiking is starting to pay back dividends! Just take it slow & steady, Steve. The Gunpowder River will wait for you.

Wonderful news - I guess karma can work in both directions!

Steve was one of the first S8'ers to welcome me here. I have not forgotten that.

Re: serious as a heart attack

I don't know if they're injecting the same dye into you they did into me some years back for a retina scan - but if it is, heads up: it'll turn your urine into a highlight marker yellow/green. Nobody warned me about it. Low-flying aircraft could see where I wrote my name in the snow. I've got two co...
