RE: My - HOLY CRAP -
Wait a Minute! One of those demented Eds is a Wolf - Pee Wee Wolfman Ed.
Another is the infamous old Jersey Devil - a flying reptile who actually eats pigs - whole.
And, of course, the third Ed, old Edvard, is actually a lecherous old vampire. You don't even wanna know what goes on in his Swedish Castle dungeon.

A bit of the Far Side I think. Clever Tom. Hugs
I consider that a compliment, always liked that cartoon series.
I never read in the crapper, I do my business & get out before I asphyxiate(sp?) myself...learned from experience, I did...ed
Good thinking - avoid unintentional suicide ... TK.
That poor Clem has a lot to learn. I made the holes in our two seater outhouse the exact same size. I even put one of those Lavender Air Fresheners on her side. We have lots of lovely conversations in there now! (But it does get kind of crowded when the dogs want to use it, too.)
May you sit on a land mine and that it will clear your thoughts!!!
PS. li'l Patrick is looking for trouble?
Uh oh, the Ed brothers might take issue with the caricature. Repeat after me Jersey Ed, Jersey Ed.
RE: Mr. ED’s - Wolf and Bear -
WOLFMAN - BEARWOMAN ...
It is said that a woman marries a man, hoping and thinking how she can Change him - and, a man marries a woman, hoping and thinking that she will NEVER change!
Eventually - BOTH FAIL ... but you two are the WISE OLD SAGES!
HAPPY V-DAY! TomKat ...
RE: My - FORT -
I built a Fort in my backyard. Comes in handy when Mean Tall Woman goes on the Warpath. And the dogs are pretty good about sneakin in supplies!
ARE YOU SURE YOUR 'FORT' AIN'T JUST YER 'OUTHOUSE' WITH THE DUAL SEATS?
WHERE YOU N' THE DOGS EAT THEM THAR PRUNE PLATZIKS - N' INSTANTLY CONVERT THEM INTO MANURE FER YER GARDEN?
N' LAVENDER-SCENTED MEAN TALL WOMAN SNIFFS IN DISGUST?
'FORT FARTY' MIGHT BE A GOOD NAME?

RE: MY - DRINK ANYONE?
Very, very amusing but you missed Adam's first hangover, hard cider. Love your reference to the Pabst bottle baby. That became my first blue ribbon headache! Patrick
2/22/10 ... PAT -
GOOD POINT! But, Adam’s ‘Apple’ and Mike’s ‘Hard Cider’ didn’t quite co-exist yet.
And - “BLUE RIBBON” - didn’t ‘catch on’ until sometime much later!
Glad you enjoyed - appreciate the comments. Tom.
** P.M. ** as in - POST MORTEM ... as opposed to Post Script ...
Oddly enough, just a few days after posting this piece, watched a Documentary about ‘Secrets of The Great Pyramid - in it, they showed a ‘dig’ in which a 4,500 year-old Carsophagus was accompanied by none other than ‘beer jars’ - so, apparently the ancient Egyptians were drinking beer, way back then!
Considering that they stored Grains in Silos, which were often Guarded during periods of possible Famine - wheat, and barley, and malt, and hops were probably quite prevalent! Who knew?

AMEN GEORG - AMEN!
GOOD LIST! MY PREFERENCE IS ‘THE NECTAR OF THE GODS’ -
BAILEY’S ... TK.
This poem makes me want to go back to the bacic H2O.
Good job Tom!
JOHN - THANK YOU, KIND SIR! TK.
Nice long-long write. Loved reading it. And after being struck by the hand of.?.myself, its a wonder I can still read at all...?
STEVE - GLAD YOU ENJOYED - THANKS FOR KIND WORDS. TK.
It is the worst drought we have in history....Western province - Between - George + Port Elizabeth!!
TINKA - WISH I COULD SHIP SOME OF OUR ‘BLIZZARD’ SNOW TO YOU IN AFRICA ... TOM.
Good thing water lasted or we'd all be gone. Time was only eclipsed by the ponderous variations in your words and how each evolved into the wisdom of this poem.
GEORGE - DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH WISDOM IS THERE, BUT THANK YOU FOR SAYING SO. TK.
No thank you on the alchohol, but I do love milk & some sodas, though diet are what I drink nowadays...by the way, you ARE long winded or long writing, hee-hee...ed
ED - LONG WINDED? MOI?
CAUTION ON ‘DIET’ SODAS - MAKE SURE NO ASPARTAME! = POISON!
GOOGLE THE WORD ... SOME ‘EXPERTS’ BELIEVE THAT IN ‘DESERT STORM’ THOUSANDS OF CASES OF PALLETIZED DIET SODAS, AFTER SITTING IN THE HOT SUN, HAD THE ASPARTAME TRANSFORM INTO FORMALDEHIDE - CAUSING MANY VETERANS LONG TERM ILLNESSES!
OTHERS STATE THAT FREQUENT DIGESTION OF ASPARTAME HAS CAUSED PEOPLE TO BE WRONGLY DIAGNOSED WITH M-S!
SIMPLE CHEAP TEST IS TO AVOID IT FOR 30 CONSECUTIVE DAYS - AND SEE IF ANY ‘SYMPTOMS’ MIRACULOUSLY DISAPPEAR!
CONSIDERING WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH HEALTHWISE - IT
COULD VERY WELL BE A CAUSAL RELATIONSHIP!
PEACE - FRIEND ... TOM.
RE: My - BLUE GOLD - Water Wars - Documentary Review
A thought provoking piece!!
TINKA - THANKS! TK.
Interesting. We will look up that film. Most people who reside in the Fraser valley here in Canada don't know that we are providing a great deal of water to Washington St. and further south. The Chilliwack river touches on the border between our two countries and is being diverted away from the agricultural land in the south west of the valley; right under our nosed and blind folds. In addition, much of the land which has small rivers/creeks running through it has options placed on them for future development of hydro power. So even if you were to buy a parcel of land with this feature, guess what??? the water is not yours. Want a drink anyone? Water is gold alright and we all pay the sur-charges in one way or another. Thanks for sharing Tom. Hugs, J'nia
THANKS FOR INFO ABOUT YOUR ‘NECK OF THE WOODS.’
AMAZING HOW CLOSELY OUR TWO GOVERNMENTS THINK, EH WOT?
HUGS BACK ATCHA ... TK.
Contrary to what many still like to believe – fresh water, like every other resource on this dying planet, is a finite commodity, not infinite.
Global consumption of water is now doubling every 20 years, and our human population growth is now skyrocketing out of control. According to the UN, more than one billion people already lack access to fresh drinking water.
If these current trends persist, by the year 2025 the demand for freshwater is expected to rise to 56 percent above the amount that is currently available.
And, if all the above is true , it shouldn’t surprise anyone that gigantic corporations, like they do with every other dwindling resource, will be the ones deciding who gets the vanishing water, and how much it will cost them.
The family farm is already a thing of the past; giant corporations own the farming industry, and control our food prices, as they do the oil industry. Corporate owned water will soon join corporate owned food and fuel. And those that can afford to, will pay any price for Earth’s dwindling fresh water in the years to come.
This old world of ours just keeps getting worse.
THANK YOU FOR SUCH INFORMATIVE COMMENTS -
YES, A SAD WORLD INDEED! TOM.
Amen, Tom….Big Government-Big Corporations-Big Unions-Big Media…Big means lots of room for evil to hide and crawl it’s way to the top. Once there, we‘re all screwed..
BIG = BAD = WOLF! MONEY = POWER = GREED!
THANKS FOR COMMENTS. TOM.

PLEASE TELL ME THAT YOU DO NOT DRINK 'DIET' SODAS, LOADED WITH THE POISON - ASPARTAME!
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MIS-DIAGNOSED BY PROFESSIONAL DOCTORS, AS HAVING M-S ... SYMPTOMS AFFECTING ALL KINDS OF 'BODY PARTS' - SOME EVEN SUFFER TEMPORARY 'BLINDNESS!'
SIMPLE TEST - STOP DRINKING SAID 'CRAP' FOR 30 DAYS - IF SYMPTOMS DISAPPEAR, YOU THEN KNOW THE CAUSE!

SEND IN THE TAR BUCKETS AND DUCKS! TK.
The only sence the goverment cronies know is the scent of a dollar. and more power. They want more and but it's OK for you can pay more. The scent of special intrest really means more power and glory for the politicans! The more they get the more they do not want to see what this may be doing to the little people like you and me. Amen!
I’M WITH YOU PAL!
LITTLE PEOPLE - STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!

RE: My - The Glow of Love -
Awwwww, I knew it that day you gave me a hug at the WaWa for my birthday, you are such an old softie, Tommy...Ed
You remember that? My family has always been a bunch of Huggers. Got it from Dad, the Irish side - the ‘other’ side, the Germans, were a bunch of more ‘subdued’ persons. Oddly enough though, they all loved BEER!
Now that I know you like Hugs - I’ll cancel that case of DEPENDS I was sending you - and changed the order to “HUGGIES” ... TK.
Awesome. I love Teddy bears. I'm going to go hug one now. Thanks for sharing the warm glow. Liz
Glad you liked - thanks for visiting! Tom.

Thanks for clearing those up, Tom. A couple more of those and we'll all be able to understand what the politicians in Washington are talking about.
Good thought - but - if THEY don’t know what they are talking about -
We sure as hell never will!
