Tomís Tall Tales Told Truthfully - Part 3

© - Tom Hyland - 06/27/08 - 7/11-08


A continuation of that which went before - Parts 1 & 2 - merely a Chronicle of exchanges of information - whereby one response evokes another totally related, or even unrelated idea, or reply. Ergo, there is no Main Idea, or Theme, or Thread of Reason - just captured Thoughts, that may, or may not, provoke or promote other cerebral stimuli. Only Time or Tide will tell Ö

Hi Tom Hyland: Why do you think I threw my cell phone away, and why I never answer my land line!!

But don't forget, both Superman and Spiderman also used phone booths to change into their super hero costumes. And, of course, that's why the fiendish covert conspirators have now taken out most of America's phone booths. It's extremely difficult for a super hero to change into his outfit these days.

Pessimistic Pee Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

6/27/2008 - Mr. Ed

AND - I AM CERTAIN OF ONE SOLITARY FACT -

NEITHER OF US WILL CHOOSE TO BE BLINDFOLDED,
WHEN THE GREEDY RAT-BASTARDS PULL THE TRIGGER!

Hell No, but I will insist on one last cigarette, which I will blow in their faces, and one last glass of Polish vodka.

PS My solar powered helicopter is almost ready, but don't tell anyone. I'll start getting death threats - from you know who.

PPS Homing Pigeons are already extinct - we killed them off many years ago. You'll have to use an ordinary, everday pigeon to find me in the woods - at my secret Solar Heli Underground Compound.

Over and Out.

RE: My reply to Mary, on SPLENDIFEROUSNESS -

MARY - Well, thank ewe, Ma'am!

and I didn't think of WYSIWYG - you have now given me an new idea to work on ....

be careful what you SEE -
cause that's what you will GET!

PEACE - TOM.

====================================================================


LOIS -

Well thank you Ma'am! but no, just the opposite - I both NEED and USE both the Dictionary, and more importantly, the Thesaurus!

In this example, I started with the 'germ' of an idea, the one title word - then, went to WORD dictionary to check Spelling - oft'imes it is NOT in there!

Then, went to Tools again, and chose Thesaurus. This usually provides a long list of Alphabetically Ordered SIMILAR words - AHA - then the Plot Thickens - by slowly scrolling down, and reading the definitions, one by one - not only do I LEARN words I didn't know before, but I also then SELECT those I think may be usable in my piece.

A really simple process that hopefully benefits both me - and my readers.

As Mary commented below, WYSIWYG - it may very well be my next TITLE!

Obviously, you are a SPLENDIFEROUS MOTHER & GRANNIE ...

PAX TECUM - TOM.

====================================================================


Hi Frank Bosworth:

BE PATIENT - AND THEY WILL COME!

You have only been here 5 months - I've been posting here 5 YEARS! Although over a Quarter-Million visited, only 1,143 commented, on 300 postings. Others have much better stats than I.

First - other authors have to visit, and discover you. Then, you will build a following of people who like your 'stuff.' Next, a few - maybe only a handful will start tracking you.

For you to attract others, the first step is to visit their sites and read, and comment honestly. When you post a comment, each time an opportunity to click and visit your site appears. Some may respond but not visit, others who do visit will be impressed, like me, and more reviews will gradually grow.

I would recommend that you start reading other respected authors here, like: Elizabeth Lucas-Taylor, MR. ED, Ed Matlack, the Twins - Karla & Karen
Dorman ...

You will NOT get rich here . AD, but you will make a few friends, and hopefully sell a few books. The old adage, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket!" applies here.

Peace, Tom.

Re: Laceís Lion Neighbors - 6/30/08 -

CHANTY -

I can just see your cute Lil Rosebuds, peeking out like pink Polka-Dots,
Erect - for the world to admire and perhaps even caress? Ever so gently though!
And those luscious lavender lips,pulsating and pursing, aspiring to be kissed -
And yet awhile, ye'll be gone a-healing, t'will be sorely missed!

A few years ago, I took a Course by our own Elizabeth L-T - To this day, I recite a Litany of Aspirations, usually Thrice-fold, and they always begin with: Every Day in Every Way, I am getting Better, and Better, and BETTER! Every Day in Every Way, I am getting Healthier, and Healthier, and HEALTHIER! Every Day in Every Way, I am getting Stronger, and Stronger, and STRONGER ...

As time went by, I gradually added a new aspiration, here and there, and now my litany contains a section on Gratitude - Every Day in Every Way, I am Happy and Grateful for my Faith, Family, Friends ... my Health, my Home, my Job, my Car, my Talents, my Blessings ALL ...

PHYSICIAN - HEAL THYSELF! In the words of Jean-Luc Piccard - "MAKE IT SO!"

XXX...OOO...XXX...OOO...XXX...OOO... <-- along with some other GOOD STUFF!

Re: THE NATHAN - 6/30/08 -

RANDY - AMEN! Well done!

Are you 'home' just for a visit? or for good?

ANSWER - ALL DIET SODAS ARE BAD = ASPARTAME POISON - APPROVED BY FDA, THOUGH!

FANS suggestion - live in a TRAILER, ergo all 4 sides exposed to sun & metal roof, kinda like a BAKING TIN - been doin' what you said for third summer now! When I'm out working for entire day, STAT is in OFF position & when heat hits 90* the central fan kicks in automatically & runs all day, BUT NOT A/C - still cheaper.

Upon return . nite, hot as HELL - but click on A/C, both OVH fans accuated, and strip to SKIVVIES - nice HOT cup O' JAVA - and VOILA! Comforatable in about 20 minutes!

NATHAN? 'til yew SPLAINED . end, had no idea t'was a HOTDOG! Is it KOSHER? Up here they are HEBREW NATIONAL ... I like the Dijon on also!

OH - meant to suggest before - seems you post all your little STORIES as BLOGS - I read because I am TRACKING you - OTHERWISE, I would never even see - I RARELY post as BLOG - either use Story, Article, or Poem -

You might get more READERS if you SWITCH ?

have a GREAT DAY! Tom.


======================================================================

Re: THE NATHAN - 6/30/08 -

LIZ -

Hi! "IT'S THE HEAT!" "NO, IT'S THE HUMIDITY!" <-- remember that old commercial? Have no idea what the PRODUCT was, but never forget the 'catch-phrase.'

Either way, I HATE BOTH!

P.S. - been in contact with CAROL A. she is a GEM! Still confused, but awaiting her next response. will send you a copy of last email ...

THANKS FOR YOUR ABLE ASSISTANCE IN THIS MATTER - MISS GOOCH!

how's G doin'? TK

======================================================================

RE: BICYCLE -

ED - LIKE ALL THINGS - MODERATION IS THE KEY!

Have you looked into YOGA? Chiropractic? My daughter is an Instructor in Y - son has a C practice, so I might be a tad biased, but they both SWEAR by it! PROPER EXERCISE, not just ANY! Wrong ones AGGRAVATE the problem.

EXAMPLE: sore back pain - 25 years ago, I used to put a HEATING PAD on it for HOURS - WRONG! Requires MOIST HEAT! Soak towel, squeeze out excess H2O, wrap around heating pad (a GOOD one, don't want NO LECTRACUTION) -

sometimes need to alternate - HEAT - COLD - HEAT - COLD - contraction & expansion of muscles -

TAKE 2 ASS-BURNS & CALL ME IN THE MORNIN'! TK.

======================================================================

P.S. - ED -

MIGHT CONSIDER A USED MOPED?

A TAD EXERCISE - BUT WHEN TIRED OR SORE - GAS GETS YOU HOME!

KINDA LIKEA HYBRID - BEFORE CARS GOT IT!

AM I BRILLIANT? OR WHAT? TK


======================================================================

Re: MATLACKís SNOWSTORM SOLITUDE

ED - GREAT STORY!

Years ago, had a an old '86 GMC CUSTOM VAN - STARCRAFT, I think - me & HEATHER - chocolate Lab/Doberman mix - tooled out from Bawlmer, headed west to Deep Creek Lake in W. MD. - never been there before in whole life in this state - FALL beautiful, scenery breath-taking, spent a really nice day there, exploring sites, sounds, food -

bedded down that night in nice soft warm van (chilly in mtns.) - awakened in early AM, noticed something itchy, or crawling? pulled off a big fat TICK -

THAT'S IT - we're OUT'TA HERE! breakfast on the road, pleasant trip to H-O-M-E ---
where the heart is!

TK.

===================================================


ED - OKAY - you convinced me! what we really need to invent is a good population reducer, not diet/pounds reducer!

OH - we already have that - it's called WAR! Instead of my favorite western term - 'Hang 'em High' the updated version will be an eastern term - 'NUKE 'em High.'

'MAD MAX' - 'The Day AFTER' - 1984 - 'Planet of the Apes' - ALL rapidly approaching! 'Apochalypse Now'.

Hell - the advanced ancient civilizations - Incas - Mayans - Aztecs - maybe history IS repeating itself, and - in the way, way forward future - a third, or fourth, or fifth EPOCHAL generation will be looking BACK to OUR wondrous, once-upon-a-time achievements? SG-1 comes to mind!

Time Travel? Space Travel? Dimensional Travel?

It's ALL GOOD! Peace - Tom.

Re: Independence -

ED - SHIT - SHIT - SHIT !!!

Hi Mr. Ed:

You ain't 1st on that one - someone else previously suggested that instead of youngsters being sent (who are thinking about - when they are gonna get LAID next, every 12 seconds, or so) - send old coots who are really PISSED, 'cause their 'peckers' don't work anymore!

Of course, the K-Rations (or whatever letter of the alphabet we are up to now)
might be costly - all them thar VIAGRA or CIALIS pills would have to be added to them thar CONDUMS!

What a play on words - WAR AND PIECE !!!

TK.

===================================================


Posted by Mr. Ed (author) at 7/2/2008 6:17:09 AM

Hi Tom Hyland: Old farts don't eat nearly as much as youngsters. Think of all the billions more Haliburton could make serving the old coots only partial meals, and charging the gov. for full meals! There's gotta be tons of more money to be made yet on this 'war.'

And when they got the contract five years ago to feed our troops, I knew it was all over then. We ain't leavin Iraq til we squeeze every last drop of oil out of there that we can. Or is someone drops that Nuke they are all afraid of, and nobody gets the damned oil.

Re: NO RHYME - NO REASON -

ED - thank you!

Today was tough - closed casket - severe head trauma.

YORK Record newspaper report made it sound like he was in the wrong, because he was not wearing a helmet.

Matt was a well-loved 22 year-old Music Teacher, who had just finished giving a lesson in his studio, not 200 feet from the accident site. He and his lady friend had just decided to go fishing.

She was in her car directly behind the big semi, who was stopped at a red light in the left lane. Matt was in the right lane. The light turned green, and he proceeded straight ahead (legally) and the truck veered right, to make a right turn from the LEFT lane, hitting the rear of the motorcycle, and catapulting Matt directly into a telephone pole.

The frantic girl jumped out of her car and ran directly to him, and he was already dead!

Less than 5 miles from home, and he traveled the same route every day, and had simply forgotten the helmet which he normally wore!

We can only guess that the truck driver did not see him?

GOD HAVE MERCY!


===================================================

SAME TOPIC -



DEAR PURPLE -

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers - they are appreciated.

The SUPPORT and LOVE which occurred over this past weekend were unbelievable! Friends of Matt, Friends of Kelly, his younger sister, and friends and neighbors of the parents, Debbie and Charlie, as well as Matt's music students and their parents - just came pouring in the door - stories of the great things Matt had done, testimonials of his dedication, courtesy, and downright LOVABILITY - were expressed through many, many tears to his parents.

Many of his young students created a Memorial out of the entrance door to his Studio - crayon drawn pictures and notes, flowers, and even a beautiful Rosary - all adorned that small space. Some of these students' parents started a Memorial Scholarship Fund in Matt's Name!

In the near future BIKERS from all over the area will conduct a BENEFIT RIDE with funds going to this Fund!

One day, while the parents were at the Funeral Parlor, to identify their son's lifeless body, 13 young women and young men just came to their house and CLEANED it from top to bottom!

Friends and neighbors brought: Food, Cakes and Pies, Soda, Beer, Ice, Plates, Napkins, Utensils - SET everything up each day, waited on people, Did the CLEAN-Up work, took out the trash, fed hay to their two horses - and even MORE!

Today, from 1-3 pm, the place was PACKED! At three, when Reverend MITCH started the Memorial Service, it was standing room only! After I was introduced, I read my poem to about 150-200 people, and it was well received. Later in the service, I then read excerpts from John Donne's "For Whom The Bell Tolls" - the Preacher then slowly rang a Peal on a "C" Hand-Bell 22 TIMES.

You could have heard a PIN drop! Later, after reviewing many stories about the Quality and Celebration of Matt's short life, the Peal was Repeated.

Then, Matt's Aunt Rosie addressed the group, with a beautiful summation of what Life, and Family, and Love were all about - a TERRIFFIC JOB!

Finally, his Dad, Charlie spoke briefly and from the Heart - and thanked everyone for all of their support, ending with a True story about one of Matt's young students, Sam - his mother said that once not long ago, when asked who he would like to be like when he grew up, his surprising answer burst forth without hesitation, and with full, honest conviction - JESUS and MATT -

I can find no better commendation than this!

Peace - Tom.

Re: Edís NIGHT CALLER -

ED - great write and story - gave me inspiration for a new post - have to write it yet.

also reminded me of a poem from my youth - author unknown:

Saw a little Birdie in the Sky,
he dropped a little Turdie in my Eye,
My, I'm glad that Cows can't Fly -
My, oh My, oh MY!

TK -- ED - OMG - you just used the WORD I had in mind and just started writing ... do you have ESP, or what? TK.
===================================================

Re: EDís ďOur Nationmís Shameful Last PlaceĒ -

CARBON DIOXIDE - ED, you just reminded me of a simple but basic fact about the Balance of Nature -

Humans breathe IN Oxygen and Exhale Carbon Dioxide, while Plants take In Carbon Dioxide and Give off Oxygen, right?

SO - we KILL OFF - the Rain Forests - thousands of acres - Mountains of Trees for building homes of Sticks - Start Forest Fires that burn Millions of Acres - Spray AGENT ORANGE in War to Defoliage trees - Spray Pesticides to kill BUGS - Dump GARBAGE in our Oceans --- and then WONDER WHY our AIR is Decimated? DUH!

Besides cutting back on Emissions, wouldn't it make Sense to PLANT MORE TREES? EVERYWHERE?

'I think that I shall never see --- another Anti-Pandemic as a TREE!"

Peace - Tom.

===================================================

Copy of my email to York Recorder Newspaper - 7/9/08

I am MATT's Uncle, and posted comment # 37 - I would NOT lower myself to CURSE some of the ignoramuses who posted - YET - your Moderator is ASLEEP AT THE SWITCH -

Inappropriate and Impolite comments - such as the one calling MATT an IDIOT - SHOULD HAVE BEEN CAUGHT & DELETED because of their callousness - YET - here we are, 7 days later, and they are still THERE!

I'M SURE MATT'S GRIEVING PARENTS - as well as the rest of his family and friends, and students, and their parents, as well as ALL BIKERS - will just RUSH to purchase your newspaper now!

Most Sincerely, Tom Hyland -

PROUD UNCLE OF A FINE YOUNG MAN!
