A Curmudgeon Doc on the Eastern Shore of Maryland wondering what has happened to my country.
A walking carrot?
No no I take it back you're a truthful crustacean collector. If you say you're not a carrot then I believe you implicitly. that means that you are a collector of crustaceans who is also a ...... parsnip[Mops sloping simian brow .... leaves ....]
They bring in strange roots, which is merely to the undoing of poor prentices; for what's a sorry parsnip to a good heart? glad to see you're back
LOL always a pleasure to trade banter with a fellow fan of the bard. Do you know I've only once seen it performed. And that was by a student group in Trinty. Oooooh 20 years ago maybe. Fascinating play, which deserves to be far better known if only as a curiosity piece. I'm never sure which of his "sole endevours" amongst the political plays I like the best. Coriolanus I suppose, perhaps because we "did" it at school. But I digress.Thanks for the welcome back. This time it was simply that I needed a break.One of the things that I and everyone associated with "Guides" agreed on from the moment I gave in to the pressure to start blogging was that every few months we'd all take a break.I find writing about what's going on in Iraq heartbreaking and it brings back very sharp and unpleasant memories from my time as a peacekeeper. Rather than burn out I decreed a break for myself. In this case the break was scheduled to coincide with Dubhaltach (my son who serves as a bomb-disposal officer) getting some medals stuck on his chest for courage and technical proficiency. He's recently married and I'm going to be a grandfather. Lot's of reasons to take some time off. :-)I've also taken on re-coding the site for " Today in Iraq The link is to a very late beta version of the site I enjoy coding and don't do enough of it. Oh well.
