Plans: Essie to veterinarian’s, study…
NOTE: A flurry of activity before the crack-o-fucking-dawn.
I posted something on Facebook; a picture about not judging me before you get to know me. For some reason this Facebook friend started lavishing praises on me:
*My knowledge of you would consist of the following 'judgments' (impressions); valiant, trustworthy, honest, brave, just, weird name like me.
*I don't think I would ever want to underestimate you…
*And even though we've talked, you are far too honorable a man to ever have come up in conversation, other than perhaps in reference to a truth or two you may have mentioned or to praise your valor!
*I would say you are basically Thor in my cyberpantheon of hyperentities.
…I rejoice in this opportunity to recreate aspects of my reality alongside such glorious heroes such as yourself. Glory Unto Death!!!!!
Lemme tell ya, it takes A LOT to humble me, but this guy certainly did it. I was just floored by his compliments and let him know my appreciation.
**Two stray dogs came onto the porch snarfing up cat food. I turned Toby loose on them. He properly came back when I called him.
Fruchtbarkeit/Saturday, we pray to Sibba, and to Ing-Frô, lighting green candles (for fertility):
Sibba, Great Goddess of Fertility and Family, wife of Donar; let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba, that we may do our work in the world. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HAIL, SIBBA, as we honor the Sibba that resides in us all!
(peace, good seasons), the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the god of this World. When the day to day wears us down remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing-Frô, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HAIL, ING-FRÔ, as we honor the Ing-Frô that resides in all of us!

A sixth I know: when some thane would harm me
in runes on a moist tree's root,
on his head alone shall light the ills
of the curse that he called upon mine.
Interpretation: Insure my words are tru and hones (Ansuz) and there shall be balance (Ka).
Outcome: Toby on a very abbreviated walk before I take Essie into the vet’s for her stitch removal.
The Vet said Essie has healed well.
Jeez, take out a couple of stitches and a kitty goes crazy fun!
Toby was well behaved as we ventured out into parts unknown; well, at least as far as Toby was concerned; all sorts of new smells! I told him, “The same rules apply.” I think he understood.
Here are the voice commands to which Toby readily responds:
*Wait (don’t you dare cross that intersection until I get there)
*Go (okay, zoom across)
*Out here (you’ve sidetracked too far. Come back to the sidewalk)
*Far enough (you’re too far ahead, stop running and start walking)
*Scoot (I’m coming up on ya…get moving)
*Let’s go (I’m ahead of you…catch up)
*COME HERE NOW! (voiced loudly…he KNOWS he’s in trouble)
*Hey, Toby, come here (voiced softly, coupled with a hand gesture, he knows all is well)
*Toby HUP! (Come a-running boy! HURRY UP!)
More times than not I precede any command by calling his name; making sure I have his attention
Made arrangements with a friend to meet me tomorrow at WATC for CATIA.
Trip to Dillons http://www.dillons.com/Pages/default.aspx I have to try to get to know her! We’ve talked a little bit while I was there. Yesterday she came out to my car and met Toby. She’s very friendly towards me, but then, who knows? She now has my number. I’ve opened the possibility.
JsMrFnChst! Cops galore on S Seneca…
I found a free online service with Huffington Post that gives my local over-the-air television programs. The TV Week thingie that I DO get will berunning out soon. This is better anyway.
NICE late evening phone call from my Irminenschaft buddy in Maine.
Two shots of honey whiskey…BOOM! BOOM! Out of the lights!
Blameless Paltar, gloriously shining god, restoration god, beloved son of Wodan and Frija: Let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on
Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and our leaving this life a tragedy. WE GIVE YOU A MOST HEART-FELT HAIL, PALTAR, as we honor the Paltar that resides in us all!
