The Old Lady and the Smiling African Man would like everyone to join us in singing 'Rolling Home'. It's always struck her as a lovely song for remembering a much-loved person and also imagining the Next Stage.
The two elderly Siamese cats will play guitar and a mandolin.

There will be good stories to tell about all of those real-time events people attended with him and I look forward to reading them. Laughter will follow - as it should. It's part of healing.

Greg (Hardiman the Fiddler AKA Hardi) and I are having a bit of a private wake for Leo. We're incorporating him into our now-famous semi-geezerly New Year's Eve of all-night escapist TV films/hockey accompanied with a series of presentations of creative but simple finger food. Leo was so excited about our Jan. 1 retirement that it's only right we include him tonight.

Two new traditions in his honor will begin tonorrow-- brunch cocktails of cream with either brandy or scotch and espresso.

Leo was one of several Catters who first met us via a Mudgather and later came back for relaxing weekends on thir own, which this big old farmhouse has hosted so well-- lots of space for quiet alone time. Very often his particular visits included cookathons where the 3 of us would alternately cook together in the roomy farm kitchen and take turns whizzing up treats to surprise the others. One simple but VERY effective surprise was the mug of superstrong espresso with a big scoop of ice cream filling most of the mug space. I recall vividly his various facial expressions of delighted approval as each sip included more and more of the melting ice cream. (The last "sip" is via spoon.)

In those years, Greg was never off duty from emergency room pastoral visits, but now this sort of treat can be laced with the good stuff-- and be our annual Leo Special. We'll toast to our marriage tonight at midnight as he would wish us to do-- but to Leo tomorrow at brunch (turkey/tater/Swiss cheese hash with poached eggs).

We're also contemplating serving a brandy/cream-soaked cake with brunch tomorrow, which we will also name for him (Leo's Retreat), and repeat each New Year.

Maybe by tomorrow I'll be able to cry.

Finally emerges from the deep end of the jello pit as voices are raised in song, irreverent and joyful, funny and poignant.

"A clydsedale? Is that where all of the beer they sell at the tavern down the road (the one without a jello pit or time/space fluctuations) comes from? I knew there was a reason I liked this place better."

His partner behind the bar and in the kitchen, the alligator, cries real tears, none of that crocodile stuff. I'm sure there's a lot more tears shed from anybody who knew a singularly genuine, kind and beautiful soul. So long, Leo, a lot of things in here and elsewhere in Mudcat will never be the same. Your prescence leaves a big empty space.

The Musician’s Requiem

Look around the old tavern
at the ever increasing number of empty chairs,
the cushions still carrying their imprint,
the tables, their place at the bar
still bear the circle rings
of empty glasses.

In half hidden corners
sit their instruments,
their guitars,
their banjos,
their dulcimers,
their fiddles…

each crying to be held,
to feel the kisses of fingertips,
but the passing years lay dust on their frets.

Let us raise one last parting glass,
and sing one more song…
before our voices, too,
stretch into the quiet.

“But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be with you all”

Nathan Tompkins

A joint venture by MMario and I resulted in one of the "quick links" at the top of the page. Here is a link to how it got underway and, in honour of Leo, I shall raise a glass to him and all absent friends this very evening.

Russian Folk Songs

The Gnome stood on the bar and glared until the tavern was silent. With hushed tones he quoted, who else on Hogmanay, Rabbie himself.

“Here's to us, wha's like us. Damn few, and they're aw deed.”

MMario had a special rub and prepared aurochs like no one else could come close to. When he came out from behind the bar to sing he charmed the cats and the ducks out of the rafters and the squid slid to the shallow end of the jello pit to listen. He even managed to charm Nurse Ratched when he wasn't parsing singular and plural noun forms. His last posts were playful, to do with food and this fabricated place we revive and renovate every so often.

Who's working the bar? We each need a stout beer to raise in his honor. And to sing a few songs. I'll start:

Of all the money that e'er I spent
I've spent it in good company
And all the harm that ever I did
Alas it was to none but me
And all I've done for want of wit
To memory now I can't recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

If I had money enough to spend
And leisure to sit awhile
There is a fair maid in the town
That sorely has my heart beguiled
Her rosy cheeks and ruby lips
I own she has my heart enthralled
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

Oh, all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be with you all

At this time of year the Gnomes reflect on why they no longer have leaders. The last one was King Henry who, as people know, was referred to as King Hal. Of course, when it was proved that his lineage was false he became known as the false king. It became a joke when the Gnomes all knelt in honour of the false king and proclaimed

"We all pay homage to faux king Hal..."

He watches, a flagon of Dingle Whiskey in his hand, the other hand covering so the squirter fight doesn't dilute it. He is backing slowly toward the fire hose.

Suddenly, from the hole where the top of the Christmas tree extends through the roof, a flight of angels -- no, not angels, but angles flies through. Right, obtuse, all the various angles, and he thinks that they know all the angles.
