Normally, with Doug buying, I would opt for a glass of Charles Shaw wine and ask Doug for his recommendation as to variety, but it's a pretty hot day here in Seattle. 90 degrees. So that would seem to call for a nice, cold beer.

Just recently I was introduced to a brown ale brewed in Montana that just made it's appearance here. Moose Drool.

Sounds ghastly, but it's a great beer!

Thanks, Doug!

here's a song...

Half a bee, philosophically,
Must, ipso facto, half not be.
But half the bee has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D'you see?

But can a bee be said to be
Or not to be an entire bee
When half the bee is not a bee
Due to some ancient injury?

La dee dee, one two three,
Eric the half a bee.
A B C D E F G,
Eric the half a bee.

Is this wretched demi-bee,
Half-asleep upon my knee,
Some freak from a menagerie?
No! It's Eric the half a bee!

Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,
Eric the half a bee.
Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,
Eric the half a bee.

I love this hive, employee-ee,
Bisected accidentally,
One summer afternoon by me,
I love him carnally.

He loves him carnally,
Semi-carnally.

well - all male bees are half-bees; (They are haploid, females are diploid)

Of course many species of bees the female does manage to eviscarate the male during the mating flight - so then the poor guy is only half a half bee.

I don't care if it rains or freezes
Long as I got my plastic Jesus
Sitting on the dashboard of my car

Comes in colors, pink and pleasant
Glows in the dark because it's iridescent
Take it with you when you travel far

Get yourself a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestone, sitting on a
Pedestal of abalone shells

Going ninety, I ain't scary
Because I got the Virgin Mary
Assuring me that I won't go to Hell

There'll be love and laughter
And peace ever after
Tomorrow, when the world is free.

The shepherd will tend his sheep,
The valley will bloom again
And Jimmy will go to sleep,
In his own little room again.

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it,
And look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.
All of us under its spell,
We know that it's probably magic...
... Have you been half asleep? And have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
... Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm s'posed to be...
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Laa, da daa dee da daa daa,

Braving those angry skies

The light of hope in their eyes
And though I'm far way,
I still can hear them say,
"Thumbs Up, 'Cause when the dawn comes up

There'll be bluebirds over
The White cliffs of Dover
Tomorrow, just you wait and see
There'll be love and laughter

Give a sailor his grog and there's nothing goes wrong'

A's for the anchor that swings at our bow,
B's for the bowsprit through the wild seas do plough.

D are the davits we lower our boats down.

E is for the ensign that flies at our peak,
F is for the foc'sle where the good sailors sleep.
G is for the galley where the good cooks hop around,
H is for the halliards we haul up and down.

Now I is for the iron the ship is made from,
J for the jib which moves her along.
K is the keel at the bottom of the ship,
L is the lanyards that never do slip.

Now M is the mainmast so neat and so strong,
N for the needles which never go wrong.
O for the oars we row our boats out,
P for the pumps that we keep her afloat.

Q for the quarterdeck where officers do stand,
R is the rudder that steers us to land.
S for the sailors which move her along,
T for the topsails we pull up and down.

U for the unicorn which flies at our peak,
V for the victuals which the sailors do eat,
W for the wheel where we all take our turn,

1. I'm dreaming dreams.
I'm scheming schemes.
I'm building castles high.
They're born anew.
Their days are few,
Just like a sweet butterfly;
And as the daylight is dawning,
They come again in the morning.

CHORUS: I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.
They fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams they fade and die.
Fortune's always hiding.
I've looked ev'rywhere.
I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.

2. When shadows creep,
When I'm asleep,
To lands of hope I stray;
Then at daybreak,
When I awake,
My bluebird flutters away.
Happiness, you seem so near me!
Happiness, come forth and cheer me!

CHORUS

See the lookout in the crows nest
Flat on his back
The cook's down in the galley
Drinking rum extract
Swinging in the rigging is the brilliant engineer
He's converted every piston head
To pumping Aussie beer

We've got a pie-eyed aboriginy
Playing on his didgeree
Do you hear the captain
Whistling the blues?
A banjo pickin' bos'un
And a crew that hates the ocean
On the Sydney Harbour Ferry Boat
Loaded up with booze!

Please make mine Sahkeapeare Stout. . .

THE LUMBERMAN'S ALPHABET

A is for axes that you may all know;
And B is for boys that make them all go;
C is for choppers so early begun
And D is for danger we often stand in.

CHORUS :

'Tis merry, 'tis merry, 'tis merry are we
No mortal on earth, so happy as we.
A derry, Lo derry, Ring derry dum.
Give us shantymen's grog and there'll nothing go wrong.

E is the echo that through the woods rang:
F is the foreman, head one of our gang;
G is the grindstone so merrily goes round
And H js the handle, so smoothly 'tis worn.

I is the Iron that mark-ed the pine;
J is the Jov-al that's never behind;
K is the keen edge our axes we keep
And L is the lice that over us creep.

M is the moss we patch-ed the cracks
And N is the needle we patch-ed our pants;
O is the owl that hooteth at night
And P is the pine that always falls right.

Q is the quarrel we never allow;
R is the river we float our logs down
S is the sleds so stout and so strong
And T is the teams that go jog 'em along.

U is the use we put our teams to;
V is the valley we draw our logs through;
W is the woods we leave in the spring
And this is all I am going to sing.


Now, this ain't the version I leaned from Da, who worked in a camp in the thirties, but it's close. Derry hiiii, derry doooe, derry higheee, derry dum, give the shanty by's whiskey, there's work ta be donnne.

Sev -en times he got a -board his train
And sev -en times he hur -ried back to kiss his love a -gain, and tell her

Chorus:
"Toot, Toot, Tootsie, Good -Bye!
Toot, Toot, Tootsie, don't cry,
The choo choo train that takes me,
A -way from you no words can tell how sad it makes me,
Kiss me, Tooot -sie, and then,
Do it o -ver a -gain,
Watch for the mail, I'll nev -er fail,
If you don't get a let -ter then you'll know I'm in jail,
Tut, tut, Toot -sie don't cry, Toot, Toot, Tootsie Good -Bye!"

Gee... I never did write it down as I was taught... so, why not? Here it is, as best as I remember it...

A's for the axes that youse all own;
And B's for boys that can use em also;
C's for the chopping which now begins;
And D's for the danger that we do stand in.

And how merry are we;
No mortal on earth, are as happy are we.
Derry hi, derry doe, derry higheee, derry dum,
Give the Shanty by's whiskey, there's work ta be done.

E's is the echo that rings through the woods
And F's for the foreman that booses our job;
G's for the grindstone we grinds our axe on;
And H'ach for the handle so smooth wore around.

And how merry are we;
No mortal on earth, are as happy are we.
Derry hi, derry doe, derry higheee, derry dum,
Give the Shanty by's whiskey, there's nothin goes wrong.

I's for the Iron that marks out our pines;
And J's for the Jovial that's always in time;
K's for keen edges we all have to keep;
And L's for the lice that o'er us do creep.

And how merry are we;
No mortal on earth, are as happy are we.
Derry hi, derry doe, derry higheee, derry dum,
Give the Shanty by's whiskey, the bosses are gone.

M's for the moss we stogs in our camp;
And N's for the needle as we sew our pants;
O's for the owl that screeches by night;
And P's for the tall pine that always we do slay right.

And how merry are we;
No mortal on earth, are as happy are we.
Derry hi, derry doe, derry higheee, derry dum,
Give the Shanty by's whiskey, our work is soon done.

Q's for the quarrelling that we don't allow;
And R's for the river where we float our boughs;
S is for the sleds so stout and so strong;
And T's for the big teams that hauls em along.

And how merry are we;
No mortal on earth, are as happy are we.
Derry hi, derry doe, derry higheee, derry dum,
Give the Shanty by's whiskey, and pay them or dun.

U's for the uses we put ourselves to;
And V's for the valley we drives our logs through;
W's for the woods we leave in the spring
And now I have sung all I'm going to sing.

And how merry are we;
No mortal on earth, are as happy are we.
Derry hi, derry doe, derry higheee, derry dum,
Give the Shanty by's whiskey, our work here is done.

I heard a rob -in this morn -ing, I'm feel -ing hap -py to -day
Goin' to pack my cares in a whis -tle And Blow them all a -way.
What if I've been un -luck -y, Real -ly have -n't a thing,
There's a time I al -ways feel hap -py, As hap -py as a king.

Chorus:
When the red, red, rob -in comes bob, bob, bob -bin' a -long, a -long,
There'll be no more sob -bin' When he starts throb -bin' his old sweet song,
Wake up, wake up you sleep -y head, Get up, get up, get out of bed,
cheer up, cheer up, the sun is red, Live, Love, laugh and be hap -py,
What if I've been blue now I'm walk -in' through fields of flow'rs,
Rain may glis -ten but still I lis -ten for hours and hours,
I'm just a kid a -gain do -in' what I did a -gain sing -ing a song
When the red, red, rob -in comes bob, bob, bob -bin' a -long.

A long time a -go a mil -lion years B C
The best things in life were ab -so -lute -ly free
But no one ap -pre -ci -at -ed a sky that was al -ways blue;
And no one con -grat -u -lat -ed a moon that was al -ways new.
So it was planned that they would van -ish now and then
And you must pay be -fore you get them back a -gain:
That's what storms were made for And you should -n't be a -fraid, for

Chorus:
Ev -'ry time it rains, it rains Pen -nies From Heav -en.
don't you know each cloud con -tains Pen -nies From Heav -en.
You'll find your for -tune fall -ing All o -ver town
Be sure that your um -brel -la is up side down.
Trade them for a pack -age of Sun -shine and flow -ers.
If you want the things you love, You must have show -ers.
So when you hear it thun -der Don't run un -der a tree.
There'll be Pen -nies From Heav -en for you and me.
