Yes, where is Chapter 31?
We need his company.
Meanwhile, pass me...let's see now, Ah! the port I think. Tawny, is it?

Well, I think I'll put my feet up for a while...

Neat! "The Flying Machine" is playing on the big wall screen:

Woke up on the Baldwin sister’s back porch with an empty bottle of the recipe and about thirty stars in my head. Stopped in at Ike’s and caught up on the news and noticed a scrap on the bulletin board over by the pool table with some scribbles on it by someone named Tennyson who had passed through a couple weeks ago:

But the devotee, he mused a little space,
He said, “She ran a lovely race.
God in His mercy lend her grace.
The Lady Who Fought Barack.”

And then I mused a little myself realizing that Sam Clemens had finished editing a book in 1908 and a hundred years later someone bearing the same title is almost here—“No 44”. Creepy!

After all that musing I decided to catch a late trolley and come up here, and there you all are just as cozy as can be. Glad to see your all fine.

I notice when I look out the window that:

“…we are very lucky with a lamp before the door.
And Leerie stops to light it as he lights so many more;
And O! before you hurry by with ladder and with light,
O Leerie, see [us all] and nod to [us] tonight!” – R.L.S.

Grandpa & Clancy will sure to be by later for a game of billiards and a taste of that fine life boosting elixir. It helps with the consumption you know.

A boosting elixer is a fine phrase. Well then, open the ice box, get your favorite chilled beverage and... have some -

B-Two, trying to catch up on the stream of things here. Seems to be very dynamic and very interesting at this time. Pass me the brandy sir......

I wonder how grasstains is doing...I just tried an e-mail and it got bounced back as undeliverable. If you see this grassy, know that I, and I'm sure everyone here, misses you and hopes for your return soon!
