I know, I know...I promised some penetrating political insight in the wake of "Bomber" Halutz' and his friend Dubya's Big Lebanon Adventure. Problem is...Deb and I went out to dinner at Roux last night. Albacore nicoise - blue point soft shell crab - God! I am in gastonome heaven. Plus we went to watch the sunset over the Secret Dog Place. And shopping at the Lombard Goodwill (where we came across the elusive Volume #13 in the White Squaw series ("Track Tramp") - perhaps the best of the "adult western" genre. Went to bed giggling over the railroad adventures of Rebecca and Mikey.
"Have you ever seen the pistons
On the mighty C.P.R.,
With the driving force of a thousand horse?
Well, then you know what pistons are.
Or you think you do, but you've yet to see
The ins and outs of the trick
Of the work that's done on a non-stop run
By a fellow like Dead-Eye Dick."
