alan j., you are IMPRESSIVE!

I thought about researching that fern (when I finally got online a few minutes ago and saw Di's new post) and decided I didn't feel like competing today. I have an appt to get ready for anyway, and looking up a fern was likely to be an involved proposition.

All I really know about ferns is that they pretty much don't grow (in the wild) here.

So thanks for the information.

I used to love that movie, and I seriously don't think I've seen it since the mid-80s sometime. The ex and I had it on tape, but it was Beta, and we never copied it over to VHS when all the machines changed.

I'd forgotten all about it, in fact, until one day last week, I was bemoaning the fact (for the thousandth time) that our beautiful dogs are only portrayed as "attack" and "guard" dogs in movies, with bit parts at best, and then something in the back of my brain said, "Hold on a sec, wasn't there a movie or two ABOUT Dobes?" I had to sleep on it a couple nights before it came to me and I suddenly remembered the title. So I looked online until I found it, and it should be here today! So guess what Rich and I will be watching after dinner tonight? It's been so long since I've seen it, I can only remember the general plot line, and that it was totally a crappy "B" movie, except for the dogs. THEY are the stars!
Great movie, I was in HS when the movie 1st aired (early 70's)...Movie theater was beside the local pool hall, so half of the players cleared out for a few hours and walked one door down the street, to see the latest Hollywood movie.

The Doberman Gang - Beau saw the movie different slightly Lannie...HeHe.
- what stuck to me was the loyalty & bond to the trainers & the dogs ultimate smartness, almost human like
- the biting part was of less concern for me, from the show...not unsafe for dogs human family
- all I could see, was the most impressive dog breed...in the whole wide World
- leaving the theater that night, I told my date "I will have a Doberman puppy, after I go to College"

PapaBear married that HS date, and we got wed, immediately after College graduation.
- and a week later, our chosen puppy from a top Canadian show breeder was 9 weeks old & ready to come home
- our Tanya was Loved and Spoiled to death, she was a great dog
- and reaffirmed the Value of the movie, in our new grown up life...with a 4 legged fur-baby

PS - on the one hour drive home from senior breeder / baby Tanya chewed a wee hole in Mrs67 sweater...Haha...moms favorite top.
- this new dad was driving his $50 used Datsun B210 // one I fixed much rust on, welding in new tin and painting it in farm garage
- I could not believe how lucky we were / driving home with a beautiful Dobe puppy
- the Movie, started it all...Dobermans would be part of our entire Life

Fall has hit, and hit hard. It's been really chilly around here, and I don't think it's going to let up. I can't remember, but I think I mentioned our 60 year old boiler finally bit the dust, and we have to replace it. Looks like it's going to be close to $7K. I hate to complain, and I'm not really, but it's a huge purchase, and I'm not feeling very enthusiastic about it! I suppose the good news is the old one served for about 60 years, so it was a real workhorse. The new one should be a lot more efficient, and smaller. We're hoping to get it in soon, because....brrr! The great thing about putting in our air conditioning last year is that they are also heat pumps, so at least they are heating the house right now!

Richter has been demanding his coats, because he hates cold weather. So we are appropriately dressed for Halloween season! (Oh, and he's not THAT much bigger than Sypha, but the angle is weird on the photo )

Thanks, guys

I took Mocha out last night to potty and she ran up the stairs ahead of me and stood there, ears up, looking down at me. I thought, wow, if I could get the lighting right, that would be a nice pic, with Mocha in silhouette like that...so I went inside, grabbed the camera and as I was going back out, my wife asked me what I was taking pics of at night. I told her what I was trying to do so she walked out on the deck with me and watched. Of course, Mocha stood there and looked at my wife while I was at the bottom of the stairs, calling her name so I told my wife to go back inside and then maybe, just maybe, Mocha would pay attention to me again.

Of course it didn't quite work out the way I wanted because although Mocha was looking down at me, her ears were "looking" back at the door, listening for my wife. I tried code words like squirrel, banana, snack, and outside, but that ninny wouldn't put her ears straight up for me no matter what so I got tired of standing around in the dark and took the pic the way it is.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader. She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

Her eyes got big and she replied -- I don't know , lol So as I got to the end rows I said we will make the switch there and we did She was pretty nervous at first - after the first round - I said , take a deep breath and relax !
She did and then good things started happening - She felt at ease - I was wondering if I should trust her to dump on the go ? I watched her like a hawk and said Doc - she can do this - I showed her how to put the auger out and turn it on and warned her - she would have to drive straight not much room for error and she would want to drift to the catch cart - As we started to dump on the cart - like I said - she started to drift over - its natural to do - look left and you move your arm left , for a first time - I thought she did a outstanding job - She ended up driving for over a hour and got better and better every round + I was showing more things to watch and do - she was picking up what I was putting down - I was impressed ! She had to leave for volleyball practice and I was disappointed ! I was just about to turn her lose and make a few rounds solo - That is how much she impressed me - She is a natural combine operator ! Much like my wife was - is - The Mrs. could drive anything and do great with what she did - Not very people can do that - Men OR Women - I have found that the gals for the most part make the best drivers here on the farm - they pay better attention to detail !

Well better go - everybody have a great day
That is similar to what one of my Aunts told me, (she was a competitive drag car racer). She told me women were faster off the clutch.

I love my Auntie so! She was hot, in her day, like Danica Patrick and could shift gears and burn rubber! She digs her Camaros.

I told her what I was trying to do so she walked out on the deck with me and watched. Of course, Mocha stood there and looked at my wife while I was at the bottom of the stairs, calling her name so I told my wife to go back inside and then maybe, just maybe, Mocha would pay attention to me again.

Of course it didn't quite work out the way I wanted because although Mocha was looking down at me, her ears were "looking" back at the door, listening for my wife. I tried code words like squirrel, banana, snack, and outside, but that ninny wouldn't put her ears straight up for me no matter what so I got tired of standing around in the dark and took the pic the way it is.
I think it worked just fine. I get the lighting you were thinking about, but I thinks it worked just fine, in my humble opinion.

I am not sure how I should respond to that. Was that sincere or are you trying to set me up?

I have a suspicious nature.

Edited to say, I never look at my stick after I get used to the car. I just clutch and switch. I can even skip gears without looking at the "tree", as you put it. However, I have never driven three on the tree. I'm sure that would take some looking to get used to. Does anyone even have one of those anymore?

I hate to complain, and I'm not really, but it's a huge purchase, and I'm not feeling very enthusiastic about it! I suppose the good news is the old one served for about 60 years, so it was a real workhorse. The new one should be a lot more efficient, and smaller. We're hoping to get it in soon, because....brrr! The great thing about putting in our air conditioning last year is that they are also heat pumps, so at least they are heating the house right now!

Richter has been demanding his coats, because he hates cold weather. So we are appropriately dressed for Halloween season! (Oh, and he's not THAT much bigger than Sypha, but the angle is weird on the photo )

I'm with Richter!!!

Now I have to go spend money at Tractor Supply for an insulated jump suit. I am ready for one now and it hasn't even hit the freeze mark yet!

I played a dirty trick on The Mister. He was working his side job. Texted him that I needed a few grocery items. He called back and said he will pick it up and is that all I want? I will wait until he gets home and tell him what I really want for my Birthday is for him to go out and fill up the chicken waterers and fill their feeders for the morning. Cuz, I'm devilish.

That's what he gets for telling me I'm an old lady this morning.

Yes, it's my birthday. 55 and I don't really care. It's really just another day.

And, I can't drive 55!

I Can't Drive 55

One foot on the brake and one on the gas, hey!
Well, there's too much traffic, I can't pass, no!
So I tried my best illegal move
Well, baby, black and white come and touched my groove again!
Gonna write me up a 125
Post my face wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55! Oh No!
Uh!
So I signed my name on number 24, hey!
Yeah the judge said, "Boy, just one more...
We're gonna throw your ass in the city joint"
Looked me in the eye, said, "You get my point?"
I said Yea!, Oh yea!
Write me up a 125
Post my face wanted dead or alive
Take my license, all that jive
I can't drive 55!
Oh, yea!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
I can't drive 55!
Uh!
When I drive that slow, you know it's hard to steer.

The Doberman Gang - Beau saw the movie different slightly Lannie...HeHe.
- what stuck to me was the loyalty & bond to the trainers & the dogs ultimate smartness, almost human like
- the biting part was of less concern for me, from the show...not unsafe for dogs human family
- all I could see, was the most impressive dog breed...in the whole wide World
- leaving the theater that night, I told my date "I will have a Doberman puppy, after I go to College"

PapaBear married that HS date, and we got wed, immediately after College graduation.
- and a week later, our chosen puppy from a top Canadian show breeder was 9 weeks old & ready to come home
- our Tanya was Loved and Spoiled to death, she was a great dog
- and reaffirmed the Value of the movie, in our new grown up life...with a 4 legged fur-baby

PS - on the one hour drive home from senior breeder / baby Tanya chewed a wee hole in Mrs67 sweater...Haha...moms favorite top.
- this new dad was driving his $50 used Datsun B210 // one I fixed much rust on, welding in new tin and painting it in farm garage
- I could not believe how lucky we were / driving home with a beautiful Dobe puppy
- the Movie, started it all...Dobermans would be part of our entire Life

I have to jump in on The Doberman Gang!

After I put Axel down I went on a binge and ordered that DVD and several others pertaining to Dobermans. I've got them, want to borrow them? One of the orders was with James Garner, They Only Kill Their Masters.

The Doberman Gang is where my interest in Dobes started. I was such a young kid. My parents had no clue the impact that movie had on me. Now, they know!

Thanks ABTLH I learned some things while researching!
You don't ever have to apologize to me for long posts when they are the results of lyrics (or even poems)

Quote:
Kris Kristofferson - Best I can tell at least from internet he at least was part writer of the songs - more to the story??? Me and Bobby McGee - Fred Foster was the other guy and Sunday Morning Coming - looks like he did and Ray Stevens and Johnny Cash sang it. And Me and Bobby McGee - I really just recall Janis Joplin singing it
Well, I thought that Kris was the co-writer of both Me and Bobby McGee and Sunday Morning Coming Down--but the first site I looked at say they were entirely the work of someone else. Kris wrote some songs that Johnny Cash sang, and one of his songs (can't remember the title) was done over 100 times as a cover by other groups and singers--and it was one I can't remember that he ever sang.

Quote:
Bob Dylan - Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues - Guess I do not know a ton of his songs other than the "main stream" ones (Like a Rolling Stone, Mr. Tambourine Man, Knockin' On Heaven's Door, and Blowing In The Wind...etc...)
I think (and have always thought) that a lot of Dylan's best songs were never much played on the radio (which was where most of us of my vintage heard about them just plain because they were so long. I read somewhere that most popular songs on radio are less than 5 minutes. And I can remember a disk jokey bitching about all the requests he got from (um--don't tell me I'm going to go blank now--no, got it) Bohemian Rhapsody because it was so long.

Quote:
Phil Ochs - I definitely had not heard of Phil - looks like his life was a bit hard...I liked some of the songs I listened to. I came across this one he sang: The Highwayman
I had already known that one but from Loreena McKennitt. It is a poem by Alfred Noyes.[?QUOTE]

I actually knew the poem long before I ever heard any of the various artists modified it some and sang it. Had a very good English teacher in high school who made us read it and later discuss it. Again it's one where the imagery of the lyrics just wows me.

I think Judy Collins also sang an abbreviated version of it--I'll change the bolding and bold the version I think she sang (it's been a very long time since I've heard it.)

Quote:
below - the bolded parts are not in Loreena's version...Phil's version cut some more out...it is long
Now bolded by me for what I remember was the Judy Collins version

The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees.
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas.
The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding—
Riding—riding—
The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door.


He’d a French cocked-hat on his forehead, a bunch of lace at his chin,
A coat of the claret velvet, and breeches of brown doe-skin.
They fitted with never a wrinkle. His boots were up to the thigh.
And he rode with a jewelled twinkle,
His pistol butts a-twinkle,
His rapier hilt a-twinkle, under the jewelled sky.

Over the cobbles he clattered and clashed in the dark inn-yard.
He tapped with his whip on the shutters, but all was locked and barred.
He whistled a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there
But the landlord’s black-eyed daughter,
Bess, the landlord’s daughter,
Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair.


And dark in the dark old inn-yard a stable-wicket creaked
Where Tim the ostler listened. His face was white and peaked.
His eyes were hollows of madness, his hair like mouldy hay,
But he loved the landlord’s daughter,
The landlord’s red-lipped daughter.
Dumb as a dog he listened, and he heard the robber say—

“One kiss, my bonny sweetheart, I’m after a prize to-night,
But I shall be back with the yellow gold before the morning light;
Yet, if they press me sharply, and harry me through the day,
Then look for me by moonlight,
Watch for me by moonlight,
I’ll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way.”


He rose upright in the stirrups. He scarce could reach her hand,
But she loosened her hair in the casement. His face burnt like a brand
As the black cascade of perfume came tumbling over his breast;
And he kissed its waves in the moonlight,
(O, sweet black waves in the moonlight!)
Then he tugged at his rein in the moonlight, and galloped away to the west.

PART TWO

He did not come in the dawning. He did not come at noon;
And out of the tawny sunset, before the rise of the moon,
When the road was a gypsy’s ribbon, looping the purple moor,
A red-coat troop came marching—
Marching—marching—
King George’s men came marching, up to the old inn-door.


They said no word to the landlord. They drank his ale instead.
But they gagged his daughter, and bound her, to the foot of her narrow bed.
Two of them knelt at her casement, with muskets at their side!
There was death at every window;
And hell at one dark window;
For Bess could see, through her casement, the road that he would ride.

They had tied her up to attention, with many a sniggering jest.
They had bound a musket beside her, with the muzzle beneath her breast!
“Now, keep good watch!” and they kissed her. She heard the doomed man say—
Look for me by moonlight;
Watch for me by moonlight;
I’ll come to thee by moonlight, though hell should bar the way!

She twisted her hands behind her; but all the knots held good!
She writhed her hands till her fingers were wet with sweat or blood!
They stretched and strained in the darkness, and the hours crawled by like years
Till, now, on the stroke of midnight,
Cold, on the stroke of midnight,
The tip of one finger touched it! The trigger at least was hers!

The tip of one finger touched it. She strove no more for the rest.
Up, she stood up to attention, with the muzzle beneath her breast.
She would not risk their hearing; she would not strive again;
For the road lay bare in the moonlight;
Blank and bare in the moonlight;
And the blood of her veins, in the moonlight, throbbed to her love’s refrain.

Tlot-tlot; tlot-tlot! Had they heard it? The horsehoofs ringing clear;
Tlot-tlot; tlot-tlot, in the distance? Were they deaf that they did not hear?
Down the ribbon of moonlight, over the brow of the hill,
The highwayman came riding—
Riding—riding—
The red coats looked to their priming! She stood up, straight and still.

Tlot-tlot, in the frosty silence! Tlot-tlot, in the echoing night!
Nearer he came and nearer. Her face was like a light.
Her eyes grew wide for a moment; she drew one last deep breath,
Then her finger moved in the moonlight,
Her musket shattered the moonlight,
Shattered her breast in the moonlight and warned him—with her death.

He turned. He spurred to the west; he did not know who stood
Bowed, with her head o’er the musket, drenched with her own blood!
Not till the dawn he heard it, and his face grew grey to hear
How Bess, the landlord’s daughter,
The landlord’s black-eyed daughter,
Had watched for her love in the moonlight, and died in the darkness there.

Back, he spurred like a madman, shrieking a curse to the sky,
With the white road smoking behind him and his rapier brandished high.
Blood red were his spurs in the golden noon; wine-red was his velvet coat;
When they shot him down on the highway,
Down like a dog on the highway,
And he lay in his blood on the highway, with a bunch of lace at his throat.

. . .

And still of a winter’s night, they say, when the wind is in the trees,
When the moon is a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
When the road is a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor,
A highwayman comes riding—
Riding—riding—
A highwayman comes riding, up to the old inn-door.

Over the cobbles he clatters and clangs in the dark inn-yard.
He taps with his whip on the shutters, but all is locked and barred.
He whistles a tune to the window, and who should be waiting there
But the landlord’s black-eyed daughter,
Bess, the landlord’s daughter,
Plaiting a dark red love-knot into her long black hair.

She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader. She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.
