There'd been news purporting an Alzheimer causing sap, from an obscure XYZ tree somewhere in South America.

Such report ought rank at the top of the sounding probe within the medical industrial complex, what with the subsequent demise of the person, the heart-broken caregivers, the erstwhile pharma RD staff, the pill-peddlers shoulder to shoulder with Congress-fluke who golf the highnoon away, as victim slowly, passionately expires. Subtle need for that 20-year warning; those left behind or upon mobile devices, forgotten neurological keys like those butterflies of youth, lost to the inhumane horror of a drip/drop that of a deadly, arcane sap.

Meanwhile, the Midwestern Governor enthusiastically legalizes switchblades, and the hardware stores make a buck or two from the machete display. Apparently there's need to bushwhack and explore that path not made. That scratchy, brambled trail into the heart of darkness, then up a tree for other unknown methods of destruction.

Whilst the ox legs flail midstream, the curved blade teeth of piranha attack, shredding beast to bone.

That roil of burst bubbled blood.  

Alas only hoof and horn, that sacrosanct remnant scintilla of guts and sunbaked glory, gone.

Now hollow hide. Now blush pink awash downstream raucously ravished rippling diminished to rapid stones faster yet to oblivion.

Swiss steel, stainless. Black handle, small jack blade, folded. Razor sharp.

Thanks for the tension, Robert. JPH Gloria's on my shoulder waving around one of her Boulder Out Drew 'Yas - no it's a  Boulder Quick Draw (warm hand) and she goes on

tell Robert he's probably forgotten more about blue-boards than you'll ever know. Didcha unload those Norman Rockwells' from the van?! Sorry so sorry to come across so 4 acres - OM's still in his robe drowsin' with Upton Sinclair's OIL and and - you dinnit even get the snowblower ready!
What's Frosty the Snowman waitin' for alongside the road. A snowblower! I thought. But kept my lips half smiling. I can see Beulah & The Bare Knuckles on the guest cottage porch sipping what probably are Bloody Marys - in their sharply contrasting red and blue-blue red brand new parkas that OM bought for 'em

Your chill warms me Dr. Hart. Snow for you...a quiet nap for me. 

Wake me up when we get there.

Switchblades legalized in Michigan? Obviously fake news ... why that's like saying the Governor forced the whole city of Flint to drink water from the filthy Flint River! Surely not.

True (prolly fact) new~s~school water plants (purification, pumper (wrapped around my engines) stations, ozone rising pts. of interest are more vulnerable to sabotage (this is not a mirage) than old school newt-clear sleepy-plants. And don't lettuce not get started on cryptosporidium.


TOM - I'd my shot back in Method ACT II. However, it was right when the Top Secret Carpet Bombing of Cambodia lit up (Or did it?? I just don't know.) You may have guessed this, Assignment (at first I typed 'AssMint' but started laughing too hard) The assignment: Peter O'Toole with the kid in his arms Lawrence of Arabia (no blue sunglasses allowed!). I'd over-prepped with chilly and cold Rose' during brunch at the Tuxedo B&G subsequently over-stimulating with No-Doze crunching ~~~ and patient TA wrote that she said Peter O'Toole not Rod Steiger
