Look! A Post

Actually it's many posts. I've even done some of that kind of posting. When I lived at the synagogue we had to replace some posts for the split rail fence in the back. We also had to do some sign posting.

Anyway, now I've posted at least once in March. Will there be more?

Steve and I recently saw a great classic Simpsons episode; Homer the Beer Baron. Springfield discovers that the town has had a prohibition law on the books since 1793, punishable by catapult. They begin to enforcing it again as a result of St. Paddy's Day celebratin' that got out of hand. Speakeasy's and bootleggers quickly spring up. The town fires redoubtable Police Chief Wiggum and hires tough Rex Bannen to clean stuff up. He cuts off the booze flow but is then foiled by surprisingly clever Homer who becomes the Beer Baron by sending homemade liquor packed in bowling balls to Moe's through a network of underground pipes. Even Marge is impressed, "This is the cleverest thing you've ever done." My two favorite quotes:

"Going bowling. Don't return, avenge death." Homer
"Here's to alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all life's problems." Homer

Actually, those don't look like posts so much as planks and pickets.

Hi. Of all the topics you and I discussed the other night, I am amazed that you selected the Homer Simpson episode to write about! Love you.

Yeah, well I took the site at its word. It said fenceposts and I didn't want to spend the time searching for a more paradigmatic version.

The Simpsons episode was a significant moment in mine and Steve's life. We've been bouncing the "going bowling" line off one another for the past couple of weeks. Besides that, it was easy to get up quickly. Some of the other stuff is more complex albeit much more significant.

I really like that Simpsons episode, and have even used that toast. I don't recall any posts in it, unless you count the posts holding the gutters for the bowling balls.
