Sea Fever

By John Masefield
I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

    Mornin’ Everyone. Overcast and humid here. More rain last night, another 1/2 inch. Yea! The little lake has filled up a little bit. By this time of year, it is usually all the way up to the grass. But, it is looking better. I’m going to have to get my paperwork together to take to the office and renew my lease today.

    All I am hearing on the news is about the condo that collapsed. It is just too awful to contemplate. Like someone said, it is just unbelievable that that could happen here. And, the number of people missing is unbelievable. Prayers for their safety.

      Good day to you, aus! We’re at 82 presently and going to 90. Starting tomorrow we’ll be having what is called an unprecedented heat wave here in the Panhandle, from Washington state into the Idaho Panhandle.

      I’m praying it will somehow dissipate as I’m simply not into 109 degree weather which is predicted for Tuesday. And, of course, I worry about all the deer and other creatures not being able to find water. Not since 2008 have I been in such weather.

      Also, of course, praying for those caught up in the horrible condo collapse. It’s hard to believe such destruction. This photo is an example of how strangely it collapsed…

      159 missing at the latest report time…4 dead. From CBS: “As the cause of the building collapse remained unknown Friday morning, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said, “We have to figure out: Why did this happen?”

      “That answer isn’t necessarily apparent right now, but it will be identified,” he said. “And I think that anyone who was affected by this directly wants that answer, but also, we need to know: Is this a bigger issue or is this something unique to the building?”

    Biden’s Idea of ‘Unity’ Is an Infrastructure Double Cross
    By NATE JACKSON / June 25, 2021

    He reaches a “deal” with a bipartisan group of senators only to renege two hours later. A bipartisan group of senators has reached an infrastructure deal. Zzzzzzzzz. But wait — there’s a bait and switch, double crossing, and intrigue to go with it. #Unity.

    OK, no one says you have to dress messily when visiting the border…but pearls? Come on, where are her PR people? She should have come prepared to tour in the dirt, on a trail with bushes to look at the abandoned clothes and toys and shoes. At least pretend she cared. Good grief!

    EXPLOSIVE REPORT! WE CAUGHT THEM AGAIN: New Findings Shows Coordination and Collusion Between PA and GA in 2020 Election Steal
    By Joe Hoft – Published June 25, 2021 at 1:30pm

    We obtained a report showing what appears to be a coordinated effort in posting results in the 2020 Election between the states of Pennsylvania and Georgia. The timestamps of updates to the 2020 Election results in these two states are too similar to be a coincidence.

    The report below shows a comparison between the Presidential results recorded for Pennsylvania and Georgia in the 2020 Election. Per a review using the Edison data released after the election, the report shows tabulations in the election which are far too consequential.
