    Oh my word, Silmarillion jokes. I’m dying here. I love it.

    Burt’s getting snarky!

    I was thinking “Mag” was short for “Magazine.” Turns out it’s “Magnet.”

    Look out Mags. I think somebody is trying to take over your throne! Either that or my meds are making me wonkier than I’d anticipated.

    The Trash Pandas have a long and complicated history. But I am dismayed that the ‘possums went to war. They’re the most laid back of the urban wild beasties.

    Oh, this is no where, and I do mean NO WHERE, near as rough as the opening to Silmarillian. That thing is King James rough until you get into the "Of"s.

    OT: didn’t get to read yesterday’s comments till now, and if you will bear with me, I’d like to say this: there were some trolls (or maybe just newcomers?) who stated their dislike that requests for financial assistance are posted in a comics comment section. I would like to thank those who took the time to point out to any newcomers that the BCN comments section is different from all others in that we feel we are part of an “ohana” (family in Hawaiian), and when you are part of an ohana, you share things of a personal nature (good news, bad news, requests for financial or emotional support). I personally thank Georgia and all Orbsters for creating this wonderful BCN comments section where I know I will always find kindness and acceptance. It is an honor to be a part of the BCN orb.

    John Ronald never mentioned this during his recent biopic. The Lord of the Racoons. Watch out for Gollum.

    While Puck might approach this from the raccoon interest angle, Agnes needs to make her name as an incisive news mouse. Don’t let Gutter take control of the interview here.

    The toughest part in the raccoon vs opossum wars was that the opossums played dead only to get up and attack the raccoons from behind when they weren’t looking.

    I knew someone who had a pet rat, and told me that of all rodents, rats were the best pet. She said they were smart, and clean.

    Me: “Clean? They’re always in the trash!”

    Her: “Who makes the trash?”

    To the Orb from the King and I: Through trials and tribulations and sometimes trolls, we are still Something Wonderful

    This is a story of three funny cats

    Their view of the world is wise

    This is a story of them and their friends

    Who sometimes will bring a surprise

    This is a story of those readers who care,

    And will always be there!


    The Orb won’t always say

    What you would have us say

    Sometimes we will do,

    Something Wonderful!


    We share our thoughts and dreams

    Some don’t come true

    You know we will all be there

    And that’s enough for you.


    Sometimes we can be wrong,

    But still we get along

    And when we’re standing strong,

    It is Wonderful!

    Orb friends all need your love

    And you will get our love,

    The story of our love

    Is Wonderful!

    I love the Silmarillion references! I agree with Natasha and Agnes, though, let’s please cut to the chase; what we want to know is what happened to Goldie’s people, and to see if there is any possible justification for their abandonment of her.

    As I type this, Yum Yum is meatloafed on the back of my seat, staring disgustedly out at the snow and muttering rude things under her breath.

    Authors often say their characters will surprise them, sometimes refusing to do what the author wants and going off in a new direction (causing problems with the plot/idea/outline.) Georgia’s characters are so believable, multi-layered and 3-dimensional – I wonder if they surprise her at times with the things they come up with. Thank you so much, Georgia, for letting us into this rich and satisfying world! Realzies!

    This reminds me of the Woman’s comment one time when I was trying to help the Boy with his math homework:

    “If he asked you what time it was, you’d tell him about the history of clock-making.”

    “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of trash, it was the age of recycling, it was the epoch of Possum wars, it was the epoch of the great peace, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the Spring of Princess Magnet, it was the winter of King Boot, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to the Rainbow Bridge, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” *

    I’m happy to report that the truce established after Raccoon/Opossum Wars continues to thrive in my backyard. Representatives from both sides happily help themselves to the outdoor cat food bowls and water. Apparently, the terms included “never occupy the back porch at the same time”. Meanwhile, the outdoor cats glare from a safe distance during those incursions.

    Raccoons may be faster, but possums have teeth like a Pennywise shark and claws out of nightmares. Not a war raccoons should fight.

    “Garbage guides. Refuse ferrymen.” The words “guides” and “refuse” can be either nouns or verbs. “Refuse ferrymen? But there’s no bridge! How can I get across the river?”

    The vile raccoon doesn’t want to answer anything. He instead chooses to glorify his vile nature. They undoubtedly started the war with the possums, largely massacring the possums and then claiming their the innocents of the war.

    Video games made me a big fan of high fantasy because high fantasy takes us to fictional worlds with cultures and civilizations, languages, history..etc even though they’re inspired by real world especially medieval Europe. Too bad the best high fantasy TV show was regrettably marred by sex, violence and profanity. Thanks goodness it’s over now. I would like to see more high fantasy TV shows. Movies are not enough for fantasy worlds.

    Good grief Burt, have you been listening in from our barn on my commentary about our inherited farmhouse project? I have actually uttered the words “this weekend on hoarders”… I have scared up a few raccoons in the basement (one group figured out how to use the pull string on the lightbulb), ran into one in the attic, and must’ve run into a possum patrol scouting out the back porch. Now if we could only convince the beady eyed fuzzies and the eight-legged monstrosities to help us finish carrying the rest of the crap out of the house, we might be getting somewhere. 5 1/2 tons of trash out, and counting.
