I Am Not Obssessed With Logo ("Oh, but you know you are!"---Logophile)

*****EDITED 022107*****

I have replaced the second video with a second, very short rendition of the first one.....Gawpo

Okay, it's true. I did call her today and left a song message. She didn't know what I was talking about. Yes, I said talking. Because the song I was leaving really isn't what you would call singing. You shall see what I mean in a moment. Not many would remember this "tune." Not even if you were born long enough ago to have had this song as a contemporary of your existence when it came out. If you were lucky enough to be alive back then, you were also hopefully lucky enough to have never heard this song. I love Lee Marvin. Don't get me wrong. But how this song ever charted is beyond me. "White Room" it is NOT. I was amazed that You Tube even had this musical critter. It still lives. It's ALLLIIIVVVVEEEE!!! Ever see "Paint Your Wagon?"





Wandering Star, Take Two:




Okay, now for some more Pope Pour Eee.....

You have seen Mr. Gawpo, Sr's lemon growing talent. Now check out his other citrus abilities. This, believe it or not, is a grapefruit (see the cordless?):

















Not so long ago, Egan told us about Dungeness Spit. Well, this is what that low land promontory was named after. In Oregon the minimum size requirement for retaining a male is 5 3/4 inches. In Washington State, it's an even 6 inches. California requires the tossing back into the water, immediately and unharmed, any specimen under 6 1/4 inches. Okay, Candace---you're on. Let's see some good ones. I'm giving you a leg up on this one.















This is one of my pots. The body was thrown in three pieces, 25, 20 and 15 pounds of clay respectively, going from the bottom up. The top is also large. It was thrown in two pieces. This was taken back in January. All these pics are courtesy Razr by Verizon.

















Today's dose of Lycopene and bovine lactation:
















Mr. Logophile: "Uh, Honey? What did Gawpo mean when he said that he hoped you enjoyed his post as much as he enjoyed giving it to you?"

Mrs. Logophile: "Oh, nothing, Dear. Gawpo gives his post to everybody."

Logo: You are so right. Vedo che lei ama mangiare il granchio. Bene!

Wow, Logo, see how great the start of 36 is already????
Yahoooo! Crabs and daddy G.
With a shot of toms and lac on the side. Yummy-lish-us.
Gawpo~you are one H-E-double hockey sticks- funny kind of man!
I would love to run my fingers through your dads hair!!!

Playing both videos at the same time is fun.

All of the men want Ms. Logo (and the women too.) Can you blame them?

I want Lee Marvin.

I love Paint Your Wagon!

You are such a ham about how you give good post. Sheesh.

Who loves yer daddy? We all do.

And we love logo too.

Even more than Lee Marvin.

SQUEEEE!!! PAINT YOUR WAGON!!! Probably in the top 10 of my favorite musicals.

Ok, I haven't even finished reading your post. I'm still listening to the first vid. Be back in a sec.

And I'm back. Your pot is covered in snow. I can't see much of it.

Are you going to try and grow hair like Daddy Gawpo? I see that he's wearing a polo in this picture.

Blue TSG: Sho Nit? H-E-double hockey sticks? Ah, shucks. Thanks. I love that. Mrs. Gawpo, Sr. would not mind if you ran your fingers through my daddy's hair. Everyone wants to do it. She would share healthily the hair wealthily.

Nibby: I will have to try that. Ms. Logo is irresistible to us all. There is nothing we can do.

Cheen-Druh!: Yes. But Mr. Marvin lies a moldin' in the grave. Ah, what the heck. Go for it. Yeah, me and my post hamming might get me in some trouble. I'd better tone it down. (naw)

Cheen-Druh!: A friend of mine texted me yesterday that she loves #1 Her daddy, #2 Me, #3 Hitler and #4 Her ex-boyfriend. I thought that was so funny. He's only #4, but look who he comes after. Very funny.

Arm-anda: I am amazed that so many folks know Paint Your Wagon. It is timeless. I am going to Net Flick it. I saw it with my family at the drive-in in Salt Lake City. We also saw Cat Ballou in the family VW Beetle.

Arm-anda: Yeah, the snow makes it sort of a Half Nekkid Thursday model. I will post it post melt. The contrast is intriguing, though, inasmuch as it was at one time in an atmosphere of 2,194 degrees F. Daddy Gawpo wears polos, but loves to piss Momma Gawpo off by riding the tractor in his suit. He will jump out of the car, walk over to the tractor and just hop on and start disking the walnut orchard. What a guy.

Arm: Oooops. I will be glad to have that much hair to grow when I am his age. When I met him, he was 23 years old and his hair was very dark brown and kinky. KINKY-KINKY. Only one sister got the kink gene. Younger K sister and I got the brown and wavy. Baby S sister (same as Snavy's name) got the kink. Everyone turned white. I am the only one with any brown left.

Talk about "Oh, look! A chicken!" Methinks thou art vying heavily, indeed, for Ms. Logo's attentions.

I couldn't let the first youTube keep playing because it firghtened me, but the second was intriguing an gave me a fleeting desire to move to the isle of Sappho. Or was it Lesbos?

Crabs, hard things 6 1/4 inches long, I think my work is already done for me. It's that extra 1/4 inch that makes all the difference, you know.

Gawpo -- Paint Your Wagon is one of my favorite movies. The singing is pretty much awful, but I love it just the same.

My response to the crab -- let me get my plate ....

Your dad's grapefruit obviously has self-esteem issues. I can't believe you are making fun of it. For shame.

SNOW! That is one of the foulest curse words I know.

Jelly and cheddar cheese sandwiches? Okay. Cottage cheese and gravy? Okay. Raw steak. No problem. Milk and tomatoes? Not in this life time.

 
At Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 9:35:00 PM PST , Blogger Gawpo said...

Candace: Vying? No, no. It's BUYING. As they say in words that make Ms. Logo's ears bleed, "She don't come cheap."

Quilly: I love that you say that. I am going to be painting my computer screen with the DVD when Netflix comes through with my order. Okay, you're right. The little grapefruit was de-lish. Not filling, either. Snow is a beauty to contend with. Or can be. And those food offerings. Are you crazy, woman?

 
At Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 10:05:00 PM PST , Anonymous Quilly said...

Which of my food choices do you find the most apalling? The jelly and cheese I outgrew in my teen years. The raw steak ecoli has forbidden. Cottage cheese and (chicken) gravy is delish. I will never outgrow it.

All these years and you've never recovered your stolen bike? I'd have given up by now ...

 
At Tuesday, February 20, 2007 at 10:32:00 PM PST , Blogger Gawpo said...

Quilly: Ugh! You are making me choose??? Well then, it has to be the cottage cheese and gravy. What is KUY spelled backwards, girlfren'? And no. I shall never rest until I get that bike back. (Someone's been reading her comments, hmmmmmm????)

Paint Your Wagon is one of my favorite movies too, but someone should have been arrested for that singing. Your father does have great hair...how do you feel about older women? My friend in Australia is cuddly, crys and cooks. Perfect for you.

The line in the first video "Snow can burn your eyes but only people make you cry" made me think.My dad used to always say "nobody can make you unhappy without your permission".At that time I did not agree.It makes so much sense now.

As regards second video--you should have warned me that it is depressing--then i wouldnt have watched!now I did--but I do not permit it to make me unhappy :-)

Your dad is so cute.Please tell him i said so.

Lee Marvin can do no wrong - even when he's singing. He's the ultimate man's man's man's man. All with an undertoad of wit. "...which with any luck, will never come true." Heh. "There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers" (St. Theresa )

Wonder how many men Mia Kirschner has brought to tears.

Finally - a grapefruit that aspires to its name. It's about time!

Handsome pot, G. Looks like an artifact, especially in that photo, that you'd find adorning a monastery.

Kat: How do I feel older women? Well, let me see....first I place my right arm around their waist, then I....oh wait. I just re-read your question. Sorry. Dude, if she's got the three Cs goin' on as you describe, I feel just fine.

Ps: Coly HOW!!! Leave it to Ms. Ps to actually point out wisdom in a Lee Marvin song. My goodness, that is so true. I didn't even give it a chance. And you hit the bell and won the cigar. Good for you, Ps. The second video was only supposed to be added for contrast. Maybe it worked too well. I will pass along your appreciation to my father for SURE.

Somewhere Joe: A St. Theresa quote. Leave it to you. A contemporary of St. John of the Cross in his Dark Night, both mystics madly in love with God and each other and so God, and she comes up with that. This woman was totally En Fuego for Senor Juan. But her prayers were answered and for that she did indeed shed many tears. Love of God can make you cry really hard.

Ha! Great quip about the "grape" fruit, Joe. Crap. How did I miss THAT one? You nailed it, though. Okay, here's a Gawpeaux's father story. I was in our local market in the produce section. There was a sign that read: "Vine Ripened Grapefruits." My dad mentions that each and every time we talk.

And it was in the monastery where I learned to center. Learned to center clay as well.

I paused Radiohead for THAT?

It would have been better if Lee Marvin had teased us with his boobs.

Want to be introduced?

 
At Wednesday, February 21, 2007 at 12:24:00 PM PST , Blogger Gawpo said...

Diesel: Yes. You did. Mere mention of your effort is an indication that you need help with your Radiohead addiction. We've all seen it. You have become short with us; absent for long stretches; you come home smelling of RFI, glow-in-the-dark tubes and and and......I'm too upset. Let's talk about it later. You were so caught up in having to pause your addiction, you missed Lee Marvin's boobs. That's right. This is a digitally remix from the master and they showed 'em. But it only shows up on the first playthrough. Sorry for you loss(es).

Kat: Do I have to fly there? I suppose by boat would risk one of us not making it long enough to meet.

Gawpo, I wish I had speaker action down here. Your You Tube stuff is impossible otherwise.
Where you at????

Blue TSG: Ha!!!! Sorry about the audio impairments you suffer. Yes, I did hear about the speaker tariff in Canada. Very sad. Heard it on....uh....my speakers.

That's Pho me to know and you to Pho out. (very clever, you northern imp!)

Love that vine ripened grapefruit. Francis Ford Cupola has been cultivating it for years. Vintages three years old or more taste uncannily like a Tom Collins. You don't even realize you're getting sozzled... sorry about that, Blue.

It is just MHO -- and worth exactly what you paid for it -- but, that second video clip is worse than cherry tomatoes and milk.

Quilly: Yeah. You're preaching to the choir, but the Blogger Network said it sweeps week and I had to post it. Damn the man.

Malnurtured: Dude, just go through my posts and click on the one that says something like: This Is For You Mr. Fabulous. You shall be sated!
