Why The Title "Auspex"?

Because of this poem, by Robert Frost:


Once in a California Sierra
I was swooped down upon when I was small,
And measured, but not taken after all,
By a great eagle bird in all its terror.

Such auspices are very hard to read.
My parents when I ran to them averred
I was rejected by the royal bird
As one who would not make a Ganymede.

Not find a barkeep unto Jove in me?
I have remained resentful to this day
When any but myself presumed to say
That there was anything I couldn't be.

Nobody, through word or deed, will be allowed to keep me from doing or being that which I love. So I've moved house and am back in business, with the caveat, of course, that my blogging will be limited unless I have something worthwhile to say.

Talk to you soon!

As one of the Frieda's cats used to say, "I'm mere, I'm mere." Maybe it comes out the cat better. This is what I get for trying to quote a cat anyway. But, I'm here. Now lets give with whole ne addy. I haven't had anything to wholesale since the last time I tried it. Wait, I got it, I can make you a del on a cowpie. Let it dry and it'll help hrst your house. More later. I got to go bale hay.
