There is a possibility that I may join the mob.

I need a ginger feague to help me get going this morning.

mountain man said...

Feague (rhymes with league):

To feague a horse; to put ginger up a horse’s fundament, and formerly, as it is said, a live eel, to make him lively and carry his tail well; it is said, a forfeit is incurred by any horse-dealer’s servant, who shall shew a horse without first feaguing him. Feague is used, figuratively, for encouraging or spiriting one up.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.

Tides of weariness keep the torso pressed downward to the floor. I can't remember how to paint and it is irking me. I am irked. All I can do is eat. Eat and squat just for fun.

Dear MM:
Post nasal drip running on, and on, and on... heavy medication results in slight lessening of gravity. One's body floats about, attached to massive congested head...Speech is impaired. Typing skills are painful to maintain. Bed calls as a safe refuge...until the next lunge for the hanky - blastisimo HONK. Temporary relief.
Minute rummblings from cat perched on tummy. Artic winds whip around the eaves of the house, while drousy slumbers in a nest of bedcovers cradles us. A small craft, easing us gently onward ... to health..?

MM said...

Please get well soon USB! Kind regards to kitty and US. xxx

If you get your hands on an extra ginger feague could you please fedex it over? Better yet, might you consider just feaguing me yourself? I feel like it would bring back my get up and go, and who knows, it might remind you how to paint. Btw, love the sea paintings.

i like the first one. I already have barnacles on my inner thigh, I have a candle lit and I plan to dose myself in gin for at least 5 hours tonight.
I miss you MM

I love the top painting. Love.

MM said...

Capt'n, your first feague is in the mail. You will be receiving a feague every few days on a trial basis. Then you must become a member of Feagues For You and Me in order to keep receiving feagues.

Hi Lupis. I miss you too. Are you a vampire yet? How did the gin experiment go?
