Bugs We Inhale On A Yearly Basis

Is there a stat on that? Any help would be greatly appreciated...

(Right, don't ask...)

Benoit, S (24)

And that's the division.  We'll see about the rest...


"The Messenger", Ray Wylie Hubbard

Seriously, how good is this song? Well, pretty fucking good.  And he's got a bunch more of the same quality.   A big deal talent opines IBL.  We were sorry to miss him last week out on Bainbridge Island.  Happily we saw him last year when he came through town...

Live version of The Messenger...


Last Night, Benoit, S (23)

New Story - "Knoxville Girl"

After not writing a story in 18 months, I have now finished two in two months.  A humble thing but mine own.  In any event, should you care to read this story you are my welcome guest.  It's about 13 pages, and is based on the song "Knoxville Girl" (which you may have already deduced).  If interested, send me your e-mail address and I'll send you the story electronically...


Benoit's First Blown Save of the Year Last Night

Full disclosure, he took over the closer role about half way through the season, so only had 22 opportunities.  But he has been pitching well, and I actually don't mind this blown save so much because, now, when the Tigers get to the post-season, and if he comes in to save a game, I won't have to read that fear-inducing stat Didn't Blow A Save All Year.  Always makes me nervous, that...

Danielle Made a Funny

So a month or so ago on a warm Seattle evening, still light out and would be for awhile, we were sitting with some friends at the (somewhat) dimly lit bar in the Little Red Hen when the discussion turned to so-called "liberal politics" and then, in particular, to the systematic destruction of our planet by a variety of governments, corporations and so forth (though how this destruction might be a liberal-only cause always puzzles me).  Turns out (who knew!) we are against this sort of thing, and that information flowed forth freely into the conversation.  And, then, Danielle added, "But we don't get outside enough to be eco-terrorists."

And there you have it.  Oh Bar Keep...

"Rose in a Bubble"

Original art by Rose Mandros-Bell.

A Thin Month Post-wise, September, Here at IBL Enterprises...

Lots going on, including more time spent writing fiction and an emphasis on finding employment, so taking a little break from the blog.  Hope to hit it a bit harder in October, and thanks for understanding (all eight of you)...
