Oh Mel

Daily Draw: Tarot of the Spirit ~ 2 of Wands/Fire

On the 23rd we had the Ace, the kindling, the paper, the wood. But no place to put it.  With the 2 of Fire, we have the idea for a pit barbecue.

I'm reminded by this card it seems a simple plan. Dig hole, start fire, toss in Snark. Would that life were that simple. We probably need this fail, to make us realize we need to know how deep, lining, size of Snark to determine how many embers and how long they will burn, what the cover material should be, and if Snarks are even edible.

"Work work work work work"  ~ Mel Brooks Blazing Saddles 1974


  1. SNARK - a creature defined Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark"
    "If your Snark be a Snark, that is right:
    Fetch it home by all means-you may serve it with greens,
    And it's handy for striking a light.
    You may seek it with thimbles-and seek it with care;
    You may hunt it with forks and hope;
    You may threaten its life with a railway-share;
    You may charm it with smile and soap-"

    Snark-creatures that have feathers and bite and those that have whiskers and scratch

    1. Humm. I could get each one of us a thimble size Snark and we could pretend it is all about eating healthy? And I'll get my lip waxed soonest..

    1. one problem with a bonfire is you have to have starter. Did you know they put dirt in newsprint these days, and it is hard to get a fire started with it? They do it to achieve being able to read one side without the print from the other showing through. Boggles the mind what I know, which is totally useless information. Don't remember what I ate yesterday though. Could just make up something :)

    2. Well if you don't remember lunch yesterday it is because you probably were having lunch with the same King of Cups that I had lunch with it. Wait a minute I think we were both at his table and he put us to sleep as he droned on. No wonder you can't remember what you had for lunch yesterday. Who cares, you continue to delight with your bits on stored away info.

  3. I'll bring the salmon and chicken...
