Today I saw the first slug of spring on my back steps. Be still, my beating heart.

Miss Story, mouse assassin princess, stalked the slug from behind the patio door, lashing her tail, determined that the rampaging brute would never endanger our household.



Tales of George McGann and Texas poker in the 1960s.
Many of our opponents came from distant towns and nobody knew or cared where they got their money. Poker players were by definition outlaws. Jack "Treetop" Straus was playing one time with a guy who would leave the game and go rob a bank. The FBI followed the guy back to the poker game. Treetop spoke for all gamblers when he told the FBI, most truthfully, "We don't know or care how he got that money."



BU

ma(u)

meaning: dance, flit

舞踏 == butou == (noun) dancing
見舞 [also 見舞い] == mimai == (noun) enquiry, expression of sympathy, expression of concern




Top radical is 'dancing person', bottom radical is 'opposed feet'. Henshall suggests taking the top radical as a 'wheatsheaf', the bottom radical as 'night' (夕) and a variant of 'well' (井), and as a mnemonic: 'Dance nightly among wheatsheafs beside well.'
