Cake for Bwana!


A poem lovely as a tree.

Toaster is sad.

They had to cut Herbie down.

And he was only about 212-years-old!

But he had a good life. And he gives good advice:

Stand tall and proud.
Sink your roots into the earth.
Be content with your natural beauty.
Go out on a limb.
Drink plenty of water.
Remember your roots.
Enjoy the view.

Toaster thinks trees are very smart.

I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Did he call Bwana a hippie?

He never wanted it too hippy-dippy the way some of the ESPN guys were doing it back then.

(Not to be confused with the Goldberg Variations.)

rrgirl contributes:

at dinner recently, my favorite Buckeye mentioned a friend who performed with the hockey band. shoe-lovers that we are, the discussion took a turn toward icey footwear, and then to the script Ohio on ice. savor that phrase. here they are:

Oy! What a work of beauty!

Toaster is verklempt ….

He wonders if the band can do “Script Ohio on Water Skis.”

If not, maybe the squirrels in Ohio can give it a try.

Børk! Børk! Børk!

Oh boy!

The Metropolitan Opera will broadcast Carmen tomorrow!

It is one of Toaster’s favorites. He particularly likes this number:

(It’s not Script Ohio, but then again: what is?)

Who knew that the Swedish Chef was so musical?

Toaster is really miffed that the Tournament of Roses Parade nixed his idea for a Toast Float honoring The Best Damn Band in the Land.


And those green and yellow Oregon band uniforms gave him a headache.

But he is enjoying tonight’s game and is hoping for a big victory.

7 minutes left in the fourth quarter and Ohio State leads 26-17!!!
