Nellie Robertson omment... Alone time Sometimes as we ponder the ways of mice and men, the asininity of politicians and the un- quenchable greed of bureaucrats, we find it most beautiful to take what all of us need, that being "alone time' '. We know not what your alone time is, but ours is probably very much like some of yours. You arise well before dawn, get the bacon on then dispatch with breakfast after toiletries and take off with a brace of gun dogs. If you are young as you take to the field and stream, you probably always load your shotgun. As you grow older and the desire for killing subsides [after all, ninety per cent of the wild game that you've ever taken had to be oven-pre- pared before you gave it away] you probably don't even load the piece. There's a deep pleasure in watching the dogs work, forever hunting, until their tongues drag and their tails are whipped to blood. When your hands are numbed and your feet are wet and cold you leave for a beanery for the heaviest gravy, spuds and beef or pork that you can find. Then, delightful of all delights, you take a ten minute snooze in your transportation with your gun dogs. The afternoon you drive back, you'll kum here or maybe fish there, always alone ex- ceptfor your dogs. And in a safe place, you target practice. Back home, while the dogs sleep, you prepare a great American dish, Italian spaghetti sauce, loaded with hot peppers, garlic, onions, mush- rooms, the works. That over, you build a roaring fire, hot shower, get acquainted with a belt of cutty sark, thence comes the most blessed of all "alone times" You put on the phonograph or whatever you use, play "Amazing Grace'; the pipes and drums and military band of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards; the farewell address of General MacArthur; Offenbach's "Gaite Pari- sienne"; and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sing- ing, nay they render, "Bringing in the Sheaves" and the "Battle Hymn of the Republic". So much for "alone time", this was worked in during the course of a couple to three hours goof- ing off from Work last Friday.
