So...
The bsta frames are being played on the tape player.
This brings up many questions.
Who is playing the tape?
We started bsta by pushing play, but now someone else has pressed fforward.
Will there be another puzzle to be able to see the next frame?
Why begin by trying to have us name the characters if it is a story on tape?
Are the descriptions below the frames being told by a narrator, or are they audio from the tape?
Why not just use photographs if you need a narrator?
But if there's no narrator, then
who wrote:"The wordgame development can be very interesting to observe but I will allow myself to skip a bit to the future.
I hope you don't mind."
??

Whoever is controlling things paused the player after running it forward, before he pushed play. Does this minimise wear on the tape, or offer more precise control than simply pressing play when it has gotten to the correct spot? Or is there some other reason he did this?

Oh dear, Poped, at least my post suggests a topic for the decree.

Ask yourself interesting questions today.

Welcome back Weeks! And glad to see HES has not become one with the sea. I'm not sure I'd want to reassemble that tree though; it clearly did not know what it was doing. And I'm glad to hear addams loves her new home.

(My wife) Katie and I have friends and relatives in the Gulf/Caribbean area. It seems there are some blowhards circling that area and using our names to stir up the sea. That's a bad idea; the sea does what it wants, and getting it mad is... well... sub-optimal.

If anybody got wet, we're very sorry. It wasn't us.

That is, we're very sorry AND it wasn't us... not that we're very sorry that it wasn't us that did it. :)

Yes, but that raises the question, who is the "I" here?

GnomeAnne has in the meantime formulated this more fully and clearly than I did.

No idea whether that other Jose is an OTTer too, but by all accounts he seems to be a loopist.

By all accounts, the OTTer Jose is loopy, so maybe they are related.

weather reports are a thing that is done here these days...

today
I was returning home
in the evening
on bike

it was late
it was raining
then it stopped

the sun reappeared
the sun was right behind me
and sunset was to be started

I was cycling exactly the opposite direction to the sun.
everything in front of me was gold form the horizontal light of the sun
and in front of me a big rainbow
and I was cycling straight towards it.

the sun was going down so the whole half of the rainbow circle was seen.
the sky under it was very orange.
as I continued cycling towards it the sky under the rainbow slowly changed from orange to purple
then it started getting dark and I was at home.

They came and got the 10 bags that I took out of the pool, so now "all" that's left is the piles from the yard. (And the stuff still in the yard, waiting to be piled.) I've got things spread out trying to get dry currently, because oddly enough the screens on the screen porch don't actually stop rain. (And the roof didn't totally stop it either.)

In other news, LW had to go get an allergy test this week. Turns out he's allergic to everything. (Well, not quite, 43 out of 68 possible allergens.

Indeed, 700 comics, and I just realised it has been over a year since I found this place. It feels like it was only a couple months ago.

A little too far.
Hopefully, we didn't skip anything important.

KXA: ... in this time.
B: Actually, I was fixing my bike.
FTH: Not the best place to do this...
B: Not like I had a choice,
But, the big question is:
How were you able to change the sequence of actions?
KXA: We didn't take the papers.



Woah, cool, we get to see more of the area around the road to nowhere.

That would suck, being a dog and having allergies. Is there something they can give him to reduce his sensitivity to some of them?

Yep, he'll start immunotherapy treatments in a couple weeks, once they have created his serum. Also, he gets antihistamines, and baths, and Apoquel, which keeps him from itching.

Seems like the players already have experience at playing this particuar game. And no hesitations about meta-game-talk in-game ("breaking the fourth wall", as it were). But then, it is a game within a comic by Balthasar, who is quite fond of playing with the fourth wall himself.

Oh, he's done time in the cone. The problem is, his cone has to be huge, and even then he can get to his back-end. And, then there's the problem of him running into things (and people) with it.

But yes, he's lucky, and hopefully getting even luckier.

Start working on a project that you've been putting off, and/or tell us about a project you've been putting off.

With the help of a local woman, I moved a Clematis Montana, 'Radar Love' from downstairs up onto my little deck.

It is a vigorous grower. It grew ten feet and gave two flowers in its first year.
It will shield me from bright sunlight and a questionable view of a junk yard.

Yey!
For my outdoor room!

Please Excuse the Double Post.
GnomeAnne has helped me make photos for you.

There may be photos inside the Spoiler.
Maybe....I hope it is not Spiders.
Spoiler:
Below: The Delphinium are Blooming. The stalks are nearly six feet tall.

Below: My garden is tumbling down the stairs.

Below: Three of the fifteen Raccoons. They are waiting for breakfast.

Thank You, GnomeAnne!
I think it worked.

Baobabs, delphiniums, a stairgarden, and shufflecats!
Shufflecats is another name for trashpandas.

Thanks for sharing, addams, those are lovely photos.

TrashPandas!
oh, That is funny!

I'll tell them.
Spoiler:
The neighbors feed the TrashPandas so that they will allow the Cats to eat.

I have seen them so full of food they can't swallow another bite.
They roll the food in their hands, put it in their mouths, let it fall back out.

,,,Repeat...
They just can't walk away from food.

What an adorable abode addams! I can see why you are so happy there. And all those wingish flowers you brought to it!

Those look like very happy raccoons - maybe because you're there?

While I'm here, also a belated "hi" to yappobiscuits ~ we missed you! Hope your shows are going well! Tell the cast "in boca di lupo" for me!
