The Pipes The Pipes Are Not Calling

Okay the Ceremony of the measuring of TMFGITW has been cancelled owing to it is supposed to get really hot and it is smoky and ashy from all the fires burning around here. It will be done when it is not hot and smoky and ashy. Also the goats who went to the fair are on quarantine because Golly for one was caught in the act of licking a really grimy barn railing probably covered in goat influenza germs so we are taking bets on when she will come down with the Fair Flu. Anyway if the farmer gets the truck unpacked there might be an eyeballing or a guesstimating of TMFGITW height later in the day. Or maybe not. Also we need to find the bagpipes and someone to play them before we can do the official TMFGITW Measurements which are always done with "Danny Boy" whinging along in the background.

Thank you for updating us on the postponement of TMFGITW Measuring Ceremony as it now being 11:12 p.m. on Tuesday here in Missouri and having waited all day for the M. C. results but now learning of the delay caused by those horrible fires destructive to all but pyrophytic plants, I can now stop awaiting results and go to bed only hoping my dreams are not filled with visions of hot smoky ash or licky-licky goats because, really, noone likes a licky goat. Oh, and though I don't play the bagpipes I do play the banjo albeit poorly, but am happy to offer my 5-string prowess free of charge through a phone call or maybe even Skype, no probably not Skype brcause though I know what that word means I don't know how to do it, for the M. C. whenever it may occur.

Sorry about the fires!
Here in the Eastern US we await the destruction of Miami, and up along the coast.
Also flooding rains and wind, inland to Tennessee it looks like.
Tired of Crumpet, but not her fault I guess.

Crumpet makes me giggle. Thank you for the update. We will continue to wait for the ultimate result of the Measuring Ceremony. Here in New Brunswick the woods are very soggy and damp and sometimes foggy. I wish I could send you some of that for your fires.
