MORE AFTERWARDS…

snapshot8750_005

… Old Mabel finds out more about Roostre in returning to the Blue Feather Table Room. A *lot* more. She didn’t uncover the crucial Q109-R110 link, which Robot Steve would tell her about later on in a dream. But she, for instance, learned the origin of the name Muff-Bermingham. She thought back to the opening in Corsica that allowed Snowmanster to escape a firey death at the hands of Jerome T. Newton. It was all starting to add up. To something.

EVEN MORE AFTERWARDS…

… “ARE YOU HAPPY?” Steve boomed down at her, still holding the poor clockwork ballerina in his metal claw. “I AM.”

Pope Gabriel Solo (Peter)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solsbury_Hill_%28song%29

“Solsbury Hill” is a song by English musician Peter Gabriel about a spiritual experience atop Solsbury Hill in Somerset, England. Gabriel wrote the song after his departure from the progressive rock band Genesis, of which he had been the lead singer since its inception. The song was his debut single. The single was a Top 20 hit in the UK and reached #68 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1977.[1] The song has often been used in film trailers for romantic comedies.[2]

Gabriel has said of the song’s meaning, “It’s about being prepared to lose what you have for what you might get… It’s about letting go.”[3] Former bandmate Tony Banks acknowledges that the song reflects Gabriel’s decision to break ties with Genesis, but it can be also applied in a broader sense.

Herman\

What sticks out from this list?

herman01

Yes, it’s obvious. The 2 Hermans of Craighead County, AR, one on a Herman topo map and one on a *Tru*mann topo map. Herman Munster, ol’ Flattop, is not a true man. He is a [composite] monster.

There are 2 Hermans in Winesap. This is also obviously referred to here. Is there more proof of this? Of course. We have Winesap in the same county, and one of only 2 in the country, the other being in Ohio. We have a Fisher, with another in the county below, almost directly south. Fisher-Herman. Fisherman. Obvious.

fisher01

But Herman also refers to Herman Park. But Herman Park refers to the 2 Hermans of Winesap. It’s a circle, or a triangle. Triangle within a circle.

Herman Park was built around Tile Creek, known to non-Tilists as mundane Yards Creek, spewing forth in an Appalachian Spring from Yards Mtn.

PEI’s Appalachian Spring

That’s Red Head soon to run into a Greenhead roadblock, quickly resolved. Greenhead is where the bird beat the bug. Hucka Doobie was a martin bird. Bird Wax instead of Bee Wax. Isn’t that right Hucka D.? Never mind. I know I figured it out. You transformed from a bee into a bird.

Hucka D.:

Almost.

bb:

Stay on course.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

What is the relationship between Green Stream and TILE Creek? Are they the same? Or, better, is Green Stream the *new* TILE Creek? Given that Red Head begins it all, and Red Head starts 4orrin1 [and the flow of an Appalachian stream] as seen above. Red Head transforming temporarily to Greenhead — and I’ve been thinking about this — is the confluence of the former with the Whitehead Crossing matrix. Assimilation. Whitehead Crossing is home for poor little orphaned Anne, even though she was suppose to be a boy (as Red Head is most logically Greenhead and visa versa, since it’s on Green Stream and Greenhead is on Red Brook instead). Then in the next synch carrcass, Frank’s Moving Mountain, we have the same dialog reappearing. But instead it’s Howl whose hair has turned an awful shade of green.

Hucka D.:

We’re getting off course.

bb:

Sorry. Could there even be significance to the poem Anne is reading at the beginning of the synch carrcass and film as one?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lady_of_Shalott

Stanzas five to eight describe the lady’s life. She suffers from a mysterious curse, and must continually weave images on her loom without ever looking directly out at the world. Instead, she looks into a mirror, which reflects the busy road and the people of Camelot that pass by her island.

Modern critics[citation needed] consider The Lady of Shalott to be representative of the dilemma that faces artists, writers, and musicians: to create work about and celebrate the world, or to enjoy the world by simply living in it.

TENNYSON-DICKEYVILLE.

Why Dickeyville?

dickeyville01

Hucka D.:

On course.

Hand, Heart

245e07a19f6f98868a4a4e1edc76efe2612b6f07c4026bafd874f8eb2ed13043

French (1 of 4) and Heart (1 of 1) in Fulton County, AR along with Elizabeth and nearby Hand, inundated by Norfolk Reservoir. Obviously points to above caption meme: Fred Sanford’s trademark fake heart attack where he puts his hand over his heart and calls to deceased wife Elizabeth that he’s coming to join her. But the just discovered presence of French adds a new twist. It seems it has something to do with Center County and its Middletown and Heart Circle and centering river which still doesn’t possess a mythological name. Part of the real name, however, includes the word French, and since French is so near Heart in already highlighted Fulton County, I think this points to middle/center/heart again in full. Is the mythological name, then, the Heart River? Or is this just another indication of middle, as in Middletown and Center County? Many Islands is also in Fulton County, and the “Heart River” contains many islands as it runs past the heart of Alexfin and the old dump area there.

I also recall that in August Baker Block “died” of a heart attack when Head of Perch merged with a painting in his room composed of many eyes, or many “i’s”.

Check out who owns the Elizabeth post office.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleveland_Rocks

The song was covered in 1997 by The Presidents of the United States of America as the opening theme of the television program The Drew Carey Show, a situation comedy set in Cleveland. It accompanied a lavish opening sequence in which the cast lip-synced the song while performing elaborate choreography. The band covered the entire song, but only part of it was used for the Drew Carey theme. At the beginning of the recording, Drew Carey (a native of Cleveland) can be heard saying “Hey!” and then laughing, and at the end shouting “Ohio!” to an echoing effect. The latter soundbite appears in both the theme song and the full-length version of the song, and is a direct remake of the original, which has a similar “Ohio!” soundbyte at the end. The song is a track on the album Cleveland Rocks! Music From The Drew Carey Show as well as on the band’s compilation Pure Frosting. This version is traditionally played after a home win for either the Cleveland Indians or Cleveland Cavaliers.[citation needed]

Hunter’s original version would later open a Drew Carey “mistakes” episode.

As we close in on Election Day in a race that may well be decided right here in Ohio, are you aware that no fewer than eight of America’s presidents have been Ohioans themselves? The only other state that can claim that many presidents is Virginia, and Virginia and Ohio like to bicker back and forth over which one owns the nickname, “The Mother of Presidents.”

Is Lafferty actually Faherty? There is no faher/ pop place in US. Is Faherty the successor or the chosen companion to Anderson?

Last night I looked for Lafferty novels for about 2 hours in the basement, remembering this:

andersonall

Then this morning found out about the similar sounded Faherty through Rapture, IN. Seems too odd to dismiss.

Does Lafferty/Faherty fit into the 12/13 *middle* of Winesap, a second source? Rev. Hartman, also with tested faith, is Cinderella match for Rev. Owen Keane?

—–
Barton (var=Anderson; see above) in Belmont County, OH
Lafferty (2 of 2) in Belmont County, OH
father/ (included in name Faherty): Maynard (var=Fathermac) in Belmont County, OH

All these are quite close together.

belmontohio
Lafferty, Maynard, Barton

belmontoh1898
5 lined up “B”s of *B*elmont County, all on *B* & O RR and just below above.

There’s Lafferty, Maynard, Barton again, also lined up as it were.

Another “Father Mac”…

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/rapt

adjective
1.
deeply engrossed or absorbed:
a rapt listener.
2.
transported with emotion; enraptured:
rapt with joy.
3.
showing or proceeding from rapture :
a rapt smile.
4.
carried off spiritually to another place, sphere of existence, etc.

We enter through “apt”, which leads to rapt which implied rapture per above definition. We begin, in others words, in Arkansas, the end (at least before the 3rd US tile, beginning in Maryland). We must show this up front. Then this…

rapture01

That’s the only rapt/ in the US, population place wise. There’s also only one rapt/ in Winesap, and it is also the only apt/, remembering this.

Craighead_ar
Apt just below Jonesboro

Rapture IN has a lone variant name of Winfield. It has come up in this list before, along with wick/ and also, perhaps meaningful now as well, Gate City VA.

winfield01b

Here’s the matching Winesap sentence again…

The piece of glass broken out at the corner of the window just nipped off the bare heel of the boy standing motionless and looking with rapt eyes into the face of the Christ.

So I suppose we could actually leave AR alone at the beginning of tile 3 and just introduce “rapt” through not “Apt” (AR) but Rapture as variant name of Winfield in IN. Cool — multiple ways to get to the same idea.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapture,_Indiana

Rapture is an unincorporated community in Posey County, Indiana, United States.[1] Rapture is located on Indiana State Road 68, between Poseyville and New Harmony.

The community was originally called “White’s Settlement”, and is one of the oldest communities in Posey County.[2] It was laid out in 1838 by John Cox, and became known as “Winfield”, and also “Bugtown”.[3] Cox Creek run through the community.[4]

CNN reported in 2011 that just one person lives in Rapture, where they own a home, rental property and airplane hangar.[5] The airplane landing strip is known as “Bugtown Airport”.[6]

Rapture was the setting for Terence Faherty’s 1999 novel The Ordained.[7]

Interesting. So I checked out Faherty’s The Ordained. Here’s a blurb from amazon.com…

In 1844, a religious sect founded a small town and held its breath for the Second Coming, when the faithful would be carried to heaven. One hundred and fifty years later, they’re still waiting. Then three people disappear–and some think the prophecy is finally coming true. Ex-seminarian turned sleuth Owen Keane thinks there’s a more corporeal explanation, something to do with a convicted killer’s parole hearing–because there’s nothing very divine about a cold body in a shallow grave. Martin’s Press.

http://books.google.com/books?id=4c4JBbi2g4kC&pg=PA54&lpg=PA54&dq=faherty+ordained&source=bl&ots=Sy04zfg_5A&sig=LMLwPRBmb8TBSAeOtrX3FVbmLeg&hl=en&sa=X&ei=ejpvVNuhGsSrgwTh7IKAAg&ved=0CFYQ6AEwCA#v=onepage&q=faherty%20ordained&f=false

http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-312-16958-9

Itinerant sleuth Owen Keane’s life has taken some abrupt turns in five previous novels (The Lost Keats, Deadstick, etc.), which have chronicled a believable life odyssey and delivered a handful of satisfying mysteries. He’s lost his religious faith, his girl and most of his more loving impulses. Now Owen is in Indiana to testify at the parole hearing for convicted killer Curtis Morell–to make sure the parole doesn’t happen. Owen runs into Morell’s daughter Krystal, the local doctor in Rapture, a town founded by a religious sect which, a century and a half ago, held its breath for a Second Coming. Waiting in vain, most of the faithful remained in Rapture, devoting their lives to making ornately artistic coffins. Now, after an older woman and then a young man vanish, followed by Krystal herself, many see signs of urgent summonses from God. A local woman even claims to see lights in the sky. But the Rapture cops and Steve Fallon, a DEA official, have a more earthly explanation for the lights: drug planes are descending on Rapture. Is there a new kind of ecstasy to be found in this sleepy town? Without credentials, Owen functions on the fringe of the investigation. He talks to the chilling Morell and gets shot down flying shotgun in a small plane. He takes to Krystal and clashes with Fallon. He scoffs at the notion that aliens are flashing lights but accepts the dignity with which the believers once waited for their miracle of deliverance. He’s an odd bird in an equally odd series, one that is consistently low-key, gently thoughtful and enlightening. (Dec.)
