Polly Beach

Rat Island, SC near Folly Molly Polly Beach and Charleston. Present centerpoint of budding, new mythology, bourne in the midst of unprecedented winter heat. This is where I hiked Sunday. This is where I doddled. Sand dunes.

I was just reading about the latter the same morning I found the name Rat I., SC, through researching earthquakes in connection with fracking. Rat. I., Alaska is site of one of the largest earthquakes in US history. Charleston, SC is the location of the largest US earthquake east of the Mississippi River in the last 200 years.

Triangle, thus:

up with maps! 03

03 counties named Marion with county seats also named Marion:

Marion County, Kansas
Marion County, Ohio
Marion County, South Carolina

We’ve spoken at length about Marion County, Ohio now and its Marion seat in the post before this one, concerning Warren G. Harding (and his nemesis and his wife who happens to be the daughter of the nemesis) and also S. Anderson. Does Marion County, Kansas give us more insights? Does the same named county in South Carolina? Actually the SC county is implied in the KS county. Let’s take a peep.

bb:

Why not?

Hucka D.:

Just because.

bb:

I’ve made some important strides in map research, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

What next?

Hucka D.:

Something else.

How about that, then? Teach/ comes up with only 1 hit in GNIRPS, and that’s right next to Willard (and Wallace and Tin City) in North Carolina, Hucka D. Hucka? Probably went back to bed (lucky him). I think it has to represent “Teacher”, or, more specific, Kate Swift. Willard heads into the Beach Grove to think about her. Rev. Hartman is also dwelling on her the same day, his Achilles heel. Heal.

Chicago White Stockings players:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Chicago_White_Stockings_players

Chicago White Sox players (White Sox were called White Stockings in their first several years of existence, or about 1901-1903):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Chicago_White_Sox_players

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

One of the American League’s eight charter franchises, the Chicago team was established as a major league baseball club in 1900. The club was originally called the Chicago White Stockings, after the nickname abandoned by the Cubs, and the name was soon shortened to Chicago White Sox, believed to have been because the paper would shorten it to Sox in the headlines. At this time, the team played their home games at South Side Park. In 1910, the team moved into historic Comiskey Park, which they would inhabit for more than eight decades.

Black Sox scandal involving White Stockings>White Sox players, apparently already coded into GNIRPS [Pennsylvania]:

The 1919 World Series, however, was marred by the Black Sox Scandal, in which several prominent members of the White Sox (including Cicotte and [Shoeless Joe] Jackson) were accused of conspiring with gamblers to lose games purposefully.

player/: 2 of 2 (and pertaining to baseball as well):

Upon the baseball field Joe Welling stood by first base, his whole body quivering with excitement. In spite of themselves all the players watched him closely. The opposing pitcher became confused.

“Now! Now! Now! Now!” shouted the excited man. “Watch me! Watch me! Watch my fingers! Watch my hands! Watch my feet! Watch my eyes! Let’s work together here! Watch me! In me you see all the movements of the game! Work with me! Work with me! Watch me! Watch me! Watch me!”

With runners of the Winesburg team on bases, Joe Welling became as one inspired. Before they knew what had come over them, the base runners were watching the man, edging off the bases, advancing, retreating, held as by an invisible cord. The players of the opposing team also watched Joe. They were fascinated. For a moment they watched and then, as though to break a spell that hung over them, they began hurling the ball wildly about, and amid a series of fierce animal-like cries from the coach, the runners of the Winesburg team scampered home.

Also this (concerning shoeless and stockings, and heels again):

shoel/: 1 of 1:

Elmer was putting new shoelaces in his shoes. They did not go in readily and he had to take the shoes off. With the shoes in his hand he sat looking at a large hole in the heel of one of his stockings.

heel: 3 of 3:

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.

Will Henderson, who had on a light overcoat and no overshoes, kicked the heel of his left foot with the toe of the right.

With the shoes in his hand he sat looking at a large hole in the heel of one of his stockings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaRue,_Ohio

LaRue has the distinction of being the smallest town to ever have an NFL franchise. In the early 1920s LaRue was home to famous athlete Jim Thorpe, who coached and played for the Oorang Indians football team in 1922–1923.

Notable residents

Dr. Charles E. Sawyer – a homeopathic physician who is blamed for giving a false diagnosis of U.S. President Warren G. Harding that led to Harding’s premature death, practiced medicine in LaRue.

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

Until 2005, most of Thorpe’s biographers were unaware of his basketball career[46] until a ticket discovered in an old book that year documented his career in basketball. By 1926, he was the main feature of the “World Famous Indians” of LaRue which sponsored traveling football, baseball and basketball teams. “Jim Thorpe and His World-Famous Indians” barnstormed for at least two years (1927–28) in parts of New York and Pennsylvania as well as Marion, Ohio. Although pictures of Thorpe in his WFI basketball uniform were printed on postcards and published in newspapers, this period of his life was not well documented.

Collagesity Views 01

Baker Bloch sits at the edge of Drunk Man’s Ridge, looking toward what seems to be a continuation of the ridge past the pool in the depression just in front of him. At the edge of this continuation, if that’s what it is, appears the Galbraith Cutout, recently also mentioned here. She’s actually at one end of an official Collagesity walking lane called High Way, with the other end marked by High Bridge.

Snapshot1083_003

Would this still be considered a natural ridge? Why was the pond dug out in the middle of it, then?

Snapshot1083_005

Snapshot1083_009

Closeup of the Galbraith cutout and her winged feet. Perhaps she is a type of bird spirit.

Snapshot1083_010

From this angle, the pool is completely covered by the bordering brown cypress. Perhaps curiously, Galbraith’s water container and accompanying pouch (which also has the appearance of a dreamcatcher) are almost the exact same colors as the cypress + pool — hard to even separate them out visually here.

Snapshot1083_011

A cardinal bird roosts on one of the several Drunk Man’s Ridge rocks, twin to the one at the falls we’ll be looking at in detail a little later. It has an east-west alignment with the similarly red colored statue at the very peak of the ridge (“aim high” by Dave Koi).

Snapshot1083_017

And although I didn’t consciously plan it, this same statue lies directly north of another bird, a pigeon walking the edge of a BOB gallery railing.

Snapshot1083_019

A 7 prim freebie pool graces the western entrance to Collagesity proper.

Snapshot1083_021

Looking past the pool and trees into territory south of Collagesity. I use to own about all of it at one time or another.

Snapshot1083_023

A large cross use to exist on this knoll at Noru, 62, 135, 145. Speculation had it that the grave was Peter SoSo’s or perhaps the related Peter the Great’s or Peter the Good’s. Maybe even all of ’em. Does the grave site still apply?

Snapshot1083_025

Cardinal near North, VA. Only other North: SC, and with Norway, Sweden, Denmark and even a Finland. North is one of the 4 cardinal directions. North = Nordic (aliens).
