When I was in Butte, M O N T A N A several weeks ago I picked up this cool old Butte/ mining ad. It has this term in it that I am unfamiliar with; I was hoping one of you all could help me figure out what it means....
Miners in the Butte copper mines used to say "tap 'er light" to advise against tapping too heavily and causing rockslides in the mines. Later, it was adopted as a substitute for "take it easy" or "goodbye."
I had no idea that Jamie Moyer and I share a resemblence; that's too funny! This wouldn't be a particularly good year to try and cash in on that, though probably, huh? When Kim (Quark) and I were at the Mariners game the other night, it was country western night. Each time a Mariner came up to bat their photo appeared with a really outlandish cowboy hat. Ichiro's was the funniest, it had a huge feather doo-dad with a small skull of some kind on it, they were hysterical.
Of course...they LOST...
I actually am kind of jealous of that old coot on the mule, in some regards, though. It would be just AWESOME to have a mule to carry all your stuff! And, as an added bonus, when you go up hills, you can just hold onto their tail and get a free ride!
