The saga that will not end!

Monday, January 25, 2010

I was looking around for good Valentine's Day ads and you will not believe what I ran across but another Sadda Rang and Lalla Rang ad! Jeez! These guys never quit! If you aren't familiar with Sadda and Lalla, I highly encourage you to go back to the original entry I just linked to. But to see why it is the saga that will never die, go look here and here for the follow ups.

Anyway, this ad comes just before the one in the final link:

DOD. - You are pretty. So are Sadda and Lalla Rang. Good friends stick together and all are gainers. BIB.

You know, I give up on trying to guess what's going on here. I do. But what I really, really wonder? I searched newspapers very randomly when I first started out on this project - a year here, a year there, there was no rhyme or reason. So it's pure coincidence that I discovered this series (and I should acknowledge my research assistant who made all this possible). Which means, doesn't it, that there could be long and mysterious correspondences like this all over the place! After all, aren't Washoe and Reese River equally complex? So what this says, I think, is that I could probably write an entire book just composed of these on-going correspondences. Which is both awesome and, well, daunting.

Anyway, believe it or not, this isn't the only ad I found online that's a follow up of one I posted awhile ago. You may recall this ad from Leo, who just about broke my heart. Now that I have access to more papers, I discovered a new letter and folks, it's not good:

M.P. - Darling pet wife, adieu, remember the past; keep it in thy loving heart. Be happy. Leo.

Sob! Excuse me while I go cry into my pillow.

The first one sounds like a threat! I wonder if something bad happened to the Rangs, and Bib is threatening to do the same thing to Dod?

Somehow I've always gotten the impression that Bib and Dod are frenemies. They're always joking but with this undertone of seriousness. I'm still going with the Rangs not being people but somehow all a code for an illegal gambling ring.
