……….It has been a long winter……


The sheen of green across my lawn calms the mind and clears the soul and helps to fill the gaping hole left when life seemed to increasingly sour, and only now has the summer sun that feeds the grass begun to lift my sagging spirits. Thunderstorms that soaked my mind till I felt I would drown now raise my thoughts along with the flowers that dot the space that I like to call my backyard park. The sky is soaking up the blue of my troubled emotions, and the clouds that float there now brighten my day instead of storming my moods. Soon, I hope, the weather will calm and the sky will shine with stars all through the night and my nightmares change to dreams!

…………..Entitlement……………


Walking barefoot on a freshly groomed lawn with the tiny blades tickling my feet; the welcoming call of my neighbor from across the street; the blooming bliss of freshly coiffed flowers; instill and infuse the soul with a sense of God-given power; of joy and the intense sense of peace and content; until back in the security of my living room; I make the mistake of watching the news.

…………….A Night long coming!…….


The plain with the rain is mostly in Spain! I always had problems remembering those quaint folk sayings. Do not put all your baskets in one egg! I believe this comment was intended to make sure that an earned penny was never lost to a learned politician! My favorite may be a bush in the hand is worth two birds! , but one must find someone with two birds who needs a bush! If I had heard that so many times, I would probably have a nickle! Any Loose but way, is one of my favorite East Clintwood movies, along with The joselaw  out of wales. Tickleit or licket is one of my favorite laws in MO. No arm of the long law will be able to resist it! Hopefully I will not be driving!  😉
