Daredevils & Angels

Ran back and forth

Around the town square

Behind the eight ball

Struck while irons were hot

Bent over backwards

To please themselves

Aligned with new moons

Something was missing

Sure Fluffy, it was all fun and games

Until someone coughed up a fur ball

Could you find this much discomfort

anywhere else–at any price?

There was a lesson in there–somewhere


Catching Up–Again

I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.

A thousand mile journey may begin with a single step, but ends with piles of dirty laundry, unruly, overgrown lawns, luggage to store away.

That’s the necessary stuff–not including the extras, getting back into routines, catching up on neighborhood gossip.


Busiest vacation in recent  memory.

This Saturday morning, with my spouse off on a shopping venture with daughters and grand-daughter–I’ll be left to look after our collection of three dogs.

When someone moves into a new house, the work never seems to end.  Yesterday, it was moving in a dining room set.

Fall leaf colors fell short of expectations.  With the exception of this morning, it’s been too warm.  In the next two weeks, after I’m gone, leaves will be at peak coloration.

Next trip will be for Thanksgiving. That’s only a few weeks away.  Where has the year gone?
