A Few Wednesday Words

Just two days ago, the new local supermarket, was just a concrete slab. Today, Wednesday, there are walls standing. Interesting to watch construction progress, from the YMCA, across the street.

My furniture upholstery project seems to be an awesome success. Faded areas returned to original color. Have to admit, I didn’t feel confident as to results.

It’s pumpkin spice everything season–once again. Do you have special plans? Just like the Holiday Season, it starts earlier every year.

I like pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake. Don’t care to have everything pumpkin spiced. Pumpkin spice pet foods? Do you think Fido or Fluffy really care?

More Tales From New Oyster Cloister

Not much good news lately. There are other headlines, however. Here are a few.

  • Where Gordon Ramsay will never eat.
  • Mysterious uranium particles found in Alaska
  • Amy Schumer wed secretly
  • Most Americans were in debt
  • Why most freezers didn’t have lights
  • Losing an aircraft engine in flight was no big deal
  • Sixteen vacation ideas for introverts
  • Still more cute toddler and pet pictures

The author reserves the right to complain about anything, and everything at any given moment.  There were no implications of interest, admissions of guilt, in any of the above topics.

Us Vs. Them

Passwords, crossroads, thresholds
Odorless, colorless, worthless
Sentimental old fools
Set in their ways
Opinionated, tactless
Forgot passwords
Couldn’t be swayed
Made no sense
Made no sense at all
Orbiting Tesla roadster
Another piece of space junk
Expensive designer genes
Semantics–wars with words
QWERTY–UIOP for sure

Not Exactly New News

It’s not polite to speak ill of the departed. Natalie Wood’s death was controversial at that time.

The issue of whether or not it was accidental is not, new news.

Why it is being brought up now has me baffled.

On another subject, the three major television networks, failing to find any new programming ideas, are rebooting old series.

Rosanne, will come back on ABC. CBS brought back Hawaii 5-O, MacGyver; will bring back Cagney and Lacey, and Magnum PI.

Will they be successful?  Hawaii 5-O and MacGyver seem to be doing well.  I miss the scowling characterization portrayed by Jack Lord in the original series.

What other expended TV series could be reincarnated?  …Leave It To Beaver, Bewitched, Barnaby Jones, Moonlighting?

I happened to like Moonlighting–the theme song was great, the tension between Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard made the show.  I didn’t care for the way Seinfeld ended, either.

 

What a Difference a Day Made

Clicked on click bait
Searched for–
Something earthshaking
Something brilliant
Something profound
Found suggestions already knew
Wasted time watching people
with whom I had nothing in common
that didn’t care a whit about
anything, but themselves
Life is a continual series
Of turns–sometimes
In wrong directions

Standing In a Stream (Of Consciousness)

Pale skin
Weak sunlight
Clocks without hands
Ships without rudders
Burgers without buns
Fun, beyond legal limits
Chicken Littles, peanut brittle
Log in, or get out?
Minor quibbles, put out to see
Oh, for the love of pancakes
Word of the year, word of the yawn?
Deflated Santas, compressors hissed no longer
Why? Because the congeniality well dried up
Have another cocktail weenie
