Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Solo Ice Cream)

While waiting in line at the bank, I overheard two women

 

discussing a little ice cream machine. Rock salt is what you

 

put in it and then you had to stir it for a long time. One woman

 

said that she would be too lazy to stir it for a long time, and the

 

other one said that is why you invite friends over.

 

The conversation concluded with the thought that there would

 

not be enough ice cream for the people invited over to stir.

 

 

The solution was easy enough as it was stated that was the time

 

for the invited company to go home. Problem solved.

“A cold cold scheme-
To create and eat homemade ice cream”.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (The Original Shakers)

The European Shakers made their way-

To America in 1774 back in the day.

.

For freedom of religion and movement-

Via founder Mother Ann Lee, along the Hudson

River on New York is where they went.

.

With any problems of frontier life they did better fare-

As they ate healthy, were clean , and practiced good healthcare.

.

With decoration being offensive to God they created their

very own furniture-

That contained simplicity and beauty that to this day

still does endure.

.

They expanded to New England, New

York, Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio-

Eventually dying out, with their furniture

giving way for their history to grow.

.

A small second order of Shakers today in Sabbathday Lake, Maine-

Keepers of the faith with supporting the heritage to gain.

Treats not always throughout the year handy.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Otter Christmas Morning)

The otters woke up Christmas Day-

And the gift opening immediately got underway.

.

For this event they had waited all year long-

And now it was here coming on strong.

.

It began late last night-

When not a sound was made and an otter was not in sight.

.

For they all knew that Santa Claus was coming-

And many gifts is what he would bring.

.

There would be no ifs, ands, or buts-

For all of their eyes had to be shut.

.

Mama otter had made Santa a special cake-

One that Santa loves for goodness sake.

.

And then they poured some milk in a glass-

All set now with a napkin to readily amass.

.

Santa came somewhere during the night-

Actually before the morning light.

And that is where the otter’s story began-

It happened all along the river, all over the land.

And the gift opening immediately got underway.

Mike was working in the back of the store-
Putting Christmas trees together on the floor.

Piece by piece, they began to form as a tree-
A happy finished product this was going to be.
.
As the day went on the amount of trees began to grow-
They flourished in detail, row by row.
.
And Mike’s looks began to change-
His beard grew and his clothing was re-arranged.
.
Mike was beginning to look like he lived among these trees-
With nature amongst the animals, amongst the slight breeze.
.
The stars twinkled and touched the tree tops-
This was a natural decoration with no halts or stops.
.
The put together trees turned into a wonderful forest-
Thanks to Mike who put them together and you know the rest.
.
The store disappeared and nature took over for a good reason-
As for the end of the year, this is the most important season.

Letter To The Editor (A Step Back Into Time)

I decided that 2018 was going to be a pleasant year

beginning now. My first step was to make

things fun and simple, so I began my adventure with

having my picture taken with Santa Claus.

 

I spotted him and thought why not? It had been years

since I had done such a thing. As I watched the young

ones telling him what they wanted, I had to think

about my choices.

 

He ended up taking a break and when he passed by I

got to stand next to him. He didn’t ask me what I wanted

and I never got around to telling him, but as we both

smiled it was obvious that I had already gotten what I

wanted.

 

A picture with Santa Claus. A step back into time, and

a good moment to experience. All at one shot. I would

say that was a good beginning.

 

“This the season-

To enjoy it all for a good reason.”

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving

With many good things ahead in store.

.
So many things to be thankful for-
With many good things ahead in store.

Letter To The Editor: Thanksgiving Dinner Way Back When

In history was a winner.

.
Not just a whim-
But thankful eating between Wampanoag and Pilgrim.

Local veggies and fruits as best as able-
Set this special table.

Highlighted by fish and shellfish caught near-
Added to Wampanoag gift of five deer.

An annual American family sensation.

To The Editor (Shopping For Manners)

It has always been the case to expect manners when you are

shopping. The employees should greet the customers and take

care of those who are shopping.

 

The other day I came across another kind of scenario that

customers expect. The employees being treated as human

beings. I was a couple of rows away when a boss

figure talked very rudely to their employee. She talked

loudly and without restraint.

 

When it was over I heard several customers on the row

in front of me react to this situation.

They complained loudly how rude that they thought

it was and that they better not see that again.

 

Lucky for this boss, for she had gone out of sight and did

not hear the complaints about her. Those kind of

bosses would not appreciate this type of feedback.

 

“Employees not to miss-

A true part of that customer service”

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Employees Count Too)

The department store opened and all was swell-
This store treated all of the employees well.
.
The products were all shiny and in their place-
Things were all organized in their case.
.
The customers were shopping in great style-
Greeted with a warm captive smile.
.
But something happened that spoiled the moment-
One of the stores’ bosses was a big overspent.
.
Talking really rude to their employee on the floor-
The shoppers immediately headed towards the door.
.
Customers expect great customer service of course-
But to see the employees also respected in full force.
.
The boss needed to take a class-
To learn to control her temper with respectful
leadership to amass.
.
The department store opened and all was swell-
This store treated all of the employees well.

Three To Wonder

1. Why?
2. How?
3. What?
==============
The Twitter reply perk-
At this time doesn’t seem to work.

Three Ways To Deter Gun Violence

1. Buy more guns.
2. Buy bullet proof pads in Florida for student backpacks.
3. Let the mentally ill have their guns.
========================
It was a sensation-
Back in Feb. when Trump rolled
back (quietly and without “regular” fanfare)
that mental illness safeguard regulation.

P.S. And as usual hope that the next occasion does

not bring grief to your family.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Grandmother’s Cooking)

Grandma is gone and I miss her so-
But the memories of her continue to grow.
.
What exactly was all of the buzz?
Well she accepted me exactly as I was.
.
During the holidays I can feel her around-
As she was always in the kitchen cooking bound.
.
The turkey would be perfect and the dressing was yum-
She would stay at this task all day long in full hum.
.
And when it came time for the blessing she would cry-
And being younger I never did know why.
.
It was because she remembered her childhood with
her own grandmother-
And missed her also like no other.
.
Now that I am older and my grandmother has gone
to Heaven-
I too cry to remember the love, to remember when.
.
Looking at my grandchildren I would hope that they
would feel the love for me too-
To know that generations from now the love
would continue to accrue.
.
Thank you grandmother for enriching my life-
Giving me strength To enjoy and day and fight the strife.

3. Clock put back one hour.
====================
Life to re-arrange-
With the time change.

Letter To The Editor (Butter And Gas)

The other day I came across a lyric in a song that was amusing.

It was simple and stated it just like it could be.

The singer sang I’ve got gas in my truck and butter for my biscuit.

It sounded so cute, but then on the other hand it sends a strong

message.

 

Life can feel just right with a minimum of the things. It doesn’t have

to take a lot to get to that moment. Some of us are never satisfied

with no matter how much we spend, while others are satisfied with

the basic.

 

We cannot get by without that gas in the truck, we all know that. It’s

hard to get around like that, but then that butter for the biscuit is

another matter.

 

I once was having dinner at a friend’s house and they had run out of

butter. In the midst making mac and cheese we just opted to do

without the butter. Adding a bit more milk it was not quite the same but

it was edible.

 

It would have been so much the better with the butter, but we managed.

To hear those lyrics again it makes me appreciate the little things. That is

the way that life should be.

 

“Simple things to amass-

Tasty butter and gas.”

Three For A Parade

Three For Prep Later In Month

1. Turkey shopping.
2. Pie recipes out.

==================
The kind to spend-
A bit of time in the oven.

No more no less-
Watching a WH press conference.

Three To Untangle

1. Christmas lights.

3. Money laundering.
============
To find the correct angle-
To untie, to un-wrangle.

Letter To The Editor (To Fall Forward Once Again)

Every year we do the same thing. In the spring

we move forward, and in the Autumn we fall

back. Of course I am talking about that hour

that we play with yearly.

 

On Sunday November 5th, if we don’t participate,

we will suddenly become an hour early.

 

The same scenario happens on the move

forward one. Only difference is that we end up

being an hour late.

 

It is better to be early than to be late, but most

of us simply like being on time.

 

“An hour back to creep-

Giving us that extra time to sleep.”

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Otter Shadow Relations)

It was an otter moon filled night-
No reason to feel any fright.
Except for the fact that it was Halloween-
And strange things had been seen.
.
A shadow had appeared that they did not know-
Any closer they just simply would not go.
But they kept their distance and were afraid-
To find out what it was the plans were laid.
.
The plan began to set a trap-
To catch the shadow when it was in a a nap.
For they could not think about it being awake-
It was too scary for goodness sake.
.
They waited until the middle of the night-
At a time when all could be filled with fright.
But since they were going to solve their problem-
They could get by easy as a whim.
.
In the corner the shadow did snore-
They waited and it snored some more.
They then lit up the den and then they saw-
Something that filled them with awe.
.
It was their cousin who for a while hadn’t been around-
And had slinked around without making a sound.
So they just let the shadow go back to sleep-
All had much relaxed shut eye without a peep.

.

It was an otter moon filled night-
No reason to feel any fright.
Except for the fact that it was Halloween-
And strange things had been seen.
