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.

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.

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.”

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.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 659 (The Pumpkin Patch)

The idea came to hatch-

That we had to visit the pumpkin patch.

.

It was just a small drive-

And, then all of a sudden the scenery

came alive.

.

The vines were so green-

Amongst the orange pumpkins, that

were seen.

.

Big ones and small ones, and some

in between-

Some were huge, and of course, some

were lean.

.

To choose, was a hard thing to do-

As we continued to walk, as we continued

through.

.

And, then all of a sudden we saw the perfect

one-

We snapped it off the vine, we were finally

through.

.

Sad to leave, though, for it had been so much fun-

Back through the field, to pay, and it would all be

done.

.

We smiled as we drove away-

With the perfect pumpkin, for Halloween Day.

.

The idea came to hatch-

That we had to visit the pumpkin patch.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose #662 (The Candy Bowl Was Overflowing)

The candy bowl was overflowing-

As a matter of fact, it was glowing.

.

And then the doorbell rang, and it

began to get low-

For there were so many trick or treaters

on the go.

.

A handful here and a handful there-

Little hands, with bags were everywhere.

.

Dressed in costume from pumpkins to

the princess-

All the children in the neighborhood were

dressed in their Halloween best.

.

Before long the candy bowl was empty-

Not a piece left was there to be.

.

Had to hurry and fill it up once again-

For the doorbell was still ringing more now

than then.

.

The candy bowl was overflowing-

As a matter of fact it was glowing.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (05) Working To Keep That Candy Bowl Full

 

The candy bowl was full when I heard the first knock-

It was still early, as I looked at the clock.

.

It was Halloween night and as the children came-

The contents of the candy bowl were never again the same.

.

I filled it up over and over again to keep it topped-

And, had to keep it up earnestly as the traffic never stopped.

.

They came by the droves and were all so cute-

The idea to run out of candy could never be in dispute.

.

The candy bowl was full when I heard the first knock-

It was still early, as I looked at the clock.
