Three That Always Believe That You Didn’t Do What You Are Accused Of Doing (2010)

1. Your mother.

2. Your father.

3. Your highly paid lawyer.



Doesn’t always come free.



Three Above While Reading (2014)

1. Sun.
2. Light bulb.
3. Stars.
Setting just right-
Sometimes highlighted also by moonlight.


Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 608 (Two Moons)

They say that a long time ago-
The moon was different than the
one that we presently know.
For two moons crashed and made
it so much the better-
One side smooth and the other
a mountain and crater getter.
If that was true-
Double moon songs could acrue.
To treat them as two different sides-
Doubled songs filled with pride.
Instead of “Bad Moon Rising”-
It could be “Double Bad Moon Sizing”.
Instead of “Buicks to the Moon”, it
could be-
“A Caravan of Buicks to the Moon”,
we could see.
Instead of “This Side of the Moon”, we’d
rather say-
“This and That “Other” Side of the Moon”, in a
complete way.
Instead of “Sugar Moon”, please-
“Sugar Moon Flipped Over With Additional Cheese”.
Instead of “Where is the Moon?” Lets give a call-
“Look behind to Find the Other Moon”, without stall.
Instead of “Blue Moon”-
“On the Other Side You’ll Find A Happy Tune”.
They say that a long time ago-
The moon was different than the
one that we presently know.



Wednesday Yarn (The Waltons)

Whenever I get a chance I love to watch

The Waltons. It’s not just the adventures

that they involve themselves in, a lot of

times it is that sitting down to that dinner

table that interests me.


The long wooden table with the fresh table

cloth takes care of this family with room

left for a guest.


It seems like it would take an awful lot of

food and cooking to feed this family on

Walton’s Mountain, but show after show

they manage to do just that.


Grandma Walton has been seen picking the

green beans, Mama works out in the garden,

and one of the children tends to the chicken



One thing that is apparent is that there is

always a plate of bread on the table and you

hear someone say pass that butter.

Surely it is real butter. You know the kind

that was churned on the porch. One can

imagine Grandma Walton baking that

bread and then the family spreading on

that delicious butter. Makes a good filler



The other night the family had company,

and right after dinner they went outside

to enjoy their dessert. Cut pieces of water-

melon were shared by all.


As I said before it took a lot of food and

cooking to feed this family, but they

worked as a team and shared the burden.

There were no fast food places to ease

this burden. It was just a matter of fact.


Simple with hard work, but what a joy-

When the day ended and we heard good

night John Boy.”
