Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 521 (Generational Soap)

I used to have to cope-
With my grandmother
watching her soap.
.
It was at the same time
everyday-
And, believe me, nothing
ever got in the way.
.
Monday through Friday, is
how it went-
Supposedly, it was time
well spent.
.
On Fridays, was the day to
endure-
The climax, of the week,
it was much torture.
.
Couldn’t wait til Monday,
to come about-
To get back, to the story,
to get back, on route.
.
And, as I got older, I did the
same-
Keeping up with the soap opera
game.
.
All the characters came to be-
A part of my beloved family.
.
Another generation came along-
And, took the subject, on strong.
.
My daughter, has a special rule-
Don’t interfere with the soap
opera schedule.
.
But, alas, some of them are dying
out-
Leaving many folks, sad, is what
this is all about.
.
A generation of doing the very same
thing-
In this case, in the future, may no
longer have the same ring.
.
I used to have to cope-
With my grandmother
watching her soap.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Seventy Years Ago During The Christmas Season)

I was reading an article about how folks used to celebrate

Christmas back in the old days.  Seventy years ago things

were quite different.

.

Everyone still gathered round to listen to the radio. The

whole family tended to listen to the same music, and of

course there was no such thing as social media, in any

form or fashion.

.

To go to Grandmother’s was a tradition that had been

carried out for many generations. No one made giblet

gravy like she did. Even if you didn’t like her cooking you

didn’t have much of a choice, for she was the one doing

the cooking, and there were no take out places.

.

Everyone was still heavily involved in shopping for Christmas,

but they tended to wait a moment, until at least Thanksgiving

was over, and the bird had been picked clean. Later on Black

Friday appeared and now we cannot even wait for that moment.

.

Things have certainly changed over the years, but many things

also remain the same. We still put up a pine tree , decorate

it, and put presents under the tree. We cook a ham and enjoy

the sweets that are made for the season.

Of course, things did get easier for the elder generation. The ones

before that required hunting for meat and doing all the prep

work.  Everything was made by hand, with much creativity.

“Back in the old days-

Things were both alike and different, in many ways.”

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Perfect Duplication)

The man was a perfectionist and lived his life that way-
He made sure that everyone was miserable every single day.
.
Especially his family that he expected to be like him-
Not just a suggestion, not just a mere whim.
.
And when they weren’t perfect like him, well he gave them you know what-
Until they could hardly stand it, emotionally or in the gut.
.
The funny thing is that his children who couldn’t stand him one single bit-
As adults, became his duplicate, with full intentions and grit.
.
Another generation to pass on if you will-
No other way to describe it but downright evil.

.

The man was a perfectionist and lived his life that way-
He made sure that everyone was miserable every single day.
