Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 978 (To Give A Quiet Holler)

We hollered across the plain-

With the prospect, of local information, to gain.

.

We waited, for word, by pony express-

From loved ones, to a specific address.

.

Snail mail eventually took its place-

Back then, it was considered letters delivered in haste.

.

And, then came the telephone-

With one person navigating, letting your personal

business, to the whole town be readily known.

.

The party line was certainly a go-getter-

Sharing a line, with just a few folks was a trend setter.

.

To remember the days, when we got a call-

And, had to stand, in the corner, and talk on the phone,

that was attached to the wall.

.

Pay phones helped to ease the load-

When we traveled elsewhere, on the road.

.

Cordless became the rule-

To talk out in the yard, became the normal cool.

.

The cell took its place in line-

Conversation everywhere is what we could find.

.

And, now when we holler at that special friend-

Instant messaging or a text is what we send.

.

Simple words, across the screen-

No vocals involved, just the message seen.

.

We hollered across the plain-

With the prospect, of local information, to gain.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 796 (Frog Time)

The frogs came out-

Even, in the midst, of a drought.

.

There wasn’t just one, it was like

a crowd-

And, oh, my goodness, they did

croak loud.

.

They generally like the rain-

But, there was none on the plain.

.

So, they came out anyway-

They just couldn’t wait another day.

.

To have the will, to make as much

noise, as they could-

In a bush, near a tree, in the wood.

.

The frogs came out-

Even, in the midst, of a drought.

Three things to tell the grandkids (2007)

1. We used to hang the clothes out to dry.
2. We used to watch 8 track tapes.
3. The phone we used, was just that, a plain old phone.
======================================
Nowadays it includes everything except for the kitchen sink-
But it the old days it was used just for a person to person conversation link.

Three That Happen When You Don’t Get Much Sleep (2012)

1. You make mistakes.

2. You don’t feel good.

Not to be rude-

But, plain and flat, you do not project

a good mood.
