Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 950 (To Fool For The Day)

We used to get the ketchup out-

To do a pretend cut, without a doubt.

.

And, we’d make up stuff-

To make a moment rough.

.

We would tell a quick lie or two-

Just to get by, just to get through.

.

To shock someone with a very strange tale-

For April Fools Day, without fail.

.

Better than a trick or treat-

To make someone drop their jaw, to jump

out of their seat.

.

We used to get the ketchup out-

To do a pretend cut, without a doubt.

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

house.

 

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

too.

 

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.”

Going Back Home (2001)

I don’t know how many times i’ve watched the movie “The Trip to Bountiful” starring Geraldine Page.
She plays an elderly lady who runs away from her son’s home, where she resides, in order to return to her childhood home.

Obviously we’d all like to go home, back to a time when things were simple and the days were long.
Not a worry in the world did we have. It’s funny because things do not always stay the same but in our minds they do.

One can see an elderly relative sitting on a front porch waiting to greet you even though they may no longer be here on this earth
and their place of residence may have been torn down or replaced. That’s the way our memory works. we store images in our minds that
will serve us for the rest of our days.

As Geraldine Page finally makes it to her childhood home, surrounded by a small town that is desolate, she see that the house is falling
apart and unlivable but her heart is still filled with joy. to her the ruins of her childhood home still represent what she had been looking for.

The smell of the air and the looks of a piece of ground that still held so many wonderful childhood memories for her.

One can still go home even if it no longer exists, for it’s the memories that take us there! They’re stored in our minds and all we have to
do is reach inside and bring them out whenever we feel the need.

“One’s own memory is the place to roam-
If one has the desire to go back home!”

THREE THINGS THAT I THINK OF WHEN I HEAR THE TUNE 2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY (2003)

1. The old movie and the re-release.

2. The Golf Channel’s new attention getter.

3. Elvis is coming out and has not left the building.

Some things come and some things go-
And others remind us of things that we used to know!

Wednesday Yarn (Pie Tin)

I cannot remember when it began but I just love to

eat my lunch out of a pie tin. I’ve never been camping,

so it didn’t come from there, but I use one on a daily

basis.

 

It’s funny how some things can become your favorite things

and then someone else might look at it differently. One day

I fixed my grandson a sandwich and put it on the pie tin.

He looked at me, he looked at the plate and he finally had

to ask as to why did I put his sandwich on that plate.

 

I had to explain to him that it was my favorite thing to eat

off of and that I was not being weird by serving

his sandwich on one. I had a choice of a paper towel, a

paper plate or even a regular dish plate. After I explained

that to him he took it in good stride. Bless his little heart.

“Favorites to some-

For others might seem unusual or dumb.”
