We said our last good bye – a rock and rhyme poem

Standing on a lonely hill Beneath a cloudy sky He always thought our love would grow Before we said our last good bye. . Didn’t know just what he did wrong Never got to ask me why Why must I be so doggone proud To make him say good bye . Will I ever get […]

Poetry in Motion

. Now here’s a classic. Actually it’s many classics rolled into one. Enjoy! . . . Well, I left Kentucky back in ’49 An’ went to Detroit workin’ on a ‘sembly line The first year they had me puttin’ wheels on cadillacs Every day I’d watch them beauties roll by And sometimes I’d hang my […]

Hey you! Stand up and don’t resign!

Who are TheMoroccans, or is it The Morockans? I don’t know, but their music sounds very much like The Waitresses (I Know What Boys Like) meet Cake (Building a Religion). This song has the kind of beat and lyrics that just stick in your head, which is precisely what is intended. . . . It’s […]

Beware the Ides of March

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears. Today marks the Ides of March, the day when Julius Caesar was stabbed to death in the Roman Senate led by Marcus Junius Brutus, Gaius Cassius Longinus and 60 other co-conspirators back in 44 BC. For my husband, this would be the start of a long night conversing […]

Fly, Lady, Fly

When I was just a girl, I had it in my head that I wanted to be in the Guinness Book of World Records for something. I probably was watching too much of the Brady Bunch or something. Just what would be my claim to fame? That didn’t matter as much as just being in […]

Sometimes I think that […]

Come aboard, we’re expecting you

With Valentine’s Day approaching, this little ditty entered my head. I spent many evenings in front of the TV watching this show growing up. I was delighted to hear from […]

In the mood to be in a good mood

How do you go about starting a national campaign to stop littering?

Dear members of Clean Up Jordan, How do you go about starting a national campaign to stop littering? That would be a major step in the right direction. This is one of the problems for Jordan that must start from the children up. I grew up in a very rural area in America where Smoky […]

Flashback. 1972. Grand Funk Railroad.

Before there were ipods, there was Walkman, first for cassettes, later for CDs. What did we do before that? A portable record player? Well, folks, if you were lucky enough to grow up in the 70s, you may have had a Close ‘n Play Phonograph. This is a Close ‘n Play Phonograph. When you close […]
