Quote of The Day

Thursday, November 16, 2017


A little poem written in about five
minutes one late evening while
deep in thought!

 The egg  has broken
discussion now open
The yolk of it all
will cause many to fall

waiting in the wings
to see who sings
 held for years deep within
waiting for the conversation to begin
Substance abuse, food as drugs
pain suppressed corked with plugs
 Civil words never safe
trust eroded, an internal chaff
 On the edge years and years
waiting until someone hears

shake in your boots to be exposed
As they divulge, to gain repose!

Someone really knows how to have fun!!

These two getting into the 
spirit with their traditional 
first peppermint mocha
together to kick off 
the season! 

Anyone feeling the Christmas Spirit yet?

We like to enjoy the lights
music and colours of the season longer than most!

Great post, Sherrie. I loved your photo of the "kids" in their Christmas gear. Christmas doesn't rev up here till after Thanksgiving (4th Thursday of November). And as for the printer, no, there are zero printers to choose from on the laptop. I have effectively disconnected this computer from the wireless printer. The desktop has a notation that the printer is offline. I think I may have changed the wifi setting for computers. At least the desktop listing still includes the printer, but has no indication of how to get it back online.

What an unusual poem, Giggles, I'd really like to have a chat with you on the subject.
I love your imaginary people, you have given them life.
It is interesting to speculate on the dynamics of each threesome. In the first they don't seem at ease with one another, maybe they are strangers waiting at a bus stop. In the second, I think they are friends, maybe going on a shopping trip, although I think the third lady has suddenly thought she has left the iron on.
Fun to see the photo of Beardo.
We'll start to get into the Christmas spirit very soon!

Yes to the poem. The yolk of it all will cause many to fall...shake in your boots to be exposed. While these words can be applied to any of us as everyone hides some secret, my mind immediately went to news of prominent Americna men and their conduct, affecting women for generations. However you intended it - well said.
