That Dang Glue

Remember the good ole days when we all used Elmer’s glue?  That white liquid that took forever to dry, but washed off with soap and water. Of course, being water-soluble, Elmer’s, was not always a perfect choice for certain things.  Thinking this is why some smart dudes or dudettes came up with the new-fangled thang called Super Glue.  One thang for sure, they got that dang name right, that glue is definitely, Super.  When you apply to dumaflotches you want to glue together, you best have those pieces lined up, because you have only seconds to get it right. Do not use too much of...

Bouncing Golden Curls

Bouncing Golden Curls Bouncing golden curls running through the grass, Singing, dancing, spinning, having just a touch of sass. Bouncing golden curls looking to the sky, Stopping, smiling, pointing, saying Angels are flying by. Bouncing golden curls kneeling on one knee, Smelling, touching, picking, giving wildflowers to you and me. Bouncing golden curls although only three, Living, loving, caring, showing God’s love for all to see. Lou January 24,...

One of Those Days

We all have them, those days that seem to blow our minds with the unbelievable things that happen. Getting up in the morning, you think the day will be uneventful.  Suddenly out of nowhere, you find yourself in some ridiculous twilight zone.   Stuff starts happening that you know other people are not going to believe, tell anyone about, or much less write down then share.  Of course, if you are a writer of humor, love to laugh at yourself, you’re going to write about it.  So here I sit at the computer telling about my twilight zone day. The day started reasonably well.  It was a...

Mr. Kitty Kat

Nothing was extraordinary about that day.  It was just another hot, dry summer day in late May. Deep in my thoughts, I walked out of the front door of my home.  The detached garage had been converted into a game room many years back. I have typed all of my blogs and books in this room. As I approached the front door to the game room, a cat came running from the left side of the building.  The stray feline was loudly crying as it ran closer towards me. A little frightened at the cat’s behavior, but concerned; I stood without moving. To me, the cries of the stray cat sounded more...

Porches & Asp Sting

The trailer house was ready to go, but Frank and I realized that it needed airing out with all of the windows and doors open. A make-your-eyes-water preservative, if I remember right formaldehyde, used on the paneling inside the trailer made the whole house stink, so even though we were ready to move in, we aired it out for several days. The trailer home had two entries, the back door, and the front door. The only way to enter the trailer doors were with some wooden four-step moveable steps which did not have handrails. Frank and I knew that as soon as possible, we needed to build some real...
