A collection of thoughts and comments on various topics.
This is a place for me to capture thoughts, ideas, snippets of this and bits of that, that don't seem to lend themselves to one of the more traditional item types.

I don't know what sparked the desire to track this down, but it was one of my favorite MasterCard commercials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MONUmBB6PsM

43 years ago today, I asked Him if I could be His child. I would love to say that, since then, I've always behaved in a manner sure to please Him. However, that would be one of the bigger fibs you've ever come across. My failures notwithstanding, I've never doubted my relationship with Him. Thank you, Father. *Cross1*

A Seasonal Turn

Pale
sun
and white
blanket mark
the annual trek
from faded brown to verdant green.

Venturesome Youth


The young man's heart was racing as he drove,
his mind unsure which wording would be best
to guarantee a drive-in movie date
and garner a sweet kiss (Please, kindly Fate!).
His tongue in knots he makes his interest known,
and with her "Yes!" is certain Grace has shown.

I went on Active Duty with the U.S. Army on this date in 1973. Forty-six years ago. Un-freaking-believable.

I went for a walk this morning. As I passed a restaurant, I saw that one of their signs advertised a "Cajun Boil". I have no idea how they get away with advertising apparent cannibalism. However, the abandoned cars with Louisiana tags hidden behind the building now make a lot more sense.

The Gift


Our first Christmas tree, a table-top tree
had tinsel and ornaments small.
Each one set in place at deliberate pace.
I watched my love work from the hall.

Each year something new, as our family grew,
little pictures and drawings from school.
Smiling faces all 'round, hearts with love still abound,
a passion the years cannot cool.

This Christmas we'll see, just what kind of tree
will make its way into our home.
No wreath will she place, no smile on her face:
She is gone, and I am alone.

An 8-line triolet for today's entry, based on an image prompt [2186816]


For Freedom's Sake

You left your home for Freedom's sake,
Your service faithful, honor-filled.
With burdened heart and much at stake,
You left your home for Freedom's sake.
So, even though some cried, "Mistake!"
And raged against the blood we'd spilled,
You left your home for Freedom's sake.
Your service faithful, honor-filled.

Killer Cuisine

Bred to hunt mice,
oddball Spice likes
brown rice with meat.
