Goo foffing time

Hi everyone,

Seems it’s time again. I’m going to be out of pocket for a while. A bit of goo foffing is a good thing now and then.


Muses seeking summer jobs

Hi everyone,

It’s time again to choose a word of the month. During summer doldrums, muse unemployment skyrockets. In order to focus public attention on their sad plight, I’ve chosen the word of the month for July to be MUSE.

I only hope it isn’t too late to save them from wrinkling away on the Old Muse Home front porch, rocking and reminiscing about the good old days when they hooked up with productive writers to produce wonderful literature for children around the world!

Putting an end to the week

Hi everyone,

It has been the good week. In addition to the old proposal I discovered in the files and sent out, I’ve spend my days writing new poems to expand another old idea I came across. I’ll keep pecking away at that one today and all of next week. By then I hope to have this one ready to send out.

This afternoon a tree service starts taking out the hackberry that fell into the lake as well as the remaining part still upright. It will take three or four days and will eventually leave an enormous empty space at the corner of the yard. So sad to see the tree go.

Reporting the theft of three days

Hi everyone,

I can’t believe it’s Thursday! What happened to the other days? I’ve only been in my car twice this week so I’ve been here keeping an eye on the calendar and STILL Monday-Wednesday somehow disappeared. I don’t know where to report this. The folks at 911 might think me daft for reporting the theft of time. If you have other ideas, let me know. Meanwhile, I’m going to keep a closer eye on the rest of this week.

Do you have fireflies yet where you live? Ours are entertaining us now, taking me back to times when we put them in jars and smeared a few on our ring fingers. Now I just sit and enjoy. They are one of nature’s gifts on slow, late spring evenings. Old people have it made. We know when we have to exert ourselves, and when it’s better to pour something soothing and love being entertained ringside.
