just a little something for your reading pleasure

I Am A Raindrop
I am a raindrop and
my number one thrill is to
land in the palm of someone
whose arm is outstretched
to see if
it's raining yet.

A frog sets up a kissing stand
a dollar per kiss
a princess buys two kisses
the first she takes right away
changing the frog into a handsome prince
the second one she saves
in case
he gets uppity.

The pebbles groan under my shoes
as they get scraped and stepped on but
I ignore their complaints
I just can't
worry about everything.

so when it's all done will I "fit" in the tub?

The floor in the bathroom is done and it's beautiful, we love it. I only wish the installer had put the right color and size saddle in and reinstalled the toilet bowl so that it's straight!! It's facing v-e-r-y slightly to the right, and most people wouldn't notice it, (I'm sure Glenn won't till I point it out to him) but it BOTHERS me! Well, Bath Fitter, is next on the list and they will have to take the toilet out again anyway, so I'm not going to make a big deal about that, but the guy is coming back to change the saddle in the doorway for sure!!! So what do you think, after all, they do call themselves Bath Fitters... will I fit? never happen! :)

Time is a gift...

What a wonderful day we had today! I won the first place cup, crown and wand in Callie's contest, and Jenna took 750 pictures of the basement while Ryan ran circles around her. They remind me of days gone by when it was Ann Marie, Rachel and Alyson doing the running. Time is a gift...


For the third straight day in a row, there's been a beautiful little irredescent red hummingbird outside in the garden, no doubt looking for his feeder! Hold on Zip, it's coming!

I have quirks???

You Are Teal Green

You are a one of a kind, original person. There's no one even close to being like you.
Expressive and creative, you have a knack for making the impossible possible.
While you are a bit offbeat, you don't scare people away with your quirks.
Your warm personality nicely counteracts and strange habits you may have.

pretty accurate, I think

I really love my sister

You are stuggling... I see it, I feel it, I hurt for you, but I must tell you, I believe with all my heart that you will come out of this somehow wiser, stronger, and more aware. Hold on to that thought, tuck it away in a corner of your heart until the worry melts enough for the learning to have meaning.

"Only love can break a heart"

"The man who shot Liberty Valance", Gene Pitney died in his sleep last night, after a sold out performance in England, "A town without pity". He was only 65! :(

"Oooh, where do you go, when you don't want no-one to know?"

I'm sitting here at the computer listening to one of the BEST EVER RECORDED, songs! Where the hell did you go Cat?

feeling ridiculously old!

I'm having so much fun (although I must admit my back aches) playing handball in the gym now that I've found Pennsylvania's version of a "spaldeen". Yesterday, I was waiting for Glenn to join me, and was hitting the ball against the wall by myself in a pretty constant almost melodic way, and a song popped in to my head that I can't believe I actually remembered the words to!
"Hello, hello, hello, sir.
Meet me at the grocer.
No, sir. Why, sir?
Because I have a cold, sir.
Where'd you get the cold, sir?
At the North Pole, sir.
What were you doin' there, sir?
Catchin' a polar bear, sir.
How many did you catch, sir?
One sir, two sir, three sir, four sir.
That's enough for me, sir."
I remember my friends and I in knee sock competition! We would bounce the ball in the sock, standing against the brick wall of my grandparents apartment building where I also lived, from left to right raising our opposite arm on each "sir", and if I wasn't so afraid of looking ridiculous, I might just bring a knee sock to the gym on Monday : )
