A New Poem and a New Photo


I have written a new poem titled, “Grandma’s 100th Birthday Anniversary”. It is a trip down nostalia lane, with a definite twist. Hope you enjoy it. [Just click on the graphics to enlarge them.]



Also, I got to play a rootin’ tootin’ cowboy at church this morning. I was invited to do a little cowboy skit for a preschool group of kids, and the contact person gave me a script of what I was supposed to do for two to three minutes.

That was the first problem.

Hey, I don’t really admit that my short-term memory is going south on me . . . but it is getting harder and harder for me to memorize information. I really have to sweat over that new stuff. So I got started on the material several days in advance and then winged it as best I could. Of course, the kids didn’t know when or if I left something out. And I didn’t know either, until it was all over. They really roared when I got them to shouting the cowboy “hello” — “Howdy, pardner! Yee-haw!”

Anyway, I enjoyed the kids and they seemed to get a kick out of what must be the wierdest ol’ cowhand they’ve seen in a blue moon. The director asked me to do two more skits on two different Sundays. So it’s back to my “homework”.

Hope you had a good week last week. Join me in looking forward to this new week and to being watchful for someone you meet to whom you can be a blessing.

Gotta go, so “cherrio ol’ chaps”.
