Memorial Day


So many smiles on their faces

Not a word spoken of the dark places

Gathered quietly at the lost and found

Waiting patiently not making a sound

The train arrives and the doors open wide

Arms held out for the loved ones who've arrived

Tear stained faces show how much they were missed

Soldiers finally getting that…

"In Flanders Fields the Poppies Blow..."

My father was not a poet and not the type to go around quoting poetry. But for some reason, every Memorial Day he would recite this poem from memory. He was born just after World War I ended, and he was a  World War II Vet himself. He never said why he liked or recited this poem, but he used to always bring me a Poppy on Memorial Day that he got from his VFW post. So, I just thought I'd post it up, in order  that we could all remember the enormous amount of sacrifice that has been put forth…

Book List Number One, Day One ... Nightstand Collection

   As I considered the wonderful task of reading all my unread treasures I was overwhelmed with just where to begin. Do I start making my list by going through all my bookcases, or going through the books all neatly lined up on the floor in my office or? My head was just numb with too much thinking and not enough doing. I took the thought of making a list and parked it in the back of my mind and crawled into bed. That is where the proverbial light bulb went off. I reached towards my…

Mini Skillet Meatloaves!


"Mommmmmmm--meatloaf again?"  You'll never hear this in MY house because I am not a big fan of meatloaf.  However, this recipe caught my attention--individual loaves--check.  Tangy sauce--check.  No need to scrub the meatloaf pan--CHECK!  Extra sauce on the side is welcomed, as it is delightfully delicious to drag that delectable bite through the delicate sauce and gobble up every morsel on your plate!  The final straw is my children loved it--CHECK.

This freezes beautifully…

Creative Writing Challenge #26 - My Mother

My mother will be gone for four years come July.  I still find it hard to wrap my mind around that sad fact.  There are times that I'm sure if I drive over to Marshall Ave., she'll be sitting in her favorite rocker (you can see her sitting there on my FB profile pic)…

Creative Writing Challenge #26 - My Mother

My mother is an iron will and a strong determination.  She is a cloud of White Shoulders perfume once tinted with Aqua Net.  She is Ranger's baseball and every tear-jerker ever broadcast on the Hallmark channel.  She is a huge pot of red beans and a plate of sweet cornbread with little green onions on the…

Complex Cognitive Process of Decoding Symbols A.K.A. Reading


            I love books. I especially love my books. I love books so much that through the years I have amassed an extensive personal home library. My library fills two bookcases in my bedroom, two bookcases in my office, a huge bookcase in a spare bedroom and two very tall bookcases in the basement. My books overflow onto the floor where they are…
