Downright Funny! from Crazy Me

One of life's mysteries
is how a two pound box of candy
can make a woman gain FIVE pounds!

I don't understand.
I'll never comprehend.

Could it be the box
that entices the recipient to partake?
Or it just might be the smell emanating from said box.
No, I think it's the color of the delights inside the box.
Or better yet, the fillings!

Can we say, "The devil made me do it?"
Or "The temptation was just too great?"
Or maybe even blame it on "I'm addicted to chocolate."

Hold on!
I'll be back in a sec . . .

I've got to sample just
one . . .
more . . .

Monday Morning Gratitudes

Storms that clear the air
Nice peaceful Saturday with Son #1 and his girlfriend--pontooning, eating out, laughing.
A wonderful husband who happens to be a wonderful father too.
A wise man
Men who cook
flowers that brighten my corner
spicy smells

Sunday Morning Peace: Our Declaration of Independence--Coming UP!


OH, Say, Can you see,
by the dawn's early light . . .

Oh, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the power that hath made 
and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
--Francis Scott Key

Just remember!
