Those Were the Days …

Carefree …

Bicycle days

Summer fun in shorts and flip-flops

Daily freedom after chores were done

Exploring the nooks and crannies

of my little town

Most afternoons at the pool

With …

Wednesday and Saturday

at the local library

Rock outlined play houses

Pumping hard on the swings

Bailing out if you were brave

Skateboarding down the

Methodist Church hill

And …

Roller skating on the

tennis court

Lightning Bug Nights

and homemade peach ice cream

Those were the days …

Giggles …

Giggles …

A friend had this bumper sticker on

her car back in the 1980s …

‘Life is too short to dance with ugly men’

Every time I saw her car it made me

Giggle …

Sometimes an out right belly laugh depending

on who she was dating at the time and/or

my current main squeeze

 

Life is too serious not to have fun

and giggles are part of fun …

Laughter is important, but giggles

are an entirely different matter …

They build from somewhere deep

inside bubbling up to the back

of your throat until they come

pouring forth like a fine champagne

They burst forth and are contagious

leaving us happy all over

and smiling deeply

 

Look for fun in life

And…

Giggle often …

Something for everyone

Fun…Lost

Fun…Lost

When friendships are

more work than fun

what is the next road?

 

Do you continue…

Work harder…

Try more…

Care deeper…

 

Or…

 

Do you close the door

Quietly walk away

Leaving it slightly ajar

In the event

Fun returns…

Whiskey Glazed…

Whiskey Glazed…

The day after Halloween
Fun was had by all
young and old
 
Crepe paper skeletons
in the front yard trees
are wet and dripping
like melted ice cream
 
November snuck in the
back door over night
and left me wanting
more October
 
Looking to Turkey Day
and all the food it entails
I begin to think new and different
 
Perhaps…
A Whiskey Glazed Turkey
or…
maybe the Ham
or…
maybe both
 
I’ll need a lot
of Whiskey by then

Stronger

The longer we are together
The stronger our Union becomes
 
Trust…
Compassion…
Laughter…
And
A bit of Risk…
 
Keeps each of us
on our toes
Always searching for
something
new…
exciting…
fun…
 
To strengthen
what we have
Together…

Wants…
Needs…
Desires…
 
Everyone has them
All so different
 
Some are the same
Many are extremely different
At times shocking
Yet…
Intriguing
 
Exploration is fun
when each person is
creative, fun-loving and
Enjoys the Risk
of where it will 
Lead…

Crazy

Life is a series

of ups and downs

Some days better

than others

For me some are

crazier than others…

Not crazy as in bedbug looney

toons crazy…

But…crazy as in…

Busy…

Interesting…

Fun…

OR

WTF…!

In the words of

Trudy the Bag Lady…

“It’s my belief that

we’re all crazy.”

I’ll take a fun and crazy life

over a dull and boring one

any day!
