Taken from a very weird dream...

So, I hear you died,

If not, then someone lied,

They said you fell into the French fryer,

Should I take it then that you left us fried…?


Will I recognize you when in heaven I see you,

Which type of fry do you resemble,

McDonalds is the easiest to identify,

Though there are all styles of the fry…


Are you lean or full of fat,

Or when you hit the fryer did you go splat,

Were you cremated, burned unrecognizable,

Or was a spatula used to make you flat…?

LOL Ron! Reckon your dream was his nightmare! Do you have the same saying your side of the Pond as we do here, then... that to die is to "have your chips" (i.e. fries...)? Poor thing has surely been a-salted at the very least... xx

I went to Fry's (computer store) to install an upgraded drive in my old iMac. They charged me for the drive, the installation, and the clean installation of the system, all adding up to more than I wanted to pay. Does that mean they burned me? Left a bad taste in my mouth.

Love ya!

Fascinating! Eh... well ok, such an interesting dream of the days events. You know we all dream symbolically. And by the way you paint quite well! Spray can of mind or not. Always causing me to smile at your creations. They are always entertaining for sure. Laughing at what Jerry said! :)

You never cease to amaze me on the canvas you paint!

Love and Light

No dreams are weird, Ed . . . Well, maybe some are . . . And in fact this one probably was, ya freak!

Cute, but brutal bit of wondering about the cute little fry.
