Insidious Deceptions (Short Story) - 4/5/2014 9:24:50 AM
Not really so insidious. The fault lies entirely with the doctor who delivered. As for the two of them meeting by coincidence? Once again I ask whether this is a true story. The odds aren't impossible. As for possible future genetic defects? Only DNA will tell.
Editing and formatting are needed.

Weeds are Survivors... (Article) - 3/29/2014 8:59:09 AM
I'm surprised no one else has commented. I'm akin with you regarding weeds. From the strength of my perception I have always considered weeds, plant and human, to be of worth and encouraged them to venture out and grow. While I have been known to hand weed out competition so that the very best can survive, I've also been known to support those with no chance without my support. Some may see this as contradictory. But I see it as a way to overcome broad brush approaches like Goldwater's famous "defoliate them" in reference to the Vietnamese countryside and how we could win the war by removing the forest cover with Agent Orange and napalm. We all know where that led to.
As farmers and city dwellers alike seek "easy" ways to eradicate unsightly weeds with products like Roundup, leading to the death of bees, bats, and colors other insects along with the plants that support them, eventually poisoning our food stocks and us. All in the name of convenience and "progress." In the end, the weeds will survive long after us.
Cell Phove VS My Personal Space... (Poetry) - 5/4/2015 9:21:08 AM
I hate the way cell phones have intruded on our lives. Texting or sexting is quieter but, because it makes the person doing it dumber than a fence post, is just about the same. But I love the way you ended your poem and an affair, just the same… Cool.
Cell Phove VS My Personal Space... (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 9:48:46 PM
OMG! Way too cool.
Cell Phove VS My Personal Space... (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 6:59:10 PM
Yep. Been there standing in that line. I hardly even answer a call if I am in a public place, but if I do I always say I'll call you back.

I don't play games unless I'm with the one I love and we play for fun for a bit. I get your message, kj. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

Sounds like he also had foot-in-mouth disease. Keep kickin' it. :)
Hand and Foot Disorder... (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 7:27:26 AM
A bittersweet poem. Some, like my mother, didn't have the courage. But later, she made sure that he waited on her a bit, just to see how it felt.
It is strange how all these sentimental folks claim that it was better back in the day when women stayed with their husband until he died early and then she was a widow for the rest of her life. It really wasn't better, it was just a lot harder to give his A** the boot.
Hand and Foot Disorder... (Poetry) - 4/21/2015 6:50:27 AM
He got the boot,
with no delays.
he should have known,
the door swings both ways.
Now he's on the outside,
and looking in.
Another love lost,
what a sin.
Hand and Foot Disorder... (Poetry) - 4/20/2015 1:23:43 PM
Yep. Happens a lot.

Controller Addiction.... (Poetry) - 4/19/2015 9:25:45 AM
I've been fortunate as I am not fast enough to play those games on X-Box and such...though a new game is coming out about Star Wars, now that would be a game I'd like to play, maybe I can get it on the computer...? But I would never wish to do it all the time, though yes I think being "in" it might be fun, but only if I could come back when of it I tire...cool wite that draws one in...-e-
Controller Addiction.... (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 7:37:34 AM
Like my grandmother, I'm addicted to solitaire. Only I play it on the computer instead of with cards like she did. My twin brother just told me how he likes to play the slots on the Internet. I recall my mother and father spending much of their retirement at slot machines claiming they won a lot of "jackpots."
I've only tried video games briefly, and I'm glad for it because I can believe that these games can be highly addictive because of the instantaneous feedback and endorphin release that they give, like addictive drugs. We have to kidnap them and take them out camping in the wild without any toys, not even a cell phone. You'd be surprised how they will revert back to being real children again after a few days of deprivation.
Controller Addiction.... (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 7:03:35 AM
Very cool! It's amazing how addictive those games can be, and not only games, but cell phones as well. people can not put them down. they are on them constantly (my wife included) whether it's playing games on them, texting, talking, etc.
Controller Addiction.... (Poetry) - 4/17/2015 6:48:30 AM

Chicken and bacon gets my old butt to achin'
I'd rather have Jim Beam and coke and that's no joke... :)
But I like your poem just the same.
To Each His Own... (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 6:46:05 AM
Jack and Gill
went up the hill
for some chicken and bacon.
It was such a big thrill
as they laid on the grill,
but I'm not sure what they were makin'
To Each His Own... (Poetry) - 4/14/2015 6:16:00 AM
The cute little fuzzy threw me off. And then, while I read, I kept thinking about that little ditty, Jack and Diane. But that doesn't fit your two chefs theme. In the end I think I see what you mean.

From what I'm reading, we need a whole new slate of nursery rhymes to reflect the times.

Yeah, you're right, it is a much different world which most people refuse to acknowledge.

I would never want to be incarcerated, But you almost make it sound appealing. I would need one of those get of jail free cards.

Are you fishing for friends, kj?
No need. You had me at "hello." :)
Words... (Poetry) - 3/30/2015 9:14:44 AM
We all should have a site that shows us as we are and not as we contrive to be. For in acceptance of our being who we are, your poem turns curiosity into support.
Words... (Poetry) - 3/30/2015 7:10:56 AM
Sometimes, words are all we have. I enjoyed reading this.

Gripping, intense, very engaging work. Fantastic ending!
Twist in Time (Poetry) - 3/28/2015 11:12:46 AM
Your poem certainly has a twist. And you have a starring role.

One for the movies. Great write!
Twist in Time (Poetry) - 3/27/2015 8:24:21 AM
Quite a write,
with twists and turns of fate,
and a touching end,
that was simply great.
Twist in Time (Poetry) - 3/27/2015 8:00:32 AM
Quite a tantalizing tale, kj. It had me reading the lines fast to get to the end, and then WHAM! A very good ending. Then I reread it very slowly, savoring your thoughts turned into words. My kind of poem.
Survivors of Life... (Poetry) - 3/25/2015 7:38:06 AM
I agree with Jerry, and I would also add, those lowly weeds have the most beautiful blooms. I do not treat our yard, and as a result there are many dandelions and wild violets growing. In the middle of summer when other yard are brown, mine is still lush and green. Long live the weeds.
Survivors of Life... (Poetry) - 3/24/2015 5:45:22 PM
Jerry...thank you for your comments.. much appreciated. I appreiciate when others understand the thoughts of which I write.
Survivors of Life... (Poetry) - 3/24/2015 12:26:20 PM
You betcha, the weed can be compared with the common person who has to live in substandard places, but eventually grows up and achieves in spite of his harsh surroundings. Very, very insightful.
Mindful Thoughts from My Head (Poetry) - 3/24/2015 7:52:08 AM
A whole lot of remembrance between the time you woke up and then finally got up in that half-asleep world of your thoughts.
I find myself in this state quite often, waking up too early to be dragged out of bed by my helpers.
Mindful Thoughts from My Head (Poetry) - 3/24/2015 6:18:23 AM
This is simply beautiful, and heartfelt. I really enjoyed reading this.
It's good to see you posting again.

For health reasons,
Salt's not to keen.
So eat what your served,
Or else you'll get beaned.
Good one, and I'm glad you're still with us on AD.
