This is the last of my trilogy that I placed in and around Decatur, Illinois. It's my home town and I'm proud of it.

How magical. I loved it. I can't wait for my grandson and my granddaughter to read this small story. You are an excellent writer. Thank You for allowing us to enjoy your talent.
Snow On The Roof but Fire in the Furnace (Article) - 3/12/2008 9:21:30 AM
Greatly enjoyed this commentary, for I have a number of friends of the XX persuasion who, despite having entered their sixth decade of life, still insist on hiding all that grey hair under a patina of artificial color. Notable among them are a fair number of Asian-American women who seem to absolutely detest that 'salt & pepper' look that is their particular shared follicular destiny. Personally, I am of the opinion that the gray and black admixture looks classy and sexy as can be, but all my assurances to that end appear to fail miserably. As for the inevitable thinning effect that is a reflection of basic human physiology and biochemistry, there is a suitably droll saying I have always appreciated: "Hair today, gone tomorrow!"
Mahalo for sharing these amusing insights with us.

For My Dad (Poetry) - 6/8/2008 10:08:31 AM
My dad went to be with his Lord in 1972, and he is still thought of and missed each day. He was a wonderful Dad and loved his family very much. Our trips to the mountains, the shore, and down South remain in my memory today and he loved his antiques he had in his basement. He was a great person in my estimation and will always be missed. Your father too will always be in your memories. Thanks for this write about him too and your love for him shows.

I just love my computer and being able to review things on the den. Spend lots of time on it each day, hope it does not crash any too soon either. Just love the friends I make on the den and their writes. Nothing else can be better therapy right now in my grieving but my computer. Thanks a lot.
My White Caddy (Poetry) - 6/8/2008 10:02:04 AM
I loved my 1962 Champagne colored convertible, a Ford XL and it was so joyful to take off with my cousin and go to parks and Gettysburg, PA and all. We rode many a days around the town in it. Now I have a blue Chevy Corsica 1996 and I love it just as well. It gets me where I want to go in my old age too. HOpe it keeps running well.
Just Me (Poetry) - 6/8/2008 9:59:25 AM

found this great tribute today as I was browsing a few favorite spots...this is heart warming and heart felt...I wish your son the best, he will be in our prayers..I try to pray for our young men and women who are protecting our country daily. My mom told me the same thing before my children were born, my son is more like his father, but my daughter...well that's a different story...I said the same to her, now her daughter is like a duplicate of us both...ah the things a parent says,,,they do come back to haunt us...God Bless you and your son.

How tender and sweet...
Just Me (Poetry) - 5/15/2006 1:13:23 PM
The picture speaks for itself of a proud Grandma doing her thing. Wonderful insightful poetry.
Just Me (Poetry) - 5/15/2006 12:25:17 PM
Honesty is a wonderful thing, and you sound like a kind person, but best of all is the lack of awkwardness in these rhymes.
My Memorial Day Tribute (Poetry) - 5/15/2006 12:13:48 PM
This is a sad commentary on the state of our world; how little we have evolved that we still have wars. This is a fine tribute, Sherri. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,
Withdrawal (Poetry) - 5/14/2006 5:26:22 PM
I've been there Sherri; luckily not for a long time now but I do remember those feelings. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
Withdrawal (Poetry) - 5/13/2006 1:26:50 PM
Very imaginative and entertaining prose. Great title too. Perhaps we're computer junkies. My computer crashed last year and I can definately relate to this. My best, Gloria

Brown Eyes (Poetry) - 5/3/2006 8:36:27 PM
Awww. You have no idea how this plucked at my heart strings Sherri. When I came to America I left my furry best friend behind and I miss her more than I could express. How I long to stroke her silky fur and to cuddle her. Thanks for sharing this.
Haiku-The Sea (Poetry) - 5/3/2006 8:35:14 PM

Brown Eyes (Poetry) - 5/3/2006 1:39:37 PM
I love this one. Especially the line,
"A soft sigh escapes as he looks away, giving up for the moment."
PERFECTLY captured...they don't ask for much, but give so much in return. Beautifully penned!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
For My Dad (Poetry) - 4/27/2006 3:33:52 PM
I'm sorry for your loss. My Daddy is currently in a nursing home, undergoing rehabilitation. He's been battling pneumonia, heart irregularities, diabetes, kidney failure, a broken vertebrae (from a fall due to weakness) for months now. This rang deeply with me...a poignant, beautiful rememberance and pic. He reminds me of my own Daddy...
((((((HUGS)))))) and love, Karla. :(
My Memorial Day Tribute (Poetry) - 4/27/2006 3:11:52 PM
As the daughter, sister, niece of a Veteran, and a Veteran myself, I thank you for this moving tribute. Too many are dead set against our men and women in uniform, who stepped in the boots others wouldn't dream of wearing. Well done, this is a keeper!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
I salute you, Poet!
My Memorial Day Tribute (Poetry) - 4/27/2006 3:10:38 PM

Love and light, Jo
For My Dad (Poetry) - 4/26/2006 6:46:38 PM
I lost my dad last June, Sherri. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss him so much. I still look at his pictures and can't hardly wrap my mind around the fact that he's gone. I've written a couple of stories about our times together...it's cathartic to write about those you love don't you agree? This is more like a letter, poured straight from the heart. Lovely work. Michelle
