Boys and Their Toys (Short Story) - 3/23/2007 1:19:55 PM|
Boys will be boys. With my hubby, it's Jeeps and jeep related accessories--not to mention his hot-rod project. I figured it would be wrong to stand between him and his child-like delights. I just make sure he's not blowing our mortgage on winches and brush-guards.

I'm glad he came along!
What would life be if it wasn't shared?

Perhaps the best tree there is. My all time favorite too.
Who Is To Blame? (Poetry) - 9/13/2010 4:27:20 AM
That punk. Though it would never have occured to you at the time, you were so beyond all of that.
Ode to My Father's Truck (Poetry) - 9/13/2010 4:24:36 AM
Excellent and moving. What better way to start out the day - bawling like a baby. :)

We miss those special folks who touch us. A wonderful tribute to your dad.

Snake in the Woodpile (Poetry) - 5/27/2009 8:58:01 AM
Been there done that too. Married a snake that slithered around me for 16 years. I shed the bum though. Good job Nan. I like your writing style. Gonna follow you.
Ode to My Father's Truck (Poetry) - 5/27/2009 8:56:36 AM
Lovely tribute to your father. My dad's been gone for 12 years, and I miss him like the day he left. Good job Nan.
Ode to My Father's Truck (Poetry) - 7/26/2008 4:08:35 PM
Am right there with you in missing my Dad. I always went with him and sat in the back seat when a child as if to say He's my chauffer.
He didn't mind, I did not mind. I was my fathers sidekick he'd tell others. I had such good times with him. Mother was the disciplanarian in our family and Dad and I were the ones who stuck together against her if we could. He was a very good man, my dad and handsome besides. Have photos to relate to him when needing memories.
His Way (Poetry) - 7/26/2008 12:25:09 PM
God is number one in my life now always. He give me what he wants me to have, leads me on my way each and every day I live now. I will abound in his tender mercies.
Snake in the Woodpile (Poetry) - 7/11/2008 8:38:27 PM
Nan this is priceless! Don't know what or who this is about...but it was sure a great topic to put on paper... YOu did it right, and gave us alot of food for thought.... There are all types of snakes in this world... be glad you/? escaped.... a iittle bite/sting...isn't near as bad as being totally devoured... You got it right...like I said... kick butt and keep going...best of all...keep writing... you sure have a gift... lindalaw
Ode to My Father's Truck (Poetry) - 7/11/2008 8:34:52 PM
I know you miss him...like Cryssa misses her mom; and I miss both of mine, my son, my precious mate, and on and on it goes... You know, sometimes we don't have to "move" to "feel" them near....but sometimes we have no choice....but remember this.... wherever you are..He is! My late hubby used to tell me about my first granddaughter... She is the spittin image of you thru and thru...and as long as she lives...you live! I thought about that, and it spoke volumes... We are a part of those we love and so on... I love this poem very much... very very much. Lindalaw
Heartache (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 7:11:50 PM
A perfect description of heartache...
Snake in the Woodpile (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 6:42:46 PM
Ouch, sounds like someone has been burned by a bad relationship. Yes, there are worse things than snakes....
Be always safe,
Snake in the Woodpile (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 6:28:20 PM
I hope he did not ruin you for life or for another relationship. You can find something better and eventually go on with life. Believe me I do know, it happened to me. Being asked for a divorce with 4 daughters to raise, and then divorcing him I found true love with my 2nd husband. Don't give up, there are good ones still out there who won't hurt you but give you lots of love and truly stand by you in everything you do. So sorry what you are going through now. Things will get better in time.
Protecting Love (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:58:18 PM
We all need those little wake-up calls in our life...
Saying Goodbye (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:57:11 PM
Especially when goodbyes come unexpectedly...
trying to hold sand in an hourglass doesn't work, but oh... that it would...
My Mother (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:54:45 PM
This brought tears to my eyes, as I think my daughter could have written this... or I about my daughter...
Real Love (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:53:34 PM
A beautiful tribute to your son...
If only children could understand this love...
I Knew You When (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:51:22 PM
a sad comment on life...when changes come and we are no longer "needed"
Ode to My Father's Truck (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:50:11 PM
I know the feeling...There I things I just don't move because they contain traces of my mother.
Snake in the Woodpile (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 5:39:10 PM
So sad to be true. So many's reality
Snake in the Woodpile (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 4:25:08 PM
I enjoyed the point of view in this; well conceived, well expressed.
Snake in the Woodpile (Poetry) - 7/10/2008 2:48:44 PM

Weeping Willow (Poetry) - 7/2/2008 8:51:07 PM
Darn it... sometimes we sure do have to kiss alot of ugly frogs before that Prince finally comes along! Sure hope you got a good one! lindalaw
I Knew You When (Poetry) - 7/2/2008 8:50:22 PM
Isn't that the truth... Everyone knew us "when".... but where are they when we need THEM? Good writing. lindalaw
Love Ain't Got No Buts (Poetry) - 7/2/2008 8:49:38 PM
Are you sure I didn't write this.. sounds just like words I've said a million times... and had said to me as many jillion times... :-)) good poem. lindalaw
Weeping Willow (Poetry) - 6/10/2008 1:24:32 PM
A wonderful use of imagery. The emotion in this poem is raw and real - true to life. Well done!
A Relaxing Ditty (Poetry) - 5/13/2008 6:49:15 AM
Need action and exercise each day. I'd rather lie abed but force myself to get up and go about the day's duties. Going to library to return books today, get out each day somewhere, at least to get out the house and get a newer outlook on life. See something and someone exciting when I get out.
Love God's Way (Poetry) - 5/13/2008 6:47:52 AM
A loving tribute to someone and Love God's Way is surely the truth and a wonderful professional too. God Bless You.
Love Ain't Got No Buts (Poetry) - 5/13/2008 6:46:22 AM
No buts lead to action and not failure and rejection. Let the word fade out of existance for all I care, it just means unsureness too.
Protecting Love (Poetry) - 8/13/2007 8:32:30 AM
Very Good Write!...One that all couples should read daily and POST IT with a "refrigerator magnet" so that they ARE REMINDED DAILY!!!
Thank you for such an insight into one of the most common pitfalls of marriage--taking each other for granted.
All the best;
Love Ain't Got No Buts (Poetry) - 5/1/2007 10:01:16 AM
Hi Nan, I read your poem ,"Love Ain't Got No Buts" found it true!
I married my wife who was a divorced woman with three kids in tow. I thought that this lady had enough "buts" in her life. So there weren't
any now, too. Keep up the good work! Please feel free to visit my site at www.freewebs.com/kendoo.
Saying Goodbye (Poetry) - 4/20/2007 5:52:59 PM
Saying goodbye is never easy. We try to save the good parts and forget the bad, which comes in the same bag. I like this write. It's thought-provoking.
Love Ain't Got No Buts (Poetry) - 4/20/2007 5:47:16 PM
Yes, on all the above. Exactly! Might I add the one I've gotten,
"I love you but I'm not IN love with you."
Thanks for sharing this Nan.
Breakup: Shoo! (Poetry) - 4/7/2007 10:19:23 PM
Exactly. I like the way you wrote this one.
My Mother (Poetry) - 4/5/2007 9:11:23 AM
I have the same relationship with my mother and this is so true. Excellent!
Love Ain't Got No Buts (Poetry) - 4/5/2007 9:10:14 AM
Oh, yeah. Very well-put.
Weeping Willow (Poetry) - 4/5/2007 9:08:41 AM
Oh, lovely. Thanks for sharing.
Who Is To Blame? (Poetry) - 4/5/2007 9:08:02 AM
Wow. My daughter just got out of an abusive relationship, and she needs to see this. Thank you so much for sharing.
Love Ain't Got No Buts (Poetry) - 3/28/2007 5:59:39 AM
Clever and amusing poem and highly original.
Weeping Willow (Poetry) - 3/27/2007 3:07:42 PM
My favorite tree is the weeping willow and I too had many a joyous day playing and dreaming under one as a child. I love this poem and as you said life came and with it the weeping, but I remember well my dreams of youth and still hold many such dreams close to my heart. Thank you for reminding me of some them. Elizabeth

He's Such Magic (Poetry) - 3/24/2007 9:03:17 PM
Had a lot of major self doubt once upon a time. Kept waiting for the other shoe to drop or the axe to come out of the closet!
Protecting Love (Poetry) - 3/24/2007 9:02:05 PM
Ummm - thank you Andy, I think. Would you be willing to explain your review to me? I sense another poem in there!
He's Such Magic (Poetry) - 3/24/2007 8:55:56 PM
Nice write, hear a little self doubt. Enjoyed reading this.

Beautiful tribute from a lucky in love person.
Protecting Love (Poetry) - 3/24/2007 1:32:58 PM
Very mature, as all blokes feel, that a satisfied need, no longer motivates...
Divorce: Facing The End (Poetry) - 3/23/2007 4:09:38 PM
