Phydoux on a Diet (Short Story) - 7/7/2010 5:48:13 AM
Of course you know, Phydoux, you could always pull a "Ghandi" on them until they see you so weak, they relent and shower you with the good stuff...just a thought. Cheers and good luck, Dan

Phydoux -- On Butt Sniffing (Short Story) - 12/12/2007 2:34:02 PM
I knew the moment I read the title this was gonna be funny. And by golly it is. But then there are the crotch sniffers. Ususally huge dogs that come right up and stick their noses in your crotch, and not gently either. You try not to look embarrased but the whole thing is humilliating. The owners always say .."Oh he's just getting to know you." So tell me Phydoux, why can't the dog just sniff our butts like they do yours? Walt

Phydoux -- On Butt Sniffing (Short Story) - 12/12/2007 6:23:22 AM
A most interesting topic, Phydoux, although I don't profess to know the answer. But I do know that my four dogs absolutely love to sniff my wife's butt, and it drive her mad, and it makes me laugh hysterically!

Phydoux -- On Butt Sniffing (Short Story) - 12/11/2007 8:20:26 PM
A dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do. Like reading Pee-mail. Tell me something, Phydoux, where do y'all store all that pee? Used to walk my Sultan (half chow-half wolf), no, check that, he used to walk me. ANYWAY, 'bout every five steps he'd water the grass or whatever was convenient. Needless to say, our hour walks took longer than that...I digress. LOL Dogs have no other way to say howdy, so they give the crotch and butt a good sniff (hello, how ya doin'?). I'd rather not do that...glad I'm not canine, although at times, it would be nice...just not butt sniffin'! LOL Well done, Larry, I love Phydoux. Put this in a book, and I want first copy! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. Merry Christmas to you and Phydoux!

Phydoux -- On Butt Sniffing (Short Story) - 12/11/2007 8:01:25 PM
LOL There's nothing more satisfying to a canine than to sniff the butt of another, be it a person, another canine, or another species altogether! It's the perfume of the dog world! Disgusting I know, but this is how they communicate. Don't understand it; makes me glad I'm not a dog! LOL Adorable write about a not so pleasant (if embarrassing) situation; geaux, Phydoux! You ROCK!! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Phydoux -- about Christmas (Short Story) - 11/29/2007 6:17:23 AM
A tender reminder of what Christmas is all about, and something to read with the children around the tree. Thanks Georg

Phydoux -- about Christmas (Short Story) - 11/29/2007 4:51:25 AM
The deeper into this one the funnier it gets. Especially this one... “there were shepherds keeping watch over their phlox by night.” Well done Phydoux. Walt

Phydoux -- about Christmas (Short Story) - 11/28/2007 7:34:44 PM
Oh, Phydoux, you're truly a genius! I think children can relate to this story, and even understand it. It reminds me of my son, Anthony Michael, when he was loosing his hearing. They'd just finished eating supper when my Mom started talking about the pagans and Jews. He got really excited and said, "Oh, boy, we're having bacon and juice!" Remember, they were at the dinner table ALREADY having eaten. Are you sure you aren't a reincarnation of my son? lol I look forward to more of your Christmas thoughts. God bless you. Kathy PS: I hope you find a nice prime rib steak under the tree this year.

Phydoux -- about Christmas (Short Story) - 11/28/2007 6:01:34 PM
Adorable write about the Christmas season; I hope Phydoux gets all that he dreams about for Christmas! Merry Christmas, Larry, and Mery Christmas, Phydoux! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Phydoux -- about Christmas (Short Story) - 11/28/2007 5:52:29 PM
Yes, Phydoux, you've got the True Meaning of Christmas; a beautifully moving write, tinted with a dash of humor. Your Christmas card message is PERFECT. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Phydoux And Instant Messaging (Short Story) - 11/23/2007 5:50:51 PM
I love Phydoux, but like him, do not understand instant messanging: still trying to learn the Internet...thing. LOL Well done, Larry. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. WHAT is IMHO? I'm Hot? LOL

Phydoux And Instant Messaging (Short Story) - 11/23/2007 12:49:46 PM
Phydoux, instant messaging is a novel and great way to communicate with folks I Really Like. Personally, I'd never do this with someone that I don't know. Too risky, I think. Be smart, stay home, love Larry and most importantly, if your gut says its not a good thing - you're probably right. Kathy

Phydoux And Instant Messaging (Short Story) - 11/23/2007 11:20:51 AM
Delightful piece, Larry; Phydoux rocks!! Very well penned; bravo! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D Another addition to the Phydoux Philes! :D

Phydoux And Instant Messaging (Short Story) - 11/23/2007 7:15:08 AM
Oh, welcome to the club!!! suddenly in my old age things aren't done to facilitate my life but for screw it up good (pardon my french) Yes, what the heck is LOL? and common battle fatigue becoming PSSD? Its like nobody has the time to write the full word so we, the less nerds, can understand. Next years we will be celebrating a gobble gobble TGD. Goggen

Phydoux At The Dinner Theatre (Short Story) - 11/17/2007 2:20:18 AM
It is refreshing to meet a preacher with a funny bone that loves dogs and dogs philosophical minds... Now...heel! Georg

Phydoux At The Dinner Theatre (Short Story) - 11/16/2007 4:26:40 PM
This is very, very good Larry. Except for one thing, why would a blind man go to a dinner theater? Was Phydoux telling you what was happening on stage? Then, if he was calling the play for you, wouldn't that make him a Rufferee?....LOL Walt

Phydoux At The Dinner Theatre (Short Story) - 11/16/2007 8:29:31 AM
Adorable write, Phydoux; you rock!! You da DAWG!! ARF!! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

The Shack (Article) - 12/2/2009 8:20:59 AM
I too recently read The Shack; I too thought it was another 'fad book' b/c everyone seemed to be reading it. However, what I found was riches beyond measure in this jewel of a book. I have sent it to everyone - both spiritual and searching - that i know! As the parent of a murdered daughter, it was difficult to read, but indeed it was well worth the tears b/c of the Light it sheds, the perspectives, the lovely brokenness and healing. And it left me with such amazing comfort. The subtitle 'Where Tragedy Meets Eternity' couldn't be more apt. I totally agree with Larry's assertion about it causing one to see God's love and grace in a new, refreshing way, and the point of religion being a product of humans (not of God) yet how much God years for a relationship with each of us, that we might walk and talk with God freely and often. And yes it's a good reminder for we who dare judge others, for no one knows our hearts like God. This is a life-changing book, an absolute must-read (and then you'll want to send it to all your friends!) ... Carlynn

The Shack (Article) - 12/1/2009 7:16:45 AM
"After a long time I accepted the fact that I could still be a "manly man" and show my emotions." To me, it takes a real man to show his emotions. I was a State Law Enforcement Officer for twenty years, I cried sometimes after work, because I cared about the people I served. It takes a real man, a Godly man, to care.

My Un-free Dr Pepper (Article) - 11/25/2008 9:19:26 AM
Larry, I was surprised to learn [From you] that Dr. Pepper is still made...I tried it oncce, way back when my son was still in high school. I did not care for it, but I take your point in your article and do think you are right. Cheers, Dan

My Un-free Dr Pepper (Article) - 11/25/2008 6:11:59 AM
That's a good story. Interesting point.

My Un-free Dr Pepper (Article) - 11/25/2008 3:17:00 AM
Dear brother Larry, forget Dr.Pepper (how many bottles I drank in the forties and fifties?) switch to Coors, you will be right all the time!LOL Georg

Forgiveness In A Parable (Article) - 9/15/2008 7:25:37 AM
An excellent message is sent out in this article,Larry. I wish everyone could read this wonderful piece of work. An excellent write.

Forgiveness In A Parable (Article) - 1/10/2008 12:39:27 PM
A fine message about the paramount importance of forgiving, Larry. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Forgiveness In A Parable (Article) - 12/19/2007 12:38:35 PM
Accepting forgiveness is just as important as offering it. Nicely penned! Julie

Forgiveness In A Parable (Article) - 9/3/2007 9:08:50 PM
A very 'today' message about the Prodigal Son. It's one that is easily understood. Larry - you 'done good.' Kathy

A Different Selfie (Poetry) - 7/2/2014 3:23:15 PM
Hi Larry & Mrs. Larry, Very special little write but don't we have to die and go to heaven before we see God and have our pictures taken together...? I made it through 6 months of hopital/hell stay and have survived a great deal the last 5 years or so, so I don't want to die anytime soon, so I won't be takin' that selfie all too soon...Ed

A Different Selfie (Poetry) - 7/2/2014 3:06:46 PM
Beautiful!!! Sandie

A Different Selfie (Poetry) - 7/2/2014 10:18:40 AM
Show me his selfie in our image (no impostors please, even if commissioned by the church), and I will believe in him. Not before. By the way, that selfie of you and your wife on the page is wonderful. Ron

Following Mary at the Tomb (Poetry) - 4/19/2014 12:22:50 PM
That was a very special perspective about how Mary coped with the circumstances that Jesus had to go through for all of us. A real eye opener. Well done... Have a Happy Resurrection Day! Love and Blessings ion Christ, John Michael Domino

The Donkey And His Cross (Poetry) - 4/13/2014 7:57:53 AM

Little Black Haired Girl (Poetry) - 12/5/2013 10:20:48 PM
What a timeless poem, and told so well! Liked the detail, and the truth expressed here- excellent poem, just EXCELLENT! ~ zACH

He Tries To Save Christmas (Poetry) - 12/4/2013 7:59:53 AM
This is a classic worthy of "The Night before Christmas" attention. I have often wondered why the pious are the most angry. I am an atheist, but I enjoy singing the great Christmas carols (many former songs sung in pubs, cleaned up and reworded) and enjoying the festivities. If he lived, Jesus was a great example and provided many lessons for life that are often ignored by the pious in their desperate fear of their own personal, hypocritical lives. Ron

He Tries To Save Christmas (Poetry) - 12/3/2013 11:32:07 PM
A nice poetic reminder about the joy and sorrow that can come this time of year. The LOVE of Jesus is what it's all about. His love rings loud and clear! Have a Merry Christmas! John Michael

He Tries To Save Christmas (Poetry) - 12/3/2013 8:53:07 PM
"Peace on earth to men of goodwill" is such a universal message that it is difficult to understand how anyone could not embrace it.

Help Others and Help Yourself (Poetry) - 11/21/2013 8:03:05 AM
All we need in life is one friend like that...they give so much more than material things. Cheers to you for having such a friend, Dan

Help Others and Help Yourself (Poetry) - 11/20/2013 12:25:04 PM
These people are special and I'm so glad you are honoring them. They are the real unsung heroes/angels because they give so freely and don't expect anything in return. I have always been strong and independent since I was about 10 years old. Whenever I see an opportunity to help someone, I just do. I don't go around asking for money for people or trying to get others to help them, I just help them. It doesn't affect my life in any way but it does affect those I help. As for critters, We can't give Mr. Ed enough credit for what he does on a daily basis. Ron

Help Others and Help Yourself (Poetry) - 11/19/2013 5:11:20 PM
This is a well-written poem about helping others, every verse expressed so well. He did this from love within his heart to his fellowman, expecting nothing in return. I loved reading it.Thanks.

A Wee Little Man (Poetry) - 11/2/2013 3:09:35 PM
An object lesson about the roots of greed. Hurt begets hurt in an endless cycle until the cycle is finally broked by God himself. I hope all will find their cycle broken in the end Larry. Bob

A Wee Little Man (Poetry) - 11/1/2013 7:41:32 AM
I normally don't like religious poetry, but I found this one to be quite enjoyable. There have been many short people in history who have overcome their shortness to become great, while still bothered by their ruthlessness in getting where they got. Two people come to mind immediately, Napoleon Bonaparte and Richard Nixon. Ron

A Wee Little Man (Poetry) - 11/1/2013 12:15:18 AM
We all screw up Larry. The question is weather we learn from our dark past or we just continue without seeing the light? Let us consider Paul when he was Saul. If God could accept him and Paul could rise above his past as Saul then there is HOPE for us ALL. Amen!

A Wee Little Man (Poetry) - 10/31/2013 7:21:40 AM
Sage advice, Larry...well done. Cheers, Dan

A Wee Little Man (Poetry) - 10/31/2013 6:31:03 AM
a wonderfully well written piece budd

The Side of the Road (Poetry) - 7/12/2013 5:56:26 AM
larry, Wow...this speaks volumes, larry. This is a poem I'll always remember. I've always been an advocate for the downtrodden, I have compassion for people. If I saw anyone on the side of the road I'd help. By the grace of God go I. What if it were you laying there? Anyone who could pass him by is beyond me. Outstanding poem that makes people think! What would Jesus do? Love and blessings, Linda+

The Side of the Road (Poetry) - 7/11/2013 7:44:24 PM
Yes, this is a great poetic lesson in which we can all learn from. Blessings in Christ, John Michael Domino

The Side of the Road (Poetry) - 7/11/2013 1:05:06 PM
Thank you for sharing with us the old biblical story of the good Samaritan. Ron

The Side of the Road (Poetry) - 7/11/2013 7:00:35 AM
Larry, what a great message...thanks for posting. Cheers, Dan

The Side of the Road (Poetry) - 7/11/2013 5:41:32 AM
Good work!

When Jesus Woke Up in the Tomb (Poetry) - 3/14/2013 9:17:10 AM
This poem invited me into that special moment in history, when Jesus arose from the dead and shared His victory with us! May God bless those who contemplate the meaning and import of Christ's triumph in the garden of Calvary. ~ Zach

Anointing Jesus' Feet (Poetry) - 3/14/2013 9:10:08 AM
This entire poem was arresting, especially the last two lines in the fourth stanza about Judas' motives! Very eloquently conveyed, it got me thinking. Wonderful poem Larry. your brother in Christ, Zach

The Criminal On The Cross (Poetry) - 3/8/2013 1:58:47 PM
Larry...we fail to identify with the thief on the cross at peril to our eternal salvation. The finished work is Jesus', not ours, and should be a spur to us to make that work complete in us by going in the world and doing as He did. Words and pious gestures are insufficient. Our actions and changed attitudes are proof of our identification with the thief on the cross in our lifetime. Good write...God bless, ChipB.

The Criminal On The Cross (Poetry) - 3/7/2013 6:27:11 PM
With my past, that criminal would be me...I enjoyed reading your version of this, Larry...God Bless you...ed

The Old Letter Jacket (Poetry) - 3/2/2013 8:02:41 PM
Hey Larry: I haven't seen you around AD in a while. I like the poem very much, and te sentiment. I remember my high school letter jacket and sweater. Unfortunately they aren't around anymore: the sweater was gotten rid of in a purge of old clothes long ago. The jacket....I wore it to tatters well into my 20's. Good poem, but very bittesweet. God bless, Chip B.

The Old Letter Jacket (Poetry) - 3/2/2013 2:02:22 PM
Yep if they only could talk we would have to hide them.

The Old Letter Jacket (Poetry) - 3/2/2013 11:33:57 AM
The sweetest of nostalgia. Although I got several letters, I never bought the jacket. Ron

The Old Letter Jacket (Poetry) - 3/2/2013 8:12:54 AM
Cute idea for a write, Larry and it is great to see you dropping by the den to keep us entertained...e

The Old Letter Jacket (Poetry) - 3/2/2013 7:02:14 AM
Good to hear from you Larry, hope all is well. It's been so many years since I've seen that letter jacket of mine...I don't know where it could be. Cheers, Dan

The Old Letter Jacket (Poetry) - 3/2/2013 6:53:27 AM
Nice poetic thoughts... The old rugged cross appeals to me much more. I had a leather jacket and gave it away after I dropped it on the floor. Peace, love and Christ blessings, John Michael Domino

Joseph Remembers Christmas (Poetry) - 2/24/2013 6:11:24 AM
GREAT poem about the life and times of Jesus! I really liked the bottom lines: "Herod was threatened by a new born king. did not understand the implications. He thought the new king was for Israel But he was king of all the nations." Peace, love and blessings, John Michael

Joseph Remembers Christmas (Poetry) - 12/23/2012 4:16:37 PM

You say things that ought ot be said, Larry. Too many looking for things to find fault with and not enough looking for common ground. Chip Bergeron

Turkey Vulters at Camp (Poetry) - 8/3/2012 5:40:16 AM
Wonderful rhyme and flow. Enjoyed.

Turkey Vulters at Camp (Poetry) - 7/29/2012 10:56:59 AM
Vultures are an choice for a children's poem. Do we prolong a child's innocence (ignorance) when we portray vultures as some kind of benevolent creatures rather than what they really do–clean up diseased carrion from dead animals. Ron

Turkey Vulters at Camp (Poetry) - 7/29/2012 4:59:51 AM
An ugly bird are those that u speak, never really thought of them as creatures of God too, but I guess we all are what we are, Just don't let them get you in their beak...e

Turkey Vulters at Camp (Poetry) - 7/28/2012 4:05:02 PM
This is a sweet poem for children, Larry! Not many would personalize turkey buzzards the way you have. After all, they're not exactly known for their beauty. I'm sure the campers would appreciate God's wonders in nature more after hearing this cute little rhyme with a birds' eye view. Connie

Birthday Wishes for My Country (Poetry) - 7/4/2012 1:54:45 PM
I like this piece very much. Especially the "...try to get along/with people who have other views/" Bringing about good news....that is the key all right. Change the view from bad news to good news and see what happens. Thank you. ~~Diana

Birthday Wishes for My Country (Poetry) - 7/4/2012 8:22:53 AM
It's still the greatest country in the world to live in. If it wasn't for our freedom we wouldn't have so many viewpoints on every subject under the sun like whether or not to celebrate with fireworks when so many parts of the country are so dry. Let's hope that the only fireworks we see in our skies are those of celebrations like this and not battle like Francis Scott Key. Ron

When Jesus Woke Up in the Tomb (Poetry) - 4/10/2012 5:53:46 PM
I never thought of it before, Larry. I'm glad you did. This is a very moving poem about Jesus and His real emotions. Connie

When Jesus Woke Up in the Tomb (Poetry) - 4/10/2012 11:30:14 AM

A Pure Heart (Poetry) - 3/15/2012 4:32:26 PM
...message seems to be with this numerical sequence: we'll always be one card short of a full deck until we let the Lord purify our heart... "playing solitaire there, with a deck of 51, don't tell me, I got nothing to do..." haha... Lord bless you with greater insight and wisdom... like the book of James says, all we need to do is ask in faith, nothing wavering... Nice little poem, larry... Roger

Creation Sings Praise (Poetry) - 3/15/2012 9:03:27 AM
To anyone observant and thoughtful, paaise should be organic, like eating, sleeping or breathing. Unfortunately, I reach that level only occasioanlly. When I do, I'm overwhelmed by a sense of deep appreciaztion that defies any poor form of expression I can give it. The Spirit knoes...the Spirit knows... Chip Bergeron

Creation Sings Praise (Poetry) - 3/13/2012 4:38:22 AM
So listen to the world’s chorus and dance with all creatures on earth proclaiming the greatness of God. and telling the world of His worth. Wonderful sentiments; I only wish more would heed them. I've spent the last three days watching and listening to migrating sandhill cranes overhead making their way from Florida to Wisconsin. Creation is so marvelous, if we only open our eyes and ears and souls.

Lift Your Arms If You're Sure (Poetry) - 3/12/2012 2:53:30 PM

Distracted By His Cell (Poetry) - 3/12/2012 1:44:42 PM
People seem to be so insecure about their place in the herd that they have this desperaste need to stay connected. Unfortunately that insecurity has its cost, sometimes even csting peoples'lives. I'd say there ought to be a law, but there are too many of them already, and the ones that do the most good are often ignored. Chip Bergeron

The Old Country Road (Poetry) - 3/11/2012 11:32:12 AM
I'm glad I lived in town all a long. However, from time to time, I do recall encountering muddy roads and mud holes that would swallow a car and make traveling difficult. Fortunately, friendly farmers were always about to help pull you out. Ron

The Old Country Road (Poetry) - 3/11/2012 4:01:29 AM
I must admit that I prefer old country roads to super highways, even today, when I'm out traveling and nature watching. But I have gotten bogged down on a few of them.

The Old Country Road (Poetry) - 3/10/2012 5:58:46 PM
We lived in a shore town, right on the beach overlooking the ocean...we had good paved roads but alot of high tides to deal could look out our front window and see small row boats going down the main that WAS a site for a little kid...e

How Majestic Is Your Name. (Poetry) - 3/8/2012 4:02:36 AM
Perhaps what makes God majestic is something not found in a name but in the beauty of this earth This I've always believed; yet today we seem intent on destroying it all.

Ads OnTV (Poetry) - 3/4/2012 10:18:00 AM
I guess you need one of those things designed for every man's needs. I have found myself growing accustomed to constant interruptions and watching the commercials more than the show. Ron

No commercials? A dream come true! Though I wouldn't mind them as much if they didn't blast out louder than the program I was trying to watch. Connie

Poems for Money (Poetry) - 2/18/2012 10:04:24 AM
Your poem made me smile. Very clever, and ain't that the truth. I've let many people use my poems for so many different things and I never ask for money for the use of my work. I'm sponsoring a poetry contest to raise money for Riley Hospital for Children that has a prize of $100 and the winning poem being displayed for one month in the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home.

Ouch! When I can't find my glasses, I don't dare put anything in my eyes, on my face, or on my armpits. But even when I do, my wife still says I smell like Dog!

Lift Your Arms If You're Sure (Poetry) - 2/12/2012 6:05:56 PM
This is great, Larry! Good job writing, and it hits home. I think we've all done similar things at times. As a matter of fact, I cleaned my glasses with vanilla-scented air freshener spray recently as I was driving somewhere. Everything's funnier when you can laugh at yourself! Connie

Lift Your Arms If You're Sure (Poetry) - 2/12/2012 5:29:40 PM

Distracted By His Cell (Poetry) - 2/3/2012 8:04:45 AM
i don't know what's so important, people can't wait to get off the road to text or call ... it's illegal in NY but i see it all the time ...

Distracted By His Cell (Poetry) - 2/2/2012 7:51:15 AM
Larry, in the state of Oregon it is illegal to talk on your cell phone while driving (unless you have one of those hands free devices) What you could have done is dialed 911, reporting the drivers erratic driving with a small child in the car. Nice write. Cheers, Dan

Distracted By His Cell (Poetry) - 2/2/2012 7:24:35 AM
Nice one Larry. I too have received calls while I was driving, but I no longer answer them because,,,, no matter how hard you try, you cannot help but become distracted. When you are piloting several thousand pounds of killing machine, distracted is the last thing you need to be. Thanks for the reminder. Dick

Matthew 25 Revisited (Poetry) - 1/20/2012 1:51:30 PM
Larry: Extremely powerful poem. To me, one's relationship to Christ is not measured by how mny times one responds to an invitatyion, says the sinners' prayer, gives his testimony or anything else. That criterion is well do I fulfill the straightforward conditions in Matthew 25. It's so simple, but people make it so difficult. We'd rather do the showy thing that entails no real work than come to grips with our innate sinfulness and selfishness and do real business with God and for God. Chip Bergeron

I NEVER put up decorations, and I really try to remember God is the reason for the season, but I don't do a very good job of it...I seem to find that only when we really need help do we remember God, but I have to wonder if He then truly even listens as we rarely talk to Him any other time...can't blame Him for not doing so...Peace & a Merry Christmas to you & yours, Larry............ed

Making Up With My Car (Poetry) - 11/23/2011 8:21:40 AM
Just sold my old Mustang convertible. I had put only 13,000 miles on her in 9 years. Sometimes she just sat there week after week and she had begun getting pretty sassy too.

Making Up With My Car (Poetry) - 11/21/2011 12:13:49 PM
I know THE feeling about the car letting you down. Thankfully, my most recent encounter with the mechanic was one that left me in 'stitches.' They couldn't figure out what was wrong, so they took a hammer to the part that was giving me trouble (my head and tail lights), gave it a couple of whacks and now it is working just fine. Go figure.

Ur car really deserves a break, Maybe while you are laid up, You can just bake it a cake, Mobile one oil to a car is like a steak, Then when the time comes to get back in her, She won't scoff & drive you into a lake...

Hitchhiker and Old Lady (Poetry) - 11/2/2011 6:27:30 AM
He who inspired you to write this poem has brought tears to my eyes. I see a little bit of me in this woman, for while my all my sons have gone to heaven ... I try to do for those less fortunate (especially young & old men) since I can no longer provide assistance to my sons. Sorry, didn't mean to go on and on, but it is hard to stop writing as the tears flow.

Rain (Poetry) - 8/10/2011 5:04:05 AM
As a life-long nature watcher and wilderness trekker, I'd have to say that the droughts, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and heat waves are now getting worse, each year. Is it global warming? Did we actually cause this? I'm not sure, but I do know that our world is rapidly changing today, as shown in my sad post this morning - Where Have All The Glaciers Gone. I now sadly believe that one future day, fresh water may be more valuable than gold.

Rain (Poetry) - 8/8/2011 9:40:26 PM
You are so right, Larry. I'm with Jerry. Every year we have the hot summer, cold winter, you would think people would have realized that by now, lol. Loved this.

Rain (Poetry) - 8/8/2011 6:38:43 PM
Oh thank you, thank you, Larry, I get so weary of the constant crying over the weather, and it is all manipulated and promoted by the cry-baby media. Yes, it is hot, it gets hot each year, and the south has druoughs. The news media has been manipulated into making news items and never delve into real which they ignore completely goes unreported like the racially influence beatings at the Wisconsin State Fair. Sorry for getting a bit political, but it was unavoidable.

Instead of what's your social security #. It's short quick phrases with lack of thought behind it! lol! I guess people don't want to talk much anymore and often times don't say what they really mean!

Nice poem Larry, Funny thing is, the older you get, the less you seem to know, the more you know you have to learn. That's how He hard wired us, I think. Chip Bergeron

Bookish ways are a foolish maze, or so they says... but what do they know. Still and all, I thrill to the call of the old school bell. There is something in me, down deep within, arising from a place no one can tell. It's that something that pulls me, draws me, lures me, back to the knell of that old school bell. Your poem captures it well. Somewhat abashed, regretful, disarmed. Still I long for the sound of that old school bell... the life it is ripe, full of luster and charmed. Nice of you to share of what school used to be... makes me think of summer, when from school we are free!

Would love to go back to school now that I find out, with age, that I don't know everything I did when I was a teenager...

Yeah, Larry: There's something ironic about an obese physician trying to get me to lose weight... God bless, Chip Bergeron

If it's fun, tastes good, gives comfort then it must be illegal and someone will soon find out and if they can't get a law passed then they can find someone to sign off on a new regulation. Love it. Liz

If you might recall, two summers ago, I was in a coma for 8 days and during that time the hospital "flushed" off like a hundred and twenty pounds off of my stout, read VERY fat, frame...Since I have yet to get back to the 280 I was before then, but I am up over 230...But I have also been told that 225 is my "ideal" weight & if I was over 25 pounds heavier (250) then I would be considered obese...what all this means is beyond the realm of my understanding as it is apparently so for you as well...just live with yourself till you die, then you will lose lots of weight...;-) ed
