WHEN I'M 64

 

I was thinking about the question “why”?

My granddaughter is about to be two years of age in a couple of months and in a couple of months I shall be 64.

WHEN I'M 64!

So I have constructed a scenario where I might read to her from Homer or whatever without pix and without media!

And she will not sit on my lap!

Why do you like me?

Well I have many reasons why I like you, but today I will give you five reasons why I like you!

Five.

Do you know five? [Read more]

Dems Are Dogs, Repubs Are Cats: An Allegory?

So, I'm in the kitchen. All four dogs are in the kitchen with me. It's morning and that means it's time for cookies. The dogs all know this and they do not let it slip my mind. Ever.

All four furry dog butts are planted on the tiled floor in a row, all four tails going back and forth like they are competing in a synchronized tail wagging contest. Their expectant looks always make me smile and this scene is always the perfect way to start my day. [Read more]

A Pi-Eyed Friday Afternoon at the Haikulodeon

 

 

Here's this week's heap of haikus:

 

Once a year, Pi day
comes around. It should be squared.
But never mind that.

( 3-14 is Pi day. )

The bare trees seem poised,
waiting for Spring to arrive.
Spring is running late.

tanka haiku: When snow turns to ice,
and bitter winds sting my face,
I think of baseball.

For Spring is getting nearer
and Umps soon will shout, "Play Ball!"

The Ballad of Baby and Klepto Ray

In March of 2009, Baby had just flown cross-country from visiting her sister in Seattle, bringing a rubbing of Jimi Hendrix's headstone, and a nice chunk of hash which she had tucked into a private place available only to ladies.  While she and I were upstairs at the farm enjoying some quality time, our then host, Ray, pocketed the hash.  Naturally she went nuts thinking she had simply lost it, and finally left the farm to return home.  Ray proudly produced the hash.  I told him I was gonna tell Baby he had it so she wouldn't feel like an incompetent nutjob.
