TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF MY LIFE

A GOOD DAY IS WHEN THE FAMILY IS ALL TOGETHER

THE STATE OF STATES!

DON'T MESS WITH VETERANS

BROTHERHOOD OF VETERANS



POETRY

I WAS THINKING OF GIVING A WEATHER REPORT

LOVE AND WATCH OUT FOR THE SALT SHAKER

RUDE AND INCONSIDERATE POETS

ABUSED CHILDREN CHARITY

SOOTY GREY-Dreamweaver

REALITY IS

DANCING WITH THE BOGGEYMAN

THE OLDER YOU GET

WOULDN'T IT BE NICE

I WAS NEVER PERFECT

TAKING SIDES

SOMEWHAT MATURITY

IT'S THE FOURTH

NO TEARS FALLING FROM THIS PROUD CHIEFS EYES

SENSE OF HUMOR

ELVIS AND THE SEATTLE WORLDS FAIR

DON'T LOVE YOU ANY MORE

AINT OLDTIMERS WONDERFUL?

FOURTH OF JULY FIREWORKS

GOD'S COUNTY

RETURNING THIS TO A POETRY SITE

SILENT ARE THE SOUNDS

COULD NOT LET THIS GO BY

THINGS BOTHERING ME

ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL

79 years old
The Doctor asked,
"Do you have troubles with
Urination or bowel movements?"
I answered,
"Depends---!"


Some not good health news. Had ultrasound on leg.
She found some blood clots. Already taking blood thinners.
They are on it. But Doc said if I had my fall down the stairs
today I would be dead. Cannot with this medicine do much
for bleeding in the brain.So lucky mine is not working that
well anyway. Kids under seventyfive, take it one day at a time.

Having an awful week. Fertilizer and chick weed killer on the
lawn. Too much in spots lawn died. Chick weeds are laughing.
The grass sprung from the ground and the lawn mover picked
this week to fately die. Went to Grandson's graduation. Son parked
and front tire went flat. Big tire not easily fixed. Only good news.
Graduation from a top rated high school. Very strong academically.
Half dozen kids with 4.0 grade averages. Ryan in the top ten
nationally in grade point. Not bad considering hockey travel
and practices have left him little time to study.
It is finally sunshining.
I am going out to stir up those little blood cells.

After renewed visit. Blood pressure is now stable swelling
has gone down in ankle. Always a worry clot well break and
take off on a vacation to the lungs. Wife has been sick and
coughing three days now. I need to be the caretaker. Old
age is not fun.
