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

The older you get
 More thoughts you can forget
I looked in the dictionary
Someone said it is also a Lexicon
 Isn't that Little people in Ireland?
Anyway! I looked up the meaning of Alzheimer's
I was going to tell you what it said
But I forgot!
Saw this lady walk by
Asked her if she knew what Alzheimer's was
She said, "You have it!"
"How do you know?"
"You asked me my name I am your wife."
I thought she looked familar
The neighbor boy is now ten
I have known him since birth
Introduced him as "Ford"
He said, "My name is Hudson!"
Give me credit I knew it was a car
This old timer thing
Introduced him to Brother in Law Ted
Called him Ed
I knew there was an Ed in there someplace
Never forget a face
It is so nice you get to meet new people all the time
And the older you get you have baby thoughts
This strange women said, "I draw the line
at changing your diapers!"
"Are you my care giver?"
"No Ninny, we have been married 55 years."
It's coming back to me her name is---?
It's coming back to me--!
I didn't know my name was Ninny?
"Shari--the dawn is breaking!--Shari!"
Whats really nice it is a new day everyday
Worked in the garden yesterday
I was counting spiders and ants
Taking Shari to the dance
Oh no, I was watering the plants.
A yellow crab showed up on my computer screen
I call him Ninny and he looks just like me
Can't laugh at yourself
Who can you laugh at?
Reality
