“From Here to Eternity,” sighed Patsy, “that’s a classic love scene on the beach.”
“I reckon so,” replied Pete, “but don’t get any ideas.”
Frowning, Patsy scrubbed the endless sink of dishes, pondering why Pete had burst her bubble. She adored her Pete but wondered why he couldn’t be more romantic.
Coming up behind his bride, Pete wrapped his arms around her waist and kissed her neck, “Of course it’s because I love you so much. After all, you know how if you lay on the beach where the tide rolls in you’re bound to get sand in your saddle and, woo wee, that’s some itchin’!”
1. Friday of a long weekend. Even home bound is a.o.k. With family joy.
2. Poet’s Connection tomorrow! Virtual fun!
3. Poet’s gathering last night where we worked to help each other.
4. The sun 🌞peeked out today.
5. I have not succumbed to a coronacut.
6. Yarn. Something is getting made.
8. Wildlife is lively.
dark feelings engulf trepidation clouds senses imprisons present
inner core ruptures scorching lava sizzles out wreaks crimson umbrage
quintessence consumed drowned in infernal abyss extinct emotions
a veneer disguise contrived emotions displayed dubious motives
lonesome soul cringes a foreboding gloom pervades silent cry echoes

1. Who is that masked man/woman/child? It would be us! I am grateful for masks. I made some by hand and they aren’t too shabby. Daughter must have one for work and I made some of socks and then 2. the AAA guy gave one to my sweetie. Guess he didn’t love the sock (the AAA man). I need to make a couple more as daughter needs them for work and she has to alternate because of washing. 3. I am grateful she brought home fabric and notions so I could make them.
4. See the picture on this blog up there? That would be the scene of this weekend, but we are not ready to venture out. But! It is beautiful weather, so we can still go out and about with careful social distancing and masks, so YAY!!
This happened! I received my signed copy this week from Arlene Bice. Editor of this book of anthologies. She put her heart and soul into making this happen. Here is her blog: Purple Stone Blog. Five of my poems were published in this anthology. You can click on the pic to see more. I am grateful for Arlene.
7. SLEEP! I got some sleep this week.
8. Cardinals and birds, in general. While working on something challenging I heard this loud chirping and looked out the window and saw this brillant red cardinal. I think he was trying to tell me to keep at it, it will work out! Thank you!
9. ZOOM rooms and Google Hangout! This is the bestest thing for meetings! I have been able to meet with others at places I cannot get to. WOOHOO!!
10. And YOU! What do you have to say today? Let’s hear from you!
Come join me for some virtual coffee!
