Autumn with berry

Certain discoveries were made today at the lunch table…

“Look mom!  A head with a hat!”

~Autumn Cook (Age 8)

I never knew blueberries and raspberries could look like people.  Lol…  😉

Blogger friend Trent, from Trent’s World has graciously given us a new word to add to the dictionary.  Compty is the word, and it means… wanting to comment on a blog post but coming up empty when you try.  So here’s a poem I promised to write about it.  And just in case you missed it, this goes along with last night’s Midnight Madness; which you can check out here.

 

Compty

Is a very unique word

One you’ve probably

Never even heard

 

It’s a word made up

By our blogger friend Trent

Who decided to tell me

What this awesome word meant

 

So have no fear

This magical word is now here

Its meaning is simple and easy

And won’t leave you feeling queasy

 

It has to do with

Wanting to comment on a blog

During those frustrating times

When your brain is in a fog

 

It’s then that you can’t quite

Figure out what to say

So you just end up leaving

And going on your merry way

 

So thank you Trent

For sharing your word

It really is lovely

And not at all absurd

 

It’s too bad nobody else

Was brave enough to submit any more

Get with the program all you other bloggers

And don’t be such a bore!  😉

Thought we were sort of due for another question and answer game tonight.  So…

If you could add one word to the dictionary, what would it be and what would it mean?

 

P.S.  I will choose one of the answers and write a poem about it tomorrow.  So think of a good one!  I can’t wait to see all of your responses.  ~M

Death of a clothes dryer…

564073_467240713303768_2012967538_n

Oh the poor dryer just went

It was part of a very nice set

But after fourteen years of nonevent

It finally decided to blow a gasket

The heavy loads it underwent

Caused it to rust and dent

And now I must lament

Over the money that must be spent

For there’s no way to circumvent

A dryer which has gone to this extent

Oh why must life be hell bent

In bringing such discontent

I guess I should reinvent

And make a dryer that’s tough as cement

Then maybe I’ll make a few cents

Out of a rather frustrating event

And if this becomes a reoccurring incident

They’ll have to send me to a convent

Where I’ll be forced to repent

For the bad words I’m about to vent

#MidnightMadness – 4/29/2017

Thoughts on failure…

I don’t think I fail because I’m a failure, but rather I fail because I’m an overachiever.  One who sets personal goals extremely high, setting myself up for failure every single time.

What about you?  Do you do this too?  ~M

Some thoughts on friendship…

A new friend often wishes you well.

An old friend can only hope you are well.

A good friend asks you regularly if you are well.

A best friend makes sure you most certainly are well, and then socks you in the arm or starts a pillow fight if you aren’t.  😉

The Crazies – Writing 201: Poetry (Day 7 – Neighborhood, Ballad, Assonance)

Funny-Rednecks-31

The Crazies

The Crazies as it’s defined
Is a neighborhood of all kinds
Here is some of what you’ll find…

A pastor who is always scheming
A polygamist who is usually beaming

A newlywed couple who are active and fit
A snobby white guy who acts like a twit

A homeschooling mother who hides in her house
A serial killer who is quiet as a mouse

A traveling duo who live the good life
An old geezer who has no wife

A preppy family with a dog named bogey
An obsessive control freak who is always smoking a stogie

A hoity-toity couple who spoil their dog
A girl who likes to write stories and blog

And last but not least let’s not forget the seniors
Or the girls that lay in the grass, we call them dreamers

All of these people can be found on our street
So come visit sometime, I’ll save you a seat!
