Friday Contemplations

Less than a took less than a week for every flat surface in my house to become cluttered...after my bi-annual holiday clean-up.  The reason I know the clutter is creeping back is that a phone rang and we could not find it. We weren't sure whose it was... we have 4 including the land line.  We called it twice, I kept saying it was in his chair, and it was.  In the process we knocked off the land line, a popcorn bowl (with old maids in it) and empty pill bottles.  I now have to move furniture to vacuum it up.

Sparkle Plenty-Mama Kat's


Sparkle, Shimmer, Glisten
Bright twinkle in his eyes, like diamonds,
Smiles come bursting forth
Giggles long suppressed, bubble up
He jumps up, arms wide open
Grandma’s here!
Sparkle, Shimmer, Glisten
Tears well in my eyes, like diamonds. 
I fold him in my arms
Laughter fills the air
My heart is home.
Grandma’s here!

Rain on the Window-Write on Edge
Crack!  Lightening ignites the evening sky.

“1 second, 2 seconds…Wow, that was close,” cries Toni aloud as the thunder rolls.
A second later the power snaps off, leaving her office in the dark. Toni moves from her desk to the window. She watches as rain pours out of the sky, leaving murky rivulets of rainwater on the window.  She sees lights flicker off, all over the low buildings surrounding the nearly empty parking lot.

Mama's Shaking-Writers Workshop

DD2 was about 7, and athletically inclined.  She likes tether ball and the monkey bars at school, she plays her version of handball against the garage door for hours at a time. The '84 Olympics were in Los Angeles that year and she was entranced by gymnastics and Mary Lou Retton.  She is lobbying for  tumbling classes so she can be a star too.

Dona Nobis Pacem-Grant Us Peace

Peace, a Noble Ideal, 
What a beautiful thought.
Blogging together,
We could cause,
Peace to break out,
All over the World.

Key Largo-Saturday 9

1) This song was inspired by the Bogart/Bacall movie of the same name. Do you have a favorite Humphrey Bogart film? Which one? 
African Queen with Katherine Hepburn a classic.  Not to mention Casablanca, would seem heretical, however to me, it is only ok.

2) Where do you rent mov

What's been going on, you ask?

We are looking for a Class C RV and Mr BC spends hours on end looking and dreaming .  Last night he found one that just got posted on Craigslist.  We answered with an e-mail and we are going to look at it today.  I am going to be the voice of reason if we like it, and not let him buy it right away, we are going to go home and think about it, if we like it.  If it is good as it looks it is going to be hard, because it is just what we are looking for at a good price.  We put a deposit down. It was perfect.
