Superior Scribbler Award...

Mark graced me with an award. Thank you, dear!

(I'm still trying to figure out how to load the image. duh)

He got his award from Becky.

I am supposed to pass the award to five other bloggers.
Crap. I can easily come up with ten or twenty or more.

I'll go with these this time...

Bill and Bob's

Hoosier Boy




These five are supposed to give the award to five
of their favorite scribblers.

Limericks are not my forte...

but, I'll give it a try for Dr. Zeus
and his contest at his blog 'William the Coroner'.

He gave a choice of two topics... Primate or Prime Mate.

my entry:

There once was a great ape named Harry,
who was searching for his soul mate to marry.
He traveled the world,
visiting zoo after zoo,
but tearfully cried "They're too hairy!"

William awards a care package sent to one of our
soldiers serving in harm's way.

We have until Friday to make this interesting. Go.

What a great Saturday...

This weekend in these parts is BiketoberFest.

Bunches and bunches (estimated 100,000) of
two-wheelers roaring into and around town for
most of three days.

Of all the tourist types we get every year, I like
these folks the most.

This time it was super-extra-special because one
of my most favoritist people in da woild rode his bike
from Jacksonville and took time to visit with me.

Mick and I had lunch and chatted and laughed for, oh...
about three hours on the beachside. Helluva great time.
He has a real purdy bike but since I am a chicken shit
with anything that has less than three wheels, he did his
cruising first and saved the best for last. Meaning, me.
I hated to see him go.

Hey, Mick... we still need to meet up at Cross Creek sometime, too.

Thank you for a wonderful day, my friend.

Light haiku...

Obviously, experiencing brain-fartitis tonight.

If you are reading this after 10 pm Wednesday, then
you are too late to enter Sparrow's Haiku Contest
for this week, at least.

The chosen topic is ...LIGHT...

My entries:

awake from dreams, my
fear is soothed as full moon beams
pierce midnight shadow.


Blonde is light. Light is
good. Therefore, blonde is good, right?
Nothing more needs said.

Apologies to all for my tardiness. However,
tomorrow you should all remember to go
back to All Atwitter so you can vote for your
favorite haiku. ok? Please?

He is accepting entries through Friday of this

Go here and let him be dazzled by Jean's people.

Invisible wounds...

Elizabeth's sister
isn't the same anymore.
Her husband went to war.

He came back whole
but aching inside.
He sits in shadow
and cries.

"There's no one left." says he.
"I'm still here." says she.
"I can hear their pain."
"Your son wants to play."
"This isn't what he should see."

"We want you at home. Please,
don't leave us alone."
"I'll be back when I can."
The door closed.

Elizabeth's sister
isn't the same anymore.
She sits in shadow.
And cries.

Haiku of You...

Sparrow is back from Switzerland and is
reorganizing her weekly haiku contest.
'Cept now, it's every other week, alternating
with William the Coroner and his limerick contest.

Her topic for this week is YOU.
That's right. Make a haiku about yourself.

Wonder if mine should be with or without meds?

My entries:

You (me)...

I am creating
my own niche in life since I
don't fit what I see.

The things that make me,
me, are possibly the same
things that you can't stand.

I am one of you,
of us, of them, striving for
my identity.

UPDATE: Please go visit Sparrow's again and
vote for your favorite haiku before 10 pm tonight.
