Tuesday Chatter Weekly – June 13, 2016


“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
― Thomas A. Edison

So out with the old and in with new

By keeping my sights in a broadened view

Time can warp a mind into worrisome channels

Dimming the lights at the end of the tunnels

Please let me grow older without being confused

And, let me be useful without being used

Growing older can be quite a scare

If you wait too long to show you care

For me, a birthday is drawing near

Which I will welcome without fear

Of years gone by I prefer not to dwell

My numbered years I shall not tell

So out with the old and in with the new

Keeps me young from my point of view


 June 17th, being my birthday, is the 168th day of the year, leaving 197 days until the end of the year.  Those lucky enough to be born in June have three birthstones!

The pearl which is the only gem of living sea creatures and require no faceting or polishing to reveal its natural beauty.


The Alexandrite, an extremely rare chrysoberyl with chameleon-like qualities. Its color is a lovely green in both daylight and fluorescent light; it changes color to a purplish red in incandescent light.


The third stone is Moonstone. A phenomenal gemstone, moonstones show a floating play of light (called adularescence) and sometimes show either a multi-rayed star or a cat’s eye.


The zodiac sign for June is Gemini – June May 21 to June 20. Those bearing the Gemini zodiac are incredibly flexible people who can adapt to almost any situation. They also possess a tenacity that not only enables them to rise above major setbacks but to take full advantage of negative situations as well. Inherently curious, Geminis are also experts at unraveling mysteries of any sort.


This is Tuesday Chatter, a weekly event where you can leave the link to your blog, giving others a chance to appreciate your talents. Here’s the link for the how-tos. TuesdayChatter
