Tuesday Chatter 72



While we’re having coffee, let’s take a break from what we can’t control. Sometimes pointless chatter can eventually take on a form of positive energy. The world is ours to keep. Let’s reap what we sow and sow what we reap.

1972, a black year in history due to the Munich Olympics Terrorist attack, Governor George Wallace is shot, Bloody Friday and Bloody Sunday in Ireland. Also, many deaths due inclement weather events –  earthquake destroys most of Bingol, Turkey – more than 1000 dead, 10,000 homeless, earthquake in southern Iraq – more than 5000 dead, Hurricane Agnes creates destruction in the states of Pa, NY, Md and Va – 117 dead, Earthquake in Nicaragua – 5,000-10,000 dead in the capital Managua.

 Mother Nature has yet to design

Snapshot weather favoring mankind

Her fickle ways dictate our days

Her fickle ways dictates who pays

Camouflaged skies to survive the night

Her chameleon wardrobe can be a fright

And scorching costs appraise our loss

An iffy persona still displays who’s boss

Winds huffing and puffing, the roof undone

Spring has sprung birds songs are sung

The river is dry parched is our land

The sun rises and sets over golden sand

Stressed trees undressed and gossips stare

Beauty strikes gold fall’s in the air

Unrelentless cold the ground is numb

Snow angels frolic shaping winter fun

Mother Nature has yet to design

Tick the box and all will be fine

A puzzling spirit to never resign

  1. Another stroll down memory lane – but I had forgotten the many tragedies of that year – and the forshadowing of those to come. Life expectancy 71.2 years jumped out at me.

    Sorry to ring in with the negative but, in researching something else, I just learned that science has determined that – for the first time in the history of man’s existence – the life expectancy for the offspring of those alive today has gone DOWN – mostly due to the rise in toxins and pollutants as the result of missing or inadequate regulation. Credible genetic researchers are extremely concerned about human genetic mutations as a result of GMOs – especially about naturally occurring cross-pollination with RoundUp Ready crops. The science will blow your mind.

    While we all need to stay centered and think positively, we ALSO need to become informed and be willing to step up and speak truth to power – repeatedly and often. America’s current administration clearly needs an education in science basics they are unlikely to undertake – so we must make it CLEAR how we need and expect them to vote on our behalf if they want to keep their jobs.

  2. 1972, a long time ago. I was 8 back then, and still remember watching the Eurovision Song Contest where we were represented by Sandra and Andres, singing a song called “if it’s about love” . We still had the “gulden” as a currency and not the euro. And The Osmonds with Crazy Horses was number one in the hit parade for weeks!

  6. The years have a lot in them and so much of it is forgotten. I know I have forgotten more than I remember. Thanks for posting a link to Day of Grace. Very nice of you.


  7. I like the way you compile exact information, I remember only approximations. The poem is thought provoking.

  8. Love this..I recall the Timex watch I don’t think I ever got, but my sister sure got one. My first Wrangler jeans was one I remember, because I sold my mom’s poetry book door to door to buy it. Yes, memories, wow.

    • You’re not alone in your love for Wrangler jeans. I am still a major fan of jeans and since I retired, jeans are my wardrobe staple. Any brand will do, as long as they are reasonably priced, fit well and no holes. 🙂


  9. Thank you for your support, Patricia.
