Tuesday Chatter 92

Hey, the Tuesday Chatter Cafe is humming with chatter! Join us in our cozy cafe where the world is muted at eleventy oclock.  Enjoy your cuppa as we dwell on thought-provoking and undeniably doubtful drivel.

“In general people put too much faith in the rich, the famous, the politicians, and not enough faith in themselves.” Bono

  • Bits and Pieces

TWA declares bankruptcy, the Minnesota Mall of America is under construction on 78 acres, Euro Disney debuts in France, McDonald’s debuts in Beijing China, the Georgia Superdome in Atlanta finishes construction claiming the largest cable supported fabric roof, the first nicotine patch is introduced for those who want to quit smoking.

Average cost of a new house $122,500.00, average annual income $30,030.00, average monthly rent $519.00. The cost of a gallon of gas $1.05 and the average cost of new car $16,950.00.

  • An ounce of politics

Ross Perot announces he will run in the election with Bill Clinton and President Bush, Bill Clinton elected President, Princess Diana and Prince Charles separate.

  • Slang it, dang it

Whatever; Yadda, Yadda, Yadda; YO

  • Weather events

Turkey shakes with 6.8 on the Richter Scale, part of Windsor Castle is damaged by fire-furniture, books and works of art are destroyed by the fire, two strong quakes shake the desert area east of Los Angeles.

  • Hurricane Andrew begins with a hit on the Bahamas, makes landfall in South Florida and then strikes Southern Louisiana. Hurricane Andrew packed winds of 175 MPH and was a category 5 hurricane. At the time, the hurricane was the costliest natural disaster in US history later surpassed by Hurricane Katrina on 2005.

Hurricane Andrew hit South Florida on August 22nd. My husband, now deceased, and I lived in Hollywood, Fl and owned an insurance agency.  We were on an Alaskan cruise during the time the hurricane hit. I remember a sad and sinking feeling when we returned. The destruction was devastating and so many lives were turned upside down.

We made many water and food runs to our clients and those that were directly in the path of the storm, in South Florida and Southern Louisiana. We saw total leveling of neighborhoods, businesses and even parking lots. Hot and humid weather complicated the cleanup due to mold spores in structures left standing. Abd to add to the misery, there was widespread power outages, which made existing unbearable.

  Blurry snapshots of life

Cause confusion and strife

  Life’s not tied with a bow

Watch where you dip your toe

Journeys may go adrift

But life’s still a gift

Don’t squint to find the golden egg

Do the boogie with oldpegleg

Hey, you know I’m smitten

Coz I found a lost mitten

 A crucial piece of the puzzle

The prize a decadent truffle

Do you want to dance

or draw a Monopoly Chance

Is it me, myself and me

or me, myself and I

Behold the idyllic life and apple pie

-Eugenia

  6. The sinking feeling is even greater now, when mass killings are organized by human beings, not nature. You are right when you say, “Life’s not tied with a bow Watch where you dip your toe.”

  7. Thank you for the smile with your witty little poem. Indeed these days we’ve got to watch where we dip our toes, and wherever that may be, may we find peace there.
