Weather Events

San Fernando Valley shakes due to a 6.7 magnitude quake, 286,000 acres in Montana destroyed by violent wildfires, Southeastern US suffers damage from tornadoes

Flippity flap and this and that

Allow yourself a pat on the back

Whisper your lines you’ll be fine

No backward talk no ceilings in life

Walk the walk and end all strife

Reset the pecks the woodpecker pecks

Connect the dots for your daily treks

If you learn to do nothing

Does that mean its something

No need to dwell on a false dichotomy

Facts are blurred and lack profundity

Don’t sleepwalk blindly into the morrow

Perception is something one can borrow

    Can I borrow some perception Eugenia. Apparently men have differing perceptions to women, or so my ex wife’s legal team said 🙂 Loved the poem.

      I love your comment, Davy, and I’m glad you enjoyed my poem. I believe men and women’s perceptions of each other can become easily confused. There seems to be too much pressure from others and what they think.

        So true Eugenia. I have given up trying to work it out. We should just embrace whatever comes along.

    The poem is elegantly superb!

    I can tell you have lots of knowledge of the 90’s era. You and I have a lot in common when it comes to the 90’s. The O.J. Simpson Ford Bronco chase was the highlight of that year. I remember it like it was yesterday.

      Yes, I remember it well and now OJ will be out of jail in October. An ongoing saga.

      Yep, the advances in technology just in the last 10 years are amazing.

    I wonder if gas will get back to $1.09 a gallon. It seems hard to believe it was that low, however, when I was a teenager it was only twenty-five cents.

      I remember those days, as well. We filled up yesterday at 2.08 a gallon and that was discounted due to our fuel points from Kroger.

    1994… some things I remember well, and other things I don’t recall at all,Eugenia. It also feels like it was only a couple of years ago… but 23??? Wow.

      I agree some of the memories seem like yesterday and others are just a blur. I believe it depends on how we relate to the events that took place.

        …and, I’d add, how often the events are repeated in the news! 🙂

    Perception can be borrowed, but our microprocessors give different results.

      Hey, no problem Tena. I’m delighted when you visit and understand that you are very busy.

    I learn quite a bit from your Tuesday’s chatter. Like a mini history lesson 🙂
