Tuesday Chatter Weekly – September 18, 2017


Welcome to Tuesday Chatter Cafe!

1997 was an interesting year for me. I left Florida and moved to Marlton, New Jersey in November 1995. Marlton is a census-designated unincorporated community located in Evesham Township, New Jersey. The background of Marlton and Evesham Township is quite interesting and should you want to delve into some history here is the link Evesham Township, New Jersey.

Marlton is about 20 minutes from Philadelphia, which we would frequent the shops, restaurants, and bars on South Street. I loved it because it was a whole new experience for me. I adored the change of the seasons and since my favorite season is fall, I fell in love with Marlton. Fall festivals were in abundance and enticing aromas of fall would fill the air. The weather was crisp and cool and I could wear my favorite fall clothes.

This time in my life was an interesting chapter and I will chat more about Marlton, and the North American Blizzard of 1996 in my next Tuesday Chatter.

Disquieted by recent events

Where’s the common sense

So much hurry and flurry

A clock face paled and blurry

Paperdoll sheeple lead the parade

So proud of their masquerade

Masking faces and playing aces

 Don’t have a name but have a game

Asking where to lay the blame

The playground bully is an adult

A master of the word insult

Let’s clink cups before time’s up

And chat about wazzup

Have you heard of fake news

Can it be accused

Is mindfulness a lost art

We’d know if we were smart

  1. Thanks for taking me down memory lane every week, as i recount what was happening in my life. Princess Diana’s death moved everybody in the world. It was not just a news item, ‘Candle in the wind’ by Elton John was telecast everywhere.
