“Raise your words not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder”-Rumi
If we were having coffee at the cafe on this day in-
1941-the Andrew Sisters recorded “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, a song that became a classic World War II hit.
1960- we learned of the announcement by John F. Kennedy, a 42-year-old senator, he was going to run for U.S. President on the Democratic ticket.
1974- speed limit laws were set to 55 mph by U.S. President, Richard Nixon. The new speed limit applied to all national highways.
And, while you’re relaxing at the cafe, why not introduce yourselves to-
A Verse of Stories, Short and Long
Trent’s World (the Blog)
Word of the week–grandiose–(adjective) impressive or magnificent in appearance or style, especially pretentiously so. synonyms-impressive, magnificent, grand, imposing, awe-inspiring, splendid, glorious, majestic, elaborate.
Words that rhyme or nearly rhyme-close, dose, gross, most.
As we yearn for the high fives
Wishing for those nine lives
Our egos on a fast ride
Basking in the high life
The world’s grandiose facade
Yes, perhaps a bit flawed
Let’s noodle the thought
A new earth can’t be bought
We gotta watch what’s goin’ down
Lend our best ear to the ground
The earth doesn’t need a bow to be a gift
C’mon, do you get my drift
This splendid planet is ours to keep
Memo yourself, you reap what you sow
and sow what you reap
