My luck, the first card I drew was a bomb.
It was all over, just like that --  BOOM!
I am better at Canasta, but refuse to play it,
for the obvious reasons---
-no taco-cat
-no rubbing the belly of a pig-a-corn
-no all seeing goat wizard to ask
(I can go on, but I'm out of the game)

Spring comes early to England.
After padding our hoofs in the
gardens we were quickly out of
our daisy-roots and relaxing in
the library, merry as grigs,
when she entered.   "I seem to
have misplaced my lorgnettes,"
she stated, "and I simply cannot
go to that opera without them."
Not going to the opera tonight
sounded good to us.
"Let's have a wet," she added.

"Delicious," she stated, "but you can't have any."
"Ah, please" I asked, "just one high heel, please?"
"Definitely not a high heel," she replied.
"Maybe just a pocketbook?" I countered.
"No," came the reply, as she popped it into her mouth.
"SUGARPOVA knows candy, and these are all for me."

"Really sweet," she said as she handed me the package.
"Sort of like gummy bears, just more cute," she added.
"You mean cuter?" I started to reply.......
"No," she stated, "more cute is better than cuter."
Never interrupt a SUGARPOVA moment, I quietly thought to myself.

John Bates, valet for Lord Grantham of Downton Abbey,
was convicted of murdering his wife with rat poison.
He was framed and is innocent. While his death sentence
has been commuted, he has now been sentenced to life
in prison. We urge British authorities to re-open the
case, find the real murderer and free Mr. Bates so that
he can move on with his story line.

STAY on the TRAIL......

"But there's no snow yet, none at all," she stated.
"That's why these signs go out now," I said, and added,
"It will be too late when that first snow starts to fall."
"Doesn't the arrow's direction confuse some people," she asked.
"Only the dumb ones who shouldn't be there," I replied.

Beatrice's Hat.....

"Poster motivation never worked for me," she started.
"This one's all about that hat.   The taupe one.  Beatrice's," I added.
"What color is taupe anyway?" she asked.
"It's kind of like tan, only greener," I said.
"No, silly, it's a european mole," she stated.
"Like 'Taupe d'europe' or 'Talpa europaea'," she confirmed.
