FullSizeRender Lexie in the pillows

This is my little Lexie, a chihuahua mix who is tiny but so sweet. Here she is trying to sleep under my pillows. She is a burrower. Makes a great watch dog because she has a fierce bark.

Mom's has-been groove in ghost-boy novel

Marcus, in Gail Godwin’s new novel, Grief Cottage, recalls his friendship with Wheezer, whom he’d once beaten up at school because Wheezer had exposed Marcus’ shameful secret about his mom.  Now Marcus, age 10, is an orphan.  His dad has always been unknown to him; and his mom has just died in a car accident. Relocated to his aunt’s beach house, Marcus, despite the safety of the place, finds himself in trouble.

Kids Love For Animals

Kids Love For Animals ( Poem )

Children’s favorite shows are of animals

I have hours in a playlist that are laughable

Like a camera pecking rooster and fun monkeys

To a mom and a baby miniature donkeys

Videos of wild turkeys and charming geese

Ducks in water and chicks learning to speak

Dazzling ostrich and many free birds

Some you would not want to move towards

A large unique animal is the alligator

The total opposite of the…

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Create designer Christmas tree

From squash, to bread, and fun cookies

Instructions made so easily

One from red hat society

Home from the heart season theme

Star wars made a holiday scene

Wonderland can be of little lambs

Making ornaments with your hands

Whatever your style or budget

Your personal touch can be tropic

Focal point of your home can be

Inspired by glamorous jewelry

We…

Tractor Pulls

Tractor Pulls ( Poem )

America’s passion tractor haul

Ford and Farmall want to take it all

Showcasing your tractor is never dull

Case give a strong performance call

See a smokey John Deere tractor

Unleash yourself in an Oliver

Massey Ferguson speeds uncovered

As International pulls with no effort

White’s power with high tractive force

As McCormick is running the course

Agricultural machinery Competition

Fun family oriented…

Woodsmen Day

Woodsmen Day ( Poem)

Sport using handsaws

With a toothed edge blade

One or two handed sawing

On a woodsmen fair day

Traditional log rolling

Is a lumberjacks technique

Style used in river driving

The illustration is unique

Springboard tree is branchless

With live action you can’t beat

Platform board is dangerous

A risk if you compete

Block ax chopping

Is a loggers sport indeed

Hard on your back swinging

Be…

Discussing JHATOR at UCC in Norwell, MA

JHATOR was chosen as the summer read for the book club at the United Church of Christ in Norwell, MA.  Today, the Rev. Deborah Spratley hosted an author's brunch and discussion of the book with me and members of both the book club and writer's group at the church.

One of the first things I learned from the group members, who are approaching the book from a Christian POV, is that starting the book with Anat, the vulture, was unsettling for most of them.  Of course, that is the point of…

Wishing Witch

Wishing Witch

My Halloween screenplay is funny as can be

It’s funny how witchcraft is what we need to see

Brewing up trouble with all your classmates

The teacher will get angry, make no mistake

Crazy riddles from a child can be so scary

Being her classmate leaves you feeling wary

You may start a princess and end as a boar

As her riddles will leave you in an uproar

Will you return to normal after all this nonsense

Is the question…

Broken Souls

Broken Souls

I talk to producers of books and screenplays

My tormented farm life strayed my way

Strict sheltered home and harsh realities

Today’s modern world and mental tragedies

Constantly under pressure, was pure and healthy

I find I was repressed by everything I’d see

Never exposed to the world most know

By turning on t.v and watching a show

The day finally came, I had to leave home

To the hard tough world, I felt so…

The Warmth Of Homemade

The Warmth Of Homemade

Cooking, freezing, and raspberry jam

Beef stew, salmon pie, and egg rolls out of ham

Quick party foods and a hunters breakfast

Castle cake, feather bed, and little trees for Christmas

Cakes of Dolphin, Smurf, and Muno too

Butterfly, Barbie Doll with thousands of views

Baby items, aprons, and dresses to sew

You can make your own maple syrup, you know

Wreaths, snowmen, and Christmas logs are a craft
