The difference between a man and a woman

What every woman longs to hear…
I love you!
You’re right!
I appreciate what you’re doing!
I respect what you’re saying!

What any man wants to hear…
I’m not looking for a commitment!
It’s Payday!
It’s Friday!
The first round is on the house!

A Soldier’s Destiny

Nothing marks the day
He left this world
No pomp, no glory
No flags unfurled
No marching parade
To fill the streets
No tears to run down
Crimson hued cheeks
No one to hold him
No one to care
Just blood stained dirt in
A war somewhere
Left to remind us
Of what he gave
So we could live free
In his land of the brave

Weekly Fortune Cookie…“At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.”

When loves gives us a call, we have to answer the door.  Part of that love it seems is the need to pour our souls out onto paper.

Is it because we are so inspired by the feeling we have that we can’t resist it? Or, as I believe,  is it the fact that we know our partner is going to goo goo ga ga over each and every word. Because love is also blind and deaf. 

So go ahead, write away, even if it’s:

Gretchen, your so fetchen

Debbie, you aint heavy

Jim, you’re so slim

Or

Girl, you make my heart twirl

Trust me on this one… they’re going to love it.

Real Life Friday – 1957

At Wham-o the Pluto Platter

Gets a brand new name

Fred and Ethel say farewell

Dick Clarke gets his fame

The Cat in the Hat is born

Bogie has moved on

Hurricane Audrey rages

While Paul meets with John

Sputnik said that space is now

The brand new frontier

But Russia’s I. C. B. M. missiles

Make their intentions clear

Four hundred officials killed

By Vietcong hands

Elvis starts his life behind

The walls of Graceland

Seventy thousand more lives

Lost to Asian flu

We were losing the space race

As Vanguard dies too

In Arkansas the guards block

The Little Rock Nine

Eisenhower sends in his troops

To settle down the times

McGovern points a finger

Says they’re Commie Reds

Soviets test the H Bomb

Brings ultimate dread

Laika makes it into space

U.S. is grounded

Great Britain test their bomb and

All the alarms are sounded

Great innovations and fails

In births and technology

The electric watch, the Edsel

Jayne Torvill and me
