Weather Haiku

I hear the thunder 
fall like nobody's business
drip, splish, splash, KA-BOOOM.

I let others...

...win the Internet. I much prefer playing horseshoes.

I saw Ewan McGregor...

...at Walmart the other day. He was much shorter than I expected.

If your knives are dull, sharpen them

If you don't like your hairdo, change it.

If you think you weigh too much, lose some.

If you're always talkative, try listening.

If you're the quiet type, speak up.

If you hate spending large portions of your life sitting in a chair, get up and go for a walk.

If you love spending large portions of your life sitting in a chair, get up and go for a walk before you can't.

If your big dreams seem unattainable, they are until you get serious about them.

You'll never have an adventure by staying inside.

Start today. Do something different.

"If only" is an excuse.

Life's too short for excuses.

In honor of National Haiku Poetry Day...

I saw last night's storm
wash away dusty Thursday
for Friday's pleasure.

*   *   *  

Afternoon breeze
swirling Spring pollen 
Achoo.

*   *   *

Dusty boots outside
where life is better to live
and die in Texas.

No, I did not enjoy my trip


4.8.15 No, I did NOT enjoy my trip.


I fell down.

I fell down the front steps.

I fell down the front steps and landed flat on my butt.

I fell down the front steps and landed flat on my butt in a pool of water and mud.

Other than feeling like my spine had been compressed by the moon being suddenly dropped on top of my head, it really didn't hurt.

At least not on Sunday.

Monday, back at work, all was going well until I tried to balance a stick on top of my nose.

Sometimes I do that.

Balance things on top of my nose.

Well, light things. Not like chairs or lawn mowers.

Sticks.

Brooms.

Maybe a ukulele, if I dare.

But on Monday my neck was too stiff to balance anything.

And then on Tuesday I started walking like an old man.

On Wednesday I started walking like an old woman.

And then it got even worserer, which isn't really a word, but on Thursday I couldn't care less.

I'm typing this on Friday. (Actually, I'm typing this on a laptop, but...). I took the day off. No use in me sitting around at work all bummed out in pain, when I could be sitting around at home all bummed out in pain.

Luckily for me, as my wife was heading out the door for work, she left me a To Do List to do.

I guess she thought I'd be bored all alone at home.

Alone in the peace and quiet.

She's thoughtful like that.

Life is not...

... about me or you or the horses we rode in on; it's about working hard, helping others, being kind and forgiving.

Cat Haiku

He was a good cat.
Kept the rats on high alert.
RIP, Fluffy.

Insomnia Haiku

One in the morning
is good a time as any
to not sleep at all.
