THE SURE THING, CAN DO, CAN'T MISS SYSTEM





The fifteen-cent-a-minute long distance phone call from my wife to my sister-in-law was an hour and a half long. I peered over my newspaper to the clock over Mabel's shoulder. The phone receiver blocked my view. I craned my neck.

Irish Spirits

One day a mist will dance silently
across the sea
And in the sun upon arriving
the mist will morph into me

And I will wisper in her ear

Watch for the mist  though..... it comes

The photo had such an effect on me that I cut it out and… Continue
