A Little Lesson In Life


Sometimes we plan our trips and vacations and our moves from one home to another- and sometimes they are planned and executed by someone else for us- or more specifically  to us.

Sometimes we have to take a little time out to reflect on our lives and what it all meant and sometimes other people do it for us:

But when it comes right down to it, Life is Cruel and so is Death and life is funny and dramatic and so is Death- in my opinion though Death seems to enjoy it’s job so much more.

I wonder why that it so.

Magic 8 Ball Lyrics

I’ve got a horseshoe hanging right above my door
I had a black cat but she doesn’t live here anymore
I look for romance, I search for clues and
The mystery I want to solve is you

I cross my fingers every time that you walk by
(- that you walk by)
I put the whammy on you with my hypnotic eye
But you’re oblivious, don’t take me serious
So there’s one last thing that I can try

My magic 8 ball tells me just what I should do
(- what I should do)
I wanna ask it whether I should be in love with you
Will it tell me yes or no?
(- yes or no?)
Will it tell me stop or go?
I close my eyes, hold my breath and it says…

Decidedly so, decidedly so, decidedly so
Decidedly so, decidedly so, decidedly so
My four-leaf clover is going right into the trash
My rabbit’s foot my voodoo doll will follow fast
I’ll step on every crack, you know I won’t look back
Because now my lucky streak is gonna last

The Happy Homemaker

Today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt is TOOL.  It used to be thought that tools were the province only of humans, but we now know that many animals, particularly birds and mammals use tools.  Do you have a favorite? Share your tool inspired creation with us, and thanks


When I set up my first home

Everyone asked if I wanted stuff for my new place and I said of course!

I was very excited you see, to be setting up my own little place.


I asked for knives.

Lots and lots of knives.

I figure every well ordered home had knives, don’t they?

So I asked for knives

and a knife sharpener

and a first aid kit.

And Band-Aids.

What do you need with so many knives?  Everyone who asked somewhat were puzzled and for some reason they were a little apprehensive too.

” And band-aids, don’t forget the band-aids. I like the ones that look like bacon strips.”

That year I got lots of cool things, I mean my family and friends were super generous.

I Didn’t get any knives though.

Among the fondue pots ( got two of those ) and the Wok and the hot air popcorn popper I did get book about the benefits of meditation and  about a dozen of those cds  that play relaxing music and sounds from nature and I got a dvd of a coral reef and fish- it’s supposed to be soothing the cover says.

But like I said.

Not a single knife.

Thinking back on it, maybe I asked for too much. Maybe this time I’ll just ask for one thing.

Like an axe.

A Fool In Lust

On a fence

near my favorite cemetery

a fool

rings his bells

and calls saucily to me,

” Hey there friend, want to step inside? We’re having a great time and that’s no lie”


I said,  ” Good day ” and prepared to stroll by

by the Fool on the fence said,

” You know you want in, I can see it in your eyes.”


I went to the fool and we stood nose to nose,

” Tell me Fool,  go ahead, do I look like I want to sleep

with a bunch of dusty old bones?”


The Fool pushed his lips, right next to my ear.

” Not sleep, never sleep maybe feast on ten or more, what do you

say my little dark  paramour?”

” I think if your were smarter, ” I said as I reached up

” You wouldn’t offer dinner to a woman who just wants lunch.”
