Memorial Day

Let us not forget the real meaning of Memorial Day.  It is not just the start of the summer season, and a time to have picnics and barbeques, but a time to remember our fallen heroes, our nation's military who have given their lives in the service of their country.

Dedicated United States military men and women are serving around the world every day.  Please keep them, along with our deceased service men and women, and their families and friends, in your thoughts and prayers on this holiday.

Ode to the Sparkling Icicle

Oh how the water trickles down branches

And forms you lovely, sparkling icicles.

But when winter is over, you melt, 

Until next year.

Oh exquisite, elegant icicle.

Ode to Cinnamon Buns

You are a lovely roll up of cinnamon and cream,

How you melt in my mouth, when I bite into you,

You pair perfectly with the Sunday morning routine,

Oh sweet morning treat, 

What would I do without you!
