June 2016: Pride & Joy


Joy number one was finding a great parking spot.  Then we walked a few blocks to Broadway & met Yaya, the Neapolitan Mastiff who managed to lift his head.  We found a wide corner to stand on & watched the bright colors go by.  It was sunny; people were nice, happy.  The parade delivered dancing, music, flags, drums, batons, balloons, queens, a little leather, floats & fun bikes.  Big smiles, waves, applause, hoots, high-fives, handshakes & hugs.  Skittles & snacks, buttons, t-shirts, stickers.  Acceptance, celebration, remembrance, laughter, assurance, connection, positivity & pride.

December 2015: Winners


We...
opened fitting gifts after cheese fondue,
barely avoided a highway crash--phew.
Learned 'Die Hard' is a good holiday flick,
achieved chimney fires sans matches or candlewick.

Ate fried okra, delicious tempeh & a hundred potatoes.
Tried our best to handle parents as friends not foes.
In 70 mm, saw 'The Hateful Eight'
& met the mountains in a frozen state.

Had lunch on a snowy lake,
bought edibles, a belt buckle, patches, pins, liquor & beer for all our sake--
then met a husky puppy who made our hearts ache.

Completed just one puzzle but attempted two more,
saw a seven-dog bobsled as never before!
Slept bad & then better, wiped to the core.

Sat in hot tubs for night sky & sunset sights,
awoke to -17 & a world in white.  
Even saw fireworks & strolled through blossoms of light.

The adventure for now is done,
but all in all, I think we won.
