Giving Thanks in Canada

 In Canada and around the world! I know my family here in the United States and in Quebec are enjoying this day of celebration with family, friends, and food! (pass the butter tarts please)

A Little Off the Top

This afternoon, she called

Shared a situation

Demands reparation

Her car damaged

Because she chose to park

Underneath the tree branch

Not in front of the ranch

Someone must pay

It’s in the neighbor’s yard

Hanging over the fence

Causing emotions, tense

Friends now at odds

There’s no reason to fight

Of course, no one’s to blame

Foliage hangs in shame

Grab the clippers

Let’s play cards with friends

Sit on the porch and chit chat

Ride bikes to the park

Put together a puzzle

Grab a leash and walk the dog

that’s nice


Could be

That you are

Quite a good friend

People speak highly

Of you in glowing terms

They enjoy time spent time with you

You could be laughing or crying

And they will want to do it again

Nice to know this before your eulogy

tete a tete

Conversations pleasant

With friends both old and new

Share what you’ve all been through

And plans to change
