Mumbles … fyi

I have not vanished, just caught in a very busy time of year with too much to do. I’m not sure how much I will be able to post the next few days, but I am still writing so the posts will follow as possible. Just want to be sure and wish you all happy holidays! Now I must leave for my Dad’s house. (((HUGS)))

Cloud Burst

The day was nothing special
Just a walk along the shore
Then the rain began to fall
Thunder took us by surprise
We were huddled together
Standing next to a lighthouse
We began to kiss
Searching out each other
Like the ships guided by the lights
Finding security in each other
We warmed ourselves with passion
As the storm drenched us
We crashed like the waves on the rocks
Together we found pure pleasure
As the rain stopped falling

Good Home

The sign said “FREE to a good home” and when she saw it she squealed with delight. “Oh Daddy, please can we get a puppy, please, please!”

“I’m sorry Rachael, your mom is allergic,” her Dad said in response.

“But I will keep him in my room and take care of him and vacuum all the time. Oh please?”

“Rachael this is something we would have to talk to your mother about. Not today.”

“Can I call Mom and ask her?”

After fifteen minutes on the phone she handed the phone to her Dad. “Mom wants to talk to you.”

Rachael smiled and waited for her Dad to finish on the phone. As he hit the end call button she said, “Did she say it was alright? Can we get one?”

Her dad grinned slightly and said, “Yes, but you have to take care of it.”

“Oh Daddy, I will. I promise!”

Peering into the box of puppies she exclaimed, “They are all so cute how can you pick one?”

“How about the one with the big black spot on his head?”

“We can name him Bulls-eye. Oh thank you Daddy, he is so cute!”

The Sixth Tee

He took the driver out of his golf bag and walked to the tee box. This was the first game he had played in years and he knew he was going to be a bit rusty. He took two practice swings and addressed the ball. He swung and hit the ball. It went high and far landing just to the right on the fairway.

By the fifth green he was playing like he had never stopped. It was a great feeling for him until he took the walk around the tree before hole six. There laid a lifeless woman’s body.
