SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAWhen an old friend comes to visit

what do you have to do?

Head to the newest coffeeshop

and pick this from their menu:

a snifter of marshmallow milk

espresso with chocolate ganache

mix, salute, and sip

with arthritis and panache.

My old friend Donna is here this week.

Teetering on the edge of our 74th birthdays,

friends since high school,

we have much to salute!

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAToday’s my mother’s birthday

she would be 98!

she died before she aged

I try to think that’s great.

Of all the things of hers I kept

this makes me laugh and cry

if you know what this treasure is

then you’re as old as I.

Evelyn Mauck O’HernĀ  11/14/1918 – 6/19/1996

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAIf you are like me

(and of course you are)

your walk will become

irregular

you must follow the crunch

on the side of the paths

mimsy as borogoves

outgrabing the mome raths

because at the end of

arrows and slings

this is how

we make sense of things.

With apologies and thanks to Messrs. Carroll and Shakespeare.
