~~Butterflies ‘n’ Bumble-bees   2 comments

**************************************************

A little boy (5 years old), butterflies, bumble-bees, baseball, the beach, BBQ, bedtime stories, and just hangin’ out in the park.  Seems like almost everything begins with a “B” that we did !  This was my schedule for the past weekend. My grandson came to visit ( all by himself…, for the whole weekend !). It was a grand time and, to his parents surprise, he didn’t want to go home with them on Sunday night !

Reluctantly, I let them take him home :(
We already have plans for the next trip!

……………..

The pencil’s broken The inkwell’s dry

I’m left to sit and wonder why

I search each day and try to find

But words don’t come to this tired mind

None and nothing comes it seems

But endless, worn, and weary dreams

Another night of broken sleep

There seems no thought that I may keep

So I leave you now on this tired night

And, again, reach out for the light

That once again will set me free

And unchain the spirit inside of me

To write…

we share emotions bright and bold
thoughts of care and love are told
through the years as we grow old

A soft quiet night

And the warm air is still

Lightning bugs floatin’

Up there on the hill

No hint of a moon

Just stars in the sky

Just a soft, sultry night

At the start of July

Once I could reach the farthest star

And gather moonbeams in a jar

 

I walked out on the milky way

And troubles seemed so far away

 

The grand celestial night so deep

Was where I lay my head to sleep

 

Creeping age now steals it seems

My hopes and all my deepest dreams

 

Like phantoms, one by one they’re gone

Into the mist as time moves on

 

As we journey along our way

Be alert, lest you lose your way

 

Always try your best to stay

In the present time.., today

 

The past we knew is done

It sailed out with the setting sun

 

And when this day’s time is run

And a new day has begun

In  the bright light of it’s new sun

Smile, laugh, and celebrate this new chance to be alive.

4th of July *** Big Band, Jazz, Dixieland, and some Patriotic music by the Heidman Band at “Fridays by the Fountain”.

During the late Spring and Summer the Morris Civic Auditorium in South Bend presents live music by the fountain in

front f the auditorium from 10:30am til 3:30pm on every Friday.  Most of the bands are local talent, and are quite good,

(at least some of them), and once in a while a group from Chicago will show up.  If you get lucky they might even have a

good vocalist in the group.   It’s a great place to go and have lunch, listen to some good tunes, and while away a couple of

hours.  Best part is that it’s free (except for lunch).

This is a quote from a sign posted in a restaurant I visited recently:

“CHILDREN LEFT UNATTENDED WILL IMMEDIATELY BE GIVEN AN EXPRESSO AND A FREE PUPPY”
