10 suggestions Poet James Russell Lowell


The Poet asked:  “Oh what is so rare as a day in June?”

1.     The flame created by the burning of your paid-off home mortgage.

2.     The look on the face of a three-year-old child who hears her dad’s car coming up the driveway.

3.     A wife seeing her husband of 55 years pain-free after recuperating from back surgery.

4.     Your dog’s tail when someone brings him his dinner.

5.     Grandpa’s joy at finding where Grandma hid the cookies after she left to play Mahjongg with her friends all afternoon.

6.     Grandma’s joy when Grandpa finally agrees to get a haircut.

7.     Parking the car in a rainstorm thinking you left the umbrella at home— and then seeing it lying in the back seat.

8.     The happiness of a boy who sees his homing pigeon land in its coop after being missing for a week.

9.     Ten Lords a-leaping.

10. And a partridge in a pear tree.

I Wonder…

I wonder about TV news. As a newspaper journalist I covered the Falkland Island conflict in 1983.  I remember seeing a fledging CNN news channel correspondent doing a stand-up report. He  didn’t mention Donald Trump once.

What’s Your 10 ?

Hello, All

Just a random thought from an ol’ geezer of a humor writer: If you are on a shortwave radio with someone you consider to be a half wit, do you seek the person’s current location by asking: “What’s your 10?”?
