The Artful Words Post

While performing a frantic search for my ancient Farm Journal Candy Making cook book, I came across the three ring binder filled with stuff I had written years and years ago.   I was unexpectedly joy filled when I found it.  I thought it had been thrown away.  My fault about that.  I didn’t appreciate it enough to to put it somewhere safe where I could find it again some day. 

 

Anyways, I had an excellent time reading over the epic poems and verses I had written in my teens and twenties.  I had a warped sense of humor even back then, it seems. The following is one of my short verses.  It so well fits this Ky Perkins pencil sketch.

BEDLAM

A short verse written by me

 

                                     Bedlam occurs when one spider

                                     In his most hairiest state           

                                     Drops fifty feet from a ceiling 

                                     And peers into one girlish face.

 
 

By the way, I never did find my old cookbook, but I was able to locate a copy of it at  Amazon.  I was so pleased to find it there.  It was published in the seventies, I think. I found a paperback copy that only cost $1.89.  A good addition to any foodie’s cookbook collection. It would make an excellent Christmas present.

OK, I got to get back to work here.  Just had to share this with you all….

About Rennie

Welcome to my blog. My name is Rennie. I am 66 years old, retired, and married to a truck loving guy named Dave. We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest within the state of Oregon, USA. We are a household of two humans and one senior citizen kitty. I named my blog after two things I love to do. MuddiWorks is what I call my studio (a.k.a. extra room in our house where I keep all my art stuff). Kitchen Spurts is the term I came up with to describe my forays into the kitchen to cook. I am presently involved in the exploration of what it's like to be a financially insecure retired person. My blogs will be about things that interest me, amuse me, or irk me. My blog is my vent place.
