ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s been another cold and snowy week up this way.  Last
night it snowed a little bit more,  but thankfully it was not
anything of a grand scale.  At least not for us hehehe  The
old man of winter has a lot more time to play with us,  so
I’m sure we’ll get a lot more snow before it’s over with 🙂
We’ve been dealing with it as we do every year.  Taking
pictures and trying to stay warm with a random drive to
town ever so often to buy groceries and such.  Benny is
still loving the snow and Milo still don’t hehehe.  So what
else is there to tell ya.  Oh yea,  Judy’s youngest daughter
Helena and our grandson  came to visit Wednesday and
Christian spent the day with us while Helena went to work.
It was a great visit.  Then Thursday Judy went over to her
sister Trudy’s house and visited for a while.  She barely
made it out of our driveway hehehe.  She had to back
up and get a running start at it to get through the snow
drift.  While Judy was gone,  it began snowing a little bit
harder and I went out with the snow shovel and tried to
shovel down the driveway as best that I could so that
if our landlord didn’t make here to plow before Judy got
back,  she might be able to make it in our driveway 🙂
Thank God,  our landlord showed up and plowed the
driveway before she got home.  He got stuck in a snow
bank while plowing and he and I had to dig his truck
out.  He had just finished plowing when Judy pulled
up.  Perfect timing hehehe.  Yep,  the driveway was
nice and plowed for her to come and park the car 🙂
Calvin thanked me for helping him dig out his truck.
I told him if I hadn’t of,  our driveway might of never
gotten plowed LOL.  Anyways,  I took a few pictures,
as if you didn’t think I would hehehe.  I took a few
sunset pictures and I even got a picture of the black
moon.  It’s looking like we might get a little bit more
snow tonight and maybe some in the middle of the
week,  but for now it seems the sky snow machine
is at rest or at least it is up here.  I’m sure it’ll crank
back up again soon hehehe.  We’ve been known to
get our worst snow storms in March LOL.  We did
last year.  So,  what else is there to ramble about?
Well,  Benny just strolled in from the living room.
I guess he got tired of waiting for Judy to get home
and decided to join me and Milo in here.  I just called
our internet server and got me another email address.
I might let this WT email address go soon,  but before
I do,  I will have to spend some time changing all of
my email addresses on my many different programs
and places of business.  That will take me quite a
while.  I’ve had this WT address for over a decade.
Before it,  I had another address,  but it was also on
WT hehehe.  So I might be attempting to change it
over soon.  It might take me a while though hehehe.
Pioneer Broadband allows us 5 email addresses
and this new one will be 3 for us.  I’ve been using
my other Pwless email for other things and I need
2 separate email addresses to keep track of things.
My Hotmail and Yahoo are more for junk.  They’re
only good for plain text emails,  which I have them
locked on to other things LOL.  Yes,  I’ve been on
the net for many a year hehehe.  I’ve been doing
my Animal’s Greetings for about 2 decades LOL
although it didn’t start out as it is today.  It went
through many different pathways changing styles.
It took a number of years to find the right format
that would be what it is today.  I know a few of you
on Yahoo,  Hotmail etc etc are receiving this in
the old plain jane style,  but there are many out
there that are receiving this in my stationery style.
Those that get it that way can see what all that I’m
talking about when I talk about pictures hehehe.
Anyways,  next topic.  Milo just pawed at the door
to tell me that he needs to go outside and potty
and from the look on little Benny’s face,  I think
he needs to go out also hehehe.  I let them both
out and waited for them to get done.  They are
now back inside,  although Benny has chosen to
perch himself on the recliner again and wait for
his mom to get home.  Judy won’t be home for a
few more hours,  so he might be back in here in
a bit LOL.  Milo is in here back in his favorite
place right in the floor beside me in his doggy
bed.  It’s 10 F degrees right now at 8:30 PM 🙂
but was only supposed to drop to 16 F degrees by
morning,  so whatever LOL.  Tomorrow is a bit
of a different story,  but it’s still not as bad as it
has been or as it will get.  Back in 2009 we had
almost a month of temperatures of subzero day
and night hehehe.  About 3 weeks of 50 below
or thereabouts hehehe.  So this ain’t nothing LOL.
It’s beginning to feel like I have always been up
here hehehe.  It’ only been 7 years,  but it feels
like it’s been much longer.  It even seems like
Benny and Milo have always been here,  but it’s
been just since 2012.  We got Benny in March
of 2012 and Milo in October of the same year.
Benny was only about 7 1\2 months old when we
got him hehehe.  Milo though was almost 8 years
old.  He turned 8 October 31 2012.  Yep.  he’s
a Halloween dog LOL.  Judy and I have been
married for 13 years.  Who would of ever thought
that I would find someone that could put up with
me hehehe.  Hey,  she might toss me out before
it’s over and trade me in on a new model LOL.
Just kidding hehehe.  I know she loves me and
I truly love her.  We have our good and bad days.
No marriage is without a few stumbling blocks.
Even friendship has its ups and downs.  That’s
what’s called life.  We each have our differences
and even identical twins have their differences.
More than you might be aware of.  What;s on
the outside might not mirror what’s on the inside
and visa versa.  Even mirror twins have their
differences.  They might reflect one another,
but they have their own personalities.  We are
each different but alike in many ways.  We might
not see the likenesses until we start noticing
things that are familiar.  God gave us each one
a free will to be who we are meant to be.  Many
will abuse that free will and turn themselves into
a nightmare.  In other words,  God meant for us
to use good judgment with help from our humane
conscience.  Don’t let ones to deceive you into
doing what you truly know better.  Let God be
your guide.  Don’t let Satan trick you into doing
what you shouldn’t be doing.  His demons are
all around and they will often work through other
people that have fallen for their trickery.  I’ve
been there done that and known many that have
also and are for that matter still being bamboozled.
Let your conscience help you to discern right from
wrong.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me be taking
my little trip back through all that I’ve written
here to see if I can find me a good word or phrase
that I can use for the title for today’s brand new
poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a good title and now after
checking I see that it has not been used,  at least
not by me hehehe.  So here goes nothing 🙂

In Other Words

Without our questions
what and why
in other words
would just run dry.
Our many patterns
daily found
in other words
might run aground.
Ones sinking ships
of yesterdays
in other words
might be a phase.
The storms that billow
in front of you
in other words
might teach you true.
Those memories
of days gone by
in other words
might make us cry.
God shows blessings
here and there
in other words
our answered prayer.
So without those
things you’ve done
in other words
you’ve just begun.

Well,  there ya go hehehe.  It might not make any sense
to you,  but hey,  it’s what I thought of when I found the
title.  Many of my poems might seem as riddles hehehe.
Figure it out!  So,  what else is there to tell you that needs
be told?  Milo’s going to the vet this week for some shots.
He’s OK,  they’re just regular prevention shots such as
distemper and rabies.  Though I think he’s going for his
distemper this time.  It might be the other.  I can never
keep up with all of that LOL.  The vet will take care of
it hehehe.  Benny is up to date with all his shots.  Milo is
back to his old ornery self.  Actually since Judy sheered
him,  he’s been acting more like a pup hehehe.  Him and
Benny will bounce around all over the place.  I think the
pounds of hair that Judy cut off of him made him feel
lighter LOL.  There wasn’t much of a change in Benny.
He’s always acted like a pup hehehe.  Though Benny
loves getting his hair trimmed.  He almost fell asleep
while Judy was trimming him LOL.  Milo wasn’t quite
as happy about it hehehe.  Anyways,  they’re hair is
already growing back.  Judy didn’t cut it real short,
being it is still wintertime.  I just heard a truck revving
it’s engine and looked out the backdoor and it was just
our neighbor across the road plowing his driveway.
I guess Benny has gotten used to those sounds LOL.
He isn’t barking at it 🙂  Benny’s a good boy and so
is his big brother Milo.  We don’t know what we’d
do without them.  They’re our little boys hehehehe.
So I reckon I need to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is I wrote some more poems
and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems and 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope
you like one or two of either or both 🙂  So now
I believe it’s time for me to be searching for that
not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend or at least what’s left
of it and a truly blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  OK now,  where
are ya hiding this week?  Ah hah,  I see ya!  You
thought I wouldn’t see ya there hiding behind my
flashlight didn’t ya?  Well,  I saw ya when you
moved and caused it to roll and turn on hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny and Milo Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe 🙂

The Far Sky

Distant clouds
are found united
in the far sky
so excited.
All the scenes
in skies of blue
are as paintings
thereunto.
The sky brings sights
that come alive
that it seems
the winds will drive.
In the far sky
up above
there might be
a duck or dove.
Flying briskly
low and high
found within
the days far sky.

Open Book

A word that’s spoken
in our sight
might be wrong
or might be right.
An open book
with times details
might be wise
with lowered sails.
Many people
only thrive
to see what all
that is your drive.
A silent word
with actions laid
might be found
a bit unmade.
So if you are
found mistook
with your daily
open book.
Seek a mirror
to look in
and find where
you need begin.
In your actions
you might show
an open book
from long ago.
Let your baggage
find some rest
letting now days
to attest.
All the words
from yesterdays
now have better
times displays.
So when people
have a look
they’ll find truth
an open book.

Snow Street

A wintery road
with icy ways
finds some snow
on winters days.
A snow street found
with miles to ride
opens up
for ones to drive.
The whitish scenes
from side to side
are from snow
so much applied.
A snow street then
where cars have gone
becomes a view
as time moves on.
Cameras clicking
taking pictures
of a snow street
whitish mixtures.
Snowflakes falling
at the feet
of a wintery
sweet snow street.

The Night Sky

As stars might twinkle
in the night
there might be a
moon so bright.
Found as Heaven
opened wide
the night sky is
our dreams applied.
With the portions
God has shown
in the night sky
prayers are grown.
As we look up
watching time
the night sky might
seem as a rhyme.
Rhythms beating
Heaven laid
in the night sky
God has made.

Angels of Dawn

Morning finds blessings
that come along
found as God’s answers
angels of dawn.
Blessings uncovered
surely to see
angels of dawn
through our history.
Sometimes the angels
will hold our hand
when we are weak
and barely to stand.
Mornings arrival
gives some a chance
that as time ticks on
is their ambulance.
Don’t be hardheaded
as time moves along.
Let Lord God help you
with angels of dawn.

Of Mask And Shadow

While ones try to hide
of mask and shadow
they might then elude
what’s better to know.
Not allowing others
to see who they are
while mask and shadow
is in them by far.
The truth will be found
no matter how hard
you try to elude
your truthful bombard.
Of mask and shadow
will not last long,
for the truth will show
what’s right or wrong.
For God will display
all that you know
the truth behind
of mask and shadow.

Eyes In The Dark

In the night hours
you might be found
with eyes in the dark
as you look around.
Life in the shadows
with mysteries look
might turn out to be
what’s just mistook.
Eyes in the dark
might be only seen
found as a nightmare
or just a dream.
Often so fearfully
we’ll get a glance
of eyes in the dark
that might seem to dance.
Yet they’re so often
only a spark
of what we fear of
eyes in the dark.

Leftover Dreams

Hearts filled with passion
with leftover dreams
might find some fields of
heartfelt cuisines
Life that is blossoming
hearts opened wide
with leftover dreams
to then be applied.
Seasonal journeys
of dreams evermore
are found in the dreams
of shore after shore.
Leftover dreams
of heartfelt desires
might be the sparking
of true lovers fires.
Don’t lose the hope
of those special scenes
found in the blessings of
leftover dreams.

Rise

Let not your passed days
to tear you apart.
Rise now with prayerful
take Jesus to heart.
Don’t let the bad times
to be all you see.
Rise now with prayerful
to new history.
Let Jesus guide you
through now and tomorrow.
Rise now with hopeful
and lose all your sorrow.
Life might seem gruesome,
but there is some good.
Rise now and see all
which now that you should.
Find all the goodness
that lives now today.
Rise now with Lord God
and kneel down and pray.

A Snowy Lullaby

Snowflakes found falling
in winters own world
are a snowy lullaby
that time has unfurled.
Floating down gracefully
to land on the ground
they’re a snowy lullaby
without a sound.
They sing in the breezes
without much a choice
a snowy lullaby
that’s without a voice.
They float so peacefully
every which way
a snowy lullaby
with day after day.
Winters own magical
presents are found
as a snowy lullaby
without a sound.

Haiku
for Feb 20,  2015

Minds found unopened
lose the possibilities
and become stagnate.

Living in the past
could stop one from loving you,
for they are today.

The stars that twinkle
tell of their own existence
from so faraway.

With just a mere thought
our lives can be much better
so begin thinking.

Lives in our past tense
might of seemed to be better,
but might of been worse.

Allowing today
to become just a moment
could lose its value.

A snowflake that falls
has no clue where it will land,
but yet it has faith.

Today finds a place
that allows our yesterdays
to be as lessons.

As the sunlight fades
and the night comes into view
the sky fills with stars.

Looking beyond dreams
you might find yourself awake
gasping for a breath.

When we are angered
emotions might take over
and begin to swell.

Life is a porthole
through yesterdays tomorrow
found within today.

Images of life
might turn into illusions
if we live in lies.

An ego that’s swelled
could be your own dynamite
as it is blown up.

Fantasy living
brings chances for delusion
causing much sadness.

The fish in water
knows not its diameter
for it does not care.

When life gives problems
use them as tomorrows tools
to better your life.

Having a heartbeat
does not consummate living
for life is much more.

When hearing echoes
you might think that they are near
when they’re faraway.

The path of a star
may have begun years ago
and also ended.

Peace can be entered
when common ground is surmised
with good connections.

Looking up at night
you might see some stars twinkling
and some not so bright.
