ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s another week gone by and spring is making
itself known up here.  Floods are beginning due
to melting ice and snow.  Right now at 3:30 in
the evening it’s 29 F degrees though.  Still not
quite spring weather hehehe.  OK it’s spring
weather for up here,  but not for where I was
born and raised in Texas LOL.  My weather
program shows that it might warm up a little
by Wednesday to the upper 30’s and then by
late week to the upper 40’s,  but that’s just
a guess from The Weather Channel.  Tonight
it’s supposed to get down to 9 F degrees LOL.
Or at least by morning it should be 9 F.  So,
what else is happening over this way.  Well,
Thursday morning when I let the boys out to
go potty,  they decided to go out for a field trip
on their own.  I donned my shoes and took
my camera with me to go and find them and
tell them to get their butts back to the house.
LOL I was hollering for them and then here
comes Rocky running towards me and then
he stopping by my side.  I kept on hollering,
but Benny ignored me hehehe.  I walked on
and then he saw me and knew he was in hot
water LOL.  He shuddered a bit and then he
slowly came running.  I took pictures of them
both as they ran to the house.  After that we
started putting their electronic fence collars
on them again.  Stopped that hehehe.  I’m
sure that after a few days of that they’ll get
the message and go back to hanging around
the house until Judy and/or I take them out
for a field trip.  I’m too afraid they’ll get into
something that I won’t be able to find them
and help them if I were not there.  Benny is
mostly the one I worry about.  He’s a curious
little fart.  None the less they are both doing
well.  Ornery as ever LOL!  Our landlord
came by yesterday and said,  he’ll have to
come by and fix his mess ups in a few days 🙂
He used his tractor with backhoe and bucket
to clear our driveway a few times and he dug
a few deep ditches in the driveway hehehe.
Yep,  before he’ll be able to mow,  he’ll have
to fix that.  No way he’ll be able to mow the
way it sits LOL. So what else is going on at
the Pearce’s Place?  Our youngest grandson
Christian came to spend the weekend with us.
We stayed up till about 3 AM this morning
watching funny videos on Youtube.  Plus,  he
brought a Dragonball Z movie with him for
us to watch with him.  We always enjoy it
when Christian comes to visit.  We all went
to Subway last night and bought some sub
sandwiches that we brought home for our
dinner.  We watched Ghost Adventures
or what ever that was called and then we
watched Youtube videos for the rest of the
night till about 3 AM.  Then my old neck
and back said Bill go to bed.  So me and
Judy headed to bed.  Christian headed to
the recliner in the living room where he
sleeps and he sat playing with his tablet
watching Youtube DBZ gaming videos and
some others.  Right now he’s gone in there
to keep from bothering me as I write.  He
is so considerate 🙂  Though I doubt he’d
bother me being in here,  but at least this
way, if he gets excited he doesn’t have to
worry about laughing too loud hehehe.
Judy is behind me reading a book on
her Kindle.  It was just a tablet,  but she
downloaded a Kindle app and it turned
it into a Kindle 🙂   Cheaper than buying
a Kindle which we surely can’t afford.
So it seems all’s well at the Pearce’s Place.
Yep,  it even seems that our ghost dog
is enjoying life as it may 🙂  Yes,  it seems
we have a ghost dog and he plays with the
dog toys even when Benny and Rocky
are not in the room hehehe.  We think
it might be Milo.  He did so love to play
with the toys,  of course up until he lost
his hearing and couldn’t hear them squeak.
Yet he still would find the Lamb Chop
dog toy and run through the house with
it hehehe.  His favorite when he could
hear was the blue octopus.  For that
matter it was also Benny’s favorite and
they would often have a tug of war with
it LOL.  That poor little octopus 🙂  His
tentacles and eyes caught the brunt of
it all hehehe.  We even bought another
one,  so they would each have one,  but
they still fought over the one hehehe 🙂
Rocky likes to empty all of the toy boxes
and string the toys out all through the
house.  When we start picking them up
and putting them back,  he will be right
behind us taking them out faster than
we can get them in the boxes LOL.  He
LOVES those dog toys.  Benny plays
with one or two,  but that’s all he ever
has interest in hehehe.  Not Rocky LOL.
Nope,  he plays with them ALL.  Boy,
that wind outside is blowing profusely.
Sheesh,  it sounds like a sledge hammer
as it beats against the house with each
gust.  OK maybe not a heavy sledge
hammer,  but maybe a really soft sort
of sledge hammer hehehe.  None the
less,  we can feel the trailer shake as
my monitor sways back and forth like a
pendulum hehehe.  Makes me a little
dizzy sort of to try and read hehehehe.
This things swings like a pendulum do
bobbies on bicycles,  two by two 🙂 LOL.
Hehehe an old Roger Miller song came
back to me.  I used to love that song 🙂
Chug-A Lug and Do-Wacka-Do were
also some of my favorites of his.  My
favorite cousin Melodie and me used
to always sing those songs.  She passed
away many years ago.  But she still is
alive in spirit as she watches me from
Heaven 🙂  Love ya Melodie,  but then,
I’m sure you already know that.  So
OK what else is there to ramble about?
It doesn’t look like there’s much else to
tell you.  God has been watching over
Judy and I since the beginning and I’m
sure He is watching over us today.  He
has sent many angels to help us when
we were in need.  We thank God for
that and all that we are so unaware of
that He does for us.  You should also be
thankful even if you are unaware of what
He has done for you.  So many blessings
go under our radar as we just continue
our lives.  Thank Him for all that you
know of and all that you know not of.
Trust that God is always in control,
no matter how bad things might seem.
Now I believe it’s time for me to begin
my search back through all that I have
written here to see I can find 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.  It looks as if
I may have found a decent title and now
after checking, I see that I haven’t used
it yet,  so here goes.  Wish me luck 🙂

When We Start

Beginnings begin
when endings subside
and when we start
we’ll find a new ride.
Maybe found bumpy
or with some road blocks.
Yes when we start
we might hit some rocks.
Times might uncover
some hidden pathways
for when we start
we’re seeing new days.
Some might seem silly
and some might seem dumb,
but when we start moving
we will have begun.
Learning our lessons
from times driven trails
when we start out with
some ignorant sails.
Then as our journey
finds footing in place
time becomes doorways
with new things to face.
So when we start out
and see things to change
time in a new day
might seem very strange.
Yet when we start out
and head on our way
we need to let Jesus
help us every day.

Okie dokie there ya go.  It might not be
that good,  but it’ll have to do hehehehe.
I often have no control of what comes out
of my head and into writing.  I just start
writing using the title as the beginning to
form thoughts as a river.  It sometimes
flows quickly as it did just now and the
words just pour out like water.  Anyways,
I hope you enjoyed it and maybe even
enjoyed my rambling.  Yes,  I know,  I
do tend to ramble a bit,  don’t I hehehehe.
Well as long as you got a laugh or 2 from
it,  that’s all that matters.  Hopefully my
rambling also served you some peace to
take with you in life.  I know that when
I read it back to myself,  I’ll often find
myself in another world.  Weird I know,
but that’s me.  Yeppers,  I’m weird with
a capital W hehehe.  That wind is still
blowing quite briskly outside.  It shows
on my weather program that we are
having 20 to 30 mph winds with 40 mph
gusts,  so yeppers,  it be blowing hard.
Well I don’t believe I have forgotten
anything,  so I reckon it’s time for me
to be telling you what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some
more poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 more
poems with 1 that’s a tad Christmassy 🙂
I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of
the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that
you like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for
me to be searching for that confounded
off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most blessed weekend or whatever’s
left of it and a truly wonderful week 🙂
Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where is that blasted
off switch hiding at this time?  Hmm I
think I see a little movement behind
my monitor hehehe aside from the
swaying that it is doing on its own
due to the wind LOL.  Yep that little
varmint was hanging onto the back
of my monitor and losing its grip as
the monitor rocked back and forth 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

P.S.  Oh yea,  I wrote another poem
Friday about friends that will up the
count of poems to 11 hehehe Enjoy.

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Despite The Pain

The stress of time
that falls in place
might some times
put a frown on your face.
So many heartaches
that come into view
might sometimes
create what you do.
Patterns repeated
might show on your face
a breath of much lesser
and with a bad taste.
Yet all those moments
time frames record
might be many lessons
allowed from our Lord.
Time might seem bitter
and seem so insane,
but you might get stronger
despite the pain.

A Change Of Pace

Footsteps marching
to their own drum
while they might whistle
or they might hum.
Ones own footsteps
will record a trace
the times that they
had a change of pace.
Often seen running
and then slowing down
a change of pace
shows how they get around.
Many situations
will discern our path
and a change of pace
might lessen our wrath.
So our destinations
that we’re striving for
a change of pace
might help us go far.
Taking a breather
from your daily stride
a change of pace
might smooth out the ride.
So don’t be always
be in a mad race.
Enjoy the journey
with a change of pace.

Melting Icicles

The season of winter
comes in with a roar
found with the sight of
snowflakes and more.
Bringing in settings
of new sights to see
with icicles forming
upon every tree.
Christmas then heightens
the wintertime scenes
with many colors
of red blues and greens.
Some lights with colors
found just of white
with icicles forming
in the dark of the night.
Then when the season
has done all it can
some melting icicles
display another plan.
Springtime awakens
as snow melts away
with melting icicles
March, April and May.

Never Say Never

When in a moment
you might sort of say
I’ll never do that
not never a day.
Sometimes that moment
might not be true,
for what you say never
might be within you.
Saying that you’ll never
do anything
might find you one day
changing how you sing.
So never say never
for turnstiles might change
leaving you choices
to do something strange.
Then with the choices
and what’s in front of you
your never say never
might seem good to do.

A Cloud Filled Morning

The beginning of the day
shows raindrops to fall
on a cloud filled morning
with springtime to call.
Winter’s still holding tight
a grasp white as snow,
as the season of springtime
seeks much to grow.
Northern skies clouded up
revealing a view
filled full of hopeful
that spring will come true.
Like a book of pages
that turn with the wind
the days show us springtime
that shall transcend.
Then as the snow melts
and winter is gone
a cloud filled morning
will then carry on.

A List Of Tries

Efforts of useless
only explode
a list of tries
on down the road.
Not giving your all
to surely succeed
a list of tries
won’t give what you need.
Put better effort
in good things to do
and then you might
not end up so blue.
A list of tries
so many will write
what all they’ll do
each day and each night.
But the best efforts
in what’s not just lies
can help you succeed
a list full of tries.

Less Of Me

I find times
I’m so confused
what that’s me
that I abused.
Scenes created
in my mind
things remembered
time to time.
Now I gather
all my strength
to take God
the greater length.
Less of me
and more of Him
not just when
my life is dim.
God makes great
my life to see,
more of Him
and less of me.

The Walls Of Time

Decades of pastimes
of which we will see
the walls of time
become history.
If walls could talk
they’d tell a tail
things they’ve seen
of Heaven and Hell.
All that was spoken
the walls heard clear
as they recorded
each smile and each tear.
The walls of time
that many don’t know
show all the heartbreaks
and love that will grow.
So much remembered
is found to remind
the leftover moments
the walls of time.

Bluebells

Remembering Texas
and flowers that bloom
I think of Bluebells
we saw within June.
All of those flowers
flowing like seasons
Bluebells so wondrous
as flowery legions.
Exposing springtime
and summer’s rain
Bluebells discernment,
joy to attain.
Remembering those times
a long time ago
I have the pictures
of Bluebells that grow.
Seasonal displays
timeless details
the sight of the wonderful
scenes of Bluebells.

Life In A Doorway

Standing just looking in
you might not find
the life that you’re seeking
to fill up your mind.
Life in a doorway
just standing around
you might not see what’s
there to be found.
Sometimes your footsteps
need to walk in
to allow God to work
and help you begin.
Yet many times we
might need to stand
life in a doorway
and think of a plan.
Not with hurried heart
seeking each day,
learning what to do with
life in a doorway.

Friendship Through Life

Decisive the years pass
as friendships are born
and some might end up
a bit mangled and torn.
Chances for friendship
will come and then go
with some as good-byes
and some as hello.
Yet there are many then
that find ways to be
a friendship through life
and our history.
Lessons from passed days
will often foretell
a friendship through life,
or one not so well.
So as the pages turn
in times so precise,
some might be true in
friendship through life.

Haiku
for Mar 31,  2016

Summer of violets
displays a reddish blue hue
that seems as Heaven.

Morning is the time
that allows new beginnings
to let time to pass.

Minutes of a rose
are as petals in the wind
as their time finds end.

Leftover heartbeats
can bring forth a miracle
seen as a daisy.

Love finds emotions
within the moonlight at night
and stars up above.

Seasons have moments
that are discerned as patterns
changing with the wind.

The times we recall
might be what needs forgotten,
for they are hatred.

Hardwired anger
brings regretful emotions
that later arrive.

Thriving on mishaps
finds your growth without lessons
if mishaps don’t teach.

Lasting impressions
come at unfortunate times
and leave a bad taste.

Roads to endearment
often have winding journeys
with some bumpy miles.

The knowledge to drive
refers to more than a car,
but how you’re to act.

A leaf falling down
has no predetermined flight
or place it shall land.

Ones recollections
might have lost their true colors
and turned black and white.

Sunshine and rainbows
are blessings from up above
to help peace to thrive.

Glancing at the sky
you might see a few emotions
found within your eyes.

True friends will be there
no matter how much you have,
for they are deeper.

Beyond what we see
holds the flavors of passion
found in Lord Jesus.

A bugs life seems small,
but to it there’s always hope,
found in tomorrow.

Depicting colors
of springtime to summertime
shows colors so bright.

Timeless solitude
comes as a forest of life
with leaves falling down.

Changing perception
needs a change from deep within
to allow the change,
