Another Snowy Venture

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So, how was your Thanksgiving? Ours was very nice.
We started the day off by watching the Thanksgiving
Day Parade on TV and had cheese danish for breakfast.
Judy made them and they were GREAT. Then later on
in the day we had Hungryman Chicken dinners for our
Thanksgiving dinner. They were good, being neither
of us cares much for turkey LOL. We then spent the
rest of the day just lying around while every once in
a while logging on to Facebook. We found a lot of TV
programs to watch. Saturday we went over her twin
sister’s house and had a belated Thanksgiving dinner
get together with a lot of the other family members :).
Benny and Milo had to stay home, being there was
already going to be 18 of us along with Trudy’s 4 lil
Yorkies in their mobile home hehehe. It would of not
been a pretty sight with Benny and Milo added to the
list LOL. I came home early to let them out of their
crates after about 2 and half hours. Me and the boys
spent the rest of the evening in the computer room
entertaining each other while waiting for Judy to get
home. Her sister Barbara brought her home. I told
Judy to call me if she needed me and the boys to come
back and get her, but Barb brought her when she left
to go home. She doesn’t live far from where we live.
Right now it’s 29 F degrees and snowing. Benny has
been out playing in it and even Milo got in a little bit
of play time hehehe. I got a video of them running
around together playing. I also got a few pictures
of them. The snow’s still lacking in depth, but Benny
loves it just the same. I just opened the curtain in
here so Benny and me can watch it snow. Milo is
lying on the bed with Judy. LOL he stole my spot.
Last time I looked in on him, he had his head on my
pillow, but now as I looked in again, he has moved
to the end of the bed. Judy’s still asleep. I would be
still asleep, but my old body was aching too much,
plus I needed to get this written. No we don’t sleep
all of time LOL. We most times don’t head to bed
till maybe 4 AM and then we watch TV till maybe 6
or 7 AM in the morning. Judy and I are night owls.
Benny and Milo follow suit hehehe. Of course most
dogs sleep most of the time anyways. I do wrestle
around with them time to time to keep them happy.
They love it when I play with them. Milo starts
acting like a pup trying to jump as high as he can
to get me hehehe. Benny always acts like a pup.
He will irritate Milo until he plays chase with him.
Benny will often stand in the PC room doorway and
just bark at Milo until Milo has had enough and he
will take out after him chasing Benny to the living
room LOL. You can tell they love each other, being
they often will sleep side by side and we have seen
them giving kisses to each other LOL. Yes, they
are boys, but they are dogs too hehehe. If I begin
petting one, the other butts in wanting to be petted
too. They would love it if I would hold them both in
my lap at the same time, but the only way that I can
do that is for Judy to hand them up, being I can only
pick up without hurting them one at a time. I could
pick them both up easily if they weren’t alive hehehe.
Yet, alive they are and alive I pray that they stay for
many years. They are our little boys/our babies and
we love them. Benny’s now lying down in his doggy
bed next to the radiator heater trying to dry off and
warm up a bit after his little run in the snow. I’m sure
he will be ready for another snowy venture the next
time Milo needs to go out and potty LOL. I see now
that we’re expecting around 4 more inches of snow
tonight. It’s that time of year. Yet, 4 inches isn’t
near as much as we will get as winter gets a better
footing :). I’m sure I’ll have to dig out our car many
times, before wintertime leaves us hehehe. It don’t
matter. I’ve gotten used to it. So, what else is in
the news for us here at The Pearce’s Place? Not
much! Nope, we live a somewhat quiet life other
than a few antics from our boys hehehe. Judy and
I spend much of our time either doing daily chores,
watching TV, goofing around on Facebook and yes
playing with Benny and Milo. Ever so often when
we need groceries, we head to town, being the only
thing store wise out here is Cameron’s Market and
it don’t have much and what it does have is also with
a hefty price :). So unless neither of us feels up to
driving to Houlton or we’re only needing one or two
things we don’t do much shopping at Cameron’s. but
it’s nice to have nearby just in case :). Next topic!
My mothers birthday was yesterday (Saturday) and
I called to wish her a happy birthday. I wish I could
of been there to celebrate it with you mom, but we
had a great time laughing on the phone. I am praying
that we are able to make it down in the spring. It will
be great to be able to see you and my other family
and friends. Well, the snowflakes are still falling as
I’m looking out my window. I just heard Judy moving
about. She’s awake now and watching TV and Benny
ran in there when he heard her and he hopped up on
the bed right along side of Milo hehehe. Now Judy’s
playing with them both on the bed. It’s getting dark
outside. The days are getting shorter. Yep, it’s only
3:20 PM and it looks like nighttime is nearing LOL.
Sunrise is near 7:00 AM and sunset is at 3:47 PM.
So we enjoy the day while it’s here hehehe. I hear
Judy now in the kitchen tinkering around. I think I’ll
see what she wants for breakfast. Be back. BACK!
I fixed us EGGO’s and sausage :). We gave the boys
2 sausage links to shut them up LOL. They always
know if I’m making either pancakes or EGGO’s that
sausages will also be served LOL. The chief of police
in Houlton saw 2 guys on motorcycles riding down our
road yesterday and it was 19 F degrees. Talk about
diehards hehehe. That had to of been frigid. Could
you imagine their hands let alone the wind chill factor
blowing on their face. The brrr factor times ccccccold.
Yeppers, some people will still be found trying to ride
their motorcycles in the snow up here, but of course
they won’t get too far at least not too fast LOL. There
are some loony people out there for sure. Convertible
cars are not very popular up here. The ice and snow
is really hard on them. That’s why you will see them
for sell when wintertime is nearing hehehe. I just took
a look down where Milo is lying in his bed and he’s
got his nose held up close to the heater hehehehehe.
I guess his nose was cold. He just now moved it away
and then moved it back! I guess it wasn’t done yet.
It be dark outside and only 4:09 in the evening. It
feels like 8 or 9 o’clock Texas style :). Yep, it’s still
snowing. It’s 28 F degrees now and might get down
to 23 degrees by morning. That’s not too bad. It
will be getting a whole lot colder before it’s all over
with LOL. Judy is now browsing Facebook. I’m
thankful for the many blessings God has given us
as we have watch the days come and go. There are
many blessings that might go unseen, but they are
there. Many times our view is clouded by our many
wants that we really don’t need. Let God show you
His blessings without you trying to focus on what
all that you haven’t got. There are many that do
not have near what you or I have and they are with
joy. So be thankful and be blessed. Now I believe
it’s time for me to be taking my little journey back
through all that I’ve written here to see if 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 place of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a good
title a way back which I wrote down so as not to
forget it, but I’ve gotta make sure I haven’t already
used it LOL. Nope ain’t used it! So here goes…

Another Snowy Venture

With footprints in snow
I see where our boys go.
They head out far and wide
each time they go outside.
The winters days insure
of another snowy venture
as white snow falls in place
and lands upon their face.
Our boys are four pawed found
just walking all around.
The scenes I see each day
when snow falls in its way
are painted snowy white
with them I do delight.
Another snowy venture
begins their scenic tour
as Benny and Milo find
their winter frame of mind.
The pages turn as books
with those little doggie looks
read as time goes by
with each one eye to eye.
It’s another snowy venture
that they both endure
as the winter winds will blow
with their footsteps to and fro.

Hehehe yep, that poem is about our boys. I hope it
brought you a smile. I just heard a snowplow going
down the road. I reckon they’ll be busy all night :).
It’s 4:43 PM and pitch black outside. Thank God
for porch lights LOL. Well, there isn’t much else
to tell ya about. I think I have touched on anything
that was worth talking about or I could remember
at the moment :). Milo is snoring hehehehehehehe.
I guess I need to tell you what I tell you every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep, 10 more poems with 5 of them being sort of
Christmassy. I also wrote 22 more haiku for all
of my haiku lovers out there. Boy, Milo is LOUD.
When he snores, he SNORES hehehehehehehe.
Anyways, I guess it’s about time for me to begin
my search for that confounded off switch that I
always have to (sort of) hunt for, but not before
I wish you a most blessed and God filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to find that silly off switch. OK, I can see
ya you silly thing. Remember, Milo does tend
to toss and turn in his sleep, so hiding beneath
him is not the greatest hiding spot dude hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
(and Benny and Milo of course)

P.S.
The first poem is a lesson on driving on ice 🙂

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

Bridges Over Icy Streams

Scenes of stories
time has told
are sometimes as
times so cold.
Bridges over
icy streams
might be as some
moments dreams.
Bridges that are
glitter bright
might be found
in day or night.
Streams of water
bridged to view
might be danger
found to do.
For the bridges
that you see
might be frozen
a degree.
The bridges over
icy streams
might be worse than
vision seems.
So you might
be better found
to take some heed
to slow on down.
Yet so lightly
not with brakes,
for that churns
some big mistakes.
Ease the gas
and coast with care
and you’ll find
you have a prayer.

Christmas Lights

Seasons shadows
starry bright
seem to display
in the night.
Glistening visions
far and wide
display Christmas
lights applied.
Lights that twinkle
or just glow
display brightly
in the snow.
People singing
a Christmas song
as some others
sing along.
Shadows in the
nights we see
are of ones
with Christmas tree.
On their car
to home they go
driving through
the Christmas snow.
Then as home lit
lights are found
the tree is put
with gifts around.
Children laughing
joyously
happy for what
all they see.
Then as nighttime
fills the air
Santa comes with
love and care.
He is making
seasons sights
found within the
Christmas lights.
Jingling jangling
in his sleigh
delivering before
the light of day
and in the dreams
of girls and boys
are the wonderful
Christmas toys.
When morning comes
and they arise
the gifts that Santa
fill their eyes.
Christmas lights
enhance the view
with their red, green
white and blue.
The parents wake up
hearing laughter
that is coming
from thereafter.
Their children found
what Santa brought
maybe a little
then a lot.
Mom and dad then
come to see
what was under
the Christmas tree.
Songs of Christmas
are then sung
blessings of
Lord God’s Own Son.
Sharing glimmers
smiling faces
that which Jesus
then enlaces.
Then they just
enjoy the sights
found within
the Christmas lights.

Times Very Essence

As many remember
the times they recall
they might also remember
each stumble and fall.
The shortcoming days
that painted their sight
might become visions
that turned out just right.
Times very essence
has ways of displaying
our lessons from mishaps
while bodies are greying.
Age to age turnstiles
with seasonal meadows
times very essence
displays in the shadows.
Try to remember
what all that’s gone by
as times very essence
the best till you die.

Holiday Treasures

Now as the days pass
Thanksgiving to Christmas
many find decades
with lesser of Jesus.
Connecting their ventures
from then unto there
while holiday treasures
might seem less of prayer.
It’s us in our journeys
with pathways we go
that turn all the treasures
into fields of woe.
The scenes we’ve forgotten
and left far behind
are the holiday treasures
that we need to find.
Each light that will glitter
and song that is sung
is part of the blessing
with Christmas bells rung.
Together with family’s
found far and wide
are the holiday treasures
with Jesus inside.
You might be of distance
from your family,
but hearts filled with prayer
can go sea to sea.

Just But A Moment

With many just waiting
for times early dawn
while minutes of seconds
just move right along,
there is such a moment
that many will lose
while thinking it’s just but
a moment to choose.
So often our gateways
to minutes of time
are discerned as some moments
of a lemon or lime.
Just but a moment
might be so much more
and all that you wasted
you find you adore.
Regretting the blessings
you let slip away
as just but a moment
of times other day.
Look now before you
and see what is there,
for just but a moment
might answer your prayer.
Blessings from mishaps
that time does record
might just but a moment
be your own reward.
Then all the passages
travels of time
your just but a moment
will fill with Divine.

Wondrous Thoughts

Known as a story
that many will read
Jesus gives blessings
that so many need.
Those Christmas stories
that many will share
speak of a manger
filled with much prayer.
That star that delivered
wise men from afar
brought others to Jesus
God’s bright shining star.
The story went on then
while telling so true
how Jesus is going to
save me and you.
The animals danced greatly
to God’s Only Son
while the drummer boy beat
a song on his drum.
Those wondrous thoughts
that still now survive
are what that keep many
with blessings alive.
For Jesus Christ surely
brought us all a prayer
filled with His blessings
and God’s love and care.

The Stirring Breeze

Beginning by morning
I see all the trees
blowing and swaying
in the stirring breeze.
Tree limbs a flailing
as rhythms are blown
while the stirring breeze
displays a cologne.
A fragrant moment
that says wintertime
blows in like blessings
a breezy design.
Then as the evening
is leaving its sight
the stirring breeze blows on
and into the night.
A wintertime chill then
is found so to say
as the stirring breeze blows on
from night unto day.

Childhood Christmas

Children playing
in the snow
while a snowman
starts to grow.
Snowballs flying
in the air
while kids play
without a care.
Childhood Christmas
brings to mind
all the best
from time to time.
Thoughts of Santa
and sleigh bells
with the stories
Christmas tells.
Sights of houses
lit up bright
as they’re seen
in dark of night.
Seasons flavors
tasty true
childhood Christmas
gives to view.
Scenes remembered
childhood days
were the best of
wondrous ways.
Childhood Christmas
that I know
was the best
with Christmas snow.
Maybe store bought
or TV
Christmas snow
I’d surely see.
Scenes all lit up
I could find,
my childhood Christmas
frame of mind.

Snowman’s Flurry

He stands there watching
the days pass by
as snow will flurry
from the sky.
He stands so big
and round and tall
watching and waiting
with children’s snowball.
The snowman’s flurry
begins with a glance
and then in a story
begins to dance.
with a hat and a cane
and carrot nose
he stands there watching
as it snows.
Then in a moment
when no one can see
the snowman’s flurry
will then come to be.
Walking with footsteps
of imagination
so round and jolly
with less acceleration.
For a snowman walking
is not so easy
in wintertime
so snowy and breezy.
He counts each step
he’s able to take
and looks and sees
the marks he makes.
The footprints made
by his design,
were that of children
in a line.
Rolling the snowman
to point and place
to give him another
smiling face.

Sorrow’s Call

If now you’re saddened
by your passing days
seeking for the seasons of
better displays.
When sorrow’s call with
minutes so sad,
try to remember
the good times you had.
Don’t let the sadness
to be all you see.
Look for the gladness
in your history.
Sorrow’s call might be
all you can view,
but surely when days pass
good will shine through.
Don’t let a sorrow’s call
live in your head.
Count your many blessings
and find peace instead.

Haiku
for Nov 29, 2013

Many found judging
are often worse than those judged
and need look at self.

Within a snowstorm
is an imagination
with wrong directions.

The winds of winter
blow in with a chill of frost
that flavors the air.

A child’s Christmas dream
is filled with Santa and toys
that come Christmas Eve..

Beyond hearts beating
are rhythms that ones don’t hear,
but feel deep inside.

Passionate people
are often not obvious
and hidden inside.

Links to a turnstile
might be within a heartbeat
found as mysteries.

Changes in our lives
could look to be for the worse
and be much better.

As summertime fades
it brings forth fall and winter
as winds start to blow.

Looking through windows
leaves a single perception
that does not feel it.

Belief in spirits
allows you to not feel dumb
if one speaks to you.

Life is a pattern
that we make differently
with our own viewpoints.

Scenes of a dreamer
hold keys to a perception
that only they see.

Morning comes alive
as nighttime fades from our sight
leaving sunshine skies.

Neediness of time
displays many things wanted
that we do not need.

While in a storm cloud
you might not see the rainbow
that will form after.

Looking too often
might prevent a true surprise
that could be the best.

Clinging to a vine
might prevent destinations
from becoming made.

Morning times shadows
are as glimpses of viewpoints
that might have gone by.

Within a screen door
is the chance for raindrops
to be seen and felt.

Pouring emotions
will either make a full glass
or one that’s leaking.

Having a true friend
will help with moments ahead
when sadness is found.
