Hello my friends

The snow stopped coming down early this morning and
our friendly neighborhood snowplow dude came and did
our driveway to the back of our car.  I might get out and
dig our car out tomorrow,  but of course it’s supposed to
snow a few more inches tomorrow LOL.  It’s –1 F right
now.  I went out and started up the car to let it run and
charge the car battery a bit,  being it seems our battery
is having trouble holding a charge in this cold.  So next
month when we get paid I will be buying us a new battery.
The one in it is the highest amperage that will fit in our
car.  I bought it the second year we were up here being
it was beginning to do what it’s doing now.  It’ll be OK
till we get paid.  I’ll just have to go out every evening
and start it up and let it run for about 15 minutes or so.
So,  what else is happening around the Pearce’s Place?
Not much.  We’re still doing our daily things.  Looking
for something good to watch on TV and playing with
the boys.  Benny and Milo are still as ornery as ever.
Benny is having a blast playing in the snow.  Sometimes
it’s hard to get him to come in the house,  but after a bit
the cold weather beats him out and he’s ready to come
in to warm up looking like a little snowball LOL.  Yep,
it’s been a winter wonderland express these past few
days :).  Benny and Milo are outside right now,  though
I’m pretty sure Milo is maybe ready to come back in
now.  He does his thing and is usually barking to come
back in right after.  Benny on the other hand will give
me those eyes like,  come out and play with me LOL.
This time he ran to the door and looked at me sort of
saying are ya gonna come out.  I said maybe tomorrow.
It’s too cold right now.  He paused a moment and then
came running inside.  I could swear that those boys
can understand me LOL.  Of course,  my nick name
is Animal ya know hehehe.  They can pretty much tell
by the tone of my voice and the words that I’m saying
what I am wanting them to do or not do.  I tell Milo,
you don’t want me to raise my voice do you?  I have
a loud voice and can yell even more loudly hehehehe.
He will most cases do as I have asked.  Benny is still
a pup and he’ll often test me hehehe,  but in the end
he obeys.  Right now Milo is behind me saying he that
he wants a treat,  but I told him to hush.  No more out
of him hehehe.  Benny went and laid down in his bed
and Milo laid down right behind me.  They’re good
boys.  Judy and I love them and they love us back :).
It’s time for next topic.  Judy and I went to Subway
last Wednesday and got us sub sandwiches and also
stopped by WalMart and bought us a few groceries.
I had to get our neighbor to jump our car off that day
being our old battery would barely turn over. Since
that day I have been going out each day and starting
the car and letting it run for a few minutes to charge
the battery :).   After I started the car up Friday
I drove to Houlton and went WalMart and got a few
things we forgot Wednesday and then stopped off and
got Judy and I some Dunkin doughnuts.  Judy was
still asleep.  LOL,  I took a few pictures of my trip
by just holding my camera near the dashboard and
snapping pictures.  Thank God our road wasn’t busy.
We do live out in the boonies ya know.  There were
a few cars,  but I stopped taking pictures until they
passed me by.  All of the pictures actually came out
pretty good.  They weren’t cockeyed and blurry :).
I made it home safely.  Being with only one good
eye and a low irreparable  potassium level, my right
eye gets weak very quickly,  so that was about the
max of my driving LOL.  I made it home in one piece.
I woke Judy and said ya want donuts and she sprang
up with a hungry look :).  The boys laid on the bed
waiting to see if they were gonna get some doughnuts,
but they only got some dough Not’s hehehe.  We had
donuts leftover for breakfast Saturday.  It snowed
some more Saturday and it snowed on into the night.
I could hear the snowplows going up and down the
road all night.  We’re expecting more snow Monday.
Though Monday’s temperature is supposed to be a
ridiculous high of 36 F.  It’s 0 F right now hehehehe.
It’s only supposed to be 36 F degrees for about an
hour tomorrow and then drop back down.  Weird or
what?  The high for Tuesday is supposed to be 9 F.
I think our car’s battery isn’t bad. It’s just having
trouble keeping up with the weather changes LOL.
I know I am hehehehe.  Both Judy and I are feeling
the aches and pains of the weather changes.  We’re
staying warm and that’s good.  The furnace hasn’t
needed me to reset it but once since I poured a can
of 911 oil treatment in the tank.  It might of had a
bit of moisture in it from last summer being it was
empty all the while.  That’s why it’s best to keep a
full tank of gas or near it.  Moisture will often be
acquired when a tank is empty or real low as the
sunshine beams in the early morning dew drops.
Ok next topic.  Hmm,  there’s not much else to tell.
The boys are both sleeping in their beds between
Judy and I.  Milo snores LOUD hehehe.  Benny is
slowly but surely beginning to snore.  Nothing like
his big bubba though LOL.  I just took a picture of
them lying there so peacefully 🙂  I sure wish I could
sleep that well.  For that matter I wish I could sleep.
It takes Judy every bit of a minute or so and she is
out.  It takes me sometimes 5 or 6 hours to be able
to nod off for a few minutes.  Sure wish something
would work to ease my pain and let me sleep,  but
there is nothing and trust me,  I have tried it ALL.
LOL oh well,  at least I cat nap and that’s better
than nothing hehehe.  My old body seems at times
to be alien to this world :).  Hehehe I’ve had a few
people say that I didn’t seem like I was human :).
I am LOL!  God has given me a different style of
format than others.  I know not why,  but I’m alive
and happy to see the snowflakes fall from the sky
and the sunshine make paintings with the clouds.
I might hurt every day,  but I am still thankful for
every breath I breathe.  Don’t let the pitfalls of
life to steal away your smiles.  Find a smile in the
blessings all around you.  Look up at the sky and
see the beauty.  Find someone frowning and give
them a smile.  You might be surprised at what a
little smile can do for you as well.  It might even
blossom into the real mccoy.  Say a prayer before
you start out your daily journey.  You might find
that prayer as a charged up battery helping you
to begin your day.  LOL Milo is snoring big time!
I guess it’s time for me to begin 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.  It
looks like I may have found a decent title,  but
I’ve gotta check to see if it’s not one that I have
already used.  Nope,  ain’t used it,  so here goes.

Every Breath

With every moment
a breath is to breathe
found as a turnstiles
time to believe.
Every breath surely
is one yet to do
when you awaken
to each day brand new.
Lose all the gasping
of terminal times
and paint some big smiles
in each days designs.
Find daily blessings
in all that you see
within every breath
the best you can be.
Don’t let your yesterdays
breaths to an fro
become as the only
way that you know.
For every breath will
give chances to breathe
another ways turnstile
which to perceive.

So,  there ya go.  I hope that came out in a way that
you understand it LOL.  If not, then maybe next time.
Milo just woke up and he’s at the watering trough :).
I think he woke up when I asked Judy what was for
dinner LOL.  Both of the boys got up and followed
her to the kitchen hehehe.  I might fix them some of
their canned dog food in a bit.  They have 2 pans of
dried dog food in the floor,  but they only eat it when
they are too hungry to be finicky hehehe.  It’s some
healthy food.  The canned food is Meatloaf and they
love it,  but I only give it to them ever so often being
I want them to eat the dried food, being it’s better
for them.  We do give them treats time to time,  but
I try to not over do it,  being they are not meant to
be eaten as a meal.  If they get grumpy and begin
barking at us to give them a treat I’ll point at the
pans in the floor and say,  eat that.  If that don’t
work,  I’ll pour a little onto their can food dishes
and they’ll eat it LOL.  Not so bright are they 🙂
Hehehe,  we love em.  Our home would be empty
without the clippety clop of these little boys and
their loving eyes followed often by barks hehehe.
Thank You God for all that You have done for us.
Now,  before my rambling becomes the length
of a freaking book,  I think it’s time for me to
be telling you what I tell you every week and
that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep,  10 more poems with 2 of them being sort
of Christmassy.  Also I wrote 22 more haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there.  I hope a few
of either or both find a way inside your heart.
Now it’s time for me to try and find that silly
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
wonderful and God filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now to find
that dad burned off switch that is horrible at
hide and seek LOL and I think I spotted it in
the midst of my aspirins hehehe.  How it got in
the bottle is a wonder ;).  Anyways,  Gotcha,
see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Timeless Portions

When stormy skies
come into view
there might be
a rainbow too.
Scenes well hidden
now and then
might be waiting
to begin.
Timeless portions
that life knows
might be as a
river flows.
Gathered fragments
river rocks
might be schools
of our hard knocks.
Things we see now
as distortions
might be lessons
timeless portions.

Things To Remember

In but a window
of yesterdays dream
things to remember
flow like a stream.
Things we have thought of
wanted so well
things to remember
might set them a sail.
Momentous journeys
our footsteps have made
become as shadows
of times lemonade.
Things to remember
that we have been through
could be the lessons
that say what to do.
For when repeated
doorways are found
things to remember
might come back around.

Seasons Doorway

As winters snow
falls down to Earth
it finds a place
to start rebirth.
Born as winters

Given as a
gift of love
white snow falling
from above.
is painted white
seasons doorway
such a sight.
Snowflakes falling
as a blessing
meant for me.

Signs Of Christmas

Colorful lights
red, green and blue
signs of Christmas
come in view.
A manger scene,
a star above
displays Christmas
and God’s love.
Signs of Christmas
are well found
when there’s snow
upon the ground.
A Christmas tree
stood proud to view
showing lights
red, green and blue.
A child so young
finds songs to sing
found within
a wanted dream.
Signs of Christmas
with a glance
are of blessings
song and dance.
Scenes of beauty
become found
with Lord Jesus
all around.

Nobodies Road

Times we’ve forsaken
and left there to die
a nobodies road
becomes it’s reply.
Times we’ve forgotten
that brought us much joy
become as nobodies
our times employ.
Allowing those moments
to slip through your grasp
might bring you sadness
that’s found from the past.
For nobodies road
is a journey through time
that oh so many
don’t claim yours or mine.
Sometimes it takes for
a nobodies view
to become as somebodies
that’s found thereunto.
Don’t let poor judgment
to loose out on time,
for nobodies road might
be so divine.

In The Stillness

A winters eve
brings snow of white
lasting on
into the night.
In the stillness
of the view
are flakes of white
and me and you.
We find ourselves
footprints in time
within footsteps
yours and mine.
Those quiet dreams
that flavors pour
in the stillness
is a tour.
Then our shadows
in the night
are of stillness
snow so white.
We stand and watch
the snow float down
as it lands
upon the ground.
In the stillness
we can see
hand to hand
both you and me.
Holding tightly
to the days
with our fervent
snowy gaze.
Flakes of white
fall here and there
giving us
an answered prayer.
A scene of beauty
far and wide
now best seen
from us inside.
Through the windows
we can find
in the stillness
peace of mind.

As Pages Turn

If you move on
with lying eyes
you might find
your own demise.
The scenes ones see
at daily glance
might not give
a truthful stance.
As pages turn
and books are found
a liars groove
might hit the ground.
Let your wording
show what’s true
that is really
within you.
If you move
with lives deceit
you might find
your own defeat.
You’ll lose the trust
within a friend
as pages turn
and tear and bend.

As A Flower

With every heart
there is a bud
as a flower
filled with blood
and this flower
found in time
can be loving
so divine.
As a flower
blooms in spring
a true heart
can shout and sing.
Giving essence
of its view
as it’s wanting
someone true.
Sometimes flowers
hearts we see
are just beating
for a bee.
Seeking solace
in one sting
and not waiting
best to bring.
Let your flower
have the time
to find true
its best design.
As a flower
bloom and grow
showing beauty
in your glow.
Don’t let weeds to
become found
all that’s planted
in your ground.
Let Lord Jesus
show the way
as a flower
day to day.

Till Then

With hearts waiting
till then is
as sought design.
On through springtime
then through summer
till then is
what’s over yonder.
Found as echoes
till then shows
wanted blissful
Christmas snows.
Scented winter
Christmas dreams
found within
some frozen streams.
Till then becomes
hearts desire
that’s found raging
as a fire.
Wanting till then
now to be
winters view
so Christmassy.

A Winters Realm

The sight of snowflakes
blowing around
there and to
with a windy sound
brings alive pictures
painted so free
in a winters realm
so abundantly.
The essence of cold
chills to the bone
in a winters realm
with snow that’s blown.
Turnstiles of breath
are enter through
with a winters realm
of there and to.
The mixture of scenes
connecting each page
are a winters realm
of age to age.
Displayed as ventures
that blow all around
is a winters realm
with sight and sound.
Seen as snowflakes
and heard as the wind,
a winters realm
will twist and bend.
It might have times
that might overwhelm
found in the journey
of a winters realm.

Looking for true love
might find you a disaster
if not the right time.

Pacing your running
will give you a better chance,
so do it in stride.

Before existence
is a time that existed
before you knew it.

Life in a hurry
will give you many worries
found through desire.

Seeking a pathway
without first looking both ways
could find disaster.

Winter brings snowflakes
as a seasonal delight
to outshine the cold.

Believing your own lies
could cause you to have no friends
when they see the truth.

Beginning walking
without first donning some shoes
might tear up your feet.

Minutes will tick on
with different walks of life
leaving ones confused.

Learning a lesson
is often tried and tested
as our lives move on.

Mornings will differ
as each season transpires
with its own viewpoint.

Without the seasons
each day would become boring
for we all need change.

Snow that lands in place
might soon become a snowman
if it’s not too cold.

The evergreen trees
hold the snow on their branches
as some ornaments.

On a windy day
you can hear snowflakes voices
speaking through the breeze.

Throughout a footstep
there are footprints laid in place
that tell where you went.

Seeing’s believing
or that’s what they always say,
but then maybe not.

Links to a person
are often found deep within
and not what you see.

Model citizens
could be a liars havoc
waiting to be found.

Trying to outdo
what another shows to be,
might find you empty.

Heartbeats of true love
will often find some sadness,
but love will give strength.

Seen as a picture
our days will often highlight
God’s every design.
