Off to Cape Cod.
See you when (IF?) I return!  ;)
Everybuddy STAY WELL!

<3 <3 <3

Enough nonsense ... let's get Sirius!

The Gypsy Moon, who begs her Light,
Knows all about the Haunts of Night;
Terrored by her bankruptcy,
She steals the Sun's gold solvency,
Pawns it for a silvered mien
And so begins her Regents Reign.
But Sirius, who owns this right,
Who knows the Moon belongs to Night,
Will not be stilled. He whispers "Thief!"
She turns, in shame, to hide her grief.

Time for some (more) silly stuff:

Veggie-Table Manners

Do not stare at potato eyes,
Or, if you do - apologize!
And when you butter up corn, dear,
No need to whisper in its ear.
Don't try to squeeze some whites or yolk
From an eggplant. Do not poke
A pickled pepper. Don't squish squash,
And please do not spear mint, by gosh!
Do not pinch herbs. Do not split peas.
Don't overdress your salad, please,
Just do good veggie-deeds all day,
And for your wilted lettuce pray.
Announcement: TaDah!

Coming soon (I hope) to a blog near you (i.e., Marytales), a little
Mary Tale I'm currently working on called "SARA, THE STOAT".
IF I finish it, illustrations and all, you will see it here.

Also ... I may have broken my painting *block*. Fingers (and
eyes) crossed! :)

Loopy Nonny? Really?

Okay ...
really. ;)

 (English translation of the above text):
My special older person name is Mary,
but I call her Nonny.  She is artistic because she
paints, sketches and writes. She's creative because
she writes her own songs. She is silly.  We call her
Loopy Nonny.  She is an artist.  I love playing with her and going plases with her.

Tommy ... Forever Loving

My Tommy ... Forever Loving

The above is my grandson Tommy's
school essay
written at the age of 9
on a sheet of looseleaf paper.
I treasure this more than gold
and carry a copy of it with me
wherever I go.
The original is on my refrigerator.
In case it's too hard to read
Tommy's handwriting up above,
I've typed a copy below,
just as Tommy wrote it:
Nonny (Grandma)
My Nonny is very old
but still plays with me. Last summer
she even had catch with me! Some-
times when she comes over she plays
video games with me. I think it is
amazing that she can still play with
me at her age!
When it's my birthday
Nonny gives me great presents. This
year for my birthday my mom and her
got me a $125 gift card
to toys-r-us! For Christmas she
got me two $50 video games. One
year for no reason at all she got
me and my brother a $250 chess
set! Presents are not the only
reason my nonny is my favorite
My nonny is fun. She
goes everywhere with my family.
Sometimes she goes to new york with
us even florida sometimes. She has
great plans (I guess that's where my mom
got it from). At disny me my mom, dad
and nonny all went on most
of the rides. They all took turns
going on the roller coasters with
me even my nonny!
Well you might think your
grandma is better, but I could
never ask for a better grandma
then my nonny.
