"Sometimes siblings can get in each other's space." - Gisele Bundchen


Siblings

I would never
wish for space
between me and you.
We stick together
like paper and glue.
You are the yin
to my yang,
we are different
and the same.
I am loud
and outgoing,
you are quiet
and soft-spoken.
We are the perfect
mix-and-match.
I wouldn't wish
to live this life
with anyone else.

Hey Mister
Where you going in such a hurry
Don't you think it's time you realized
There's a whole lot more to life than work and worry
The sweetest things in life are free
And there right before your eyes

You got to Stop and Smell the roses

The Nap Taker
by Shel Silverstein

No - I did not take a nap -
The nap - took - me
off the bed and out the window
far beyond the sea,
to a land where sleepy heads
read only comic books
and lock their naps in iron safes
so that they can't get took.

And soon as I came to that land,
I also came to grief.
The people pointed at me, shouting,
"Where's the nap, you thief?"
They took me to the courthouse.
The judge put on his cap.
He said, "My child, you are on trial
for taking someone's nap.

"Yes, all you selfish children,
you think just of yourselves
and don't care if the nap you take
belongs to someone else.
It happens that the nap you took
without a thought or care
belongs to Bonnie Bowlingbrook,
who's sittin' cryin' there.

"She hasn't slept in quite some time -
just see her eyelids flap.
She's tired drowsy - cranky too,
'cause guess who took her nap?"
The jury cried, "You're guilty, yes,
you're guilty as can be.
But just return the nap you took
And we might set you free."

"I did not take that nap," I cried,
"I give my solemn vow,
and if I took it by mistake
I do not have it now."
"Oh fiddle-fudge," cried out the judge,
your record looks quite sour.
Last night I see you stole a kiss,
Last week you took a shower,

"You beat your eggs, you've whipped your cream,
at work you punched the clock,
You've even killed an hour or two,
we've heard you darn your socks.
We know you shot a basketball,
you've stolen second base,
and we can see you're guilty
from the sleep that's on your face.

"Go lie down on your blanket now
and cry your guilty tears.
I sentence you to one long nap
for ninety million years.
And when the other children see
this nap that never ends,
no child will ever dare to take
somebody's nap again."

Eye On the Ball

Keep your eye
On the ball
Wait for it
To be thrown

Lots of slobber
On the ball
Flings off
Through the air

Off they race
Fast as lightning
Quicker than
The blink of an eye

Before you know it
Back again
Ball in mouth
Panting for more

Who needs new toys when we got this brand new dirt hill!

Monday, April 10, 2017






Spring Break Fever:
She was an independent, sarcastic lady who's biggest joy was being snuggled in a thick blanket reading her latest suspense novel. He was the social butterfly, the guy who wants to be everyone's best friend. They seemed like a unlikely match, but spring break has a way of bringing even the most unlikely pair together.
Baco went mudding with the boys, while Gianna was nature walking in deep thought.
He slept in late and played until the sun went down, and she was up at the crack of dawn so she could watch the sun rise over the pond.
They were both enjoying their spring break and having the time of their lives, it seemed as though nothing could make their vacation better. That is, until they met.
Gianna had just started a new book and couldn't postpone reading it any longer. She hunkered down under a tree, but before she even opened the book she was captivated by a strong, blonde fella swimming in the pond with some buddies. He was so carefree and spunky that she couldn't look away. When Baco caught her looking their eyes locked and Gianna could feel her face turning a deep red, so like any girl would she quickly glanced away embarrassed that she had been discovered. When she looked back Baco was walking towards her, her heart panicked as she tried to play it cool and hide her rosy cheeks with the book.
He walked up to her and sat down. He was calm, cool and collected; or at least that is how he seemed on the outside. On the inside however, his tongue felt like it had outgrown his mouth and he had completely forgotten his own name. They sat their for a moment in awkward silence, until a hello burst from them both followed by uncontrollable laughter. It was a instant connection, chemistry you just can't make up. They spent the rest of their spring break inseparable.
Baco joined Gianna every morning to watch the sunrise, and she went for evening adventures with him.
Everything was perfect, but sadly spring break only last's a week and it was time for Baco to return home. They said their sad goodbyes, but vowed to return next year and pick up where they left off.
What does the future have in store for these two love birds?
Will Baco and Gianna find each other again?
Why didn't they exchange emails or something?
What book was Gianna reading?
Tune in next time on Spring Break Fever!

Who said
You needed sunshine
For a perfect day
When rain
Makes fun puddles
To splishy-splashy in

Springtime

the grass returns
from hibernation
brown and soggy,
thirsting for the sun
empty bird houses
wait for their guests
to return

the fish awake
and bubble
to the surface
feeding on the bugs
that find it warm enough
Robin's snag worms
from the warm dirt

Springtime
where the sweet sun
kisses awake
the earth

#nationalpuppyday

Back in my day
As a Weimaraner puppy
I was a wild child
Rebellious against silly
Human contraptions
Like doors and gates
Opening them upon my choosing
To let myself and my friends
Out of a room
Or back into a park

Back in my day
I was fast
And smart
But who am I kidding
I've still got that fire
To figure things out
To open up gates
I just happen to take
A few more naps...

The Lazy Dogs ("The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars)

Mack: Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna take a nap
Don't feel like getting off the couch
So leave me and Gracie alone
'Cause today I swear we're not doing anything
I'll be lounging on the couch
Just chillin' with my buddy

Star Buddy: Wanna go for a run?
Mack: Yeah, okay...
Gracie: I'd enjoy that.

Bowie: LuLu and I present...
LuLu: Fun facts about Saint Patrick's Day!
Bowie: We should really wear blue.
LuLu: Why is that?
Bowie: His color was actually "Saint Patrick's blue," a light shade. The color green only became associated with the big day after it was linked to the Irish Independence Movement in the late 18th century.
LuLu: Well did you know that Saint Patrick was actually British!
Bowie: What?!
LuLu: He was born to Roman parents in Scotland or Wales in the late fourth century.
Bowie: Did you know that the Irish take Saint Patrick's Day seriously?
LuLu: So Do New Yorkers!
Bowie: It's a national holiday in both Ireland and Northern Ireland.
LuLu: New York City's Saint Patrick's Day Parade is one of the world's largest parades! And, since 1762, marchers have traipsed up Fifth Avenue on foot! They don't allow floats, cars, or other modern trappings!
Bowie: In Chicago they dye the Chicago River green! They've been doing it ever since 1962!
LuLu: That was fun!
Bowie: Yeah!
Bowie & LuLu: HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY EVERYONE!
