I am writing Poetry again....trying harder, and I am trying to find the old poems that I have written in the past, some of which have been published and those are easy to find because I have a copy of the books they were published in. Sooo, forgive me for asking for TIME to complete my search and I will post many of the poems that I love.
I also have much more important news that never got to my Blog... I have a second Great-Grandchild,
his name is Finbarr Joseph Schatz (Finn for short) he was born September 8, 2014 and is passing his birth weight of 7 lb 10 oz very fast....Finn is now 5 months old and is a very happy smiling baby.
Look back again, real soon, please...more pictures and news to come.

High school, 1954
This is from the year after I started dating oldjoe
The act is "Bill Haley & the Comets", we actually did this at "George Diamond's Million Dollar Ballroom" on 26th and Wisconsin Ave. in downtown Milwaukee. We were pretty good . . . we still think we are, oh well.
The big difference is we were in color not black & white.
Just a bit of where we came from . . . "if you don't understand history you'll make the same mistakes expecting a different outcome".
No mistake here. We're very happy and proud of how it, and all of you, turned out. Great fun always.
Go for it, don't let anyone tell you what the hell to do, we never did

Christmas is now over. We all look
forward to the New Year now. New
Years Eve is normally one big happy,
joyful big party. Hats and Horns, loud
noise makers, and paper confetti, Beer
Wine, Egg Nog to drink, and anything
else you can think of people will drink.
Then of course there is food to eat.....
from Shrimp to Meatballs, and Potato
Chips to Nuts and everything in between
that one can think of.Eat yourself silly.
The Kiss that is given at Midnight to your
great better half, happens when the clock
strikes 12 and that BIG GLASS LITE BALL
in TIME SQUARE falls to the bottom.
Then it's time to dance and dance and still
more dancing, until it's time to go home.
The New Year has started and your good
intentions should be ready to start....
A Good New Year to All, and
2008 most PROSPEROUS.....
Tuesday, December 25, 2007
come and gone, now starts a new year
that you must be good and do good
deeds for others. I like to think of my
self as a do-gooder.....making people
happy when I have a chance makes me
very Happy in my own Heart. To me
that is the most important way to having
a wonderful, grandeur, extravagant and
Merry Christmas to All
and have a Prosperous 2008.

snow fall and the beautiful picture it
makes......I sorta miss the cold outside,
but I do not miss shoveling the snow.
I can just hear the bells that are on the
horses.... jingle, jingle, jingle pulling
a sleigh through the white covered snow
that is on the ground. Over the hills and
thru the woods......jingle, jingle, jingle
onto a warm, cozy fireplace that awaits
when we get to our Friends Home.
Dreaming I guess is what I do best. I have had
flashes in my head, to the point of being able to
hear the jingle of the bells thinking of that picture,
I can smell the wood burning, the coldness on my
cheeks and the wind blowing the snow that is
falling. Close your eyes just to see if the
picture just painted appears....to me it does.
can vote/rate a Poem that I have written....it is
in the right column on My Poetry Blog. Please go
and check it out.

Music Box Ornament.......mine is a Stocking.

November 1, 2007. We were very impressed with our Visitor,
can anyone help me identify what my visitor is??????
It had feathers that appeared to be black and grey, or maybe it
was dark brown and tan.....hard to tell looking through the
window.....about 15 inches tall, a 4 foot wing span as it flew off,
and a very serious beak with some even more serious Talons.
What do you think it is????????

"Nice Matter Award"
should be passed on to. Just give me a
day or two.....I must think about it!!!!!
“The Nice Matters award is awarded to those that are just nice people , good blog friends and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others that are there to lend support or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!”
My dear Friend from Art by Chrysti that I have had for many years was the last one that had been nominated and she has continued the tradition by saying "I could nominate so many people, but I have decided to choose just one…"
"She is absolutely one of the kindest souls I have ever met… I knew her years ago, when collecting paper dolls rocked my world, and have been fortunate enough to get to know her once again through my art. Thanks my dear, for truly being one of the nicest women I have ever met! She has also overcome some serious health issues, and somehow manages to remain a forceful bright light through it all… We could all learn something from you."
“Be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down.” - Jimmy Durante

up at Peggy's home in Weare, New Hampshire, on Lake
Horace.........what a beautiful site it was to see........a very

we saw the Double Rainbow*, well I was wrong when I said that.......
Uncle Dan took a picture of it and he is sending it to me; he has
more pictures that he took and will include at the same time.
Wednesday, June 27, 2007
went to help celebrate my Granddaughter's High School
Graduation. Grace....it was memorable.
I hope you believe this, but while there ....we
saw a Beautiful Double Rainbow* after a few
drops of rain.......No one had a camera to take
a picture of it.....so please believe me.........
My entire family went to help celebrate, and we
had a great time. Dan, Pete, Sam and Gracie's
friend Aric went fishing....pictures to follow. They
had a wonderful time.....Hannah, Katie and Sam
saw a 12" diameter turtle.....trying to go down the
stairs....he went "tail over head" a couple of times,
he didn't make it all the way. Grace had to stop her
car.....because a female moose was in front of it
and would not move......she blasted the horn....she
also blinked her headlights, and the moose finally
walked on across the road and Grace continued
on to Concord, it was dusk so Grace got a good look
at the moose, but of course, no camera with her.

That myth is more potent than history.
That dreams are more powerful than facts.
That hope always triumphs over experience.
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that Y love Y is stronger than death.
