Of course its not really the Queen

Comment by Melodie Munro on February 23, 2014 at 5:21pm

This is a true account recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida:

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! GET OUT OF THE CAR!" The four men didn't wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then she realized why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee, and two 12-packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a carjacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun. No charges were filed.

Moral of the story? If you're going to have a senior moment...make it memorable!

Reasons My Son Is Crying: 19 of the best sobbers


Website Reasons My Son Is Crying was started by dad Greg Pembroke last year, who posted his own kids wailing for an array of mundane reasons. It became a viral sensation as parents added their own cry babies (girls too) - and hilarious reasons for their children's tears.


Here are the 19 ones that got us crying with laughter the most...

Famous Love Poem


Love's Language by Ella Wheeler Wilcox


How does Love speak?
In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,
And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
The quivering lid of an averted eye--
The smile that proves the parent to a sigh
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freak
Of bounding pulses that stand still and ache,
While new emotions, like strange barges, make
Along vein-channels their disturbing course;
Still as the dawn, and with the dawn's swift force--
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
In the avoidance of that which we seek--
The sudden silence and reserve when near--
The eye that glistens with an unshed tear--
The joy that seems the counterpart of fear,
As the alarmèd heart leaps in the breast,
And knows, and names, and greets its godlike guest--
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
In the proud spirit suddenly grown meek--
The haughty heart grown humble; in the tender
And unnamed light that floods the world with splendor;
In the resemblance which the fond eyes trace
In all fair things to one belovèd face;
In the shy touch of hands that thrill and tremble;
In looks and lips that can no more dissemble--
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
In the wild words that uttered seem so weak
They shrink ashamed in silence; in the fire
Glance strikes with glance, swift flashing high and higher,
Like lightnings that precede the mighty storm;
In the deep, soulful stillness; in the warm,
Impassioned tide that sweeps through throbbing veins,
Between the shores of keen delights and pains;
In the embrace where madness melts in bliss,
And in the convulsive rapture of a kiss--
Thus doth Love speak.

Written for my granddaughter on her 7th birthday. The blank spaces had our family names.

THE PERFECT LITTLE GIRL

When God was making Madison
He thought "what can I do"
To create a perfect little girl
To make a grandma's dream come true

He started with cute and healthy
Then added extra smarts
Then threw in lots of giggles
To lighten up our hearts

He made her eyes a great big blue
And put extra twinkles there
Then stroked her skin with angle dust
To make it soft and fair

He made her brave and made her strong
Part --- and part------
And made her big enough to share
So everyone could treasure

It's been seven years since God sent you
And I'm thankful everyday
That he heard the prayer from Grandma And sent the perfect little girl our way.

HAPPY VALENTINE DAY
PAPA AND I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Poem about Nature


This was brought on a few years ago in the midst of constant cries from activist groups to pay attention to the way we treat this earth that we live on.

© Joshua Isham


Our Mother Earth
© Joshua Isham


This mother Earth,
Who gives us life;
This mother Earth,
Heart filled with strife,

We love her not,
Though love we should;
Her death we plot,
For life's "own good";

She gave us air, and food, and home,
That's not enough we humans scream;
With greedy lust our mouths do foam,
With evil hopes our eyes do gleam;

Her air we fill,
With smoke and death;
Ourselves we kill,
For lack of breath;

The sea once clean,
Now choked with waste;
To drink we fear,
Will death make haste;

The soil once pure,
And full of life;
Now barren sand,
Of farmer's strife;

No longer she,
Can stand our "love";
Now we must flee,
Like scattered dove;

She gave us all,
Unto the end;
Now we appalled,
Our lives defend

Spiritual Poem about Nature


This is a poem to remind all of you guys who ever felt like giving up to remember what's inside of you. © Kate


My Soul
© Kate


My soul is courage flying like a dove
My soul is wisdom and knowledge
bursting like a horse galloping
My soul is understanding like a puppy
My soul is graceful like a dolphin swimming in the sea
My soul sings like a bird tweeting its own songs
My soul is unique like one snowflake in many billions
My soul is happy to be this way
