B, is constantly being awaken in the middle of the night by beautiful females. I apologise for not responding today, it was a trying day. Those darn squiggly lines revealed little to me this day. I got Mary's, but did not get Sirena's. Please send again Sirena. Stay safe and stay well. Friends are hard to find and keep these days. I'd hate go lose either of you. Night. :-):-):-) X hugs.

Sirena says:
<<Please send again Sirena.>>
Email? Or multiple hugs and smooches?

And you won't lose me, B.

PS: If you got your butt over to DBT and said hi to Ed and Twinny, I could send you a PM. (private message, not a prime minister. Although.... now there's a thought!)

So glad it wasn't worse for you Miss M., but a hole in the roof is not a good thing. The same thing happened to my son's neighbor in a hurricane (right through their bedroom roof), but he, being a Public Safety Officer hustled them out in the storm to safety and scared the living daylights out of his young daughter. She was then so terrified of hurricanes she had to see a therapist. All they had to do was knock on my son's door to be taken in. Their huge pine tree fell on the Jungle Jim, barely missing their house.

This year they had the ceiling of (yes, again, the master bedroom) at their beachhouse collapse from all the rain with the latest hurricane, but fortunately no one was there, and insurance covered all the damage.

We're still over 100 heat index. I just stay inside where the a/c works well, but not everyone is so fortunate. Oddly enough, a 94 yr.old lady from NY still leaves her door open all the time except when she is asleep.

Reply to your suicide note*
by Baby Rainbow

* i never spoke about my friends death before and this was my attempt to reply to her suicide note. *

to twinkle toes,

you left me a letter so I'm going to reply.
starting with saying you didn't have to die.
i know it might sound selfish,
sound like like I'm being cruel.
but you promised me you wouldn't,
then left me like a fool.
you kept saying sorry, over and over again.
you said you didn't mean it,
but all you felt was pain.
how can you expect me to forgive you?
we came so far after,
everything we went through.
until you broke this promise,
it then became a lie.
you left me without even saying goodbye.
i hope you know i hate you for leaving.
this stupid promise you had me believing.
how on earth could we be best friends?
your suicide means our friendship ends.
i cant believe i trusted you,
i thought the world of you.
but it was never going to last,
but only you knew.
as we knew each other for longer and longer,
our friendship grew stronger and stronger.
then all of a sudden,
your body on the ground.
as i approach you,
there is no sound.
i now doubt that you ever understood me.
and its not like your here to disagree.
all i ever wanted was your friendship and trust,
but all of a sudden it crumbled to dust.
you left me with nothing, hurting alone.
as my heart broke, it turned to stone.
my love for you had disappeared.
as you had done what i had feared.
each night i walked to visit your grave.
now I'd rather visit an unknown cave.
you make me so angry,
so hurt inside.
now i want to commit suicide!
i want to fly,
into the midnight sky.
seeing you reach for me,
as you hear me cry.
i will not laugh,
i will not smile.
I'd simply quiz you for a while.
asking why you killed yourself?
left me perched upon the forgotten shelf.
I've always missed you,
and i do still.
but i have never forgave you,
and i never will.
i cut myself deep,
night after night.
wishing i could just fade out of sight.
i tried to end it all today,
nothing in my head would go away.
take a look at my arm,
read what it says.
it shouts your name,
in so many ways.
Ive scratched it, cut it,
burnt it too.
all because i thought of you!
you make me sick,
you make me scream.
i stay up all night,
I'm scared to dream.
somehow i hope this you can read.
as i slit my wrists and make them bleed.
i know we'll meet again one day,
and i will have lots more to say.
but until then,
I'll say goodbye.
think of your name,
sit here and cry.
but just don't think,
that your my friend!
or that this hatred will ever end.
every promise you made,
lie you told,
all the words you said.
all the times you betrayed me,
left me thinking just one thing...

...i think I'm glad my best friend's dead!!!

For my Beautiful British Beauty, a little something for when it's toe dipping time.

A Song from the Suds
a poem by Louisa May Alcott

A Song from the Suds

Queen of my tub, I merrily sing,
While the white foam raises high,
And sturdily wash, and rinse, and wring,
And fasten the clothes to dry; 
Then out in the free fresh air they swing,
Under the sunny sky.

I wish we could wash from our hearts and our souls
The stains of the week away,
And let water and air by their magic make
Ourselves as pure as they; 
Then on the earth there would be indeed
A glorious washing day!

Along the path of a useful life
Will heart's-ease ever bloom; 
The busy mind has no time to think
Of sorrow, or care, or gloom; 
And anxious thoughts may be swept away
As we busily wield a broom.

I am glad a task to me is given
To labor at day by day;
For it brings me health, and strength, and hope,
And I cheerfully learn to say-
"Head, you may think; heart, you may feel;
But hand, you shall work always!"

Louisa May Alcott

Monday's Child (Nursery Rhyme)
Submitted by: Jill
Author: Unknown
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child must work for a living,
But the child that's born on the Sabbath day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Daddy Fell into the Pond

 Everyone grumbled. The sky was grey.
We had nothing to do and nothing to say.
We were nearing the end of a dismal day,
And then there seemed to be nothing beyond,
Daddy fell into the pond!

And everyone's face grew merry and bright,
And Timothy danced for sheer delight.
"Give me the camera, quick, oh quick!
He's crawling out of the duckweed!" Click!

Then the gardener suddenly slapped his knee,
And doubled up, shaking silently,
And the ducks all quacked as if they were daft,
And it sounded as if the old drake laughed.
Oh, there wasn't a thing that didn't respond
Daddy Fell into the pond!

Alfred Noyes

A special greetings to my Beautiful British Beauty, a poem of beauty much like yourself. Did not our God create all such beautiful creatures,

To a Butterfly
  by: William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

Stay near me-do not take thy flight!
A little longer stay in sight!
Much converse do I find in thee,
Historian of my infancy!
Float near me; do not yet depart!
Dead times revive in thee:
Thou bring'st, gay creature as thou art!
A solemn image to my heart,
My father's family!
Oh! pleasant, pleasant were the days,
The time, when, in our childish plays,
My sister Emmeline and I
Together chased the butterfly!
A very hunter did I rush
Upon the prey:-with leaps and springs
I followed on from brake to bush;
But she, God love her! feared to brush
The dust from off its wings.
