Kids Love For Animals

Kids Love For Animals ( Poem )

Children’s favorite shows are of animals

I have hours in a playlist that are laughable

Like a camera pecking rooster and fun monkeys

To a mom and a baby miniature donkeys

Videos of wild turkeys and charming geese

Ducks in water and chicks learning to speak

Dazzling ostrich and many free birds

Some you would not want to move towards

A large unique animal is the alligator

The total opposite of the…

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Create designer Christmas tree

From squash, to bread, and fun cookies

Instructions made so easily

One from red hat society

Home from the heart season theme

Star wars made a holiday scene

Wonderland can be of little lambs

Making ornaments with your hands

Whatever your style or budget

Your personal touch can be tropic

Focal point of your home can be

Inspired by glamorous jewelry

As McCormick is running the course

Agricultural machinery Competition

Fun family oriented…

Woodsmen Day

Woodsmen Day ( Poem)

Sport using handsaws

With a toothed edge blade

One or two handed sawing

On a woodsmen fair day

Traditional log rolling

Is a lumberjacks technique

Style used in river driving

The illustration is unique

Springboard tree is branchless

With live action you can’t beat

Platform board is dangerous

A risk if you compete

Block ax chopping

Is a loggers sport indeed

Hard on your back swinging

Leelanau County Trails around the dunes - FIND YOUR PATH

In the past few months fortune has been with me to find a friend who is willing and actually has a goal to check off many of the Leelanau trails. So far some of the trails have been Alligator Hill; the 2 mile stretch of the Heritage Trail from Glen Haven to Glen Arbor (did the stretch from Glen Haven to the dunes twice last year); Windy Moraine Trail and Shauger Hill.

I enjoyed Alligator Hill the most traversing the easy and moderate hiking loops. The two views on the easy…

Determining Whether Remodeling is Worth the Money

There is always a point when homeowners look at their homes and wonder if it is time to remodel.  Just like everything else in life, homes need to be spruced up every once in a while in order to look nice.  Sometimes it is only a bathroom or a basement that needs a little extra tender love and care, and other times the whole house needs a make over.  No matter the project, money is always a factor.  U.S. News suggests that homeowners be careful when making the decision to remodel.  Even if…

Wishing Witch

Wishing Witch

My Halloween screenplay is funny as can be

It’s funny how witchcraft is what we need to see

Brewing up trouble with all your classmates

The teacher will get angry, make no mistake

Crazy riddles from a child can be so scary

Being her classmate leaves you feeling wary

You may start a princess and end as a boar

As her riddles will leave you in an uproar

Will you return to normal after all this nonsense

Is the question…

Broken Souls

Broken Souls

I talk to producers of books and screenplays

My tormented farm life strayed my way

Strict sheltered home and harsh realities

Today’s modern world and mental tragedies

Constantly under pressure, was pure and healthy

I find I was repressed by everything I’d see

Never exposed to the world most know

By turning on t.v and watching a show

The day finally came, I had to leave home

To the hard tough world, I felt so…

The Warmth Of Homemade

The Warmth Of Homemade

Cooking, freezing, and raspberry jam

Beef stew, salmon pie, and egg rolls out of ham

Quick party foods and a hunters breakfast

Castle cake, feather bed, and little trees for Christmas

Cakes of Dolphin, Smurf, and Muno too

Butterfly, Barbie Doll with thousands of views

Baby items, aprons, and dresses to sew

You can make your own maple syrup, you know

Wreaths, snowmen, and Christmas logs are a craft
