Swallows from another year

Swallows

From another year,

We have small flock of busy birds,
Tough year for them.
Rain, rain, rain.

Another Year






Another Year,

We planted Zinnias.
The worn out butterflies
Were not daunted by the weather, 
Nor their accelerated aging.


They tend to their duties,
Instinctive and True,
Never seeing a zinnia before,

 No matter, the nectar a welcome meal
For a weary traveler.

Fantastic Musik!


So I finally got around to preview 
This music by Fantastic Negrito.

Today with good luck, I was able to cast
From Kindle to Samsung TV.

With my slow adoption of new technology,
Thankfully, Eventually it gets easier.

So I remembered the Fantastic Negrito started following
Me on Twitter. I looked him up,
Watched this video,
And said, wow, Sunday's post...
Fantastic!

Avengers

Avengers


Listened to Michelle McPhee, 3-6PM eastern time WMEX Boston on tune in app
Heard a man from the VFW.
It sparked a memory of a recent photo I finally captured...
It's from the Middlebury VFW.

And it led me to an article about this plane....

Taxing, Taking, Thinking, Trying, Telling.










From 2007, 
the year the town tried to sell our farm,
 9 months late paying taxes.
These scratchings seemed to make sense at the time.
Well, at least I understood.

It is a list of delinquent tax sale properties,
And people who were delinquent.


I believe we were isolated in seeing our property up for sale in 9 months.
They never told me.
Their abuse of power will never fail to affirm my
Cynicism
Nor will it fail to affirm my
Faith
That angels are found everywhere and
We can survive the barbs and tentacles of the
Greedy.

Knight's Tale and Music Link @GlennHughes





Knight's Tale

The Knight paused a moment
Before saddling his loyal mount, Thunder Strike.
They were heading out to save their World,
Their lands, their People, 
Their Kings.


From YouTube,
Glenn Hughes
Knights in White Satin,
Stellar!

Late Night Radio from the High Desert


Late Night Radio....

We stumbled onto a John Batchelor podcast in the WABC app
Nothing else on,
I need the radio!
somehow at 4 am Saturday I clicked a few buttons
and we listened to the Friday night interview.
You can find it at WABC NY

My first tweet meant well but I modified it to this today...



Last but not least,
Art Bell's theme song, performed as only Crystal Gayle can...
Link from YT, wow...



my notes:
wanted to tell Mom all day,
She loved to hear about what Art Bell was covering.
Still thinking of Mom, while Mom is gone,
I will dedicate this to her, and Dad, together again.
Fred and I listened to many many shows, reruns, always great.
We look forward to tuning in again.
