I'll never live it down

I have to see this sight

Could be the best

Magpie 73- Foul!



There once was a guy named Saul

who loved to play basketball

His size was immense

And he was totally dense

Not wanting to share the ball

Magpie #72-Family Garden

Wheat Field with Rising Sun, Vincent Van Gogh, 1889


I grew up with a vegetable garden
Rinsing fresh lettuce into a bowl
Scooping up warm cherry tomatoes
Popping crunchy pea pods into my mouth
The soil enriched meals mingle into memories
Of soft summer evenings sweet with family
