Magpie Tales #307 Quite Bareable

Painting by Cesar Santos

There once was a lass named Nancy
Who enjoyed posing in her panties
Said she with a smile
It's easier to beguile
Wearing lacy bits that are scanty
Thanks to Tess Kincaid for Magpie Tales!

These so called leaders of today
Ignoring stark lessons of the past
Power and greed are their mantras
Brushing away Karma they will not last

And not just by a Strawberry tart

Happy Birthday to my Mother
My mother with my little sister Nina

The six of us had a wonderful mother-
Here she is at 42 with the youngest-
our little sister Nina.  She passed away 23 years later and a day does not go by that
 something will remind me of her.
Big thanks to Sandee for Awww Monday !!!
