It was a joy for Karen to watch her daughter, Rosy spin around playing ‘pin the tail on the donkey’. “Look at her” Karen said to James. “She’s having so much fun with that game”.
“Yes, she is easy to please. But, her birthday party was yesterday. Don’t you think we should take that thing down?”
Karen stared back at her daughter, who was in bliss with some colored pieces of paper. “No..let her enjoy it, while she still can.”
Karen smiled knowing that simple childhood joys fade away far too fast.

Then, true bliss accepted her vulnerable beauty
Love’s tears returned

Where she fell in love with a wool gathering man named Drew

My buddy, Curtis was quite the storyteller. Every morning at the diner, he would share with us all a tall of some sort. They usually involved celebrities. I honestly don’t know if Curtis believed his stories, but we still were entertained. This morning’s yarn was a “Curtisdoozie”. He proclaimed he knew a guy who was related to someone who knew “The Beatles”. Curtis claimed,
“Most of them Beatles songs had different titles”.
Me and the boys smirked.
“Helter-Skelter’s original name was Heebie-Jeebies”.
I started to laugh thinking about poor John Lennon screaming “HEEBIE-JEEBIES!”
Curtis grinned at me, knowing full well that this was just “Beatles-bologna”.
