So, whatever, we change our minds a lot. Plus, we listen to other people. That's a skill. It's also a problem. Maybe Kevin isn't the right name. Here's the thing: What about Eula? What about Bixby? Or, Wally? Or, Autumn? Durn. I can't decide.


Okay, that's what I'm naming her. For sure. Absolutely. I pick her up at the end of the month. She's the one on the left.

Great Minds Think Alike


So, dear, dear, Ed sent me the following list (my additions from 9 on) re: chicken bones. Oh, to know a poet. My heart may, in fact, burst:

1. If chicken bones were horses then beggars would ride.

2. Life is just a bowl of chicken bones.

3. Get off my chicken bone.

4. A chicken bone in the hand is worth two in the bush.

5. A chicken bone in time saves nine!

6. Alas, poor Chicken Bones I knew him well.

7. Can't see the forest through the chicken bones.

8. A day without chicken bones is like a day without sunshine!

9. A rolling chicken bone gathers no moss.

10. Better to have known a chicken bone and lost than to have never had a chicken bone at all.

11. Chicken bon-a, chicken bon-a, men have named you ...

12. A watched chicken-bone pot never boils.
