by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

As summer creeps up on us, we find more and more harried travelers edging their way toward the airports of our nation. In case you’ve not flown lately, things have not gotten a bit more pleasant. It astounds me that a technological establishment that comes up with quality of life inventions literally by the day, has yet to develop a few simple doo-dads

Character Counts

The two women and one man stood just outside the entrance, oblivious to the rest of us. They were engrossed in conversation on current politics. And they kept getting louder and louder.

I soon found myself alone, still trying to hear what was being presented as a typical day while Gerald Ford was in the Oval Office of the White House. Everyone else had given up. The conversation raging between

The Poosey Digest: Questions Abroad

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

“So. . .George Bush. Is he an evil man?”

PooseyDigest_WPThat’s the first question the young Russian student asked me when we sat down for coffee one night in a Moscow coffee house. He was referring to George the First and the poor kid had been fed such a line of propaganda that he was truly afraid that the elder Bush was going to

We recently celebrated Memorial Day. We rightly remembered those who gave everything they had to give. We gave honor where honor was due. We saluted men and women who gave their very lives in defense of our cherished freedoms. We maintained and decorated graves of war heroes and others all across this great country of ours. There are other great things that we ought to remember.

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

It was one of the freakiest things that ever happened in our neck of the woods and only many years later were we able to piece the catastrophe together. I’m still not sure I have the whole story, but here it is as best I can relate it:

Packin’ a Roll of Quarters

I don’t go to the mall much. It hasn’t always been this way.

I grew up as a tag-along to a mother whose Holy Grail was in quest of the best bargain. At first I thought whatever my hometown could offer was the outer limits of her search. But life’s perceptions certainly changed with the development of shopping malls.

Dw.cdrMy boyhood hometown transformed from farming community to bedroom community right

Good Thinking: Keep My Memory Green

by Dr. Don Kuehle

Charles Dickens, in his story “The Haunted House,” tells about a chemist who was tormented by unhappy memories. One evening as he is seated by the fireplace, a spirit appears and offers to solve his problem — for a price, of course. The chemist is so terrified and tormented that he accepts the spirit’s offer.

Is the Grass Greener?

Originally, the proverb said, “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” The observation likely stems from watching cattle stretch across the fence to nibble a blade of grass while standing in a lush green pasture.
