The Days of Lawlessness

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I miss the desperados, the days of lawlessness.

PooseyDigest_WPWhen I was a youngster living in a farm community the legal rights were fudged a bit because of pure necessity when it came to driving. While the law books said that a young man or woman had to be 16 years old, the fact was that if your legs were long enough to reach

The Next Hillside

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI can imagine the scene. Og the caveman wakes in his cave, stretches, belches up a bit of the mastodon nuggets from the night before, looks over and sees his wife Ogala still sleeping by the fire, then walks out into the cool Pleistocene morning. He looks across at the next hillside. Ever since he was a little Neanderthal he had been curious

It’s Plumb Patriotic

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt’s a tradition as old and storied as church potlucks and yearly prostate exams …each Midwestern town must hold its annual talent show, and Poosey proudly and sometimes less proudly steps up with its own version. The senior divisions of talent shows have pretty much dwindled to nothing in the last decade. Perhaps we learn something as we grow older.

Give Time

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPOlga wouldn’t leave her porch. I was just a kid running wild and loose along the roads ’round Poosey when I noticed her sitting there. She’d come out early that morning to take her usual place in the wooden rocker on her porch, coffee in hand, but unlike her usual practice of watching the traffic, listening to the birds, then going back inside

Signs of Civility

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

For all his faults, and they stretch the length of my arm, husband Herb has some good things going for him. Above all the man believes in civility. Yes, he hollers and gripes and moans like a whiney child at times, but when it comes to public behavior the guy is delightfully a product of good upbringing. In public at least, he knows

A Man with Passion

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can’t think of the Fourth of July without remembering him. Hoolie McBride was the town carpenter, mechanic, roof fixer, dog tamer, and sometimes Bingo caller at our annual Burgoo. He was a scruffy little fellow who managed to always sport about six days of beard, and some said that he wore his oil-stained pants for so many days that he had no

Let’s Go Postal

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can remember as a youngster running in to get the mail and hearing the peep-peep of baby chickens in the back room. An indulgent postmaster would let me go back to look at the chicks peeking their little beaks out of the round holes in the shipment box. I recently read where it was only last year when some legislative body made

The Need for Character

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Now and again I’ll read something that just jumps off the page and smacks me in the heart. Such was the case as I was digesting a new book by New York Times writer David Brooks. He titled the work “The Road to Character,” it’s a study of what’s happened inside our hearts and minds in America during the past decades.

Put Fun Back in Flying

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
