The Name Game

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPWomen get pregnant. It happens and that’s a good thing. That’s how we get more women. A young friend of mine recently found herself in such a situation and she told me that her first task was to start thinking of baby names. I assume that although she called them “baby names” she expected the child to carry the moniker into adulthood. She

Existing Without a Cell Phone

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPThe two little girls sat on my sofa, carefully going over the various cookie choices. Every week seems to bring a new school fundraiser to my door and the kids in my neighborhood know I’m an easy touch so on some balmy afternoons they’re lined up on my porch. I scan the over-priced candles, greeting cards, and sausages then give everyone an order.

Worthwhile Silliness

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI had no idea what I was getting into, but when I’m dealing with Jill that’s often the case. Jill Briggsly ranks toward the top of our small town’s nutty characters and predictability is not her forte. The invitation arrived in the mail: “A surprise birthday! My house, 2 p.m. Tuesday. No gifts.” I made a wild guess that since Jill was hosting

Poosey Digest: Viral Vinegar

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPVinegar’s a good thing. You can use it to erase ink stains, clean your computer keyboard, scrub your window blinds, piano keys, and remove candle wax. It’s what makes salad dressing pop, puts the zing in barbecue sauce, helps turn cucumbers into pickles, and ketchup would be the poor stepchild of tomato sauce without it. But too much vinegar or vinegar in the

On the High End

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Herb and I seldom do much fancy dining, but every so often we’ll take in a high-end restaurant just to be reminded of what our high ends taste like. There’s nothing like a good meal in a classy place to sort of reward yourself of something you can make up later when you get home.

PooseyDigest_WPBut I noticed a recent trend in restaurant

Remember When People Talked?

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPAll I wanted to do was visit. Two old classmates were back in town for a wedding and we’d not seen each other in years. Since I was the local gal they asked me to pick out a restaurant and a time, then we’d meet for a long-awaited catch-up session. Things like this are always a bit scary as you wonder which of

Just Tryin’ to Stay Healthy

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPNo one in our fourth-grade class wanted to sit by Willa Reeder. Her mama came directly from Kentucky and hardly a week passed without us hearing some strange tales of Mrs. Reeder’s strange habits and incantations. But the worst of the lady’s ministrations was when she’d send her children to school in the winter with garlic tied around their necks. Mrs. Reeder claimed

Hey, Let’s Party!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt happens every winter. You stare out the window at the endless parade of snow and cold and ice and wind and you purposely turn off the weather channel when they talk about the forecast for Los Angeles and Miami. That person you married starts looking way too familiar and even your rugs start staring back at you with a dreariness that could

The Poosey Digest

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI’m not sure what to do with a 53-year-old can of green beans. There’s no expiration date since such labeling wasn’t required in 1962. In fact, I’d forgotten I had them until President Obama announced that we’d be ending our long-standing embargo with Cuba.

Once upon a scary time in our nation’s history, a round little Russian named Nikita sent a few shiploads
