Time Marches Onward

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Some women marry partners. I married Herb. I said, “Herbie, I think this calls for a celebration!”

“Of what?”

“Thirty years! This makes 30 years for the Poosey Digest!”

“I agree. The Black Plague only lasted four and didn’t do near as much damage.”

“Herb!”

“The Great Chicago Fire only went for three days.”

“Herb!”

“And some of them were insured. Your column

The Heroes of Winter

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m sure you’ve been there. You sit in the store’s parking lot, the temperature hovering somewhere between chilling and killing as you try to summon up the courage to get out of the car and make a break for the automatic doors. You gauge the distance and wonder if you can dash all the way to the store without breathing, knowing that the

The Noisiest Birdbrains

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

In the annals of the great romantics, you won’t find the name of Herb Crump listed anywhere, and when it comes to sentimentality he doesn’t even rate a footnote. We always try to buy each other a little something for Valentine’s Day  and as we’ve aged our gift exchange has turned from roses and chocolates to support hose and thermal socks. But this

Handheld Doesn’t Automatically Connect

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

If you’ve spent any time around little girls you’ve seen it happen. Four little sweethearts and three of them own the same sort of doll. They bring them to school or church or the playground on the same day and although they don’t mean to leave out little Suzie who doesn’t own such a doll, she’s excluded. No one’s being mean, not a

Alternative Means of Heat

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I thought I had reached the age when nothing could really shock me. Earthquakes, terrorist attacks, reality TV …nothing short of the Second Coming could raise an eyebrow. Then I opened our lastest power bill. Holy kilowatt.

Herb’s mouth was equally agape. He said, “Freida, that’s more than we paid for our first car.”

“Herb, that’s more than we paid for our first

Sittin’ in Silence

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I was reading a brochure on our church’s upcoming couples’ retreat when the lights went out. We all have our stories of the Deep Freeze of 2014, and the fact that I’m alive puts me ahead of most folks, I suppose. But in spite of living in the 21st century with the advantages of cordless vacuum cleaners and four-ply bathroom tissue, Mother Nature

In a Mind’s Eye

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I knew someone would prove this since I’ve suspicioned it for years. Farfield University sent students to a museum to spend a half-day perusing the artwork. Half the group was allowed to take their smartphones to record whatever they liked, and the other half was asked to leave all cameras at home. The next day they got a test that confirmed what I’d

What Did You Miss for Christmas?

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Maybe the only thing sweeter than Christmas is listening to your friends’ tales of the holiday season. Our Ladies of the Afternoon group meets around three o’clock every day to rehash the past 24 hours, catch up on gossip, and solve every problem in the civilized world. Unlike the United Nations, we have the world straightened out by suppertime.

This week’s discussion revolved

There’s Plenty of Hope

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Compiling “best of” lists is usually the bailiwick of the urbane and well read among us. In my household we have neither, so I’ll sum up the past year from my aging armchair and let the stuffing fall where it may. Freida’s Best of 2013:

The celebration of the life of Nelson Mandela. Not that the death of this great man is a
