Some Things About Alaska

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Herb always says, “Freida, nobody wants to hear about our vacations.”

“People always ask about the trip, Herb.”

“They’re just being polite. It’s like saying, ‘How’s your health?’ It’s polite to ask, but no one wants to know.”

As usual, I don’t agree with him. I may not want to listen to all the details of your last knee replacement, but if you’ve

The Life of a Giver

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

You didn’t mess with Mabel Cunningham. She was the queen of the potluck, and every time the hot summer months roll around I think back to the days when Mabel ruled our church’s kitchen. When Mabel died there was some talk about erecting a shrine to her tuna casserole. Other churches dedicate choir lofts and pianos to various departed congregational saints, but the

Ghost Hunting

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The ghost hunters came to town last week. It was a big deal to the locals, but of course ’round Poosey the appearance of more than three pickup trucks on the road at one time is an occasion. We’ve always considered ourselves to be a stable, conservative community so anything out of the normal seems, well, paranormal.

A Man of the World

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The old adage in packing for a trip is to load up your suitcase with everything you hope you’ll need, carry it around your house three times, then come in and start tossing things out. I’ll admit it: I pack for every eventuality while my husband Herb thinks he’s going on an overnight camping trip with a group of well-stocked Boy Scouts.

Not on Any Test Score

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It’s easy to become discouraged. Listening to the nightly news before bedtime is enough to disturb anyone’s sleep as the state of the nation and the world seems to be spiraling into one abyss after another. I can remember Henry Kissinger once saying that, “You can’t really achieve total world peace. You can only run around the world trying to keep all the

The Price of Freedom

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I love the story about the Florida man who was arrested for mowing his yard in the nude. His neighbors said they didn’t mean to be prudish, but there was something profoundly disconcerting about taking a gulp of their morning coffee while looking out the window and seeing a naked man pushing a Sears E-Z Trim back and forth in front of their

The Poosey Digest: Firecrackers

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I mean to take nothing away from our country’s benchmark event back in 1776 when the brave fellows signed their names to the Declaration of Independence, but Poosey once had a July 4th celebration that would have scared off the Redcoats just as effectively.

For years Ricky Cernage was our Mr. Fireworks. Shooting off explosives is a seasonal job at best and it’s

About Immigration

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Like it or not, I’m German to the core. Both husband Herb’s relatives and mine landed on the East Coast and headed toward the Promised Land that was then the American frontier. I guess I’d devised my own fictional account of my brave forefathers and mothers making their way through herds of friendly buffalo, fording gently flowing streams and being helped along the

The Poosey Digest: Zap Apps

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Anyone with a portable phone is familiar with the phrase, “There’s an app for that!” It’s become the cure-all for each of mankind’s ills. There’s an app for comparing the price of lettuce before you go shopping, one for turning all the lights in your house on at the same time (with no reason why), and for getting reviews on the baked Italian
