Try to Ruin Scrooge’s Day

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Christmas is probably not the most appropriate time of year to think of skinflints, but every time the yuletide seasons rolls around I think of the various Scrooges I’ve met in my life.

One of the weirdest ducks to ever waddle ‘round Poosey was a minister. I won’t mention the denomination lest the Methodists get angry. I’ll call him Pastor Bob since I

Losing Our Sense of Humor

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It was a tiny item on page three of the Chicago Tribune… one of those curiosity items to the fill space on an otherwise un-newsworthy Monday morning. Lt. Brian Keller used his unmarked Dodge Charger with emergency lights to pull over his son’s school bus. The boy had forgotten to take his lunch to school so, as a sort of a joke, Keller

The Season of Smorgasbord

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’ve always thought myself to be a peaceful person, then I’ll spend an hour with Herb in public and I tell myself that the man just needs a good slapping. Nothing can strain your pacifism like a lunk-headed husband.

We’re both fans of buffet-style eating, and we’re especially fond of oriental restaurants featuring this style of service. Of course, most oriental buffets in

Simplicity

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The Mathewsons were unique. One-of-a-kind. Some would say eccentric. Flo and Henry Mathewson were an elderly brother and sister who lived the first house west of town, neither married, still living on the home place where they were raised.

Every morning of their adult life Flo would fix one egg and toast for Henry, and the two of them would listen to the

The 9-Month Schedule

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Once upon a time in a faraway school system a wise old wizard dropped himself right in the middle of a faculty meeting. The school had often been visited by alien creatures …food inspectors, fire and safety folks, and an army of workshop leaders who’d teach the teachers how to teach the current governmental mandates, but they’d never been visited by a real

Poosey Digest: Look Death in the Eye

…and laugh

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

When someone mentions near-death experiences, my mind races back to a Halloween party years ago when we were instructed to dress up as the most horrifying creature we knew. Herb had been secretive all week as to what he’d be wearing and we arrived in separate cars. My jaw hit the floor when my husband walked into the church fellowship hall

‘Tis the Season

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It seems a shame. Right here in the most beautiful of seasons we’re annually slapped in the face with ugliness. There’s surely no season in the Midwest that rivals autumn for its cornucopia of colors, flavors, fun, and festivals. Springtime is often touted as the most glorious of seasons but when you live in Tornado Alley or your April ritual consists of sandbagging

Sports and Shorts

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I swore I’d never get this way, but I have finally achieved the status as an all-out prude. Chalk it up to my age, my disposition, my digestive tract…but something has come over me and I’ve become a genuine prig and a killjoy.

I can remember my own parents complaining about the way I dressed. I think it’s endemic in every generation to

Times (and Games) Have Changed

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I miss charades. No, the world will not come crashing to a halt at the loss of this age-old parlor game, and I will probably live happily ever after if I never play it again, but I fear that the loss signals something a bit deeper.

If you’ve spent the last hundred years in a cave and aren’t familiar with the pastime, charades
