Poosey Digest: The rabbits will always nibble

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Margaret was a reasonable woman. Everybody knew that. She was polite, conservative and pious with a capital P. The whole world could be losing its collective head, but Margaret would remain rock solid in her ability to reason through things. Fact is she was probably the most reasonable woman I ever knew except for one thing… her garden. You mess with Margaret’s garden

Poosey Digest: The Lookalike Contest

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.
It’s an annual event in our little “village” when our church, the Semi-United Amalgamated Evangelical Brethren and Sistren holds it Fall Bazaar. If you ever wondered why these things are called bazaars I’d simply invite you to attend ours. Aside from the usual collection of soups, salads, pies and potholders, the church prides itself on our annual Produce Lookalike Contest. The rules are

Poosey Digest: Getting noticed

PooseyDigest_WPby Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I’d gathered a few friends for lunch at a nearby downtown square recently when suddenly the ice in our glasses began to rattle. Then the floor began vibrating and within seconds the plate glass in the café window shook with a violence that I thought was only confined to the West Coast earthquake zone, and before long we could no longer hear ourselves

His Infatuation with Sterility

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

My list of places that I can’t take husband Herb grows longer by the day. Today I added hospitals to my catalogue of banned spots.

PooseyDigest_WPWe were visiting a good friend who was mending her way out of some sort of surgery and for once Herbie thought he’d ride along. Normally the man avoids anything even vaguely medical, fearing that if he’s around

Out of Touch

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

The woman was incensed …out of her mind angry.

“Freida, I tried to call you twice this morning!”

PooseyDigest_WP“Happens a lot, Mildred.”

“Twice! Why didn’t you answer?”

“I wasn’t near a phone.”

“You don’t have a cell phone?”

“Sure I do. I just didn’t have it with me. Like I said, happens a lot.”

“What’s the use of having a cell phone if

The Blessings of a Traveling BBM

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

A couple of disturbing surveys were released this week. I read that two vital pillars of our society take a drastic slam in the summertime. Once the hot weather hits, both church attendance and blood donations take a severe dip. Some studies show that the number of butts in pews decrease by as much as 30% as the dual sirens of golf and

Hotel Breakfasts

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPThey call them First World Problems, those gripes that would make Third World citizens roll their eyes in disgust at our affluent lifestyles. “My $6 Starbucks latte came with one espresso instead of two,” “My dad bought me my first car today and it’s a used BMW instead of a new one,” or maybe, “My iPhone broke! My world is over!” …as all

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
