A Man with Passion

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can’t think of the Fourth of July without remembering him. Hoolie McBride was the town carpenter, mechanic, roof fixer, dog tamer, and sometimes Bingo caller at our annual Burgoo. He was a scruffy little fellow who managed to always sport about six days of beard, and some said that he wore his oil-stained pants for so many days that he had no

Let’s Go Postal

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

I can remember as a youngster running in to get the mail and hearing the peep-peep of baby chickens in the back room. An indulgent postmaster would let me go back to look at the chicks peeking their little beaks out of the round holes in the shipment box. I recently read where it was only last year when some legislative body made

The Need for Character

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Now and again I’ll read something that just jumps off the page and smacks me in the heart. Such was the case as I was digesting a new book by New York Times writer David Brooks. He titled the work “The Road to Character,” it’s a study of what’s happened inside our hearts and minds in America during the past decades.

Put Fun Back in Flying

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

As summer creeps up on us, we find more and more harried travelers edging their way toward the airports of our nation. In case you’ve not flown lately, things have not gotten a bit more pleasant. It astounds me that a technological establishment that comes up with quality of life inventions literally by the day, has yet to develop a few simple doo-dads

The Poosey Digest: Questions Abroad

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

“So. . .George Bush. Is he an evil man?”

PooseyDigest_WPThat’s the first question the young Russian student asked me when we sat down for coffee one night in a Moscow coffee house. He was referring to George the First and the poor kid had been fed such a line of propaganda that he was truly afraid that the elder Bush was going to

Little Girl Learning

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

It was one of the freakiest things that ever happened in our neck of the woods and only many years later were we able to piece the catastrophe together. I’m still not sure I have the whole story, but here it is as best I can relate it:

Greetings to the Graduates

by Freida Marie Crump

Dear Graduate,

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPAs you sit in your gown anxiously waiting for the graduation ceremony to creep to its long, hot conclusion, you might be puzzled by some of the phrases that’ll no doubt hear spouted on the last evening of your high school or college career. Maybe I can help translate a few of these clichés for you. Just hide a copy of

Fun in the Dark

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPPoosey is the electrical version of the canary in the mineshaft. If there’s a lightning storm within a hundred miles we’ll be the place that loses its electricity. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky last week when about 8 o’clock at night the area was flung into darkness. Nothing was running but Herb’s sinuses, so we went out onto the front stoop

We Get What We Deserve

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPNo one could ever quite figure out the Skinner sisters. Both in their 90s, they’d been raised in the same house, both married, then after 50-plus years both were widowed within months of each other so they moved into a big old two-story house on the east edge of town. But that’s where the similarities came to a crashing halt. Maude, the older
