Times (and Games) Have Changed

by Freida Marie Crump

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

The Conflab That Counts

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Our church’s longest-standing tradition has nothing to do with baptisms, communion or Christmas pageants, but the annual Fall Bazaar. Once a year we celebrate the gathering of the crops even though our congregation has only a handful of farmers. Every October we drag in armloads of dead cornstalks, fall foliage, and more cider than our digestive systems can safely tolerate, then hold a

Defining Obscenity

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Do Republicans eat more than Democrats or do they just order more expensive food? I have a feeling that the 8,500 children who are going to die today don’t care. They just want a meal. That comes out to one child every 10 seconds. Yes, you’ve heard it before.

Since January of 2011 the members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the

Poosey Digest: Edith’s Cornballs

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Pity our poor National Anthem. As it celebrates its 200th birthday this year the song has been much maligned as “unsingable,” “war like,” and simply old-fashioned. The fellow who penned it after watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812 meant it to be nothing more than a poem. He never intended for someone to set it to a piece

Rule #1: Just Have Fun!

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

We’ve missed something. My pillow still has a tag that reads, “Do not remove under penalty of law,” and even my ketchup bottle sports a label filled with information required by government regulation. So what happened to parades? Nearly every town of any size hosts an annual parade or two but I can’t find anything published by the federal government regulating the things.

Poosey Digest: Think PIG!

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It was some of the best advice I’d ever received. I was traveling into town with my friend Zelma and we were running late for a meeting. I’d just rounded a curve, and Boom!, a pickup truck pulled out right in front of me then proceeded to piddle down the highway at 40 mph with a stream of traffic backing up behind us.

Common (Rotten) Core

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Charlie Frankenhoff was a genius. No other word for it. And every year at the end of summer when I see the yellow school buses begin to roll past my house I think of Charlie.

Actually, his name was Mr. Frankenhoff to our freshman class of literature students, but outside the classroom we simply called him Chuckling Charlie. He taught English literature unless

Belly Up to the Bible Bar

by Freida Marie Trump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’ve come to the conclusion that to call yourself a true American there are certain things you really must do… vote, stay informed, read the Declaration of Independence, and visit Branson, Missouri. Last week I crossed this last item off my patriotic bucket list. I realize that I’m sadly late in accomplishing this since most of the adult population has already visited this

A Serious Condition

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Herb and I have a great doctor. The little rascal can out-diagnose the best and he keeps up-to-date on the latest tonics, pills, and potions. If the paperwork doesn’t kill him we plan to keep the guy forever.

But there’s one malady I’ve contracted that even the town’s finest physician can’t cure. After a long weary year of wars, epidemics, tyrants, and weather
