The Poosey Digest

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI’m not sure what to do with a 53-year-old can of green beans. There’s no expiration date since such labeling wasn’t required in 1962. In fact, I’d forgotten I had them until President Obama announced that we’d be ending our long-standing embargo with Cuba.

Once upon a scary time in our nation’s history, a round little Russian named Nikita sent a few shiploads

I’m Trying …Really Trying

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m trying. I swear I’m trying. I look at the birth date on my driver’s license and tell myself that I’m out of whack, I’ve got it all wrong, and must have a screw loose. When a person gets my age she’s supposed to turn conservative. That’s what all the statistics say, so I’m trying. I swear I’m trying.

I went into the

The Brains of This Outfit

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’ve always been fascinated by people who are fascinated, especially if they have a fascination for things that are old. Billions of bucks are spent on restoring old cars, putting old tractors on display, refinishing vintage furniture and homes. Lots of reasons for this I suppose.

There’s something to be said for the quality of a hand-hewn fireplace mantel or the way a

If Every Food Had a Label…

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I’m just taking a wild stab here, but I’m guessing that if you’re so dumb that you buy a huge bucket of buttered popcorn at the movie theatre, slathered with salt and fortified with every fat in the civilized world, and if you don’t realize this will hurt your diet, you’re also so dumb that you can’t read a label on the box

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
