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

A Remarkable Woman

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Let me tell you about a remarkable woman. Her name is Stephanie and her age hovers between 50 and 70, depending upon the time of the day, the weather, and her mood. She married young, had a couple of kids, then divorced her husband. In her words, “He was okay …for awhile. But then all he wanted to do was sit around, said

There’s Something About a Dreamer

by Freida Marie Crump

Let’s hear it for the boy who’s so busy looking for four-leaf clovers that he misses the ball that’s hit to him in right field. Let’s hear it for the girl who completely misses what her math teacher was saying about Euclidean geometry because she was too fascinated with the patterns her teacher’s prism earrings were making on the far wall. Three cheers

Parade to Independence

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

There’s nothing that shouts the Fourth of July like a parade, so Herb and I plan to plant our lawn chairs on the nearest shady curb this week to take in the great American spectacle.

I’m one of the surviving veterans of high school marching bands and can well remember the days of polishing my trumpet on the night before the big parade,

Think Twice Before You Slap

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

My knowledge of entomology is right up there with my grasp of brain surgery and ballet but I recently found myself in a conference at which our featured speaker was a well-known bug expert. Okay, I take that back. There are no well-known bug experts, but if the occupation ever gets scandalous or sexy then this guy will be featured on the front

Keep an Eye on the Temperature

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I knew we were in trouble when the altar candles started to sag. Our little church can tolerate almost anything temporal or spiritual but the atmospheric conditions last week truly tested our patience. Our church’s air conditioning system had served us well for 20 years then on the first hot Sunday of the summer it had the audacity to die right before the

Footprints of Kindness

by Freida Marie Crump

Wanda McBride is somewhat of a nut. No, she’s delightfully loony. While other extroverts march to a different drummer, Wanda’s spent her life listening to an entirely different band. In short, she’s a bodacious delight, always doing the unexpected, bringing joy into the room each time she enters.

That’s why her vacation plans are never a surprise. Last summer she packed up her
