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:

PooseyDigest_WPHer name was Emily, a cute little rascal with a bright smile that even in

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

Let’s Pretend

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPLet’s just pretend…just for a minute, okay? Let’s pretend that I’ve just spent $10 or $15 or $50 for my seat tonight. Let’s pretend that I’m sitting in the row behind you, then you decide to hold your phone camera up in front of my face to make a movie of what’s happening onstage. I lean right, you lean right, I go left

Just Tryin’ to Get Back Home

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPCertain occupations fascinate me… the guy who rakes the pitcher’s mound between innings at Kauffman Stadium, coffee testers for Starbucks, window washers on cruise ships, the lady who calls you to ask why you missed your physical therapy appointment. These jobs may not be all that exciting to those who hold them, but they each hold a certain curious element, something out of

Hard to Fight When You Hug

Greetings from Poosey.

Chicken in the breadpan pickin’ out dough

One more girl and on you go.

Don’t be fast and don’t be slow,

Chicken in the breadpan pickin’ out dough.

And so went the old square dance as I’d watch my folks parade around the old Legion Hall on Saturday nights, petticoats flying and laughter fending off the chill of a Midwest winter. There was

Education: Then and Now

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPMy high school band teacher was a madman. I mean that in the kindest possible way, but he was the terror of our little high school. I doubt we had much over a hundred kids in the school but around forty of them were in the music program. It was just the thing to do. Math, civics, and English were all necessary, but

The Sky is Falling (and Soon!)

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPGet ready to have a book dropped on your head. The FAA has finally given Amazon permission to test its drone delivery in the United States. Under the Amazonian plan, a human loads the package onto a conveyor belt, which takes it to any awaiting drone, then the device takes off and plops your book, denture powder or antifreeze on your doorstep. We’ve
