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

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

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

Alfie’s Still Up There

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Alfie Rodhaver climbed up into a tree yesterday and he says he has no intention of coming down. I looked out my window this morning and he’s still there. Alfie’s wife Lora said that yesterday morning he filled a thermos with coffee, put the newspaper under his arm and climbed up into the soft maple in front of their house. His last words,

To the Graduates

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Dear Graduate,

You may be short of time, short of cash, and running out of sanity this week, but I would wager that you don’t lack for advice. Your parents, teachers, and anyone else over 21 has no doubt given you a congratulatory pat on the back then slipped in their two cents on how to be happy, successful, and how to avoid

Who’s Driving This Thing?

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Sometimes the right amount of badgering pays off because last week I pestered and harassed my way into the trip of my dreams. While most folks fantasize about Paris and Rome, I was raised on a farm and as I zipped up and down the country roads in our neighborhood there’s nothing I wanted more than to spend an hour on a tractor.

A Dose of Miss Finley

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

There’s not a living high school graduate of Poosey who can forget Miss Finley. Lola Albright Finley was the school’s entire high school math department for 47 years. She taught all four years of high school math, coached whatever sport was needing a mentor, sponsored the cheerleaders, headed the Jr-Sr prom, and taught music whenever the school was without a song leader. There

To Plant or Not to Plant…

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from the Ridge.

“Herb, we’re too old. We just can’t do it anymore.”

“Speak for yourself, Freida. I’ve still got it in me.”

“Whatever was in you has long since left, Herbie. It’s time to hang it up.”

And so began our annual battle on whether or not to plant a garden. I’m not entirely unsympathetic. I know that there’s something in the DNA of
