On the High End

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

Herb and I seldom do much fancy dining, but every so often we’ll take in a high-end restaurant just to be reminded of what our high ends taste like. There’s nothing like a good meal in a classy place to sort of reward yourself of something you can make up later when you get home.

Remember When People Talked?

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPAll I wanted to do was visit. Two old classmates were back in town for a wedding and we’d not seen each other in years. Since I was the local gal they asked me to pick out a restaurant and a time, then we’d meet for a long-awaited catch-up session. Things like this are always a bit scary as you wonder which of

Just Tryin’ to Stay Healthy

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPNo one in our fourth-grade class wanted to sit by Willa Reeder. Her mama came directly from Kentucky and hardly a week passed without us hearing some strange tales of Mrs. Reeder’s strange habits and incantations. But the worst of the lady’s ministrations was when she’d send her children to school in the winter with garlic tied around their necks. Mrs. Reeder claimed

Hey, Let’s Party!

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt happens every winter. You stare out the window at the endless parade of snow and cold and ice and wind and you purposely turn off the weather channel when they talk about the forecast for Los Angeles and Miami. That person you married starts looking way too familiar and even your rugs start staring back at you with a dreariness that could

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
