Long Live the Nap!

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Google may be onto something. At their Googleplex headquarters in Mountain View, CA, they supply their employees with an Energypod, a device made by Metronaps, which allows you to stick your reclining upper torso into a sound-buffering cocoon and take a nap. The pods include a built-in Bose music system for those employees who drift off best with a few tunes, and the

Internet Addictions

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Back in the day when I had even less sense than I now possess, I used to volunteer as a chaperone for overnight youth trips. I’m not a camper so I confined myself to trips that involved motels and soft beds. Nothing lets you peek into the psyche of a teenager like chaperoning an overnight as they delight in stretching the limits of

Wanting Someone to Care

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I first thought I was hearing things as I walked along the streets of a neighboring town. I passed by one of that town’s ATM machines. A somewhat disheveled lady, wearing a jogging outfit, stood there talking to the machine. Mind you, many places in Northwest Missouri don’t have voice activated ATM machines. She was standing there talking to a hunk of metal

Mr. Whatever

Husband Herb has entered one of his cocoon stages. Whenever the events of the world become too overwhelming, he sticks his head firmly in the sand and refuses to come out until things settle down, and of course they never do. I tell him that there’s only one thing sticking up when your head is below ground and that’s the side you show

A Drink from the Cup

I was maybe 10 years old and a group of us had saddled up our horses for a pleasant ride one Sunday afternoon. The heat was as oppressive as what’s landed on top of the Midwest the last couple of weeks and none of us had thought to bring water. When we rounded a bend in the road and saw the old well

That Age Thing

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

At first I thought it was arthritis. Then I suspected it was my left hip wearing down or perhaps a dash of rheumatism creeping up my spine. Whatever the cause, after decades upon decades of being young, I woke up one day and found that I was old. I thought such things were supposed to creep up on you like old underwear, not

Rewarding Achievement

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Mindy will be entering her junior year in high school this week. She’s been our little neighbor girl since the day she was born and we’ve sort of considered her ours. Our sweetheart was raised by good parents and nurtured in a loving community. In fact, the only thing that completely let her down in her education was her education.

Travel as Easy as ‘A-B-C’

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

The more I travel the more I become convinced that traveling with the right folks is every bit as important as where you go and what you see. Your fellow adventurers can make or break your trip. Unfortunately, there is no website called nincompoop.com to get a rating on these people before your plane takes off.

I could write a book on how

Some Things About Alaska

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Herb always says, “Freida, nobody wants to hear about our vacations.”

“People always ask about the trip, Herb.”

“They’re just being polite. It’s like saying, ‘How’s your health?’ It’s polite to ask, but no one wants to know.”

As usual, I don’t agree with him. I may not want to listen to all the details of your last knee replacement, but if you’ve
