A Play of Thanksgiving

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Some folks think it’s only an iconic make-believe scene from the Peanuts comic strip, but we really did once dress up in pilgrim costumes in our school pageants and sit down to a meal of cardboard turkey and paper-mache mashed potatoes. I was an Indian, complete with Five and Dime store feathers and war paint. Why my indian wore war paint to a

Mincemeat Pie

Sometimes my timing is impeccable and amazes even me. I was sitting with my doctor in his industrially furnished examination room when he began writing me a prescription. I noticed the pen he was using and complimented him on the instrument. This was back in the heyday of medical payola when drug representatives could give gifts to doctors and take them for a

Do Some Rowing

It was a good boat. In fact he’d sailed it his entire life and until today it had never caused him a minute’s problem. Every morning he’d catch the outgoing tide, spend his day doing his sailor-ly duty, then in the evening the tides would again come in, bringing him safely home. Until today.

He couldn’t remember what he’d done differently or perhaps

What You Say Belongs to the World

Angela Merkel’s nose is out of joint and I can’t say as how I blame her. Her German sources tell her the U.S. has been snooping into the Chancellor’s phone calls. Several other world leaders have been loudly protesting that our government might be eavesdropping on the official phone lines over the past few years. Of course, much of this is bluster since

Join the Parade

They may be the most telling sign of the times: Halloween costumes. According to the sources who track this sort of thing, this year’s top outfits are a zipped-open hazmat suit a la “Breaking Bad,” the “Uncle Si” costume from “Duck Dynasty,” followed by the old kiddie favorites of The Pink Power Ranger, Ariel Sparkle, Superman Man of Steel, the Wolverine, plus a

Herb for President

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I suppose that this is as good a place as any to make the announcement: I am running Herb Crump for Congress.

Any candidate is allowed one free ad when he or she announces a candidacy and since we don’t have a campaign war chest built up yet, this serves as your official notice. I’m his campaign manager and so far his only

Who’s Speakin’ for Whom?

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

One of the remaining joys of small town living is the fact that nearly everybody in town will pass through the same door during the course of the day. We may not all get our mail at the same time, but if you hang around the local post office long enough you’ll likely encounter most of our little burg’s residents.

Sure, there are

Barging into Their Party

It was right out of Mayberry RFD. Herb and I were sitting in the living room just as the  sun set on a glorious autumn Sunday when we heard the noises on the porch. ‘Round Poosey your yard and porch belong to everyone, including the neighbor children. We know that as long as you’re in town you’re safe so fences are reserved only

Long Live the Nap!

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
