In a Mind’s Eye

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

I knew someone would prove this since I’ve suspicioned it for years. Farfield University sent students to a museum to spend a half-day perusing the artwork. Half the group was allowed to take their smartphones to record whatever they liked, and the other half was asked to leave all cameras at home. The next day they got a test that confirmed what I’d

What Did You Miss for Christmas?

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Maybe the only thing sweeter than Christmas is listening to your friends’ tales of the holiday season. Our Ladies of the Afternoon group meets around three o’clock every day to rehash the past 24 hours, catch up on gossip, and solve every problem in the civilized world. Unlike the United Nations, we have the world straightened out by suppertime.

This week’s discussion revolved

There’s Plenty of Hope

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Compiling “best of” lists is usually the bailiwick of the urbane and well read among us. In my household we have neither, so I’ll sum up the past year from my aging armchair and let the stuffing fall where it may. Freida’s Best of 2013:

The celebration of the life of Nelson Mandela. Not that the death of this great man is a

Falling with Style

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

A friend called this week asking about a column I once penned on how to fall on the ice. I told her that I had no knowledge of writing such a thing, but she swore that I had, so I assumed I’d lost my memory due to a fall on the ice. The lady wanted to reprint it in her church bulletin, and

You Just Gotta Know Where to Look

“It’s gotta be out there somewhere,” said Herb. “You just gotta know where to look.”

Herb has heard me grouse about the difficulty in finding suitable Christmas presents for various people over the years so he said he’d go shopping with me this season and, in his words, put his “expert eye to the situation.”

My husband is hardly Mr. Shopper. The man

That’s Christmas

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

It seems we are a nation divided. A goodly number of us jump headlong into the Christmas frenzy, stoked on the sound of carols interrupted with “Associate needed in electronics!” and the other contingent of our nation sighs with disgust as we bemoan the holiday holocost that the birth of the Savior has become. Of course this latter group often does its complaining

Pray for Your Enemies

Luis was the worst bus driver we’d ever hired. I don’t know where the guy got his qualifications, but when our tour group landed in Rome and we met the driver who’d been assigned to us for the next two weeks, we all knew it might be a rugged trip. Perhaps it wasn’t completely his fault. To begin with, he didn’t speak English.

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

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

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
