With all that is happening on our national scene and our global scenes, we all need something that will settle the dyspepsia. It seems I have run out of tonic water and cola so a good stiff drink of something we should find, with hot tea, of course.

I was told you have stretched
your boundaries as far as you can and the rest

someone to pull me up. . .
around the bend will be a someone
to pull me up. . . . .I know.
