In my searching the inteet I discovered a poem section on scrapbook.com. Laughed at this poem and remembered when we marched in Berkeley for People's Park and to end the Vietname War. That was the scariest thing I have ever seen in America before 9/11. American youth walking down the Berkeley streets lines in Alameda Polize Officers and National Guard. I am glad I bo in America and am an old flower child.

A long time ago in the hippie days
When flowers were all the craze
I was a real wild child
But today I think I was rather mild.
Our dreams of peace and love
Were inspired by the one above.
Today we are not supposed to pray
To do so we might offend with what we say
Well even after all these years
Though a lot of heart aches and tears
This wild child is proud to say
She still talks to God each and every day.

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."September 9, 2011 at 4:13 pm #135219
My dad surprised me with a little poem yesterday when we were taking mom to the Dr. As we were driving along, we saw a little Smart car. You know, the little bitty teeny tiny stupid looking things?? Anyway, my dad started telling us about a car in the 20's and 30's made by Austin Healy in England. A teeny little car they called the Baby Austin. He said they had a few in the small town he lived in, in Texas.
Then out of nowhere he chimed:
A man from Boston
Had a Baby Austin,
Room for his ass
And a gallon of gas.
But his balls hung out
And he lost em!
We just about died!!! I looked at him and he had this stupid look on his face and said Where did that come from?? I haven't thought about that in 65 years!!!!!!!!
I cried I laughed so hard!!!September 9, 2011 at 4:30 pm #135220September 9, 2011 at 4:39 pm #135221September 9, 2011 at 5:23 pm #135222

she is doing ok now. She had kidney failure and had to spend a couple days in the hospital. Evidently when you get 80 years old, it's not a good idea to let yourself get dehydrated!! That on top of a UT infection, her kidneys quit working!! Infection is gone now, So as long as she keeps her self hydrated, she should be fine.
Quite a scare, tho!!! Especially when she lost her mind and woke up at 3 am and woke my dad up and told him the house was flooded!!! It was not flooded at all, only in her mind!! I guess when you kidneys fail, you get delusional, too!!!September 11, 2011 at 7:06 am #135227
