I met my cousin in Grapevine for lunch this week.

This suburb has been restored 
to the splendor
of my youth.

Including the movie theater
Exactly like one where I 
spent many a 
Saturday Afternoon
During those long ago
carefree days.

AND then there was the neighborhood email stream-

Concerning---this lost chicken
found wandering the alley.

"Has anyone lost a chicken?"

Many hours later-
another email in the stream-

That's my wife's chicken. 

With a contact number


This morning--the last email in the stream-

The chicken has been captured and secured.  I thank you all for your help.  

When I left East Texas over 20 years ago I swore I would never again live on a dirt road chasing farm animals too stupid to live.  

I will spend the day in self-reflection and try to formulate a better strategy for the next 20 years.

Here in the Hood!


  1. Meanwhile in our hood ... a man went to the doctor and said, "Help us out doctor. My wife thinks she's a chicken!"

    The doctor asked him, "How long has she had this condition?"

    He replied, "About twenty years!"

    The doctor asked again, "Why did it take you so long to seek help?"

    "We needed the eggs!"

    Keep smiling Lulu. God bless.

  2. {{{{giggling}}} you def. live in a very interesting neighborhood, smiles.


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
