HATEFUL TURKEYS!

HATEFUL  TURKEYS-!

Somebody cranked”911″s

From  one  of OUR buildings done…

 Quirky turkeys

With unthinking workings–

The Police thought those calls  no fun!

How in the world does one trace

These calls with egg on your face…?

“NOT one of ours…”

Would clown this  farce,

You say  it came from this place?

Not much the police could do,

Driving over with cruisers–two–

They asked and left,

No emergency  evident,

Shaking their heads in the squad room?

On the precipice of
New Year, 2016,
Entertainment
becomes
Possible
Evening
Activity
Event.

Will you see a new film?

Could you imagine going
to see a fantastic band?

Are you thinking about
theatre productions?

Multiple layers of sparks,
The fireworks flare up,
Colored and sizzling,
Crashing and fading,
It will be worth it.

However you choose
to celebrate,
Wherever you
travel,
party,

Let
it
in~
2016

This door is a beauty
on a building which
is Colonial Revival.
Completed on
September 21, 1896.

After a series of five
Downtown theatre fires,
Years from 1889 -1893,
Destroyed and replaced
finally so the builder
even chose specific
“fire-proof” materials:
Iron,
Tiles,
Steel,
Bricks,
Concrete.

Reminiscent of Chicago,
Schiller Theatre,
Built five years
Earlier in
1891.

Original name,
“The Great Southern
Fireproof
Hotel and
Opera House.”

The U.S. National Register
Of Historic Places, 1982.

Should You Tell People About Your Blog?

I TELL ANYINE WHO MAY LISTEN!!!!! 😀

thisizapen

Do you tell people you know in real life about the fact that you have a blog? And if so, do you you share your blog with them? Or do you make an effort to keep your blog hidden from people you know?

I ask because I am unsure of what to do. Up until this point, I have not worried too much about friends and acquaintances finding my blog; I haven’t written anything that could offend them, or that they could know is about them. I’ve even shown my blog to people.

Now I wonder whether that was the right thing to do.

You see, I’d like to have the freedom of being able to write about people I know without running the risk of them reading those posts. I acknowledge that there probably aren’t that many people who I’ve told about my blog that still read it. But…

FIRST NIGHT FESTIVITIES!

FIRST NIGHT FESTIVITIES!

Our City has First Night,

A way to celebrate right…

Cultural bands

Dessert  gourmands,

Till fireworks at midnight!

My wife’s attending a party,

“Bring  your  own food”, you smarty…!

Whilst I work

With little perk,

Perhaps fireworks on departing!

Tomorrow–New Years Day–

Eat dinner and watch Rose Parade…

Before four

I’m out the door,

Work for one more dayof pay!
