CELEBRATING THE FOURTH

Celebrating the Fourth,

What can we do…

A picnic out on the grounds

Watching fireworks, too?

Monday I’m working of course,

My job in security…

Our great tour de force

May be on TV.

The cookout in Westboro

We’re likely not going to…

The effort’s a little too far,

We’ll stick with our own little crew.

Well now my fingers are tired,

The brain is less inspired…

So my friends

Have happy weekends,

And your suppers be charcoal-fired!

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!

INDEPENDENCE EVE

INDEPENDENCE EVE

Darkness over in the Valley,

Private fireworks  start a tally…

Explosions o’er there,

Few in the air,

None  seen from the sally.

Some years folks put on a show,

This year economy’s been slow…

Still hear a lot

Of cherry bomb shot,

Tomorrow night might not be as slow!

–Jonathan Caswell

JULY 4TH FORECAST

JULY 4TH FORECAST

Eveloping in thick haze

After the firework displays…

Will any be harmed

By terrorist alarm,

For safety everyone prays.

–Jonathan Caswell

NO FIREWORKS!

NO FIREWORKS!

No fireworks–what can I say–

My window faces the other way…

Frequent chatter of

Firecrackers

Go off at that time of the day.

The neighborhood folks may land

Themselves some contraband…

Not as numerous,

Almost humorous

But, in the short-term, grand.

–Jonathan Caswell

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 20,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
