    A wise man was once asked why he had changed his mind. He answered, “When the facts change, my opinion changes. What about you?”

    Great observations, Katrina! Thank you!

    This is a very personal poem, but one that I hope can be seen to fit many interpretations. I actually wrote this about my husband. He is a force of nature when he believes in something and will hold his position with stubborn tenacity.

    We had a serious issue arise with our daughter and he (for 10 years) stuck to his stubborn viewpoint. It actually almost ended our marriage, but I discovered that I am even more stubborn than he is, when I believe in something so important as my child. I can happily report that he has now changed his position.

    Kelvin sounds masculine, shiny and new. He seems to practice ‘positive thinking’ in an exclusive manner but his novelty is worn.

    I like the way you leave us on ‘the fall’, which could be moral, seasonal or temperature-related.

    You give each official unit a character and opportunity for relationship, vague and tentative though it is.

    As humans, we may expect a rise after the fall, though fever could be fatal, or Spring; morality is harder to measure.

    I've never had an experience with hound dogs, but the family 2 yr old beagle must. snuffle. everywhere. It doesn't help that he's a doorknob, as well.

    Good luck with the pooches.

    Thanks bob. Isn't he adorable? His name is Guinness and he's a hoot and all of those things in his poem. He is actually my son's dog. At the time of that picture my son had three hounds and I lived with them for a year and a half, in his home. Two Walker Hounds and one Blue Tick Hound. Let's just say that I came to be very familiar with the nature of Hounds.

    I'm so glad to know I'm not the only person who has experienced a... um... personal grooming incident. I admire both of you, so I consider myself in good company.

    Maggie, thanks for the sweet compliment. I used to be somewhat stunning, now I'm just a well preserved older lady.

    Good advice...I just moved the Icy Hot away from the toothpaste. Considering that I nearly coated my toothbrush with deodorant once while talking with my husband (he was watching, fascinated, to see if I would actually do it) I can certainly relate.

    Love the pic, Gumby.

    I've rubbed Preparation H on my face before. I found out years later some women actually do it on purpose to lessen their pores. lol

    Enjoyed reading this Darlin

    Oh and Btw ... Just looked at your pic, and you are absolutely stunning ! The outside you matches the inside you wonderfully
