Why do you live this way?

Must be the money?


I love poetry.

All kinds of poetry.

From the short haiku to the long epic stuff.

I just love it.

I love to read it.

I love to write it.

I just think it's the best.


For the rest of the month, here at 12dots, it's going to be poetry.

Lots and lots of poetry.

Good poetry.

Bad poetry.

Silly and profane..

Happy Poetry Month!

(LOL TS Elliot, April is the cruelest month? Nah, not with poetry in it.)


A poetry about nature set to music....



Oh no.
Oh hell no.
I will not be spending my 4 day doing this.

Guess what?

It's a (kind of) 4 day weekend.

How will I be spending this lovely weekend?

Well, from the looks of it?

Will either be:

laying wood floor

looking at trucks,

working on the chicken palace,

working on fences,

going to see my dad,

building grow boxes,

sanding and re painting the john boat,

cleaning dog kennels,

clean the house,

wash clothes,


hop in the car and go see  if anyone is racing sailboats on the river

I'll give you one guess what I'm gonna do....

LOL it's either that or this

No worries. WB and Pup are here looking after me....


LOLOOLOLOLO Joy to the world All the boys and girls....

(read the comments if you get a chance)

Cya on Tuesday. I'll tell you what happened.

Love and hugs,

Author Ann

Hello Gentle Reader!

Today will be busy here. I'd type the "to do" list but think that posting the "done done" list is a better idea.

Back later tonight.


Oh yeah, almost forgot. Watched LLS last night and ya know? It was pretty good in a slightly off center way.

And look!! A LLS Tweety contest!

Why if I didn't have this looooonnnngggg "to do" list, I'd be in a creative feeeevor...

Happy 4-21-11. We're still here.

I hear thunder in the distance...


What good thing happened to you today?



LOl I love this song...


Weather forecast?  

Ah huricane season.

Since I have relatives in  the Deep South, it's good to have an online radio station to keep up with what's happening.

This one is pretty good with weather coverage

AND it plays top 40/oldies country music.

WBAM 98.9  out of Montgomery Alabama. 

They watch what's happening in Mississippi as well as most of Alabama. It's in the central part of the state.  Also good for huricane info as they're close enough to the Gulf to get the bad weather. They also are usually the first place people can stop when they're  looking for a place to stay while the storm blows over.

There are other stations online but this one has been around along time.

Got stuff to do.



I was looking for boat parts and came upon this video and the reminder that  one year ago today the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico happened.

This Spring there've been alot of nice people who've come to visit the beaches on the Gulf.


Then I got to thinking....

There used to be an Amtrak rail service along the Gulf of Mexico (from Gulfport MS to New Orleans for sure). 

There used to be an Amtrak rail service from the Gulf of Mexico up through the central part of the US.

Couldn't we have that service back?

With gas at almost 4 and 5 dollars a gallon?


I'm delighted to see folks come to the Gulf of Mexico. It's helping people who really didn't have a great summer.

But I'm worriedd.

If the gas goes up this summer, will they stop coming to see us?

Maybe we need an alternate plan just in case.

They used to have rail service .

Can we get it back?

What good thing happened to you today?


Lordy, lordy, lordy.

I'm not going to complain about rain. Rain is a very good thing.

But tornados?

Dear World,

Thank you for taking the time to share you life with me. So who did I talk to? A future writer and political commentator? A philosopher? People who make the world work and those who use art to make a statement.

Momma told me there would be days like this.

I'm better for the experience.

Agree or disagree? Just tell me the truth as you know it.



Yep, "...I'm alive...." and you are correct that's a pretty good thing to have happen. LOL, I was really glad to talk to you. Put a smile on my face and optimism in my heart.

Thank you.
