Best By, Sell By, Use By

Best By, Sell By, Use By

Stars turn to ash, that's the way
it goes. Marilyn Monroe once said,
All we demand is our right to twinkle,
but that gets old too, all that effort
in the night sky. Sometimes the night
overwhelms us, the sheaves have been
brought, our gifts received. We have
said the word, we are healed. Darkness
surrounds us as only it can.

Benedictions and Maledictions
Happy Friday!

We plod forth with faith, hope and audacity as we age and edge towards that darkness, or perhaps that light.

...we plod, but in our dreams, we fly. And the sky embraces another child, returning to the folds of the night.

Plod my ass...I wasn't paralyzed in either accident, I have enough drugs to keep me going horses plod when not getting the whip men walk and I'll be damned before I and I alone decide when the twinkle goes out of my hearts star.

Cheetos are delicious and they're a great comfort food! But they may cause weight gain! So be careful!!!--Mr. Whipple
