Brains – Yosemite – GAS
Welcome my sweets to another TMI Tuesday

I’ve had a number of “best friends,” over the years – but overall, it is a person who is upbeat and positive, knowledgeable about literature and fine art, and loves to learn new things.
I avoid “GASSERS.” They are needy people who rob you of time and energy and talk constantly about things you don’t “GIVE A S___ (fill in the blank) ” about (aka G.A.S.). I can spot a GASSER real QUICK – and I run the other way. Be on the lookout for people who want to do nothing but waste other people’s time and energy. You don’t need them in your life.
Long enough for one man to open his mouth to speak – about a second. Repeat: You don’t need this person in your life! This is a question you done GAS about. See my response to Question 4.
Definitely not itchy – I usually get poison ivy all over me every summer because I pull it out of my gardens – so I know what itchy all over is like. But, sticky might be OK, b ecasue usually if I am sticky, all I have to do is wash the sticky substance off. It is not painful but just annoying. Itchy is on the pain scale and who wants to be in pain from itching?
For your pleasure today, here is a poem I wrote:
“Along the Road”
Not all days in August
are sunny and warm.
There are those days
that are too dismal
even for photos.
that come with old age,
when old memories
the Queen Ann’s Lace
blooming along the road.
