snow has been nearly waist high and is still falling.

Mother's letter to a son
My dear John, I am in a well here and hoping you are also in a well there. I'm writing this letter slowly, because I know you cannot read fast. We don't live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen 20 miles from home, so we moved 20 miles. I won't be able to send the address as the last people who stayed here took the house numbers with them for their new house so they would not have to change their address. Hopefully by next week we will be able to take our earlier address plate here, and that our address will remain same too. This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine, situated right above the toilet but I'm not sure it works too well. Last week I put in 3 shirts, pulled the chain and haven't seen them since. The weather here isn't too bad. It rained only twice last week. The first time it rained for 3 days and second time for 4 days. The coat you wanted me to send you, your Aunt said it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with all the metal buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pocket. Your father has another job. He has 500 men under him. He is cutting the grass at the cemetery. Your sister had a baby this morning. I haven't found out whether it is a girl or a boy, so I don't know whether you are an Aunt or Uncle. Your uncle fell in the vat at the distillery. Some men tried to pull him out, but he fought them off bravely and drowned. When he was cremated he burned for three days. There isn't much more news this time. Nothing much has happened. Love - Mom. P.S. I was going to send you some money but by the time I realized, I had already sealed this letter.
I had amnesia once — or was it twice.
I went to San Francisco. I found someone’s heart. Now what?
Protons have mass? I didn’t even know they were Catholic.
All I ask is a chance to prove that money can’t make me happy.
If the world were a logical place, men would ride horses side-saddle.
What is a “free” gift? Aren’t all gifts free?
They told me I was gullible … and I believed them.
Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he’ll never be able to merge his car onto a M25.
Two can live as cheaply as one, for half as long.

GOLDY LOGS AND THE THREE PEARS.
Once upon a time, there was a little curl his name was goldy logs.
One day she went for a wart in the woods and this covered a little house.
As she was tied she not on the door and weighted.
Nobody asked her, associated a whale longer and then not the game.
Still nobody asked her, so she opened a door and wedding.
In the livid room there was a cable and three shares, - a little share and to pictures.
On the cable there were three blades of polish, two pig blades and once more played.
As she was angry, she sat down on the small share and tasted one of the pig blades.
It wasn’t swede enough, so she tried the other pig blade.
That was too swede, so she tried the small blade.
That was just right, associated all up.
Then she felt tied, so she went up stares to have a looker33 round.
There was a bird room with two big birds and one small bird.
She lay down on the big bird but that was too hard.
Then she laid down on the other big bird, but that was all so hard.
So she laid down on the small bird and that was just right, and she fell past a sleep.
While she was a sleep, in two the house came three pears –
A dandy pear a money pear and baby pear.
They sat down at the table to eat their polish.
The dandy pear said, hose bean eating my polish?
The money pear said, hose the meeting might orange?
The baby their said hose bin eating might orange, it saw gone!
Then they all went up to bet.
Dandy pear said sun bodies bean slipping in my bet.
Money pear said sun bodies bean slipping in my bet.
Baby pear dried out, look, a little curls father sleep in my bet.
Southerly, Goldy logs woke up, saw the three pears, and screened!
Then she jumped out of the bet, random the stairs and utter the house.
And she never wet in the woods again!

I wrote a poem dedicated to all shopping addicts everywhere
I Must Go Down to the Shops Again
I must go down to the shops again, to the lovely shops in the mall,
And all I ask is a Visa card so I can spend my all.
At the fashion shops and the jewelery store you'll find me if you try,
With a grey mist across my face as I see the latest buy.
I must go down to the shops again; for the call of the closing SALE
Is a wild call and a clear call that makes me go all pale;
I don't care if it's a windy day with the white clouds a-flying,
And I don't care if I'm soaked to the skin as long as I don't end up crying.
I must go down to the shops again, though my overdraft is mounting,
It's a girl's way and a woman's way, after all "Who's counting?"
And all I ask is I get there before the sale is done,
And I get that dress that I'm dreaming of, Oh! great! Isn't this fun!
