Photo finish Friday: “Jim’s where?”

"He went where?"

“He went where?”

Huck and Tom sat on a bridge fence overlooking a river. They were older now, and somewhat wiser, but still sometimes lost in the details of life.

“You think Jim would like to see this river?” Tom asked.

“I think he was a-sick of rivers after that adventure a few years back. I heard that when the raftin’ was all over, and the adventurin’ out in the Territories was done, ol’ Jim hitched himself up to politics and did right well up there in Washington.”

Tom thought about it for a moment. “How look he been there?”

“I hear it’s been about eight years.”

“Eight? Well, that might just be enough to make him mean.”

Photo finish Friday: “Heat wave”

Some things you shouldn't let slide.

Some things you shouldn’t let slide.

Oh, poor mannequin
let things slip again.
You say because you’re thin
that they just slide.

You stand there headless
and couldn’t regret less
if you create a mess
because of your body pride.

But dear mannequin
though the times are thin
we can’t let you begin
to leave nothing to hide.

So, pull up your bottoms
or starting this autumn
you’ll only flaunt them
in the dumpster outside.

Photo finish Friday: “Handle it”

So much arrogance. So little time.

So much arrogance. So little time.

Yell me your truth words. /

My ears already bloody /

from revelation.

Photo finish Friday: “Pink Elephant Highball”

If you wake up on New Year's Day and see this in your yard, you may have had one too many.

If you wake up on New Year’s Day and see this in your yard, you may have had one too many.


Or maybe the GOP is trying out what they hope will be a more user-friendly mascot: a pink elephant that would like to have a highball with you. If so, maybe that’s only meant for the high-dollar donors who have given them most of their campaign war chest.

Either way, be wary, very wary if you wake up and see a pink elephant with a highball in front of your home.

Happy New Year.

Photo finish Friday: “Crumb bummed”

Nothing quite says Happy Holidays quite like crust crumbs from your favorite left on a plate. Wonder which kind of pie Santa likes.
