Photo finish Friday: “Checkin’ in Once Again”

“One for the money. Two for the show….”

From blue suede to persuade, Elvis is still singing to Marilyn down at the local pizza and sandwich shop. Four years

Elvis and Marilyn hanging out at the local pizzeria from May 25, 2013.

ago, almost to the day, Photo finish Friday featured these two. Not much has changed. Marilyn has gained a cap — which may or may not go with her dress — and she’s clutching her clutch in both hands now. You can never be too careful these days. But they are both still hanging around Harby’s.

Who do you know now that you knew four years ago that might be worth checking in with or writing about. Is he still living in the same place? Does she still have the same job? Do you still see each other and visit?

Photo finish Friday: “Wing tip”

Oftentimes the biggest thing holding you down is the crap from above that lands on your wings.

The coldest beer in the USA

by David E. Booker

 

The coldest beer in the USA

Drive up and down the pike

Turn left or turn right

You won’t find another

As cold and as clear tonight.

 

My truck broke down.

My dog died suddenly

And my woman, she left me

Running off with my brother

What else bad can there be?

 

The coldest beer in the USA

Drive up and down the pike

Turn left or turn right

You won’t find another

As cold and as clear tonight.

 

My barber’s quiet frown

Says my hair’s gone astray

Fading from my head, more each day.

Being bald makes me shudder.

I cry and throw my comb away.

 

The coldest beer in the USA

Drive up and down the pike

Turn left or turn right

You won’t find another

As cold and as clear tonight.

 

One left and eleven down.

Empties rattle in the back.

Now here comes the local flack.

He’s after me and no other.

I sip the last of the twelve pack.

 

The coldest beer in the USA

Drive up and down the pike

Turn left or turn right

You won’t find another

As cold and as clear tonight.

 

Sitting in a cell downtown

Waiting to be shipped to the jail

Nobody left to throw my bail.

Then I see my dear ol’ brother.

The look of man about to fail.

 

The coldest beer in the USA

Drive up and down the pike

Turn left or turn right

You won’t find another

As cold and as clear tonight.

 

I give him my best frown.

He walks over and says to me:

“Brother forgive and let it be

“She ran off with yet another.

“Our half-brother who’d been at sea.”

 

The coldest beer in the USA

Drive up and down the pike

Turn left or turn right

Sadly, we can’t have another

On this cold and clear tonight.

Photo finish Friday: “Woodn’t you know it?”

Would a cherry wood USS Enterprise mean it is a steam punk Enterprise? A Star Tree-k odyssey?

Photo finish Friday: “Broken”

Broken window, rundown house.

Photo finish Friday: “To boldly go…”

What would you do with a starship?
Where in heavens would you go?
What would you want to see?
Where would you explore?
To explore beyond the horizon
you will travel both in and out.
To see into the heavens
is to see wonder all about.
