Days Of Our Lives

This is how it started Saturday
For daughter Joy and me
We were going to Elmcroft of Chesterfield
To keep our seniors company.

Oh what fun we’d have with them
Gonna make it a special day
We had a plan all worked out
Gonna do this our way.

Here’s Omar waiting to go with us

He loves the seniors too
Didn’t want to
But we had to say no
Just too many things to do.
That was okay, he understood
He’d seen us pack the truck
So off he went to K-9 town
A good deal we had struck.

We left too, daughter Joy and I
Off to read my “Omar Blue”
While Joy projected the pages
They’d see the pictures too.

While setting up our “production”
You’ll never guess what we found
Our projector bulb had blown out
And there were no more around.

Oh why did we buy from Craig’s List!
As if neither of us knew
For several hundred dollars
Our projector could have been new.

But that was the end of our special treat
What else could we do
We used our displays more effectively
And our bookmarks helped out too.

Then we held our book and shirt giveaway
And oh was I surprised
At the bigger pictures
On the winner’s shirt
She saw it in my eyes.

I said, don’t you think we need to trade
She said, what’s wrong with you
If you touch my shirt just one more time
I'm gonna get mad at you.

I guessed that meant she loved it
See the pretty smile on her face
Those smiles mean more than anything
So glad we found that place.

Now Joy and I are moving on
To Heritage Oaks next week
And as for that projector of ours
Hope it’s only a bulb we seek.

We hope you’ll take another moment to read what we’re all about at

K-9 Town Puppies Meet Demon Hallow

I made Omar Blue stay to eat a home given meal before leaving for K-9 Town. He hadn't been home long but I knew something was brewing. He gets so excited. I kept wishing I could go see but unlike a few times before, nothing happened. It worked out fine though because when Omar came back he was ready to tell this one......

The puppies were very happy
Under the big oak tree
They were planning another adventure
Oh my gosh, what could it be.
They had spotted a cave not far away
While running with the pack
They would wait for the Elders
To fall asleep
The plan was to go back.

The cave had been off limits
They were told never go in there
But that was when they were little
So the Elders wouldn’t care.

The only reason we’re waiting
Is because they’ll want to come too
We’re big enough to take care of ourselves
That’s just what we’re gonna do.

So off they went around midnight
Things were quiet as could be
The Elders were surely sleeping
So none of them could see.

They got to the cave and kept running through
Too late they became aware
The biggest demon they’d ever meet
With his pitchfork standing there.
They tried to leave but couldn’t move
This was a bad idea
If only the Elders had been awake
None of them would be here.

It was then that Demon Hallow spoke
His voice carried through the wall
You puppies better go right now
Or I’m gonna eat you all!

They managed to get their feet moving
Faster than ever before
They would never, ever go there again
Can’t even tell what they saw.

Meanwhile back at the demons cave
Omar Blue and his Pack
Were thanking their friend Demon Hallow
For sending the puppies back. 

They say all demons are very bad
Omar Blue says that’s not true
If you ever meet up with Demon Hallow
He’ll probably befriend you.
