Poetry by Robert Stone, All evidence, a sonnet

All evidence of what once - a sonnet of hope By Robert Stone
The rains both slow and heavy washed away
all evidence of what once happened here
and only memories remain to stay
oblivion from claiming what was dear.

The reins both tight and loose in steady hands
safe pathway kept through danger and upset
and with thanksgiving gallantry expands
to calm the fears concerning future threat.

The reigns both short and long have shown sure need
of dedicated lives in freedom's realm
and day by day the vigilant pay heed --
neglected strong the weak can overwhelm.

The past unchangeable now grows obscure
and only faith sustains what will endure.

- Robert Stone, 7 July 2013

Agrees with Carol Perkins on Paula Deen

Pat Sutton writes:
This article was right on about the branding of Paula Deen! I too think she needs Martha Stewarts PR people. Martha was placed in prison for something the "good old boys" had done for centuries and their hands were not even slapped. It was because Martha was a woman and smarter than the "good old boys." I believe our culture now ridicules and brands an a scarlet letter on the person's chest who tells the truth, shows their imperfections, and tries to apologize for them. I will be so proud for Paula if she would hold her head up high and come back stronger and proud as ever. I enjoyed reading your article because it spoke the truth. Thanks! - Pat Sutton

Mojo and Chip remind her of her own buddy, Buddy

Sandi Wills writes:
This Happy Tail about Mojo and Chip and the Rainbow Bridge just made me cry. I knew both Chip and Mojo and Peg is so right: Mojo was one of the best dogs ever! I feel so sad for Chip!

My own buddy, "Buddy," has been with me 15 years and we have traveled all together. He is getting tired and I agonize about that inevitable decision that will come some day. Our dogs are not just our pets - they are our best friends.

I don't want to think about a "replacement" dog but I know I will rescue another best friend and remember Buddy forever. Great job on Happy Tails Peg. Need to go find Kleenex now.... - Sandi Wills

Carol Perkins: Paula Deen

It's a topical story about forgiveness, redemption. Who gets it. Who doesn't. The latter may have better PR people. Carol Perkins thinks Paula should hire Martha Stewart's people
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: Richard Duncan recalls 1950s HS gyms

By Carol Perkins

When a little girl comes home from school and says, "No one will play with me," do you really think that's true? Could it be that someone will play with her, but maybe not the ones she wants? Could it be that the ones who do want to play with her feel just as rejected when she turns her back on them because they aren't "cool" enough? Being a girl means a lifetime of drama. Boys, in contrast, seldom care who wants to play with them and often prefer to play alone. At least that has been my observation. All of this brings me to the topic of Paula Deen and the drama surrounding her.

Happy Tail: Mojo Von Buren, III

This Happy Tale is one of joy, sadness, and hope. It's about an all important person, Peg's son Chip, and two very special animals, Mojo Von Buren, III; and the great German Shepherd's pal, Reebok the Cat, and about the hardest decision a person who loves a pet ever has to make - but knows when it's the right thing to do.

By Peg Schaeffer
News from Sugarfoot Farm Rescue

Fourteen years ago my son, Chip, brought home a German Shepherd puppy. Mojo Von Buren, III was your typical German Shepherd pup, large, clumsy, and so cute. Chip had high hopes for Mojo, as all parents do. Most of all he wanted Mojo to be huge and he wanted him to be a watchdog.

We see it. We sense its presence. We walk around it. But elephants don't belong in rooms; so we don't talk about it, though the floor joists creak and it sits in the only chair.
