Comment: Carol Perkins has it right on tipping

Carol S Myers writes:
Well said, Mrs. P.!! Both my children worked waiting tables while in college, so I've heard some real horror stories. That's why I always remember how hard waiters/waitresses work and tip them well. It sounds to me as if some patrons "have gotten above their raising." - Carol S/ Myers

Poetry by Robert Stone: Fainting goats, pearls, and necklaces

Fainting goats, pearls, and necklaces
- a sonnet reflecting on a day experiences
Desires without fulfillment roam and roar,
submerging common sense in septic moat,
but time enough will whittle back to core
and past stirred up will fall like fainting goat.

Possession prized becomes the tie to try
unwillingness to break unholy hold,
but distance does not save from love's sharp cry
and fairest pearl is naught to passion bold.

Remembrances distort the new-known now,
demanding what has been will always be,
but viewpoints change when challenged by and how
and from fear's choking necklace truth is free.

No treasure is the final treasure sought,
for unexpected joys cannot be bought.

- Robert Stone, 13 October 2013

Carol Perkins: It is not about tipping - but common decency

'Waiters and waitresses have no choice but to treat mean-spirited customers well if they want to keep their jobs. They soon learn the regulars and who is nice and who is not. They learn who tips well and who doesn't no matter how good the service. They look forward to the nice people and dread the rude ones. For every hundred happy customers, there will be one who will find something to snarl about or to snap over. That one is the person who is most remembered.' - CAROL PERKINS
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Fall Break. Posted October 13, 2013<

By Carol Perkins

I have never been a waitress, but I can imagine how impossible and unrewarding that job can be. Even though many servers make excellent tips, they work hard for them. However, for every person who tips well, there are those who don't tip at all, but this isn't about tipping.

It's about common decency.

Happy Tail - Eeyore

A Happy Tail which would make a Tv serial, definitely a series of children's books: "Eeyore." - CM. Eeyore will continue to be our main donkey. There is a pasture of cattle across the street from us and there are two donkeys protecting them. Eeyore has an escape route from his pasture and goes into our hay field to talk across the road to the neighboring donkeys. Maybe they're conversing about the coyotes they are protecting their wards from or maybe Eeyore is bragging that he has Delilah and they don't have a girl. Who knows? But you can be sure they're doing their job - protecting the animals they've been assigned to care for. - PEG SCHAEFFER.

Eeyore is our donkey.

He's been a member of the Sugarfoot Farm family for 20 years - longer than anyone else. I got him at an auction. Two donkeys came into the ring - one was black, the other white.

Chuck Hinman: IJMA. A man named Bob

Chuck Hinman: A man named Bob. Chuck says that he fought every day for Connie's femininity in the nursing home and we won -- so much so that someone else took an interest in her.
Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - Getting My Stories Published

By Chuck Hinman

A man named Bob

After having to place Connie in a nursing home, I had difficulty turning over to their staff such things as choosing the daily clothes she was to wear. I had been involved in her personal care for almost 20 years. I had grown to love the job! I had developed a nice wardrobe of attractive -- stylish clothes for her. She didn't have 'everyday clothes.' She was always dressed up. Why not? She had graduated from mundane things that women ordinarily do. She was my woman and I loved her so! And I knew she liked the role so I spoiled her big time!
