Woodsmen Day

Woodsmen Day ( Poem)

Sport using handsaws

With a toothed edge blade

One or two handed sawing

On a woodsmen fair day

Traditional log rolling

Is a lumberjacks technique

Style used in river driving

The illustration is unique

Springboard tree is branchless

With live action you can’t beat

Platform board is dangerous

A risk if you compete

Block ax chopping

Is a loggers sport indeed

Hard on your back swinging

Wishing Witch

Wishing Witch

My Halloween screenplay is funny as can be

It’s funny how witchcraft is what we need to see

Brewing up trouble with all your classmates

The teacher will get angry, make no mistake

Crazy riddles from a child can be so scary

Being her classmate leaves you feeling wary

You may start a princess and end as a boar

As her riddles will leave you in an uproar

Will you return to normal after all this nonsense

Is the question…

Broken Souls

Broken Souls

I talk to producers of books and screenplays

My tormented farm life strayed my way

Strict sheltered home and harsh realities

Today’s modern world and mental tragedies

Constantly under pressure, was pure and healthy

I find I was repressed by everything I’d see

Never exposed to the world most know

By turning on t.v and watching a show

The day finally came, I had to leave home

To the hard tough world, I felt so…

The Warmth Of Homemade

The Warmth Of Homemade

Cooking, freezing, and raspberry jam

Beef stew, salmon pie, and egg rolls out of ham

Quick party foods and a hunters breakfast

Castle cake, feather bed, and little trees for Christmas

Cakes of Dolphin, Smurf, and Muno too

Butterfly, Barbie Doll with thousands of views

Baby items, aprons, and dresses to sew

You can make your own maple syrup, you know

Wreaths, snowmen, and Christmas logs are a craft

Incompetence of the Town of Smithfield

Incompetence of the Town of Smithfield

Smithfield is a small community that is a nice quiet place to relax, play and live. Our town was incorporated on February 29, 1840 making it "Maine's only Leap Year Town". There are many things that make this town an enjoyable place, but lately the people hired in the town office have made it a difficult place to live. Specifically the selectmen Richard A. Moore, Dale M. Churchill, and Justin S. Furbush have chosen to neglect their responsibilities…

Family » by Jo Christian Oterhals)

At some point during this past winter, I thought it would be interesting to see if I could come up with a bunch of songs that I could play on my own, without the need of a backing band. I had always wanted to try my luck at busking, but because of the demands of Poligraf, I…

Best Thanksgiving EVAH!

I just returned from my road trip to Denver, where I stayed with my sister and nephew and enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with them and my GFs, Rockin' Robin and Pat. RR, Pat and I also celebrated 20 years of friendship that included shopping at Robin's store and an amazing dinner at Colterra. It was an awesome meal, made better because of the special service we got since they love RR!
