White Picket Fences

As of this Memorial Day Weekend, "White Picket Fences" has become a fledgling literary journal. Still with the rough edges, but not just one man's effort any more.

I would like to recommend this blog from South Carolina. The lady who does this, I first found on 43things.com/ I have forgotten how to enter the links on the sidebar, so I'll just do this for now.

Hot torrid summer weather over, time to think and write more more more.


At the VFW Post in Reidsville, we were able to listen to our guest speaker, Coach Kaiser of Tatnall County High School, present to us his philosophy and practice of coaching. I liked what I heard.

Don't forget, Walmart is still out to make more than their share of bucks off of your poor cracker, black, and working class mexican asses.

Don't kid yourselves. The few jobs they would create with their part time promises and sexist employment, their hidden use of illegals, would not outweigh the competition they pose to your small town institutions. Walmart will flood your communities with cheap foreign shit and not pay taxes to your tax base.

Oh sure, they throw you guys a bone once in a while. "A check for $1000. for some outstanding teacher!" Oh, yes, let's all bow down and worship the great wally world. Thank you massa. Thank you for sellin' us cheap chinese shit and foreign imported foods."

Yes, here in the no man's land between Coastal Georgia and Atlanta, we do care about what happens "abroad."

I was elated at the news about Darfur; true, there are only sanctions, but at least it’s a significant milestone for America’s involvement to right the wrongs that have been occurring. Mr. Bush finally does the right thing, only for morality’s sake, not for oil, revenge, or geopolitics. (Well, maybe a little for geopolitics, but hey, it’s a small world).

I'm curious to see who else gives a damn.

The main ingredient of the root beer I have known, as far as I knew, was the root or bark of the sassafrass tree. Being of Mexican heritage, I was familiar with another name for root beer, by the Spanish name sasparilla, which I feel I've heard in English form somewhere, or read it. Maybe Mark Twain? (Oh now I hear the 'voice' of caliode, or is it lex,from the bulletin boards at the wordexchange at Collins, admonishing me to use the search engine. And yes, I found more than I ever wanted to know about the possible sources of flavourings of root beer at rootbeerworld.com:
And apparently, there is some debate whether or not sarsaparilla is a proper root beer.

Good day, dear readers, if any there be:
I'm sick almost as sick as a dog. Nasal passages and throat infected. So yeh of course, I'm not inviting you over to share this illness with us.
