Some friends aren't meant to be

Some friends aren't meant to be
You have to let them go
They always hurt your feelings
Respect they never show

A friend should not be told
Something confidential
Because you never know
They can become judgmental

A friend who is offensive
And won't apologize
You cannot reason with them
To reach a compromise

A dog can be your friend
They love to hear you talk
Waiting for those words
"How about a little walk"

Be your own best friend
Then no one can deceive
No one can betray you
And that you can believe

Volunteers are priceless
They’re needed everyday
Donating their time
Without asking for pay

Coaching kid’s sports
And scouting troops
Plus countless civic
And social groups

Because of their efforts
And money they raise
For churches, museums
Deserving our praise

There's so many places
That can use helpers
At food pantries
And animal shelters

With meals on wheels
Or as your tour guide
Great services
You would be denied

Those smiles they bring
To so many faces
With hospital visits
And classroom places

And volunteering
Will help fill their day
When they are retired
And don’t need the pay

They put out fires
These brave volunteers
Whenever they're needed
Without any fears

Thank you cards

Thank you cards
For gifts received
When I don’t get
I do get peeved

A gift that’s mailed
I’d like to know
If they got it
A card would show

How hard is it
To write a note
Saying you like
The large banknote

Birthday presents
And bridal showers
A thank you note
Even for flowers

Thank you cards
Handwritten and sent
Even for gifts
You’re not content

An email card
I didn’t expect
A video thank you
I’ll gladly accept

Traffic Jam

The cars are stopped
In one long row
A traffic jam
They cannot go

Just one person
In every car
They sit and wait
They can’t go far

The carpool lane
They cannot take
With just themselves
They can’t partake

The cost of gas
Cannot be split
Cause in their car
They only sit

No restroom stops
No place to eat
Because they're stuck
In  their car seat

So in my car
With room to spare
I'll sit and wait
When I can share

Seven Wonders of Oregon Trip (August 2016)

Oregon's 7 Wonders
While on a Mayflower tour
Sights I had never seen
Places I got to explore

Mt. Hood was truly amazing
The train ride was lots of fun
Plus I had time to shop
When the ride was done

On a boat ride in Hells Canyon
A dam we got to see
And the Geiser Grand Hotel
Really did relive history

The painted hills were lovely
Smith Rock I liked a lot
If they changed the schedule
More time we would have got

Crater Lake was beautiful
The sand buggies were a thrill
Waterfalls and light houses
Truly fit the bill

A damn good time I had
Aboard a comfortable bus
I mad a few new friends
And the guide dog never Fussed

Too much baggage

Do you have baggage
Something your regret
A terrible thing
You’ll never forget

Heavy baggage
Or baggage that’s light
But when it’s carried
You don’t feel right

A secret you can’t tell
To a spouse or friend
Because your actions
You cannot defend

You’re weighted down
With this burden you carry
When you think about it
It’s kind of scary

If this baggage gets lost
Be glad that it’s gone
And happier you’ll be
Not to take it along

Frank Sinatra
A Philly guy
Whenever he sang
He made the girls cry

Elvis Presley
His hips would swing
No one had ever
Seen such a thing

The Beatles Invasion
No guns, just songs
Causing an uproar
Among the throngs

Michael Jackson
Did the moon walk
His personal life
Created much talk

Madonna came
Breaking the ice
It was okay for women
To be naughty and nice

We’ve come to adore
Many of whom
Are with us no more
