The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

To a paradox.


Sometimes life just aint
Easy.  Good choices, but bad 
Outcomes: Paradox.


My paradox is
Quite unorthodox: it has

Sorry.  That last one is an even worse play on an old, bad chemistry joke.   It's marginally funnier (at the link) if the symbols are "MD" rather than "Doc."

Join the fun!
