The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side
of JzB
see my other blog,
Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

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.

Sensational Haiku Wednesday - Draft


I've been told this is
The reason why Guinness is
Better in Ireland

Finish last in the
N F L and then you get
First pick of rookies

If the water is
Too shallow, my boat is not 
On an even keel

No need to pay me
In cash.  I think your check will
Do.  Just please don't bounce

The chill in my toes
Is from the cold air that sneaks
Down through my chimney

L.A. Time CrossWord Puzzle Blogging

 Wednesday, February 22 2012  Gareth Bain

 Theme: Walt and Oscar make Beautiful music.   Five (!) theme answers are Best Song Oscar winners from Disney animated movies.  Two of them grid spanning, two are almost, and the middle one misses only by two.  Wow.  I had no idea.

A 17. Best Original Song Oscar winner from ... Disney's "Pocahontas" : COLORS OF THE WIND.    Who is the savage?

A 23. ... Disney's "Aladdin" : A WHOLE NEW WORLDMagic Carpet Ride.

A 39. ... Disney's "Song of the South" : ZIP-A-DEE-DOO-DAH.  Mr. Bluebird's on my shoulder.

 A 53. ... Disney's "Mary Poppins" : CHIM CHIM CHER-EE.  Are you feeling lucky?

 A 61. ... Disney's "Monsters, Inc." : IF I DIDN'T HAVE YOU.  Those dreams do come true.

Hi. gang.  Jazzbumpa here.  It's my pleasure to take you on a wonderful musical adventure today.  There was a time when Gareth and I were joined at the virtual interface - just by chance, each of my blogging dates lined up with his puzzle publications.  I think we hit three in a row that way.  But this is our first meeting since then, and it's been far too long.  Let's segue right into the action.

Six Word Saturday

Playing for a diner dance tonight.

Good time - and they feed us!

God love those fun filled Presbyterians.

We'll do this song - much quicker

Mellow Yellow Monday

This Plush Lightning McQueen opens into a pillow.  We gave it to four-year-old grandson Josh for Christmas.  His favorite activity is playing with cars.

After a hard day
Of driving; this soft car - a
Place to rest your head.

Sensational Haiku Wednesday - CRAFT


Skill, ability
Bent to the task at hand
Can achieve greatness.

I'm hoping that my
Kitchen "Kraft" enables me
To wrap cheese slices.

Air, water and space:
A craft for every type of
Not-on-land travel

That old black magic
Has me in its spell; that old
Black magic that you . . .
