The Lighter Side of JzB

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

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.

Carpe Diem #317, Ivory (provided by Bjorn Rudberg)

 Seven of our Eleven Grandchildren


in our family
we are melanin challenged -
ivory skin tone

Carpe Diem #317


  1. Extraordinary take on Ivory JzB, and what a wonderful photo ... 11 grandchildren ... awesome. Our seventh will hopefully be born next April, our youngest daughter and her boyfriend are expecting their first child.

  2. I like the direction of this poem, and love the photo!

  3. I love the photo of the grandchildren! They are beautiful! And I do believe this is the first time I have ever seen a caucasian referred to as melanin challenged......that is hilarious!


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
