One Single Impression: Lighthouse (an acrostic)

...(an acrostic)

Light shines brightly
Guide for sailors
Heralds the shore
Times of gone by
Home for keeper
O lonely place
Untold beauty
Seen so seldom

Lighthouse is at Point Bolivar, Texas,
adjoining Galveston on the east
after a brief ferry ride.

Acrostic: Out House

[large picture] [super sized]


Outdoor privy sitting
Under the oak
Tree's shelter; peeing.

How I like
Our freedom there
Under the stars,
Sharing splashes with
Everyone around.

Anniversary Post Newsletter — MidWeek Blues — What is this thing?

Note, please don't forget to enter Adi's contest.
Click here. You have until Next Sunday.
You are permitted to change or update your answers.

Today is the start of my fifth year of blogging. I have just completed four full years.

I will do three things in this post. First I need to do a MidWeek Blues picture. Second will be a statistical update. This will be followed by a short evaluation of areas of which I am concerned. Some will affect you, dear reader.

MidWeek Blues:
What is it?
Hints: (1) Don't kick it, you'll hurt your foot (2)
It isn't a rock or stone

Answers will be given, and shown on my next week's MidWeek Blues post.

Areas of concern

Friend list: I need to update my friends lists. I have three categories which are '... Friends ...', 'Haven't Heard From These Lately', and 'The Bone Yard'.
Very soon I will move a bunch to the lower two categories (The Bone Yard has invisible links) and add some new Friends.

Mrs. Jim annual performance evaluation: Time is now. She has been an excellent wife but these things still need to be done. If she reads it she might find out how good I think she is. (I hold her on a pedestal.)

Consolidation: Every year I think about having just one blog. Right now basically I have the three active ones and it seems to be working.

Neglected areas:
1. Ask Dr. Jim (blog) needs to be updated at least once a week. It hasn't been nearly that often lately.
2. Jim1Jim1 (YouTube) needs some new videos. Most times I make them pertinent to a current blog post.

A minor concern: People believe everything that I say. Not all my poems are true. Please don't believe every word I write there as gospel, some is poetic fiction.

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did. .
Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE, you don't have to write.
