Twaddle Flap

As I was un-cluttering today, I ended up with a small stack of scrap notes. Some notes were easy to remember and understand, but other notes were very sketchy. I thought it would be fun to extract some of the words (and a few numbers) for this romp-with-words poem:

I was speaking of “Stink Pink”. When we were building Main Street house, a man named Bob was working with Mike and taught us the game. We put in some long hours and this was one of the pastimes as we worked! The rule is to give a hint that describes two rhyming words. If the words have one syllable, you say “It’s a “Stink Pink“.

My Mama went to be with the Lord on February 9, 2011 She was able to be at home when she died. I am blessed to have been beside her with Mike and Dad at her passing and to have seen her trust her soul to the Lord.
