The battle of the bulge
Goldfinch60 said:

It takes a great deal of mental strength to forego some of the wonderful food that tempts one. I too need to lose some weight and in the past when I have lost weight all I do is still eat what I like but in smaller servings, it seems to work for me.

The start before any type of sports match can always be tense.

Stop Chewing Dear....
Unsub said:

GF,

how does chewing gum ruin the taste of your coffee?

The person may have a confidence issue & chewing gum helps them or they may be trying to give up smoking; better to chew than pass you the coffee whilst holding a cig?

Anyway I\'m just looking at it from a chewers point of view.

It\'s the person inside that counts.

I still enjoyed the poem & thought I\'d add a response on their behalf!

No offence my friend.

Unsub.

I thoroughly agree with you. Manners are being seriously eroded in today’s culture.

LED Street Lamp Rant

Be careful of the shadows. Unsub may be in one of them, or even worse I may be in one of them.

Growing Old
Goldfinch60 said:

Age is just a number, I reach the three score years and ten next month but although I am slower than I used to be the glory of life is still enjoyed.

Carefree Summers
Goldfinch60 said:

I remember the summer of 1976 when our garden in Kent was almost totally white. Rochester is built on chalk.

Buckingham Palace
orchidee said:

A fine write Retired. Me too - only seen the outside.
One place I will never go is Beckingham Palace (the Beckhams) as it\'s called.

Steve Jobs’ Dying Words
Goldfinch60 said:

Good write, giving is much more rewarding than receiving and if you can give time it is the most precious gift of all.

Steve Jobs’ Dying Words
Fay Slimm. said:

Excellent piece of advice and a needed reminder of how short is a lifespan -- - yes indeed how we give is far more significant than how much we take. A great read.

The Handbag

Nice poem!
P.S.
I get my two kids wanting to store everything in it when we go out! Big NO!

The Handbag
D. K. Heqet said:

This was a great depiction of a handbag. You never know who or what you might find in them! Hell, you could even lose yourself. But at least those with handbags are always prepared (if they can find anything quick enough).

The Handbag
dusk arising said:

Oh my word yes. Memories of attempting to find lost keys and a near broken wrist.
Does it matter how many handbags are possessed? Is each one a holy grail in its own right? I fear that is the case you know.

The Handbag
Goldfinch60 said:

So very true, I nearly lost my fingers once as I tried to reach for my wife\'s handbag.
Our daughter has a handbag large enough to carry the world in it!

The Breakfast Buffet
Goldfinch60 said:

I eat muesli at home, when in hotels I have the Full English Breakfast WITH black pudding. When I was working I used to drive all over the country installing computer software and used to stay in many hotels, one up in Hexham I used to use a great deal and they got to know me. One morning I went down to breakfast and ordered my normal Full English, as did another guy unknown to me, the meals arrived at the same time and we both said together, “Where’s the Black Pudding!” They had run out.

A fine write Retired. I know - I can\'t eat a big breakfast, and never have a fried brekkie. Yuk!

But would you regret it? I can certainly relate to this poem, so glad I don\'t go on holiday to often. Love your rhyming scheme. Maggie

Bowel Scope Screening
orchidee said:

Whoops! You would have got your own back on them, if you had! (last line of poem). lol.
In a \'Carry on\' film they used a funnel and rubber tube up the botty, to get a confession from a scheming doctor. They tried other things too, but that \'enema\' was the torture he could not endure, and he confessed! You may know the film.
