Don't Eat The Olianders

Pretty poison in the yard. Butterflies Abound - Horseflies fly into pool. Bees Buzz! Algae, fish, lady bugs, yard tools. Grandma's house is pretty. Houdini The Turtle escapes to visit. Next door, new Neighbor - Max! Runs with Arthur - Chow! Eddie and Max run for a ball, Mom throws. Catching night fireflies, letting them go. Sparklers burn bright. Yearning to learn, What a wonderful childhood. Theirs, mine. Black widow spiders at pond's edge, fish Larger each year. Beautiful webs hang by Dream catcher - Chimes! Tree grows over Waterfall. Wildflowers in the rock path. Cactus. Desert beauty blooms. Algae blooms. Mesquite overhangs driveway - Sharp, Ouch! Rock bench for writing and reading, taking In all of God's wonders. Blue skies, Sun Warms my face as I wish a wish, bidding a Neighbor hello, goodbye, or Good Luck! Moved on to Grandma's house by the little Church. I walked to hear music and words To live by. Tyler had a coke and asked me Why my treadmill was dusty. Pictures adorn Walls and furniture. Books adorn shelves. With antiques, dolls, bears, knickknacks, Snacks, candles, flowers. Red juice for Mykayla, milk for Matthew. Bar B Que adults Enjoy our getting together to bless meals. Christmas exchanges, warm fire, pretty tree And decor, Wyland's piano. Halloween Pumpkin carving, costumes and candy! Thanksgiving we held hands and gave thanks For an excellent meal and good health all. Beautiful hutch full of mementos, pictures Adorn buffet. Casey's on the computer and Tyler wants another blanket. I'm another Grandma Smith and I couldn't ask for more.
