Hometown Pleasures

Whip-cream dollop atop Granny Smith apple pie fresh from the oven. Poetry readings in coffee houses performed to a bongo beat. Saturday afternoon park baseball coach buys the burgers. Crash’in, Smash’in theme park bumper cars rac’in Indy cars. Cold beer hammock swing in summer shared with the dog. Things that really make America superb!

Me too. (No I didn't end it with "great" because if this is "great", we've failed ourselves and our world. Thanks for reading.
