“This week’s song is so good, I don’t want to delay the anticipation by typing on and on about liking you people. One of Leeroy’s favorites, Didi aka @seablackwithink, has the honors this week. She chose Poor Places by Wilco, from their legendarily awesome Yankee Hotel Foxtrot album. It’s one of my favorite bands, favorite records, and favorite songs. I wrote about 200 words then edited down to 100. My entry is not only a new Silas and Olive, two teenagers on the run in Florida in 1989, episode but also linked up to Velvet Verbosity ’s “Anonymous” 100 word prompt.”


If I could speak with your father, I’m sure we’d speak all night.

“We have the same habit, but that’s all right.”

Wonder how he’d feel that we’re together tonight.

“My heart is aching, nerves wrapped too tight.”

That’s ok man, just keep your goals insight.”

“A metal spring coiled so much it’s about to break.”

Just put on some music and give that tension the shake.” 

I laugh and nod. His advice I try to take.

A.C. spits out ice, look back he’s gone, maybe I’m just baked.

He’s gone or never saw him, but I smell old spice.

  1. There is a picture you posted of an old friend from our school days David L. Hagar that I have been trying to find for the last 3 years….The last time I saw him was in 1974 in Houston TX….How did you get his picture and do you know how to reach him….my name is Pat Granado

    • That is my fiances father. When she gets home, I will surely have her contact you in regards to him. I give you my word. I know he was a great man and I would have loved to meet him. My fiance’s name on wordpress is seablackwithink. So if you like you can contact her as well. The last time you saw him was ’74 that was 2 years before my fiance was born. She should be home very soon. I will pass on the message. 🙂 Have a good one, Pat.
