Christmas poem by Pearlie Wright Print E-mail

By Pearlie Wright

Dear Santa,

I'm older now and realize just where you're coming from;
So you won't have to ask my mom if I've done something dumb.

I'd like to have a second chance at getting those rewards
that you give to all who are good and work real hard.

Mom just called and told me I forgot to seal this letter;
So you just wink your eye at me for you and I know better!

Merry Christmas to all!

"What It Feels Like" Print E-mail

When I was a teenager I used to wonder how an old person felt knowing that he was getting close to death. Since I am now in that category, the answer is slowly beginning to unravel.

My dad lived to be 96 years old and up until the last couple years, he never let on that he realized he was getting old. His favorite comment about age was, “old age is ten years older than you are.”

“Basketball Changes” Print E-mail

I have always liked basketball. Back in the old days this sport was the only key for a young country guy to escape into the exciting world of the heroes. When we had the opportunity to play we felt like gladiators as we ran onto the court to match skills with our opposition. Even though the spectators were fewer and the gyms were smaller, this event was the highlight of our existence. This game marked an extension of our community and school and both spectator and participant felt pride and took part in the action.

“Dangers” Print E-mail

Man has been fascinated with danger since the beginning of time. This trait is displayed in the lives of humans every day. Why else would man strive to go 300 miles per hour in a vehicle, climb a high mountain, fight lions and tigers, charm poisonous snakes, be awed by shocking rides at theme parks, swim in shark infested waters and risk losing his happy home by cheating on his wife?
