Thursday Haiku


Today is Thursday

One more day ’til the weekend

Boy, I like Fridays

Alright folks, this is yet another example of a poorly constructed haiku poem and all around bad blog entry. Haiku should be witty, clever and thought-provoking. Mine is, well…..none of the above . Perhaps I should blame it on a gray and drizzly autumn afternoon or maybe I should petition the reader to submit his or her own haiku? Sound good? One quick rule : it has to contain something pertaining to autumn. Oh, and one more thing: it has to be better than mine. Or not. Whatever. It doesn’t really matter does it? Frankly, just write something.

Ok? On your mark. Get set. Haiku!

Samson: Portrait of an American Canine.


The American Kennel Club describes the Golden Retriever :

A symmetrical, powerful, active dog, sound and well put together, not clumsy nor long in the leg, displaying a kindly expression and possessing a personality that is eager, alert and self-confident.

Symmetrical.  Check.

Powerful. Check.

Active. Check.

Sound, well put together, not long in the leg, displays a kindly expression and possessing a personality that is eager, alert and self-confident.  Check, check, check, check, check and check.

Not clumsy?  The AKC and I will have to part ways on this one, however to be fair,  our wood floors aren’t exactly Samson’s best friend.

My First Post


Hi.  How are you?  My name is Jeff.  Welcome to my new blog.  I have decided to give myself exactly 4 minutes per day to post something interesting even though there’s a slim chance of that actually happening.   But, what have I got to lose?  So, without further adieu

My first post:

It’s the middle of September.  Cooler weather is just around the corner.   While at times ( during the warm summer months) I find myself clenching a tall, cold mug of a fine stout or ale, I don’t believe my masculinity is at stake admitting to dreaming of that delicious creamy Autumn delight: Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Happy September!
