Whimsy

The time has come
my job is done
the bird has flown
our crops are sown
the ice will melt
my hand is delt
My day is done
let's have some fun!

I just got back from my National Meeting

phweeeeeeeew!  I am so tired.  My day started at 5am and we had functions till 10:15 each evening for 3 days.  I just got back on Saturday evening.  Lots of information.  We had excellent artists that performed for us (a definite benefit for working in the music biz)!  Here is a list of the performers I saw this last week:

The Jones Gang, Ryan Caberra, Chris Botti, Pauly Shore, Hulk Hogan, Brooke Hogan, Glen Lewis, Randy Jackson, Rich Vos, Jerrery Steele, Tamirah Grey, Van Hunt, Jeff Timmons, Jonathan Cain, Boyz II Men, Black Eyed Peas, and Collective Soul. 

 

(I missed a few, I was very tired each evening and I didn't write everyone's name down like I should have)

I worked the autograph tent at OzzFest...

I spent twelve hrs working the autograph tent at OzzFest yesterday, I am wore out!

 

 

Sunday, August 8, 2004

I finished my first full week of work at my new job...

Last Wednesday was my first week of employment and last Friday was my first full week of employment!  I am still in training and it is going great.  This Friday I work the OZfest here in St. Louis.  I am NOT looking forward to spending ALL day in the hot sun with the Heavy Metal Dudes.  Say La Vee!  I travel with the outgoing DM next week, and the week following that I travel with a DM in Florida for a week.  BusyBusyBusy...

 

 

Tuesday, July 27, 2004

I start my new JOB tomorrow!

I spoke with my home office today to let them know that I completed the pre-employment drug screening this morning.  And "Yes", it is as weird as it looks on the TV shows.  I am waiting for them to call back and let me know where to meet the outgoing DSM tomorrow so I can begin my training. 

                                            Yipee!  David<~~~has a JOB!

It had to happen sooner or later...

The company I interviewed with in Albany, NY made me an offer on Monday.  Since then progressivily higher ranked executives have called me at home to speak with me.  I am very flattered but I still have one more company to hear from.  I will be able to let them know my decision by Thursday.  ::crosses my fingers:: (and my toes)...

::BIG GRIN::

My interview in Albany went VERY well!  Yay for me!

 

 

Thursday, July 15, 2004

FINALLY, things are looking up...

Had an interview with Old Time Pottery yesterday.  It went really well.  I would enjoy running a store for them.  I fly out to Albany, NY early tomorrow morning.  Did I mention that I was flying out EARLY?  I have to be at the airport AT 5am for my 6am flight...::sigh::!  I fly back to STL early Saturday morning, I'm going to miss the beginning of our Moving Sale here at the house.  Trish is a real trooper, I love her like grapes!  I also have another company interested in me for a DSM position with their company.  Three possible Store Manager positions, and three possible District Sales Manager positions.  I need a J-O-B real bad!  Wish me luck everyone!

I'm all moved in to Trish's house, YAY!

HERE ARE TWO POEMS THAT I WROTE AT MIZZOU, THESE ARE THE ORIGINAL VERSIONS OF THOSE POEMS.  I TRIED TO RECREATE THEM LATER, AND I GUESS MY MEMORY ISN'T AS GOOD AS I THOUGHT IT WAS...LOL!

 

I REMEMBER

i dreamed of you

just a glimpse i remember

looking so beautiful

such a silken presence

brushed your cheek against mine

just a glimpse i remember

i dreamed of you

 

The Summer Storm

Summer winds do blow cold

when they come on like a sigh

And when the clouds come rolling in

they put a tear in my eye

A lonely heart beats the time

of the thunder in the sky

And when the rains come falling down

they trace a pathway from my eye

And I know that without my love

like the storm

I must surly die

 

AND THIS POEM I WORTE FOR MY STORE MANAGERS ON HALLOWEEN...

 

MY VOICEMAIL POEM FOR HALLOWEEN

Pumpkins carved

and candy corn

Ghosts are fed

and Goblins born

Spooks are running

doorbells ringing

Tricks advoiding

treats are bringing

"What are you?"

"Your costume's a scream!"

"A Fireman?"

"HAVE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN!"

Puppy Update!

 

We have decided to keep "The Brown Puppy" and give "The White Puppy" to the Mother of one of the children Trish watches in her DayCare.  Since "The Brown Puppy" is the son of Otto, we have decided to name him...

 

 

                     BEAMER!

New Puppy Pic!

We are giving "The White One" away, and are keeping "The Brown One".  Any suggestions for a name for "The Brown One"?  Please let me know in the comments section...

FAIRIE WAYS

The time before,

is no more.

I learned of farie ways,

stumbling through a farie daze.

One should not dance,

nor take the chance,

of a faire wish,

nor a faire dish.

Enchanted you will be

and the fey you will see.

A hundred years,

and a hundred tears,

will all come to pass,

should you tread upon their grass.

All you have cared for,

will be no more.

So wipe away your tears,

and live out the rest of your years.

With the memory of the place

and the laughter of a forgotten race...

The trip to Texas was great!

 

Trish and I drove down to the Ranch so she could meet my parents.  It went well.  She makes me very happy.  On the return trip she would sing along to the songs on the radio, it makes me smile just thinking about it...

 

Here is the link to ALL the pictures I took while Trish and I were in Texas...

"Thank You Trish!"

 

I ran out and bought some groceries this morning.  While at the store I picked up a yellow 1/4 sheet cake and had the bakery lady write "Thank You Trish".  So then I told all the kids that Trish watches, that they had to be good and tell Trish "Thank You" and then they could have a piece of the cake.  It was a BIG hit!  Trish started out by eating part of the blue flower petals and smearing it all over her teeth and tongue.  Sooooooooooooooo then everyone had to put the blue died icing on their tongues too!  I have a blast, LOL!

David<~~~~~going to Softball practice

 

Every Monday, Madie has Softball practice.  I have been to everyone so far.  It is a hoot.  A bunch of 5 yr old girls alternating between throwing the ball, sitting down on the field when they are supposed to be playing, giggling while pushing each other, knocking the heck out of the ball, talking to their parents on the sidelines, running the bases.  I have a blast!  I am going to miss Madie's first game though, Trish and I are going to Texas so she can meet my folks.  I am looking forward to showing her off, but it sucks that I'm going to miss Madie's first game.  I have signed up to work the concessions stand on the 4th of July, no other parents wanted to work that date (not that I'm a parent, but I wish I was...).  They got their practice shirts last night, RedWhiteandBlue!  LOL!  They look so cute in their shirts.  I'll take pictures next practice...

In the still of the night...

In the still of the night

I can hear her breathing

In the still of the night

she stirs with knitted brow

In the still of the night

her dreams are troubled

In the still of the night

she moans and is afraid

In the still of the night

she cries out as if wounded

In the still of the night

I worry about her

In the still of the night

I turn to her

In the still of the night

I call her name and caress her

In the still of the night

I wake her from her nightmare

In the still of the night

I hold her in my arms

In the still of the night

I murmur little things to her

In the still of the night

she quiets and calms

In the still of the night

I love her so

In the still of the night

she falls sleep

In the still of the night

she is still again

Tuesday, March 16, 2004

Her name is Trish...

she lives here in St. Louis about 7 minutes away from me...

The Promise to Myself



A circle of gold upon my finger

a promise to myself

Two hands hold my heart

wishing for love

Hoping for loyalty

sending my heart out

Sometimes to far

seeing it cast aside

Holding it close again

to keep it from harm

It's time to turn my ring again

Because I will never quit

looking for her

And I will keep

the promise to myself

I can

 

I can go

 

a little bit

 

a little bit further

 

it'll be

 

ok for me

 

a little bit

 

a little bit further

 

now to

 

find someone who

 

will go with me

Talking with BlockBuster

 

 

the Smith's said it best in their song...

 

"Good times for a change

see the luck I've had

can make a good man go bad

so please please please

let me let me let me

let me get what I want this time

 

Haven't had a dream in a long time

see the life I've had

can make a good man bad

so for once in my life

let me get what I want

Lord knows it'll be the first time

Lord knows it'll be the first time..."

all night long

 

all night long

tears stream down my face

all night long

I wander about my place

all night long

I regret the things I said

all night long

my heart again feels dead

all night long

I stare at my laptop screen

all night long

I shouldn't have dared to dream

all night long

I'm afraid, just like before

all night long

love shouldn't be such a chore

all night long

I wish things were different

all

night

long

I have a visitor coming this weekend...

after a while you would think I'd get tired of looking at myself...hmmmmmmmmm I guess not!

 

 

my heart it dances...

 

 

sitting here

                   without fear

waiting for

                   an open door

her arrival

                  is my survival

like a butterfly

                        my heart flies by

at the end of the day

                                   my heart will be ok

so I'm taking chances

                                     my heart it dances....

 

 

 

 

 

 

(yes I used the imagery before, but I love it soooooooooo!)

Building Walls...

the tower

 

standing still

reaching high

solidly built

I know why...

safely secure

thickly made

defensive position

because I'm afraid...

barring admittance

keeping away

emotional safety

at the end of the day...

hopefully looking

rampart pacing

eagerly searching

my heart is racing...

heartfelt words

lifelong wishes

taking chances

I know what the gist is...

waiting still

seeing chances

taking them

my heart it dances...

"To Serve Man"

 

GUNFIGHT AT WM CORRAL

 

Wal-Mart Sam rode into town

and all the prices did fall down

Local men tried to attack

but Wal-Mart Sam fired back

He killed one, he killed them all

and then the bodies began to fall

Down at the local business landing

not one store was still left standing

Wal-mart Sam won the day

and now we all are going to pay

No one came to the local's aid

and now there's no place left to trade

If you bow to Wal-Mart Sam

(and I never will by God Damn)

You can buy cheap goods cheap

and all the local money will heap

at the boots of this dirty weevil

and all his cronies down at B-ville 

So sorry for the lack of choices

and all the crying of all the voices

of all the people out of work

by this one discounting jerk

So take your pennies you did pinch

and give them to the B-Ville Grinch

and learn to like his inferior products

and all the hardship that you bought us

So wave goodbye as he rides away

with all our money at the end of the day

 

 

(please forgive the bitterness and forced rhymes)

 

 

 

David-The Ultimate Talking Action Figure

I'm reading a book on Quantrill's Raiders...

 

Here is a song Ed Koger wrote about an incident where Riley Alley invited Quantrill to a ball so that the Union Soldiers could capture the famous Guerrilla fighter...

 

Old Rile Alley gave a ball,

The Feds came down and took us all

Over the ice and over the snow--

Sing-Song Kitty, won't you kiss-me-o!

Old Rile Alley gave a ball,

Planned to catch Quantrill and bushwack all,

But Quant was smart and didn't go---

Sing-Song Kitty, won't you kiss-me-o!

 

 

 

to know where you are going, you have to know where you come from...

Here is a poem my Pap-pa taught me...

 

In days of old

when Knights were bold

and toilets weren't invented

they'd lay their load

beside the road

and go along well contented

Yet more pictures from my brother...

 

(OK, IT IS OFFICIAL, I HATE AOL, I HAVE TO DOWNLOAD AND ORGANIZE ALL THE PICS AGAIN BECAUSE AOL KEEPS LOSING MY PICS OFF OF MY JOURNAL................)

 

I wrote this for a friend of mine...

 

Won't you come back to me?

 

the winter sun is rising

the winter day is shining

Won't you come back to me

a January wind is blowing

a January sky is snowing

Won't you come back to me

the winter sun is setting

the winter day is jetting

Won't you come back to me

the January moon is rising 

the January stars are shining

Won't you come back to me

a winter man is sleeping 

a winter dream is leaping

Won't you come back to me

 

a January's day...

 

a winter's stay...

 

please come back to me

 

 

 

 

More pictures from my brudda!

TODAY

 

today is the day

that yesterday

seemed so far away

 

tomorrow will be

not so bad for me

 

the future is wide open...

 

 

 

 

Music and poetry can change your life...

Shattered 9th & CHERRY a COCKTAIL GALERIE & DANCETERIA

 

"THAT'S A DOLLAR COVER" <~~~~~~~~~my ill spent youth

 

Every Tuesday down at Shattered was Stephens Night.  Kind of a rich college girl's version of Ladies Night.  I went religiously.  New Wave, Punk, House, Acid House, Techno, Hip Hop, Rock, Goth.  I danced to it all.  It was wonderful.  Friday and Saturday night was more of the same.  I was in Columbia for over 10 yrs and I saw three crops of Stephen's Girls go thru town.  It was a great time.  Here are some pictures I took one night down at my favorite dance spot...

the ship that sails my dreams...

I am the Captian of my own dreams

 

I close my eyes

and I am at sea

to sleep so deep

to be so free

I ride the waves

in my hooker black

I see the horizon

I don't look back

Gently swaying

on tossing waves

I fall asleep

it's rest I crave

So wave good bye

and say farewell

I'll sleep all night

till all is well...

THE MOON IS BEAUTIFUL TONIGHT...

 

THE JANUARY MOON

 

AN EVENING SKY

A PERFECT BLACK

CRISP STILL NIGHT

LONE STAR PIERCES

THE WINTER SCENE 

LIKE A PHANTOM

MY BREATH CURLS

AND RIBBONS UP

INTO THE NIGHT

AND I SEE

THE FULL MOON

LIT SO BRIGHT

CIRCLE OF IVORY

SHINING ON HIGH

A PALE HALO

SURROUNDS THE SPHERE

AND I NOTICE

IT WATCHES ME

AS I STROLL

A HALF SMILE

CROSSES MY FACE

BECAUSE I KNOW

THE WORLD MOVES

AND TIME PASSES

ALL IS OK

EVEN FOR ME

AND I SMILE

I like her smile...

 

 

A poem for Susan...

 

With eyes a twinkling and a laughing smile

Her voice so sweet, without any guile

With her loving nature and protecting arms

She raised her family and kept them from harm

With her creamy skin and auburn hair

I surprised myself and began to care

Where this will lead us, where this will go

I'm haven't a clue, but I'd like to know

So I'm sitting back and taking it easy

following my heart

to see

where it

leads me...

Ok, new day, moving forward...

 

 

"left right left right left..."

(putting one foot in front of the other)

I have this Queen song running thru my head...

 

 

 

 

another one gone, another one gone, another one bites the dust...

 

 

 

 

 

Just woke up and I have the whole day off!

 

 

Sitting here enjoying the quiet of an early Saturday morning, the only sounds are the ticking of my clocks and my wind chimes out on the balconey...

 

Good morning everyone!

David

Home sick today

poem for today

 

the day is new

the day was long

my time is now

my time is gone

I see before me

I see behind

I'm out of chances

I'm out of time

I turn to see it

I turn away

I look tomorrow

I look today

to find my love

to find my heart

it's time to quit

it's time to start

so say hello

or say goodbye

I'll never quit

I'll always try
