Who would be here tomorrow?
Who would give you those extra sprinkles; the extra cream in your coffee?
NOT MR. BOYLE!
OK, so now what?
Maybe...I'll be a Used Car Salesman?!

Bars between our freedom.
The food was slop and all we drank was the warm water
to quench our thirst.
We longed for freedom. For the warmth of our bed.
The coziness of home.
It was so noisy here...
We shouted...Why did you Board us again?
Ok, so I'm leaving town again for a nice little get-away and I have to board my dogs!
What's a mother to do?
If you have a 55 of your own just let the gman know at Mr. Know-It-All first before you leave town too!

"You want to make some money?"
"Sure Mista...what do we have to do?"
"Just put these flyers on all the cars in the parking lot...
I'll meet you all back here."
We dashed and darted...and slapped hundreds of windsheilds.
"Hey, where is that guy?"

This weekend some of her ashes will be taken to be released at the beach in Myrtle Beach, SC.
She loved the beach, ocean and good times with friends and family. Since I can not be there to participate in the service I dedicate this 55 to her memory.
"Oh, Mickey you're so fine...Oh Mickey."
We sang this to you many times at the Girl's Parties.
Your smile was infectious. You were happy all the time;
or so it seemed...
You knew your life was to end soon.
After the senseless suffering, you are now at rest.
Ashes to scatter...we all smile.
If you have a 55 story please check in with the g-man at Mr. Know-It-All.

Nana Gibson sat on the porch cussing up a storm.
"Damn these pesky stink bugs. Why so many this year?"
Plague? She wondered.
She noticed the sheriff coming up the drive.
"Damn him too," she yelled.
His visit could cause her problems.
You see her "Damn" crop was almost ready
Damn stink bugs...

Lady In Waiting
I am bound to obey and serve...
to serve the Queen and the King, if need be.
To be useful in all that I do...
to be available at any given moment.
I am of certain virtue, wisdom and gentleness.
I am summoned to see the KING!
I enter, caustiously...
Into the foul smelling chamber.

Biggest Pig competition...
And surely win!

"Ground control to Major Tom"...
That song played in his head as he looked up at the night sky.
It was only a week ago that he saw something fly by with
He was not a believer in UFO's, but something was very
different about that craft...
Something was very different about today!

The breeze gently blew the flaps on the teepee...
My home for many months now,
as I made my way across the land.
In search of my family.
I was just a young boy from the Mohegan tribe when
new settlers came and took my parents away.
I look up to the sky...for answers!
Look up to the G-Man for having us do these 55's every Friday.
If you have one go on over to see Mr. KnowItAll and join in!!

Goodbye my warm friend, it was so nice to have you here for awhile.
Now it's time to close up shop...put away the shorts and tee shirts.
No more cool drinks to enjoy by the poolside.
No more smells of ocean air and suntan lotion.
Time to turn off the air-conditioner and open a window!
If you have a story to share...stop by the G-man at Mr. KnowItAll.

He was late...the train left the station an hour ago.
Damn - this was the story of his life.
Always the last to find out the news.
Always last to get the girl...
He sat on the bench and dropped his bag onto the ground.
He noticed a crumpled lottery ticket.
A train whistle blew...
If you have a 55 to share stop by the G-Man and let him know at Mr. KnowItAll.

There once live a dog who was a sheltie mix.
She was fortunate to live in the Detroit sticks...
Her owner looked mean on his Harley machine
but was a big cuddly bug!
One day she heard a song by the "Rolling Bones"
and barked with glee.
Until Harley Man turned it off at 3:00!!

You are so ever faithful. Spinning around me; changing my moods; making me howl.
Making me fall in love; making me write poetry and song.
I want to leave this place and fly.
And land on your peaceful surface.

It was an emergency situation -
More gin was needed for the party.
Daniel said he would make the booze run. He was very happy today.
The guests had arrived on time and were getting into the festive mood.
Daniel walked inside the Liquor store and headed for the gin aisle -
Loud gun shots were fired!

She didn't care too much for the city.
It was too noisy and she had to dodge dog shit with every step!
Her sister fit in perfectly!
She watched her sister carefully and realized
she hadn't changed. She was still a rude, condescending, and annoying Bitch!!

I think about him sometimes and wonder what he was like as a person, what his life would have been like, etc. I think about that drunken teen who hit him and what his life was like.
I live in an area where we have an influx of Hispanic immigrants and I see many young men riding bicycles every day and even sometimes in the rain. When I see them, I secretly say a little pray that they will be safe.
The tears mingled in with the rain drops.
He was only fifteen, new to this country and trying to do the right thing.
The drunken teen who hit and killed him would have to live with this memory for the rest of his life.
The families further shed tears as they lived with the memory!
