We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

JoJo missing you: repost from ebay

Posted Aug-25-08 13:38:14 PDT

I have had you on my mind for the last week. I really miss you and your friendship. I can not believe you have been gone for 8 months. I am just sending this song to you because I know you liked it. One of the few songs we could agree upon. LOL, I love and miss you. Please save a spot for me in heaven with lots of bees!

Yet, I Still Breathe
Posted Aug-25-08 13:38:14 PDT Updated Aug-25-08 14:01:03 PDT
Sometimes the breath stops in my chest
With such force time stills--until I hear my heartbeat
You’ve been gone awhile, with no returning
A simple thing can set off my tears
A buzzing bee, a whiff of smoke, straw condoms
A silent thief, stealing with vengeance
Dust mote memories; jagged scars left behind
Calloused your hardened hands, a mechanic
Blue collared and hard bent on raising hell
Walking the path less travelled
Peals of laughter; sun crinkles in time-marked face
Pain followed your every step
You were my strength; with valor
So much courage in a young heart
Some are born old leaving behind wisdom
Others are left wrung out by their fading light
Yet, I still breathe

Ode to Jo Jo

Mal...My Gran told me this, upon losing a dear friend: She has walked but a short few steps up that path and pauses to wait for you. When the time is right, you will continue the journey together. ((hugs)) *Goth*

She always made fun of me woofers. Because I would leave the paper on the sipping end of straws. Because of flies, keeps their bacteria from entering your mouth. She called them: STRAW CONDOMS.

:D at the straw condoms Mal. Have you had a virtual wake for JoJo Mal? Get drunker n drunk (not really just virtually) and tell every funny thing about JOJO that can bring a smile to your face. Conjure up the happy memories to hug the sad?

This was written by Bengal55. "...From Bengal55 "...when we 'loose' someone ; they are as close as before, form may be different , but love and care are of God, He never changes. i believe all stay within His hands and a circle - albeit one we do not now see is added to. Remember the good... it cannot ever leave , but grows as you pass along what you have learned from the encounter. Peace to you and your Spirit." Hugs.

Ann, Straw Condoms for all!
Posted Aug-25-08 15:56:23 PDT Updated Aug-25-08 16:21:29 PDT
What set off my sadness today was cleaning the desk I 'bought' from her. As I was preparing the piece of furniture for repair and refinishing. The thought of 'her finger prints' missing forever from the desk--just made me cry. grieve and feel sad.
'Straw Condoms' are the pieces of paper I left on drinking straws because I can't stomach the thought of flies on my straws. Too many years in the military in foreign countries.
Jo Jo used to tease the absolute crap out me because I was germ cautious. Thanks Ann, you made me smile and cry-but in a good way!

Hey Mal Bengal55 Wrote this "...when we 'loose' someone ; they are as close as before, form may be different , but love and care are of God, He never changes. i believe all stay within His hands and a circle - albeit one we do not now see is added to. Remember the good... it cannot ever leave , but grows as you pass along what you have learned from the encounter. Peace to you and your Spirit..." Hugs. Nothing wrong with crying. Especially not when you've lost someone so close. My email is currently out to lunch or would have emailed. I'm going to link your poem to my blog. It was just beautiful. Lots of folks thinking of you. Ann.
