Sweetest Day started out as a sweet day in 1916 as Candy Day.
I’d like to celebrate this day with a poem.
There once was a lass
With a lot of brass
When she met a lad
Who looked so sad
“Sweet candy is what you need,” said she
Did she give him chocolate to make him happy?
No, ‘twas something sweeter to take him to bliss
A big, yummy, sweet, delicious kiss!
I remember Christmas in Kentucky when I was a kid.
We lived in a lot of states, but I loved Kentucky with its beautiful woods and small towns like Versailles and Corbin.
And Kissing Creek.
Oh, but wait . . .
Kissing Creek exists only in “The Christmas Piano Tree.”
It’s my manuscript on submission to Hallmark Publishing . . .
It’s a homespun small town where a pretty young war widow lives with her little girl. When an old Army buddy of her late husband shows up looking for a hot meal, she’s intrigued . . . he’s homeless, but he has a secret that will change her life!
Keep you posted . . .
PS — actually I have two Christmas books on submission to Hallmark!
Eye candy for today . . .
The way to a rogue’s heart is through his…
Well, not exactly. At least for this handsome, dashing rogue from Rome.
Find out how a pretty signorina catches his eye on National Pasta Day!
(my poem as written on the graphic)
The ROGUE from ROME
There once was a rogue from Rome
Who wandered far from home
A pretty wife to find
To make pasta divine
Such was his desire
To light his fire
But the girl who caught his eye
Couldn’t cook or bake or fry
What she could do I don’t have to tell you
Needless to say They went out for pasta every day
And made passionate love all through the night
Our virile rogue al dente when out went the light…

She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
