In Memory Of Junie Myers

She always found a way,

even on the darkest of dark roads,

to bring light, love, and laughter

to the journey. She walked with us

through really rough patches

when the winds were howling

and lightning filled the air.

And when the sun broke through

or the full moon rose,

she was there too – sharing

a funny dog video or an inspiring tale.

It’s hard to imagine walking

without her by our side,

diet coke in hand.


A Typical Exchange

Knox: “Whimper, whimper, whimper.

Me:     “What is it, Boy?”

Knox: “Dog Park, Dog Park, Dog Park.”

Me:     “Not right now, Buddy.”

Knox: “Whimper, whimper, whimper.”

Me:     “It’s not all about you, my friend.”

Knox: “Whimper, whimper, whimper,  But, whimper, whimper, whimper,  it should be.”

Me:     “Give me a break.”

Knox: “Woof. That’s my point. Dog Park, Dog Park, Dog Park. Break, Break, Break.”

Me:    “Not now. Not now. Not Now.”

Knox: (Deep sigh. Shakes head. Lies down. Soft moan. “When will she ever learn? When?”







Knox And The Crow

Knox watched and listened

to the scolding crow,

then glancing at the birdseed,

he wagged his tail,

shook his head.

” I don’t even like that stuff,” he said.



For Joe and Kamala

untangling the web

May you have courage and strength,

because you will need it.

May you have energy and good health,

because you will need it.

May your spouses be strong

because you will need them to be.

May your advisors tell you the truth,

not what they think you want to hear.

May you listen to all sides

before making decisions.

May you work well together

and respect each other.

May you form good relationships

on both sides of the aisle.

May you reunite this country

because you will have to.

May you surpass your own expectations

because the future of our country is in your hands.
