Wind Bag

Carpe Diem #929 wind bag


My MIL was a wise woman.  She was quite, conservative and yet liberal.  She saved the lint from her dryer and rolled into balls.  At the end of a month she would figure what each dryer load cost from the extra electric usage.  When asked about the Supreme Court's ruling on abortions being a choice, she approved, to my utter surprise.  Mom A. had a standard by which she judged folks.  Quite folks were nice, talkative folks were windy, accented with a bit of a frown.

silence heals
scars on earth's skin
nature reclaims
