high school reunion
the years creep up
~ wrinkles too
some have improved with age
others ~ name tags required
any resemblance
coincidental

bucket list checked off
barkeeps secret recipe
pina coladas yum-mo

singing
the pina colada
song
all the way home
one in each hand

I made a pilgrimage to back in 1968…
heard they made the best pina coladas.
.
My friend Kathy and I wanted the recipe
our hubby’s didn’t let us go alone!..
She talked the bartender into making a batch from fresh ingredients
… newly opened cans… so we could eye ball the amount.
As he made them,
she checked the ingredients,
and I wrote them down. Johnny Carson.\

The bartender was specific to the DOLE pineapple chunks,
Barcardi white Rum
and CoCo Lopez creamed coconut
(that’s an easy one.. it was the only one ! )

I saw a version that froze the pineapple chunks
(they used crushed) with a sparing of crushed ice

two doors down top of tree
two blue jays calling

fence is up
pasture ready
solstice
missed the new barn
bigger than a bread box
.
.
The barn is on the right…
I asked where the horses
were going to be kept nice and cozy warm
knowing there’d be a place.
I took the photo from beside the car …
the building faces the driveway
so it HAD to be there
on my arrival half hour before !

a “second chance” photo… she had
perched on a limb outside the library window..
I was so stunned to see her so close, and lost
the moment to take the photo… I thought the
image in my mind was a mirage since I could not
find another photo of such a sweet face on an
eagle. She flew to the other side of the pond
and took this photo.
