Joining Alphabe-Thursday, letter Q
Visited Long Island this past year and enjoyed scurrying around the small community of East Quogue, NY (pronounced kwog).
The Long Island Exchange site gives a short background of the original inhabitants:
The Native Indian name of Quaguanantuck was shortened and changed to Quogue soon after the lands that form the town of today, changed hands and became European settler territory. Western civilization has never looked back since in this town that upholds sturdy values and the charm of colonized estates.
Come on Spring, I’m ready!
Can’t help during this Lenten season to focus on a spiritual theme….A poem for your perusal:

Reminiscing over this past September’s wedding events♫♪
and Saturday Snapshot
Over the river and through the woods…
Oh, how that Jeep endured the many broods!
Family, friends, through all types of moods.
Two Hundred acres of timbered trails
Hauling fire wood, camping gear, through the dales,
Exploring, fording streams, passing all the trials.
Until, bumperless, with holed floor boards, no window shield,
Battery burned out, no longer able to pull sleds over the field,
Was put into storage, no power to wield.
Dilapidated, de-palpitated, unable to come to life…
Hauled away, stored at my brother’s and his wife.
Then, a daughter’s engagement, and an idea come to life.
Who knew my brother had the skill?
T’was up to the last minute for him to fill the bill.
Success! It runs again to escort the Bride… Doesn’t it look swell!!!
FYI: The Forever stamp goes up a penny Jan. 27….stock up now!

The poem is formed to have cow horns in its midst…hope it doesn’t take away from the lyrics♫
