There is no whether or not
To answer a cell phone while driving
Especially if you do not have a
Hands free device – just don’t.
Be smart with your smart or
Not so smart traveling phone…
Remember when they didn’t exist?

The expected “Salad Run” call –

Aka Tex Burns
When interviewed not long before his death, he was asked which among his
books he liked best. His reply:
I like them all. There’s bits and pieces of books that I think are good. I never
rework a book. I’d rather use what I’ve learned on the next one, and make it
a little bit better. The worst of it is that I’m no longer a kid and I’m just now
getting to be a good writer. Just now.

given language, originally coined by analogy with the phoneme of spoken
languages. A grapheme may or may not carry meaning by itself, and may or
may not correspond to a single phoneme (… any of the perceptually distinct
units of sound in a specified language that distinguish one word from another,
for example p, b, d, and t in the English words pad, pat, bad, and bat.

Whose last names start with the alphabet
Or at least have those ‘tricky letters’ –
U, Q, X & Y in them)

Odd winter here, first too warm, now too cold;

into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.
