Hark! What sight from yonder window breaks?

You watch to the east,
I'll watch to the west.
And when you see her,
bark first.

If a jet plane takes off
from the Sea-Tac airport,
And flies o'er the Narrows
Then turns to the north,

When the mini bag of pretzels
Is gone 'fore you know,
And way down below
Lies some unknown foreign land,

When a white cotton quilt
Blankets the earth,
And your butt's sore from sitting
Till you can't hurt anymore,

When the crossword is finished
But for fourteen across,
And the rivers of ice
Point the plane the right way,

When the welcome bear is smiling,

And you're greeted at the door,

And the parrot's mighty pissed off,

Then the dame of Muskeg Manor is home....


  1. and I want to hear e-v-e-r-y word about your adventure!

  2. WooHoo. Welcome back, we've missed ya....and what Beth said.

  3. You must be chomping at the bit to get all of your adventures on paper. I know I'm rearing back and bucking in anticipation. ( I'm still under the influence of a western I just finished reading.)
