I always try to put some humor into a tough circumstance...I almost ended this with ...Daddy became a circus freak...and he was a strange one...but thought better of it..this is a true story but I won't tell you who it's about unless no one guesses...I think I made this very easy....This young woman has overcome much and now lives in my hometown with her husband and middle son lived across the street from them...Kacee

Fragile Flower
I can almost imagine the child telling this story. There's a whimsy about daddy running away with the circus that contrasts to the harsh reality of a centerfold mom. As usual it's the no-nonsense short, bitter-sweet and to the point humour that makes it. Superb.

Tiptoe through the tulips
I thought of that song when I read this poem, but I'll admit I knew nothing more of Tiny Tim than the connection to that song. Wonderful poem, Kacee, as usual.

it matters how a flower grows
Made me think of a young lady I met this summer, many called her Sailor because of her manors. She was a very young Prostitute who had taken up with an old man just to survive. She had no education to say of neither work history. Im thinking of going back to that street, to tell her again I love her and GOD really does.... Your poem touched me gently.. thanks MS. Kitty, God bless you for not shunning her. You're a true honor to all women.You are on my admirable list for more than your writing ablity.

CoCo Darlin',
Anything good I am has nothing to do with me...all honor and glory goes to God...I do the praying and God does the answering...I'm so very glad He hears my prayers...All though the Bible God has used many people we wouldn't think He would use...Rahab (the prostitute for example) who was also in the family tree of I guess He can use a cranky old grandma and a Sailor, tell her that when you next see her...I'll say a special prayer for her...and you...Kacee
