Caffeine Straight


When eating out, I usually
like liquid while waiting for
my food to arrive. Coffee is
automatically poured in
your cup and I usually cover
the cup with my hand, sig-
naling to the waitress —"No
thank you."
I was asked by the polite
waitress what I desired to
drink. I replied, "Tea,
please." Waitress asked me,
"Lemon or cream?" Answer-
ing her question, I merely
said, "Caffeine straight.".
I shall not forget the look
on the young lady's face!


The young mother and her daughter
Appear in the Sanctuary
With charm and respectfulness,
Strolling towards their seats.
Then they unite their souls with the spirit
Which prevails in the Sanctuary,
Each one with a different feeling and interpretation
Of the meaningful words in the prayer book.
Heavenly motivated by our Prophets and scholars,
Their feeling towards each other
Is in constant communication through the angels above.
The bond of motherhood and her offspring
Is under the providence of the Almighty.
They pray
And listen to the sermon given by the Rabbi,
And the melodic sound of the cantor and the congregants.
A feeling of belonging to a People,
A heritage with old traditions and ideals
For a Messianic era for mankind at large,
And the well-being of the People of Israel,
Are rooted in their sub-conscious mind and soul
As far back as to Moses and the patriarch Abraham.

Love Is King


Spilled Milk


Five-year-old Daniel was
at the airport waiting to see
if Grandpa and Grandma
would get on the plane dur-
ing the strike. He became
good friends with a three
year-old girl, her mother
and grandmother. The little
girl spilled her milk and was
scolded by Grandma.
Daniel put his hands on
his hips, looked her in the
eye and said,"You shouldn't
scold her. She is only three
years old. Didn't you spill
milk when you were three?"
The girl's grandma an-
swered, "N6, I never spilled
my milk. Did you spill yours
when you were three?" "Yes,
I spilled it at three and now I
am five — I still spill it."
P.S. Grandpa and
Grandma did get on the
plane after a wait of three
hours. Grandpa, who is
much past three years old,
spilled a cup of hot coffee on
Grandma's lap!


The tiniest apartment
Is a palace all its own
When there's a regal atmosphere
In a place that love calls home.
Where warmth and friendliness hold court,
With happiness well enthroned,
Laughter is the princely greeting
In the place that love calls home.
Though the lure of travel
Beckons these royal folks to roam,
No other castle will be comparable
To the place that love calls home.

The long hard winter is past,
Gone are the piles of dirty snow;
Suddenly the grass is green again.
I walk through the gate to view
the splendor of the magnolia tree in full bloom,
Its blossoms white centered with faint lavender,
And I walk on.
On every hand May has spread her bounty before me,
The pink blossoms of the crabapple trees,
The white blossoms of the pear trees,
The red blossoming trees,
The tulips — golden, orange, red or lavender,
bordering the houses,
And the robins busily gathering their nestling materials.
Oh, what a beautiful world it is!
