Coyotes Howl in Fallbrook
A Bit of Doggerel by Sharon Radt and Pat Gressitt
The Spider and the Fly
By Sharon Radt
A spider spins its web in a corner of the shed He spins it round and round cautiously, without a sound Isn't that sly to catch a fly?
By Pat GressittI once hooked sailors with my cane When I was young and kind of vain But now that age impairs my gait I need my cane to ambulate
