The Oregon Trail


images (1)imagesOne night long ago on the Oregon Trail,

Black-eyed Pete and Yellow-shirt Dale

Sat down to rest by the fire-light,

When Pete started up a terrible fight!

“Them beans were like bullets!

What’s wrong with you Dale?!

You only gotta throw ’em

In the old bean pail!

Cover ’em with water and let ’em soak,

Then cook ’em up enough

So we don’t both croak!

Are you sure you didn’t cook up a bag of ammo?”

A shot rang out in the night!

About Yvonne's Musings

Being the second of eight kids born in 11 years to my busy parents ultimately was a real advantage to me. I learned very early that if you wanted to be heard amidst all the noise the best way to accomplish it was to write your thoughts down. My first post to my mother," i hate skool. i cried at skool tooday!" was stuck with ABC chewing gum to the lid of the diaper pail, where I was certain that she would find it. Her attention quickly elicited in me a love of writing that has been life long. Seeking a wider audience I have decided to now, decades later, blog. Happy reading Mom! This is for you!
