Phillip Coffey - Just a Sniffle
No fitting day for picking rocks and impediments off the ridges.
Digging down through the frozen 'Tundra' to find them.
If britches needed mended sure Mom would add stitches.
"Doofus" always in and out with no 'earthly' rhyme or reason.
Lot of rambling thoughts and muttering from the 'ole Ridge Runner.'
Some of them with mirth to share -others it is necessary to stifle.
There can be blessings from all the experiences if properly carried
Through the furrows of anguished reality-most just a sniffle.
Picked a lot of rocks off ridge fields either tossing to the woods or loading on a wagon to be placed in perhaps a gully that had formed on the steep slopes. Dad bought an adjoining farm from his sister, Charity that joined our farm. Her husband Dallas had passed. One of the first things he and I did after he bought it was take a trailer hitched to a tractor load the rocks scattered exposed on the hillside and carry them to a gully to give pause to the erosion forming.
