TIGER LILIES

Sherry West, Sherry West Art@2019

A black-orange stripey head 

Is peeking out at me

From that tiger lily –

What do you think I see?

Each lovely curly petal 

Is a tuft of hair

Framing a little face

From which he does stare.

A cheerful tiny tiger

Perched upon a stem –

It’s not just one little fella –

It’s a whole patch of them!

Surprise!


Bored, I was foofing around on the internet and typed in the title of my book just to see what it might pull up, and THIS popped up!

I wasn’t aware that it would be up this early. I was under the impression it would be much closer to the ebook release date of July 2, 2019.

I’m not complaining! 😀

Tooty-Toot, Maisy!

Sherry West, SherryWestArt, 2019

When our daughter was small, we read her the Maisy the mouse books by Lucy Cousins.

In one of them, Maisy has a train.

Somewhere in the text it reads, “Tooty-toot, Maisy!” whenever the train blows it’s whistle.

So now, whenever someone is gassy, we all yell “Tooty-Toot, Maisy!”

Gabriel, a very typical seven-year-old boy, who just finished a bowl of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes, is sitting in the large Lazy-boy with his little brother Rainier.

From way over there, I heard the very distinct sounds that send little boys (and their siblings) into gales of laughter.

I told him, “I heard that!”

Gabriel then said, “Imagine if You made a sound like that!”

Tooty-toot, Maisy!
