[6-16-2009 Update Insert: Most of what is in this space is now moot. I found out what I was doing wrong and have reinstated Archives and Labels searches. They do work. However, in certain cases you may prefer Labels to Archives. Example: 1976 Today begins in November of 2006 and concludes in December of 2006, but there are other related posts in other months. Note: Labels only shows 20 posts at a time. There are 21 hubs, making 21 (which is for 1976 Today) an older hub.] ********************************* to my online poems and song lyrics using Archives. Use hubs for finding archival locations but do not link through them. Originally an AOL Journal, where the archive system was nothing like the system here, this blog was migrated from there to here in October of 2008. Today (Memorial/Veteran's Day, May 25, 2009) I discovered a glitch when trying to use a Blogger archive. Now, it may be template-related, but I am unable to return to S M or to the dashboard once I am in the Archives. Therefore, I've decided on this approach: a month-by-month post guide. The sw you see in the codes here stood for Salchert's Weblog when I began it in November of 2006. It later became Sprintedon Hollow. AOL provided what were called entry numbers, but they weren't consistent, and they didn't begin at the first cardinal number. That is why the numbers after "sw" came to be part of a post's code. ************** Here then is the month-by-month post guide: *2006* November: 00001 through 00046 - December: 00047 through 00056 -- *2007* January: 00057 through 00137 - February: 00138 through 00241 - March: 00242 through 00295 - April: 00296 through 00356 - May: 00357 through 00437 - June: 00438 through 00527 - July: 00528 though 00550 - August: 00551 through 00610 - September: 00611 through 00625 - October: 00626 through 00657 - November: 00658 through 00729 - December: 00730 through 00762 -- *2008* January: 00763 through 00791 - February: 00792 through 00826 - March: 00827 through 00849 - April: 00850 through 00872 - May: 00873 through 00907 - June: 00908 through 00931 - July: 00932 through 00955 - August: 00956 through 00993 - September 00994 through 01005 - October: 01006 through 01007 - November: 01008 through 01011 - December: 01012 through 01014 -- *2009* January: 01015 through 01021 - February: 01022 through 01028 - March: 01029 through 01033 - April: 01034 through 01036 - May: 01037 through 01044 - ******************************************************* 1976 Today: 2006/11 and 2006/12 -- Rooted Sky 2007: 2007/01/00063rsc -- Postures 2007: 2007/01/sw00137pc -- Sets: 2007/02/sw00215sgc -- Venturings: 2007/03/00216vc -- The Undulant Trees: 2007/03/00266utc -- This Day's Poem: 2007/03/00267tdpc -- Autobio: 2007/04/sw00316ac -- Fond du Lac: 2007/04/00339fdl -- Justan Tamarind: 2007/05/sw00366jtc -- Prayers in December: 2007/05/sw00393pindc -- June 2007: 2007/06/sw00440junec -- Seminary: 2007/07/sw00533semc -- Scatterings: 2008/08/00958sc ** Song Lyrics: 2008/02/sw00797slc ********** 2009-06-02: Have set S M to show 200 posts per page.

The Undulant Trees [ Beneath this note are two poems concerning incidents which took place several years apart, and about which I am only partially aware. Both sets of incidents were in mobile home (mo-ho) communities. To my knowledge the events in the first mo-ho community do not relate to those in the second. ] Mo-Ho Community 1's Story That quiet day as I walked toward where the mailboxes were/ on the patio of the long brown mo-ho two young tall blacks held a shorter black upside down. At the patio's far end, seated on a chair, was a white teen who'd been a neighbor of ours. Though I didn't count them, there were in all about seven young blacks, one of whom was the group's sentinel; but no one else was in sight, and I was just passing by. ~ Mo-Ho Community 2's Story 1 On a day I had a need to speak with the manager/ two tall slender guys, one with a basketball, were waiting for something near the office. The basketball guy seemed half black half white, and the other seemed nearly all white. I learned they were going to be living in a mo-ho toward the end of the street which ran north from the mailboxes. 2 A month or so later, just after I'd gotten my mail, a teen black whom I had once met and briefly spoken with and came to know/ some things about, was heading to the corner mo-ho across the street where a friend of his lived. He paid no attention to me; and I, curious, decided to delay my walk home. Once he'd/ alerted his friend, he quickly strode back to his place, which was one or two mo-ho's north of where the new guys lived. As he turned off the street into his yard, he lowered his jeans so far they nearly slid to the bottoms of his yellow/brown boxers. Then I saw that block distant another young black/ facing me. For a moment we scanned each other, and I made/ no move toward him. 3 About two months (or so it seemed) after that/ while I was again conversing with the manager, I was told the two young guys had moved,  and had defaulted on their lease. It was either that day or several days later Irevealed to the manager what I suspected had occurred, though I knew what I knew proved nothing. 4 What I did know was that the central figure was a student at a high school I had twice been in because of tropical storms. One evening, while online, I went to that school's web site and did some fruitless searching, but found an error on its home page. Early/ on another day when I was by the office/ I had a chance to speak with that school's student about whom I knew some things, and I did speak with him. I told him of the error on his school's home page. - Little Pieces Brian A. J. Salchert
