1976 meant the bicentennial and marriage. We drove to Disney World without a second thought – nor preparation for that matter – and parked at the Contemporary Resort. In we strolled. “Do you have a reservation?” “No.” “OK, we have a room…” Yes, we were able to get a room, paid $50, left our suitcases in elegance and caught the monorail to a world of wonder. At night there were spectacular fireworks to celebrate becoming… well, other stuff too.
I don’t think you can just pull in to Disney World nowadays and find a room without a reservation… for only 50 bucks.
Prompt: “…looking back, I remember…”
What do you remember about 1976?

With a little effort I wonder if I could do that. Basketball. My mom played in high school. At 5’4”, well, 5’3 & ¾” she was a star. I’m taller, 5’4 & ¼” would I do better… by ½ inch? Hmm. I watch the toddlers and preschoolers run around the gym and they ask “Miss Margaret can you make a basket?” I step back and give it a shot. In! Should I go a second time? In! I wonder…
Is there Olympic basketball? Maybe. Don’t know. Can’t stand to watch it. Too dull kind of like golf. There’s a sleeper.

Prompt: “…With a little effort I wonder if could do that?…”
Well Muse you won’t let me sleep
So there’s something to write
I’ve dragons to breed and eggs to hatch
Battles to compete
Food to grow and then to collect
Please not tonight
There is gold to gather and store
Any Scrooge would envy
Platinum too from an ancient world
Passing through time a cinch
Perhaps I’ll train for another skill
Just so much to do in a day
Up late I cannot stay
Was this the secret you will I reveal
Here comes a yawn
Now another one
Let me fade
Now they close
Sleep tight I will
