If ye be angry,... let not the sun go down upon your wrath. Ephesians 4:26

She, a sweet rose, defenseless
Standing in her blue vase
Watched the slugger fests.....
Had seen how anger escalates
Not by bees with boxing fists....
Nor butterflies who had upsets~
But tween' two mad hornets:)
Poetry by me, AJP

As I was going through my archival pictures from 2005, to get rid of some and keep others.. I found this one of the two fighting hornets that my late father carved out of wood in his younger days...

My late mother kept the "mad hornets" with her at her apartment where she moved to when the home place was sold and it also went with her to the rest home until she died .....I appreciate the intricate artistry, the humor and imagination that went into this carving...and I am glad that I photographed it at Mom's apartment where it held a special place on her TV. This picture of course is meaningful, maybe only to me, but a keeper:)

    Your father was an excellent carver. So glad that you got this, it is a keeper that is meaningful for you. Do you know what ever became of the "mad Hornets"?

    I think the mad hornets may have been left at the rest home where they sat on the top of my mother's piano which she was allowed to take with her .. After she passed away her piano was donated to the rest home for their chapel ... The hornets by that time was falling apart from being handled so much by the residents ....I am glad I have this memory preserved.
