DRIVEL:  to talk stupidly and carelessly; to utter in an infantile or imbecilic way;  to waste or fritter in a childish fashion; nonsense

DRIBBLE: to fall or flow in drops or in a thin, intermittent stream: trickle; to let saliva trickle from a corner of the mouth; a tiny or insignificant bit or quantity

DIBBLE:  a small hand instrument used to make holes in the ground for plants, seeds, or bulbs.

Never dribble on your dibble when you’re making holes for plants

If you dribble on your dibble you might be drowning ants;

Then you’ll have to tell the story that you dribbled on your dibble,

And all your friends will tell you that they’re tired of your drivel!

(You may think that this is drivel,

and I’d find it hard to quibble.)

The White Azalea

We first moved into this house in 1988 (my first thought was “1888,” but I just feel a little old today). 🙂  As we were moving from Woodcliff Lake to a lovely street in Park Ridge, in one of the hottest Julys ever, I kept stopping by the new house just to look at this azalea.  It was so full and pretty – it looked like a giant wedding bouquet.

Now it’s gotten older and a little less full, and I’ve gotten older and a lot more full.  I still love this azalea.

Let’s see:  if I had moved here in 1888, I would be about 152 years old now.  (And you don’t have to do the math!)
