Saturday Blues

It is that day.
The seven day week is past
Back to the beginning again
to Saturday blues.
Beans and wieners
A late trip to town
Grocery sacks, gas tank fill
and strawberry pop.
For Saturday’s pay


  1. Saturday blues are THE best…for me today was a day of blue jeans and denim shirt, blueberries, blue hydrangeas, baked beans (with grilled salmon), B. B. King and Etta James! 🙂
    Love your poem, J! 🙂 Those are great Saturday memories from your childhood! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂

    • You can’t go wrong with Etta!! 🙂 I feel all wrapped up in clover just talking about her ! 😀 We will miss both of those artists, so glad we will always have their recordings. 😐
      There is an awful lot of blue going on at your house, You should have had blue eggs and ham and of course the Blue Man Group would have been fun, too!! 😀 I just hate taking off a denim shirt at the end of day, I feel so good wearing them. 😀

      Yep, both good and some bad memories. It is funny how some things we bring up take us back to childhood. Just add “strawberry pop” and everyone timestamps it childhood. A lot of the phrase is “pop”, you have to be over 40 to remember soda being called “pop” and I haven’t seen plain “strawberry” NeHi in years, I think its RC Cola now. 🙂
      Sounds like you are having a great WeeeK-Kend!!
