Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 388: ‘Little House in the Forest’ A Christmas Poem: ‘Romance for the Holidays’ by Rg2 (29) Vol. VI

 

“Little House in the Forest”

My grandpops said this before he passed,
“Don’t lose your values amid this material oasis”
Of all the riches a man’s ingenuity can amass
All the better he operates on a simplistic basis:

Endeavor, give, take not a day for granted
You will fall down but you will also fall up,
Each failure propels us to a higher ground
Each lesson a currency that filleth life’s cup

Woman, I’ve been busy learning and paper-earning
But stomach-turning was my life void of you,
From the meaning of Christmas I’ve tried not to stray
And for this one I’m determined to remain true

My values of a simple, honest life in written works
There’s a little house in the forest with a blazing fire,
Filled with hickory scents and sweet peppermints
I haven’t much to offer but if your heart’s desire

Is a fortress of protection from the frosty elements
And slow kettled-cooked chicken sausage winter soup,
Caramel hot cocoa with Hershey’s kisses-melted hints
Vintage black-and-white Scrooge movies on video loop

The thickest, softest sweater-socks to cover your feet
A bundle of handstitched oversize quilted throws,
To bury ourselves under so doesn’t escape the heat
Your head on my shoulder? Indeed, that’s where it goes

As others wait for Christmas, I say we make our Christmas
Will you allow me to share with you my poetic art?
Close your eyes and listen to my cadence in rhyme
If this is a holiday movie then you’re the best part

I haven’t much to offer that the richer man can’t match
Only a little house in the forest and a one-horse sleigh,
But if a home full of love for the holidays is your wish
Allow me the gift of your heart on Pamper-Her-Friday

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 387: ‘Faith for the Holidays’ A Poem: ‘Romance for the Holidays’ by Rg2 (28) Vol. VI

 

“Faith for the Holidays”

I realize it’s easy to give up on romance
In the midst of the current political climate,
As biblical predictions seemingly unfold
My savior’s coming—I won’t dare try to time it

I just know… I feel something within and without
Deep down, woman, admit it, might you, too?
Could it be that we’ve lost faith in one another
In a house divided, the winners are so few

What’s worse? A heart divided into two, three
Fragments of what once was a precious whole,
Scattered are they beneath the ornate tree
Deserving we are of a stocking’s lump of coal

A soul handled wrong for so very long
Loses its content becomes a soul on ice,
Love, I want not my spirit to lose its song
Some soul-searching for the holidays will suffice

It to say I need a friend who deeply cares
To help me discover what Christmas truly means,
The jewels and the gadgets and all the pretty wares
Do they have a place in our nativity scenes?

Or is it about a simple brown-paper package
Butterfly-tied with a simple, soft string,
Inside, a thin tome of romantic scripture
Written just for you—good tidings I bring

We’ll un-layer this holiday to its bare essence
Hum with me some carols and spiritual hymns,
The kettle’s filled with hot cinnamon apple cider
The Noble Fir is eager for us to dress its limbs

I realize it’s easy to give up on romance
But I refuse to allow you to feel such a way,
Discover with me the true meaning of Christmas
It’s beginning to look a lot like … Pamper-Her-Friday.

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® Gift Giveaway (2) Arrives for the Holidays

Los Angeles, 11-24-17—When a stylish woman walks into a peopled room, she takes it. It’s hers without having said a word. When a stylish woman walks into a room with a stylish tote bag, she doesn’t have to take the room. It gives itself to her immediately. She owns every eye in the house.

The pictured handbag, elegant scarf included, is begging for a stylish owner to show it off for the holidays and beyond—compliments of Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2®. Don’t you deserve to be pampered this holiday season? Of course you do.

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 386: ‘Autumn Weekend of Celibacy’ A Love Letter: ‘A Romance in Autumn’ Creatives by Rg2 (55)

 

“Autumn Weekend of Celibacy”

 

Dear Princess,

Will you come with me this weekend?

My great-Aunt Gracie and -Uncle Russell’s farm in the old country has been auctioned. Apparently the Mennonites made the highest offer, unbeknownst to the family. They’d been eying the property for years, perhaps waiting for our grands to tire of the responsibility of it all.

The bid fell through, however. Call it providence. Or luck.

I call it grace.

I’m going up this weekend to survey the acreage. I want to take in every square foot of the land and the structures—I can’t think of a better time than autumn. And I can’t think of a better autumn companion with whom to share the experience than you.

My father, after marrying my mother and leaving the States, made it a Sunday family tradition to spend the day at the farm. I believe he understood the soul and the creative mind needed a rural, pastoral escape from the city’s urban restlessness. He didn’t want to stray too far from his own roots as well.

The SUV is gassed up, multiple blankets are in the stow, and I’ve packed plenty of foodstuffs. A General Store and diner sit about a half-mile away along the route. We’ll stop for whatever we’ve forgotten. There’s plenty of wood source on the property for the fireplace.

Please don’t interpret my inviting you for a couple days with me as anything other than a safe, warm, soothing retreat into the heart of autumn. A mutual soul getaway both you and I could truly appreciate right about now.

Celibacy is so underrated.

If you’d prefer to keep me at arm’s length, by all means, I’ll gently and gracefully oblige. Your want is certainly my honor.

If, however, you find yourself curious about the safety of the interior of my arms or the headrest appeal of my broad shoulders, I’ll encourage you the trial.

As the fire blazes and the soft music soothes and the rustling leaves detach themselves reluctantly from the wind-swept maple trees, my arms may just be your chosen place of refuge.

And I’ll simply breathe on you through the night.

On Pamper-Her-Friday.

Will you come?

The very thought of you,
Rg2

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 385: ‘From BET to Agatha Christie’ A Love Letter: ‘A Romance in Autumn’ Creatives by Rg2 (54)

 

“From BET to Agatha Christie”

My Angel,

There are two vital investments a man can make that will determine the success of his life: His future and his woman. Failure at either one is equally costly.

Especially in autumn.

I’m upping my investment in both you and me for Pamper-Her-Friday.

Ever wondered what happened to the founder of Black Entertainment Television, Bob Johnson, after he sold BET to Viacom, not to mention his Charlotte Bobcats to Michael Jordan—both at handsome profits?

Apparently RLJ Entertainment is his next billion-dollar idea. RLJE is a premium digital subscription TV service that distributes and licenses entertainment content. Its branded channels include Acorn TV (British TV), Acacia, and Urban Movie Channel (UMC).

The sweet spot in this venture—and what I consider a stroke of genius on Johnson’s part—is his ownership of 64% of Agatha Christie Limited, which manages the literary and media rights to the famous and beloved English crime novelist. Christie’s work is timeless and still enjoys global acclaim.

This transaction by Mr. Johnson reminds me of Michael Jackson’s genius when he purchased the Beatles’ music library. Both investments have only increased in value over time—and will continue to do so.

Autumn is a great time for new investments, as the season changes and augurs new ideas, fireplace-on-the-weekend settings, cappuccinos at poetry readings, hand-holding with that special someone…

…and a little pre-holiday gift-giving that sets a beautiful fall tone: In this case, a sizeable tranche of RLJE stocks to add to your equity assets. At under $5 per, they’re a steal considering the company’s only five years old. Johnson’s just getting started.

And so are we.

It’s a three-day Pamper-Her-Friday weekend and I want you with me every minute of it. Our flight leaves in two hours, angel. Lake Autumn awaits us.

You ready?

Tenderly,

Rg2

Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 384: ‘Bitcoin vs. Icahn Enterprises’ A Love Letter: ‘A Romance in Autumn’ Creatives by Rg2 (53)

 

My Angel,

With fall having finally set in here in the Inland Valley, the eagerness with which I intend to pamper you with autumn affection is brimming.

Let’s start this evening, shall we?

The stock market has entered frothy territory and I’ve elected to liquidate several holdings before the correction breaks. Ready cash will be crucial going forward as market opportunities arise after the sell-off.

The Bitcoin and Ethereum mania is highly enticing, even more now that Amazon is wading in. I’ve elected to cash out, however, as I research further. My instincts continue to signal caution. They’ve never let me down. An investor has never lost money by selling too quickly at a profit.

One investment that has been stellar for me, among the others, is Icahn Enterprises. Named for the legendary corporate activist, IEP pays an enviable $1.50 per/share dividend and the next payout should be announced in a few days. I’m allocating more funds to shares as they continue to show impressive earnings, especially in this most recent quarter.

So where does the pampering come in?

Well, the new iPhone X is en route. The destination? Your doorstep. By drone.

More importantly, a block of Apple shares has been added to your brokerage account. I advise you to hold onto them past $200+ per—they’re well on their way. In fact, don’t sell. They’ll double in due time.

For me? Well, I’m in no hurry to upgrade my cheap Android. The financial reports I read daily don’t require a high-tech handset. As long as we can text one another in autumn, I’m good.

In fact, while you get your new phone activated, here’s a “pre-text”—traditional love letter style:

Happy Pamper-Her-Friday, angel.

I look forward to seeing you.

Yours in Autumn,
Rg2
