Woohoo! Good afternoon people, and do I have good news from the home front! My grandson came to spend the day with me and helped me clean a couple of things:
1. My laptop
2. My floors
That may not seem a big deal to anyone else, but it makes my heat sing! Only the heart, you wouldn’t want to hear the real thing, believe me. Opening the blinds this morning I noticed my sparkling clean floors, gorgeous….after snow, mud and slush tracked over them by the wheels lately, those gray trails have disappeared. Yum!
Cleaning is not my strong point
Being alone, keep a pretty neat joint
Now some appliances can be annoying
Like vacuum cords always cloying
Around or under my chair’s wheels
So irritating, you know how it feels
I’ve threatened to throw it through the roof
But into a tree? What a goof!
Everyone remarked her tastes were lavish
She hoped they were above average
Said, “In society you have to have leverage”
Spending for “looks” she didn’t like steerage
The uppity noses of neighbors with peerage
She tried to impress with expenditures growing
All the while her bank account lowering
Husband responded, “your attempts have been avid,
But for acceptance, they’re certainly not valid.”
“The Music Man” by Meredith Wilson (1962) is one of my favorite movies. This scene is all about talk.
Shining bright, you light the way
For lost ships that have gone astray
Beacon of hope, guide without delay
To get their bearings towards the quay.
I’m all for knights in suits of armor
Admiring princesses, expressing ardor
Old time romance as pictured in
The movies with Bogart and Flynn
Who said fervent words, but so tender
It’s a whole new concept with today’s gender
Moon and croon and meet in the garden
Turns into quick texts of words more hardened
It’s less about love and more about sex
No longer asking for a doorstep peck
But a full on romp and not just in the hay
Where is the romance, is there any today?
Is it just “get it on” without delay?
Guess I’m just too old for this day.
Thinking with too much irony
Should just “go along” in harmony.
