RENT RAISING

RENT RAISING

 

Medical expenses we had spent

Didn’t help this year lower rent,

Welcomed my payday raise

Because of it, rent went up today!

Daria’s profuse apologies

Could not change the economic breeze…

Things going up is the way of life,

Like housing for me and the wife!

NEW CAT NOT HERE

NEW CAT NOT HERE

Thinking of HANDS ON BOWIE,
Reblogged a few posts ago…
We were hoping to adopt one by New Year’s
But the cat did not show.

My wife still wants one
But I’m beginning to deal…
With one less chore in the morning,
Providing that one less meal.

Sure, I still want a furry,
Warm cat to love and to hug…
It should be time to finish the chore
Of cleaning the spots in the rug.

Our medical bills are mounting,
We should try to repay a few…
Not having vet bills to cover
Counters the presence of “mew”.

My wife may not believe I’m saying
We should wait just a little time more…
A friend of ours runs a shelter,
Where a a pair of cat eyes may implore!

HANDS ON (MR.) BOWIE is an excellent blog focussed on one fat (?) furry feline from Sweden. No, not a blonde…never saw a picture of Herman, who writes (!) it with/for Mr. Bowie!

PREPARING FOR CHRISTMAS

PREPARING FOR CHRISTMAS

 

An older couple so glowing

Is trying to keep things going…

The budget has crashed,

They’ve run out of cash

While medical debts keep growing!

They’d like to stay on the Net,

But savings are hard to get….

Perhaps a download

Of games can bode,

Better for their time, I’d bet.

And they if the Net must leave,

They’ll have some tension reprieve…

A little more set

Without the Net,

To keep more of what income they receive.

The matter is hanging fire,

Non-payment keeps them off the wire…

Will phone and TV

Be enough–they’ll see,

When enough money they can acquire.
