NOW THERE’S HOPE!

NOW THERE’S HOPE!

With frantic but firm intent,

He looked for the Heaven-sent…

Got his ride

To groceries supplied,

And found a car to rent.

Thus he will be freed

to respond closely to need..

Find a legit

Car that will fit,

His wife and he more guaranteed!

OLDER MEN NOTICE!

OLDER MEN NOTICE!

He was shopping late last night

When he saw an intriguing sight…

But he went ’round

From when she was bound,

The encounter didn’t seem right.

He oft has to lower his head,

Before he’s caught dead…

To rights for looking,

Apparently cooking

Up some sort of thought warranted.

He’s glad he doesn’t say anything,

But just observes modeling…

Women still look good,

He knows that he should

Avoid any fool wandering!

THURSDAY THOUGHTS

THURSDAY THOUGHTS

 

Making a list and checking it twice,

The wife wants me find pumpkin spice…

The meds I have got

Sure cost a lot,

But being healthy will be nice.

I have to put gas in the car,

Or next week we won’t get far…

Have to pay down bills

As insurance wills,

Or driving the car will be barred.

The Missus wants a new dress,

It doesn’t cost too much, I guess…

Train calendar for me

And let me see,

A new mop to clean up floor mess!

She’ll want some treat when I’m home.

Will peppermint pretzels atone…

For my being a grouch

When she hollers “OUCH”

With pain when I return home?

She sure has been good to me,

I wish I could guarantee…

We always can

Get what we planned,

Instead of saying, “we’ll see!”

LIKE A FOOL

LIKE A FOOL

Yesterday was payday,

Thought I’d shop on the way…

Home from the job

Without a “bob”,

And hidden my debit away.

So got to the front of the line,

One-thirty AM was the time…

But angrily left

My groceries bereft,

My bank card was home all the time!!!!

When last week we ran short,

I thought I’d be a good sport…

Took the card from the wallet

And didn’t recall it,

Feeling like such a dork.
