WHAT A DAY!

WHAT A DAY!

We woke this morning and found

Our two back rooms drowned…

The water heater

Proceeded to peter

Out without a sound.

If I’d known the trouble it’d bring,

On Sunday I’d have given a ring…

But a pile of clothes

Was too wet to pose

As the result of a water bottle leaking!

Monday night we were aghast

At water, rising fast…

Under the rug and

In the wall it had command,

We were faced with an ugly task.

The guys came in and moved

Furniture as behooved…

Magazines

By the tons, it seems

Were deposited wherever approved!

Two vacuums and an extractor

Made noise a factor…

They are not yet done

With lots more “fun”

Ahead til sometime after.

In the midst of trouble deep

The wife falls asleep (!)…

Secure in her chair

Not going anywhere,

Some real funny hours we keep!

SUNDAY NIGHT AT OUR APARTMENT HOUSE

SUNDAY NIGHT AT  OUR APARTMENT HOUSE

Getting awful quiet now,

The folks are mostly in bed…

Some will get up with the sun

By eight P.M. the place is dead.

I’m doing last-minute laundry

Before the room closes down…

Wife’s wheeled walker is the laundry cart

On hallway carpet makes little sound.

One more load to cycle

In time for wash and dry,

After supper i am sweaty,

Is there any wonder why?
