THE WEEKEND!!!!

THE WEEKEND!!!!

Ninety minutes or less,

i’m bound for a weekend’s rest…

Except for

An occasional chore,

And the chance to live undressed!

Eighty-five minutes and counting,

Anticipation’s mounting…

To see the Missus,

Get a few kisses

And sing some praise resounding!

WRITTEN WHILE THE MISSUS GOT REINTRODUCED

WRITTEN WHILE THE MISSUS GOT REINTRODUCED

Physical therapy,

Not something done to me…

Except (I forgot)

When an injured back taught

Proper posture and lifting to me!!!!

The wife comes in again

For help with shoulder pain…

A chance to ease

Her suffering , please,

‘Though arthritis damage remains.

Therapists here all know

My wife from a previous “go”…

Familiarity

Is important you see,

They’ll take things patiently and slow.

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!”

NEW (BUT FAMILIAR) DOCTOR’S OFFICE

NEW (BUT FAMILIAR) DOCTOR’S OFFICE

 

The doctor I had…retired…

And the buyout of his practice required…

A physician new

At a different office to

Continue my care as transpired.

The buyout people were the same,

As my wife’s plan with the same name…

My wife cared

And she gladly shared

He doctor–a woman of fame.

Her doctor we’d seen a long while,

A number of years her style…

We both got to know

‘Cause I had to go

In with the Missus each trial.

So my “new” doctor’s office is mine,

Which we’ve visited for a long time…

Her doctor gladly

Took on me,

‘Cause we’ve known each other over time.
