Playing in the Dirt - My story

Do you ever wonder what I am up to 
while the guys are slaving
pouring and

This my friends
is what I have been up to.

see this?

and this

Look here

And over here...

are those thorns?

and poison ivy???

and ticks and chiggers and mosquitoes?

Yes my dainties,

all of the above.

In between each pile
of debris

hand dug
and tossed out from under
the lovely 
cedar trees,

I stagger over to my recliner
and snarf down a
granola bar
and a quart of water.

And scratch my poison ivy some more.

And thank the Good Lord
for life
 and good hard work...

and shade.

  2. that's so fantastic. i can't wait to come and see this place of wonderment. i will appreciate it so much more.


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
