    Hope y'all get a kick out of this.....it's true to life around here :smile2:; thus I am putting it in general conversation.

    The rain is falling softly, in North Carolina fine
    The fog, it never lifted.....I need a glass of wine.

    The roof is a bit leaky, but really not too much
    I think it is the flashing.....from what I know 'bout such.

    Refrigerator froze up, the man took it apart
    He thawed it out and it worked fine.....back at the very start.

    But now it's leaking water too, inside right at the back
    I wish that I could fix these things.....ALAS, don't have the knack.

    So I collect the water, and use it for my plants
    Folks say....."Is it spring yet?", but I don't miss the ants.

    My water heater's drippy, commode rocks on the floor
    The shower stall's a rusty box.....but WAIT, there's even more!

    The washer, she's a classic; and rattles when she runs
    She does a dance out on the floor and I say "SON OF A GUN!"

    Cat food in the DRYER? Now how'd that get in there?
    Crunchy chicken tidbits were not what I wanted to wear.

    The cat caught fifteen little mice and SOME of them were toys
    She runs 'round like a CARTOON mouse.....and then there are the boys.

    The dogs leave long hair ev'rywhere, they feel quite free to roam
    When they are gone I'll shed some tears.....they make this house a home.

    A squirrel chewed through the power line, and put us in the dark
    The tree the power man hacked up.....drops pinecones where I park.

    I need to use those apples up, that I bought on the mountain
    UH-OH, my ink pen bit the dust.....it's squirting like a fountain!

    May be I'll make an apple cake, I like that more than pie
    But HE prefers the other one.....sometimes you please the GUY.

    Bet that will make this house smell good, with scents of spice and butter
    When he shows up and sniffs the air.....his heart'll be all aflutter.

    Some cobwebs in the corners, and dust upon the shelf
    Let me go get the lemon Pledge.....OOPS! There's a Christmas elf.

    Computer, it needs cleaning; key-board has squeaky keys
    And might as well dust underneath.....God help these creaky knees.

    Now we ALL have our troubles, I know this to be true
    But what makes HOME is family.....and part of MINE is YOU.

    Tanya, for the last 4 days you've not logged on,
    makes me wonder where has Tanya gone,
    If anyone see's her, tell her the BOC is out looking,
    and we better not find her in the kitchen just simply cooking,
    Because only the most extreme excuse well we consider,
    a good enough reason to go this long without her

    Funny thing is, Tanya posted this back on Jan. 28 and did'nt get one reply or thanks. I stumbled across it on page 15 or something. Wonder why nobody replied to it? Anyway, great post Tanya!

    Oh yeah, I forgot every thank you got deleted. It did'nt have any replies on it either. I guess they got deleted too. Oh well, I still think it's a good one.
