Dark, a Limerick…

lightbulb-336193_1920

Fumbling in darkness, a hamper
No light, not a happy camper
But there’s an easy fix
No need for candle wicks
Just put a new bulb in the lamp, dear!

  5. Cute! Thogh I tend to run into our black Lab, Tara, who loves to lie down not in cozy corners or under a table, but sprawled out across a doorway or hallway. She’s low to the ground and, in the dark, impossible to see with her beautiful black coat. I keep telling her she’s going to get both of us killed one night. πŸ™‚

  13. Am I interpreting this correctly? Put down the remote and get your damn butt off the sofa and change the light bulb? Is that about right?

  15. This was super fun and clever, Dee.
    So glad you shared and reminded me that laughter is the best medicine for You, dear. ❀
    Although I was too early (premature prayer) I think it may help in preparation for you, the surgeon and the "Man upstairs." I will definitely have you on my list first thing on Tuesday.
    Try and relax, breathe deeply and remember tickling J.P. and how much love your family has in you. xoxo

    1. Thanks, Robin. They called to give me more freaking information today — feel like putting my hands over my ears, lol.

      1. Yes, I had to breathe in a bag for a few moments back when my pap smear came out so close to stage four C. Crazy, don’t they know how to break information into small bits to ponder and digest?
        Hugs, holding you tightly and I know this will turn out okay. ❀
