Enjoy your holiday, what are you doing here reading this, get out and have fun...!

Nice to have some time off…


I almost forgot,

What it’s like to have a day off,

And another one tomorrow,

This I could to like, grow…


Laundry done, washed & waxed the company car,

Watchin’ the neighbors get drunk and high,

Fixed the awning so Rufuz has a shady place to lie,

My glasses all fogged up, from sweat I suppose,

In my lounger in the sun and breeze I do repose…


Drinking water by the gallon,

Watched a hawk pick up a mouse in its talon,

Nothing more to do tonight but relax,

Hey, I can actually get to watch some TV,

Something I have in the recent months lacked…


So to all my readers and those that stop into my site,

Have a happy holiday, get drunk, get high, do whatever you might…

Well we have to get hot water tank fixed and here is still pleasant weather. Might go down to the lake to jump in and get good bath. Have to wait a few days for the water heater but have fun.
