The first day of my vacation, what to do,

Tomorrow I got a doctor’s appointment,

And various other things to do,

But today so far, all I got is to feel blue…

 

A tree service is cuttin’ up the trees,

Was gettin’ tired of looking at the mess,

Don’t know what they are chargin’ in fees,

Whatever it is, they deserve more,

They do their job well, I must confess…

 

Don’t feel up to the beach today,

Went down there anyway yesterday,

I didn’t stay long, didn’t get a walk,

Too many people, the crowds made me balk…

Vacations are over-rated lol... I haven't been on one in years!
Just push yourself out man, you'll feel better :)

Vacations can be that way. Now that I'm (re) tired you would think I could do a lot of things. However, all I seem to do is get up every morning and work on the computer until about 7 PM and then crash until bedtime. And then get up and start all over again. Better hurry up, your vacation is going fast.

Summer time brings the people to the water.....go back down....there might be someone to meet to bring the smile back to you. Not necessarily a lady...just another soul about to enter your life and begin your vacation with joy. Hope you don't get an ouchy when you get your bill for the tree cutting. To bad I wasn't close by i would of loved to get a hold of many of the branches.....I use them as frames for paintings........or mandala's......but I only use the ones from tree's that have let go of their branches from storms....do you see the silver lining?

Sounds like you have a touch of the bad ole blues, Ed. Come on, man, you're on vacation, put a smile on your face and have fun.
