And A Good Morning To You Too

I stepped outside by sheer routine To find the paper in the green As usual I must shake it off A soggy mess, so it's a loss Now sprinklers smack me in the eyes My PJ's soaked, (one more surprise)! And bunny slippers, are wet again I shuffle back up to my den But find the door has locked and then My neighbor waves, with stifled grins He helps me through the window screen All the while I want to scream! I settle for the TV news Oh dear! ... The world is torn in two! So now I have the morning blues! I turn it off, and start my brew The window frames the early sun The boiling pot is almost done I let the cat out, drink my tea I spy a mirror, who is she??! I have a laugh as well I should I'll drink the day, and digest the good!

    Look at it this way Carrie...it couldn't have got any worse! (Or did it?)...3rd to last line doubled me over with laughter! (but I pulled a muscle in the process)...Congratulations, my friend

    Just another start to a day... in the life of one of 'Soup's' 'Most Beautiful!' (We are an elite group...) The mirror part...I have to say...is the highlight of MY day!) Was a joy to read this wonderful Gem! I could visualize your every move...You have a very lucky neighbor...I'll begrudgingly add.
