Muddy Boots

I was never particularly proud Hearing Mother yelling “For cryin’ out loud! I have just mopped the floor, Before you opened the door Muddy boots in the house are not allowed!” May 28, 2021 "Bite Size 3" Poetry Contest sponsored by Line Gautier

Yeah, I did, sometimes. It was one of the things she most hated, and considering the work involved, I can understand why (as an adult!) Thanks for the visit, and happy Sunday to you!

Lol. Milton this reminded me when I had muddy boots and was yelled at by mom too. Those good old days as a kid. Hilarious write, my friend.
