The Screen Door

Our grandkids came to visit With their parents - what a treat! We laughed, played games, took walks, explored - The package was complete. Of course, there had to be a few Small snags along the way, Including some enthusiasm With a price to pay. The sliding screen door to the porch Took quite a bruising blow When someone ran right into it - That’s how things sometimes go. We didn’t make too big a deal - Thought it could be replaced - For home repair skills aren’t assets That we have embraced. But to the rescue came our friend - More handy than we knew - Who, with a borrowed tool and patience, Saw just what to do. Some fiddling around and then, Voila! Our door’s repaired. A lovely end result for which We weren’t quite prepared. How lucky to have friends like that But luckier by far To have the grandkids visit, As rambunctious as they are.

Better a screen door than a patio door! Reminds me of a song from the 50s, "Memories are made of this!" . . . . .
