Da Count in 55-Refuge

The children can't get along.
The plumbing is leaky.
There was a call from the school.
Dinner's burnt.
Work is a grind.
The dog chewed my good shoes.
The car died.
The bills are piling up.
I'm glad you're home, honey.
It's good to be home, come sit with me.
I thought you'd never ask.

Those two lovers just need a smaller house, that way, there's just nowhere else to sit but next to you!

Aw, you just made my day with that picture and poem. Don't know why but it truly hit the tender spot. Great post.

lecram said...

Ahhh... sweet count. :)

Rebicmel said...

Lime this is an awesome flash. Love the pic that comes with it. Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!!!

furiousBall said...

I always like the words that aren't said in a poem, or I like to put my own thoughts in there. The husband actually asks the wife to sit next to him so she isn't blocking his view of the game on the TV or so he can tell her that he lost his job...sheesh, I need to get outside and get some sunshine.

rose_michelle said...

Yeah, my computer is "down for maintenance" so I'm on my hubby's and don't have his other contact info. Damn ... it was easier when I was just down the hall from him, not he's "across post".

M said...

That's a great ditty! I hope leaky plumbing and dead car you mentioned are not true and are just artistic license.

barman said...

Very good, I loved it. I hope all is well in the house of lime and this is nothing but fiction. If not, then next to each other sounds pretty darn good.

Jocelyn said...

How could you not describe your good shoes? What kind are they? Heels?

Give me more.

Not that I have a problem.

(natch, your 55 is lovely. Always makes me catch my breath a bit)

RennyBA said...

Wishing you and your family a great end to your week :D

MIke Kilgore said...

Life in PA, what could be better? (Yah, I know, lots of stuff...) Mines up!

Cooper said...

Very sweet....Lucky Mr. Lime.

parisukat said...

the week ends and work is done and you're just too tired... it's good to know you have a warm place to rest and go home to... your family's loving arms.

Gawpo said...

...and Placido Domingo is sitting on your sofa kissing some girl.

Nice.

Beach Bum said...

After all the crap chasing modern life is over for the day the most important thing for a family is the love they have for each other. Have a great weekend Lime.

TLP said...

That was great! Best yet.

Sandi said...

I love this post.
It is so sweet.
To remind us why.
We get up every morning.
Thanks.

BTExpress said...

What a great 55.

The Zombieslayer said...

That poem makes me think of our golden years. The reason they call it the golden years is that you only have to deal with the grandkids and they go home after dinner.

The kids will call every once in awhile to borrow money but you can tell them you don't have your hearing aid in so you can't understand one word they're saying and those telemarketers need to get lost anyways.

Joeprah said...

Poetry Rules! Nice one!

cindra said...

THAT was good. I like it a lot...great image...and you write so well.

You should come over to my place and write. You could win a prize, you know.

Hope you had a good week-end. Ours was crazy...and I'm up too late again getting in the mommy quiet time. Dang.

big xo

Breazy said...
