Friday 55

Time to provide the  g-man with a little 55 word entertainment.  Make sure to share with him if you do the same.

“How are you?” was the question.

A million replies came flooding forward.  
 Sadly, none were jolly.  
 Petty complaints rushed to elbow my non-committal, “I’m here” 
out of the way.

Then it hit me. 

Being “here”, 
even on a bad day, 
is better than the alternative.

A dirt nap.

The eye opening revelation,
made me smile.

There are days like that...well usually not days, but moments. I hate to commit an entire day to 'meh'. Not a fun place to be.

Sometimes being here is the most courageous thing there is.

Thanks y'all!

Seems like half my office and kitchen are now taking up space on our back porch! Half will go to work with me on Monday, the "kitchen" half will only be drug along once a week, as needed.

Have a great weekend!
