She adores elephants, this replica at a local nursery is phenomenal!
How they ever got it in the store is beyond me!
The Dutch flower Vendor
A bit of a shyster, he picked the peonies my daughter purchased, first got her ones fully opened ones. Then when she exchanged them for another color he gave her really small buds which didn't open very nice!....rrrr! I paid for them so I'm allowed to complain! Usually when you let the experts pick they give you the best......it's my favorite flower too.
Saturday the phone rang around mid morn
I heard not a sound of any form
Sleeping so deep when Pepper skulked in
Whispering sweetly with her special grin
“Your friend invited us on a garage sale date”
“Said to call back after you contemplate”
It was on my mind the night before
So I rushed and readied to get out the door
Weather was perfect, not at all hot
Then my foot hit the curb in an odd spot
Next thing I knew I was kissing the street
The gang behind me got quite a treat
All of a sudden my ass was mid air
Showing off cellulite and black underwear
My ego felt none of the usual bruise
When the curb jutted out catching my shoes
My hand came out to reject my fall
Protecting my head my objective to stall
I pulled my dress down, oh so fast
So eyes wouldn’t linger on my fat ass
Skinned knee, skinned foot, a ding here and there
No embarrassment was felt with all that I bare
I felt pretty fortunate to have my body in tact
When a fall from a fat girl can be a fatal act
We continued our day with many a good find
My daughter so attentive, with the plunge on her mind
We giggled, chatted, munched on a sweet
Merrily we joked, about my clash with the street
My left hand is sore, too painful to grip
But my fingers work fine considering my trip
Bruising showed up on my left wrist
Body is stiff , but I can walk, I can twist
Many thought I’d feel stupid showing my bum
Normally I would, plus I’d feel dumb
But I felt no disgrace, I wonder why?
Just thankful no breaks, and that I didn’t die!
