Finding My Car 🚗

I’m always at the local mall
I can walk, it’s not that far
Although – to be quite honest
I often take the car.
Because of that annoying
Autopilot brain of mine*
Forgetting where I have parked
Happens all the time!
So I’ve devised a system
It’s kind of a little game…
(While I find it amusing
My kids just think it’s lame).
I take the letter of the Level
And the number of the Row
Then I turn it into a word
That I’ll recall, you know.
If park on Level F
Somewhere in Row 1
Perhaps my retail outing
Will be lots of fun.
But if I’m on Level C
In Row number 4
When I get home, I may need
To exercise my core.
My odd little system makes
Finding the car a breeze
Now I need a simple way
To find my flamin’ keys!
I had another verse in mind
About a D6 parking spot…
But my hubby shook his head
“Perhaps you’d better not”.

Our Puppy: The Fashionista

Our puppy is quite talented
Her skills – they have no end
When it comes to fashion advice
On her, I can depend.
I should take her shopping
She has great “taste” in shoes
She’s fussy about slippers –
Hotel freebies just won’t do.
I was dismayed about my boots
Till I understood the reason
She saved me from a big mistake
Those boots were sooo last season!


Freebies? Not on her watch!


Grabbing socks or stockings
She’ll run off out the door
She wants us to be up-to-date
Buying new ones from the store.
Accessories are her specialty
How she loves hats and sunnies!
But, sometimes the alterations
Really aren’t that funny.
She added a fringe to my cap 😧
Well, I sure let out a yelp
You see, there really are some times
I can do without the help!

Yes, some “advice” has been good
While some has left me vexed
All the while I’m left to ponder
What she’ll turn her eye to next!

Hi there, everyone, what do your pets get up to? Feel free to leave a comment below. Kath 😀

A Valentine’s Day Poem

Love hearts are all around  
Valentine’s Day is drawing near
Hubby and I don’t make a fuss
We’ve been together many years.
Back when our romance was young
(And, let’s face it, so were we)
We embraced Valentine’s Day
Made a bit of an effort, you see.
I remember those exciting times
When we were truly smitten 💕
Valentine’s cards were purchased
And romantic words, written.


Cute toys were exchanged
And flowers were a winner
We’d often pop a cork (or two!) 
Along with a nice dinner.


Ads in the newspaper
Were carefully arranged
But, after we were married,
Well… Valentine’s Day changed.
I asked for no more flowers
Notices, or stuffed bunnies
Valentine’s Day became low-key
In order to save money.
Now we just exchange small gifts
To show that we each care
They’re often sweet and edible
…Chocolates (not underwear!)
