The Joy Of Having No Place To Go

The happiest nightsI ever knowAre those when I’veNo place to go,When the missus saysWhen the day is through:“Tonight we don’t haveA thing to do.”Oh, the joy of it,And the peace untoldOf sitting ’roundIn my slippers old,With [music and book] In my easy chair,Knowing I needn’tGo anywhere!Needn’t hurryMy evening mealNor force the smilesThat I do not feel,But

If Only Everyone Agreed To Take A Break At The Same Time…

I can’t count the number of times in life that I’ve thought to myself, “I wish everyone would agree to just slow down and take a break at the very same time so we could all get caught up for once!”  However, never in a million years did I expect it to actually happen…and yet,
