Bewildered Brood

A bashful bat and a burlesque bee
Married one day and made a baby
They beckoned the doctor to give them a clue
Since neither of them knew what to do.
The doctor came quick to see what was wrong
When he got to the door he heard a sweet song
The bee was out singing to her faithful spouse
Leaving their baby asleep in the house
The two of them noticed they had a new guest
He checked out the baby, you can guess the rest
The man was bewildered, befuddled indeed
He had never seen such a baby in need
The baby was healthy expect for it’s mood
The doctor told mama to give her some food.
The mom gave the food as she had been told
And the baby grew slowly, grew healthy and bold.

From my desk: April 11, 2022

Picture this…..

I’m outside in the front of the house. I have my Dollar Tree broom, my Dollar Tree rake, and my Dollar General upright/stick dustpan. I am scooping dead leaves and other debris into the dustpan and emptying into a large black yard bag, as today is pickup day. I’m happy the front of the house is looking neater.

Across the street, where there is a sweet young couple with a toddler, a big truck pulls up carrying yard equipment. Three burly men get out. One grabs the edge trimmer, one a blower, and one looks like he will be getting on the rider mower. I know that the young man’s parents pay for their yard care. No biggie….I wouldn’t mind the service either.

Anyhow, it made me laugh. I was perfectly content with my $8 equipment. I don’t know how much they pay for weekly yard care. I was almost expecting one of the guys to come over and offer some help! Hahaha, no way!
