Put off...

...until tomorrow, what you could have done today?
I'll get to it sometime, is that what you say?
Maybe, next Tuesday.  I'll think about then,
here's the next question.  If not now, when?

Procrastination is as old as time itself,
because now we know, we're sitting on a shelf,
way up in someones closet, somewhere near the top,
maybe he's waiting - for the other shoe to drop.

This can't be the things are, according to some plan,
or, maybe just maybe, things aren't so out of hand,
this could be just the way things are, so don't get carried away,
because if we don't do it now......well,,,there's always another day.

NOTE:  Thanks to everyone for your support, it's very much appreciated.

I went... the doctor, wife told me to go over there,
she didn't say 'come home after', so I didn't dare;
that part is not true, but it rhymes kind of pretty,
yes, it's me, back again to continue the ditty.

Gone to the hospital for the past four days,
lots of pneumonia, put me right in a daze;
gave me lots of IV's full of powerful stuff,
looked in my lungs, did suction, I had enough.

Now back home, yesterday evening, as it were,
trying to get caught up, not bad, it's not like a blurr;
still on anti-biotics, it's powerful med,
so...I've just been following - because I was led.

So, I'll be here tomorrow, and keep on keeping on,
and if anything happens again, well, you'll know that I'm gone,
not that far really, it's just over in town,
not much today though, of my usual running around.

Larry and Ol' Larry thank you for your continued interest.

There are...

...times, when we don't know,
wether we hear sounds that are high or low,
and certain words or phrases, just don't seem to mean a thing,
or maybe, for some, when our ears just hang and ring.

Whatever the cause, when you can't hear it's bad,
or is it him or her, we wonder, whose hearing can't be had;
what if it's not us, but other people who....
...are deaf; so they can't tell how to answer you!

A man feared his wife was not hearing as well as she used to, and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.

The doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss. 'Here's what you do,' said the doctor. 'Stand about 40 feet away from her and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.'

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, 'I'm about 40 feet away. Let's see what happens.' In a normal tone he asks, 'Honey, what's for dinner?'

No response.

So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife, and repeats, 'Honey, what's for dinner?'

Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, 'Honey, What's for dinner?'

Again, no response.

So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. 'Honey, What's for dinner?'

Again, there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her. 'Honey, what's for dinner?'

'Earl, for the 5th time, CHICKEN!'

I'm a...

....little hard of hearing, as some of you know,
and I'd like to make a point of what bothers me so;
a lot of letters sound alike as C, D and P,
and don't forget others like, B, E or T.

I found a little story to show how this might work,
this poor guy got arrested, even though he's not a jerk,
you see, sometimes M and N, sure enough sound the same,
so just follow the story (it's long) and I will sign my name.

"Not hind lick?"                "Nope"
