Lying on my back in the sand
beyond the Rockies of my breasts
and I think I have a toe
MOM’S XMAS IN MAINE
--taken verbatim from a card sent to me by my mother
after “retirement” to Caribou, Maine
I simply can’t
get the pkgs. out in time,
they aren’t even gift-wrapped!
The house isn’t decorated,
the tree’s not up,
there are no drapes in the LR
and no blinds in my BR
(they’re ordered but still haven’t come.)
I have only 2 kinds of cookies made
& today I broke a big bowl in the kitchen
& pottery shattered everywhere,
& the cat’s driving me insane!
My cleaning’s done
& my cards are all sent.
Two neighbors brought me wreaths –
I hung one on the front door
& one on the window
(outside – it’s real pine
or fir or balsam
I have 2 doctor appts before Xmas
my BP is 200 over 95
& I’m supposed to be having the dinner this year!
P.S. Don’t cash this
till after Xmas.
You’ll be able to buy
twice as much.
