Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.

I get out of bed
And trip over my shoes
Put on the coffee
and check out the news.

I scan the obits-
To see if I;m there--
Put on my clothes
And comb
my hair.

A look in the mirror
Finds a few more gray hairs
A new wrinkle of two
Have appeared here and there.

It's all part of life
I say to myself
We must keep on going
Or waste away on the shelf!

I reach for my coffee
and spill some on the floor
Feed all the pets
and head out the door.

I smile to myself
As I scan my domain
Knowing --tomorrow
I'll do it all over again!!

Wonderful musing about mornings, Mel!

One of my friends is fond of saying that it's a good day ... because she woke up on the "right side" of the grass! =)
