If you think the first ones were bad, ...

Note the paint removal above the mailbox.

Fun --

Well, half of it, for the moment --

A is for apple, and B is for Boat,
That used to be right, but now it won't  float.

Age before beauty is what we once said,
But let's be a bit more realistic instead.

Now, A's for arthritis; B's the bad back,
C is for chest pains, perhaps cardiac.

D is for dental decay and decline;
E is for eyesight, can't read that top line.

F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas, which I'd rather not mention.

H is high blood pressure--I'd rather it low;
I for incisions with scars you can show.

J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend.
K is for knees that crack when they bend.

L for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget! What comes next? 


  1. Reminds me of the rescue dog my brother adopted. Within minutes of coming home it escaped out the front door and ran in front of a car and lived just long enough to wrack up big bills.

    I think I'll stick to birdfeeders.

  2. My collie doesn't like mail, either! And the neighbor's lab would let in a robber--good thing there aren't many of those around. I've joked that if someone were to rob my house, the neighbors would just ignore Pippa's barking, she barks at everything!
