Up Early

Up and at ’em (as Mom used to say).

Up at 5:39 to be exact.

Plenty of time to have my coffee

And stare at the wall (as Mom used to say).

Meeting Joe G. at 8:00 a.m.

Picking up old windows from John A.

For the old garage on Spring St.

And pick up the four pieces of furniture

I bought from John A.

He recycles and reconfigures this and that

Into cheerful, charming cabinets, tables, nightstands, birdhouses…

The furniture will also go to Spring St. as I slowly turn it into a vacation rental.

Joe G. and Homer G. building a covered back porch there

(Faces west, very hot)

And shelves in the utility room closet.

Rain has kept Charlie S. from delivering a load of granite gravel

For the dirt floor in the garage.

When it comes to rain,

We don’t complain.
