A FULL DAY
© April 1, 2006
I woke up early yesterday, content to be alive.
I knew the day was perfect when I stepped outside at five.
We had to go to Kansas for some stuff Cliff’s brother bought;
It was no trouble getting to the lumber yard we sought.
At nine AM, quite safely home, Cliff worked some on his shed
While I got on my faithful steed and rode eight miles, instead.
We had some quick ham sandwiches; we shared with both the twins,
Since they were helping Cliff on his new project, once again.
While eating lunch, we heard a Harley roaring up the drive.
It seems Cliff’s sister and her husband, Pat, had just arrived.
So we got out the Gold Wing and we headed toward the east
(We lose our cares and problems when we’re riding the “Blue Beast”).
By four o’clock we were back home, and Clifford parked Old Blue.
Charlene said, “Come to our house and we’ll have barbecue”.
We said we’d see them later, so to kill a little time,
We took our daily pasture walk (with all those hills to climb).
We went to Clifford’s sister’s, and the barbecue was great.
We talked of places we could ride... adventures that await.
Back home by eight, “spring forward”, and then time for bed, for me.
As I dozed off, I wondered why I have no energy!
