Welcome!
This is our home!
It's not just a place to eat, shower and sleep!
It feels like us when you come up the walk!
There's a rock garden I created and a flower bed.
Our cats: Cry Baby (mama) and Lover Boy (son)
Will greet you.
Come up the stairs to the front door,
Where you'll find a basket hanging by the door.
It's a "Burden Basket"!
The place to leave your troubles and worries,
Before you step through the door.
So you may relax, visit and enjoy the peace.
Come in, sit down; make yourself at home.
And stay as long as you like.
Enjoy the plants, our collections;
Pictures of family and friends.....
Look.....there's one of you!
We could watch a movie, listen to music;
Play a game or just visit.
Would you like something to drink?
Or maybe something to munch on?
And when our visit is done,
Your troubles and worries will be waiting.
In the burden basket outside the door.
If you still want them?
If not, leave them,
And they will wash away with the next rain.
Bye.....had a wonderful visit!
Thanks for coming over!
Please visit again!
