In the grey windy afternoon of Monday ,
my friend and I stopped  to get a cup of coffee.

Out the window of the restaurant we saw
a flock come from the lake, of thirty mallards and hens.

Bold as could be they quacked
crowded arriving cars and departing people

 hustling for bread and french fries!

FF55 Really No Excuse

Sheer stupidity of not planning well!
Been meaning to chip in on a sheet cake
for our groups 25th anniversary.          

Then a friend asked for a ride at the last minute
So I did not even get to the bank.    
 A newer member came to our rescue
and brought in a TON of food!

        Praise be that someone is there, to show the rest of us about generosity
and anonymity-

Fresh paint on the kitchen walls-warm yellow.
Deep red freshener on lower cupboards.
