Up at Six

Up at six, wash, walk dog,
Breakfast, make picnic,
Load up, final check,
On the road by the half hour.

First stop,
One hundred and twenty seven miles,
Potty break or three, cup of roadside tea.
Be there by eleven.

Next stop, an hour away,
Lunch perhaps and a potty break,
Arrive by 2.30, meet agent,
This one of main interest.

Final viewing, four to five pm,
Another hour of driving,
Hope weather holds, not hot or cold,
No diversion this week please.

Paperwork trail, directions, details,
Route plotted, time allowed,
Shared driving, watering dog,
Admiring the view? I wish.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
