No Blog Today (Maybe a Poem)!

No Blog Today! But you know that I want to, don’t you? Can I sneak in a few lines, perhaps a pic? If so, what do I have! Hmmmh! Maybe just a memory and a Poem to boot.

Here is the only poem that I know off by heart! It adorned the bathroom wall in my fathers house when I was a child! Written by Mabel Lucy Attwell, I remember…

Please remember, don’t forget

Never leave the bathroom wet

Nor leave the soap still in the water

That’s a thing we never alter

Nor leave the towels about the floor

Nor keep the bath an hour or more

When other folks are waiting one

Please don’t forget it isn’t done!

Have a lovely day everyone and give a few hugs to the ones you love!

      1. I think your picture goes quite well with the poem.
        I have a book of her verses, it’s in my basement among my books for children, I must go take a look at it today. 🙂

      2. Indeed, Andy, lots of treasured books for the hunting!
        I am quite an avid collector of books and have a large library, wall to wall.
        My hubby has been telling me that I need to let go of some of my books but it is so hard to do.
        But I did manage to pack up some cookbooks and have donated them to our library here. 🙂

      3. You do seam to be rather well read! So I am not at all surprised to hear that you have a few shelves full! Well regarding the cookbooks, you can always check out one of them for 4 weeks and return it on the due date, can’t you? 😃
