Water Shock.

Around the house I went

Mini water can in hand

Watering the plants

A regular job

Ensuring the survival

Of these indoor beauties

Then I came to a new one

Sitting there glistening

Glistening in the corner

I poured some water on it

When I got up from the floor

I realised

You should never water

And electric Christmas Tree.

    Did ya blow up? Good to hear from ya today. You're still with us!
    I was concerned about a small tree stored in a basement. I said 'Will it die off down here?' Answer was 'No, it's an artificial tree!' Doh!

    • Goldfinch60

        Coeeee - good! You going to any more anniversaries this year? I read of a 700th anniversary. It seems Parliament was run from an estate near my home town, for a short while in 1319. I was probably an MP then. I had to open my move my lips, but.... you know the rest. They why it all went wrong from then on?

          A morning grin - no with electric ones you just use the plug (if the chain is long enough).

                  Creating laughter is so important, especially the ability to laugh at ourselves.

                    I have a couple of albums by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra - they are very good with the Classical/Heavy Rock combination.
