Home Is So Sad

Home is so sad. It stays as it was left

Shaped to the comfort of the last to go

As if to win them back. Instead, bereft

Of anyone to please, it withers so,

Having no heart to put aside the theft

And turn again to what it started as,

A joyous shot at how things ought to be

Long fallen wide. You can see how it was:

Look at the pictures and the cutlery.

The music piano stool. That vase.

Here We Go Again

Well I see with the New Year the car is up to its old tactics. There goes my timing belt, Again! If a timing belt fails completely, the entire engine will grind to a halt and the car will become inoperable.

In a worst case scenario, the valves and pistons may drive themselves into the camshaft and become hopelessly bent or broken. There is usually very little warning before timing belts fail, so now I’m not only dealing with just changing the belt but also the valves because you guessed it they got bent.

What a day!
