Heating difficulties.

My heatings, gone kaput,

With this I will not put.

I telephoned the plumber man.

And he came round hot foot.

Look here says I, this will not do.

I'm old and very frail.

On top of that forecast says,

It's going to flipping hail.

It's old says he, it's pipes are choked

I'll have to flush it out.

On hearing this old Midge jumps up

All ready with a quivering snout.

Calm down says I you're far too fat

To go chasing down the pipe.

Plumber man takes his hammer out,

And gives the pipe a swipe.

The heatings back to working now,

But tomorrow he'll be back.

To pressure wash the system out

And get it back on track.

It's for real alright. It's working now and if it goes off again I have a number of heaters available. He will be back to flush it tomorrow and if that doesn't fix it I can live in my campervan parked in the driveway until it's sorted. The old and frail was a bit of a fib, the frail anyway. :-)

That is very good service, as it should be. It can be very worrying when the heating goes off. Hope your chest infection has cleared, there's some very cold weather on it's way here so I'm told.

Pressure washing takes a while

So patient you must be

All gets done with a smile

And a lovely cup of tea.

Hang on in there Don and Midge. Xxx 😘💖😘💖

Scruffy certainly knows her stuff

That clever little ball of fluff

Put those two in a room together

They'd soon warm up

As they run for leather

scruffs and midge what a pair

though scruffy has much more hair

midge has got a larger brain

and scruffs is just a blooming pain

together they would make us laugh

until we stuck them in the bath

then we could rest and have a beer

and they would sleep of that no fear(sorry i gave up on the last line don,you are the master and i am but the grasshopper,,,x

I think you have to be well into your second childhood to be good at rhyming. I can't believe when I hear folk complaining that they are now 'old' at 65. Strewth! They are 21 years younger than me. :-o
