The Dreaded Green Wall

There once was a wall in an apartment.... This wall was terribly green.

It made the living room an awful scene.

It was the color of... a green bean.

A wife asked a sweet hubby pleeeease paint it. She wanted something more... serene.

He surprised her and and taped it off... It was the opposite of mean. :)

He worked ALL day, like a machine!

He primed it white, without any caffeine.

Then he painted it blue! The wife was as happy as a queen.

This new marine....

It looks so clean.

Just found your blog this morning after reading your comment about our twins splashing in a dishpan of water.

Your poem is such fun, and the new color very nice. Anything like the skies of Texas?

Very best,
