Dear Editor:

Is Spring around the corner?

Nope she's knocking on the door

With my list to clean the windows

And wash and wax the floor.

Must take time to check for cobwebs

In the corners of the wall

(The spiders have been busy

Since they moved inside last Fall).

Time again to rid the clutter

Can't believe how much we've stored

Seems that we've gone overboard.

Are there closets overflowing

With stuff from who knows when

Should it go or should we keep it

Till sometime it fits again?

Well it seems "Depression Babies"

Have grown into adults

And growing up in those hard times

Brough various results.

While some grew up as savers

And just can't bear to purge

Others left bad times behind

And get that urge to splurge.

Now I think I see my problem

Should I pitch this spool of wool?

Most would see it as half-empty

But I see it as half full.

Oh ... decisions sap my energy

So a line I'd like to borrow

Is from Scarlet O'Hara of Tara

"I'll think about it tomorrow."

Jacque Patrick,
