Our condo is twenty years old and we are being reminded of it. Our refrigerator stopped cooling properly a few days ago. Perishable foods are in danger while we wait for a serviceman to arrive this morning to let us know if our refrigerator can be repaired or must be replaced. Meanwhile, our water heater needs to be replaced so we’re getting bids for that. Meanwhile, water is leaking down through the ceiling in one of the bathrooms, coming from a unit somewhere above us. Plumbers are working on that one. At the moment we have a large hole cut in the ceiling of the bathroom and a plastic tub on the floor to catch the water.
On more pleasant matters, famous early literacy authority DR. TIMOTHY (TIM) RASINSKI has posted, in anticipation of Presidents’ Day on February 20, two poems, one by KENN NESBITT and one by me. In 2013 the Poetry Foundation named Kenn as Children’s Poet Laureate. My poem first appeared in RHYMES FOR THE TIMES, LITERACY STRATEGIES THROUGH SOCIAL STUDIES, co-authored with Rasinski and published in 2016 by Shell Education. Here’s the link to Tim’s post. https://www.facebook.com/timothy.rasinski/posts/pfbid02eZxAY8S2TKnL1D3WxXUogzvCuigZzJJ4tpJWg6UtwoN2DrkWVnBjyjNzZz617mZEl?notif_id=1676549036861602¬if_t=tagged_with_story&ref=notif
