Eric Alder post one of his fine photos
every Monday. I am very tardy as this is
his photo from last week- but since he
is off having fun on Labor Day I will
finally write what came to me today
while looking at this work bench....
It's actually quite appropriate for Labor Day!
Work Bench by Eric Alder
Watching my father attempt a repair
As a small child I did not dare
Ask him how come he was doing it that way
Or why in the heck didn't he pay
Someone else who knew what to do
Leaving him time to take me to the zoo
But rather I watched his frustration
and listened to all his damnation's
Until my sweet mother would come into the fray
Telling me it was time to go out and play.
Thanks Eric for this challenging image-
