This Labyrinth I Roam is hosting NN1 on New Year Resolutions. Here is my little bit:
When comes the New Year is when I
Get energy renewed;
With launching into DIY
Ambition am imbued
This year I sought a filter that
On pool replaces one
That just a lot of use is, fat,
To get sand-filt’ring done.
The two-bag jobs expensive are,
And, new, beyond my means,
So, looked at ads both near and far
On internet-type scenes.
And on the nineteenth jumped for joy —
Just what I wanted traced!
But, oh, how it did me annoy,
That it had gone in haste.
I asked that I be notified
If that deal should fall through …
Next day, such duly was apprised,
And hope flared up anew!
The distance there was quite a way,
But I drove there at speed;
To dig out took me half a day,
But I got what I need!
This filter and all twiddly-bits
Have safely been brought back;
Now started on the fitting fits —
Filtration I won’t lack!
