  • What to do when you can’t take a picture with one hand and have it in focus? You improvise. A last, fond farewell to the letter “R” with this tribute to the many hidden R’s in our everyday words.

    My laundry list…

    Don’t forget:
    to take out the trash
    to pick up the butter and sour cream
    to pay the dry cleaner bill
    we have dinner tomorrow with…
    to tell the gardener to…
    your doctors appointment
    to add the tracking code
    to exercise
    to pick the red tomatoes, oranges, and tangerines
    to turn out the lights
    to relight the fire
    to turn off the washer and the dryer
    the water kettle
    to screw the lids on tight before putting in refrigerator
    to screw the cap on the tooth paste
    to replace the toilet paper before using the last piece
    to reopen the window
    to close the doors
    to say your prayers.

    Don’t forget, it is better to give than receive. However, I have found both pretty rewarding.

    Please don’t forget to smell the plumeria (or roses).


    Don't forget to introduce " 'G' "
