From the book Memories & Time
White clouds, rain clouds, rainbows and rain
a broken heart, causing great pain.
Raindrops, teardrops, a hole in your soul
when you cry in the rain, no one will know.
Trash heap, ass deep, survive best you can
seek a way out, come up with a plan.
Moonlight, moonshine, that purple glow
a change in your outlook and you’re into the flow.
Move on, play on, survival the objective
memories and passions, not quite reflective.
Old love, new love, a kiss and a smile
a change in your mood, now feeling quite guile.
Gramps use’ta say
About: Angry women
“One look usually says far more
than a whole mouthful of words.”
From The Hints Book Almanac II
Today’s hints all concern cleaning floors
CLEANING/FLOORS – Black marks – Pour a little lighter fluid on a paper towel and the marks will wipe right off. Lighter fluid works for a lot of other cleaning purposes too. For stains on concrete floors – Pre-treat stain with laundry or dishwasher detergent. Let the solution soak for about 30 minutes then scrub. Oily stains might also be treated with a shampoo designated for oily hair. Tar on carpet – Blot up as much as you can, don’t rub. Loosen the tar with a liquid lighter fluid or apply a solution of equal parts warm water and glycerin. Leave on one hour then spot clean with a carpet cleaner. Other carpet stains – Grape juice stains 1. Six drops of Dawn dish washing liquid in two cups of warm water 2. Dampen white cloth lay over stain. 3. Set iron to low and lay (do not press) on top of white cloth for about 15 minutes. Wait for cloth to turn red 4. Then start rinsing once you have the desired amount of stain removed. Do not rub the stain, instead dab. Shaving cream also. It’ll be easier to vacuum it off your carpets and upholstery if you mix 2 tablespoons of fabric softener in one cup of water in a spray bottle. Spray the carpet or upholstery, let dry a few minutes and then vacuum. When dusting “nooks and crannies,“ try using a clean, soft paintbrush. Spray it with a light coat of furniture polish to dust and polish areas you can’t normally reach.
