The Hat Rack

  

                                    neatly stacked firewood in disarray

                                    just one more time

                                    I'd love to hear my father say

                                    use your head

                                    for something besides a hat rack

  1. That's an expression I hadn't heard, Teresa, but I still collapse stacks of wood sometimes.

    1. We were being careless kids, making forts in the wood ... it didn't go over well. I have long gotten over any sting those words might have caused.

      Keeping that wood stacked neatly is a real balancing act sometimes ... :)

  2. Beautiful. So many things I'd like to hear my Daddy say again....

  3. My father used to use this expression all the time. The problem with it was I seldom, if ever, wore a hat. If I reminded him of this fact he'd get even more mad. So I usually refrained from being a wise guy.

    1. I recall that temptation myself, and thought better of it ... :)))
