Pre Thanksgiving.

It was the day before Thanksgiving and all over the house, the place had been cleaned except for the foyer and the front porch.

I dusted the inside, cleaned the hardwood stairs, took out my vacuum and made it as bright as a torch.
The windows were cleaned by Mr. Sparkle, within and without.  But the cobwebs, dust, and leaves outside were very abundant, no doubt.

As I looked around and thought ' should I proceed?' I wasn't into ladders or brooms. There must be something else I need.

Hey, there is! I have an extension-pole with a dust-cloth that will take down the 'webs. Could it work outside? Maybe not, I thought with some dread.

I swung the pole around making my efforts look simple. And the grin on my face surely showed a dimple!

Now, looking at the inlaid-tile porch wondering what else I could do? Blowing was not an option. It would only blow back. Would my Dyson vacuum suck it all up? Give it a try, what the heck.

Out came the Dyson. I turned on the switch. Dust, leaves, Christmas Catcus debris, dead bugs, small papers, all gone! What a relief!

I'm not sure Mr. Dyson would want you to know, but I'm telling you now...another solution! He might want to hire me to test his other inventions.

As I emptied the Dyson cylinder into the recycle bin, I looked back at my porch, gave thanks, and said "Friends! Come on in!"

Happy Thanksgiving! And be sure you are living richly! marilyn
