I'm trying to be positive
I'm very near to giving up
The latest wall I've had to face
Is about some insoles made to ease my foot
Do they fit my shoes do they f...
I suppose I'm really lucky
That I can see the funny side
This being the 3rd pair made
Sitting pretty on the shelf
I hate to see things go to waste
So I'm sending out a plea
What else can they be used for
your advise is what I need
I've used them for door stops
For polishing they are great
But I'm really ready for throwing
in the towel
Even though negativity is a word I
No suggestions then? Thanks for reading any way.Angel4u
Dear Angel4u re your insoles:
Could they be stuck on as outsoles
To the bottom of your shoes?
And then as you shuffle along
You'll be cleaning the floor with aplomb
Or else maybe they could be used
To wrap around pipes that may freeze
As indeed they no doubt will do
Whilst into October we go
Other than that I can think of nought
Where insoles may have some clout
Unless maybe you could see your way
To sending them over to me

Thankyou turnip a bright spot in the day.
To Dear Lily and Dear Turnip
Those who have not yet got a grip
By reason of relative "newness"
Are bound to have some confusions
On almost every single thread
It can be quite hard to detect
What is irony, banter or threat
If any reply you'll regret
Some people are quicker than others
To pick up on one another's
Sense of homour, mischief and fun
That no harm is meant to any one
Many times I have got it all wrong
And with fears that have been life-long
Have waited for others to explain
There is no need for me to feel pain
I’m not too good at forums
Folk never ‘get’ my drift.
I try to put it over
But someone’s always miffed.
I don’t post all that often
So when I dip back in
I sometimes miss the meaning
Of the feelings shared within.
I often say: “Right, that's it;
That's my final post on here!”
But then I see a message on
A subject I hold dear.
It’s strange it never happens
When I'm chatting on the ‘phone
Cos no-one ever hangs up
To leave the dial tone.
And when I’m talking face to face
I’m always understood.
For I meet many people
But they treat me as they should.
For, interspersed with laughter,
Or gestures, I do find
That I can best get over
Whatever’s on my mind.
Please, please Turnip do not put
Those emoticons anywhere but
On this forum if you really must
Their winks, frowns and grins I do not trust
If I met you and one appeared
Lit up upon your forehead
You would not see me for dust
My instints I have to trust
Lily, I think I get your drift
Often to avoid a rift
I start out by saying "please note"
This is serious, or it's a joke
Which kind of spoils the whole thing
When the idea of it is to bring
Your point of view to the fore
Without causing any uproar.
Maybe I should contemplate
A way for me to relate
Things that are on my mind
Without resorting to rhyme
If memory serves me correct
We have "done" Shakespeare and Dickens
Should I take up Latin or Greek
Or just decide not to speak
Dear Annerbernadette thanks for your reply
I will send them you by pigeon post
Then back home they ll fly
I'm overwhelmed by everyone response
I might even have a cry
Turnip that is very good
Mosie I'm glad it made you smile
Isn't that what life's all about
Dear Lilly such a caring soul
So kind and full of thought
Try not to take offence on here
Its just a thread of hope
So I will go back to my little cloud
I will bless all the soles on here
Like mine they don't always fit
But there's always a use somewhere
I’ve tried to think of ways to put your insoles to good use.
There must be somewhere better they can go than down the sluice;
So sew them all together, making sure they stay quite flat
Then, place them on your cloud and there you'll have a Welcome mat!
Rrrrr Lily that's lovely ,with my 3rd pair Ill make you one too
