How to Get On in Life

"Tell me how to get on in life," said the kettle.

"Take panes," said the window.

"Never be led," said the pencil.

"Do a driving business," said the hammer.

"Aspire to great things," said the nutmeg grater.

"Make light of everything," said the fire.

"Make much of small things," said the microscope.

"Never do anything offhand," said the glove.

"Just reflect," said the mirror.

"Be sharp," said the knife.

"Find a good thing and stick to it," said the glue.

And that's why the kettle sings as she works, and works as she sings.


Such a pretty Fall setting with this barn

highlighting the scene.

Flowers are food for the soul

In it's day I am sure this was a great structure

with busy things daily.

What a lovely walk this would be.

Just love the little girl and her kitties in what

would appear to be a cozy and quiet setting.

Ahh, the Fall/Autumn colors.

I think this would take care of my chocolate

fix today, how bout you?

Isn't this little boy the cutest? Such big eyes

that I am sure do not miss a thing.

And don't bother me, just me and teddy having

a go at it in the leaves.

Be a light to the world.
