Celebrate! haiku

Joyous occasion
She came and looked at Mom’s house
And bought it today

Powerful color pattern

What a great feeling to finally find someone who wants to live where Mom used to live.  A good friend of mine, now deceased, used to call my mother Merle instead of Muriel.  And now, the lady that bought Mother’s home is named Meryl.    Can you believe that?!   I hope Meryl appreciates her new home as much as Mom loved it.  Welcome Meryl!

  1. My name is Merrill… I’ve been called Muriel, Merle, Merrilee, Marilyn, and on and on and on… I have no idea why these names are so hard to discern… I’m dislexic and I don’t have any trouble telling them apart…By the way Meryl is the girl’s name and Merrill is the boy’s name… Perhaps it’s because I have a boy’s first name people want to make it feminine????

    In any event I’m glad you’ve sold the house…. it’s hard to upkeep a house when no one is living in it and even harder when there are memories connected to it.

    • That’s gotta be hard – having people call you obvious female names when you are a male! Other names, like Leslie, Madison, Marion …. can be female or male. Did you have a nickname growing up?

      Now I have to write a haiku re the burst bubble (gas man said she needed to replace the hot water heater and even though it’s As Is I’m being pursued!) 😯

      • No, I AM a female… it’s just that I have my great-grandmother’s last name and it turns out to be the masculine form…. 🙂 This gets more complicated every time I try to explain it! :-))))!!!
