No animals or vehicles came to any harm in the making of this story.
I phoned our Doctor’s surgery last week and asked if my prescription could please be faxed to our Pharmacy.I was phoned the next day, to confirm exactly what was needed, and was told it would all be done.
The surgery assured me, the prescription would surely be faxed,
and tablets that were all needed would be ready and waiting as asked.
I opened the garage door, not remotely, but by hand and brute force, that was me,
We forded the river, “ Go slowly”, gumboots and tow chain if need be.
Some sheep blocked the highway, the heading dog doing his stuff
Then a tractor, that huge beast, I knew it, I just had to be tough.
The wind had blown mightily all night, and a tree was blocking our street
Hugh with his chainsaw, with everything ready, quickly cleared it so neat.
Gumboots and sou-wester I put on, as the rain continued to pour
Finally we arrived at the Pharmacy front door.
Prescription for Jean, please, the surgery faxed it to you
“ Oh no, I’m so sorry,
the one they forgot to do”
Home again, a smooth trip, no obstacles blocking our way
And I guess I’ll do it again tomorrow, maybe a much better day.

Greetings from Jean.
