W is for Water Heater




































Do you like cold showers?
Or boiling water for hours?
Here's a thought that's sweeter,
'Energy efficient water heater.'

  2. I don't like replacing my water heater.
    I don't like messing with it either.
    The entire situation can get expensive
    So lately I've been somewhat apprehensive.

  5. Wow, Lee can rhyme!
    I like super hot showers in the winter, cold ones in the summer.

    1. Lee can definitely rhyme... now I'm wondering why we never see poetry at his place?

      Cold showers? No.

    2. I always try to leave a rhyming comment at Pat Hatt's site. I done a few poems on my own blog, but it's been rare. And they've probably been overly serious.

  6. Need a warm shower and not one of those stupid water saving, take forever to get the soap out, ones with less power.

    1. Water saver, no.
      Soap has to go.
      It can't take forever,
      Once I turn the lever.

  7. We set our hot water temp pretty low so as not to ever have a chance of burning hot. And I have a little one gallon hot water tank and a faucet on my sink that is hot enough to make a cup of tea. Great little gadget and saves running lots of water to get it hot.

    1. That is a smart idea. I could use that myself.

  8. Thanks for the visit, Dixie, re the poem - I forgot to mention that it really happened as I described, so the poem wasn't difficult to write :0)

  10. Very good point! I prefer warm showers for sure. :)

    Thanks for writing the poem on my blog! It made me smile. You've inspired me. Maybe I will give it another go.

    1. Hi Karen - my pleasure. I love a fun challenge! The AABBA pattern can be tough... you're did very well, yourself! However, it's more fun to make people smile. (smile).

  11. We turned our water heater years ago when the kids were small and haven't adjusted it since. I think it could stand to go up just a bit, but then so will our utility cost. So, I think keeping it where it is, is the most practical. Our water heater is getting pretty old. I hope it continues to hold up.

    1. You have the same concerns that I have. You know, Cathy, all the blogs that did music for the A-Z fascinated me. I cannot wait to see what you do with 'Z'. You've been my favorite!!

    1. I love a nice warm, tub bath, once in a while, with some Nefertiti foaming salts.
