Humpty Dumpty . . .

Humpty Dumpty
Sat On A Wall
Humpty Dumpty
Had A Great Fall
All The Kings Horses
And All The Kings Men
Couldn't Put Humpty Dumpty
Back Together Again
found in western ireland
 one of my mother's miniatures
thimble humpty's from Wisconsin,  plus a large clay
below, a humpty stackable 
we can't always wait
for someone
or something else
to fix us
 to put us back together
sometimes we have to
pull up our boot straps
dig in
do it
my mantra
the cleaning, sorting, organizing continues

Very good point, Lynne. We have to do it ourselves, don't we? What a cute collection!

It's a lesson we all have to learn at some point - some of us later than others.

Hi Lynne It's like the song says, "Pick yourself up, dust yourself down and start all over again"

When I was little, I had a giant Humpty doll, I think that he expired from a crack on his really he did.
