Scuff marks, cat tracks, and stains. I no longer could ignore it. The kitchen floor needed mopping.

Because I am hopping along on a cane, the Husband agreed to mop the floor. (My knees are alternating between being painful.) All I had to do was fetch the tools—the bucket and mop handle out of the shed and the mop head out of the closet.

Problem was we had no mop head. Sigh.

Snap! Light bulb.

I had the answer in my hand. The cane!

The Mama's cane, actually. She rarely used it to get around. What she did use the cane a lot for was shining the kitchen floor. She threw a rag on the floor and danced it around with her cane.

Yup. Like mother, like daughter.

I dipped a rag in a bucket of vinegar, threw it on the kitchen floor, and danced it around the worse parts with the cane. Ha!

I'm quite late this week for ABC Wednesday. As the saying goes, better late, than never. Which the latter I thought it would be for the letter M. Seeing the doctor about my knees this morning got me out of my funk. Thanks, Dr. B. Thanks, too, to the ABCW team. Want to read other M posts? Sure you do. Click here to go over to the ABCW site.


  1. You've Got a Dancing Soul . . That's Good.
    Be Well.
    love & love,

  2. What's with your knees?? Hope you are taking care of yourself:)Great memories of your mom:)
    I guess I better send you reminder for SEASONS on tomorrow/Saturday. Thanks for coming by and leaving a kind comment:) Santa Barbara and Solvang is really worth visiting! Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi, Jeanette. Hope your weekend is going well. Arthritis in my right knee, maybe the left one, too. Xrays were taken yesterday. I'll know more next week when I see the doctor.

  3. hello Susie,
    I was wondering where you were, sorry to learn about your knees, I assume it's
    some form of arthritis, so painful, I hope your doc can sort some pain relief out for you. I have rheumatoid and osteo arthritis so I can empathise with you ! Need any advice just ask Doctor Di... haha!
    Glad you put the Mama's stick to good use.
    love Di,
    ABCW teamxx

    1. Hi ya, Di. I think I've already used the cane more than the Mama. When I see my shadow of me hobbling with the cane, I realize that I am physically old. I actually gasped when I saw my age on a form at the X-ray place yesterday. lol. I'll know more about whether it's arthritis that's the problem with my left knee. It feels worse today because of all the bending I had to do for the x-rays yesterday. This too shall pass.

  4. Where there's a will, or a cane, there's a way! :) ... sore knees are not fun. Hope they ease off soon.

    1. Thanks, Widders. The x-ray lady let me check out my x-rays. I was surprised to see that the kneecap actually looks like a cap. I thought of bellhops.

  5. sad to learn of your discomfort, hope that it soon will feel better.

    Have a wonderful ABC-day / - week

  6. This made me smile.....but not at your pain. I hope those knees go back to normal soon.

  7. I like it better than a mop. Fortunately, superficial shiny floor is good enough for now.

  8. Ingenious! Sigh, now I need to mop my floor...

    1. I don't know what I like least -- mopping or dusting a whole bunch of pretty tiny objects all over the house.

  9. Well that works, I love the idea of using whatever I can to get the job done!!
