Life's A Slice



In spite of my advancing years One thing always remains consistent My joy for life, love and happiness The blues are almost nonexistent Why was I chosen to be the lucky soul With this devil-may-care attitude While others can't seem to catch a break Every day they're screwed and tatooed Is it just the luck of the draw Do we really have any say in the matter You can surely bet your sweet bippy we do Betcha think I'm mad as a hatter Where did that silly old saying originate What is a mad hatter anyway Must be from the dark ages methinks Don't heard of those guys nowadays Okay, seems I've drifted a bit off the track To get back to my love of life Guess I'll just let the good times roll Jump up and yell, “life's a slice!” © Jack Ellison 2013

    Are you a slice of Apple pie or Pumpkin Spice pie? If I had to guess I would say you are a piece of pecan pie...because your all nuts...HA HA HA! Just kidding my friend! You are a very sweet man, whom I admire completely, and if there is anything that is representative of you within pecan pie, its that very sweetness! I saved a big piece of turkey if you would like it Jack, but you have to fly over here to get it...and before I eat it lol! This is a grandiose piece, Great Work!!

    My flight was booked and was all excited, but slept in and missed it!!! If you haven't eaten it, put it in the freezer and perhaps next Thanksgiving I'll make it down! LOL

    Mad Hatter... Was from England... The makers of those top hats used mercury in the making. Why they did... I don't know, but they did... Mercury poisoning works on the central nervous system and brain turning them mad... Hence Mad Hatter. Alice in Wonderland made the phrase a household term... Turkey day's over now it's the wind up to Christmas... Dragon is purring with delight and trying to get on my nice list... Poor Dragon... He'll be miserable soon holding all his Dragon personality in.
