My Mission

Made a lot of questionable moves But in spite of all my impurities Ageing lines on my time weathered face Are a testament to my maturity The years have taken their toll of course Walk slightly bent over with a shuffle But my mind's still active and sharp as a tack Never mind I'm sometimes kerfuffled Still look at life with a twinkle in my eye Happy tunes dance 'round in my soul It's not about who's got the biggest toys Creating the most smiles is my goal I can honestly say my mission's complete By the comments of friends on PS As a jester I promise to lighten your heart Be assured I'll give it my best © Jack Ellison 2012

    Beautifully written... We think a lot alike. It's amazing... My Troll book I'm going to name '1-800- Trolls'. My other book '1-800- Life'. I decided that last Christmas. If I can ever finish them, that is... How many pages should to into that sort of book?

    In my humble opinion, I think you should consider a series of books rather than one large one. I did a similar thing a few years back with some success. Whichever you way you decide, I wish you mucho luck, dear friend and I want a copy! Love, Jack
