Wild Times



The markets are having a real good day Which means I'm having one too My moods go up and down with the charts Wild times we're going through One day we're up on top of the world Next day it's all doom and gloom Imagine if we were all so stinking rich We'd buy drinks for the whole damn room Dream on people, that sounds delusional Been downing too many of drafts The only time I'll be buying the beer Is if I've gone completely daft So on those days the markets are up And your spirits are flying high Walk around with a grin on your face And hug everyone that goes by Coz sure as shootin' down they'll come And your gains will disappear You'll be dragging your sorry ass once more And downing a bunch more beer! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Taking things as they come I see. It's comforting to know that whether it's a good day or bad day there will always be the unexpected swap between the two. It's also funny to think of beer being both a celebration of something good and also a "drowning of sorrows"... seems to me you have an Irish mentality... LOL!

    The downs make the ups sweeter! You can write that down and let everyone know it's was Jack the Jester who uttered this amazing truth! It's also funny cause I don't drink that nasty beer stuff! Good trip my friend!

    I don't dabble in the stock market... rather keep my fortune under my mattress! LOL Fortune??? Did I say fortune? Hmmmm... there I go hallucinating again! If I was a beer drinker, I'd go and have one because of upsetting you, sweet thing! Love you dear Donna xoxoxox

    Beer?... Mine's joy juice with a touch of lemon! Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!... I don't dabble in the stock market... When the company went under (I worked for)... so did my 401K... I'm blissfully poor! But got on disability... So know I'm going to stay that way! LOL...

    Ever heard of "kickapoo joy juice"? Think it was "Li'l Abner" comic strip! I don't play the markets either! Big whopping hugs! xoxox
