As most days go, this one's a winner
Think I'll go out and get soused
After two long years hoping and praying
We finally have sold our house!
It wasn't a matter of price it seems
Location was definitely why
It took this extremely extra long time
But finally a buyer came by!
Advice to those who are thinking of selling
Patience is definitely a must
There's supposedly a buyer for every house
But “For Sale” signs can start to rust!
Dear Cathie and I are over the moon
The relief is showing on our face
Stress was getting too much to deal with
To keep it a spic and span place!
We can now go back to our slovenly ways
With dirty dishes piled up high
Mountains of clothes strewn round each room
On the walls, bits of blueberry pie!
Gonna miss the peace and quiet of the country
Fields of green wherever you look
But mostly gonna miss my best buddy Ron
He'll always be number one in my book!
