Oh What A Relief It Is



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! © Jack Ellison 2013

    I am glad you finally sold your house, Jack. Now you have to move to a new place. I am not fond of moving. You got a lot of things to do :). Nice one!

    For every thing you leave behind something is usually gained... Like the peace of mind of: finally getting it sold has brought you. Invite Ron over for a visit... Or if you and Cathy get lonely... a few Trolls and a dragon can light up your days with a few shenigans. Just order them up... They'll come a running.

    Ron and wife Michelle will definitely be our first guests when we settle in! Bestest friend I ever had in 77 years! Big big hugs, Jackeroonie xoxox
