Who Woulda Thunk It



Who woulda thunk I'd be thrown a curve Taking pills to relieve my stress The stress of moving, to calm myself down Life's like a long game of chess You make a move and hope for the best Experience tells you it's right Then all of a sudden you're thrown a curve A proverbial bullet you must bite Not everything goes exactly as planned Be flexible and ready for change It'll lead to a more peaceful and happy life Even better than fortune and fame Who needs fame, it's a fleeting thing The real blessings are ones you hold dear Tell someone close you love them each day Just like magic a smile will appear It's sometimes hard to follow this advice Have to keep reminding myself There ain't no other person I'd rather be Than this happy cheerful old elf! ©Jack Ellison 2013

    You don't know the meaning of medication, till you meet Dragon! He's working at the barbecue shack this summer... He said something about showing them a Real Natural Flame... Thank goodness Joey got accepted into Nursing School... We'll need him around here... Real Soon... Maybe... yesterday! LOL...
