The World Is Our Oyster



As mornings go, this one's a beaut What more is there to say As I greet the world with a great big smile And hope y'all have a great day! The world is our oyster I've heard it said Not wild about oysters but hey I understand what they were trying to tell us Be happy, it's the only way To cope with all of life's ups and downs The good days and the sad Some days you'd like to throw in the towel But hang in there, it ain't so bad Tomorrow is always an exciting new day With all of it's promise and joy So if you approach it with great big smile It'll be like a brand new toy Do you think I practice what I preach Well I certainly try my best To deserve this opportunity I was given As I continue along on life's quest © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon thinks you took his advice and had some coco with marshmellows last night... It's his cure all... I wasn't doing well yesterday... But had to do some shopping... He came alone and filled a cart to the brim with coco mix... LOL... Then I had a migraine when I had to pay for it... But he took his allowance out and paid for it himself... Said he wants me back fit and trim... WOW!... Now wasn't that sweet!... He's a big softy...Doesn't run very fast either... (Lets me win!)
