Reaching The Final Bell



Trying real hard to be silly again Gonna give it another try What do they call a guy named Jack A guy with love in his eye See it didn't work, tried really hard Love of life is what it is At my advanced age, one appreciates The joys that life has to give No matter where happiness comes from It's forever on display Could be a cashier at the local market Wishing you have good day Maybe a simple kiss and a hug When friends come over to visit Or a kiss from a little wee grandchild Incomparable, so exquisite Perhaps now you'll finally understand What I'm trying real hard to say It's those sweet adorable moments in life That occur every single day Those moments, those special moments They sometimes whiz right by Before you realize, HEY! That was one Damn well failed to recognize Certainly no crime, certainly no foul A similar tale we all tell With human frailties we stumble along Till we reach that final bell! © Jack Ellison 2013

    I had a bell installed by the Trolls...to call everyone in for supper, last week. We call it the final bell! Anyone who doesn't come... gets left overs... The good stuff goes first!... They've learned not to stumble along! Or they might miss dessert... This week it's yummy Brownies, covered in ice cream and topped with chocolate syrup... Grandpa Troll taught one of the Trolls how to make them... Now you might say he's going Troll Wild!... in the kitchen... Might have to diet next week!... LOL
