Love And Laughter



The funnies are stealing back into my soul They've never really strayed very far Both love and laughter make a great pair It's the place I latch on to my star Laughing they say is good for your ticker Got a pretty strong heart this old man From first light of day till the very last glimmer Love and laughter go hand in hand Makes the world spin, well certainly mine Sometimes have a tendency to get down With uncontrollable things that happen in life Smile brightly and banish the frowns Just tell yourself a silly old groaner But try hard to keep a straight face People around you will slowly back away And quietly give you some space The funnies are back but not all the way But stay tuned and trust me I say Has this old guy ever lied to you before Let's not go there... just have a nice day! © Jack Ellison 2013

    I know something else that makes the world spin... Coffee. I'm wide awake... Two cups down... I think! Dragon says to slow down... Maybe it was 3 cups... Believe I'll have another one for the road... Awwww Grandpa Troll took my coffee away... I am NOT so wired up that I'm running in circles... Honest! Well maybe a little... Can some one stop me from circling Dragon? I'm getting dizzy... Dragon said he'd straighten me out with a good run... There's that puff of smoke... And we're off!"... LOL
