G'day Mate



A friend of mine has just joined the Soup She's glowing, overwhelmed and delighted Her screen name is Miss Wattle so you know Drop by, she'll be over the moon excited Known her a while, this Australian lass So talented in so many endeavours The voice of an angel and a sweetheart to boot Never known such a talent, not ever Her heart is warm with Australian charm Must be something in the water down under Their love of life is second to none It's filled with great joy and wonder If you've never had the joy of knowing an Aussie Here's your chance, make it a date Known as Miss Wattle, a very sweet lady She'll greet you with a “G'day mate!” © Jack Ellison 2013

    OhOh! Dragon is getting jealous. He thought he was top of your list... Silly Dragon! He's introducing a new friend. What do you mean? What about the Old ones?... You're still young... You're not old enough to be an OLD friend... And she's probably a sweety pie. You'd probably love to meet her... No! Put the barbecue sauce down! Sweetie pie does NOT mean you can eat her! Sheesh... I'll read you some of her poetry later... You need to make more friends... NOT eat them...Silly Dragon... LOL

    She's a charming writer. She's almost like the female version of you with her charming & humorous style. Good call on this. =)
