MY FATHER-IN-LAW My father-in-law's an awesome fella named Jim, He's a crusty old codger with a heart full of gold. He'll do anything for you, no matter the task, Has a great sense of humour, tho' sometimes it's bold. He loves being 'round people, the funnier the better, He enjoys a good laugh - but don't touch his lager! He's a master at tinkering, fixes almost all things, Give him a good movie and he'll watch the whole saga! He helped us a ton with this old shack that we bought, He toiled away months and cursed up a sweat, Whipped the shack into shape, even windows and doors. Now this shack is a house, no sturdier you'll get! He's a fine builder, fisherman, snowmobiler, too; He's got a new Yamaha - when he's on it he's tops. He loves his new truck, his boat and his camper, And I love this old codger - I just call him Pops. © ELR 2013
