You Can Bet Your Bippy



Do I love life, you can bet your bippy More than I ever have before With old age comes a certain tranquility Which eluded me in days of yore I now see this life as I never have before With the truest sense of fulfillment The trials of business and raising a family Behind me, the future looks brilliant Settling in to this new life unencumbered With a freedom never felt before A feeling of accomplishment, of satisfaction New experiences knock at my door Whatta life I've led, a charmed existence The envy of friends and loved ones Feel real special, one of a very select few Been a participant on an amazing run Do I love life, you can bet your bippy More than I ever have before With old age comes a certain tranquility Which eluded me in days of yore © Jack Ellison 2014

    Strange! That's what the postman said at my door yesterday... Plus wanting to keep said life! Then he ask me to pick up my mail at the office... It was only a JOKE! Honest! My son had the crickets playing Deliverance on banjos while the Trolls sat in rocking chairs in bib overhalls and shot guns... Tho the Dragon does like to give him a hot foot if he's late! Sigh! Silly Dragon! So I promised if he'd deliver to the box... That I'd send the penguins out to pick it up... Winning! Another day!

    DELIVERANCE!!! That was a very scary, weird movie! I once played banjo in a semi-successful folk group way way back! XOXOX
