Almost Extinct

Tomorrow I hit eighty, almost extinct Those eighty years sure went by in a blink Here for a while yet On that you can bet Never felt better my life's in the pink © Jack Ellison 2015

This month my Dad turns 84 and is still a wild and crazy guy./// You are sharp as a tack in mind and in soul... so expect you to be around to continue the stroll... Toward fame and infamy an illustrious goal... Yes, you are still busy and on a roll... So Happy Birthday to You from, Dragon, us, and Grandpa Troll.

One gets old only when he stops dreaming and starts remembering! You my friend, Jack are full of dreams and for that I take away the "0" from your age and leave you with the "8". Happy Birthday my ex-Montrealer friend! May the Good Lord keeps Healthy and Happy for the next one hundred years! Cheers!!!

Where are you going? They don't make people like you. So where can we get a spare part? Exctinct or is it distinct? Happy birthday, my friend :)
