On that beautiful morn when our dear Jack appeared...They thought he looked perfect now if he just had a beard....they thought and they thunk....they went out and got drunk...and decided to have his middle name byard

My middle name was Sue... Sounds a bit like callin the pigs- it's true... And Carol's not my cup of tea, too... It's Dragon's Mama I want to be- you see... Not old fashioned names that used to be... But if you like those names it's OK with me...
