The First Day


Today is the first day of the rest of your life Make the most of it Everyone has a specific number of days here on earth But no one knows what that number is Best thing is to ignore it and live life As if you are going to live forever Your final day will arrive a lot quicker Than you thought when you were a young'un But if you can look back on a full happy life Then when your time is up, you'll be ready If that can ever be at all possible! Think of the good stuff, don't dwell on the negatives Everyone has them no matter who they are So be happy, think positive We're all sailing down life's stream In the same shaky old boat... ENJOY! © Jack Ellison 2014

Dragon said to say the shaky old boat on our lake won't hold many. Just him, some penguins, and me. Tho with that weight it's being bailed out. Grandpa Troll rows Dragon and the penguins once in a while... But the penguins swim along side or use Dragons tail for diving. And our stream. well, it won't even float our boat without running aground every second or two... Dragon thinks our boat is a bit shaky and we need a bigger boat if the world wants in. Well, he's getting closer, but it'll be a Miracle if he gets it... LOL...

Have a great vacation... and I'll keep Dragon busy... Don't think I want to add a vacation into Dragon's brain yet... He might take it and run with it.
