I took the bus to the village
Only it didn’t stop there anymore, and no buses were going that way.
The only road to my house was a track.
For tractors and mules.

With no bathrooms near by
I throw my golf club high
While I run to find the nearest tree

Isn't golf a strange sport

Premium Member Dude From Bude

There once was a fellow from Bude
Who loved to play golf in the nude,
Someone quipped "that thing, 
Has a hell of swing,
He sure is one well equipped dude."

A Bucket of White Balls
A golf club left or right
Depends which hand
You use to hit the ball
A bucket of white balls

Now all set to begin
Balls on the tee-swing club
Then hit-hit-try again
The ball does not move

Try again hit the ball
Now you got it! Landed on...Read More

The weather in July is warm,
Sometimes I wish that it would snow.

Presents under the Christmas tree.

The neighbors are watering their gardens.
