You see, there’s this fellow named Hood
Who wondered if maybe he should
Write a limerick he shared
How in ’14 he fared
Then finally decided he would.
Now the year was kind to this lad
Scant few of his moments were bad
Good times galore
Was what he had in store
And for this he was happy and glad.
The fact he’d be getting more lean
Was one thing he hadn’t foreseen
And in spite of the wine
His health was just fine
In the year of twenty-fourteen.
When his dog died he lost his best friend
But he knew this grief he’d transcend
He got a new pup
To keep spirits up
So it’s worked out okay in the end.
His good fortune continues to thrive
Anything better he couldn’t derive
His family has flourished
Which keeps his soul nourished
He’s so thankful to still be alive.
So with this message in rhyme
Which I write at this juncture in time
I wish all you the best
And whatever your quest
May your New Year be truly sublime!
I meant to say, I like your new selfie photo. Came over here to see if I could find a version big enough to make sure its really you….
Yep, nobody else’s butt.
A triumph in verse as I would expect, and I’m glad 2014 was a good year overall for you. I’m sure 2015 will be more of the same and a bit better. Thank you for your support and friendship over the last twelve months from all at Countingducks International Corp
Best to you as well, Peter. Now that you are a conglomerate, perhaps you can glean a publishing company with a hostile takeover so we don’t have to wait so long for your novels to make it to print!
That is the subject of a current conversation !!!
Not all bad. Its just it seems to have taken them much longer to get the new book out than it did the first, but I’m assured it is not too far from seeing the light of day. 🙂
I just read a post in the mail from a gent with a wonderful tale a wonderful tome from a guy from back home Jersey boys always prevail
Can’t keep us Jersey boys down…..don’t even try. Thanks for the comment.
Love it when you go all limerick about the place. May 2015 be even more fabulous and rich in blessings for you and your family, Al.
Well Peg, it takes me all night
To come up with these limericks I write
But for you and my pals
It’s important that Al’s
Blog makes for reading delight.
You never cease to amaze……… Having had only one cup of coffee this am, my writing a limerick of any sort seems impossible…… More coffee and I will no doubt still feel that way….kudos to you Albert! Much love and see you in the new year to you, Patty, Sadie, and Bella, plus a ” we won’t ever forget you ” for the Queen….. XXXXXX, Marcia
We are really looking forward to seeing you and Rob again soon. Hope your football party was a success in spite of the result. Love back… from me and the 3 girls (and a wink from Queenie, I’m sure).
Happy New year to you and Patty. May 2015 bring contentment, good health and a good helping of fun through your door on a daily basis.
And to you and yours as well, Marie.
See what you can do when you apply yourself? Quite a fun limerick, and you summed up your year quite well! Happy New Year!
Back at ya Patti.
Do tell about wine and losing weight. Is this one of those “Weird old tips for losing belly fat”?
I was actually trying to lose some weight, Margie, less wine…..not so much. Did you get snow in Arizona?
Just arrived in Arizona last week, so missed any snow they might have got. Left Alberta in a snowstorm though…
And back at you. One of my granddaughters who has been living with her Mom is moving out to live with her old high school bf. Last I heard he left the Air Force academy. But that was then. Hopefully he got himself together. To console herself, my daughter got a new puppy, a German Shepherd. She says dogs are her new children. I think I am developing puppy fever again. My neighbor Eddie, who lost his dog Lucy in 2013 now has two new dogs. We are nuts about these little guys.
So true. We readily give our hearts to these little critters…..but we get so much in return!
I keep checking back to see if you made it very far into 2015.
Still here. Haven’t solved world hunger yet, but still working on it.
Well done Alfred! And the best for a rousing 2015 to you, Patty and the pups.
Thanks, Jeri. Maybe this will be the year we finally get together for some golf (backs permitting, of course).
To my very talented and clever friend…your posts, you, your life..it is a privilege and honour to know you..thank you for all the pleasure and joy that you give us each time you put pen to paper (nowadays..its finger to keyboard) Happy new year
You are too kind, Patrecia. It’s my honor that good folks like you take time to follow my blog. It’s been a pleasure reaching across the continents to you.
Its a small world really
