What you see isn't always what you get.
While this was
by/for a woman the
concept fits a man
just as well, so whether
you are male or female if you are one of the many who overate this festive season...
here's your poem!!
‘Twas the week after Christmas.
‘Twas the week after Christmas and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I’d nibble, the eggnog I’d taste
All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales, there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk more a lumber.)
I’d remember the marvelous meals I’d prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared…
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way that I’d never said, “No, thank you, please.”
As I dressed myself in my husband’s old shirt
And prepared once again to battle the dirt…
I said to myself, as only I can,
“You can’t spend the winter dressed like a man!”
So away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip.
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
‘Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won’t have a cookie, not even a lick,
I’ll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won’t have hot biscuits, or cornbread, or pie,
I’ll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I’m hungry, I’m lonesome, and life is a bore…
But isn’t that what January is for?
Unable to giggle,
No longer a riot
Happy new years to all
And to all a good diet.
Unable to giggle,
New Years Day Reflections.
Hey could there be some truth in the rumor that I’m gettin’ old?
Well I did have two Grand-daughters get married this year.
Well my oldest “child” turned 50 this year.
Well I did have eye surgery to remove a pteryguim (growth) from my left eye.
On the plus side, I still managed to drive across the country for
the two Weddings, which were only a week apart and only one
state apart (Two VERY big States though).
I managed to fly across the country for Alan’s birthday.
Despite my worst fears, I can still see out of my left eye, no better than it was but no worse either.
I managed to grab a two week vacation with Wazza, a great “tourist” trip to
Twice during the year my 1st wife Jacqui our four kids and myself were all in the same place at the
same time, the last time that happened was when Marcus and Carolyn were married.
Speaking of which, their oldest son Zachariah returned home from
there (Zac is 20 now).
Managed to get through the year without losing any close friends and only two cousins.
I am still driving the same Subaru wagon, approaching a record period of ownership for me.
As well as the immediate family I also managed to visit briefly with a lot of my long term friends,
my 2nd EX, and my Sister.
I have managed to retain the same athletic body that I have had for the last few years, it hasn’t
been easy, if it were not for the many fine Bakeries spread through the land I may have failed

On the political arena, we have a change in Federal Government, the first in 11 years, and with
the retirement of the

change noticeable yet.
Although we had a brief minor flooding of the

We are experiencing quite a cool start to the New Year with cloud and rainy weather instead
of hot and humid like normal, the seasons are changing with the earths warming and severe
weather changes are becoming more the norm.
