Hey, does winter got you down?
Are you walking around with a frown?
Do you need a good laugh and smile?
Well so do I, so lets laugh and talk and walk a mile...

Belly Laugh…


Boy do I feel like laughing,

I really do need to let out a hee haw,

Of late I have had a cold or allergy,

My water line on my camper did also freeze,

Had to under the camper crawl…


It’s been a bit of a bad week,

But surprisingly I have just taken it in stride,

Next week I do get to see an old friend become a bride,

I really do need a good old belly laugh,

One I can feel from deep down inside…


The snow does again cover us up,

The weather is again cold and cloudy,

Expecting more wet the beginning of the week,

Used to be this future forecast would make me weak,

Just have to live with it, no reason to out freak…


Rufuz is happy in the snow,

He seems to smell things when on the wind it does blow,

Happy he is to play with his daddy,

Chasing snowballs like a wintertime caddy…


So please allow me to laugh quite heartily,

Allow me to see that humor is what I have got and be silly,

Allow me to have a great big belly laugh while I am as well chilly,

Won’t be long from now, before from the ground we start to see lilies…

I love winter when we get one. Only had a couple of hours of light snow.
A lovely tranquillity in winter.

em... hmmm.. interesting how you juxtaposed that wedding with your need for a 'good old belly laugh'... Good grief, Eddie M, promise me you aren't planning to guffaw and snicker loudly throughout the ceremony. Egads!

Never ask permission to laugh or giggle or smile or grin or to do anything happy... JUST DO IT! (except during the wedding... ahem!)

"out freak…" this was my favorite phrasing here. This is what makes you uniqe and so creative. You plant words where others fear to grow and VOILA! out springs imagination and pure Eddie M delights. Now go forth and be merry!!! (I do!) hehehe.... I love this... katy xox
