A year in review……..

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!

  1. 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

    1. 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!

    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

    1. 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

    1. 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).

  4. 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.

    1. 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.

Your turn to write, but please don't be wittier than me. My ego is quite fragile.
