Moonbeams by maggiemae

Moonbeams

Would you like to swing on a star...
And carry moonbeams home in a jar…
And be better off than you are..
Or would you rather be a mule..

A mule is an animal with long funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny - and his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid with a - stubborn streak
And by the way, if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule

The lyrics are delightful!
Three Good Things:
1. Once more, making lists for a going away. This time where maybe no wifi, no cell coverage so have to take 365 the best way I can.
2. A family gathering but ex-wife and partner, odd grandchildren are also invited! I’m very good at smiling.
3. In charge of the TV remote and swiped from one channel to another!
Very nice!

Thanks for making a great start to my day - singing along as I type. Love those moonbeams.
You are off jaunting again? I can't wait until it is our turn to trip around. Good luck with #2 although as you say - you are great at smiling, and making others smile.

@kiwinanna Just up to Christchurch for the gathering but then on to a place called Orton Bradley Park in Charteris Bay. No wifi but rare trees and rhododendrons, picnic places, bike trails (I'm taking my bike) and a cafe!

We all have these trials to get through occasionally...will be lots better than you imagine...a smile helps everything!
Love those cheery silly words, I can hear them now, always bring smiles to faces & more memorable than the modern stuff! Love your jar! Looking forward to your travels myself...does it involve planes as you are coming into winter?

@happypat No planes, no trains, Pat - just as I noted to @kiwinanna above. Its Easter this weekend and we are going early and coming back late to miss the traffic!
