You can read it in the bath.
You can read it for a laugh.

You can read it in the car.
If not driving it you are.

You can read it at the zoo
When you tire of animal poo.

You can read it at the mall
After you have spent it all.

You can read it in the gym
As you exercise to get thin.

You can read it near the pool
When the water is too cool.

You can read it at the bar,
Or here and there and near and far.

You can read it with your honey
You can both enjoy the funny.

You can read it standing on your head
After the kids are all in bed

You can read it under the table
Assuming getting under you are able.

You can read it with your tea
Peaceful and happy you will be.

You can read it to learn something new
The lessons of the childhood from which I grew.

You can read it to help me out.
I prefer to smile than to pout.
My old van is dead and no longer mine.
That’s okay, into it I could no longer climb.
I need a car to get here and there,
But the money cupboard is very bare.
Raising kiddos is expensive, you know
Especially when from home they’ll never go.
I love my kids, some’ll always be with me.
I’m thrilled I will forever have my family!
But that leaves no money to spare,
To replace my van so I can go anywhere.

So if you buy it, read it, and give a yelp
To my family, you will be a big help!

  5. I’ve enjoyed your posts and would love to read your book. Is there a print edition? I don’t have a kindle and wouldn’t want to sit in front of my computer that long.

  6. Have ordered your book – can’t wait to read it, because I enjoy your posts so much! Best wishes to you and your family.

  9. My friend, I love your website and am praying for you and your family. I only had twin boys and one of them had a disability, but outgrew most of the problems from being premature. I can only say you are an angel and your family is blessed by your presents.

    Keep it up!!!

  10. Aw this is great. I will definitely buy this book!

  12. Hooray! I have a Kindle Cloud Reader on my iPad, so I just bought your book. I can’t wait to read it! I love your blog and am so grateful to Ionia for introducing you to her readers, one of whom is me.

    Who knows, maybe I just paid for the lock button on one of the doors of the new van you need? 😉

  13. Oh- what fun! I have taken a Dr. Seuss book and done this, so I know how much effort you put into this blog post, it is challenging to keep his metre. Well Done, Well Done! As for buying the book, hey, I’d love to, but unsure if I can simply download into itunes and read it there? Current itouch is not second generation. I know ,I know, I will catch up some time. still works great! If I can, then I will for…even though I can not read it in the bath, in a car, or at the zoo, at the mall, in the pool or in the gym. No, not here , not there, no, not just anywhere. I do so like this blog with tea. But, I can read it only when I sit upon this chair. Oh, say, I do like this blog. I do! Thank you! Thank you, Ap-ple Tree!

  14. Congrats!! I’m going to look it up on my Kindle!

  15. Because I am a retired outdoor humor writer, and now have blog that is more senior humor than anything else, one of my followers recommended your blog. And I am so glad I did. I have read a half dozen of your past posts, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Thank you.

    • From one humor writer to another, thanks for the kind words! I find life much more enjoyable when we can laugh at it, as I’m sure you have found out!!
      Thanks for reading and commenting.

  16. Congratulations on your book and your great reviews.
