In My Opinion



I'd love to be an expert and know what it's all about!
I'd love to voice opinions, without a hint of doubt!
I'd love to publish books about the wherefores and the whys,
Books that people talk about and everybody buys.
I see that Maxine has her doubts about the books on slimming!
And authors who present themselves as not requiring trimming.
I'd like to think they're lithe and tanned and fitter than the fleas,
Because they keep away from chocolate, pink icecream and cheese!
But I've a strong suspicion that they're merely slobs like me,
Many kilos overweight, many more than two or three.
And what about the types who teach interior decoration,
Who give advice on decor right across a shabby nation?
I bet they're using an old chair that turned-up at the dump,
Merely because it's comfortable when the time has come to slump!
Then there are weather experts, surprised by the raging blizzards!
But, the ones that really take the cake are the Financial Wizards!
The knew it all! They wrote it all! The jungle drums were drumming!
But when it came to a CRISIS they none of them saw it coming!
Dear old sceptical Maxine! You've got it right again!
Don't believe the experts! Just be prepared for rain!
P.S. I'm not really overweight!

I don't go much for blog awards; they clutter up the page.
Nor do I ever give them....... I'm too mean!
But Darlene gave a list of all her favourite blogs today,
A list I feel should certainly be seen.
So go to Darlene's blog, my friends! The address is down below
And click on all the blogs that she displays!
And the accolade she gave me is printed here as well!
It's terrific when we give each other praise.
9. Rinkly Rimes by Brenda. She is also an Australian and is so talented. She writes very clever rhymes on any and all subjects with photos that are a tie-in to her poems. She is so prolific I am constantly amazed at her ability to do so daily (or oftener).

Find Darlene's list here:

Thank you, Brenda, for the link to my blog and the photo. It made me realize that I need a new hairdo. ;-).

Those first two lines are my personal credo too. If only my hubby would agree... Happy Mother's Day!
