Sir Sideney Effingham

DSCF4551

I am Sir Sideney Effingham
A pheasant plump am I
With silver suit of armour
And what’s more I can fly

I’ve bought a pile in Sussex
Near my cousin Claude
He’s in the Secret Service
Knows old ‘M’ of course

I’m Lord of the manor
Though it seems to me
There’s another in a castle
But that don’t bother me

I have this artist with me
Who’s quite good with a brush
He’s painting family portraits
And other kinds of stuff

I wanted Claude to sit for him
But this he did decline
Said that he was busy
Didn’t have the time

But Farmer John seemed eager
For Claude to have it done
So I have resolved to do it
What’o this could be fun

I’ve had a word with Gaughan-Smythe
Should only take a week
Then we can have a hanging
And you can have a peek

Happy Chainsaw Day

DSCF4393 (640x480) (428x443)

I’m a happy chappy playing with my toys
Chopping off the branches making lots of noise
But I’m being careful as you all can see
Playing in the garden my chainsaw and me

I often play with ladders climbing to the top
I climbed up this blue ladder for the tree to lop
All the upward branches have to come down you see
Then we can pick the olives from lower growth he he

When I’ve finished cutting there’s a lot of stuff about
But its a happy chappy who is climbing out
Of branches lying on the ground where they’ve just been cut
Now I have to clear it up before I cut more stuff

When the tree is finished it will look quite bare
Till spring comes a calling and green shoots it bears
Then it should show its flowers and turn a creamy green
And then in the autumn olives should be seen

Its looking pretty stumpy now but that will not last long
The birds are getting rather cross their insect boughs are gone
But soon it will start to grow again and then whoopy my friends
I can get my chainsaw out and we will start again

Happy New Year

Well Christmas is over the sales have begun

Now come the rush to the shops oh what fun

Next it is New year and bubbly all round

But the next day we are back on the ground

—————————————-

We all start the year with new resolutions

But what we do next is plan our vacations

To somewhere that’s nice and sunny and hot

Not raining all day or pouring a lot

—————————————

We work out how much we have to spend

Then do sums again just incase we were wrong

And just when we think it’s all sorted out

Up pops the Easter Bunny Ohh goody we shout

—————————————

Chocky oh chocky we eat by the egg

Before we realise it the inches have spread

Now down to the gym for a workout we go

Got to get fit for the holidays you know

—————————————-

The holidays are looming and then they are gone

The autumn approaches with harvest and fun

Now we have fall with fireworks then winter has come

All of a sudden its CHRISTMAS again  now we start all over again

——————————————

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
