The King of Hearts

I just LOVE being a Marriage Celebrant!

Oh to be the King of Hearts, surrounded by Love and Good will,
Swooned by Music and beautiful words, you never lose the thrill!
Will you take this man to be, Your King and You , His Queen?
To Love for a Thousand Years, and live in an eternal Dream?
Will you take her heart and care for it, will she care for your heart too,
Treated with Love and Dignity, It will last your whole Life through.

I hope that I am your King of Hearts, As you are my Maiden Queen,
You are the one I was looking for, You are my Mary Magdaleine!
I want to travel to the stars and back, and never leave your side
And laugh and live and love with you no matter how tough the ride
I want to spend my treasured years and all my waking days
Showing that my Love for you, works in a Thousand different ways.

I Love to be the King of Hearts, I love to see them glow,
The Couple as they stand and say " I love you forever, so..."
'I want to be your Robin Hood, and you Maid Marion too,
'I …

It has been reported here today that a new Cut-price Cutter has entered the market in Portarlington.
In fact, this does add a new dimension to a 'Back-yarder' entering the scene. As you can see by the accompanying photograph, the business claims to have fewer fact no over-heads for that matter.
"Furniture is...well...minimalist" said the owner Big Mike, who asked that his surname not be used...since he cant spell it anyway! 
When we arrived, a happy Customer, Kamil, seemed to be enjoying the experience.
"I dont mind holding the mirror up while having my hair cut.......But holding it up for other clients is stretching it a bit " he said
Big Mike explained that "Our shop design has been well thought out...the retail section is seen clearly in the back ground. It is somewhat understated and has that certain  Je ne sais pas" he said.
Certainly the new hair salon has a homely feel. Well, if you l…

Song for wee Billy

Paula's Dad, from Ireland has been here for his annual pilgrimmage. Whilst here I started to pen the words for a little song. It has turned out Australiana rather than Irish. Sang to the tune (of course) of Waltzing Matilda.
Enjoy! ( I hope)

Wee Irish Billy (sung to Waltzing Matilda)

My Lost Shoes

I don't know where they went, No idea why they suddenly left
My good black shoes have left me bereft!
For years they walked me up and down the bridal aisle,
But now, well, my ( sole) can't raise a smile,
Where did they go, oh why did they leave,
Surely they couldn't be quite that peeved...

The Left  was my favourite...although I sure miss the Right,
I dream about them constantly, lost in the night,
Perhaps walking a lonely road, in search of a sole mate,
Always unsure, of their leathery fate!
How devoted they seemed, such supportive of friends,
But now I can't even try make amends

Come home good shoes, let me polish you in black
I'll wait up all night, if you'd only come back
I promise to give you an over-haul if you like
And even take you for a joy ride on my bike
I promise to never take you for granted, or treat you a-miss
If you come back today, I'll even give you a kiss

Where did you go, oh, why did you walk?
If only we could sit down and have a good ta…
