Let's go for a walk in the park, I insist, The weather is fine, it may be a bit brisk. Stuck my head out the door just to be sure, A bit of a breeze, nothing I can't endure. Off we go, taking the dog and leaving the cat, I decide it would be fine not to wear my hat. This turned out to be a most memorable day, The so called slight breeze blew off my toupee!

Loyalty & Bought A Dog
Loyalty You can't buy loyalty, they say, I bought it though, the other day; You can't buy friendship, tried and true, Well just the same, I bought that too. I made my bid, and on the spot Bought love and faith and a whole job lot Of happiness, so all in all The purchase price was pretty small. I bought a single trusting heart, That gave devotion from the start If you think these things are not for sale, Buy a brown-eyed puppy with a stump of a tail. Author Unknown
Very interesting, I can’t find the author of this poem but it is strangely similar to the verses in my poem.
My Poem Bought A Dog Bought a dog a year ago, Thought id' be some company ya know. Needed some noise and scuttle in the home, Wife's been gone and I'm so alone. Thinking bout the trouble I'm in for, Cleaning up the messes on the floor. Feeding n' grooming, worming n' shots Costing me more then I even gots. It's been a year now and trouble he be, But I got more then that, I got loyalty. I got a friend now tried and true, Got all that when I bought Billy Blu. Author Eileen Clark My Poem Was written in 1994
Grandma’s Quilt With A Hidden Treasure
I got a letter from a very old friend She said my grandma's life has come to an end My grandma lived so many miles and states away I tried to get her to move, she said it's here I'll stay There was a time the farm was pretty nice In my younger years I stayed there once or twice My friend said there's no point in you traveling out here The place is so run down you couldn't trade it for a case of beer So I went there anyway because I figured what have I got to loose The farm is a shack on a dirt road and all I got is dirt in my shoes As the dust settled down something was becoming clear for me to see Hanging on the railing was a quilt and nearby her dog covered with fleas Looking all around this barren land thinking well isn't this just my luck Finding the right folks and do some fancy talking I might make a few bucks As I was doing my planning I spotted a tattered note pinned to the quilt It said, pull a few threads, in the lining there's enough for a mansion to be built Author Eileen Clark 2022

Bought a Dog
Bought a dog a year ago,
Thought id’ be some company ya know.
Needed some noise and scuttle in the home,
Wife’s been gone and I’m so alone.
Thinking bout the trouble I’m in for,
Cleaning up the messes on the floor.
Feeding n’ grooming, worming n’ shots
Costing me more then I even gots.
It’s been a year now and trouble he be,
But I got more then that, I got loyalty.
I got a friend now tried and true,
Got all that when I bought Billy Blue.
