BEAUTIFUL  BALI

ALL TOGETHER WITH BIG TED! xx

BEAR-TRAVELLING!

B  I  G    T  E  D

 

Big Ted's weeping

Soon he's sleeping

Memories of friends "mind-seeping"

Rufus and that fine B.T.  (Baby Ted)

'Loved it staying by the sea!

 

Lonely feeling

Bears "so healing"!

'Wakes, he's staring at the ceiling

'Dreaming of a Blackpool trip

Calms his nerves with "Whisky-sip"!

 

Friends arriving

"Snake-Aliving"

Car-life, loneliness surviving?

Magic carpet, flying off

Sailor's hat at Sharon doff!

 

Cleveleys 'landing

"Sea-and-Sanding"

Flight to C' was not demanding

'Takes his mobile, 'rings B.T.

"I am sitting by the sea!"

 

Picnic planning

And sun-tanning

Soon his fur he's briskly fanning

Baloo and his partner B' (Belynda)....

Having ice-creams by the sea

 

Albert 'kissing  (French)

Sharon missing

At fast drivers all are hissing!  (Promenade)

'Also missing Enid Queen

"Hotest dancer" ever seen!

 

Bears are boozing

Gin refusing?

Not long 'fore all bears are snoozing

Time for Big Ted to return

Great respect he'll always earn!

 

Back in Nor-folk

With the "old folk"

Jeanette crying: "This is no joke!"

Raise a glass to toast his friends

Warmest wishes he soon sends!  01/08/2021 xxxx

 

 

ANOTHER EASY WALK! xx

KEEP IT GOING!

G  E  N  T  L  E    W  A  L  K  I  N  G

 

'Travelled miles, but doesn't matter

Soon we're hearing Sharon's chatter

She suggests a "gentle stroll"

Body fitness is her goal!

 

Next day, yes, a stroll we're doing

Boiling hot, the sun pursuing

Follow Sharon, leader bold

Don't tell her I'm feeling old!

 

Tracks and paths, for Norwich heading?

'Guess some kilos we are shedding?

Stamp your feet to scare the cows

When they move, I'm hearing "Wows!"

 

Lunch break now, some prawns we're eating

Please, don't count on comfy seating!

Insects biting at my knees

And for "tea", some mushy peas!

 

"Not far now", my watch is boiling

Throat with water I am oiling

Fifteen K' and still not back

You can guess, of sweat no lack!!

 

Avocat and birds are chirping

As for me, some "subtle burping"

Feeling groggy, Please don't fall!

Seventeen K', let's have a ball!

 

Site in view, my spirits rising

Great relief and, not surprising?

Doggie smiles, he's in the shade

Only tiny walks he's made!

 

"Thank you, S'!", and soon I'm snoring

"Same again?", my spirits soaring!

Go and get some fish and chips!

Red wine too to pass my lips.... Amen! xx  20/07/2021  xx

 

 

SHARON'S IN CHARGE! xx

OUR PUSSY CAT?

A N T I C I P A T I O N

 

Anticipation, Sharon calling

Many Cyprus' walks recalling

Enid dancing, Jeanette smiles

'Guess we will be walking miles?

 

Sat-Nav loading, Norfolk heading

Sharon, needing lots more bedding?

Have you room for Rufus too...

And his friendly, cuddly crew?

 

Traffic nightmares, meditation

Soon I feel a calm sensation

Close my eyes and soon we're there

'Guess who's driving?... Rufus Bear!

 

Motorways, who's indicating?

Minus Ten these road-hogs rating!

Better on a magic mat?

Driven by a Pussy Cat?

 

Take a train, my neighbour's saying

For a gentle "passage" praying

Royal twits have a private plane

Not for them our traffic pain!

 

Sheffield heading, slowly moving

Of all lorries disapproving?

Two hours more, we cannot wait

Fish for tea, it is our fate!  (Salmon, Yum! Yum!)

 

Kings Lynn soon, the Wash is "watching"

All this stress, time please for "Scotching"  (Grouse fan)

Lincolnshire, nor far away

There for Rachel's Happy Day!

 

Caravan, we're just arriving

Sense of humour I'm reviving

Lots of walks and friendly chat

Sharon is that Pussy Cat!   15/07/2021 xxx
