What did I say that wasn't true?
I only referenced the scamp in you.
And now you've berated my future home,
Out in the alley, out in the cold.

While I may have a taste for rat,
There is no way I'll have a cat.
And if they chance to whiz on me,
My menu will include "Cat-cattore"

You partially described my future abode,
For I won't be living there alone.
I'll be sharing quarters, it is clear,
With you, my friend, the Balladeer.

We'll equally share the household chores,
While living in the great outdoors.
Between your songs and my role as muse,
We'll do alright between us two.

We'll be on the sidewalks, you and I,
Out on the curbs, beneathe the skies.
You'll quote smooth verses you think up,
While I collect donations with our cup.

And when we've worked our daily shift,
We'll buy some vino for a lift.
We'll call sweet Fran and Lorelei,
To have their chauffeurs drop them by.

We'll have a party like cool cats,
With Mogan David and sauteed rats.
We'll toast our age, and reminisce,
And know that we'll be always blessed.

So keep composing verse, my friend,
Keep warming up for the time when
We'll be together, back to back,
In our custom-made cardboard flat.

Oh my darling LJA,
I'll love you even when you are old and gray.
I'll love you when your eyes no longer shine,
I'll still proclaim, how glad I am that you are mine.
And when it comes to setting sun,
I'll lay beside you and wish for fun.

I can see it, as Balladeer brings home the food, rat for dinner. After all he is the GREAT bug catcher...that does include rats, don't it?  

Sending some BBQ sauce for y'all!

ohh, my lil Lorelei - you are so sweeeeeet.  Is it any wonder why I am so content?

White Dove - Some people are more suited to catching rats, and others are more suited to being rats.  I guess 'Deer has the best of both worlds - lol.

Corinne - Now don't go turning your nose up at these fine delicacies if you haven't tried them.  After all, there are lots of starving cats in this world who would love this feast.  (And, BOY!, does that make my day - lol)

Your new home?  Your new home?  And you have internet accessability?  GREAT!  But if 'Deer gets to be too much for you, LJA, just let us women know...we'll rescue you any ol' time you want, including fireside chats if you so desire...[Yes, Lorelei, we wouldn't offer if you weren't in attendance...]

Fun stuff, this...

LongJohn, methinks you've got it pegged about right, my friend. We might be getting there faster than we think based on the writing on the wall....make that the non-writing on the wall. Times change, pal. We packed 'em in but vaudeville's dead, I suppose and, except for us, the dinosaurs are extinct. Ahhh, progress.....
