Over the years we’ve had a lot of fun times so great,
Some stand out in my memory on a summary slate.
In the story poem I will mention just a few of the best,
That have stayed with me overshadowing the rest.
The Alaskan Cruise with Craig and Rhonda was fun,
With 7 days cruising and 4 in Alaska on land on the run.
The sights and excursions were all just the very best,
It was a great adventure that kind of felt like a quest.
For about 20 years, we took a nice South Fork vacation,
Each summer together with many of our close relations.
Fishing for trout was one of my favorite outdoor activities,
Especially using a dry fly flipping upstream with ease.
At South Fork on those summer vacations so nice,
We ran rafted the Rio Grande every day once or twice,
The scenery along that route was fantastically great,
We often fished, catching trout using spinners for bait.
In recent years we have had a family vacation at a lake,
At a resort cabin with all the grandkids making it great.
We have done lots of swimming and fishing for big fun,
Spending quality time together under the warm sun.
Lake Meredith, near Fritch, was a source of much fun,
My Dad, Mom, brother Craig, and l fished late in the day,
Out on my Dad’s old bass boat flipping jigs for Walleye.
We caught a lot of fish and often had a big fish fry.
My brother Craig and I duck hunted on Lake Meredith too,
We kind of mastered duck hunting as our skill grew.
Occasionally we would get us a stray Canadian goose,
Getting many “natural highs” as we did rise up to shoot.
We clogged on The Misques exhibition clog team,
For 10 short years having big fun like in a good dream.
We made many close friends that we did dearly adore.
Clog dancing out in the street entertaining and more.
We danced with the Rhythm Aces competition group,
Competing in National Clog Competition as a troop.
We made it so fun with some work and lots of play,
Actually doing very well for an adult group so gray.
The Mickey Mouse Bunch square danced all around,
We attended many events as a group of friends so profound.
My favorite event for fun was “Fiesta 1997” in San Antonio,
What a great time we had together there on the go.
I could go on and on, but I guess for now I will rest,
Having some fun in your life is an ingredient for success,
So work hard to create fun in life while you’re young,
To make sure during your life that your song gets sung.
Thanks for reading Fun Times,
