I fully accept that I often talk bollocks! If you want a more sane read, then I highly recommend Ashley's diary!
So, I will bid you all a fond farewell with (quite) a few words of inspiration from Dr. Seuss....by the way, this is an excerpt from "Oh the Places you'll go!" which is completely awesome....I don't mean to imply that I know Dr. Suess personally and we met for a coffee and during our conversation about the nutritional benefits of green eggs and ham, he offered up these kind words as a personal, parting gesture....I just wanted to clear that up....I'm almost certain you wouldn't have misconstrued my initial sentence and in any case, Dr. Seuss has been dead for over 20 years. I should shut up! Enjoy:
Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.
You'll look up and down streets. Look them over with care.
About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there."
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
You're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.
And you may not find any you'll want to go down.
In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town.
It's opener there in the wide open air.
Out there things can happen and frequently do
To people as brainy and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen, don't worry. Don't stew.
Just go right along. You'll start happening too.
Oh! The places you'll go!
You'll be on your way up! You'll be seeing great sights.
You'll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.
You won't lag behind, because you'll have the speed.
You'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you'll be best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don't, because, sometimes you won't.
I'm sorry to say so but, sadly, it's true
That Bang-ups and hang-ups can happen to you.
You can get all hung up in a prickly perch.
And your gang will fly on. You'll be left in a lurch.
You'll come down from the Lurch with an unpleasant bump.
And the chances are then, that you'll be in a slump.
And when you're in a slump, you're not in for much fun
Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.
You'll get mixed up, of course, as you already know.
You'll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact
And remember the life's a great balancing act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft.
And never mix up your right foot with you left.
And will you succeed? Yes, you will indeed!
98 and three fourths percent guaranteed!
Kid, you'll move mountains.
Be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
You're off to great places! Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting. So get on your way!
