Chris's photos
O, good ale, thou art my darling.
Thou art my joy, both night and morning.

Bob Divin' Duck Copper sings the blues

For I've a diamond in my eye
Wherein all my joys and comforts lie.

His children came around him with their prittle-prattling stories,
With their prittle-prattling stories to drive care away.
Now they are united like birds of one feather,
Like bees in one hive contented they'll be.
