life is just too wonderful

a post dedicated to one of my favorite parts of life:

-Laughter -

I love to laugh
Loud and long and clear:

I love to laugh
It's getting worse every year:
The more I laugh
The more I fill with glee:
And the more the glee
The more I'm a merrier me:
It's embarassing!
The more I'm a merrier me:
Some people laugh through their noses,
Sounding something like this: "Mmmmhmmmhm":

Some people laugh through their teeth, goodness sake
Hissing and fizzing like snakes:
Some laugh too fast
Some only blast - ha!:
Others, they twitter like birds: Then there's the kind
That can't make up their mind:
When things strike me as funny
I can't hide it inside:
And squeak!
As the squeakelers do:
I've got to let go with a ho-ho-ho-hoo
And a hahahaha, too:
We love to laugh
Loud and long and clear:
We love to laugh
So everybody can hear:
The more you laugh
The more you fill with glee:
And the more the glee
The more we're a merrier we!:

Thank you, Lord, for laughter.

    What goodness! Hey, I'm wondering what cameras/lenses you use? I'm looking into getting a higher-end camera and asking around. (Whatever you're using, you're getting good results!) kevin dot schellhase at gmail dot com
