We received a late Christmas card in the mail from Bruce and Janet. I can hear Bruce reciting this poem every time I read it. It is safe to say that this poem will be re-posted every Christmas for a long time.
Ode to Bullwinkle by Bruce and Janet
In 2022 we did go
To the Enchanted Land of the Wendigo
After Bullwinkle we set our sight
To pursue with Vigor and Determinded might.
We got fly in a Classic “53” Otter
A sturdy plane that was older than Yotter.
We saw October in all its Glory
Evening Borealis told our story.
Janet ventured forth with her trusted guide John
The searched the bays both hither and yon.
Bruce’s guide Aaron took him to a bullfight one evening!
Clashing and grunting with falling trees for seasoning.
A bull and a cow came to Janet’s Moose Party late
Only the cow left, longing for a date.
It was a late night of quartering, making steak and chop.
In the end it was the Jaeger causing us to drop.
Janet’s aim was true and she didn’t miss
Bullwinkle came off her bucket list.
Many walleye were jigged onto the plate
Moose tongue for hors d’oeuvre deemed a disgusting mate.
An Adventure of a lifetime, full of laughter and cheer
Every evening was toasted with a couple of beers.
May your dreams come true through the year
Ours are granted just having you near.
Thank you Bruce and Janet for the hard work and determination.
