Jack,This is wonderful, funny and whimsical. It also has a lovely message. Love it!
This is great - I love the elephant!! And a great message with it.
So lovely Jack! I like so much! Hugs :)
Awwwww... you are just the cleverest! I don't know how you come up with your concepts so fast! (I guess it's all those years working in current events!)This is really sweet, and so true of our human nature--makes me think of the Israelites complaining to Moses about the "miserable" food-- hello! Silly us.
I especially like the elephant too. I'd kind of like him bigger, but that kind of goes against the poem, doesn't it? Reminds me of laying in fields watching meteor showers. Nice times :)
This is a lovely illustration and poem to go with it :)
Such a cute illustration with wonderful advice worth remembering.
Oh, what a charming poem!! Lovely image!!
so cute, you are so creative and quick Jack you amaze me.
We must be on the same wavelength this week! Your mice are just a little more philosophical.

Okay we need to take up an offering for that good word. It's so true. I often tell myself and others," If we spend our time being someone else who is going to us?" This is an on time word. Thanks so much for you kind words of encouragement left at my blog. I so treasure your comments. They mean so much to me. Thanks also for your prayers. I have learned that His ways are higher then our ways and His thoughts above our thoughts. Just go with His flow. Thanks my friend.

Hhm. Lets see...Dear God, Thank you letting me find the joy of blogging.Thank you for allowing me to show my shabby and not so shabby work to the world.Thank you for the people who are kind enough to say nice things on my work, both shabby and not so shabby, of course...And most of all, thank you for the friends I have found here, especially those who draw huge innocent eyes and make up crazy words fancy enough for Longman to buy!I mean that from the darkest bottom of my heart. Amin.Heheheheeeheheee... (^____^)
PS: I am sitting here, just wishing I could be the third mouse in that piece... You are brilliant with both crazy words and images, Mr. Jack! (hugs)
I love this... and I love the little poem too :) Thanks for the lovely comment you wrote on my blog :)
There is a lot of wisdom in these words Jack ;)very lovely image and the characters are so fun :D
Great message! I love this!
Hello? Gee am I the first person to post here? Where is everybody else.?Oh, there they are, above me.... Firstly, thanks for not naming the animals Andrew .... heh.You know that animal bottom right just wants to be tickled eh? Not that I am clucky since I started my new injections I've been feeling odd though.I'm not going to say it's a lovely piece. It's better than that. It taps into us this work, havent we all done this?, wished we were better or someone else , and haven't we all looked up in the sky and looked at the stars.It's like a good poem in that it works on more than one level.Nice work Jack. :)
Very nice image. and such a great message!!
just laying in the gras... where i wanna be. great!
Such heavenly contentment! :o)
