The Answer to Being Six

Our whippet friends left this comment on my earlier musings which makes me very very happy because now I know what it means to be six. If it was good enough for Winnie the Pooh, it's good enough for me!!!

From the world's best writer, A. A. Milne:

When I was One, I had just begun.
When I was Two, I was nearly new.
When I was Three, I was hardly me.
When I was Four, I was not much more.
When I was Five, I was just alive.
But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.
Happy for ever and ever!

Thank you whippets, thank you Ms. Patience!!!

Mom says Pooh was a wise wise bear.

Gus said...

Muzzer says

like most things Pooh
This is good, and true
But it leaves a little bit out
for what good is clever, if you
never ever
Stand up on hind legs and shout!?

Jake of Florida said...

Gussie, we responded on your blog, but just remember

Standing on our hind legs to shout
Is what the Barkalots are all about!!!

Now am I five or am I six? I certainly don't think I am clever as clever as you are.

Belated birthday greetings Jake.

That Ms Patience and those whippets really know how to cheer a guy up! And, hey. Pooh is one of the world's most underestimated of all philosophizers.

Goober love,
