My Dear Connie,
Thank you for your guidance,
Thank you for your care,
When there was a problem.
You were always there.
We loved your ready smile,
And your flag kept us in line.
We’ll proudly fill out our report,
And tell them you’re sublime!
With appreciation,
Terry & Harry
My Trip with Connie
She started out in Canada
Connie was her name
We knew if anything went wrong
That we’d have her to blame
The Amtrak duly chugged along
Till one did hit a car
And then our engine conked
right out
Before we got too far
We laughed we cried we
tried our best
And said, “This can’t be true”
But we noticed that our
trusted guide
Still smiled the whole
way through
Our bus ride came so late
at night
And snoring could be heard
But Connie said, “It doesn’t
Just get up with the birds”
We fell in love with Branson
And saw so many shows
We hustled morning, noon
and night
Connie kept us on our toes
Soon we headed for St Louis
With terror in our eyes
When we viewed the mighty
We knew our next surprise
Last night we spent in
We almost didn’t find
our bed
But no matter what
the crisis
Connie always kept her
And so to you dear Connie
We’ve all had lots of fun
And we would like to
tell you
That you are number
Terry & Harry
