There are good ships, and there are wood ships, 
The ships that sail the sea. 
But the best ships, are friendships, 
And may they always be.

A toast! A toast!
To all of Blogville a toast!

I wish you health, I wish you well, 
and happiness galore.
I wish you luck for you and friends; 
what could I wish you more?
May your joys be as deep as the oceans,
 your troubles as light as its foam.
And may you find, sweet peace of mind, 
where ever you may roam.


We are the PugRanch Kids
