The Charlie Bravo Story

The Gospel according to Charlie

The dad is my servant, I shall not want

I maketh him to lie down without covers, I hoggeth the bed with the others.

 He restoreth my roll: he taketh me on the motorcycle when he would ride solo.

 Yea, though I wreak havoc when others would slumber, I will fear no evil: for I am the Charlie; dad’s  bark and his bite, they amuseth me.

 He preparest a table before me in the presence of mine other inmates: he anointest my head with Frontline; the toilet bowl runneth over.

He leadeth me beside dewy grasses, and waiteth until I do my business, yea, even if I am eternally indecisive as to the ordained location.

He casteth me into outer darkness, only to letteth me back in with weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth, as I shall importunately charketh to the heavens until my will is fulfilled.

Verily I sayeth to thee, she that tooteth not her own horn getteth it not tooted.

 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the Casa del Whackos for ever.

    Charlie and dad. You continue to crack me up. I am beginning to think that Takoda picked up a lot from the Casa. Even the short time he was there. Sure hope we can get together sometime so we can thank you and have a Charlie and Takoda reunion. Yes, we are suckers for crazy
