A Birthday Wish with a 1-Minute Poem

Today is my good friends birthday,
and in keeping with tradition I have
written her my annual 1 minute birthday poem.
The trouble with these poems is you
never know what you will get....
but here goes.

A little birdie whispered to me in my ear
Someone you know has just turned a year

Thinking to myself, I must send a note
I decided to share a poem with my special old goat
with this special poem I shall quote

This lady is lovely, talented and funny
and her husband even lovingly calls her his bunny.

She celebrates not only a day, a week, a month, but much more
But her birthday festivities never seem like a chore

Today she shall be surrounded by those she holds dear
just remember how many points there are in a beer.

I take that back, because on you birthday foods are zero
So eat cake, cookies and butter and you will be my hero

Enjoy your day and do what pleases you
Even if it includes getting a brand new tattoo

Happy Birthday dear friend, you are the best
and to be your friend I feel truly blessed.


I was searching for that picture of both of us thin
But I realized we will see it again soon,
when we lose that second chin for our thin is within

Happy Birthday Kris!!!

FYI - last years poem

I had my annual talk with Himself this morning,
and he wanted me to wish everyone a
Happy St Patrick's Day!!

He would have done it himself but he
was too busy hiding his gold.

May those who love us love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping."

--Irish curse

wrong one...

"May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night."
--Irish blessing

Now off to Kristi's for our annual
St Patrick's Day celebration.

A Gift ...

The outdoor room has a roof...yay!!!

He still needs tile but since the tile won't
go on for a week or two
I decided to buy the outdoor room his first gift. 
Of course that's if you don't count the fireplace and the speakers.  Okay maybe his third gift but
 his first decorative gift. 
I just checked the tracking and he's on his
way to sunny Cali.

Does he remind you of anyone you know?
Good thing I went back to Weight Watchers....

Have you ever wanted to be the "SAME" as anyone?

You know what I mean, 
SAME likes and dislikes, 
SAME gray brown hair, 
SAME taste in princess clothes,
like the SAME Tinker Bell movies,
like to play on the playground, like to color in the lines and have no one else touch your page
or your crayons for that matter, 
have the SAME taste in princess shoes,
have the SAME favorite princess,
love the SAME cookies and snacks, icees and popcorn at Target, and when it comes to that...
LOVE Target.
We Love the SAME flowers, and the
SAME preschool, and we love
swinging on the swings....
the SAME

The list goes on and on ...

Well my little buddy and I
 are the SAME in every way you can imagine
(according to her)
and she is just delighted about it. 
We have gone over lists and lists and well,
we are the SAME.

I will admit, I am just as delighted
as she is about being the SAME,
especially knowing as I do that this too
she shall outgrow.  
This has been a very special grandma
highlight for me....
being the SAME.

Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr
(already in dance mode)

Kevin Costner

Lorenzo Lamas
(I thought he was a shoe in....boo hoo)


Bradley Cooper
(yummy .... the eyes have it)

Bruce Willis
(not bad for a bald guy)

David Beckham
(he can just lay there while the girls dance around him)

Carolyn is standing behind me, drooling
on my neck and saying yummy, yummy.
We need a life.
Who would you add to our list?

Remember....this is our Dream Team
