Happy Birthday, Beverly


Today is my wife's birthday. I hope she has a wonderful birthday, and I will try to make it that way for her.

I praise her for being such a wonderful person... a truly devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. A helpful friend to all who know her.

I wrote a poe
m for her. I know she will kill me. Here it is anyway:

Happy Birthday
To My Dear and Loving Wife


Oh! Oh me, oh my,
It makes you want to cry.
To see this gal so alive,
And watch her turn sixty-five.

A little she did whine,
When she turned fifty-nine
But the years have gone by fast,
And those days are past.

The years have brought gains,
But mostly it was aches and pains.
But, Beverly, don’t despair,
Remember you need continuing repair.

Don’t move too fast, go slow,
Take your Tums and pills where ever you go.
Wear your glasses so you can see,
Remember you are a charter member of the AARP.

This year also brings something new,
It’s more than you got at sixty-two.
Now you have got the proof in your wallet,
A Medicare Card in your pocket!

Joke of the Day

A man walks into a bar and asks the barman, 'Was I in here last night?'

'You certainly were,' replies the barman.

'And did I spend a lot of money?'

'You spent over $100', replies the barman.

'Thank goodness for that,' says the man, 'I thought I'd wasted it.'
