Happy Birthday, Mary!


Today is my sister’s birthday!

Happy Birthday, Mary!

My sister writes some beautiful poetry. I’ll share one of her poems today in her honor.

All I Saw Was You

Married sixty years ago,
Before the fire they sat.
She took his hand and gently said,
"We've had a good life, Matt.
Remember how, the day we met,
The sky was, oh, so blue?"
"No, my dear, I really don't,
For all I saw was you."

"Remember our first date, my love?
I wore a brand new hat,
The wind came up and blew it off,
Don't you remember that?"
"I'm sure your hat was lovely dear,
With flowers of every hue,
But I wasn't thinking of your hat,
For all I saw was you."

"What about our wedding day?
All our friends were there,
We had the clothes we'd dreamed about,
We made a handsome pair!"
"Of course, of course, my dear,
But I don't recall my suit,
I know a lot was going on,
But all I saw was you."

She snuggled closer to him,
On his shoulder laid her head,
He gently kissed her wrinkled cheek,
And as he wept he said,
"We've been together sixty years,
A couple loving, true
And every day I thank the Lord,
That all I saw was you."

Joke of the Day

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.

Congress said,"Someone may steal from it at night." So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said,"How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said,"How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Congress said,"How are these people going to get paid?" So they created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer, then hired two people.

Then Congress said,"Who will be accountable for all of these people?" So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

Then Congress said,"We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost." So they laid off the night watchman.
