A Birthday Poem

Just in case you missed it...on Vickie's blog. Bob is very clever and funny. Thought you might enjoy this.

To John:
Another year older,
Another year gone.
We all can remember,
A much younger John.

You used to jump fences,
You played basketball.
Now if you tried it,
you'd probably fall.

But remember and don't you forget
About the championship game
That we played on a bet
John won the title and Basketball fame
(yeah, I wrote this...not as good as Bob's, but true)

Your such a nice person,
I'm really in awe,
Happy Birthday to John,
A "Great Brother-in-law".

To Ellie:
Happy Birthday to Ellie,
You just turned thirteen.
You're one of the sweetest,
that I've ever seen.

Your name is so special,
It was well worth the wait.
To be named after Grandma,
The sweet "Grandma Great"

Happy Birthday Dear Ellie,
Keep up the great job.
Happy Birthday to Ellie,
From Lindsay and Bob.
