On My Father's 80th Birthday


THE PATRIARCH'S LAMENT

A father once spoke to himself in his age
"My kids are too smart for their good,"
thought the sage.
"But my sons married swell,
And the daughter as well,
So my sorrows will grandkids assuage."

Already 80?!? How quickly time passes . Happy birthday, Jim.

Writing verse again, I see. I guess that means the tweed has cleared.

Very clever. :-)

It was good to see the clan together last night at the party.

Thanks Phil and Jeff,
Tweed never clears.

Unfortunately I had too miss the celebration, but I hope it went well. Congrats to your father.

And, like Jeff I liked the verse.

And happy birthday to you too.

Isn't it your natal day as well?
Happies back at you.
