Murdo Girl…Just crowning around

35 is Just a Number

If you ask me how old I am, I’ll say I don’t remember

I only stay one number from January through December

I remember the year that I was born because that will never change

I  recall my children’s dates of birth, but not their age. How strange

When our grandkids celebrate, they might feel somewhat slighted

I sometimes show up two days after, the date I was invited.

My car year changes with each new or different ride

If I said that I remembered, you’d know that I had lied

Our furry friends age rapidly. Take every year times seven

Time goes too fast for them and us. Glad there is a doggy heaven

The cat is the crafty one. We’re sure that she’ll survive us

Her age? I have no idea. Each year seems to be nonpluss.

I think for grins I’ll figure out how how long we have been wed

Or should I try to figure out how old I am instead


No I think I’ll calculate how many years of wedded bliss

Write the number inside a card and seal it with a kiss

Lav is getting the card..thanks Lav

2016  less 1981..good grief time flew by fast

35 years together, and they said it wouldn’t last

It takes a lot patience, understanding, faith, and love

And more than just a few prayers sent from here to up above

I’ve been sick.. and Kip is feeling kind of down.

So I told him just for today, he could wear my crown.



Even Charles was cute when he was little

    Yup. I WAS at the gold crown Hallamark card store. Okay, will pass over the mean cards, MG.

    You are so full of talent,
    but obviously, not me.

    Thank you for the smile,
    it lasts a long while.

    You bring us such joy with each blog,
    we’re all lucky dogs!

      You have great talent,
      that’s easy to see!

      Not everyone is so gifted,
      including me.

      Thanks MG/Next Pres!!
