Murdo Girl…Why the fuss?

I’ve been feeling strange for days now and I’ve something to discuss.

I fear my stress-filled life, is not harmoneous.

I feel so out of sorts… and I’ve begun to cuss.

That adds to the feeling that I’m somehow treasonous.

Have I forgotten something? My mind is not A Plus.

I thought it would get sharper if I ate asparagus.

I know I think about myself more than I think of us.

But I doubt that even bothers me… and thus

far I’ve found no answers for my inner vacuous.

Hey! I know who I’ll talk to. I think I’ll go call Gus.

Oh wait! Is this his birthday? I can’t call him and fuss…or cuss…or discuss treasonous. But I’ll tell him he’s A Plus to us.

Happy Birthday to a man who has been a wonderful part of our lives for over 47 years. A second father… Gus.

    Love these family and friend skirmishes-so many memories to reconcile. And I do recall that Lav has had at least one forty ninth birthday-believe it. Advise that Arlo head to the nearest college.

    You know these people, Judy! Bob Brost is behind, Bill Francis is in front.

        Oops. I can see this now. It was just an odd angle. Once Patti pointed it out, I could see it is Billie. Yes, I recognized Valerie. You two still look like kids.

    Who is the man across from Gus? Is that Frank Brost?

      Hi, cuz Bobby! Been working at school testing kids and had a fourth grader named ARLO. Don’t hear that name anymore.

    Another nice poem and picture MG! It is wonderful you feel that way about Gus. Who is that other young lady in the picture?
