For Laughing Out Loud
~*Marge Tindal*~

Trying to think of just what
I could write upon this day
Suddenly I had a memory
that said what I wanted to say~

It happened o' so long ago
you'd think one would forget
But as I burst out in gales of laughter
you'll know I haven't yet~

The night was Halloween
the year -who counts those things ?
'Big Sister' dressed you up in rags
and painted your hair braids green !

Well that was not enough you see
so 'Big Sis' proceed to
paint each one with food coloring
in the loveliest of RAINBOW hues~

Many 'Trick Or Treats' later
a shampoo before bed
Oh, my gosh, don't tell Mom
but, you've got a banty-colored head !

Whew !  I think I got my fanny painted,
at least as red as my face
And two applications of Marchand's later
you were no longer a family disgrace !


*Happy Birthday with love, Nedra Lynn*
~You grew up okay, in spite of it~

You were the big sis?  You're bad, Marge.  Happy B'day, Nedra...even though your big sis didn't come to my b'day party.
Rainbow braids...what an image!

LOL! Brings back memories of my sister and some of our tricks. We were bad. Very bad.
One of our specialties was making "cupcakes" for our neighbor. Made up of snails, and doggie doo things. *coughing in remembrance*.
Of course they were not eaten. It only made it as far as the fence. Bad... very bad.
Hope your sis had a nice birthday.

(smiles) Oh Marge, this is sooooooo beautiful and filled with cheer and sweet memories! (big hugggssssss) I know just how that is; my cousin dyed his hair blue and when he jumped in a swimming pool it turned turquoise! (winks) Such sweet and innocent memories pouring from your golden heart! (big hugggssssss) You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Marge, thank you for sharing!

May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Your sister shares a birthday with my sister... who was born on our mother's birthday! *S* So please tell Nedra Happy Birthday for me... I'm sure she somehow escaped my family. *G*

And the next time my sister nags me over some (imagined, of course *G*) grief I gave her, I'll show her this and remind her it could have been worse! LOL.

I enjoyed this, Marge. *S*

This is a very good poem. It must be nice to have a big sister. I was the oldest of three. So, I was the big sister. Hope your sister had a nice birthday.

Marge - Thankyou for bringing me memories of my own. My "big sister" and I still manage to get into trouble.....just "tiny trouble." Not from our parents who have since passed over, but from our spouses who give in to our innocent giggles and forget about the reprimand. Be well sweet lady. Chris  

Life is not measured by breaths you take, but by moments that take your breath away.

Walt~ BloomingRose~ Noah~ SuthernGal~ StarTime~ SmartChick~ Dee~ Titia~ and NightShade~

You ALL are very funny AND revealing, I might add~

My life was blessed with a couple of younger step-up sisters ...
Nedra was of flaxen-blonde hair ...
I never realized that food-coloring wouldn't wash out~ LOL ~

Truthfully ?  When I combed her hair ... I thought it was beautiful in it's array of colors~
Today ... it's Vogue ... then it wasn't ! !
She laughed at this remember this morning~

Thanks everyone for smiling with us~
*Hugs*

Oh Marge!! This is too funny!!  It reminded me of the time I dyed my sister's hair green...by accident, she was 16 at the time...oh hahahaaa!!  She could only go out in the NIGHT SHADE for awhile.  (didn't want to say her name out loud!)     Yes,,,we still get into messes even though we are probably past the age where most people think we should.  Oh, I just realized how long this is..sorry.

Good one Marge!!  Love ya, Nancy
