Happy Anniversary



Happy Anniversary
to a brother-in-law and sister so dear
time has flown
the kids have grown
with the passing of the years

it seems like only yesterday
your wedding vows exchanged
both of you
with eyes of blue
oh how the world has changed

June ninth, nineteen seventy four
I remember well, your wedding date
a hot air ballon
in the afternoon
up up and away...to celebrate



Happy anniversary to
Marlys and Dean Abrams
my loving sister and her wonderful husband
they are going to celebrate with a hot air balloon ride tommorrow

Sweet Lyra, always thinking of someone else, whilst in the throes
of sadness yourself.  *smile*

Cool trib, MunkWoman!  and the hot air balloon was
quite a romantic image (unless you were talking, of course,
about those Wisconsin politicians....nudge nudge)

Take care, MunkSter!

Thanks so much, Sue...They will probably be surprised to receive it because they probably think I forgot b/c of all that has been going on this week.

Thanks Jeff...It sounds like you haven't heard my good news yet.  Things are looking much better and I'm not feeling so sad at the moment.  Here is a link to the message I posted on Announcements and links on Wednesday evening, Good News Today

No way...so they got married when they were five years old, hey?

Did I ever tell you about the hot air balloon that came down in my back yard?  Remind me to do that some day...a big black balloon with some strange looking white creature painted on it with some funny lookin' ears, and you should'a SEEN what came out of the basket!!!

Thanks Karilea...Yes...they might have been 5 or maybe 6 years old...but very mature for their age

Now about this balloon that came down in your backyard.....that had to have been when you lived here, in Kalamazoo...in fact, I remember it.
It was filled with giant, walking, Hershey's Kisses.
~ hugs and chocolate kisses

Thanks so much for your reply, Bags...
the funny thing is...I almost forgot it was their anniversary.  Usually, I buy a card and send it to them through snail mail, but it was too late for that...so, I looked for an e-card for them and couldn't find one I liked....thats why I wrote the poem!

~ lots of hugs
