Guess I'll have to introduce myself again to the newer members here on Lit. Have been here almost from the beginning and love...Love...LOVE LIT!

We took a small sabbatical to retrench and now we're back again to read, write and most importantly to Learn! Long Live Lit!!

Another Birthday…Another year (2014)

Another birthday…another year
To my surprise…I’m still here!
Eighty six years have just flown by
I shake my head and wonder why
The ole Grim Reaper hasn’t caught me yet
But I have a feeling, he’s really upset!

I don’t dwell on my demise
Each day is a gift and I surmise
When the Lord is ready to call my name
He won’t consign me to the flame
For I tried my best to follow the rules
The good nuns taught me in the schools

I only hope when that day comes
(Hopefully in the next millenium)
All my foes will have gone before
And as I watch them close the door
I’ll raise a glass and as I sip
I’ll politely say “Have a nice trip!”

Counting the days
Reading this made me feel both joyful and sad. Joyful as I think back of the wisdom and good times imparted by the loved ones I've lost; sad as I recall their painful process of dying.

Bea, it's wonderful to read you again. I remain close.

Your bud,
