The Old Gray Susie Ain't What She Used To Be...

Hmm...let's see...someone has a birthday today. Who is it...hmmm...
Oh yeah, old Susie Q is turning another year older.
Let's see here...add 5, carry the 2...yup. Here it is. The old girl is 54 today!

I just can't help but laugh...here I am remembering HER birthday but
did SHE remember mine? July 9th went by without one word about it on her blog. Not. One. Word!


But heck. I have a big heart. I'm a big guy! So let's just forget about my
self proclaimed "world's greatest fan"'s indiscretion and move on...

I will now read a poem I  wrote for the old girl.
Ahem...
Today dear old Susie turns 54
The years pile up, she's turned into a bore.
Her hair's gettin' grayer, the age lines are deep
The hot flashes make her lose lots of sleep.
Her joints are a creakin', her back's pretty bad
She still thinks she's young, now ain't that real sad?



 Not that I am holding a grudge or anything...

You are too funny! Happy Birthday to you - you are still a child, believe me. The best years are yet to come - gray hair, bad back, wrinkles and all. All of the best people were born this time of year. Have a great week. Sally

Happy birthday Susie. I am a few months behind you and closing fast. I laughed so hard at this post. Good gracious, Brian is still hot though! Always my fave. Why can't women age as gracefully? Well...besides you and me of course... Have a good one, Pam

Had to poke my head in and say Hello here too!! Again this is funny. Enjoyed it very much. You are about 6 weeks older than me. Well.....6 1/2 if I stretch it out. LOL! I remember I first found you when you were turning 52. Gee, has it been that long already?!?
