Happy Birthday Ernestine


While I was at Stratford last year,
I met a number of pretty young ladies
while I was there.
I say young ladies
as they were all young ladies to me
and Ernestine was one
of those young ladies I met there.
I got and gave a hug,
and I am hoping for the same this year,
but for now, it is your birthday.
My how time does fly around.
Happy Birthday and I hope
it will be remembered
as being one of the best
with a gathering of family and friends
around to help you see it through.
This little Birthday poem
comes from me to you,
to wish you a super Happy Birthday Ernestine.
May the happiness of today
be with you all the year through.
Happy Birthday Ernestine
Love and Hugs
David aka Dodgy Dave and Vera

    You are both so sweet to send me greetings on this aged birthday. 21 again might be pushing my luck a bit, but perhaps not quite 65 give or take a year or two. The mind is always willing, its the flesh that lets one down - SLOWLY! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    Blessings and many thanks.
