I Remember?

     As you all know I recently celebrated had a birthday, and along with age comes certain changes to the body and mind and here is just a bit of a clue as to what you may expect. This is especially meant for my sister and brother(twins) Denise and Dennis, who are enjoying a birthday today..Happy Birthday to you two old buzzards.

     Vacation starts Saturday, expect intermittent postings, at best,  for the next week.

I Remember?

The past seems as clear,

as this morning’s sunrise,

all the names, the places and times.

And, as if they were near,

the old voices arise,

and whisper in ‘Nursery Rhymes’.

But, I don’t recall,

the breakfast I ate,

after that sunrise today.

Wasn’t there someone to call?

What is the date?

And where do I live, anyway?

    I can totally relate! Scary.

    I’m going to miss you this week as I only have 1 bonus day which is Saturday (tomorrow). Please have a great time on your vacation. If you do get the urge to create a limerick, rhyme or sonnet please remember the effort I make everyday to walk into the easiest job on the planet, because of two people who abhor one another!!!
