mother and son
we came down to florida to celebrate her 83 birthday
she is 83 years young
she is a snowbird
escapes the cold.
lives in her own home here for the winter
sings in the choir,
cooks all her own meals
drives her own car
she is a getting a little forgetful
and confused about details
'so did david come for christmas?'
'no mom he is coming in february'
but she still loves to play rummikub,
crochet afghans for the poor,
and laughs hard at a good story.
happy birthday bev!
