Today’s your birthday

Cheryl Heng is now a senior citizen ” happy 50th birthday.

In celebration

of George Wilson …

George Wilson is celebrating his 91st birthday today, and in honor of the big day, he’s written a poem celebrating the experience:

My Ninety-First Birthday

Ninety was special, like they said it would be

Now 91 is here, along with some pride.

Old age will catch up with you.

You can run, but you can’t hide.

For 66 years I’ve been running

Along with Helen my bride, by my side.

We have both slowed down about 80 percent.

Neither of us can see much

And we don’t know where our hearing went.

She has her walker

And I have my cane.

Thanks to friends, relatives and a lot of pills

All help to alleviate the pain.

We don’t know many people anymore

So many we knew have gone on before.

I feel thankful and privileged in so many ways

While waiting to celebrate more

Happy Birthdays.
