ON FAMILY ~ Lordy Lordy Look Who's Forty...

Andy has bumbled around on this earth for 40 years now.  I have been lucky enough to witness the last 20 of them.  I wrote the following poem as a Valentine's Day gift to the Bumble 12 years ago.  It still fits.  Happy Birthday honey - I love you...

With twinkling eyes and a soft smile,
this is how I think of you

Your contagious laugh, sweet gestures,
and relaxed nature
are why you are my savior

You are warm and sincere,
with shy honesty
which is why I admire you

You are energetic and clever,
outgoing and helpful,
sexy and thoughtful,
loving and respectful,
(with twinkling eyes and a soft smile)
this is why I need you

You are all of the above and more
and this is why I love you

Rock On Concert Boy!

I would sing for Andy, but then the dog starts howling. (Never a good sign)

Andy and I share a birthday. Only 10 years apart. Unfortunately, in the wrong direction as far as I'm concerned. Boo. Happy birthday, Andy.

Just catching up on my favorite Bumbles, and this one made me cry! I love you for loving him. I think his 2nd nephew has a lot of AJ in him, and I'd be so proud to have a son like my brother!
