Happy Birthday to My Honey - Tues., Dec. 24

To birthday boy, Bob: 

You make my heart throb with
all new adventures
Your hair is still blonde,
with no need for dentures.

Bob's birthday lunch at Schobel's in New Braunfels, TX
You love watching sports 
and ignore my derisive snorts.
Ducks or Longhorns, who can decide?
Does it matter when we're side by side?

Bob and Susan at Enchanted Springs Ranch, Boerne, TX
I like the movies, you like to run,
but together we choose to walk in the sun.
I like birds, you like history,
both of us enjoy a scintillating mystery.

I like red meat, you like white;
a salad manages to be just right.
You sleep early, I stay up late;
to meet in the middle we must make a date.

I love mountains, forests and streams;
You love the ocean, waves and surf teams.
Together we travel to see it all,
especially to hike to a waterfall.

Bob at Upper Mesa Falls, Island Park, ID
I love you, Bob, with all of my heart
and enjoy seeing sunsets, new places and art.
Today was fun spending time shopping,
not worrying, vacuumimg, dusting or mopping.

One of the places we shopped today.
Now another year has gone by
Age creeps on up; we try to deny.
Through it all, we keep on going:
laughing, loving, life keeps on flowing.

Happy birthday to the man of my life!
Thank you for choosing me as your wife.

You are the best!
