View Full Version : Better with age

Have you heard the news?
Oh, itís all the rage!
Someone is putting on
Another year in age.

Oh, he's not singing the blues
Heís just casting a new page
Trying to remember to zip his fly
Maybe he'll get a new Sage

Iím sure he gave Paula some clues
We wish for him a grand day
A tarpon vacation perhaps or
A giant trout on the line to play

I wish him all the next year through
Many a day with a tight-looped cast
And no riffles beyond those in streams
And great memories that forever last.

Congratulations, Byron, on reaching the grand ole age of 29 tomorrow. Hope I reach that ripe ole age some day. Hope your eye sight will still be good enough to count those cows.

Great poem and thank you. But, try 56 years old. Last night I went to bed with my contacts in. I woke up this morning and thought "I CAN SEE" only to find out what I forgot to do last night. Dang!

Have a great day yourself.
