A Birthday Poem

The 18th of November
A "mazeldik" date
Belongs to someone special
So don't be late...

In wishing her a happy birthday
It's her 51st, you know,
No wonder Cruisin' Mom
Has that special glow

It's the reflection of all those lit candles
Sitting upon her cake
She's more than half a century old
In life, there are no double-takes!

Let's hope she gets what she wishes for
With every candle that she blows out
Now don't ya'll forget to write her
And give her a birthday shout.

If anyone knows Carrie Fisher
Do share the news with that gal
Maybe she'll also give a shout-out to Randi
And they'll soon become great pals.

So, to our birthday girl, CM
Your friends in blogland say,
"Hope your birthday 's wonderful
In every special way!"

Happy (early) Birthday, Randi.

Ezzie: I'm so glad that SOMEONE took the time to comment to Randi.

Randi: Hope you don't take it personally that nobody besides Ezzie commented. You know you're wished good thoughts for your birthday and always.

What a lovely idea, to post a poem in honor of someone's birhtday. That's really sweet.

Don't worry, TP, CM got 22 Happy Birthday wishes on her own blog, including mine. Shout out to Randi--I'm wishing you a Happy Birthday here, too! :)

Shira: I didn't clear it with Randi first. I was a bit afraid she might not like the public attention coming from me... If she wanted to tell on her blog that it was her b'day, that would be a different story. At least I'm glad she liked it, and am glad she got many more b'day wishes on her own blog.
