birthday

Happy birthday to me,
Old codger that I be,
Never thought I’d live this long,
Think I’ll go prune a tree – (or tree a prune).

When I was born on April fools day (at home – 67 years ago) in the rural northeastern corner of Mississippi, my oldest sister asked my Mom in a very concerned voice, “Mama, is he going to be a little fool?” Little did anyone know that she was to be somewhat of a prophetess – large smile? God has been good to me – all the time, even when I didn’t think so. ec
