Sharing a laugh from my birthday.

Thank you all (a couple of days late) for various birthday wishes and greetings. And, in the case of antof9 and bookczuk, one amazing "Ta Ta" glass, complete with tiara! It was a very nice birthday, one of the nicest I can remember. On the night of, we went out to dinner and a play with good friends of ours and my friend gave me a poem he'd written, all nicely framed. I got a huge kick out of it and (even though I'm outing myself about a small portion of my history) I thought my friends here would enjoy it, too:



TO JENNA ON HER BIRTHDAY by jpb




It’s been almost some twenty years since Jenna strode the runway,
Thereby proving one could win the pageant game in more than one way,

Pawtucket’s entrant, long and lean, would overcome her fears
And demonstrate to all that she had more between the ears

Than those who’d gone before her (and those since), all years combined,
Who’d won by bedding judges (or just shaking their behind),

No, Jenna proved a Miss Rhode Island might just write a sonnet (and still)
Prosper on the pageant scene while freely goofing on it,

She settled once and for all time the beauty-brains conundrum
By winning judges to her ways (and not by humping undr-‘em)

She’s come quite far since then in arts performing and domestic,
From FSR, to voice-overs, to cooking quite “fantestic”,

She paints a scene each Halloween and Christmas on her door,
Inviting all her neighbors, family and friends, galore,

They all file in to Capwell Ave. and vacuum up her food
From crème brulee to rack-of-lamb (it’s really just that good!),

She maintains home and garden right up to the highest standards
While she chases off the pests (including all those squirrel rat-bastards),

She’s even penned a novel, and ‘though it’s not yet in print,
The thing’s damn good and royalties should garner half a mint,

So, on she plugs with reading, writing (now, LSAT’s)
With Claude at side she just can’t hide her verbal expertise,

If psychics are correct, a right-bright future is in store
For Jenna Wims, the birthday girl, who’s this day forty-four! ;)
