Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!


Today is your day.

You’re off to Great Places!

You’re off and away!”

So wrote Dr. Suess.

With some apologies to the nimble wordsmith, I offer the following:

Pictures of birthday surprises were needed.

As our 60th year was here, firmly seated.

The ask for some photos went out to you all.

Jeni Smith was the first to answer the call.

Now a photo of Penni with Geff by her side

(her partner in crime of things far and wide)

Shows the Bosporus and Istanbul closely behind

Where they sit with their drinks and coolly unwind.

Seems the 60s are great and can only get better.

So I’ll add once again in this email type letter,

Send me your photos, please send them, oh do.

So we see how these “60s” are treating you, too.

“Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!

There are points to be scored, There are games to be won.

And the magical things you can do with that ball

will make you the winning-est winner of all.”
