(It was Our Gert's birthday yesterday as we came home from a Danube Cruise.  I wrote this in her card)


I’m sitting now upon this bog

Completing here the Captain’s log

With all my might I push and shove

With all my heart I write with love


“I hope you’ve liked this Danube cruise

I hope you’ve drunk enough free booze

I know you ate enough free food

So Happy Birthday to you, Jude.


When I was young I struck pure gold

You’re still not bad now that you’re old

Love doesn’t ever keep a score

But I do and you’re 64.


You might be wrinkled, old and grey

But in this verse I’d like to say

I know that it’s a little rude

But nonetheless I love you, Jude.”

I knew that under that gruff northern persona there was a Romeo waiting to leap out! Something of a blend between ‘when I’m sixty-four’ and ‘Hey Jude’ then. Allow me to pass on my birthday best wishes to Gert!

I hope you ducked in time...😉

When misplaced wrath has run its course,
perhaps when she's no longer hoarse
from shouting, she will understand
that teasing needs no reprimand.

Ain't love grand!
I can imagine her response;......
How caring of you to think upon
Your other half in this thoughtful way,
And each time I sit on my own dear John,
I'll know our love is here to stay! 😊
