I can't let the week come to a close without wishing my son, Ben, a happy 18th birthday. Last year I wrote a post called "Got Ben?" ( http://www.margiesims.com/blog/2012/07/24/Got-Ben.aspx)
Mom Dot and I even joked about putting the title on a bumper sticker.
This year Mom Dot pays tribute like only a grandma can. She's on a roll with all the summer birthdays at our house. She says she's not after my job, but I'm getting suspicious.
Got Ben? Part II
I still like his looks.
I still admire his style.
I still just love that
High voltage smile.
But to find the complete Ben Sims will take a while.
Ben is gifted at sports of all sorts--
when playing sports he is a standout athlete--
running with a lacrosse stick, he has wings on his feet
At passing a football, Ben can't be beat.
Ben's generosity is legendary.
He needs a sack on his back for all the gifts to carry.
Compared to Ben, Santa's not in the game.
Ben puts that fat old elf to shame.
Oh, yes! Ben is a poet, too.
When he has time let him read some to you.
Ben's amazing ethic
just popped into my head.
Push a lawn mower in the hot summer sun?
Most teens would rather be dead.
Ben just smiles and keeps on mowing--
knowing that his bank account is growing.
I'll quit for now and call it a day.
I want to hear what the others have to say.
