The Big Picture

Got Ben? Part II

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?" (
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.  

Ben and Mom Dot--great friends.

Pertaining to making huge cash flow, it can be virtually important to incorporate some reasonable volume of site visitors for a internet site daily. You'll want to develop a number of unfilled stop involving hysterical spots including more than 200 by simply 125 along with 120 by simply 800 pixels.
