You're getting old Richard K
Forty seven years since you were born
We will take a little time
To write you this birthday rhyme
You love camping and lazy days
You think you are one hot tomato
But we all know what you really are
the ultimate couch potato
You've said you like the Howny Orl
But was that just a slip?
Let's face it Rich - you've been known
To get your words muxed ip
You like to mess about with boats
But your manouvers are the worst
You get in backwards
Pointy-end first
You follow Nascar and the Jarrett Crew
Who these days rarely win
Is it this - or your head banging
That's made your hair go thin?
As a lager swilling gent
We hope you don't fall under the bus
This happy 47th wish is sent
from the four of us
Jenny Vikki Lauralei and Kimberlei
And in the words of my father "That's it for a "Happy Birthday Day" today.

Getting old, from beginning to the end. The most important is the dash in between.
