Jack Barry who was born on April 17th
Born a day before me he was Aries all firey–
He was a great friend and artist indeed.
He took me to lunch when I first came
To the “Artist Hut”.
Yes, Jack had a studio in Flamingo Park
Next to railroad tracks where dogs barked.
He did all kinds of style painting–
Fresco he was known for—
I have his one big painting by my door.
He was a great storyteller and a U.S. Vet-
He had a very interesting life of all the people
I have met.
I inherited his butterfly necklace people do see–
When I wear it around my neck all sparkly.
Thanks Jack for being a friend to me.

Poem Dedicated to Jack Barry
April 17, 1948- Aug. 7, 2013
‘White Christmas’ at Christmastime he did sing.
This gift is a “1972” trophy for golf
I protect it in case it does get lost.
See when Chucky was alive
he hung out with Bing and they did all sorts of things.
Like boxing, going to the pool hall
this was always in the city of St. Paul.
See Bing went into incognito
never dressing up in a tuxedo
but drinking he never did ditto.
See Chucky stopped drinking but Bing did not,
He said “Chucky, I’m going to drink every last shot”.
Including the Whiskey Bourbon made in Clermont Kentucky
in the 31st Clambake Trophy I got from dear friend Chucky.
Since Chucky is gone the trophy has moved on
to many places like my friend’s Minneapolis condo.
I had it retrieved when a friend used a duplicate key
to get it back in my possession for me.
Then Clambake Trophy I did lend
to another longtime friend
staying on a refrigerator in Wisconsin “Cheese Land”
Now I finally have Trophy back again
reminding me of Bing and Chucky our friend.

Light bulbs flash and celebrity smiles
all for a photo in ‘Fashion & Style’.
Now at Palm Beach Today
photographer Sue Chevalier
snaps photos of Donald & Melania
on the morning of Easter Sunday.
Just around the same time that year
Melania conceived a gift that was very dear.
Now Sue heard the news and never did brag
she was not a squealer who makes money on rag mags.
Unlike a photographer who heard “You’re fired” with no tears
selling photos of Donald’s wedding so cavalier.
Of course Sue was not at their wedding
Sue was not near—
she was in Bora Bora
having fun times with good cheer.

I remember the day
I was sending off “Unfreezing Prince Emeray”.
I was at Kinkos and approached Bradley with my book
I asked him for his opinion after he had a look.
Funny Bradley has one of my character’s names
I met his mother Jean and my life was never the same.
I helped Bradley’s mother at the end of her time here
She was a great storyteller, artist, inventor and very sincere.
Jean said she loved Bradley and me and then she passed on
I bought Shieka pup for Laddy so he would’nt be withdrawn.
Now Bradley helped me out with Shieka and my Acura car
I drove Black Cherry for miles very far.
He was there when I bought Black Pearl
she is my new ride that was a miracle.
Bradley I have Sam the dog from the carnival
She helped Shieka and Shiekee bond real well.
Bradley was there when “Unfreezing Prince Emeray”
was mailed back in soft cover.
Since then I’ve put Jean in my Butterfly books
as the Butterfly Queen Fairy Godmother.
Thank you Bradley, for you have a kind heart
your generosity helped me get a new start

Pauline with her bright blue eyes
has a big heart deep inside.
She took me to lunch on my very first day
she appreciated I came to work right away.
Pauline makes sure everyone is feed
she always has delicious food for me instead.
She has two adorable and smart grandchildren
Pauline gave my Krendoll coloring books to them.
Pauline wears very fashionable clothes
along with stylish earrings that sparkles and glows.
Earrings are from Sonya for Pauline supports the arts
She believes we all have potential—
and tells us from the heart.
Pauline has lived an exciting and interesting life
she still has a lot of energy and is soaring high.
