Tommy who was being baptized in the spring
he was born in May
he was the last of us 5 kids.
He was very small with a curl on his head
he had a mark on his face
that was red.
It went away
at an early age.
He does not have to this day.
Tommy was baptized at St Rita’s
down the street–
I had my hair pulled back in a ponytail
My mom is young
with reddish auburn hair
my brother John is beside us
with a blank stare.
I remember the day faintly
which is a flash in time
it was a memorable day
in my young life.

GIVE A HUG INSTEAD OF BUY A GUN
A hug is more powerful than a gun
It makes receiver HAPPIER
No harm done.
We need to focus with deliberate
What we want our nation to look like
How our money is spent.
Is it spent on guns or is it spent
People see no gun crime
They all use their inner divine.
No honking at cars, shootings and
or road rage-
Instead Everyone smiles with a wave.
For WE have found a better way
By imagining a brighter image
Of the people of the US of A.
WE don’t need to build a wall
For in the end
it will FALL.
We need to build Bridges
And help UNITE
All the Races with a smile not a fight.

Her dad was an ambassador in the government

Renee works with the lawyers in the entertainment industry
in-fact she worked with lawyers at Spelling TV.
Renee got promoted in a entertainment job out there
she had to wait till they fired the manager’s mistress with red long hair.
When Spelling TV was bought out
she had to train lawyers the nuts and bolts.
Her friends tell her a movie she should write
maybe an adventure, a comedy but nothing boring or light.
Best wishes Renee for a movie that is upbeat-
it will keep the audiences on the edge of their seats.

Grandma Kay just turned ninety five,
on her birthday in 2009.
In her nursing home her family was there,
Watching her blew out birthday candle without a care.
She was the star of her birthday show,
She blew out a candle that sparkled and glowed.
Friends and family sang along,
to her personalized birthday song.
Her son Russ played the guitar,
this was her best birthday by far.
She unwrapped presents from family and friends,
she was very happy like a child again.
Photo memories are snapped in time,
To remember Kay’s 95th Birthday that shined.

There is an Italian who lives in New York City,
he is a sweetheart, he thinks I’m pretty.
He came down to see me and took me out to eat,
we talked of a stalker who lives on his street.
Yes, he is handsome for his age,
stalker lady goes through his mail reading one page.
Now Uncle Lenny has seen it all,
in NYC taxi cab he drove tourists with alot of gall.
Yes, Uncle Lenny drove a NYC taxi cab,
A safe driver award plaque he does have.
Now we went to Tampa and I heard some ghosts,
He said he didn’t hear any for his ears are toast.
He’s sweetheart who thinks of me,
He left surprises in my luggage for me to keep.
Now Uncle Lenny still can drive,
He is quick and has a sharp keen eye.
Thanks Uncle Lenny for the happy memories,
it was fun and very interesting!

On a bus I did ride-
to the NJ Seaside.
Ten years earlier I was also there
with my aunts with golden curly white hair.
That’s when Trump made a splash
offering old lady a lot of cash.
Madonna was on her Blonde Ambition tour
dominating all of the world.
Now Great Aunt Mary and Aunt Joanie
did go with me-
to Trump’s casino in Atlantic City.
Gambling nickels was their bet
I did not gamble-had to pay the rent.
Tiny little red notebook I did buy,
writing stories by oceanside.
Writing on trains and subways too,
all stories still there, there’s quite a few.
Now in 2000 I when I went there again
visited Long Island to see my friends.
Went to Javits Convention Center in NYC
saw licensed characters who were cute and silly.
Yes this was the year I missed my plane
Year before Twin Towers fell in sadness and pain.
Would visit NYC again and again
everything has really changed.
The National September 11 Memorial & Museum
will open up this year,
residents will remember friends so dear.
Now my Great Aunt passed away
will have to visit the boardwalk once again.

Debra Ann with her stylish green hat
knows how to dress, I can tell you that.
Debra Ann is a real friend that understands,
she is the Big Sis I never had- she is sweet I am glad
glad we met that one sunny day
at Mother Earth’s Coffee shop
back by the tables with owner Patte’.
Debra was a friend that made sure I was feed
she bought me groceries and didn’t care how much she spent.
We have fun dancing at the Cottage Sunday nights
we dance up a storm dancing to the beat just right.
She makes me smile just seeing her
she calls me Sunshine and I brighten her world.
You make me smile also Debra Ann,
remember Bible Study where we laughed and laughed?
We ate pizza, it was a fun time –it was a blast!
One day we will go clothes shopping and buy clothing with flair—
it will be a fun memory to share.
Thanks Anna for being a Big Sis and a friend
You bring you sunshine again and again!

Charles who I had called Chuck
Had with me the best of luck.
Luck at the casinos in MN, Wisconsin
at the time–
I felt the angels all around me
A feeling of the sublime.
He was the first to be unconditional
And accepting of me
He felt like a great uncle
He felt like real family.
He felt I my cartoon characters
Were great as fantasy-
He said I would go down in history.
He was a very talented in the written word—
He wrote excellent poetry that I have ever heard.
A beautiful poem at his funeral was read—
The poem was outstanding
And words sound lovely said.
I will post his poems for him and share it with
They need to be heard by boys and girls.

Louisa who is very sincere-
She is someone that
Loves her family very much
She is very dear.
She is so gracious and kind.
She looks out for the underdog
and she looks for the good in people.
Louisa who I saw two days
In a row
first at Starbucks
where she gave me good
advice for me to know.
Then at art class at library
Where we painted a tree scene…
Louisa wore pretty orange dress
With beautiful embroidery.
Nice to see you Louisa once again
Nice to have you as a friend!

I get a call on my home phone
It is Mary asking me to come along.
She says to meet her at the bowling alley
She’s pregnant and really needs me.
I hop on a bus with bag for one
not realizing my adventure had just begun.
We stayed in an abandoned
building that very night,
We went through the
broken window with all our might.
Now the very next day–
We eat chocolate at grocery store and Tarjay.
That’s French for Target if you didn’t know-
now I digress, let’s move once more.
Time goes on and things come to an end-
I have to go home and leave my best friend.
It was worth it all the while-
Helping a friend who would one day have a child.
She had her baby in the fall
I came to the hospital when she did call.
Baby was so cute, cute as can be
She was the first child of my friend Mary.
Helping Mary I never did regret
As a true friend my loyalty was met.
