Gold stars

| March 4, 2011

Okay— been cleaning/going through old files/folders,  and just wanted to share something I found…..just WISH I found the photo,  that went with…..

—I wrote this as a ROAST for my mother’s retirement,  party—, ,  We got her up in front of the entire group and read this,  poem and presented her with a HUGE glitter GOLD STAR (like a badge) and those,  HUGE HUGE HUGE gold ‘super star’ sun glasses…… HILARIOUS!!!!….to,  say the least….

Here’s to our,  Mother

Here’s to your,  friend

Here’s to the,  co-worker

Who’s now a “˜has,  been’

You work half your,  life

And just dream of,  when

You can relax on the,  beach

Or hang out with your,  kin

You work SunUp to,  SunSet

“¦”¦”¦two days a,  week

Oh, how you’ve,  suffered

You look so worn, Soooo,  meek

Now,  Mother”¦..

On a more serious,  note

You’ve raised two,  wonderful daughters

Not that we mean to,  gloat

We love you so,  much!!

To call you “Mom” is a,  credit

For the Love, Wisdom, Fun,,  Guidance,

Discipline, Smile, Hugs,,  Laughter”¦We will always be indebted

For you being,  YOU

And YOU being all that you,  are

We’d be,  honored

If you wear this GOLD,  star

Don’t look so,  worried

Soooo like a lost,  Pup

We always,  heard

“It’s NOT braggin””if you,  can back it UP”

Before we TOAST to this,  small roast

We brought the picture,  taker,

And some GREAT,  glasses

Now up all,  cups

Before she kicks our,  asses!!!

My mom is somewhat a shy person—so I’m really not,  sure where I get my “show boatin’ –mom likes to call it ‘show,  goatin’…WHATEVER!, ,  SHE ABOUT DIED AND TURNED FOUR SHADES OF,  RED.,  And YES…I did say ‘asses’ in front of me mum……giggles and,  much love……

You will shortly notice my “Terra Terms” – yes, I will make up words – but they are fairly easy to understand their meaning. NO, my grammar is not perfect and my spelling is even worse. If I can’t spell a word, I’ll just make up my own because that is the way I roll. So sit back, hold on tight and on with the show!

    Hey hey! Terra J!
    Were you heading west on 64 Saturday?
    About 1235 PM, I’d hafta say…
    The weather was mighty rainy that day
    This car turned off toward 264 east highway
    Please check that all your tail lights are okay
    Lest a police stop and fine bring dismay

    Hey hey! Terra J!
    That car followed awfully close as it conveyed
    Safety rules weren’t being obeyed
    A rear end collision would shut down the highway
    Higher insurance rates you would pay
    More important, you being injured would bring ALL dismay
    You’re a kewl chick, brightening everyone’s day!

  5. Tommy B says:

    Hey hey, Terra J!

    Cuz your smile and laugh make my day
    Hey hey, Terra J!

  6. Tommy B says:

    Hey hey, Terra J!
    Please try to keep those blues at bay
    I like your happy Terra J way
    I never want them to decay!
    Hey hey, Terra J!

    Maybe an adult beverage would help your mood sway!

  8. Tommy B says:

    Gasoline prices are a risin’
    Faster’n my salary…
    Might hafta give up beer,
    Er not drink so thirstily.

  9. Tommy B says:

    Yep, times are tough
    The economic weather’s rough
    An’ I ain’t paid enough
    I should prolly be more gruff
    An’ storm out in a huff
    But happiness is my makeup’s stuff

  10. Tommy B says:

    Hey hey, Terra J!
    Thanks for improving my Easter Sunday!
    Your smile and laugh turn skies blue from gray…
    Dinner was good and your family was kewl (way!)
    And the beers made me feel okay!
    Til the next day…
    Hey hey, Terra J!

    If ya cross the road in the middle of the street,
    You had better be fast on your feet!
    If hit by a vehicle, you’ll be dead meat
    A buzzard’s roadkill treat!
    For the cars aren’t gonna slow down or retreat…
