James's birthday

Happy Birthday your getting old
Never mind we will wear a blindfold
forty six aint that sore
I should know been there before
just failing sight and creeky legs
and we usually get left with the dregs
But hey just wait another few year
Male menopause to look forward to
mid life crisis will arrive
Flashy cars for you to drive
skin tight jeans you will wear
I'll tell heather to prepare
So today your birthday dont be glum
Sit and smile for what's to come
cause forty six aint that bad
Just think of it as a wee launchpad.
                  By Kate Mcnaughton For her wee brother James. x

    Tell you usbnad 46 is Prime Time! There are many fine looking men out there in their mid-forties, but each year does seem to take a toll on our bodies. I think he'll have another 15 years or so before he has to worry about male menopause, but I love the witty references to the flashycars and skin-tight jeans. I knew a man approaching 60 who suddenly had his ears pierced, his hair permed and became desperate seeking a mate. Indeed, 46 is just a "wee launchpad," well penned! Love, Carolyn
