Over The Hill At Forty
So it's your fortieth birthday;
Four decades have gone and passed....
They say when you get older,
Time goes twice as fast.
I wouldn't know, of course,
Since I am still quite young,
But for you, the music is over;
Your last song has been sung.
You're just over the hill at forty;
You went down without a fight.
Time rushes on, and soon
That "hill" will be out of sight!
Happy Birthday Anyway!

A Birthday Workout
Hike across green Ireland;
Bike the USA;...
Backpack through New Zealand,
But don’t call it a day…
Do yoga in lovely Paris;
Jump rope in Katmandu;
Avoid Italian pasta,
(Well, maybe taste, but don’t you chew!)
Climb atop Mt. Everest;
Do aerobics on China’s Wall;
Lift weights on Mexican Beaches;
And honey, that’s not all…
Shake your booty with native dances
In Fiji and Bora Bora;Move your body and exerciseLike you’ve never done befora.
Okay; that’s good; you’re finished;Now you can take a break;
You’ve finally burned enough caloriesTo have your birthday cake!
The day after your Birthday
The day after your birthday,you look in the mirror to see:
a) you've got a zit from eating all that cake;
b) your love handles expanded a half inch;
c) singed your eyebrows blowing out the candles.
The day after your birthday,
a) you require six extra hours of sleep;
b) you can't find your livingroom under birthday debris;
c) you wonder how you could possibly have done THAT.
The day after your birthday, it's time to:
a) return some gifts (what IS that, anyway?);
b) call your friends and apologize for yesterday;
c) get out of the country, fast.
The day after your birthday...
we should all look so greatand have it so good!
