We’ve won a few, we’ve lost a few
Sometimes we’ve gone under.
But we’ve held on to the retirement dream
Regardless of financial blunder.

I’ve made wonderful friends here
Way too many to mention.
But I will speak of one…Ed the Gypsy
He says he’s so poor he can’t pay attention.

What will the new year bring?
No one really knows.
I hope for a prosperous year
Not one that really blows.

My hat is off to all the members
Who have taken the time to say
How they have weathered the storms of life
And brought peace to their day.

Keep your spirits up
I have learned this time and again.
My JD will always be in stock
So here’s to 2010!

……bbbamI.....

Thanks Dreamer...

I thought about dedicating a line or three for a few more special forum members, but perhaps I should refrain........
