CHRISTMAS 2011

We made it through another year
At times we weren't so sure
But things look pretty good right now
So here's the poem du jour.

SKIP'S BOOK GROUP

We partied some in Lauderdale
In Cocoa Beach as well

19 INCH
                            BASS
TILLAPIA
                            ON A ESTAZ MARIBOU DROPPER

And fished both places many times
Our lives were really swell

CAPE ROMANO

We made a Marco Island trip
A change of scene, and rest
We took the boat, and fished a bit
Relaxing was the best

TIGER TROUT

In early June we made the trip
To PA, catching Trout
The fish were few, but scenery great
That’s what it’s all about

In August, Yellowstone did call,
But it was not to be
Skip’s platelets dropped down way too low
So doctors we did see

SKIP IN MD ANDERSON

For forty days and forty nights
ME was by his side
Though beset with many unknowns
We took it all in stride

With her laptop and her cell phone
Her businesses she ran
She had a stock of Multilocks
And shipped them from her van
MULTILOCKS

The summer took another turn
We added to the stress
Because Skip proposed to M.E.

THE RING
YES

She actually said ...“YES”!






MS FLORIDA SENIOR in the BRANSON, MISSOURI
                    VETERAN'S PARADE

She did not have enough to do
decided she'd get crowned
"Ideal Ms Florida Senior"
For Branson she was bound

ME AND SKIP AT FLIFF


The Lauderdale Film Festival
Once more was lots of fun
We saw great films and met some stars
It kept us on the run

PAMELA
                            PORTIER AND GREG VON HAUSCH WITH MS FLORIDA
                            SENIOR
a
                            "Cougar" shot of me with the two
                            writers and leading men, Drew Pillsbury and
                            Martin Grey Gottlieb "ABOUT
                            FIFTY"

Our kids and grandkids all are well
They bring us lots of cheer
Jeri, Paige, Donna, Paul, Pamela
We do not see enough of them
The long distance hurts, we fear



Once more the year comes to an end
The holidays are here
We thank you all for your support
And WISH YOU LOTS OF CHEER.
