I consider myself very lucky to still be friends with some of the people I went to primary school with - one of them being Lynn, a girl I used to do calisthenics with as well, has celebrated her 50th Birthday.
It is so great that we have been able to keep in touch - thanks to modern technology ;-)
So, here is the card I made for her.
The verse reads:
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 exercise
Like you’ve never done befora.
Okay; that’s good; you’re finished;
Now you can take a break;
You’ve finally burned enough calories
To have your birthday cake!

Here we are at Lynn's birthday 1970 (we think!).....
and here we are 40 years later!
