One fine day my friends son asked me for some peppermint Candy Since he had helped me weed my garden I laughed and filled a sack A friend had sent that lot of Peppermint sticks to me awhile back She had forgotten Im a diabetic and do not eat much candy,Randy. Randy grinned and thanked me as I had stuck five dollars in the sack I knew he deserved it and at fourteen he had things he had a lack Memory serves me R andy is now about my son's age a t least fifty But that day he had been such a help and how he did it was nifty Now that house and yard were long since sold , an error for sure But I have to let by gones be bygones for sure We live and learn often m ch too late but sometimes fate Changes our pathways unless we are not too late So now Im elderly, widowed and here at Westminister Vllla So I do endure and move on as bygo nes are gone I find happiness where I am at from dusk to dawn I would rather be here than be chased by a gorilla.

You still have a good memory being able to recall an event that happen a long time ago. We have to live in the moment to be able to grasp the happiness. You gave me a giggle visualizing you being chase by a gorilla.

As long as you are in a safe place that is warm and you have what you need that is all that matters.
