Corky’s Birthday Accrostic

This is a day late because I fooled myself with “I’ll do it after the kids are asleep.”
And her name is Carol, but she is Aunt Corky to me.

Caring nurse and doggy mother

Original Trekker who took me to my first convention

Really good at jigsaw puzzles

Kind of in love with my kids and nephew

Y would I not love her a lot!

Erin’s Birthday Acrostic

Thanks for having a short name!

Enthusiastically befriended a bunch of crazy Greeks

Recognizes the need mothers sometimes have for several bottles of wine

Ignores my less than stellar housekeeping when she visits

Never underestimates the healing power of anything that is mostly sugar

Thana and Charlie

I had two birthdays this week that I didn’t get to write for, my wonderful aunt and my cheeky nephew.


Honestly, the best teacher I know

Authentic in all she undertakes

Newbie to the iPhone but learning quickly

Aunt and nouna to all


Happy enough to make you happy just seeing him

All the cheeks belong to him

Rambunctious doesn’t begin to describe it

Language skills, yo



Barbara’s Birthday Acrostic

Happy Birthday to my MIL!

Baking a lot of things chocolate

Always being “right”

Religious in that non-judgmental way

Bargain shopper who benefits all

Anything can be done on a sewing machine

Right handed (Repeat letters are hard.)
