Cheaper Than Therapy

Your Love Is a Green Hill

Big brother you
How do you do?
Come play with me Today

For tomorrow you'll be
A busy bee
And I shall miss your stay

A moment in the grass
Is all I ask
With a ball and a little sun

Upon this hill
We'll roll until
We've had our share of fun

Big brother you
How do you do?
I know your time is Gold

But keep in mind
Your gift of time
Is a treasure at least 10-fold

So when the time has come
That green hills are done
And we've moved onto something new

I know I'll recall
My love above all
For the hill and Big Brother You


  1. **sniff sniff**
    Your right. I would cry.
    It's beautiful, hun. And a reminder of how swiftly things pass.

  2. This stuff gets me right in the throat. And the heart. Cut it out already.

  3. I love your motto and the poem. I need to hear that. Thanks!

  4. I have a lump in my throat the size of a grapefruit!!!

  5. The poem and pictures are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

    Happy ATWT!

  6. Posting this here as well as on my blog. Wasn't sure if you'd go back to see my response!!

    We'd love to have you Andy!! And be we, I think I mean me. Cuz John seems to like when people LEAVE not ENTER!! (Just kidding...sort of)

    The house is only 2200 sq ft but we DO have 2 extra bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. I assume you could all find room to hunker down. :)

    Oh and we have a decent size fenced in yard that you're welcome to camp in. Of course, you'd have to contend with a periodically cranky wiener dog. But he doesn't bite ALL the time!!


    Hoping to have a big TIKI party in August. You'll come and scope out your new living space
