dear ms b-sum of your parts

thats what you are
a sum of your parts

you see you are half moms and half dads dna
then you are one fourth gma
now i call her
my wife she
so she is your gma she
and me
no that doesnt stand for old granddad
its for organicgreendoctor

so that makes you
one eighth your gma she
one eighth ogd
ie gma/ogd

that makes you one sixteenth then one thirty second
of your little dna is from your gma shes mom
your great gma

i think ms b i have that math correct

now one day
lets see your almost 6 months now
when you are able to turn on the lap top
log on to the internet
in 1 and 1/2 years
from my observation of your generation abilities already to deal
with the electronic world

so then you will log on to
type in my ogd name
there will pop up
my branch of your ancestry tree
well documented and delineated for you to read about
thanks to
the hard work of your great uncles
my historian brother
my rainwater brother
all well researched and as accurate as can be
in great detail i may add
all the leaves on that branch
even a few knots and gnarly branches
all out there for you and others to see
thats what history does
it never lies it tells the true
not like history as it happens
history has a way of filtering out the truth

so yes theres some scruffy folks in there
sad to say some slave owners
one was a moonshiner
but most were the salt of the earth folks
that has built the best country in the world
to live in

its up to your generation to keep it that way

now lets look at your gma shes branch
now theres the lady
your great gma
thats your gmas shes mom

Image result for energizer bunny
she is known by all of us
as the
energizer bunny

heres why
first heres a youtube video of her
at 80
with her older sister
singing and dancing to an old hit
from years and years ago

now ms b
this weekend we asked her
where do you want to celebrate your eightieth birthday
so guess what she said ms b

vegas baby vegas

so all we went
a bunch of us
sorry you couldnt make it since there was a sudden family
thank goodness all turned out ok

now ms b being a nature lover like i am
i took an early morning trip
heck i got back before anyone got up
now ms b
theres a rule
what happens in vegas stays in vegas
i cant put the whole story in here
nothing good can come of that
remember that rule ok

theres other pictures
id better not post them ms b

the weekend culminated in a ride in a stretch limo
to where she wanted to eat for her birthday
guess what she wanted ms b
can you believe
not lobster or steak or sushi
it was
soul food

so off we went north of vegas in that limo
to a smaller quieter area
with music booming
liqiuds flowing
ms b youll have to ask your gma she about all this

who would have thought ms b that there in the west
in sin city was an oasis of
soul food
cornbread collards cabbage blackeyed peas etc
dont worry well teach you how to like this stuff
you come to the country n
we plan to indoctrinate you well
into the way 1/4 of your genes were programmed to eat
and live

well at least your great gma didnt dance on the table
she would have if we had let her

then at the end of the night
guess who was the last one standing
thats right
that little ole
energizer bunny
your dna donor
great gma

i just hope that you
have got some of that stamina and energizing energy
that she has given you

just slow it down some when you get old

this ms b
is a story of part of your whole parts

the organicgreen doctor
