Happy Birthday Rox--love, Bob.O

I had written a nice little ditty for Rox on her birthday, and hoped that I could transfer it to this machine at the internet cafe, but no go...

 

So here goes again...

 

Roxanne--as Jack Nicholson said in a movie we liked ´¨you make me want to be a better man¨  In this case, I have to say, and I know many would agree--you made me a better man, inspite of myself--So thanks for that and for everything else!!!

 

On our first date, we ended up at La Val´s in Berkeley putting down a few pitchers of beer and finding that we tending to agree on a lot of stuff and generally having a good time.  As the evening progressed, I got a little full of it and preachy, and at that point you decided that you wouldn´t be dating this jerk again...as we continued talking we discovered that we both loved to gamble at Tahoe, since we had both worked there during our college years.  To make a long story short, we jumped in that car and headed to Tahoe right then, gambled at two different tables in a off-season blackjack pit, and had the whole place in stitches as we just kept up a long line of happy jokes and fun thoughts...after that we were together almost every day, right up to today...Starting from the beginning--this is an entry that her dad, Mel, did for the Little Miss Sunshine contest...Rox%20Sunbeam%20girl%20cropped.jpg

So, for now, I wish to say Ëebs, you are not just my rock, you are my everything--I am what I am because of you...Happy Birthday and all my love...Bob-O
