Happy Birthday, Samantha
Samantha loves to talk and I love to sit and listen to her. She has interesting thoughts.
Samantha, Grandpa(Tom) and cousin Ted
Samantha likes poetry. When she was very young I read to her a lot. One of the poems we both enjoyed was this one.
Isabel met an enormous bear,
Isabel, Isabel, didn't care;
The bear was hungry, the bear was ravenous,
The bear's big mouth was cruel and cavernous.
The bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you,
How do, Isabel, now I'll eat you!
Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry,
Isabel didn't scream or scurry.
She washed her hands and she straightened her hair up,
Then Isabel quietly ate the bear up.
This is the first verse of Adventures of Isabel by Ogden Nash. It is found in many poetry anthologies for children.
Samantha likes to act.
Samantha is about to kick the soccer ball. One of her nicknames when she played during high school was P.T. That's short for Pink Tank.

Have a Happy Birthday, Samantha, from Grandma.
