Video for Mom’s 80th birthday

As you know, Barb Welsch’s 80th birthday is May 14. We’re putting together a special video for her. We’d like everybody to record some video on your smart phone or camera–landscape mode!–and upload it (in .MP4 or .MOV format if you can) to the site using the form here. Record yourself and your family wishing her a Happy Birthday, singing the birthday song, recalling special memories, being goofy, and especially, reciting the poem below. Gary will edit it together into something coherent, and burn it to DVD.

One night in late October,
When I was far from sober,
Returning with my load with manly pride,
My feet began to stutter,
So I lay down in the gutter,
And a pig came near and lay down by my side;
Then we sang “It’s all fair weather when good fellows get together”,

Till a lady passing by was heard to say:
“You can tell a man who boozes,
By the company he chooses”,
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
