Daily Ditty #21 - Peggy! (Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic)

Peggy Epstein Tanner. 

That 'bout sums it up - for all of us who know her. One of a kind. Queen of the hill and the top of the heap. I think someone already wrote that song. So here's mine. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PEG!

 That's Peggy, far right. (L to R - Custis Glover, Kim Donovan Henley, Beth Blatt a/k/a me)

(Sing along to this Police/Sting classic)

Though I’ve never tried to tell her

Of the feelings I have for her in my heart

But today I try to come up –

Try to sum up

What sets that girl apart –

 

Every little thing she does is Peggy

Every thing she touches turns to gold

Even though today she’s Birthday Peggy

We all know she never will grow old.

 

She is always give-give-giving

Of her time and tact and honesty and care

From Seeds of Peace to Walden

To our dear old Dartmouth –

She’s without compare

 

Every little thing she does is Peggy

Every thing she touches turns to gold

Even though today she’s Birthday Peggy

We all know she never will grow old.

 

I can’t help but call her up

A thousand times a day

And ask for some advice for me

She knows just what to say.

Doesn’t matter how big the problem

She shrinks it down to size

She makes smiling out of sobbin’

How’d she ever get so wise?

 

Every little thing she does is Peggy

Mother, daughter, sister, wife and friend

And a birthday wish for you, dear Peggy

May your gift for living never end.
