We’ve threatened, promised, cursed, cajoled, but this is it, the last,
No cries of “foul”, no more false starts, this time we’re standing fast.
Suffice to say we’re still all good — but nothing much has changed,
The kids are great, and Mike and Lee aren’t noticeably deranged.
A sentimental time of sorts as we farewell the tome,
That piece of paper once a year that brought us to your home.
But friendship’s more than written words, some news, a laugh or two,
The Smitho’s gone, the friends remain — that’s it from us to you.
Have a great Xmas and a terrific 2008.
Mike, Lee, Alex & Ben
