Numbers Count -- a poem, my number for you

[Click on picture for full screen view]

Favorite Number 

Numbers are my friends 
True friends just a few 

I wouldn't name names 
But for those special 

Some special to me 
I'll tell one to you 

Eighty-eight comes first 
A lady I know 

Our race car's lucky 
Number 88 

Had three Oldsmobiles 
Model Eighty-eights 

Mom was eighty-eight 
when dear mother died 

Morse code 88 
Tells "Love and Kisses" 
Now I've told you mine 
You can tell me yours

Actually we wanted 77 for our race car but that was taken
 - Meanings of 88, Wikipedia, all good!
 - Picture of car similar to our 1934 Ford three window

I like that 88 has been a repeating theme throughout life. There's something lovely about infinity on its side marking these moments in time.

Excellent - I didn't see where this was going, but it was a fun read. Thanks. Also, loved the graphic of Consul.

Interesting... Morse code 88 and all the associations make a nice poem.
