I just liked this party hat, and I’m celebrating my 39th – and yes – it really IS my 39th!

    May God
    grant you always …
    A sunbeam,
    to warm you,
    A moonbeam,
    to charm you,
    A sheltering angel
    So nothing
    can harm you …
    to cheer you
    Faithful friends,
    near you
    And whenever you pray,
    Heaven to hear you.

    an Irish Blessing

    Happy Birthday, you sweet, young thing, you 😉

    Thirty-nine? Ahh, the fleeting beauty of youth. When I was 39, I was an evangelical boy and completely heterosexual.

    I think that’s my way of telling you the best is yet to come.

    Happy birthday!

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday
    May the candles on your cake
    Burn like cities in your wake

    Happy Birthday
    Happy birthday
    Now that you’re the age you are
    Death can not be very far

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday
    Hear the women wail and weep
    Kill them all, but spare the sheep

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday
    Indigestion’s what you get
    From the enemies you ‘et

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday
    May your deeds with sheep and yaks
    Equal those with sword and axe

    Happy birthday
    Happy birthday
    This one lesson you must learn
    First you pillage, then you burn

    …figured I’d bring out the Birthday Dirge…to the tune of the Volga Boatmen. More to be found here.

    Enjoy yourself. 🙂

    Merry Merry day of happiness on this your especial day. LOL. Have a great one, and many more to come. So glad you are leaving youth behind! It’s so much better on this the other side.

    39 is great. 40 is better. I loved 50. I will let you now about 51 when I get there in a couple of months!

    I like that you live out loud.

    Just stopped by to say hello – and what! Happy Birthday! Marvelous year ahead. My medicine cards say you will use discernment and courage to make your dreams happen. I say in my own words of age 39, “Keep on trucking, Mama…..”

    If you were closer to Newark I’d invite you to a belated birthday supper hopefully with one or more other folks Friday evening. I’ll be on my way to Salzburg. Of course you are welcome even if it is inconvenient!

    Happy one-day-late birthday to you
    Happy one-day-late birthday to you

    Happy happy birthday… yesterday. Sorry I am off by a day! Hope it was really neat!

  20. September 10, 2008 2:58 pm

    and I’m two days off…but one is never off by far when saluting a VIRGO on her Happy Birthday!

    Oh, Ms. Fluffy Fabulosa, I MISSED your b’day and I think I even wrote you an e-mail around then and did not note it. So sorry! I hope it was happy and worthy of you! XOXOXO Jane (and +Maya Pavlova)

    Oh, Fluffs! How could I go and miss such a major event? Surely a first-class feast with first vespers!

    [Now, how did the Opening Preces go?]

    V. It’s Eileen’s fault.
    R. O felix culpa!

    Make the celebration last as long as you can. I believe a month is seemly.

    Happy hugs!
