40 - 1

Happy 39th Birthday to me!!!

Birthdays always make me think of a child-hood friend (the daughter of the woman who wrote Apple Pigs). Like her mom, she had a gift for rhyme and an adorable British accent. And this is the song she would sing on my birthday

(Please add a veddy uppah crust British accent when singing and you must sing it in a high-pitched 6-year-old girl voice).

Happy Birthday to you
Squashed tomatoes and stew
I thought it was you
So I put you in stew

Thinking of you, silly friend.

Happy birthday, old girl!! (You're a whole 5 months older than me, after all...) Hope your day is stellar!! I'm glad today (well, yesterday) is your birthday -- it's also the anniversary of the day Beloved and I met. What a nice day to share with you.

Happy Birthday Liz! Hopefully you have been given the gift of health and are feeling better?

I have a delightful British woman in my life who is like a mum to me. The accent is so comforting - even though it is more her personality than anything, once I hear it, I just relax. Could totally hear her singing your friend's song, with giggles following.

Happy birthday, a little late!

I'm just a couple months older than you. 1969 was a very good year.

Belatedly, happy birthday (and yeah, you're 5 months older than me too! 1969 was indeed a good year.) Did you have a lovely day, or are you still sick? Or did you have a lovely day regardless?
