Do I have to do everything!!!! Happy 12th Birthday to me....

Karen started it! She send a message suggesting it was my 10th! I will say to her what I said to the young gentlemen “poo pooing” Kevin Costner’s position as a celebrity in the Endymion parade saying he’s all washed up because he’s old - “With age comes wisdom and skill.” Their response - pointing at me “I’m with her.” :lol :lol :lol

So the nice part about a leap year birthday, I remember almost every birthday party I’ve ever had and there is no birthday stress for three years - then if the 29th is Friday - it’s mandatory to throw a party or leave the country. This year, a party. 2 bands, (Murphy’s Flaw Bluegrass and the Tipsy Kings) and food. Food Glorious Food. Pasta Putanesca Pesto Lasagne, Chicken Enchiladas with homemade roasted tomatillo sause, PO-Boy meatballs stuffed Bread, Smoked Salmon Beignets (I’m making these for ya ABGATERS), corn carrot mauque chaux and - no surprises here - A S’more Buffet for desert!!!

So clearly - the only thing missing is you.

OK, the candles are lit, you can start singing now.

Courtness! Happy birthyear! When you’re born on leap day you get the whole year, that’s just how it works.
Oh, and for your friends (as quoted above) a favorite quote, and one that I anticipate using more and more: "Face it, girls, I’m older and I have more insurance. "
Name that movie :lol

Oh, Oh! I know! Is this question just for Her Courtness? :slight_smile:

I can see it clearly, FGT, wait, maybe I should make those for my soiree.

Thanks Anne & Hope, you make me smile.

FGT - Sorry - Fried Green Tomatoes. I always thought they were just unripe tomatoes. Thank you food network for clearing that up.

Had I known you were planning a big party I would have posted a happy birthday earlier. I was going to wait until the big day itself.

Have fun at your party!

Only really special people get to be born on the 29th! :butterfly

May this birthday be better than your last but not as good as your next. :cake :bday :cake


Peace and Much Love


Courtness (beautiful),

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Jen/Gipper, You really covered it all, great job. Hope, you didn’t miss it, you were there with me. There was a moment during the bluegrass band where I just sat in my chair and imagined that great feeling you get on the tarps. I can tell you this, you can’t throw a party without great friends, and Jen, you’re up there with the best. Thanks for all your help.

See you’all soon,


:talk :giggle
