Worthy of Note



I only post birthday greetings when they occur to me, whether said "greeting" is to a celebrity (living or dead), or a friend and/or fellow blogger. And if you've ever gotten one, it's probably the only one you'll ever get. Just sayin'.

Having said that...

Today (the 21st) I'd like to send out my best b'day wishes to one of the dearest friends I've ever made on the internet, the woman responsible for the My Five Men blog, a site with an eclectic mix of topics -- serious, humorous, and informative -- depending on her whims.

(Yeah, Betsy, I'm talkin' 'bout you!)

I'm not going to post an actual photo of her (although obtaining one would be remarkably easy, especially for the ol' Fox), nor am I going to list the many reasons why I think she's so remarkable, to save her just a tiny bit of embarrassment ...

But if she thinks I'd let her birthday go by without even a mention, she's nuts!

(And by the way, if you follow her blog with any regularity, you can probably guess what the two photos which I have included have to do with her, and her blog.)

Happy birthday, doll.


Aw, heck... I was going to end there, but I'll take the liberty of adding something else... and since the owners of "Happy Birthday to You" are very litigious when someone uses their lyrics & melody without financially compensating them, I will instead present Betsy with "The Happy Birthday Conga!" (Everybody join in, now!)

Happy, happy, BIRTH-day!
Happy, happy, BIRTH-day!
Happy, happy, BIRTH-day!
Happy, happy, BIRTH-day!
Happy, happy, BIRTH-day!
Happy, happy, BIRTH-day!
Happy, happy, BIRTH-day!
[repeat and fade]

And now, to the rest of you... Thanks for your time, and indulgence.

  1. Awww..David, you're THE best. Thank you! Now, how did you get that picture of me 'riding the waves'?? (The perfect title for my book and I have you to thank for that!) You're an awesome friend. Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I got something in my eye... haha.

    Interesting that you should bring up surfing, David. We've been having excellent sport down here in Newport with Igor pushing all that water ahead of him.
