What’s a guy gotta do…

happy parents-to-be

… to get a birthday wish around here?

well, since no-one is stepping up, I have to do the tacky thing and say, well, it’s my birthday. 36 times around the sun. Golly me. Here’s a picture of me and Athanasia a few days ago on a little seaside holiday near the Polish border. A good time was had by all.

And while I’m at it, I may as well drop the news that ‘all’ is a little more than usual just now – we are expecting a baby around the end of February. Everything seems to be going well, so I guess it’s not a bad time to spread the good news. So there you go! Another wee Saint to join the fold.

hope you all have a nice day…

    Wooooooooooooo! Extensive forms of joy and gladness! Free candy and pastries for all! Let throngs of joyous celebrants fill the streets! Let loud 80’s music filled the air!

    Once you’ve determined and eliminated the sentence that is completely inappropriate, you will have my reaction.

    aww, shucks, thanks y’all… I’m just heading off to bed after very likely my mellowest birthday ever (but very pleasant – I’m a mellow guy, after all!), and that’s some nice energy to take along to dreamland. I will pass it along to the other relevant parties… -t

    Sorry to have missed it, but I had some techinical difficulties yesterday when I came to visit this neck of the woods.

    Anyways, I hope your child brings the two of you great joy, and Happy Birthday as well.
