Many years, S-P!! My birthday is on Tuesday. I wonder if I can get my daughter's fish to drag a little banner around the fishtank? LOL.

Now that is classic!

And just think, it goes slow enough that you can read it...

Many Years!

Many years s-p!

Guess we're not having turtle soup with that cake, eh?

LOL!

Many years!

Your just a couple days younger than my Dad (I'll have you know that when I tell people his new age, they all say that he is still young). :)

Happy Birthday!

Clint, LOL! I'm thinking of renting Moo out to NFL Pittsburg Steeler games and he can drag banners across the field during half time for the fans. :)

Kirk, Many years to you too, brother!

Phillipa, We were just discussing whether or not turtle is fasting food. Moo is safe for a while, I still have a ton of plans for him. I may have to start a separate blog for him. :)

That is waaaaaaay better than an aerial banner. Aren't you glad your wife brought home a turtle instead of an aeroplane? Happy Birthday!

Mimi said...

Happy Happy Birthday and Many Years!

Awesome!

Clint said...

Yes, I like the football idea. Though I must admit that the Steelers are about third from the bottom of teams I could ever root for...

Thats right. I am a Cowboys fan...

How did I miss this? August 9th's a great day... my 29th and your 57th... the same. I'll be your birthday was cooler... which is why you're so cool, huh? Complete with cool pet.

Happy birthday, and many years... and let's hope this image posts:

Nope it won't.... so think of Heinz 57 flavors... and all that. That's something.

JtTH, and many years to you and the wifie. I think my birthday was about 112 degrees. Unless you celebrated your anniversary in hell, I think yours was cooler. :)

That is definitely in the top ten blog photos of all time.

Many years, s-p.

Thanks, Och. So far my favorite is still "The Tortoise King". My wife just shakes her head. William Wegman had his Weimaranars I have my tortoise. Let the fun begin.

Belated birthday greetings!

Technically, of course, 57 is still in the "mid" 50s, and you can get away with that until about 57 1/2, at which time I guess you could go with "early late" 50s. I'm not too far behind you here in my "late early mid" 50s...

Many years!
