Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

They say it's my birthday

Well, not until 9:36 PM tonight, which is followed at 12:08 AM on the 22nd by the celebration of the nativity of Ms. Conroy.

We were born in the same city. In the same hospital.

Amazing but absolutely true.

So, lift a cuppa and sing with us. Our lives are deeply enriched for having known and loved you.

Happy Birthday dear Elizabeth!

That is cool about you and the Ms.

My Roberto, may he rest in peace, and I were delivered by the same midwife in our village one day apart back in '64! He on 18 JAN and me on 19 JAN.

Oh, Elizabeth, you were born the same day as my beloved mentor Krister Stendahl who died last week and would have been 87 today. May Godde grant you long years, and long years too to Ms. Conroy. Rejoice and celebrate! Glory to the One who creates us and sustains us.

Happy Birthday to you both!

O God, our times are in your hand: Look with favor, we
pray, on your servants Elizabeth and Ms. Conroy as they begin another year. Grant
that they may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen their trust in your goodness all the days of their lives; through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.

Late. I'm late saying Happy Birthday to both of you. REALLY late. Like a whole DAY late. And I hate being late. For anything.

So Happy Birthday, dear one.

A day late.
