Happy Birthday to me! [Jul. 18th, 2004|12:12 am]
Peter Sheil
The day draws to a close as I sit and type this.
Not any old day, but the 50th anniversary of my birth! :)
50 years ago, at a bit after 9 AM a 6 pound bundle of humanity popped out into the world, took a quick look around and then found it couldn't go back again. Since then it's been down hill all the way for me. ;)

I've had a good day today; nothing especially exciting but a very pleasant meal with my Mum and sister and a slurp (or two) of champaigne (well OK it's actually the Spanish version but still good).

I'm too tired for a long post now but I will thank everyone who sent me cards, texts or other messages. Also Mum and Mary for two crystal glass wine glasses and a blue harbour top, and Kim for four books.

A reflective time; what have I achieved? where am I going in life? who will remember me when I'm gone?
It's OK, I'm not sad just thinking and reflecting. My situation in life is quite different from my expectations, as some of you are aware, and I'm not sure where I'm heading for or what I want to achieve in my life.

Peace and happiness to you all. May all your little generousities turn to flowering blooms.
(((hugs))) to you all, my on-line family.

It's still your birthday in my country! :-D Happy birthday!!!!!

:::everybody sing the Viking Birthday Dirge to the tune of the Volga Boatmen:::

THE VIKING BIRTHDAY DIRGE

It's your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Doom and gloom and dark despair
People dying everywhere!
On your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

It's your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
May the candles on your cake
Burn like cities in your wake.
On your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

It's your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Burn the castle and storm the keep
Kill the women, but save the sheep
For your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

It's your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
Black Death has just struck your town
You yourself feel quite run-down
On your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

It's your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
May your deeds with sword and axe
Equal those with sheep and yaks
On your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

It's your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
This one lesson you must learn
First you pillage, then you burn
On your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

It's your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)
When you've reached this age you know
That the mind is first to go
On your Birthday! (thud!) Happy Birthday! (thud!)

Oh thanks, that makes me feel much better;) :)))

It's good to know I should pillage before I burn!

Peace

::giggle:: I just *had* to because someone sang it to me on my birthday on July 4 (Yes, I'm a Cancer, too).

See, I do have some good advice! ;-)

Thank you. Another 50 years? I wonder what the world will be like then? Yes, basically a positive attitude to the future with a few concerns.

Peace
