Hey Susan...

In case you read my blog today ( I'm not going to hold my breath)....

Today is your birthday and I want to shout from a mountain top,

 (or from a post tucked inside an amazing blog that you should visit sometime, just sayin)

how special you are to me, how much I love you, and how my life would not be the same without you in it.

I want to say for the record you did the right thing ratting me and John out to Marmie when we ran away from home... you always did have a good, honest head on your shoulders.

There is no one else in this world I would have rather chased up and down the basement stairs, taking turns being the one in front getting their hair pulled from behind...(what piles we used to gather when Marmie made us sweep up the long strands). 

(You must have generously allowed me to be in front, which may explain why today I have half the hair you do.)

I couldn't imagine getting into a slap fest on Telegraph road with anyone else but you, it was neat how the car totally steered itself safely across three lanes of heavy traffic as we slapped each other, fighting over who loved Grandma more...


I know I've not said this before, but that dunce slap you planted on the back of my head on the crowded airplane, you know, the slap heard through the plane..well,  maybe I did (slightly) deserve that smack.

(that said,....I'm still patiently waiting for the perfect moment to return the sentiment)

Since this blog is mine and all about me I'm going to say that while today is your birthday and you should be the one getting a present, (all kidding aside) I am the one that got (and continues to enjoy) the best gift ever, y.o.u.

Those readers who grew up in the 70's may recognize this little diddy....

(to those of you who have no clue about this song, please scroll down to the bottom of this post for a short message about Miss Agnes' big day)


Space command to Zoom
All systems are go for your message to Susan!

Hey, Susan!
It's your birthday!
I'm in charge of the stars
And I'm here to say,
'cause Susan,
You're the BIG STAR today!

My name is Zoom
And I live on the moon
But I came down to earth
Just to sing you this tune
Hey, Susan,
It's your birthday today!

A present for you
I wanted to find
An outerspace creature
A one of a kind!
A wild whop or a kukelchoo,
An apple drop or a buzzardstew
Or maybe a 3-eyed tickleshay
For your birthday

Did you ask:
"uh, what's a kukelchoo?"
Well, up on the moon it's nothing new
But that won't do for you,
On your birthday!

I searched behind the clouds and stars
I even zoomed my bike to Mars
And met my friend the saucer man
And he said:
"Hey Zoom I got the bestest plan!
What your friend needs is something new,
So how about a song, just from YOU?"

And so tonight when you're in bed
I'll be singing to you as I zoom overhead
Singing, Susan! Happy Birthday
Singing, Susan! Happy Birthday
Singing, Susan! Happy Birthday
To you!

Happy Birthday, Susan!

PS... To all of you darling dear sweethearts who sent me an email wishing my Miss Agnes a Happy 100th Birthday thank you soooo much. I've printed them out and together with the ones I collected at work, the bank, the grocery store, the Micky D drive thru, I now have more than 100 birthday greetings to pass along to her. I am taking a couple of loveables and going over to her place at lunch time today. I can't wait to hand deliver the love...(and a chocolate/chocolate cupcake decorated with an over the top huuuu-gggg-e deep purple colored rose and 2  picks that say "50" (to represent 100)....


I'm hoping to post pictures....

Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
