Happy Birthday!
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

1956 - Homer Simpson, fictional character from the long running television show "The Simpsons"


Appropriate in it's own way (even if he is fictional) if you replace "mmmmm donuts" with "mmmmmmmm chocolate!" :lol:

Thanks for all the wonderful wishes everyone, I have been having a fantastic birthday and your warm wishes only make it sweeter :)

(Couldn't you just pop that little squirrel in the post please Cheery??? You don't have to send the cake and if he was over here he couldn't bother the red ones!)
