Happy Birthday Lanen!

A momentous occasion dor sure, dear friend!
I wish you a happy birthday

Here's your birthday cake. I'm not really good at cakes, as you know I love cooking but YOU are the baking lady, I am the cooking guy



I hope you have a nice day and evening. This coming year (read: the coming twelve months) will be a momentous year, I feel it in my half century old bones Special in ways of work, writing, friends and travel. Well... I wish and hope for all those things for you and keep my fingers crossed for all of them: they should be yours this year!

A happy 50th and many more returns my dear.
I'll toast you tonight with a good double, no make that a triple, shot of 10 years old Glenmorangie!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LANEN


I really *WISH* for your Birthday....that your Steven could be with you, on your special day. Knowing you two...I'm sure that you two have managed to find a way around the distance, and will be able to spend some time together.

I also agree with Hans, in hoping that this will be a very special year for you.

I am not worthy! Thank you so much, everyone - what lovely birthday wishes, and Hans, that's a great cake!

I had my big party on Saturday and am still recovering, so it wasn't so bad being alone much of the day. The cats and I did some impressive napping! Still, I began the day waking up at the home of the lovely Jane Yolen in company with lots of my dear friends, and you can't really improve on that.

Thank you for all the good wishes, my dears. I'll take all I can get! And Hans, I feel that too - I am SO excited about this proposal, just need to wave farewell to my old friend Sue and her son on Saturday to have enough time to work on it. Wheee - gosh, I think it may be quite liberating being 50...

What a great crowd. Thanks again, you wonderful lot.

A belated happy birthday to you, Lanen. I don't know how I missed this yesterday, but I obviously did.

Anyway, again Happy Birthday.

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
