It's My Birthday Too, Yeah!

My friend Dixie Jane, mother of Laurie over at Glimpses of South Pasadena, wrote this lovely poem for me today, and I just had to share!  
Thanks again, DJ!


Let the celebration get started
And the banners all unfurl
Tomorrow is a day to remember
It's the birthday of Mister Earl.

Dixie Jane would not find a new beau
She's just not that sort of a girl
But she would fly the miles it would take
For a dance with Mister Earl.

It's memories you'll make
With champagne and cake
As we give the dance floor a twirl
Happy Birthday, dear friend, and many, many more
To the man we call Mister Earl.

Darn, Dixie beat me to the punch. And she's a much better poet. Happy Birthday, Earl; you're always a party.

Oh Earl, I'm doing the Happy Dance down here in Dixie just pour toi! I wish you were older than I, but alas nobody is. That said, I wish you a day full of friends and family and CHAMPAGNE!!!

Hey, that's pretty good poetry. Happy Birthday.

How come "they" call you Mr. Earl?

Mister Earl said...

Banjo: They often call me Speedo, but my real name is Mister Earl. You know that!

Click on Speedo

Mister Earl said...

Thanks, Karin! Thanks, Virg! And thanks, Banjo!

Thought I'd come on over here to join the party! Happy birthday, my friend.

There was a young man named Earl
A musician who made the ladies swirl
He loved to dance
And wanted romance
But never could find the right girl

Happy Birthday, Mr. Earl. Sounds like you are being pursued by a couple of southern girls. Head south, young man, head south.

Speedo??? OMG I just can't go there. :)

And now it's my birthday, almost. Tommorrow (8-3) is the day - another Leo.

I'm not sure I get it, but it's a hoot, and the Temptations are great. Earl it is then.

Not to be serious or anything drastic like that, but you SoCal bloggers are a pretty damned creative and witty bunch (I've just come from -K- at East of West LA). I can't get my "First Life" friends to give blogging a hard look, but you, AH, K, PA, and others demonstrate the worth of the work. Thanks for letting me come in from the provinces.
