Happy 2nd Birthday, Middle Ages


Art by Deb's Finger
Happy Birthday to us,
Happy Birthday to us,
Happy Birthday, Middle Ages,
Happy Birthday to us.

On April Fool’s Day, The Middle Ages turned Two.
It has been our joy.
It has been our job.
It has been our connection to the world.

We never would have believed it could be this lovely.
That’s what makes it a celebration.

Thanks to each and every one of you.
You know we love you all.

Love,
Deb and Barbara

  2. Happy birthday! Deb's finger art is fantastic! I found your blog, last March, just a few weeks before your first birthday and instantly fell in love. Your writing style was friendly, funny, and personal. I connected to the style and have loved coming here over the last year. It has been thought provoking and inspirational. I have laughed here and cried. I have sent virtual long-distance love and I have received it. It might be your birthday, but each day you give us a present. Thank you, thank you. Love you both! xxoo

  11. Hey, beauties! Thank you soooo much for the lovely wishes. I'll respond to all of you here (instead of individually) because I want to say a BIG shout out to all of you. Plus, Deb just contacted me and says she's having server issues and can't log onto any browser to weigh in here. I'm sure she'll have it sorted out later today, but she really wanted to make sure I thanked you on her behalf too.

    Okay: "I love you" husky!! So cute.
    Beatles "Happy birthday"! Yes!

    And you all HAVE to check out Rigel's gorgeous new glasses on her gorgeous face!

    Thank you!! xoxo

  18. I want to thank you for being there for us and treating us all with dignity and respect, and unconditional love. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't stumbled on your blog when I did. I truly believe we meet people for a reason at the times when we need them. I hope I can get to know each and every one of you and that I can somehow be of use to someone else. Thank you for allowing me in your loving circle

  23. Happy birthday!!! I guess I kinda made my birthday tribute to you yesterday... so I'll just say thanks to you all for letting me join in on this lovely thing you've got going :) <3

    ReplyDelete
  24. Aw, thanks you guys!! Love the endearing thoughts and love. Loved the piano variations, Karen. You guys are awesome.

    Deb sends her frustrated best wishes -- her internet is down down down. She can't get any reception and so can't even read these, never mind, respond (I know this thanks to the old-fashioned voicemail message). She hopes she will get it back in time to send me tomorrow's post to which I will then respond and put up. Fingers crossed that there are no delays!!

  25. Oops, PS, yes, Anne, that's the name of Colin's new show!

  26. Hey Barbara, She's probably already thought of this but...just in case ;) She can try going somewhere there's free wifi. Here it's at Starbuck's and McDonald's, to name a couple. I used to go park at McD's and sit in my car where it was quiet. Tell her, though, not to let the stress of the downed internet add to her already taut rubber band of stress. We'll all understand if tomorrows post is short and sweet, or not at all. Someone very wise once was overheard saying "Feces occurs". Yep, it doo.
    hugs & cute glasses Aimee :)
