Happy birthday, beloved…

I’ll admit it – in all the fervor of celebrating Talk Like A Pirate Day, I did let something slide by. But I wanted to save it, to give it a proper place. So, here it is.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY VICKI!!!! (yesterday, that is…)

So, stealing an idea from Amelia (who’s blog you’ll find a link to over on the right), I’m going to make a list. Now, Amelia only had to do 30, for Ked’s 30th. But, without revealing Vicki’s age, I think I’ll go for a bit more than that… Say… Um… oh… 45. Don’t have ANY idea why that number popped into my head. Really. No clue…
