The Birthday That Keeps On Giving

5 Oct

If I hadn’t already awarded last week’s CoWAbunger, I’d have to give it to Nancy for her prescience:

Phase 2: In which Linda declares that her birthday WEEK started yesterday . . . with 6 more days to celebrate.

How right could one person be?

On Monday I had a visit from a friend in the morning, who brought me these:

There’d have been a lot more to show you but Spud insisted on being allowed to eat one.

In the evening, another friend came with a lovely set of toiletries, assuring me no offence was intended.

Then yesterday, yet another friend, with these:

The last time I did so well for flowers, a small person came out of me.

I also received an email telling me I had won two tickets to a comedy night with – what did I do to deserve such blessings? – a free buffet.

I love the saying, Some days you are the statue; some days you are the pigeon.  Today, I am definitely a pigeon.

    A free buffet and actually, all of the edibles sounds real good to me. And of course, tickets for a comedy show ain’t a bad thing for a the Laughing Housewife either. 🙂

    coo roo-c’too-coo!

    (I know this is the sound pigeons make to protect their territory because, to make sure I used the right language when talking to you – as you’re no longer a fellow pirate – I looked it up and came across this very informative site!.html
    which told me more than I ever knew there was to know about pigeons…)

    Hasn’t my gift certificate for the new Mercedes arrived yet? Damn U.S. Mail! Or it could be the British postal system. Glad your good friends are there to pick me up.

      Don’t forget to visit when you come over. You can bring the Merc then 🙂

    I am DELIGHTED to hear that the celebration continues. What wonderful treats!

    And a Comedy Show . . . with food . . . for FREE ~ it doesn’t get any better than that. Take a notepad and “borrow” the best jokes to share with us here. 😀

      The Hub warns me that they will probably be quite rude, but I’ll save the clean ones 🙂

    You must have a fully-fragranced house by now!! 🙂

    Those cakes look good. Congrats on the comedy show tickets and the free buffet. If you need a guest to accompany you… 😉

      You wouldn’t be the first to mention that… 🙂

    Good for you… enjoy the accolades. 🙂
    Still catching up… kids in town from fall college break. 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
