Bluebee lives Down Under.  I’m not smart enough to be able to turn this text upside down so she’ll have to make do with being backwards instead:

Or this:

Bluebee, Birthday Happies

Maybe this:

It was an easy mistake to make – there are a lot of open spaces in the outback…

Bluebee matches interesting photos to interesting poetry.  She is always worth a look.

Happy Birthday, Bluebee.  Here’s your Birthday Poem

Happy Birthday to you
Bluebee don’t be blue
Be Smilebee, be Laughbee,
Be Grinbee, not sad
You’re older, you’ll moulder,
Be bolder, be glad.
Happy Birthday to you
Dear Bluebee, woo-hoo!

(Hey, if you want great poetry, you’ll have to write your own)

PS I couldn’t use your image because you are obviously an evil genius who won’t allow anyone to lift your picture.  

Kudos.

If you would like a birthday poem written in your honour, leave your date in the comment section.  Please write the month because different countries have different ways of writing dates (are you listening, America?).

    Are you making fun of us Yanks just because we’re once again the ONLY ones who write the month and day differently from the rest of the world? My question is, what’s the matter with us? It makes life very difficult to switch our brains back and forth when dealing internationally. You just have no idea.

    Funny. I’d love a birthday poem. But I’m too afraid. 🙂

      I only say nice things, sort of, based on ideas culled from your blog. So anything horrible and it’s your own fault.

      G’wan…you know you want to…

    When I saw the title of this email, I thought what a cute nickname for someone. The image set me right, though — what a beautiful bee>

    Since hubby forgot my birthday last year, maybe I can at least get a birthday poem. December 4 is my birthday.

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.
