Happy Birthday!

Many happy returns to my stalwart co-blogger Steve, on his %$%^$*&#@th birthday, which he is spending in gay Paree with his lovely paramour. Have a wonderful time!

or, in another mode:

Hey, they cut off the last line: "Happy Birthday, you old bastard!" (Though that's obviously not appropriate here, so it's just as well.) I just hope simels lets me be Flanders to his Monty Burns for many years to come.

PS. For some reason, the last line of that scene just came to me. Mr. Burns turns to Smithers and says: "Have the Rolling Stones killed." Heh.

Happy Birthday, Steve!

The text of a recent New Yorker cartoon ("I did follow my bliss. It wandered around in circles and then ended up in an Arby's in Hoboken.") for some reason made me think of you.
Good to see *your* bliss takes you to Paris!

I used to live in Hoboken, actually. Although I don't think they had an Arbys at the time.

Many happy returns Steverino! Remember, it's a privilege to get older, some people don't. Have a great trip!! FD

Is it a coincidence that Steve, along with fellow rocker-of-Jewish-persuasion, Manfred Mann (ne Michael Lubowitz) were both born October 21, and that both went on to become music legends?

I think not.

In the native tongue of Dayton, OH: "Un tres joyeux anniversaire, monsieur Zimels!"
