the divine miss L
(saturday, woodland park zoo)
but first, to set the stage:
not at sea
No, we're not on a ferry crossing the North Sea. Though that's pretty much how it looked outside yesterday, which, in Miss L's phraseology, would be "before this day." This day being her birthday.
And the weather is fairly fitting, given the weather 5 years ago.
That would be the night it rained so hard for so long that our basement flooded the first time, the night M, scheduled for induction at 6.30a the next morning, said to me "it's not going to make any difference, we can't keep the water out, let's go to bed" so I went to bed and a good, solid sleep, only to wake up the next morning and find that she'd been up all night bailing water.
But the weather isn't really today's topic. Today's topic is, Hello 5!
sleeping like a baby
HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY*, Miss L.
Many happy returns on the day!
And just for historical purposes:
Pooh looked on admiringly.
"I'm just saying 'A Happy Birthday,'" said Owl carelessly.
"It's a nice long one," said Pooh, very much impressed by it.
"Well, actually, of course, I'm saying 'A Very Happy Birthday with love from Pooh.' Naturally it takes a good deal of pencil to say a long thing like that."
"Oh, I see," said Pooh.
