Happy birthday to you! (I'm not sending birthday wishes to the Pope, so I hope you feel suitably honoured!)

Hope you have a great day.

I'm with greenishlady.

A very happy and blessed birthday to you, Diane, and many blessings in the year ahead!

Pastor Eric said...

Have a great day!

I'm sending you a singing BDay card. Not like you'll get from any parishioner.

Happy Birthday again and again and again.

Did you get to meet Yung Hee? Have I slaughtered the name too badly? Clearly my cell phone connection has issues, doesn't it Dr.? (tee hee)

Diane said...

Fran, that is an interesting question. I talked to her on the phone, but when I went to the house tonight she wasn't there and nobody knew what I was talking about (and almost nobody spoke English, either). I will try again tomorrow.

Kievas said...

Happy birthday--you're in a very interesting group!

Jan said...

Happy Birthday! And tomorrow is my son's 23rd!

Marsha said...

Woo Hoo! Happy Birthday, Blog Pal!

MikeF said...

Happy, happy, happy b'day - if a bit late!

Mary Ellen said...

Happy Birthday, again, Diane! Wow, just about everybody on the blog seems to be having April birthdays! Mine was last Monday...how do all we Aries get along so well? I thought we were supposed to be hot tempered and competitive? Ok...I'm a little hot tempered, I'll admit it.

Mary Ellen said...

I wonder how long it took Dusty to get those little moves she made when she sang down pat? Those were the days...I was kind of young then, but had an older brother that watched American Bandstand all the time, and I'd watch it with him, from what I was told.

Diane said...

Mary Ellen, I did not see Dusty much when she was popular, either, but there's a great new CD by Shelby Lynne, where she covers all these old Dusty songs. "I Only Want to be with YOu", was my favorite, but I also liked "The Look of Love", (but I'm also a Bacharach/DAvid fan.

The Swandive said...

happy happy happy! whooo hooo! (belated - sorry I'm late for the party)

Rev SS said...

belated happy b'day wishes from me too ... hope it's the first day of a great year!

Lindy said...

I share a birthday with Oprah but even she is nothing compared to The Pope! Wow!

Me and Rowan... or, more properly, Rowan and I send more birthday wishes.

XOXO

Lindy

Hope you had a most wonderful birthday and I LOVED the videos!!!

Singing Owl said...

What Cathy said! FUN!

Presbyterian Gal said...

Late to the party, Diane....

Hope your day was Happy Happy!

And many more ahead!

dust bunny said...

Just a little late...
Happy Birthday!!!!!

gartenfische said...

Oh Diane. I decide to check out from blogging for a bit and I go and miss your birthday. :(

I'm sorry.

I hope you had a lovely one. Happy birthday a week---yes a whole week---late.

Cecilia said...

Happy (belated) birthday Diane! I hope it was wonderful.

And Dusty! I'm impressed.
