He died there in 1900.

A birthday?

Just so you have enough time, my birthday is this coming Thursday.  I adore semi-sweet chocolate, clean smelling perfume and mystery novels without blood and gore.  Oh, and greetings in the comments--I LOVE that, too!


  1. Happy Birthday to you! There - you got everything you wished for - except for that clean smelling perfume thing. Oh well, maybe next year!

    Don't forget to check Facebook!

    Love - PT/Emmet

  2. LOL! I know very little about facebook and rarely go there, but I THINK if you write on a wall it needs to NOT be your own wall. Hadta really search to find a reference to chocolate, but finally found it. Thanks--ILY2!

  3. Happy Birthday. I am singing the casey jones birthday song for you...Hope you are having a fabulous day.
